Ganpati Bappa- The Aquarian God

This is a new series that I have decided to start on my blog. Well, it deals with the zodiac signs of the Gods. Hinduism allows me to verify and analyze if our gods belong to a particular zodiac sign or not. Therefore, as a learned person and astrologer I would take advantage of this flexibility. Just as everything first starts from lord Ganesha, this series will start from him as well. Today, Ganesh festival is in full swing. Actually, it is bappa visarjan day for us. However, I had to pen down this experience. Some-days ago I read in a Newspaper that you must not ask bappa about marriage or love partner. Bappa is passive in these cases. As per my own experience, I tend to agree with the news article.  I asked bappa about the boy I like and he said through tarot readings that this guy is not good for me.

I probed to know why and the answer that I got was that he is very active (yes!!) and will tend towards infidelity. I do agree with Bappa in these matters. On the other hand, he gave clear indications to my sister that her choice was approved. They were shockingly real indications to shatter our skeptical minds. So, why is that for the first time my sister's choice got approved and mine got rejected?

A few years ago my elder cousin sister faced a bitter break-off. This happened a year after she left the family Ganesh festival to wash utensils and floors at her to-be husband's house who was hosting the same.  She said that it happened because our family bappa felt angry with her. I would put it this way that he didn't like her prioritizing the shallow so-called love affair over a family function. Bappa likes to be a part of a family, larger the better and he enjoys his stay as member of the family.

However, he certainly wants family members to observe veganism and celibacy during his stay. So, this certainly makes him an "Aquarius".  Hindus celebrate Ganpati bappa's birthday in early February. This is when the sun is in Aquarius. The people of this zodiac sign are known as atheists, scientific in nature.

They have knack of gathering knowledge and have never prioritize love-making above other tasks. An aquarius man is never hungry or starved for physical cravings. In fact, at a certain point and in most cases they find it repulsive and shallow. Aquarians look down at those who are crazy behind such pleasures and those who give in to adultery.  If you look at the Lord Ganesha, you will find him loaded with all these qualities. He is a god who is known for having scientific brain, command over languages and varied subjects. He manages vast regiments of the army with wit and intelligence. He is sharp and innovative.

The most important thing is that he appreciates anyone who seeks knowledge and wisdom. But he nags when you ask to make love and marriage to be your ultimate goal.

Now, coming to the question why did he select my sister's crush and not mine?

Aquarians are safe or gentlemen in the real sense. They can restrain themselves and you can go anywhere safely with an Aquarius. Among the few men whom Pisces women trust, this zodiac sign tops the pyramid.  I am a Pisces but my love is a Scorpio. The eight sign of the zodiac, the sign of pleasures and eroticism. Although the Scorpio love-making is emotional it leans towards excess. There is no limit to a smitten Scorpio and this is something Aquarians detest. They prefer the more romantic but restrained Libras who know where to draw a line.

Libras will behave in the utmost gentle and sophisticated manner when the occasion demands.  Their behavior will never cross the line of control. Imagine a household Ganpati festival where a Scorpio man will crave for lovemaking 24/7; especially if he is paired with a Pisces or a Taurus.  This certainly won't go well with the Aquarius God who finds it to be shallow to divulge in such pleasures all the time. He would prefer a Libra who would concentrate on the festival and piousness of the occasion.  My sister's crush is a Libra and so he got approved.

But today bappa approved my love as well maybe as a farewell gift. His, Pisces father, Lord Shiva usually comes in my dreams and presses me to approve him (my scorp). Well, it is all about astrology you know!!

The significance of copywriting

Copywriting is rapidly gaining significance as the world moves towards online media as the most reliable source of information. Earlier, people preferred electronic or print media for information.  Therefore, selling products using them was the only way to reach maximum audience. As the world is turning faster, online media offers a better source of information than the prior two.

Along with writing a good copy, the electronic and print media requires other elements for making the product saleable. However, that is not the case with the online media. Writing a perfect sales copy can do the job for any online seller. Online copywriting is thus, emerging as a good career for those who have flair in writing. Small business owners who are setting up online stores need to do proper marketing of their products. Therefore, for this purpose they need to have a good and engaging copy to make their website and products attractive to the readers.

Many times online sellers forget to understand the significance of copywriting. They usually concentrate on writing only good product descriptions or for that matter just precise product descriptions. However, they forget that the internet is the widest source of information. The consumers of today are smarter and information hungry; if you supply less information and ask for direct purchase then the buyer might just ignore your website and move to another one. People tend to stay longer at those online shops that offer more information.

Therefore, having a copy that contains both product and service description along with the necessary information can generate more sales. A product or service description cannot be called as a copy. A copy is something that can connect the seller to the buyer with a bond of “trust”. It is essential to know that a reader will get converted into a buyer only if he or she is able to trust the seller.  Unless he or she is convinced, a reader will not get converted into a buyer.

In order to convert your readers into buyers, you must have good copy. A good copy must contain precise information, engaging content and informal writing style.

