General Knowledge is the data, figures, statistics, facts, anecdotes, stories, and almost every other such information that has been collected by various mediums and methods over a period of time for the future reference of oneself to better predict and understand various experiences and contingencies.
General Knowledge can’t truly be quantified. No one can know every detail of this ‘packed with information’ world. However, one can know the most he can and still be hungry for more such knowledge. As Aristotle once said ‘Knowledge is the sea, we don’t know how deep, which’s essence one can barely fathom.’, General Knowledge should be expanded on a consistent basis. This ever-changing world is now changing at speeds much faster than it used to be, asking our data comprehension and memories to develop accordingly.
General Knowledge covers everything from Business to Politics, from Geography to Civics, from Sports to Wars, from Current Affairs to Medieval Times, and much more. One can’t know it all but one also can’t know enough. To quench this knowledge thirst, there are many websites, blogs, YouTube channels, and apps collectively called Portals that provide revised GK on a daily basis. The facts thus provided turn out to be helpful in every walk of life; from discussing something with your friends to a job interview and much more.
