Magadha was an ancient kingdom located on the Indo-Gangetic plains in eastern India and spread over what is today the modern state of Bihar. At the height of its power, it claimed suzerainty over the entire eastern part of the country (roughly the area of England) and ruled from its capital at Pataliputra (modern Patna, Bihar). In 326 BCE, when Alexander the Great was camped at the river Beas on the westernmost part on India, his army mutinied; they refused to march further east. They had heard about the great Magadha kingdom and were unnerved by stories of its might. *

The ancient kingdom of #Magadha is heavily mentioned in #Jain and #Buddhist texts, as it was the main power in the geographic area where #Mahavira and the #Buddha were born, with the latter renouncing his inheritance to the kingdom. It is also mentioned in the #Ramayana, the #Mahabharata and the Puranas. A state of Magadha is recorded in Vedic texts much earlier in time than 600 BCE. #History #Magadh #Bihar

Working on a project on Dr. #Ambedkar and found a website decorated with the #friezes seen around the #SanchiStupa. Found this picture of one of my favourites, taken on my trip there last October. It shows the procession of the King of #Magadha, Bimbisara, making its way through the capital #Rajgriha, to pay homage to the #Buddha. #stupa #heritage #heritagesite #Buddhism #buddhistarchitecture #architecture #nofilter

This group of men I stumbled upon, busy lighting up haystack to beat the cold. I kept the camera on one side and the only thing i noticed on each ones face was - Worrylessness
They are poor ppl with very limited resources, yet they are calm, poised and happy.
I started the conversation with paranormal and I fetched 4 nerve wracking stories from this guy. I had to muster a lot of courage to walk back alone to the retreat.
The sheer bliss of knowing strangers. #stories #incredibleindia

A monks amidst so many monks from different parts of the world, this one negotiating rickshaw fare to reach Mahabodhi temple. I offered to share, he smiled, agreed, put his air mask and hopped right next.
There is something really calming about their demeaner. #village #stories #incredibleindia

The Seleucid-Mauryan war (305-303 BC)

Not a lot is know about the conflict between the Mauryas and the Seleucids due to the absence of detailed historical records. But we can get a somewhat rough picture of it from the few historical sources along with some logical assumptions that we can make based on the prevailing geo-political situation at that time. After the death of Alexander the Great his empire fractured into various successor states, carved out by each of his generals who had accompanied him on his campaign. In the eastmost part of Alexander's once extensive empire Seleucus I Nicator was in power holding dominion over the territories of Babylon and Persia. He was currently embroiled in the wars of the Diadochi (the successors) and was busy trying to fend off his rivals from claiming control of his territories. Meanwhile in the east Chandragupta Maurya, the ruler of Magadha, rose to prominence after defeating the Nanda empire that ruled over the Gangetic plains. After taking the Nanda capital of Pataliputra and establishing the Mauryan empire as a fledgling power he began to expand his empire which eventually brought him into conflict with the Seleucids. From what we can tell the it seemed that the Mauryans held an upperhand in the war with their rapid expansion in the north and in the west (although the recently conquered territories could also have been a part of the territories given up by the Seleucids willingly). In the end Seleucus decided to cut his losses by ending the war with the Mauryans so that he could deal with the far greater threat in the east posed by his rival Antigonus I Monophthalmus. In return for ceding some of his eastern territories and quite possibly forming an alliance through marriage with Chandragupta Maurya, Seleucus received around 500 war elephants. These war elephants would prove instrumental in a later battle at Ipsus which Seleucus won cementing his rule in the Middle east for quite some time. As for Chandragupta, he adopted Jainism later on and gave up the throne according to his newfound faith. At the time of Chandragupta's abdication the Mauryan empire would cover most of northern India.

Met film and theatre actor-couple Mr Manoj Joshi and his wife Mrs Charu Joshi after watching FOR THE 2nd TIME THIS YEAR, the most thrilling play in my life,"CHANAKYA", based on the life of India's great saint Acharya Vishnugupta Chanakya, who taught life's greatest lessons to prince Chandragupta and made him king of Magadha.

KUNG FU YOGA [ 2017 ], directed by #StanleyTong.
This here is, yet another, proof that #JackieChan is still in great shape, but does he have anything left to prove?
Chinese archeology professor named Jack (Jackie Chan) teams up with a beautiful Indian professor Ashmita (#DishaPatani) and assistant Kyra (#AmyraDastur) to locate lost #Magadha treasure. They go up against Randall (#SonuSood), the descendent of a rebel army leader of ancient times.
For one thing, this movie is fun and colorful, as well as a successfull collaboration between Chinese cinema and #Bollywood. This whole Indo-Chinese cultural clash has been executed quite well, with a very wise approach.
One of the few things, I think, this film is hated for is for Chan going outside of his comfort zone, filming around the world, exploring different cultures, leading some audience to misunderstand the concept.
Yet, I'll have to give this movie credit for an amazing cinematography, location sets and a picturisque tone overall.
More and more often Jackie shares his on-screen time with many younger co-stars, making himself "one of the main stars", but it doesn't mean he can't carry a movie on his own anymore. He is still as hyperactive as he used to be decades ago.
All in all, this movie here is plain fun attraction, similar to his #ArmourOfGod film series, mixing comedy and adventure genres, but a bit shallow story and mostly cartoonish humor just don't work like they used to back in a day.
I'll go with a 6/10 on this one, all because of that final dance scene, and Chan being one of my favorite movie stars back when I was a kid, and remains to be to this day.
Looking forward to some of his more serious roles in his upcoming projects.
P.S. I think #ShahRukhKhan should have been casted in as Randall. It could been awesome to see he and Chan on screen together.

