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)
This facing the sun phenomenon is called HELIOTROPISM.
We might already know this, but there is another fact that we apparently do not know!
Have we ever wondered what happens on cloudy and rainy days when the sun is completely covered by clouds?
This is an interesting question. Isn’t it?
Perchance we think the sunflower withers or turns its head towards the ground. Is this what crossed your mind?
Well, that’s incorrect!
This is what happens...
*They turn towards each other to share their energy.*
Nature’s perfection is amazing. Now let’s apply this reflection to our lives. Many people may become low spirited, and the most weak ones, sometimes, become depressed.
How about following the example of the beautiful sunflowers 🌻i.e. *"Supporting and empowering each other"*.
Nature has so much to teach us.
Wishing everyone a "Sunflower"🌻 trait of turning towards each other on the cloudy and gloomy days.
*Spread some goodness...it will come back to you multifold*.😊🙏

Simple and effective way 2 make Money
Idea 1:- Use pivot level like 14800 in case of nifty and sell 14800straddle monthly expiry (365+335) exit if nifty closes on daily basis below S1 or above R1
After closing below S1 if it closes above S1 next day or any day enter the same position again vice versa for R1
Idea2:- Use R1 and S1 corresponding strikes multiple
Incase of R1 15337 take 15300ce
N in case of S1 14221 use 14200pe
Sell both and hold till expiry or exit if nifty closes below S1 or above R1 around closing
If the same bounces above S1 and falls below R1 re-enfer same strikes
Use same criteria for nifty, usdinr and banknifty
(This is must)Use this margin rule for 1lot banknifty pair keep 4Lax margin
For nifty one lot keep 3Lax
For usdinr 100lots keep 4Lax
I bet you if you do this on consistent basis your ROI will be more than 70% on yearly basis.

When Saudi Arabia's King visited India in 1955, PM Nehru ordered all the Hindu Temples and Idols of Hindu Deities that came in Saudi King's way to be covered up.
Our temples are the architectural marvels in their own league.
Each of our temples tells the story of our rich history and cultural heritage. Was Nehru that ashamed of his own nation's heritage that he had to cover them up or there was some other reason? The answer would be best known to him only.
PM Nehru invited the then Saudi King Saud bin Abdul Aziz to India who accepted the invitation and planned a 17 day long official visit to India in 1955. Saudi King had brought a large delegation with him and he had to visit various Indian cities like Mumbai, Hyderabad, Agra,
Aligarh, Shimla, Mysore and Varanasi. However, when Saudi King reached Varanasi, Nehru ordered to cover all the temples and Idols with curtains that came in the way of the Royal Convoy. During his stay in Varanasi, Govt buildings were painted with the words "Kalma Tayyiba".
'Kalma Tayyiba' means 'There is not God but only Allah and Mohammed is his messenger'. In addition to it, Pooja and Aartis were also stopped at temples. I can call it the appeasement politics of the highest order and Nehru was indeed the greatest appeaser of all times.

I don’t care if you are a real Hindu, Hindu in name only, Abrahamic or atheist.
Hindu festivals ARE NOT an opportunity for your propaganda.
We won’t take it lightly anymore and give back.
You want a waterless holi, we will demand a bloodless Eid.
You want a green Deepāvali, we will demand a green tree-less Christmas.
And worse, HINOs, if you want to use our festivals to make your secular mark and curry favor with the left be warned. You will be exposed.
Don’t care if you can hit or throw or catch a ball better than billion people.
Don’t care if you can run around trees like a monkey with heroines for two and a half hours.
Don’t give a dang if you are an industrialist.
Hindu Civilization is bigger than all of you.
If you think your professional success or financial success gives you a perch to lecture to Hindus how we should celebrate our festivals you are mistaken.
You life is not even worth one billionth of a grain of a sand in the whole world compared to our civilization
If you don’t want to celebrate, fine. Don’t.
But don’t lecture us how we should. Hindu wallets and hard earned money built your careers. We can take it down.
Ask Padukone what happened to Chhappak. That is the result of messing with Spirit of patriotic Indians.

1. Career Objective - When you start your CV off with a Career Objective, it shifts the focus away from what YOU can do / why they should hire you / what problem you can solve.
Most career objectives are generic and only provide the reader with what YOU are seeking or looking for. "Seeking a role that will enable me to utilise my skills within a growing company". Sound familiar?
Do not make the intro about what you want, but rather what makes you the best candidate in relation to the role you're applying for. The only time I would include a Career Objective is when you're making a career pivot. (I'll touch on this later).
2. Personal Information - This includes your Home Address, ID Number, number of dependents, health info, date of birth, marital status, religion, etc. What else am I missing?

