The Symbol of the Lifechanyuan Era

First, let us understand these eight characteristics of the era in which we are living:

It is an era of nationalities, political parties, religions, races, countries, and other interest groups fighting both overtly and covertly

Where do you like to read and write?

I am posting this blog as I have been facing a problem of my reading and writing habit.

I saw an eye-specialist (Oculist) recently and he suggested that I do not read from the screen but I can not stop it yet. So, I am interested to  know what about you and would like to ask you…
