*🇮🇳Facts about India🇮🇳*

The name Jammu is derived from its ruler who founded it. Raja Jambulochan founded this city in 14th BC and named it Jambupur which later changed to Jammu. … Jammu has historically been the capital of Jammu Province and the winter capital of the erstwhile Jammu and Kashmir princely state(1846–1952).

According to folk etymology, the name “Kashmir” means “desiccated land” (from the Sanskrit: Ka = water and shimeera = desiccate {completely dry} ). In the Rajatarangini, a history of Kashmir written by Kalhana in the mid-12th century, it is stated that the valley of Kashmir was formerly a lake.

*Thought of the day*

 Life is like a novel and every day is a page.  If page is sad the next will become happy…  So don’t worry turn the next page and enjoy your life.        

*Joke of the day*

 *पत्नी* – आजकल तुम घर जल्दी आ जाया करो, 

हमारे मोहल्ले में बहुत चोरियां होने लगी हैं!

 *पति* – अब क्या चोरी हो गया?

 *पत्नी* – वहीं तौलिया जो हम शिमला के होटल से 

चोरी करके लाये थे…!!! 🤪


 *Why are the days longer in summer and shorter in winter?* 

As the Earth circles the Sun during the year in its own axis, half of the Earth get more or less sunlight than the other half of the Earth. In the summer months, the northern half of the Earth, where we live, tilts towards the Sun. This means we get more sunlight, making the days longer.

  *How it works* ⚙️⁉

A transformer ️is an electrical apparatus designed to convert alternating current from one voltage to another. It can be designed to “step up” or “step down” voltages and works on the magnetic induction principle. 

So there has to some way of reducing the high voltage electricity from power plants to the lower voltage electricity used by factories, offices, and homes. The piece of equipment that does this, humming with electromagnetic energy as it goes, is called a transformer

Transformer is an electrical apparatus designed to convert alternating current from one voltage to another. It can be designed to “step up” or “step down” voltages and works on 

the magnetic induction principle. A transformer has no moving parts and is a completely 

static solid state device, which insures, under normal operating conditions, a long and 

trouble-free life. It consists, in its simplest form, of two or more coils of insulated wire 

wound on a laminated steel core. When voltage is introduced to one coil, called the 

primary, it magnetizes the iron core. A voltage is then induced in the other coil, called the 

 secondary or output coil. The change of voltage (or voltage ratio) between the primary 

and secondary depends on the turns ratio of the two coils.

Measuring units

Voltage    *Volt* . (V = I × R)

Current – *Ampere* (I=V ÷ R)

Resistance  *Ohm*  (R = V ÷ I)

Power *Watts* (P = V × I)

Frequency   *Hertz* 

Charge         *Coulomb* 


 *Jaya* and *Vijaya* are the two gatekeepers (Dwarapalaka) of the abode of Vishnu, known as Vaikuntha

According to a story from Bhagavata Purana, the Four Kumaras, Sanaka, Sanandana, Sanatana, and Sanatkumara who are the manasputras of Brahma (sons born from the mind or thought power of Brahma), visited Vaikuntha, 

 Jaya and Vijaya, the gatekeepers of the Vaikuntha interrupt the Kumaras at the gate. 

 The enraged Kumaras  cursed both the keepers Jaya and Vijaya, that they would have to give up their divinity, be born as mortals on bhuloka (earth), and live like normal human beings. Vishnu appeared before them, and the gatekeepers requested Vishnu to lift the curse of the Kumaras. Vishnu said that the curse of the Kumaras cannot be reversed. Instead, he gives Jaya and Vijaya two options. The first option is to take seven births on Earth as a devotee of Vishnu, while the second is to take three births as his enemy. Both choose second option to complete the curse as soon as possible and return the Vaikunta.


( *Note* : These home tips followed in villages/ancient traditions, it is up to you to use it or not🏻)

 *Paronychia* is an infection of the skin around a fingernail or toenail. The infected area can get swollen, red, and painful. Sometimes a pus-filled blister may form. Most of the time, paronychia is no big deal and can be treated at home. 

1. Blend one part of white vinegar with two parts of warm water. Soak the infected nail in this solution for 10 to 15 minutes. Wash and dry thoroughly. Repeat this procedure twice daily, till the fungus is gone.

2. Take some betel (Tulasi) leaves. Grind them to make a paste. Apply this paste to the affected area. Tie a clean and dry cotton cloth around the affected area. Repeat this procedure daily for a week.

Above mentioned home remedies may take few weeks to treat paronychia so be patient. They are inexpensive and readily available. If none of those mentioned above remedies helps you, please consult your doctor immediately. Remember, if it is not treated timely it may result in complete or partial loss of the nail
