Written text has been changing the world since the time of holy gods. The words have such power and influence over learned people, and so have the writers. These famous writers, poets and authors have always revamped the shape of our thoughts. Here are some of the top and famous writers who have recast the world and intellects diving in it.

Paulo Coelho

Paulo Coelho is a Brazilian novelist who has been respected with numerous international awards. Paulo books have been best sellers and are selling more than a million copies around the globe. His purpose and ideas have gifted this world another belief and a “never known before knowledge”.

Paulo will tell an intriguing story in books, novels which have another world, where all the natural phenomena have been awarded a memory and emotions like humans. His books read not only a story but great concepts which educate us about embracing the present, making decisions and that fear is a more significant obstacle than obstacle itself. His books have also told that universe is living, plants, air and even objects like our clothes are residing since they hold our energy when we wear them.

William Shakespeare

“Shakespeare always seems to have something to say to us” – Nelson Mandela 

Language

shakespeare's play
best plays from history

Shakespeare used and moulded the language in whatever ways, from explaining situations in poetry to telling stories and building plays. His literature is a set of combination of rich words which held the reader’s interest since 16th century till when had written 37 plays. His language was forever continued to be read, enacted and taught in schools and universities from all over the world.

Films and theatres

romeo juliet
Shakespeare’s romantic plays

Shakespeare’s plays were a grand hit and later were produced by Hollywood filmmakers and directors as films. Modern theatre earned wages by showcasing “Romeo and Juliet” performances, to the greatness of writers. The audience was never bored of Shakespeare’s plays and his play tickets still sell out at the same pace. This brought a new culture and a life to historical art, where the past is still moving in the eyes of today’s running world.

The Makers of Adidas And Puma Are Brothers

Adidas and Puma are one of the famous shoe brands around the world, but many do not know that two estranged German brothers founded both these multinational companies are brothers.

Via: fineprintnyc.com

Yes! Adolf Dassler also was known as Adi was the founder of the sportswear company Adidas, and his younger brother of Rudolf Dassler also known as Rudi was the founder of Puma.

Together start

Adolf, who was a sports fanatic, begun to make primarily hand-sewn athletic footwear in his mother’s wash kitchen in Herzogenaurach after his return from World War I.

Via: wp.com

And soon his brother Rudolf returned and joined their small shoemaking business called Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory and worked hard to make it a success.

After few years they tasted success, and their business bolstered soon, and the Dasslers were selling around 200,000 pairs of shoes every year.

The Bitter rivalry

Their business expanded so their competition. The rift between the brothers led to the split of Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory in 1948, dividing the assets and the employees among themselves.

Via: basementapproved.com

The bitter between them was so very fierce that the town of Herzogenaurach was divided and the issue is now registered in history with the name as “The town of bent necks” – people looked down to see which shoes were worn by others. Even the town’s famous football teams were divided into two teams.

The birth of Adidas and Puma

Adi named his company “Adidas,” after his nickname. Rudi founded Puma on the other side of town and kept his company name’ as “Ruda” but eventually changed it “Puma.”

The two brothers never reunited but they were buried in the same cemetery, and as per sources they have spaced as far apart as possible.

Moreover, along with many weird things on the internet, Poop Sender (poopsender.com) can help you to deliver the real poop to your friends and enemies.

What is Poop Sender?

Just like any other online shopping website, Poop Sender workers online to satisfy its customers with exceptional dignity since 2007. However, the only difference is in the type of products. As the name suggests, it is just mean to deliver poops of different animals. That’s right. With the motive of creating a fun and entertaining environment, the website is not involved in the business intentionally or to hurt someone.

Do they deliver real shit?

Only the person who packs the stuff can answer this question as nobody wants to know how they manage everything. However, the website claims that crazy scientists actually go to the zoo or local dairy farms to collect the real thing. But, according to people around the world who have enjoyed the service, it is true that they deliver the authentic, nasty, stinky and putrid poop.

More things to know about PoopSender

The charges of the stuff you order depending on the size of the order, and it takes 5-7 days to deliver the shit to the receiver’s door. Significantly, whatever the website does, it is an entirely legal process. It promises to send the non-hazardous product.
Furthermore, it keeps the sender’s identity entirely confidential as it may offend the receiver sometimes. One may confirm the delivery, but rest remains hidden from the receiver.

With such weird thing happening on the internet, it becomes quite awkward to access such thing. No matter what, it is a unique thing that can be used to mock anybody by keeping your identity hidden. So, try to send someone the real shit.

The basic elements for a man to survive are food, clothing, and shelter and we utilise the natural resources to fulfil these needs. But have you ever wondered how much resources do we use? This is answered using the Ecological Footprint. All the resources we use for our needs comes either by using natural resources directly or by using these resources indirectly as raw materials for production purpose. For example, food and electricity must be produced using raw natural resources.

Relation with Ecological Reserve

It can be compared to a bank statement which shows the incomes against the expenses. Just like this, the footprint shows the populations’ demand for resources against the populations’ supply of resources.

 

relation ecological reserve
Via – www.footprintnetwork.org

Populations demand means how much the population of a particular place or state or country needs for living. It can be only stated by how much the people are consuming. It includes demand for plant products, fibre products, forest products, livestock, infrastructure, and forest to absorb its carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuels. Coming to the supply, it is the biocapacity of a particular region. Biocapacity is the biologically productive land and sea area which includes forests lands, grazing lands, cropland, fishing grounds, and buildings. It is the actual capacity or the supply of the country.

ecological footprint
Via – i.ytimg.com

Measurement of Footprint

Footprints show the amount of nature that is available for a defined population of an area concerning how much amount the society needs to carry on its current activities. In simple terms, its open nature by the amount of required quality to survive. To analyse this, analysts first examine different types of natural and manufactured materials and services used and then they use different calculations to convert these numbers into a land area. These footprints can be measured for an individual level, for cites, for regions, for states, for countries and even for the entire planet. The size of a footprint will vary depending on the volume and different types of natural resources consumed by a population, which in turn depends on lifestyle choices, income levels, and technology. Thus, footprints provide compelling evidence of the impacts of consumption.

measurement ecological footprint
Via – i0.wp.com

They say that many countries are “in the red,” which means they use more natural resources(footprint) than their biocapacity. They are running an “ecological deficit.” When a country’s bio-capacity is greater than its population’s consumption (footprint), the country has an “ecological reserve.” An ecological deficit occurs due to liquidating the own resources by overfishing, importing resources and by emitting more carbon dioxide than their ecosystems can absorb.

Baby Facts

Who does not like the company of a baby? Babies are a cute and adorable bundle of joy. But many people do not know that each baby responds to different actions in different ways. And today we have compiled some facts which might help you in sensing the baby’s responses next time.

amazing facts about babies

Read on to know some cute and amazing Baby Facts:

  • They cannot taste salt, but they have more types of taste buds than adults. So your favourite foods when you were a baby would be different than now.
  • They have a natural tendency to swim. Babies can even hold their breath because of the environment in mother’s womb. I think the money spent on swimming coaches can be saved if we allow the baby to swim right from its birth.

  • They develop a sense of hearing when they are in mother’s womb. Sshh! The baby can listen to, record and memorise what we speak. In fact, the inner ear is the only wholly developed part of the baby at its birth.
  • They have near-sightedness for almost one month after their birth. So next time when you are talking to a new-born, be at a distance of 10 inches from eyes if you want the baby to remember you.
  • A baby will have half the feet size of its parent when it is one year old. I think this helps you gift sandals to the baby’s first year birthday.
baby facts
Via: shopify.com
  • They prefer smiling at grumpy ones. So next time when you meet a baby make grumpy faces at it if you want to see it laugh, and this appears at about 4-6 weeks after birth.
  • Their brain cells are very active. They tend to learn new words, perceive things around them and learn to respond. I wish we had them forever so that it helps me to complete studying my syllabus just on the day before the exam.
  • It can sense both its mother and father with the help of a typical scent. So do not try to fool babies because they have natural capabilities.
  • They lose all hair within three months, and new hair grows. Sometimes new hair can be of different colour too. So do not dream the baby to be tangled in the era.

Happy baby time!

India is one of the famous countries as it is known for its unity in diversity and vibrant culture. And many people visit India and take away with them blissful memories that one can cherish throughout their life.

And yeah! That’s how stories are weaved, and crucial elements from some stories get registered in history.

Today we are exploring the fact that people hardly know, i.e. how few famous metro cities- Madras, Delhi and Bombay are also cities in parts of USA.

Yes, that’s weird, but after reading ahead, you will understand why these places in the United States were named after states of India.

Madras In USA

This city was not always called as ‘MADRAS’! Yup! It was originally named as ‘The Basin’. There are several statements over the debate of the rename.

We love watching movies! Indians are one of the top moviegoers and consume a lot of Bollywood masala and art movies.

There are many Bollywood movies to reckon with, and one such movie is Manthan. This film indeed deserves a top place in the history of Indian cinema.

Why so? Read on to know more about this amazing docu-drama 0f 70s.

Shyam Benegal’s movie Manthan, which was the movie was released in the year 1976, was based on White revolution, was technically produced by the largest number of individuals i.e.500000 farmers of Gujarat.

Manthan Movie – Know more about it!

Very few people know about movie Benegal’s unique middle of the road movie Manthan (Churning). The film was based on a story of White Revolution that was happening in India. Those who do not know about White Revolution then let me give you light on the same.

White Revolution, which was also known as Milk Co-operative Movement and Operation Flood, was started by Verghese Kurien (Father of Indian White Revolution) to achieve the best milk production.

Kurien gave a lot of inputs and helped writer Vijay Tendulkar to come with the script.

Collective might for this amazing Docu drama!

The movie was made with the budget of Rupees twenty lakh and what is hard to believe is that the film was entirely crowdfunded by 5,00,000 farmers who donated Rs. 2 each. I guess this is the only movie which was being financed at the ground level. Up that’s true! And not only the documentary was a hit it was also the winner of many National awards. It was also sent for the Academy awards for Best foreign language movie. Wow ! that was indeed a great achievement.

The title song Mero Gaam Kathaparey was later used in commercials for Amul.

Here is the famous song:

Rajendra Singh – Waterman of India

Water is life!!

We all know the importance of water still we ignore it and let it get waste or polluted. It is also said that next world war could happen over WATER.

But we, of course, would not like to see this happen? Right? There are few like Rajendra Singh who thinks about future.

Read on to know why he is known as ‘Waterman Of India’.

He led to the revival of 5 rivers in Rajasthan

Rajendra Singh who is better known as Jal Pusush or Waterman is water conservationist from Rajasthan, India. His pioneering efforts in water harvesting and management have led to the revival of 5 rivers and brought water to over 1,000 villages in Rajasthan.

We all know Rajasthan faces a lot of water issue and Rajendra thought about it and also took action on it. Rajendra’s continuous efforts have led to ideal water management in their semi-arid areas of Rajasthan.

He along with 45 full-time employees and 230 part-time volunteers came together to run an NGO called ‘Tarun Bharat Sangh’ (TBS). He and his NGO workers use several methods like Johad, storage tanks, check dams and other simple path-breaking ideas.

He is a recipient of Stockholm Water Prize which is known as Nobel Prize For Water.

Many committees appreciated his remarkable work. He won the Stockholm Water Prize, an award also known as “the Nobel Prize for water” in the year 2016.

This is not all he has even won the Ramon Magsaysay Award in the year 2001 for his community work in water management.

 

Via – hutton.com

He was also on the list by “The Guardian” of 50 People Who Could Save The Planet.

It will be no wrong to say that he is ‘Messiah’ and surely deserves the accolades. As per media reports, he is contributing to the society by his methods since more than 20 years. He spends almost three fourth of the year in such activities day and night.

He testifies the famous quote ‘where there is will there is a way’. Yes, he was not at all aware of water conservation methods, but he carried on this noble work.

No doubt he is a true inspiration to us and the generations to come.

Bring the change you wish to see, is what philosophy we should follow. Instead of complaining and pinpointing, why not start a campaign or some effort at an individual level.
What do you think about this amazing man? Let us know in the comments below.

You might be a huge fan of superheroes amalgamated as “The Avengers” but do you know who the real Avengers were? Well if no, then it is the time to discover about the biggest Avengers of the history. As we are all aware of the gigantic holocaust during World War II. It was the enormous human disaster of all time but did the rest of the Jewish became coward after the war? Not exactly. The revenge was justified by the Avengers who stood up for the people who lost their lives during the holocaust.

The Avengers
Via – allthatsinteresting.com

Who was The Avengers?

There were people who were filled with the rage against all the inhumanity and cruelty their community had to go through. Some of them formed a group that contained both the survivors of the holocaust as well as the Jewish partisans. The title that was given to the group was “Nakam” (a Jewish word meaning ‘Revenge’).

What was the group up to?

The purpose of the group was to target the Nazi criminals and assassinate them in the name of revenge against holocaust. They were with the plan to kill as many German as possible. Mainly, up to 6 million which was somewhat equal to people who died in the holocaust.

The Avengers
renegadetribune.com

The biggest plan

As they were planning to kill around 6 million German, there plan involved mass poisoning in America especially in Munich, Berlin, Weimar, Nuremberg, and Hamberg. The leader of the Nakama, Abba Kovner, obtained poison and planned to poison the water supply in some of the cities. Moreover, exemptions were taken to protect as many non-Germans as possible.

However, the plan never became successful due to false documentation which leads Kovner’s arrest.

How far they succeed?

If they couldn’t poison millions of German, they still murdered a number of people. This was possible by poisoning hundreds of loafs of bread. According to a news in The New York Times, the ploy hospitalized around 2300 German prisoners under serious condition.

As per Freedom of Information, National Archives and Records Administration claimed that the poison in the bakery was enough to kill as many as 60,000 people. But, due to the thin usage, it killed only up to 400 German.

Wrapping up

No matter if the group was successful enough in their revenge or not, they still stood up for their community. So, Namak or the real Avengers have set an example for every unjust behavior in the world.

Life is too short and too fast. Ever wondered what changes in life are after 23.

23 is the age when we start entering adulthood. It is the age which is full of emotional and mental imbalance. We have credits cards now, we are done with our degree courses, but there are some left behind things too. It’s the age when you feel all your silly dreams are dissolved and you enter into practical life.

Below are the changes that one undergoes after turning 23.

  • You realise you are more like your parents

life changes 23
Via: modernflourish.com

You get the feeling of getting older. It’s because you have stepped out of your dream world and know started knowing what real life is all about. You start thinking of all the situations too wisely.

