😳 Why❓❓❓

why we feel cool in winter

If you mean why are winters in the northern hemisphere colder when Earth is closer to the Sun it’s because the Sun is lower in the sky and the Sun’s rays are at an angle, so we receive less light and heat. Regions of earth are colder in the winter because the tilt of the earth causes the sunlight to be spread over a larger area and therefore be weaker per unit area in these regions

At the same time it is winter in the northern hemisphere it is summer in the southern hemisphere.

During winters the outside temperature is below our blood temperature and so the body tries to maintain the blood temp to 37 degrees so we feel cold.

How ATM card work

When you insert our debit or credit card into the ATM, it reads the information encoded on the magnetic strip on the back of the card. … our card is basically a hard copy of the access information to your account. The ATM then asks for your PIN to verify your authorization to access account funds and information.

A magnetic stripe card is a type of card capable of storing data by modifying the magnetism of tiny iron-based magnetic particles on a band of magnetic material on the card. The magnetic stripe, sometimes called swipe card.

The first and second tracks in the magnetic stripe are encoded with information about the cardholder’s account, such as their credit card number, full name, the card’s expiration date and the country code. Additional information can be stored in the third track. When the data is confirmed..Then it asks for password..After giving the password..It will be decoded and will give access to do further transaction.

Why Datura is used in Shiv Puja

Dhatura flower is one of God Shiva’s favourite flowers. According to Vamana Purana, Datura is believed to have appeared from the chest of Lord Shiva when he drank the poison that was churned out of the cosmic ocean by the Devas and Asuras, for the welfare of the world. Therefore, Datura is offered to Lord Shiva to get rid of the poison of envy, ego, rivalry, foul language and wicked nature so that one is fully cleansed of all his sins and becomes pure.

Note : Dhatura is extemely poisonous if consumed. The skill of extracting the right concoction is artisanal and some believe that it is lost in history. So, please do not try consuming any part of the plant.
