“யாளி/ஆளி/Yazhi/Yali/Vidala/Vyala the furious animals of kumari kandam (Lemuria continent)”🗺🗾🌬🌀🐗🐘🐐🐕🐅🐎🚶😉…

Yazhi was a furious animal which has a size of four elephants and Ancient Thamizh people classified Yazhi into different typed:Magara Yazhi(Goat faced yazhi)Chimma Yazhi(lion faced yazhi)Manusha Yazhi(Nir yazhi)Nai Yazhi(Shvana yazhi)Kudura Yazhi(Ashva yazhi)Yanai Yazhi(elephant faced yazhi)

Mostly yazhi was natural habitat of Kumari kandam that is Lemuria, Kumari kandam(continent) which is situated at the bottom of the equator and it connects.India,Srilanka,Madagascar and Australia.

Those days yazhi were controlled and grown by Ancient Tamil people who ruled Lemuria continent. They trained yazhi to fight in wars.Yazhi are the very furious animals which is very large animals ever lived in the world.They was also able to fly…And suddenly there was a long wave which washed and drowned the whole continent, But Yazhi were migrated to Tamilnadu and Srilanka but due to loss of their natural habitat they were dead.

Still now we could find the sculptures of yazhi in temple entrance…and also in pillars…some found in stone carvings in numerous temples in south India.

Menstruation is sacred beautiful lunar ancient holy female power 💢…

I believe at least some of us will agree to the fact that the menstrual cycle is a natural process which is linked with a women’s body.Still many of us follow restrictions during our menstrual cycle.

The freedom of women is not continues to be in the hands of them.

Very few cultures across the world have acknowledged menstruating is a natural phenomenon.

Different part of India had notions of the menstruating goddess.

In punjab ,it is believed that mother earth slept for a week each month.

In some part of Deccan after the ‘navaratri’ goddesses temples were closed from the tenth to the full moon day while she rests and refreshes herself.

In Malabar,mother earth was believed to rest during the hot weather until she got the first shower of rain.

In kamakhya temple of Assam and in other parts of Orissa,the rituals of goddess are celebrated during the monsoon.

The menstrual cycle is seen as a special gift and when a girl would menstruate for the first time,it would be celebrated in public.

But this again is a problematic view as the menstual cycle was seen as a boon for reproduction.

Even when people celebrate it in public they have a reductionist view that a women’s ultimate goal in life is reproduction.

DÈJÁ VU❓🙄🎞…..

Déjà vu is the feeling that one has lived through the present situation. In simple words Déjà vu means literally as already seen.

Its a paranormal context but scientific approach rejects the explanation of déjà vu as precognitive it means a form of a extrasensory perception.

What Déjà vu is?

Déjà vu is that there is a split second delay in transferring information from one side of the brain to the other.one side of the brain would then get the information twice,so the person would sense that the event had happened before.

Déjà vu is like things that you’ve already experienced…

Déjà vu is experienced mostly by the healthy brain people who are exhausted or stressed tend to experience déjà vu more…

For example:If you are travelling to a historical monuments like palace and suddenly it seems as if you have been in that very spot before but you have not before…

There are different theories as to why déjà vu happens…

Swiss scholar Arthur funkhouser describes the first theory as déjà visits it means already visited .

Second theory as déjà vecu it means already experienced or lived through.

Scientists have yet to find a complete explanation for déjà vu.

“Rhnull /Golden blood-The rarest blood type on earth😱”…

The term RH was originally an abbreviation of Rhesus factor.It was discovered in 1961 in Australia.It is the blood type contains similar antigen found in rhesus monkey red blood cells.

It was subsequently learned the human factor is not identical to the rhesus monkey factor.

When it comes to blood types, you may know A, AB, B, and O-but those larger groups actually contain millions of different varieties. That’s because the surface of our blood cells are coated with antigens—up to 342 of them. And in 1961, scientists stumbled upon a new blood type they thought it is impossible one called Rh-null,its lacking all 61 antigens in the Rh system. In the 49 years that followed, only 43 people on the planet had been IDed as Rh-null. There are fewer than 10 active Rh-null blood donors in the world.

