Who first thought of gravitational pull?
Chandrayan 2 was launched yesterday and it uses the same technology of gravitational pull that was used by Mars mission spcecraft, Mangalyan. The reported mission is stated by ISRO as under:
July 22, 2019 at 14:43 hrs IST from Satish Dhawan Space Center at Sriharikota on-board GSLV Mk-III. It will be injected into an earth parking 170 x 39120 km orbit. A series of maneuvers will be carried out to raise its orbit and put Chandrayaan-2 on Lunar Transfer Trajectory. On entering Moon’s sphere of influence, on-board thrusters will slow down the spacecraft for Lunar Capture. The Orbit of Chandrayaan-2 around the moon will be circularized to 100×100 km orbit through a series of orbital maneuvers. On the day of landing, the lander will separate from the Orbiter and then perform a series of complex maneuvers comprising of rough braking and fine braking. Imaging of the landing site region prior to landing will be done for finding safe and hazard-free zones. The lander-Vikram will finally land near South Pole of the moon on Sep 7, 2019. Subsequently, Rover will roll out and carry out experiments on Lunar surface for a period of 1 Lunar day which is equal to 14 Earth days. Orbiter will continue its mission for a duration of one year.
To understand the technique of using gravitational pull, this picture uploaded by ISRO explains better:
Gurdjieff thought about it much earlier.
There is nothing more hypocritical than religious beliefs.
Notre-Dame de Paris, often referred to simply as Notre-Dame, is a medieval Catholic cathedral on the Île de la Cité in the 4th arrondissement of Paris, France. The cathedral is consecrated to the Virgin Mary and considered to be one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture dating to 1100 AD onwards.
This is the statue of Saint Denis in Notre Dame cathedral:
Christians say he managed to walk 6 km after being beheaded, bringing his head along.
Does UK gives foreign aid to India and it is misused to build Statue of Unity?
The aforesaid question was raised in Quora and this was my answer (with few additions):
At the outset, please do stop sending money to India. As a matter of policy India stopped taking foreign aid two decades ago. But many Governments and agencies send money to NGO’s in India for specific projects. Not all money is spent on right purpose.
The biggest headache is the money sent for one purpose but used for CONVERSION to Christianity. Poor people allured by brute power of money start wearing cross and worshipping a deity of Jesus in place if traditional deity, not even knowing what it means. BTW the Jesus is often sitting in a YOGA posture.
In past few years GOI has cancelled accounts of 11000 such NGOs which had not filed the accounts of money received and expenditure thereof. But NGOs misreporting or cooking books are yet to be caught.
This was about aid to private agencies in India. Aid to a private agency is not the same as Government of India.
Why India doesn’t accept aid from foreign governments
India has refused to accept foreign aid for disasters since 2004, when a tsunami killed more than 10,000 people on its southeast coast. The government founded the Federal Emergency Management Agency in response to the incident, and vowed to clean things up on its own. Continue reading
Quest for knowledge.
Gathering knowledge is an intellectual quest but utilizing knowledge in one’s own life is entirely different thing. More often than not we come across the preachers, teachers, Gurus or such people who do not walk the talk. That is so common place. But to be so outrageous that to blurt out this hypocrisy, to a complete stranger is rather amazing.
There is a gentleman in the virtual world who claims (on you tube) that at the age of 41 he quit his day job and after distributing a part of his wealth, he decided to devote his life to Indology (Study of India and its history etc.) Spirituality and Hindu Dharma etc.
It appears that he is moderately successful with about 89 thousand followers on you tube where he mostly interviews specialists from various branches but relating to India. The subject could be Sanskrit or history of India but more frequently answering the Western Indologists twisting the history or Sanskrit translations. There are many (perhaps dozen) books also written by gentleman on variety of subjects debunking many western theories of India. Nice work. Continue reading
Human programming is a fact for me but I do not think that everybody in the world is ready to accept it. More so, a large majority of people may not even understand it. To understand the meaning of a word it is interesting to how different languages express it. But before that, lets understand what programming means in respect of computer program. Interestingly when Woogle translated it in Hindi it came out as “कार्यक्रम निर्माण” which if re-translated in English would be expressed as “creation of work/program”. Interesting?
The world programming is actually used in respect of computers. A program when in operation is also referred as “Algo Rythm”. The process of writing a computer program is called coding as it entails writing a long lines of codes in computer programming language. BTW the most popular language is called “C” and it’s latest version is called as “C++”. For example the first program which is taught to a beginner is how to make computer to give output of “Hello World” on screen. An example of the code: Continue reading
