The Very Special People

Many of you have liked the "Black Theme" and the "Black Background" of my blog, but few of you have also suggested me to change it to any bright colored background. Well, finally I have decided  to share the secret behind my 'Black' ideology. On the other note, I m glad that all my readers take so much interest in my blog that not only they have shared their views about the content on my blog but also they have given their feedbacks about the whole look and feel of the web page, and I must confess, the response and the involvement has taken me by surprise but of course, this is incredible and I'm loving it :). Thank You All- for pouring your ideas and your unique views on my very own small web-space.

Now coming to the revelation of my black ideology, I'm a person who likes black color, though I'm not really sure when my La Affair flourished with it but I have always liked whatever black stuff I owned, such as my black point pen, my black t-shirt, my shoes, my black tie, my black blazer and etc etc. So, it was quite obvious that my web-page would look no different than my black t-shirt :).

The second most important reason why I fell for the black background was the comfort of reading, which I enjoyed with the white text on the black background. Moreover, I have my very own philosophy, which also gives me a strong reason to persist with the black background with white texts. The philosophy is-  "In the dark world I want to spread the light using my bright white colored words". I'm a passionate writer, and I believe when I write my intent is very pure. The color white is a symbol of peace and purity, deriving the same are my words in my texts. The white text color represents my pure intent and the peace I pursue by following my passion for writing.

The third reason is a technically driven outcome, which I realize is very useful. A technical study has shown that an all white web page uses about 74 watts to display, while an all black page uses only 59 watts. Of course, the study results are more effective on CRT monitors than on TFT or LCD monitors, but taking into account that 35% of the market share is still with the normal CRT monitors it is still an important factor to be considered. So, I have done my best by using the black background in an effort to save whatever little power I could save.

So, those were the reasons why I have an all black theme on my blog. Hopefully, it might have made some sense but if you still have some suggestions regarding it then you are most welcome.

One fine day when I was browsing through the internet I found this fact, which actually surprised me. I thought I will start putting such facts on my blog now and as a result I ended up writing this as my first "WHAT THE FACT" or "WTF!!" post. Pardon me if you feel offended with the abbreviation, my only sincere intent behind the "WTF" abbreviation is an effort to use a bad word in a better and correct way.

OK, now coming to my very first  WHAT THE FACT- Do you know if there is any national flag in the world that is Non-rectangular? Well, surprisingly there is one, the national flag of Nepal is the world's only Non-Rectangular national flag. Its crimson red in color with blue borders. Red is also the sign of victory in war and the blue border is color of peace. The flag borrows the basic design from the original Hindu design, which has been in use for more than 2,000 years. The two triangles symbolize the Himalaya Mountains and represent the two major religions, Hinduism and Buddhism.

Hope you liked this fact but of course, this is the just the beginning. This new section of my blog will be labeled under "WTF" and "WHAT THE FACT" keywords, in case you want to search through the blog.
O I feel so excited about this post; its short, crisp and informative. I would want to hear your views about this new "WTF" section, kindly leave your precious comments.
