🇮🇳 Facts about India 🇮🇳

Shimla Agreement, was signed between India and Pakistan on 2 July 1972 in Shimla, the capital city of the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh.

It followed from the Bangladesh Liberation war in 1971 that led to the independence of Bangladesh, which was earlier known as East Pakistan and was part of the territory of Pakistan. India entered the war as an ally of Bangladesh which transformed the war into an Indo-Pakistani War of 1971. The agreement was ratified by the Parliaments of both the nations in the same year.

The treaty was signed in Simla (also spelt “Shimla”) in India by Zulfiqar Ali Bhutto, the President of Pakistan, and Indira Gandhi, the Prime Minister of India. The agreement also paved the way for diplomatic recognition of Bangladesh by Pakistan.
The agreement converted the cease-fire line of 17 December 1971 into the Line of Control (LOC) between India and Pakistan and it was agreed that “neither side shall seek to alter it unilaterally, irrespective of mutual differences and legal interpretations”

😀 Thought of the day

When the flower 💐🌸🌼blooms, the bees🐝 come uninvited. 🙏🏻

Joke of the day

Wife asked her husband to give the newspaper.🎫

Husband🤓 : How backward you are? Technology has developed so much and you are still asking for the newspaper📰🗞️..??? Take my iPad……📱
Wife took the iPad and killed the cockroach . Husband faints.😬🤐

Moral : Whatever the wife asks, give her without argument. Show your smartness in office, not@ home 😆😅😂🤪

😳 Why❓❓❓

why can’t we see stars during daytime✨🌟

Stars aren’t visible during the sunlit hours of daytime because the light-scattering properties of our atmosphere spread sunlight across the sky. Seeing the dim light of a distant star in the blanket of photons from our Sun becomes as difficult as spotting a single snowflake in a blizzard.

बाहुः (Bahu) : Arm

🤔 How it works

How does a memory card/SD card work?

An SD (Secure Digital) card is a solid-state device. This means it has no moving parts in order to function. Inside the SD card is circuitry that includes flash memory.

Data in an SD card is stored on a series of electronic components called NAND chips. These chips allow data to be written and stored on the SD card. As the chips have no moving parts, data can be transferred from the cards quickly, far exceeding the speeds available to CD or hard-drive media.

Each SD card comes formatted with a File Allocation Table (FAT) file system. When a card is placed in an activated device, such as a camera or a cellphone, a small electrical current from the device moves electrons in the flash memory chip. The digital patterns stored on the chip correlate to the data stored there. Data is erased when a slightly higher voltage is applied to the circuit.

In Santana Dharma Why lotus consider as special?

The lotus is the symbol of truth, auspiciousness and beauty (satyam, shivam, sundaram).
The Lord is also that nature and therefore, His various aspects are compared to a lotus (i.e.
lotus-eyes, lotus feet, lotus hands, the lotus of the heart etc.).
The lotus blooms with the rising sun and close at night. Similarly, our minds open up and
expand with the light of knowledge. The lotus grows even in slushy areas. It remains
beautiful and untainted despite its surroundings, reminding us that we too can and should
strive to remain pure and beautiful within, under all circumstances.
The lotus leaf never gets wet even though it is always in water. It symbolizes the man of
wisdom (gyaani) who remains ever joyous, unaffected by the world of sorrow and change.
This is revealed in a shloka from the Bhagwad-Geeta

Brahmanyaadhaaya karmaani
Sangam tyaktvaa karoti yaha
Lipyate na sa paapena
Padma patram ivaambhasaa!

Meaning of this slokha : The person who does actions, offering them to Brahman(the Supreme), abandoning attachment is not tainted by sin, just as a lotus leaf which remains unaffected by the water on it.
