Top Locations on Instagram in 2013
As 2013 draws to a close, it’s once again time to look back on another amazing year on Instagram. It’s inspiring to see moments shared from all around the world, whether it’s a photo from your hometown or a video from your vacation. We took a look at the location trends to find the most-Instagrammed places of 2013.
Like last year, a popular location in Thailand tops the list. The Siam Paragon (สยามพารากอน)—a massive shopping complex, movie theater and aquarium in Bangkok—was our top spot, edging out 2012’s most-Instagrammed place, Bangkok’s International Airport. Suvarnabhumi Airport dropped to number nine, while the Eiffel Tower dropped off the top-ten list altogether. (See more from last year’s list here.)
New to the most-popular list in 2013: Walt Disney World, High Line and Central Park in New York City and the Bellagio Fountains in Las Vegas.

The Awkwardness Unleashed !
Well well well….
We are almost to the end of 2013 A.D and the charm of having a new year, new things have already covered our mind, provided the countdown has begun for almost everyone to forget the year that has gone bad for some people, good for some, to keep up with the motion that eventually we have to leave after 3 weeks from now on ! The madness which surrounds the crowd is just awesome to watch, people changing the pages of calendar, some have started counting the days, hours, minutes, seconds…. for me I’m counting the shakes too. There has be a lot of thinking yet to be done in order to put everything to the exact plot we think our way and then it will be the end of one more year, though its too early to say… So lets wait for the never ending party to begin…. Control your emotions, stay calm…. On your day, everything will be yours for sure !
There had been a lot of talks about the date 12/12/12. So much was expected to happen on that day. The luckiest people to have spent their whole life got to pass away, some were born with a dream to enquire that particular date after a century, and we who are luckier than them to get a chance to cross two different centuries, an irony which we feel to be quite proud of ! The ups and downs have always conquered on everyone’s fate and the time has come to leave all those behind and accept exactly the first of the steps…. It needs a strong heart to accept the truth and to go on dong well in the specific fields of mastery. The positions of clock have changed and so are they when we are having a different look w.r.t time, for each and everyday they had been to our service in order make us learn to put things into a certain bank without even calculating the interest of return. The brilliance of Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Philosophy, Sociology, Ecology, Physiology, Microbiology, Biotechnology, Social Sciences, History, Economics and so on have failed to give us the exact information where we are heading to except for those mere predictions like Big Bang which also didn’t seem to work in the favour of the great scientists.
When will we learn to live for ourselves ? The self service has a lot of matter yet to be extracted, for the people who stay in dark and almost have no idea what a new “year” can give to them is the ultimate sign of the jealousy which has developed among everyone that no one has even bothered to care for them, to make them walk way we have learnt to. The shear mysteries of belief and faith are the only thing a normal human being could carry and rest are all achievements which have to be thrown away someday. The essence of every success for me has only lied in the path of being a pure and perfect human being. The personification has been laid these days in such a way that the stars which don’t even twinkle are becoming a part of the pages and the one who are far away from the contemporary recommendation has to sit thinking whats wrong that went this year, may the new erases all those ! A brief idea of what should, what could, and what would has been limited to what should be, what could be and what would be. Aren’t we educated enough to be free from the imprisonment ? Or do we need to be defined as the stamped literates who fall in neither of the classes of society, because they belong to the middle classes. Well, you can’t dare to open your mouth in front of those upper sections and our laziness has made us to believe it to be waste to teach the lower sections.
Right ! Let us leave this discrimination and debating aside and concentrate on what is the present scenario of the world !
A paper was published once, (sorry I am very much poor in remembering things), and it promised to build up the African countries to their best possible way in terms of health, wealth and shelter. The Engineers who went there did nothing until they were asked anything to do. Time span of a project went passed and as usual they came back. A sharp light stormed a heavy darkness over the people there and they were left dumbstruck at what happened after. A violent sandstorm just washed away the total area of Sahara with the people living their were left with almost nothing and so were the engineers from different countries USA, U.A.E., India, Japan, Australia, Brazil and even from the continental South African Engineers failed to accomplish to the task they were send for. Had they been trying hard to build up strong concretes, the people could have been saved from the storm. Now its a point which has to be debated because that paper was not brought out under any issues and it was totally suppressed by the producers because of the political pressure or any other personal benefits !