  • Health: Top-most priority

This is the age when most of you get engaged or married. Hence, now you start to ponder about your looks and physique. You tend to even overthink before eating anything. All you want is to look good once you step out of the house and visit any party or function.

  • Shedding attachments with your school and college buddies

Gone are the days when you promised that we would meet daily and have fun. You get so engrossed and busy in your jobs that you hardly get time to meet your Besties and have fun with them. Working isn’t an excuse anymore.

  • You pretend as if you don’t know what you want

At the age of 23, you do not have to report your parents; you do have school to grade you, and you do not have peers to compare to. Each one is altogether in a different track and field. You get so terribly trapped between the above things that you hated earlier and now that you miss all of those. You don’t know what exactly you want now.

  • Moving to different cities

life changes after 23
Via: onyamagazine.com

You run for higher studies to study or for others it would be their job demand to work in a different city. We feel proud and highly sophisticated moving away from the house as we did earlier in college times. This time you feel different. There was a time you couldn’t wait to get away from home and now you appreciate it more. You remind self that home is where the heart is.

  • Relationships are complicated

You wish you had a life partner with you at this time. Flirting is something that now you ignore. You feel you are falling in love with someone. It’s because you need that partner to be by your side and hear you out during this challenging transition. Your inner feelings conflict that you cannot share with anyone except your better half.

  • Transitions between internship and career

Via: medium.com

There are a lot of changes going on between fields, salaries, company, office spaces. You are still finding out what is best for you so that you grow big in near future as everyone around you urges to settle you. But for you, it’s quite unsettling.

All you would do is love reading articles like this

We are there for you guys..!!! Post your comments below 🙂

History of Laughter

Laughter is the best medicine. Indeed it’s true as laughing even for five minutes a day can cure you of stress and depression. Seeing a child laugh automatically brings a smile on your face and makes you feel happy.

But have you ever thought about this beautiful emotional-action was done for the first time? We did, and we traced the history to check out its amazing origin and evolution!

history of laughter
via – stackpathdns.com

Laughter originated from chimpanzees, and it continued to early humans.

Chimpanzees’ laughter is not readily recognizable to humans as such, because it is generated by alternating inhalations and exhalations that sound more like breathing and panting.

King Solomon in 931 B.C.  gave the earliest accounts of the healing power of laughter.

The ancient Greek physicians prescribed their patients to visit the hall of comedians. They send their patients to the theater to be entertained as a part of the healing process. Till date, the doctors suggest that the patients should focus on positive and happy things and do things that give them pleasure because it helps in quick recovery.

Early Native Americans had clowns who worked with Witch Doctors. They too realized the powerful effects of humor and laughter in healing. The 3rd most important person in the tribe was the clown.

Throughout the centuries Court Jesters were hired to relieve the royalty’s stress from their governing duties.

In the 14th Century, French surgeon – Henri de Mondeville used humor and laughter therapy to aid recovery from surgery.

He wrote, “Let the surgeon take care to regulate the whole regiment of the patient’s life for joy and happiness allowing his relatives and special friends to cheer him and by having someone tell him jokes.”

Even today people join laughter clubs to keep the happiness quotient in their lives alive.

Lina Medina – World’s Youngest Mother.

Many weird things happen around the world, which can make us think twice whether to believe those unusual incidents or let them name as a miracle. Following that here’s the glance of a story of The young Peruvian girl who gave birth to her son when she was just five years and seven months old.

Lina Medina belonged to a low-income family from a small village Lima in Peru. At the small age of just five, after Lina complained about intense stomach pains, her mother and even the doctors who consulted assumed the reason of her abnormally big abdomen and the pain is due to some kind of tumor, but the reality was something entirely different. When doctors found out that she was actually pregnant, it left everyone in shock.

On May 1939, Lina gave birth to a baby boy by Caesarian Section. The doctors also discovered that Lina had matured sexual organs from precocious puberty, which was very surprising. And her father was taken in on suspicion of sexual abuse, but he was later released due to the lack of any evidence.

But what is more interesting is about the origin of this phrase. There are several origin theories for the “Horn Ok Please.

As mentioned, there is no specific data available, but it is said that renowned conglomerate  Tata Group is behind the line.

In the early days, most of the trucks were manufactured by Tata Group and one of their product’s (detergent) name was called ‘OK.’

Image source

And to publicize their new brand, they creatively added the name as well as the Logo in the shape of lotus flower behind the trucks.

As per another theory, the original phrase was Horn OTK, please. OTK was used as short form for overtaking. And since the T would merge because of the paneling of the truck it got mistaken for OK.

Many do not know that the usage of this phrase is banned in Maharashtra state.

Did you ever think that you can boost up your party in the most different way with just a unique way of serving a Watermelon juice?

If you are thinking to do some quirky stuff for your next party, then try this DIY Watermelon dispenser. Summer is upon us and watermelons are out in the market.

Psst: This is so simple that guys can make it for impressing your girlfriend or wife and kids.

What all you need?

  1. A watermelon (try to buy a bigger one which can stand on its own when you keep it straight). Don’t worry if you don’t get a watermelon which stands straight on it on a flat surface, and you can use a bowl for it. In that case, add a container to your list.
  2. A spout (like how you have in your water storage tank[filter])
  3. A knife
  4. A big Spoon
  5. A juice mixer

Method

1. Slice off the top

watermelon juice
Via – wp
  • Well with the above image you might have already guessed!
  • Cut the top of the watermelon. Try to cut less of the red pulp from it.
  • Do not throw away the cut piece, you will require it!

2. Scoop out

  • Now start scooping the pulp with the spoon. Try to scoop only the red pulp the more you scoop the white layer; more your juice will become less sweet.
  • Start putting your scooped pulp into the Juicer.

3. Time to add the spout

  • Coming to a major step!!
  • Cut a small circular hole where you will fix your spout. You can use a rounder (geometry compass) for this (which is both sides pointed) keep the spouts diameter in your mind. You will be a mess if you cut the circle more the diameter of the spout.
  • With the spout, you might have got a rubber ring, place it on the outside of the watermelon.
  • Push the spout in through the hole created by you.
  • Next step is to fix the small steel bolt you have. This will go on the internal side of your scooped watermelon.
  • Just turn it round as you fix a screw and a bolt.

4. Preparing the mocktail

  • Done Fixing
  • Now start grinding the watermelon juice.
  • You can add some cranberry juice or lime juice or some strawberry juice to make a good cocktail.
  • You can use the top of the watermelon which you had cut and kept aside as a lid of your new invention. Your surprise is ready!
  • Let your loved ones self-serve themselves, and they will enjoy it!

Important Vastu Tips For Bedroom

For an ideal bedroom, Vastu is an essential factor to be followed in your home. Vastu helps in many ways like it cuts down on losses and worries, aids in peaceful sleep, gives you energizing mornings, and much more.

easy vastu tips for bedroom
Via: farmershomefurniture.com

The major Vastu tip before knowing others is that bedroom must be in the South direction.

  • The door of the bedroom should open at least 90 degrees to allow all the positive energy flow in.
  • The person sleeping in the master bedroom should keep his/her head pointing towards the south.
  • Never keep the mirror in front of your bed. It affects the person’s mental health and lets his stress grow.
  • The bed in your bedroom should not be in alignment with sharp corners. This creates stress.
  • The best place for keeping wardrobes and shelves is in the South-west corner of the master bedroom.
  • There is a strict NO for keeping plants and aquariums in the bedroom.
    Vastu-tips-Bedroom
    Via: architectureideas.info
  • Never keep clutter under your bed. Remove the clutter as this would hinder your future progress and wouldn’t give you a sound sleep.
  • Avoid using dark or too bright colors in the bedroom. The ideal colors are shades of blue, green and off-white.
  • The feeling of peace should take over your mind as soon as you enter the room. You can put a beautiful painting or an inspiring quote. So that’s when one comes into the room, he/she opens with a smile and positive energy.
  • Television and laptops should be avoided in the bedroom.
  • Study table in the bedroom should be placed in the East, North or North-east.
  • Idols of God should be best left for Puja Room as if one sleeps with his/her legs pointed towards God, it would be disrespectful.
  • Avoid master bedroom or any sleeping zone in the center of the home.
  • For children’s bedroom, the ideal location should be East or West side.

Don’t delay in adopting these Vastu tips.

In 1886, he moved to Chicago where he worked in a drugstore and later bought it from the owner. He built a two-story building which was used for the mixed purpose. That included apartments on the second floor, retail store, and new drugstore.
Although he declined to pay the architect and steel company, he built the third floor to rent it as a hotel at the time of World’s Columbian Exposition. However, the last floor level was never completed.

What was so unusual about the building?

Other than its name, the building holds some mysteries behind it. The ‘castle’ was used to murder many people to sell their corpses as cadavers. Moreover, these cadavers were used as a proof to claim money from a various insurance company as he was an insurance fraudster.

When he killed his friend’s daughters, he was arrested by the Police of Philadelphia. During his investigation, it revealed that he had murdered around 200 people throughout America and Canada. However, he was sentenced to death as the result.

As a confession before his punishment, he claimed- “I was born with the devil in me. I could not help the fact that I was a murderer, no more than the poet can help the inspiration to sing. I was born with the ‘Evil One’ standing as my sponsor beside the bed where I was ushered into the world, and he has been with me since”- H H Holmes.

Wrapping up

Even though he gave many contradictory statements for his sins, one thing was constant that Satan possessed him. No wonder what he did, he left the mark that signifies the height of the evil action.

There are so many wonders in the acknowledgment of this world that are beyond our thoughts. The theories of science, logic, and medicine, do not believe in miracles. But, certain things leave us speechless, when it’s about the universe. In the same series, we really want to share with you about “Rescuing Hug“. Did you know about the case of this miracle hug?  If no, then read on!

The iconic twins

These twins, Brielle and Kyrie Jackson, were born 12 weeks premature in 1995.

One baby was struggling to be alive. Both the babies were kept safely in separate incubators and as per standard practice, new born babies are kept in different places to reduce the risk of cross-infection.

Unconventional idea by nurse

But the hospital nurse, Gayle Kasparian, didn’t feel that conventional remedies can rescue the baby, so she asked the authorities to keep them in the same incubator.

She also made sure that she has parental permission as well for keeping the twins in the same incubator. And as soon as the door was closed, they couldn’t believe their eyes as they saw Brielle snuggling up Kyrie.

Within few minutes, she was calmed down, and her blood oxygen readings were changing for good. And, in a matter of time, as they slept, Kyrie, stronger baby, wrapped her arm around a little sister, Brielle who was struggling hard to get stability at her heart rate.

Dubbed as ‘Rescuing Hug’

And since then the picture of Kyrie hugging Brielle went to to be known as ‘Rescuing Hug’. And after this case, many hospitals adopted the way of co-bedding premature twins, triplets, and quads. For example,

The University of Massachusetts Memorial went on with the path-breaking concept in medicine and co-bedded at least 100 sets of multiple premature babies.

And what is more surprising that over a period of years, they never ever found the case of infection among twins. Later researchers came up to the conclusion that premature twins co-bedding have good number health benefits.

What do you think about this magical but real experience of these babies? Do you too know some interesting facts just like ‘Rescuing Hug’ that helped to change the science and medicine field, then do not forget to mention the stories below.

It is easy to gulp down a burger, fries, and cola at fast food restaurants. But do you know that it would take 7 hours of work out to burn off the calories? We don’t think so that you exercise for so many hours after eating.

Unfortunately, our nutritious home-cooked food has been overpowered by fast food. But people have to realise that this is taking a toll on our health. Regular eating of junk food can lead to obesity and many health issues like cardiovascular diseases, liver damage and among others.

Matter of taste, not hunger

Hunger is not only a related to your tummy but also to your tongue.  Our never-ending hunger has led the emergence of fast food restaurants among us. They target our taste buds and hence compel us to compromise on nutrition and health. Many do not know that that fast food makers add extra sugar and food dye to make it more appealing.

They make you crave for more

If you think that it is you, who choose your meal every time, then you are wrong. Do you remember, every time you order a single burger, they offer you a combo with fries? Every meal is wrapped in a combo to earn more money with just a little add-on.

A research study has shown that the level of satisfaction in a fast food restaurant is directly proportional to the money we spend. Isn’t it confusing? But that’s true. The fast-food chain restaurants try to drain out maximum dollars out of our wallet, and we enjoy it.

You are not getting the best at home

Almost all fast food chains have introduced ‘free home delivery’ option for the customers. It sounds good, but it’s not free every time. Even you are not aware of the quality of food. Special offers are only for online order. This means that there is a difference in the food you get in the restaurant and at your home.

Besides, while you are taking your order to home or getting home delivery, so much paper or plastic is used for wrapping. Styrofoam containers are used to deliver food to you. Many types of research claim how large production and selling of fast food is creating a negative impact on the environment.

Well, whatever. You can’t resist yourself to fall in love with delicious fast foods but you can, of course, limit the intake and opt for the exercise regime.

Always you do not have the same kind of urine…! Different urine gives a different picture of your health.

Here are some vital signs and signals that you must not as they inform you about what is going on inside your body :

SWEET SMELL

It is not because of anything fresh you have taken. According to Dr. Holy Philip, “Sweet smell in urine is sometimes important in the diagnosis of diabetes. It shows that your blood sugar level is not ok.” If your urine smells sweet, then you should go for a diabetes check.

IT ISN’T TRANSPARENT

This could be a signal of ‘urinary tract infection’. The unusual colour could be of bacteria and red blood cells. You might be feeling well but don’t ignore the change in colour of urine.

RED COLOR

Sometimes it happens because of excess intake of watermelon or other red fruits, but if the colour is too red, then it could be blood in urine. It could be an infection, stone in kidney or even cancer.

TOO MUCH SMELL

Urine usually stinks, but if the smell is too harsh, then it could be a signal of a bladder infection. If it has a rotten smell, then you should immediately consult a doctor.

IRRITATION WHILE URINATING

Some people say that it happens when we eat too many chillies or spices. It usually happens because of lack of water in your body. But if you are taking enough water and still feeling irritation while peeing, then it could be a signal of urinary infection.

FREQUENT URINATION

It is a primary signal of urinary tract infection. If you are feeling irritation every-time you urinate, or feeling to pee very frequently, then it is a symptom of a disease. It happens in males after the age of 60. In women, it could be a signal of pregnancy. Hormonal changes increase blood flow to Liver. It sometimes happens because of excess caffeine or alcohol.

So next time you notice any of the symptoms or differ mentioned above, don’t ignore, immediately see a doctor.

