What is a Markup?
A markup simply means formatting information to be displayed in a way or another to the user. There are various ways to present data, and we can do that with the help of a correct markup. HTML is a markup language.
HTML is not a programming language, and many people somehow believe it is, but HTML does not instruct the computer to perform specific functions, thus not a programming language. It does three tasks:
Structuring the Data
“Styling” the data
Structuring the data means it differentiates something from another thing and helps the browser (chrome, firefox etc) to display something.
Styling means changing the visible attributes of some information (HTML does that with CSS).
Metadata means information about the HTML document, like how a browser should render the page, or who created the page and so on.
When we follow all these steps correctly, we create a good design and then a good UI.
I was writing my diary for the day, and while pointing out my “life choices” to me, I wrote down some points to help cope up with my depression. I had it green flagged by my imaginary friend Robert so I thought, let’s share it! So here are 13 Realistic habits to save you from depression and sadness, and help you lead a happy life:
Note: This post needs an editor, please send any corrections needed on this article at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want to join the team, consider this link.
Well, before I start, there’s a book I would recommend to you. It’s from our favorite author Paulo Coelho and it is a best seller: Veronika decides to die. This book inspired a lot of me lately and there’s a thing that is very different about this book: It is relatable in great ways.
And also, I don’t have any imaginary friends (Not anymore, since Alka killed Robert and now she is in a prison located in a remote town).
The first point is the hardest probably and that’s why I put it at first. Now try to read word by word, and say goodbye to sadness.
Redundancy means extra. Eliminate all the “extras” from your life. Whether it’s a kind of work, a person, a video game or whatever. You always have at least one thing that you might feel great emotional importance for, or maybe it might come handy later if not now.
Just drop it.
However, some people (categorized as “clumsy” and “slob” in the dictionary of my kind of people) like the things they are: just however it is, but you waste a lot of your energy and brain power over something that is not even important. There is a TV in your room, but you watch Netflix on your laptop. Who needs a TV? Maybe someone who lives couple blocks away but can’t afford thousands of bucks on this luxury. Maybe you can sell it and help that guy while making some extra gandhis.
Don’t trust me? take every successful human being as an example and you’ll see.
(Every successful, not every materialistic rich person)
Optimistic Life Scheme
Now, there are many people who supposedly live a good life by staying negative throughout their life. I would ask you if someone like that came to you.
No one can stay happy by spreading sadness. Period.
There are sadistic people, who like to see the world burning as they turn their paranthas over it, but no, they are far from being happy. They don’t understand the true meaning of happiness and often live in delusion and die with a lot of regrets and sadness in their hearts. Unless someone kills them before, of course.
Keep it minimal
If you think you are productive because there live a million tabs open in your browser, then sir: you are wrong. You are far from productive. Yes, maybe you are a workaholic who likes things fast but I announce this loud: Fast doesn’t mean cluttered. Multitasking is a non-sense.
Yes, your mother is a multi-tasking legend perhaps, but don’t ever compare yourself to a housewife. For a normal person like me and you, multitasking is dangerous. I mean, it sounds more productive, doesn’t it? but it often is NOT.
We are humans, not a smartphone.
Write down a list of tasks you want to accomplish in a given time frame, do it one-by-one. That’s the key.
Now, there is no rocket science in this. Work hard. It’s as simple as it sounds. People often are afraid of being dragged into hard work. But if you are working hard with a mindset and a definite goal, it is a step in your life for happiness.
If you are working hard to provide for your family, you probably don’t need any more reasoning.
Learning a new language? Work hard.
Reading a book? Work hard.
Finding a store to buy contraceptives? Work hard.
Sometimes we lose patience and go in without a raincoat, but it’s always better to be thorough in whatever quest you are on.
Just remember your hustle, and stay busy doing everything you can for the goodness in the life of yours and to people you love.
Follow a diet and exercise regularly
This is another one of hardest tasks which seem as easy as it sounds.
Exercise? Yeah anyone can do it to some level.
Diet? sounds good to me, I am starting that tomorrow!
It is not easy and probably the reason for depression for most of us.
A good diet includes all essential vitamins, good amount of protein and fat and lots and lots of water. It does not include the food we city people consume all the time: concentrated sweets (like jalebi), processed food (like bread) and fried food (like a samosa) but we forget the health once their aromas reach our mouth and they reach our stomach.
