Ear Pain - Get instant relief much quicker than pills, antibiotics, this salt thing is a miracle.
EAR PAIN - Home remedy acts much quicker than pills & antibiotics - this salt thing is a miracle. - (गोलियों, एंटीबायोटिक दवाओं से बहुत तेज कान दर्द से तत्काल राहत प्राप्त करें) Last night my girl child was crying with ear pain. After observing her for half an hour I decided to take her to a hospital but again decided to test this home remedy on her as told by my grandmother. I found this as a home remedy last night which worked for my child. Cook 4 to 5 spoons of salt until brown, put in cloth and hold to ear (blocking out air with salt in towel over ear opening). Careful! Salt is very hot! Put it to the ear opening for a minute. Repeat this 10 to 15 times. My child went back to sleep and pain free for the whole night & she went to school the next day without complaining about her ear. This salt thing is a miracle! Nothing in the ear means no harm and nothing but relief. Try it! Test yourself if you have any ear pain. Much quicker than pills. BUT REMEMBER IF IT DOESN'T WORK CONSULT A DOCTOR BECAUSE FOREIGN BODY MAY ENTER THE EAR WHICH WILL NEED URGENT MEDICAL TREATMENT. If ear pain does not decrease using this technique then take around 3-4 nos. of fresh garlic & heat it slightly & take the garlic juice out by crushing the warm garlic & pour 2 drops of warm (not too hot) garlic juice into the ear suffering from pain to get instant relief from ear pain. For ear pain suffering from fungus apply onion juice into the ear to get relieve instantly.

In this video The Assam State Zoo cum Botanical Garden (popularly known as Guwahati Zoo) is the largest of its kind in the North East region and it is spread accross 432.432-acre (175 hectare) is shown. The zoo is located within the Hengrabari Reserved Forest at Guwahati, India. The zoo is home to about 895 animals, birds and reptiles representing almost 113 species of animals and birds from around the world. The 64th session of Indian National Congress was held in Guwahati, in the year 1957. The Organising committee of INC organised an exhibit with included few animals and birds, of which a female Leopard Cub named Spotty was the favourite. After the meeting came to an end, it was felt to necessity of a zoo to house these animals. These animals were shifted to Japorigog in the Hengrabari Reserve forest, with an area of 130 Hectare, suitable to create facilities and house these animals, thus, The Assam State Zoo was established in the year 1957 and was open to public viewing in the year 1958. The total number of animals and birds, at the time of its inception was 42 (22 species) and 236 (31 species) respectively. Over the years, the Zoo grew and expanded to accommodate eye-catching exotic ones like Chimpanzees, White Rhinos & Black Rhinos, Zebras, Ostriches and Giraffes from Africa; Puma, Jaguar and Llama from South America and Kangaroos from Australia. In the year 1959 a forest division was created as Assam State Zoo Division and the zoo was put under this division. The Assam State Zoo also added a Museum and in the year 1982 a Botanical Garden and so Assam State Zoo became The Assam State Zoo Cum Botanical Garden.

When will my baby start rolling over
In this video early stage of daily development of a baby is shown. In order for your baby to roll over he needs to have a strong upper body, good control of his head and neck, and be able to coordinate his arm and leg movements well. Most babies learn to roll from front to back first because front to back rolling requires less strength and coordination. Your baby may learn to roll from front to back as early as age 2-3 months. Rolling from back to front is a more difficult milestone and your baby may be 5-6 months before he starts rolling from back to front. In this video I'm showing a baby's first side rolling at the age of 3 years & 3 months. Rolling over requires a lot of upper body strength. Babies that don't get a lot of tummy time may take longer to start rolling over. Try to place your baby on his tummy when he is awake and alert. This will help him with rolling over and other developmental milestones. Tummy time should be supervised until your baby can roll over in both directions. The amazing thing about your baby's developmental milestones is that they don't happen when you are expecting them. One day your baby will barely be able to lift his head off the ground and the next he will be rolling over. This is why most parents have at least one incident where their baby rolls off the bed or sofa. Most babies can roll over by the time they are six months.

North East India's [Assam's (অসম)] first Express National highway (Service Road)
उत्तर पूर्व भारत का पहला एक्सप्रेस राष्ट्रीय राजमार्ग - অসম - This (India) Assam's National highway No. 37 will be the 1st (North East India's) Assam's express highway (SERVICE ROAD) at present it is under construction & will be fully completed within 1 ½ years i.e. by year 2013 or maybe 2014. National Highway 37 is a National Highway in India that runs from Panchratna (near Goalpara) across Assam state to Roing in Arunachal Pradesh. The total length of NH 37 is 740 km (460 mi). This newly built express highway is around 127 km. in length i.e. from Guwahati city to Nagaon town. I had travelled this highway around 04 times till now i.e. from the beginning of construction of this newly built highway & during this year 2012 (Oct.) 85% works has been completed & it feels great to drive your car at 3 digit. My car feels supremely stable at 3 digit speed on this newly built express highway no.37. The toll gate is also under construction near Nagaon. Before it use to take around 3 hours to reach Nagaon from Guwahati city but now it takes around 1 hours & 45 minutes to cross Nagaon Town via the newly built bypass of Nagaon Town. Imagine how much time would be saved if this National highway is fully built from Guwahati city (Lower Assam) upto Tinsukia or Doomdooma Town(Upper Assam). National Highway 37 branches off from NH 31 as NH 31B, crosses the Brahmaputra River at Goalpara and traverses the entire width of Assam state along the South of the River. The places along the highway are Guwahati (from where NH 40 bifurcates to Shillong), Nagaon (from where NH 36 bifurcates to Dimapur), Jorhat, Sibsagar, Dinjan, Dibrugarh and Tinsukia. This national highway number 37 passes through Kaziranga National Park in the state of Assam, and ends near Roing in the state of Arunachal Pradesh.

