INDIAN DIASPORA FINE ART<br />

Elampillai<br />

Village of creative<br />

10<br />

handloom weavers<br />

Elampillai is a small village situated in the<br />

district of Salem in the state of Tamilnadu, India.<br />

It is around 25 KM from the Salem town. It is a<br />

thinly populated village.<br />

The people here are engaged in<br />

agriculture and handloom weaving.<br />

The average educational level is<br />

around 10th standard.<br />

Handloom Industry<br />

Elampillai is well known for<br />

handloom products in silk, cotton,<br />

polyester and silkhon (110 Dinear).<br />

The major community who is<br />

engaged in weaving is Vanniyar.<br />

It is from Elampillai, Silk Sarees<br />

are send to Tirupathi temple for<br />

decorating the deity during poojas.<br />

They are sending around 100<br />

Sarees per month through Cooptex,<br />

the co-operative society<br />

of handlooms in Tamilnadu. The<br />

specialty of Elampillai Saree is<br />

the Butta designs in the pallu and<br />

border.<br />

INDIAN DIASPORA FINE ART<br />

Specialty<br />

of Elampillai Saree<br />

Elampillai handlooms are<br />

well known for the durability<br />

of the colours used in the<br />

yarn. The quality of colour<br />

gives the durability. The<br />

count used in weaving gives<br />

the softness and hardness<br />

of the fabric. Count means<br />

the number of threads used<br />

in the length and breadth<br />

for weaving known as warp<br />

and weft respectively. In<br />

Elampillai the count used is<br />

80 by 80 for weaving. The<br />

width of the saree comes to<br />

51 inches. Each and every<br />

thread of the Elampillai<br />

handloom saree is hand<br />

woven. Each weaver works<br />

from home with all his / her<br />

family members helping<br />

in different steps of the<br />

process. In Elampillai cotton,<br />

silk, polyester and silkhon<br />

(110 Dinear) handloom<br />

sarees are weaved. They<br />

also weave silk fabric for<br />

shirts.<br />

Dyeing<br />

The process of<br />

manufacturing an Elampillai<br />

handloom Saree starts with<br />

dyeing the silk yarn. Dyeing<br />

is the coloring process of the<br />

yarn by dipping the yarn in<br />

the boiled color water in very<br />

high temperature, higher<br />

the temperature durability<br />

of colour will be more.<br />

Dyeing of the yarn is done<br />

making sure that the color<br />

is spread uniformly<br />

throughout the yarn<br />

and it does not<br />

affect the quality<br />

of the yarn.<br />

The coloring<br />

process is a very<br />

crucial step in<br />

getting a good<br />

colourful saree.<br />

The colours are<br />

applied as per the<br />

specifications of the<br />

designers and also<br />

some times as per the<br />

orders from customers who<br />

orders for a designer Saree.<br />

After coloring, the silk yarn is<br />

dried in shade. Drying yarn in<br />

sun can be harmful to yarn.<br />

Weaving<br />

After dyeing and drying the<br />

yarn it is converted to thread<br />

and is loaded as warp which<br />

is called pavvu and then it<br />

is loaded into the loom for<br />

actual weaving. It is also<br />

rolled over small sticks to<br />

use for weft. One pavvu<br />

will make 13 sarees. It will<br />

take 1 month to complete<br />

weaving of one pavvu.<br />

Elampillai handloom sarees<br />

are traditionally woven in the<br />

interlocked-weft technique.<br />

Designs<br />

The<br />

design<br />

required on the saree is<br />

initially drawn in a computer<br />

and then this is punched<br />

into a card and these cards<br />

are loaded in Jacard in the<br />

loom. Jacard is a box like<br />

structure which is fixed in the<br />

top of the loom. There will be<br />

needles in the Jacard which<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | MAY <strong>2016</strong>


will read the punched cards<br />

and control the weaving of<br />

weft.<br />

Decline of<br />

Handloom<br />

industry in<br />

Elampillai<br />

Due to the high<br />

cost of silk yarn<br />

now the weavers<br />

of Elampillai<br />

struggling to<br />

continue in the<br />

profession. Now there<br />

are only very few weavers<br />

weaving Elampillai silk<br />

handloom products. Once<br />

famous Elampillai Handloom<br />

products are now becoming<br />

extinct due to the high cost<br />

of silk yarn and low wages<br />

prevailing in the industry.<br />

Previously Elampillai was<br />

full of talented weavers who<br />

used to do magic in the<br />

looms to produce the best<br />

handloom products. There<br />

is an emergency situation<br />

to take necessary action<br />

to protect the traditional<br />

Elampillai handloom<br />

products.<br />

Voice of handloom<br />

weaver’s<br />

The weavers of Elampillai<br />

blame the mushrooming<br />

power looms for the high cost<br />

of silk yarn. The weavers<br />

demand a responsible role<br />

by the government to protect<br />

the handloom industry<br />

by providing subsidy for<br />

yarn and a rehabilitation<br />

package for the weavers<br />

who are suffering due to<br />

high cost of yarn and low<br />

wages prevailing in the<br />

industry. They hope that if<br />

the government takes the<br />

responsibility to support the<br />

handloom industry by way of<br />

showcasing and marketing<br />

the handloom products, the<br />

industry can survive or else<br />

the present situation has<br />

started the end of handloom<br />

industry in Elampillai. The<br />

new generation is not<br />

interested in the profession<br />

Elampillai<br />

handlooms are<br />

well known for<br />

the durability<br />

of the colours<br />

used in the yarn.<br />

The quality of<br />

colour gives the<br />

durability. The<br />

count used in<br />

weaving gives<br />

the softness and<br />

hardness of the<br />

fabric.<br />

due to the hard labour and<br />

long hours to bring out the<br />

finished product, the returns<br />

are also not lucrative to make<br />

them stay in the profession.<br />

Due to the non availability<br />

of weavers the handloom<br />

industry is fastly shifting to<br />

power looms.<br />

INDIAN DIASPORA TRADITION<br />

BAZIGAR<br />

with ethnical identity<br />

14<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | MAY <strong>2016</strong>


Bazigars are a nomad gipsy-folk of<br />

India and Pakistan who are found<br />

throughout North India. They live a<br />

different life from the surrounding<br />

Hindu population and still preserve<br />

the ethnical identity.<br />

T<br />

They mostly make their<br />

livings as jugglers, makers,<br />

basket-weavers and<br />

fortune-tellers and in true<br />

European gipsy fashion<br />

each clan has its king. They<br />

are found in the states of<br />

Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan<br />

and Uttar Pradesh.<br />

The Bazigar are further subdivided<br />

into five sub-groups,<br />

the Jogi, Badtia (vertiya),<br />

Mushal (muchhals),<br />

Dharamsot and Namsout.<br />

The first four sub-divisions<br />

cannot intermarry, but<br />

Namsout only marry within<br />

the clan. The Bazigar were<br />

either Hindu or Muslim, but<br />

with the departure of their<br />

Muslim patrons, the Bazigar<br />

have embraced Sikhism.<br />

They have also abandoned<br />

their traditional dialect<br />

Bazigar boli for standard<br />

Punjabi.<br />

The name Bazigar is<br />

derived from the Urdu<br />

word bazi, which means an<br />

acrobat. They claims to be<br />

Chauhan Rajputs, who took<br />

the occupation of acrobatics<br />

to escape the persecution<br />

and attempts of forcefull<br />

convertion to Islam during<br />

the period of the Mughal<br />

Emperor Aurangzeb. They<br />

have now been granted<br />

Scheduled Caste status<br />

in Haryana, Punjab and<br />

Uttar Pradesh. The Bazigar<br />

speak their own dialect,<br />

known as bazigar boli,<br />

while speaking in Hindi with<br />

outsiders.<br />

History of<br />

Centuries<br />

Ahluwalia<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | MAY <strong>2016</strong>