Now, it’s okay to eat that once in a while, but so is a good workout.
What I recommend: if you’re a geek like me, follow Health app in your iPhone or Fit app in your Android and walk at least 10,000 steps in a day. If you are a free soul, just stay active throughout the day and avoid sedentary time as much as possible.
Eliminate bad habits
Smoking, recreational drugs and alcohol tops in my list of bad habits. Late night snacks, too much video games, smartphone-in-toilet addiction follows that.
Bad habits are bad for a reason. And should be eliminated from your life as soon as possible. Sometimes, when a person is depressed, they seek to resolve in smoking or alcohol or other bad activities to keep their mind off for a while. But, it never works as one might expect.
Addiction is another thing, and there is no teaching that to you. You are smart enough to know the consequences. I am talking about the things these bad habits are supposed to do but fail with a long shot.
Smoking never helps with treatment of depression, and I can testify that myself. Alcohol makes things even worse, that’s why you never see someone suffering from depression sober night-time. If they take alcohol, it’s all the time.
Replace bad habits with good ones. Feeling sad and lonely? Turn off the lights and watch a horror movie, I bet you won’t feel lonely anymore.
On a serious note though, everything is replaceable. EVERYTHING.
Everyone has a safe place. And if you’re busy most of the times, you might not even think about that place but secretly visit in your dreams with your consciousness sleeping snoring.
That place, where everything is peaceful and calm and you’re just relaxing, smiling with no worries and no sadness.
For me, that place is an underground lake by a cave. Although the lake is underground, you can see the shadow of the crescent moon in the crystal clear water. There are fireflies dancing around the bonfire you set just outside the cave. There are people inside the cave and I could hear as if they are celebrating something. Perhaps life itself. But it still is so calm, I swear I feel the might
of God in myself: calm and peaceful, yet powerful and generous.
And once I am done staring in the shallowness of the lake and soaking my feet, I would run and chase after those fireflies. Those fireflies, are my dream.
So if you have dreams, go after them. There’s no harm in being a little bit crazy. This world is your oyster after all.
Everyone is an artist.
Regardless of particular skills, one can learn, everyone has a special creative talent. One can cook tasty gourmet meals, one can draw funny cartoons, one can compose funky tune while humming, one can craft eye-favoring origami (or paper planes). My point is, everyone has at least one creative trade.
Find that one skill and hone it. You’d be encouragingly happy and depression would seem distant boat to you.
As for me, I am very curious since childhood. So I developed a variety of creative skills like cartooning, music, rapping and making marijuana joints (I am kidding mom).
I used the word effectively. Everone socializes in one way or another. Even so-called introverts have a way to stay in touch with the world around them. But you have to socialize effectively for it to work in your benefit.
Socialize with people who share some good characteristics with you. For example, if you love playing badminton, join a sports club and play badminton. Make a friend or few there. Try to connect with new people, every-day.
Learn about a person, but don’t get attached to them emotionally. Believe in short talks, they are life-altering conversations. Talk to your uber driver, talk to your kitchen maids, talk to rickshaw-pullers, smile often to people and greet with a kind “hello” (for example: to someone sharing an elevator with you). But try not to creep out or irritate strangers. A smile is the best escape from troublesome situations.
Make a girlfriend/boyfriend. And share the goodness with them. If you find it hard to find a partner, don’t get desperate. Ask your friends to hook you up with someone. You’ll find someone on the way along.
Keep yourself away from bad company and people who spit poisons for others. Keep people who gossip at bay. And try not to gossip yourself, you are not to judge anybody to enjoy life with others: that’s the golden rule.
I watch movies A LOT. Almost three new movies every week. Sometimes when I am working and need a distraction, I rewatch some light-comedy films. But it doesn’t have to be a movie. It can be Anime (Believe it), and Cartoons(Anime is not cartoon).
TV shows like Friends, Breaking Bad and Sherlock are great too. (Keep yourself away from shows like desperate housewives, The Simpsons, Big Brother etc)
The main reason these type of entertainment is good for is, they don’t last long. But are enough to drive you into another world, away from your worries and might leave you with some moral to live the day by. Avoid watching movies late night, because you’ll forget the excitement the very next day.
Be Financially secure
Even if you’re a jolly, no money in the bank means a definite struggle if not a pitiful life as you’d call it.
