Facts about India

Maharana Pratap Singh popularly known as “ Maharana ” was the 13th king of Mewar (the present Rajasthan). He was born on May 9, 1540. The “Siege of Chittorgarh” led to the loss of fertile eastern belt to the Mughals in 1568. Akbar wanted to establish a secure route to Gujarat through Mewar. So, he sent number of envoys to King Rana to become a vassal just like the other Rajputs. Rana refused. Hence, the Battle of Haldighati was fought. Maharana is known for his bravery in the Battle of Haldighati. The battle was fought on 18 June, 1576 between Maharana and the forces of Akbar. Though, the Rana lost, he and his chief army men escaped with wounds. They re-gathered their forces, fought and won against the Mughals after six year.

Why Do We Cough: Possible Causes and Triggers 🗣️🗣️

Coughing is a way in which our body gets rid of foreign particles, irritants, microbes, mucus and bacteria – among other allergens from the throat. Coughing, by forcing air out of the lungs under high pressure, attempts to clear the throat of these foreign particles.

Coughing helps us expels mucus, microbes and foreign particles from our airways, protecting our lungs from infection and inflammation.

When we cough we begin by gasping, which draws air deep into our lungs. Next, a lid shuts over our windpipe before the muscles in our chest, diaphragm and abdomen tighten. With the lid over our windpipe shut tight, air can’t escape. Tremendous pressure builds up in our airways. Eventually, the lid over our windpipe swings open and air rushes out at a tremendous speed, making the noise we call a cough.

Most coughs go away on their own within three weeks. In the meantime, we should rest and drink plenty of fluids and hot lemon with honey. Hot lemon with honey has a similar effect as cough medicines
