Yours truly, Author

Dear Blog,
This is the first time I’m writing a letter to you. Hope you receive it in time. It’s been a while since I thought of writing a letter to you, to tell you how important you are to me. We have been together since few years now but there was hardly a time we spoke to each other. I believe there’s no better way than a snail mail to fill up this gap. Frankly speaking I can’t recollect what motivated me to start a blog but I do remember how the enthusiasm kicked in and we started writing our own history together. We started the journey with youthful rhymes. Yeah! I remember why we decided it to be named as “rhymes” & not poems.

#EverWonderedWhy clock's hands move clockwise?

One of the everyday thing which we use all around the world is a clock. It has become such an integral part of our lives that neither the day starts nor the night ends without it. But have you #EverWonderedWhy clock's hands move clockwise? i.e.: From left to right. Why is it not the other way round?

The answer to our curiosity lies in sundials and in which Earth's hemisphere the clock was invented in.

Sundials was an earlier mechanism which were used to keep the track of time. They used to cast shadows with reference to the sun's position as it moved from East to West.

Later when civilizations advanced mechanical clocks replaced the sundials. But even though they replaced them, the mechanical clocks where calibrated to match the speed of the movement of shadow of the sundials and also its direction of movement.

Although there are many takeaways from this year I’d like to jot down the most influential: My five takeaways from 2017
1. Education My college days are over 6 years back. Still I always had this urge to learn something new. This year finally after a much lingered thought I did a certification. I must say that going through this process of learning oiled those jammed gears in action. It brought in new ideas and zeal to pursue something new. That feeling my friends is unmatched!
2. Family & Friends This year I was hospitalized for the first time in my life! The experience was dreadful. It really doesn’t matter who you are or how much money you have. You suffer nonetheless. It’s how many people you have hold on to that counts in times like these. Family &a…