Always make sure you have enough to sustain through a good amount of time. Always keep working for money. A job is not always bad as they are bad-publicized in mainstream media and social networks. In fact, if you don’t want to go insane, find work. Work keeps some motivation lit.
And it’s always better to afford things, you know.
This one might not work for everyone, but it should. Get a book from a library or some of your literate friend. Try to go through that book if you’re not a regular reader. If you find yourself impatient or there is not enough time in the day to read a book, then you’re leaning towards depression.
When you read a book (fiction), you’re not only living a story in shoes of someone else but also giving some time for self-appreciation. It is a type of meditation. Although, since you’re already reading this, and have gone through 1884 words already: I will assume you read fiction already. Avoid romantic novels created after 1980 though, they’re all bull.
Learn new skills
Learn how to sail, or how to skin a rabbit.
Learning something new brings freshness in routine life. Learn a new language and enjoy songs from a completely different culture. Watch Spanish movies in Spanish, read Japanese books in Japanese. It’s so satisfying, you’ll know when you do it.
Life can be lived in many ways. No two people are same in this world. Depression is just lack of that life and it can be dealt with (unless it’s a medical condition, which requires care but is still can be dealt with).
I hope you found a new light because somehow I had to find mine, by writing this, another casual blog article.
I have been an apple user since a good amount of time. I started off with a MacBook Pro for my development purposes. Yes, it’s was expensive but I wanted the best. So I spent a lot of money and Got this laptop. Mac is fast, there is no denying that.
A year later, I purchased my first iPhone, completing the first step to obtain an apple ecosystem. If you ask me: yes, it’s great and amazing. Apple indeed is something.
But at what cost.
So is it?
People around me see me as a tech-guy because of my educational background in computer science, but other than development, I don’t understand much of IT.
I mean, I’ve never noticed a difference between a 2GB Rammed Android phone with another of 3GB Ram. Yes, internal storage was an issue but thanks to Google and Marshmallow Android OS, you can use an external memory card to store everything including apps in your little android minx.
Yes, every tech expert says ios and Apple OS combines amazingly both hardware and software technology for an astounding user experience. But another day, I was browsing through my brother’s Samsung Galaxy Note 8 and I was like, why…
Why am I using iPhone?
Apple is way too costly and unless you’re into showing off your broken screen device (as you cannot probably afford a 22,000 repair every-time there is a scratch on it), it is way too redundant.
I bought my second iPhone soon later, used it for almost 4 months before my earbuds stopped responding from left piece leaving the right piece with a meaningless life.
I knew it in my heart that apple care would not replace it, bought a Bluetooth headpiece (BoAt) and visited the only premium apple care center in the 9th ranked biggest metropolitan city in this world, New Delhi. And, too much to my surprise, they did not even have a good look at my earbuds before denying my replacement order.
I’ve heard the tales of good services Apple offers to its kidney-less clients but I think all those services died with Steve Jobs in 2011.
So, if you have lots of money you would like to burn, I’d suggest buy an apple device. Because for 60k you can get an iWatch. Because, Time.
I was a pair of listening ears as long as I have known anything. People would pour down their frustration, their tears, and everything to me and I would take it all like a good boy. I did never actually understand their conditions but my suggestions relieved them to some level. But as I become older, experiences started to hammer me, shape my soul and for better or worse – changed me. Today, we will discuss 5 things you endured that proves you are a grown up.
It necessarily is not true for everyone but as a general idea might define your overall characteristics a living adult human being.
Rejected for Love
Everyone gets rejected: this is a fact. It happens to everyone (unless you’re utterly beautiful and saying no to you might cause repercussions). But yes, it is natural. It’s hard to avoid and can be very painful if the person who rejected you works with you, or go to school with you.
Everyone is beautiful, it’s all about the eyes who see it in you. Yes, a guy can have a pair of well balanced glowy eyes and nice cheekbones with some well defined manly jaws but it’s his character that can hold you up during tough times. Same goes for women, if you like girls with a good figure, oh God you’re in trouble during old age. There is more to us human individuals and if it’s just good looks that attract you to someone, then trust me, it’s not gonna end good for you.
Rejection is mandatory. It is essential. It teaches us how it feels with the absence of romance and keeps us from getting arrogant and a cruel jackass.
