Airport authorities are regularly gifted with gold April 21, 2015 11:50

Frankly speaking, people are not in a position to spare some time to know about the legal things.  “Illegal”. The word that always creates some anxiety, and everyone starts hunting the truth behind it. There might not be great logic or international secret behind it, but the word always has its own significance.So if just, knowing some illegal news makes people anxious, then what about doing the illegal things on our own. Salman Khan already shown the kick that arises after stealing money and such other illegal activities in a very unique way. But I don't understand, why the people are not able to catch that uniqueness in the illegal activities. They are still following very old methods for carrying on those activities.   For example, observe the people who carry illegal gold through Airports. Carrying such gold to airport should obviously be gifted to the authorities of the airport. For expressing your love on the airport authorities, you need not give such costly gifts.So it is better to search some new way for carrying that gold to other countries. But if you are left with no option, leave it in the country itself and preserve it, till you get a good rate for it. By Phani

Love your wife as marital Romance gets a second wind April 21, 2015 11:24

It is an open secret that the intimacy between the married couples comes down with time. But the researchers from three Universities in the Southern US stated that couples whose marriages last longer than half a century experience a rebound. As the marriage life is full of responsibilities, the time for love and affection between the partners subsides over time. But if they are successful in leading lives happily for long time, the affection between them increases and trust between them builds over time as a result their marriage life is unlikely to break down, Dr. Stroope stated. To know about this, the research team analysed the marriages and Romanceual outcomes of 1,656 married adults between the ages of 57 and 85 and, while their findings come as a pleasant surprise, they say couples that made it through 50 years of marriage are few. "Additionally, the study used a snapshot in time and therefore cannot prove that length and order of marriage caused Romanceual frequency," says Dr. Stroope.So couples who stay longer time with each other are experiencing the Romance rebound. But the people who remarry do not affect pleasure and satisfaction as per the study. By Lizitha

Clinical Kolkata Knight Riders beat Delhi Daredevils in IPL8 April 21, 2015 10:36

Captain Gautam Gambhir's 49-ball 60 led Kolkata Knight Riders to a convincing six-wicket victory against Delhi Daredevils in their IPL encounter at the Feroz Shah Kotla on Monday.Riding on Gambhir's knock, Kolkata chased down the 147-run target in 18.1 overs with Yusuf Pathan remaining unbeaten on 40, a knock that came off 26 balls and was studded with a huge six and six fours.Kolkata were in a spot of bother when they lost Robin Uthappa (13) and Manish Pandey (0) in one over by Domnic Joseph.Suryakumar Yadav hit 24 runs before getting dismissed by Nathan Coulter-Nile that brought Pathan to the crease, who added 65 runs for the fourth wicket with Gambhir.It was a typical knock from Gambhir as he looked to steer mainly through the third-man region to keep the scorecard moving and amassed a fine fifty.The Kolkata captain found an able partner at the other end in Yadav, who muscled a few shots down the ground.Yadav's eyes certainly lit up when JP Duminy introduced himself into the attack. He carted Delhi's captain down the ground for a six in the eighth over before perishing to Coulter-Nile.Once Yadav was dismissed, Pathan clobbered the bowlers to all corners of the ground to take his team to victory.Kolkata Knight Riders bowled well to restrict Delhi Daredevils to 146/8. (PTI Photo)Earlier, Kolkata bowlers led by pacers Morne Morkel and Umesh Yadav bowled a tight line to restrict Delhi to 146/8.Put into bat, Delhi were hurt by lack of partnerships but a late flourish from Angelo Mathews (21-ball 28) helped the home side get some respect to their total as Morkel and Yadav picked two wickets apiece.The South African pacer (2/30) drew first blood after getting Mayank Agarwal (1) caught at long leg with Umesh Yadav taking a sprawling catch.Mystery spinner Sunil Narine then struck in his very first over, cleaning up skipper Jean-Paul Duminy (5), who was done in by an off-spinner that was pitched outside the leg-stump to the left-hander.Young batsman Shreyas Iyer (31) then counter-attacked to stitch a 36-run partnership with Manoj Tiwary (32).Just when it seemed the Mumbai-born player, who hit 3 fours and a six, is ready to take on the Kolkata bowlers, leg-spinner Piyush Chawla got the dangerman cleaned up in the ninth over.Tiwary then joined hands with Yuvraj Singh (21) to not only rebuild the Delhi innings after the strategic time out but also improve the scoring-rate with a few hits to the fence.But the Bengal player, whose 28-ball stay was laced with 5 fours, was scalped by Morkel after he mistimed a pull to short mid-wicket as the fourth wicket 37-run partnership came to an end.Yuvraj's brief stay at the crease also came to an end in what looked like a funny stumping off Chawla after the left-hander had lost sight of the white ball while attempting a sweep and wicketkeeper Robin Uthappa was sharp to take the bails off only in the second attempt.Kolkata bowlers continued to hurt the Delhi batting after Umesh Yadav got Kedar Jadhav (12) caught at backward point on the last ball of his third over.But Mathews got stuck into Narine, hitting the off-spinner for two consecutive sixes and ended the 19th over with a boundary to get 20 runs of the West Indians' final over.Nathan Coulter-Nile was run out in the final over of the innings and Mathews was caught behind off the final delivery with Yadav ending with impressive figures of 2/18.Earlier, the two teams also observed two minutes silence in memory of young Bengal player Ankit Keshri, who died of a cardiac arrest three days after sustaining head injuries post a freak on-field collision during a CAB one-day game. - Manohar