Ahluwalia is derived from a place name<br />

Ahlu + -walia, a Panjabi adjectival suffix.<br />

According to Ibbetson (1916), Ahlu is the<br />

name of a village near Lahore which was<br />

founded by Sada Singh Kalal, a man of the<br />

Kalal community.<br />

The Ahluwalia or Ahluwale<br />

Caste are a Punjabi community<br />

in the Punjab region of<br />

northwestern India.<br />

There are many stories<br />

regarding the Ahluwalia<br />

community. The identity of<br />

Ahluwalia caste is that of ‘Kalal’.<br />

Kalal is a caste of professional<br />

distillers and wine-sellers.<br />

During 18th century , one of<br />

the member of Kalal caste<br />

by the name of Jassa Kalal<br />

converted to Sikhism and rose to<br />

prominence . His descendants<br />

started calling themselves<br />

‘Ahluwalia’ because Jassa Kalal<br />

was from the village ‘Ahlo’.<br />

Ahluwalia is a Sikh clan from<br />

India, that originated from a misl<br />

of the same name; the name<br />

Ahluwalia is derived from Ahlu,<br />

the ancestral village of the misl<br />

leaders. The Ahluwalia misl was<br />

one of the 12 major Sikh misls,<br />

and held land to the north of<br />

Sutlej river.<br />

Sultan ul Quam Nawab Jassa<br />

Singh Ahluwalia was born at the<br />

village of Ahlu, in Lahore district<br />

of Punjab, (Majha region), in<br />

the year 1718. Ahlu village was<br />

established by his ancestor,<br />

Sadda singh, a disciple of the<br />

sixth Sikh Guru, Guru Har<br />

Gobind. His forefathers were<br />

Kalals (wine merchants) and<br />

hence, he is also referred to as<br />

“Jassa Singh Kalal”.<br />

Jassa Singh, is said to have<br />

been the most powerful and<br />

influential chief that the Sikhs<br />

ever had till the rise of Ranjit<br />

Singh. The Ahluwalias ruled<br />

Kapurthala, a district in the<br />

Panjab which was once a small<br />

princely state.<br />

Sri Krishna<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | MAY <strong>2016</strong>


Naughty little Krishna and Balarama started<br />

moving around. Playfully, they crawled together on<br />

their knees and arms. The sound of their ankle bells<br />

were delightful. These children used to mistake women<br />

passers-by for their mother and crawl<br />

behind them.<br />

The women used to enjoy<br />

the sight of the charming<br />

crawlers and exclaim,<br />

“Oh, see how Krishna and<br />

Balarama are crawling!”<br />

In their curiosity, the tiny<br />

tots would sometimes<br />

catch the ends of the tails<br />

of the calves. The calves,<br />

frightened by the touch<br />

would begin to flee here and<br />

there. The little ones would<br />

hold tightly to them, as if they<br />

are afraid. The calves, still<br />

more frightened, would run<br />

all the more. The ladies used<br />

to rescue the children and<br />

would laugh and enjoy the<br />

fun.<br />

Days passed by merrily in<br />

Gokula. Rama and Krishna<br />

were growing up. They<br />

began to run on their feet.<br />

Joining with other boys the<br />

two kids began their pranks.<br />

Their mischief delighted the<br />

hearts of the Gopis. Yasoda<br />

had to often listen to the<br />

complaints about her son’s<br />

mischief in the houses of the<br />

Gopis.<br />

One of them would tell her,<br />

“Yesterday Krishna came<br />

to my house early in the<br />

morning. I was busy getting<br />

ready to milk the cows. I<br />

went to the cowshed and<br />

what did I find? Krishna had<br />

long back untied the calf<br />

which had drunk all the milk.<br />

When I turned back, I saw<br />

him standing at a distance<br />

with a mischievous look on<br />

his face. I tried to chase him,<br />

but he took to his heels and<br />

disappeared into another<br />

house.”<br />

STORY FOR KIDS<br />

26<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | MAY <strong>2016</strong>


I was careful and Krishna could<br />

not find anything to eat in my home.<br />

So he pinched my sleeping child.<br />

It began to cry. Laughing merrily<br />

Krishna ran away.<br />

Another Gopi would tell her<br />

complaint, “Your son is an<br />

expert thief! He devises<br />

a hundred ways to steal<br />

butter and curds from my<br />

house. He eats up some of<br />

it and the rest he gives to<br />

the monkeys which eagerly<br />

wait on the trees. If he<br />

cannot reach the pots which<br />

are kept high, he throws<br />

stones and breaks the pots.<br />

He stands below with his<br />

friends, mouths wide open.<br />

They drink the curd falling<br />

from the pot.”<br />

Another Gopi would say,<br />

“I was careful and Krishna<br />

could not find anything to eat<br />

in my home. So he pinched<br />

my sleeping child. It began to<br />

cry. Laughing merrily Krishna<br />

ran away.”<br />

Yet another complained, “I<br />

kept the milk and curd high<br />

on a swing hanging from<br />

the ceiling. Krishna and<br />

Balarama came there, but<br />

could not reach it. They piled<br />

up various planks. Above<br />

them they placed the tripod<br />

I use for churning the butter.<br />

On that Balarama climbed.<br />

Still they could not reach.<br />

Then Krishna climbed on<br />

the back of Balarama. All<br />

the butter was swallowed.<br />

Just then I entered the room<br />

and caught hold of Krishna.<br />

But he was undaunted. And<br />

what a look he had! Silently<br />

he said as it were, ‘I am the<br />

owner of this house and you<br />

are the thief.’<br />

“I had just washed my<br />

house” said another,<br />

‘ ‘Krishna came and<br />

demanded butter. I said, ‘I<br />

have nothing to give’. Then<br />

in retaliation, when I was<br />

busy with the household<br />

work, he brought all sorts<br />

of mud from outside, threw<br />

it all into the house and ran<br />

away”.<br />

Each Gopi narrated their<br />

own tale of woe. But all the<br />

while none was angry with<br />

Krishna Rather they all<br />

enjoyed his pranks. Krishna<br />

was all the while listening<br />

to the tales about Himself<br />

standing in a corner with a<br />

mischievous look.<br />

Yasoda turned towards him<br />

with angry eyes. At this,<br />

tears filled his eyes. Who<br />

could bear to see Krishna in<br />

tears? Mother Yasoda took<br />

him on her lap at once. The<br />

beautiful face of Krishna, his<br />

innocent eyes and his sweet<br />

smile always haunted the<br />

minds of the Gopis.<br />

HEALTHY LIVING<br />

Healthy living makes you<br />

a happier person<br />

Finding happiness in your everyday<br />

life can make a positive impact on your<br />

overall health. Leading a healthy lifestyle<br />

<strong>may</strong> not necessarily be following an<br />

eating and exercise plan.<br />

28<br />

Happiness has a positive<br />

effect in lowering cortisol<br />

levels, the stress hormone<br />

that is related to health<br />

conditions like type 2<br />

diabetes, hypertension, and<br />

autoimmune diseases.<br />

Gabrielle Bernstein, in her<br />

newest New York Times<br />

best-seller, Miracles Now,<br />

writes that meditation helps<br />

“because it gives you time<br />

to reflect, bring inner peace,<br />

and make a true assessment<br />

of where you are in your life<br />

and where you can go.”<br />

A study from JAMA Internal<br />

Medicine reveals that<br />

meditation can help reduce<br />

stress and ease symptoms<br />

of anxiety and depression,<br />

which are related to myriad<br />

health conditions.<br />

How to make your day<br />

happier everyday<br />

Make your first thought<br />

of the day a happy one.<br />

“When we look at ourselves<br />

in the mirror everyday<br />

morning and think of all the<br />

things we want to change,<br />

that’s a choice we make,”<br />

says Bernstein. “Make<br />

the commitment to think<br />

differently about yourself<br />

and make happiness the first<br />

thing of the day.”<br />

Snap out of a negative<br />

mindset. Plagued by<br />

undesirable or destructive<br />

thoughts about yourself or<br />

others can make your day<br />

uninteresting. Take out these<br />

feelings out of your mind,<br />

which can carry on your day<br />

happily.<br />

Unleash your inner child.<br />

When we become more<br />

childlike, we grow our<br />

capacity for curiosity and<br />

creativity. “Open up to<br />

silliness and have more fun.<br />

That childlike energy brings<br />

us a much more positive<br />

perspective and releases<br />

tension,” Bernstein says.<br />

Sleep peacefully. Sleep is<br />

essential to optimal health.<br />

It is a spiritual practice that<br />

benefits us mentally and<br />

emotionally. To help you<br />

get a restful night of sleep,<br />

Bernstein recommends<br />

using this simple Kundalini<br />

breathing technique. Sit up<br />

straight on your bed and<br />

breathe in using a U breath<br />

(Pucker your mouth as if<br />

you were holding a quarter<br />

between your lips.). Breathe<br />

in and exhale through your<br />

nose. Continue this cycle of<br />

breath for one minute.<br />

division. The Governor’s<br />

report is silent on this. This is<br />

very crucial,” said the bench.<br />

“Why is it the concern of the<br />

Rule? This is irrelevant. And<br />

I must say that I’m shocked,”<br />

said the bench.<br />

Rafale Combat<br />

Aircraft Deal<br />

in the final stage<br />

42<br />

Defence minister Manohar Parrikar has said<br />

that the Rafale aircraft deal with France it is not<br />

complete as yet, but at an “advanced stage” and<br />

the intention is to “close it quite soon”.<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | MAY <strong>2016</strong>


