We see so many movies depicting different styles of “kung-fu, karate, Tae Kwon Do, Tai-chi, mixed martial arts” etc but have we ever wondered where it all must have begun? At first thought it is obvious that a person may think it began in the Asian country of China as the sport is most popular there but the truth is stranger than fiction.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">The seeds of martial art were first sown in the country of cultural diversity, India in the backwater state of Kerala. Historic evidence suggests that Kalaripayattu in Kerala is one of the oldest form of martial art and the root of all other forms of martial art.</span><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">The Kerala Kalaripayattu form of martial art deals with grappling, strikes, kicks, weaponry and healing methods making it one of the most deadly forms of martial art.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">This form of martial art was first brought into practice during the 11th century when the wars between the Chera dynasty and Chola dynasty were taking place. The pioneer of this form of martial art is considered to be the sage Parasurama and later the “Nayakanmar” who with the advent of time came to be known as “Nayars” are said to be given charge of the trainings. To learn the art form of Kalari one needs to be initiated into the “Gurukul” first. The “Gurukul” is the centre for learning this sacred and ancient form of martial art.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">The initiation rite first begins with the student entering into the premises with his right foot first entering into the threshold with the presence of a senior student or “gurukkal” and then touching the ground with his right hand followed by his head touching the ground as a sign of respect.</span><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">&nbsp;He then is led into room called as “Guruthara” where lamps are burnt in memory and respect of the masters of the art where he burns some lamps as tribute and reverence to the masters.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">This is followed by the novice offering some money in between betel leaves as “dakshina” to the guru who teaches the art. He then touches his feet and bows at his master’s feet as a sign of respect to which the teacher places his hand on the pupils head and blesses him. This act of bowing to the master, the Guruthara and the puttara is done everyday as a sign of respect and submission to the guru, the art and the gods.</span><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">After the initiation the novice is led into training of the martial art which he must sincerely practice.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: &quot;arial&quot; , &quot;helvetica&quot; , sans-serif;">In Kerala martial art was once lost but the recent times have seen the revival of this great sport.

It is often compared to Switzerland and with its lush, green mountains and cool breeze and impressive Buddhist temples, it is indeed a place that one should not miss out on. Gangtok, the capital is a place that is inhabited by mostly people of Nepali and Tibetan origin.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">It is one of the cleanest, most orderly and well planned cities in the country. The people of the state of Sikkim take great pains to keep the city clean and green. The enforcement of traffic laws is one of the most stringent in the nation and that has earned it the reputation of being of the most popular and liked cities that one can visit in the holidays. Gangtok tours include a visit to the many interesting places that it is famous for.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">So what are some of the cool places that one can check out when in Gangtok? The Kanchenjunga National park is one the largest national wildlife parks that are in the country. It is a place that would give you a fantastic view of the snow capped mountains and most people make treks here in order to witness the wonderful sights that you could capture especially during the early mornings and the evenings.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">This tour would also include a trip to the Zemu Glacier. In addition to being a national wildlife park, it is also a biosphere reserve. Also located in this area is the wonderful Zemu Glacier. Sikkim is religious in most senses and it is mostly Buddhist, Hindu and Christian.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">There are a lot of monasteries that are spread across the state and one of the most famous ones is the Enchey Monastery. It was established way back in the beginning of the 20th century and is located towards the north of Gangtok. History goes that there was a tantric master who lived there and was renowned for his power of flying.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">This monastery is known to have been blessed by him. His name is Lama Druptob Karpo. It is an interesting place to be especially if you like dances because there is a dance that’s called Chaam which is performed here. The dance takes place mostly in January.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">If you want to know more about the history of Gangtok and Sikkim in general then you must visit the Namgyal Institute of Tibetology. It explains the history of the Tibetan settlement that live in Sikkim and their community traditions, culture, religion, etc.