Learn Something New 
Baton Twirling
Baton twirling is similar to rhythmic gymnastics. The difference is that the athletes use a baton instead of performing with a ribbon or a ball. The baton is about 18 to 32 inches long. Athletes mostly use batons that are as long as their arm (from the shoulder to the tips of their fingers). This sport requires concentration and coordination. Baton-twirling performances are often accompanied by music. To know the basics of baton twirling, log on to www.bit.ly/BatonTwirlingBasic

Music For Your Ears
Know Your Instrument: Duduk
Origin: Armenia
The duduk is an ancient double-reeded wood instrument that dates back to 1200 BC. Originally, duduks were carved out from bones or cane but today, they are made out of the wood of apricot trees. Because of its size and wide opening, it is able to produce a unique soul wrenching, mournful sound. Those who play this instrument are known as dudukahar in Armenian.

Green World 
Meet a New Plant: Polygala Paucifolia
Polygala paucifolia or the fringed polygala is a perennial plant that falls under the Polygalaceae or Milkwort family. The word polygala is derived from two Latin words—'poly', which means 'much' and 'gala', which means 'milk'. It was once believed that when cattle ate this plant, they would produce a lot of milk. The fringed polygala is typically known for its fringed three-petalled flowers, which are purple, blue, pink, white or red in colour. They grow mainly in North America and Canada.

Meet a New Bird: Columbian Cyanopis
The Columbina cyanopis, also commonly called the blue-eyed ground dove, is an endangered bird species that is endemic to the Cerrado, a sprawling wide savannah in Brazil, which is home to 5% of the planet’s animals and plants. 

This bird is known for its striking blue eyes and dark blue spots on its wings.

Meet a new Animal: Pseudoryx Nghetinhensis
Pseudoryx nghetinhensis or the Asian unicorn is regarded as one of the rarest large animals on Earth. They can be found only in the Annamite Mountain range of Laos and Vietnam. Although, the animal resembles an antelope, it is genetically related to cattle. Both the male and female of the species have two parallel long, straight horns that measure up to 50cms, which is twice the size of their head. They have short, silky fur, which is a dark chestnut brown. They have striking white markings above their eyes–like an eyebrow–alongside the nose and jaw line. Their tail is short and striped.
