The first Russian train.

As I mentioned before my town is an industrial town.

There is the metallurgy industry here since 1600 or so.

At that time it was a very hard job. Almost no machines, all works were made by humans.

Because the metallurgy need an iron, and coal, water, and other things and all of…

It's almost the same as go to the restaurant, but before your dinner, you work on the kitchen with a chef cooking for yourself.

There are several restrictions for it.

Is calling by people's name bad?

Hello, Dear friends,

I'm writing here to clear a doubt that has been eating my mind so far.

When I first participated in one of our LEWWWP live class, I was hesitated to call the teacher by his/her name. Because, In India, calling people by their name is bad (Especially for the elder people).

If the person is from my relation, I can call them by their relationship. But If I have to call some stranger, I would call him "brother" or "Sir". If it was a woman, then…

Communicating clearly!

Hi Everyone,

Hope you'll are doing good 

It is important to be precise when using the English language. If we are not precise our words can be ambiguous or read in ways that we did not intend.

In order to communicate clearly we need to understand the rules of language. Imagine playing a football match or a game of chess without rules. Just like the rules of a game there are rules to consider when using the English…

Question 4#

I saw two of our team members today, arguing with each other loudly and making everyone busy to death with their boring noises..

Do you think fighting/quarreling at public workplaces is a right decision to make even if you are up in arms or you find it so shameful?!

What Is The Real Meaning Of Life? We Mean Us!

Is this a naive question?  Or LIFE means to make money from morning to midnight and spend it on other goings-on that we have decided the most important in LIFE. From culture to culture, there could be some sort of differences in this regard, but the main framework must be something common to the total humanity. “When we talk about LIFE or think of LIFE”, is it meant only ourselves (humans)? How about other forms of…

The Last Battle

June sat by her twin brother’s bedside, looking at him with bemused expression, as a weak and exhausted  Jean lay with his eyes closed, recuperating after a bout of malarial fever.

He casually opened his eyes and, when their eyes met, he asked crossly, “Why are you looking at me with such pleasure? Are you celebrating my malaria?”

“No, my silly,” said June. “I was thinking about the effects of disobeying the parents.”

“What do you mean? You eat as much as I do,” retorted…

Cedar

 

Cedar is the very special tree in my place.

There are many reasons for that: 

- cedar's wood is very good for carpenters.

It's soft, easy to work with, and never splits during the work.

That's why if you are a cabinetmaker or something like this it will be priceless for you.

- It is big sized, 30-40 meters tall and more than 1 meter diameter.

It's good if you need…