The government “saved” public<br />

money and the deal has resulted in a<br />

gain of “technological knowledge”<br />

and “strengthening the air power to<br />

defend the border”, it had said.<br />

“I can only tell you this<br />

much that while the deal is<br />

in quite an advanced stage,<br />

quite soon, I still can’t say<br />

that negotiations are totally<br />

cleared until we sign the<br />

deal or at least the deal is<br />

forwarded to the Cabinet for<br />

approval,” Parrikar said.<br />

as per the earlier tender,<br />

comes to around Rs 65,000<br />

crore. India has been<br />

bargaining for a price that<br />

is less than 8 billion Euro<br />

combat roles such as air<br />

aerial reconnaissance,<br />

ground support, in-depth<br />

strike, anti-ship strike and<br />

Six renowned aircraft<br />

manufacturers competed<br />

to bag the contract of 126<br />

fighter jets, which was<br />

touted to be the largest-ever<br />

defence procurement deal<br />

of India. The Initial bidders<br />

were Lockheed Martin’s<br />

F-16s, Boeing’s F/A-18s,<br />

Eurofighter Typhoon,<br />

Russia’s MiG-35, Sweden’s<br />

Saab’s Gripen and Rafale.<br />

All aircrafts were tested by<br />

the IAF and after careful<br />

analysis on the bids, two<br />

of them — Eurofighter and<br />

Rafale — were shortlisted.<br />

Dassault bagged the<br />

contract to provide 126<br />

fighter jets, as it was the<br />

lowest bidder and the aircraft<br />

were said to be easy to<br />

maintain.<br />

FREEDOM FIGHTER<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | MAY <strong>2016</strong>


Anant<br />

Laxman Kanhere<br />

Brave revolutionary and<br />

freedom fighter<br />

Anant Laxman Kanhere was born in 1891 at<br />

Bramhanwadi, Aayani (Anjani), a small village<br />

in Khed Taluka, Ratnagiri district. He had two<br />

brothers and two sisters. He completed his<br />

primary education in Nizamabad (which was then<br />

also called as Indur), and his English education<br />

took place in Aurangabad.<br />

Anantrao used to stay with his<br />

friend Gangaram Marwadi, who<br />

was a businessman, in connection<br />

with his studies. Ganagram had<br />

taken the oath of ‘Abhinav Bharat’.<br />

Gangaram first put Anantrao to<br />

the test before giving him the oath<br />

of patriotism. Gopalrao Dharap<br />

was a member of Abhinav Bharat<br />

in Nashik. Anantrao was enraged<br />

when he learnt that Babarao<br />

Savarkar was shackled and<br />

paraded in public due to tyrannical<br />

Jackson. He expressed his wish to<br />

Gopalrao to eliminate Jackson.<br />

Jackson, the district collector<br />

of Nashik tried his best to see<br />

that people were scared of the<br />

British and they kept away from<br />

any efforts towards acquiring<br />

independence. A British officer<br />

named William had kicked to<br />

death an innocent farmer; but<br />

"<br />

Jackson protected him. He<br />

punished all the youth who<br />

sang ‘Vande Mataram’. He<br />

proved advocate Khare to<br />

be mad for providing legal<br />

aid to the patriots and sent<br />

him to jail in Dharwad. He<br />

drove away a scholar, Tambe<br />

Shastri from Nashik who<br />

used to create awareness<br />

amongst the youth about<br />

independence through<br />

stories from the ‘Puranas’.<br />

He got Babarao Savarkar<br />

arrested for publishing<br />

patriotic songs and paraded<br />

him in shackles. Babarao<br />

was transported from Nashik.<br />

The hypocritical and cruel<br />

Jackson became a thorn in<br />

the side of revolutionaries.<br />

On 19th September 1909,<br />

Anantrao went to Nashik<br />

from Aurangabad by train.<br />

He was given his own gun by<br />

Vinayakrao Deshpande. He<br />

went to the district collector’s<br />

office and observed Jackson.<br />

Jackson was promoted from<br />

the post of district collector<br />

and was transferred from<br />

Nashik. Programs were being<br />

arranged to bid him farewell.<br />

I carried out this auspicious act to take<br />

revenge for the oppression of Hindu people by<br />

the British. I punished the oppressor Jackson<br />

with death.<br />

"<br />

The revolutionaries thought<br />

that it would become difficult<br />

to kill Jackson once he was<br />

transferred from Nashik and<br />

therefore, they decided to kill<br />

him soon.<br />

Anna Karve was in Nashik<br />

at that time. He made a<br />

plan to kill Jackson. On 29th<br />

December 1909, a Marathi<br />

drama titled ‘Sharda’ was<br />

staged by Kirloskar Theaters<br />

in honour of Jackson and<br />

in the interval of this play,<br />

there was going to be<br />

a felicitation of Jackson<br />

followed by a few speeches.<br />

Anna Karve finalized this<br />

day to kill Jackson. He gave<br />

two Browning pistols, sent<br />

by Swa. Savarkar from<br />

London, to Anantrao. It was<br />

decided that after firing at<br />

Jackson, he should shoot<br />

himself or eat a poisonous<br />

sweet. In case Anantrao<br />

failed to kill Jackson, Anna<br />

Karve would do the job and<br />

if even he failed, Vinayakrao<br />

Deshpande would fire at<br />

Jackson.<br />

As Jackson was entering the<br />

theatre hall, Anantrao swiftly<br />

took out his revolver and shot<br />

at Jackson from behind but<br />

the bullet missed the target<br />

and flew past Jackson’s<br />

hand; then immediately,<br />

Anantrao came forward and<br />

shot 4 times at Jackson from<br />

thefront. Bleeding, Jackson<br />

collapsed on the floor. He<br />

told Todarmal and Khopkar,<br />

police officers, “I carried out<br />

this auspicious act to take<br />

revenge for the oppression of<br />

Hindu people by the British.<br />

I punished the oppressor<br />

Jackson with death. I do not<br />

want to run away.”<br />

As per the verdict, Anant<br />

Kanhere, Anna Karve and<br />

Vinayak Deshpande were<br />

sentenced to death. On<br />

19th April 1910, these 3<br />

young men were sent to the<br />

gallows at 7.00 a.m. in Thane<br />

jail; they looked very calm<br />

and brave. At the age of 18,<br />

Anant Kanhere sacrificed<br />

his life for the freedom of our<br />

country.<br />

LIFE STYLE<br />

56<br />

Kick out bad habits,<br />

cultivate good habits<br />

for A Healthy<br />

life style<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | MAY <strong>2016</strong>


