Unblock Torrents

The main ways of blocking torrents or P2P file sharing are:
1. Disable installation of torrent clients like Bit torrent and uTorrent on your system.
2. Block all the files downloading with the extension of .torrent.
3. Blocking the ports used by the torrent clients.

If you are facing the above challenges then you don't need to worry. It is quite easy to bypass these methods.
If installing torrent client is disabled by your administrator then don't worry, there is a website (web based torrent client) for you which does not require any torrent client and it can download your torrent file right within your browser. No need to install anything on the system.

Just start your browser, open this website and in save provided type the URL of the torrent file you wish to download and you will be able to download the torrent from within your browser itself.

When there are restrictions on installing applications on your system then for torrent client you have an alternative, that to use portable versions of BitTorrent client like uTorrent. The portable version can run directly from USB pendrive, you do not need to install anything on the local system.

Now you are able to bypass the first commonly seen restriction. Now you have the restriction that you can't download any file having .torrent extension. You have a website

This website changes the extension of the torrent file from .torrent to .txt, hence giving the impression to your local administrator that you are downloading a harmless text file. Once you have downloaded the .txt file, simply change the extension to .torrent and open it in a portable version of uTorrent and you will be able to start downloading the torrent file.

Israel and Iran: Tensed Relations

There was a time when Israel and Iran were friend but today they have extremely much animosity. The animosity has increased so much that now they want to destroy the existence of each other.
"Israel doesn't has any existence in middle east and will soon be erased", President of Iran Mahmoud Ahmadinejad continuously saying this. Apart from this Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu has said that his country will attack Iran when it become essential. These are the signs that everything is not going well in middle east. Even specialists are not refusing the possibilities of war between these countries. Indeed the existence of both the contries is very mysterious like their relationship.  Iran is the only country  having the dominance of Siya Muslims in middle east and Israel is the only country in the world where the Jews has their influence. Being cut off from regional and international diplomacy if both the nations want they could be natural allies. It was when in 1948 Israel came to existence. Till the end of 1970 decade's both the countries were very close to each other in case of politics, economy and security. Israel looks at Iran as his natural allies and Israel were the good buyer of the oil resources of Iran. Both the countries were keen to make good relations with western countries. But today both want to destroy each other.

AFSPA: Again in Disputes

Omar Abdullah
Chief Minister of Jammu and Kashmir said that provisions of Armed Forces Special Powers Act should be removed. The party of Abdullah demanded this previously as well but Central Government is not ready for it. Apart from Jammu and Kashmir, AFSPA had also been  in disputes in the seven states of northeast Manipur, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Mijoram, Assam and Tripura. Under this law security agencies has several special powers and local public always blame them for the wrong use of their powers. Security agencies has the permission to fire, doesn't matter if anyone or any innocent get killed. The can arrest anyone, search anyone without any arrest or search warrant. The territories where this provision is active, local peoples always blame agencies for slaughtering their human rights. They said that agencies bother us in the name of peace and order. This is the only reason peoples are demanding to remove it but the Central Government says that it is essential because of terrorist activities.

Some Decision Must be Taken
Protest Against AFSPA
The law says AFSPA has unlimited rights without any responsibilities. Whenever they want they can shoot a group of peoples, doesn't matter that the group is of innocents. They aren't responsible for the death of any innocent anyone cannot file a case against them. If this law is essential in Jammu and Kashmir then it is also very essential that some correction should be done in the provisions of this law. The agency must be responsible for the killing innocents and slaughtering their rights.

Started from Assam and Manipur
AFSPA started from Assam and Manipur, when in 1958 under Armed Forces Special Powers Ordinance security forces got some special powers in some disturbed areas of both the states. 11th September 1958, Armed Forces Special Powers Act got his existence and it applied in the seven states of northeast. In Jammu and Kashmir it started in 1990. Central Government applied this law because of terrorist activities and tattered situation of law.

Human-rights Violation
Killing Innocents
Organizations like Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and The South Asian Human Rights Documentation Centre countinuously blamed AFSPA for the wrong use of their rights.
They said that because of the freedom from all legal action the security forces just only bothers local peoples without any reason.
The states where this law is active, the cases of encounters, innocent killings etc. happens mostly.
Whereas Government says that this law is applied only for controlling national security and sovereignity.

Security forces or Executioner?
Primary provisions of AFSPA
1. In the name of peace and order they can shoot any person or group.

2. They can destroy anything where any types of weapons are hidden or where violent behavior are detected.

3. Without any solid evidence, on the basis of only doubt they can arrest anyone, search anywhere. They do not require any legal warrent for it.

