Thrown by the public, plastic bags are one of the most commonly found garbage items on the sea beaches.

How can students help save the environment

Over the years, global warming has led to geologically significant conditions and processes with damaging implications. The space for wildlife is shrinking rapidly, forest cover is getting eroded and species are facing extinction. Carbon dioxide, methane and other greenhouse levels in the atmosphere are rising threateningly. The ocean is filled with plastic, suffocating the habitat of marine creatures with harmful chemicals, which have, in turn, made seafood unhealthy for consumption. Worse, seawater contamination results in the deaths of over 1 million seabirds and 100,000 sea mammals every year. Students have a crucial role to play to help save the...

Who was the first king of India

The great ruler Chandragupta Maurya, who founded Maurya Dynasty was indisputably the first king of India, as he not only won almost all the fragmented kingdoms in ancient India but also combined them into a large empire, boundaries of which were even extended to Afghanistan and towards the edge of Persia. Chandragupta Maurya was born around 340BC in Patliputra in Magadh, the region which is currently known as Bihar. He was only 20 years old when he founded the Maurya Dynasty in Magadh with the help of great economist, scholar, philosopher, and a learned Brahmin Chanakya. In fact, it was Chanakya who discovered Chandragupta Maurya in Vinjha Forest. Chanakya wanted to take revenge from Dhana Nand, the King of the then ruling Nanda Dynasty of Magadh. Chanakya was in the search of a young warrior who could help him eliminate the Nanda Empire as the King Dhana Nand had once insulted him badly due to his ugly looks. On his orders, the soldiers of Dhana Nand had even forcefully thrown Chanakya out of his assembly. To fulfill his aim, Chanakya mentored and trained Chandragupta Maurya in different war skills. Simultaneously he also taught him humanities, crafts and all the political lessons required for becoming a powerful ruler. Later in the year 322 BC, Chandragupta Maurya successfully raised a strong army with the help of Chanakya and eliminated the empire of Dhana...

Know Who All Ruled India

Since ancient times, India has remained under the international spotlight, due to its immense wealth, spices, gold and an enormous expanse of natural resources, that’s why India was known as Golden Bird or Sone Ki Chidiya at one point of time. And to exploit its seamless wealth the country has been time and again invaded and ruled by numerous dynasties which include Sakas, Kushanas, Huns, Afghans, Turks, Khiljis, Lodhis and Mughals to the Britishers. Even, Alexander- the great ruler of the ancient Greek kingdom also voyaged across several miles along with a huge army of Yavans in 326BC to invade India. However, his impressive winning streak finally met with an unfortunate end at the Hydaspas River were the most powerful King Porus of Paurava Kingdom (spanned across the current Punjab region) engaged him in a bloody battle and pushed him back. Overall, if we take a peek into the vast history of the rulers of India, we observe that India has witnessed the rule of several smaller kingdoms, while the power centers, mostly remained divided among the rulers of Magadha and Southern India. The bringing together of smaller states and kingdoms spanning from the Himalayan region to the Indian ocean, into one unified country was made possible only during the era of British rule. Finally, the British rule in India also ended in the year 1947 after nearly 200...