PAAN is an important and popular cultural activity in many Asian and Oceanic countries
In this video preparation of Paan at a Pan shop is shown. Paan, via Hindi: पान, from Sanskrit parṇa 'feather, leaf' is a stimulating, psychoactive preparation of betel leaf combined with areca nut and/or cured tobacco. Paan is chewed before spitting or swallowing. Paan has many variations. Slaked lime paste is commonly added to bind the leaves. Some South Asian preparations include katha paste or mukhwas to freshen the breath. It is mostly consumed in Asia, and elsewhere in the world by some. The International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) accept the scientific evidence that chewing betel quids and areca nut is carcinogenic to humans. The main carcinogenic factor is believed to be areca nut. A recent study found that areca-nut paan with and without tobacco increased oral cancer risk by 9.9 and 8.4 times, respectively. Scientific teams from Taiwan, Malaysia and Papua New Guinea have reported that women who chew areca nut formulations, such as paan, during pregnancy significantly increase adverse outcomes for the baby.

ডিব্ৰুগড় - Rajdhani Express Train connection & about Dibrugarh Town
Rajdhani train of India travels from capital to capital only & probably Dibrugarh town is the longest extension provided which is around 506 km. from Guwahati city to Dibrugarh Town & takes around 10-12 hours of time by train, which is very exceptional because Dibrugarh Town of Assam State is one of the oldest town of Assam & not the capital of Assam. Dibrugarh (Assamese: ডিব্ৰুগড়) city is the headquarters of Dibrugarh district,Of Assam India. it is one of the major towns of assam. The district of Dibrugarh with only one sub-division is situated in the eastern part of Assam. Dibrugarh Town Railway Station is one of the oldest railway station in India. A new railway junction named is being developed on the outskirts of the city at Banipur. It is the biggest railway junction in the entire north east (India) spreading over 400 bighas of land and it is 2 km in length. One goods yard is also being developed for loading and unloading of goods along with a truck shed, which would accommodate 25 trucks at a time. Dibrugarh district is surrounded by Dhemaji district in the north and a part of Lakhimpur district in the north-west, part of Sivasagar district to the west and Tinsukia district in the East. Rajdhani train runs from Dibrugarh Town to Delhi & return from Delhi city to Dibrugarh Town. History: Dibrugarh derived its name from Dibarumukh (as a renowned encampment of Ahoms during Ahom Sutiya War). Either the name Dibru evolved from Dibaru river or from the Dimasa word "Dibru" which means a blister and Garh meaning fort. Both "Dibru" or "Dibaru" is a Dimasa word. The Dimasas add prefix "Di"(which mean "water") wherever there is small stream of river or Big river in Town or city for e.g. Diphu ( which means White-water), Dimapur( City with great river)etc. When the British came to this region they constructed a fort on the bank of river Dibaru. Therefore, this might be considered as the source of the name Dibrugarh. The British arrived in Assam in the year 1826 as per Yandaboo Accord . They selected Dibrugarh as an administrative and commercial center in Upper Assam making Dibrugarh a hub of activity in this region of North-Eastern India. In the year 1842 Dibrugarh was announced as the Headquarter of Lakhimpur District. During World War-II the town was the principal military base and was used as a transit camp for the evacuees of Burma. In 1971 the Dibrugarh Sub-Division itself became a full fledged district. Later on the Tinsukia Sub-Division separated as district in 1989 from Dibrugarh District. Today Dibrugarh is a separate district with the District Headquarter in Dibrugarh. Dibrugarh being the District Head-quarter, is the hub of all economic development/activities happening around the district. Economic activities in the district is dominated by two major industries: Oil and natural gas, Tea production. It was in Digboi, 50 miles away from Dibrugarh, that the first oil well was dug during the British era. Today, Duliajan, Hugrijan and Moran are the key locations for oil and gas industry in the district. Duliajan also happens to be the headquarter of the Public Sector Undertaking Oil India Limited. Apart from this, Dibrugarh district boasts of the highest amount of tea production in India. There are several tea gardens dating back to the British era. The first being at Chabua, a place 20 miles away from Dibrugarh. Dibrugarh is also famous for wood and wood works, plywood factories in Margherita, (now under Tinsukia District) cane and bamboo furniture, etc. Cottage industries specializing in production of Assam silk (Muga Silk), phulam gamosa (a traditional piece of cloth, used as ornate head-scarf as well as towel), mekhela chador (the famous traditional pure silk dress of Assam state). Chador are also in vogue. Assam Medical College was formally established on 3 November 1947. It was, however, earlier known as Berry-White School of Medicine, which was founded in 1900. It has the distinction of being the first medical college in the entire North-eastern region of India. Following the establishment of 2 other medical colleges in Assam, one at Guwahati and another at Silchar, it now serves as the tertiary medical referral centre for the entire upper Assam as well as the some areas of neighbouring states, especially Arunachal Pradesh. The Assam Medical College was established by a personal grant from Dr. John Berry White after he retired as the civil surgeon of Lakhimpur district. The medical school, "John Berry White Medical School" was set up in 1900 at Dibrugarh, and thus this premier institute started its history, and marked a new era in education. Assam Medical College started the first Radiology Department in India, in year 1910, along with two X-Ray machine (One 10MA and another 15MA). The X-Ray Machines were bought from England, 15 years after the discovery of X-Rays by Professor Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen in 1895-96. These two were the first X-Ray machines in India.

