Continued from Part 1


The fire is offered “Chivra”or beaten rice, “Meva” or dry fruits, “Til-gur-revri” or sesame seeds sweet preparation and “gajak” another variety of sweetened sesame seeds. Then the fire becomes the deity of the occasion.


During the 13th and the 14th January, the sun becomes mobile towards the north. This tilt in movement changes the amount of heatness reaching the earth, particularly in the northern snow-clad areas. The people having experienced the biting cold welcome the warm sun rays by celebrating this festival.

Lohri – Festival of Punjab – Part 1


Lohri is one of the famous festivals in the state of Punjab. The origin of this term is not known but some connect it with fire. This festival occurs on the 13th day of January in the month of Paush or Magh, a day before the famous Makar Sankranthi. It is celebrated in the biting cold of the winter season when the winter rains are about to come or have come already.


The festivities include the famous and boisterous Bhangra dance, which ideally suits the occasion since its fast movements generate enough heat in the body to fight off the freezing cold. On Lohri, the dancers perform around a fire in a ring shape.

Indian Culture: Customs and Traditions- Part 1

Geographical Regions of India

India’s culture is among the world’s oldest; civilization in India began about 4,500 years ago. Many sources describe it as “Sa Prathama Sanskrati Vishvavara” — the first and the supreme culture in the world, according to the All World Gayatri Pariwar (AWGP) organization.


Western societies did not always see the culture of India very favorably, according to Christina De Rossi, an anthropologist at Barnet and Southgate College in London. Early anthropologists once considered culture as an evolutionary process, and “every aspect of human development was seen as driven by evolution,” she told Live Science.

Awesome Wholesale Linens

Wholesale Linens

Linen has been serving a vast range of necessities in our world. It is a textile derived from flax plants. The name Lenin is from Latin name for flax plant, Linum. Linens are considered one of the oldest textiles of history dating to about 8000 BC. The prime factor that made Linen stand the test of time is its longevity. Linen manufacturing is very time consuming process, nevertheless is vogue and appears extravagant and gorgeous at the end.


There are a lot of benefits to looking into discount options in wholesale linens, and it depends heavily on where you’re going to shop. If you are going to try and find these things through a brick and mortar location, you may not have the selection that you need to make things match, or even look grand. Often times, when you visit retailers in person, they do not have a large selection of discounted items, which means that you are going to be missing out on something, and could even end up walking away empty handed.

Sanchi Stupa – Part 2

Sanchi Stupa

During the Shunga period the Sanchi Stupa was enlarged and faced with stones and decorated with railings, staircase and a harmika on the top. Around the main Stupa, there is a path for circumambulation. This path is enclosed by a railing with gates at each of the four directions.


The railings and gates of the Sanchi Stupa are richly sculptured with different motifs and designs. Another interesting characteristic about the Sanchi Stupa is that Lord Buddha has been symbolically represented by footprints, wheels, thrones etc. rather than by his own image.


The gateways of Sanchi stupas contain ornamented depiction of incidents from the life of the Buddha and his previous incarnations as Bodhisattvas described in the Jataka tales.

Geographical Regions of India

Continued from Part 1

There are four geographical regions of India. They are

  • The Great Himalayan Range,
  • The Indo Gangetic Plain,
  • The Desert Regions
  • The Deccan Plateau and Peninsula.

The near-level Indo-Gangetic Plains, among the greatest stretches of the flat alluvium in the world, are formed by the basins of three rivers-the Sind, the Ganga and the Brahmaputra. This extends across Northern India for about 2,400 Km with a width varying from 260 to 350 Km. It is almost the most densely populated area in the whole earth. It is a little over a quarter as large as the mountain region.
