On the banks of Vennar River, in the districts of Thanjavur, lies a small village called Kallaperumbur, home to two temples of antiquity - Brihannayaki Sametha Kailasanathar (A Shiva Temple) and the Varadaraja Perumal (A Vishnu Temple). (1/6)
With the inscriptions found in the dilapidated gopuram of the Shiva Temple (Image 2), we can trace back this temple to the period of Kulottunga Chola of the 12th /13th century. (2/6)

One of my favourite things to do is walk around the “city”.

Had one such walk last night and captured some of the “dying breeds” as I see board after board with names like “9 Sadashiv” etc!

Thanks @kunal_tilak for baptising me on the “Pune Misal” at Badshahi!

The beauty and the beast!

All the old structures will soon be gone with the wind and replaced by Monstrosities.

Guess it’s all part of the times!
@GodboleSandeep always something that reminds me of you!

Bhimbetka, the treasure of rock shelters, is believed to be home to many over centuries. One of the residents influenced the name.
What supports this legend are the names of the villages around Bhimbetka. One village is named Pandapur while Bhiyapura is believed to be derived
from Bhimpura. Legend says that the Lakhajuhar forest was once the wax (lakh) palace of the Pandavas.
These rock caves are believed to be the oldest petroglyphs in the world. Some of the rock paintings in the area are very similar to aboriginal rock art found in Australia and the
Paleolithic Lascaux cave paintings discovered in France. Despite there being more than 700 rock shelters, only 12 to 15 are open and accessible to visitors.
The sudden discovery of these caves allow us a rare opportunity to look into the past and the lifestyle of the times. It

@MandyMallia Read your sister carefully.
You have: i) ShivNair, China,Paddy Hills.
ii) Paddy Hills, was run by"brother Peter").
There is the little detail of their collective"rogue"behaviour when it came to securing de Bono IP rights-their"post cash-cow"priority
@MandyMallia Then there is the detail of PaddyHills bungling EdwarddeBono's medication+strategising so that he was effectively locked-up. Caspar was aware of bungling. He also has an interest in securing same rights -around same table.
Then you have MaxGanado enter the fray with Paddy's team.
@MandyMallia I invite new female assistant Commissioner, not AngeloGafa and not PeterPaulVassallo-who both did nothing in 2012/2013, to finally take up the matter,seriously,+investigate thoroughly.

Science behind Gowtram Genetics - Do you know why every time you sit in a puja the priest asks you for Gowtra? What is Gowtram system? Why do we have this? Why do we consider this to decide marriages? Why should sons carry the gowtram of father, why not daughter?
How/why does gowtra of a daughter change after she gets married? What is the logic? In fact this is an amazing genetic science we follow.
Let's see the science of genetics behind gowtra systems.
The word GOWTRA formed from two Sanskrit words GAU (means cow) Trahi (means shed)
Gowtra means cowshed. Gowtra is like cowshed protecting a particular male lineage.
We identify our male lineage/gowtra by considering to be descendants of the 8 great MahaRishis (Saptarishis + Bharadwaja MahaRishi). All the other gowtras were evolved from these only.

#Catalunya és un país extremadament ric en #patrimoni #arqueològic #protohistòric. Molt més que altres nacions reconegudes arreu pel seu patrimoni i que, a més, l’estimen, el valoren i en viuen, com poden ser el cas d’#Anglaterra o d’#Escòcia.

El patrimoni protohistòric d'aquestes altres nacions, tot i ser extraordinari és, al costat del nostre, de putxinel·lis. I, malgrat això, ells l’han sabut convertir intel·ligentment en un actiu cultural i econòmic (òbviament, Image