Prathysha's first day at school
My daughter's first day in school at Maria Montessori House of Children, Guwahati. I used to remember my first day feeling at my school. My parents took a lot of snaps of me in my school uniform at my home & at my school. My Parents accompanied me to my school on the first day. Soon a teacher came and let me to my classroom. This was when some children began to cry as the parents were not allowed into the classrooms. I still remember I did not cry & my daughter also did not cry on her first day because I love & always wanted to go to school & wanted to make new friends & wanted to play with lots of friends from the age of 2 years. During the lunch break I was very happy to eat with my new friends. When the bell rang, I was first sad to leave my friends. After that, I was not at all frightened of school. My first day experience in school remains fresh in my mind and will remain forever.

Kaziranga National Park - কাজিৰঙা ৰাষ্ট্ৰীয় উদ্যান
Kaziranga National Park (Assamese: কাজিৰঙা ৰাষ্ট্ৰীয় উদ্যান) is a national park in the Golaghat and Nagaon districts of the state of Assam, India. A World Heritage Site, the park hosts two-thirds of the world's Great One-horned Rhinoceroses. Kaziranga boasts the highest density of tigers among protected areas in the world and was declared a Tiger Reserve in 2006. The park is home to large breeding populations of elephants, wild water buffalo, and swamp deer. Kaziranga is recognized as an Important Bird Area by Birdlife International for conservation of avifaunal species. Compared to other protected areas in India, Kaziranga has achieved notable success in wildlife conservation. Located on the edge of the Eastern Himalaya biodiversity hotspot, the park combines high species diversity and visibility.In 1985, Kaziranga was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO for its unique natural environment Kaziranga has witnessed several natural and human-made calamities in recent decades. Floods caused by overflowing of river Brahmaputra have led to significant losses of animal life. Encroachment by humans along the periphery also has led to a diminished forest cover and a loss of habitat. The park celebrated its centenary with much fanfare in 2005, inviting descendants of Baroness and Lord Curzon for the celebrations. In early 2007, elephants and two rhinoceros were relocated to Manas National Park, the first instance of relocation of elephants between national parks in India. Some historians believe, however, that the name, Kaziranga, was derived from the Karbi word Kajir-a-rang, which means "the village of Kajir" (kajiror gaon). Among the Karbis, Kajir is a common name for a girl child and it was believed that a woman named, Kajir, once ruled over the area. Fragments of monoliths associated with Karbi rule found scattered in the area seem to bear testimony to this assertion.

World's smallest habitat river island - Umananda island - दुनिया का सबसे छोटा निवास स्थान नदी द्वीप
উমানন্দ মন্দিৰ (In Assamese) Umananda Devaloi is a Shiva Temple is located at the Umananda (Peacock) island (PERHAPS THE WORLD SMALLEST HABITAT RIVER ISLAND) in middle of river Brahmaputra just opposite the office of the Deputy Commissioner of Kamrup or the Kachari Ghat in Guwahati. It was built by the Ahom King Gadadhar Singha (1681--1696) who was a devout Shaivait. Legend: Siva is said to have resided here in the form of Bhayananda. According to the Kalika Purana, in the beginning of the creation Siva sprinkled ashes (bhasma) at this place and imparted knowledge to Parvati (his consort). It is said that, when Siva was in meditation on this hillock, Kamadeva interrupted his yoga and was therefore burnt to ashes by the fire of Siva's anger and hence the hillock got the name Bhasmacala. This mountain is also called Bhasmakuta. The Kalika Purana states that Urvasikunda is situated here and here resides the goddess Urvasi who brings Amrit (nectar) for the enjoyment of Kamakhya and hence the island got the name Urvasi Island. The temple of Umananda was built in 1694 A.D. by the Bar Phukan Garhganya Handique by the order of King Gadadhar Singh (1681--1696), one of the ablest and strongest rulers of the Ahom dynasty. The original temple was however immensely damaged by a devastating earthquake of 1897. Later, it was reconstructed by a rich local merchant who chose to inscribe the interior part of a Siva temple with Vaisnavite slogans. The (Peacock) Umananda Island can be accessed from Guwahati and North Guwahati by ferries and Steamers. One can hire a ferry from Sukleshwar ghat or Fancy Bazar Ghat.

Greater Adjutant (Leptoptilos dubius) - living on the edge
The Greater Adjutant – now critically endangered - which is a member of the stork family, Ciconiidae is shown. UNFORTUNATELY AT PRESENT THIS BIRD IS ON ITS WAY TO EXTINCTION - ONLY A FEW OF THEM IS FIGHTING FOR ITS SURVIVAL ON EARTH. Its genus includes the Lesser Adjutant of Asia and the Marabou Stork of Africa. Once found widely across southern Asia, mainly in India but extending east to Borneo, the Greater Adjutant is now restricted to a much smaller range with only two small breeding populations; in India with the largest colony in Assam and the other in Cambodia. Populations disperse after the breeding season. This large stork has a massive wedge-shaped bill, a bare head and a distinctive neck pouch. During the day, they soar in thermals along with vultures with whom they share the habit of scavenging. They feed mainly on carrion and offal; however, they are opportunistic and will sometimes prey on vertebrates. The total population in 2008 was estimated at around a thousand individuals. Valued as scavengers, they were once used in the logo of the Calcutta Municipal Corporation.

