Drink water from the spring where horses drink. The horse will never drink bad water.
Lay your bed where the cat sleeps.
Eat the fruit that has been touched by a worm.
Boldly pick the mushroom on which the insects sit.
Plant the tree where the mole digs.
Build your house where the snake sits to warm itself.
Dig your fountain where the birds hide from heat.
Go to sleep and wake up at the same time with the birds – you will reap all of the days golden grains.
Eat more green – you will have strong legs and a resistant heart, like the beings of the forest.
Swim often and you will feel on earth like the fish in the water.
Look at the sky as often as possible and your thoughts will become light and clear.
Be quiet a lot, speak little – and silence will come in your heart, and your spirit will be calm and full of peace.”

Instagram launches Reels in India: Here's how you install and use the feature to make TikTok-like videos
Facebook-owned Instagram, it appears, has capitalized a lot from India banning TikTok, the video creating app that owned by China’s Bytedance. With the United States also looking to ban TikTok, Instagram’s Reels may be the solution that content creators are looking for.
Launched earlier this week, Reels made its India debut at 7.30 pm on the night of July 8, 2020. If you do have Instagram on your phone and want to use reels, the app may have in all likelihood updated on your phone, so you can directly use the feature.
Instagram launches Reels in India: Here's how you install and use the feature to make TikTok-like videos
In case you don’t see the update, here’s what you do
- Visit your Goolge Play Store or Apple Store, go to Instagram and tap on the update button
- Once you open Instagram, tap on the Instagram camera. Reels will be right next to Boomerang, Superzoom and Layout
- Click on Reels and check out the vast array of music available on the IG Library. Unlike Instagram music, Reels has a far wider music collection, ranging from Bob Dylan to Lady Gaga
- Much like TikTok, Reels also come with an option to record original voice besides lipsyncing.
- You also have the option of editing the videos before sharing it, giving you the chance of becoming a content creator
Users with a Public Instagram account will be able to share Reels on Explore. This will build a better chance for the Reel to be seen and discovered by the wider Instagram community.
India on June 29 banned 59 apps with Chinese links, including hugely popular TikTok, UC Browser and Cam Scanner, saying they were prejudicial to sovereignty, integrity and security of the country. The ban came in the backdrop of the standoff with Chinese troops in Eastern Ladakh.
Meanwhile, on Monday Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had said that the United States has to take a different path on China as the previous policy of helping them open up their economy with the belief that this would lead to more political freedom has not worked.
"The theory of the case that was more economic opening will lead to more political freedoms, more fundamental rights being provided to the Chinese people, just turned out not to have been true. It just didn't work. I'm not criticizing those who came before; we can now plainly see that it didn't work, and that means the United States has to take a different path," Pompeo told Tony Perkins of Washington Watch in an interview.

The video has gone viral on social media, in which it is seen that Tripura minister Monoj Kanti Deb is putting his hand on the waist of Social Welfare and Social Education Minister Santana Chakma, a young tribal leader. In the video, it is also seen that Santana Chakma is quickly pushing away the BJP minister’s hand. Monoj Kanti Deb holds the Food, Youth Affairs, and Sports portfolios.
After the video went viral, Left Front convener Bijan Dhar told the media that “Monoj Kanti Deb must be sacked and be arrested for touching the woman minister in an extremely indecent manner on the stage from where Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb, and others addressed the public gathering.”
BJP spokesman Nabendu Bhattacharjee, however, said that the Left Front, after raking up non-issues against the BJP government, has now “started character assassination of BJP ministers on false and non-issue matters”. “The woman minister has never made any statement and complaint on the issue raised by the Left parties. Why are the Left parties doing this dirty politics?” he asked.

WhatsApp Working to Add QR Code For Contact Sharing: Everything You Need to Know
WhatsApp is aiming to make it easier for users to quickly share their contact details by introducing a QR code system with a simple scan. According to WABetaInfo, a fan site that tests new WhatsApp features, the Facebook-owned messaging app is working on a new feature called "Add Contact" that allows to quickly add contacts directly in the application.
"It was already possible in the past, but WhatsApp wanted to start to redesign this functionality on IOS and Android, making it easier to use. The feature will replace the current option, so it will be located in the same menu," said WABetaInfo in a blog post late on Tuesday.
For the safety of users, they can also revoke the QR code which then stops it from letting other future users scan the code to get contact information. "The UI is very simple and intuitive. You can choose the country where the user is located (owner of the phone number you want to add), so WhatsApp will automatically insert the country code, then you can insert the phone number," it added.

Kevin Systrom, Co-Founder and CEO, said: “Since Mike and I founded Instagram, it’s been our goal to make it a safe place for self-expression and to foster kindness within the community. This update is just the next step in our mission to deliver on that promise.” Recently, Instagram had introduced a bullying comment filter to proactively detect and hide bullying comments from one’s Feed, Explore and Profile tabs. The developers of the platform are now taking this filter forward to the comments section on live videos in a bid to ensure that Live remains a safe place to authentically connect with friends and interests..
