Why can’t animals talk?
The Broca’s area in the cerebrum of our brain is closely associated with speech comprehension. This part of the brain is less developed, or absent, in other animals. Therefore, it is said to confer upon us the ability to talk. There is also the presence of certain pathways found only in some animals, humans among them. These pathways are supposed to be instrumental in our vocal abilities. The other groups of animals who are said to possess these pathways are birds, like hummingbirds, songbirds and parrots, as well as mammals like bats and cetaceans.

Parrots can mimic the sound made by humans.
these do not understand the meaning of these words.

🤔 How it works ⁉

How do animals see in the dark?

Nocturnal hunters like owls and cats eyes are tubular, rather than spherical, with a very large lens positioned close to the retina. This structure allows a lot of light to register on the retina.

Many nocturnal animals have a mirror-like layer, called the tapetum, behind the retina, which helps them make the most of small amounts of light. Light that passes through the retina is reflected off the tapetum, giving the retinal cells a second chance to sense it. This makes some animals’ eyes shine in the glare of car headlights. The color you see is the pigment on the inner layer of the retina.

At the heart of all vision is the retina, which contains two types of light-sensing cells: rods and cones. Cones account for color vision but require bright, focused light, whereas rods can sense very dim, scattered light, but don’t produce a color image.

One should not get the impression that an animal’s night vision is perfect – even nocturnal animals aren’t active in the darkest hours of a moonless night.

Why Lord Shiva Is Worshipped In Sawan Month

Sawan month is considered to be quite auspicious. It is also considered to be the favourite month of Lord Shiva. Devotees of Lord Shiva, Many stories associated with it. One such story is of Samundra Manthan (the churning of the ocean). When Gods and demons were churning the ocean to gain the divine Amrit (nectar), the first thing that came out was Halahal, a deadly poison. Moreover, if this Halahal wasn’t consumed then it could destroy the whole universe. So everyone pleaded Lord Shiva to suggest something. , Lord Shiva kept that poison in his throat only. He didn’t let it to reach his stomach as his stomach represents the Universe. This turned his neck blue and since then Lord Shiva is known as ‘Neelkanth’. Also says that’s the way Sky is in Blue colour.

Moreover, after this, the next month that came was Sawan and during this month, Earth receives plenty of rainfall which ensures that the temperature is cool and pleasant. Thus people started worshipping Lord Shiva during this month for not only saving the universe from Poison (Halahal) but also to offer Him things that would provide Him the necessary cold and comfort.

Reason behind avoiding Non Veg in Shrawan month. Indian religion science says that non-veg should not be eaten in the Hindi month of Saawan (rainy season). According to Indian Religion science and vedic Knowledge, who eats non-veg in Shravan, his/ her health is severely affected. During the monsoons, due to the lack of sunlight, our digestive systems are weaker and therefore, it is better to refrain from eating non-vegetarian food. The snacks that people eat during the Sawan fast are light and easy to digest. Also during the rains, there are many water-borne diseases. And the animal meat has chances of being infected. So it is advisable to avoid it during the monsoons🙏🏻
