YALAGUR HANUMAN KSHETRAM, YALAGUR (KAR)
Also called Speaking Hanuman.
Once, Hanuman was asked by Rama to establish himself in 7 different places. So, swayambhu (self-manifested) murtis of Hanuman emerged and Yalagur is said to be the head of all these 7 murtis.
Later a shrine was built there and even today we can see the unjoined parts in Yalguresh murti.
There is a belief that Yalguresh can tell whether one will succeed in his task or not.

One of the 9 Navagraha kshetram in TamilNadu with Shiva as Divine Doctor. His consort Thayyalnayaki Ambal stands with medicinal oil to cure diseases of the devotees.
The Kshetram is associated with Angaraka/ Chevvai (Mars).
Once, Chevvai/ Angarakan was struck by leprosy. He was cured here by Sri Vaitheeswaran.
People come here to get relief from Chevvai dosham caused by unfavourable position of Mars.
Also here, Shiva cured the injured army of Sri Subramanya during his war with Soorpadaman.
Devotees take bath in the Siddhamruta Theertham Tank to cure them of their diseases, especially skin diseases. It is also called Goksheera (Go is cow n ksheera is milk)Theertham, as Kamadhenu’s milk flowed in this tank when she performed milk abhishekam to the deity here.
It is believed that Rama and Lakshmana cremated Jatayu here.
The Nethrapidi Sandhanam and Thiruchandu Urundai are two of the prasadams which are believed to cure all ailments.
This is the nerve centre for Naadi Josiyam, a popular form of astrology (predictions on palm leaves)
The divine abode of Mallikarjuna Swamy (Jyotirlinga) and Devi Brahmaramba (Shaktipeeth).
When Ganesha was married before Kartikeya, he left in anger to Kraunch mountain. Shiva and Parvati also followed him there.
Shiva assumed the form of Jyotirlinga and resided on the mountain by the name of Mallikarjuna. Mallika means Parvati while Arjuna is another name of Shiva
It is also said that once, a princess Chandravathi, saw a cow shedding milk on a rock resembling a shivlingam.
She started praying to the lingam daily and used to offer jasmine (mallika pushpam) daily. Pleased Shiva appeared before her and agreed to wear jasmine garland (mallika pushpmala) on his head permanently. Since then, Shiva became known as Mallikarjun Swamy.
At this place, Shakti took the form of Bhramaram (bee) to kill Arunasur and settled as Bhramaramba Devi. The place is a Shakti Peeth as the neck portion of Devi Sati fell here.
It is said that by merely seeing the hill, one is emancipated from all his sins and worries.
Known as Dakshin Badri, Thiru Narayanapuram is one of the four famous Swayambu Kshetrams, the other three being Srirangam, Kanchipuram and Tirupati.
The presiding diety is Cheluva Narayana Swamy/ Selva Pillai/ Rama Priyan.
Once, Sri Rama gave his aradhana murthi of Sri Ranganatha, to Raja Vibhishana on his request. So he was left without a murthi for his daily pujas. Brahma is said to have provided the murti of Selva Pillai to Rama who later passed this on to his sons, Lava and Kusa.
When Kusa’s daughter married a Yadava prince, this murthi moved to the lunar dynasty from solar.
It is said that the utsav murthi got the name Selva Pillai due to Sri Ramanuja.
Once, a Sultan took away this murthi and Sri Ramanuja went in its search to the Sultan’s palace.
Also called Chaitra Shukla Ekadashi which is celebrated after Navratri and Ramanavami.
Kamada signifies a grant of desires.
It is believed that observing vrat on this day fulfils worldly desires, cleanses the consciousness and nullifies curses.
Once, an Apsara Lalita and Gandharva Lalit served in the court of Bhagipur king Pundarika. One day due to the absence of his beloved Lalita, Gandharva Lalit could not perform well in the court and Pundarik got annoyed. He cursed Lalit to transform into an ugly demon
Lalita also went after Lalit in sorrow. Years passed and she reached Vindhyachal mountain where she came across Rishi Shringi. He advised her to observe the fast of Kamada Ekadashi.
Lalita observed the vrat with dedication and by Vishnu’s grace, Lalit regained his original form.
The shrine is dedicated to Sri Vishnu along with Devi Lakshmi and Bhoodevi.
It is built in an area full of Champaka trees.
As champaka flowers are offered to Sri Vishnu here, it is called Champakadhama.
It is believed that King Janmejaya had sarpa-dosha. To get rid of it, he took bath in the nearby pond. He emerged with a golden body and sarpa-dosha was also removed. The pond is called Swarnamukhi and believed to have curative powers.
Sri Vishnu murti was consecrated by him.
It is also believed that this forest area was the Dandakaranya where Sri Ram stayed in exile.
Some believe that the original shrine was built by Pandavas.
The pushkarni/pond is emptied once a year so that the rock at the bottom (which has image of Anjaneya) may be worshipped.

