Camel Snus


While smoking you intake oodles of unhygienic nicotine. But if you get a smokeless tobacco which is flavored and spit-less, and is comparatively less harmful than chewing tobacco or nicotine, you will always want to have it anyhow.


Snus: Snus is actually a Swedish word used to refer the moist snuff. This snuff is primarily manufactured and consumed in the countries like Sweden and Norway. Snus is subjugated to a particular heating treatment process that stridently reduces the micro-organism content from it. Till 1981, fermentation process was not introduced to this particular product.


Camel Snus: Snus is basically a smokeless and spit-less product, and therefore is liked by the young people. Unlike chewing tobacco or cigarettes, Snus affects comparatively less. The Camel Snus is manufactured in Sweden by British American Tobacco PLC.


It is a smokeless and spit-less tobacco derivative, which has approx. 0.4-1.5 grams of tobacco which is pasteurized and portioned, and then available into powdery form into small pouches or bags like that of the teabags. In order to use Camel Snus, just put the pouch between the inner cheek portion and the lower portion of the upper lip for a duration of few minutes to hours as per your choice and can seduce the aroma of the product as well as the nicotine content.


The Camel Snus manufacturing venture was solely started by RJ Reynolds on 28th April 28, 2006, and the product was initially introduced in the areas of Austin, Texas and Portland Oregon. This Camel Snus was further introduced to eight more states. In the month of May, 2008, RJ Reynolds took Camel Snus into the key markets of Chicago, Los Angeles, Atlanta, New York and Washington, D.C. The next step was the introduction of Camel Snus to the world. This could be only possible if the brand is advertised and promoted well. For that, Camel Snus used the print medium to advertise, and till February 2008, Camel Snus was advertised in a printed form. But this was not satisfactory and not a viable marketing source.

Your eyes



I have seen your eyes shining with life

Living in a slum one may wonder

How you had that spark in your eyes

But amazingly, you had it,

Swaying the crowd and making your path

You always had the winning attitude

Devoid the fact you are a slum-dweller

Hunger and poverty were your best friends

Your most cherished dream was bread

And most likable hobby being earning it

Still you played, sang and danced,

You hoped, you dreamed,

And facing the daily nightmares, you screamed.

But as the gloomy night turned into a shining day

All your nightmares were swayed away,

You begin restoring all your hopes and dreams

For a new song and a new play..

Rainy Day


It's raining again,
I lost my umbrella
of love,care and pain,
and now seeking the one
who can lend me an umbrella
as I am wet
with the pours of sky
and cannot find the way
to escape
as it's raining again..

Painting Redefined


If you want to nurture your excellence in any art form to express your inner expressions, you can easily do it through the art of painting. Painting is just not a line drawn on a piece of paper with colours filled into it, but is an expression of the artist who views this world with his own perspective. Here, the perception of the artist matters a lot. If the artist has no clue about what to draw and how to draw, he or she can not be a successful artist, no matter how well he is with his painting brushes and art pencils. A painter expresses whatever he feels about the world he watches and the impression of that keen watch is his creation-‘Painting.’

The creation is often affected by the various mood swings of the artist. Many a times, the atmosphere also contributes in the artist’s creation, affecting his creativity. A creation can also base on the expressing ability of the artist. A meek artist in a sombre mood cannot draw something which will show his rebel attitude, but at times, this artist can create a rebel masterpiece using bright and rebel colours, bringing out his expressions of fury. If you can visit an art gallery, you can see that an artist has chosen a single subject and has painted around that subject in different perspective. For the artist, the subject he is working on is his world for the time being. The various moods of the subject help the artist to get a new subject out of any single subject. In this way, an artist creates a single set of painting which actually revolves around the subject. Often the artist’s mood swings change the perspective of the subject. Often it is the change of the mood of the subject or the entire look of the subject which changes the outlook of the artist. The observer too, has his own perspective to define things, and he or she may not be able to think as the artist thought while he was painting. If the artist is able to reciprocate his ideas well to the viewer, it’s good. If he failed to reciprocate his ideas, it is much better, because the viewers can develop a new perspective while he/she observes the painting painted by the artist. The observer can relate the painting’s perspective with their life, and thus, can appreciate it cordially.