They say blood is thicker than water. They also say, the way to have power is to take it, even if you have to spill the blood of your near and dear ones.

On every new moon night (Amavasya), one can hear shrieks of Kaka! Mala Vachva!’ (Uncle! Save Me!) from the fort of Shaniwar Wada in Pune. Locals believe that the ghost of a young Prince runs down the corridors of this haunted fort, shouting in his weird voice. Some people claim to have heard the shrill cry.

The Haunted Fort – Shaniwar Wada

Shaniwar Wada was built by Peshwa Bajirao I. The foundation stone of this fort was laid on a Saturday (Shaniwar in Marathi). Thus, the fort was named Shaniwar Wada (Wada – residence).

Peshwa Bajirao I had two sons, Nana Saheb and Raghunathrao. Nana Saheb, being the elder son, became the Peshwa after Bajirao’s death. Nana Saheb had three sons. His eldest son, Vishwasrao, died in the Third Battle of Panipat in 1761. So his second son, Madhavrao, became the Peshwa after Nana Saheb’s death. As the new Peshwa was too young, his uncle, Raghunathrao, became his regent. But the regent had other plans. He wanted to be the Peshwa himself.

Via – upload.wikimedia.org Peshwa Vishwasrao

The Young Peshwa – Narayanrao

Raghunathrao conspired against Madhavrao. However, his plan backfired, and he was put under house arrest. Sadly, Madhavrao succumbed to tuberculosis in 1772. Now the new Peshwa was Narayanrao, the third and last son of Bajirao I. At that time he was merely 17-years-old.

Via – theindianportrait.com Pehwa Narayanrao

Soon, Raghunathrao was released from house arrest, and he again became the young Prince’s regent. But old habits die hard. The uncle again started conspiring against his nephew. Narayanrao got wind of this conspiracy, and once again Raghunathrao was confined to his home.

However, Lady Macbeth decided to help Macbeth. Raghunathrao’s wife, Anandibai, asked the Gardis for help. The Peshwa was not very popular among the Gardis, and they felt more than happy to help overthrow him.

The Fatal Letter

Anandibai convinced Raghunathrao to write a letter to the Gardis. In the letter, he asked the Gardis to capture Narayanrao (Narayanrao-ana dhara; dhara – capture). Not happy with the content of this message, Anandibai changed just one alphabet of the Marathi language to make the letter fatal. She turned ‘dhara’ to ‘mara,’ meaning ‘kill.’ The Gardi chief, Sumer Singh Gardi, agreed to the instructions in the letter. Definitely, the pen proved to be mightier than the sword!

Via – upload.wikimedia.org

On the last day of the Ganesh festival, the Gardis entered the Peshwa’s chamber by force. Narayanrao realized that he was in trouble and also that his uncle sent the murderers. So, he rushed down the corridors screaming, ‘Kaka! Mala Vachva!’. The Gardis were too quick for the young lad. They caught him, killed him and chopped his body into several pieces. They carried the body pieces in an earthen pot and secretly cremated him by the river in the middle of the night. The gate through which his body parts were taken has been named as the Narayan gate.

It is believed that the ghost of the young Peshwa still roams the fort of Shaniwar Wada asking for help, as nobody had stepped forward to help him on that doomed day.

What comes to mind when someone says ‘condiment’ – tomato ketchup? Mayonnaise? Probably mustard too. Ketchup and mustard are probably the most famous condiments. Go to CCD or Barista and order a savoury item. You always get mustard and ketchup to go with it. There are a lot of things that make mustard a fascinating condiment. You might not like it, but hey it’s pretty good for you!

origin of mustard sauce
Via: seriouseats.com

Origin of Mustard Sauce

The condiment we have is made from the seeds of the mustard plant. The whole, ground, cracked, or bruised mustard seeds are then mixed with water, vinegar, lemon juice, wine, salt, and often other flavourings liquids and spices, to create a paste or sauce ranging in colour from bright yellow to dark brown. The taste of mustard ranges from sweet to spicy.

Most often, mustard is used as a condiment on cold meats. It is also used as an ingredient in mayonnaise, vinaigrette, marinades and barbecue sauce. In the Netherlands and northern Belgium, it is commonly used to make mustard soup. Sometimes, mustard can also act as an emulsifier. This means that it can stabilise a mixture of two or more immiscible liquids like oil and water. On adding it to Hollandaise sauce, mustard can inhibit curdling too.

Storage and Nutritional Value

Mustard has antibacterial properties. For this reason, it does not require refrigeration for safety. It won’t grow mould, mildew or any harmful bacteria. In fact, it can last indefinitely without becoming inedible or dangerous. It can dry out or lose flavour due to oxidation, though.

storage nutritional value mustard
Via: thespruce.com

As a condiment, mustard averages approximately five calories per teaspoon. Some of the many vitamins and nutrients found in mustard seeds are selenium and omega3 fatty acids. Selenium and magnesium have high anti-inflammatory properties. They also help to reduce the severity of asthma and rheumatoid arthritis, low blood pressure and may even help prevent heart attacks!

Additionally, this ingredient is also rich in phytonutrients called isothiocyanates which may prevent or stall the growth of gastrointestinal and colorectal cancers. Yellow mustard is technically your perfect condiment. With zero fat and virtually no calories, sugar or salt, yellow mustard is one condiment you can dab, squeeze and squirt with abandon.

Ketchup vs Mustard

Ah, the great debate. Well then, let’s get on with it! If it comes to nutritional value, mustard takes home the trophy. Ketchup may contain tomatoes but in no way does that means it’s diet friendly. One-fourth of a bottle of ketchup is sugar. In comparison, mustard has zero fat and virtually no calories. Regarding taste, the debate becomes more balanced. Many people just don’t like the pungent flavour that mustard has. Ketchup has a more subdued and pleasant effect on the tongue. Plus there is also the fact that ketchup is used more widely as compared to mustard. Who eats french fries with mustard sauce after all?

Presence of an Aam Aadmi Party in Pakistan! And that too not one but six of them and no prizes for guessing their motive!.

After researching on Internet, we came across a fact about Aam Aadmi Party that shocked us and will surely startle you as well.

We all know how renowned Arvind Kejriwal and his Aam Admi Party is. However, never knew that its electoral success and subsequent popularity could be so influential that it would lead to more than half dozen AAP parties in Pakistan.

Yes, you read it right. As per media reports, many political outfits in Pak have the same name and similar ideology as well.

Let us read some interesting fact about these Indian AAP party inspired parties:

1. One of the Aam Aadmi Parties is led by a human rights activist from Gujranwala named Arslan Ul Mulk. The original name of the party was Pakistan Mujhahir League. The coincidence doesn’t end here. The party founder’s most favoured protest method is hunger strikes!

2. Then there is Aam Aadmi Justice Party which is led by Mian Ghulam Rasool. The party founder is an advocate at the Islamabad High Court, and the ideology is that of a new vision, new minds, prosperity and justice.

3. There is another Aam Insan Movement which was commenced by Rana Moeen Akhtar, and there is Aam Log Party Pakistan led by Muhammad Naseem Sadiq.

4. There is also an Aam Admi Party in Islamabad led by Adnan Haider Randhawa. Randhawa is a human rights activist and lawyer. The objective of the party is to strive for national reformation by replacing corrupt officials to bring down the rule of the elite.

5. As per media report, the election poll panel’s website also show many more AAP parties like Aam Pakistani Ittihad Party led by Sajid Iqbal, Aam Pakistani Party launched by Syed Safdar Rizvi in Karachi, Aap Janab Sarkar Party in Lahore by Dr Amber Shahzada and All-Pakistan Aam Aadmi Party as well, in Rawalpindi by Nasir Mehmood.

There is a vast majority of horrific deaths that took place in Roman and Greek mythology. Many of these deaths were caused by very gruesome and peculiar punishments that were imposed by the Gods. Here is a list of the most devastatingly repulsive deaths that occurred and the brutal sanctions that were given in the mythology.

Prometheus

In Greek mythology, Prometheus the trickster defied Gods and presented ‘Men’ with fire. For his disobedience, Zeus sentenced him to eternal punishment. Prometheus was chained to a stone, and every day an eagle (symbolising Zeus) would feed on it. Since he was immortal, his liver would grow back, and the eagle would again come and feed on his liver.

Ixion

Once, Zeus brought Ixion to Olympus as a guest. Instead of being thankful, Ixion tried to seduce Hera (Zeus’s wife). As a result, Zeus blasted him with a thunderbolt and was bound to a burning wheel that spun forever.
ixion mythology

Narcissus

Narcissus was the beautiful son of a river god. Echo (mountain nymph) fell in love with Narcissus, but he didn’t reciprocate her feelings. Consequently, Nemesis the God of revenge decided to punish him. She tempted him to a pool where he saw his reflection and fell in love with it and committed suicide.

Erysichthon

Erysichthon was the king of Thessaly. He ordered to cut down the tree from Demeter’s sacred grove. This lead to the killing of one of the dryad nymphs, the nymph’s last words was the curse on Erysichthon. As a result, Demeter responded to the evil and punished him with endless hunger. When he was out any source of food, he ended up eating himself, and hence, died.

Medusa

We all know Medusa, the woman with snakes for hair and could turn people into stone. But, she was not always this bad. Medusa was once a lovely woman and was raped by Poseidon in Athena’s temple. This was followed by Athena turning Medusa’s hair into snakes, for being such a temptress. Later, Medusa was killed by Perseus who got help from Gods to kill her, including Athena herself.

MIY toothbrush bracelet with your old brushes

Well, let’s make a MIY toothbrush bracelet with your old brushes! Shocked by the name! This is really going to be fun! Try it home it’s quite a way simple and a bit innovative.
Ok! Let’s make it.

via: kraftykid

What will you require?

  • Some water
  • A saucepan (you can use any other vessel you are comfortable with)
  • Plastic toothbrushes
  • Stove
  • A thick hand towel
  • Heat resistant tong
  • Pliers (you will find one in your toolbox)
via: littlewillowtree 

Method?

On your stove, keep water for boiling in a saucepan/any vessel.

While the water is boiling pull off the Tufts/bristle of the brush with the help of pliers.Once you see the water boiling put your old bristle-less brushes (you can use new if you want) into it.

The boiling water will soften the brushes which will then become bendable.

Do you remember, when you fill hot steaming/boiling water in a plastic bottle!

Lol yes! It changes its shape automatically. But here we will manually have to do it. Remove one brush out of the boiling water in a minute or half, with the help of the heat-resistant tong.

You need to this part of MIY very carefully. Do not hurt your self by holding the hot brush with your bare hands.keep the towel/thick napkin ready before you remove the brush out from the boiling water.

via: HezaChan – DeviantArt

After picking out the brush from the water place it on the towel. You need to do this very quickly before the brush gets cool down.
Wrap the towel around the brush and start bending the brush with the help of the tong. Remember the pores of the bristle should remain at the inside when you turn it.

Oops, the brush got cool before you get the bracelet shape! Don’t worry!!

Put the same half bent brush back into the boiling water and remove it from the water when you feel the brush is soft and s ready for the bending procedure. Bend it until you get it to your size bangle shaped!

It will cool down within a minute or two. You can make this is a different way too.

You just have to add one more step. Just after you remove the soft brush out from the boiling water start twisting it from both the sides. Then again put it into the water.

Remove it and bend it according to the required size. And your MIY colorful toothbrush bracelet is ready!

Much controversy surrounded the Indian soap opera ‘Pehredar Piya Ki’. The show portrayed a 10-year-old married to an adult girl. The show finally went off air following a ban petition. The show promoted child marriage, glorified objectification of women by a kid according to petitioners. However, do you know that in the breathtaking beauty of flower-laden mountains, live women who actually marry ten year or 12-year-old boys? NO! The government does not interfere and cannot interfere. At approximately 3000 to 4000 ft above sea level, Malkangiri of Indian state Orissa houses one of the primitive tribes ‘BONDA’. Believing themselves to be starting point of human civilization, they resent outsiders and still follow barter system

AN  UNUSUAL WEDLOCK

 One of the most unusual things about this tribe is their Marriage procession. Bonda women marry boys ten or twelve years younger than them. So a BONDA girl in her twenties marries a ten-year-old. She takes an oath to protect and feed her child husband until he becomes an adult. And the husband in return takes an oath to feed and protect the girl when she ages and loses her strength in future. Instead of dowry, they pay exact opposite, termed as ‘BRIDE PRICE’. Elder brother of child groom can pay the bride price, but the groom has to return it later compulsorily. Economic needs and physical support are the prime motives of such marriages; sexual relationship becomes a second priority. An intimate relationship is not established until boys become adults.

The process of divorce is LUNG-SISI. In case of adultery committed by a woman, husband demands double of bride price from the woman. In the case where a man commits adultery, he can’t marry again by the community ritual.

COMBATIVE AND PROTECTIVE

Extremely aggressive, always equipped with Bow and Arrow, BONDA men fiercely protect their wives. This often results in a fight within the tribe. BONDA women are also well trained in using weapons. Equipped with lethal weapons, they always accompany their husbands in the battles. And defend their husbands from attacks.

  • QUIRKY ATTIRE

    unusual wedlock
    Via thetelegraphindia.com

    BONDA women have special attire. Believing in the legendary curse of goddess Sita, they shave their heads and clad themselves in semi-nude fabrics. They think Sita was once disrespected by the elder women of the tribe. Enraged by the act, Sita cursed the community women to stay semi-nude forever. Wearing anything around the waist is complete TABOO. All BONDA women conform to this dress code. Those who deviate are supposed to bring a curse on their family. Few new generation girls have broken the norms and wore the sari, keep long hair. Community members treat them as outcast and Untouchables. No boy from the community marries them.

  • LIVE, EAT AND DRINK

    Via Wikipedia

Addiction to liquors is quite prevalent in both BONDA men and women. They are addicted to intoxicating sago palm juice. They even believe that Sago  Palm juice is nutritious drink and feed it to their newborns. Boys grab their drinks on their own from family tree for the first time after a fixed age. BONDA are aggressive and sluggish because of their addiction to this intoxicating liquor

The literacy rate is low in the community. Their dialect Remo has no written form. Owing to exceptional provisions provided to scheduled tribes by the constitution, not all laws apply to BONDA tribe. Despite numerous efforts to bring them mainstream, many of the members of BONDA community remain oblivious to the advancement of civilization.

Get Rid Of Love Bites

Love bites are commonly also known as Hickies or Kiss marks. These marks last for more than a week if they are too dark. These are nothing but a patch/a kind of discoloration of your skin due to scratching or sucking the sensitive areas of your skin aggressively. Many want to get rid of love bites and some love to show off.