4. No one can file any case against them. They are fully free to kill anyone and they will not responsible.

Jeevan Reddy Committee
BP Jeevan Reddy
After the death of Thangjam Manorama in 2004 in the custody of Security forces, Central Government constituted a 5 members committee in the Chairmanship of earlier Judge BP Jeevan Reddy.
The work of the committee is to  prepare a report about the essential changes in AFSPA.
In their report the committee gave their proposal to fully remove the AFSPA and apply Unlawful Activities Prevention Actin whole country in 1967 but the Government refuses this proposal.

United Nation and Supreme Court also Opposed 
United Nations Commission on Human Rights clearly said that this type of laws has no place in democracy and the Government of India should end this. They said that this law is the symbol of Barbarity and Colonialism. Supreme Court of India considered it as constitutional but questioned the legal immunity of security forces.

Marital Adjustment and coping strategies of spouse of alcohol dependence patients: A comparative study

Alcoholism is a complex disorder with physical, psychological and social aspects, having far reaching harmful effect on the family and society, as well as on the physical and mental health of the alcoholic himself. (Edwards and Grant, 1976)
Alcoholism is one of the major health and social problems all over the world. The study on Global burden of disease (Murray & Lopex 1999a, 1999b) identified alcohol use as one of the global risk factors, accounting for 15% of all deaths in the world and 35% of disability adjusted life years and 40% of the global burden of disease (as cited in Jurgen Rehm, et al., 2004).
The second national family survey (1998-1999)results indicate that among the Indian population, 17% of men and 2% of women aged 15 and above are consuming alcohol (Saibaba, 2001). Epidemiological studies conducted in India showed that 20-30% of our population is using alcohol at a harmful level (Ponnudurai R, Jay Kumar J, Raju B, Pattamuthu R., 1991). Alcoholism has been called the ‘family illness’ because of its impact on the entire family unit. For every case, there are multiple victim, Apart from the alcohol dependent person, the prime victim is his wife as there is no way she can escape as ignore the alcohol dependent husband. So in the day to day interaction of family life, she is confronted with alcoholic behavior. As the husband’s addiction gets worse day by day, she is compelled to face several unmanageable problems. Unable to cope with there problems, she constantly lives under severe tension and pressure, This result in her becoming desperate, anger, frustrated, nervous, afraid and guilty.
The relationship between marriage and alcohol abuse has been the topic of numerous studies in the west over the past three decades though these issues have not been extensively investigated in India. Ranjana Tiwani et al., (2010) studied the presumptive stressful life events among spouses of alcoholics on sample 100 spouses of alcoholics (experimental group) and 100 spouses of non alcoholic (control group). They found various problems faced by spouses of alcoholics that 73.0% wives of alcoholics were facing physical abuse while spouse of non alcoholics were facing only 17% different types of emotional problems present were 89% in alcoholics spouses while 32% present alcoholics spouse of non alcoholic. 91% alcoholics spouse were having insecurity problem related to self. Their children and husband while it was present 27% in non alcoholics. Spouse of alcoholics had 68.0% financial problem whereas only 35% spouse of non alcoholics were facing financial problem. The spouse of alcoholic suffer from elevated rates of depression, anxiety and somatic complains, report low levels of relationship satisfaction (Halford et al., 1999) and often are subjected to verbal and physical abuse (Leonard & jacob, 1988; Van-Hasselt, Morrison & Bellack, 1985; Leonard & Serchak, 1993).
Adjustment to an alcohol problem of husband may result in an increased in the wive’s emotional and physical illness (Bloom, 1985) and altered familial function and experience considerable psychological distress. (Kogan & Jackson 1965: Orford et al., 2001).
Sangeeta, Arya Tanwar & K. Ranga Swamy (2010) studied the effects of alcohol dependents on the dimensions of marital satisfaction, family environment and Quality of life on sample of 30 wives under the influence of their partner’s alcohol dependence. They found that excessive drinking and alcohol dependence can exert severe negative effect on the life partners in terms of marital satisfaction, family environment and quality of life perceived by them.
Alcohol problems are related to increased rates of marital violence, poor communication, and feelings of marital distress that lead to a greater risk of divorce (Leonard & Mudar, 2003). Marital satisfaction is realted strongly to a couple’s ability to communicate effectively. But heavy alcohol use is associated with more expression of anger, and less warmth and unity in the relationship. These factors decrease a couple’s satisfaction in their marriage and create greater tension (Jacob and Jennison, 2001).
Sathya Narayana Rao & Kuruvilla (1992) found that discord, voidance, indulgence and fearful withdrawal were the commonest coping behaviors and marital breakdown, taking special action, assertion and sexual withdrawal were least coping behaviors.
Appropriate or inappropriate coping strategies adopted by the wives to deal with the stress depend partly on the social adjustment of the individual with alcoholic. The coping strategies used by them include pleading, threatening, arguing, avoiding, withdrawing sexually, being indulging, taking help and taking step towards separation (Orford and Guthrie, 1976).
More research is needed for Psychiatric social worker to have the knowledge necessary to help the wives of alcoholics to cope with their stressors. In order to design the interventions to help these women to cope with the stress of being married to an alcoholic, Psychiatric social worker need to learn more about their experiences and coping strategies. So dearth of information in Indian setting this study was designed to assess the ways of coping strategies and psychological well-being among wives of alcoholics.
Moos and Moos (1984) found that greater use of avoidant coping behaviors in response to a recent stressful event was associated with greater alcohol use, anxiety, depression, physical symptoms and medication use among spouses of alcoholism, present study was also found that spouses of alcohol dependent patients used more of maladaptive focus coping, not problem focus coping and adaptive focus coping behavior however we did not examine the effect of the mention factor in them.
The families with alcohol dependent people even more support from the family members especially from the spouses is required. So, important things like Psychological well-being, strengthening of the coping mechanism of the spouses (wives) of the alcohol dependent persons can be applied to make the family situations more conductive for these dependent people and successful application of different therapeutic interventions than the normal control group.

