How could these people do this carvings as simple as painting into a canvas in that ancient period?. Don't you think its marvellous...The rock wall sculptures are all some incidents from the Hindu holy books.. The characters are mainly representing Hindu Gods..

The rock is a huge natural formation and is remaining in the slope as such for years. There is a strange belief regarding the rock that, " when ever the rock gets misplaced or fells down from that position the world will end". Do you wanna believe it?

Watch the feeble contact of the stone and the rock beneath. Seems like only a little contact there. Scientific observation is that the stone is balancing the weight proportionately and so its remaining in the place.

We went there and tried to push it, hmmmmm there was a slight movement!!!!!

The Mumbai terrorist attacks.Some people says it was another 9/11 terrorism attacks in the history of India.War on terrorism by the governments have been declared after each and every terrorist attack is over. But the serious nature dies off in times, till the next terrorist attack is carried out..It seems we have to think of counter terrorism..

"Flooded Eyes Everywhere"
Hope the boon got by humans to forget may console in mean time..

Woman praying in a community prayer in mumbai behind candles...Can anybody find a remedy for these losses to our families and nation...Hope our government will take actions to prevent terrorism...But the Nations has to move together and determined, against these inhuman organizations.

And now Abdul Kasab, the Terrorist who got captured by the Indian commandos is undergoing trial under the Indian Judiciary.. The dramatic turning point is he accepted his crime and confessed, gave the names of Master Brains behind the attack who are living peacefully in Pakistan still.

Ironically the law in Pakistan found them as so innocent people who just learning to walk and freed them of all charges.Talks between India and Pakistan
about handing over the Culprits is still going on, have to wait and see..

Automobile Show,photos of volvo XC60 suv with dissected body,S40 sedan,FH16 truck and depiction of co2 emissions and new safety features in Vehicles

Volvos, the automobile king who is the provider of world class safety and technology features in cars suv's, trucks and volvo buses. innovations are done in the field of emission, performance and safety.Hope the volvos electric and hybrid engines may give us a green planet for the future free of car emissions of poisonous gases.

Just giving you some photos of the Volvo automobile and safety features show which was held at the ocean race village in Cochin.. Photos of Volvo XC60 suv in body sliced form to exhibit the safety features taken in, Volvo s40 sedan, FH16 trailer and some safety features and emission test demonstrations.. Photos taken with Panasonic Lumix digital camera by Geo..

volvo XC60"Hey...Who Is The Surgeon Here!!!!!"
Volvo XC60

The side dissection of Volvo XC60 SUV...The car features advanced side collision protection and other safety features...The technologies are shared with Land Rover in this project..
ie the off road capabilities are done by Land Rover....Both gasoline and diesel engines are available....

volvo S40.jpg"The Predecessor of S80...The Volvo S40"

This one has three generations from 1995, 2004 and 2008..The 2008 one is here before you..The 2004 version was awarded as the best luxurious cars for the youngsters by Forbes.

This one is with slight addons and a sporty face lift on the 2004 version..Just has improved headlamps, interiors, audio system, emergency braking assists etc..

volvo FH16 trailor.jpg"Have you seen one like this....The FH16 trailer!!!"

The FH series is volvos mos successful heavy truck series..This FH16 is the latest offering with computer controlled manual gear shift..

The thing i noticed was there was only 2pedals, one for acceleration and another brake...Hmmm the clutch is missing, Of course it is not a mistake by Volvo, automatic gearshift no..

It will be difficult for the Volvo to have a test run of this one in our roads...Cant you see the ground clearance is too low..For our challenging roads in India Volvo has to do some researches..

volvo XC60"Volvo XC60..The monster in Safety And Power"

Are you wondering why i said it a monster in safety...Let me tell you something..Do you see the blue light glowing in front..Its nothing but a Rear End Collision detection sensor..The system is named as City Safety..

Ie around the speeds of 30kmps the vehicles sensor monitors chances for rear end collisions.If the collision seems to occur the car is braked automatically.. The goodis are not over..the car also features side impact protection,roll stability and traction control, patented side protective designs, hill descent control etc....

volvo+pavilion+at+volvo+ocean+race.jpg"Let Me Describe!!!.."

The lad explaining some interesting safety features integrated in their vehicles. The thing he said seemed interesting..He started by saying that more than 50% of road accident are due to a drunken driver.. And you wanna hear Volvo's solution for it!!!Hmmm the vehicle won't start if you are drunk..

How wana know? Their is a sensor hidden in the cabin near to driver which senses content of alcohol...And if the driver is drunk....vehicle is immobilized.. Dude... the company cares for your life!!!!

My advice to Volvo is, don't try to sell it here in kerala, for our drivers wont like it!!!!

co2+test+demo.jpg"The Child's Play...A Demo Kit To Test CO2 emission"

The device provides us option to select roots and speeds for some trailers and says us the amount of co2 emitted during the trip and the fuel efficiency...

The company is concerned to make the public aware of facts through these small demos..There was another thing like this which shows the resultant force generated when a car collides in various speeds..

For a sixty kg weighted man when collides at a speed of 70kmph, it showed his weight to be increased to above 5000 kgs, ie the resultant force of collision.

Joining you with more photos on volvo's hybrid engines, electric cars, engines and much more..

Meet here soon

The place which proclaims the artistic and sculptural skills of the pallava dynasty is sometimes termed as an open air museum. The greatness of the place were hidden to the outer world since the 18th century, for the pallavas were not interested in outletting their talents to the outer world.

After the Buddha dynasty the pallavas were the strongest in south India till the end of 9th century.

