The Night of an Explorer

Few thoughts from the pages of my own ‘Travel Life’ are presented in this post, and the reasons to be a stargazer along with few benefits of travelling at nights.

I’m a travel freak, I love to Travel and Explore new and unseen places, Sometimes the traveling makes me feel from the bottom of my heart that,  this life itself is a gift to explore the unknown. Some says its ‘god’, I say it’s the ‘Truth’.

Travel itself is very interesting and I would like to add some more fun by travelling at ‘Night’.

Why at night!??

It’s as usual when the wheels are on the city, and the magic begins once the wheels cross the city and enter into the outskirts, and it would be adding more and more beauty by moving each mile away from the city lights. And would reach to peaks, while the wheels are passing through Completely dark paddy fields or mountain ranges.

From that moment, The universe makes me more difficult to keep my head down. Enjoying the cool breeze besides having the vast universe in my eyes makes my journey an amazing one.

The call of Universe.

What a view … The sky is full of stars and the mighty moon.. And that travel would be more amazing during the new moon night. It wakes up the kid in me and makes me gaze the twinkling stars till my retina get a hard hit by the light pollution.

Star Gazing? But Why?

Yeah, I am a star gazer, this stargazing makes me feel, what I am in this vast/ infinite universe.

Our sorrows, our problems, even our life  and  everything looks very tiny when we look at the stars, and it also makes me feel that there are infinite solutions to each problem, and we have millions of ways to start our understanding to have the complete knowledge of this universe.

The only thing we have to do is to start from somewhere, and make ourselves ready for this great journey, and through step by step understanding, make ourselves ready for the next level of experiences. It’s all an adventurous journey, the journey of the life from star to star.

The whole day’s stupidity will be vanished by the positive Gazing of the night stars.

Let me add the other benefit of night travelling, you can spend and dedicate your whole day for your exploration and on photography. Besides this we can have less traffic too, that could be a bonus for the travelers.

Just give it a try, travel at night and experience the abundance of love from the distant stars of our universe and let us know your experiences in comments.

So far in space now on the land, Statue of Unity, the world’s largest Statue, unveils in India

India has launched 257 satellites for 28 different countries as of September, 2018 and holding the all-time record in the satellite launch, Now holding the record for having the largest statue in the world.

On the occasion of birth anniversary of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel, PM Modi inaugurated the world’s tallest statue – Statue of Unity to the nation.

Eight years after proposing the ambitious project, Prime Minister Narendra Modi Wednesday unveiled the ‘Statue of Unity’,  the world’s tallest statue at 182 metres -built in honour of freedom fighter and India’s first Home Minister Sardar VallabhBhai Patel. The statue stands on Sadhu Island on the Narmada in Gujarat and is twice the height of the Statue of Liberty in the US.

The world’s tallest statue – Statue of Unity – Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel
Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel and his contribution to the country:

Vallabhbhai Patel (31 October 1875  – 15 December 1950), popularly known as Sardar Patel, was an Indian politician who served as the first Deputy Prime Minister of India. He was an Indian barrister and statesman, a senior leader of the Indian National Congress and a founding father of the Republic of India who played a leading role in the country’s struggle for independence and guided its integration into a united, independent nation. In India and elsewhere, he was often called Sardar, Chief in Hindi, Urdu, and Persian. He acted as de facto Supreme Commander-in-chief of the Indian army during the political integration of India and the Indo-Pakistani War of 1947.

Patel was born and raised in the countryside of Gujarat. He was a successful lawyer. He subsequently organised peasants from Kheda, Borsad, and Bardoli in Gujarat in non-violent civil disobedience against the British Raj, becoming one of the most influential leaders in Gujarat. He rose to the leadership of the Indian National Congress, organising the party for elections in 1934 and 1937 while promoting the Quit India Movement.