Humiliated in Public
Has it ever happened to you?
You’re screaming at someone for their bad service, in front of everyone and after a while, it turns out, it was your fault to start with.
Well, embarrassing but justice well served.
But what happens, when this situation is reversed, someone is insulting you, in front of people and you do not know how to respond. You either lash back or cry. And both outcomes are worse for your self-respect.
What do you do? You go home and lie down and feel even worse. Trust me, happened to me more than I can count. It happens to everyone time to time and if someone manages to evade this unfortunate yet essential experience, they are standing in the shadows. That is not completely a bad thing at all, not everyone seeks attention. But that prevents you from learning to acknowledging your mistakes and to not give a damn at certain points in your life.
Hanging out with friends is a cure if you find it hard to understand yourself in the beginning.
Unless you’re living with your parents or born as a silver spoon lad, you would face a financial crisis if not has faced yet. Every new adult goes through this.
You will cut back your luxuries to pay for utilities, you will sleep without AC, you will have to clean your house yourself and might as well go to bed hungry during desperate times.
IT IS OKAY!
You will rise through it, there is no need to worry. Play the song below and close your eyes for few moments.
Regret of choosing wrong
Should I eat white pasta or brown sandwich? Hmm…
Made the wrong choice and now your chest is burning. White flour is bad for you but it is tasty! You’ve made a bad choice and now you’re suffering. But lucky are those, for whom this is worse. Sometimes you make a choice, that affects not only your life but the lives of others. Especially your loved ones.
You chose a wrong woman as a wife, and now your kids are suffering. Well, thank god then. Because you heard this already but I might tell you as well: “Everything happens, happens for good.” And it might look like it, but your bad choices were not bad after-all. Yes, they affect in the short run, but life is too beautiful to cry about your decisions.
If you’re Afraid, don’t do it
if you decide to do it, don’t be afraid
God knows we make a lot of wrong choices, and there is no way out of it. But bad choices if they are, it helps us to grow and make better decisions in future. Both ways, we win eventually.
It’s hard to lose someone you held close to you. But every connection, every tie is temporary. You are born alone and you will die alone, we cannot escape this reality. Yes, attachment, as told by Lord Buddha, causes sadness when broken but we should not avoid attachment to this fear at all.
Detachment can mean the death of someone close to you. It can mean love of your life left you, it can mean you lost your writing hand and you were a writer. Detachment is the ultimate cause of sadness. There is probably no easy way out of it. Recovery through this hell takes a lot of time and I will not tell you ways to shorten the recovery period or ease the pain. you need this pain.
This is the only way you become wise, through your sufferings. You help people who are suffering from what you have suffered in past because you know the pain.
Yes, suffering is inevitable and we cannot question the God. But we can least make something good out of these situations and grow out of them.
Their’s an article I would like you to read, here’s the link.
Let’s hope everything would get better.

PS: I need an editor for my blogs. If you want to contribute, I will appreciate your help and will help you to grow as well. Hey, I rhymed! 🙂
One of the most asked question in the history of our universe. Who created the universe? Was it titans? God? men of another universe? (yes, that’s also a theory). The answer is still not known. But I’ll tell you one thing: after reading this article, you will be able to deduce the answer yourself.
Long before Internet, or even telephone. Long before the peace treaty signed by nations when it was prohibited to travel beyond borders when international communication was a dream. I am going to talk about the time even before that. When America did not exist, and Europe did not know about China or India. Let’s go back to 3000BC.
The first complex civilization of this world is Mesopotamia, and why would someone say it is first when it definitely is not? Because before this civilization, there is no written evidence of any other civilization. It’s been 5000 years since and nothing much can sustain that long. If there was any other civilization before that, which most logically, existed, then without any written proof, we cannot presume anything.
Now my point: since not many people existed in the world during that time (0.6%), communication was least of humanity’s concern in that era. It was Europe thousands of years later that first decided to explore the world (apparently). So it is not possible for a myth to be false if it is present in every text of every civilization thousands of years ago.
Whether it is Lord Indra of Hinduism or old pervert Greek god, Zeus, both controlled lightning. And again, since this topic is way too controversial for a blog article, I’ll conclude one thing: Some myths are not just myths.
