Three Crowned Kings of Tamilakam
The Three Crowned Kings of Tamilakam ruled and fought over the southern region of the Indian subcontinent for centuries. At the beginning of the common era, southern India and Sri Lanka were home to three Tamil dynastic chiefdoms or kingdoms, each ruled by kings, together called “muvendar.” The Pandya, Chera, and Chola dynasties ruled over the Tamil people during ancient and medieval India, fighting among themselves and other forces for dominance of the region. Despite this turmoil, they were crucial in advancing south Indian art, architecture, and literature.
Feature: Taj Rishikesh Resort & Spa, Uttarakhand
To reach Badrinath, one of India’s holiest towns and temples, pilgrims in the past would have committed to an arduous trek up steep mountain passes on foot, pausing for rest in temporary shelters during journeys that lasted between three months to a year. These flimsy refuges and narrow paths are still visible today on the majestic site that plays host to the first five-star resort located on the Ganges, set in the foothills of the mighty Himalayas, upriver from the city of Rishikesh. More than eight years in the making, Taj Rishikesh Resort & Spa started life as an plot of agricultural land spotted by Canadian-Indian entrepreneur Arjun Mehra, who, while white-water rafting around a double bend in the river, realised this would have been the route that his great grandmother took more than a century ago: “It felt very nostalgic to sit and observe the exact path where she found the motivation to undertake such a difficult pilgrimage,” he explains. “The view across to the awe-inspiring Himalayan mountains that have stood for so many generations proved both humbling and invigorating.”
Dhirubhai Ambani Arrived In Mumbai

Akshay kumar Biograghy
Our main problem is the distortion of various facts by the movie makers. It is based on the accounts of Prithviraj Raso, a poem written in Pingalj language (a mixture of Braj & Rajasthani) by the famous poet Chand Bardai. It is a disputed fact that Chand Bardai was ever a court poet of the king. According to our researchers, who have scanned through hundreds of historical text and available inscriptions, Bardai wrote the book in the 16th century, almost 400 years after the reign of the king. The account that he has presented about the king is highly speculative and fictitious.

The Golden Temple of Amritsar Then and Now
Part of me is optimistic about the state of the Golden Temple. Not to be overly revisionist or reductionist in my opinion on the place, I like to remind myself that politics, ideology, and the like have always been at work in the world of the Harimandir Sahib. Problems apparent now are probably just a trade-off for problems of the past. But there is one thing that I cannot shake: the brash lack of care for our material heritage as seen in the conservation or otherwise of the buildings and art in and around Darbar Sahib.
