During my research, I came across some fascinating findings from the rise and fall of empires to science and mathematical discoveries and the resistance to foreign invasions.

This series of Hindu and Bhāratiya History summarises these findings so we can all learn…

NOTE: At the time of writing this article, aspect-ratio is only supported on Chromium browsers. To see which browsers the property is currently supported, visit https://caniuse.com/mdn-css_properties_aspect-ratio.

The “padding-top hack”

We’ve all used it or at least know of it, the infamous padding-top hack which has been used for many years in order to get media (namely videos)…