Everybody is interested in having a healthy life style. But<br />

unfortunately, it is not becoming possible due to the bad<br />

habits one has. It is necessary to kick out the bad habits<br />

and practise good habits. Bad habits like smoking, excessive<br />

alcoholic consumption, eating junk foods, etc will have a<br />

great impact on anybody’s health.<br />

Excuses of time constraint is not an<br />

option for eating junk foods. Excuse<br />

of pressure and stress is not an option<br />

for smoking or excessive alcoholic<br />

consumption. You have to quit these<br />

unhealthy habits ASAP. Bring in good<br />

habits, that can make your life more<br />

relaxing. Go natural for a healthy life.<br />

Here are some of the healthy habits you<br />

love to cultivate for a healthy life style.<br />

Sleep for atleast seven<br />

and eight hours.<br />

Long-term research studies reveals<br />

that people who get significantly less<br />

sleep than seven hours a night <strong>may</strong> die<br />

younger. Dr. Timothy Morgenthaler,<br />

president of the American Academy of<br />

Sleep Medicine, says seven to eight<br />

hours is the sweet spot.<br />

Be in tandom with nature<br />

More and more researches reveal that,<br />

just how important it is for people to be<br />

one with nature. People who live close<br />

to a good amount of green space are<br />

healthier than those who live farther<br />

away from it.<br />

Spending more time with<br />

your loved ones can make<br />

you relaxed and happy<br />

Researches reveal that people who<br />

have strong “social networks” (loving<br />

friends and family members) reap many<br />

health benefits, but people without<br />

strong social bonds tend to fare much<br />

worse.<br />

Cook and eat your food at<br />

home<br />

A study of Cambridge University has<br />

found that elderly Taiwanese people<br />

who cooked most of their meals lived<br />

longer than those who did not prepare<br />

the majority of their food at home.<br />

Cooking your own food gives you much<br />

greater control of what goes in it. You<br />

can make healthy ingredient swaps as<br />

per your taste.<br />

Fruits and veggies are<br />

always the best bet<br />

A huge study from Harvard reveals<br />

that people who eat a lot of fruits and<br />

veggies happen to have lower rates<br />

of cardiovascular disease. Especially,<br />

if you’re talking green, leafy veggies,<br />

cruciferous veggies, and citrus fruits.<br />

Communication allows you and your partner to<br />

have a deep mutual understanding and allows<br />

to connect. In a healthy relationship with good<br />

communication, both partners have to:-<br />

1. Treat each other with<br />

respect<br />

2. Speak openly to one<br />

another about thoughts<br />

and feelings<br />

life, finances, family<br />

and friends, personal<br />

space and time. In a<br />

healthy relationship<br />

with boundaries, both<br />

partners should:-<br />

3. Feel heard when<br />

expressing feelings<br />

4. Listen to each other<br />

and compromise<br />

5. Do not criticize each<br />

other<br />

6. Feel supported to do<br />

the things they like<br />

8. Allow each other to<br />

spend time with friends<br />

and family<br />

9. Do not abuse<br />

technology to check on<br />

a partner<br />

10. Trust each other and<br />

not require their partner<br />

to “check in”<br />

7. Celebrate each<br />

other’s accomplishments<br />

and successes<br />

11. Do not pressure the<br />

other to do things that<br />

they don’t want to do<br />

Both person should<br />

express to their partner,<br />

what they are and are<br />

not comfortable with,<br />

when it comes to sex<br />

12. Do not constantly<br />

accuse the other of<br />

Successful<br />

Romance makes<br />

Life Beautiful<br />

Romance is an interesting word. It conjures<br />

up all kinds of thoughts for both men and<br />

women. Desire is a key part of romance.<br />

Romance is really the act of wooing one<br />

another.<br />

MAY <strong>2016</strong> | WWW.WISHESH.COM


LOVE & ROMANCE<br />

It’s a longing to be with<br />

someone you love and acting<br />

in such a way that makes that<br />

person’s desire to be with<br />

you.<br />

For many couples, romance is<br />

easy before marriage, when<br />

there were no kids to distract<br />

, no pressures of finances to<br />

fight over, no annoying habits<br />

to live with. After marriage,<br />

these things start to eat away<br />

your longing to be with your<br />

spouse.<br />

Simple tips can light up your<br />

romance in a better way with<br />

love and lust.<br />

64<br />

Communicate. As simple<br />

as it seems, you need to<br />

talk to each other. Share<br />

your thoughts, expose your<br />

feelings instead of keeping<br />

them to yourself. If you do<br />

this regularly, you will start<br />

to see your spouse with<br />

depth and color. You’ll begin<br />

to appreciate his or her<br />

ambitions and desires.<br />

Keep short accounts and<br />

extend forgiveness regularly.<br />

Nothing will ruin a desire to be<br />

with your spouse faster than<br />

resentment and bitterness.<br />

It also ruins your spouse’s<br />

desire to be with you. As you<br />

let go of harboured hurts,<br />

you will be free to love your<br />

spouse, no matter how many<br />

mistakes he or she has made.<br />

As a result your mate will love<br />

Never stop<br />

saying, “I love<br />

you.” The words<br />

“I love you”<br />

never grow<br />

Bhubaneswar is the capital city of the state of Orissa<br />

or Odhisha, India. Bhubaneswar is situated in the<br />

eastern coastal plains of Orissa and south-west<br />

of the Mahanadi River at an altitude of 45 meters<br />

above sea level. The modern city of Bhubaneswar<br />

was designed by the German architect Otto<br />

Konigsberg in 1946.<br />

History<br />

The city has a long history<br />

of over 2000 years starting<br />

with Chedi dynasty (around<br />

2nd century BC) that had<br />

Sisupalgarh near present-day<br />

Bhubaneswar as their capital.<br />

Historically Bhubaneswar<br />

has been known by different<br />

names such as Toshali,<br />

Kalinga Nagari, Nagar Kalinga,<br />

Ekamra Kanan, Ekamra<br />

Kshetra and Mandira Malini<br />

Nagari otherwise known as the<br />

temple city of India.<br />

Together with Puri, Konark<br />

and Bhubaneswar forms<br />

the ‘Swarna Tribhuja’ (the<br />

‘Golden Triangle’), one of<br />

the most visited destinations<br />

in East India. It has a proud<br />

possession of magnificent<br />

sculptures and architectural<br />

heritage, coupled with the<br />

sanctity as Ekamra Kshetra,<br />

makes it one of the great<br />

Hindu religious centres of<br />

Orissa since early medieval<br />

days.<br />

Lingaraj Temple<br />

The 10th or 11th century<br />

Lingaraj temple of<br />

Bhubaneswar has been<br />

described as “the truest fusion<br />

of dream and reality”. It is<br />

dedicated to Lord Shiva. The<br />

Lingaraj temple has been<br />

rated as one of the finest<br />

examples of Hindu temples<br />

in India by Ferguson, the<br />

noted art critic and historian.<br />

The surface of the 55 m-high<br />

Lingaraj temple is covered<br />

with carvings. Tradition among<br />

Hindus exist, that one should<br />

visit the Lingaraj Temple<br />

before visiting the Jagannath<br />

temple at Puri.<br />

and fully developed stage. It<br />

described as “the truest<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | MAY <strong>2016</strong>


