• Which states in india do the north torrid zone lie in?

    All of India (the whole of Indian subcontinent) lies in the Northern Hemisphere. Hence your particularly pointing, to “Northern” (in ‘Northern torrid zone’) is redundant.

    All of India (the whole of Indian subcontinent) lies in the Northern Hemisphere. Hence your particularly pointing, to “Northern” (in ‘Northern torrid zone’) is redundant. Tropic of Cancer (23°27’N) passes through the middle of India, cutting it into two halves, even in the Latitudes spread on both sides of Tropic of Cancer. The states falling in the torrid zone are – Union Territory of Andaman & Nicobar islands (in the Bay of Bengal), UT of Lakshadweep islands, Tamil Nadu (with Chennai city), UT of Puduchery, Kerala, Karnataka (with Bengaluru city), Maharashtra (with Mumbai city), Telangana (with Hyderabad city), Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, Chattisgarh (except its northern tip), half of Madhya Pradesh, Gujarat (except a quarter in north), a little bit (Dungarpur) of Rajasthan, half of Jharkhand, half of West Bengal (with Kolkata city), half of Tripura, major part of Mizoram & a little bit of Assam.

  • Are some people born racist?

    Except a few, all white people are racist, in a way. When I say this I include in my own people who are born fairly 'white' among us (I am dark, not black) that includes my wife (she may be mistaken as a Spaniard in USA for instance). Two of our three children inherited my skin colour & hence she has no 'skin disease' in her eyes. First information a human gets (ever since birth) is through 'Vision' or seeing. It (the human) assesses another person first by skin colour & feels affinity or other wise. It is natural. Racism is planted when it grows up & has tremendous effect & affects its relationship with other humans. Hence (that being so) there is an additional responsibility when the White race brings up their children. One thing I need to mention here, due to lack of pigmentation, the white (or blonde) skin is thin & prone to damage more than dark skin; lesser the damage for skin darker. It also puts some constraints. One can see more darker people working in harsher sunlight, in open. It sets that social cleavage too. Social norms & conduct are another thing. Racism in display & conduct (insulting others) is unacceptable behaviour & must be shunned as punishable, as it violates treating fellow humans unequally. Societal training (like in so many other things) is necessary. Now it is for you, to decide whether someone is born Racist or not. Skin disease (discrimination based on skin colour) must be cured.

It will be a needless (shitty) hassle that no war-fighting country would've to countenance. See what the complacency of Stalin (in the aftermath of von Ribbentrop pact with USSR) cost USSR in human terms - a (maximum) loss of lives at 40 million ! If you detach yourself from the humanitarian & emotional concerns, WW II was clean war (compressed to 6 years) & much cleaner (Nuclear) ending that I hope generals in the future wouldn't (want to) emulate.

    A young, Subhas Chandra Bose was elected the president of Congress Party much against the wishes of MK Gandhi, who conceded that it is 'his personal defeat'. Bose, disillusioned with the slow(peaceful) process of Congress party quit the party. He propounded a thesis that Indians should exploit the War to dislodge Britain from India by aligning with the Axis powers. He wanted an Axis win over Britain. Bulk of Congress who had no such hatred for British rule & who believed that it can be brought about by the process under way & didn't approve of the undemocratic militaristic/fascist/Nazi methods of Axis powers stuck to the Allies on this point. Bose escaped to Kabul by hoodwinking the British intelligence, growing a beard. From there he reached Berlin & met Hitler, for whom any stick is good enough to beat the British (Allies) with. He conveyed him to Japan in a German submarine where Bose was made an accomplice (quisling). When the Allied forces surrendered to Imperial Japanese forces (under Gen. Arthur Percival) at Singapore, the Indian PoWs formed the bulk. Shah Nawaz Khan among them organised them into a rebel force to collaborate with Japan . Just then Bose reached them under the tutelage of Japanese generals & raised, Azad Hind Fauz (Indian National Army). He was so ambitious that he saw India winning already. They captured Andamans & Nicobar (groups of) Islands in the Bay of Bengal. The 'liberated' islands were named 'Swaraj' (independence) & 'Shahid' (martyr) islands .This force(INA) along with the Japanese troops captured Burma totally. Then they marched on to India. They attacked from India's NE at Kohima (now capital of Nagaland state). In spite of bitterly fought battles, Britain was able to defend (of course with the ally US's help). In the whole War, India came out without a scratch even, but for this incident. Soon the tide turned & the Japanese were beaten back along with INA, who were taken prisoners. End of the story. Bose remained in Japan for a while & was on a plane journey to Formosa (Taiwan now) that was in Japanese possession. But the plane crashed hitting a mountain peak in Formosa & Bose was said to be killed. But zealots in India (in millions who deify Bose) believe that he escaped, to live incognito. The captured INA soldiers were tried in a court in Bombay, by the British government, probably to end in sentence of death. The best legal brains in India (90% of Congress party were lawyers, many of whom were Bar-at-Laws) worked hard to save them. A naval mutiny (first of its kind after 1857 Sepoy Mutiny) was also there that made the British position untenable. And after the War, contemplating giving independence to India they wanted no sour note to creep in, when they exit India. Later the INA troops were rehabilitated. One can see now a big bazaar, 'INA market' in New Delhi, on land gifted by Indian government. Though it was a foot-note only in the freedom movement in India, it also shows how desperate the general Indian public was, testing the patience of MK Gandhi & his meticulously drafted program. It is to be expected that Indian people came to rally round INA (irrespective of the political differences) in its need of hour. Even now, Bose in his military regalia. adorns the first place in the (wall) photos of Indian houses- as the foremost patriot.

    The International Date-line is a convention that we humans adapted. Else it doesn't matter as a circle (that Equator is) has no beginning nor end. As a convention (again) that we adapted as in opposite (diametrical) end, from Greenwich. Greenwich was adapted as Longitude 0° only because of the observatory there, that can measure the transit of any star precisely to fix the time. After the age of navigation dawned, following the epic crossing of the Atlantic Ocean & (inadvertent) discovery of a new pair of continents (Americas) by Chris Columbus in 1495. It became very necessary to fix 'Time', as an input to fix the longitude. Greenwich is a suburb of London. It all started with the discovery of Eratosthenes of Earth's shape as a nearly Sphere (Let's not queer the pitch by bringing in the concept of oblate spheroid, as it being extremely small compared to the radius as established by Eratosthenes & proved to be correct). It is not that he was the first to establish, as there might be other cultures aware of it, though didn't measure it. Yet, he was the first in the Greek culture that happens to be the corner stone in the foundation for the modern global Science now. Coming back to your Q2- the day (as per convention) begins at the international date line or IDL (I learnt it from my Geography teacher in middle school), when it is noon (12 noon) in Greenwich of the day that is past or passing.

  • How come stars blink?

    Because they are point sources of Light (their enormous distances reduced them to that), any variation in atmospheric wind densities & speeds attenuate the Light received.

    Because they are point sources of Light (their enormous distances reduced them to that), any variation in atmospheric wind densities & speeds attenuate the Light received. It results in enormous variations causing the 'blinking'. On the contrary, a planetary body is an extended object. Its different parts (pixels, you may say) suffer these randomly. But the over all Light received from the total body, smoothens out the variation to make it give steady Light. It isn't that there is no variation, but the variable factor is tiny on top of the much bigger (stronger) steady amount or value.
