Jamun -Gubhaju’s-story

The story of Jamun Gubhaju of Patan is not less amazing than any other miracle. It goes like this:

One day, a self proclaimed magician from India came to Patan after fooling many people by his magic. Boasting of his unparallel talents, he cut open the stomach of his Jamura (assistant) and took off his heart and liver and placed on a banana leaf. But nothing was hidden to the Gubhaju of Patan, who was even a better magician. To break the self-conceit of the magician, Gubhaju promptly disguised himself as an eagle and flew high, carrying the heart and the liver, kept on the banana leaf.

The Snakes

Sep

Snakes are among the most dreaded animals, always feared and looked at with awe. Our blood almost clots to see them slithering from down the ridges and getting lost in the bushes nearby. We do not take the courage to take the same way once again, lest the snake should raise its hood, fork the fangs out, and bite. No, we don’t want to face that.

It might sound bizarre, but it happened in reality. It didn’t however come overnight.

These materials expand into an enormous escaping atmosphere called the coma, which becomes far bigger than a planet, and they are forced back into long tails of dust and gas by radiation and charged particles flowing from the Sun. Comets are cold bodies, and we see them only because the gases in their comae and tails fluoresce in sunlight and because of sunlight reflected from the solids.