Brahmaputra river - one of the major male river's of INDIA
In this video I am trying to show the Brahmaputra River, (named as the Son of the Creator of the Cosmos, in Hindu mythology) the only male river of INDIA & Father of the rivers of India (whereas all other majors rivers of India have female names) at three different places in Assam, from the highest to the lowest i.e from BURHI DIHING RIVER ( a large tributary of the Brahmaputra in Upper Assam), BRAHMAPUTRA RIVER AT DIBRUGARH TOWN & AT GUWAHATI CITY. Dihing or Burhi Dihing is a large tributary of the Brahmaputra in Upper Assam. The river originates in the Eastern Himalayas (the Patkai Mountain Range) in Arunachal Pradesh and flows through Tinsukia (Tinicukeeya) and Dibrugarh Districts in Assam to its confluence with the Brahmaputra at Dihingmukh. The Dihing has created number of oxbow lakes in the area. The Disam is a tributary of the Dihing in its southern bank. Ledo, Margherita, Digboi, Duliajan and Naharkatia (Nahorkotiya) are the small towns in its valley. Dihing is the one of the most important contributor to the Brahmaputra river. The Brahmaputra (Sanskrit: ब्रह्मपुत्र; Assamese: ব্ৰহ্মপুত্ৰ নদ; Brôhmôputrô), also called Tsangpo-Brahmaputra, is atransboundary river and one of the major rivers of Asia. With its origin from Talung Tso Lake in southwestern Tibet as the Yarlung Tsangpo River, it flows across southern Tibet to break through the Himalayas in great gorges (including the Yarlung Tsangpo Grand Canyon) and into Arunachal Pradesh(India) where it is known as Dihang or Siang. It flows southwest through the Assam Valley as Brahmaputra and south through Bangladesh as the Jamuna (not to be mistaken with Yamuna of India). In the vast Ganges Delta it merges with thePadma, the main distributary of the Ganges, then the Meghna, before emptying into the Bay of Bengal. During this year 2012 the Brahmaputra Dyke is renovated for the safety of Dibrugarh Town & the newly renovated Dyke will be 15 feet wide. New Stone Boulders had already been placed at the old Dyke for renovation as the old Brahmaputra river Dyke is 50 years old & need urgent renovation. The waters of the River Brahmaputra are shared by China, India, and Bangladesh. In the 1990s and 2000s, there was repeated speculation about China building a dam at the Great Bend, with a view to divert the waters to the north of the country. This was denied by the Chinese government for many years. However on 22 April 2010, China confirmed that it was indeed building the Zangmu Dam on the Brahmaputra.

World's largest river island - Majuli (ASSAM) INDIA - दुनिया का सबसे बड़ा नदी द्वीप
Please watch this full video at http://youtu.be/Dy-W20w5N-Y because while editing online using youtube video enhancement software this video became corrupt & only half of the video is viewable. In this video mode of association to the outside world has been shown to the people who wants to visit the World largest river island Majuli or Majoli (Assamese: মাজুলী) in the Brahmaputra river, in the Indian state of Assam during the month of December 2012. Majuli is situated at a distance of 20 km from Jorhat. One can take the bus or a hired taxi to the Nimaeti Steamer Ghat from where ferry services ply. The distance takes over three hours to cover, with three bus rides and two ferry rides. We decided to take our personal car for the journey. Majuli had a total area of 1,250 square kilometres (483 sq mi), but having lost significantly to erosion it has an area of only 421.65 square kilometres (163 sq mi) in 2001. During the year 2012 (June) 85% of Majuli island got submerged in flood water & may lose out to nature in the coming years. The island is formed by the Brahmaputra river in the south and the Kherkutia Xuti, a branch of the Brahmaputra, joined by the Subansiri River in the north. The island is about 200 kilometres east from the state's largest city — Guwahati. The island was formed due to course changes by the river Brahmaputra and its tributaries, mainly the Lohit. Majoli is also the abode of the Assamese neo-Vaisnavite culture. Originally, the island was a narrow and long piece of land called Majoli (land in the middle of two parallel rivers) that had Brahmaputra flowing in the north and the Burhidihing flowing in the south, till they met at Lakhu. Frequent earthquakes in the period 1661-1696 set the stage for a catastrophic flood in 1750 that continued for 15 days, which is mentioned in historical texts and reflected in folklore. As a result of this flood, the Brahmaputra split into two and a branches—one flowing along the original channel and the other flowing along the Burhidihing channel and the Majuli island was formed. The locals speak in the Assamese language. However, what is certain is Majuli has been the cultural capital of Assamese civilisation since the 16th century; based on written records describing the visit of Sankardeva — a 16th century social reformer. The island soon became the leading centre of Vaishavinism with the establishment of these satras. After the arrival of the British, the island was under the rule of the British till India gained independence in 1947. The main industry is agriculture, with paddy being the chief crop. Majuli has a rich and diverse agricultural tradition, with as many as a hundred different varieties of rice grown, all grown without pesticides or artificial fertilisers. Among the fascinating arrays of rice produced are the Komal Saul, a unique type of rice that can be eaten just after immersing the grains in warm water for fifteen minutes, and usually eaten as a breakfast cereal; Weaving is exquisite and intricate with the use of a variety of colours and textures of cotton and silk, especially 'muga' silk. The dwellers of Majuli are mostly tribal folk. These tribal are the mishing tribes from Arunachal Pradesh and who immigrated here centuries ago. Apart from them, the inhabitants are also from the Deori and Sonowal Kacharis tribes. Languages spoken here are Mishing, Assamese, Deori. The island has one hundred and forty four villages with a population of 150,000 and a density of 300 individuals per square km. The heart of all villages is the Namghar, where villagers episodically gather to sing and pray. It is the most important public place for the villagers. The inhabitants are expert navigators by boat; their expertise is most visible during the monsoon season when they navigate the turbulent waters of the Brahmaputra. Extremism is also a major concern in the region. The insurgent group the ULFA, has a wide network in the region. The island has been the hub of Assamese neo-Vaishnavite culture, initiated around 15th century by the revered Assamese saint Srimanta Sankardeva. Sixty-five out of the six hundred and sixty-five original satras in Assam were situated in Majuli.

