    Human beings who get irritated by other people or situations around them only manage to make themselves angry. But oysters produce one of the most valuable gems when they get irritated. Oysters are a kind of shellfish found mostly at the bottom of the sea. There are many kinds of oysters like calms, conchs, mussels, scallops and others. An oyster is shaped like an oval box with a lid. Usually the oyster keeps its lid slightly open. Some kinds of oysters are edible and considered to be a delicacy.
    A fleshy layer of the skin lines the inner side of the oyster and is called the mantle. Sometimes a grain of sand or some other object gets in through the open space and irritates the mantle. The mantle tries to stop this irritation by making layers and layers of shell inside it.
     
    The layers cover the irritating grain of sand or object till it is covered. This process takes several years and it eventually produces one of the most valuable gems - the PEARL.
    Pearls come in many different colours like pink, orange, gold, cream, white or dark grey They also come in varied shapes like round, button-shaped and drop-shaped. Based on shapes, round pearls, which are used for necklaces, are the most valuable. Among colours, the dark grey pearls are the ones that fetch the maximum price.
    So, the next time you find yourself getting irritated by someone or something, ask yourself if getting angry adds to your value!

    The great ship Titanic sailed for New York from South Hampton on April 10th, 1912. It was carrying 1316 passengers and a crew of 891. Even by modern standards, the Titanic was a colossal ship. In speed, in comfort, in beauty, in equipment, it was a masterpiece. At that time, however, it was not only the largest ship that had ever been built, but was regarded as unsinkable, for it had sixteen water-tight compartments. Even if two of these were flooded, it would still be able to float. The tragic sinking of this great liner will always be remembered, for it went down on her maiden voyage with a heavy loss of life.
    Four days after setting out, while the Titanic was sailing across the icy waters of the North Atlantic, a huge iceberg was suddenly spotted. After the alarm had been given, the great ship turned sharply to avoid a direct collision. The Titanic just turned in time, narrowly missing the immense wall of ice which rose over 100 feet out of the water besides it. Suddenly, there was a slight trembling sound from below. The noise had been so faint that no one thought that the ship had been damaged. The captain went down to see what had happened. He realised to his horror that the Titanic was smoking rapidly. Five of her sixteen water-light compartments had already been flooded. The order to abandon the ship was given and hundreds of people plunged into the icy water. As there Were not enough lifeboats for everybody, 1500 lives were lost.
    The Titanic was regarded as unsinkable because:

    A) it was a huge ship.

    The most important kind of flag is the National Flag. Every country has its own flag with its bright colours and outstanding design. A nation's flag symbolises its freedom and its history. Indian National Flag is known as the Tiranga Jhanda, Great Britain's National Flag is known as Union Jack and the National Flag of the United States of America is called the Stars and Stripes.
    Most National Flags use one or more of the seven colours. The colours are red, white, blue, green, yellow, black and orange. These colours are often used in a stripe pattern. Flags also use symbols such as the cross, the star and the half moon shape or the crescent. A country's National Flag is always hoisted on the country's National Day. The National Heroes of a country are honoured by the hoisting of flags. In India, Mahatma Gandhi's birthday is celebrated with the hoisting of the Tiranga Jhanda.
    A National Flag is respected by lowering it slowly from the flagpole at dusk. It is folded before it touches the ground. People salute the flag when it is hoisted. When a flag is flown at Half-Mast, it means that the country is mourning the death of an important citizen. The Supreme Court of India now allows its people to fly the National Flag in their houses all through the year, so long as they respect it by lowering it at the dusk and hoisting it at the dawn. You too can choose to keep the Tiranga Jhanda flying high.
