WHAT ?  WHY ? HOW ?

1. Diabetic patients are advised not to intake sweets or tea containing sugar; but are asked to have ripe fruits, which also contain sugar. What might be the reason? In ripe fruits the sugar is present in the form of fructose and glucose, which are termed as Natural Sugars; but sugar used in sweets are made of sucrose who are termed Artificial Sugar and are harmful than those of Natural Sugars.

2. You might be familiar with mango, a fruit which is found in very abundance and called the “King of Fruits”.

India got its name from this Fruit. Not to be surprised with, the scientific name of Mango is “Magnifera Indica” which means the place where mangoes are found.

3.Do you think that something can actually move you without your permission? You will be puzzled to hear that Lithosphere, the part of the land over which humans live, made of Earth’s crust and mantle is a continuously moving layer of Earth. The lithosphere is divided into big chunks of landmass called Tectonic Plates; which makes the actual

movement possible. These plates can be bigger than even a continent.

4. Have you imagined why a matchstick head is ignited only when it strikes the sidewall of a matchbox? Actually the matchstick has an oxidizing agent, which thus gets ignited when struck to a combustible material present in the sidewall of a matchbox.

5. The light which we observe everyday from dawn to dusk; what do you think they are?

The light is actually the rays of electromagnetic waves from the sun, which helps us in

recognizing the world around us.