As the first Home Minister and Deputy Prime Minister of India, Patel organised relief efforts for refugees fleeing from Punjab and Delhi and worked to restore peace. He led the task of forging a united India, successfully integrating into the newly independent nation those British colonial provinces that had been “allocated” to India. Besides those provinces that had been under direct British rule, approximately 565 self-governing princely states had been released from British suzerainty by the Indian Independence Act of 1947. Threatening military force, Patel persuaded almost every princely state to accede to India. His commitment to national integration in the newly independent country was total and uncompromising, earning him the sobriquet “Iron Man of India”. He is also remembered as the “patron saint of India’s civil servants” for having established the modern all-India services system. He is also called the “Unifier of India”.

Dedicating the statue to the nation, PM Modi said, “Statue of Unity is an answer to all those who question the existence of India. The height of the statue is to remind the youth that the future of the country will be as huge as this. It is also symbolic of our engineering and technology affordability.”

PM Narendra Modi Paying tributes to Sardar Patel

Crediting Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel for “uniting India,” PM Modi said, “Had Sardar Patel not united the country, we would need visas to see lions or pay homage at Somnath or view the Charminar in Hyderabad. Patel converted India’s diversity into its biggest strength. The country is today following the path shown by Patel and is moving towards becoming the world’s greatest economic and strategic power.”

PM Narendra Modi with World’s Tallest Statue

Built at a cost of Rs 2,989 crores ($430m), the project took  record 33 months to complete having  129 tonnes of iron at the base of the statue. Apart from the statue itself, there are five other related sites that are constructed along with the world’s tallest statue. These include the walkway, the ticket counter, the food court, the four-lane approach highway, and the ‘Shrestha Bharat Bhavan’- a 52-room three-star lodging facility for the visitors coming to see the monument.

The shawl across Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel’s shoulders accentuates his stately bearing. All around him, the landscape is dotted and shaped by the marks of independent India’s progress — roads, towers, and a dam.

Often hailed as a great unifier, Patel was showered with praise by a fellow son of Gujarat: Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Who designed the Statue of Unity?

Padma Bhushan awardee, Ram Vanji Sutar, a 93-year-old acclaimed sculptor who graduated from the prestigious J.J School of Art in Bombay designed the statue.

He has sculpted masterpieces including that of Mother Chambal at Gandhi Sagar Dam in Madhya Pradesh, equestrian statue of Maharaja Ranjit Singh in Amritsar, and numerous statues of Mahatma Gandhi.

Who built the statue?

It has been built by Larsen and Toubro  (L&T) and the state-run Sardar Sarovar Narmada Nigam Ltd. It took about 250 engineers and 3,400 labourers to construct the statue.

Malaysia-based Eversendai, which constructed Dubai’s famous Burj Al Arab and Burj Khalifa buildings, was handed the contract for the steel framework.

Construction materials used to build the statue:

It has been built using over 70,000 tonnes of cement, 18,500 tonnes of reinforcement steel, 6,000 tonnes of structural steel and 1,700 metric tonnes of bronze, which was used for the outer cladding of the structure.

The Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel Rashtriya Ekta Trust (SVPRET), set up by Modi in 2011 arranged some 129 tonnes of iron implements from nearly 100 million farmers in 169,000 villages across all states to construct the base of the statue.

How was the design finalised?

The statue is conceived as a naturalistic depiction of Sardar Patel in a walking pose.

To get it right, designers sifted through 2,000 photographs of Sardar Patel before picking the one that they would model it on and then converted the two-dimensional photograph into a three-dimensional model.

Costing of tickets

The statue will be open for the public visit from November 3. People will have to book tickets online to visit the statue – at www.soutickets.in

Entry ticket for adults is priced at Rs 120 while for children (between three to 15 years), it is Rs 60

Time for Introspection in Love & Relationship

Take a moment in your busy day, spend sometime with yourself  and think what you are doing with your relationship or with some one you love, in the name of love

Love is the great feeling of ‘being’ in abundance, the ‘Life’ exists by surrounding the Love, without love there is no meaning for the existence.

Osho made the entire essence of love in a single quote

“If you love a flower, don’t pick it up.
Because if you pick it up it dies and it ceases to be what you love.
So if you love a flower, let it be.
Love is not about possession.
Love is about appreciation.”

