How to expand one''s General Knowledge or Common Sense to deal with the practical situations of ife?
In school life we used to expand our General Knowledge by going through different types of books, current-affairs magazines and reading newspapers. However, we did so to score good marks in examinations or to excel in contests.

Now after passing out the schools, colleges and universities we find that the General Knowledge of real life is different from the academic life. For instance, if a small child comes to you and beg how would you react? Or, if you find RS 1000 note on the street how would you react?

In some such situations of life we do feel lacking common sense to react in quick time. May be as we begin to face such situations more and more in life we get habituated with it. Isn''t it?
