Elephanta caves - historical place to visit in Mumbai

नमस्कार मेरे दोस्तों, मई महीना शुरू हो गया है और गर्मी जोरो शोरो से बढ़ रही है लेकिन एक बात है, मई महीने में ही सभी पाठशालाओं को छुट्टियां मिल जाती है. आपने भी इन छुट्टियों में किसी अद्भुत एवं खूबसूरत जगहों पर छुट्टियां बिताने की सोच रखी होगी. आज मैं मेरे मुंबई के सफर के बारे में कुछ रोचक बातें बताने वाला हूं. मुंबई मेरा पसंदीदा ट्रेवल डेस्टिनेशन है, आप सभी को तो पता ही है की मुंबई देश की इकोनॉमीकल राजधानी है. मुंबई शहर का विकास अंग्रेजो के शासन में हुआ. वैसे देखा जाए तो मुंबई सात छोटे-छोटे द्वीपों से बना हुआ एक शहर है. इसकी आबादी आज आसमान को छू रही है, लेकिन इसी आबादी वाले शहर में बहुत सारी ऐसी चीजें हैं कि जो आप देखना पसंद करोगे. पिछले साल जब छुट्टियां थी तब मैं भी मेरे दोस्तों के साथ मुंबई देखने के लिए चल पड़ा था. मैं अब थोड़ा आपको मुंबई के बारे में बताना चाहता हूं. मुंबई भारत के महाराष्ट्र राज्य की राजधानी है और लगभग तीन से चार करोड़ लोक मुंबई में रहते हैं. अंग्रेज़ों के जमाने से ही मुंबई का बहुत विकास हुआ है और अंग्रेजों ने मुंबई में कई ऐसी जगह विकसित की है की जो आज पर्यटकों के लिए स्वर्ग का अनुभव देती है. वैसे देखा जाए तो मुंबई में एक से बढ़कर एक देखने की जगह है अगर सभी को इस लेख में साझा किया जाए तो पन्ने कम पड़ जाएंगे इतने सारे अद्भुत और देखने लायक डेस्टिनेशन से मुंबई भरा पड़ा है. इसलिए आज मैं मेरे मुंबई के सफ़र की कुछ खास बातें ही बताने वाला हूं जैसे कि एक है एलिफेंटा गुफ़ाएँ।  
वैसे देखा जाए तो मेरी मुंबई की जर्नी 2 दिन की थी जिसमें हमें पूरी मुंबई घूम के देखनी थी लेकिन जब हम मुंबई पहुंचे तो पता चला एक-दो दिन में पूरी मुंबई देखना संभव ही नहीं है. हमने हमारी शुरुआत पुणे से की, हम चार मित्रों ने एक साथ मुंबई देखने का सोचा था इसलिए हम चारों ही मित्र एक दूसरे को सहायता करते हुए मुंबई जाने का प्लान बना रहे थे. हमारी जर्नी शुरू हुई पुणे के लोह गांव स्थित एयरपोर्ट से. हमने इससे पहले कभी भी हवाई जहाज में सफर नहीं किया था तो इसलिए हमारे ट्रैवल को और रोमांचकारी बनाने के लिए हमने पुणे से मुंबई को जाने वाली फ्लाइट पकड़ी। वैसे देखा जाए तो पुणे से मुंबई को जाने के लिए बहुत सारे हवाई जहाज उपलब्ध है और हवाई जहाज में सुविधा भी काफी अच्छी होती है. हवाई जहाजो का Flight Schedule काफी आरामदेह और अत्यंत सरल एवं उपयोगी है. हमारे हवाई जहाज ने जैसे ही टेक ऑफ़  किया तो सारे दोस्त खुशी से झूम उठे. लगभग 1 घंटे के अंदर हम मुंबई के हवाई अड्डे पर उतर गए उसके तुरंत बाद हम गेटवे ऑफ इंडिया की तरफ गए. गेट वे ऑफ इंडिया, छत्रपति शिवाजी टर्मिनल से बहुत नजदीक है. लगभग 20 मिनट चलने के बाद हम सभी दोस्त गेट वे ऑफ  इंडिया तक पहुंचे। उसके बाद पानी से सफर शुरू हुआ, समुंदर बहुत ही सुंदर लग रहा था. हमने एक किराए के नौका पर बैठने का फैसला कि जो 50 रुपयों मे एलिफेंटा के किनारे तक छोड़ता था. वह पानी का सफर बड़ा ही अद्भुत एवं रोमांचकारी था लगभग 50 से 60  मिनट के बाद हम लोग दूसरे किनारे पर पहुंचे कि जहां पर एलिफेंटा की गुफाएं मौजूद थी. 
एलिफेंटा गुफाओं को घारापुरी की गुफाएं भी कहते हैं. ये गुफाएं गेटवे ऑफ इंडिया से 12 किलोमीटर की दूरी पर स्थित है. कुल सात गुफाएं हैं कि जिस में प्राचीन भारत के देवी देवताओं का सुंदर वर्णन दिया हुआ है. यह गुफाएं पहाड़ को काटकर बनाई गई है और इनमें लगभग हर मूर्ति हिंदू धर्म के देवी-देवताओं से प्रेरित हुई है. इन सभी में से भगवान शंकर की त्रिमूर्ति सबसे आकर्षक है तथा बहुत ही प्रसिद्ध है. भारत सरकार के प्रयास से आज यह घारापुरी की गुफाएं विश्व में प्रसिद्ध हो गई है तथा यूनेस्को ने इन एलिफेंटा गुफाओं को विश्व धरोहर घोषित कर दिया है. आप जब भी मुंबई आए तो इन गुफाओं को देखना न भूलिएगा। इन गुफाओं को देखने के बाद हम सभी दोस्त हमारे अगले सफर की तरफ चल पड़े, हमने बाद में मुंबई में बहुत सारी जगहें देखीं लेकिन एलिफेंटा गुफाएं हमेशा हमारे मन मे घर कर गयी. ये गुफाएं हमें हमारे समृद्ध संस्कृति की याद दिलाती है. इन प्राचीन गुफाओं मे छुपा है हमारा गौरवशाली इतिहास, इसलिए इसे एक बार अवश्य देखे.

