  • Famous for kidnapping Lord Ramas wife Maa Sita, Ravana was a staunch devotee of Lord Shiva and a Brahmin who could chant all the Vedas by heart. Ravana was a descendant of ‘Surya Vansha’ of Hela Yakka, ancient Sinhala tribe. Ravana was one of the best fighters in Angampora, the traditional martial arts of ancient Sinhale. He was a great Scholar in Ayurvedic medicine. He was the person who invented “Arka Shastra”. The book “Arka Prakshaya” reveals this truth to the present world. He did research in Ayurvedic medicine and wrote several books revealing the cures for many diseases. In one of his books he wrote “Eating beef cause to infect ninety eight new diseases to human beings”. The book “Kumara Tantraya” which reveals the treatments for infant diseases was written by him accepting the request of his pregnant queen Mandodari. He was the author or Ravan Samhita. The origin of violin is traced back to the Ravana Hatta, a stringed instrument played using a bow. King Ravana invented the bow of Violin. He also narrated very first Raagas, the musical compositions of Eastern classical music known as Lanka Dehena. Shiva Tandava Strotam is one of the great devotional compositions written by him, which is recited till date to soothe the anger of Shiva. He was the first king flew over the world with his aero plane, known as Dandumonaraya, Vimaanaya or Ahasthara. King Ravana continued a vegan oriented life style and was a real nature lover. Ravana was a great scholar of the Vedas, a tapasvi, a classical musician, powerful warrior and in fact, the great grandson of Lord Brahma. His brother Kubera, is one of the devas. And even Lord Rama constructed a temple of Shiva in Rameshwaram to atone for having killed a Brahmin and a great devotee of Shiva. On his deathbed Ravana recited the lessons for running a kingdom to lord Rama and Lakshman. Ravana had served great penance to Brahma and got boon for immortality. His only problem was arrogance and ego, he deserved to die for his actions and that his death is celebrated as a positive event does not make him “evil.” In fact, as Ravana lies dying on the battlefield, he asks for Rama’s forgiveness and is granted the same! ✨🕉✨

  • The photographer's tale behind the picture, and his love for night photography- . . "Night photography ain't the easiest of the genres of photography but is one of the most satisfying when everything clicks. As my fellow shooters would vouch, it takes some doing to get things rolling. First of all, just finding the will to go out & shoot in the night doesn't come easy. The frigid sub-zero temperatures in the river basin is a daunting task...just try removing your gloves & exposing your digits here. Then the cold howling winds would extinguish the flame faster than you could mutter Spiti.  The one great thing about night photography is the team camraderie. There is a sense of adventure as you all head to a spot that was scouted in the evening & wonder where it has disappeared in the pitch black darkness. There is a feeling of drama to unfold, as you sympathise, cheer, ok at times curse the fire thrower's travails at lighting the wool." . . Photo and caption credit- @chittaranjandesai . .
