If you know from meter standby loss exactly, you can multiply by 24 for getting daily loss. Again by 365 for yearly.

If having 5W standby loss:
5*24 = 120Wh daily
5*24*365 = 43.800 Wh = 43,8kWh yearly at this example

"Indo-Persian texts – works written in Persian within premodern India – are what one scholar has dubbed β€˜homeless texts,’ falling between theΒ cracks of Indian and Iranian nationalisms. In Iran, few people know or care about Persian literature produced elsewhere. In India, the focus often remains on premodern Sanskrit texts while Persian traditions are ignored."

Heres a family story. In '47, my grandfather's brother was travelling by train when some goons entered the compartment. The goon pointed at my grand uncles luggage and thundered who it belonged to. My granduncle said it was his. No, said the goon brandishing a knife - this is mine. The goon picked up the trunk and got off. My granduncle could only watch helplessly. But he yelled out of the window 'Hai to humara, tum liye ja rahey ho'.

"After dinner, Gotabaya led us outside. Across his lawn, by the garden’s high security wall, was a huge, illuminated outdoor aquarium. Inside, several large, unmistakable shapes moved relentlessly back and forth.

β€œAre those sharks?” I asked him.

β€œYes,” he said. β€œDo you want to see them?”

Don't just teach your students to read.
β€’ Teach them to question what they read, what they study.
β€’ Teach them to doubt.
β€’ Teach them to think.
β€’ Teach them to make mistakes and learn from them.
β€’ Teach them how to understand something.
β€’ Teach them how to teach others.
