Ma Tara: Another Incarnation of Goddess Durga

Image
The similarities in appearances between Kali and Tara are striking and unmistakable. They both are described as standing upon a supine Shiva in inert or corpselike form. However, while Kali is described as black, Tara is described as blue. Both wear minimal clothing, however Tara wears a tiger skin skirt, while Kali wears only a girdle of severed human arms.

I cant stop getting amused, seeing people buy loads of sea shell products from the shore side shops in Digha, thinking they are buying some local products from digha as a momento of their visit and also for gift purposes. Do they know that these shells are not from the sea near Digha? but are brought from places far off in the south India like from the beaches of Trivandrum,Rameshwaram and other beaches in the region.

The Silver harvest...

Fisherwomen stack and sorting their prized catch of day. Soon it will be auctioned on the beach itself, where it is unloaded by the fishermen returning early in the morning on a beach near Digha. The fish that is in abundance today is a fish locally called as Chanda and is auctioned generally between Rs. 20-30 per Kg.

Grasshoppers live all over the world in open grasslands, feeding on grass or any other available leafy vegetation, and sometimes causing serious damage to crops. They are essentially solitary and residential species, often abundant as individuals, but which may occasionally migrate. Poecilocerus pictus lives on Ak plant in India. The short-winged, lubber grasshopper, Romalea microptera or Brachystola magna, is commonly used for class study in U.S.A.

Certain kinds are known as locusts, particularly the gregarious and migratory forms, which are highly destructive. There are several species of locusts in the world. Locusta migratoria of the Old World occurs from eastern Europe to the Philippines. The desert locust (Schistocerca gregaria) extends from North Africa to north India. The Bombay locust (Cyrtacanthacris succinta) is confined to India. The chief North American species are the American locust (Schistocerca americana), the Carolina locust (Dissosteira c…

Left front and Bengal

Image
The success of the left front government in West Bengal is a much discussed and debated issue all across the world. Amidst a worldwide decay of communism as a distinctive political way of governing a state, how a communist party has been able to carry on with its triumphs in a province of a country like India, is a matter of surprise and inquisition to any outsider. Critics have often designated the reign as more of a quantitative success (30 years) than a qualitative one. But to understand the vibes and repercussions of a highly sensitive and politically conscious people like the Bengalis truly, one has to take a much closer and all the more analytic look at the state, the party and its background.

6 oldest universities of modern India

Image
The seeds of modern western education were laid in the country along with the development of business and power of the British East India Company during the early 19th century. The company needed educated locals to carry out its business properly in India, and the local masses started feeling the need for proper certification of qualification for the purpose of serving the administration and other government departments. The result was the foundation of the first three universities of the country by Earl Viscount Canning, the British Governor General, in 1857. In a time of nationwide political disturbances and turmoil in the form of the Indigo Revolutions, the Santhal Revolutions and the Sepoy Mutiny, the country slowly progresses towards what we now know as proper institutionalized and global education.

Intended to be a chronicle history of the foundation and development of this format of education in the country, our series would contain 6 episodes on the 6 oldest universities of mod…

The Docks of Death :Alang: Asia’s biggest ship-breaking yard

Image
When prosperity comes at the cost of nature, the prices to be paid sometimes are too high. That is what one could derive from the situation at Alang. The ship-breaking yard near Bhavnagar in Gujarat is supposed to be the largest of its kind in Asia. What was once the peacefully picturesque coasts of western Gujarat, turned almost at the wink of an eye into a busy bustling giant junkyard in 1983, when Alang was commissioned for dismantling “decommissioned” ships, as they are called after being declared unusable. It was a story of dream-come-true for the ship-breakers, their employees and all other associated industries for the next 2 decades. The yard reached its peak in 1997-98 with all of its 180 plots, as the individual yards are referred to as, fully functional and ready to cater to nearly 350 ships. At that time the yards employed more than 40,000 workers, ho hardly fell short of work.

But then things started changing, almost as if at the wave of some black magic wand. A mere stati…

First BJP Government has at last set up in South India

Image
After a long one month of suspense, the union Cabinet decided to withdraw the president’s rule in Karnataka, embarking on a new journey by paving a way to build up the first BJP government in South India. The spirit of celebration for the saffron was at its peak, when the Karnataka leader B S Yeddyurappa took the oath of office on November 12th 2007, in Bangalore. The union Cabinet considered the report of Governor Rameshwar Thakur to the Center. In his report Thakur had no doubt about the numbers being clearly with the BJP-JD(S) combine. His report had a point over the stability of the combination stating the manner in which the previous H D Kumaraswamy government failed to honour its commitment. When the Cabinet meeting was over the finance minister P Chidambaram stated, “The Cabinet decided that the governor may be advised to invite BJP leader B S Yeddyurappa to form the government.” The center would advise the governor to invite parties, which according to him would be best suite…

Barrackpore: the cradle of the quake

Image
The Sepoy Mutiny of 1857 was one of the most remarkable events that took place in British India, especially during the rule of the East India Company. It indeed was the first mass uprising against the foreign rule in the country. Historians may have doubts and conflicts regarding the nature of the revolt and the reasons behind its failure, but it cannot be denied that the Sepoy Mutiny of 1857 actually marked the beginning of a new era in Indian history. It was the strongest reason behind the end of the Company’s rule and the transfer of power to the British throne, which happened in the subsequent year.

Various factors however are accounted for the instigation to the revolt. Lord Dalhousie’s policies of annexation of the native states and an ever-increasing discontent among the sepoys, the Indian soldiers appointed by the East India Company, are believed to be two of the most important factors behind the outbreak of the mutiny. Other subsidiary reasons like introduction of western edu…

A Ray of Hope: prison children of Jharkhand

Image
On a usually relaxed March morning at the Ranchi Zoo the visitors suddenly got to see an unusually enthusiastic crowd of juveniles, cheering at every animal, and more unusually, at even the most ordinary of snacks, like peanuts and corns. They did not look like the normal excursion teams from schools. Neither did they look like destitute orphans from remote homes. They looked like as if from some different world…

Thy actually were children from a different world. A mundane, melancholy world that survives in absolute seclusion. They were children of the inmates imprisoned in the jails of Jharkhand. These children have been refused refuge everywhere else, and have no other option but to live in the jails with either of their parents, or both. Some of them were even born inside the jails, and have been spending their childhood ever since in a way most of us would be terrified even to imagine about ourselves, or our own children.

But, as a matter of fact, the only difference between them an…
