I will say you why Pongal is Hindu festival & why Muslims & Christians can not even come closer

1. It is the celebration of Sun God Aditya, Who is a Hindu deity. Islam & Christianity are Monotheistic

@ReclaimTemples @punarutthana @LostTemple7 @krithikasivasw
2. This is the initiation of God Aditya entering Makara Rashi in Magha Maasam.

Christians & Muslims celebrate Magham & Makaram?
3. On this day indicating God Aditya's journey, Hindus draw a Kolam/Muggu in the form of Chariot (Ratham of Aditya) whose face is towards the doors of Hindu Homes.

Muslims & Christians celebrate Kolam/Muggu?
4. On this day cattle is brought home & worshipped. They are decorated and given bathe.

Is Islam iconographic religion?
Do christians use Tilakam & Bottu (vermilion) we use to decorate the bulls & cows?
5. The "Pushan" one of the Adityas is the protector of "cattle" as per Rigveda. he is worshipped on this day.

Does Muslims believe in Rigveda or Christians read Rigveda?
6. The Pushan (Aditya) protector of Cattle was sitting near Yagya of Daksha Prajapati, when angered Shiva due to demise of Shakti destroys things there also hit Pushan, who lost all his teeth.

So Pushan Aditya cannot consume solid food.
So, we after sunrise in the center of Kolam/Muggu keep the milk bowl heat the milk add rice to it & cook smooth called " Paramannam" which will be offered to Pushan, the toothless for protecting the cattle, that helped our agri produce.
Does Christians and Muslims believe in the story of how Shiva broke Pushan's teeth. Why we offer a soft Paramannam to the protector of our cattle?

Are these even tales to them?

Like these there are many reasons why a Pongal cannot be Muslim or Christian festival.

Lets know our temples…

What is a Pancha Ratha Temple?

@ReclaimTemples @punarutthana @LostTemple7 Image
Projections in the square base of a temple which also run till the top of Shikhara is called a “Ratha” which looks like a face on external part of main temple.

It is named on basis on number faces a temple has. For example the temple in the picture is a “Pancha Ratha” temple.
This 1200 Yrs old Gurjara Pratihara Temple at Batesar complex near Gwalior is a Pancha Ratha Temple which has five faces on each side running till the top.

The five Rathas or faces look like creepers moving up the ladder, so this style of Shikhara is also called “Latina”.

Look @anulekhaboosa
its been quite sometime that I Have been going through this debate (Sorry for you its been abuse job).

I am from Telangana, Grew up reading the Stories of Komaram Bheem & Poetry of Kaloji.

I belong to a family which has seen atrocities of Razakars.
Now stop abusing & debate respectfully.

History & facts do not become right by angrily using the words like "Bhakth" "watsapp University" "2Rs Troll" etc.

Do you want us to debate with you with such abuses.
You are the same egoistic congressi who is using the word "Bhakth" as an abuse because your hatred towards a political ideology -BJP.

Keep BJP aside, why abuse Hinduism.
Why use the word "Bhakth" in debates.
Is this what is taught to you by @INCIndia & @RahulGandhi ?

This Spotlight of Hampi is the “Prachya Gopuram” (Eastern Entrance) of Vairupaksha Temple, Hampi.

This “Nava Tala” (Nine Storeyed) Gopuram is the epitome of Temple Building activity of Vijayanagara Rulers.

@ReclaimTemples @punarutthana @LostTemple7
The uniqueness of their style was - the Base of the structure was made of Granite while the upper portion is of Brick & Stucco.

This was commissioned by “Prolugnati Tippa”, the officer of “Prouda Devaraya” in mid of 15th century.
This Massive entrance is the symbol of how even the officers of Indian Rulers could build such structures.

The magnificent Keshava Temple of Somanathapura was built by “Dandanayaka”, the general of Hoysalas.

and we Dhimmies get contented with Ayodhya, while thousands of temples are still under Mosques.

@ReclaimTemples @punarutthana @LostTemple7

This mushrooming do not happen a day, took decades and I explain how this happens below...
1. First they identify a unrecognised burial or the one related to some One from the community.

clear and make some space around it & cover it with a "Chadar"
2. Then paint the stone pillars or rocks around the area with green and tie flags.

one person from the area will daily clean it & will sit whole day taking care of that burial.

My Grand Mother said stories of how Razakars made them dance naked around Bathukamma.
She said she was between 12 -15 yrs then. She is no more now. Every One of her generation will say episodes of atrocities by Razakars.

They spared women only if she can pee as far as men, that's their Legacy.
Her name was "Veeramma".
She said - When Razakars entered village everybody hid themselves in Cattle "Koshtams". They beat men till they pissed in their Dhothis. The raped women by Razakars remained like a Widow.
