🇮🇳 FACTS ABOUT INDIA 🇮🇳

Alluri Sitarama Raju (4 July 1897 or 1898 – 7 May 1924) was an Indian revolutionary who waged an armed campaign against British colonial rule in India.

Born in present-day Andhra Pradesh, he became involved in opposing the British in response to the 1882 Madras Forest Act, which effectively restricted the free movement of Adivasis (tribal communities) in their forest habitats and prevented them from practicing a traditional form of agriculture known as podu.

Rising discontent towards the British led to the Rampa Rebellion of 1922, in which he played a major part as a leader. Mustering a force combined of Adivasis, farmers and sympathizers to their cause, he engaged in guerilla campaigns against the British colonial authorities in the border regions of the Madras Presidency part of the districts of East Godavari and Visakhapatnam (now part of Alluri Sitharama Raju district).

He was nicknamed “Manyam Veerudu” (transl. Hero of the Jungle) by local villagers for his heroic exploits.

😳WHY❓❓❓

Ever Wondered Why Do We Touch The Feet Of Our Elders to take blessings?

When we bend, we lose the ego and convey respect to the age of our elders, to their wisdom, to the achievements they have received and the experiences that they have gained.

When we touch the feet of our elders, a highly positive energy flows from their feet and is transferred to the seeker in the form of goodwill and blessings. Again, when the person stretches his hand to bless the seeker, another circuit of goodwill and blessings is formed

🤔 HOW IT WORKS ⁉

How Sun☀️ gets energy

The sun’s energy comes from within the sun itself. Like most stars, the sun is made up mostly of hydrogen and helium atoms in a plasma state.

The sun generates energy from a process called nuclear fusion.

The sun generates energy from a process called nuclear fusion. During nuclear fusion, the high pressure and temperature in the sun’s core cause nuclei to separate from their electrons. Hydrogen nuclei fuse to form one helium atom. During the fusion process, radiant energy is released.

The energy emitted from the photosphere then propagates through space and reaches Earth’s atmosphere and the other planets of the solar system. Here on Earth, the upper layer of the atmosphere (the ozone layer) filters much of the sun’s ultra-violet (UV) radiation but passes some onto the surface. The energy that received is then absorbed by the Earth’s air and crust, heating our planet and providing organisms with a source of energy.
