Hardik Pandya helped India to win the match

I am a huge fan of all rounder Hardik Pandya. Yesterday there was a one day cricket match between India and Australia. India won the toss and elected to bat first. Hoping to watch Indian batting , I sat infront of tv at 1.30 pm.


Soon match started. In just in half an hour , India were 11/3 !! I switched off t.v.

When I switched on , Hardik Pandya and Dhoni were batting. They were concentrating on getting single runs. Soon Pandya finished his 50. Then he started to hit 4s and 6s.

I am a fan of Hardik Pandya since the days of champion cricket trophy final match against Pakistan. In yesterday's match also, he batted well.

I didn't watch Australian batting as the match was halted because of rain interruption. I have read in the news paper that he bowled well and succeeded to take 2 wickets of Australia.

I have also read that he had hit 3 consecutive sixes. I didn't keep the count . But my admiration for Hardik Pandya got doubled now !

Rain due to depression at Arabian sea in udupi

Since last Friday night, it is raining in Udupi. This year, we , residents of udupi , didn't experience usual amount of rainfall during monsoon.

Now, it is the time of monsoon coming to an end in our area. But surprisingly , we are having rainfall NOW because of depression which is created in Arabian sea.


If this is going to repeat in coming days also , I pray to God to keep on bringing the depression in Arabian sea every time especially in the months March to May.


These are the months in a year where the temperature is in its highest level in udupi. If we get rain in these months , I can sleep well during nights without sweating !

Vitlapindi celebration in Udupi

September 13 was the day of Krishna janmashtami in udupi. The next day i.e. September 14 is the day of vitlapindi in udupi.

Yesterday I watched the vitlapindi programs live on t.v. thanks to our cable operator. I was speechless by watching the programs. Though I watch vitlapindi programs , I was watching only till the programs get over in Rajaangana , the place where the Krishna mutt people arrange the programs.



But yesterday , I was watching the programs held at Anna Vittala Vedike . These programs are sponsored by Shiroor Mutt Seer. The program started with Mara kaalu kunita meaning dancing with wooden leg tied to normal human leg.

 Then came different raakshasa vesha. These raakshasas got killed by Lord Sri Krishna in his childhood. Krishna used to play his divine plays called leela.  To remember that, people recreate his leela and enjoy.

How I can forget the famous huli vesha ? There were many teams present. These teams exhibit acrobatic exercises too. It is a delight to watch as they perform. What came as a surprise to me was someone had put the vesha of Kattappa from the movie baahubali !

There were some people who had put different veshas taking lots of trouble, to collect the money so that they can help the needy and poor people. Now that is celebrating the festival with a unique purpose.


Actors from Tulu cinema industry had graced the occasion. It was a lovely evening. I have to wait for next year to watch all these once again ......

Earthquake lights

A massive earth quake of the magnitude 8.2 had hit Mexico earlier this week. People reported saying that there were flashes of light on the sky . But these lights are the side effects of high magnitude earthquake and called earthquake lights .


We know that during an earthquake , there will be stress between the tectonic plates of earth. In certain types of rocks , like quartz  , this stress can break up pairs of negatively charged oxygen atoms on the ground  , allowing them to flow upto the surface as an electric current  through cracks in the rocks.


If enough atoms are present , they can ionize pockets of air and form a charged gas , that emits light . These are called earthquake lights .

Kapil Sharma Show is going to end.....

I am in huge disappointment. My favourite television show The Kapil Sharma Show is going to end. I know there are other comedy shows running on different television channels. But none can host the show like Kapil Sharma.

According to me, he is the great comedian. His comic timings are unbelievable. He finds comedy in silliest things of life. This has to be listened in his own words.

I am a big fan of kapil sharma since the days of comedy circus which was airing on Sony. Then he went to colors tv channel to host Comedy Nights With Kapil . I followed him sincerely.

Again he came back to Sony Entertainment Television. Me too ! Nowadays he is being unwell for several times. He had cancelled the shoot of his show many times.

