Why do dogs run behind vehicles? 🚗 🦮

Dogs get super active post 10 or 11 PM. They rest the whole day and wander in the night. Anything flashy, too loud or too fast, before they could smell they will prepare for a attack thinking the approaching thing some intruders and the dog needs to save itself and others.

Actual dogs are territorial animals and they have their own इलाका ( territories) like we humans have. That’s why they keep urinating on trees, vehicles to expand their area.

When any vehicle which has urine of any other dog comes in their territory they think that some dog from outside is coming in their territory, so they run after the car to keep, other so called Dogs, out of the area.

नात्यन्त गुणवत् किञ्चित नाचाप्यत्यन्तनिर्गुणम् ।
उभयं सर्वकार्येषु दृष्यते साध्वासाधुवा ॥

nātyanta guṇavat kiñcita nācāpyatyantanirguṇam ।
ubhayaṃ sarvakāryēṣu dṛṣyatē sādhvāsādhuvā ॥

Meaning: There is no work which is good in all respects, nor bad in all respects Both good and bad exist in every work.

भावार्थ : ऐसा कोई भी कार्य नही है, जो सर्वदा अच्छा हो, या सर्वदा बुरा हो, अच्छे और बुरे गुण तो प्रत्येक कार्य में होते ही है। Nirvighnam : Uninterrupted

What adaptations allow the frog to live on land and in water? 🐸

Frogs start their lives as aquatic tadpoles with gills to breathe. As tadpoles grow into frogs, lungs replace the gills and allow frogs to breathe on land. Frogs’ skin is covered by a layer of slime that dissolves oxygen from air and water. Numerous blood vessels present in frogs’ thin skin absorb the oxygen🐸

The North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) was created in 1949 by the United States, Canada, and other western European nations to provide collective security against the Soviet Union. NATO constitutes a system of collective security, whereby its independent member states agree to mutual defence in response to an attack by any external party.

NATO comprises 30 countries from the original 12 countries that signed the North Atlantic Treaty on 4 April 1949. The founding members of NATO are– Belgium, Canada, Denmark, France, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, United Kingdom and the United States.

Home Remedies for Fever

For treating malarial fever you can check out the home remedies for malaria fever

Ingredients:
Black Pepper
Ginger
Holy Basil /Tulsi
Rose water

Sponging the forehead and the body with cold water is a commonly recommended practice in high fever and in fever due to sun-stroke. For better results, add 1 teaspoonful of rose water to the cold water before sponging. You could even add the rose water to an ice-bag and use it for sponging.
Take about 20 fresh leaves of Holy Basil. Take a small piece of ginger and about 5 grains of black pepper. Boil them together in your tea and drink the warm liquid.

Note: Never attempt to force-feed a person down with fever since the body is struggling to counter the fever and food may only aggravate the situation (the person is likely to vomit).
