  • 🕉 Ardh Kumbh Mela' takes place when the planet Jupiter enters Aquarius and the Sun enters Aries. Ardh Kumbh mela is perhaps the largest religious gathering in any religion around the world. A vast number of people gather at different places and perform different rituals on this day by the banks of different rivers. The name Kumbh Mela consists of two words, the literal meaning of the name of the festival is, "Kumbha" which means a pitcher or a pot. And Mela meaning fair. 🕉 During the churning of the ocean, the demigods and demons fought for the possession of nectar. The Amrita that was produced was placed in a kumbha (pot). To prevent the asuras from seizing the amrita, Divine carrier flew away with the pot and a few drops of it had fallen on to four places that are today known as Prayag, Haridwar, Ujjain, and Nasik. It is believed that these drops gave mystical powers to these places. It is to make oneself gain on those powers that Kumbha Mela has been celebrated. 🕉 A mass pilgrimage, the Kumbh Mela is one of the largest congregation of sages, yogis, ascetics, mendicants, men, women and children on the planet. Millions of people attend the Purna Kumbh Mela, making it the largest gathering anywhere in the world. The Purna Kumbh Mela (Great Kumbh Mela), the most auspicious fair, is held once every 12 years in one particular place - Allahabad (Prayag). But the greatest is the Maha Kumbh Mela which periodically falls every 144 years or after 12 Purna Kumbh Melas, at Allahabad. But every sixth year after a Purna Kumbh Mela sees an Ardh Kumbh Mela taking place. The word "Ardh" stands for "half" and is called so because it is held at the sixth year. 🕉 Sadhus, holy people perform strange and painful to their body tasks for extended period of times on their path of devotion. They believe that by performing these austerities, or Tapasya, their mind will be elevated to higher state. Some hold their arms up for years, some standing babas take a bow not to sit, or lay down for months or years, even while sleeping. Others take a bow not to talk for years!

  • Queen "Crazy Little Thing Called Love" at Live Aid, 1985 - Featuring: Freddie Mercury, age 38 (died 1991 at 45) Brian May, age 37 (now 71) Roger Taylor, age 35 (now 69) John Deacon, age 33 (now 67) - "'Crazy Little Thing Called Love' took me five or ten minutes. I did that on the guitar, which I can't play for nuts, and in one way it was quite a good thing because I was restricted, knowing only a few chords. It's a good discipline because I simply had to write within a small framework. I couldn't work through too many chords and because of that restriction I wrote a good song, I think." - Freddie Mercury, on writing "Crazy Little Thing Called Love

  • "তোমাদের আর এ কি বলবে??? আশীর্বাদ করি তোমাদের সবার চৈতন্য হউক গা, তোমাদের সবার চৈতন্য হউক!!!" ১৮৮৬ সালের ১লা জানুয়ারি, কাশীপুর উদ্যানবাটী, বেলা তখন ৩টে; ভক্তের ভগবান নিজেই এসে ধরা দিলেন গৃহীদের কাছে, সব বাধা, সব নিয়ম দূরে সরিয়ে দিয়ে।।। যেন বললেন, "ওরে!!! তোদের কোথাও যেতে হবেনা, সংসার ছাড়তে হবেনা, তোরা থাক তোদের নিজের জায়গায়; আমি তোদের জন্য আমার সমস্ত অমৃত উজাড় করে দেব; তোদের ঘর - আমার ঠাঁই, যা আছে ভুবনে - তাই তোর ভবনে, যা হোথায় - তাই হেথায়, আমি তোদের জন্য ষোলো আনা করে গেলাম, তোরা এক পয়সা করিস - তাতেই হবে!!!" . যত মত, তত পথ-এর দিশারী হে মহাবৃক্ষ, তুমি আমাদের প্রণাম নাও।।। . "ॐ স্থাপকায় চ ধর্মস্য সর্বধর্মস্বরূপিণে, অবতারবরিষ্ঠায় রামকৃষ্ণায় তে নমঃ।।।" "নমো নমো প্রভু বাক্যমনাতীত মনোবচনৈকাধার, জ্যোতির জ্যোতি উজল হৃদিকন্দর, তুমি তম ভঞ্জন হার।।।" . শুভ কল্পতরু দিবস।।। 😇🙏 . . . #wallart #streetphotography #streetphotographyindia #natgeoindia #ngtindia #incredibleindia #indiapictures #india_gram #yourshot_india #indiaclicks #_soi #storiesofindia #photographers_of_india #indianshutterbugs #desi_diaries #people_infinity #onlyinbengal #wearebengal #streetphotographykolkata #ig_calcutta #streetsofcalcutta #amarkolkata #sokolkata #storiesofkolkata #calcuttacacophony #calcalling #hellokolkata #culture #travel #travelphotography