Yes, some people love to show off these marks. Few people find out ways to avoid the embarrassment by hiding it either with their hair, extra clothes like muffler, scarfs or solid color shirts/tops or scarfs.

The best way used by women is to hide it through her compact or other makeup powders.

Let us learn on how one can remove it in a very natural way apart from hiding them:

ALCOHOL

Rubbing the alcohol is the best remedy to get rid of the love bites. If the time span is not much since you’ve got is mark then you can immediately rub alcohol to your red love patch with some cotton gently.

Via: onlymyhealth.com

You can do this several times in a day. To be frank, this procedure works slowly. You may get rid of the love bite within a day, and it may also take a day more for you to get rid of it.

TOOTHPASTE

Toothpaste is one of easiest ways to get rid of Love Bites. Apply any toothpaste on the mark and let it stay till it dries.

When it dries, apply some chilled water to it and make it wet again. Do this at least thrice. The third time when you make the damp paste, start rubbing it with your toothbrush. Do this for at least 5-7 mins.

This procedure may get a bit painful but will definitely work for you.

You can repeat this as many times you want at intervals of 1 hour but make sure to be gentle with yourself. Don’t repeat the process it may also cause later irritation on your skin.

Sleep, one of the most valued thing in life, which most of us take for granted. But there do exist some people for whom getting a good nights sleep is a dream. 

How narcoleptics live

There is a disorder called Narcolepsy, in which the ability to regulate the sleep-wake cycle is disturbed. These people do fall asleep, but the quality of sleep is not so good, such that they get up all groggy and never fresh like ordinary people. This leads to excessive daytime sleepiness, so much so that they can literally fall asleep in the midst of activity like writing, driving, etc. But they continue that particular action even in their sleep and have no memory of it when they wake up. The boundary between sleep and wakefulness is blurred. They are always in a sleep-deprived state.

narcoleptics live
Via: julieflygare.com

There is a tetrad of symptoms-  hallucinations, sleep paralysis, cataplexy and excessive daytime sleepiness. Sleep paralysis is an inability to speak or move immediately after waking up. That can be scary, but it doesn’t last for that long.  Cataplexy means a sudden loss of muscle tone-knee buckling which can lead to the person collapsing on the ground. Consciousness is not lost in the entire episode.

Causes of Narcolepsy

The cause of narcolepsy remains unknown. There is a neuropeptide called as orexin, produced by neurons (brain cells), which regulates the sleep-wake cycle. Loss of these particular neurons results in narcolepsy.

As the cause of not known, a full recovery is not possible. Drugs which stimulate the brain cells can be used as a part of therapy. Lifestyle changes are a must.

E = mc2  Remember this equation? Of course, how can anyone forget this small but highly complicated equation that we learned in our school days and many scholars are studying till yet and who discovered this equation – Sir Albert Einstein. The Nobel prize winner who is responsible for many crucial discoveries won Nobel Prize in Physics, not for his most famous equation as it is just the most famous because of its application in war. He got his Nobel prize for proving that light comes in quantum particles, not just waves.

In the world of science, Einstein successfully marked his place forever. He is the one who demonstrated the link between mass and energy that led to the nuclear energy today. He is the one who observed the zigzag movement particles in suspension, helped to prove the existence of atoms and molecules. He is the one who explained that time and motion are relative to their observers. He is the one behind the Manhattan project. These all are his masterworks that made him immortal and memorable forever.  But, there is a lot to know about him, so let’s have a look at the story:

It’s better to choose a Bad Job with a Good Boss rather than a Good Job with a Bad Boss.

Below are the traits of a Good Boss and a Bad Boss.

  • Motivation

The Bad one will continuously remind you of the mistake you have made or even fire you while a good one doesn’t give importance to faults of an employee. He instead inspires the employee to work better and smarter by helping them.

  • Fair & Unfair Behaviour

A Bad Boss will be biased towards a particular gender or caste and give them promotions and extra benefits.

Via: WordPress.com

A Good Boss understands every employee with their capabilities and talents and rewards them accordingly.

  • Last Say in a Decision or Situation

The bad one will take himself in the most superior and intellectual manner by having his last say in the decision by considering his own business profits while a good boss will always be very humble. He takes his employees inputs and collectively decides for the benefit of a whole company.

  • Work-Life Balance

A Bad Boss doesn’t look after the needs of the employee and makes him work for long only to get his work done.

Via: kbic.com

Whereas, a good one helps the employee to keep balance with work and life. He makes them work peacefully in the required office hours, thus making them feel that they are valuable for the company.

  • Appreciation

A Bad Boss never appreciates an employee even if he has done a good job so that he need not have to give rewards for the same.

A Good one gives due credit to an employee as he understands that giving respect to an employee encourages him to work with more dedication. A pat on his back makes a long way for the company.

  • Breakdown Situation

A Bad Boss will start the blame game in a breakdown situation. They will use the fear tactic which makes employees lose trust over the boss.

Whereas, good ones will sit down with the employees in the situation of haphazard and remove ways and solutions to fix it. This makes the employees develop trust over their bosses.

  • Transparency

A Bad boss will always keep secrecy in the company’s growth and profits earned. While a good one will always be honest with the employees about the Company plans, growth, and profit.

Do you too have some more points to add to that differentiates good boss and lousy boss then do not forget to mention in comments below!

Greek Mythology – the vast collection of the most scandalously delightful and tragic legends and stories that humankind ever imagined. Over thousands of years, Greek mythology has collected everything, from the sweeping tales of adventures, wars, and the Olympians, to everyday stories about ordinary people. While many of these stories, like most myths, were aimed at explaining natural phenomena, some stories have most fantastical and romantic elements. Since the dawn of the Roman Empire, Greek mythology has been a major influence on culture and art all across the world. Even today, it continues to inspire books, movies, discussions, and tourism.

While you may be well aware of some popular Greek myths like the story Daedalus and Icarus, the Trojan War and the legends of Heracles, some more unique stories are often overlooked. Here are some such lesser-known stories from Greek mythology

Arachne And The Wrath of Athena

Arachne And The Wrath of Athena
Via – wikepedia.com

If you hate spiders, you likely have goddess Athena to blame. Arachne was a weaver of great skills, so much so that she was considered to have been blessed by Athena herself. Arachne however, dismissed this compliment, stating that her weaving was better than the goddess herself. Athena, the patron of wisdom, diplomacy, battle strategy and yes, crafts, did not take this insult lightly. Disguising herself as an old woman, she asked that Arachne beg for forgiveness from Athena. She refused, instead of calling on the heavens, goading Athena to compete with her. Removing her disguise, Athena accepted the challenge and both got weaving. Athena’s weaving showed the times the gods had punished the mortals for claiming equality with them.

But Arachne wove something more terrible. She showed the gods’ misuse of power, particularly how Athena’s father Zeus seduced mortal women. The goddess realized that she was defeated, not only in content but also in quality- Arachne’s weaving was truly exceptional. In a rage, she tore down the weaving and hit Arachne. Arachne in turn hanged herself to death. Athena, still finding Arachne’s hubris unforgivable, laid down a curse even as she gave her back her life- Arachne and all her descendants would become spiders, forever hanging from the webs that they created.

Pandora And The World’s Evils

Pandora And The World’s Evils greek story
Via – ancient-origins.com

Prometheus, a Titan (the generation of divine deities preceding the gods), enraged Zeus when he stole fire from Olympus and gave it to humans. He punished Prometheus by chaining him to a rock to have an eagle peck his liver, every day.  But the All-father was not done yet. He decided that even the humans needed some smiting to teach them a lesson. So he ordered his children Hephaestus and Athena to create Pandora, the first human woman. Each god then gave her irresistible but corrupting powers, and she was cast down to Earth as a wife for Epimetheus, Prometheus’ brother. Along with her came a jar or pithos (often misrepresented as a box) and the express order to never open it.

But Pandora was designed by the gods to be curious. She simply could not resist and opened the jar to take a peak. Out came flowing all the world’s evils, and by the time Pandora closed the jar, only Eplis, the spirit of hope, remained inside. Zeus had his revenge by unleashing death and suffering on the world. It is hard to miss the sexist slant in the story- despite it being Zeus’ plan, Pandora often took the burnt. But the Greek myths are not known to be very morally correct anyway. This is one of the most popular stories of Greek mythology containing elements of theodicy, as it tries to explain why it is evil in the world.

The Tragedies of Narcissus and Echo

greek mythology The Tragedies of Narcissus and Echo
Via – wikipedia.com

You may know about the word narcissism and the concept of an echo. But did you know that the root of these words lies in Greek mythology?

Narcissus was a hunter, the son of a sea god and a nymph. His beauty was beyond description- and he knew it. Narcissus was acutely aware of his own stunning looks. He was so proud of it that he treated everyone who admired or loved him with disdain. Nemesis, the goddess of retribution, found this man’s self-obsession to be unbearable. She guided him to a pool, where Narcissus saw his own image and promptly fell in love with it. Losing his will to live, he kept staring at his reflection till he died. And thus comes the origin of the word narcissism, which means a fixation with one’s physical appearance and public perception.

Echo was a mountain nymph employed by Zeus to distract Hera with long conversation so that she did not catch him having affairs. When Hera discovered this, she cursed Echo so that instead of rambling on, all she could speak were the last few words repeated to her. A while later, she came across Narcissus and fell deeply in love with him. But the proud man spurned her advances. Heartbroken, Echo nevertheless continued to love Narcissus. When he eventually died staring at his own reflection, she mourned over his body. Over time, Echo’s physical body faded away. All that remained was her voice, still faithfully repeating whatever was said to her.

Oedipus And the Inevitability of Fate

Oedipus And the Inevitability of Fate
Via – drhanan.com

Sigmund Freud’s Oedipus Complex remains one of the most controversial theories across any academic field. Freud believed that sons go through the period of intense love and sexual longing for their mothers and fear for their fathers during the age of four to six. While the theory was of his own devising, he borrowed the name from a tragic hero of Greek Mythology. This story is also the origin of the famous Sphinx riddle “What goes on four feet in the morning, two feet at noon and three feet in the evening?” Be warned, and the next bit may make you queasy.

A prophecy foretold that the son of the King and Queen Thebes would grow up to kill his father and marry his mother, thus bringing ruin to the city and its people. To prevent this, the king left the baby to die on a mountain. Found by shepherds, the baby was given to the royal couple of Cornith. When he grew up, Oedipus learned about the prophecy.  Thinking his adopted parents to be his birth parents, left them. Making his way to Thebes, he quarreled with an old man on the road and killed him. When he reached his destination, he found it to be under the terror of the Sphinx. He managed to answer his riddle correctly and received the widowed queen’s hand in return. They had four children together.

Of course, the old man he had murdered was his father. A plague descended on the city to avenge the former King’s unfair death, and Oedipus found out that he was the killer whose folly was punishing the city. The Queen, upon realizing that she had married her own son, the murderer of her husband, hanged herself. Taking two pins from her eyes, Oedipus blinded himself in punishment. As grotesque as the tale is, is has been retold time and again with variations across the classical timeline. It is one of the grimmest reminders of the firm belief that the ancient Greeks had about fate.

Stories from Greek mythology are very diverse. Some seek to explain natural phenomena, some detail how the world became what it is now, some attempt to give lessons and warnings, and others seem to be merely entertaining stories. These myths are more than just old stories- they are a testament to a culture, to humanity’s imagination, and perhaps, just maybe, remnants of real stories preserved in popular memory.

In the Mughal period, Akbar’s era was the most prosperous one. Emperor Akbar and Shahjahan are still considered as one of the wealthiest rulers in world history.

Emperor Akbar had a minister named ‘Abul Fazal’ who has mentioned the glory and wisdom of Akbar’s time in his book ‘Aain-e-Akbari’.

Akbar's expenses and offerings
Via – amazonaws.com

Let’s take a look at some of the royal expenses and salary Emperor Akbar offered:

Magnificent Expenditures

Akbar’s total income was nine crore rupees in the year 1595. It was the 39th year of his rule. The total expense of the royal family was 77 lacs rupees. Still, 75 lacs rupees were left in the royal treasure.

According to the book, the average expense of an ordinary person that time was 2 rupees per month. So you can calculate how rich Akbar was.

How much Birbal one of the unique aides was paid:

Birbal was one of Akbar’s ‘Navratnas.’ According to the book ‘Ek Hazari Mansabdaar’ he used to get 8200 (silver) rupees per month, but Birbal was ‘Do Hazari Mansabdaar,’ so he used to get 16,400 rupees per month.

Prince Saleem

Saleem was the successor of Akbar. The person on this post used to get 700 silver coins every day. That means, Saleem received whopping 2.58 lacs every month.

Salary Of Pawns

You will not believe the salary Emperor Akbar offered to the lowest army officers. He used to give away 4000 silver coins every year to them. Women working on higher posts also had good salaries. The salary of workers was comparatively low.

Horses And Elephants

Not only Akbar had the pawns army but also a considerable animal’s army. He had thousands of horses in his stables. In the same way, no expense was too high for him to spend on elephants, as they were precious during the war.

He had more than 5 to 6 thousand well-trained elephants in his army.

Shahjahan’s Glory

According to a report in ‘Sunday Tribune’, Shahjahan’s income got a high heap in 1648. It had reached to 21 crore silver rupees.

Apart from this, Jahangir’s property had 7-ton gold, 1116 ton silver, 300 kg pearl and 50 lack carats of diamonds. That time was the peak of prosperity.

  • Watt was a Scottish inventor and mechanical engineer.
  • His Watt steam engine was an improvement of the Newcomen steam engine.
  • He got interested in the improvement of a steam engine when realized that engine designs wasted a lot of energy by repeatedly cooling and reheating the cylinder.
  • He introduced a design which had a separate condenser, which avoided the waste of energy which eventually improved the efficiency which reduced the cost of steam engines.

The skeleton flower is not just like any other flower. You can easily pass by such a flower without even noticing it, literally! Because, when the raindrops drench the soft, white petals of this flower, they turn transparent!

The flower is found mainly in three regions – the mountains of Japan and China and the Appalachian Mountains in the US. These three places witness three different species – Diphylleia cymosa in the Appalachians, Diphylleia Sinensis in Japan and Diphylleia grayi in China. This flower requires a moist and cold climate to grow.