as ‘time quintessence<br />

of Orissan architecture’.<br />

Sanskrit texts hold that<br />

there was a stone temple<br />

here as early as the seventh<br />

century AD, and fragments<br />

of this earlier structure do<br />

seem to appear in the extant<br />

building.<br />

The deul (tower) of the<br />

Lingaraj temple reaches<br />

a height of just over 180<br />

feet (55 meters). It is<br />

completely curvilinear, and<br />

Mukteswar<br />

Temple<br />

the extraordinary soaring tower<br />

can be seen to incorporate<br />

miniature replicas of itself, in<br />

turrets inserted on the ribs<br />

of the spire. In addition to<br />

the deul and the Jagmohana<br />

(porch), the Lingaraj temple<br />

adds two other structures:<br />

Natyamandira - hall of<br />

dance, which is undoubtedly<br />

associated with the prominent<br />

devadasi system and<br />

Bhogmandap - hall of offering.<br />

By the time the Lingaraj<br />

temple was constructed, the<br />

Jagannath cult had become<br />

predominant throughout<br />

Orissa. This has reflected in<br />

the fact that the temple deity<br />

here, the Svayambhu linga,<br />

is not, as in all other cases,<br />

strictly a Shiva linga. It is<br />

considered to be a ‘Hari-Hara’<br />

linga, that is, half Lord Shiva<br />

and half Lord Vishnu. There<br />

are 150 subsidiary shrines<br />

within the immense Lingaraj<br />

temple complex.<br />

Mukteswar Temple<br />

The small and elegant<br />

Mukteswar temple (AD 950)<br />

is often referred to as the<br />

“miniature gem of Orissan<br />

architecture”. In addition to its<br />

beauty, the Mukteswar temple<br />

has importance as a transition<br />

point between the early and<br />

later phases of the Kalinga<br />

School of temple architecture.<br />

Many elements of the old with<br />

new designs and conceptions<br />

are successfully combined.<br />

Many of the innovations took<br />

root and became essential<br />

features of all later temples.<br />

Mukteswar temple is known<br />

as the “harbinger of the new<br />

culture”.<br />

The relationship with older<br />

structures can be immediately<br />

seen in the small size of<br />

the temple - 35 feet (11<br />

meters) high at the pinnacle<br />

of the tower. The latticed<br />

windows of the ‘Jagmohana’<br />

(porch) and the octagonal<br />

compound wall seems to<br />

have been patterned on an<br />

earlier structure which now<br />

exists only in fragmentary<br />

form. Muktesvara temple’s<br />

stunningly beautiful gateway<br />

was strongly based on the<br />

earlier architecture. The<br />

‘Torana’ (arched gateway)<br />

of the Mukteswar temple<br />

deserves special attention.<br />

It’s extraordinarily beautiful<br />

sculpture includes elaborate<br />

scrolls, graceful female<br />

figures, monkeys, peacocks,<br />

and a wealth of delicate and<br />

lovely decorative detail.<br />

The Jagmohana building here<br />

has become a structure in<br />

its own right, and is seen as<br />

the later shape of a terraced<br />

pyramid (although the internal<br />

shape has not become a real<br />

square). Over the doorway<br />

to the inner sanctum, the<br />

ninth planet of the Indian<br />

astrology (Ketu, identified by<br />

the canopied, three hooded<br />

snake) can be seen.<br />

On the eastern side of the<br />

temple compound is a sacred<br />

tank, and in the south west<br />

corner is a well which is said<br />

to cure fertility problems.<br />

Several small shrines can be<br />

seen within the compound,<br />

many with lingam inside.<br />

Parsurameswar<br />

Temple<br />

The Parsurameswar temple<br />

(650 AD) is the earliest<br />

temple, and is based on<br />

style, as well as on the eight<br />

planets which appear over<br />

the door to the inner sanctum.<br />

In later temples, there are<br />

nine. This small temple<br />

shows the early stages of<br />

development of the two main<br />

Orissan temple components:<br />

the beehive-shaped tower<br />

(generally referred to as the<br />

deul) and the porch in front<br />

of the tower (generally called<br />

the Jagmohana). The tower<br />

is built in successive, inwardtapering<br />

stories, marked<br />

by loti form corner pieces.<br />

Light enters the interior<br />

through skylights, doors, and<br />

pierced latticed windows. The<br />

rectangular niches running<br />

around the base of the porch<br />

contain images of diverse<br />

deities. Although this was a<br />

Siva temple, it is interesting<br />

to note that images of Vishnu,<br />

as well as the Vedic nature<br />

deities of Indra, Surya and<br />

Yama appear, in addition<br />

to a group of seven mother<br />

Goddesses. On the southern<br />

wall is a fine image of<br />

Karttikeya (one of the sons of<br />

Siva) riding on a peacock, his<br />

traditional mount.<br />

Rajarani temple<br />

The Rajarani temple, dating<br />

back to the eleventh century,<br />

is set in open paddy fields,<br />

and the entire structure exudes<br />

grace and elegance. The<br />

name Rajarani is related to the<br />

lovely red-and- gold sandstone<br />

used in its construction, a<br />

stone which is locally known<br />

as Rajarania. The deul (tower),<br />

is spectacularly ornate, and<br />

is famous for the aesthetic<br />

concept of miniature temple<br />

spires clustered around the<br />

main tower. The sculptural<br />

images of the temple are<br />

elegant and lively, especially<br />

the beautiful female figures<br />

which can be seen in amorous<br />

dalliance, as well as engaged<br />

in such activities as holding<br />

children, looking in mirrors,<br />

and playing with pet birds. On<br />

the lower register of the deul,<br />

on the corner projections, are<br />

found the famous ‘Guardians<br />

of the Eight Directions’,<br />

watching over and radiating<br />

the temple’s power to the eight<br />

cardinal points. Beginning<br />

from the left of the entrance<br />

to the deul and proceeding<br />

in a clockwise direction, they<br />

are: Indra (east, chief of the<br />

33 Vedic nature deities); Agni<br />

(south-east, Vedic God of<br />

fire); Yama (south, God of<br />

death); Nirriti (south-west,<br />

deity related to suffering);<br />

Varuna (west, a Vedic deity of<br />

the ocean); Vayu (north-west,<br />

wind God); Kubera (north, lord<br />

of wealth, shown here with a<br />

wish-fulfilling tree); and Ishana<br />

(north-east, a form of Shiva).<br />

Vaital Temple<br />

The Vaital Temple (AD 800)<br />

represents the Khakhara order<br />

(a subdivision of the Kalinga<br />

School of architecture)<br />

which was used for shrines<br />

devoted to tantric cults.<br />

The deul (tower) of the<br />

temple has the most striking<br />

difference. It is rectangular<br />

in shape, positioned at a<br />

right angle to the Jagmohana<br />

(porch). A brief look at the<br />

Vaital Temple will show an<br />

extremely accomplished<br />

style of sculptural decoration.<br />

The temple was dedicated<br />

to Tantric worship, which<br />

combined elements from<br />

certain sects of both<br />

Buddhism and Hinduism,<br />

centered on the worship<br />

of Shakti, the female<br />

life force. It developed<br />

elaborate rituals involving<br />

magic spells, secret rituals<br />

and sacrificial offerings.<br />

The interior of the Vaital<br />

Temple’s inner sanctum is<br />

almost completely dark, in<br />

keeping with the esoteric<br />

rites believed to have been<br />

performed there. The temple<br />

deity is of Chamundi (tantric<br />

form of the Hindu goddess<br />

Durga) is dimly visible<br />

behind the grille, portrayed<br />

with a garland of skulls<br />

around her neck, seated on<br />

a corpse, flanked by an owl<br />

and a jackal. Her emaciated<br />

body, sunken eyes, and<br />

shrunken belly are quite<br />

remarkable. On the outer,<br />

eastern face of the tower<br />

there is an extremely fine<br />

image of the sun god, Surya,<br />

with a sensitive and beautiful<br />

face. He is flanked by Usha<br />

and Pratyusha, twin sisters<br />

was carved into cave like<br />

chambers in the face of the<br />

hill. These caves, with artistic<br />

carvings date back to the 2nd<br />

century BC. The magnificent<br />

artistic carvings are the Rani<br />

Gumpha (Queen’s Cave) and<br />

the Hathi Gumpha (Elephant<br />

Cave) are of special attention.<br />

The Hathi Gumpha has<br />

carved chronicles of King<br />

Kharavela’s reign of 1st - 2nd<br />

century BC. Khandagiri, with<br />

its 15 caves on the left and<br />

Udayagiri on the right.<br />

The rocks of the Khandagiri<br />

and Udayagiri hills were<br />

carved and tunneled, to<br />

create this multi-storied<br />

ancient apartment residence<br />

for Jain monks. They<br />

were the work of the first<br />

known Orissan ruler, King<br />