Rh-null blood can be accepted by anyone with a rare blood type in the Rh system, making it the golden blood,You would not imagine how difficult it is when you have to import or export rare blood.

“The history of Human Zoo”🗿😱…

It sounds unbelievable,but many decades ago,some zoos kept human beings on display…..

During the late 19th and early 20th centuries,the shocking display of human beings of various ethnicities was in displayed in the West, especially in the colonial empires of Great Britain, France, and Germany. One of the factors contributing to the popularity of these human zoos was that they exhibited exotic peoples from different parts of the world, which had great appeal to the masses during that period.

Ancient Beginnings to a Shameful Act

Although the human zoo is a recent phenomenon, its roots can be traced much further and began with the artistic display of exotic peoples from other kingdoms. In the tomb of the Nineteenth Dynasty pharaoh Seti I in Egypt there is a mural depicting the four different races of the world Egyptian, Libyan, Asiatic, and Nubian. This display of foreigners is also seen in the art of the Achaemenid Empire. At Persepolis, one of the Achaemenid capitals, all the peoples under the empire’s rule were depicted in reliefs that adorn the North and East Stairs of the Apadana. The subjects of the empire are shown bringing tribute to the Achaemenid king.

Artistic displays then evolved into real displays as victorious Roman . This was meant to show Rome’s victory over its enemies and to appeal to the curiosity of the people who were eager to see the strange people from other lands. Some of the most famous captives who were displayed during a Roman triumph included Cleopatra Selene II, Alexander Helios, and Ptolemy Philadelphus the children of Mark Antony and Cleopatra

How Human Zoos Evolved

During the Age of Exploration, Spanish and Portuguese explorers would often bring back foreign plants, animals, and even people, to prove that their voyages were a success. These displays were only exhibited at the royal courts.

During the 17th and 18th centuries, having servants of non-European descent was a sign of a European wealth.

Things changed at the beginning of the 19th century. Between 1810 and 1815, a South African woman by the name of Saartjie Baartman pejoratively known as the Hottentot Venus was displayed in London and Paris as a ‘freak show’. This was the first modern instance that a foreign individual was displayed for the entertainment of the European masses and served as a precursor for the human zoos which were called ‘ethnological expositions’.

A caricature of Saartjie Baartman, called the Hottentot Venus. Born to a Khoisanfamily, she was displayed in London in the early 19th century.

During the first half of the 19th century, foreign individuals were displayed at fairs and carnivals in which other ‘freak shows’ were exhibited. During this period, emphasis was placed on the difference between the foreigners and the European public. The distinction between normal and abnormal was replaced by one of civilized and savage during the second half of the century, as a result of New Imperialism.

A group of Aboriginals captured in Australia and put on tour throughout Europe and America in the PT Barnum & Bailey circus shows of ‘human curiosities’, where they were portrayed as fierce savages and cannibals….

As the European powers began to establish colonies across the world, especially in Africa , there was growing appetite among the public back home for displays of the conquered peoples, who were perceived as less civilized than themselves. European governments were more than ready to proceed this demand and native villages were featured at most international fairs and expositions held during that period. The display of savage foreigners in human zoos, however, was not limited to Europe alone. In the United States, for instance, the St. Louis World’s Fair held in 1904 boasted a number of living exhibits, including more than 1000 Filipinos from a dozen of tribes placed in recreated villages. In Japan, an exhibition of Koreans, who were portrayed as cannibals, was organized in 1903, seven years prior to the Japanese colonization of Korea.

Human Zoos Come to an End

Human zoos began to lose their popularity as the 20th century progressed. One of the last instances of the phenomenon occurred in 1958, at the World’s Fair in Brussels, where a Congolese Village was featured. Towards their end, human zoos were criticized as degrading, racist, and unethical, but these criticisms did not seem to cause this phenomenon to lose its appeal…..

“Introverts are a person predominantly concerned with their own thoughts and feelings rather than with external things.” It is said that Introverts are socially anxious but it is not true .If you are an introvert, then you will know about the qualities of an introvert.

Introvert just don’t handle social situations as most people do. Introvert are nothing like social anxiety or shyness.Its a personality trait which focuses on internal feelings rather than external sources of stimulation. Being an introvert doesn’t mean that we are shy or socially anxious.

