Bakra Eid

Bakra Eid is a few days away and by now most of you would have bought your sacrificial animals or are going to very soon. Learn these handy tips on what to look out for when you go with your dad to buy the animals and how to take care of them.

It is very important for you to feed your animals regularly. Do not let them stay hungry, but do not overfeed them either. They should have access to water at all times. Cows, goats and sheep eat a range of grass leaves and hay. Make sure the food is kept off the ground and in big bowls as food on the ground can cause diseases. Be careful when feeding your goats and avoid foods that will harm them. Goats must avoid ornamental plants (artificial plants) or those used for decorative purposes. These can cause severe problems including vomiting and diarrhea if the goat has consumed enough and the condition hasn’t been treated by a vet.

Shelter

Look out:

Here’s a list of signs you should look out for when you head out to the bakra mandi so you can buy a healthy animal: Eyes: Should be bright, clear and not runny or bloodshot. Nose: Breathing should be regular. Beware of discharge, coughing, wheezing or irregular breathing. Coat: Glossy and clean. Look out for parasites or dull and dry hair. Weight: Beware of thin cattle. Attitude: Curious and alert. Beware of cattle that stand apart from the herd, that seem disinterested or that show signs of a bad temper. Mobility: Walking should be free of limps. Beware of slow or uneven walk or hunched positions when sitting; the animal should be able to rise from seated position with ease.

To keep your animals safe, you need to provide them with shelter. Keep all animals in a clean place where they have permanent access to water. Either build a fence for your animals so they stay confined in that area or tie them to a tree or pole in your house, allowing them to move and eat. Make sure you tie the animals at

a certain distance from each other so they do not fight and hurt each other. If it is hot, make arrangements for a fan, and if it’s cold, keep them in a covered area with hay so they stay warm. The shelter should also have a light bulb so the animals don’t feel scared at night.

Hi light

Signs of sickness Check your animals regularly for signs of illness or injury. Here are some of the signs you should look for: • Take the animal’s temperature. • Check its gums for colour. • Listen for irregular heart rate. • Note whether the animals has injuries. • Crusty eyes (yellowish, sticky crusty substance that forms on eyes). • Breathing problems or coughing. • Diarrhea. If any of these symptoms exist take care of your animal immediately.

Where to buy? Karachi: The main cattle market (Bakra Mandi) is located in Sohrab Goth. Various other smaller markets can be found in various areas including Saddar, Landi Kutal, Café Piyala, Lalu Khait, Malir, Banaras, Nazimabad and other areas. These markets are set up at amenity plots, parks and private land. The food for cattle and animal jewellery is found in all areas, even on street corners and markets across the city. Islamabad: Main cattle markets are located in I/11 and Turnol. Food for the animals is available in all sectors’ commercial areas. Lahore: Main cattle market is located in Bund Road but smaller markets can be found across the city.

Caution Now that you know how to take care of your animals we want to ask you to take care of your city’s roads as well. On Bakra Eid, after sacrificing animals, a lot of people throw the animal waste on the road. This can lead to airborne diseases and infections. A lot of flies also gather and the roads become dirty. Please make sure that you dispose the waste properly and call Karachi Metropolitan Corporation (KMC) or the authorities if you see any waste in your area. Also, clean your house and footpath with water and do not leave waste on the road. Be a good and responsible citizen. SOURCE: WIKIHOW.COM

Get your weekly dose of the unusual and funny news from across the globe!

What did you pack? Most people take a change of clothes and a toothbrush when they go round the world. But not Susan Weese, who has packed a life-size artificial (not real) skeleton for her travels. Weese has visited cities such as New York, Chicago, Rome and Paris. And each time she took her faithful companion, Samantha. The 57-year-old came up with the idea on Halloween last year after driving with another skeleton in her passenger seat. Motorists beeped at her after spotting it and she decided to go on her year-long project the next day. Weese has had to face a lot of trouble as she gets stopped by security and airports to make sure the skeleton is in fact artificial and made for Halloween decoration. “The only day I could take pictures when we were in New York was a cold, rainy and windy one. Carrying her across Brooklyn Bridge was no easy task.” While most people would just place the skeleton in the corner of a Halloween room, Weese has been travelling across the globe with it.

World War I A military enthusiast has parked a World War One tank outside his home in Cottenham, Cambridge, ahead of the one hundredth anniversary of the start of the Great War. Anthony Cooke left the six-and-a-half tonne vehicle in his driveway to the surprise of his neighbours, although he said they appreciated the piece. “People do get a shock when they first see the tank in the middle of a residential estate,” the 57-yearold said. “But I’m very lucky as my neighbours love it and one little boy even says good night to it each evening. It takes up my entire drive and I now have to park my car down the road, but it’s worth it as it will look great when it is finished.” Cooke spent seven months finishing the outside of the 13ft-wide Mark IV tank, which cost him an estimated £40,000 (Rs677,000) to purchase and complete. The vehicle is one of only two that are still running in Europe. The military fan will have to spend even more cash as he now concentrates on completing the interior. METRO.CO.UK

Where’s my soup? Britons have had a history of worrying about rats sneaking into their houses for leftover food. But a couple was taken by surprise when a bear tried to enter their house through the kitchen, attracted by the smell of soup. The couple who was staying in a house in the Russian town of Ust-Ilimsk, had just eaten a traditional Siberian beetroot and meat soup before leaving it on their veranda to cool down. Having fallen asleep in a small outbuilding because renovations were being completed on the main house. They woke up to loud banging and were shocked to see the bear trying to drink the soup they had left on the veranda. Terrified the couple called the police and the bear made its way back into the woods. The bear made a fair bit of mess, having spilled the soup and smashed a window trying to look for more soup.

Horse of the year He may not have started school, but talented horse rider, Harry EdwardsBrady, will be making his debut at a prestigious event this week. The talented three-year-old will take centre stage at the ‘Horse of the Year Show’. He began riding this year and has won four titles, including a score of 48 out of 50 in the Royal Norfolk Show. Harry qualified for the Birmingham event with two four-year-old ponies, Divine and Gryngallt. His mother, Emma said: “Harry’s really excited. Although he’s only three, I think it’s sunk in that it’s quite an important show.” Despite his natural ability, Harry said his favourite things are, “rides on tractors, finger painting and ice cream.” We hope Harry will win the race.

Word Origins Crayon Have you ever wondered why the colourful sticks or pencils of chalk and wax that you use for drawing are called crayons? And why is the most popular company that makes crayons called Crayola? Well, the word ‘Crayola’ was originally thought up by Alice Binney. Binney, a one-time school teacher, combined the French word ‘craie’, meaning ‘chalk’, with ‘ola’, shortened from the French word ‘oléagineux’, meaning ‘oily’. Oléagineux derives from the Latin ‘oleāginus’, which is the adjective form of ‘olea’, meaning more or less olive tree. The French ‘craie’ comes from the Latin ‘creta’, which also means ‘chalk’, and in addition, can mean ‘clay’. Craie is also where ‘crayon’ gets its leading cray, though the word crayon existed long before Crayola crayons were invented. It first appeared around the 16th century in the French language and meant ‘chalk pencil’ and later just shortened to pencil, as it still means today. Hence, given the origin of the words, ‘Crayola crayon’ more or less just means ‘oily chalk pencil’.
