Music is extremely important and vital in people's lives. We can work and shop while listening to music. Music, according to some archaeologists, originated over 55000 years ago. Some musicologists believe that the origin of music is nature, and that man is nature's best part. It is said that the music of nature is the song sung by men in various forms. Nature song is the sweet and humming tone of the nightingale, skylark, and cuckoo, just as the sound of air, river, thundering, and sea waves are.

Why be broken when it can be beautiful instead? A question asked by the 15th-century Japanese Shogun Ashikaga Yoshimasa. The 8th Shogun broke his favorite tea bowl, and to fix it he sent it to China to get it repaired. Sadly, during that time things were fixed using metal staples and this did nothing for the Shoguns bowls’ beauty. The repairmen in China had never dabbled in anything as delicate as the bowl and couldn’t restore the bowl’s aesthetics. But the Shogun was very persistent about restoring his bowl and wouldn’t give up on it just yet. He found Japanese craftsmen to try and fix it, the craftsmen were eager to please the shogun and wanted to impress him with an artful piece they filled the cracks in the teacup with resin and powdered gold.

"Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba" has gained undivided attention from anime fans since the first time it was aired. It is known for its excellent production quality, its amazing CGI(Computer Generated Imagery), magnificent backgrounds and other animated aspects that have been flawlessly composited into this series. At times, high-quality CGI effects are provided to some key characters in wide angles which appears as good as the hand-drawn anime series. I've never seen a digital anime series which was technically stunning to such an extent.

The commercial for Cadbury Gems aims to bring out the inner child in everyone by shifting its focus from children to adults with a child at heart. This Gems commercial emphasizes the idea of enjoying an age-less life and talks about the "little child" in everyone as it shifts its target market from children to adults.

The caste system in India separates society into several faiths and castes. The ancient Vedas, which separated individuals according to vocation, was where the caste system got its start. Despite the system's drawbacks, the government continues to make great efforts to counteract them and provide genuine equality of opportunity for all. Everyone, regardless of caste or religion, now has access to free and equitable education thanks to the Indian government. People who identify as members of the Scheduled caste, scheduled tribe, and Backward class benefited from the creation of reservations.

Among us game took YouTube by storm in 2020. In 2020, "Among us" became a viral hit on YouTube. A game like this was ideal during the pandemic since it allowed you to communicate with up to 10 people at once at a time when it was challenging to meet people face to face. Even if many of the conversations we did observe weren't very pleasant and it was essentially an argument simulator. Everything started in June or July of 2020, when a large number of people were streaming the game on Twitch. Streamers like XQC started playing the game for fun. Around this time, I also learnt about the game from these people.

According to John Hopkins Medicine, more than a quarter of Americans over 18-year-old are suffering from a mental illness. Is not it weird considering the pace at which our living conditions are consummating becoming theoretically less onerous? At first glance, it definitely is, and the reason is unclear. To explain this baffling statistic, people appeal to a broad term “stress” and the so-called “high cortisol”. Although this rationale is not unreasonable, which makes establishing direct relationships between stress and any disease extremely tempting, it is not as straightforward as we want it to be and requires a little more insight.

Tutankhamun was a pharaoh in Egypt who was particularly special than the other pharaohs uncovered by the Egyptian archaeologists. One main reason that makes him special is that he is the youngest pharaoh to have been buried inside a tomb. He started his rule while he was 9 years old.