High security registration plates (HSRP) seem to have run into a hurdle in INDIA
The transport department's efforts to get new vehicle owners to opt for the high security registration plates (HSRP) seem to have run into a hurdle. Despite a notification that made it mandatory for dealers to affix the secure number plates before delivering the vehicle, no Car or Two wheeler dealers are ready to get the new number plates fixed before delivering the vehicle. This is despite the fact that high-security registration plates are mandatory for new vehicles. "The dealers have been handing over the vehicles with the older number plates, as they claim the court had never put the onus of fixing the HSRP on them." As a result the buyers of the new four or two wheelers have to face all the problems if they want the high security registration plates (HSRP) on their new vehicles. In this video you can see how the people are crowding & the official provided by the agency for fitting the high security registration plates (HSRP) are actually not authorized to open a new car while fitting the HSRP because the warranty period of a new car becomes void if a new car is opened by any unauthorized person except provided by the Car manufacturer/service center/Dealers. I had not shown one portion of the video while fitting the high security registration plates (HSRP) on my vehicle due to security reasons which is actually desired to be opened only by people provided from the Car dealer's side for maintaining a new car's warranty. For fitting the HSRP in some car models (as happened to mine) one has to open the plastic covers covering the number plate lights situated inside the car dickey, which may malfunction once it is open by any non-technical person(which is actually desired to be opened only by the Car Dealer's people for maintaining warranty of a new car).

World's oldest operating oil refinery & Assam's longest straightest national highway
অসম - Assam's longest straightest national highway will take you to the WORLD'S OLDEST OPERATING OIL REFINERY & BIRTH PLACE OF INDIAN OIL INDUSTRY - National Highway No. 38 Route: This road is Assam's longest straightest highway & starts from Makum & leads to Digboi - Margherita - Ledo - Likhapani. Distance between Digboi and Makum is 19 KM (kilometers) and 316.28 meters. Time difference between Digboi and Makum is 0.0106666666667 decimal hours (0 : 0 : 38.4). DIGBOI boasts of two modern wonders of the world -- a hundred-year-old oil field still producing and the world's oldest operating oil refinery - BIRTH PLACE OF INDIAN OIL INDUSTRY. Crude oil was discovered here in late 19th century, in a span of ten years when the discovery of Oil took place in first Oil drilling in the world. It has eighteen holes golf course as part of the Digboi Club. It has guest houses and tourist residential apartments laid on Italian architectural plan to promote tourism in upper Assam. "'Dig boy, dig', shouted the Canadian engineer, Mr W L Lake, at his men as they watched elephants emerging out of the dense forest with oil stains on their feet". In the 1860s. one English prospector out looking for cold saw bubbles of oil and shale surfacing around here. At that time the river named "Buri Deheing" was surrounded by thick jungles.By 1890 the first oil well started spudding. And in 1901 the Digboi Oil Refinery started producing petrol and kerosene. It is said that the town gets its name from the phrase "dig-boy-dig," which is what the English told the labourers as they dug for crude oil. The English started a small oil installation. India (and Asia) obtained its first refinery in Digboi in the year 1901. Assam Oil Company was formed in 1899 to look after the running of the oil business in this area. The Digboi oil field produced close to 7,000 barrels per day (1,100 m3/d) of crude oil at its peak, which was during World War II. The current production from the Digboi fields is about 240 barrels per day (38 m3/d). Over 1,000 wells have been drilled at Digboi -- the first well in 1889 had stuck oil at 178 feet (54 m). In 1989, the Department of Posts, India came out with a stamp commemorating 100 years of the Digboi fields. Today, though the crude production is not high, Now a division of Indian Oil Corporation, had a capacity of about 0.65 MMTPA as of 2003. Digboi is now Headquarter of Assam Oil Division of Indian Oil Corporation Limited. Tucked amid blue hills and undulating plains carpeted with emerald green tea plantations, Digboi still retains its colonial ambience. It's simply breathtaking to have a bird's eye view of Digboi from the famous Ridge Hill point. On clear days, one can also see the snow- covered mountains of the eastern Himalayas. NATIONAL OIL PARK: Digboi also has an oil museum and a wildlife sanctuary of unsurpassed beauty. Going down the hill, visitors will come across oil derricks of various types and other devices still declaring the glory and marvel of the now outdated innovations of the last forties. If one comes down from the hill on the other side, one will have the greatest sight of his lifetime. One may also bump across a herd of elephants or a Royal Bengal Tiger, besides some rare species of birds. Places like Margherita and Ledo are famous for open cast coal mining. Office of the Chief General Manager of North Eastern Coal Fields, Coal India Ltd. is located in Margherita town. MARGHERITA: the centre of tea gardens, plywood factories and coal mines, with many picnic spots dotting the sandy banks of the River Dihing. Cool, misty and away from the mainland, breathing in the aroma of fresh tea leaves is an experience, both rare and heartwarming. The tea gardens here are perhaps the best in the world. MAKUM once had a thriving community of Chinese, who settled down in the area in the 1830s. The Chinatown was closed in 1962, on the outbreak of the Sino-Indian War, as Assam was within close proximity to the border region. The Chinatown (now known as Chinapatty) is now inhabited by local population but a large part of the Chinese house structures are still the same as left by the Chinese. Author Rita Choudhury wrote a book on the ordeal of the Chinese community called Makam itself. A Durga Puja which has been celebrated by the people of China patty since 1982 & it is too special because of without differentiation of community (e.g; Hindu,Muslim, Sikh, Buddhist & Christian) all are Connected through this Shree Shree Durga Puja Committee. We should salute them & learn from them the actual meaning of Humanity. The word MAKUM is of Chinese origin literally means "meeting point". It is the meeting point of three premier towns of upper Assam namely Tinsukia, Digboi and Doomdooma. The National Highway-37 and National Highway-38 meet at Makum. The railway junction of Makum is the easternmost railway junction of the Indian Railways.The rail line became operational as early as 16 July 1883.

