Indonesian depiction of Prithvi in ancient regal attire as Ibu Pertiwi at the Indonesian National Monument
Prithvi (Sanskrit: prthvī, also prthivī) “the Vast One” is the Sanskrit name for the earth as well as the name of a Devi in Hinduism and Buddhism.
As Prthvī Mātā “Mother Earth” she contrasts with Dyaus Pita “father sky”. In the Rigveda, Heaven and Earth are primarily addressed in the dual as Dyavaprthivi.
She is a national personification in Indonesia, where she is known as Ibu Pertiwi (Mother Earth).

Calendar day; January 29, 2016

Leave a comment

 Friday, the 29th of January, 2016 is the 29th day in 2016 and in the 4th calendar week.
General Events:
International Puzzle Day
January 29, 2016 in the World
International Puzzle Day is celebrated on January 29, 2016. It was created in 1995 by game companies in the United States. On International Puzzle Day, puzzles of all size, shape and form will be honored. You can celebrate that day by solving one or more puzzles. A puzzle is a problem or enigma that tests the ingenuity of the solver. In a basic puzzle, one is intended to put together pieces in a logical way in order to come up with the desired solution.
The first jigsaw puzzle was created around 1760, when John Spilsbury, a British engraver and mapmaker, mounted a map on a sheet of wood that he then sawed around each individual country. Spilsbury used the product to aid in teaching geography. After catching on with the wider public, this remained the primary use of jigsaw puzzles until about 1820. By the early 20th century, magazines and newspapers found that they could increase their daily subscriptions by publishing puzzle contests. Puzzles may also include letters, numbers, shapes, and riddles.
Solutions to puzzles may require recognizing patterns and creating a particular order. People with a high inductive reasoning aptitude may be better at solving these puzzles than others. Puzzles based on the process of inquiry and discovery to complete may be solved faster by those with good deduction skills.

Curmudgeons Day 2016
January 29, 2016 in the World
Curmudgeons Day is held on January 29 in honor of legendary comedian W. C. Fields. If you don’t know, a Curmudgeon is a bad-tempered or difficult person.
W. C. Fields, a few quotes:
– Start every day off with a smile and get it over with.
– Never try to impress a woman, because if you do she’ll expect you to keep up the standard for the rest of your life.
– Anyone who hates children and animals can’t be all bad.
– If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again. Then quit. There’s no point in being a damn fool about it.
– Women are like elephants. I like to look at ’em, but I wouldn’t want to own one.
Celebrate Curmudgeons Day by being a curmudgeon or watching a few good curmudgeons – Oscar the Grouch, Grumpy the Dwarf, John and Max from Grumpy Old Men.

National Seeing Eye Dog Day
January 29, 2016 in the USA
January 29th is National Seeing Eye Dog Day. Seeing eye dogs are service dogs specially trained to be the eyes for their visually impaired owners. Typically Labrador Retrievers, Golden Retrievers and German Shepherds are chosen as seeing eye dogs, since these breeds are capable of complex training, and staying calm and focused when necessary.
If you’ve ever watched a seeing eye dog being trained or guiding a blind person, you’ve probably been amazed at the intricacy of what they do and the amount of trust their owners place in them. That’s because seeing eye dogs are incredibly trustworthy. When in harness their singular purpose is to keep their owners safe and steer them on the right path. (Sometimes, when out of harness, a whole other, playful personality emerges, which makes their training all the more impressive!)

National Fun At Work Day
January 29, 2016 in the USA
On Fun at Work Day on January 29. 2016 fun and work go along pretty well. Today is all about having fun at work and enjoying yourself. Let your imagination run wild and come up with some good ideas to have fun at work. For example you could dress up in silly clothes, crank up the music or behave a little bit mischievously today. The most important, don’t take things too seriously today. This will not only help you to have a better time at work, but also your boss. Fun at work leads to lower levels of absenteeism, greater job satisfaction, and increased productivity.
This day must not be mixed up with International Fun at Work Day in April.