</span><br /><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">&nbsp;There is also a lot of information about Buddhism. In addition to that there are various artifacts, sculptures, and books that are available here for display and for sale as well.&nbsp;</span><br /><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><br /></span><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">The summer months are good for Sikkim if you like the rain and if you can’t take the cold so much. The winter months, on the other hand, can be freezing cold so avoid the months of December and January if you do not like the cold. The best time to visit would be September or October.&nbsp;</span></div>vicky kumarhttps://plus.google.com/111391268264907796379noreply@blogger.com0tag:blogger.com,1999:blog-5153289524892251653.post-35459791040121611522015-05-29T07:42:00.001-07:002015-05-29T07:42:23.949-07:00How can enjoy your time in a zoo?<div dir="ltr" style="text-align: left;" trbidi="on"><div class="separator" style="clear: both; text-align: center;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-qgl3x8ennps/VWh6uZ_YnyI/AAAAAAAAKjY/5WluQuPI5G8/s1600/885741933_L3oPo-M.jpg" imageanchor="1" style="clear: right; float: right; margin-bottom: 1em; margin-left: 1em;"><img border="0" height="213" src="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-qgl3x8ennps/VWh6uZ_YnyI/AAAAAAAAKjY/5WluQuPI5G8/s320/885741933_L3oPo-M.jpg" width="320" /></a></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom: 0.0001pt; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">Remember going to zoo when you were a little kid, enjoying a beauty with your innocence</span></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom: 0.0001pt;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">smile</span></div><a name='more'></a><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">, but never had a brain to understand their tail of existence and importance, all you looked for was amusement and fun and that being a lovely part of your venture.<o:p></o:p></span><br /><div class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom: 0.0001pt; text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom: 0.0001pt; text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom: 0.0001pt; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">Give yourself a chance again to explore an innocence of beauty and forget about how old you are just walk a way to a safe distance of&nbsp;<b><u>Nehru Zoological Park</u></b>, where you had already made your debut when you were a little kid and as the time moved on even a zoo are celebrating a mark of golden jubilee.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom: 0.0001pt; text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom: 0.0001pt; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">Reasons why you must pay a visit to a&nbsp;<b><u>zoological park</u></b>&nbsp;are numerous, but some of the ardent reason why you must mark your presence to explore a beauty of zoological park is.<o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom: 0.0001pt; text-align: justify;"><br /></div><div align="center" class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom: 0.0001pt; text-align: center;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;"><a href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-TSDZYIf_JuU/Und7_LmpjYI/AAAAAAAAFUg/9EV48PtovdI/s1600/living-desert-zoo-gardens.jpg"><span style="color: blue; text-decoration: none;"><v:shapetype coordsize="21600,21600" filled="f" id="_x0000_t75" o:preferrelative="t" o:spt="75" path="m@4@5l@4@11@9@11@9@5xe" stroked="f"> <v:stroke joinstyle="miter"> <v:formulas> <v:f eqn="if lineDrawn pixelLineWidth 0"> <v:f eqn="sum @0 1 0"> <v:f eqn="sum 0 0 @1"> <v:f eqn="prod @2 1 2"> <v:f eqn="prod @3 21600 pixelWidth"> <v:f eqn="prod @3 21600 pixelHeight"> <v:f eqn="sum @0 0 1"> <v:f eqn="prod @6 1 2"> <v:f eqn="prod @7 21600 pixelWidth"> <v:f eqn="sum @8 21600 0"> <v:f eqn="prod @7 21600 pixelHeight"> <v:f eqn="sum @10 21600 0"> </v:f></v:f></v:f></v:f></v:f></v:f></v:f></v:f></v:f></v:f></v:f></v:f></v:formulas> <v:path gradientshapeok="t" o:connecttype="rect" o:extrusionok="f"> <o:lock aspectratio="t" v:ext="edit"></o:lock></v:path></v:stroke></v:shapetype><v:shape alt="https://images-blogger-opensocial.googleusercontent.com/gadgets/proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F2.bp.blogspot.com%2F-TSDZYIf_JuU%2FUnd7_LmpjYI%2FAAAAAAAAFUg%2F9EV48PtovdI%2Fs320%2Fliving-desert-zoo-gardens.jpg&amp;container=blogger&amp;gadget=a&amp;rewriteMime=image%2F*" href="http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-TSDZYIf_JuU/Und7_LmpjYI/AAAAAAAAFUg/9EV48PtovdI/s1600/living-desert-zoo-gardens.jpg" id="Picture_x0020_213" o:button="t" o:spid="_x0000_i1026" style="height: 179.25pt; mso-wrap-style: square; visibility: visible; width: 240pt;" type="#_x0000_t75"> <v:fill o:detectmouseclick="t"> <v:imagedata o:title="proxy?url=http%3A%2F%2F2.bp.blogspot.com%2F-TSDZYIf_JuU%2FUnd7_LmpjYI%2FAAAAAAAAFUg%2F9EV48PtovdI%2Fs320%2Fliving-desert-zoo-gardens" src="file:///C:\Users\global\AppData\Local\Temp\msohtmlclip1\01\clip_image001.jpg"></v:imagedata></v:fill></v:shape></span></a><o:p></o:p></span></div><div class="MsoNormal" style="margin-bottom: 0.0001pt; text-align: justify;"><span style="font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;">Understand a beauty of nature as the area around would be filled with a beauty of green which would offer you a&nbsp;<b><u>natural beauty</u></b>&nbsp;of habituates living inside a zoo.
