TEETH are like wives when they are there we quarrel with them & when we loss we cry from them. In short teeth are very precious & even after death a single tooth can make miracles .Recently two tooth have created wonders in Europe. Yes ,one tooth is one million years old & another is 3500 years old . By now you must be thinking that I am joking about one million years old tooth but it is very true .


A one million old tooth is recently unearthed by Spanish
Researchers . According to the researchers the tooth is the OLDEST HUMAN FOSSIL REMAIN ever discovered in Western Europe. Another tooth which is worth mentioning is the 3500 years old tooth which helped in identifying the mummy of Queen Hatshepsut. Queen Hatshepsut was one of the most powerful female pharaoh of Egypt .


Queen Hatshepsut was a female pharaoh who used to dress as a man & used to put artificial beard .She ruled EGYPT for 21 years about 3500 years ago.It is believed that she was obese & had many health related problems.Her death was a mystery & after her death she disappeared. In 1903 a mummy was discovered in Tomb KV 60 in the valley of the kings on Luxor's west bank but it remained unidentified. Recently after 105 years a tooth helped in identifying the mummy of Queen Hatshepsut.The tooth found in a box containing some of the queen's embeded organs perfectly matched a gap in the mummy's jaw.Thus enabling the researchers to identify queen Hatshepsut's mummy.

When I see people with Cross or Om sign tattooed on their body part I tremble with fear & start imagining of the pain they must have gone through while getting tattooed. So you can imagine my plight when I saw Isobel Varley who has tattooed her whole body except for her face ,neck , hands & soles of feet.

Isobel Varley 70 years old lady , born in Yorkshire England is a Guiness World Record Holder for maximum number of Tattoos on her body.She made her first
tattoo on 14th August 1986 at the studio of late Bill Cooke in London .The artist tattooed a bird on her right shoulder.

Mrs Varley got fascinated by the tattoo of bird & took appointment for second session in which she had an orchid as a tattoo on her left thigh& from than she continued her sessions & finally the day came when her whole body was inked completely for ever.

When Mrs Varley was interviewed, she said that the procedure was very painful & especially when it comes to tattooing of private parts . According to Isobel she loves the Tigress with her cubs tattoo on her stomach very much. Mrs Isobel Varley still wishes to beautify her body with some more tattoos however there is no place left.

As I am elucidating on women famous for Tattoos on their body , I remembered Queen Kamamalu of Hawaii who was born in 1802 & died on 8th July 1824

Queen Kamamalu made a tattoo on her tongue not for the purpose of beauty but to express her grief when she lost her mother in law.When Queen Kamamalu was undergoing the procedure some commented that she must be in tremendous pain but Queen replied that the pain is not greater than the pain she had on loosing her Mother in Law.

Both ladies are famous for the tattoos they made on their body , Mrs Varley went through the extreme pain for enhancing her beauty & Queen Kamamalu to express her grief when her mother in law expired.Thus both grand ladies deserves a big applause.Isn't it ?


In Bengal Baisakh is the first month of the year & Pohela or Poila Baisakh is the first day of the first month .On Poila Baisakh the Bengali's celebrate their NEW YEAR.It is the most auspicious day in Bengal & people prefer to marry , inaugurate ,buy new property on this day.People also renew their account books.Bengali's enjoy the day by wearing new attires & decorating their houses with flowers & rangolis.

The villagers of Sona Palasi in West Bengal celebrate their Poila Baisakh by parading & dancing on the beats of drums, carrying along with them unearthed human skulls & dead bodies of human babies. The villagers call this event as Narmundo Khela or Skull Game.The villagers claim that their heads dig the grave to get the dead bodies.The villagers perform this ritual to please Lord Shiva.

The procession carried out by the villagers is very horrifying but personally I feel that by carrying corpse of babies & skull no God is pleased it is just a way to please one's own self . Thus mal practices are carried out in the name of God.

Can you believe this ? Making babies cry is approximately 400 years old custom practised in Japan .Every year babies under one year are taken to temple , where they are paired. The Japanese Sumo wrestlers hold babies facing each other & the priest makes the babies cry .The baby who criees first or louder is considered winner.The Japanese believe that crying babies grow faster .The baby who cries first or louder is more blessed by God with good health . Every year this baby crying contest is held in Japan & this year 84 babies participated.
