We are entering 61st year of Indian Republic. We are living in an era in which girls and boys are considered equal. Girls are doing everything what a boy can do. Then why is there so much of discrimination? Why the birth of a girl is still considered an omen? Why the mother kills her baby girl growing inside her? The mother is also a woman who is giving birth to the child. Female infanticide is not the wish of mother alone; some mothers have to do this under pressure from her family, in-laws and husband. Why don’t the people think that the mother who gave them birth was also a woman? If she was also killed before her birth, then their existence was impossible.

After a whole day of studying, I just opened my laptop and went to gmail to check my mails. Uhhh… I was surprised to see the new bright colored favicon of Google. At least in 2009, they got to know that we are not in the ‘Black and White’ world of 60’s.
Just as we Indians celebrate ‘Dhanteras’ before ‘Diwali’ as our shopping day, in US also people celebrate ‘Black Friday’ and ‘Cyber Monday’ before Christmas as their shopping days.
On Black Friday, people shop from ‘traditional brick and mortar’ stores.
Why is ‘Black Friday’ called ‘Black’?
Until this extremely busy day, retail stores operate ‘in the red’ and on this day they sell lot of merchandise to make a good profit (or be ‘in the black’).
On Cyber Monday, people shop from online stores. In US, internet is much more prevalent, so online retailers also get a special advantage. Black Friday is the day after Thanksgiving. This year Black Friday falls on 28th Nov. and, following it, is Cyber Monday on 1st Dec.
