As monuments are being torn down i am going to create one. The work started last week when i re-homed a tatty old rescue sword. All week i have been tinkering. Yesterday i started the research.

This will be an ongoing thread for a bit.

Time hadn't been kind. Must have been stored either completely damp or in a damp space. Active rust was having a go at the blade and guard leaving some quite deep pitting. Doubtful it was going to see another century. ImageImage
The 1897 pattern sword is very common and reasonably cheap. All antique swords are like time machines to me. They were present in momentous times and often carried by people in fear of their lives. I can't help travelling back and wondering at it all when holding one. Image

तलवारींचे प्रकार!!! एकूण तलवारींचे प्रकार किती आहेत असे पेजवरील एका मित्राने मेसेज पाठवला आहे. तर, तलवारींचे प्रकार हा पुन्हा विवादास्पद विषय असून वेगवेगलर तज्ञ, अभ्यासक आणि संग्रहालय संकलक यांच्यात मतांतरे आहेत.

#मराठी #मराठा #इतिहासमहाराष्ट्राचा #इतिहास #History #india
आपापल्या परीने तलवारींचे प्रकार, उपप्रकार आणि देश-परिस्थिती-घडण या प्रमाणे त्यात कमी-अधिक संख्या दिसून येते. मुळात, तलवारींचे प्रकार किती अशी वर्गवारी करणे यापेक्षा तलवारींची कार्यशैली काय यावरून मुख्य प्रकार ठरवून,
मग त्यातील वेगवेगळ्या घडण याप्रमाणे उपप्रकार किंवा variant ठरवावेत असे आमचे मत आहे. जगातील प्रमुख तज्ञ किंवा संकलक हे ही अशीच वर्गवारी करतात. नाहीतर, या विषयाला निश्चित स्वरूप आणि पूर्णत्व यावयाचे नाही. विषय मोठा आहे, तरी आपण आज तलवारींचे कार्यशैली बध्द मुख्य प्रकार पाहू:

I started playing #guitar in college. Some of my friends back home played, so I thought I'd learn. It's been years since I kept up with it. With no job and an empty house, I had time. Plus, I could crank up my amp. Ava would have hated it. All the more reason to do it.
#vss365
Strumming a few chords or playing a riff through a loud amp usually makes me feel better. It's more of a distraction this time. My amp is a little old. Even a #ragpicker might pass on it. "If you're not going to play it, sell it," Ava nagged. Life always got in the way.

Or I got in the way. Not even ten years ago I kept getting sick all the time. Painful stomach cramps would radiate weakness throughout my body. I learned how to wash it away like healing #rainwater. That's when I really started to figure out who I was and what I could do.

My mother taught us to ward off the Evil Eye by spitting. 💦

According to this #Syriac #manuscript (Or 6673) there are more hygienic ways of eliminating it, and a host of other ailments, misfortunes and generic evils. Let’s see what they are!

(Props to the Evangelists)

Let’s cut the gentle humour for... one tweet. This #manuscript was copied at the end of the 19th century by Church of the East believers in northern #Iraq. It’s part of a long tradition of prayer and medicine in the region, and it relies on a number of different belief systems.
Ok, first up is fear. St. George was not afraid when he slew the #dragon (also identified here as a Great #Monster), so why should you be? Offer him a prayer to allay distress and fears.

🐲🐉🙏
