TREE-HOUSE FRIYAY

TREE-HOUSE FRIYAY

What They Say?


"Everyone must leave something behind when he dies, my grandfather said. A child or a book or a painting or a house or a wall built or a pair of shoes made. Or a garden planted. Something your hand touched some way so your soul has somewhere to go when you die, and when people look at that tree or that flower you planted, you're there.

It doesn't matter what you do, he said, so long as you change something from the way it was before you touched it into something that's like you after you take your hands away. The difference between the man who just cuts lawns and a real gardener is in the touching, he said. The lawn-cutter might just as well not have been there at all; the gardener will be there a lifetime."
— Ray Bradbury (Fahrenheit 451)

Why do movies have a great impact on our lives?


Today is the birth anniversary of the famous American actor Tom Cruise. We love to see him play different roles in different genres of movies. In fact, from our very childhood, movies shape and impact our lives in various ways. That is why we love watching movies so much. Movies may have both good and bad effects but today we will tell you how it makes an impact in our lives…

Read More
1) We associate ourselves with the protagonists

It is one crucial reason why we love watching movies. Because whenever we do, we associate ourselves with the protagonist on the screen. If the protagonist is fighting the bad guys, we imagine ourselves in their place. That is why we feel happy when the protagonist defeats those bad guys.


2) Movies inspire us

As Indians, we don’t watch only Indian movies. And yet we love those foreign locations, people, their lives and their cultures. It is because we find similarity between our lives and the lives depicted on screen. It also inspires us to live a beautiful life in a beautiful place someday, as portrayed in the movie.

3) Movies shape our personality

Through movies we come in contact with a lot of fictional characters. As people, we like some of their traits and try to imitate that in our own lives. This way, movies become responsible in shaping our personality to an extent.


4) Movies normalize stereotypes

As movies depict our surroundings and realities, it also normalizes stereotypes. For instance, the stereotype of a female protagonist in movies is a tall, slim, fair woman. It makes our society look at women and bodies that do not conform to the stereotype, in a negative light.

So you see, movies are way more impactful than we think them to be. Why do you like to watch movies?

Why do aeroplanes dump fuel?

Did you know that sometimes aeroplanes dump fuel mid-air before landing? This is called fuel jettison and at face value appears to be a major breach in environmental safety standards and an utter waste of precious natural resources. However, the reason behind a fuel jettison is not something that you might expect. Keep reading to find out why.

Read More


The primary reason behind a fuel jettison is to get rid of any extra weight that might impede a safe landing of the aircraft. The obvious question that comes to mind is why don’t the ground staff calibrate the fuel requirements before the takeoff itself? Well, they do and fuel jettisoning is not a regular procedure that is employed only under exigent circumstances. One of the reasons might be an emergency landing at an airport that is situated at a distance much shorter than the original destination. Because the fuel requirements are calculated keeping in mind the flight path and destination, the emergency landing would be highly dangerous with the excess weight of the fuel that the aircraft contains. In such situations, the pilot would dump the excess fuel just before landing to ensure that the aircraft remains stable during the same.

The other obvious concern is the fate of the ejected fuel. Well, most of the jettisoned fuel does evaporate before it reaches the ground. The part of it that doesn’t can be a major environmental hazard and can lead to crop damages and water pollution.
