Lets play on words !!

We introduce you a form of word play- Anagrams !!

An anagram is a type of word play, the result of rearranging the letters of a word or phrase to produce a new word or phrase, using all the original letters exactly once; e.g.,

orchestra = carthorse, A decimal point = I’m a dot in place (courtesy Wikipedia).

To begin with we thought of playing on the names of our friends- TT-2010 batch. Lets see how good you are in guessing the names.

Just concentrate on rearranging the letters and ignore the punctuations/case-sensitivity (if present) in the given phrases.

Answers will be revealed in a week’s time. The replies and comments will all be published together.

Put on your thinking caps !!

Every body knows that China is the largest nation in terms of population.  But DID U KNOW about ‘The Republic of Molossia’,One of the oldest micronations, located in Dayton, Nevada. It is inhabited by only four citizens, one of whom, Kevin Baugh is the president. It was founded in May 1977 by Baugh when he was aged fourteen and was formerly known as the republic of Vuldnstein. It has its own space program, has a railway and issues currency (valora) as well. In 2000, Molassia staged the first ever Micronation Olympic games in tune with the Sydney Olympics.

Jupiter is the fifth planet from the Sun and is the largest planet in the solar system. If Jupiter were hollow, more than one thousand Earths could fit inside. It also contains two and a half times the mass of all the other planets combined and weighs three hundred times more than Earth It has a mass of 1.9 x 1027 kg and is 142,800 kilometers (88,736 miles) across the equator.but DID U KNOW that Jupiter technically has no surface as it is entirely made out of gas.

 

QUICK FACTS:

  •   The gravitational pull of the jupiter is so high that anything and everything that passes the planets gets pulled towards it.
  •  Jupiter has 63 moons and one of them is volcanically active and it is the only moon in the entire solar system to be in such a state.
