Mumbai (formerly called Bombay) is a densely populated city on India’s west coast. A financial center, it’s India’s largest city. On the Mumbai Harbour waterfront stands the iconic Gateway of India stone arch, built by the British Raj in 1924. Offshore, nearby Elephanta Island holds ancient cave temples dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva. The city’s also famous as the heart of the Bollywood film industry.

In the mid-1990s, Shiv Sena, the Hindu nationalist party in power in Bombay, decided to change the city’s name to Mumbai, a name often used in local languages that derives from Mumba Devi, the patron Hindu goddess of the island’s original residents, the Koli fishermen.

Why in India, Fuel price is different in various states: Prices is calculated like this: 

Crude Oil (Indian Basket) + Refining Cost + Central Excise Duty + Dealer’s Commision + VAT (collected by State Government) = Petrol Price (in your city)

For Example if 
Petrol Price (Indian Basket) = ₹32.39
Refining Cost = ₹5.93

Central Excise Duty = ₹19.48

Dealer’s Commision = ₹3.62
*till here the price is now fixed before entering into state

i.e. Total = ₹61.42 

1 — VAT (eg Delhi is 27%) = ₹61.42 × 0.27 = ₹16.58

Pollution Cess = ₹0.25

Then Petrol Price in Delhi becomes = ₹78.25/L

How does matchbook work 🔥

When the matchstick is rubbed against the side of the match box, some of the red phosphorus is converted into white phosphorus; this immediately reacts with potassium chlorate in the matchstick head to produce enough heat to ignite antimony trisulphide and starts the combustion of matchstick.

In 1826 John Walker of England invented the first friction matches. Walker’s matches were ignited by drawing the heads through a folded piece of paper coated with ground glass. He began selling them in 1827, but they were difficult to light and were not a success. Again In 1831, Charles Sauria of France developed a match that used white phosphorus.
