Shivneri Fort, Shivneri, Ahmadnagar Sultanate was an Indian warrior-king and a member of the Bhonsle Maratha clan.

It arises from a lack of fluids or an increase in the concentration of certain osmolites, such as sodium. If the water volume of the body falls below a certain threshold or the osmolite concentration becomes too high, structures in the brain detect changes in blood constituents and signal thirst

Dehydration: This occurs when you lack the proper amount of fluids for your body to function properly. … Dehydration can be caused by illness, profuse sweating, too much urine output, vomiting, or diarrhea. Diabetes mellitus: Excessive thirst can be caused by high blood sugar (hyperglycemia).

🤔 How it works ⁉


We all now know the ATM is an electro-mechanical device, with a switch that knows how much cash is available in an ATM and in what denomination. In a cash withdrawal transaction, once your PIN is verified and there is sufficient balance in your account, the switch sends an instruction to the ATM to dispense the amount requested. You would be receiving a mix of Rs2,000, Rs500, Rs100 and sometimes even Rs200 from ATMs

The currency notes inside the ATM are stacked in boxes called ‘cassettes’. Each cassette is loaded with one denomination. Most of the ATMs in the country have four such cassettes, while some of the older ATMs may have two cassettes.

Have you ever wondered how the ATMs know which denomination of notes to dispense and how many of each denomination? Most of the switches follow the principle of ‘last note to be dispensed in the lowest denomination available in the ATM’ at the time of withdrawal’. For example, if you want to withdraw Rs1,000 from an ATM and the ATM has Rs500 and Rs100 denomination available, it will dispense one note of Rs500 and five notes of Rs100. If instead of Rs500 and Rs100, it has Rs200 and Rs100, the ATM will dispense four notes of Rs.200 and two notes of Rs100.

James Goodfellow is the man who first patented automated cash machines that use pin numbers. Some say the inventor is John Shepherd-Barron. John D. White

Symbolic Meaning of Natraj

God Shiva in Bhujangatrasita karana pose. five most important elements, indicating the Panchakritya, or five key acts of the Nataraja.

Srishti or creation : The Nataraja’s rear left arm carries
Damuru, the vibrations of which create the universe. Some conflate this with the Big Bang of cosmic creation.

Samhara or destruction: The raised, rear right-hand carries the fire that atrophies matter to a formless state, only for regeneration. In that sense, it is the fire of transformation.

Sthithi or maintenance/protection: The open palm of the forehand indicates an assurance: There is nothing to fear about constant cosmic overhaul; change is normal and I’m here to protect you.

Tirobhava or concealment: The hidden lower-left palm pointing downwards says he’s the creator of maya, illusion or the veil of ignorance.

Anugraha or blessing or liberation : The raised left foot, combined with the closed hand, signifies the option available before the seeker: moksha or liberation from ignorance and, by implication, from the cycle of birth and death.

God Shiva standing on a body of an Asur/demon called Apasmara.

Demon at the Nataraja’s feet represents the evils of ignorance and ego, to be trampled upon if one must rise to a higher plane of self-actualisation. Therefore Shiva, in Nataraja form, keep on dancing, eternally.

Circle of fire : The frame around Nataraja is maya, illusion, as experienced through the cyclical phenomenon of birth & death.