Now he wants to take a break and rejuvenate his health and himself. But I am busy thinking how can I spend the weekends without watching his show. I am worried.

Why China agreed to call back its troops in Doklam?

Honestly, it is my own thinking. Since 2 months, there was a tension between the countries India and China regarding Doklam area ownership. Chinese media were threatening us saying that if we don't back off from Doklam which they claim theirs, war is unavoidable and China is going to win the war.




But suddenly yesterday, there was a report of China agreeing for calling back its troops from Doklam. I wondered why sudden change in their  stance?



Today I read on internet news that the mobile phone companies Oppo and Vivo are suffering huge losses in marketing their products in India.


I want to clarify that these are Chinese companies. Maybe people have realized that by buying the Chinese products, they are encouraging China in its evil work. Now it is a open secret that China is helping Pakistan military financially to fund the terrorist organizations who are waging war on India.


Even though people call it a diplomatic win for India , I strongly believe that China feared that it may lose a large market place like India if it goes on continuing its baseless and adamant stand on Doklam.


My conclusion -  - 

Everyone sees their own benefits .

First Indian queen to fight for freedom from British in India

This year we are celebrating 71st year of our independence  . Here is the article on first Indian queen who fought against British rulers.


Rani Velu Nachiyar was the queen of Shivaganga estate in India. She was the first queen to fight against British colonial power. She fought successfully with British in 1780 .

Rani Nachiyar was trained in war match weapons usage , horse riding and archery. She was a scholar in many languages too.

When her husband got killed by British soldiers , she was drawn into battle. She formed an army and sought alliance with other kings.

When Velu Nachiyar found the place where the British stored their ammunition , she arranged a suicide bomber attack.

A faithful follower of hers , doused herself in oil , set herself alight and walked into the storehouse. Thus ensuring victory for Velu Nachiyar.

Hardik Pandya hits maiden century in test

Today is the 2nd day of 3rd test against Sri Lankan cricket team. All rounder Hardik Pandya hits his maiden test century.

I watched Pandya's batting in the final match of champion trophy against Pakistan. He fought single handed. Though India lost the match, Pandya's effort was appreciated by everyone.

Now he has added one more feather to his cap. He scored 26 runs in a single over. Though I didn't watch the action played by him , I can imagine how he had batted in the test match thinking it as one more T20 cricket match !

Sand river

Recently I got a video of sand river in Iraq. But looking at the video, it didn't seem like sand flowing as I imagined by hearing the name " sand river ". I thought the pebbles looked more like  hail stones which happen during hailstorm in our area.


I was right! We know that Iraq is the country which hardly receive any rain. But due to global warming , last year there was a flood . In this case, there was a significant amount of hail stones which is also a frozen ice in the upstream side.


The illusion of sand river took place when these hail stones started flowing downstream side. It is not made of sand but made of hail stones which is nothing than frozen ice.

Liquid nitrogen

Recently there was a report that a Delhi man drank liquid nitrogen thinking that it will make him to feel high. But unfortunately he was left with a hole in his stomach.

I know nitrogen as a gas. We inhale it every day as the air surrounding us consists nitrogen gas in large part. But liquid nitrogen is different. People use it to instantly freeze the food and drinks.


If a person's body has a large amount of lactic acid , then taking or inhaling the liquid nitrogen results in oxygen deprivation.


It results in perforations inside the stomach. Usually small perforations can be sewed up. But in the above mentioned case, perforations are too large that it had created a hole in the stomach.

The reason for China's aggression on us

Nowadays there are reports saying that China blew fire on India. It is threatening us saying that history is in its favour as it has won the 1962 India -China war. Again and again China is threatening us saying the same thing.

I was curious to know what had happened in 1962 India and China war. As I was not there in 1962 ( ! ) , I asked my father about this war.

My father said that after independence, it was Nehru who sworn inn as prime minister of India. He saying that we are a peace loving country, he didn't pay attention to develop our armed forces.

China as cunning it was, knew our weakness. More over , Nehru had soft corner for communist countries. He didn't take China seriously which is our neighbour country.