The skeleton flower is white in color and blooms in late spring. Its leaves are large and shaped like an umbrella. One can quickly point out this perennial plant that produces small groups of cottony-white flowers at the top. They are around 0.4 meters high and up to 1 meter wide. On coming in contact with rainwater, the flowers turn crystal-clear, thereby earning the title – ‘Skeleton Flower’. What is more interesting is that, on drying, the flowers turn white again. (Why not name it the chameleon flower?) After pollination, the flowers turn into blueberries.

How Does This Chameleon Characteristic Come About?

The action of pigments does not guide this hide-and-seek act. The petals of the flower have a loose cell structure. Water droplets stick to the veiny structure, causing increased light reflection. Thus, the flower appears transparent.

Indeed, it is amazing how Mother Nature plays these magical tricks!

Vada Pav is one of the famous snacks in India, especially in Mumbai.

If you are a Mumbaikar, you already know the importance of Vada Pav in your life. Mumbai’s morning starts with a Vada Pav and a cup of tea. From rich to poor, from locals to visitors, everyone is a fan of Vada Pav. It is one of the most popular street food of Mumbai which now has made its place in the whole world. It’s Mumbai’s respective burger. Vada Pav makes a perfect snack to munch on any time of the day be it breakfast, brunch, or evening snack.

And if you too are a big fan of this treat, then you must thank Ashok Vaidya who started this Vada Pav revolution. Now his younger son Narendra is continuing his father’s legacy.

In an interview of Narendra with DNA, he said: “My father set up shop with his father in the 1960s when the Shiv Sena made its presence felt in Mumbai. My father started selling poha and Vadas outside Dadar station, while the neighbouring stall sold omelette pav. One day, my father decided to put the vada between the pav and add some garlic chutney for flavour. The combination was a hit, and the vada pav was born. Incidentally, all this happened before he was married.”

Siddharth Aalambayan which traced his legacy also created a short documentary called Vada Pav Inc, and the movie was selected for the Jio MAMI Mumbai Film Festival.

The director Siddharth said that the motive behind making the movie was that everyone enjoys this snack, no one really knows what gave Ashok Vaidya the idea to put a vada between two pieces of bread.

Baba Vanga – ‘Nostradamus Of The Balkans’!

Prediction, a forecast or a statement about the future which is made by a person based on some facts or evidence but not always. Different predictors use different ways that help them to forecast.

Sometimes you must have heard of the story how some of the military leaders disconcerted by soldiers wiping their nose on the proud uniform of Napoleon. Thus, there were orders that the brass buttons should be sewn on the front of sleeves. There are sources claims that the origin of sleeves buttons was in the 18th century.

Napoleon Uniform
Via – napoleon-series.org

Why they used Brass Buttons?

Commanders ordered these brass buttons to be sewn on the front of the sleeve cuffs of expensive. This was done to make sure that the soldiers and the sailors do not wipe their mouths and noses on their sleeves.
There is a belief that this action was taken in the concern of boys, young recruits, and men. As per sources, the boys cried a lot and used to wipe their tears and nose with sleeves. So the buttons were sewn to make it difficult for them.

Who brought the idea?

At a certain point, the sleeve’s brass button had a remarkable practical function. It can be stated that Frederick the great ruler of Prussia (1740-1786) wanted to see his soldiers lined up in a row neatly decked out in their uniforms. But unfortunately, this site was spoiled due to: the soldiers getting sweat, bleeding, getting dirty and catching diseases.

The idea of Brass Buttons on Napoleon Uniform

As no one could predict what could happen in the field, so the soldiers were not provided the troops with Kleenex with which the soldiers could mop their brows, mouth, etc. Which made them leave no option but to clean their face, eyebrows, etc. with the coat sleeves. After a hard day’s battle, the sleeves would be covered with blemishes and unsightly blots.

Conclusion

Apparently, this was unacceptable, and Frederick was wondering what could be done. And finally, a solution emerged: sewing of brass buttons on the front of coat sleeves. So that every time a soldier tries to wipe his face or nose, his face would scratch by the button.

French Cuffs were invented when Napoleon ordered extra-sleeves so, that soldiers could wipe their nose if excess and then fold the cuff which can hide the snot.

3. Anti-aging properties

Strawberries contain an antioxidant called ellagic acid, which protects the elastic fibres in our skin to prevent sagging.

4. Strawberries keep wrinkles at bay

Vitamin C in strawberries is vital for the production of collagen, which helps to improve skin’s elasticity. Since we lose collagen as we age, eating foods rich in vitamin C result in younger-looking skin.

 5. Boosts memory

The anthocyanins that are present in this fruit boost short-term memory. So those who tend to forget things easily should start eating least 2 servings of strawberries daily.

 6. Strawberries regulate blood pressure

Potassium is one of the key regulators of blood pressure. It helps to reduce inflammation and high blood pressure, and that’s why it has earned the tag of one of the most heart-friendly fruits.

7. Good for weight loss

Strawberries have fewer calories and are also fat-free. Plus this fruit is low in both sodium and sugar. Several compounds in berries pump in blood flow and oxygen in our body, which aids weight loss.

8. Beneficial during pregnancy

Folate Vitamin is recommended for pregnant women and strawberries are an excellent source of it. As per studies, this particular vitamin’s intake is necessary during the early stages of pregnancy.

Holi is a Festival of colors filled with vibrancy and enthusiasm. Water filled buckets, spray gun full of colorful water, and balloons are thrown on Holi. These are few moments which are pretty usual for those who have witnessed the enormous three-day event.

However, this festival is highly anticipated and usually impact with adverse wastage of water and usage of artificial colors, which are extracted from chemicals like Lead Oxide, Copper Sulphate and what not.

Many of our friends on this day plan not to indulge in the physical entice of Holi, but they do have other effective ways to celebrate this auspicious Fest with bliss and safety.

Here’s how you can make this event eclectic yet healthy indelible saga.

EXPLORING THE ARTISTRY OF COLOR MAKING

You can try your hand this time in making your colors which are not even unique but will definitely give a different memoir for this event which is safe yet conventional.

Mixing turmeric with Chana powder or marigold mixed with boiled Tesu flowers will give you yellow, although try soaking pomegranate peels overnight for liquid yellow or maybe slicing a beetroot for countless hours might provide you beautiful pink, similarly, henna can be dried to make orange.

ELEVATING SPIRITS THROUGH MUSIC

Every Holi will definitely feel incomplete without a grooving on the desi Nagada, and dhol beats or dance at a high pitched Dj.

These are the kind of elements which let you feel cherished and might take you on the long jamming session, and you might end up grooving for endless hours because who knows the effect of bhang pakora is when going to break the beats down.

via – blogspot

 

DISCOVERING THE TEMPTING DELICACIES

Holi gives us a chance to savor various delicacies like Dahi Vada, Rava, and Mawa ensemble to make Gujiyas, Pooran Polis, Gulab Jamun and the Bhang Pakoras.

Bhang and its inclusion in every dish is what makes it the special ingredient for the day. You can try your hand at making Gujiyas if you’re an embroil chef of your daily life.

One should at least try his/her hand at making bhang pakora but only if you have enough spirit to trip till the last drop. You may drink Bhang Thandai or make a special dinner for your loved one.

via – ndtvimg

THE ART EFFECT OF THE DAY

If you seriously want to awaken the wandering spirit of your soul, then you should definitely try your hand in Rangoli Making or Mandana (regional name for designs and rangolis)

It will not only release your trapped emotions but will also give you a chance to understand the depth of the designs aligned for a purpose. Another way is trying your hand at Cardmaking and sending it to your closed ones.

Disneyland, known as the Happiest place. Visit Disneyland, and you will see various Disney characters cheering you up. You can play, shake hands and click pictures with Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, Goofy and many more. You experience something that can be cherished for a lifetime. However, many people’s efforts and hard work are involved in making our experience memorable. But the question is that whether those people are satisfied and happy? Like other companies, there are specific rules which are to be followed. Similarly, there were certain norms to be taken up while working in Disney.

Disney Costume
Via – wdpromedia.com

What was so unusual about the working condition?

Until 2001, the employees were not allowed to bring their underpants when they were in their Disney character. Instead, they have issued company jock straps, cycling shorts or tights. The reason behind it was that the regular underpants tend to bunch up and become visible in the costume.The costumes are supposed to be clean. Disney characters are given these outfits daily and, in the end, sent for cleaning.

What were the consequences of wearing Disney Costume?

The workers started complaining about the contracted pubic lice and scabies from Disney-laundered underpants. There were claims by Disney officials that hot water was used to clean the undergarments. However, the laundry was not doing it one of the teamsters complains who portray one of the characters. “The workers are expected to wear underpants underneath their tights and shorts, and garments are immediately laundered after they have been warned. If cast members are not happy with the item, they can turn it back in, and they will be issued another costume. “We just want our cast members to be happy with their costume.” – Justified one of the Disney spokesperson, Rena Callahan. One of the rules of working in Disneyland is to be on your best behavior.

But it’s just the employees who know what they go through. “Things have been passed around. I don’t want to share my tights, and I don’t want to share my underpants”, a stilt walker at the Animal Kingdom said.

The results of the struggle

But after all this struggle new contract provisions were made. After two months of the negotiable table, workers who play Mickey Mouse, Cinderella and much more won an important concession- Clean undergarments. Disney and the teamster union have a tentative agreement to assign workers individual, which they can take home every night to clean themselves instead of relying on Disney laundry.

Wrapping up

Even after these difficulties, there is no competitor of Disney in the world of entertainment. Now, at least it is assured that the workers too are happy and are making the visitors happy.

Soundwave tattoos work on a scientific idea of “soundwaves”. Every sound has its own frequency. If the frequency is played, it will automatically play it’s inhibited sound. Let us get it clear if we record a music of a dog and on the other hand of a baby, both will be recorded on different frequencies. If those recorded sound frequencies are drawn over a paper and read by the frequency readers, what exactly we hear now is the same recorded sound of a baby and a dog we have recorded.

Music came to earth way before we all were born. Egyptians invented flutes in 4000 BCE, which was celebrated as the newborn steps of music in the world. Music has bizarre stories. It was created for entertainment, and later was dispersed in everything and solved out its relevance from most impossible of the things. It marked its importance in science when it was shockingly discovered that music could heal mental problems. Before that, music was widely spread in mythology, when the prayers and chants were accompanied by Indian musical instruments like sitar and harmonium. Music was wheeled by the god gifted musicians who played and gave it a more significant meaning.

Tansen – The Navaratan

Music was wheeled by the god gifted musicians who played and gave it a higher meaning. Well, musicians have their own stories, but few are not just stories but a phenomenon which jumps off the human tendency and give a confusion to the reality. Tansen was a North Indian musician. He spent each day of life practicing music and instruments, later he played his music at Akbar’s court, to gain a wider audience. Akhbar was highly delighted with his music and respected him by awarding the title of “nine jewels” or “Navaratan” of Akhbar’s court.

Why “Tansen is living forever? While another musician just faded away with time?

Deepak Raag

Deepak Raag is a form of vocal cords which are very high in energy and dense in frequency and Tansen practiced it to an extent, that the music became more powerful, resulting in the outer environment to raise the temperature. Once, Tansen gave his performance in the court which made the oil lamps to glow due to increased heat resulting from the high energy of Deepak Raag. People titled it as magic, but if you travel in a more advanced period, this process is proved legible scientifically.

Megh Malhar Raag

Via- Blogspot.in

Megh Malhar Raags are the vocals which are stretched and restful, and they are very smooth which brings calmness to the environment. The music affects environment because, the frequency mixes in the air and perhaps, air contains the warmness and coldness which raises or drops with the type of frequency it is treated with. Tansen fell in fever after singing “Deepak Raag”, since his body temperature also raised with an environment, his daughter sang “Megh Malhar” to calm environment and Tansen’s body. And not to astonishment, it started dropping soon, after when the “Megh Malhar” Raag was sung!

Ramakien means “Glory Of Rama”. It is said that the epic reached Southeast Asia via the Indian traders and scholars who traveled to the empires of Khmer, Java from India. The economic and social ties between the then Bharat and these Southeast empires led to these cultural similarities.

Despite all these similar points, there are many differences between the Indian version of Ramayana and Thailand’s Ramakien! Read out to know more!

The Character of Lord Hanuman

Hanuman is depicted as the Monkey God in both versions. In the Ramayana, he is described as a bachelor and is characterized by his virtuousness and moral perfection. He is seen as the close supporter of Ram but never draws attention to himself. He serves Ram faithfully throughout the epic but is not seen as the main hero of Ramayana.

On the other hand, in the Ramakien version, Hanuman is seen as one of the most important protagonists and is seen to have a more significant role than Ram. He is described as a charming macho who is capable of seducing and attracting women. He is the opposite of being a staunch Bhramachari.

Via Quora

He is seen to have relationships with many women, out which include Vibhishan’s daughter, Raavan’s daughter and his wife Mandodari as well!

Ramakien depicts Hanuman to be the bridge himself who helped the Vanara army cross from India to Lanka. The story describes how he expanded in size and transformed into a human bridge for the army and Ram to cross.

The Character of Sita

Sita, in the Ramayana, is the adopted daughter of Janaka – King of Mithila. According to the Epic, Sita was an abandoned baby found in the field by Janak. Since she was partially in the mud, they had to plow her out of the mud. Thus, the name Sita.

She is also seen as the daughter of the earth. Sita is known for patience, honor and is the most idealistic woman. She is believed to be the reincarnation of Goddess Lakshmi.

Contrary to this version, Nang Sida, the wife of Phra Rama is known as the adopted daughter of Janak just like the original version. But in Ramakien, she is seen as the birth daughter of Thotsakan (Raavan). When Sida was born, Thotsakan’s astrologers predict that she will bring doomsday to Lanka.

Fearing that they might kill his daughter, he abandons her in the forest and since the adoption by Janaka, keeps a close watch on her. On knowing the fact that her beloved is sent to a 14-year banishment with her newlywed husband, Thotsakan kidnaps her and brings her to Lanka.

A parallel version of this story is that Thotsakan fell in love with Sida and kidnaps her. But he does not rape her as he knows that a forceful touch on this chaste woman will burn him alive.

Names of Other Characters

  • Lakshman – Phra Lak – half-brother
  • Bharat – Phra Prot – half-brother
  • Shatrughan – Phra Satrut – half-brother
  • Kaushalya – Nang Kaosuriya – Ram’s mother
  • King Dhashrath – Thotsarot -Ram’s father
  • Kaikeyi – Nang Kaiyakesi – Ram’s stepmother and Bharath’s mother
  • Sumitra – Nang Sammuthevi – Ram’s stepmother and Lakshman and Shatrughan’s mother
  • Kumbakarn – Kumphakan – Raavan’s brother
  •  Indrajith – Inthrachith -Raavan’s son

It is interesting to notice how the names are also very similar to each other. This proves the fact that the world is indeed small and all religions and cultures are in many ways interconnected to each other.

