its been nearly 5 months since i made this blog. and i have hardly had 10 comments on my articles, which shows how badly my blog is doing! but i refuse to give up! i keep sending the links to the udl goup hopin outta hope somebody wud read! anyway the beauty of silence lies in the fact tht one can interpret it, the way he wants i'm just hopin more and more wud show up.
but from my past encounters in lyf i have learned that silence isnt always good!it is bloodier than any sinful intentions blurted out in the open! to the ppl i dedicate this article:-it would have been very different and possibly better had u said something to me rather than form a group and take law in ur hands!the very deeds u did make me less wrong than i originally was. if have had any disliking to any person[apart from nandakumar sir,] i have managed to say ryt on the face.most of the tym it has had awfully bad effect on me. but my nights have been saved from thinking of how to get back!
i had really wanted to write a good chunk of my school life in the blog, but from what i have learned, i was in a fantasy world!smiles werent what it seemed! i am awfully broken, and i have decided to stop the articles regarding my pals@ school!here infront of the world wide web i ask apologies to everyone i've hurt!i dont intend to do it again!not that i had had an intention to hurt u back thn!

making a difference! infromation courtesy:-

everyone wants to help the needy in some way or the other.
but how can u? u dont evn have a time for a drink,money hardly enough to keep ur wife grumpy luk away!
well the young kochi is showin how!
MAD - make a difference is an Organization of young people working amongst orphans and other underprivileged kids to provide them with quality education so that one day it shall empower them to stand on their own feet and when the times comes fly away. We try not to grill into their heads the tedious school syllabus but instead prepare them face life better by improving their communication skills, computer skills and their overall personality.
The Vision:

“To Bridge the inequality in society through education”
The Need:

* Children studying in orphanages are intelligent, but why do they never make it big academically? The YMCA poor boys home, Kakkanad has seen only one graduate in the last five years. Most of the others end up in menial jobs.
* We want to bring about a situation where all children decide their careers based on their aspirations and potential rather than on their financial backgrounds.
* The education provided to them does not prepare them in vital areas like communication skills, English, basic computer awareness, personality development etc.
* These children are unaware of what their future academic options are, do not get adequate support, lack the educational background and hence lose out in the race for their dreams.
* So those who aspire to become doctors and engineers end up as carpenters or plumbers.

How the Youth can help

* Youth are the future. Being a part of it, we realized how “we always wanted to help but never knew how.”
* The youth of today are articulate, knowledgeable about their academic environment and are a great source of unbounded idealism to Make A Difference.
* They can share their knowledge, help develop their communication skills, raise their morale and increase awareness of future options and opportunities.
* The children need somebody to talk to them, counsel them and guide them into the future. Youth have the time and can relate to them.

So what’s stopping them?

* Two out of three teen respondents in a survey indicated that they want to help, but nobody asked.
* They do not have a network that provides access to those who need them most.
* Lack of training to prepare them to undertake such a task.
* Need for an organizational backing to provide infrastructural and other support.

How can we “Make A Difference”
Children and Orphanages

* Imparting quality education, which is practically oriented and enormously helpful for their future without any cost to them.
* Guidance on future career opportunities, scholarship availability, and other academically oriented information through our volunteers and website.
* Reminding the children that they are not alone in their struggle and that people do care.
* Providing them with examples of achievers within them through the “Achievers of the Month” section in our website.
* Getting them in touch with people of their age group from privileged sections of society, to whom they can relate to and learn from.
* Helping meritorious students to get funding for future education.
* Improving their infrastructural facilities in their organizations by starting libraries and generating awareness about their needs with specialized agencies like “Round Table of India.”


* Make you more conscious of their social responsibility and sensitize you to the needs of the underprivileged in their surroundings.
* Our panel of experts, who are top of the line and will coach you in the art of teaching and help them with syllabus.
* Provide a conduit you otherwise would not have had, to channelize your efforts.
* A chance to change things for the better and “Make A Difference.”
* Teaching someone is actually teaching yourselves. There is no better way to enhance your knowledge.
* We hope to get you recognition for your work by affiliating to institutions of repute like Young Indians (Youth wing of CII), Round Table of India etc., provide you with certificates and publicize your efforts.
* We will enrich you with the interactions you have with sections of society you would never have met otherwise.
* Provide you an opportunity to manage schools and take up posts in the organization, developing your managerial talents and leadership skills.