• Be confident

If you have confidence in you, you can achieve anything you want. Knowledge never makes you successful, self-confidence does. Believe in yourself and do what you think is right. But beware of over-confidence. Though self-confidence and over-confidence has a common word ‘confidence’, but they are quite different in their meanings and fallouts.

• Set your personality according to your profession

You shape your personality according to your profession. Say, if you are an RJ or a DJ, you need to have a fun-loving personality.

How self motivation helps to improve ourselves


Self Motivation is one of the essential qualities one should have in order to achieve anything. Self-motivation is an endowment which helps you to satisfy your desires and drives you forward to your ultimate goal, without taking any help from others. Self-motivation is necessary for all the people who want to be successful. Often it also helps one to combat depression and imperfections one has.

Ways to motivate oneself

There is no magical formula to motivate a person if she does not want to do it. But once she chooses to be motivated, she can overcome any kind of depression or failure. The voice has to come from within. There are few easy ways to be self-motivated. Given below are a few steps that can help you out:

• Keep a positive attitude towards life

Try to stay always positive in anything and everything you do. If you are getting worried on each and every thing you do due to your negative vibes, just give this a try- whenever you find ten reasons why you can’t do it, get hundred reasons immediately in your mind why you can (should) do it. In this way, you can easily combat your negative vibes and can stay positive.

• Be with your inspiration, always

Whatever inspires you, keep them handy. Say, if you feel certain color inspire you, use the particular color in your workplace. There are also certain objects that inspire and motivate you, like a family photograph, a precious gift from someone special, etc. You can also keep them around as a source of inspiration and motivation.

• Get a good company

Good company and good books are rare and precious. Getting a good company of say, your friends, family, colleagues, etc. will keep you in high sprits. Often, when you are depressed, you can get a good advice to overcome it. Often a good company can provide you new and innovative ideas as how to improve your prospects.

• Stop thinking too much

Don’t think always,-“what if I can’t”. If you think too much, chances are there for you to loose what you could achieve today. Thinking about the future and acting accordingly is good. But when you think too much about the future, you tend to loose the focus on what can be achieved today.

• Try to do one good thing a day

Try to do a good thing every day. You can help a needy relative of yours, helping your mother in her household work, saving your pocket-money by cutting the travel expenses and giving it to your dad at the time he needs it, coaching little street children during the holidays, and anything that just satisfies you. This will help you to get motivated.

• Know yourself well

If you know thyself, then you must be aware of your skill sets, abilities and your strong side. But if you never gave it a thought, it is the time to know yourself. Knowing yourself is not only about finding all the good qualities in you, but also to analyze ‘you’ critically.

• Try to do things which inspire you

Do everything that inspires and motivates you. Sing, dance, play or just enjoy life the way you wish. If you wanted to do anything in your life, this is the right time to cherish your dreams. Go and taste all the flavors of life today!!

• Be a self-starter always

Last but not the least, be a self-starter always. If you want to start up a new thing, just don’t waste your time to think the distant results. Plan and do immediately as the idea strikes your mind.

Healing through Meditation


One of the best ways to relax and heal your mind, body and soul is through meditation. Meditation is one of the most popular alternative therapies which had its roots in India but is now practiced all across the world for its proven results.

What is Meditation?

The act of concentrating the mind on any particular subject is Meditation. Meditation is one of the vital exercises in yoga therapy and is practiced with a peaceful mind. Almost all the religions are based on meditation. Meditation was practiced in the ancient times by rishis and munis in order to achieve salvation or moksha. There might be variations in practicing meditation but the attainment is based on your concentration level. Even medical science has certified meditation as one of the best alternative healing therapies.

How to meditate?

Often people want to know how to meditate and what are the guidelines they should follow in order to meditate. Though there are various ways and forms to meditate, here’s is a guideline for the beginners.

• Find a clean and calm place

In order to meditate, make sure you have a suitable atmosphere for it. The environment plays a vital role in meditating. You can practice good meditation in the early morning in a peaceful green lawn or a park. You can also choose a cozy and peaceful corner in your home. Make sure nobody interrupts or disturbs you while you are practicing, as your mind then gets easily distracted and you lose focus.

• Sit with your legs crossed in the posture of Padmasana

Padmasana is one of the most recognized postures all across the world for meditation. As you sit erect with your hands in your lap, you can actually get the essence of meditation. Sitting erect in that particular position gives your spine a stretch and thus erases the spine related disorders.

