Pappu : what is the name of your car?

Frnd : i forgot the name, but is starts with ‘t’.🙄🤔

Pappu : oh, what a strange car, starts with tea. all cars that i know start with petrol..🤔😳🙄🤷🏻‍♂️

😳 WHY❓❓❓

How we woke correct time in the morning. How our age brings changes in our physical appearance…How It happens 🤔

It is because of Biological clock⏰ that we have in our mind. Biological clocks are an organism’s innate timing device. They’re composed of specific molecules (proteins) that interact in cells throughout the body. Biological clocks are found in nearly every tissue and organ.

The circadian biological clock is controlled by a part of the brain called the Suprachiasmatic Nucleus (SCN), a group of cells in the hypothalamus that respond to light and dark signals. From the optic nerve of the eye, light travels to the SCN, signaling the internal clock that it is time to be awake.

It is the program that limits the lifespan of an individual. Circadian clock, a molecular mechanism that results in a circadian rhythm in a living organism. Circadian rhythm, biological process that displays an oscillation about 24 hours, such as the human sleep-wake cycle (the “body clock”), mensuration process in women.

Biological clocks are an organism’s innate timing device. They’re composed of specific molecules (proteins) that interact in cells throughout the body. Biological clocks are found in nearly every tissue and organ. Researchers have identified similar genes in people, fruit flies, mice, fungi, and several other organisms that are responsible for making the clock’s components.

How rock salt forms

The scientific name for rock salt is Halite , and its chemical formula is NaCl or sodium chlorine. Table salt is also made from rock salt, which is a naturally occurring mineral often found in large deposits near the surface of the earth.


Rock salt is found in old ocean sea beds that have long ago dried up. The compound originates from a body of sea water that undergoes an intense evaporation process, leaving behind large rings of sea salt. Then through the long process of geologic aging, the salt layers are covered with marine sediments.

A story behind Garlic and Onions, why they are not been used by Vaishnavas 🧅🧄

According to Vishnu Purana, Devas and the asuras jointly churned Kshirabdhi (Milky Ocean) wherefrom emerged Dhanvantari with the Amrtakumbha (pot of nectar).

But an asura mayavi (magician) called Saimhikeya absconded to Patala with the Amrtakumbha which nobody noticed as everybody was busy with dividing other divine objects. Only after the mayavi’s disappearance was it noticed that the Amrtakumbha was missing. At once Mahavisnu assumed the figure of a beautiful woman, got back the Kumbha and gave it to the devas. The devas began drinking the amrta when, at the instance of some other devas, Saimhikeya, the mayavi, assuming the form of an old Brahmin reached svarga, (Heaven) got a share of the amrta and began to drink it. Surya and Candra (Sun and Moon) who were on guard at the gates divined the secret of the ‘old Brahmin’ and informed Mahavishnu about it. Shri Vishnu immediately cut the throat of the pseudo-Brahmin with his Sudarshana Chakra. But, half of the nectar he had drunk stayed above the throat and the other half below it. Therefore, though the head and the trunk were severed they remained alive. These two parts, in course of time, evolved as Rahu and Ketu

When the throat was cut some blood dropped on the ground, and became the red onion and the white onion (garlic) respectively. So both onion and garlic originated from the throat and blood of the demons or asuras, thus their consumption brings us closer to tamo guna (mode of ignorance) which characterizes the nature of the demons and thus is detrimental to bhakti.

There are different reasons according to Vedic Sanatan Dharma
Garlic, onion and carrot increase rajas, especially sexual desire. Not good for spiritual life.

There are 3 types of foods in Hindu and Jain scientific understanding.

They are –
Rajasic, and sathwick.

Tamasic foods encourage sloth, dullness, and sexual arousal.

Rock salt provides all the essential trace minerals and greatly improves the body’s immune system,” It fights harmful bacteria and helps kick illnesses to the curb. “Rock salt is beneficial for people suffering from respiratory problems and sinus.

Rock salt is used as a condiment and preservative in Indian cuisine, especially during fasting days. It adds a great flavour to chaats, chutneys, raitas and many other savoury Indian snacks and vegetable preparations. Its coarse texture makes it easy to pick up and sprinkle on food during or after cooking.

Hence, too less or too much of salt can be dangerous for health and adding the right amount of salt is important. For an average adult daily salt intake should be approximately around 2,300 mg per day. However, in the case of high blood pressure, the ideal intake should be 1,500 mg per day.
