August 31, 2016: It is known as a fact that nature provides plenty of natural resources for life to sustain and flourish. Some Herbs, shrubs and trees are natural reservoirs of minerals and medicines; the noteworthy and most common of them are Tulsi and Neem.

The Coconut, a pretty high hanging nut-like fruit that has been used as a vital hydrating agent since ages hasn’t got the spotlight it deserves. Often used in Indian movies, where the water inside a coconut is slurped by the two actors simultaneously, to display the mutual affection of the actors towards each other, the Coconut water, apparently, has more than what meets the eye!


So here’s a list of all the good stuff coconut water blesses you with-

  • Known for its high mineral content, Coconut water moisturises the skin and helps in improving the skin tone. It helps a great deal in eliminating oil from the system. That is the reason shampoos, conditioners and moisturisers have traces of coconut extracts in them.
  • The high concentration of fibre assists in the digestions process helps reduces the occurrence of acid reflux and helps reduce acidity . A healthy digestive system results in a healthy body and mind.

  • Coconut water is a blessing for the urinary system in humans as it contains diuretic properties, and is said to prevent kidney stones.

Doris Lessing who won a Nobel Prize in Literature

London (CNN)- At five o'clock in the morning, the esteemed 86-year-old astrophysicist Jim Peebles was woken suddenly by the telephone ringing.

"In previous experience, the only phone calls at that time of night are bad news," he said. This one was great news. "The opening sentence from the caller was: 'The Nobel committee has voted to award you the Nobel Prize in Physics. Do you accept?'" Peebles recalled. The wording threw him. Who wouldn't accept a Nobel Prize? "You know the Bob Dylan fiasco?" he said during a phone interview with CNN. "That might have put the wind up them."The "fiasco" Peebles mentions refers to the 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature, which was controversially given to an utterly unimpressed Dylan.Aside from being ever-presents on college campuses in the 1960s, little connects Peebles, an expert in theoretical cosmology, with Dylan. But one of the starkest contrasts might lie in their reactions to winning a Nobel -- and the songwriter is far from the only laureate whose crowning turned out to be an awkward affair.

The five committees are notoriously secretive, fiercely shielding their choices from the outside world -- including the laureates themselves, who are told of their victories just minutes before they are announced to the public.

Sindoor implies the longevity of a woman's marriage to her husband in the Hindu tradition

Married Hindu women are recognised by a red streak of vermillion in the middle of their foreheads. This is traditionally called 'sindoor', which is derived from the Sanskrit word sindura, meaning 'red lead.'. Sindoor is traditionally powdered turmeric and lime, sometimes red saffron, or red sandalwood. It is also called vermilion, or Kumkum.