As a result, China attacked us. We didn't have the ability to fight with China as we didn't have army itself. We lost the war. But that day and today, things have changed. Now we have a powerful armed forces with us. We are able to give a befitting reply to enemies if they try to challenge us.

Today is the Kargil Vijay Divas. Who knows better than Pakistan about our mighty military ? Pakistan has lost all the wars it has declared on us . It is better if China ask Pakistan what we can do if it try to attack on our territory .

Indian women cricket team is playing final match tomorrow....

Indian women cricket team is playing the final match of cricket world cup match tomorrow against England. I personally didn't watch the cricket match they played against Australia.

I read in news paper that Harman Preet Kaur smashed runs and India was able to restrict the Australian cricket team from reaching the target.

Tomorrow is the final match between India and England women cricket team. I am not having any plan of watching the cricket match.

Because I am terribly upset that comedian Kapil Sharma is hospitalised. I really like the show hosted by him by the name kapil sharma show.

I also like the character played by Kiku Sharda . It is Bachcha Yadav . I myself didn't know that I am so much addicted to the comedy show that now I am not in a mood to do anything.

My favourite songs till date

I am little late in finding the worth of these songs. But never late than never. The thing I most liked in these songs are they have the Punjabi words. These Punjabi words add little spice to the songs and make them peppy dance numbers.


That's the magic of Punjabi words in recent songs. I am listening to these songs since yesterday. Every time they make me fresh.

The songs are ------

1. Mercy by badshah

2. Main tera boyfriend from the movie Rabta

I want everyone to listen to these two songs and appreciate my taste !

Today India vs West Indies T20 cricket match


Today it is India vs West Indies T20 cricket match. But I am not going to watch. There is a big reason behind this.

One reason is that it is at 9 pm. It is the time I go to sleep. I wake up early in the morning. So I have to go to bed early to balance my sleep cycle.

The other reason is I am not still out from the shock Indian cricket team has given me in the final match of champion cricket trophy where India lost to Pakistan. All the matches are one side and India vs Pakistan on the other side. Don't you agree ?

What is China planning to do?

When I read on the newspaper report about growing tension in sikkim border , I was totally blank . All these days , I heard about the shadow war played by Pakistan in Jammu and Kashmir , I thought Pakistan is the only problematic neighbour country we have.

But now, even another neighbour country China has also joined the group. I didn't know that China can pose such a tension to us.

When China blocked our entry to NSG group , I thought it was doing all these because of Pakistan's friendship. The terrorists themselves now are agreeing that they are responsible for the terrorist attacks carried out in India , China is not believing that.

It is always a hurdle in declaring some terrorists as global threats . If I were the prime minister, I couldn't handle this much tension and I would go into depression.

It needs guts to be the prime minister of this country which has two problematic nations as neighbours. If China is successful in invading sikkim, then all communications between us and north eastern states will be cut off.

Then it is the same situation where traitors in JDU said bharat tere tukde honge. I am getting tensed. Now I will go and watch Chchota Bheem on Pogo !

What went wrong in final of champion trophy?

Still match is not over. Pakistan batted first and scored 348 . When I switched on tv , India are 22/2 !


 As I am having super natural power , I can make out India losing the match.

That's why now I am watching " the kapil Sharma show " airing on Sony Entertainment Television to keep myself calm !

There is some thing more than just winning the toss, like fielding and bowling . It all started with Bumrah bowling the first no ball of match .


I am switching off t.v.

India has reached the final of champion trophy

Yesterday was the cricket match between India and Bangladesh. I didn't watch the match.


Why ????

Why ????

After watching all the played matches in champion trophy , I have developed a super natural power. I can predict who is going to win the match before the start of the game.

It is very simple. All we need to do is to know who has won the toss. Whoever is winning the toss , he will surely opt to bowl first.

WHOEVER BOWL FIRST , THAT SIDE WILL WIN THE MATCH.

In the semi-final match between India and Bangladesh , India had won the toss and elected to bowl first. Result ---- India has won the match .