Cached Pages

All popular search engines like Google, bing, Yahoo and others spider the entire Internet, recording all the metadata details and keywords that appear on all  the pages are then used to determine a page's quality and rank in the search results (along with multiple other criteria). Along with recording metadata and keywords, most search engines also take a snapshot of all webpages on the Internet and store a cache copy of them. This can be extremely useful for users who are stuck behind company, college or government firewalls and are not allowed to access certain websites. 
When the access to a particular webpage is blocked by your network administrator nevertheless you may still be able to access it by viewing a cached copy of it on a search engine. 
All you need to do this is

Step 1
Start your browser and connect to any popular search engine of your choice. Here we are going to use Google for this example. 

Step 2
write this 
cache:<website you want to access>

When you are viewing a cached page, typically Google will mention at the top the date and time from which the cached copy is being displayed. This may vary from webpage to webpage, depending upon how often google spiders that respective webpage. 

Archived Pages

Sometimes you may want to access an even older version of the same webpage for research purposes or just out of curiosity. If you want to see what a webpage looked like several years ago, then there is a very cool tool called the  WAYBACKMACHINE that is available for free at Since the year 1996, has been spiderming the Internet with the intention of creating a permanent digital library of the Internet for researchers, historians and the general public. This is a fantastic tool that allows you to search for and view an old archived version of popular webpages on the Internet from several months or even years back!

Step 1
Open this link
you will find the WAYBACKTIME
Enter the webaddress of the website you want to visit.

Translate and access a webpage

There are various free translation websites available that allow users to translate text and webpages from one language to another on the Internet. 
Google Translate
Yahoo Babelfish

The technology behind the instant translation of webpage is obviously cool. But what is even cooler is the fact that it is possible to use these translation websites to unblock websites and access censored content! 

Let us assume that your college or company has blocked access to the YouTube website and you are shown the blocked error message each time you try to access it. 
But if you are able to connect with the above given translate websites you can unblock YouTube or any other website. 

Step 1 

Step 2
In the from Tab Choose English and in the to tab choose any other language which you can understand.

Step 3
Write in the translation box. Within a few seconds the another version of the website get displayed on the screen. Click on that link. 

The fact of the matter is that even though the website has been translated into Hindi, the interface is still the same and the actual language of the videos that you are going to watch will remain the same. 

Convert format of webpages

There are numerous conversion websites available on the Internet that can convert a website into different formats. 

It is possible to use these websites to access blocked websites on the Internet. 

Step 1 
Open your browser and connect to the website
enter a website that you want to convert into a pdf document.

Step 2
within a few seconds, the website pdfmyurl will allow you to download a PDF version of the website.

Step 3
Open that pdf document after downloading. You've got the webpage which you want to access.

Similarly the other websites are:

These websites can also be used to access blocked websites on the Internet by fooling the local firewall. 

Access web contents via email

Imagine that there is a website on which there is some text or content that you want to access. Unfortunately, your college or company or government has set up a firewall or filtering device that has blocked access to it. But you still really want to access the data or content on that website. What do you do? 
This is where a fantastic service of accessing webpages via email comes into the picture. 
All you have to do is simply send the web address that you want to access via email to a predefined email address and a few minutes later the requested webpage will be emaild back to you. 

