Why do we fart?

Flatulence, also known as a fart, is something everyone experiences. It’s the release of intestinal gas, which forms as a result of digesting food. Gas can be found throughout the digestive tract, including the stomach, small intestine, colon, and rectum. We fart because of the buildup of gas in our bodies, typically due to:

Swallowed air : We swallow air throughout the day, including from carbonated beverages or taking in air as we chew.

An overgrowth of bacteria in the small intestine: Several conditions can lead to bacteria overgrowth, including type 2 diabetes, celiac disease, liver disease, and inflammatory bowel disease.

Carbohydrates that haven’t been fully digested : Sometimes all your food doesn’t get fully digested by the enzymes in the small intestines. When partially digested carbs reach the colon, bacteria convert part of that food into hydrogen and carbon dioxide gasses.

All that gas has to go somewhere. Some of it can be absorbed by the body. But when too much of it gathers in the upper part of your colon and puts pressure on the colon wall, you can feel pain in your abdomen or even all the way up into your chest. Flatulence, though, allows for a painless means of escape for this gas.

How it works ⁉


Aura is an electromagnetic field around every living body. In human beings, it is a storehouse of all negative and positive energies. As human beings, we radiate a very low level of electricity that’s otherwise known as an electromagnetic field. We’re all broadcasting like radio stations without even knowing it.

An energy body of auras has seven layers, each layer being related to each of the seven energy chakras or wheels located along the spine.

Each layer of your aura is said to be represented by a different color.

Gray auras can show skepticism and uncertainty about others. They often see the glass half empty.

Brown : A brown aura often denotes a selfish persona.

Black : A black aura can show a dark energy which is often pessimistic and unkind.

Red : Passions run high with those who have a red aura, as they live by their desires and emotions.

Orange : Creativity is key for those who have an orange aura. Their artistry brings peace to them.
Yellow auras are high energy and exude optimism.
Green auras mark a grounded, hard-working person who is a nature lover

A good way of looking at the aura is to view it as your energy signature. Whatever emotions, feelings and state of mind and being you experience, shows in your aura. And as your aura is electromagnetic in nature, it will repel some people and attract others, depending upon what their energy signature is.

For example, People who are perhaps more emotional based and who connect with people from their heart, will be generally more inclined to attract people who are more loving, empathic and emotional

Back in 1970, Guy Coggins built a camera that could capture people’s auras, otherwise known as the electromagnetic field surrounding the body.

Some believe that the way these colors vary and interact illustrates how emotionally, spiritually, and physically complex you are.

One way to think of auras is as the “energy” someone around you omits. Some people make you nervous — others relax you. This, in some ways, could be seen as a reaction to the energy they radiate.


नाभिषेको न संस्कारः सिंहस्य क्रियते वने। विक्रमार्जितसत्वस्य स्वयमेव मृगेन्द्रता॥

Nobody declares a lion as the king of forest by doing rituals. By sheer might of his own, a lion achieves the status of lord of animal kingdom.

कोई और सिंह का वन के राजा जैसे अभिषेक या संस्कार नहीं करता है, अपने पराक्रम के बल पर वह स्वयं पशुओं का राजा बन जाता है ॥
