🇮🇳 FACTS ABOUT INDIA 🇮🇳
Prithviraja III (1178–1192 CE), popularly known as Prithviraj Chauhan or Rai Pithora, was a king from the Chahamana (Chauhan) dynasty. He ruled Sapadalaksha, the traditional Chahamana territory, in present-day north-western India. He controlled much of the present-day Rajasthan, Haryana, and Delhi; and some parts of Punjab, Madhya Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Gujrat. His capital was located at Ajayameru (modern Ajmer).
He unified several Rajput clans and repelled a Ghorid invasion led by Shihabuddin Ghori. However, in 1192 CE, Shihabuddin returned with an army of mounted archers and defeated the Rajput army in the Second battle of Tarain, and executed Prithviraj shortly after. His defeat at Tarain is seen as a landmark event in the Islamic conquest of India.

WHY CRABS WALK SIDEWAYS 🦀🦀
Because crabs have stiff, jointed legs, they move faster and easier walking sideways. Walking sideways means that one leg never moves into the path of another. So a crab is also less likely to trip over its feet

🤔 HOW IT WORKS ⁉
HOW A MAGNET IS MADE ?
There is a group of materials known as ferromagnetic materials. This group includes iron, cobalt, nickel, and some alloys of rare earth elements (mainly neodymium and samarium). These ferromagnetic materials can be made magnetic by exposing them to a magnetic field using electric current.
Simply it can created:
When you rub a piece of iron along a magnet, the north-seeking poles of the atoms in the iron line up in the same direction. The force generated by the aligned atoms creates a magnetic field. The piece of iron has become a magnet. Some substances can be magnetized by an electric current.

23rd March – World Meteorological Day
World Meteorological Day is celebrated on 23rd March every year to attract attention towards weather and climate for the safety and well-being of the society.

Hydrometeorological and Climate Information for Disaster Risk Reduction.”
Bhagat Singh (27 September 1907– 23 March 1931) was a charismatic Indian revolutionary who participated in the mistaken murder of a junior British police officer in what was to be retaliation for the death of an Indian nationalist.
He later took part in a largely symbolic bombing of the Central Legislative Assembly in Delhi and a hunger strike in jail, which—on the back of sympathetic coverage in Indian-owned newspapers—turned him into a household name in Punjab region, and after his execution at age 23 into a martyr and folk hero in Northern India.
Bhagat Singh was convicted of the murder of John Saunders and Channan Singh, and hanged in March 1931, aged 23.