When India got independence, West Bengal was a role model state, and the industrial capital of the nation. It was reflected in the statistics as well, with Bengal regularly securing either 1st or 2nd rank in per capita income..
throughout the 1950s and early 1960s (its closest competitor was Maharashtra). Even in terms of human development indicators like literacy, healthcare, etc, Bengal was always in top 3. But in mid 1960s, something changed.
Surprisingly, high literacy which was supposed to be a boon, started turning out to be a double edged sword, as most of the well educated intellectuals in Bengal gradually started opening up to Karl Marx's ideologies i.e. Communist agenda.
Suddenly, the same industries which helped them gain literacy and better living standards, began to be looked down upon as enemies of humanity, because Marx said so. The menace of labour strikes were on the rise, and entrepreuners were portrayed as villains.
Here is one quick example to illustrate the point. Mr Birla, who was admired globally for his business acumen, was dragged out of his car by a group of communist workers, and his clothes were torn down.

Annapoorneshwari is the Devi of nutrition and food. The literal meaning of Annapoorneshwari is “Feeding one and all”. Anyone who comes here is offered meals and shelter within the premises.
Maharshi Agastya is believed to have done pratishtha here.
Once, Shiva and Parvati had an argument. Shiva declared everything in the world including food to be Maya or illusion. To prove him wrong, Devi Parvati disappeared resulting in entire Earth becoming still.
Taking pity, Devi appeared as Annapoorna and relieved everyone.
Another belief is that once Shiva beheaded Brahma and his skull got stuck in Shiva’s hand. He was cursed that till the skull is not full of food or grains, it will remain stuck to his hands.
Shiva went everywhere and asked for food but the skull was never full. He finally came here and Maa Annapoorna filled the skull with grains and reversed Shiva’s curse.
It is believed that who ever visits Devi Annapoorna here will never be without food in their lives.
Kidangoor Subramanya Swami Kshetram is one of the biggest Subrahmanya temple in Kerala, situated on the banks of Meenachil river Subrahmanya is worshipped as Thrikkidangoorappan here.
Subrahmanya swami is Brahmachari bhavam, and all the women who enters temple is treated as mother (Sri Parvathy). It is common that when mother comes to see her son, with respect a son should stand and greet her. To avoid this situations women are not allowed to enter inside
nalambalam, but can worship through Balikkalppura.
Sthala Puranam says that, Subramanya Swami came out of the Kamandalu, carried by Maharsi Gauna. Gauna Nadi(Meenachil river) starts from the Kamandalu of Gauna Maharshi. Gauna Maharshi filled his Kamandalu with punya theertham
Also a vigraham of Subrahmanya swamy and was waiting for Shri Rama in his return journey to Ayodhya after war. But Muni was unable to get Shri Rama darshan because Shri Rama was surrounded by Vanara sena, including Sugreeva and Vibheeshana.
With anger Gauna Muni threw the kamandalu away and the vigraham of Subrahmanya Swami came out from Kamandalu. Later the Prathista of Vigraham was done here in this temple, which is now Kidangoor Kshetram