Possessiveness  makes the relationship bitter, the complete understanding and awareness of the ‘self’ as well as the partner who ever involved in Love/ Relationship can add a good fragrance to the relationship and makes the relationship stay strong for ever.

The wound is the place where the light enters you

‘The wound is the place where the light enters you’ a beautiful quote from the 13th century Sufi philosopher Rumi has got a great and deep meaning.

Besides his other works, some of his quotes are still an inspiration for many around the world.

In this quote, Rumi blended his thoughts on the suffering, ego, hurt and the almighty god. Here the light represents knowledge, consciousness, and God.

When everything is going good, during our good times we are enjoying our Ego and there is a chance that we might not continue the spiritual practices. And when our life hit with bad luck, during the hard times we suffer a lot and during which we might turn ourselves towards almighty/ god.

The suffering or hurt what we undergo would take us into our deeper state of consciousness and many questions arises in our heart, this state of suffering was beautifully mentioned by Rumi as ‘A Wound’, so this state of being will make the individual think about ‘Himself’ and the almighty god and sooner or later he will understand more about the true essence of life and the real meaning of God, this entire process was simplified and mentioned by rumi as ‘Light Entry’ to the life of individual.

Story of the sage Markandeya, the boy who challenged death 

“Markandeya consoled his parents saying that death was not a thing which wise people should dread. It is as natural as birth.”

Markandeya  is an ancient rishi (sage) from the Hindu tradition, born in the clan of Bhrigu Rishi. He is celebrated as a devotee of both Shiva and Vishnu and is mentioned in a number of stories from the Puranas. The Markandeya Purana especially, comprises a dialogue between Markandeya and a sage called Jaimini, and a number of chapters in the Bhagavata Purana are dedicated to his conversations and prayers.He is also mentioned in the Mahabharata. Markandeya is venerated within all mainstream Hindu traditions.

Today, Markandeya Tirtha, where the sage Markandeya wrote the Markandeya Purana is situated on a trekking route to the Yamunotri Shrine in the Uttarkashi district, Uttarakhand, India

Shiva Protecting his devotee Markandeya from Yama, from Dhenupureeshwarar Temple a 10th century Chola Temple, built by Sundara Chola (954-971 CE), Madambakkam, Chennai

Sage Mrikandu was leading an ascetic life in a forest along with his wife,  Marudhvathi. They were childless for a long time. Mrikandu performed intense penance  for several years in order to please Lord Shiva to have children. One day pleased by his great devotion Lord Shiva in all his splendour appeared before him and said “ I am pleased by your endless devotion, Ask from me any boon you desire”

Mrikandu was overjoyed. He prayed to Lord Shiva thus: “O Lord! I am childless. Grant me a son.”

The Lord said in reply, “Do you desire to have a virtuous, wise and pious son who will live up to sixteen years or a dull- witted, evil-natured son who will live long?”. The sage Mrikandu did not hesitate over the choice. He did not want a worthless son. He begged only for the short-lived son of whom he could be proud. Lord Shiva granted the request of his devotee and departed.

After some time Marudhvathi conceived and gave birth to a son. The parents were extremely happy about the new arrival whom they named ” Markandeya”. When Markandeya was – five, Mrikandu arranged for his studies. Even in boyhood Markandeya mastered all the Vedas and Shastras. His pleasing ways endeared him to his teachers and elders. The boy was liked by one and all.

When he reached the age of twelve, his parents arranged his Upanayana (sacred thread ceremony). He was initiated into the chanting of the mystic Gayathri Mantra. The boy was very regular in performing the Sandhya Vandana (a daily ritual performed) which pleased his parents and other elders. He was thus spending his days very happily, delighting everyone by his charming looks and pleasant behaviour.

But the parents were sad at heart and whenever they looked at their son a gloom spread over their face. They did not tell Markandeya that he was not destined to live long.

The sixteenth year was fast approaching. One day, unable to control their grief, they wept before him. Markandeya was surprised. He asked them gently the reason for their grief. Mrikandu, with tears running down his cheeks, said, “O my son! According to Lord Shiva’s boon you are destined to live only for sixteen years. How can we withstand this? We are helpless and do not know what to do.”

