Now charging cell phone with food??? Seriously!!! Smart phones are most important for us maybe for some people more than oxygen.. Everytime everywhere Just phone phone and phone… Maybe getting a charger with meal box is a good technology but in my perception at least avoid it’s use while eating… Give your time to other things also….
So curry is food of our ancestors but in Rajasthani culture curry is not made from abuergine it’s something different… Made from flour of grams.. Our India has too much varieties in food so maybe different names of dishes in different cultures…
me too Rubeena!!
I agree I hate when people pee in the swimming pool too Rubeena!!!!
Panama canal is important for trade.. indeginioius people are using drones to save rain forest that’s really good.. Hope that they will achieve success.. Nature is for us we should protect it or least help those people who are working hard to save it…
Weather has impact on all most everything and mostly I think on the mood of people.. Too much summer raise the temperature of mind of people also and a rainy season makes us happy..
Ohh so napping is good for our better performance.. I hope teachers would understand if a student napps during class.. After all we are improving our skills.. Hehe..
Only onions can make us cry on it’s death.. It’s a chemical that makes us cry syn-propenthial -S-oxide.. But it’s structure is very fascinating just like cabbage layer than layer than again layer and so on.. chewing a chewingum can also prevent tears while chopping onions..
I wish I could enjoy at beach in this bloody hot summer… But unfortunately no beach here.. But I will definitely enjoy one day!!!!
Shia Sunni all are apart first we need to understand that we all are human… Religion in our lives is to make our selves better a good human being.. When we believe in God our conscience stops us to do something immoral.. Every religion is good all teaches about humanity.. We should respect all the religions and if we can’t respect than don’t even disrespect… We are living in a secular nation were are free to follow we believe… Violence is not because of religion it’s because of wrong politics….
Teachers are like candle for us who give light in our lives…. In India people consider teacher as God because it’s the teacher who told us about God… Except teacher’s day “GURU PURNIMA” is also a festival dedicated to teachers… This article was about 6 digits salary for a teacher but here in private school it’s just 4 digits.. Hope it will increase very soon…
OMG!!! I just hate it when people pee in the swimming pool.. Seriously guys at least think about others.. And it causes itching in eyes.. Make pool clean…
