The fossil remains found at the site indicate a large variety of aquatic and amphibian life, which was supported by that environment.

Arguably the most important festival in Hinduism. The festival spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness or good over evil, knowledge over ignorance, and hope over despair.

Its celebration includes millions of lights shining on housetops, outside doors and windows, around temples and other buildings in the communities and countries where it is observed. The festival preparations and rituals typically extend over a five-day period, but the main festival night of Diwali coincides with the darkest, new moon night of the Hindu solar month Kartika.