Markandeya consoled his parents saying that death was not a thing which wise people should dread. It is as natural as birth.

The next day the boy came to them and said, “Dear father and mother, do not worry for me. I am confident of winning over death. Pray bless me that I may succeed in my endeavour. Permit me to perform severe penance to please the Lord.” The parents blessed him heartily and sent him for penance.

Markandeya then took the blessings from his parents went into a deep forest to perform the penance, he did a great penance and the time was flying at greater rate.

Lord yama, the lord of death, knows the time has come to take back the soul of Markandeya and his life was to come to an end. He sent his servants to take the life of Markandeya, in spite of his great devotion they could not approach him for the radiation from him was too intense for them. They returned back to Yama and said that, they were unable to approach this young boy.

 

In vain of his powers, lord yama himself came on his wonted black buffalo with his pasam, the well- known rope with a noose for taking out the young lad’s soul from his body and carry it away. Yama saw the young devotee engaged in the worship of Lord Shiva. Yama could not let the worship be completed if his duty as the God of Death was to be properly performed.

As the Markandeya could not be allowed to live a minute longer after the completion of the sixteenth year. Normally invisible to human eyes, this time Yama had been forced to show himself to the young boy by virtue of the latter’s intense piety and devotion to God. Yama threw his rope with the loop and it went and encircled Markandeya’s neck and also the Shiva Linga. The young boy prayed to lord shiva, pleased by his great devotion, The Shiva Linga at once split into two and Shiva emerged in all his fury attacking Yama for his act of aggression. After defeating Yama in battle to the point of death, Shiva then revived him, under the condition that the devout youth would live forever. For this act, Shiva was thereafter also known as Kalantaka (“Ender of Death”).

Markandeya got the names Mrityunjaya and Kalakala.

Then, turning to the young devotee, with whose piety he was highly pleased, Lord Shiva blessed him with deathlessness. He said to Markandeya, “Every desire of yours will be fulfilled. You will never be old or grey – haired. You will live virtuous and famous till the end of the world. Omniscience will be an asset in you.”

As per the story of Markandeya, an excerpt from Bhagavatam 12th canto and 9th  chapter.

To this day, the Hindus reckon Markandeya as one of their immortals. It is said that Markandeya is a great Chiranjivi, one who lives with the body forever and whose body always appears young, beautiful and saintly on account of his yogic powers Markandeya has become proverbial for long life. The blessing of the elders even today is, “May you live like Markandeya, forever youthful and beautiful.”

Markandeya the author of one of the oldest puranas, called  Markandeya purna, this is one of the Puranas that lacks a sectarian presentation of ideas in favour of any particular god.  It is famous for including the Devi Mahatmya within it, the oldest known treatise on Devi (goddess) as the Supreme Truth and creator of the universe. The text is considered as a central text of the Hindu Goddess-related Shaktism tradition, with an extraordinary expression of reverence for the feminine.

The oldest surviving manuscript of the Devi Māhātmya (part of Markandeya Purana), on palm-leaf, in an early Bhujimol script, Bihar or Nepal, 11th century. (Source: Wiki)

The extant manuscripts of this Purana have 137 chapters, of which chapters 81 through 93 is the Devi Mahatmya. Tradition and some medieval era texts assert that the Markandeya Purana has 9,000 verses, but surviving manuscripts have about 6,900 verses. The text presents a diverse range of topics, with socio-cultural information and symbolism for Vedic ideas and metaphysical thought.

From ChandraSekharastakam, by the sage Markandeya,

रत्नसानुशरासनं रजताद्रिशृङ्गनिकेतनं
शिञ्जिनीकृतपन्नगेश्वरमच्युताननसायकम् ।
क्षिप्रदग्धपुरत्रयं त्रिदिवालयैरभिवन्दितं

“I seek refuge in Him, who has the moon,

Who resides on the mountain of silver,
Who made the serpent Vasuki as rope,
Who made Lord Vishnu as arrows,
And quickly destroyed the three cities,
And who is saluted by the three worlds,
And so what can the God of death do to me?”