Deep water boring in Guwahti city due to heavy drinking water crises Part I - a video
Water is drying up in Guwahati city day by day. My residence's old boring (water) is almost dried up which was bored around 350 feet dip in search of drinking water. Now a fresh water boring is in progress on 03.07.2012 in search of drinking water which is estimated to go dip around 500 feet + & will cost around Rs.3.50 lakhs. Gamon water project is also in progress to supply drinking water to the people of Guwahati city, which will take a time of around 2 - 3 years from this current year 2012. During this summer season the ground water should have been at the highest upper level but it seems the ground water is getting depleted day by day. Time will only tell if Guwahati will be able to solve the drinking water problem because the area of Guwahati city does not suck the rain water like that of Dibrugarh or Jorhat Town which result in lack of ground water. During winter season the Brahmaputra river also used to dry up which leads to more depletion of ground water in Guwahati city. If the Brahmaputra river of Guwahati city dries up during winter season due to the new Dam built by China, which was open during this year 2012 & will be fully functional then Guwahati city may not be able to meet the demand of water for the people of Guwahati city, which will create chaos among the people of Guwahati city.

Gateway of North East Region of India (Guwahati city) - भारत के पूर्वोत्तर क्षेत्र के गेटवे
Guwahati (Assamese: গুৱাহাটী) - formerly known as Pragjyotishpura (Sanskrit: प्राग्ज्योतिषपुर) and Durjoya (Sanskrit:दुर्जय) in ancient Assam, and Gauhati in the modern era — is an ancient urban area, the largest city of Assam, the largest metropolitan area in north-eastern India, one of the fastest developing cities in India and often referred as "gateway" of the North East Region. Guwahati, formerly Prāgjyotishpura meaning "city of eastern light,", "city of eastern astrology", and Durjaya meaning "impregnable" were the capitals of the ancient state of Kamarupa under Varman's and Pala's respectively. Many ancient Hindu temples are in the city, Kamakhya, Umananda, Navagraha, Sukreswar, Basistha, Lankeshwar, Doul Govinda, Dirgheshwari, Ugro Tara, Rudreswar etc., are but a few. It is also known as the "The City of Temples." Dispur, the capital of the Indian state of Assam is in the city and is the seat of the Government of Assam. The city is between the southern bank of the Brahmaputra river and the foothills of the Shillong plateau, with LGB International Airport to the west and the town of Narengi to the east. It is gradually being expanded as North Guwahati to the northern bank of the Brahmaputra. The Guwahati Municipal Corporation, the city's local government, administers an area of 216 km², while the Guwahati Metropolitan Development Authority, the planning and development administers an area of 340 km². Guwahati is the major commercial and educational hub of North-East India and is home to world class institutions such as the Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati and other premier institutions like Gauhati University and Cotton College. The city is a major center for cultural activities and sports in the North Eastern region and for the administrative and political activities of Assam. Etymology : The name Guwahati is two Assamese words: 'guwa' (areca nut) and 'haat' (market place). The name used to be spelled as Gowhatty (pre-colonial and colonial), standardized to Gauhati (colonial-British), which was then changed to the present form in the late 1980s to conform to the local pronunciation. History : Guwahati's myths and history go back several thousands of years. Although the date of the city's beginning is unknown, references in the epics, Puranas, and other traditional histories, lead many to assume that it is one of the ancient cities of Asia. Epigraphic sources place the capitals of many ancient kingdoms in Guwahati. It was the capital of the mythological kings Narakasura and Bhagadatta according to the Mahabharata. The ancient sakti temple of Goddess Kamakhya in Nilachal hill (an important seat of Tantric and Vajrayana Buddhism), the ancient and unique astrological temple Navagraha in Chitrachal Hill, and archaeological remains in Basista and other locations support the mythological assertions of the city's ancient past. The Ambari excavations trace the city to the 6th century AD. It was known as Pragjyotishpura and Durjoya in different periods and was the capital under the Varman Dynasty and the Pala dynasties of the Kamarupa kingdom. Descriptions by Xuanzang (Hiuen Tsang) reveal that during the greatest Varman king Bhaskar Varman (7th century AD), the city stretched for about 30 li (15 km) and was probably the principal base for his strong naval force (30,000 war-boats, with officers who were knowledgeable of the sea-routes from the Indian Ocean to China - Xuanzang). The city remained as the capital of Assam till the 10th-11th century AD under the rulers of the Pala dynasty. Excavations in Ambari and the brick walls and houses excavated during construction of the present Cotton College's auditorium suggest that it was a city of great size with economic and strategic importance until the 9th-11th century AD. During medieval times between the 12th and 15th centuries AD, after the destruction of the Kamata kingdom, the city lost its earlier glory and became mainly a strategic outpost of the Koch Hajo and Ahom kingdoms of western and eastern Assam. When the western part of the Koch Kingdom (Koch Bihar) fell to the Mughals, the eastern half (Koch Hajo) eventually became a protectorate of Ahom. Although the border between the powers (Ahoms and Mughals) fluctuated between the Kartoya river (now in North Bengal) to the Manas and Barnadi rivers, Guwahati remained an important outpost. The city was the seat of the Borphukan, the civil military authority of the lower Assam region appointed by the Ahom kings. The most important archaeological site is the Ambari excavation site close to Dighalipukhuri.

