In Humanities we worked with Gap minder app. Gap minder is a app which as lots of data of different countries. In Gap minder I found out the relationship of life expectancy and GDP per capita. I took India and Japan, Since India a LEDC and Japan is HEDC.

1.Life expectancy of Japan and India

Screen Shot 2015-11-11 at 7.14.39 PM

Life expectancy of Japan and India in 2012

As you can see the picture above there was different Life expectancy and GDP per capita in different Years. This is Because when there is GDP per capita the Life Expectancy grows (Example- When there is more wealth and health people start to live more). This means when people starts to leave more than they wanted, Even there needs increases which is the GDP per capita. It could happen even like the GDP per capita increases the more life expectancy this is because when there more needs people start to live more.

Population of Japan and India in 2012

The pictures shows the population of Japan and India in 1955,2000 and 2012. There not same as each other in every Year. They increases and decreases because Japan is a MEDC and India is a LEDC. The population of Japan in 2012 is 127.6 Million and it has more GDP than India because if there is less people there is more GDP(more people more work). And the population of India is 1.237 billion its quiet a lot than Japan but less GDP. The reasons for population decreasing are natural calamities or wars.


Full Forms-

MEDC- More Economically Developed Country.

LEDC- Less Economically Developed Country.

GDP- Gross Domestic Product.

Getting out of our Comfort Zone

What makes me feel somewhat nervous or uncomfortable?Stress make me nervous and uncomfortable. How can I respond to such challenges? I will try again and again if I couldn’t do that. How might I feel when I succeed? How will I know? I feel that I have done something new by this I come to know that I have succeed. How resilient am I? Don’t give up and say I can do that next time. How do I know this? If I be strong enough I can do it. Why should I bother pushing out of my comfort zone? Because it is too dangerous and safe for us to be out of the comfort zone and learn new things.
