Creativity is the bringing into being of something which did not exist before, either as a product, a process or a thought. In fact, we all are creative every day because we are constantly changing the ideas which we hold about the world about us. Creativity does not have to be about developing something new to the world; it is more to do with developing something new to over selves.

Creative Thinking

  • Reading and writing can help you in scattering the horizons of your thoughts.
  • Change the way someone else looks at something.
  • Invent something which has never existed before.
  • Another way of humanizing your creative thinking is asking questions in various situations to yourself and tackle with them instead of adopting other ideas.
  • Invent a new process for doing Something

Communication Skills

  • Try to read some English newspaper, English story book and other books and listen English news and program.
  • Presentation is a matter of your self confidence, you feel easy when you are confident about your staff.
  • Try to record when you are speaking in English and listen it later and realize your mistake and try to correct them.
  • Don’t be shy or scared when you are speaking English in front of anyone. Always remember if you only try to speak in front of new people then only you will learn.
  • Come in front of mirror and speak about anything fluently in English about story, first time there may be mistake in your language but it will improve if you continue.

Writing Stories

  • Carry around a little notebook so that you can write down ideas, great words, characters, observations and inspirations, whether you’re a fiction writer or nonfiction writer.
  • Understand what really motivates people by listening to them more and imitating their dialog and speech patterns in your writing.
  • Write whenever you can, whether it’s a short story, a poem, an analysis of a play, or a column you send into the newspaper. Practice makes perfect.

Dear Sir,
I am persuing my B.Tech. in Electrical Enggineering from Punjab Technical University. I am in the final year and I want to apply for UES for Technical Branch. But the problem is that my university has not declared the result for the 6th semester and the last date for applying is 27 July. I cannot apply if I do not have my correct marks in all the semesters. This is my last chance to apply for UES. Please reply to my problem as soon as possible so that I could take the necessary action.
I will be grateful to you.
