An interesting fact about heart I read today:
The heart is resilient, literally. When a body is burnt, the heart is the last organ to oxidize. While the rest of the body can catch flame like a polyester sheet on campfire, it takes hours to burn the heart to ash because it's deep inside!
Did you know? According to Hindu mythology, when Arjuna cremated the body of Lord Krishna, his whole body turned into ashes, except his heart which was still burning. Arjuna washed the ashes and burning heart into the river.
