Karva Chauth

The Legend of Karwa Chauth

The Story Of Queen Veeravati
A long long time ago, there lived a beautiful girl by the name of Veeravati. She was the only sister of her seven loving brothers, who was married to a king. On the occasion of the first Karwa Chauth after her marriage, she went to her parents’ house. After sunrise, she observed a strict fast. However, the queen couldn’t stand the rigors of fasting and was desperatly waiting for the moon to rise. The seven brothers who loved her dearly, were very disturbed watching the distress of their sister and decided to end her fast by deceiving her. Then the brothers reflected a mirror through Pipal tree leaves. The sister, taken it as moon rise, broke the fast and took food. However, the moment the queen ate her dinner, she received the news that her husband, the king, was seriously ill.

The queen rushed to her husband’s palace and on the way, she met Lord Shiva and his consort, Goddess Parvati. Parvati informed her that the king had died because the queen had broken her fast by watching a false moon. However, when the queen asked her for forgiveness, the goddess granted her the boon that the king would be revived. But to achieve this, she would have to undertake the Karwa Chauth fast under strict rituals, then only her husband would come top life. Thus, by strictly following all the rituals of Karva chauth, queen Veeravati relivened her husband.

Michelle Palmer and Vince Acors jailed – Sex on Dubai beach

Michelle Palmer

Michelle Palmer and Vince Acors jailed : Sex on Dubai beach

A British couple was sentenced to three months in jail Thursday in a case that has caused controversy in this Gulf boom town because the two were charged with having sex on the beach.

The judge did not provide any details about his verdict as is customary in Dubai, so it is unclear whether Michelle Palmer and Vince Acors were found guilty of engaging in intercourse, or some lesser offense.

The two Britons, who are both in their 30s and met at an all-you-can-drink champagne brunch before the alleged incident occurred, were arrested in July and later charged with sex outside of marriage, public indecency and drunkenness.

In addition to the three month jail sentence, Judge Hamdi Mustafa Abu el-Khair levied the equivalent of about a $270 fine against each of the defendants and ordered them to be deported from Dubai after serving their prison time.

Cheenti Cheenti Bang Bang

Cheenti Cheenti Bang Bang

Cheenti Cheenti Bang Bang derives its title from an English flick but nothing else about this film appears international. For how long will we give sympathy votes to Indian films for attempting animation? Agreed that the art is still evolving in India, but if nothing from the form or format appeals, I ain’t patriotic enough to approve of the effort only because it’s experimental. Moreover with access to advanced animation movies across the globe, one simply can’t excuse this muddled endeavour. Rather overlook it in entirety!

Actress Hema Malini Turns 60

Dream Girl Hema Malini is young at heart. The actress who ruled Bollywood film industry for more than 15years is still growing stronger with every year. This year Hema turns 60 ( Yes, we are not kidding!). Needless to say she doesn’t look her age and even today she can look as stunning as young stars.

“I feel 16 at 60,” says Hema with a smile. “I guess age has nothing to do with creativity, but it certainly has a lot to do with maturity and dedication. I have lived life on my own terms and conditions and now when I look back I feel happy about all the decision I have taken,” she adds.

Pongal 2009

Pongal is celebrated on this date itself and also to celebrate the coming of spring. There are several ways of calculating the Hindu solar calendar, so Pongal date may vary by up to one day in various parts of India depending whether local custom dictates the use of the old or new Hindu calendar or astronomical tables. Pongal or Thai Pongal is also called Makara Sankaranthi, since it is celebrated on the first day of Thai when the Sun enters the Makara Rasi (Capricornus). This signals the end of winter and the onset of spring throughout the northern hemisphere. For the next six months, the days are longer and warmer.

As the day of Pongal celebration is decided according to the solar calendar, the Pongal date remains the same every year. Following are the date on which the four days of Pongal are celebrated:

Bhogi Festival : 13th January. (Every Year)
Pongal : 14th January. (Every Year)
Maathu Pongal : 15th January. (Every Year)

Sarah Palin Autism


Sarah Palin Autism

I just finished watching the presidential debates, and heard the word “autism” brought up not once, not twice, but at least three or four times.

Mr. McCain referred to “precious children” with autism, and suggested that Sarah Palin would be a strong supporter of parents of autistic children (presumably because she has a child with Down syndrome). Mr. Obama described plans to increase funding for autism research and implied support for increased funding for special education (though he made no particular mention of how or whether special education might be reformed or improved).

Presidential Debate

presidential debate october 15 2008

Presidential Debate 2008 election are now over, brought to a close by an at-times testy back and forth between Barack Obama and John McCain at Hofstra University in New York.

McCain did not score the knockout blow that many Republicans had hoped but he did land several solid body shots — the best of which was his repudiation of Obama’s contention that he represented four more years of President George W. Bush.

Obama, well aware of his lead in state and national polls, refused to be flustered by McCain and instead brought nearly every question he was asked back to the economy and the struggles of average middle class families. Obama wasn’t particularly dynamic, but he didn’t have to be.

Congressman John Lewis

McCain took issue with a recent attack by Democratic Rep. John Lewis, an icon of the civil rights movement, who levied a harsh attack against McCain and Sarah Palin for not doing more to repudiate the negative statements some supporters have made at GOP rallies. McCain called the attack “unfair and totally inapproate” and rightly noted that he has personally repudiated attacks from Republicans against Obama.