Bible Museum says five of its Dead Sea Scrolls are fake

The Museum of the Bible in Washington, DC says five of its 16 most valuable artifacts, the Dead Sea Scrolls fragments in their collection are fake and will not be displayed anymore.

The announcement has serious implications not only for the Bible Museum but for other evangelical Christian individuals and institutions who paid top dollar for what now seems to be a massive case of archaeological fraud.

Jeffrey Kloha, chief curator for the Museum of the Bible, said in a statement that the revelation is “an opportunity to educate the public on the importance of verifying the authenticity of rare biblical artifacts, the elaborate testing process undertaken and our commitment to transparency.”

The Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered in a series of twelve caves around the site known as Wadi Qumran near the Dead Sea in the West Bank (of the Jordan River) between 1946 and 1956 by Bedouin shepherds and a team of archeologists.

Qumran Caves, where the most ancient Hebrew manuscripts found

German-based scholars tested the fragments and found that five “show characteristics inconsistent with ancient origin and therefore will no longer be displayed at the museum.”

As per CNN “ we raised questions about the museum’s Dead Sea Scroll fragments in an article published last November, as the Green family prepared to unveil their new, $500 million museum. At 430,000 square feet, and with views of the Capitol, the Bible museum represents a significant investment for its evangelical founders.” And they added, Now scholars say the Dead Sea forgeries could be part of the most significant sham in biblical archeology since the “Gospel of Jesus’ Wife,” a fiasco that hoodwinked a Harvard scholar and made worldwide news in 2012. Some scholars estimate that as many as 70 forged fragments have hit the market since 2002.

The scrolls are a collection of ancient Jewish religious texts first discovered in the mid-1940s in caves on the western shore of the Dead Sea in what is now Israel. The massive cache of Hebrew documents is believed to date back to the days of Jesus. With more than 9,000 documents and 50,000 fragments, the entire collection took decades to fully excavate.

The Great Isaiah Scroll, which is now preserved at Israel Museum (Original)

Most of the scrolls and fragments are tightly controlled by the Israeli Antiquities Authority. But around 2002, a wave of new fragments began mysteriously appearing on the market, despite skepticism from Biblical scholars.

Jeffrey Kloha, chief curator for the Museum of the Bible,  “As an educational institution entrusted with cultural heritage, the museum upholds and adheres to all museum and ethical guidelines on collection care, research and display.”

These fragments, they warned, were specifically designed to target American evangelical Christians, who prize the scrolls. That appears to be exactly what happened; a Baptist seminary in Texas and an evangelical college in California reportedly paid millions to purchase alleged pieces of the scrolls.

Also eagerly buying up fragments was the Green family — evangelical Oklahoma billionaires who run the Hobby Lobby chain of craft stores and who famously sued the Obama administration on religious grounds, saying they didn’t want to pay to provide their employees access to the morning-after pill or intrauterine devices.

On the website, “The Lying Pen of Scribes,” scholars and scientists have identified more than 70 purported Dead Sea Scroll fragments that have surfaced on the antiquities market since 2002. Ninety percent of those are fake, said Arstein Justnes, a professor of biblical studies at the University of Agder in Norway, including the Museum of the Bible’s.

As reported by CNN,  In April 2017, Bible Museum sent five fragments to the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und-prüfung (BAM), a German institute for analyzing materials, where scholars tested for 3D digital microscopy and conducted material analyses of the ink and sediment on the papyrus. Scholars have theorized that forgers write on top of ancient scraps of papyrus or leather, making the scrolls appear authentic until the ink is tested.Their report, which the Bible Museum said they recently received, “further raises suspicions about the authenticity of all five fragments.”

Before the Dead Sea Scrolls were discovered 70 years ago, the earliest and most complete version of the Hebrew Bible was from the 9th century. But then Bedouin shepherds stumbled on the scrolls, hidden away for nearly 2,000 years in caves in Qumran, on the western shore of the Dead Sea. In an interview before the Bible museum opened last Fall, Steve Green told CNN that wasn’t sure who sold his family the Dead Sea Scroll fragments. “There’s been different sources, but I don’t know specifically where those came from.”

