      Great Article sunpreet, at a first glance, i noticed that all your subtitles do not follow the APA format, even though your title does. You can manually edit all the subtitles, or use https://capitalizemytitle.com/ to put each subtitle in the APA format. Welcome again to hubpages.

      Also i would advice you to post this again or edit it, your article is not in a link form, i was very lazy about having to copy out the link and paste it in another tab, thats probably why you haven't gotten people's opinion.

    What's going on with the URL? Why did you change it?

        You can't edit the URL. I'm just curious why you changed it to politics/yourname.

          No, I had to copy and paste the URL as the article was not published and was unable to be found.

            That's not what I mean. Generally the URL is the same as the title of the article, but yours has the word 'politics' and your name in it. The article is not political.

              Yes ma'am, I was not able to find any title related to my article. I was compelled to choose one. The nearest that I found was politics and social.

                Okay, well you create the title first. Then you choose the topic/category. If you can't find what you are looking for, use the search box. In this case, I would suggest 'spirituality' or maybe 'self help'. Usually something will come up that is suitable.

                The URL is then formed out of those choices. There's no need to add your name in.

                  Thank you ma'am. But I think I can't change it now.
                  Any other improvements for the article?

                    At first glance, I think it looks a little untidy. There is too much italicised and bold text.

                    Remove the period/full stop from the third sub-heading.

                    There are some grammatical errors but they are fairly minor. You could get someone to proofread it for you. Also read the text out loud - that's a good way to pick up any awkward sentences. For example "Lending a helping hand doesn't need any degree." Delete 'any' and put 'a university' or 'a college' in front of degree, otherwise it looks odd.

                    It would be a good idea to include some suggestions for 'selfless deeds' in the section where you tell your reader to do one for five minutes.

                    You don't need the image of Winston Churchill. It doesn't enhance the article. The quote is sufficient.

                    I thought the Clinical Science image was an advert - delete it. Again, it does nothing for the article. You don't need an image for every point you make. All images MUST carry a Creative Commons license. You can't just take them from a web page or Google search.

                    You seem to go off topic with the actor stuff. Martyrs and paramilitary don't belong there. I would delete that whole section.

                    Again, delete those Covid images.

                    I can't emphasise this enough: Stay on topic, i.e. the article is about individuals helping out their friends and family. Stick to that topic and get rid of everything else. You are trying to cover too much. Use no more than two or three well-chose, legal to use images. You can get them from Pixabay.

                    Good luck.
