🇮🇳 FACTS ABOUT INDIA 🇮🇳
WHY INDIA IS CALLED BHARAT*
The name India is derived from the river Sindhu which flows in the north west of the country. The Greeks used to call us Indoi meaning the people of the Indus. BHARAT etymology: The name Bharat is derived from the legendary king Bharat who was ancestor of kauravas and pandavas; According to the Vayu Purana, about 22 million years ago, in the beginning of the Treta Yuga, the grandson of Swayambhuva Manu and son of Priyabrata settled this Bharata Khanda. Since Maharaj Priyabrata had no son, he adopted his daughter’s son Agnindhra, whose boy was Navel.
The son born to Meru Devi, a wife of Navel, was named Rishabh and, the son of this same Rishabh was Bharata and after this Bharata, this country was named “Bharatavarsha”.
India is also called as Jambu Deewpa. which means the whole island. That is why our ancient religious texts and various incarnations mention only “Jambudweep” because at that time there was only one island.

WHAT DOES 786 MEAN IN ISLAM? ☪️*
Especially among the Muslims living in the South East Asia like Pakistan, India and Myanmar, there is a common practice of writing ‘786’ while starting anything in written. They too mention this number in their sign boards and other documents. It is believed that this number depicts the total numerological value of the Quranic expression “ Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim “. 786 is basically driven from the series of Arabic Numerology called “ Abjad “. The total value of the letters of Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim, according to the standard Abjadi system of numerology, is 786 . This number has therefore acquired a significance in folk Islam but this number has not been mentioned anywhere in Holy Quran.

🤔 HOW IT WORKS
HOW PAINT IS MADE
The Ingredients in Paint.
There are four main components in paint, they are resin, additives, solvent, and pigment.
The resin and pigments fuse, forming a tough, solid that is known as paint film.
Enamel paint is made from an alkyd resin that is dissolved in a solvent. As the solvent evaporates in the first stage, it forms a tacky lacquer. The resin reacts with the oxygen in the air and forms a hard coating. Coating paints have two components that are unreactive alone. However, when they are placed together, they undergo a chemical reaction. The reaction may take some time, depending on the room’s temperature. The final result is a hard, tough coating that has great adhesion.

HOW DID INDRA GET VAJRAYUDHAM?*
Vajrayudham means a weapon equivalent to that of a thunderbolt in swiftness and the destruction it can cause. Indra is the lone bearer of this weapon among all the devas in Hindu mythology. There are various stories prevailing regarding the making and introduction of Vajrayudham.
Earliest mention of Vajrayudham is in Rig Veda, it mentions as Indra bears the Vajrayudham made by Tvastar, weapon maker of devas. Puranic references yield a different story related to sage Dadhichi. Once Indra was thrown out of his Indraloka by an asura named Vritra. He has sought a boon that he would not be killed by any weapon made out of wood or metal. Unable to defeat Vritra, Indra sought the help of Vishnu along with Brahma and Shiva. Vishnu advised Indra to seek the help of sage Dadhichi as a weapon made out of his backbone only could slay Vritra. Indra appeals sage Dadhichi and in turn gives up his life through yoga. Devas make a weapon out of sage Dadhichi’s backbone called Vajrayudham and Indra slays Vritra and saves Indraloka.
