About the Event

Fireflies are sometimes called lightning bugs. Many a child have spent summer evening chasing them. And may be you ‘ve wondered how and why are these insect able to light up.


The answer is that Fireflies contain an organic compound in their abdomens called luciferrin. As air rushes in to the abdomen, it react with the luciferrin. A chemical reaction gives off the familiar glow of a firefly. This light is sometimes called “cold – light” because it generates so little heat. The fireflies can regulate the air flow in to the abdomen to create the pulsating pattern.


Some experts think the firefly’s flashy style may warn predatorsof the insect’s bitter tastes. On the other hand, some frogs don’t seem to mind. They eat so many fireflies that they themselves begin to glow. Males fireflies also light up to signal that desire for mates – and willing females attract the mates with flashes of their own.


But not all the flashing of fireflies is motivated by romance. While each fireflies species has it own pattern of flashing, some females imitate the pattern of other species. Male land next to them – only to be eaten alive. So the next time you see a firefly keep in mindthats it flickering isn’t. Just a unique & sometimes deadly languages of love.


Kothaligad is more commonly known as the fort of Peth because the village of Peth is situated at its base. The pinnacle of the Peth can be seen from the village. It looks like a filed surface. On reaching the top of the fort, we see caves carved in huge rocks. The first one is the cave of Goddess, besides which is awater cistern and the last one is the specious Bhairoba cave.A flat floorand well-sculpted pillars are specialty of the cave. Along the Bhairoba cave, steps are carved leading the pinnacle.


Four–Five potholes and some cannon balls are scattered in the fort. Kalwawantinicha Mahal, Nagfani, Siddhagad, Malanggad, Chanderi, Prabalgad, Manikgad, and Matheran all these surrounding historical places are visible from top of the fort Peth.