This is the great story of the Ideal Man Ram and Ideal Wife Sita – the 8th avatar of Vishnu and his consort.

Ramakien or Ramayana – the ideals remain the same!

Superman and Batman are heroes of our imagination. But the real heroes that we should look up to are our very own soldiers! They are the guardians of the skies, sea, and land that is legally India’s. They protect us from non-State activities and put their lives at risk to ensure that we sleep in peace. They toil through harsh weather conditions be it rain, snow or heat. This article is the story of a brave Jawaan by the name of Baba Harbhajan Singh, whose sacrifice is worshiped by the people of the Northeastern region of Sikkim.

Story behind Baba Harbhajan Mandir

Baba Harbhajan was born on the 30th of August 1946, at ‘Sadrana’ in the district of Gujranwala of present-day Pakistan. He joined the Punjab regiment of the Indian Army as a sepoy, on the 9th of February 1966. Harbhajan Singh served the 23 Punjab Regiment in East Sikkim. During his time of service, he carried ammunition and weapon supplies to one of the remote check posts in Nathu La pass. During this escort, he drowned in a glacier. His dead remains were found after a three-day search, which was helped by Harbhajan Singh himself who came in the dream of his colleague. It is believed that he also told his colleague to construct a temple for him and lay his body there.
Another parallel version to this story is that out of sheer respect and for his sacrifice, and to honor his death which happened during the 1965 Sino-India war in the Nathu La pass that occurred between the Indian Army and the PLA. Localities of the region buried his body and constructed a temple so that his soul would protect them and remain there. They feel that his soul protects them from all evil and mishaps. Stories about how Baba has saved people from danger can be heard in abundance from the people of Kupup.

Mystery of Baba Harbhajan Mandir

From then on to present times, soldiers irrespective of religion, caste and creed come to the temple to pay their respects and pray for their security. It is said that when a bottle of water is kept at this temple and later consumed by an ailing person cures him/her. Devotees place bottles of water close to his shrine with the name of the ailing person written on it. The water must be consumed by the family of the sick person for 21 days, and they must not have alcohol or non-vegetarian food for this period.

In a country where religion dominates the social structure, where the belief held in the unseen God is unbreakable, there exists a place where the people worship a person in the realm of reality, a person of flesh and blood for his sacrifice and great deed.

Personally, after being to these places, my respect for not only Baba Harbhajan Singh, but for every soldier in these rough terrains where even the basic need of oxygen is a scarcity, who protect our borders day in and day out has increased tremendously.

Disneyland is a world’s wonder! The destination is a homeland for cartoons and fairy tales which is also a dreamland for everyone, even the old aged. Disneyland started on 17 July 1955 and ran successfully over these 62 years. Disneyland is an extraordinary human experience, its artificial intelligence rides, concepts and aesthetic is incomparable. The theme park has loads of money invested in its six domestic parks and also earns US$6.2million per day per park!

This all symbolizes the vastness and fame associated with Disneyland. But, there are facts and two faces behind everything.

The rumors of “real skeleton” showcase for decor purpose was waving all over the social media and internet, Walt Disney thought that the plastic skeleton would give an artificial look to the real ride experience was also the saying which went around. This what really happened when managers and cast members asked this:

“Yes, those are the real ones, and we had three in the beginning but now just left with one,” said a cast member.

The skeletons were provided by UCLA medical center, although the real skeletons are replaced when technology made a better version of artificial skeleton familiarizes original ones.

Disneyland has few parks and rides which were closed for reasons never told.

The Major Issues

Global Warming, one of the major problems staring at and daring the humans in the 21st century. It is needless to say that we are burning down our planet. With increasing industrialization and urbanization, that day is not far when children would be taught about trees in their history classes.

Another disgusting issue, in the garb of superstitions, rituals, and beliefs, is prevalent in several countries across the globe – female foeticide. Though necessary steps have been taken to curb this menace, some places still consider girls to be burdens on their parents. Even India is battling against this cause of worry. In such a scenario, the place in Rajasthan, Piplantri Village deserves not only special mention but also some reverence for the rest.

Piplantri – A Different Village

Piplantri is a small village in the western state of Rajasthan. As we know, Rajasthan is one of the driest states in India, with frequent droughts and dry spells. Scanty vegetation is a characteristic of this region. But if you visit the Piplantri village, the scene is entirely different. Lush green vegetation surrounds this magical village. And, no magician is responsible for this magic. The credit goes to the eco-friendly villagers of Piplantri.

The Unique Tradition

Every time a girl child is born in this village, all the villagers gather to celebrate a unique tradition. They together plant 111 trees in the name of that baby girl. The parents sign an affidavit pledging to provide formal education to their daughter and not marry her off before she is 18-years-old. They also ensure the proper nurturing of the newly planted trees. The villagers contribute Rs. 21,000 and the parents give Rs. 10,000 to be deposited in a bank for the girl’s requirements.

Via – ep00.epimg.net

This eco-feminist idea is the brainchild of a former village head, Shyam Sundar Paliwal, who lost his daughter when she was very young. He started this initiative in memory of his beloved daughter. Since then, the village has not looked back. Mother Nature is aptly rewarding this noble thought. Over the years, the trees planted, like Neem, Pipal, Sheesham and Aloe Vera, have been of great economic value to the villagers. Also, deforestation and alcohol are banned in this village. Furthermore, this village has its own brand and also has an official website!

The Piplantri village is a living example of ‘Where there’s a will, there’s a way.’ Hats off to Mr. Paliwal who transformed his sorrow into his strength. And this power of his has strengthened an entire village. We need more village heads like him!

Crime novels, suspense, and thrillers have always been my personal favorites. Be it the Queen of Crime, Agatha Christie, or the likes of David Baldacci and Gillian Flynn, and I love gorging on every novel of theirs. It is needless to say that a lot of research, thought and endless amount of hard work goes into every thriller. But one crime novelist had the task easily cut out for him. He could just base his novels on real-life murders – murders that he committed!

The Murderer Turned Crime Novelist

Via – assets.nydailynews.com

Liu Yongbiao is a 53-year-old Chinese crime novelist. In fact, he is a murderer turned crime novelist. His novel, ‘The Guilty Secret,’ published in 2010, was a bestseller and he was working on his next novel, ‘The Beautiful Writer Who Killed.’ Yongbiao’s collection of stories, ‘A Film,’ earned him the Anhui Literature Prize. He was also a member of the China Writers’ Association. One of his romantic novels was also adapted into a TV series.

In the preface to ‘The Guilty Secret,’ Liu wrote that he would write a novel in which the murderer gets away with murder. His alleged sources of inspiration were “some crime novels” and “crime shows and movies.”

The Place Of The Crime And Evidence

On 29th November 1995, Liu Yongbiao was directly involved in the heinous murder of four people, including a 13-year-old! The killings took place in a guesthouse in the Zhejiang city of Huzhou. The hotel staff discovered the massacre early in the morning of that cold November day. The victims were identified as the couple who owned the hotel, their 13-year-old grandson and a guest from Shandong, Mr. Yu. Two Anhui locals became instant suspects, who had boarded the inn the night before.

Via – cdn-s-www.dna.fr

The police collected several pieces of evidence from the crime scene, namely, some used towels, shoe prints, fingerprints and a cigarette butt of an Anhui-based brand. After 22 years of intense detective work in 15 cities and thanks to improved DNA technology, the crime department was able to zero in on this crime novelist and his partner in crime, Wang Ming. This is the police’s version of what occurred on that gruesome night:

The Brutal Murders

Liu and Wang had planned to rob the guests in the guesthouse. But the robbery went wrong, and they ended up murdering another guest. The owners of the inn and their grandson had witnessed the crime. So, the criminals murdered them with heavy blows from a blunt object.

It is believed that when the police arrived on Liu’s doorstep to arrest him, he said, “I have been waiting for you here this entire time.” Liu has confessed his crime in a letter to his wife. He wrote, “Now I can finally be free from the mental torment I have endured for so long.”

I always thought some writers write to live and some who live to write. Now, I suppose there is a third kind, those who kill to write!

P.S. If you are a wannabe crime novelist, DO NOT commit misdeed to gain inspiration for your novel!

Why do people near Nidhivan have permanently blocked their windows with bricks? What is the reason behind the curfew that takes over after the evening Aarti? Vrindavan is one amongst the holiest grounds in India. Moreover, what makes it entirely famous is the Mysteries of Nidhivan. Let’s take you to a ride of unfurling these mind-boggling mysteries.

1. What Mystery?

The land is dedicated to the divine duo of Lord Krishna and Radhaji whose love has touched the purest form. It is believed that the pair engulfs itself into Rasleela in the laps of the night.

The holy garden is a home to a small palace. Here, on a daily basis, a sandalwood bed is prepared for Lord Krishna. Beside this bed are kept pan leaves, a silver glass of water and Prasad. Furthermore, Makeup items for Radha Ji are also kept. To your astonishment, when the doors of the Mahal are opened in the morning, the priest finds an empty glass of water, pan leftovers and bed in a condition as if someone had slept in it.

B) Extraordinary shape of Trees and Tulsi

Usually, following the laws of nature, the branches of the trees tend to grow upwards. The uniqueness of trees over here is that their branches grow downwards. Moreover, the Tulsi grows in a pair. According to the locals, these turn into the Gopis during the night time. The divine dance takes place between Lord Krishna, Radhaji, and the Gopis. These plants resume to their original self as the dawn takes over.

3. Vacant garden after the evening Aarti

People are warned against staying in the holy garden after the evening aarti. Also, when it gets darker, people living nearby start restricting themselves from looking outside. Furthermore, it seems that Lord Krishna wants his Rasleela to be a secret as anyone who has ever tried to catch a glimpse of the supernatural happening has either lost his eyesight, mental balance or capability to speak.

The wedding is that mesmerizing moment of life which changes everything. But for a bride, it is more than just a life-changing moment. Especially, when it comes to her outfit, a perfect wedding dress is a dream for every bride to be. But have you ever considered why more than half of the bride around the world wear the white wedding dress? After the marriage of Queen Victoria, the white color became vital in the wedding dress.

history behind white wedding dress
Via – cdn.vox-cdn.com

Under the rule of Queen Victoria, there were tremendous changes that are still followed from history to present. One such tradition started by Queen Victoria was the western wedding dress. On her marriage to Prince Albert in 1840, she chose to wear a white wedding dress. This wedding dress brought a storm of new wedding fashion in England.

Queen’s choice to wear a white dress

Queen Victoria was proud of the country and, therefore, represented her Englishness in her outfit. The beautiful gown was made of white satin and white lace. The white cloth, as well as, the lace were both handcrafted by British. She used both in her dress to represent her English love. Apart from this, white color was also the sign of luxury and aristocracy.

Until the Queen used white color, there was an entirely contrasting belief for “white”. Before 1840, white color was considered as inappropriate no matter what status the family had in society. White was considered the color of impracticality when used in the wedding. Before the color was used in wedding, brides use to wear more “practical” colors. Usually, red was the standard color to be worn. Apart from it, wedding dress would include blue, black, yellow and other such colors with brocade work.

Christmas is hands down the favorite festival of all and sundry, all over the world! No matter where you live or which religion you belong to, you CANNOT escape the joy and ecstasy the spirit of Christmas fills you with. We all have our own Christmas traditions bequeathed to us by our ancestors. Here are a few unique (and at times, absurdly weird) traditions observed around the world. A Christmas gift to you all from Procaffenation! I’m sure Yule love them!

The Pooping El Caganer – Catalan, Spain

The Nativity scene, one of the most celebrated Christmas decorations. The baby Jesus in the beautiful manger, protected and loved by Mother Mary and Joseph, and flanked by sheep and the Magi is such a pristine symbol of togetherness. But the Catalans also include something else in their Nativity scene – a pooping man, El Caganer.

Pooping El Caganer Catalan Spain
Via – spanish-trails.com

The Caganer is shown wearing a red Catalan hat, a white shirt and black trousers pulled down to his ankles! Also, he is pooping! He is usually hidden behind a tree outside the manger. People believe that the Caganer symbolizes fertility and is included in the Nativity scene to bring good luck and a plentiful harvest in the coming year. Swacch Catalan Abhiyaan, anyone?

Pickle-hiding – Germany

You must have heard about parents hiding Christmas presents for their children. But hiding pickles? The Germans hide an ornamental glass pickle among the Christmas decorations before the children wake up on Christmas Day. The one who finds the predicament gets to unwrap a special gift and is also said to be blessed with good fortune. The following story is believed to be the origin of this tradition:

John Lower was a Bavarian soldier who was held at Andersonville Prison during the Civil War. The conditions were so severe that he was dying of starvation. On Christmas Eve, the guard felt sorry for him and gave him a pickle to eat. Like a miracle, that pickle saved Lower from dying. When he returned home and narrated the incident to his family, they decided to hide a pickle in the Christmas Tree to remember the blessing of God.

Shoe-Tossing – Czech Republic

One must have heard about bouquet tossing at Christian weddings. The lady who catches the bouquet gets to become a bride soon. Now, shoe-tossing is a similar sort of a tradition observed by unmarried girls in the Czech Republic during Christmas. The girl stands with her back to a door, usually the kitchen door, and throws a shoe over her shoulder, towards the door. On landing, if the toe of the shoe points towards the door, the girl would find a suitable groom within a year. So, this is something all-girls-dying-to-get-married should try this Christmas. And others, you might use this tactic to hit your enemy with a shoe!

Spider Web Decorations – Ukraine

In Ukraine, people have replaced stars and bells with spiders and spider webs as Christmas decorations (Plastic ones, silly!) This is said to bring them good luck and a prosperous New Year. The origin of this tradition is somewhat like this:

A poor woman brought a tree from the woods for her children, a day before Christmas. However, they did not have the money to buy the decorations, and they went to bed, weeping. The spiders in the house felt sorry for them and decorated the tree with webs. On Christmas morning, the rays of the sun made the webs glisten like gold and silver! And this is why the spider symbolizes good fortune in Ukraine.

Hiding The Brooms – Norway

Now all Harry Potter fans would easily connect with this tradition. The Norwegians believe that witches visit their homes on Christmas Eve and steal their broomsticks to ride. Then they visit more houses and create mischief. Thus, on Christmas Eve, people hide their broomsticks so that the witches are not able to spread mischief! (Well, had I been in their place, I would have greeted the witch with a Nimbus 2000 instead!)

