VISAKHAPATNAM got its name from Lord Visakheswara Temple (Also known as Lord Karthikeya, second son of Lord Shiva) now located beneath the seawaters. When the Britishers built a port along the natural harbour here, they pronounced the original name as Vizagapatam (pronounced as Vee-Zaag-ah-paat-ahm). But when they wrote it down, whoever read it pronounced it as Y-zag-ah-patam.

Thus visakhapatnam became Vizagapatam and in short, Vizag. The citizens of visakhapatnam came to be known as Vizagites.

Vizag is also called Waltair . word originated from two very common telugu words related to fishing “Vala – Theddu”. Vala means Net and Theddu means Oar. Since the shore was filled extensively with fishermen, it might be called “ValaTheddu”, which subsequently turned into Walatedu and Walteru and finally Waltair.

Why are diamonds so expensive? Why are they considered so valuable?

Diamonds are a highly valued stone Diamonds have three other crucial ingredients: pressure, heat, and time.

Diamonds are formed in the Earth’s mantle, somewhere between 1 and 3 billion years ago. which is approximately 25% to 75% of our earth’s age. Formed by heat and pressure, diamonds are then delivered to the Earth’s surface by deep-source volcanic eruptions or the movement of subduction zones that bring the diamonds up to the ocean floor

While colorless diamonds are often considered the most valuable, diamonds exist in a wide range of colors due to mineral contamination or lattice deformation. For example, black diamonds come from graphite contamination, red diamonds from plastic deformation, purple from plastic deformation and hydrogen contamination, green from irradiation deformation, pink from plastic deformation, and brown, yellow, orange, and blue from nitrogen.

The term “carat” is derived from the carob seed, the ancient unit of measure for diamond weight. As technology evolved, jewelers began using mechanical balances and electric scales to measure carat weight accurately. Precious stones are weighed in carats; a single carat is equal to 200 milligrams. Carat is also a variant spelling of karat, which measures the purity (but not the weight) of gold.

A karat is 1/24 part of pure gold by weight, so 24-karat gold is pure gold.

How does coal formed

Coal formed millions of years ago when the earth was covered with huge swampy forests where plants – giant ferns, reeds and mosses – grew. As the plants grew, some died and fell into the swamp waters. New plants grew up to take their places and when these died still more grew. In time, there was thick layer of dead plants rotting in the swamp. The surface of the earth changed and water and dirt washed in, stopping to decaying process. More plants grew up, but they too died and fell, forming separate layers. After millions of years many layers had formed, one on top of the other. The weight of the top layers and the water and dirt packed down the lower layers of plant matter. Heat and pressure produced chemical and physical changes in the plant layers which forced out oxygen and left rich carbon deposits. In time, material that had been plants became coal.

Coals are classified into three main ranks, or types: lignite, bituminous coal, and anthracite. These classifications are based on the amount of carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen present in the coal

India holds the fifth-largest coal reserves in the world. Jharkhand top the list of India’s coal reserves — at more than 26% — and production

Symbolism explanation behind Krishna`s butter stealing act

Krishna, the eternal ruler of hearts, stole butter from the neighbourhood. Along with his friends, he would quietly enter people’s houses and grab clay pots full of freshly churned butter. And hence even till date he is addressed as Makhan Chor, meaning butter thief.

But have you ever really wondered what this butter stealing act means?

Krishna stole hearts that were as pure and soft as butter. Just the way butter is white; our hearts need to be spotless. One mustn’t nurse anger, pride, greed, envy, hatred and ego in the heart. Hence, Krishna is also known as Chittachora (one who steals hearts).

Here’s another explanation – The mind must be as light as butter. When we churn the curd, the butter floats on the surface. Likewise, our minds must be detached from the materialistic world. Only then, would we succeed in attaining enlightenment
