Thread on Ancient Indian Gurukul System

Gurukul is a combination word – Gu = darkness + ru = light + kul = residence and flock. So, this means a residence where a group of people are taken from darkness to light and the person is called “Guru”. Image
The Gurukul was an important aspect of life in Ancient India and finds place in the Samskara (refining) process as explained in the Grhyasutras (rules of family life).

This refining process in ancient India was designed to prepare a person to live life in accordance with his

Thread on the Construction of Rath Yatra Chariots

The 3 wooden chariots are constructed newly every year. 1072 pieces of logs are brought from Dasapalla and Ranpur forests. A particular family of carpenters owns the hereditary right to construct the chariots.

Nearly 125+ carpenters work for 58 days at the Mahakhala (in front of the King’s palace) and shape out 2188 pieces of wood for the construction of three chariots. The construction work commences on the Akshya Trutiya. Each chariot is covered with new cloths of radiant color;
nearly 1090 meters of cloth are used for this purpose. Each chariot is fastened with four long ropes manufactured from coconut fibers to facilitate the devotees to pull them. Iron nails, brackets, clamps, etc. used for this purpose are indigenously prepared by the native smiths.

Underwater Cultural Heritage

Mahabalipuram, the famous center of Pallava art and architecture, is situated on the coast of Tamil Nadu. The local traditions and the foreign accounts vividly refer to the submergence of six temples out of seven that existed here.

The underwater archaeological explorations in the area have revealed many structural remains including fallen walls, scattered dressed stone blocks, a few steps leading to a platform and many other structural remains. The structures are badly damaged and scattered.
These structures may be remains of huge complexes or the temples of seven pagodas. As Pallavas encouraged the temple architecture at Mahabalipuram during 8th century AD, these structures may be assigned to be belonging to the same period.
