PM Modi was Seen Plogging at Mamallapuram Beach

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is a name that needs no introduction. He is a man of words, what he said, he does. As we know he is so strict regarding preserving Mother Nature and preserving our environment. That’s why he encourages everyone to avoid the use of plastics in daily life and he is the man behind launching Swacch Bharat Mission in India to encourage everyone to make India neat and clean. Recently, we also him on a cleaning spree at Tamil Nadu’s beach, Mamallapuram ahead of meeting with Chinese President, Xi Jinping. Most of the individuals have appraised Modi for this act while some are making fun of him by saying, cleaning plastic with plastic and some other comments.

PM Modi also releases a video on Twitter while cleaning the trash-

Even PM Modi also released the video on Twitter where he could be seen picking up plastic garbage from the beach and other kinds of waste from while doing his morning walk which got viral on social media. He was wearing a black kurta and dhoti, walking barefoot and picking up litter very nicely.

Modi on Twitter Said

On his Twitter profile, he mentioned, “Plogging at a beach in Mamallapuram this morning. It lasted for over 30 minutes. Also handed over my ‘collection’ to Jeyaraj, who is a part of the hotel staff? Let us ensure our public places are clean and tidy! Let us also ensure we remain fit and healthy.”

Seeing his Post on Twitter, fisherman K. Vinod who belongs to the Ocean awareness group, responded, “When the Prime Minister can do it, why can’t ordinary people too.

One of the Mamallapuram residents appraises Modi’s Act

Appraising the act, Mamallapuram resident, Aine Edwards had also posted several photographs where she says how clean the town and beach looks after the summit. “It just shows that the town has the potential to be clean. The humans, who cleaned it up so beautifully, did a good job. But can they keep it that way?” she asked.

Actor Prakash Raj criticized his exercise

Some of them also criticized this act of Modi, Actor Prakash Raj on Twitter said,

Other people said that the beach was already clean since it’s a tourist place. Modi is just trying to raise his name that’s it. For example Kancheepuram District Collector, P. Ponniah said the plastic must have washed up onto the beach. “Since the beach is visited by tourists, it is usually kept clean. We had also cleaned up the beach before and during the summit,” he said. Here, he means to criticize his exercise.

As PM Modi has arranged an informal summit with Chinese President, Xi Jinping, he also discussed with him lots of other areas of concern and issues that are affecting our environment and nature. They both met at Mamallapuram and held the second round of talks at Taj Fishermen’s Cove in Kovalam.

This year while giving a speech on the occasion of Independence Day, PM Modi had announced a campaign to make the country free by not using any kind of plastic. Now, we need to wait and watch how many of us will follow what he said to keep our country clean.

Many people are telling that he is pretending to clean the beach. For all those haters, Team GudStory wants to give a simple msg which is the same in the following tweet..

Malappuram is World's Fastest-growing Urban Area

Kerala is one such place which is always on the top of every traveller’s bucket list. Reasons for which are many and we all know why. This is because of its serene climate, breathtaking beaches and lots more. Here, we are giving you some interesting news about Kerala. According to the latest rankings by the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) have revealed that Malappuram in Kerala is the fastest-growing urban area in the world. Other two cities from Kerala have got the 4th and 10th positions respectively amongst the top 10 fastest growing regions in the world.

It is interesting to point out that, no other Indian city has made it to the top 10 list.

Which are the other cities?

Other cities in the list are Can Tho in Vietnam, Suqian, Suzhou and Putian (China) Abuja, (Nigeria) Sharjah (UAE), and Muscat (Oman). The study was based on the data from the United Nation’s Population Division.

Let’s look into the data

Kerala's Malappuram

According to the data, Malappuram has recorded a 44.1% rise in population between 2015-2020, while Can Tho in Vietnam ranks second on the list which saw its population increase by 36.7%. Suqian in China, which ranks on the number, third, recorded a 36.6 % growth in population and Kozhikode recorded a 34.5% rise in population. Kollam has registered its growth at 31.1 % in terms of the population during the same period.

People were shocked after knowing the low population rate

Many of them were surprised to know about the lowest population rate, while others have pointed out that the state has also witnessed rapid urbanisation over the past few years.

Another reason for Urbanization.

People from cities like Malappuram and Kozhikode also have a sizable presence in foreign countries, especially in the Middle East. Another reason that has triggered rapid urbanisation is due to NRI remittance or internal migration due to the shifting of migrant workers from all over the country to Kerala. The state has seen a paradigm shift in its labour population. From the construction sector to factories and farm labour is now dominated by migrant workers from across the country.

Why so many migrants are shifting to Kerala?

Better living conditions, shortage of local workforce and good wages are some of the reasons that have triggered a wave of migrant workers to the state.

A 2013 study by the state’s labour department had found that one in four adult males between the age of 20 and 64 in Kerala is likely to be an inter-state migrant. An estimated 2.5 million people from outside the state call Kerala as their ‘home’.

