Do you go to movies? If yes, then what is the latest film you watched? Did you buy a packed bottle from there? How much did you pay for one bottle? Let me guess; forty or fifty rupees. Have you ever wondered why do you have to pay so much money for packed water? If not, lets think about it.
Its been almost an year since I have published a post. I felt little demotivated as I used play Dota 2 in free time instead of writing. Realizing that it does not bring happiness or satisfaction as writing, I came back. Yey...I have not thought much about what to write today. I will publish write up about what I heard, seen or experienced in Ahmedabad. This post came out of my frustration hence kindly mind the negativity around it.

As easy as this question sounds, these four words cannot be so easily answered. This construct has been one of the most confusing ones in history of psychology with no ‘set’ universal definition. The etymology of the term has varied across psychologists and time. Some view it as a reaction in the analyst, implying a reaction parallel to the patient’s transference. Theoretically speaking a wide array of definitions can be found in the literature. The totalistic definition views this phenomenon as including virtually all of the counselor's emotional reactions to client. Whereas, the classical definition says it is the counselor's transference to the client’s transference. The reality however lies somewhere in between these two.
Ashutosh Varshney in his paper ‘why democracy survives’ says that India is theoretically counter-intuitive because it defies the odds against which democracy is supposed to stand. In his idea poverty, widespread illiteracy, and a deeply hierarchical social structure are inhospitable conditions for functioning of democracy.
There is a new methodology used officially by the Government of India to measure poverty. In what ways does the existing way of measuring poverty differ from the recommendations of the Suresh Tendulkar Committee.
Transference, a false connection or colloquially speaking blast from the past is a very important concept in psychoanalysis. Freud first made the use of the term (1895) when he was reporting on his attempts to elicit verbal association from his patients. Unlike initially, now its analysis is seen as an important tool in progress of therapy, no matter its negative or positive transference. Freud further explained the idea with transference neurosis (1914) and said that patient in analysis is ‘obliged’ to repeat the repressed materials a contemporary experience, instead physicians would like to see it as something belonging to past.

“There is such a thing as food and such a thing as poison. But the damage done by those who pass off poison as food is far less than that done by those who generation after generation convince people that food is poison” – Paul Goodman
Gestalt psychology, according to Fritz Perls (1893-1970) its main originator, is an existential approach that not just deals with symptoms but with a total existence of the client.
The German noun ‘gestalt’ means - a whole where the relationship between the parts cannot change without destroying the particular gestalt. The major thrust of their work was to show that humans do not perceive things in isolation but organize them through their perceptual process into meaningful wholes. One of their major concepts is the dynamic interplay between figure and ground, which give meaning to every phenomenon. The main focus of this therapy is always on the person, the present and the awareness of the present.
“There are three deaths. The first is when the body ceases to function. The second is when the body is consigned to grave. The third is that moment, sometime in the future, when your name is spoken for the last time” – David Eagleman
Existential Psychology sees experiences as unique in the context it happens and what individual interprets of them.Existentialism is an empirical science that employs the method of phenomenological existence (I.e. disclosure of the occurrences of behavior in the immediate experience). Martin Heidegger’s fundamental concept of Da-Sein (being - in – the – world) means that humans have their existence by being in the world and the world has its existence because it has beings to disclose it. Its foundations are influenced by Satre’s and Nietze’s belief about the godless world. He emphasized human’s inescapable need, in their struggle against despair and non-being.
When someone starts working, there done. Usually there is no personal growth from that point on. However there are many fellowships that provides personal development for professionals. This post list some of these top professional fellowships.
I had throat infection and the doctor prescribed Meftal 250mg and Cefadrox 500mg. I went to the first medical shop where only Meftal was available and they gave me 6 tablets for 11.59rs. It was a Neethi medical shop and they gave me a bill. There is a high need for bringing transparency in the medical sector. Then for the second tablet, I had to go to another medical shop and accidently bought the same Meftal Tablet. For the same amount of tablets, they asked me for 14rs and no bill was provided. The difference is almost 2rs for 6 tablets of Meftal. Now think about tablets that costs more thousands, how much will be the medical shops earning per day.
Psychoanalysis originated during the late 19th century with the birth of Dr.Sigmund Freud in Freiberg. Victorian age was giving way to a more scientific and revolutionary Europe at the time of Great War, both of which significantly shaped psychoanalysis. For whosoever knows history a bit, it is not hard to imagine why psychoanalysis developed to be so deterministic and dynamic in nature. To be able to create radical views and survive in that era, it was mandatory to be inflexible where nothing could be left for chance.
“When I look at the world I am pessimistic, but when I look at people I am optimistic” – Carl Rogers
Many years ago, even before i knew the term psychology, i read a quote in a book called 'The monk who sold his Ferrari. The author, Robin S Sharma wrote - "Until You first empty your cup, how can any more get in?” The conversation was happening between a Monk who was a former lawyer with a lawyer friend. At that time, i could not understand the statement very well and left it as something interesting. Now after 7 years, a Post-graduation in Psychology, and a lot if lessons in life, i can finally begin to make sense of the depthness of the cup.
Human life appeared on earth some 3 million or more years ago. The earliest treatment of mental disorders was that practiced by Stone Age cave dwellers some half a million years ago. Early writings attributed abnormal behavior to a demon or god who had taken possession of a person. From that phase we have come a long way to a scientific and more experimentally oriented view of abnormality.
