Ants
WhoIsToSayWhatIsRight

The media sets an unrealistic expectation on body image for teenagers. Most fashion industries utilize media to garner viewership and consumership on their products. Industries select models based on their physical apearances to promote their product. This is usually done by editing the photographs to make men look bigger and women smaller, most of the time these are unreal and false figures that viewers are deceived into believing. For example, the recent controversy that Target edited an image...

Gandhigiri is relevant today. I would like to oppose the motion. Let us start by stating the example of India and Pakistan. As you can well observe, there are terrorist attacks, bombarding, bloodsheds, and none of the countries living in harmony. Is this what Gandhi wanted? He has given us such ideologies to work upon, shouldn"t we respect his thoughts and views. No one can deny the fact that we have failed to follow the footsteps of Mahatma Gandhi. I would like to ask you, are we putt...