My advice to Kohli , Indian cricket team captain


Focus on winning the toss and always elect to field first.


If we win the toss and elect to field first , the final match between India and Pakistan will be won by India. The trophy will be ours !

Indian cricket team has entered the semi-final of champion trophy !

Yesterday was the quarter final of champion trophy. The match was between India and south africa. I had read the newspaper report saying that match is between the defending champion India and number one cricket team of one day cricket South Africa.

India has won the toss and decided to field first. I was not interested to watch the Indian fielding and bowling as I know how it was against Sri Lanka in previous match.

But when I switched on tv, South Africa were 154 / 6 ! I was alarmed by this knowing that I am missing the action , I started to watch the match . I was not disheartened . Soon South Africa lost all their wickets and ended up in 191 .


Soon India started chasing the target of 192. Indian openers Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma were on crease. They started pailing the runs. Sharma got out.

Then came my favourite virat kohli. Dhawan and Kohli both of them scored half centuries and India passed the milestone of 100 runs. By now , I was confident that India will reach the target successfully . So I went to sleep with a relaxed mind .

India decimated Pakistan in champion trophy

Yesterday was the day of India and Pakistan cricket match. I was eagerly awaiting for this match. Before the match , there was mind game played by Pakistani players.

Though they didn't played against India for so many years , Pakistani players were passing comments on Indian players saying that Indian players are not a threat to them. They can easily win against India.

Yesterday I got the answer. Though I was little sceptical about the Indian cricket team , as there were rumours that everything is not good between coach Kumble and captain Kohli .  But yesterday Indian players played a team game.

After losing the toss , India batted first . In  the beginning 9 overs , the openers didn't play much strokes . They were taking only singles. Then match was halted bcoz of rain . But when the match resumed ,they started playing shots .

Indian gaming side was such that all the batsmen who came to play except Hardik Pandya who came to crease as the last batsman  , scored half centuries . Finally India was able to score 319 .


I didn't watch the Pakistani batting , as it could be clearly seen that they were nervous and had dropped 2 easy catches . Finally , it is the catches that win the matches ! India won the game by huge margin of runs .

Punitive strikes by Indian army along LOC

Finally India has strike back. Indian army carried out strikes on Pakistani terror outposts backed by Pakistani army.


It is no longer a secret that Pakistan lovingly nurtures terrorist organizations along LOC. Pakistan military and government always aims at destabilizing India and Indian economy.

Now it has been proved that Pakistan is funding the separatists in Jammu and Kashmir. My question is can't they focus on Pakistan occupied Kashmir ( POK ) instead of our Kashmir ?

Why don't they ( Pakistan ) mind their own business instead of doing shadow wars on our country ? These punitive strikes must take place . But it is never late . Pakistan military has to learn a lesson , it will never forget .

Kangaroo court

Yesterday Kulbhushan Jadhav's legal trial was going on at the International Court of Justice ( ICJ) . Kulbhushan Jadhav is a retired Indian navy officer .

Our neighbour country Pakistan arrested him on the charges of spying . A trial was done in the military court of Pakistan ( like that they say ) , which was referred as Kangaroo court and it has announced death sentence to Jadhav .


Anyone can tell that Pakistan mistakenly did this job . Anyway Jadhav has got the justice as India moved to ICJ and now death sentence is halted till final decision .


I wondered what is a kangaroo court ?

Kangaroo court is an unofficial court held by a group of people in order to try someone , especially without good evidence , as guilty of crime or misdemeanour .


Pakistan military court is correctly referred as a kangaroo court as there is no evidence and also they are not providing consular access to Jadhav.


What is my thinking is they have ( Pakistan ) already executed Jadhav . Otherwise even Jadhav will face the same situation as Sarabjit Singh who got killed by fellow prisoners without any reason .

Anything can happen in the country like Pakistan where army is stronger than the government. The rogue country like Pakistan has the support of another rogue country China .

I don't think Pakistan will obey the order of ICJ .

