What the Wuck Facts


Here's presenting some insanely insane What the Wuck Facts:

Fact #1. India is the world's largest democracy, with 1.2 billion people. (Know how many 0's that is ?)

Fact #2. 100 million people visit the Kumbh Mela (which happens every 12 years). The world's biggest gathering of humans.  (Again: How many 0's ?)

Fact #3. A man claims he hasn't eaten or drunk anything for 70 years. Doctors still don't know how that's possible.     (My theory  : He hasn't  lived in the age of junk food.)

Fact #4. Breathing the air for one day in Mumbai is equivalent to smoking 100 cigarettes. ( Woaah ....I'm at a loss for words)

Fact #5. We have the world's biggest family ! 1 man, 39 wives. 94 children. (I doubt that man has a TV. His family hasn't been touched by the evil daily soaps)



Fact #6. A man married a dog as an atonement for his sins. (I'm never letting that happen to me. There are hell of a lot of guys out here. You know like 800 girls for every 1000 boys)

Fact #7. Police officers in one state in India are given a pay hike if they have moustaches.  (I didn't know my college boys were planning to be Inspectors. *lol* )

Fact #8. There are more mobile phones here than toilets. (I'll believe that. With Modi Sarkaar stressing on going cashless (entry of Paytm), everyone is more concerned about what's going in than what's coming out. *I know that's gross*)

Fact #9. Children's day is celebrated exactly 9 months after Valentine's Day in India. (Now that's what I call having access to general knowledge)

Fact #10. 70% spices in the world comes from India. ( Ever met a teekhi mirchi ? *wink wink* )

Fact #11. In India, a polling station is set up in a forest for a lone voter in every election since 2004. (Now this makes me believe Human Rights originated in India)

Fact #12. India has more population than the entire Western Hemisphere on Earth. (Woaah...I'm speechless right now.)

Fact #13. Now this is for all the couples.There is a vigilante group in India known as the "Love Commandos" who protect people who fall in love from different castes from harassment. (Fall in love? Settle in India)

Fact #14. The airline "Go Air" hires only female flight attendants because they are lighter. Proof: The airline saves upto US $500,000 every year on fuel.   (Boys, need I recommend which airline to use?) *hehe*

Fact #15. Indian housewives hold 11% of the world's gold. This is the combined reserves of US, Ireland, Switzerland and Germany put together. (NEVER cry that you are poor)

So much did you score ? Go up and rate yourselves.

Mira Road's Son and now Hero - RIP Major Kaustubh Rane

A son, a husband, a father and now a HERO. Gone too soon but not in vain. 

Major Kaustubh Rane (29), resident of Mira Road, lost his life Rane, 29, lost his life fighting for the nation in the Gurez Sector of Jammu & Kashmir on August 7. He was among the four Army personnel killed in a gunfight with terrorists near the LoC in the Bandipura district on Tuesday. His coffin arrived late on Wednesday night and the last rites took place on Thursday morning with full military honours (he was decorated with the Sena Gallantry Medal by President Ram Nath Kovind on the 69th Republic Day celebrations this year).



Police had cordoned off the entire area around his building. Thousands of emotional onlookers (practically 3/4 of Mira Road's population) lined up alongside the road or from building tops and terraces to pay their respects and bid farewell to the man who made them proud and sacrificed himself to ensure their safety.

Close Encounters - Spotting a LEOPARD 12ft away @Nagpur

Presentations, college activities and research work had become my life. Spending 4-5 hours on the laptop and another 3 on the phone had become an everyday thing. Not that I was complaining, but when my college's Nature Club teacher in-charge Prof. Radhika D'Souza asked me if I would like to come on a 4 night, 5 days trip to the Nagzira Tiger Reserve in Nagpur, I immediately said yes. The trip was scheduled from the 28th of December to the 1st of January 2019. This meant that I would be missing my birthday as well as New year in one shot. But trust me, I didn't regret my decision one bit.
Our train was from CST at 3pm. There were around 40 other people on the trip (whom, by the way I didn't know at all; except for a few. But I later on realized that it didn't matter who you knew or didn't know at the beginning of the trip. By the end of it, there wasn't a single person whom you couldn't smile at). This was to be my first long distance train journey. So I…