There either is some connection behind that or maybe Zeus was real. One thing is for sure, we, as humans are still not sure about the actual history. Maybe there was a battle that wiped away civilizations and the hero who saved the world was a lightning powerhouse. And when writers/artists of the different cultural background (who were actually inspired by this lightning hero), created their masterpieces, that would later become a religious script.
Comparative mythology purposed a new branch of study years ago in which various myths are studied for one common origin.
Now, how is that connected with the formation of our universe?
Is the universe even a real entity?
Entity: a thing with independent existence. That’s why the universe is not a real entity.
We are not certain about the limit of our own universe. Calculations of borders are completely hypothetical. There are no borders. Each second, universe expands by 67 kilometers. Not sure how big that number is?
Consider you are sitting in a room, reading a book. every second the books moves further away from you. And since time is a human-made concept, and also it is relative to the subject of perception, it varies. Each cell of your body gets apart from themselves every second as your body expands in (size) relative to the book and the room. That’s why the difference is not noticeable.
And since the universe is expanding at such rate, it is only fair to assume that it all began at a zero point. There was a time when the universe was just 1 millimeter deep. The expand rate is not linear, so it might have taken thousands of years for our universe to expand even that 1 millimeter.
Read that above paragraph again if you didn’t get it.
The universe was created by something that doesn’t even exist.
Hurray atheists! you won this battle!!! Since you don’t believe in the existence of the God, it’s time you accept who created it all.
Why does the universe even expand? How does that make sense?
It is still unknown. Yes, there are many theories about dark matter, or anti-matter, or other dimensions that force upon this expansion but I will not eat any more brain of yours.
And the probability is not key to solving this mystery anymore.
And I am pretty sure this number is wrong by at least billionth place, but that’s how far as human science can reach in precision.
I don’t entirely believe in many myths myself, but looking for reasons is my job. Civilization can be traced back to 80,000 BC and that is way before the known Mesopotamia.
But we still lack public evidence. We cannot know for sure if everything we read in books is factual. And since Internet public knowledge is derived from these sort of books, it’s hard to believe what I or anyone else say on the matter is true. It’s all about beliefs, in the end.
So, do you think it was God who triggered in our creation? Or was it us who created the concept of God for our own ease of understanding. Whatever it is, it’s still an unsolved mystery.
In next article, I’ll discuss the dimensions and you will not find those conclusions anywhere else. Is forth dimension time? We are not even sure about the third dimension. See you next time.
Indian culture is rich and if you’re an Indian, you already must be proud enough to tell the tales of deep and profound Indian culture. And to add icing on this cake, most of the Indian myths are based on true scientific facts.
Yes, there are many so-called atheists who would say anything to renegade these facts and it’s funny how they are basically more ignorant than other narrow-minded population of this huge sub-continent.
Ok, I can go on and on about India but that’s certainly enough controversial for me to talk about. I am here to talk about one of the oldest Indian fashion statement: Gold Ornaments.
So here are the 5 of many benefits of wearing Gold, and if you can afford, I’d suggest wearing some.
Gold helps in blood circulation. There is a reason it is suggested for Hindu brides to wear gold on their wedding day and later in their marriage life. The entire female makeup makes sense when you take the matter to science level. Due to heavy workload put on women in Indian communities, health problems arises starting from their 30s.
However, the gold ornament can aid in health benefits by circulating the blood in a regular and controlled manner. But it’s still not enough for most women as they suffer from imbalanced blood pressure and other problems related to blood and veins.
And when blood is regulated properly throughout the body, the temperature remains consistent and other health problems like fever and cold is seen less in women who wear gold. It’s a good idea to wear gold whenever you’re suffering from chickenpox or measles for this same reason. It strengthens our immune system.
When one reason is good enough, you can derive other benefits to the fundamental use of gold. And one of many derived uses: is its positive effect on your brain.
Your brain is active all the time. It never rests. That means it needs proper care including hydration, exercise and blood circulation.
We’ve already talked about blood circulation, I’ll not put more words into it. When blood is circulated properly, your brain becomes vitalized and functions better. if your ears are pierced, you can get some earrings to keep you cool.
If you’ve read my theories on ghosts, you already know how energy flows in our body. There’s a central point in the body (located at body mass which is generally either chest or abs), which distributes energy continuously and uniformly throughout our body and we call that point chakra. There are 6 others main chakras that function accordingly. One chakra is located in your head that absorbs nature energy and other chakras that transmits this energy to your central nervous system. Gold can ease the process. However, I don’t have proper evidence to support my theory and I can definitely be wrong on this.