When I took on my biggest marketing & events team to date (35 employees) I asked him how the *heck* he did it. Here's what he said and what helped me every day. 🧵
Remember you're leading all the employees under you, but you're not *managing* them all. You're managing your direct reports, which should be 5-7 individuals max. Focus on them.
When you interact with the employees you don't manage directly, get to know them as people first, that'll be the most valuable information in leading them. Remembering everything you learn about them is hard, but doing so will make you a superhero.
If you're not going to empower the managers under you, why do you have them? If you see room for improvement, let the manager know and let them make the change on their teams and come to you with questions/concerns. This will save you SO much time.
If you're the smartest person in any room - you're doing it wrong. As a leader, your job is bringing together the best people to get the job done - your skillset is identifying those people, not being one of them.
Here are the inbound strategies they used to grow from 0-100M+ users📈
A thread: 👇👇
1) Hubspot introduced/created the term inbound marketing.
Founders Brian Halligan and Dharmesh Shah grew their inbound marketing software business (founded in 2006) to an IPO in 2014 at $25/share (now around $450).
They are the 2nd fastest SMB SasS company to IPO
2) They noticed a shift in the way people shop/buy. Consumers weren’t tolerating interruptive ads and were ignoring them.
Part of this shift was due to the internet/Google. People now had the power to do their own research to find products that could help solve their problem
3)Theme: Inbound Marketing
They learned conversion rates from inbound/organic leads compared to outbound/paid were more than double. It was cheaper to acquire traffic and resulted in higher quality leads. 75% of their lead gen was inbound, focusing on blogs, webinars, free tools
4) Strategy 1: Blog
They share resources/tips/steps to improve your inbound marketing. They drew people to their posts, provided value, and added a unique CTA related to the topic at the end to capture the lead.
The blog resulted in 20% of their organic leads and 3x their leads
Dakshina Moorthy Kshetram is located in Edappal. Paramashiva is worshipped as Dakhinamurthy here. Kshetram is very unique because, no festival is celebrated here as it might disturb the Tapasya of Paramashiva.
Sthala Puranam says that, the Prathista of the Vigraham was done by Suka Maharshi, thus the name Sukapuram. Suka Maharshi informed an auspicious time for the Prathista of vigraham in the temple. He said that a peacock would appear at the right time. Everybody waited for time,👇
when a man came with peelikavadi ( kavadi with peacock feather), people felt that this is the right time and requested Suka Maharshi to do Prathista.
But this was before the auspicious time. At the time informed by the Maharshi, a peacock came to the temple and sat in balikallu
Maharshi immediately did Prathishta of another vigraham facing south as Dakshinamoorthy. It is said that there are 4 sankalpas of Bhagwan in this temple, Vyakhyana Dakshinamoorthy, Yoga Dakshinamoorthy,Veenadhara Dakshinamoorthy,Jnana Dakshinamoorthy.
Om Nama Shivaya

1/ Why has the government NEVER undertaken a comprehensive impact assessment before approving & re-approving highly intrusive & costly lockdowns?
2/ Why has the govt not been fast-tracking safe, inexpensive, & effective drugs like #Ivermectin for early intervention, when Ivermectin has shown excellent results in clinical trials & would likely substantially reduce the rate of Covid hospitalisation & death?
3/ Why are you toying with the idea of a vaccine passport when we know that the vast majority of travelers run minimal risk from Covid-19, most serious cases occur among elderly & ill patients, & therefore it is sufficient if at risk patients take the vaccine?
4/ Are you familiar with the Nuremberg Code (1947) on permissible medical experiments & its protection of the right of patients to give informed consent to medical experiments? How is penalizing those who refuse a novel vaccine compatible with this
5/ So far, regions with harsh lockdowns & universal mask mandates are NOT avoiding spikes in infections, hospitalisation, & deaths, & performing comparably to non-lockdown, non-mask regimes. Why have you made no change in your policies in light of their demonstrable futility?
Our janma phala is decided by our karmic debts and deeds. The lifecycle of a jeeva is an ultimate goal of moksha i.e. Ikya with the paramatma
@kunthavi05 @SparesofWar We go through multiple births.. manushya one is considered as a big deal i.e. best of janmas to transition towards moksha..
However, our karmic deeds of the past i.e. prarabdha karma has a major impact too. I learnt it recently BTW...
@kunthavi05 @SparesofWar Some who would have done loads of punya in the past get to reap them in the next janma.. the same holds true for the paapa karma..
So we observe these vagaries where people seem to be doing fine inspite of all the adharmic activities done by them
@kunthavi05 @SparesofWar and same way, some suffering a lot even though they are dharmic and simple
Both are prarabda karma at play.. Please note that the current janma is not to expend the previous punya..
The paapa of this janma will also hit in a bad way..
@kunthavi05 @SparesofWar We observe only what's visible but not what's hidden.. most of these guys have issues with having children (just an observation - not generalisation) or with health or some other aspect of life..
We may not know everything of their life..
Ma Kanakadurgeswari is the supreme Goddess of Andhra Pradesh, seated atop the Indrakilaparvatha at Vijayawada.
This area is called Bezawada as Shiva made a bejjam (hole) in the rocks so that Krishna river could flow freely.
Once, a Rishi Indra Keela prayed to Devi and asked her to reside on his head forever. Devi told him to wait in the form of a mountain in the holy plains of River Krishna.
Later, when Devi killed all demons, she settled on Keeladri as Mahishasura Mardini and fulfilled his wish.
In this place, Arjuna performed penance and fought with Shiva, who had appeared in the guise of Kiratha to win Pasupathastra, the most powerful weapon. So this place is also called phalguna theertha and Vijaywada on account of Arjun’s victory.
Adi Sankaracharya visited this shrine and worshipped the Devi. He installed SRICHAKRAM at the feet of Sri Kanaka Durga.
Adjacent to the Kanakadurga shrine is the shrine of the divine consort-Sri Malleswara Swamy on the Indrakeeladri.
