Joke of the day
Teacher: What is the diffirence between pyar & shaadi?
Pappu: very simple sir, pyar insaan ko andha bana deta hai aur shaadi insaan ki ankhen khol deti hai..!
Why the financial year starts from April and ends in March?
In the many regional calenders like the Hindu calendar etc, the New Year starts in the month of April and this may be a reason why the govt also thought of starting the financial year in the month of April itself.
India was ruled by the Britishers for more than 150 years. And in the UK, the financial year starts from 1st April and not 1st Jan. And therefore, the same concept may have been applied to India as well by the Britishers and after Independence; the Indian Govt didn’t change this

How it works ⁉
How Is Marble Formed
Marble is a metamorphic rock, which means ‘rock that has changed’. Metamorphic rocks are formed from other materials already existing on the earth’s surface. Igneous rocks are formed directly from lava or the earth’s molten core. Marble is formed from limestone. In geological terms, marble is a crystallized form of limestone or dolomite.
The beautiful and unique patterns in natural marble are a major reason for its value. These are formed by deposits of minerals which existed in the limestone before it was affected by extreme heat and pressure. Presence of various minerals and salts, marble takes on many stunning natural colours, from purest white to shimmering greens. Different colours are caused by different substances. As an example, black veins or grey shading is usually caused by carbon impurities while green is linked to serpentine.
There are rich marble deposits in the states of Rajasthan, which accounts for the huge production of marble in India; the other marble-producing states include Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.
