Why do cars/ vehicles outside of India have the steering wheel on the left side?*

India, being a former British colony, inherited the left-hand side of the road and right-hand side of the car as the steering-wheel side. … Hence, a driver sitting on left side in the car will have a better appreciation of the traffic coming from opposite.

Left-om Britain in 1835. Countries which were part of the British Empire followed suit. This is why to this very day, India, Australia and there former British colonies in Africa go left. … It wasn’t until Napoleon conquered the Netherlands that the Dutch started driving on the right.

Different snails reproduce differently, but most snails are “hermaphrodites.” Being a hermaphrodite means that any given snail can be both male and female at the same time. This can make it a lot easier for snails to reproduce and quickly make a whole lot of snails! Some hermaphrodite snails do not need another snail to reproduce, but can make more snails all by themselves (this is called asexual reproduction). Other snails are hermaphrodites but still need another snail to reproduce (this is called sexual reproduction). There are also some snails that aren’t hermaphrodites, but are either male or female, and must find a snail of the opposite sex to breed with.

SATYABHAMA , also known as, Satrajiti, is the third consort of the Lord Shri Krishna. Satyabhama is believed to be an avatar of Bhumī Devī.
Satyabhama was the daughter of Yadava King Satrajit, the royal treasurer of Dwaraka, who was the owner of the Syamantaka jewel. Satrajit, who secured the jewel from the sun-god Surya and would not part with it even when Krishna, the king of Dwarka, asked for it saying it would be safe with him. Shortly thereafter, Prasena, the brother of Satrajit went out hunting wearing the jewel but was killed by a lion. Jambavan, known for his role in the Ramayana, killed the lion and gave the jewel to his daughter Jambavati. When Prasena did not return, Satrajit falsely accused Krishna of killing Prasena for the sake of the jewel.

Krishna, in order to remove the stain on his reputation, set out with his men in search of the jewel and found it in Jambavan’s cave, with his daughter. Jambavan attacked Krishna thinking him to be an intruder who had come to take away the jewel. They fought each other for 28 days, when Jambavan, whose whole body was terribly weakened from the incisions of Krishna’s sword, finally recognised him as Rama and surrendered to the lord.

As repentance for his having fought Krishna, Jambavan gave Krishna the jewel and also his daughter Jambavati in marriage. Krishna returned the jewel to Satrajit, who in turn apologized for his false accusation. He promptly offered to give Krishna the jewel and his daughter Satyabhama, in marriage. Krishna accepted them but refused the jewel.
