can we post anything on our blogs??? really can we?
or is it like we have set of rules and regulation to write and publish them…
cant we write about our personal life..? i doonno wat should i write and what i shouldnt…
and this post is just to post something in my blog (OMG can do that??)
because i have moved out n i cant see this blog abandoned…
I was working out in gym today n i remembered that i have lot of shopping to be done . Ive been lazy to shop for summer because of my exams n college work n thought about my last year shopping for my birthday it was with such a gusto and enthusiasm , now here i am so much into work .Then i went back to the date i was born AUGUST 16 1989 how did august get its name august??? i asked myself,wen in Hindu calender its only 10 months (i am a Sanskrit student and i have qiute a bit knowledge about this calender)then somewhere back in my mind i remember the old novel of my dad’s that i had read during my free time – JULIUS CEASER by Shakespeare. it was a very interesting book n i believe it holds good even today,we can relate so many current political situation to to that of in the book. then i got the answer for added 2 months;)
When Julius died, they named a month in his honor: the one we now call July.
When Augustus became emperor, he thought himself to be as important as Julius, so he insisted on having his own month. Once the month of August was created, he saw it only had 30 days. So he insisted that it too should have 31 days, like the month of Julius his grandfather.
So they made August 31 days, then changed the pattern of 30-31 until the end of the formal year (December). January was left unchanged at 31, while poor February, the last month of the year, lost another one to become a 28-day month (except 29 on Leap years). from then on many changes have been made to the julian or gregorian calendar.
Then i wanted to know about the main events that happened in the year i was born the following were few important things that happened during 1989

Today we have all the things so perfect in the name of manners that we are not suppose to commit even a small mistake out in public. Its good that we dont have to work hard n everything is done lead a routine life with no excuses n shame. as the days change human n his thinking n perception changes but its very imporant to respect our values n ethics.
