Gujral, who headed the United Front government for 11 months from April 1997 to March 1998, was India's external affairs minister during the 1991 Gulf War and later became the Prime Minister. Gujral was India's 12th Prime Minister.

Earlier on 19th November,  he was admitted to the hospital due to lung infection. The former Prime Minister, had been unwell for sometime. He was on dialysis for over a year and suffered a serious chest infection some days ago. He will be cremated in nearby Delhi tomorrow. Gujral, who migrated from Pakistan after partition, rose to become the Prime Minister with a big slice of luck after he came up through the ranks - starting as Vice President in NDMC in the '50s to later become a Union Minister and then India's Ambassador to the USSR. Gujral, an intellectual who propounded the 'Gujral Doctrine' of five principles for maintaining good neighbourly relations, left the Congress to join the Janata Dal in the late-1980s.

Classification / Odd Man Out Series Problems with Explnations - Alphabets

Friends, Classification / Odd Man out Series is one of the important topic in Reasoning Section. In these type of questions they just give you 5 options and you should find the odd man out from the given set. I mean, if you are given 5 options like Parrot, Crow, vulture, Sparrow and Penguin and ask you to find the Odd man out, then your answer should be Penguin (because all the remaining birds can fly)... Ofcourse, some of you may say "Why not Vulture is the answer? Because its the only bird which eats dead bodies (actually one of my friends asked this question while writing this article). Point.... "May be other birds too will eat dead insects if they starved" I answered.  "Then penguins too can fly for short distances" she replied. Point Again!!! So what will be the correct answer? After all you are not going to argue with the examiner who evaluates your answer sheet (or Optical Marks Reader ofcourse). So, here you should keep in mind that OVER THINKING should be avoided while answering these type of questions. Think twice before marking your answer. Now lets go to the details. To made the concepts clear, we've divided this topic into 3 sections.

Joaquim Barbosa is Brazil's First Black Supreme Court Justice

Leave a Comment
Joaquim Barbosa has been sworn-in as Brazil's Supreme Court's first non-white Precident at a packed ceremony in the capital Brazilia. He became the only black ever to serve on the court when he joined it in 2003, even though more than half of the country's 192 million people identify themselves as having African descent. Barbosa, recently became a household figure in Brazil after overseeing one of the country's biggest corruption trials involving key members of the former President Lula Da Silva's government.

In his inauguration speech Justice Barbosa acknowledged the flaws in the Brazilian legal system. Mr Barbosa is famous for his tough stand against political corruption. 

Water Image / Horizontal Plane in Reasoning

As we've already discussed, Water Image and Mirror Image are two important concepts of Reasoning. These concepts help you solving Non Verbal Reasoning concepts easily (ofcourse, some times verbal reasoning concepts too). In our last post, we've discussed about Mirror Image / Vertical Plane. You can read that post Here. In this post we shall discuss about the Water Image / Horizontal Plane. Simply we can say that the Water Image is nothing but the Reflection in Water. Technically the definition is "In water image / horizontal plane, the LOWER and UPPER parts interchange positions and the LEFT and RIGHT parts remain constant". Have a look at this Cat to make concept clear... Lol ;)

Mirror Image / Vertical Plane in Reasoning

Mirror Image and Water Image are two different concepts which helps you to solve Reasoning Problems  (especially in Non Verbal Reasoning). In this post we shall discuss about Mirror Image. This Mirror Image is also called as Vertical Plane. Have you ever observed your mirror image? Your right becomes Left and left becomes right.. Right? :P Ok, now there is a technical definition for Mirror Images in Reasoning. Of course, it too almost similar to what we known, but with lil extension. Please keep this definition in your mind. In the mirror image, the RIGHT part of the object appears at the LEFT side and vice - versa. But the UPPER and LOWER parts remain constant. Have a look at this Cat to make the concept clear... Lol ;)

Place Values of Alphabets - Reasoning Shortcuts

Friends, today we are going to learn about the basic rule for Analytical Reasoning. The Place Values of English Alphabets. These will help you in answering the questions related to Coding and Decoding and Analogy... Yea, I know all of you know alphabets and me too don't want to teach them to you now. But what about the place values? Of course, even a 5th grader will tell the answer by counting if you ask him "What is the place value of S ?". But the problem is, you should react in fractions of a second.  Because you cant spend more than 30 seconds for these type of questions. That means, you should learn by heart. Below we've given you the alphabets with place values, just read them for 10 to 15 times so that the values of these alphabets will register permanently in your mind.
