when temple pujari used to bring water for Abishek,he was troubled by a asura named Kanjan. Pujari complained to Shiva Bhagwan about his troubles & on hearing his plea,Shiva instructed Nandhi to kill the demon.Nandhi tore the demon into 8 pieces.
These 8 parts fell in 8different places.Later, in all these places Shiva temples were constructed.
Asura Kanjan pleaded to Shiva for mukti,Shiva blessed by saying that wherever his blood had fallen, a Shiva linga would appear. Even today one can see Shiva lingams on nearby hill.

Each and every square feet of
Kedareshwara temple,Halebidu, Karnataka is carved illustrating #Legend #stories from Puranas, Ramayan & Mahabharat.

Just see the #sculpture depicting Bheeshma on the bed made out of arrows & waiting for Uttarayana Punya Kaala to attain mukti.
1/2 ImageImage
Kedareshwara temple is Trikuta temple,dedicated to Shiva- Kedareshwara.This temple is a twin to Hoysaleshwar temple,but without Nandi
Main shrine has a Shiv Linga,but rest of 2 has no deities.

Take some time to see outer walls,as even smallest sculpture will portray stories.

@GovParsonMO As detailed by the gov after Greitens
sheer stupidity that truly frightens.
Show me incompetence:
Parson’s claims make no sense. His
feigned ignorance surely enlightens.

@LottaFightLeft @PhyllisMarion7
@GovParsonMO @BluebirdsofMO @classEireland @EnglishTeach07 @jzikah @LottaFightLeft @PhyllisMarion7 Parson’s tweet makes it patently clear
Donald’s virus won’t soon disappear.
As Mike plays it both ways
many eyebrows we raise.
His mixed messages ring insincere.
We can vote #LIBERTY,
or vote death — we must #VOTE
like it impacts our breath. 😷

@GovParsonMO @BluebirdsofMO @classEireland @EnglishTeach07 @jzikah @LottaFightLeft @PhyllisMarion7 @nicolergalloway @mikeparson County Hickory’s dithering dork to
instruct sex ed would draw a stork.
Science ain’t his forte;
later victims will pay,
but at least he’s an expert on pork.

So to no one’s amazement or shock every county went red on Mike’s clock.

Veer Kunwar Singh, one of the heroes of the 1857 Revolt, who at 80 years, led the rebellion in Bihar and Eastern UP. And gave one of the toughest fights ever to the British, constantly harassing them till his end.
Kunwar Singh belonged to the Ujjainiya Rajput clan, who are primarily found in Bihar- Eastern UP. They claim descent from Raja Bhoj, and in fact Bhojpur region gets it's name from this. Most of the Purbiya soldiers known for their martial skills were from this clan.
What is currently regarded as the Bhojpuri region is primarily Purvanchal or Eastern UP, and the Western part of Bihar, bordering Mithila and Magadha. This region of Bihar was primarily one single district Shahabad, that was bifurcated in 1972 into Bhojpur and Rohtas( Sasaram).

Story time.
I was in 10th grade, we had a special speaker come in for “political correctness training”... for high schoolers... this went about as well as you’d think it could. Anyway, we were on the topic of “mentally challenged” people.
We were instructed to henceforth refer to them as “cognitively impaired”, to which someone yelled out “THAT SOUNDS RETARDED”. Now I don’t know if this lady has ever worked with remorseless highschoolers before, but let me tell you, this lady was SHOOK.
Her face went as red as a dying star and started her “how dare you” speech. She demanded whoever said it stand up, to which another student shouted “if you think he gonna tattle on himself you might be cOGnITiVeLy IMpaiReD” this ladies soul left her body right then and there.

#thread #BlackPower #BlackRevolution #BlackYouth History was made today in Ldn: Militant independent black working class youth-led history, in the face of an formidable array of forces railed against them from the govt, to the fascist,from left /#BLMUK to wellknown celebrities.
This is an account from the direct experiences of MXM members today, and also our close unified approach with @LondonBlackRevs and several other radical black formations.
The background today is nearly 10yrs of a general absence of radical grassroots resistance, the last time was Aug2011 when we rose up for 3 days after the police murder of #MarkDuggan #BroadwaterFarm crew.
