What should I gift on friendship day?

Friendship day is celebrated on 1st Sunday of August every year. Though it started in US but now it is celebrated in many countries.

According to C.W Lewis - "Friendship is unnecessary, like philosophy, like art... It has no survival value; rather is one of those things that give value to survival. ", Such is the beauty of friendship. But when friendship day is around the corner, the question is - What should I gift to my friend?

Well, it depends upon how well you know him/her but here are few suggestions that you might found worth giving a thought.

The most popular gift which is obvious is going for a friendship band, but why not try some unusual yet classy bands this time - if you are willing to spend some bucks then think of gifting a silver band to your friend this time. It will last long and will also be worth giving a gift.

What could be a better way to convey your feelings than flowers, gift a bunch of beautiful flowers, the favorite ones of your friend and if you don't know about his/her choices, yellow roses are the safe pick.

The most common gift on almost every occasion is chocolates,  go for some hampers and specially designed chocolates  for special occasions. May be this could an additional or secondary gift with your main gift.

You can think of some specially designed gifts like coffee mugs with your friends picture on it, or a key ring with you and your friends picture embedded in it.

If your friend love reading books, then why not gift your friend  one great book, or the book which he/she might be thinking to buy from a long time.

For guys you can gift -perfumes, mens accessories, pen sets, cuff links, show pieces or personal care.

For girls you can gift - cosmetics, perfumes, ladies bag, show pieces, gift vouchers or nice watch.

So what are you gifting your friend this Friendship day?

Difference between Brown egg and White egg?

Ever wondered what is the difference between brown egg and white egg.

You must have used eggs for different purposes  and must have also seen the different colors of egg- the white egg which is most commonly used egg and the brown colored egg.

What determines the color of the egg is the breed of the chicken. And what is fed to the chicken determines the nutritional value of the egg.

White eggs are layed by white feather chicken and they also have white ear lobes, while brown eggs are layed by red color chickens and they have red ear lobes.

So literally speaking there is no difference between the two eggs, may be in some cases the brown egg is a bit larger than the white egg.

Brown eggs are expensive as compared to the white eggs, just because the feeding cost to the red hen is more as it is bigger in size as compared to the white hen.

Why does onions make us cry?

Ever wondered why does onions make us cry?

So when you cut an onion, its cells are broken up which allows to release Amino acid sulfoxides form sulfenic acids. Sulfuenic acids is a volatile acid which syn-propanethial-S-oxide, which being volatile in nature reaches your eyes, where it meets water to form sulphuric acid. This acid formation in the eyes burns your eyes and release tears to clean them.

So next time when you cry while cutting the onions, you must be knowing the reason - the culprit syn-propanethial-S-oxide.

How can you avoid them?

Keep the onion in refrigerator before cutting it, it will slow down the reaction speed.

A high speed fan, which moves the volatile acid to another direction rather than reaching your eyes.

Lit a candle near, it will absorb the gas formed.