The Victorian era, which is known for its puritanical actuality, was responsible for bias prejudice. This unfairness again sex was not only perceived in society but even outside it. Beaches of that period give a perfect instance for this restraint over female modesty. To regain female modesty on the beach, an invention of Bathing Machine took place.

What is Bathing Machine?

The bathing machine can simply be described as a small wooden or canvas room. Servants to the beach carried this wooden box and were used by women as changing room. It was invented to help women play freely in water while the machine covered them. It uses to have two gates on both the side. These gates would help women to move in from one side and move to the sea from another entrance. Bathing Machine was invented by Benjamin Beale allowing women to change their clothes in the carriage.

Why These Machines?

While it was the period of strict rules, there were no restrictions on men outfit at the beach. Where men used to be naked on the beach, women were not allowed to wear swimsuits while bathing with men. Slowly, a rule was issued which restrict bathing of both the genders together. Bathing Machine was an invention for women to make them enjoy coast while men being away on few miles distance.

Types of Bathing Machine

Designed uniquely for women, the bathing machine uses to come in different shapes and sizes. There were ordinary bathing machines which just include a small wooden room with necessary toiletries. Apart from it, there was beautiful and luxury bathing machine for aristocratic women. These include stunning wallpaper, gorgeous floor, and walls decorated with ribbons. Apart from this, there were pegs for towel and lockers for soaps, perfumes, etc.

Even the invention of the bathing machine took place to regain women modesty, and it had a significant influence on our present. However, the bathing machine became extinct at the beginning of 20th century, and the effect can still be seen. Nowadays, bathing huts work as a substitution for bathing machines which we come across at most of the beaches around the world. Afterall, it was all about the inventions people have endeavored to deal with the society.

I do not remember who my first love was, but I do remember that my love for coffee has always been true and pure. So this article is for all the coffee lovers out there! Grab a cuppa and read on.

Procaffenation is the tendency of not starting anything before having a cup of coffee. Similarly, decaffeination is the removal of caffeine from coffee beans, tea leaves, and other caffeine-containing substances. But then if you remove the caffeine from coffee, why drink that coffee at all?

Why Drink Decaf Coffee?

drink decaf coffee
Via – i2.wp.com

Well, the answer is simple. People who love the taste of coffee but are sensitive to caffeine prefer decaf coffee. Furthermore, the long-term effect of regular coffee includes lower-energy level, depression, and increased anxiety. Also, decaf coffee helps us reduce our dependence on, or, addiction to coffee on a daily basis. It reduces the risk of miscarriages, liver problems, and diabetes.

What Are The Cons Of Decaf Coffee?

Since there is no caffeine in decaf coffee, your drowsiness and laziness will not be removed by drinking this coffee. Studies have also concluded that decaf coffee may increase acidity, cholesterol, heartburn and lead to arthritis.

But these are just some of its ill-effects on human beings. Does decaf coffee affect the environment as well? Let me make it easier for you. Does it kill the ozone layer?

Decaf Coffee Is Harmful To The Ozone Layer

There are several methods of decaffeination of coffee. The first such process was invented by Ludwig Roselius, way back in 1905. He used benzene to remove caffeine from moistened coffee beans. But later it was realized that benzene is toxic. Hence, this method was done away with.

After that, dichloromethane or methylene chloride started being used as a decaffeinating agent. Caffeine is readily soluble in this organic solvent. However, scientists declared dichloromethane as a carcinogen (a substance that promotes the formation of cancer). Dichloromethane is still used to make decaf coffee. But, the amount of solvent used was regulated.

Via – i0.wp.com

Now, researchers of Lancaster University, UK, have discovered that dichloromethane (also used as a paint thinner) is releasing chlorine into the atmosphere which in turn is depleting the ozone layer. It has a short lifetime and hence has not been checked by the Montreal Protocol. It is believed that if the scenario does not alter, there will be a delay of five years in the ozone hole recovery. If not controlled now, the amount of chlorine may rise to dangerous levels by 2050.

The fascination towards memes on all the social media platforms by the youth is increasing by heaps and bounds. You all have come across the enormous craze of memes while scrolling your Facebook, Twitter or Instagram walls.

So what are memes?

Historically, the “meme” word was initially introduced in 1976 by Richard Dawkins. “Meme” comes from the Greek word ‘mimema’ meaning “something imitated”.

According to Prof Mike Watson, in this 21st century,

“Memes are an image, video, piece of text, etc., typically humorous in nature, that is copied and spread rapidly by Internet users, often with slight variations”

It’s hard to believe that you missed noticing those but to be precise, it can a parody, or a funny image with a catchphrase added on it, to make it more relatable or funny.

Such basic pictures with such a huge impact? Let’s find out why!

what are memes

Via: www.funniestmemes.com

The primary objective of a meme is to find the right image for the text and make it amusing as well as witty. You’ll be shocked to know that in last two years, memes have surpassed Jesus in context with online popularity.

Comic And Creative! How?

The reasons contributing to the popularity include that anyone can create memes easily. Another reason why memes spread like crazy across the globe is that it is exceptionally connective. It is difficult to capture reader’s attention these days and thus memes, in 4 seconds bangs on with their job. And who doesn’t like to laugh at silly things? From your favorite TV show to your favorite movie poster, memes got no mercy.

Memes are even used to spread social awareness, recently Nagpur police tweeted a famous Irfan Khan meme, on the importance of education for the girl child.

why memes

Via; www.twitter.com

No one can disagree with the fact that image catches more attention than text, and sometimes they may be humorous or scandalous, and this makes them inevitable. Memes are easily shareable, and you can find people who belong to your interest domain.

So you, social animal, find it right or not, accept it or not, these say-less-but-say-it-all memes are hilarious and will be ruling your timelines for sure.

The Rupee that we use today- the rupee that just went through the turmoil of demonetization and a cleansing process, the rupee with a smiling face of Mahatma Gandhi on it has seen several changes throughout history. How many of us know the fact that the Indian civilization was amongst the few cultures along with Chinese and Greek civilizations to use the market for money as a facilitator for trade? Ancient India has been the earliest civilizations to issue coins in the world. Let us understand the metamorphosis of the currency we use today!
The earliest and primary references to the existence of coins and currency favored in the Vedas written by the sages. Words like ‘Niksha’ and ‘Niksha – Griva’ trace it to the presence of this money. Proof of currency is also found in the Arthashastra – the book written by Chanakya and have been seen to be used in many kingdoms like Gandhara, Panchala, Surasena, Saurashtra, Kuntala, and Kuru. Let us understand the timeline of events about how the transformation of small silver and copper coins became the purple 2000 Rs note that we use today!

6th Century BCE

The emergence of several small states within the region of Bharath occurred and each state-issued coins with a different pattern branded on the little silver, copper and lead-based coins – irregular in shape. These coins were known as Punch-marked coins and did not show much artistry in them. For example, Saurashtrian based currencies had a humped bull, and Panchala found coins had the swastika.

6th century bce
Via: Ragjor

The first half of the 6th century also saw the technique of engraving on coins from the influence of Indo-Greek Kushan kings. Greek rulers engraved portraits on the coins. One side of the coin had the ruler’s picture, and the other side had the image of the god favored by the ruler. Honour was the same time coins in gold, silver and lead were issued in the Gupta Dynasty- also known as the Golden Period in the history of Indian Monarchy. But with the fall of the Gupta Dynasty, there was a fall in the usage of coins.

11th – 12th Century

During this period, the Turks invasion happened. With the Tughluk rule in northern India, trade flourished and so did coin and token currency. But the culture of engraving portraits died during this period since Islam did not believe in idolatry. But the plan of currency notes failed miserably when the value of it fell due to the minting of illegal currency notes and forgery by his subjects.

16th century onwards: the Mughal entered into the picture during the 16th-17th century and the coins issued during this period closely resembled the ones released in other Central Asian Dynasties. Sher Shah, a practical yet short-lived ruler, brought in the silver coin which weighed 178gms, and its value could be divided into 40 copper pieces or paisa.

1717 AD – Rise of Currency

1717 AD saw the rise of British coins and currency. The British obtained prior permission from the Mughal ruler before they started minting currency coins. The British gold coins were called Carolina, the silver ones were called Angelina, copper ones were called Cupperoon, and the tin ones were called Tinny.

The British were also the first to introduce paper money in India, in the 18th century. The Bank of Hindostan, Bank of Bengal and the General Bank were the first banks in India to issue currency notes to the public. The 250 Rs note (Sicca) is the oldest surviving note till date. It was dated 3rd September 1812.

Effect of 1857 Revolt – Rupee

After the 1857 revolt, the British officialized the Rupee to be India’s currency. The portrait of King George VI replaced all native designs on the currency notes. This was then replaced by Queen Victoria’s picture in her honor. It later changed through the ages as many other officials rose to higher positions in the government.

Via _The Better India_

Post-1947

After independence in 1947, the newly formed Indian government issued notes with the national emblem taking over the previous British Portraits. The first note to be released was the 1 Rupee note. The coins also differed in shape and were no longer a perfectly round shape so that it would aid the blind in identifying coins.

In 1959, the Indian government issued 10 rupee and 1000 rupee notes to help the Indian Muslims on their Hajj pilgrimage to make an exchange of currencies more natural for them in Saudi Arabia.

Later, in 1969 with the commencement of the Mahatma Gandhi Birth Centenary Commemorative issue was released. This was the first and the only commemorative note issued by the Reserve Bank of India. And from then on, the smiling face of Gandhi on the Indian currency became permanent out of respect for the father of our nation.
This is the age-old history of the currency note and coin that we use today on a day to day basis. The currency has seen a lot of changes and will metamorphose more in the future as well. With a Bye-bye to the old 500 Rs and 1000 Rs note and a warm welcome to the 2000 Rs note, the shape and the type of money might change, but the value for it in our developing country will never change.

India is famous for its rich heritage and culture. The beauty of age-old archaic temples remains intact. Not only are the temples magnificent from the outside but the rich story and backdrop work that went behind these temples is equally astonishing to listen to!

This blog is NOT to bring out the spirituality in you but to show you some of India’s most beautiful architecture that is a treat for the eye! So readers, if you are in a locality distantly or even remotely close to any of these wonders, go and admire its beautiful architecture!

1. Konark Sun Temple

A notable marvel in the state of Orissa, the Sun temple is a living masterpiece of the Kalinga Age. The sun temple is known for the beautiful architecture which is sculpted as a huge chariot drawn by seven horses to pay tribute to the sun god. And it is not the idol that makes this place so beautiful. It is the exact angle at which the sun rays penetrate the temple that adds on to the marvel of this construction. The temple is also known for its sculptures that talk about the history of the age in which it was constructed. Talks about wonders of Egypt but not been here yet? Go quickly!

2. Beemapally Mosque

This majestic mosque is well known in the Kerala capital, Trivandrum. History says that Cheraman Perumal went on a pilgrimage to Arabia and met Prophet Muhammed at Jeddah. He converted to Islam and was called Thajuddin from then on. He married the princess of Arabia and settled in Arabia.

Before he passed away, he handed over several letters to the King of Jeddah to be sent to the rulers of Kerala to accept Islam. Later on, after his death, the King of Jeddah traveled to Kerala and altered Arathali Temple (Famous Hindu temple in Kerala) into a Juma Masjid.

The beauty of this mosque lies in the Hindu architecture that can be found. This is the second mosque in the world and first in India to offer Juma prayers. Unity in diversity is not just a catchphrase in India. We prove it to you in every instance possible!

3. Our Lady of Ransom Church

Everyone knows about the St. Basilica church of Goa! But how many of us know about one of the oldest churches in the entire south of India at Kanyakumari? This beautiful church was once a thatched place of worship and then was renovated into a Roman architecture church in the 1700 A.D.

5. Tanjore Temple

The “Tanjavur Peria Kovil” in the city of Tanjore – the rice belt of South India is one of the most magnificent and grand temple of all times. The temple is also known as the RajaRajeshwar Kovil, dedicated to Lord Brihadeeshwara (Lord Shiva).

The temple is an exemplary work of Dravidian architecture and was constructed in the Chola Period by Raja Rajan Chozhan. The temple tower stands at 60-meter length and is one of the tallest in the world. The Nandi (sacred Bull) is carved out of a single stone measuring 16ft in diameter and 14ft in breadth. The stories of how this massive temple was built are a story in itself.

Those were the times when kings built such massive structures to flaunt their power and to etch a mark in history. It took several years, several thousand elephants, and several million artisans to finish this masterpiece and pure to its word and objective, has left a big footprint in history!

So readers, places of worship are mostly sought to find inner peace and solutions to problems that ache the heart. But there is more to these sites than the supposedly said spirituality. To observe the beauty of these massive structures is something different and a bigger experience in itself.

If there are other places which you feel are equally beautiful and archaic, type it down in the comment section for others to know about it! It is not just the beauty of these places that count, stories of these massive structures and its reminiscence are what keeps the memory of these sites intact.

1. Automatic Belts in Vintage Cars

George Cayley tossed the idea of seat belts in cars. He invented the seat belts which were further introduced in the automobile industry. If we ran back in the 18th century, we would end up studying vintage automobiles having “automatic seatbelts”. These seat belts were attached from the car door to the other end of the seat, and they were non-adjustable. The seat belts were auto-removed when the door opened, and auto fixed when the car door is shut. Removing seat belts while sitting in the car was not an option for the driver because it would only be removed if the driver gets out. Such strict safety feature prevailed because the cars lacked other safety features like airbags and emergency horn. Later, in the 19th century, these seat belts resulted in injuries. Their automation did not fit the people who were very tall or too short. Later, the government made the airbags compulsory, which made these seat belts run out of trend.

2. AMC Pacer

AMC pacer was manufactured by American Motors Corporation (AMC). The car is famous for it’s built. The car’s passenger door was four inches longer than the driver’s door. The car named itself into the small category, and it is wider than it is tall. The wideness of the car gave it a room, and this also made the car to look like a spaceship. Despite its wired look, the press and car freaks loved the car because of its compact look but spacious interior. Magazines flourished the news of the new launch of AMC Pacer. The pacer was also famous as “the first wide small car.”

3. Plymouth Barracuda

The rear window of Barracuda is estimated to be the largest glass ever used for cars, the size of its glass is even more significant than its bonnet. The glass piece was measured to be 14.4 square feet. Car expert says that the model did not run for a long time because every ordinary man won’t like an abnormal car window. The model was only available from 1964 to 1974.