Group meetings to interact with your volunteers to share your experiences

with sincere wishes

Rummaging the Web

Online research is emerging as a good opportunity. If you've used search engines to look for specific information, you'd know how tiresome it is to sift through the junk before you arrive at what you want.

Services like Google Answers[ ] save surfers the hassle of searching themselves. Surfers post queries on computing, shopping, entertainment or food, and Google's team of online researchers get cracking on the information requested. You can set the price for your answer on the basis of the work involved. Three-fourths of the price goes to the researchers. Responses are rated by the people who request the information, while registered users offer comments.

Companies like ClicknWork[ ] and AskDownUnder[ ] hire online researchers to offer Web search and information services to their clients.

"There's a growing awareness that the Web is not that easy to navigate and most business executives have other things to do with their time," says Roger Sharpe of ClicknWork, whose team of Web researchers, editors and information specialists located worldwide provide research and writing services to such businesses.

He adds: "We have requirements for different skills like specialist knowledge, business writing etc. But most of our work is based on sourcing quality answers to business questions."

AskDownUnder offers cheaper Web search services for companies in developed countries as they have online researchers from developing counties like India where the cost of living is lower.

Dr Steven Tsitas, managing director, who posted ads for researchers at, says that over 1,600 people in India have signed up.

"There's no fee to join. Anyone can sign up - irrespective of age, sex, nationality or country of residence," says Tsitas. "You have to be intelligent, excellent at researching information online and have an ability to think laterally and find results from imperfect information. Since many things people want are not on the Internet, you have to think of what else would be relevant and draw from life experience and general knowledge to close in on the answer."

Unlike AskDownUnder, ClicknWork requires researchers to take an online test to qualify as part of the team. There's a pre-test and a full test depending on your profile - whether you're an expert Web guide, searcher or business writer. Google also runs researchers though an application process testing their research skills and the quality of their answers.

ClicknWork has tutorials to help you research effectively, and there are sites with tips on where to find online databases and tools to help you locate hard-to-find information.

ClicknWork pays about $10 an hour for searchers and $15-50 for expert Web guides, while business writers or editors make about $15-30 for a 90-minute online session. AskDownUnder allows researchers to quote a price per query. Once a client accepts the quote, the researcher is alerted and sets to work.

Says Tsitas: "It's difficult to say exactly how much a person could make, since everyone competes against each other. Researchers are free to quote whatever price they want and the clients decide if they want to accept that quote instead of others from researchers with perhaps higher or lower overall ratings."

He adds that a person in India working full time as a researcher could expect to make a good Indian (not a US) wage: "If a researcher in India tried to quote US prices they would presumably be undercut by others from India. However, good researchers receive high ratings by clients and should be able to command more money for their services."

Expert advice

Most of us have an interest or area of specialisation. If you know a lot on a certain subject, you could make money by giving advice on that topic. Fee-based sites provide advice in particular areas and have teams of paid online experts around the world who are proficient in their fields.[ ] has a directory of online experts in categories like religion, relationships and travel. You can register and give advice by email, chat or phone. Rates can be set by the minute or the hour.

If you're a computer or Internet expert,,[ ] a 24X7 help site allows you to answer such queries via chat. Commissions can also be earned by bringing business or clients to the site.

Other services that invite people with some professional expertise are and All these sites screen their experts and you're required to send in a CV or summary of the experience you have in any area.

Though LiveAdvice[ ] and Keen [ ] have an online directory of advisors, the phone is their main medium of dispensing advice.

Not all affiliate marketing, referral programmes, pay-to-read-email and pay-to-surf programmes are scams. Some will actually send cheques to different countries. Check out reviews of such sites at European Telework Online[ ] and FreeMoneyGuide[] . But while you may make some money, you'll generally end up spending much more on bandwidth and telephone calls.

Also, setting up a site and hosting banners on it isn't going to make you rich overnight. It only helps if your site has a decent amount of traffic. You can then sign up for referral programmes that you'll find on sites like Commission Junction.[ ]

If you're looking for other opportunities, Sharpe recommends trying established e-marketplaces like and

Scam guard!

There are 'work online' scams, and then there are scams that warn you of other scams while claiming to be your one-way ticket to riches. You need to be on your guard to identify the real work opportunities.

Watch out for big promises of easy money. There's no such thing as a free lunch, offline or online. "Look for a track record," says Sharpe, "Never pay for anything and make it clear that the site will not expect payment from you later." Legitimate employers will not ask you for money.
