Bones form the wooden framework of our body. They are primarily made of
calcium and phosphorus along with proteins. The bones are joined with each other at the joints just like the pipes are attached to
each other at the hinges. The surface of the bone forming the joint is lined by a soft cushion called the cartilage so that the bones
do not rub against each other and damage each other. The joints are made stronger by the ligaments that line the joint. Hence, a
sprain (called tearing of a ligament) is seen at a joint and has to be bandaged to maintain stability of the joint. The collection
of bones in the body is called the skeleton. Bones are very important for our body:
