By: Johann Cancer awareness day is recognised every year on November 7 in honor of Marie Curie, who was born on the day. Her story will long be remembered, not only because of the countless breakthroughs on the scientific front but also for the role she played in breaking the stereotype of what a woman can do. Her contribution goes much further than what can be put in words, but in an attempt to pay my tributes, I will try my hardest.

Wasn’t there a time (or multiple times if you’re really awesome) when you wanted to craft your own conspiracy theory and wished that it were true? Or was there a time when you came across one and dearly wished that it was the reality instead? Well, same pinch! Because we have theories that we wished were true. Why not read and find out which ones?
The fourth Sunday of July every year which is the 25th of July this year is celebrated as Parent’s Day. The most important thing about Parent’s Day is that all of us identify the contributions of our parents, how much they work for us, be gratuitous towards them, express our love for them and not take them for granted.