• Breath deep and inhale the fresh air around

Breathe deeply in and out. This activity will let the proper oxygen circulation flow in your body and you will find yourself more rejuvenated.

• Close your eyes and calm your mind

As you close your eyes, you will find everything turning dark. But as you start concentrating on a single object or thing, you will find all except the object is blurred. You need to calm your mind before you meditate. Leave aside your day-to-day worries as soon as you sit to meditate. If you are not able to concentrate on a single object, you will not be able to meditate. Loosing focus is a major mistake one does while meditating that should be avoided.

• Focus on a single object until your mind sticks to it

Focusing, focusing and focusing are the three golden rules for meditation. The object can be as small as a needle or as big as an elephant. No matter what the object is, just concentrate and focus on the thing. Try to avoid your present worries and just calm your mind to the object of focus.

Golden Rules to Success


According to the famous arts person and educator Corita Kent- “Life is a succession of moments. To live each one is to succeed”

Since your childhood you cherished a dream, a dream to achieve success. Success is something you can’t measure. You work honestly and efficiently in your office and you get promoted. You now hold a higher position in your office. But you are not at all satisfied with your work profile. If this is what you call success? Of course, this is not the success you wanted. You wanted an environment and the profile that could suit you. You wanted to succeed in whatever you do. You want to succeed in your day to day life, in your professional front, your relationships, social life, and even in the card games you play with your friends. So, let us find out if there are any golden rules to success.

Success is an abstract unquantifiable term. That is, everyone has his/her own definition. You can’t say you are successful unless you feel satisfied. Satisfaction is somehow connected with the success. And when you are satisfied with anything, you feel you have succeeded.

Success in your personal life

How can you define success in your personal life? Say, you are married with the richest and the most handsome man, or you possess a very charming wife with cute children. Can you say you are successful in your personal life? So what you and your spouse never share equal levels of understanding, you guys appear as a perfect couple in any party or within any social gathering! No, this is not, of course, a successful married life. Even if you never appear as a perfect couple in your friends' circle, you can share a good level of understanding with each other and are really having a happy family. In this manner you are successful in your personal life.

Same in case of your friends, close relatives and parents too. You can’t say you are successful in your personal and social life until and unless you are maintaining a congenial relationship and a good level of understanding with them. In simple and straight words, if you are happy with the people around you are having or maintaining a successful relationship with them.

According to Albert Schweitzer- “Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.”

Success in your professional life

There is no fascinating blueprint to achieve success easy in your professional font. As people say, if you can work hard, you can achieve success. But you believe if you can think differently from the others, chances are there for you to achieve success in your professional font. But even if you work hard or think differently from others, you are not on your way achieving success. Even if you are promoted in your office with a good appraisal, you are not feeling contended and from within, you are not feeling the taste of success. So, do you consider it a real success in your professional life? Actually, no. You want that peace of mind and satisfaction in whatever you do. For a student too, success in the real terms could be not achieving more marks but enjoying the career or the course he has chosen.

Scour for success in whatever you do

You need success in each and everything you do, from cracking the worst jokes within your friends circle to prepare a presentation in your office. You want to be known as a successful man. But no man is perfect, so no man in successful in all the fronts. It is quite tough to be jack of all trades and master of many, but of course, not impossible.

If you set and prioritize your goals properly, have an effective plan of action and work honestly following them, you can easily get the success mantra within your hands. Make sure, you listen to your heart and do the right. This will make you contended, and this contentment will make you feel like successful from within.

Building your self-confidence

The world is really moving fast. As fast as you can’t afford to blink, have any flaw on your part, which pushes you off from the other competitors. Often, you are too good in your area of strength and excel in that but you fail in an interview just because you are not confident about yourself.

What is Confidence?

Self-confidence is often mistaken for over-confidence. But over-confidence means believing that someone is capable of doing something or everything, with connotations of boasting, when they actually cannot. While self-confidence is defined as having faith in herself. While over-confidence is a negative characteristic, self-confidence is positive. Often confidence is mixed up with self-esteem, which is also a positive aspect, but not similar to confidence.

Then what is confidence? Confidence is actually the state where you are certain about somebody or something. This is a state of the mind in which you faith your capabilities, combat useless fears and feel convinced with your expertise.

