As of now, this app has crossed 50 million-plus downloads.

What is Roposo App?

"Roposo app" was founded in the year 2014 by IIT Delhi ex-students Mayank Bhangadia, Kaushal Shubhan, and Avinash Saxena.
Roposo is basically the video-sharing social media platform actually an Indian app or you can call it the "Desi app" that giving a tough competition to Chinese app Tiktok.

This app is available in ten languages like Marathi, Kannada, Hindi, English, Tamil, Gujarati, Bengali, and many others. 

Just like Roposo, another app that came under discussion is Say Namaste. Since the lockdown in the country, many company's employees are working from home, even many schools are conducting classes online and are using an app like zoom for video conferencing. Indian Cybersecurity has warned about this app has a bug that raises the privacy concern and shares the information to the third party.

Secret Interview Hacks That Will Surely Get You The Job

When we search for advice for a personal interview, we get the best tips from the internet. Many of them help in preparing ourselves for the interview. But those tips tell more on how to respond or how you should arrange your file but apart from all this what also matters is how you present yourself in front of the interviewer panel. After all, how you look, what you wear makes an impact on your overall interview.
Today's article will give you in-depth knowledge on how exactly you should represent yourself at the interview. So, let's go ahead ;)


1. Everyone knows that Formal dressing is a must.


Workplace


Though there are no such rules made or whether you should wear a particular dress is never mentioned by any company in the interview advertisement. But formal dressings make you look professional and it raises self-confidence. Shirts with light color gives a good impression during interviews. So, if you don't have shirts in light green, white and light blue, do arrange and wear them in your next interview.


2. Choose leather shoes in dark, freshly polished colors.


Grooming

If you wish, you can go ahead and wear brown or black shoes but many professionals wear shoes that match their trousers and wear dress socks of mid-calf length.


3. Proper grooming for an interview makes you attractive irrespective of your looks


Office Work

Shaving is important. Keep your face clean and you should not look like you've not slept for the entire night before the interview hence you make sure you get quality sleep at night. Neat and clean hairstyle enhances the professional look and even help to create positiveness during the interview. Avoid using too much of hair setting gel.


4. Also, the one thing you want to avoid is getting over-dressed


Discussion

Remove wearing stuff that can affect your formal look. For example- if you are wearing a lot of metal rings that have coloring stones on it. They actually take away the professionalism of your overall look. Do consider these points for the interview, all these matters.


5. If you are seriously looking ahead to get selected for the job that you're appearing for the interview, then you should do one thing that makes a difference is to avoid wearing strong fragrance Perfume.


Grooming

Some companies have a no scent policy at work that you may be unaware of.
Many people are highly allergic & sensitive towards the fragrances and cologne. You may be wearing deodorant or perfume in order to smell good but it might create a threat to your selection for the job. Hence, it would be better to avoid using any deodorant or fragrance for an interview. 


6. Studying for a job interview, makes you feel confident that you are prepared to answer any technical question asked related to the job profile.


Boss

It helps you to get a picture of the more information about the company and what your role will be.
But by chance if you come across the situation where you're not able to answer or you don't know the answer of the question asked by the interviewer, rather than mumbling and giving the wrong answer and thereby affecting the chances of you getting selected, it would be better you be honest and inform them about you don't know the answer. Just because you are asked about 10 questions, it is not compulsory that you have to answer all 10 out of 10 questions. Even if you are answering seven out of ten questions correctly and try to be honest with the interviewer in the entire process, that also helps to create a positive impression.  


7. In-country like India, where Hindi is a national language and every state has its own language,  many people communicate in their local language, in such situation communication in English is done only in offices and in colleges.

Many freshers who are just passed out, have less exposure to the professional world tend to get nervous on thinking about speaking in English during an interview. And eventually, this might also affect their confidence level and thereby chances of getting selected.

But is communicating in English during an interview is compulsory?

An interview is a process that helps you to get a chance to get selected for a particular job by making a positive influence on the interviewer.  And this happens when you clearly able to express your views to the questions which are asked by the interviewer. 
English is used as a good way to influence and impress people. Speaking fluently can help you to make a good impression on the interviewer. But if you're not able to communicate confidently and you feel more comfortable to converse in Hindi or your local language, with the interviewer's permission you can do so. There are many companies that allow candidates to converse in the language in which they are comfortable. 


8. When a candidate enters the interview hall, the interviewer tries to make him feel comfortable and as he gets comfortable, the interviewer starts with the interview process.


Interview Discussion

Recruiters follow this procedure in order to make candidates comfortable, confident, and ready to answer.
It is important to understand the question well and think before answering the question. It helps you to align the answer and express it in your words. This helps to increase the confidence level higher. Also, it makes the interviewer involve himself too in the process.


