The name is based on “Gol Gumbadh” derived from “Gola Gummata” meaning “circular dome”. It follows the style of culture and [Indo-Islamic architecture] . Even a slight whisper by someone standing in its gallery can be heard everywhere else in the gallery, and if somebody claps, the sound of it echoes several times.

Why is broiler chicken white in color rather than country chicken which is multicolor?

White broilers are white because the original breeding stock was white. They were originally bred sometime in the 1950s by crossing white Plymouth Rocks with white Cornish, and another name for a white broiler is a Cornish/Rock Cross or Cornish X. These chickens are not “genetically engineered” –they are the result of a traditional breeding program, not gene splicing.

Modern Cornish/Rock crosses are quite unlike their Plymouth Rock and Cornish ancestors. They have been bred for hundreds of generations to produce lots of meat very quickly with a minimum of feed. The companies that breed these birds keep their genetic lines very carefully guarded, and there is no way for a backyard breeder to get access to this stock and breed their own birds. The bodies of Cornish/Rocks produce more breast muscle than other chickens and their feet and legs are larger to hold up all that weight. Because Cornish/Rock crosses have been bred to be such extreme birds, it takes very careful management to raise one to breeding age.

How Beer 🍺🍻is made

Beer is one of the oldest and most widely consumed alcoholic drinks in the world, and the third most popular drink overall after water and tea. Beer is brewed from cereal grains—most commonly from malted barley, though wheat, maize (corn), and rice are also used. During the brewing process, fermentation of the starch sugars in the wort produces ethanol and carbonation in the resulting beer. Most modern beer is brewed with hops, which add bitterness and other flavours and act as a natural preservative and stabilizing agent. Other flavouring agents such as gruit, herbs, or fruits may be included or used instead of hops. In commercial brewing, the natural carbonation effect is often removed during processing and replaced with forced carbonation.

Why you must fast during Navratri.

ScientificallyEvery Indian festival is not just a reason to enjoy and make merry. There are many scientific reasons ascertaining the logic behind celebrating festivals on certain times of the year

Navratri is observed, once in the beginning of summer and next in the beginning of winters. If you observe the pattern, it is celebrated at two junctures of seasonal change. According to Ayurveda, eating foods like garlic, onion, meat, grains and eggs can make you attract the negative energies from the surroundings. Another reason is, during this time our body’s immunity is in it’s all time low. Eating such high-energy foods can make you prone to diseases.

There are two main types of Navratri. One is conducted in the month of Chaitra in April and is known as Vasantha Navratri and it is mainly celebrated in North India. And in South India, Sharan Navratri is celebrated in the month of Ashwija in September – October

Nail rubbing improves the blood flow to the hair follicle, which strengthens it. Stronger hair follicles drastically reduce hair loss. Those battling patterned baldness claim to have reversed the balding effects by rubbing their nails. In fact, after a span of 8 to 12 months, hair regrowth is highly possible. According to acupressure study, the nerve endings in our fingertips are linked to the scalp. When you rub your nails together, the friction you create affects nerves in the scalp. This, in turn, increases the blood flow and stimulates hair growth.
