The first nation to wish for peace is Japan, by reason of the tragedy happened 64 years ago. Moreover, the tragedy was atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. These are the rare and shocking pictures of the ruins. Little boy and Fat-Man were the very hot topic in the year 1945. Because ‘Little boy and Fat-Man’ are the atomic bombs which were dropped by the American army on the city of Hiroshima and Nagasaki which slaughtered more than 2,50,000 people in August 1945 during the period of World War-II. When the bombs were dropped, black smoke rose from the ground up to the sky reaching a height of several thousand meters, and covered the whole city. People experienced the hell on that day.
The people who died do not know why they were killed. American armies snatched the lives of innocent people and guiltless children. The only craving of the people in this world is “NO MORE WARS”.

Everyone in this world likes to live as a Real-life hero. However, only few lead their life in a heroic path. Furthermore, one of the best heroes among them is Adolf Hitler. He may be a villain unless and until we see Hitler as a patriotic person. Most of us know about Hitler’s history but no one knows in the mystery of Hitler’s death. When the World War-II was firing like a hell in 1945, Hitler has ended his life. Hitler was totally distress by the betrayal of his friends and supporters. Soviets were fighting hardly and they were a mile away from Fuhrerbunker (Hitler’s living place). The last news to Hitler from outside world was the execution of his friend Mussolini.
On the noon of April 30 at 2 p.m. Hitler had his last meal which was a vegetarian lunch. Then Hitler and his wife Eva Braun went to their private quarters. Both were a newly married couple but lived together as a husband and wife in the bunker for less than 40 hours. After sometime a gunshot was heard. At 3:30 p.m., Bormann and Goebbels entered and found the body of Hitler sprawled on the sofa, dripping with blood from a gunshot. Eva Braun also had died from swallowing poison. However, his death is still a mystery, whether it is murder or suicide. A hero’s life thus ended in tragedy.

If there is a god for music then undoubtedly it is none other than A.R.Rahman (Musical God). A.R.Rahman holds the credit for totally overhauling the style in which music was being made in India. Though with a career spanning just over a decade, Rahman has already sold over one hundred million records world-wide and more than two hundred million cassettes. This makes him one of the world's top 10 all-time top selling recording artists. This rare picture was taken when he was four years old. His father, R K Shekhar, who were a composer, arranger and conductor for Malayalam films died when Rahman was just 9 years-old and his family rented out musical equipment as a source of income. Later there was a turning point when Dileep Kumar decided to re christen himself as A R Rahman. This incident happened when Rahman's sister was very ill once. A Muslim friend suggested if he prayed in a particular mosque, his sister would recover and so did happen. This caused the entire family to convert to Islam.
After that he worked hard to bring up his family. In the year 1991 he began his own studio and started making music for advertisements, television channels and so on. The first break in his life was the film Roja in the year 1992 directed by Mani Rathnam. Roja debut made AR Rahman bag the Rajat Kamal award for a best music director at the National Film Awards. This was a historic moment as for the first time ever in Indian film industry; this award was being handed to a first-time film composer. Thus the film Roja brought his career life to the crown.

Andaman is one of the beautiful islands in the world. However, when we think of Andaman, first thing to hit our mind is ‘Cellular Jail’ in Andaman. The name, cellular jail, was derived due to this solitary formation of the cells that prevented any prisoner from communicating with any other. The jail was surrounded by sea water and A-Grade security was provided so that no one can escape from jail. Most of the prisoners were freedom fighters. The prisoners were treated roughly. The food that was given to them was not fitted for human consumption. Prisoners were not allowed to meet with each other.
After the death of 3 prisoners due to Hunger-Strike in the year 1933, some of the facilities were provided like light in the cells, prisoners were allowed to meet each other etc. Finally, on August 15, 1947, when India became independent the penal settlement was closed down. On Public demand the central tower of the Cellular Jail has been declared a protected monument, with plaques put up to commemorate the famous occupants of these dreadful cells. Even so, Cellular Jail is one of the murkiest chapters in the history of the colonial rule in India. The people who fought to claim their own country’s independence were called as terrorists by British on those days. Before 1947 the Cellular Jail was a place for Jailbirds, but now it is a place for vacationers.
*First rare picture was taken during the construction of Jail
**Second rare picture was taken in the year 1917

Rajiv Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi are known to be the supreme leaders of India. However, they are not only the best leaders but also best couples. My next blog describes the love of Rajiv Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi. Their love knew no bonds. It was not a love at first sight story, it was all about a relationship that stood against all the frontiers, religion and even crossed several country boundaries to pay their humble homage for the four letter word, 'Love'. It is not a legendary love story but the tough and the surviving one. In 1965, just a year after arriving in England, Sonia met a young Indian student named Rajiv Gandhi, who was studying mechanical engineering at Cambridge University. Their love life did not start at a very glance. Love bloomed everyday to its perfection until they held their hands together to lead a respectable married life. Sonia’s family opposed the match, and did not encourage the relationship. However, Sonia stood firm to her decision and paved her way with her love to India, to be his wife. The courtship, however, lasted three years, perhaps because Rajiv was from one of the most famous families in India, if not the world. Sonia's parents were reluctant to have her become involved in such a different culture, and Sonia herself was nervous about meeting Rajiv's famous mother, Indira Gandhi (1917–1984), who was considered to be the "first lady" of India.
Sonia and Indira Gandhi became fast friends. In 28th Feb 1968, Sonia and Rajiv were married in a simple non-denominational ceremony in the garden of 1, Safdarjang Road. Thus the cute lovers turn out to be the cute couple. The gifts of their love are Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi.
Aliens are one of the ‘Unexplained Things' in this world. People believe that the Alien visits our planet in Spherical-shaped spaceship. Is it true? Does the pictures shown above are true? Let us go through it in detail.
Frederick Valentich was an Australian pilot who disappeared out of the sky back in 1978 at the age of 22 while flying from Melbourne’s Moorabbin Airport to King Island, off the coast of Victoria.
Before his disappearance, Valentich reported “a strange aircraft” during the run. He reported an orbiting object that hovered over him for a brief period during the run at a speed that he couldn’t measure. Then a strange sound interrupted the broadcast and that was the last anyone had heard from him.
This article contains a brief transcript of Valentich’s final transmission as well as other similar case studies of similar UFO behavior that corroborate Valentich’s story.
The Alien’s talks are not just started in 18th or 19th century. It was started before 10000B.C.
This cave painting is 10,000 BC old and is from Val Camonica, Italy. It appears to depict two beings in protective suits holding strange implements.
The more shocking one is the cave painting from Tanzania. This painting is estimated to be up to 29,000 years old.
Even though there are many pictures and evidence to explain about Aliens, they are not ascertained yet. Hence we say Aliens are the Unexplained Thing.
