The Ants are a special creation of God.
There are many varieties of Ants.The most
aggressive and dangerous are the red Ants commonly found everybehere.Generally,ants are friendly neighbours of humanity.
Black Ants ,also known as Carpenter Ants
are less aggressive and most defensive nature.They also bite when hurt.The pain and consequent inconvenience might last many hours.
Carpenter Ants prefer to establish their colonies in galleries excavated from damp or damaged wood.Tgey cut galleries into wood grains to form their nests and provide passage ways for movements from section to section of their nests.This activity produces wood shavings missed with dead ants which provides clues to nesting locations.carpenter ants clean their nesting sites and their galleries are not lined with mid or moist soil.Thevworkers ants keep their galleries as clean as sandpapered wood.in
In usual and natural environments theyvdwell both dead and living trees,stumps and rotting logs.However sometimes they build nests in Human houses and buildings also where wood is found especially where wood is extremely exposed to severe moisture.This is an indication how much intelligent these tiny insects.The carpenter Ant build two types of Nests.They are known as Parent colonies nests and Satellite colonies Nests.The later is a dependent colony of Parent colony.
The Parent colony has a Queen ,her incumbents and workers.There may be several satellite colonies in an area.The satellite colonies consists of older Larvae and pupae.Workerscreate different satellite colonies when there is a lack of space or of foodd and water in a parent colony.This indicates how clever and hard-working they are.Besides their Unity and willingness to work as one Unit is to be highly appreciated.This is how there are several Satellite colonies under a Parent colony.This also show shows how much systematic and organized the Ants are.The ants also does not eat wood as termites do.Instead removevwood and deposit debris in small piles outside their nests.Thus the life span of Ands are spent in building nests finding food and moving from place to place and serving fellow ants helping each other.They also look for food from the left over of human beings especially sweets and meats.They also feed on smaller insects.Thus they would appear to be friendly neighbours of people.
The main function of Queenis to lay eggs.
In the first year a Queen lays 9 to 16 eggs.The life Span of Queen is about 25 years.The eggs complete their life cycle
In about 6 to 12 weeks.Thus the Life of Ants is so Amazing that the human beings have several lessons to learn from them.
The First lesson to learn from Ants is the Hard-working nature.Theyvdo their work Systematically and move on happily.
If one observes the long line of Ants it could be seen that the outgoing ants allow incoming ants way and Space to move along as though the passengers of a crowded subarban train in Mumbai allow passengers to alight first before boarding a train.Perhaps the Mumbai passengers learnt this lesson from the ants!!!.
There is no fight or difference of opinion among Ants.
Even among Human beings who are supposed to the best of creations there are reasons for Fight,Hatred,Jealousy,intollerence whereas among Ants there are no room for such behaviour and instead are very peaceful ,orderly and happy.
People have tendency to devide among themselves based on religion and Caste whereas there is no such tendency among Ants as they do not have so many different religion.Although there are so many different varieties of Ants They do not allow to recognize as such to lead to fighting among themselves.
So people should learn from Ants to live peacefully and in total harmony.
The message Ants provide to humanity is that if stand as one in Unity and live for each other no power in the world can harm them and continue to strive in perfection
This Blog is dedicated to Ants for thier Unity and hard work as one Unit.

Now is the time to assess the batting potential of the teams.everyone has their personal choices to assess.
My personal choice is based purely on the batsmen and all rounder..
I opt for batsmen first and ,all rounder and bowlers later.My favorite batsmen of previous seasons were Yuvraj
Singh,Chris Gail,K.L.Rahul,Aaron Finch as bats men and all rounder R.Aswin ( also a favourite bowlr).
This being so and all these players happened to be in Punjab Eleven .R.Aswin is statedvto be the captain of Punjab
So I wish all success for the players mentioned above .The team is, therefore, Punjab Eleven to lift the cup.

