 Girl : When we get married, I want to share all your worries, troubles and lighten your burden.

 Girl : Well that is because we aren’t married yet.


Why should one not sleep under the trees at night.

During the day, in presence of sunlight, the plants use up the CO2 and release O2 in the process of photosynthesis. But during night, plants won’t perform photosynthesis so they are unable to use the CO2 and this further leads to increase in the proportion of CO2 in the air. During night the trees breathe in oxygen and release CO2. If one sleeps under the trees, the amount of increased CO2 in the air around will certainly affect the health. So it is inadvisable to sleep under trees during night.

 why bats cannot see in day & why they fly in night only 🦇

Compared to other animals eye lens bats have wide open lens which allows light to pass in and therefore it cannot see things clearly in the daylight.. whereas in the night it allows ample light and their vision become so clear compared to other animals. Also they have echolocating capabilities thus it makes them wonderful hunters. Insects are available all times not only in the night time… So this is the reason behind the night fly…

meaning they use echoes of self-produced sounds bouncing off objects to help them navigate. But that doesn’t mean that bats can’t see.

Contrary to myth, bats aren’t blind. In fact, research shows that depending on the circumstances, bats sometimes prefer using eyesight to sound when hunting. And many fruit bats, which drink nectar rather than hunt insects, don’t echolocate at all. These species have particularly sharp vision, and some can even see ultraviolet light.

Once upon a time Lord Vishnu and Goddess Lakhmi were having conversation in heaven andGoddess Lakshmi was praising herself and telling Lord Vishnu that she is the most worship worthy in the world and by her grace, a person can get all the pleasures of this world and becomes happiest person. By hearing the self praising by Goddess Laksmi, Lord Vishnu said to her for reducing her ego, “You are having all the qualities, still you did not feel the joy of motherhood till now and for a lady, the motherhood joy is the most important thing in this universe.” The comment from Lord Vishnu made Goddess Lakhmi become disheartened and in this pain she went to her friend Goddess Parvati. After listing the problem of Goddess Lakhmi, Parvati asked her, “How can I help you?” Goddess Lakshmi said, “You are having two sons and if you could give me your one son you will still have one son and I could get the grace of motherhood. So, in this situation you can help me out.”

A story from Hindu mythology says that Lakshmi adopted Ganesha from his mother Parvati because the former was childless. Out of her love for Ganesha, Lakshmi declared that all her luxury, prosperity and accomplishments is Ganesh’s as well