But my deduction is based on the principle of gold’s physical properties. It is insoluble and can absorb and retain energy like a capacitor. But you can try it yourself. If you meditate, try to meditate next time with a gold chain around your neck and see the difference.
Effect on water
Water is one of the best things ever. I am not just saying this because I love beaches. Water is an essential element of our body and combined with gold, it is miraculous. Please remember, I would not recommend drinking water in a gold vessel under higher room temperature (below 40℃ is okay!).
Gold water strengthens the nervous system, it improves memory and increases stamina. It is also beneficial in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis.
There are chai companies like Tata tea gold and Taj Mahal Gold that uses the word Gold in their brand name for a reason. Gold has natural healing properties that are known by ancient Asian civilizations long before anyone could ever imagine.
Disclaimer: Metals like gold are essential for our body in small amounts. But in a larger amount, they become toxic. I’d not recommend you to follow the suggestions provided in this article if you suffer metal allergy of any sort. Consult a real physicist (not on Internet) if needs be.
A few days ago, I was cleaning my hard-drive and found old Gameboy games sitting in a corner. I started playing Super Mario Bros and Yoshi’s adventures for hours. It was a good time playing some old school games on my techy MacBook .
Suddenly I realized, I used to struggle a lot to play emulator games on my computer. Slow rendering speed, lots of lags and availability of games. But it was 2010.
7 years have passed by and almost everything has changed.
But how much things have evolved?
There was a time when people were so afraid of machines that almost every government shutdown projects on Artificial Intelligence. But now almost every tech giant is developing on AI one way or another.
There is an AI that taught itself to walk.
The World is still facing some serious issues like poverty, shortage of resources and education and employment, global warming and so on. But this aspect of reality is almost invisible to the almost entire population. And, why not? Why would we care about something in development?
We need the end product. I mean how this video of an animated AI is helpful. I’d rather watch the trailer of Sony PlayStation VR.
Yes, it is not important to stay updated with technology that still is not on the market yet. But if you’re aware of what is coming, you’ll stay prepared and take the best out of it (if it does).
Technology is supposed to help with issues we’re facing and it is doing its job well. Better than human beings to be honest.
You made life so better, oy’ Technology
Perhaps, far beyond human’s Appreciation
Yes, technology has its harms but with this dying world, it is our only hope besides mercy of the God. Consider the exponential rise in population. Asia soon would become a network of congested people (which already is to some extent). With good technology, we can build buildings higher than the sky, safer even in the deadliest of the natural disaster like the earthquake. Now, consider the asteroid shower and interstellar randomness, we could all die any second. Consider the pollution. Consider the corruption and its consequential human extinction.
We ultimately had to leave earth at some point in future to sustain human race, and that’s only possible with one tool to mankind: Technology. I’ll produce videos and useful articles on the “actual” and feasible technology and everything you need to know.
Technology is fire, it keeps you warm but fiddle wrongly, and you shall burn.
I still remember that day as if it was yesterday. I was 12 years old and was doing what other twelve years old kids would do, smoking and hanging out with my punters.Why we cannot see ghosts? Truth revealed
I was in seventh grade at that time and participated in summer camp with other cool kids of my class. It was three days, three nights trip somewhere I don’t care to remember. We would play sport and wander freely in the day and would play around the camp fire telling stories and sleep over each other in the night, like some drunk idiots. Or kids.
I remember that night distinctly as I was the scapegoat in a massive conspiracy those knuckleheads knitted for me. For a summer evening, it sure was chilling. It was cold as a tomb that night. But we could not care less, a pack of 10-11 kids. Someone had spread the rumor of an abandoned graveyard nearby, and some of them shat their pants by the news. But I was standing in the braver crowd.
I took the opportunity as a challenge when someone put a bounty over the head of a ghost. Challange was to tag a tomb, in the deepest corner of the graveyard park with an underwear. Silly kids.
Of course, the graveyard was not abandoned, I could see the light at one end, but I decided to keep the information to myself.
I was the first (and only) one to do the challenge. Walk through the dead people and put an underwear on the tomb of last one. Disrespecting enough, we were just kids. So, before I could start my journey, a cold breeze went by enough to shake a bunch of twelve years old boys like withered leaves.
