Friend– My apna purse ghar pe bhul aaya mujhe 1000 Rupees ki zarurat hi. Dena yaar.

Menstruation is a woman’s monthly bleeding, often called “period.” The blood and tissue lining the uterus (womb) break down and leave the body. This is called period. For many women, bleeding lasts from 4 to 8 days. It makes Hormone levels low. Low levels of the hormone estrogen can make you feel depressed or irritable😡😰

In a woman, a period is body’s way of releasing tissue that it no longer needs. Every month, her body prepares for pregnancy. The lining of uterus gets thicker as preparation for nurturing a fertilized egg. An egg is released and is ready to be fertilized and settle in the lining of your uterus.

Ovulation is when the ovary releases an egg so it can be fertilized by a sperm in order to make a baby. A woman is most likely to get pregnant if she has sex without birth control in the three days before and up to the day of ovulation (since the sperm are already in place and ready to fertilize the egg as soon as it is released). A man’s sperm can live for 3 to 5 days in a woman’s reproductive organs, but a woman’s egg lives for just 12 to 24 hours after ovulation. 

Ovulation happens about 14 days before your period starts. If your average menstrual cycle is 28 days, woman ovulate around day 14, and most fertile days are days 12, 13 and 14. If average menstrual cycle is 35 days ovulation happens around day 21 and your most fertile days are days 19,20 and 21.

How earth gets rotates continuously in same speed ? 

Earth spins because of the way it was formed. Our Solar System formed about 4.6 billion years ago when a huge cloud of gas and dust started to collapse under its own gravity. As the cloud collapsed, it started to spin.

According to Newton’s First Law of Motion it states: The motion of an object will remain unchanged unless a force acts on it.
an object will never change its speed or direction unless something comes along and forces it to do so.

Gravity: an attractive force between objects with mass. Gravity holds the Sun and planets together in the solar system, and holds stars together in galaxies.

Akshayapatra (अक्षयपात्र) 🍚 meaning inexhaustible vessel, is an object from Hindu mythology. It was a wonderful vessel given to Yudishtira by Lord Surya which held a never-depleting supply of food to the Pandavas every day.

One day, Krishna suddenly came to visit the Pandavas when they are in forest, he visits Draupadi and ask for food, she was sitting and weeping in the kitchen. With tears in her eyes, Draupadi bowed her head before Krishna and showed him an empty pot in which she had cooked rice that morning and she did not have any more rice in the house. But Krishna said to her: “Thank you sister
Look carefully.” Draupadi looked, and she found a single grain of rice stuck inside the pot. Krishna said “A single grain of rice, if offered to God with love and humility, becomes the beeja (primordial seed) which feeds and satiates the whole universe.” He then ate that single grain of rice. This miraculous divine episode happened on the day which is commemorated as “Akshaya Tritiya” every year, and it occurs around the time of the spring harvest in April-May every year.

Krishna was very sorrowful to see the condition of his sister Draupadi and his cousins, the Pandavas, he then suggests hymning 108 chants of lord Surya by Pandavas. Later tgey Blessed by Surya with an Akshaya Patra, the inexhaustible vessel.