Just now, I saw in news channel that cricketer Mohd kaif got trolled in Twitter for hailing ICJ verdict. Kaif is an Indian and he did the right thing. Patriotism don't have religion . Always nation first.


I just saw the reply given by mohd kaif to the troller who asked him to change his name from mohd. Kaif has given the befitting reply to troller. But what I wonder is the troller why he was following kaif ?

We Indians don't differentiate between the persons on religion. The troller must be a Pakistani . These are the ones who give money to stone pelters in Kashmir to attack the armed forces who are working to restore the peace in the valley.

Shame on them !

Punjabi songs of hindi movies

Last weekend , I heard the song ishq tadpave from the movie hindi medium . I liked it. But I wanted to hear the original song.


When I searched the web , I got the original version of song . It is sung by Sukbhir. The song started with bhangra tunes. It really makes one to get up and dance .


I heard the song move your luck baby from the movie noor . It is sung by my favourite singer badshah . I am the biggest fan of his singing from the days of abhi to party shuru hui hai.


Even this song tempts one to dance. Nowadays all the new hindi movies have at least one or more of Punjabi songs . Each and every song has become a chart bluster !

Don't lose heart

Raju is 10 year old . He is just like other children of his age . But he differs from them as he had lost his one arm in an accident.

But he continued his studies . He is the topper of his class . He is actively participating in every cultural activities of his school .

One day , he saw some boys of his own age playing the game of cricket in the playground . Even he wanted to play.

He went near the captain of team and expressed his wish . But captain made fun of him saying Raju is having only one arm , he can not do neither batting nor fielding which requires both arms .

Disheartened as he was , Raju sat in the corner of playground . The coach of team , had witnessed what had happened . He came near Raju .

Coach asked Raju how much serious is he regarding the game of cricket ? Raju replied though he is handicapped , he is not dependent on others .

Coach liked the positive attitude of Raju . He said since Raju has lost his one arm ,he can not do batting or fielding . But he can bowl.

Raju was very happy . Coach trained Raju as a bowler who can play googly . Now Raju has created his own records and now waiting for a call from national team selectors .

Why don't eyelashes grow long ?

The eyelash hair looks similar to head hair . But it don't grow long like head hair. Ever wondered why is it so?

The hairs on eyelashes and also eyebrows have a very short life span . They are programmed to grow only for a couple of months .

Unlike hair on head which grow for years , eyelashes fall off soon . This is the reason why don't they grow long as they are programmed to have their lifespan  short.

Moonbows

Moonbows =  Lunar Rainbows


This is the very simple explanation . We know how rainbows are formed . When sun's rays get reflected and refracted off the rain droplets , rainbows are formed .

Moonbows are similar to rainbows . They are formed by moon light instead of direct sunlight .


Moonbows are rare naturally occurring atmospheric phenomenon .

ನನ್ನ ತಳಮಳ

                                                ನನ್ನ  ತಳಮಳ 



ತಳಮಳವಾಗುತ್ತಿದೆ    ನನಗೆ  ,
ಇನ್ನೆಷ್ಟು  ದಿನ ಹೀಗೆ ?
 ನಾಲ್ಕು ಗೋಡೆಗಳ ಮಧ್ಯ ಬಂಧಿ ಆಗಿದ್ದೇನೆ
ಅರ್ಥ ಆಗುವುದಿಲ್ಲ ಯಾರಿಗೂ ನನ್ನ ಬೇನೆ  .


ಹತ್ತು ವರುಷದಿಂದ ಕಾಯುತ್ತಿರುವೆ ನಾನು
ಬಯಸಿದ ಭಾಗ್ಯದ ಸಿಗುವುದೆಂದು ಜೇನು ?
ಎರಡು ಹೆಜ್ಜೆ ಯಾರ ಸಹಾಯವಿಲ್ಲದೆ ಹಾಕಿದರೆ ಸಾಕು ನನಗೆ 
ಈಗ ಮಾಡುತ್ತಿರುವ ಔಷಧದ ಪರಿಣಾಮ ಮೂಡಿಸುವುದೇ ನಸುನಗೆ?

