Message in a bottle

Sending message in a bottle -  does it sound romantic? Unfortunately, there is no romance in it. In fact, there is no common sense to it as it refers to the pollution from plastics that is threatening our seas and oceans today. 

Impact of Circus in the Tourism Industry

Circus has always fascinated people because it is a unique form of 'live' entertainment. It is believed to have had its origins in the Roman Empire where the first ever circus company called Circus Maximus was formed. After the fall of the Roman Empire, there was no defined circus company and there were only small wandering groups that traveled from one place to another to showcase their skills. The circus industry was revived during the 18th century by a Briton named Philip Astley, who is often regarded as the 'Father of Modern Circus.' Since then, circus companies have flourished in different parts of Europe and it spread to other parts of the world such as Asia, Russia and the Americas.

Massage around the world

Massage around the world

Post only in English

Massages were used as a natural remedy for pains and soreness since the hunting and gathering days of human civilization. It is based on the basic instinct of rubbing the part that hurts, similar to the instinct of drinking for thirst. In ancient times, massages were a powerful healer and there were even people who were believed to have the 'spiritual power' to heal pains. Since then, this knowledge was passed down from generation to generation. Depending on the geographical region in which massage was used, the techniques handed down vary differently.
