Rishikesh Diaries

Located in the foothills of the Himalayas in northern India, it is known as The Gateway to the Garhwal Himalayas and yoga capital. Rishikesh is surrounded by three other districts namely Tehri Garhwal, Pauri Garhwal and Haridwar.

Rishikesh has been a part of the legendary ‘Kedarkhand’ (the present day Garhwal).Legends state that Lord Rama did penance here for killing Ravana, the demon king of Lanka; and Lakshmana, his younger brother, crossed the river Ganges, at a point, where the present ‘Lakshman Jhula’ bridge stands today, using a jute rope bridge. The ‘Kedar Khand’ of Skanda Purana, also mentions the existence of Indrakund at this very point. The jute-rope bridge was replaced by iron-rope suspension bridge in 1889, and after it was washed away in the 1924 floods, it was replaced by the present stronger bridge. Another similar suspension bridge Ram Jhula was built in 1986 at nearby Shivananda Nagar.

What is blood moon ?

Tags

, , , , , , ,


The term is scoffed at by astronomers, but it has come to mean the combination of a super moon – when the moon’s orbit is closest to the Earth and appears up to 8% bigger – and a full lunar eclipse, when the Earth’s shadow obscures the moon. On Sunday night it resulted in spectacular views of a coppery disc in the sky. “Blood moon” is not a scientific term. It began to be used in connection with Biblical prophesies, but has come to be used to describe the reddish hue seen on a super moon during a lunar eclipse. To astronomers, the event was a “super moon, harvest moon, tetrad, lunar eclipse”.

The sun will be turned to darkness, and the moon to blood before the great and dreadful day of the LORD comes.

Keep Calm And Bike On

Came across with this modified Royal Enfield during the Chai & Pakoda Ride – Mumbai bike ride event organised by Social Media Week & India Bike Week. Loved the art on bike. You can see Hanuman Chalisa on the tank.