Kharavela, and probably<br />

begun in the first century BC.<br />

Kharavela was a king of the<br />

Mahameghavahana dynasty,<br />

who is known for expansion<br />

of the Kalinga Empire and<br />

his installation of public<br />

improvements, such as canal<br />

systems. His queen was<br />

evidently quite a patron of the<br />

arts, and probably had much<br />

to do with the impressive<br />

sculptural decoration of the<br />

caves.<br />

The 18 caves of Udayagiri<br />

include the famous Hathi<br />

Gumpha (‘Elephant Cave’)<br />

with its famous inscription of<br />

Kharavela from which we can<br />

learn much about Kharavela’s<br />

military exploits, gated towers<br />

of his royal city, bathing and<br />

drinking tanks, the scenes<br />

of formally organized music<br />

and dance performances,<br />

as well as sporting and<br />

social events. The famous<br />

Rani Gumpha (‘Queen’s<br />

Cave’), also on Udayagiri,<br />

has upper and lower stories,<br />

a spacious courtyard, and<br />

elaborate sculptural friezes.<br />

The carvings show popular<br />

legends, historical scenes, and<br />

religious functions, as well as<br />

many dancers. The Ganesh<br />

Gumpha, which is reached<br />

by a walkway from the lower<br />

storey of the Rani Gumpha,<br />

is isolated, and perhaps for<br />

this reason, better preserved.<br />

Its two dwelling-spaces with<br />

verandah in front are reached<br />

by a short staircase from the<br />

courtyard.<br />

All of the caves are small,<br />

and follow the natural<br />

configurations of the ‘living<br />

rock’. The sculpture throughout<br />

exhibits a strong, lively folk<br />

element, which has been<br />

executed with a sure and<br />

confident hand. The spaces<br />

are filled with animal, human,<br />

and divine personages and<br />

decorative details, showing the<br />

love of the Orissan artist for<br />

richly elaborated scenes.<br />

In Khandagiri there is a<br />

magnificent Jain temple which<br />

can be seen from Udayagiri.<br />

Asoka, the terrible, was<br />

transformed into Asoka,<br />

the compassionate. Asoka<br />

erected two main edicts in<br />

Kalinga, one in Dhauli and<br />

the other in Jayagarh. The<br />

principles of Asoka which<br />

reflects his compassion were<br />

inscribed on all the other<br />

edicts in his empire except<br />

Kalinga. In the Kalinga edicts<br />

he warned the people of<br />

Kalinga not to revolt and that<br />

he would take appropriate<br />

action if they did. This is in<br />

sharp contrast to all of his<br />

other edicts and proof of<br />

his political acumen. The<br />

edicts are remarkably well<br />

preserved, despite the fact<br />

Chousathi Yogini<br />

Temple<br />

On the outskirts of<br />

Bhubaneswar, 15 km southeast<br />

of the city at Hirapur<br />

is a small, circular temple,<br />

the Yogini Temple, dating to<br />

the early ninth century. It is<br />

hypaethral (open to the sky),<br />

and belongs to a genre of<br />

architecture completely apart<br />

from the major Orissan school.<br />

Although it seems that temples<br />

of this type existed throughout<br />

India at one time, today only<br />

four remains. Two of them<br />

are in Orissa; the shrine at<br />

Hirapur, and one in the far<br />

western reaches of the state,<br />

at Ranipur-Jharial.<br />

The temple’s circular wall,<br />

which is barely 2 metre high,<br />

contains 64 niches within<br />

its inner circumference.<br />

All except one of these<br />

contain an image of a Yogini<br />

Goddess. Some of the<br />

Goddesses are portrayed<br />

with sensual bodies and<br />

jeweled bodices, others with<br />

horrific shrunken features,<br />

still others with animal<br />

heads. Even today, standing<br />

cults responsible for these<br />

temples worshipped Yogini<br />

Goddesses in expectation<br />

of the direct acquisition<br />

of supernatural powers.<br />

The Yoginis were thought<br />

to be able to confer on<br />

their devotees the power<br />

to become microscopic or<br />

gigantic in size, to control<br />

and of others, to fly, become<br />

invisible, and myriad other<br />

useful abilities.<br />

Locally known as Maha<strong>may</strong>a<br />

Mandir, this hypaethral shrine<br />

facing east was discovered<br />

in 1953 by Kedarnath<br />

Mahapatra of the Orissa<br />

state Museum. The circular<br />

shrine measures 27.4 metre<br />

in circumference and 2.4<br />

metre in height, have a frontal<br />

projection resembling “Yoni”<br />

(Vagina) female reproductive<br />

organ. The inner parts of the<br />

temple is made of locally<br />

available coarse sandstone,<br />

it harbours images of Yoginis.<br />

The pillar like structure in<br />

the middle of the temple<br />

represents the Penis – male<br />

reproductive organ. The<br />

image of Ten-armed presiding<br />

deity of the pitha is worshiped<br />

as Maha<strong>may</strong>a and is the<br />

largest among the Yoginis.<br />

Whereas in the centre exists<br />

a lately restored Chandi<br />

Mandap displaying 4 Saivite<br />

figures and Yoginis, the<br />

entirely delicately rendered<br />

imagery notable for feminine<br />

beauty is carved in chlorite<br />

brought from elsewhere.<br />

The projected niches on<br />

the exterior of the edifice<br />

are studded with icons of<br />

Nava Katyayinis made of<br />

sandstones. It is assignable to<br />

circa ninth century AD.<br />

pointed out that Orissa must<br />

be the only place in the world<br />

with enough sophistication<br />

to have a modern, well<br />

Tanjore and Trichi.<br />

Kanchipuram thus became<br />

their new abode. Though<br />

classical writings talks<br />

about Pallavas, there is no<br />

particular mention of any<br />

Pallava rulers’s name. But<br />

the excavation carried out<br />

by the Indian archeological<br />

department reveals the<br />

earliest possible reign dated<br />

back to 1st and 2nd century<br />

AD. The earliest known<br />

coinage in lead is issued by<br />

the then Pallavs, which could<br />

be dated between 3rd and<br />

4th century AD.<br />

Around 4th century AD,<br />

Pallavas defeated Ikshvakus<br />

and occupied the land as far<br />

as river Krishna. Allahabad<br />

inscription throws the light<br />

on a ruler Hastivarman<br />

of Vengi’s defeat to<br />

Samudragupta in the 4th<br />

century. The copper plate of<br />

mid 4th century, talked about<br />

the Pallava grant in Andhra<br />

by Siva Skandavarman.<br />

During the 5th century, the<br />

Pallavas expanded and<br />

crossed the river Krishna<br />

and occupied Bellary,<br />

Sorth and South Arcot,<br />

Trichirapalli, Chengalpet and<br />

part of Tanjore. At the end of<br />

500 AD, the territory came<br />

into the possession of Simha<br />

Vishnu and he became<br />

the founder of the Pallava<br />

dynasty. He fought several<br />

wars and the empire enjoyed<br />

prosperity. After his death,<br />

his son Mahendravarman<br />

succeded.<br />

He was a learned man, he<br />

started the work of cave<br />

could be the reason why<br />

Mahabalipuram is called<br />

Mamallapuram. Badami<br />

remained in his control<br />

until 655 AD ill Vinayaditya<br />

restored it back to the<br />

Chalukya realm.<br />

the riches of kanchi and<br />

wanted to capture it. He<br />

came with a huge army and<br />

defeated Mahendravarman<br />

at Pullalur in 620 A.D. It was<br />

a great insult to the pallavas<br />

and Mahendravarman in<br />

particular. This ruined his<br />

health. His further attempts<br />

to take revenge in a series<br />

of battles with Pulikes in the<br />

northern part of Tamilnadu<br />

were all futile. All went in<br />

vain and he died a broken<br />

man in 630 A.D.<br />

Mahendravarman’s son<br />

Narasimhavarman ascended<br />

the throne in 630 A.D,<br />

and vowed to revenge the<br />

insult done to his father<br />

by the Chalukyas. With<br />

immense strength and tact<br />

he defeated Pulikesi II in the<br />

Battle of Manimangalam and<br />

Pariyalam in the year 632<br />

AD. He completely burnt the<br />

capital city of Pulakesi. A<br />

man with well built physique<br />

was a great wrestler too.<br />

He had a title “Mamalla” to<br />

Narasimhavarman<br />

completed the cave temples<br />

of Mahabalipuram and<br />

constructed immense<br />

number of temples. The<br />

Pallava dynasty was not that<br />

peak as under this ruler ever.<br />

But the successors managed<br />

to safeguard the territory<br />

until Cholas took their toll in<br />

the 9th century. The greatest<br />

dynasty thus saw its end<br />

once for all.<br />

DINING ROOM<br />

a healthy life<br />

Dining Room has high significance in Vastu.<br />

This is because a healthy life is based on<br />

perfect dining.<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | MAY <strong>2016</strong>