Tulsi plant - a good way to stay healthy

The most important and eco-friendly plant on earth is Tulsi. Indians worship the Tulsi plant from ancient times. Holy Basil has been revered for its medicinal value throughout India for thousands of years. Ayurvedic texts describe Holy Basil as a pillar of holistic herbal medicine and a goddess incarnated in plant form (the mother medicine of nature). Here we will look the most important properties and benefits of Tulsi to our Nature. We all know that how pollution impact environment so the impact of pollution can be reduce by using Tulsi plant. Having holy basil plant in front of the house is considered as one of the good practices in India. Let’s see why.

General information

It is an erect, many branched sub shrub, 30–60 cm tall with hairy stems and simple phyllotaxic green or purple leaves that are strongly scented. Tulasi is cultivated for religious and medicinal purposes, and for its essential oil. It is widely known across the Indian subcontinent as a medicinal plant and an herbal tea, commonly used in Ayurveda.

Cultivation Method

Tulsi can be grown any where easily by just spreading its seeds on the soil. Tulsi requires little water and no any fertilizer for growth. Tulsi can be easily cultivated around the house and in the backyard. Tulsi seeds are very small in size and are grown in bunches. Tulsi leaves have a unique smell and it is due the presence of special chemicals that makes Tulsi a strong medicine. In Ayurveda, Tulsi is used for treatment in many diseases.