Introverts are good listeners they listen before they speak.They take some mental notes before they speak in any social situations. This is the reason they enter any conversation confidently without stumbling over words.

Introverts are self sufficient so they do not depend on anyone.They think it is to be foolish to depend upon others for material needs.Because of this attitude and mind set they tackle any situation which comes to the mind.They usually don’t need much to feel happy and content.They would rather stay at home and enjoy a book or a music which calm our mind anything that makes them comfortable this makes them stress-free.

They know how to recharge themself and make full use of the energies.They believe that knowledge is the only way to gain poor.They are highly interested in the things that catch their attention. So introvert want to learn everything as much as they can.Due to this eagerness they become expert in their field.Introverts are considered to be quiet,but it is not because they do not like people.They don’t want to spend their day in shallow conversation.

Introverts are good at paying attention, they stay focus even in the most uncomfortable situations.They have the ability to ignore things on their surrounding and just focus with their inner world.If they can just enjoy their hobbies and interests without any distraction.They value their alone time ,enjoying a peaceful nature walk,watching favourite movie,reading a book or listening to music so on….It helps them to recharge quickly.They enjoy to became as a writer, programmer, graphic designer or a artist etc…

These are the few qualities often seen in Introverts I could write these qualities because i feel proud to be a intervert.I believe that after reading these article your own thoughts regarding the introvert may change.

As i said we are considered to be silent but we are soaring.

We may be quiet but don’t underestimate our powers.

If you find us sitting alone don’t feel sorry for us…because we travel through our imagination .It gives us wings to fly.

“History of May day/workers day/Labours day celebration “👮👷💂👲🔧🚀💉💼✒

May day is a may 1 celebration with a long and varied history,dating back to millennia.

In 19th century, May day took on a meaning,as on international worker’s day and grew out of the 19th century movement for labour rights for an eight-hour work day in United states.

May day got its start as an international distress call in 1923.It was made official in 1948.It was the idea of Fredericks Mockford,who was a senior radio offer at croyd on Airport in London.He came up with the idea for “may day” because it sounded like the French word maider, which means “help me”.

May day,celebrated on may 1 every year has its roots in ancient pagan festivals marking the beginning of summer.Ancient celts called it Beltaine which is still celebrated today.

May day is also called as International Workers’ Day since the 1880s.May Day is the equivalent of America’s Labour Day for certain countries.

On May 1, 1886, hundreds of thousands of U.S. industrial workers participated in a nationwide strike to demand an eight-hour workday. At the time, it was common to work 10 to 16 hour a days, according to Industrial Workers of the World.The protests in Chicago lasted for several days, and on May 3, a strike at McCormick Reaper Works ended in a brawl with police officers. Several strikers were wounded or killed. These protests also changed the world for workers everywhere.

The next night, the violence became even worse. When police came to break up a crowd of protestors gathered in Haymarket Square, a bomb went off in the police ranks. The bomb killed seven policemen and wounded 60 more. Police then opened fire on the crowd, killing and wounding several men.

It is also called as Haymarket Affair, the International Socialist Conference declared May 1 as an international holiday for labor. That’s why the world sees not only celebrations of warmer weather on the first day of May.

The first may day celebration in India was organized in madras by the labor kissan party of Hindustan on 1st may in 1923.This was the first time the red flag was used in India.The party leader Singaravel chettiar made arrangements to celebrate May day in two places in 1923.

The journey of human civilization highlights the importance of labour.Often we find the work hard and unpleasant, but we have to do it.We have no way except hard work to realise our dream.

Labour not only gives us pleasure,it also keeps us engaged and healthy. It helps to make us fit and active.

Notice is going to stop success to happen when a proper amount of labour has been put into it…

Few examples of a working communities.

“A seller”

“A cobbler ”

“A Labours in construction ”

“A Daily wagers”

“A labours in bricks factory”

“A farmers in the agricultural land”

“A Daily wagers”

“A workers in the wielding shops”

A massive respect to Daily labours who work hard to meet their expenses.They play a major role to create a peaceful society.
