Let us take a look at some weird foods people ate to get through the period of the Great Depression. …
One of Disney’s Pirates of the Caribbean album can be heard singing, Yo, ho, ho! A pirate’s life for me. It makes a catchy lyric for sure. But the person who had written this had no idea, how unbelievably disgusting and disease-ridden, a pirate’s living conditions were.
The absence of nutrition-rich food and constant exposure to unhygienic conditions made the sailors highly vulnerable to life-threatening illnesses. Plus, confined spaces on a ship and lack of access to clean water allowed these illnesses to spread to other crewmates quickly.
One look at the pirate hygiene conditions and you will find Caption…
Hi everyone. My name is Bhavna Narula. And this story is all About Me.
I am a true Aquarian by nature — obstinate, eccentric, unconventional, and friendly. I have been born and brought up in Maharashtra, India.
I have earned a Diploma and a Postgraduate degree in Human Resources Management. I have also completed my B.ed (Teacher training program) in 2019 and since then have been working as a Teacher with an International Baccalaureate School.
I have been training in an Indian Classical dance form Kathak for the past 8 years and have performed at various events as well.

With this positivity in mind, I…
One afternoon I was going back home from work when I noticed a beggar. His appearance was pitiable. Clothes were obviously unwashed and so was he. I wanted to frown but when I thought about his living conditions, that frown turned into sympathy and heartache.

This feeling created doom inside my heart.
The signal turned red and our side of vehicles…
Aruna Shanbaug was born in 1948 in Haldipur, Uttar Kannada, Karnataka. She worked as a nurse at the King Edward Memorial Hospital (KEM) in Mumbai. At the time of the attack, she was engaged to a doctor employed at the same hospital.
On the night of 27 November 1973, the then 25-year-old Shanbaug was sexually assaulted by Sohanlal Bhartha Walmiki, a sweeper on contract at the King Edward Memorial Hospital. Sohanlal attacked her while she was changing clothes in the hospital basement. He choked her with a dog chain and sodomized her.
This cut off oxygen to her brain, resulting…
I was already bugged with the question of what came first, the egg or the chicken and then you’re confusing me about vaginas by calling them a pussy.
I spent an entire night thinking of these differences and you better not challenge them. First of all, Vaginas are nature’s most beautiful and mystical creations and cats are, well, just cats.
There’s no comparison between them at all.
But for the sake of it, I have listed down 13 reasons highlighting how different both of them are from each other. …
