Dedicated to Naag Devta Vasuki. The five-headed Naga Devta is visited by devotees, especially on Sundays when special Pooja is performed offering milk and turmeric to the deity.
Two nagas- Darnendran and Padmavati are dwarapalaks here.
Once a village girl was cutting grass in the area when she noticed blood oozing out of her axe after accidentally hitting a stone. It was the stone murti of Naga devta. A hut was built around it. Later Raja Marthanda Verma visited here when he was suffering from skin problems.
His disease was cured and he built a huge mandir here.
The main sanctum still has mud walls and thatched roof with the stone murti of Nagaraja placed on the soil. The soil underneath it always remains wet. It is believed that blood is still oozing out of the murti till date.
It is said that this soil holds special powers and can cure any skin ailments; the soil is also given as prasadam to the visitors of the mandir.
Amazingly, the soil is black in dakshinayana punyakala and turns white in uttarayana punyakala of Surya.
A tortoise occupies the place (instead of Garuda) on the flagpost. This maybe because Garuda and Naga are natural enemies. Also, Sri Vishnu took kurma avatar during samudra manthan. Image of tortoise maybe to show respect to kurma avatar.
Nagalinga flowers also bloom here.

Mandir dating back to Pallava period. Dedicated to Murugan. After vanquishing Soorapadman at Tiruchendur, Skanda destroyed the rest of the Rakshasas here at Tirupporur ('place of the sacred war').
Sthalapurana says that here, Murugan with his consorts Valli and Devayanai granted protection to devas and expounded the meaning of Pranava to Agastya Muni.
Skanda worshipped Shiva as Vanmeekeswarar to rid himself of the sin of having killed Soorapadman.
The founding guru of Thiruporur was Srimad Chidambaraswamy who was an ardent worshipper of "Madurai Meenakshi Amman". In a vision, Devi bade him to build a mandir for Sri Muruga at Thiruporur. He unearthed the Swayambu murtis of Muruga with his consorts and established the Mandir
The swayambhu murti of Muruga is in the form of a palmyra tree. Beneath it is the murti of Muruga in Brahmasasta form with his consorts on both sides. It is said that the small murtis were made by Chidambaram Swamigal for performing abhisheka and aradhana.

In this thread, I'll help you work out how much money you need to retire.
The goal is simple.
You want to accumulate a *large* portfolio of assets.
Well, you should be able to quit your job. And you and your family should be able to live comfortably for decades -- just off of the income generated by this portfolio.
This is the crux of the "FIRE" movement.
FIRE stands for "Financially Independent, Retired Early".
The basic philosophy is: keep your spending needs low. Save a large portion of your income. Invest these savings. With luck, you'll be able to retire early.
FIRE advocates have a rule they love to cite: the 4% rule.
The 4% rule says: your annual expenses in retirement should not exceed 4% of your portfolio.
You can use this rule to calculate how large a portfolio you need to accumulate before you can quit your job and retire.
For example, suppose you and your family need $40K/year to live comfortably in retirement.
Then you need to accumulate a portfolio that's at least $1M.
Another way to say this is: your portfolio should be at least 25 times your annual expenses in retirement.

In the 1990s, a maverick breast surgeon at @TataMemorial (fresh from his return from the UK) stepped up to do research. Now, to understand the situation, you should go back 30 years, when research was not as big as it is now, and certainly not from surgeons.
Surgeons, and especially cancer surgeons, were renowned for their technical prowess, and their sheer bravado – "wherever the cancer, however advanced, I will take it out". So, our surgeon-researcher was ridiculed for even attempting clinical research
For a surgeon, he couldn’t have chosen a worse topic to research on: early detection; nothing to do with surgery, or even treatment. Remember, this was the 1990s. Cowboy surgery was celebrated, and research ridiculed
Being a breast surgeon, he was troubled with women consistently coming with advanced cancers, and he set out to see if he could work on picking them up at an earlier stage. But community-based early detection needs money, and he just didn’t have it.

