I am still seeing messages where people are asking whether it would rain as it is being "hyped". Please note that if it doesn't happen we would be the happiest.

But unfortunately - the blogging community on the whole is of the same opinion that there would be heavy rains
Not only Chennai

#Kanchipuram #Chengalpattu #Kallakurichi #Villupuram #Cuddalore #Nagapattinam #Karaikkal #Pondicherry #Ranipet #Thiruvallur #Vellore and even #Krishnagiri should be on high alert as the system is expected to move inland

Which is the World’s oldest Tape Recorder? by Sri Kanchi Paramacharya Mahaswami
Once way back in 1940s/50s someone was conducting an interview with Kanchi Mahaperiyava. That gentleman recorded the interview in a Tape recorder.
@justRamvenkat @KanchiMatham
Periyava then posed a question:
“Does anyone know which is the oldest known #tape #recorder?”
Nobody was able to answer. Then Mahaperiyava asked another question:
“How did #Vishnu #Sahasranamam come to us?”
Everyone said Bhishma Pitamah gave it.
All agreed. @Itishree001
Then #Mahaperiyava posed another query:
“When all were listening to Vishnu Sahasranamam, who took Notes at #Kurukshetra thousands of years back?”
Again silence.
Mahaperiyava started replying to everyone.
“When Bhishma Pitamah was glorifying Lord Krishna with Sahasranama i.e,

3. The demons other than the thiripuraris were by nature very unruly, harassed the celestial to the greatest extent possible. Shri Vishnu, who wants to destroy the demons, came to understand that Mahadev was the only #Divine power who could destroy the demons.

#Karana means 'action' and in the context of dance it indicates a coordinated action of the body, the hands and the feet. There are 108 karanas out of which i am depicting "lalata tilakam" which is the 50th karana

Out of this dancer is depicting #Lalatatilakam - Image
ललाटे तिलकं कुर्याल्ललाटतिलकं तु तत् ।
पृष्ठतः कुञ्चितं कृत्वा व्यतिक्रान्तक्रमं ततः ॥

#Lalatatilakam images show #Shiva (not in the image) lifting his right leg straight upwards parallel to his torso and one of his left arms go up and the hand touches the crown.
One of the right arms of Shiva winds his lifted leg and makes the #abhaya gesture. Some of the earliest of these images are found at #kanchipuram , while some of the later figures of this dance form are from #Chidambaram ,

A Thread on "Trade Relations between Tamil Nadu and South East Asia as Gleaned from Inscriptions...!"

The Commercial and Cultural contacts between Tamil Nadu and South East Asian Countries seem to have existed even from the beginning of the Christian era!
#Sangam Literatures say that the import & export of articles between these countries had happened in great vigour through the ports located on the Coromandal coast, viz #Kollam, #Eyilpattinam, #Kaviripumpattinam, #Tondi, #Marungurpattinam (#Alagankulam), #Korkai and #Kanyakumari!
The author of the Periplus of the Erythrean Sea describes the ports of the Coromandal coast as follows. “Among the market-towns of these countries and harbour where the ships put in from Damirica and from the north, the most important are, in order as they lie, first Camara...1/2

Child Birth in Ancient TamilNadu!

It is tried here to focus the attention of the Scholars on the method of Child Birth in Ancient TamilNadu. The earliest source material for knowing method is the Sangam Literature (5th CE BC to 5th CE AD) which have no direct bearings about it!
But it refers to the bathing of Mother after the delivery of a Child!

#MaduraiKaanchi (ll: 600-603) & #Natrinai mention the purificatory bath of the Mother after having delivered a Child!

#Natrinai (370: 3-4) also refers to the custom of a bath of Ghee by it delivered Mother!
🔹The Teeth of Tiger was tied around the neck of the Child - #Kurunthogai (161: 3-4)

🔹A Rattle like ornament was also worn to the Child - #Purananuru (198: 1-5)