Importance of precise information:

Your copy must describe the product or service in a precise manner. If you are selling a digital camcorder then the essential features such as the LCD screen size, Image and Video quality, shooting frames per second, video modes and format should be specified. A visitor is able to choose whether to purchase or not to purchase that product based on the description. If you offer additional features at a lower price then this can convert the reader into a buyer. You should highlight the best features of your product or service in an easy to comprehend manner for generating sales. Internet readers have too many options and very less time, therefore, providing precise information is your key to sales.



Importance of Engaging content:

You may write appropriate or apt product/service description. However, you may not write an engaging copy. When you are describing a product or service for creating sales, just providing the readers with the details is not enough. Your content shouldn’t sound monotonous or boring. It must instill more enthusiasm in the reader about the product or service. Anything that appears to be a direct “sales copy” can be considered as spam. If this happens with you, then you lose both customers and authenticity. This is one reason why most successful netpreneurs spend months for building online reputation. Online reputation cannot be built overnight and anyone who promises such quick success has no experience of copywriting or is just another internet conman. Until unless you are a popular brand in the regular or offline market and have used print or electronic media for sales promotions previously; huge online success on an immediate basis can just be a dream.

In case, you are starting your business using the internet then it is crucial that you follow effective marketing strategy and comprehend the importance of copywriting. 

Your content must generate curiosity and interest about your product or service. I t must establish an immediate connection with the reader so that he/she is converted into a recurring visitor and eventually into a buyer. There should be a touch of creativity and humor even to your regular copy. This makes a copy enticing even to a layman. Don’t make use of too much technical terms and highly polished English as a regular reader will find it difficult to comprehend. A clean and easy to read informative copy is more than likely to generate huge sales.

The importance of informative writing style:

Writing style is also an important factor of copywriting. The way you present your copy can tremendously influence your sales. Sometimes there is too much of sales content in a copy. This should be avoided if you intend to actually make “sales”.  Your copy should concentrate on the best qualifications of your products or services. While doing so, it should be kept in mind that you are not being too “pushy”. A good sales copy must be friendly and informative rather than being pushy and formal.  A friendly, informal style of writing is easily acceptable to the readers. Such a copy that is quickly comprehensible, informative and fun to read and will generate sales faster.

When the above tips are kept in mind, you are likely to get higher search engine rankings and quality traffic.

An effective copy is very crucial for generating higher sales. Therefore, it should not be ignored. Copywriting has become a vital part of having a flourishing online business. Ignoring the principles of copywriting can leave you with a stagnated business, no traffic or no quality traffic and hopelessness.

A lot of times people make mistake of ignoring search engine friendly words. They also don’t use an informal and creative writing style while publishing their sales copy. Copywriting is an art and it should be mastered to get the best results. However, mastering it is not difficult at all. Anyone who understands the three principles of copywriting can easily use this art for reaping high benefits. Copywriting is very important since, there is cut throat competition on the web. When it comes to electronic or print media, the significance of copywriting cannot be ignored. There too, the copy of an advertisement needs to be “perfect” to generate sales and to establish a brand name. Nevertheless, copywriting is far too significant when it comes to selling your products or services online.

How to Choose the Right Chess Set

There are no shortages of chess sets for you to choose from out there. As a result BraRoe Chess would like to provide you this service to help make you experience the best that it can be.

When you look to purchase a chess set, you two different options in front of you:
Choose a combination of pieces and a board that has been pre-selected for you
Individually choose the chess pieces and the chess board for you own chess set

With both options, there are a couple of things that you want to keep in mind. The first is price. Choose a chess set that is built to last. You are going to have many memories attached to your set, and one of the best things that you can do is to keep the set around for generation to enjoy. Always buy the highest quality set that you can afford.

Second is quality. The quality is something that you will be able to both see and feel. The pieces should have a good solid feel to them every time you pick one up. Next, pay attention to the crown of the King, the finer the details, then the higher the quality. Lastly, the knight is the most noticeable piece that you will have on your board. Study it curves and details. True quality sets will have a finely, hand-carved knight.

Now keeping this in mind, choosing an existing Chess Set is much simpler. You take the time to choose between the Classic Staunton Chess Set or a theme that you like (i.e. Civil War, Mythology, etc.); purchase the set, and wait for it to arrive.

The second option, takes a little more thought.

Matching wood types:

Wood Chess Sets:
Ebony pieces match well with basic Black and White boards or with Ebony/Madrona  Board
Rosewood pieces look great with boards that are also rosewood or those made from Mahogany
Sheesham woods fit best with Walnut boards as well as with Bubinga or Hazelnut Boards

Metal Chess Sets: 
Metal Sets match with wood boards, but also go well with brass boards as well as leatherette boards

Matching Size
The size of the chess board square is determined from the diameter of the chess pieces’ King. Take the diameter and multiply it by 1.33 (4/3). If need be, you can go a little bigger, but you really don’t want to go smaller. Example a 1.25 diameter base x 1.33 is 1.66 inch board. Boards with 1.75-inch boards would be perfect.

After that, all you need is to order the chess pieces and board and start creating you own chess memories.