We thought Wake of Vultures would land with a splash back in 2015. I went to SIBA, I went to sales conference and spoke w Mario Batali. The book did ok, but not great, was never in Target or the airport, despite amazing reviews. Why? NO IDEA. No one knows! Because publishing. 2/
When you're a new writer, you think that if you just write a great book and do everything you're told to, the book will find its wings and soar. You tick all the checkboxes and wait for the world to love your book. Sometimes, even w publisher support, it just doesn't happen. 3/
As usual, this real talk isn't meant to be a downer. It's meant to let you know that THIS IS NORMAL. Your book can get 3 starred reviews and a blurb from Pat Rothfuss and still not hit list or even gain a steady following. That doesn't make it any less great. 4/
I always say that publishing success = skill + time on task + publisher marketing + luck. And there is NOTHING you can do to up that element of luck. Timing, groundswell, one of the Obama kids reading your book on film. That's out of your hands. So you work on the next book. 5/

Holy $&#%! **Khaled Saffuri** is the source for these Jamal Khashoggi stories? Khaled Saffuri, longtime aide to US al-Qaeda fundraiser Abdurahman Alamoudi (currently in federal prison) and friend of convicted/deported Palestinian Islamic Jihad leader Sami al-Arian?? \U0001f633\U0001f633\U0001f633 pic.twitter.com/BJcklTtFIe— Patrick Poole (@pspoole) October 12, 2018
As Wictor was saying, this was an attempt to frame the Saudis. Guy connected to an AQ terrorist who attempted to ASSASSINATE Mohommad Bin Salman is the *source* for these Kashoggi stories.
If this had been known *from the beginning* we wouldn't have gotte 3 days of media hysteria over an attempt to frame Mohmmad Bin Salman and Saudi Arabia for Kashoggi's disappearance.
The media's MAIN SOURCE for these stories about the disappearance of Khashoggi is an underling of the Al Queda guy that tried to ASSASSINATE the Saudi's Crown Prince Mohammad Bin Salman a few years ago.
The media has been HIDING this until now....
2. Let’s start with how international arrivals are handled. Before flying to #India self-declaration form should be filled out online & Aarogya Setu app installed. #Bengaluru further required Apthamitra & Quarantine watch apps. COVID -ve result is required to reduce quarantine.
3. We(husband & I) both took RT-PCR test 2days before flying & took a hard copy of our -ve certificates. During check in at the #Frankfurt airport our self-declaration forms were checked & phones too to ensure we had installed the required apps. Our contact details were noted.
4. While flying out all restaurants except McDonalds were closed in #Frankfurt airport. Only bakeries were open. Safety enforcement was quite lax even as many lined up at the test center at the airport. There were few hand sanitising stations & no one to enforce mask wearing...
5. & social distancing. Infact, no one at the ticketing office had a mask on. Other than the check-in, there were no other new protocols for international fliers. We went through immigration & boarded just as normal. We flew through #Dubai & the flight to Dubai was mostly empty.
After the death of Kirtivarman, his son Pulakesin II was too young to rule, so his uncle Mangalesa, held sway as regent. But when Pulakesi came of age, Mangalesa did not hand over the kingdom to his nephew and wanted to grab it permanently.
Thereupon, Pulakesin II gathered the army, defeated & killed his uncle in the battle & proclaimed himself king in 609 CE.
He emerged as the greatest king of the Chalukyas. His accession to the throne in the year 609 CE, marks the beginning of an important epoch in the history.
The Chalukyas who remained until then as a local power, confined to Karnataka and Southern Maharashtra, spread over the whole of the Deccan and became paramount sovereigns of the entire peninsula to the South of Vindhyas.
His Aihole inscription narrates his victorious campaigns
and of his great qualities. These included victories against the Kadambas of Banavasi, Alupas and Gangas of Mysore. Dhurvinita the Ganga ruler accepted his overlord ship and even gave his daughter in marriage to Pulakesin II, and she became the mother of Vikramaditya I.
The Latas, Malwas and Gurjaras also offered their submission to him because of their fear of Harshavardhana of Kanauj. After this Pulakesin II defeated the rulers of Kosala, vishnukundins, Kalinga, Pistapura and the Banas of Rayalaseema too.
This #Thread is not to give these jokers undeserved attention but to expose the fraud of this racist pseudo-history.
Many bengalis, even SCs celebrate Durga puja. But actually Durga is a brahminical construct to humiliate our indigenous king Mahisasur. Every SC/ ST should be a proud Asura . Durga Puja is casteism . Say No to Durga puja. pic.twitter.com/sNzhppd9rY— Sankha | \u09b6\u0999\u09cd\u0996 (@BongGalileo) June 6, 2021
1. If Durga Puja story is a myth, so would be the Mahishasur martyrdom story.
2. If Durga Puja story is based on the Brahminical fraud, will Mahishasur martyrdom story break this fraud?
3. History must be rewritten. To appease [email protected]?
4. SC/STs and other [email protected] - [email protected] were systematically oppressed by the Brahmins.
Then how did the Ahoms, Bhils, Marathas, Garos, Khasis, Jats, Gujjar, etc rise?
How did the above create history?
5. The bizzarest of bizzare
Who created this Mahishasura Martyrdom day?
This story was first published in an insignificant Hindi magazine called Yadava Shakti. In 2011, it was published in Forward Press & was used by the AIBSF(All India Backward Student Federation) unit of JNU
The orginal article was made chatpata by adding phrases like 'must be', 'may have been' etc
Forward press is run by a OBC - [email protected]
So who are the real people spreading these pseudo-historical stories? Xtian missionaries and the infamous JNU activists.