Roots of rasagulla !

Rasagulla is a sweet dish . It is round in shape . It is soaked in sugary syrup .

Roots of rasagulla sounds weird as rasagulla is not a fruit . But Tenali Rama managed to get the roots of it !

Once an Iranian traveller visited the court of King Sri Krishna Devaraya . King ordered for staying arrangement of traveller.

Next day morning King sent some rasagullas to traveller as a token of hospitality . Traveller ate those . Was truly pleased with sweetness of the dish . As it is round in shape , he had mistaken it for a fruit .

He thought if King gives the roots of fruit , he can return to his country with that and even there they can grow the fruit . His country men would relish the sweetness of fruit as he did !

Likewise , he requested the King for roots of rasagulla . Now King is in a fix . How can he get the roots of a sweet dish like rasagulla ?!

But he did not want to disappoint the tourist . King asked the help of Tenali Rama on this matter . Tenali Rama said by evening he will be present in the court with roots of rasagulla !

Everyone was waiting eagerly for evening . Tenali Rama returned to the court carrying a tray which was covered with a shawl . He greeted the King and said root of rasagulla is in the tray and he will show it only to the traveller .

Likewise , traveller came to court . He was given the tray having roots of rasagulla . He was happy by receiving that . He showed the root to everyone and thanked all of them .

But what was in the tray ?

Is biting of house spiders dangerous ?

No . Occasionally a house spider bites and if it does ,it is not likely to inject a human with venom because it would be biting out of defence and not trying to feed on a human prey .


But some tissue swelling is possible depending on the individual's response to spider bites .

Fire proof balloon !

Yesterday was science day. 


We know that balloons are very fragile . If a balloon is filled with air. then it has to be kept away from sharp objects and also from fire . Because a fire can weaken the rubber. of which balloon is made of , and cause it to burst.

Now in this experiment , our inflated balloon acts as fire proof ! This fire proof balloon experiment is very simple. All we need is two non inflated balloons , fire and water.


First take one balloon and fill it with air . Tie the mouth tightly. Now hold this balloon over fire. Balloon breaks.

WHY ?????




????


It is because of heat expansion . Now what is getting expanded ? Air inside the balloon.


Now take the other balloon. Fill it with little water and then fill it with air. Tie the mouth tightly . Now hold this balloon over fire. It will not break , how long the time is !!!




WHY ???????




??????




??????


Let me explain . This balloon is filled with air and water . As water is heavier than air. It settles at the bottom of balloon . So when we are heating it , water first starts to get heated . Remember. water is a good absorber of heat.


So, water absorbs all the heat  Thus  air will not get heat to expand . That's why the balloon acts fire proof.

Food that doesn't get spoiled

Yesterday I was reading a book , there I came across this fact that HONEY is the only food that doesn't get spoiled. I kept on thinking how much is it true ?

Then I figured out that anything with low moisture content will resist spoiling ( not only honey ) .

According to my theory , nowadays nothing will get spoiled if we keep it inside refrigerator !

I know many of readers must have thought the same too as soon as they read the title !

Law of conservation of energy in bouncing ball

The law of conservation of energy states that energy can not be created nor destroyed . It can just be transformed or transferred from one form to another . That means the amount of energy exist on this earth is always the same .


Taking the example of a dropped ball , when the ball is in the air , it has gravitational potential energy . When the ball is released , its potential energy is transformed into kinetic energy .

When the ball hits the ground , it becomes deformed and gains potential energy once again and bounces and again its potential energy is converted into kinetic energy .

I had always wondered why is the height of the bounces , the ball experiance is lower than the previous ones ?

The energy transformation is not just between potential and kinetic energy . As I said , when dropped , it hits the ground . It always makes a sound . It also has to face air resistance . Hence friction force also comes to picture .

Because of all these factors , the new potential energy which it will gain after hitting ground is comparatively lower than its earlier " rest " position .

