Unfortunately Sri Hanuman could not reach mandir on time with Ganga water, Thus, Sri Rama shot an arrow on a hill stone creating Rama Theertha & completed the Pooja.

Gayatri Mantra – It’s Importance & Power

HINDUTVA, the oldest religion of the world, has given a valuable Hymn to the world in the form of GAYATRI MANTRA. This is the only mantra, where every single word is packed with power. The Gayatri mantra originated from the Rig Veda, the ancient Hindu scripture.
A great sage, Vishwamitra, son of King Gida, was given the Gayatri mantra by the Supreme Being himself, as a reward for his deep penance and meditation. This, ultimately, has become a most precious gift to the entire human being.

Krishna asked a few legendary warriors how long the Mahabharata War would go before it was over before it had started. Bhishma said that it would take him 20 days to end the conflict.

Similar responses came from Dronacharya (25 days), Karna (24 days), and Arjuna (28 days). However, everyone was taken aback when one of the warriors, Barbarika, declared that the battle would only last one minute.
Barbarika is the child of Mauravi and Ghatodkacha (the son of Bheema and Hidimba) (Daughter of Muru, King of Yadav). He was a fervent follower of Lord Shiva and had learned the art of combat from his mother.

Sant Kanopatra and Prabhu Vitthala:

Kanhopatra was a daughter of a rich prostitute and courtesan named Shama or Shyama, who lived in the town of Mangalvedha, near Pandharpur. Shama was uncertain about the identity of Kanhopatra's father, but suspected that
it was the town's head-man Sadashiva Malagujar. Kanhopatra spent her childhood in the palatial house of her mother, served by several maids, but because of her mother's profession, Kanhopatra's social status was demeaningly low.

Kanhopatra was trained in dance
and song from early childhood so that she could join her mother's profession. She became a talented dancer and singer. Her beauty was compared to the apsara. Shama suggested that Kanhopatra should visit the Badshah (Muslim king), who will adore her beauty and gift

#OTD 1927, नागपुर दंगे हुए। यह इंजीनियर दंगों का पहला उदाहरण था जो बाद के वर्षों में भारत में एक आदर्श बन गया। भारत में दंगों के जन्म के टेम्पलेट और इंजीनियर दंगों की खूनी विरासत को फिर से देखने का समय आ गया है।
भारत में इंजीनियर दंगों की भयानक विरासत की शुरुआत इन दंगों से हुई। "अशांति भड़काने, धार्मिक स्थलों के माध्यम से मुसलमानों (या जो भी लक्षित समुदाय है) को भड़काकर दंगे भड़काने और खुद को हिंदुओं के उद्धारकर्ता के रूप में घोषित करने" का खाका इसी दिन पैदा हुआ था।
इस टेम्पलेट का उपयोग करते हुए आरएसएस ने पूरे देश में विस्तार किया और 1931 और 1939 के बीच 60 से 500 शाखाओं में तेजी से विस्तार किया, उस समय तक इसकी सदस्यता 60000 तक पहुंच गई थी। आज इसकी 60000+ शाखाएं हैं।

The terrible legacy of engineered riots in India began with these riots. The Template for "inciting unrest, stirring up riots by provoking Muslims (or whichever the target Community is) via religious places, and declaring themselves as the saviour of Hindus" was born this day
Using This Template RSS grew throughout the nation and expanded exponentially from 60 to 500 branches between 1931 & 1939, by which time its membership had reached 60000. it boasts of 60000+ shakhas today.

#battleofAinJalut #LongThread
In the 13th Century AD, the Tatars committed a great aggression against the Muslims on the Muslim lands, and as a result, the Caliph was killed, & 3/4 of the Muslim lands, including the capital Baghdad, came under the control of the Tatars.
At the Battle of Ain Jalut, he may have also been the first person to use explosive hand cannons in combat. The Mongol defeat set the stage for their subsequent withdrawal & then Conversion to Islam. The Battle was seminal as it protected both the Islamic world and Europe.
In these testing times, a great leader emerged. "Fatih Sultan" Mahmud Saif al-Din Qutz & the battle he won is known as "Ain Jalut". He was ably supported by his lieutenant Ruknuddin Baybars, who played a heroic role in implementing the war tactics of Mongols on themselves.

When Friedrich Max Muller Introduced Sanskrit to the West!

Just before going to London to deliver his last Lecture, Max Muller had asked his friends in Oxford to meet Mr. Graham-Bell, the inventor of the Bell Telephone, which preceded Edison’s more perfect instrument. It was the first ever heard in England.
