The word "Mallakhamb" is composed of malla which denotes a gymnast or a man of strength and khamb which means a pole. Mallakhamb can therefore be translated to English as pole gymnastics.[1]

History[edit]

The earliest recorded references to Mallakhamb is found in the 12th century classic Manasollasa (1135 AD) by Somesvara Chalukya. Other than Maharashtra, it was also practiced in ancient Hyderabad.[2] However, the sport does not become visible in practice and well recorded until it was revived or invented in the 18th century by Balambhatdada Deodhar, the fitness instructor of Peshwa Baji Rao II duri…

Eyes

Eyes, a photo by firoze shakir photographerno1 on Flickr. eyes are the most
deceiving windows of the soul
on a parchment of the flesh
simply two holes

like orbs of
burning coal
from gods
hearth that
man stole
when god
with his angels
had gone
out for a
stroll


this poem was inspired by sarah my good friend

hanging by a
slender noose
of a thread
as thin as

The 65th Republic Day of Mother India

from wikipedia

In India, Republic Day honours the date on which the Constitution of India came into force on 26 January 1950 replacing the Government of India Act (1935) as the governing document of India.[1]
The Constitution was passed by the Constituent Assembly of India on 26 November 1949 but was adopted on 26 January 1950 with a democratic government system, completing the country's transition toward becoming an independent republic. 26 January was selected for this purpose because it was this day in 1930 when the Declaration of Indian Independence (Purna Swaraj) was proclaimed by the Indian National Congress.


India achieved independence from British rule on 15 August 1947 following the Indian independence movement noted for largely peaceful nonviolent resistance and civil disobedience led by the Indian National Congress. The independence came through the Indian Independence Act 1947 (10…

The Malangs are dread heads ..long hair almost 18 feet to 20 feet or more , their dreads are never exposed to public , and this is the only time they let down their hair on the main urus day 30 March , than they do the kaif to the beat of the drums .