The Female-led Finnish Government Has Announced Fathers Will Have Access To The Same Amount Of Paid Leave As Mothers

Finland's Government Has Equalized Parental Leave

Finland is the happiest country to live right now. Not because they have a beautiful landscape and serene climate, it’s because the country is being headed by the world’s youngest female Prime Minister, Sanna Marin. Seems very idealistic? Well, it is real and who would not want to live there. I must say that Finland’s PM is doing everything in its power to eliminate the gender biases in the country to make their citizen’s family life easier. The Finland government has just announced to offer equally paid parental leave. Awesome right? Both the parents would be getting a paid leave allowance of 164 days or roughly 6.6 months.

Good news for the single parent too

No, no this is not enough. We have something more for you. Even pregnant women are also entitled to one month of pregnancy paid leave and a single parent can avail the total allowance of both parents. Parents can also keep 69 days of that leave for later use.

When will this new law come into effect?

The new law will hopefully come into effect in 2021 as the policy is still being formulated. With the introduction of this law, it will make the life of the families easier and we also hope for the same to get something like this.

To this, Finland’s minister of social affairs and health Aino-Kaisa Pekonen said, “this change in policies was an “investment in the future of families and the wellbeing of families.”

She also said that this change would have huge impacts on the relationship parents share with their children early on in life. However, Pekonen also admitted that this alone is not enough to solve the everyday struggles families with young children face and that a family-friendly workplace is also needed.

What is the biggest takeaway of this law?

One of the biggest takeaways of this new law is that it places the responsibility of raising the child on the shoulders of both the parents equally. So, it will not be a burden on only one parent anymore which is the best part.

Speaking at the World Economic Forum meeting in Davos last month, Finland PM Sanna Marin said that, companies and states should do more to ensure that women were being treated fairly. She also focusses on gender equality which doesn’t happen by itself. She is the best PM a country can have.

What do we expect from our country India?

If we talk about our country, of course, there is a generous provision for maternity leave. But paternity leave is still something we need to think about. Here, in India, to be fathers get only two weeks of paid leave which is not going to work. I think that they should also be treated equally when it comes to leaves. As their presence is also very important.

So, what are your thoughts about Finland?

Prevent Gym Injuries by Following These Tips

Avatar

Started gymming again

Gym injuries are something which you must have experienced if you are a fitness enthusiast and it is common hence it is advisable to be cautious rather than injury yourself in the process hence, here are a few tips to prevent workout injuries.

  1. Warm-Up and Cool Down:

Warming up is essential before you start your workout as it increases your heart rate and makes you ready for the workout. You also need to cool down after the workout as it helps in bringing back the heart rate to a normal level. You can cooldown by just walking at a low speed for 5-10 minutes.

  1. Eat, Sleep and Hydrate:

Along with working out, you need to follow a balanced diet to increase your strength and immunity. Drinking enough water is also essential for all the bodily functions to run smoothly so that your body recovers from any injury. Sleeping and resting are the most important as your body needs rest to heal any damaged cells and sore muscles.

  1. Build a Strong Base:

Instead of doing complicated exercises, start from a basic workout routine as your knowledge of the basics should be strong before you proceed further to do complicated workout routines. Spend at least a few months analyzing basic postures before moving ahead to advanced sessions.

  1. Listen to Your Body:

You should always listen to your body as there are days when you will feel low on energy. If you force yourself to do intense workout when your body says otherwise, you may incur a serious injury. It does not matter if you do a light workout a few days hence understand how you feel before you go for your workout session.

  1. Wear the Right Workout Gears:

Many injuries are caused due to wearing wrong workout clothes and gears. Avoid wearing loose clothes as they may get caught in the equipment. Use workout gloves while weight-lifting to support your wrist and knee caps when you do heavy lower body workout.

  1. Undergo Proper Training:

It is essential to undergo training before you can do the workout on your own as the right posture is essential. According to experts from www.msinsight.dk, the majority of workout injury is caused due to ignorance to train the right way which may lead to shoulder, knee, neck or back injuries. Hence, hire a personal trainer to learn the correct workout postures so you do not injure yourself.

  1. Stretch:

We cannot emphasize the importance of stretching. You will know how essential it is to stretch when you forget to do it one day as your muscles will feel sore and painful. Hence remember to stretch after warm-up, in between workout and after your weight training session.

  1. Do Not Lose Concentration:

You should never lose focus while working out as any distractions can cause accidents and you will end up harming yourself hence concentrate on your sets rather than looking around at what others are doing.

If you injure yourself during a workout, then it will take several days or weeks to heal based on the intensity of the injury, causing a break in your workout routine hence take your sessions slow to prevent such injuries rather than becoming too enthusiastic and drop out of exercise for a few weeks completely owing to any injury.
