With all the climate changes that our planet is going through, awesome cloud formations are spotted in the sky.
Here, two types: Asperatus and Mammatus:
Beautiful like a painting, a new type of cloud formation - Asperatus - has been recognized by the meteorologists in 2009. The last one was added in 1951.
These clouds have been spotted during the morning or midday hours following convective thunderstorm activity. They are not considered a precursor to severe weather, rather appear to form following rain or thunderstorm activity.The name "asperatus" is derived from the Latin asperus (rough).
Mammatocumulus - or simply Mammatus - are cloud formations often indicative of strong storms or maybe even a tornadic storm. They tend to form during warm months in several areas of the United States.
The name "mammatus" is derived from the Latin mamma (udder), due to the resemblance between the shape of these clouds and the udder of a cow. (Source: Wikipedia)

The Dalai Lama met with the Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru, to urge India to pressure China into giving Tibet an autonomous government, as relations with China were not proving successful. Nehru did not want to increase tensions between China and India, so he encouraged the Dalai Lama to work on the Seventeen Point Agreement Tibet had with China. Eventually, after the failed uprising in 1959, the Dalai Lama fled Tibet and set up the Government of Tibet in Exile in Dharamshala, India, which is often referred to as "Little Lhasa".

The slow lorises are three species of loris and are classified as the Genus Nycticebus. These slow moving primates range from Borneo and the southern Philippines in Southeast Asia, through Bangladesh, Vietnam, Indonesia, India (North Eastern India, Bengal), southern China (Yunnan area) and Thailand. They are classified as vulnerable or endangered species, and are hunted for their large eyes which are prized for local traditional medicine. The Indonesian name, malu malu, can be translated as "shy one". (Source: Wikipedia)
