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 years.

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

Kidney stones form when your urine contains more crystal-forming substances — such as calcium, oxalate and uric acid — than the fluid in your urine can dilute. At the same time, your urine may lack substances that prevent crystals from sticking together, creating an ideal environment for kidney stones to form

Jambavan (Devanagari: जाम्बवान्) also known as Jambavat (Devanagari: जाम्बवत्) is the divine-king of bears, created by the god Brahma to assist the avatara Rama in his struggle against the Lanka king Ravana.

Jambavan, together with Parashurama and Hanuman, is considered to be one of the few to have been present for both Rama and Krishna avataras. His daughter Jambavati was married to Krishna. As he was also present at the Samudra Manthana, or the churning of the ocean, he was thus witness to the Kurma avatara, and further the Vamana avatara, Jambavan may well be the longest-lived of the Chiranjeevi and have been witness to nine avataras
