married a wealthy widower Isaac in 1693. Together,

that meteorites were extra-terrestrial in origin and was 
hugely ridiculed. But the work that gave him much

  Contrary to speculation, the name had nothing to do
with the colour preferences or the religious beliefs of 
the local people. In reality, the idea of the name came to 
the mind of V. K. Nayar when he saw the advertising
hoarding of a desi company, a leading player in the
AC and Refrigerator market.
What name that still invokes lot of unpleasant
memories, was thus coined?

  The partition was a very dark chapter in the Indian 
subcontinent. As a mark of protest of this decision and 
the bloodshed all-around, the dare-devil editor of the 
newspaper ‘Hindu Rasthra’ decided to do something 
pretty outrageous on 15th
Aug, 1947.

  Charles De Gaulle, during one of his state visit, 
couldn’t manage to visit the office of British PM
Harold Macmillan as he was suffering from cold. 
Macmillan took offence of that issue. He exacted some 
kind of a ‘revenge’ in 1962 by deleting a certain
something. Though miniscule, the latter episode 
created enough diplomatic turmoil. It was reinstated 
in 1969.
What was the issue?

  Details from the oldest known oil paintings of the 
world was discovered quite dramatically. The 
artworks in that rugged terrain contained ‘drying oils’, 
most likely walnut and poppy-seed oils, which were 
key ingredients in oil-based paints. But in the ancient 
Mediterranean world, drying oils were hugely used in 
medicines, cosmetics, and perfumes.
