Long before the human being learnt the art of reading and writing, all the knowledge used to passed on from person to person and from generation to generation by word of mouth.

That is how religious books like The Bible, the Bhagavad Gita and so on were preserved from generation to generation. After the invention of paper and printing press, the trend of printing such stories came into existence.

The 15 Most Expensive Hotel Suites In The World

by: Esteban

When you’re taking a trip, whether for business or for pleasure, you want to be comfortable. And for most of us, being “comfortable” away from home simply means staying in a clean hotel room that has cable, a mini fridge, and a clean shower. However, as the rich people of the world demonstrate time and time again, “comfort” is a relative term. So when these people travel, the Holiday Inn just won’t do. Instead, they stay in ridiculously luxurious hotel suites that are nicer than any house you have ever visited, let alone actually lived in. And these suites cost a hell of a lot of money.
How much money? You’ll have to read on to find out. So let’s get clicking, shall we?

Women give top priority to grooming themselves and ensuring they are perfectly well-kept with scores and scores of help from all over the place.

We know you might be shy of openly admitting to spending time primping yourselves but this can be our little secret. Here’s some makeover tips for you:

Extreme Cuisine

The 5 dishes even Japanese are freaked out to eat - decades-old pickled stinkfish or maggots on a bed of rice? Be our guest ...
By Matt Alt

Inago -- that's the colloquial Japanese for "locusts." It's also your dinner, by the way.
As the world and his dog know, the Japanese are famously open-minded eaters, and their cuisine is full of tastes and textures alien to the foreign tongue. But plenty of foods that strike terror into expat hearts are actually pretty damn good when you get right down to it. Seaweed, konyaku, oden, natto ... I've braved them all, and my life is the better for it. In fact, sometimes I even find myself craving them when I'm away. But there are certain dishes that can cause even a native gourmet to lose their lunch. Think: Reptiles, amphibians and insects (oh my!).
So, allow me to present a rundown of the top five freaky Japanese dishes I’ve encountered on my travels. For the faint of heart, I've ranked them in ascending order of difficulty to digest ... or at least to get down.

World's Most-Visited Tourist Attractions

Embrace the wisdom of crowds by adding the world’s most-visited tourist attractions to your bucket list.
By Kate Appleton, Rich Beattie, Adrien Glover, Lyndsey Matthews, Joshua Pramis, Ann Shields
From October 2011

Ever heard of Everland or Lotte World? Most Americans have never planned a trip to these South Korean theme parks, yet they rank among the world’s 50 most-visited tourist attractions - beating out the Great Pyramids (4 million), the Taj Mahal (3 million), and Stonehenge (1 million). And there are more surprises. Where we choose to spend our vacation time says a lot about what we value, and despite - or perhaps because of - the lingering global economic crisis, we are traveling more than ever. International tourist arrivals were up 6.6 percent in 2010, according to the World Tourism Organization. China ousted Spain as the third most-visited country with 55.7 million foreign arrivals, while France and the U.S. held tight to their first and second place rankings.
Like it or not, theme parks are just as appealing in these countries as they are in South Korea. Disneyland Paris drew the same number of visitors (10.5 million) as Sacré-Coeur, and two of the world’s 10 most-visited tourist attractions are Disney parks. America also dominates our list. Some credit goes to the weak U.S. dollar, which drew 8.7 percent more foreign tourists in 2010 than the previous year - and likely persuaded many Americans to explore within our vast borders. China and India are even bigger than the U.S., but their lack of dependable visitor statistics and limited domestic tourism markets help account for their few attractions on our list. Expect to see more of them over time; already attendance at Beijing’s Forbidden City has surged from 7 million visitors in 2007 to 12.83 million visitors in 2010. So what is the most-visited tourist attraction in the world? And can 39.2 million people be wrong? Read on to see the results - and an explanation of our methods for calculating it all.

Tokyo's Top 10 Mythical Beasts

By Matt Alt 

Everyone knows Tokyo's home to some pretty strange inhabitants. No, we aren't talking about the ones you wake up next to after a long night in Kabukicho or Roppongi. Even weirder than that. And much, much older. Creatures from myth, legend, fairy tales, arcane religious texts. They're there, lurking quietly in the shadows - and sometimes right out in the open.
Don't believe us? We don't blame you. That's why we prepared a little roadmap. The kind of thing you won't find in any guidebook. And the best part is, the stops are all 100 percent real. Hang on, it's going to be a strange trip ...

Wells In India Made Out Of Endless Steps

The endless steps on the walls seen in these pictures are big water reservoirs that go by many names like Baoli, Baori, Baudi, and so on, but are most known as India’s stepwells. It looks like the steps are made for other purposes than practical reasons, but that is not the case. The steps give rather efficient use of the water as they access the stored water, but they also work as a great and easy maintenance of the well.
