Were the Indians and the Mayans brothers???

There are striking similarities between the South Indian Mayan culture and the Maayan culture of Mexico, according to eminent Historian, S. Padmanabhan, General Secretary of Kanyakumari Historical and Cultural Centre.


The influence of Dravidian culture, particularly Keralite culture, is abundantly manifest in architecture, social and religious practices as well as domestic equipment and even personal style of the native people of Mexico known as Maayan, Dr. Padmanabhan said, delivering the G. Venkatasubramaniam Memorial endowment lecture at the Department of History, National College. ‘Padala loga’ The ‘padala loga’ ruled by Mahabali as described in the Puranas is today’s Mexico. The worship of Siva, Naga, Panchaboothas and Nadukal (a stone dedicated to a warrior) is common in Mexico. Sivalingams are found in the Museum as well as many places in the city of Mexico. A heal of Sivalingams is found near the Mexical Pyramid, one of the seven wonders of the World, Dr. Padmanabhan said, citing…

My sweet Earth

Image
There certainly is a lot of speculation regarding the end of the world in 2012. The plethora of opinions comes from people ranging from world renowned scientists and theologians to “lesser known” bloggers and crackpots. But regardless of where the opinions and theories are coming from, they are fascinating. They are based mostly on the ancient Mayan calender. Now what is interesting is that not only is this the solstice, but it is also approaching (2 weeks later) the point of Perihelion. This is the point in the Earth’s orbit where it gets the closest to the sun. Could the additional gravitational pull cause something to occur? Not likely, but combined with other forces, who knows. This closer distance to the sun could make a difference, however, in the event of a solar burst (flare). And I have to mention in this update that recent solar activity has increased dramatically, which could be a problem. So beware of this. Also, there is the possibility that the coming event could be simila…

HYATT-SPICE MARKET -Review

Image
SPICE MARKET:

    An all-day dining restaurant serving buffets for breakfast, lunch and dinner along with a' la carte selections, Spice Market exemplifies a high-energy "live cooking' environment.
The restaurant serves Indian street food mixed with European bistro-style fare. It offers indoor and al fresco seating options overlooking scenic city vistas.

Spread across five live kitchens to justify the extensive reach Indian gastronomy covers, Spice Market encompasses the Tandoor Kitchen (Kebabs, grills, Indian breads), Stove Kitchen (Gravy based recipes, Indian rice delicacies etc.), Chaat Kitchen, Beverage Island and the Dessert Island (hot and cold desserts). Distinctively Indian, the food here promises to capture the flavour and aroma befitting the traditional Indian kitchens spread across the country. Spice Market pays homage to the legendary Indian home and street food.

DECOR:




Spice Market has a vast area and has an open spacious ambiance to it. The d├ęcor is charming wi…

VEEks and THOMAS-review

Image
VEEKS and THOMAS in nungambakkam was the place that we had decided to meet up for the "Chennai BLOGGER Club's first aniv event.I was all exited to meet  my fellow friends,whom i had met at the ITC grand chola INDIBLOGGER MEET.After so much of confusion as to which station is closer to the venue, i got down in nungambakkam and took an auto. It is not really far from nungambakkam station as the auto fellow charged me 45 bucks(could have bargained more).

Veekes and Thomas is a pure Veg restaurant, a chain that has been quite successful in Bangalore,located in a posh yet quite spot situated in a dead end lane of Nungambakkam off Haddows Road .

The restaurant is small and cozy with both indoor and outdoor seating areas. A perfect spot for a get-together and also for a simple date!!. the outdoor seating has very few chairs and seemed perfect for dinner, As it was lunch time we preferred to stay indoors.Nothing fancy about the interior, they've kept it simple.The decor ad…

Things less Thought!!!

Image
We see so many people daily but only few people stay in our mind and their actions worth sharing.... This was one such incident that happened with me when i was travelling from Chennai to Rajmundry.


We were 10 of us in the train and the seats were scattered throughout the train so we were wandering here and there in search of our seats and few of us were in search of the TT so that we could all get accommodated at least in the same coupe.

After so much of begging and pleading with the fellow passengers we all got settled not in the same compartment but in two adjacent compartments.

It was early in the morning with the beautiful sun rise and the lush greeneries of the costal Andra... and the amazing Godavari river flowing with pride. When i was crossing the compartment i happened to hear a person asking his friend not to use the lavatory. Wondering why he was stopping the people from usig the lavatory the fellow passengers were asking if the rest room was not clean and if it sh…

The ITC Grand Chola Experience

Image
Here i get a chance to share the experience on my visit to the resplendent,gigantic,ravishing,overblown monument of luxury which is situated in Chennai,the region's cultural capital.It is THE ITC GRAND CHOLA on my first INDIBLOGGER MEET.!!





Drives us to the sangam age

I was completely impressed with this hotel from the moment we arrived at the fantastic grand entrance.The ITC GRAND embodies the essence of the SouthIndia's most glorious empire,the Cholas.The unequalled artistry expressed during the period in their temples,art and architecture is reflected  in this awe-inspiring hotel.Its a Marble island with lot of intricate detailing.The staff were dressed immaculately, smiling and helping where they could. We walked into a very serene, beautifully scented marble hall and you could feel the luxury already exuding from every direction.For someone like me who loves history it was like going back to the Chola era and entering their grand palace.


Incredible artwork from wood

Image
I recently came across this amazing art work. Since i did not know who Mr Sergei Bobkov was, i looked up the wiki page and also his facebook page and got to know about him.Here i m sharing about this Unknown personality.

"54-year-old Sergei Bobkov has patented a unique technique of creating amazing sculptures out of Siberian cedar wood-chips.
This resident of Kozhany, Russia, has developed his very own technique, that prevents wood-chips from falling apart, in time. After creating about 100-150 chips, from 2-3 inch long cedar stick, he puts them in water for several days. Then, making use of his surgical precision, he carves the chips into any shape he needs.
Sergey has been doing this for some time now, but he has only created 11 wood-chip sculptures. That’s because just one of these incredible artworks takes around six months t complete, at a work rate of 10 to 12 hours a day, with no days off. Sergei Bobkov focuses on wildlife creatures, and he studies their anatomy for month…

TOMATO STORY

Image
i read this story loong back and really wanted to share this: this is so funny but really has a inner meaning to it! :d P.S : This is not the story written by me.

      A Jobless man applied for the position of 'office boy' at Microsoft. The HR manager interviewed him then watched him cleaning the floor as a test.

'You are employed' he said. Give me your e-mail address and I'll send you the application to fill in, as well as date when you may start.
The man replied 'But I don't have a computer, neither an email'.
'I'm sorry', said the HR manager. If you don't have an email, that means you do not exist. And who doesn't exist, cannot have the job.' The man left with no hope at all. He didn't know what to do, with only $10 in his pocket. He then decided to go to the supermarket and buy a 10Kg tomato crate.

He then sold the tomatoes in a door to door round. In less than two hours, he succeeded to double his capital. He repea…
