Last year, our school visited the Deegha Beach among other places. The Deegha Beach is situated in Midnapore district in West Bengal on the Bay of Bengal, about 300 km from Kolkata. We took night bus from Kolkata. It started at 10 o'clock. Our teacher took the seat near the door while we all sat behind. We sang songs, cracked jokes and talked to enjoy ourselves. We all fell asleep at about 12 o'clock while the bus drove at its normal speed in the stillness of night.                                   Our bus reached the Deegha Beach as early as 4 o'clock. We hurriedly hired a hotel room and left our luggage there. Then we all hurried to the beach in the dark of early morning. We hurried because we wanted to see the sunrise. The beach more...

There are a number of situations in which you might want to be able to see in the dark, but it was for military purposes that night vision goggles were originally developed by American Wiliam Spicer in 1942. In later years, cameras on the goggles would take tiny amounts of light and amplify it, producing a gray or green, albeit fuzzy, image of what was happening. Alternatively, in. pitch black, where there was no light to amplify, infrared sensors showed the heat coming off things, enabling you to see everything in colors that depended on the degree of heat. A big problem with a night-vision world represented in gray or green is that distances are hard to judge. Without the range of colors that are seen in daylight, grayish objects can be hard to distinguish from a background of similar color. The Dutch military approached the TNO research team led more...

“At the time I little realized the extent to which the food business might develop in Battle CreeK.” Will Keith Kellogg Cornflakes were invented by accident in 1894 by John Harvey Kellogg (1852-1943) and his brother Will Keith Kellogg (1860-1951). A group of Seventh Day. Adventists, including the Kellogg brothers, were trying to develop new foods to conform to a strict vegan diet, in the belief that this was beneficial to health. As the superintendent of the Battle Creek Sanatorium, a hospital and health spa for wealthy customers, John Kellogg tested out the foods on his guests. Grains of all kinds were known to be nutritious. On one occasion, the Kellogg brothers left some cooked wheat to attend to something else, and when they returned the wheat had dried out. Not wanting to waste it, they pressed the wheat with rollers to try and make flat dough. But the grains more...

In an age when everything seems to have gone topsy turvy  when everyone seems to run after some monetary achievement, no one can deny the importance of moral education. It is the only way out to keep control that they find themselves unable to differentiate between right and wrong. Moral education will enable them to go on the right path forgetting all those which are not at all desirable.  What is moral education after all ? It can be anything which teaches a person moral values and virtue. Values arc the set of guidelines that a human being learns to follow.  Nobody is born with moral content in him." It is inculcated in him by his education and experience of life. Hence, it is necessary to teach moral values from the very beginning of the childhood. We all pick up morals throughout our life, but it is the education that more...

Now a days plastic money in the form of cards taking place of currency. At present there are at least three million cards in use with estimated annual billing, Rs. 5000 crores.  No one can deny the importance and advantages of credit cards. If we ask people whether credit cards are a necessity or a luxury and most would probably term them a necessity these days. Credit cards are considered a boon for the ready convenience they confer on the user- you don't have to worry about carrying enough cash when you go shopping or to a restaurant. Just flash your card, sign and walk out. Thus the age of plastic money has finally come to India. The credit card has become a matter of status.   There are various categories of credit cards. The category, we are assigned, depends on our annual income and  frequency of usage. Generally it more...

Everyone in this world has his own likes and dislikes. So is the case with choosing one's profession There are many professions to choose from. But most of people have got some pet profession that they like most. In the childhood, everyone talks of becoming a barrister, a doctor or an engineer but some like to become politicians, statesmen, officers in army, navy and air force. It is quite difficult to choose a profession. Upon a profession depends the whole life of a man and so one must have an aim in his life. An aimless life is just like a boat or a ship that is not aware of its destination or is a letter without an address. Hence, there arises the necessity of choosing a profession. Although I am not fit enough at this age to choose a profession, yet I would like to take up teaching as more...