Celebrating my daughter's first birthday
One of the most important events I would like to remember in my life was the day I helped celebrate my only daughter's first birthday on my rented residence in Guwahati city (Assam - INDIA). It was the twenty of December 2009. I had eagerly awaited this day since she was born, and to help with the celebration, I invited a small crowd of children of my residence building to our home for a birthday party and cookout. Getting prepared for this eventful day was exciting. Sending out invitations, buying the food, party favors for the children, and most importantly, choosing what kind of cake to get. The cake was a half of a sheet, which was able to feed up to 20 people. It was made with fresh strawberries surrounded with butter cream icing on top. On her birthday day, her joy knows no bounds. Because she knows even she is only one year old that it is a celebration in which she is the central figure and all eyes are set on her, and that she is the queen of the occasion.

Eyeliner (Kajol in India) has been used as early as 10,000 BC
In this video applying eyeliner to my child is shown. Eyeliner or known as Kajol in India was first used in Ancient Middle East and Mesopotamia as a dark black line around the eyes. As early as 10,000 BC, Egyptians wore various cosmetics not only for aesthetics but to protect the skin from the desert sun. Research has also speculated that eyeliner was worn to protect the wearer from the evil eye. The characteristic of having heavily lined eyes has been frequently depicted in Egyptian art. They produced eyeliner with a variety of materials including lead, copper ore and antimony (see Kohl (cosmetics). Eyeliner is commonly used as a daily make up routine to define the eye or create the look of a wider or smaller eye. Eyeliner can be used as a tool to create various looks as well as highlighting different features of the eyes. Whether it be with a winged eyeliner or tight lined at the waterline, eyeliner can be placed in various parts of the eye to create different looks. Eyeliner can be drawn above upper lashes or below lower lashes or both, even on the water lines of your eyes. Its primary purpose is to make the lashes look lush, but it also draws attention to the eye and can enhance or even change the eye's shape. Eyeliner is available in a wide range of hues, from the common black, brown and grey to more adventurous shades such as bright primary colors, pastels, frosty silvers and golds, white and even glitter-flecked colors.

World's biggest, oldest trees are dying
In this video I would like to highlight that Scientist has warned of an alarming increase in the death rate of the largest living organisms on the planet, the giant, old trees that harbour and sustain countless birds and wildlife. It has been observed by scientists that worldwide were in danger of losing forever their largest and oldest tress unless there were policy changes to better protect them. Just as large-bodied animals such as elephants, tigers and cetaceans have declined drastically in many parts of the world, a growing body of evidence suggests that large old trees could be equally imperiled.

Bear are active during the night (nocturnal) or twilight
Bears are mammals of the family Ursidae. Bears are classified as caniforms, or doglike carnivorans, with the pinnipeds being their closest living relatives. Bears are found on the continents of North America,South America, Europe, and Asia. Common characteristics of modern bears include a large body with stocky legs, a long snout, shaggy hair, plantigrade paws with five nonretractile claws, and a short tail. While the polar bear is mostly carnivorous and the giant panda feeds almost entirely on bamboo, the remaining six species are omnivorous, with varied diets. With the exceptions of courting individuals and mothers with their young, bears are typically solitary animals. They are generally diurnal, but may be active during the night (nocturnal) or twilight (crepuscular), particularly around humans. Bears use shelters, such as caves and burrows, as their dens: most species occupy their dens during the winter for a long period of sleep similar to hibernation.

Stump tailed macaque   a baby video
In this vide the stump-tailed macaque baby, which was born at Guwahati Zoo during the year 2011 is shown. The stump-tailed macaque (Macaca arctoides), also called the bear macaque, is a species of macaque found in Southern Asia. In India, it is found in south of the Brahmaputra river, in northeastern part of the country.Its range in India extends from Assam and Meghalaya to eastern Aruanchal Pradesh, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram and Tripura.

The Great White Pelican, Pelecanus onocrotalus
The Great White Pelican, Pelecanus onocrotalus also known as the Eastern White Pelican or White Pelican is a bird in the pelican family - enjoying the water. It breeds from southeastern Europe through Asia and in Africa in swamps and shallow lakes. Great White Pelicans are large birds with mass of 10 kg (22 lbs), 160 cm (63 in) long and with a 280 cm (110 inch) wingspan. It differs from the Dalmatian Pelican, the only larger species of pelican, by its pure white, rather than greyish-white, plumage, a bare pink facial patch around the eye and pinkish legs. Males are larger than females, and have a long beak that grows in a downwards arc, as opposed to the shorter, straighter beak of the female. Immature birds are grey and have dark flight feathers. In flight, it is an elegant soaring bird, with the head held close to and aligned with the body by a downward bend in the neck. In breeding condition the male has pinkish skin on is face and the female has orangery skin. The Great White Pelican is well adapted for aquatic life. The short strong legs and webbed feet propel it in water and aid the rather awkward takeoff from the water surface. Once aloft, the long-winged pelicans are powerful fliers, however, and often travel in spectacular V-formation groups. The pelican's pouch is simply a scoop. As the pelican pushes its bill underwater, the lower bill bows out, creating a large pouch which fills with water and fish. As the bird lifts its head, the pouch contracts, forcing out the water but retaining the fish. A group of 6 to 8 great white pelicans will gather in a horseshoe formation in the water to feed together. They dip their bills in unison, creating a circle of open pouches, ready to trap every fish in the area. Large numbers of these pelicans breed together in colonies. The female lays 2 to 4 eggs. Nest location varies with some populations making stick nests in trees and others, such as those in Africa, nesting exclusively in scrapes on the ground lined with grass, sticks, feathers and other material. The young are cared for by both parents.

