Tharangambadi | Nagapattinam _ _ Tharangambadi, formerly Tranquebar (Danish: Trankebar), is a town inthe Mayiladuthurai district of the Indian state of Tamil Nadu on the Coromandel Coast. It lies 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) north of Karaikal, near the mouth of a distributary of the Kaveri River. Tranquebar was established in 1620 as the first Danish trading post in India. King Christian IV had sent his envoy Ove Gjedde who established contact with Raghunatha Nayak of Tanjore. An annual tribute was paid by the Danes to the Rajah of Tanjore until the colony of Tranquebar was sold to the British East India Company in 1845. _ _ Photo credits 📷   @lovelysathish03   _ _ _ _   #tharangambadi     #nagapattinam     #mayiladuthurai     #tamilndaudiaries     #tamilnadufoodie     #art     #beach     #photoshoot     #velankanni     #karaikal     #karaikudi     #tamilnadutourism     #incredible  _india   #travelgram     #chennai     #mahabalipuram     #tranquebar     #coimbatore     #kerala     #keralagram     #nature     #landscapephotography     #India  _Gram #_coi   #natgeoindia     #cntraveller     #madurai     #kanyakumari     #chidambaram     #kodaikanal

This ancient rock carving is called "Arjuna's penance" and is one of the   #UNESCO   World Heritage Sites from   #Mahabalipuram  , India. . I chose this for the keyword, "penance". There is a very well know   #Telugu     #proverb   మంత్రాలకు చింతాయలు రాలవు. Which literally means "no tamarind will fall because of your prayers". If you know what   #tamarind   is, and have seen it, you will easily understand the significance of it. , For those who haven't seen a tamarind tree and what's the significance of this ancient proverb, tamarind fruit, when it is still raw and still hanging from the tree, is particularly tough fruit to pluck as the stalk is particularly strong and fibrous. Strong rains, hails storms don't easily dislodge any fruits. Unlike other fruits. The proverb tries to convey that, certain things require us to act not just pray. . You need stones. Strong arm and a good aim to dislodge a tamarind from the tree. Not prayers. . If you really love your doctor, healthcare professional, or any fellow human, in this time of pandemic, instead of lighting lamps, clapping and clanging utensils because a moron of a leader thinks it helps to fight   #Corona   Virus, please act. Follow the advice of medical professionals. Not morons. If you want to know how well your Moron of Leaders are performing, please ask for statistics of their work to fight the pandemic. The number of   #Covid  -19 test ratio in India is less than 100 per million population. . Tomorrow you might get advice from nations leaders to have "Cow's Urine" as it will be cure for Covid-19 along with the   #prayers  .

L'episodio tratto dal Mahabharata "La discesa della Ganga" (o penitenza di Arjuna), è scolpito su un monolite di granito a Mahabalipuram (Tamil Nadu). Secondo la mitologia legata al Dio Siva, il saggio Bhagirath in posizione yogica prega perché il sacro Gange scenda sulla terra per lavarne i peccati. Per evitare che la sua forza distruttrice abbia un impatto devastante il saggio chiede a Siva di accogliere il fiume sacro sulla sua chioma. La scena centrale è circondata da naga, figure che si bagnano e pregano, divinità fluttuanti in aria e una serie di animali tra cui elefanti, leoni, cerbiatti, scimmie, pesci e rane. Al centro del rilievo la spaccatura mostra la figura di Siva assiso sul serpente. L'altra versione della leggenda tratta dal Mahabharata racconta che l'asceta é Arjuna (abile arcere e uno dei fratelli Pandava) sulle rive del fiume si automortifica per ottenere dagli dei una potenza eccezionale che dovrà usare per sconfiggere i Kaurava l'altra stirpe che si contende il potere dell'intera Bharat (India). Il rilievo fu scolpito per celebrare la vittoria di Narasimhavarman I dei Pallava (630-668 d.C.), dinastia che regnava sulla regione e aveva stabilito il proprio porto a Mahabalipuram pochi chilometri a sud della capitale del regno (Kanchipuram)   #mahabalipuram     #mamallapuram     #mahabharata     #arteindiana     #Tamil   Nadu

The sea is a hungry dog, Giant and grey He rolls on the beach all day. With his clashing teeth and shaggy jaws Hour upon hour he gnaws The rumbling, tumbling stones, And 'Bones, bones, bones, bones! The giant sea-dog moans, Licking his greasy paws. And when the night wind roars And the moon rocks in the stormy cloud, He bounds to his feet and snuffs and sniffs, Shaking his wet sides over the cliffs, And howls and hollos long and loud. But on quiet days in May or June, When even the grasses on the dune Play no more their reedy tune, With his head between his paws He lies on the sandy shores, So quiet, so quiet, he scarcely snores. - James Reeves   #travel     #sunrise  _sunset_photogroup   #sunrise     #mahabalipuram   am   #beach     #beautiful     #sea     #bayofbengal     #mobileclick     #oppo     #oppof7     #mobileshot     #car   ride   #longride     #memories     #nature     #exploretocreate     #indiapictures     #photographers  _of_india   #tamilnadu     #naturephotography     #landscape     #seascape     #seascapephotography     #photooftheday     #outdoors     #nature  _perfection