4. The Studebaker cars

Via: Youtube.com

Studebaker was an American car producer, the company was found in the 18th century. Studebaker cars spread a fan wave in America, and then the sales suddenly fell. Studebaker incurred a high loss and sold its manufacturing equipment to other manufacturers. The market dropped in surprise when Studebaker continued to manufacture even after the company was shut down. Other owners produced these cars which kept on selling after decades of the Studebaker shut down.

You would never meet these cars running on the roads now, and some vehicles make people’s jaw drop and demand fly up in the market, others turned to be unlucky and disappeared in no days.

Our Love For Mythology And Sports

India is a country that takes pride particularly in two things – mythology and sports. The biggest proof of our love for religion being the longest epic in the world, our very own, the Mahabharata. Sports, because we have excelled not only in our games but also in those gifted to us by others. So what is so intriguing about this article is that it is a mixture of both our loves!

Kabaddi is a game that is known by different names in different sections of India – from ha-du-du to kauddi to hu-tutu to chedu-gudu. There has always been a debate as to where this game of mind and strength originated. The Iranians firmly believe that this game was born in the southeastern Province of Sistan, Iran. On the other hand, the southern state of Tamil Nadu claims that it is the cradle of this favorite sport. Or, is it Haryana, the hub of Kabaddi in India?

The Inspiration For The Game ‘Kabaddi’

Well, the debate will continue for an uncountable number of years. However, there is sufficient evidence that Kabaddi is more than 4,000 years old. The most popular theory prevalent in the sporting world regarding the origin of this game is as follows:

Abhimanyu, the valiant son of Arjuna in the Mahabharata, is assumed to have inspired this fast-paced sport. The Mahabharata states that when Abhimanyu was in his mother Subhadra’s womb, Krishna narrated the technique of penetrating the Chakravyuha to Subhadra (the Chakravyuha is a seven-tiered wall of defense used in war). Although his mother fell asleep midway through the narration, Abhimanyu was all-ears within the womb. When Krishna realized that the lady is sleeping, he stopped speaking. Thus, Abhimanyu could only learn how to enter the Chakravyuha and not how to come out of it. Also, Abhimanyu was able to retain this technique even when he grew up to be a young lad.

During the Kurukshetra War, Abhimanyu could penetrate the Chakravyuha to fight the enemy. But he could not come out and be eventually killed. It is believed that Kabaddi was started in memory of the sacrifice made by this valiant, young warrior. In Kabaddi, a raider has to face seven defenders, just like the seven-tiered defensive wall of the Chakravyuha. If the invader touches one of the opponents and returns, he earns a point, and if he gets caught, he is out.

Other Theories

Other theories proclaim that Kabaddi is being played in India since time immemorial. Buddhist scriptures tell us that Gautama Buddha played this game for recreation. Others believe that the game originated in Tamil Nadu when a boy hit another and ran away with his candy. The other boy chased him and hit him back. The game evolved from here. The term Kabaddi is said to have been derived from the Tamil word ‘kai-pidi’ which means ‘to hold hands.’ The seven defenders hold hands, in twos, to tackle the raiders.

Story of Shani Shingnapur

Shani Shingnapur is a small village in the district of Ahmednagar, in the state of Maharashtra. It’s hard to believe that even in this era when crime rates are increasing day by day, the houses in this village have no doors or locks.
The story as passed on from generation to generation says that many years ago, probably since the beginning of Kalyug (Age of downfall), the deity, Lord Shani self-emerged from the earth in the form of an imposing black stone. A group of shepherds found it. When one of them touched the rock with a pointed rod, the stone started bleeding. Word of this soon spread to the entire village, and everyone gathered around to see the miracle.

That very night, Lord Shani appeared in the dream of the most devoted shepherd in the village and told him that the black stone was his swayambhu form. When the shepherd offered to build a temple, Lord Shani declined to say the whole sky was his roof. He instructed the shepherd to do a pooja every day and Tailabhishek on Saturdays. He promised him that from now on he was going to protect the village and there would be no fear of thieves or dacoits.

Till date, this statue of Lord Shani, a five and a half feet high black rock is seen in the open yard without any roof. It is said that the temple is a ‘Jagrut Devasthan’ (alive temple) which means that the deity resides in the temple and protects the village and its people from burglars. To this day, most houses do not have doors. It is said that whoever attempts to steal, faces a horrible fate, like a long, painful physical illness or a mental illness, accidents, or something terrible happens to his family.

It is also said that in case of snakebite, the male member of the family, dressed in white, should do a pooja and pour water on the idol. This water is then given to the victim to drink who supposedly recovers within in a few minutes.
This temple gets thousands of visitors daily, more on Saturdays, Saturday being the favorite day of Lord Shani.

United Commercial Bank opened its first lockless branch in this village, taking the adequate precaution of course.

Changes in the last few years

Since the beginning, women were not allowed in the inner sanctum of the temple, but now according to the judgment passed by the Bombay high court, women are allowed.

A few cases of theft were reported in 2010-2011, making the people a little apprehensive. Some people started installing doors to their houses, but many people still believe in the power of Lord Shani and keep their homes open.
As times change, so do beliefs. As the literacy rate goes up, there is no room for blind faith. But still, there are people who have complete faith in Lord Shani, probably because they themselves have experienced his greatness.

Guess you have to see a miracle to believe it!

Bermuda Grass, also known as Cynodon Dactylon (Durva Grass) is just known as lawn grass to a lot of people. Not many of the people are aware of the health benefits that this herb possesses. This is a grass that is associated with Lord Ganesha.

Legend has it that there was a demon by the name Analasura whose name means a Fire Breathing Orge. Analasura created chaos in the world of Devas. Unable to bear his torments, the Devas sought help from the Elephant God – Lord Ganesha.

During the fight, Ganesha got so angry that he swallowed Analasura. Since he was the Fire-breathing Orge, he created a burning sensation inside Ganesha. Lord Ganesha faced an unbearable pain because of this. To relieve him of this burning sensation, Sage Kashyapa gave him the juice of Bermuda grass, which cured the burning sensation.

Since then on, Lord Ganesha has been firmly attributed with this grass.

There is a medical disorder in which involuntary control over breathing is impaired and voluntary control is intact. Meaning, when the person is awake, voluntary control will take care of breathing, but when the person falls asleep, the involuntary control being impaired, the person stops breathing. This is termed as sleep apnoea or Central Hypoventilation Syndrome. It can be congenital, meaning a baby could be born with it or it can be acquired later in life due to some brain injury. In normal people, increased carbon dioxide and decreased oxygen are the two main stimuli that increase the rate of breathing. But in these people, this response is impaired. Lifetime ventilation is the main treatment. Oxygen therapy and medicines to stimulate the respiratory system have also been tried. Another option is tracheostomy which literally means making a hole in the neck and inserting a tube to assist respiration. If untreated, it can be fatal.

Central Hypoventilation Syndrome
Via- Pinterest

Ondine’s Curse Tale

This disorder got its roots in the French and German mythology. Lots of plays, operas, and ballets have been based on this myth. There was a nymph named Ondine, who was breathtakingly beautiful. A nymph is a mythological spirit of nature imagined as a beautiful maiden inhabiting rivers, woods, etc. Her gaze fell upon a handsome young man named Palemon, who was out on one of his daily walks. He so smote her that she began to look out for him every day. When Palemon saw her, he was taken by her beauty and tried his best to get a glimpse of her. They talked, fell in love and eventually got married after he broke his engagement with the young noblewoman Bertha. On their wedding day, he vowed: “ My every waking breath shall be my pledge of love and faithfulness to you.”
Ondine gave birth to their son. Once a nymph falls in love and gives birth, she begins to age and loses her eternal youthfulness. Seeing her beauty fade away, Palemon cheated on her with his first love Bertha. One fine day Ondine caught them. Filled with rage, Ondine cursed him saying, “You pledged faithfulness to me with your every waking breath which I accepted. For as long as you are awake, you shall breathe, but as soon as you fall asleep, that breath shall desert you.”

Autobiographies have always played an essential role in inspiring the masses. A person’s experiences, when jotted down in ink, can mold somebody else’s life. If not, then at least we get to understand the unsaid feelings of the individual, in his own words.

In my hunt for the first-ever autobiography, I stumbled upon this…

The First Western Autobiography

The Confessions of St. Augustine, or simply, Confessions, is considered to be the first-ever Western autobiography ever written. Consisting of 13 books, St. Augustine of Hippo wrote this between AD 397 and 398. The language was Latin.

St. Augustine tries to emphasize the importance of God in one’s life. He reflects on his personal experiences as a sinner in his early days and how he turned towards salvation. Though Augustine was just in his 40s when he wrote this book, Confessions gives us ample reason to be seen as the first-ever Western autobiography.

Summary

Here is a summary of its contents:

  • Augustine wrote that a child is violent if left to his own devices. He mentions how he behaved like a 16-year-old. He and his friends stole pears from his neighbor’s garden although he had many pears of his own.

Via – churchpop.com
  • In his early 20s, Augustine had a relationship with a woman. She gave birth to his son, even though they were not married.
  • Soon after, a friend of his died. Augustine was really depressed by this. Eventually, he concluded that his friend’s death affected him only because of his lack of love for God.
  • Augustine regretted that he had led a sinful life. He regretted believing in astrology.
  • He met St. Ambrose who converted him to Christianity. The Saint also ignited Augustine’s love for Catholicism.
  • Augustine, when shown the Neoplatonist view of God, wrote, “It is one thing to see, from a wooded mountaintop, the land of peace, and not to find the way to it…it is quite another thing to keep to the way which leads there.”

  • In the following books, Augustine continues to write about the significance of prayer and the means to reach God.

The first nine books are autobiographical and the rest commentary. The work symbolizes aspects of the Trinity and the Trinitarian belief.

The first printed edition of Confessions was issued in Strasbourg “not later than 1470”. Professor Henry Chadwick claimed that Confessions will “always rank among the great masterpieces of western literature.”

Victoria’s secret is one of the most renowned and the glamorous brands to ever exist. Very few people know how it actually came into existence. A man named Roy Raymond went to buy lingerie for his wife. The saleswoman in the store kept giving him disapproving looks making him feel unwelcome in the store. That’s when he decided to start a brand/store where men would feel comfortable buying lingerie. Along with his wife Gaye, he started the now world-famous Victoria’s secret. It took him eight years and big loans to startup. The first ever store locates in Stanford Shopping Center, California in 1977.

Via: Pinterest

History of Victoria’s Secret

Who is Victoria and what is her secret? Raymond named the brand as a tribute to Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom to bring back the style and elegance from the Victorian era. The “secret” was what was hidden underneath the clothes.

In 1982 he sold the company to Leslie Wexner, creator of Limited Stores Inc, for 1 million dollars. Under him, the business blossomed from a three-store boutique into a 346 store retailer. The brand sells a wide range of products like lingerie, perfumes, sportswear, sleepwear, creams, accessories, etc.

The Victoria’s Secret fashion show is the most happening event of the year. The first show took place in 1990, but it wasn’t aired. In the year 1999 and 2000, the show was webcast. Best models from all around the world are roped in, and they are called as Victoria’s Secret Angels. The show is now a big event with celebrities performing on stage as the models walk the ramp in their lingerie, showing off their elaborate wings. The average retirement age for the models is as early as 28 years.

The planning is very meticulous and takes almost a year. The fashion show costs around 12million dollars but the 2016 fashion show was the most expensive one, costing 20million dollars. But it is nothing compared to the company’s net worth which is in billions.

The fashion show is actually filmed twice. The TV show is then put together with the best footage from both shows. There is a rumor that the models fight with each other for the outfits and the largest wings. Most ponderous wings, weighing 60 pounds were sported by Alessandra Ambrosio when she was four months pregnant. Heidi Klum was given the honor of flaunting the largest sides.

Every year the company makes a contract with a renowned jewelry designer to craft what they call as the fantasy bra. These bras are studded with diamonds and different kinds of gems and sold for millions of dollars. The most expensive one was 15 million dollars making its way into Guinness book of world records. One model is chosen to flaunt the fantasy bra in the fashion show. Many times the million dollar fantasy bra is not even sold. It has to be dismantled.

Lots of people had an issue with how the size zero was made a perfect size and how it set unrealistic goals for all the girls out there. So much so that when they launched their ‘perfect body ‘ ad campaign, lots of people protested against it and the brand was forced to change the ad to ’ a body for everybody.’ They have been accused of photoshopping as well.

In spite of the criticism, Victoria’s secret continues to be one of the most sought-after brands, and a dream of every girl to own atleast one product from their fantastic collection.

There is also something called as gestational diabetes which means increased blood sugar levels after the 20th week of pregnancy.

The function of insulin is to break down glucose(sugar) and transport it to the muscle and fat cells where it is used as a source of energy. In short, insulin decreases the amount of glucose in the blood. So when there is no insulin, the blood glucose level rises, which is called as hyperglycemia which gives rise to the three classical symptoms of diabetes namely polydipsia (increased thirst), polyuria(increased urine) and polyphagia( increased hunger).

To diagnose, you need to check the blood glucose level in the fasting and post lunch state.

There is another test known as the Oral Glucose Tolerance Test.

Urine is also to be checked for glucose.

Once diagnosed, the treatment depends upon the type of diabetes. For type 1, insulin is given. And for type 2, oral drugs are preferred.

Along with taking insulin/medicines on time, there are several other things that a person with diabetes has to take care of.

Maintain weight:

A diabetic person has to follow a strict diet to ensure that his blood sugars stay within the normal range. Along with that he also has to avoid obesity. For that regular exercise is a must.

Regular eye checkup:

Eye check-up has to be done every year. The reason being, a condition called diabetic retinopathy in which there is involvement of blood vessels of the eye causing small bleeds eventually leading to scarring and loss of vision. It can also lead to a condition called glaucoma which means the intraocular pressure increases.

Kidney function test:

It starts with a small amount of protein in the urine (in healthy people, protein is not seen in the urine). Eventually, the kidney stops functioning.  The condition is called diabetic nephropathy.

Foot care:

In diabetes, there is decrease/loss of sensation called as diabetic neuropathy. This can lead to ignorance of small wounds on the sole, which can lead to spreading of the injury, which can get infected and in grave conditions, the foot might have to get amputated. To avoid this, every night the foot has to be inspected. The effort has to be taken to keep the foot clean.

A little up down in the blood sugar level can lead to fainting episodes. Hence its always better to carry an identity card so the relatives can be informed and the card should also mention that he has diabetes so correct treatment can be given.