The place ha so many remainings of the ancient pallava culture. The place was also known as mamallapuram which was named after the old pallava king Narasimhavarman who was also called mamalla (good wrestler). Its is belived that the city was founded by mamalla in the late 7th century.

Mahabalipuram was pallava's religious centre . The period of pallava dynasty was from 4th to 9th century.

About this rock sculpture so many intusions are there. The content of this sculpture is  surely from the Hindu Mythologies, and is most commonly referred as Arjuna's penance.But different opinions are still there.

Look at the carvings done beautifully on the huge rock. A symbol enough to show the artistic and sculptural skill of the old dynasty. Can you imagine people who makes carvings on these huge rocks without any modern technologies to cut or shape the rocks. They emerged successful in encarving their religious believes and moments from the Hindu holy books there in the stones, which looks like a huge canvas to us.

The Jains has some practices like wearing cloth covering over the mouth when reading books in any holy deeds to avoid spilling saliva on the text while reading.. Also by covering the mouth and nose they intends to keep insects from entering their mouth or nose to avoid killing them unintentionally. The jains only drinks boiled water..

Both Hinduism and Jainism have similarities in some of their religion's concepts like Karma and Reincarnation of life..

Some strives of Hindus are said to be influenced by the jains and has became vegetarians..

The jain monks and nuns have many practices which may seem awkward to us.The male Digambara monks wears no clothes and keeps their body nude, for they believes in non-attachment to the body..

Shwetambara monks use white non-stitched clothes.. the Digambara monks stands in a place on one foot and eats in their palms without any utensils used, and they eats only once a day...

The jain monks and nuns travels on foot and never uses any mechanical means of transport..

You have to start from the previous post of hogenekkal if you landed right here..I don't have words to describe this place other than awesome and breathtaking..The lap of nature where she may give u a journey through her wild mysterious beauty..

If you are a tourist and ever plans to come to south India, don't miss this place..The place you seeing now is in the midst of summer, when the river is not in her fury...If you like rafting and diving into deep water, this place is ideal for you..

The ride is bumpy and is very fun. The boatmen have to direct the boat through the current. Look at the green water, it is very cool- cool in all sense. All of us were really enjoying the boat journey..if you are afraid of rivers, you don't need reason to get a bit nervous when in one of those boats..But believe me its more like a caterpillar ride in an amusement park..The difference is just this is in the Natural way..

Don't expect the falls will be like this if you are there just after the monsoon.The rocks won't be seen as you are seeing now, ie if you are in a boat in this place at the time of monsoons, your boat will be floated above these rocks and your life won't be anymore in the hands of that boat men rather than God..

I have to say this photo is a risky shot for we are under the falls now and were getting wet. The phone too got socked and got some water inside. Anyway the risk took by the photographer gave us this close look of the falls. You can see the main falls too in the picture.

...........Sorry guys the real adventure of the journey started from here...We were unable to capture the main moments for we don't have a water resistant camera. We people were splashing water to other boats and they were splashing on us. In no time all of us were totally wet and even the Basket boat got filled with water.

It was like a game and even the boatmen were splashing water each other. We even made a strategy to attack, when the water fight got furious. We were divided to two groups and one group started emptying the water in the boat and the others started attacking the neighboring boats by splashing water with our foot wears. It was great fun throughout.

Before coming to this place our tour guide insisted us not to take bath and not to wear good dress.All of us felt strange and inspite of the advice, we had our bath and were in good dress.We got the meaning of our guide 's words only when the journey turned to a water fight........And it was fun..really fun..Gifted us with one of those memorable events of college life..

The posts is not yet over..It has a continuing and previous gallery..Just click on there too to be complete..

Test Snaps with a Panasonic Lumix Digi Cam; photos of Flowers,Cute little red fruits,Honey bee, iron fence & maruti suzuki hatch back car Wagnor.

This gallery has the photos snapped with Panasonic Lumix, the 6MP digital camera.Most of the photos are taken as a part of testing the camera performance. The camera proved to be a good performer in the overall rating. Photos are snapped holding the camera in my bare hands with the optical zoom for certain shots, and the image stabilization seemed to work satisfactorily.

The camera is of 6 mega pixels with an optical zoom of 3x. The device boast of Leica lens and hasn't disappointed me, for the performance was up to the mark. Overall the battery life also seemed to last for more than an average digital camera would get.

Even though, we cant handle a digital camera to take snaps as easy as we are doing with the cell phone cameras. If you are enough familiar with the settings of the device to make manual configuration for a shot, no wonder you will make breath taking photos. Its more sophisticated device and needs more attention, care and knowledge for better results.

Of course you can use the auto shooting mode to take pictures, but there are conditions where a manual setting would make great difference.

The camera was only for a few days with me, so i couldn't figure out the whole potential.

Bright Red Fruits in a Thorny Plant, Photographed from Kerala 

bright orange fruits closeup photograph taken with panasonic digital camera"What you noticed first???? The red cute fruits or the thorns behind them..........."

Am sure you noticed the red ones...Its common with all of us humans to always see the beautiful ones without noticing the dangers or thorns behind them..
The plant was seen beside a pond near to my house and catched the attraction of my curious eyes searching for something interesting..The result is before you..

The only angle from which i liked the look of my car!!! My home car.Telling about it.. Nice and comfortable for a home ride.. Strictly not for a sporty rash ride, for the car has a side drift due to its body height if sharp curves are done above 40kmph. Above 110kmph there will be vibration in the steer. Any way depends on the road, if the lane is good enough you may drive over that!Here in Kerala its not easy to find one.