HistoryThe history of Sambalpur, as depicted by eminent historians, is full of events including Indian freedom struggle representing the different sections of society. Sambalpur is an ancient district of India, which survived even in the prehistoric age and holds a very important place in the history of Orissa and India.Sambalpur is mentioned in the book of Ptolemy (Claudius Ptolemaist) as Sambalaka on the left bank of river "Manada", now known as Mahanadi, other evidence are available from the records of Huan Tsang and in the writings of the celebrated King Indrabhuti of Sambalaka of Odra Desha or Oddiyan (oldest known king of Sambalpur), the founder of Vajrayana Buddhism and the Lama cult. He has written the book Jnanasiddhi.French merchant Jean Baptiste Tavernier (1605–1689) in his travel account wrote about the numerous famous diamond mines of Sumelpur (Semelpur), the present day Sambalpur. He states that, 8,000 people were at work in these mines at the time of his visit, in the dry season at the beginning of February.History reveals that in 4th century Samudragupta defeated King Mahendra of Koshala, the kingdom that included Sambalpur. During 5th and 6th centuries Sambalpur came under the rule of Sarbhapuriyas. In 7th century Panduvansi king Trivaradeva took the charge. Further, towards the close of 9th century king Janmajaya I Mahabhavagupta extended his empire. Later his dynasty came to be known as Somvanshi dynasty. At the end of the Somvanshi rule, Sambalpur was occupied by the Kalachuris of Ratnapua. Acrid fight was seen between the Kalachuris and the Gandas in 13th century. Later on, the Gandas occupied Sambalpur.In mid of 14th century Ramai Dev laid the foundation of Chauhan rule in western Odisha. However, the Chauhan rule ended in April, 1800, when Sambalpur was occupied by Marathas. Sambalpur District was occupied by British on 2nd January, 1804. Finally it passed on to the British rule in 1817. The following years witnessed the movements of the Kandhas and Binjhal Zamidars against the British. The erstwhile Sambalpur District was divided into four Districts on 31st March, 1993.Vajrayana BuddhismAlthough it is generally accepted that Tantric Buddhism first developed in the country of Uddiyana or Odra Desha under King Indrabhuti, there is an old and well known scholarly dispute as to whether Uddiyana or Odra was in the Swat valley, Orissa or some other place.Indrabhuti, the oldest known king of Sambalpur founded Vajrayana while his sister who was married to Yuvaraja Jalendra of Lankapuri (Subarnapura) founded Sahajayana. These new Tantric cults of Buddhism introduced Mantra, Mudra and Mandala along with six Tantric Abhicharas (practices) such as Marana, Stambhana, Sammohana, Vidvesan, Uchchatana and Vajikarana. The Tantric Buddhist sects made efforts to raise the dignity of the lowest of the low of the society to a higher plane. It revived primitive beliefs and practices a simpler and less formal approach to the personal god, a liberal and respectful attitude towards women and denial of caste system.From the seventh century A.D. onwards many popular religious elements of heterogeneous nature were incorporated into Mahayana Buddhism which finally resulted in the origin of Vajrayana, Kalachakrayana and Sahajayana Tantric Buddhism. Tantric Buddhism first developed in Uddiyana, a country which was divided into two kingdoms Sambhala' and Lankapuri. Sambhala has been identified with Sambalpur and Lankapuri with Subarnapura (Sonepur).The Leaning Temple of HumaThe Leaning Temple of Huma is located about 25 km from Sambalpur. The 17th century temple of Huma leans at an approximate angle of 47 degrees to the west. Samaleswari TempleThis is the main temple of Goddess Samaleswari, located on the banks of river Mahanadi. Sambalpur owes its name to her.Ghanteswari TempleLocated 33 kilometres south-west of Sambalpur and on the bank of river Mahanadi, this temple played an important role for navigation in the past. It was called a light house without a light. A temple also existed here, of Goddess Ghanteswari from whom the place got its name. Earlier there were some large bells on this spot and with the help of wind those created enormous sound which made the navigators aware of this treacherous spot. This area being the conglomeration of three streams of water of the Mahanadi River, the water current here is very dangerous forming a whirlpool. Here the wind blows quite heavily which caused the bells to produce sound. The specialty of this temple area is thousands of bells hanging everywhere, the only place of its kind in Orissa.   By Premji

Stop this Anti-Religious moment April 20, 2015 19:16

Just two months after a temple vandalized in Washington State, another heinous attack took place in North Texas, where the vandals wrecked a temple with vulgar Graffiti painted on its walls. The attack was the third in three months. This comes nothing, but as revenge to the recent Church vandalisms in India.So, where are we heading to? When shall we learn?When Barrack Obama visited India in January, he received a warm welcome from our Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Both exchanged talks, gifts, and views in accord. Before winding his three-day visit, Obama even urges for a global peace, where people can live without ‘fear’ (the word graffitied on the temple wall?).While the ‘World’s largest and oldest democracies’ are trying to mending the fences, some narrow-minded people or rather crooked minds are attacking the religious freedom and liberty of people, which is truly uncalled for. This is truly lack of awareness on religion and its values. Neither Hinduism nor Christianity preaches ‘eye for an eye theory’. Moreover, the ‘religious intolerance’ only fuels the hatred feelings and jealousy. Whether it is in India or in US, people who are practicing their respective religions over the generations, doesn’t see the temples and/or Churches just as places of worship, but also as platforms to let their children stay connected with their roots. Though Obama celebrated Diwali at White House last year to spread the message among Americans, the ethos and values are ‘to-be’ reached and well-understood by them.Also the Indian politicians and media have to be faulted and to be blamed for the Church attacks in India. Each time an attack happens, ‘our pseudo secular ‘leaders’’ promise to secure the religious identity and conveniently ignore the issue afterwards. Adding to the woes, media also spotlight the incident when it happen and didn’t highlight the aftermath. - Manohar
