Tibetians knew the medicinal value of Yarsa Gumba from last 1500 years .The Tibetians Shepherds used to leave old animals into the jungle. After some days they saw that the animals they left in jungle have become more active, even some of them have stared reproducing.The fact that the animals have become younger made the natives curious. So they chased the animals in jungle & finally they found that these animals used to consume the herb Yarsa Gumba. This made the natives realize the importance of this herb which they used to sell at very low prices to Chinese people.Thus Yarsa Gumba can be rightly said as boon to mankind.
A human ear cannot distinguish between two sounds if they are heard within an interval of 1/10 of a second.Therefore echo can be heard only if the reflected sound reaches the ear at least 1/10 of a second after the direct sound is heard.The velocity of sound in air at ordinary temperature is about 340 m/s.It is obvious that the sound should reach the ears after it covers a minimum distance of 340 X 1/10 = 34 Metre.In other words echo is heard only if the reflecting surface is at a distance greater than 17 Metre.
Thus the minute observations of K. Asif is the main reason of success of legendary Movie Mughal-E-Azam

Soon they met another group. " Look at that! Poor little boy has to walk while his father rides the donkey” . This time, Mulla climbed onto the donkey behind his son. Soon they met another group, who said, " Look at that poor donkey! He has to carry the weight of two people " . Mulla then told his son, " The best thing is for us to walk and lead the donkey. Then no one can complain ” So, they continued their journey on foot. Again, they met some others who said: “Just take a look at those fools. Both of them are walking under this hot sun and neither of them is riding the donkey ". In exasperation,Mulla lifted the donkey onto his shoulders and said," Come on, if we don’t do this, it will be impossible to make people stop talking "

Henry Becquerel had kept a photographic plate in his desk.The plate was wrapped with thick black paper to prevent its exposure to light.By chance he kept the Uranium salt on the plate for two days.Then when he developed photographic plate , he found that the plate was affected.As there was no other light to affect the photographic plate he concluded that the Uranium salt must have emitted invisible radiation which was capable of penetrating through thick black paper to reach the photographic plate.
This property was later given the name Radioactivity by Madam Curie who found that Thorium also possesses the same property

The dolls which are manufactured to calm down mourning parents have tiny veins , beating heart , hairs & many more features of living human baby. Some manufactures of these dolls also make dolls which appear exactly as the baby who expired so that the mourning parents will feel that they are holding their child.Such dolls are becoming trend in UK & other countries.Although these dolls are made to help parents to overcome their grief but it is also possible that parents may not be able to come out of their sorrows because such dolls may constantly remind them of their lost baby.
The human baby replicas designed for teenagers are known as REAL CARE BABIES . In order to prevent teenage pregnancy these dolls are designed . Teenagers from Chihuahua in Mexico are made to take care of screaming , hiccuping baby dolls which run on computer chips.The teenagers have to feed the dolls , have to slap on the back so they burp & do every thing as we do with live babies.The aim behind this is to make teenagers realize the consequences of becoming parents at young age & there by reducing the rate of teenage pregnancy.The teenagers get horrified at the amount of work involved in looking after a baby. REAL CARE BABIES are available in USA , UK & many other European countries.

The anomalous behavior of water plays an important role in the survival of aquatic animals & plants in cold countries.During winter season as the temperature decreases water at the surface of lakes, rivers, sea etc start contracting . As the water contracts it's density increases & it sinks to the bottom.This process continues until the temperature of all the water in a lake or river falls to 4 degree C .Thereafter as the water at the surface cools below 4 degree C it expands instead of contracting & consequently it's density decreases , as a result it remains on the surface of lake or river.The temperature of water in the surface goes on decreasing to 0 degree C & finally is converted into ice, while the water below the ice continues to remain at 4 degree C. As water remains at 4 degree C, fish & other aquatic animals remain alive.
The Proboscis monkey has a characteristic pendulous nose , a typically pot belly & they produce strange honking sounds.Within the Proboscis monkey species the male and female are distinguished by the size of the body and the nose. The male is bigger than the female and the nose is more pointed. Females do not have this characteristic. Female and the young proboscis monkey have shorter nose which is turned up at the end.

Proboscis Monkey are prominently vegetarian ,they are excellent swimmers are good in leaping from one tree to another.A single male Proboscis monkey lives with several female monkeys & reproduction is not seasonal it is throughout the year.

As Sooth putra his mother was a widow , she used to clean roads etc & he used to help his mother in doing the work.Once a group of saints came in their village.

As an obedient son, Sooth putra went and started doing things for the saints .He use to clean their vessels , floors & used to make beds of saints in night.
One day after seeing his dedication & sincerity towards work , One saint asked sooth putra ( Naarad Muni ) to eat some left over food of Priests. Sooth putra happily ate the left over food .As soon as he ate the food his attitude towards world completely changed . Now he was no longer interested in worldly desires.When the Saints started leaving the village Sooth putra insisted the saints to take him along with them but as his mother started crying the priests refused to take him along with them . In fact the priests suggested Sooth putra to remain with her mother & serve her.
Sooth putra obeyed what saints told him to do but still he was not interested in worldly desires, when he grew up her mother pleaded him to get married however he refused to marry.One day when his mother went in Jungle to gather wood , she died because of Snake bite.
