A globe is a3- dimensional scale model of earth or other spheroid celestial body such as a planet, star, or moon. It may also refer to a spherical representation of the celestial sphere, showing the apparent positions of the stars and constellations in the sky. The word “Globe” comes from the Latin word globus, meaning round mass or sphere.

A globe is the only representation of the earth that does not distort the shape or the size of large fearures, flat maps are created using a map projection that inevitably introduces an increasing amount of distortion of the large area that the map shows. A typical scale for a terrestrial globe is roughly 1:40 million.

Vermi Compost Pit
Vermi culture means artificial rearing of worms (Earthworms) and the technology is the scientific process of using them for betterment of human beings.
