Joke of the day

पत्निः हॅलो कहाँ हो?
पतिः पिछली दिपावली हम ज्वेलरी के दुकान गये थे ना जहाँ तुमने एक हार पसंद किया था।
पत्निः हाँ!
पतिः ओर उस टाइम मेरे पास पैसे नहीँ थे
पत्नि खुशी सेः हाँ याद है।
पतिः ओर मेने कहा था की ये हार एक दिन मे तुम्हे लेके दुँगा।
पत्नी ओर ज्यादा खुशी सेः हाँ हाँ बहुत अच्छी तरह से याद है।
पतिः तो बस उसी की बगल वाली दुकान मे बाल कटवा रहा हुँ! थोङा लेट आउंगा…


Why can’t chickens🐓🐥 fly?

Chickens actually CAN fly! However, they are not very good at it. Their small wings allow them to fly for only a moment. They do not have very large wings compared to their body. This means they can’t produce enough lift to overcome their weight!

Meaning of Shivalinga

As the Shiva Puran states, the universe consists of bindu (Singularity, a dot) and Nada (the sound that pervades into eternity). In other words, bindu is immovable, fixed and hence Purush. Nada is movable, all pervading and hence Prakriti. Shiva is Bindu. Kali is Nada

From the fusion of bindu and nada is born the universe (this sounded roughly similar as the big bang theory, where the idea is that universe originated from Singularity). The idea of bindu and nada is depicted by union of lingam and Yoni. As Kali, who is Prakriti, sits upon Shiva and the union of lingam and Yoni happens, Shiva becomes Bhagvan. Bhaga means Yoni and one who fuses into Yoni is Bhagavan or Bharga.

Just as the fusion of lingam (phallus) into Yoni (vagina) gives a spark to life in human context, fusion of bindu and nada gives a spark to creation of brahmaand in universal context.

It is a symbol of Shiva and Shakti, bindu and nada, Purush and Prakriti.

Thus, we worship this eternal symbol of Shiva and Shakti because it symbolically depicts the creation, at both, literal and symbolic level.

🤔 How …….. ⁉

How color of an LED determines?

The material used in the semiconducting element of an LED determines its color. The two main types of LEDs presently used for lighting systems are aluminum gallium indium phosphide (AlGaInP, sometimes rearranged as AlInGaP) alloys for red, orange and yellow LEDs; and indium gallium nitride (InGaN) alloys for green, blue and white LEDs. Slight changes in the composition of these alloys changes the color of the emitted light.