9. Once you enter the office premises, there will be office staff with whom you might need to coordinate


Workplace

For example- the front desk staff that might direct you to wait for your turn or the office assistant who will take you to the cabin, talk to them respectfully. Express your good manners. Creating a good impression on them might help you to get selected.  Because, how you behave with the office personnel also matters to the interviewer.


10. When you enter the office, have a smile on your face


Workplace

This helps to bring positivity into the room. Portray yourself as a very confident person. Even if you're not really that confident and getting nervous, avoid doing these three things - 
  • No folding your arms
  • No fiddling with your fingers, and 
  • No slouching
These 3 are the signs that can give the opposite person an idea that you're nervous. 
Laugh, it's not a hard rule that you have to be serious all the time during interviews. Once you stop holding yourself and make mind and body free, it is that time you get comfortable and be able to answer all the questions in an easy manner.

Though every interview is unique, the experience you get by attending them helps you to prepare for the next interview. 
There are ample of opportunities that you'll receive in your career path, the tips that are shared above can help you to prepare and appear more confident.

Send HTML Forms on Blogger Asynchronously Using AJAX

Have you ever faced challenges when designing a form on a blogger to capture user input and send it to the server for processing?

AJAX Code



Its a fairly common requirement for any blogger to use a form to send data. But most of the time when the form is submitted it opens a page where it sends the data. Today, I will show how to send the form using AJAX without opening a new document page. 

So what is AJAX? 

AJAX is an acronym for Asynchronous JavaScript and XML. It allows us to send the data asynchronously to the server in the background and making it possible to update the page, without reloading. When the form is submitted an event listener attached to the form element passes the control to a JavaScript function which then proceeds to send data asynchronously using the XMLHttpRequest Object

First, we will design a simple form.



Copy and paste above into the HTML section of the page and it should look like below



Then comes the JavaScript to send the form to the server through AJAX.
Let us design a function to send the data.


The main drawback of the AJAX method, the page where the data is sent should be in the same domain. If it is not on the same domain then it will be blocked by the browsers. You can still do a workaround on this issue which I will tell you later in the article.

AJAX is not supported by all the browsers and there is a different way of implementing AJAX in different browsers. For example, Opera 8.0+, Firefox, Safari, and Chrome will support the new XMLHttpRequest(); but browser like Internet Explorer requires you to use the ActiveX Object for this purpose.

You can replace this code above const xmlhttp = new XMLHttpRequest(); with more browser-specific JavaScript code below


This is the example of the Front end code. You would also require a corresponding code on the server. Depending on the type of server, this can be done in PHP or Active Server Pages or any language available on the server. If it is a third-party API, then there will documentation guiding you with implementing the communication between the AJAX code and the Server.

Great User Experience

When AJAX requests are sent to a domain that is not the same as where the page is stored, the requests are blocked by the browser as this causes CORS Issue. Read the below article to correct the CORS issue.


Knowing AJAX can help you make simpler pages that update using the response from the server. It is useful when communicating with various APIs on the internet.

Ghee


Desi ghee is a type of clarified butter that is used not only in dishes but also in Ayurveda and herbal medicines. Ayurveda considers ghee as the "first and the most central of all foods." Ghee is made from two ways, one, from Dairy milk and second, from vegetable oil.  Ghee has butter 's strong essence; the last product of a long, slow, careful clarification cycle that eliminates all the moisture, milk solids, and impurities.
Nutritional research has found out that consuming one spoon of ghee daily benefits in making immunity strong, improves eyesight, constipation, and strengthens bone. Many old age women serve ghee in the diet to pregnant women to provide nourishment and nutrients to the baby and the mother.
Ayurveda's advice has inspired many people to turn to Desi ghee and has seen enormous health benefits. Ghee contains predominantly saturated fatty acids and is rich in vitamins A, E, and K2. This is also rich in Conjugated Linoleic Acid (CLA) and Butyrate with good health benefits. Consuming it in moderation can be beneficial.
Ghee has MUFA (monounsaturated fatty acids), which is stronger than PUFA (polyunsaturated fatty acid) found in oils such as corn, sunflower, oils from cotton, etc. Ghee is formed from a short chain of fatty acids that can be efficiently digested. This nature helps break the fat, too. Therefore Desi ghee could be a more sensible choice than these oils.

Regain Your Power Back And Overcome Defeat

If anyone tells you that he has never failed, then realize that man lies to you because mistakes and failures are part of life. There is no human on earth that got succeeded in the first attempt or without making mistake.
When we lose, we assume that we cannot do anything on it and everything is over at that moment.

Never give up

But the main concern is, thinking this way will really solve your problem?