The most popular websites that allow you to request blocked web pages via email are the following: 
To request a webpage via email through this website you need to send an email to and the subject can be blank and in the body of the email you need to write the requested webpage address.

To request a webpage via email through this website you need to first register for free on their website and then send an email from the registered email account to and in the subject of the email write the URL of the web page that you wish to request.

Shortened URLs

In the world of Twitter and Instant messaging, where length of characters is a major restriction, shortening of web addresses URLs has become very popular. URL shortening is the technique that allows users to access a particular webpage using its equivalent shortened address instead of the actual web address. Not only does URL shortening make a URL much shorter, it also makes it easier to remember. 
Popular URL shortening websites are:

URL Shortening Means that instead of typing the original long URL in browser address bar, users now have to only type its shortened version. The browser will send an HTTP request to the shortened URL server, which will then send back an HTTP redirect message to the user, redirecting the user to the actual website. Since the initial outgoing HTTP request from the user is going to the URL shortening website and not the actual website that the user is trying to access. 
It means that such a technique can also be used to bypass the local firewall. 

Step 1
Open and shorten the websites URL which you want to access.

Step 2
Copy and paste the shortened URL into your browser.

Website Aliases

Normally we type the domain name of a website. After that the browser send that domain name to the local DNS (Domain Name Server) to convert it into its respective IP address. This process is called DNS lookup. After that the browser knows the IP adress of the domain name that you typed. The browser sends an HTTP request to that IP asking for the webpage that we wish to view. That is how it works. 

Now come to the point. 

If we have in a situation where the websites are blocked by DNS lookup queries. 
Then it is quite easy to access the blocked website. 
All we need to do is just simply type the IP address of the website in place of domain name. 
With this trick we can skip the DNS lookup. The website directly sends the http request to the website which we want to access. 

Here are the steps:

Step 1: Assume that is blocked by our network administrator. In this case try typing the IP address of 

Step 2: Start MSDOS (click on run and type cmd and press enter). After opening command prompt type the following command. 

ping <domain name of website> 

Step 3: Open browser and type the IP address instead of typing the domain name ( If everything goes well we will be able to bypass the filtering mechanism of our network and can access the website. 

now here we need to think a bit. If our network administrator has blocked ping command. Now what to do??
We dont need to worry a lot. 
open this website

And here is an another fact. 
When we used the website for pinging the domain name it shown a different IP address ( 
This is because Google has servers in different parts of the world and depending upon our location we are taken to different servers. 
The best part of this is if the respective IP is also blocked by the network administrator. We can still access the website by typing some other server's IP. 

Now we need to worry a little more. 

A smart system administrator willnot only block the domain name. He will also block the respective IP address at the firewall leve, hence, making it a lot tougher for a user to unblock. 

An IP address is 32-bit number that is written in the dotted-decimal notation. 

We can try accesing the website by converting the dotted decimal number to its octal or any other format and can bypass the local blocks and firewalls. 
you can use the windows calculator or any other application to convert it. 

octal: http://0112.0175.0354.0120
hexadecimal: http://0x4A.0x7D.0xEC.0x50

sometimes it is also agood idea if we try the another versions of the domain names to unblock the access.
try these alternatives;;

Use URL's to cheat your Network Administrator

Sometimes this trick can work by applying some special URL or websites. 
Nevertheless there is no guarentee that it will work every time, but there isn't any harm in trying. 

Suppose is blocked by the network administrator. 
But still you may access facebook by using

If your browser shows an SSL certificate error message, ignore that by clicking on proceed anyway.

After some seconds Facebook will open.
Another trick is trying the web address like this

In this case everything before the sign '@' is ignored and what actually loaded is the facebook web address. 

Use RSS Feed to Access web Content

Many blogs, news sites, sports and other websites whose content changes quite regularly will make something known as an RSS feed available to users. An RSS feed is a subscription to a website through which users can automatically access any updated or new content that may be available. RSS feeds can be read using RSS readers or aggregators like Google Reader

There have been many occasions in the past where your network providor has blocked access to a blog or newspaper or media house that is deemed to be controversial. In such a case, if you try using your browser to connect to the controversial website, then you will be denied access. However, if you want to continue to access the content on the blocked website, then it may be possible for you to subscribe to the RSS feed of that website using any popular RSS aggregator. 

Usually the network administrator would only block direct access to a website, but it may not be possible for them to block access to the RSS feed of a website without blocking the complete RSS Aggregator. 

For example suppose you need to visit absolutestuffs which is blocked by your network administrator, then all you need to do this 

Step 1: Sign in to your google account and open Google Reader 

Step 2: Search for the website you want to access (here i'm searching absolutestuffs)
step 3: Now google reader allows you to access all the content from that website