Who Invented Radio ? Exposing the Truth behind this incredible invention that changed the world

Who invented RADIO?

You all know that, The Nobel Prize in Physics 1909 was awarded jointly to Guglielmo Marconi and Karl Ferdinand Braun “in recognition of their contributions to the development of wireless telegraphy.as per Nobel, Marconi was Affiliated to Marconi Wireless Telegraph Co. Ltd., London, United Kingdom at the time of the award

“In the late 1880s a previously unknown type of radiation was discovered – radio waves. It was found to have the same nature as light, but with a greater wavelength. Various physicists and technicians investigated whether radio waves could be used to transmit signals. In 1895, Guglielmo Marconi used radio waves to transmit signals over a distance of several kilometers. He developed the technology in subsequent years to achieve greater range. The foundation for both wireless telegraphy and radio had been laid.”

Let me tell you the truth, ‘Nikola Tesla’ the real inventor of Radio.

Please watch this Two Minute video to understand how the Inventions of Tesla were being credited to others. It explains clearly the invention of Radio and reveal the ‘Truth’ untold.

“Marconi died in 1937. Tesla died in 1943 and six months after his death the US Supreme Court ruled that all of Marconi’s radio patents were invalid and awarded the patents for radio to Tesla. So, for the past 74 years, we still believe that Marconi invented radio.”

This is the time to rewrite our Text Books and add Nikola Tesla’s inventions to the Curriculum.

Please Share this post and Thank Tesla for his great Work

Spectacular Event in Sky : Orionids meteor shower 2018: Peaks overnight tonight

The October’s Spectacular celestial show is back  after slowly building up in intensity throughout October, The Orionid meteor shower peaks later tonight.

Before going to directly into the event, Lets see what actually these Orionid meteors are.

As the Comet 1P/Halley, or Halley’s Comet as it is more commonly known, orbits the Sun it sheds bits and pieces of its outer layers.

This cosmic debris gets left behind in the comet’s orbital highway which the Earth then pass through every May and October.

In May, the debris gives birth to the Eta Aquarids meteor shower and the Orionids in October.

However the famous comet swings by the earth only once every 75 – 76 years but this annual shower provides some compensation for those who may miss that once in a lifetime event.

The Orionid October showers start each year around the start of October till the end of November.

During this period, individual meteors created by Comet 1P/Halley, burn up in the Earth’s atmosphere at incredible speeds. During this year’s peak on the nights of October 21 and October 22, astronomers expect up to 25 shooting stars to light up the night every hour

The Orionids are one of the most notorious showers even though there are more active ones throughout the year. Orionids are known particularly for their fast and long glowing trails. Tonight, the shower will be most intense between midnight and early dawn on Monday morning.

Now let’s see how we watch see this spectacular event tonight, first thing you don’t need to have a space telescope, yes what you read is absolutely correct, these meteors can be seen with a naked eye.

As we all know, Hunting for meteors, like the rest of astronomy, is a waiting game, just make yourself comfortable the best thing you can do is lie back in a cosy position and try to take in the entire night sky at once.

They can be seen with the naked eye so there’s no need for binoculars or a telescope, though you will need to allow your eyes to adjust to the dark.

“The Orionids will appear to break out from a radiant point near the constellation Orion” this is what all we think, but there will be no need to find the constellation because the shooting stars will zip by too fast for you keep track.

Instead you just find a quiet, dark spot devoid of any sources of light.

Try to avoid urban areas, roads and street lamps which could under your viewing experience.

Just remember your eyes might take anywhere from 20 to 30 minutes to completely adjust to the dark.

The showers will continue at a reduced rate, so if the Moon obscures the peak, you may still be able to catch a few throughout the rest of October.

So, cheers to all stargazers, sky watchers, astronomy lovers and the explorers, don’t miss this out and don’t forget to remind your friends