There are many kind people among us who get themselves involved in silent servicesservices but prefers to remain unknown.Here is the story of such a noble person.
He is from Nasik.His name is RohitPillai.
He was a Research student who took masters degree in Engineering from IIT,Mumbai.Usually such degree holders try to get highly paid jobs in India or fly abroad seeking higher salaries jobs
But Rohit Pillai did not get engaged in any such job and instead concentrated on the Women froom Bangalore who spend their life ln cooking by inhaling enormous amount of smoke every day.He was pained to note that every time they inhaled smoke they coughed helplessly.
This reminded him of the Slogan " Smoking is injurious to health" which the Government is using for public awareness by spending substantial amount of Money.
RohitvPillaii knew that the smoke from cooking inhaled by by them was as bad as smoking 400 Cigerrettes in one hour.So shri Pillai used his talent in Engineering to make smokeless Stoves for them.Neither their husbands ever visited the kitchen to know the miseries of their women nor the Women knew it was a matter that deserved complaints to their husbands. Let this be an example for young talented scientists and technical degree holders to simultaneously serve society as a measure of Social service.

Roger Federer is the Greatest Lawn Tennis player of the time .
The Rotter Dam open venue was the stage set for him to achieve the greatest honour of the time after beating Robin Hase.
He went one step ahead to enter the final and finally had beaten Demitrov for the 97th title.A tremdoos achievement for a 36 year
old veteran.Now he has only Jimmi conours of USA in terms of number of tiled in a carrier.that is Conor had 109
But what really conquered ny heart was the Australian Open title .When he was holding the winner's cup in his hand he could not control his emotions and wept constantly for a few minutes.
Roger Federer has the reputation of being Cool in the court.
Until Australian Open 2017 Rafel Nadal was the world number One & the biggest challenge for Federer. At Melbourne Park,however,the
the great friend outside court in spite of a epic fight of 5 setters, Nadal had to Surrender to Federer after fluctuating fortunes
of the tuff fight in a humble manner.
Thereafter there had been no serious rivals for Federer as Andy Murray and Djockovick were on a declining trend and Rafel Nadal had
to withdraw from Rotterdam due to injury to his leg which rendered him unable run from corner to corner in the court fast for which
he had a reputation of his own.The victory in Quarter final to enter Semi final itself and beating Hase enabled him to regain the
coveted number one rank once again at the age of 36 a record he erased which belonged to the aged Andre Agassi of Les Vegas.
The win at the Final of the Rotterdam of 2018 earned him the 97th Grand slam.Now again Ony Jimmi Connors of USA is ahead of him
With 109 gran slam titles.Now Federer says his immediate aim is to complete 100 Grandslams which is within his reach in the near
future.The style of the game a monopoly of Federer helps him to make his opponents shy in the court.The coolness he is maintaing
again a special asset for him not to show over enthusiasm is yet another factor and his extraordinary patience adds to it.
Now Federer is the King of Grand slams.He is so humble in nature that he would not underestimate his close friend Rafel Nadal.
Now it would be a great pleasure for Lawn Tennis Fans to welcome Federer back to court as Number one and carry on his classical
Dwells to earn more and more titles ,the immediate aim being 100 titles.If only Rafel Nadal joiMe him to make every match more
Long live Federer.Every good wishes for him.
Recently an Ordnance has been issued by Government by declaring Bamboo is not a tree.
Bamboo is seen growing in villages of Kerala also besides Forests.Generally Bamboo is growing in a group as a bush of msnty Bamboo trees.
It is said Bamboo is a strong tree used for multipurpose.
It is mainly used by the Garbathi Industries.Bamboo is being imported and is growing as a profitable business in India.
The picture depicted is a particular type of Bamboo grown in villages of Kerala.
Bamboo grows in villages through the pollination process.
The Flute of Sreekrishna seen in pictures are made of young Bamboo.Similarly it can be used for many toys and for making strong mats.
it is said that while in World war ,Hiroshima was bombed the only tree survived was Bamboo.
So this is a very strong evidence for the strength of Bamboo.
So derecogizing it as a tree and reçognizing as a plant or Grass seems not well justified.
The need for reconsideration of the Bammoo as tree vis a vis considering it as a agricultural product would appear to be not fully justified.
Here is a picture of Bamboo being grown itself in a village of Kerala is depicted below:
In view of its Multipurpose use as a tree derecogizing it as tree and obviously considering it as a plant or Grass would appear to be needing reconsideration as hitherto being a profitable business might lack it's status.
Tholis might also lead to felling Bamboo by poachers and others as it is no longer under control of forest department and can not prevent it's felling.
The agriculture envisaged is likely to take a lot of time