They decided to leave; it was a foolish quest after all. But I was determined. Fear of the dead was least of my concerns. I did not believe in ghost.
I surely do now. Evidence speaks.
I decided to walk in the graveyard. Sure, I was scared a little bit, but more of stray dogs than of stray souls. And as I walked, I swear I could hear some weird noises, like someone is breathing behind my neck. Breathing heavily, as I started walking with brisk steps.
There was no one behind me. As I walked deeper into the park, weird things began to happen. I suddenly felt weight around my calves as if the gravity was more intense than everywhere else there. I could hear bats giggling and screeching. It became harder and harder to walk deeper into the nursery. But I managed to follow the light I saw from outside the park.
Soon enough although, I realized no bulb or lamp was hanging inside anywhere. The light was coming across the graveyard fences. It was abandoned, indeed. Suddenly hair on the back of my neck got cold and stood up straight. I could feel the goosebumps on my arms too. It was not supposed to be this cold.
The Theory of the Eighth color
I’ve talked about this before, read that entire theory in detail there. To sum up that article, the human can only see some of all colors (in easier words), and there are many things around us that we cannot see.
Maybe ghost of past or impressions of future. Spooky isn’t it?
So, ghosts, in my science, fall into the domain of this “eighth color” and thus invisible to us. But are ghosts real?
Well, that’s discussion is for some another day, but I’ll throw a hint at you: YES!, they are.
I have a theory. Well, we know most of that already, but I have made a deduction. See, light travels in different wavelengths (you can ignore this term if you’re not much sciency). It simply means red color appears red because it’s the way our eyes resembles the physical form of light on that particular object. Let me make it simple:The Eighth Color – Scientific theory by Rees Gargi
Rainbow is seven colored, VIBGYOR we call it (Violet, Indigo, Blue, Green, Yellow, Orange, Red). We see them only after rain or high humidity in the atmosphere. It is actually just a white sunlight passing through water droplets in the air. The drops (in the sky) act like a prism where lights get through and split into seven colors.
To explain in easiest of words, there are only a specific numbers of colors a human eye can see. Everything that is not made of that color, is simply invisible to us. So if you paint a wall of some mysterious color not recognizable to our eyes, be ready to take responsibility if someone walks into it and breaks their nose.
Only Read below if you understand at least a little bit of Physics
Light has a wavelength, like anything else in this world which is in waveform (like sound). Which means it travels in space (vacuum or air filled) at a certain speed or phase (angle). We can only see a range of that wavelength. Say, red color lies in that wavelength (just for the sake of understanding). Then if a color, that is similar to red somehow but does not fall in the visible wavelength is invisible to us.
For example, Bluetooth or wi-fi signals exist. But you cannot see them. Maybe a buffalo or cow can if that signal falls into their visible spectrum. Maybe there are objects like your mobile phone that is invisible to some creatures. You get the idea.

Do you like playing Gameboy games like Pokemon Fire Red or Emerald Green or some PlayStation 2/3 games like Assasin’s Creed or WWE Smackdown? Do you want to know, how to play console games on your PC or Android.
Well, this is a guide you need to read, 5 minutes for hours of fun every day?
Note: I do not promote playing console games on PC illegally using emulators, this guide is for educational purpose only.
What would you need
Emulator of the console, you need to simulate. There’s a website called “Emulator Zone”, just google it or click here.
You need a Rom for the game you wish to play. There’s website where you can download roms for free and there are thousands of them! (Rom is just a fancy word for game, noobs). Download Roms here.
A PC or an Android phone.
How to play the game?
Just download the emulator and open it. Set your controller if needs to be. And load from the menu and it is done. Some emulators are hard to setup (like PSP and PS3).
These emulators were initially developed to test the games but there are now used by geeks all over the world.
You can also search for emulators you like on Android’s Play Store. But in my experience, playing on PC is much smoother. But you can enjoy some lightweight games on your portable device.
My personal favorite emulator is Gameboy Advance which is absolutely free to download and there are hundred of roms available for you to play. Some emulators like PSX (PlayStation Emulator) needs bios to run. You need to own a console for that. But of course, since it is downloadable, you can get a bios for free online (I am not suggesting you that) and load that bios like you would do to a rom.
Hope this blog helped you if you’re new to gaming.