Every defeat goes by giving us a lesson that even if we lose we should try to win. Just sitting silently and weeping over the past and thinking about the moment that went against you won't help you. 
Every person gets a second chance to re-correct his mistake and win. There is nothing impossible in life. Therefore gathering the courage, assessing the situation correctly, and taking a step further will help you. Success won't be far from you.

There are 7 steps that can help you to regain your power back and overcome defeat.


1. Don't surrender yourself to the defeat


Whatever you do, either you will win or you'll see the defeat. That's the rule of nature. But important is to not give up so easily. A lot of people give up because that's what they find easy to do when they fail. Rather try to not give up. 
It may be difficult to hold on to your confidence and get back. You should not stop yourself so easily. It is after you refuse to give up, you see how capable you are. Getting inspired from others doing impossible things is the greatest way to inspire yourself to stay strong. Quitting is not an option, so no matter how many times you lose, it's not going to be an option.


2. Get back yourself again


This is an important step in your failure. It is this step that will decide your future. Many people avoid facing the same situation again after getting failed because they get reminded of their failure and hence they try to avoid the situation. When you'll try to get back, it will gradually change your mindset for better. It will make your brain get aware of the current situation you are going through and make your brain prepared to face the situation again and make sure that this time you win!!!
To regain at the same position may look difficult but with struggle, nothing is difficult. After all, it is going through this phase of your life that will make you grow for better. 


3. Get motivated from failure


A prominent scholar has said that "When Life Brings You Down, There Is Always Something Out Surrounding You That Can Motivate You". When you find difficulty in getting your foot ahead for one more time, think about the reason behind why you have started earlier. Our mindset plays a major role in how and where our life leading to. When you feel demotivated, think about the defeat that you have faced. When you get thoughts related to it in your mind, it automatically tries to make your mind understand that this defeat cannot prove your incompetency and visualize success.
As you get such thoughts in your mind, it makes your mind ready to give a try for one more time. 
By keeping your mind open and welcome to receive thoughts from whatever happens in your life, sometimes it can motivate you, and it can be from defeat or failure too. Make your mind understand that, no experience is useless but is a great lesson. 


4. Stay confident


Confident


Confidence is said as the key to success. No matter how tough the situation is, confidence plays an important role in our lives and matters a lot. Lack of confidence can make you doubt yourself and your actions and thereby miss an opportunity that can lead you to success. It is because of the low confidence that many people have to stay away from getting successful.
When you get confident, you start believing in your own skills, goals, and ability to succeed. No matter how many times you fail, if you are confident, you can change your destiny and get successful.
You cannot get confidence overnight, but practicing it daily in life and making a decision about your life independently, without letting other opinions about you to influence it. It is when you take responsibility for your life, you gain confidence and you get capable of taking difficult decisions of your life.



5. Keep reminding yourself about the dream you have


The greatest desire we all have is to reach the goal that we want to achieve something that we will proud of. Often we lose the track that can lead us to success. Many times it happens because we forget the goal that we have set to achieve. Many among us get demotivated with the failure that we face and we let the failure to rule our life. Probably this makes us get off track from achieving our goal and that's when we lose the grip of our life from our hand and as we start noticing this, we feel like our life is not in our control.
To be on the right track every day it is important to remind yourself every day the purpose of your life. The goal you want to achieve. In order to not lose your concentration from your goal, keep your activities oriented towards your goal. These small steps will help you to get you closer to your goal and will keep the flame of your dream alive. Make your mind understand that, no experience is useless but is a great lesson. 


6. Review your strategies


Strategy


It is through experiments, one gets the right path that leads to success. There is no one who has got success in the first attempt. Many popular personalities have faced failure in their initial days. 
We all have a habit of seeing things from one perspective. When your attempt doesn't succeed, change the perspective. Try other possible ways. 
There is nothing in life that is difficult. Everything in life has a unique way to go through. The need is to discover that path which can lead you to success. When you face failure, think about it. Review the strategies you have used, make the necessary changes, and try one more time.  It will definitely make you overcome defeat.


7.Work smart along with hard work


Smart Work


There are many who argue which is better, smart, or hard work. I am of opinion that both are important and it is in collaboration with both you can overcome failure.
Smart work alone cannot help you to regain your power back. With good strategies, you'll have to make sure you give your 100% effort and it is impossible without doing hard work.

When you are ready with your plan and strategies, the next step comes into action. Indeed hard work and smart work is the most important step that will lead you to success.


The difference between being defeated and feeling defeated is your attitude. How you see things matters a lot. Instead of getting hung up on what went wrong, try to focus your attention on what you can do next to overcome defeat.
Try considering the mentioned steps that will help you to conquer failure and regain your power back.