Tasty food will not provide<br />

health. Proper food provides<br />

health. If the healthy food is<br />

consumed in an environment<br />

which ignites positive energy,<br />

the result will be good health.<br />

So the positioning and design<br />

of the dining room is very<br />

important.<br />

The dining room can also be made<br />

in the East direction of the house,<br />

as the morning sunrays are very<br />

good for the health.<br />

* The dining room should<br />

be placed in West corner, as<br />

the setting rays will kill all the<br />

harmful bacteria present in<br />

the stored food.<br />

* The dining room can also<br />

be made in the East direction<br />

of the house, as the morning<br />

sunrays are very good for the<br />

health.<br />

* The dining table should be<br />

perfect square / rectangle.<br />

* Dining table should not be<br />

sticking to the wall.<br />

* Fridge in the dining room,<br />

should be in southeast<br />

direction.<br />

* While eating the members<br />

should face the east, north.<br />

* The wash basin should be<br />

in Northeast side of the room.<br />

* The main door of the house<br />

and of the Dining Room<br />

should not face each other.<br />

* The dining room should not<br />

be adjacent to toilet.<br />

* The door of Pooja room /<br />

toilet should not be open in<br />

front of dining area.<br />

* If console has to be placed<br />

near dining for storage of<br />

crockery and utensils, it<br />

should be on South / West<br />

wall of that area.<br />

You have to take into<br />

consideration the following<br />

points on Dining Room, when<br />

you plan to construct a house.<br />

* Proper location and<br />

orientation of the dining room<br />

in the house<br />

* Direction of the Entrance<br />

* Direction and placement of<br />

the windows<br />

* Direction and placement<br />

of the dining table<br />

* Direction and placement<br />

of the console<br />

* Direction to face while<br />

having food<br />

* Direction and placement<br />

of the water (aquarium,<br />

fountain)<br />

8. Direction and placement<br />

of the TV, audio systems and<br />

other electronic items<br />

* Direction and placement<br />

of the heavy antique items<br />

10. Direction and placement<br />

of wall clocks<br />

* Colour scheme of the room<br />

After all, a healthy<br />

environment only can ensure<br />

a healthy living. Perfect vastu<br />

of dining room can eliminate<br />

many different illness and<br />

diseases.<br />

Lord Krishna states that it is<br />

better to follow one’s own duties<br />

according to station and rank<br />

in life, as enjoined by the Vedic<br />

scriptures.<br />

Verse meaning<br />

It is far better to discharge<br />

one’s prescribed duties, even<br />

though they <strong>may</strong> be faulty, than<br />

another’s duties. Destruction<br />

in the course of performing<br />

one’s own duty is better than<br />

engaging in another’s duties,<br />

for to follow another’s path is<br />

dangerous.<br />

Explanation<br />

One should discharge his<br />

prescribed duties in full<br />

consciousness, rather than<br />

those prescribed for others.<br />

Prescribed duties complement<br />

one’s psychophysical<br />

condition, under the spell of the<br />

modes of material nature. Both<br />

materially or spiritually, one<br />

should stick to his prescribed<br />

duties even up to death,<br />

rather than imitate another’s<br />

prescribed duties.<br />

Duties on the spiritual platform<br />

and duties on the material<br />

platform <strong>may</strong> be different, but<br />

the principle of following the<br />

authorized direction is always<br />

good for the performer. When<br />

one is under the spell of the<br />

modes of material nature, one<br />

should follow the prescribed<br />

rules for particular situations<br />

and should not imitate others.<br />

One should engage<br />

themselves in their duties<br />

overriding one’s normal<br />

inclinations which are even<br />

seen to be in the natures of<br />

animals. Engage in ones own<br />

duty, that one possesses in<br />

the correct inner mentality<br />

to accomplish it, but for<br />

engagment in other’s duty in<br />

the correct inner mentality<br />

would not be present, even<br />

if the external action was<br />

performed perfectly.<br />

Lord Krishna states that it<br />

is better to follow one’s own<br />

duties according to station and<br />

rank in life, as enjoined by the<br />

Vedic scriptures. Performing<br />

other’s duty is not authorised<br />

in the Vedic scriptures and<br />

is being prohibited and is<br />

fraught with danger. One who<br />

exempts themselves from their<br />

prescribed actions as enjoined<br />

in the Vedic scriptures, is<br />

never qualified to perform the<br />

prescribed actions of a higher<br />

station. Such actions are<br />

prohibited.<br />

Vishu<br />

WWW.WISHESH.COM | MAY <strong>2016</strong>


Vishu is celebrated with much fanfare and vigour<br />

in all parts of Kerala, especially by Hindus. It is<br />

considered as a festival of light and fireworks. Other<br />

elements of Vishu include wearing new clothes for<br />

the occasion, the tradition of giving money called<br />

Vishukkaineetam and the Vishu feast or Sadya.<br />

Vishu marks the beginning of<br />

Meda Rashi, the first zodiac sign. It<br />

signifies the equinox according to<br />

the solar calendar and falls usually in<br />

the second week of April according<br />

to the English calendar. Mesha<br />

Sankranthi is celebrated as Vishu in<br />

Kerala.<br />

Vishu is celebrated with much<br />

include wearing new clothes for<br />

the occasion, the tradition of giving<br />

money called Vishukkaineetam and<br />

the Vishu feast or Sadya.<br />

The most important event in Vishu<br />

is the Vishukkani, which literally<br />

means “the first thing seen on the<br />

day of Vishu after waking up”.<br />

The Vishukkani consists of a ritual<br />

arrangement of auspicious articles<br />

intended to signify prosperity, which<br />

includes rice, fruits and vegetables,<br />

betel leaves, arecanut, metal mirror,<br />

yellow flowers called konna (Cassia<br />

fistula), holy texts and coins, all<br />

arranged around lord Krishna in<br />

an ambience lit by nilavilakku or<br />

tookkuvilakku (traditional oil lamps)<br />

usually in the prayer room of the<br />

house.<br />

The Sadhya (feast) is a major part of<br />

all Kerala festivals. However, Vishu<br />

Kanji, Thoran and Vishu katta are<br />

more important during the festival<br />

of Vishu. The Kanji is made of rice,<br />

coconut milk and spices. Vishu katta<br />

is a delicacy prepared from freshly<br />

harvested rice powder and coconut<br />

milk served with jaggery. For Thoran,<br />

the side dish, there are mandatory<br />

ingredients. Other important Vishu<br />

delicacies include Veppampoorasam<br />

(a bitter preparation of neem) and<br />

Mampazhappulissery (a sour mango<br />

soup).<br />

Sardaar Gabbar Singh, released as<br />

the most anticipated movie of the<br />

year and was opened to negative<br />

reviews all over, right after the benefit<br />

shows conducted on the release day.<br />

Though most of the scenes are found<br />

entertaining, the non-sinking scenes<br />

and lack of connectivity between scene<br />

to scene, is what spoiled the flow of<br />

Sardaar Gabbar Singh.<br />

The weak screenplay can be felt right<br />

from the start of the film and that made<br />

it face the bad fortune. Adding to the<br />

fate, the makers even announced Raja<br />

Sardaar Gabbar Singh as the third part<br />

of Gabbar Singh series. That is highly<br />

criticized by the insiders and reportedly<br />

stopped Pawan from holding the pen<br />

again.<br />

Ki & Ka<br />

Ki and Ka has an<br />

engaging first half<br />

but the completely<br />

disturbing second<br />

half makes the<br />

film fall flat. A<br />

disappoint for<br />

sure despite of<br />

some stupendous<br />

performances<br />

by Arjun and<br />

Kareena.<br />

Story :<br />

Ki and Ka is the story of Kabir<br />

(Arjun Kapoor) who is the son of<br />

a businessman based in Delhi<br />

but he aspires to become like his<br />

mom who is a stupendous home<br />

maker. Kia (Kareena Kapoor<br />

Khan) is a complete contrary<br />

to Kabir who is aggresive and<br />

dreams huge in her career. She<br />

aspires to live independent. They<br />

meet unusually at a random place<br />

and the chemistry click instantly.<br />

They get married and Kabir takes<br />

care of the house hold activities<br />

while Kia follws to achieve her<br />

corporate dream. At one point<br />

of time disturbances arise and<br />

watch Ki and Ka to know about the<br />

complete story.<br />

Analysis :<br />

The first half of the movie is<br />

completely engaging and loaded<br />

with sensible entertainment<br />

throughout. The director managed<br />

to indulge lot of sense of humor in<br />

the fresh plot. The performances by<br />

Arjun and Kareena take the film to<br />

the next level. The music has been<br />

melodious and the songs have<br />

been marked at the right places.<br />

The interval episodes have been<br />

decent and the complete first half<br />

has been fresh in narration.<br />

The second half of the movie<br />

will leave the audience in deep<br />

shock after such an interesting<br />

first half. The dose of drama has<br />

