Strike out your 2017 mistakes and move into 2018 with a fresh note.

When I started using pen in my primary school, and I made a mistake, I would try hard to erase it before submitting to my teacher.

Sometimes, I use chalk to clean my mistake but it later re-appeared.
So I began to use saliva, it worked, but only to leave holes in my books.
My teachers then used to beat me for being outrageously dirty. But all I tried to do was to cover my error.

One day, a kind hearted teacher who loved me so much called me aside and he said, ” Anytime you make a mistake, just cross it and move on” .
He said further ” Trying to erase your mistakes would only damage your book to nothing.

I told him in protest that I don’t want people to see my mistake.
My loving teacher laughed and said ” Trying to erase your mistake will make more people know about your mess and the stigma is for life”.

Have you made some mistakes in life? Cross it over and move on.
Don’t expose yourself as a result of trying to cover your mistakes.
Better things are ahead of you.
Strike out your 2017 mistakes and move into 2018 with a fresh note.

What is Diwali Bonus & How it started?

“What is Diwali Bonus and Why is it given?”

This post covers the story behind Diwali Bonus and Why is it given?

Initially there was a concept of salary to be paid on a weekly basis to the workers in India, particularly the textile and flour mill workers in Bombay.

So you received 52 salaries in a year.

But when British started ruling India they came up with concept of Monthly salary which meant you were getting paid for 48 weeks only.

So if we have 4 weeks in a month, 13 salaries should have been distributed but as per a monthly structure they were giving only 12 salaries in a year.

When people realized that this was a loss to them in terms of one salary many protest rallies were organised in Maharashtra during 1930-1940.

The British then came up with a solution to this problem.

After discussion with labour leaders about how to distribute this 13th salary and they decided Diwali being the biggest festival of India, they would distribute this 13th salary durring Diwali.

“Today this is called the Diwali Bonus.”

This was implemented from 30th June 1940. Many don’t know the history behind the Diwali Bonus and hence this post.

“And today” This 13th salary comes as “DRY FRUITS”.

What are you getting as Bonus this Diwali?