Oil Spillage - A dangerous problem for environment

In this article we will briefly discuss about oil spillage in the water bodies. Oil spillage means release of petroleum products directly in to water bodies such as oceans and rivers. There were many incidences happened in past related with oil spillage. Oil spillage can also be occurred on land but the impact of oil spillage in water bodies is very high as compared to oil spillage on land. The largest oil spillage in history occurred in Kuwait and in USA. Millions of gallon crude oil was spilled in oceans.
When petroleum product such as crude oil, gasoline, diesel etc spilled in water bodies a layer is formed on the surface of water because the density of petroleum products are less as compared to the density of water. Density of petroleum product is in the range of 700 to 850 kg/m3 and that of water is 1000 kg/m3.
The layer of the petroleum products causes many problems. The first and most dangerous problem is petroleum products are nothing but the hydrocarbons having long chain compounds which are highly carcinogenic. These components remains in water bodies for thousands of year and can enter in any biological food chain very easily. Initially marine animals such as fish were contaminated and then the contamination transfers in to human beings. Direct drinking of petroleum infected water directly combines with human body. These hydrocarbons can penetrate the nucleus of cell and can interfere with the cell functioning. It is found by scientist that if any part of the land is contaminated by petroleum oils then that part of land will be affected for thousands of years and becomes unfertile. So it is always instructed to dispose petroleum product with almost care. Disposal of petroleum products is very critical and difficult task and it is always good to dispose the oils with the help of expert.
The next problem arise due to oil spillage is the problem to the marine animals and plants. As the water surface gets cover with the oil, oxygen from atmosphere cannot be mix with the water so the level of oxygen in water decreases and after some time the animals and fishes inside the water dies. The next problem is related with the photosynthesis of marine plants. As the surface of the water gets covered with oil, sun radiation cannot reach up to the bottom of the water body which adversely affects the photosynthesis process. All these effects impact very badly on the marine life.

So it is very important to avoid oil spillage in the water bodies as well as on lands. It is observed that there is very less awareness among the people regarding this issue. So the first step to eliminate this problem is to aware more and more people about oil spillage issue.

Sources of Air pollution

In this article we will discuss about air pollution and its impact on the entire environment. We all know that atmospheric air contains 78% nitrogen 21% oxygen 0.3% carbon dioxide and remaining other gases like ozone, helium, krypton, carbon monoxide etc. The present level of oxygen in the atmosphere is because of photosynthesis process of green plants. From late 18th century industrialization began in European countries and unnecessary gases such as CO2, NOx, SOx etc are released in the environment. These gases are very harmful to the living things and are considered to be top pollutants as far as air pollution is concerned. The problem of air pollution comes on our radar when smog level in Europe and china increases beyond the normal level and so many people were died in previous few decades. Now in this article we will discuss the causes of air pollution in details.
Reasons of Air pollution
In early time of industrial evolution high amount of coal were burn for metal industries. The main emission of coal industries are the carbon particles and very high amount of CO2 and CO. Coal thermal power plants also release very high amount of Carbon and other gases in the atmosphere. Then after coal power plants the next source of air pollution is the use of fire wood for cooking in the rural areas of Asia and Africa. There are so many countries in the Africa and Asia where fire wood is main source of energy for cooking. Also it is not possible for every household to perches advanced cooking technologies that runs on Natural gas or LPG. So the use of fire wood for cooking and water heating causes air pollution.
Then recently the biggest source of air pollutants is the automobile. Yes, it is right. An individual automobile will not impact the environment that much but when the quantity of automobiles used in entire world is considered then we can see that the amount of pollutants released in the atmosphere is very high. This problem is very serious because a single automobile user is not polluting the environment but all automobile users in the world together pollute the world. So it is very difficult to control the pollution caused by the automobiles.

Then the next reason of air pollution is the uncontrolled cutting of the trees. Plant absorbs atmospheric carbon dioxide and water from soil and converts it in to oxygen and starch in the presence of Sun light. This process is called as photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is the only natural source of oxygen and hence it is very important to have more and more number of plants on the earth. Due to civilization and industrialization the percentage of Forest area decreases rapidly. Hence deforestation is also one of the major reason of Air pollution.

When I was very young, I had the habit of making imaginary world around me and I was a king of my world. I used to talk with imaginary things like friends, birds, animals and trees. Mostly the imaginations were based on the cartoon serials and comic books which I saw at that time such as Duck tales, Star war, Captain yuom, Mogli etc. My grandfather and I visited a nearby library daily where I read so many comic books such as Chandoba, Champak, Thak-thak, Kishor, Chawa, Bankelal etc. Because of all these books and cartoons, I had developed so many characters in my imagination and with them I was playing day and night.
