Very Short Fact: on this day in 1929, the Fascist government in Italy banned the use of foreign words.

In 1921, Fascism took off in regions affected by agrarian unrest, where the youthful rural bourgeoisie began to join in large numbers. Fascist squads began a violent campaign of intimidation against Catholics and Socialists, in which many hundreds were killed.

Slokas To Recite In The Morning.

For a Hindu, apart from performing the Morning Sandhyavandana, these slokas are to be recited.

One would notice that these Prayers are not only for the individual but foe the world as well.

An explanation of what radians measure: the angle in terms of the radius curved around the circle.

holy fucking shit, my entire education has just clicked.

I love seeing things click for other people (especially in math). That instant exhilaration is the reason math and science are fun for me.

"Arjuna said: O my dear Kṛṣṇa, I wish to know about prakṛti [nature], puruṣa [the enjoyer], and the field and the knower of the field, and of knowledge and the object of knowledge. The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: This body, O son of Kuntī, is called the field, and one who knows this body is called the knower of the field.

O scion of Bharata, you should understand that I am also the knower in all bodies, and to understand this body and its knower is called knowledge. That is My opinion.”

- Bhagavad Gita 13:1-3