Speaking on his @ConHome 'Moggcast': "Some people don't want a leadership vote now, they would like it when the meaningful vote comes up and think that is the time to put in letters."
JRM: "I think the strength of feeling against the meaningful vote is much stronger than the number of letters that has gone in. If there are letters in, very few of those letters will be withdrawn - so the hurdle is much lower when the meaningful vote comes."
He tells @ConHome the apparent failure of the coup could be a blessing in disguise: "In a way it is better that there has been this delay, though I can't pretend that there has been some cunning plan, because we have allowed time for people to see the failures of the policy."
Full report on the delayed coup from @NatashaC on @TheSun now:
In 1989, two members of the group, Morten Harket and Magne Furuholmen were in Switzerland with environmentalist Frederic Hauge, when they came across a hobby-converted Fiat Panda. Stated range: 45 km. They snapped it up and imported it to Norway.
Photo: In Switzerland (Bellona)
On arrival in Norway, the regs didn't accommodate the registration of electric cars so it couldn't legally be driven on the road. Since it had a propane-fuelled heater, just like a motorhome, they registered it as a motorhome.
Moreover, in contrast to petrol cars, diesel cars paid registration fees based on how far they were driven, and our heroes thought this should also apply to electric cars. So the two-seater Swiss-converted Fiat Panda was registered as a diesel motorhome in Norway.
They managed (somehow) to avoid paying the one-off registration fee in 1990, and ever since then electric cars have been exempted this now-substantial fee.

GameStop's three largest shareholders have earned £1.5bn+ during this. They sit at the top of some 200 institutions which are rolling. Meanwhile the ersatz rebels are now watching the bubble, realising there is profit to be made and having a wibble. 3/
No doubt some TRULY believe they are taking part in some kind of revolution but frankly it's utterly absurd and the vast majority are in it for the lulz and to cash in quick.
I'm sorry to tell you this, but you don't own GameStop.
The reality is, the scale of the economic disparity and corruption is simply vast. Billionaires loosing a few millions means nothing. They buy one less yacht and you continue to live meal to meal.

Me : Do you map?
X : Yes
Me : Like this?
X : No. What's that?
Me : A map of a tea shop.
X : Why is that a map?
Me : Long story, all to do with how space has meaning. To keep it short, maps help people to focus on user needs, the components involved, to communicate missing components and scenario play ideas like staff becoming robots.
Me : They’re also good for measuring and managing capital flow, making investment decisions, removing bias and getting rid of duplication.
X : I don’t see how that helps with innovation?
Me : Well, innovation is a tricky word because we use it to describe many things. If you’re talking about differentiation with the adjacent unexplored then you’re experimenting in the “uncharted” space e.g. immortality with magic provided by the special custom built kettle.
X : That sounds like nonsense.
Me : A lot of what people think will be the next great innovation is nonsense. Actually, most of it is. That’s the nature of the uncharted space, it’s experimental, high risk and generally results in failure.
X : We need more reliable innovation.
1/ It's no secret that a site's “performance” is a ranking factor for search.
But how does Google actually measure it?
Well, open up Chrome DevTools, click the ”Audits” tab, then ”Run Audits” and you'll see that “Performance” is made up from 6 metrics.
2/ Most casuals assume that performance is all about how fast a site displays on the screen — “First Meaningful Paint”.
But if you look at Google's weights you'll see that “Time to Interactive” — how long it takes for a site to become interactive — is far more important.
3/ Essentially, Google prioritises “interactivity” over “visibility”.
Even if your page appears fast, 3rd party scripts loading in the background (delaying user interaction) will see you penalised.
4/ One example of this is @ToDesktop.
Their site content loads in < 1s, but run it through a Google Audit and its “Time to Interactive” is 8.8s.