Now, these would sound surprising as the point is Why am I saying all these ! The simplest answer which I have in my mind is that legacy which we fail to maintain when we have all the powers in hand to work for ourselves, stay for ourselves, look for ourselves and at last search for ourselves. The uncanny things which are still quite prevalent these days are the results of none other than our own fault. We are quite happy cheering for the end of a new beginning but when would our mind be able to understand the pain of a beginning which infact has got no end. The divergence has spread to so big radian, that a minimal amount of calculations are left uncalculated just because the forethinking requires a highly programmed calculator…. Goodness me ! The elements just flying off head and frying off to waste. Everyone wonders at the words I use to explain things rather than thinking it of a much simpler which everyone is quite capable of. But the capability has limited them to try for something new…. Even I have had people who start criticising of whatever they have got rather to work for something better which could bring them their success. Some even want to have a fresh beginning, even then they are trying to link everything up to their past which is weird in normal sense and just a shear ferociousness in terms of a formal language.
Let me have a look what the things that have happened good to me this year :-
- I have been able to hold on to my facebook profile which has successfully driven sometime of mine to devote to myself, may be the first stage I had to pass on being laughed at.
- I was able to a number of social networking sites which certainly have generated new ideas within me.
- I have learnt how to be a twitter, no matter what the situation is. I started with my sad story but got bored and turned to some tricky linkless points.
- I have learnt how to confuse people and to learn their reaction. The trade mark words they say when their understanding is being understood or when they don’t understand yours except understanding theirs.
- I have learnt how to stand up, give a big smiling sedatives, to show up the middle finger to the sky just to indicate you just missed a centimeter from being higher than me.
- I have learnt how to respect people by being annoyed and how to irritate whom you like very much. The moral is simple : If someone comes back to you its yours and if it doesn’t it was never yours.
- I have learnt how to step back from the wild manipulation. It does good, but for a limited period of time. The after time effect is so ferocious to handle that the hardest turn to regret things at last.
- I have learnt how to keep myself going. The development or rather the remnant of a childish character, believe it or not helps everyone. Atleast I’ll be busy in my work only.
- I have learnt how to express myself without actually saying the words. The secrets also have secrets which are needed to be diluted atleast to a minimal single stage.
- I have learnt how to be happy within myself, to throw away things straight away when I don’t like it, and not to give a mere damn to those who or which didn’t belong to me.
- I have learnt to be with my Blog, which has only understood what I actually feel. That is why after just reading my own header which i forget everyday some new series of words starts popping up and I just massage my brain to connect them properly though broken in links.
Now what do people need at the last ? This mere happiness which I have inside me has made me to write all these things, not knowing whether i’ll have that much of the patience to read it once again. But the lightness which I feel, gives me a signal of how I should do the next year, when the dates which still appear on my blog will appear somehow differently. The dates which have been put are on some special days which I have forgotten right after the moment I have put that post. The monopoly is important to be maintained until and unless I’m totally vacated from the dust. That pump needs to point out the direction to the way where I can expect to meet the original myself which I have lost in these due course of time. The rubbish things which have happened are the moments made only for me to pose for a blank smile, for I don’t have any reason to be sad too. Let me put all these together and the concepts of basic as well as technical sciences to make out what could have been the best, what would be the best and what should be the best. What is your resolution for the new year ? Are you freaking serious of what I told all these while ? Or do you possess a better understanding capacity than me ? Let us look forward to this new year….
Nobel Peace Prize 2013 Ceremony at Norway’s Oslo Rådhus
On Tuesday, December 10, the anniversary of Alfred Nobel’s death, Nobel Laureates will attend an award ceremony to receive prizes in Physics, Chemistry, Physiology or Medicine, Literature, and Peace. The ceremonies take place every year to hand out a Nobel medal and a diploma which documents the prize money. All of the award ceremonies except one take place in Stockholm, Sweden, at the Konserthuset and prize documents are signed by King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden.
The Peace Prize, the best known of the evening’s awards, is granted at the Oslo City Hall (Oslo Rådhus) in Norway in the presence of King Harald V of Norway. The Rådhus took 19 years to complete from 1931-1950 following the outbreak of World War II in 1940. Designed by Arnstein Arneberg and Magnus Poulsson, artists from all over Norway also contributed to decorate the halls. The ceremony takes place on the same day as crowds gather in South Africa to remember Nelson Mandela, who was awarded the Peace Prize 20 years ago today.
Earlier this year, the Norwegian Nobel Committee awarded the 2013 Peace Prize to the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons. This marked the second consecutive year that the prize went to an organization rather than an individual, after the European Union (EU) won the prize in 2012.
NELSON MANDELA, A REMEMBRANCE
“What will he say? What will Mandela say after 27 years in prison?”
That was the question on everyone’s mind as the multitudes gathered in the center of Cape Town on the day when the leader of the African National Congress walked to freedom, recalls…