The World heritage site of Nalanda University ruins.
The first of its kinds place of World famous university built in BC, the university was touted to be the Best in the world catering to a huge variety of subjects under a heavy Buddhist influence.

Enlighted!

Bodh Gaya Mahabodhi temple is lovely by night! To watch it under the moonlight sky was a vision in itself. And to imagine that centuries ago, Siddharth Gautama sat at this very place under the very moon where the secrets of the mind and world opened right in front of him, endowing enlightenment! A UNESCO world heritage site, this is an important place for the Buddhist religion where thousands throng all year just to touch the very ground the Lord walked and pick leaves from the Bodhi tree he meditated under.

#MumbaiMyHomeToo was a #radioseries really close to my heart. I also covered #Diplomats who have made this city their home.

The beautiful @sarojasirisena #ConsulGeneral #SriLanka was a revelation.

She gave me & the listeners a history lesson on #EmperorAshoka & his #Magadha & their connection with #SriLanka and how the title "Sinha" eventually became "Sinhala" over the sands of time.
Plus how ( In #Saroja s own words ) " @jacquelinef143 #jacquelinefernandez is Sri Lankas best export " & “ gymming with @murali.800 #muttiahmuralitharan is awesome “ !
i also had to ask #Sirisena about her exotic #Saree collection which has made it to @verveindia
It's also pretty impressive that she's educated in #Colombo #Australia & #France plus had diplomatic postings in #Paris, #Brussels and then #Geneva before #Mumbai
I'm blessed that the most powerful #bureaucrats & diplomats come onto my #GoodMorningMumbai show & are able to just be themselves
Her excellency also mentioned that #mumbaiyya #bhelpuri #Sevpuri & #NariyalPani gets her going!

Lovely!
#sarojasirisena #hrishikay

On my #radioseries #MumbaiMyHomeToo on #943RadioOne #943radioonemumbai

Raja Magadha Jarasanda - seorang raja yg berwajah setengah raksasa,bertubuh tinggi besar,gagah perkasa dan sakti mandraguna,tapi sayang dia berwatak sombong,dan seorang raja yg angkara murka,suka memerangi negara-negara kecil disekitar kerajaannya,dan semua negara-negara kecil akhirnya jadi wilayah jajahannya,dan rajanya menjadi tawanan Jarasanda,diceritakan bahwa saat kelahirannya Jarasanda tidak berwujud seperti manusia kebanyakan,tapi berupa bayi setengah raksasa dan tubuhnya terbagi dua sebelah kanan dan sebelah kiri terpisah sendiri-sendiri,maka pada waktu itu raja driyadata ayah dari Jarasanda malu mempunyai anak yg lahir cacat seperti itu,maka untuk menutupi aib keluarga kerajaan Magadha dibuanglah bayi itu ketengah hutan agar dimangsa sama hewan buas,tapi rupanya yg maha kuasa berkehendak lain,bayi yg malang tersebut ditemukan oleh raseksi/raksasa perempuan bernama jara,dan dipungutlah bayi aneh tersebut yg berwujud dua belahan tubuh bayi yg sebelah kanan berwarna merah dan belahan tubuh yg sebelah kiri berwarna biru,dan keajaiban terjadi ketika tubuh bayi yg malang itu digendong oleh raseksi jara,tubuh yg terpisah tersebut sontak menyatu menjadi satu utuh jadi seorang bayi yg berwajah setengah raksasa,maka oleh raseksi jara bayi tersebut diakui sebagai anaknya dan diberi nama jarasanda,singkat cerita setelah raseksi tahu bahwa sebenarnya Jarasanda anak yg ditemu oleh nya adalah anak seorang raja,yaitu raja Magadha Driyadata,maka Jarasanda disuruh oleh ibu angkatnya raseksi jara untuk pergi ke negara Magadha menemui ayahnya agar diakui sebagai anak dan dijadikan sebagai pangeran pati oleh raja Driyadata,tentunya setelah setelah beranjak dewasa dan sudah dibekali dengan bebagai ilmu kesaktian tingkat dewa oleh sang ibu raseksi jara,maka sesampainya Jarasanda di kerajaan Magadha menghadaplah dia dihadapan raja Driyadata,dan menceritakan kisah hidupnya sesuai apa yg pernah diceritakan oleh ibunya yaitu raseksi jara,tapi semua kesaksiannya ditolak oleh raja Driyadata,dan dia tidak diakui anak oleh raja Driyadata...berlanjut di komen #jarasanda#magadha#mahabarata

Gautama Buddha (c. 563 BCE/480 BCE – c. 483 BCE/400 BCE), also known as #Siddhārtha #Gautama, Shakyamuni Buddha, or simply the Buddha, after the title of #Buddha, was an #ascetic (śramaṇa) and sage, on whose teachings #Buddhism was founded. He is believed to have lived and taught mostly in the eastern part of ancient #India sometime between the sixth and fourth centuries BCE.

Gautama taught a Middle Way between sensual indulgence and the severe asceticism found in the śramaṇa movement common in his region. He later taught throughout other regions of eastern India such as #Magadha and #Kosala.

Gautama is the primary figure in Buddhism. He is recognized by #Buddhists as an #enlightened or #divine #teacher who attained full #Buddhahood, and shared his insights to help sentient beings end rebirth and suffering. Accounts of his life, discourses, and monastic rules are believed by Buddhists to have been summarized after his death and memorized by his followers. Various collections of #teachings attributed to him were passed down by oral tradition and first committed to writing about 400 years later.
