Jawaharlal awaharlal Nehru was the first Primer minister of India. He was born in Allahabad, United provinces, British Raj. Present day on Uttar Pradesh on 14 November 1889. His father name was Motilal Nehru and mother’s name was Swarup Rani Thussa. His father was a politician and Indian lawyer. His mother was Motilal's second wife. He was the first of the three children of her parents. Nehru received most of his primary education at home with the help of several tutors and governess.

Why Pluto is no more planet?। What are the requirements to be a planet? Updated

Why Pluto is no more planet?। What are the requirements to be a planet? Updated  Is Pluto a planet or not?, this is a common dilemma for us. If you were in elementary school before 2006, there’s a good chance you had to memorize something that the order of our solar system; Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and finally Neptune and Pluto. Now if you are currently in elementary school you might be saying, there were nine planets?. So what happened to Pluto?. It’s not like it’s gone anywhere. It’s still out there on the edge of the solar system, as cold and far away as ever, so what changed?. Pluto hasn’t, but our understanding of it has. We know way more about space than we did one hundred years ago. Pluto itself was only discovered in 1930, so it’s not like the planet lineup hasn’t been modified before. Still that doesn’t change the fact that there’s something inherently strange about a planet being demoted. When even knew that was a thing that could happen? Things mi

God Particle | At last scientists have found God particle. Is it really related to God?

At last scientists have found God particle. Is it really related to God? God particle which is also known as Higgs boson's story starts from the question of mass. So first we will see what is mass?. If we say technically it is a measurement of inertia of a body. In other wards if a body is in static or dynamic phase and anyone wants to change its phase he/she will fill a resistance, this resistance is called mass. If you didn’t understand mass yet, let’s see an another example. We know that any thing which doesn’t have mass, travels in vacuum with the speed of light such as photon. Or we can say which travels at the speed of light in vacuum doesn’t possess any mass. Before going forward you have to make it clear that mass and weight are not same thing. In case of weight there is a contribution of gravity. That’s why mass of a any certain thing is always same in every part of this universe but it’s weight may increase or decrease depending on the different gravity of the planet. We

How Great is Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj?|A complete tale of Maratha Empire aginst Mughal The year is 1627 AD and almost all of Bharat is islamic occupation. In the North, there are the Mughals under Shah Jahan, In Bijapur, there is sultan Mohammad Adli Shah. And in Golconda, Sultan Abdulla Qutub Shah. The Deccan sultans always preferred to have Muslim officers in the army. But the Portuguese controlled ports and Mughals controlled the land routes. That’s why it was not possible to get Muslim officers from North Africa or central Asia. So the sultans of Deccan were forced to appoint Hindu officers. One such Adil Shahi  military commander was a Maratha named Shahaji Bhosale. Shahi was a top General in the Adil Shahi empire. In 1630 AD in the fort of Shuvneri near junnar in present day Maharashtra, a son was born to Sahajo and Jijabai. The son named after the local deity Shivai would grow up to be Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. Shivaji's father was always away in his childhood, so his tw
