😀 Thought of the day

“If you want to live a happy life, tie it to a goal, not to people or things.”


Boy : I love you!

Girl : तुम पागल हो क्या..

मैं शादी शुदा हूँ.. मेरा पति है, और

एक boyfriend भी है ऑफिस मे,

और मेरा ex–boyfriend मेरे पड़ोस मे रहता है,

और कल ही मेरे boss ने प्रपोज किया है

और मै उन्हे मना नही कर सकती..

और वैसे भी मेरा एक school friend के साथ सीरियस मैटर है..

Boy : (काफ़ी देर देखने के बाद) देख ले कहीं अड्जस्ट होता हो तो! 😛

😳 WHY❓❓❓

Why Jaipur called Pink City

Bcoz of the color of the stone exclusively used for the construction of all the structures. Anyone who has witnessed the city can substantiate the fact that all the buildings of Jaipur are pink in color. The pink color has its own history. In 1876, the Prince of Wales and Queen Victoria visited India on a tour. Since pink denotes the color of hospitality, Maharaja Ram Singh of Jaipur painted the whole city pink in color to welcome the guests. The tradition has been sincerely followed by the residents who are now, by law, compelled to maintain the pink color.

अन्न-दानं महा-दानं विद्या-दानम् अतः परम् ।
अन्नेन क्षणिका तृप्तिः यावत् जीवं च विद्यया ॥

anna-dānaṃ mahā-dānaṃ vidyā-dānam ataḥ param ।
annena kṣaṇikā tṛptiḥ yāvat jīvaṃ cha vidyayā ॥

Giving food to a person is a great deed, but giving vidyā (education) is even better. The satisfaction (obtained) from food is momentary, but that (obtained) from vidyā lasts a lifetime

A simple dynamo is a device that converts mechanical energy into electrical energy. A coil made of conducting wire is positioned between the North and South poles of two permanent magnets. When the coil is stationary, no voltage is induced. But when the coil is rotated it experiences a changing magnetic field. This induces a voltage within the coil. For the first half of a rotation the left side of the coil swings by the North pole of the left magnet and for the second half of the rotation it swings by the South pole of the right magnet. As a result, for the first half the coil generates a voltage with one polarity (either positive or negative) and for the second half the voltage has the opposite polarity. This type of voltage − one that switches between positive and negative − is called alternating voltage.

Dynamo invented: Michael Faraday

Science behind Havan:

Havan is a type of Yajna on a small scale in which fire is kindled, oblation offered and Vedic hymns recited.

The process of yagya magnifies the advantages of the desirable medicinal phytochemicals and other healthy nutritional substances. Medicines and herbs are vaporized by offering them into the sacrificial fire and enter the human body in a gaseous form through the nose, lungs and the pores of the skin.

Yajna is the contact medium for gods and to seek their blessings. There are many types of Yajna performed by Hindus for e.g.,

Rajsuya Yajna
Ashwamedha Yajna
Chaaturmasya Yajna
Vaajpey Yajna
Purushmedha Yajna
Sarvamedha Yajna
