How I realized the importance of water?

Just when I was meandering in and out of my house, my mom called out to me and told me there was something wrong with the water pumping motor. I reached out to her as soon as I heard her voice. The thought of an empty tank was constantly bugging her. She added that without water it would not be possible for her and us to do the daily chores. I ran towards my room, which took me a while, to call my electrician. The person who I can rely on with my eyes shut. At times, he is lackadaisical and doesn't respond well. As usual, he told me that he was busy and would not be able to come. I told him that it was urgent and there's nothing we could do without his help. That's when I realized how important an electrician is. I sound like a square peg in a round hole in such situations. Jokes apart, I insisted him to visit us the following day and the call ended on an assuring note from his side. Meanwhile, we had the whole day ahead of us and thoughts of water running dry.

The Story Of A Hairdresser

  It had been a while since I last had a haircut. My mom also kept on disrelishing my grotesque appearance and after all was said and done, I visited my nearby Salon.

About A Short But Heartfelt Video On Instagram

Students get study material that helps them become knowledgeable and entertainers get a platform on which they can showcase their talents. Instagram has been recently acquired by Meta's(formerly Facebook) founder Mark Zuckerberg. Yesterday, I saw an informative video on Instagram and am here to shed some light on it. A teacher was asking his students about the weight of a not-so-fully filled glass. As expected, nobody thought logically and the teacher received different answers but of the same nature. He asked Melissa(one of his students), "How heavy do you think this glass is?" She said, "8 ounces." Meanwhile, another student gave it a thought and said 12 ounces. And finally, the last answer he received was 16 ounces. He(the teacher) said, "The absolute weight of the glass do
