The climate of Iceland is subarctic (Köppen climate classification: Cfc)[1] near the southern coastal area and tundra inland in the highlands. The island lies in the path of the North Atlantic Current, which makes its climate more temperate than would be expected for its latitude just south of the Arctic Circle. This effect is aided by the Irminger Current, which also helps to moderate the island’s temperature.[2] The weather in Iceland can be notoriously variable.[3]

The aurora borealis is often visible at night time during the winter. The midnight sun can be experienced in summer on the island of Grimsey off the north coast; the remainder of the country, since it lies just south of the polar circle, experiences a twilight period during which the sun sets briefly, but still has around 2 weeks of continuous daylight during the summer

IMPORTANCE OF CHILDREN’S DAY IN INDIA

Fredrick Douglass, an American social reformer, writer and statesman one said- ‘It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men’. A wise quote referring to the role children could play in laying the foundation of a strong nation; a thought also shared by a much respected Indian freedom fighter and the first Prime Minister of India- Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru.

Pt. Nehru strongly believed that the foundation of a strong nation depends on the way its children are cared and nurtured. In order to build a strong nation we must instill good values in our children providing them love and care; guiding them through thick and thin till they become confident and strong enough to contribute in building the nation.

This equation was very well understood and believed by Pt. Nehru; which was displayed in his affection towards children across culture and linguistic barriers. Such was the mutual love and understanding between the children and Nehruji that he was fondly called as ‘Chacha Nehru’ by them.

Children’s Day celebrated on the birth anniversary of Pt. Nehru, is a tribute to him and his belief that ‘the foundation of a strong nation depends on the happy state of its children.’ The noble man is long gone but his thoughts live till today; reminded every year on Children’s Day.

The day reminds us of the importance of well being of our children for the nation as well as society. It also reminds us as responsible citizens of India; not to differentiate between children based on their, caste, religion, ethnicity or financial and social status. It reminds us to protect our children, nourish and nurture them; providing them education, opportunity to grow and good health.

The day also marks celebrations in the schools across India, when various amusement events are organized for the children. Gifts are distributed in schools and children are morally encouraged by speeches and prize distribution ceremonies.

Many social activists and non government organizations organize events in the slum areas of big cities; a noble effort to improve the morale of under privileged children dwelling there and also show them that they are equally cared and loved for.

The Seven Wonders of the World 

The Seven Wonders of the World (or the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World) is a widely-known list of seven great buildings or structures from the classical time period.

Seven Wonders of the Ancient World

This is a list put together in the 2nd century BC by Antipater of Sidon and Philon of Byzantium. This explains why it only lists monuments of the Mediterranean world. There are other slightly different versions: this is the most usual one.

  • Great Pyramid of Giza (Egyptian). The oldest of the wonders, and the only one still standing.
  • Hanging Gardens of Babylon (Babylonian). Built by Queen Semmu-ramat (= Semi-ramis) or King Nebuchadnazzer II. The exact location of this monument is not known. It was in Mesopotamia.
  • Statue of Zeus at Olympia (Greek). A gigantic statue made of marble, with applied gold leaf.
  • Temple of Artemis (Greek). In Ephesus, Asia Minor (modern Turkey), on the Aegean Sea. It was burnt down by Herostratus in 350 BC. When questioned, he is said to have replied: “To make my name immortal”. First known crime committed for fame.
  • Mausoleum of Maussollos (Persian). Tomb of the Anatolian king of that name, built by his widow Artemisia, at Halicarnassus (present Bodrum, Turkey).
  • Colossus of Rhodes (Greek). Built to commemorate the raising of the siege of Rhodes 304–5 BC. At 30 metres, the tallest statue in the ancient world.
  • Lighthouse of Alexandria (Egyptian/Greek). Called the Pharos, this was built for Ptolemy II, about 280 BC. To this day, ‘Pharos’ is the name for lighthouse in several European languages.

Out of those structures only the Great Pyramid still exists in the 21st century. Most of the wonders were built by the Greeks. Earlier versions listed the Walls of Babylon and the Palace of Cyrus the Great.

Seven wonders of the modern world

This version was decided by the American Society of Civil Engineers.

  • Channel Tunnel (England & France)
  • CN Tower (Toronto, Canada)
  • Empire State Building (New York, United States)
  • Golden Gate Bridge (San Francisco, United States)
  • Itaipu Dam (Brazil/Paraguay)
  • North Sea Protection Works (Netherlands)
  • Panama Canal (Panama)

Seven natural wonders of the world

There is no single list of seven natural wonders of the world. One of the many lists was compiled by CNN:

  • Grand Canyon
  • Great Barrier Reef
  • Harbour of Rio de Janeiro
  • Mount Everest
  • Aurora
  • Parícutin volcano
  • Victoria Falls

New7Wonders of the World

New7 Wonders of the World was an idea to choose new wonders of the world from a selection of 200 existing monuments. The mission began in 2001 and ended in 2007 with the announcement of the winners. The popularity poll was led by Canadian-Swiss Bernard Weber and organized by the New7Wonders Foundation in Zürich, Switzerland. Voting took place through the Internet or by telephone.

The program caused different reactions from countries and organisations. Some countries praised their finalist and tried to get more people to vote for it. Others criticized the contest or did not think it was very important.

Among the strongest criticism was from UNESCO, who said in a press release in 2007:

There is no comparison between Mr. Weber’s mediatised campaign and the scientific and educational work resulting from the inscription of sites on UNESCO’s World Heritage List. The list of the 8 New Wonders of the World will be the result of a private undertaking, reflecting only the opinions of those with access to the Internet and not the entire world. This initiative cannot, in any significant and sustainable manner, contribute to the preservation of sites elected by this public.

—UNESCO

Winners:

  • Great Pyramid of Giza (awarded honorary status)
  • Great Wall of China
  • Petra (Jordan)
  • Colosseum (Rome)
  • Chichen Itza (Yucatán)
  • Machu Picchu (Peru)
  • Taj Mahal (India)
  • Christ the Redeemer (statue in Rio de Janeiro)

Other modern lists

From a variety of modern lists of wonders made by man, some items occur several times:

  • The Taj Mahal, India
  • The Colosseum in Rome
  • The Great Wall of China
  • Stonehenge, England. The only prehistoric site on any list.
  • Machu Picchu, Peru
  • The Hagia Sophia. One of many places of worship which might be candidates.