Confidence as a psychological quality is related to, but distinct from, self esteem. Confidence may be considered to be made up of a number of components. For example, Confidence Club defines confidence in terms of 5 components : 'social confidence', 'physical presence', 'stage presence', 'status confidence' and 'peer independence'.

Helpful tips to boost up the confidence

Though there are no particular parameters to boost up your confidence but few helpful tips to enhance your confidence.

Ø Identify your capabilities

You know that you have the potential and skill required for a particular work. So, there is nothing to worry. When you have mastered your area, make it your strong point and combat all the unnecessary fears.

Ø Avoid or neglect your negative vibes

Don’t ever try to boost your negative feelings, say, what if I fail? Or, what if I don’t get selected in the exams? If you have given your best shot in the exam or an interview, give yourself hundred reasons why the examiners or the interviewers will select you.

Ø Try to stay calm

While you are waiting for an interview call sitting in the corridors, it is natural that thousands of queries and confusions are creeping out from your mind. It is quite difficult to keep your mind at rest and calm. But in order to get success, you need it.

Ø Do not let anyone to rule on you

Often, in order to confuse you, many of your fellow members will try to frighten and impose something. Simply avoid that if you fear what those fellow interviewees or examinees say, you had made it clear that you are not letting anyone to rule on you.

Ø You know what you do or say is right

If you have mastered your subject matter, make it sure you put your words and phases in such a manner that what you say or what you do is absolutely to the point and correct. It never means that you utter 'bullshit' and expect them to be recognized or appreciated everywhere.

Ø Target on long-term goals

You dream for the big managerial position you like yourself to be at after ten years. In order to fulfill that dream of tomorrow, you need to face the challenges of today. The challenge today is to stand upright and make the most out of the opportunities that are at hand at present.

Ø Don’t lament on your short-term incapability/failure

You gave your best but couldn’t achieve. Fine. One time failure doesn’t mean failure forever. If you failed today, find out the reasons why you failed and trace your areas of improvement. Once you did that, you can easily achieve success the next time.

How to Mend Strained Relationships


Often it is quite difficult to maintain a perfect balance between your personal and professional lives. Mostly you devote your time to your professional life and the family gets less of your attention. Often your personal problems tarnish your professional life. Especially the working women find it quite difficult to keep a perfect balance between the two. These often result in a stained relationship.

Beginning of Strained Relationships

If you are a working, you rush to the office as early as possible and start off with your work. You work the whole day and are not able to answer any of your phonecalls properly, be it from your friends, relatives, spouse or children. You work the whole day and sit late as professional life becomes ever more demanding. You usually return home very late in the evening and feel completely exhausted. You, at this moment, are not at all capable to attend any social gatherings or a party. Your relatives or close friends, who were expecting you in the party, get offended. They can’t understand that most of the time you are bound to invest to your professional life. Worst of all, your very own loved ones, for whose well-being you are making all this professional effort, tend to misunderstand you.

Continually remaining Strained

A friend wants to meet you after a long time. She will be leaving the city in two or three days. But you are not able to spare time from your professional life and are not able to leave your office early. A new project is to be discussed in the office and the management needs you. All your plans are washed away and you again hurt your friend's feelings. After thousand and fourth sorry, she rings you back to talk. But you have no time, again. Often, if you are happily married, with children, you are not able to attend the first stage performance of your child when he expected you the most. This continues the strain in relationships.

Mending is not easy

When the relationships get strained, they can’t be easily mended. These relationships need time and personal healing. Generally you don’t want to strain any relationship, but it helplessly does! It is always not the time factor. Another major thing is also involved-‘understanding’. The better the level of understanding is, the healthier your relationship remains. So, to make the person feel that you care for him or her, it is not necessary you need to call and check on them all the time. Or attend all social gatherings. The person in question here might get a little disappointed when you are not able to devote a lot of your time. But they would understand that your profession also needs you which can, be at times, very demanding.

How To Mend

Now the trickiest part. How to mend?! Though initially it seems that strained relationships are difficult to mend but a little care can mend it easily. It needs your personal care, and most importantly communicating with your near and dear ones. Communicating heals most of the problem. You need to make them understand why you were not able to attend the party or the social gathering, why you didn’t call him or her on the days he/she waited for you and why were you not able to meet him/her knowing he/she is leaving the city in two or three days. You need to make them understand that they are really important to you; even you call them up or not.