Hence the height of bounce will go on reducing . Finally , when all the potential energy contained in it becomes zero , it will stop bouncing and comes to stand still position.

Why can't we see through fog?

In winter season, when fog falls out on our surrounding areas. We see a white- out instead of being able to make out the things.



Why is it so ?


As light travels through air , it runs across everything which comes in its path. Atoms and molecules, dust and smoke everything scatter light. Water droplets as they are present in fog , scatter light to a great extent.


Because of this scattering, our eyes fail to gather any useful information out of this. That's why we can't look through fog.

Kaikeyi ( Bhadraa ) , wife of lord Krishna

What a match !

By this time, everyone must have realized about which match I am talking about. Yes , I am talking about yesterday's cricket match between India and England . It was a 50 over match.




First , I say what i did yesterday. First I found out who is going to bat first . It was England . So I decided to watch end part of batting of English people just to know the target they are giving India to chase . But by watching the final overs , my head got reeled . Because the target was 350 !





I continued watching ..... India started chasing. Soon ,the score was 63/ 4 ! Target is 350 . I visualized India losing the match. I switched off t.v. .




When I switched on tv , Kohli and Kedar Jadhav were playing . All 6's and 4's. I realised I am missing the action by not watching tv .



Then Hardik Pandya , Ravindra Jadeja and Ashwin played superbly . Finally it was Ashwin who finished the match by striking a 6 .



India chased the total of 350 successfully and won the match . I patted my back for taking the right decision to watch the tv at right time !

How do ants smell ?

Wherever we keep sweets , ants will soon find out the location .

Ants have a poor eyesight. They use their antennae to smell and also for communication.

They release a chemical called pheromone which has different smells. This help them to trace their way back , recognizing between friends and foes .

The ant's sensors are located in their antennae. The antennae are covered with hair like structures , which are the receptors for senses.

Once an ant finds a food source , it leave a pheromone tail as it makes its way back to the nest . The other ants will trace the way until the food source is located.

All ants will not use the same pheromone scent to locate the food. The scent is unique for each ant's nest . By this way , other ants from the same nest locate the food.

Example of cruelty

There is a tribal group in America . They live by hunting animals . But here lies a speciality . If they want to hunt wolves , tribals are not going after them , wolves are coming near them . !

How ????


????

?????

First they apply blood of an animal which is already dead , to their swords which are freshly sharpened . After this , they tie the sword to branch of a near by tree .

Now wolves get attracted by the smell of blood . They come in search of source . They see the blood applied sword .

Without thinking , they come near the sword and start licking it . They continue licking , till all the applied blood stains are gone .

But they will not stop . They continue licking . Now , the blood they are tasting is their own ! ( since their tongue gets hurt by licking the sharpened sword ) .

Soon , they start feeling weak by continuos discharge of blood . Finally , they lay flat on the ground .

That time , tribals come out of their hide outs and kill the already weak wolf .

The wolf has invited its own death by itself .

Why does a lamp burns brighter before it dies off ?

This question was inspired by a Tulu saying .

Tulu Saying ---

Tekkuna deepagu bolpu jaasti

ತೆಕ್ಕುನ ದೀಪಗು ಬೊಲ್ಪು ಜಾಸ್ತಿ . 


Translation ----

tekkuna deepa = ತೆಕ್ಕುನ ದೀಪ  = lamp which is going to die off / exhaust / blew off
bolpu = ಬೊಲ್ಪು  = light
jaasti = ಜಾಸ್ತಿ  = more

Summary ----

This saying states that the lamp / fire which is about to exhaust / die off gives looks more bright than usual . The light emitting by it is more in brightness compared to early stage.


The scientific explanation goes like this --------

When the fire is in its last stage , it has almost completely consumed the remaining air in its area. Air carries not only oxygen which will act as an oxidising agent , but also moisture.

If the fire is in a stage where there is less air for it to use , then it implies that there are less water droplets ( moisture ) too  .This makes the fire to gain heat .

This heat will energise the electrons . Hotter electrons will emit more light . Hence a lamp burns brighter before it dies off .
