Hauz Khas is one of the most famous watering hole in India’s capital. Mehrunnisha Shokat Ali of Social Hauz Khas, may be confused with other visitors of this particular neighbourhood in Delhi.

But one look at her kohl-rimmed eyes, as she remains standing straight, with folded hands, on the edge of the dance floor in a completely black outfit, watching couples weave and spin to the music, gives a hint to her real occupation. She is the Social’s popular female bouncer.

Mehrunnisha has been a bouncer for almost 10 years, and throughout the previous three years, has done 10-hour shifts at Social in the night, which works as a restaurant accommodating seating space for 220 individuals by day, yet transforms into a club at night.

Mehrunnisha by now is a master in separating bar brawls, searching female clients, and confiscating illicit drugs.

The 30-year-old Mehrunnisha is also popular for having worked as a piece of the security detail for Bollywood actresses, for example, Priyanka Chopra, the star of the U.S. TV serial “Quantico”, in addition to Preity Zinta and Vidya Balan.

Mehrunnisha also has much experience in crushing generalizations of the society about her.

Experiencing childhood in a large Muslim family in the town of Saharanpur, 200 km from Delhi, she longed to join the armed force or becoming a cop, however her profoundly conservative father restricted her from doing so. It was her mom’s request which enabled her to continue her education past elementary school.

In any case, when her dad’s securities exchange misfortunes constrained the family to move to the capital, Mehrunnisha, who was in college, turned into the provider for a family comprising of her parents, two sisters, and her senior sister’s three kids, other than herself.

Her younger sister, who is 27 years old, Tarannum, likewise fills in as a bouncer at a bar near her own work place. Together, they gather around 30,000 rupees a month. They take huge pride in their work and spend more than an hour at the gym every day to maintain their fitness.

  2. Secondly, focus on working smartly. You must try to cover the important topics first and study coherently. Instead of mugging up each and every aspect, you must try to split the study material into small portions and focus on memorizing them. Well! Those small portions could be divided into sub-topics and remembered efficiently.
  3. Thirdly, stay away from distractions. Reduce your activity at the social media accounts of yours and keep your phone away from your sight. Yes, ‘out of sight, out of mind’ phenomenon is tremendously helpful and facilitate you focus on your studies.

In case you have a slow writing speed, set a timer of 5 minutes and try completing a selected amount of portion in 5 minutes. This helps in writing answers fast during examinations. Try preparing all your answers in lucrative style with a candid language and plenty of keywords.

Origin of Zero

Zero is not just a numeral but an epitome of emptiness. Well! Shunya or Zero represents the philosophy of emptiness or ‘Shunyata’. India is renowned worldwide for its discovery of zero as a number. Notably, zero is significantly used in calculus and other mathematical operations. It will not be wrong to say that modern mathematics could have been non-existent in absence of zero. However, zero was discovered in India hundreds of years ago. Therefore, it is interesting to acknowledge the fact that our ancient cultural mathematics was highly advanced.

Well! Despite of the fact that zero has its roots from the ancient Indian civilization; historians from all over the world had a quest to know about the first use of zero as a ‘placeholder’ or as a number. Many historians were of the view that in the early 9th century; Indians developed the concept of zero. However, Babylonians and Mayans were also considered to have used zero as a ‘placeholder’ or number represented by a dot citing emptiness, a void.

However, according to a recent research of the group of mathematicians led by Marcus du Sautoy, Professor of Mathematics at the University of Oxford; zero originated in 3rd century that is, 500 years back than previously thought. Before the recent findings, zero was supposed to be first used in 9th century and the evidence was found on a wall of temple at Gwalior in Madhya Pradesh.

According to the recent results which are obtained from the process of Carbon Dating; the zero as a ‘placeholder’ was first depicted in the ancient Indian manuscript in the 3rd century. Notably, the Oxford’s Bodleian Library had an Indian manuscript from the 3rd century from the year 1902 called ‘Bakhshali’ manuscript. The ancient Indian Bakhshali manuscript has its roots from India and it belongs to the 3rd century. Interestingly, Bakhshali manuscript was found to be buried in a village which is now in Pakistan. Interestingly, this old manuscript has the illustration of zero in form of a dot representing null.

Well! The concept of zero is taken for granted worldwide. However, zero is relatively an essential for the basics of mathematics. The most wonderful concept derived from the concept of zero is that zero not only represents the void but it also connects the void to infinity.
