My previous post regarding the Communal Violence Bill was felt to have had a strong communal overtone. It is still there in public domain as I stand by what I said then. Yet I decided to take a more moderate stand to convey the information in the Bill properly.
I AM SORRY IF SENTIMENTS HAVE BEEN HURT.
So here is the moderate and a more informative version of what I intended to convey then.
I have avoided using names of religions as far as possible.
Well it is a nice gesture and a very important duty of the Government of india to protect the interests of minorities. Yet this bill is a mere mockery of the federal system of which we are proud part of.

QUESTION : Why Is Earth Round???
An interesting question. Now, the first question that comes to my suspicious mind is "IS the earth round?" And the answer is no, at least not perfectly round. But it is round compared to your average cube, that is for sure! Now, my understanding of how solar systems form is pretty inadequate; all I can tell you is what I see on "Nova." But basically, I guess it has to do with gravity, which is a CENTRAL FORCE. What that means is that gravity pulls things together along a straight line, and the more massive one of the things is, the stronger it pulls. When the earth was forming, it was basically a big ball of dust left over from an exploded sun (a supernova). Gravity caused a lot of the matter to condense into a big fiery ball (our sun), but some of the dust was far enough away from the Sun so that the stronger forces were between planetary dust particles and not the sun. SO, they swirled together into a ball. You can see something similar when you make a painting with one of those "spin-art" machines; you put a card on the spinner, which whirls around real fast, and then you squirt paint on the card. The whirling causes the paint to go out away from the center (this is like the explosion of the supernova) and droplets go out along an interesting path until they stop, which happens when the spinning force is equal and opposite to the force which attaches paint to the card (this is like gravity). Now, if the force attaching paint to the card were not so strong,eventually the drops would get bigger - "planets."
|1.Who invented the # zero.
2.Where it was invented.
3. What happened.
4.Why they invented it.
5.How they invented it.
AnswerThe number zero was invented independently in India and by the Maya. In India a decimal system was used, like ours, but they used an empty space for zero up to 3rd Century BC. This was confusing for an empty space was also used to separate numbers, and so they invented the dot for a zero. The first evidence for the use of the symbol that we now know as zero stems from the 7th century AD. The Maya invented the number zero for their calendars in the 3rd century AD. The number zero reached European civilization through
the Arabs after 800 AD. The Greek and Roman did not need the number zero for they did their calculations on an abacus. The name 'zero' comes from the Arabic language.
AnswerIt was invented by a Hindu mathematician Aryabhatta in India before 400 BC on the basis of a vedik chant as below-
पूर्णमदः पूर्णमिदं पूर्णात् पूर्णमुदच्यते।
पूर्णस्य पूर्णमादाय पूर्णमेवावशिष्यते॥
That is Absolute, This is Absolute, Absolute arises out of Absolute
If Absolute is taken away from Absolute, Absolute remains. OM Peace, Peace, Peace.
Answerthe number zero was one of the last numbers invented beacause the ancient egyptions never used them and not many other countries at the time used maths.
AnswerWe are so accustomed with seeing the perfect circle, the zero that we cannot imagine it had to be invented. In fact, the invention of zero was a real revolution.
In Babylon (modern Iraq), arabs had invented the "zero" during the 4th century BC. But their numbering system was not transmitted to other people because of its peculiarity: the first group (that of the units) was not made of 10, but 60 figures. That corresponded to our system of time counting: one minute has 60 seconds, one hour has 60 minutes
There were also arabs, that used the zero as we know today, between words. to make sure you understood that the space was really empty there, they put a little raised dot. Well dots are easy to miss, so to make it a little blacker, the scribe would wiggle his pen around a little, which sometimes left a little hole in the middle of a small circle.
So we see that the arabs used the function of the zero that we know today, but they did not say it was a number.
One century after the Mayans, around the year 600 AD, Hindu savants invented too the figure "zero". They also invented the position numbering. Arabs learned this figure system from India. They even called them "Indian figures". During the 10th century, these numbers (0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8 and 9), slightly changed, were taken over by the Europeans from the Arabs, like many other important items.
