Hello fellow particles. Let’s talk some history today. Boring stuff for most, I know. But did any of you know that the there are more Egyptian artifacts in the British Museum than all of Egypt put together? Unfair, isn’t it?And this is considering the fact that Egypt has a history which dates back thousands of years before England was even heard of. Many of us have been dazzled by the sight of Egyptian artifacts dating back thousands of years, but where- in a foreign museum which has no connection what-so-ever with Egyptian history. Next time you visit a museum, ask the person in-charge this, “Why aren’t the artifacts in their righteous places?”
Here are a few links you might find interesting:

I am a 17-year old Indian student in Dubai, preparing for my transition to college in the United States this year. I am fanatically in love with cars, Manchester United, mathematics and crime fiction. Most of my articles have been written in odd places like washrooms and school buses, hope you like 'em! Cheers!
