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.

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.

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…
