Wish all the people a happy Easter day. On this day, I wish that the Christians, Hindus and Muslims realize that God does not belong to just India, Israel and Saudi Arabia. Since all the people are same to the God he sent his messengers in form of Lord Krishna in India, Muhammad in Saudi and as Lord Jesus in Israel.
Believe in God but also that all religions are equal. Believe in your own religion but never criticize other religions.
ABOUT EASTER FESTIVAL
Jesus Christ died on a cross on a Friday almost two thousand years ago. Christians believe that on the following Sunday, Christ rose from the dead. The day Jesus died and was buried is known as Good Friday. The following Sunday is Easter.
Christians celebrate the resurrection of the Son of God each year between March 22nd and April 25th (the first Sunday after the vernal equinox).
Religious celebrations include family gatherings and special Easter church services.
Different Easter traditions across the world
Easter traditions differ around the world. Here are just a few of them.
Children in the United States and Canada say the Easter bunny or rabbit brings eggs at Easter. In Germany and England, they say the hare brings them. The hare looks like a rabbit, but it's larger, with longer ears and legs.
In Australia, rabbits are quite a nuisance as they are not native to the land. For this reason, there is an attempt being made to dub the Bilby as the the chief egg bringer of the land. For lack of a better description, the Bilby looks a bit like a cross between a mouse and a rabbit.
In Italy, Belgium and France, children say Easter eggs are brought by the church bells. There, church bells do not ring from Good Friday until Easter Sunday. Because of this, people say that the bells have flown off to Rome. As the bells fly back home for Easter, they drop colored eggs for boys and girls to find.
But there are more foods than eggs to enjoy on Easter!
People in Russia eat an Easter bread that is full of plump white raisins and tastes like cake. In some countries of Eastern Europe, people enjoy an Easter Cake called babka. It's shaped like a skirt -- babka means "little old woman". Easter cakes in Italy are shaped like a rabbit, which is a symbol of birth and new life and many other countries make cookies and cakes shaped like a lamb, a symbol of Jesus. Hot cross buns are another traditional Easter bread with icing in the shape of a cross.
From the religious point of view, this season is considered very significant. People prepare and sanitize themselves for the Holy Easter. The Holy Week, which is the last week of the Lent, opens with the celebration of Palm Sunday. This is called Palm Sunday because on this day Jesus Christ succeeded in entering Jerusalem, where people welcomed him by laying palms at his feet. This week consists of many important events that lead up to Easter. Holy Thursday is yet another important event, commemorating the Last Supper, where the Christ prophesized his end and his resurrection. It is followed by the Good Friday, which symbolizes the day of Crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Finally the holy week ends with Easter Sunday with the resurrection of Jesus Christ which signifies the return of happiness, mercy and compassion into the world.

The Successful CV
A successful CV is the product of careful thought and planning. The employer is looking for an applicant who has the right experience, skills, and personal qualities for the job. The person appointed is likely to be the one who not only possesses all these but also presents them in the most attractive way. The only way in which you can achieve this is by thinking very carefully about yourself and what you have done in the past and believe you could do in the future, given the right opportunity.
Begin by thinking about these three areas:
• personal qualities
There are various ways in which you can do this. What follows is only one possibility. Whichever approach you choose, however, make sure that you make detailed notes of your ideas – even if you think they may not be relevant. Also, keep all your lists and sheets of notes ‘open’; go back to them from time to time and make sure that you haven’t missed anything out. This preparation stage is essentially one of brainstorming. Selection and ordering come later.
Experience: Many people find it easier to start with this, because it is the most concrete. Begin by thinking of your life as divided into a number of stages. What these are depends on you – the divisions between the stages may be marked by changes of job, moves from one place to another, or by key events in your life – marrying, having children, buying a house, and so on. Your notes on your experience should certainly include:
• any professional training
• periods of employment – include part-time jobs and those which didn’t last very long, as well as ‘proper’ jobs
• other extended periods in which your life focused on a particular activity (for example, periods of foreign travel)
• any voluntary work you have done
Skills: Your notes on your experience should provide you with useful prompts when it comes to listing your skills. Look at each of the different stages of your life and ask yourself:
• Which skills did I use here that I already had?
• Which skills did I improve on or consolidate?
• What new skills did I learn?
Make sure that you include not only skills related to your trade or profession, but also personal skills, for example:
organizing events training staff
interviewing giving advice
chairing meetings making presentations
meeting the public
Don’t be too concerned at this stage about whether the skills you list are relevant. That can come later. For now write them all down.
When you have finished, look back through the list and consider whether each item is one separate skill, or, in fact, a bundle of skills that should be separated out. For example, you may have written ‘communicating’, when it may be preferable to list ‘simplifying technical subject matter and communicating it to non-specialist workers’.
Personal qualities: This is the area that many people find most difficult; they are unhappy talking about themselves and their qualities because they feel it is big-headed or ‘pushy’. They may also find it quite difficult to step back and look at themselves objectively. On the other hand, if you don’t tell a potential employer about your personal qualities, who will?
It is sometimes difficult to begin such a list, so here are some qualities to start you off. Write down any which you think apply to you, and then add others of your own. For each one you choose, make sure that you can think of incidents in your own life and work experience that bear them out.
accurate, independent, worker,
can work under pressure, loyal,
get on well with other people, sensitive,
good communicator, thorough,
good sense of humour, thoughtful,
good time-keeper, vigilant,
hardworking, work well with others,
You should by now have three sets of rough notes. ( It doesn’t matter how rough they are, provided they are as detailed as possible.) The next stage is to decide how you want to order your CV. This can be done in one of two ways:
Chronological: A chronological CV presents your education and work experience either in the order in which they happened, or in reverse order, with your most recent experience first. Since recent experience is probably of most interest to an employer, this latter method is now widely used. The advantages of a chronological CV are that it emphasizes the companies or organizations you have worked for (and the periods of time involved) and your continuity of employment. The disadvantage is that if your career has had ups and downs, especially if it includes periods of unemployment, these show up very clearly. The employer who is looking for a steady and reliable employee will probably favour this approach.

Functional: A functional CV is organized by skills and qualities. If, for example, your experience is in motor-parts, both as a representative and in head office, the functions you could use as headings might be:
• presenting the product range
• customer care
• information technology
Under each one you can provide further details of specific experience. The advantage of this approach is that you can focus on you strengths without having to spell out relative inexperience or periods of unemployment. The disadvantage is that it may not make clear important periods of employment with impressive employers. The employer who is looking for applicants with particular skills and capabilities will find the functional CV more helpful than the chronological.
