GENERAL KNOWLEDGE EXAM

DEAD HEAT:
A race to run again between two horses that have 'tied.' A heat is that part of a race run without stopping. Two or more heats make a race.  A dead heat is a heat which goes for nothing; it is dead as if it had never taken place.  At the present day, when two horses reach the winning post simultaneously they are said to dead-heat for the first place and are bracketed winners.

POSTERS:  Before the Great Fire of London, the space for foot passengers in London was protected by rails and posts.  These rails and posts served for hanging and exhibiting theatrical placards and general announcements.  So, gradually in course of time
these announcements and placards came to be termed as posters or posting-bills.

INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES

"You are the Children of God, the sharers of immortal bliss, holy and perfect beings.  Ye divinities on earth - sinners? It is a sin to call a man so; it is a standing libel on human nature.  Come up, O lions, and shake off the delusion that you are sheep; you are souls immoral, spirits free, blessed and eternal; ye are not matter, ye are not bodies; matter is your servant, not you are the servant of matter."
                                 -Swami Vivekananda.