We hosted this on Zoho's own event platform with our home grown audio-video framework, a combination of @ZohoBackstage, @ZohoShowTime and @zohomeeting.
I will explain this.
2/ One year ago, our audio-video frameworks were not ready. As the pandemic struck, we realized we were behind in AV tech.
In March 2020, we redoubled our R&D efforts. I told our engineers we will invest in this however long it takes and produce a world-class platform.
3/ We transferred engineers from other projects to the AV teams. At first the progress was frustratingly slow, as it often happens in R&D, with frequent setbacks. I told our engineers to persist.
We used our own products and diligently reported issues encountered to engineers.
4/ Then by Oct 2020, we started to improve and we could see visible progress. Yet, running an online event entirely on our platform was a dream.
Today, we have concluded a successful event, due to painstaking efforts from our engineers and our events team who stood by them.🙏
5/ This is a classic example of R&D that I often mention. We need a lot more of this across the industrial landscape in India. The private sector must get into R&D with passion and religious devotion.
Company leadership must patiently stand by engineers so they can excel.

#Bonds #BondYields #StockMarket #Investing
What is #bond ?
Bonds are issued by governments and corporations when they want to raise money. By buying a bond, investor is giving the issuer a loan, and issuer agrees to pay the investor back the face value of the loan on a specific date, and to pay periodic interest as well.
What is bond yield ?
Bond yield, on the other hand, is the return that an investor gets on that bond or on a particular government security.
#Investing #StockMarket #Bonds
Relation between #InterestRates, #BondYield and #BondPrice :
A fall/rise in interest rates in an economy pushes up/pulls down bond prices. However, bond yields fall/rise in this situation.
Effect of Bond Yields on Economy & #StockMarket :
Rise in bond yields denotes higher interest rates in economy. This increases borrowing costs for companies & consumers. This ultimately reduces overall demand in economy & negatively impacts #StockMarket.

What you call chaos I call spontaneity.
A regimented life is like a heartbeat that's non-chaotic; it's a system that’s too ordered. It doesn't have any life to it. And real life has lots of ups and downs, some of them very extreme.
I over-plan, but planning is pretty useless. What tends to dominant life are a small number of Black Swan events in both directions, positive and negative.
Expose yourself to asymmetric upside and lots of good options: things that can become massively important for you.
And you want to avoid the asymmetric downside: anything that can end the game, whether it's through financial ruin, or reputational ruin, or physical ruin.
That requires a certain amount of chaos and spontaneity.
If nothing else, 2020 taught the power of optionality.
We think about planning as linear and controlled, but that's not how the world around us works anymore.
The world is dominated by nonlinearities, so understanding options value is far more important.

Holy grail- A strategy Which can make money all the time.
After going through two phases of a traders journey, the initial success phase, and Only why do i get loss phase, Traders enter the third phase -
THE SEARCH FOR THE HOLY GRAIL PHASE.
This phase has no limits, It can end in 1 month and it may not end till lifetime.
What exactly is this phase?
When a trader covers all the basics, they know how to lower their losses, they know the power of risk management.
And few of them may even develop their edges and systems over time.
But after some time, they feel that they are doing something wrong and there is more to trading than what they know.
THEN COMES THE HOLY GRAIL PART-
Few of them start to Read more books about trading,finding articles about “How to win 100% of the time” and listening to Youtube videos of few big traders who make big in trading.

Cherthala Karthyayani Temple Prathishta was done by Vilwamangalam Swamy. Chertala Pooram is very famous. Devi is Mangalya Dayini here removes obstacles relating to marriages. Sthala Puranam says that, once 👇
Vilwamangalam Swamiyar was passing this area after Prathista of Padmananbhaswamy Temple, he felt Devi chaitanyam and recognized as Karthyayani Devi. But Devi seeing Vilwamangalam went inside the pond. Swamy searched for Devi continously for 6 days and on 7th day Vilwamangalam
got hold of Devi's hair. Thus only Devi's head is Prathishta here. Devotees do Kozhi parathal ( offering cock) here as an offering to Karthyayani Devi.
With the Tanden nomination, we are watching congressional Republicans put Don Draper's advice into effect.
They supported a profoundly corrupt, cruel, vituperative, and generally immoral and unethical president at the head of an inept and unethical administration. They knew it!
But of course those senators never said so. They were scared and they were shamed. Maybe they stopped some bad things - or at least they tell themselves they did. But the experience had to have been profoundly humiliating for almost all of them. And these are not humble people.
So how do they cope? They follow Don Draper's advice. "It never happened."
The Tanden nomination is the opportunity to rev the pretense loud and fast.
The lady was occasionally indecorous! Even ... sometimes ... untoward. We can't have THAT in the US government!
Hypocritical is not really the word to describe this behavior. It's more a kind of post-traumatic coping mechanism, a denial of the radical abuse that they also suffered, along with US allies worldwide, people of integrity in govt service, and so many bereaved American families
