The number 6 is:

  • The smallest perfect number (perfect number is a positive integer that is the sum of its proper positive divisors, that is, the sum of the positive divisors excluding the number itself; 6=2+3+1)
  • An automorphic number (a number whose any power ends in the same digits as number itself)
  • Cardinal Directions: north, south, east, west, up, and down
  • The basic structure of organic chemistry, a benzene molecule has a ring of 6 carbon atoms
  • The number of tastes in traditional Indian Medicine called Ayurveda. They are: sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent, and astringent. These tastes are used to suggest a diet based on the symptoms of the body
  • The Six articles of belief of Islam
  • The number of strings on a standard guitar
  • The number of dots in a Braille cell
  • The number of feet below ground level a coffin is traditionally buried; thus, the phrase “six feet under” means that a person (or thing, or concept) is dead

Also, at OnePostDaily, we complete 6 months today. 6 months, 183 posts. And with that, we decide to take a break, look back at the past six months, introspect, have more questions in our minds and come back with a bang in a month’s time.

Till then…Happy Reading!

So what’s this blog about?

Another attempt? Well yes. Attempting to figure out another sustainable model (there are some other attempts going on parallel-ly). Well, we have a lot of questions in mind. we read up stuff, we do some research to find answers to these questions. This is an attempt to publish that little 15-20 minute research.
