5 reasons why you should use DuckDuckGo search engine over others

DuckDuckGo search engine is the most secure and safe engine which respects your privacy and does not save your - personal data, search history, your IP address and display annoying advertisements of recently searched products.

HomePage of DuckDuckGo

It is shocking to know that most of the search engines we use save all our searches with a unique ID for our IP address. They save cookies in our hard disk with this ID so that whenever you search, it directs to the cookie folder, collects all the data that is stored about your search history, personal information and hundreds of other parameters about you the search engine displays a unique search result for you with unique advertisements just for you.

So here are the 5 main reasons why you should consider shifting to DuckDuckGo search engine. 4th is my favorite

1.     Privacy: 

DuckDuckGo respects your privacy and does not stores your search history, preferences, your frequently visited webpages. So, your search results are unbiased and 100% correct. Most search engines stores huge amount of data about you stores it in a form of cookie and use it to haunt you with personalized advertisements, personalized searches and most fearsome fact is what extent can those multi-billion companies go with so much of our personal information at their hand.

One major disadvantage of other search engines are they show us the result we want and not the result we needed. 

2.     Quick Search: You would love it

DuckDuckGo provides a quick way of searching though some famous websites like amazon, Wikipedia, redit, Instagram, Facebook directly from its homepage just by searching with an ‘!’ (it is called a !Bang search)

!a shoe – will redirect to amazon website search for shoes
!w google – will redirect to Wikipedia page for google.

3.     Zero advertisement 

DuckDuckGo does not show annoying advertisements on top of our searches or anywhere in the page. But if you want DuckDuckGo grow do enable advertisements in General settings. 

4.     Appearance and Ascetics: It is beautiful

We use search engines a minimum of one hundred times a day. This gives us all right to ask for a good-looking search engine. DuckDuckGo exactly scores on it with new themes and complete customization of text color, font size, placement of website link and many more tweaks.
I personally liked this option very much. This was the prime reason I shifted to DuckDuckGo. Black theme and it suits my dark themed Ubuntu / Windows

5.     Narrow your search results by region:

You can now find results of other regions of the globe. Usually when we search we get a personalized result as per region and as per IP address. But now you can get result of your choice.
For example: if you search news with region USA you will CNN breaking news but if you change region to India you will get NDTV breaking news on top. Another example if you want to prepare an Italian food to surprise your spouse, searching in region as Italy might get you better results.

The most important fact about DuckDuckGo is that you always get the best, unbiased result whenever you search the web. Also, get all the features you had on your previous search engines and hence it never feels alien to you.

Still confused? Just click here and see it yourself. 
DuckDuckGo Android and iOS apps are also available in their respective app store.

The Unprecedented move of Narendra Modi : 500 and 1000 Rupee notes cease to legal tender

To root out black money and fake currency.

A welcome move says citizen. Dreadful news for Black Money holders.

Narendra Modi

PM Narendra Modi announced in a surprise address to the nation that from Mid-night of Tuesday 500 and 1000 rupee notes cease to legal tender and are just worthless piece of paper. This news caused a nationwide surprise with lots of supporters and as well as opposes.

The present 500 and 1000 rupee notes though can be exchanged with new 500 and 2000 rupee notes in banks in a two days’ ti­­me (that is from Thursday 10-11-2016) and till December 31st.  But the old notes can be used in Hospital, Railway station and air ports till November 31st which is a welcome move for emergency purpose.

New 500 and 2000 Rupee Currency


Why introduce new currency all of a sudden?

This is a common question by all citizen of India and around the world. Why announce it in such a short notice and why introducing new currency. But if you go deep into this scenario, a lot of those who own black money, hide their money in currency notes of 500 and 1000 in pile of sack, under the bed, underground and behind the walls. A lot of political parties use these hidden black money to bribe the public during election and vote for them and also to set up gigantic and luxurious stages for their rally. Now with this new act being enforced in just a 3 to 4 hour time, the crores and crores of black money in currency notes are “just a worthless piece of paper”. 

Black Money

Narendra Modi announced it at 8:15 pm, check mate all those who hid their money in currency form. Now they can’t even exchange with new currency because definitely they need to give a valid proof where that money came from. This is unprecedented out of the box thinking. Salute Narenda Modi ji.

Is it a well-planned move?

Definitely. The government has already designed the currency notes, printed it and ready for transport to all the banks and ATMs around the country. This is the fruit of months of planning and implementation and clearly depicts the efficiency of the present government rule.

Also rumors are spreading that the 2000-rupee note is embedded with NGC technology-A Nano GPS technology that require no power supply but could reflect the signals sent from satellite transmitting coordinates of where is currency is. If this is true, literally no one can even smuggle a sizable amount of cash without being detected by our constantly monitoring satellite.

Final Verdict:

The entire India should salute the present ruling Government for such a marvelous move to curb black money in India. This is a great moment in Indian history. This is the day 08-11-2016, India took a great leap towards eliminating black money and a huge step corruption free India. The dream of Anna Hazare is over the horizons friends. 



Jai Hind.