Fish at 32,000 species exhibit greater species diversity than any other group of vertebrates.
In this video I'm trying to show some varieties of fish. At 32,000 species, fish exhibit greater species diversity than any other group of vertebrates. A fish is any member of a paraphyletic group of organisms that consist of all gill-bearing aquatic craniate animals that lack limbs with digits. Most fish are ectothermic ("cold-blooded"), allowing their body temperatures to vary as ambient temperatures change, though some of the large active swimmers like white shark and tuna can hold a higher core temperature. Fish do not represent a monophyletic group, and therefore the "evolution of fish" is not studied as a single event.

Mimosa pudica (touch-me-not) shy, bashful or shrinking also called sensitive plant
In this video the plant Mimosa pudica, which is well known for its rapid plant movement is shown. Like a number of other plant species, it undergoes changes in leaf orientation termed "sleep" or nyctinastic movement. The foliage closes during darkness and reopens in light. The leaves also close under various other stimuli, such as touching, warming, blowing, or shaking. These types of movements have been termed seismonastic movements. The movement occurs when specific regions of cells lose turgor pressure, which is the force that is applied onto the cell wall by water within the cell vacuoles and other cell contents. When the plant is disturbed, specific regions on the stems are stimulated to release chemicals including potassium ions which force water out of the cell vacuoles and the water diffuses out of the cells, producing a loss of cell pressure and cell collapse. The stimulus can also be transmitted to neighboring leaves. It is not known exactly why Mimosa pudica evolved this trait, but many scientists think that the plant uses its ability to shrink as a defense from predators. Animals may be afraid of a fast moving plant and would rather eat a less active one. Another possible explanation is that the sudden movement dislodges harmful insects.

Don't get caught up watching a movie during office hours/works
This video was captured with my mobile camera & want to show how an employee is doing his job & enjoying a movie at his office computer. I don't know if it is a new working style at an office. Work + entertainment (watching a movie) = Office Work. But life isn't fair. "People often say 'it's unfair that he gets away with doing nothing,' but at the end of the day, it really doesn't change anything," Also remember don't spend your day focusing on the fact that your lazy co-worker is constantly checking movies/Facebook, texting or snoring at the desk next to yours. Don't complain to other colleagues. It's unprofessional. "You could cause misunderstandings and hurt feelings," Then what can you do if you find somebody like this.... just enjoy.

Flower's primary purpose (botanical function) is reproduction
A flower, sometimes known as a bloom or blossom, is the reproductive structure found in flowering plants. The biological function of a flower is to effect reproduction, usually by providing a mechanism for the union of sperm with eggs. Flowers may facilitate outcrossing (fusion of sperm and eggs from different individuals in a population) or allow selfing (fusion of sperm and egg from the same flower). Some flowers produce diaspores without fertilization (parthenocarpy). Flowers contain sporangia and are the site where gametophytes develop. Flowers give rise to fruit and seeds. Many flowers have evolved to be attractive to animals, so as to cause them to be vectors for the transfer of pollen. In addition to facilitating the reproduction of flowering plants, flowers have long been admired and used by humans to beautify their environment, and also as objects of romance, ritual, religion, medicine and as a source of food. The primary purpose of a flower is reproduction. Since the flowers are the reproductive organs of plant, they mediate the joining of the sperm, contained within pollen, to the ovules — contained in the ovary. Pollination is the movement of pollen from the anthers to the stigma. The joining of the sperm to the ovules is called fertilization. Normally pollen is moved from one plant to another, but many plants are able to self pollinate. The fertilized ovules produce seeds that are the next generation. Sexual reproduction produces genetically unique offspring, allowing for adaptation. Flowers have specific designs which encourages the transfer of pollen from one plant to another of the same species. Many plants are dependent upon external factors for pollination, including: wind and animals, and especially insects. Even large animals such as birds, bats, and pygmy possums can be employed. The period of time during which this process can take place (the flower is fully expanded and functional) is called anthesis.

Snakes are found on every continent except Antarctica, in the Pacific and Indian Oceans
In this video I am trying to show some kind of snakes, which are found in Assam. Snakes are elongate, legless, carnivorous reptiles of the suborder Serpentes that can be distinguished from legless lizards by their lack of eyelids and external ears. Like all squamates, snakes are ectothermic, amniote vertebrates covered in overlapping scales. Many species of snakes have skulls with many more joints than their lizard ancestors, enabling them to swallow prey much larger than their heads with their highly mobile jaws. Living snakes are found on every continent except Antarctica, in the Pacific and Indian Oceans, and on most smaller land masses — exceptions include some large islands, such as Ireland and New Zealand and many small islands of the Atlantic and central Pacific. More than 20 families are currently recognized, comprising about 500 genera and about 3,400 species. They range in size from the tiny, 10 cm-long thread snake to the Reticulated python of up to 8.7 meters (29 ft) in length. The fossil species Titanoboa cerrejonensis was 15 meters (49 ft) long. Snakes are thought to have evolved from either burrowing or aquatic lizards during the mid-Cretaceous period, and the earliest known fossils date to around 112 Ma ago. In some Asian countries, the use of snakes in alcohol is also accepted. In such cases, the body of a snake or several snakes is left to steep in a jar or container of liquor. It is claimed that this makes the liquor stronger (as well as more expensive). One example of this is the Habu snake sometimes placed in the Okinawan liquor Awamori also known as "Habu Sake".