been beyond the limits and many<br />

unwanted episodes have been<br />

dragged much. The complete<br />

efforts of the first half look vanished<br />

after watching the second half<br />

which makes the film fall flat. The<br />

climax has been decent but it alone<br />

could not save the film.<br />

Final Word:<br />

Ki and Ka has an engaging first<br />

half but the completely disturbing<br />

second half makes the film fall flat.<br />

A disappoint for sure despite of<br />

some stupendous performances by<br />

Arjun and Kareena.<br />

Fan will sure reach<br />

the expectations<br />

and SRK is back<br />

with his destructive<br />

performance<br />

throughout the<br />

film.If you ignore<br />

the climax, Fan<br />

is a must watch<br />

film which is<br />

completely racy<br />

and nail biting.<br />

Story :<br />

Aryan Khanna (Shah Rukh Khan)<br />

is a Bollywood Superstar and he<br />

has fans across the world. He<br />

worked real hard to reach the<br />

unbeatable place and Gaurav<br />

Chandana (Shah Rukh Khan)<br />

is one of his truest and die hard<br />

fan. He aspires of meeting him on<br />

his birthday but fails to meet his<br />

dream idol. Hence he chooses the<br />

other way to meet the Superstar<br />

which disturbs Aryan Khanna.<br />

He decides to teach him a lesson<br />

which hurts Gaurav. With this<br />

unexpected twirl, Gaurav turns<br />

decides to damage the image and<br />

respect earned by the Superstar.<br />

happens next. Watch Fan to know<br />

about the complete film.<br />

Analysis :<br />

The first half of the film starts with<br />

the introduction of Aryan Khanna<br />

and Gaurav Chandana which<br />

brings a good clarity on their<br />

characters. Gaurav’s performance<br />

in his colony as Aryan Khanna<br />

is sure an impressive show after<br />

which the film moves on to the<br />

original plot. An unexpected<br />

incident changes the pace of the<br />

film and the complete first half has<br />

been well executed.<br />

The second half of Fan has its<br />

emotional and destructive side. The<br />

most interesting thing is that the<br />

audience will be left amazed and<br />

entertained at the same time. You<br />

will be laughing with tears and the<br />

complete auditorium has been left<br />

with pin drop silence throughout the<br />

second half. The action episodes<br />

have been racy and top notch.<br />

Sardaar Gabbar Singh<br />

Sardaar<br />

Gabbar<br />

Singh falls far<br />

behind the<br />

expectations<br />

and ends up<br />

as a huge<br />

disappointment<br />

all over.<br />

Story :<br />

Sardaar Gabbar Singh is about<br />

Rathanpur who happened to<br />

be the common point of three<br />

neighbouring states. However it<br />

has been dominated by a batch<br />

of mafia goons lead by Bhairav<br />

Singh (Sharad Kelkar) who has<br />

been into mining mafia. It is during<br />

this time, Sardaar Gabbar Singh<br />

(Pawan Kalyan) gets transferred<br />

to Rathanpur and he slowly makes<br />

his impact with his power packed<br />

style keeping an end to the acts of<br />

mafia. Sardaar Gabbar Singh falls<br />

in love with Arshi (Kajal Agarwal)<br />

who happens to be the princess<br />

of Rathanpur kingdom. The rest of<br />

the movie is how Sardaar Gabbar<br />

Singh saves the common people<br />

from the mafia goons and wins his<br />

love with Arshi. Watch Sardaar<br />

Gabbar Singh to know about the<br />

complete story.<br />

Analysis :<br />

The first half of Sardaar Gabbar<br />

Singh has nothing new and<br />

interesting episodes throughout.<br />

The entertainment has been<br />

completely outdated. The songs<br />

lost pace and they failed to impress<br />

the audience completely. The<br />

action episodes lacked power<br />

and they looked completely fake.<br />

The interval episodes have been<br />

dragged much with over dose of<br />

action.<br />

After a below average first half, the<br />

audience face tough time during<br />

the second half of the film. The<br />

second half dips down even more<br />

and Sardaar Gabbar Singh fails in<br />

all the available ways during the<br />

second half of the film. The songs<br />

failed to impress the audience with<br />

the visuals and the entertainment<br />

looks copied.<br />

Final Word:<br />

Sardaar Gabbar Singh falls far<br />

behind the expectations and ends<br />

up as a huge disappointment all<br />

over.<br />

Sarrainodu<br />

Analysis :<br />

112<br />

Story :<br />

Sarainodu<br />

is the right<br />

commercial film<br />

to be watched<br />

this summer if<br />

you ignore the<br />

dose of action<br />

episodes.<br />

Sarainodu is the story of Gana<br />

(Allu Arjun) who fights against<br />

the system in the society. He<br />

makes his presence wherever<br />

he is needed and gets back from<br />

Army to serve the society. He<br />

falls in love with Hanshita Reddy<br />

(Catherine Tresa) who is a local<br />

MLA and upon impressing her,<br />

she asks him to leave violence<br />

after which an unknown incident<br />

changes his life. The rest of the<br />

film is about his relation with Janu<br />

(Rakul Preet Singh) and his rivalry<br />

with Dhanush (Aadi Pinisetty).<br />

Watch Sarainodu to know about<br />

the complete story.<br />

The first half of Sarainodu has right<br />

mixture of emotions, entertainment<br />

and action balanced well with<br />

suspense elements throughout.<br />

The songs have been decent and<br />

placed well. Allu Arjun is the major<br />

boost up of the movie throughout<br />

and he has been extremely<br />

outstanding in the action episodes.<br />

The pre-interval episodes bring lot<br />

of interest and the interval episode<br />

has been shot well. On the whole<br />

the complete first half has been<br />

completely impressive.<br />

The second half of Sarainodu too<br />

carries the same pace initially<br />

however the film lacks interest<br />

when it heads forward. The dose<br />

of action becomes high and the<br />

film becomes predictable at parts.<br />

The climax of the movie makes a<br />

huge impact on the movie and the<br />

complete second half has been<br />

decent.<br />

Final Word:<br />

Sarainodu is the right commercial<br />

film to be watched this summer<br />

if you ignore the dose of action<br />

episodes. Allu Arjun performs to<br />

the peaks which make the movie a<br />

decent action entertainer.<br />

VIRGO<br />

Jupiter is still a great ally for you Virgos. Ask for the Moon and you will get it, don’t<br />

think small, on the contrary aim at bigger goals, and be ambitious. You <strong>may</strong> be upset<br />

by some competition at work, but in the end, it keeps you more motivated and you learn to<br />

fight for your ground. Express yourself loud, no more shyness or excess of discretion, show<br />

off, it is good for you, your ego will never become too big.<br />

SCORPIO<br />

You spend too much money of<br />

clothes and you try to stop yourself<br />

and resist the temptation. If you<br />

work in the fashion industry, it is harder for<br />

you than anyone else. Scorpios love clothes<br />

and lingerie. In a relationship you are evolving<br />

to a higher level, you get along so well<br />

physically and emotionally also. Dialogue is<br />

also very intimate and passionate.<br />

AQUARIUS<br />

This could be a wonderful month for<br />

news about your home and family<br />

matters. No what your plans happen<br />

to be, you will have outstanding help from a<br />

sweet little convention of planets lining up in<br />

your fourth house of home. News will start to<br />

arrive the moment the new moon of May 6 in<br />

Taurus, 17 degrees, appears along with her<br />

entourage of the mighty Sun.<br />

enjoy his presence as much as<br />

you can, do all the things that need<br />

energy, so at the end of the month you will<br />

be able to relax and just work at a gentle<br />

rhythm. Keep exercising, it gives you a better<br />

emotional balance. You make big projects as<br />

you want to have a sense of purpose in your<br />

life. Making a difference and helping others<br />

is something that speaks to you.<br />

CAPRICORN<br />

Love is really the good news of your<br />

month, May is the best period for your<br />

relationship. If you are single, you will<br />

meet someone with a great personality and lots<br />

of charm. If you are in a relationship, you really<br />

feel like being together, you love each other’s<br />

company and you don’t need anybody else.<br />

Make some time for friends though, they <strong>may</strong><br />

not be happy that you let them down.<br />

LIBRA<br />

Lilith makes a little return to Libra<br />

and it helps you to analyze your work<br />

situation. Are you on the right track?<br />

Do you want another position? When are you<br />

going to get a substantial raise? When should<br />

you talk to your boss? Lots of question, and<br />

you will think again and again before you find<br />

the answer. You talk with your loved one who<br />

gives you a great support.<br />

PISCES<br />

Neptune and Saturn are playing with<br />

your nerves, you feel like events<br />

are very unsteady for you. Like you<br />

talk with your boss about a change to come<br />

and then nothing happens. Or a guy hits<br />

on you and then disappears even ghosting<br />

you. Hard to understand what is going on?<br />

The roller coaster rhythm that is going on is<br />

affecting you emotionally until the 26.<br />
