1)In 1984, educator, writer, and entrepreneur Pleasant T. Rowland was
looking for dolls to give her nieces for Christmas. She found baby
dolls (which emphasize mothering) and teenage or adult dolls (which
emphasize future aspirations of an older age), but no dolls that
realistically represented girls in an nine-to-twelve age range. This
experience was coupled with a visit to Colonial Williamsburg, a place
which Rowland felt personified the accessibility of living history and
which inspired her to create which line of historical character dolls
and books?

2)X is a town located in the Idduki district of Kerala .The name X is
believed to be derived from Malayalam/Tamil words , referring to the
town’s strategic location at the confluence of the Muthirappuzha,
Nallathanni and Kundaly rivers.ID X.

3)Tribals threaten X with their desire for its various parts.X’s flesh
is believed to be medicinal. The squabs are considered a
delicacy.Tribesmen in parts of northeastern India and Borneo use their
feathers for head-dresses,Their flesh is considered unfit for eating
by the Nagas with the belief that they produce sores on their feet.
When dancing with the feathers of X, the avoid eating vegetables as it
is also believed to produce the same sores on the feet. Conservation
programmes have attempted to provide tribes with feathers from captive
X.
X is called “homrai” in Nepal (giving the name of that subspecies) and
“banrao” both meaning “King of the forest”.ID X.

4)On 11 February 1858, Bernadette Soubirous went with her sisters
Toinette and Jeanne Abadie to collect some firewood and bones in order
to be able to buy some bread. When she took off her shoes and
stockings to wade through the water near the Grotto of Massabielle,
she heard the sound of two gusts of wind (coups de vent) but the trees
and bushes nearby did not move. She saw a light in the grotto and a
girl, as small as she was, dressed all in white, apart from the blue
belt fastened around her waist and the golden yellow roses, one on
each foot, the colour of her rosary. Bernadette tried to keep this a
secret, but Toinette told her mother. After parental
cross-examination, she and her sisters received corporal punishment
for their story.the story goes on to say that water from the area
cured people and the place become a place for worship.which place?

5)X has its origins in the folklore of North India about a princess
with incomparable beauty who was so delicate to weigh only as much as
a flower. This folklore took the shape of a drama then known as
sangeets by the name, X Shehzadi (“The Story of Princess X”), soon it
became so popular that the name became that of the genre itself. The
word, X, comprises two words, the first part meaning “nine” and second
part referring to a “silver coin weighing four grams”, and thus
metaphorically implies that the graceful princess weighs only 36 grams
(9 X 4 grams).ID X.
