M-Mahendravarman

Image
Mahendravarman I (reigned c. 600–630) contributed to the greatness of the Pallava dynasty. Some of the most ornate monuments at Mamallapuram, especially those dedicated to the Hindu god Shiva, were constructed under his rule (though born a Jain, Mahendravarman converted to Shaivism). He was a great patron of art and architecture and is known for introducing a new style to Dravidian.

 He bore many titles like Chatrumalla, Gunabhara, Vichitrachitta, Mattavilasa, Avanibhajana, Sankirnajati, each one having a specific relation to one of his qualities or aptitudes. He bore even the uncomplimentary title of Kalahapriya
As a Śaivite convert, he did much to support the resurgence of Hinduism in south India after a long period of the religion’s being eclipsed by the popularity of Jainism and Buddhism.

The big Fat Indian wedding is often an important part of every family.Marriages are filled with rituals and celebrations that continue for several days.The traditional Indian wedding is about two families being brought together Socially. Lakhsare spent on the wedding again to show the social status. For those who are wealthy there is no issue, but the problem arises for the middle class families.

  The average cost of an Indian wedding from the brides side is somewhere between 10 to 20 lakhs. Its fun to attend others wedding, but when it comes to our own family we realise  what a burden it is. There is again a social pressure here. Even in this century where the girl is as equally educated as the guy is, the marriage expenditure has to be taken up by the brides family. How is this right? Why cant the bridegroom share half the cost?


 I cant believe people are still ready to give dowry for girls who are well educated and earning more than the bridegroom. Why? because the girl is over…
