12.31.04 - Blowing the conch
31 Dec 04 Jyothi Karthik Raja

12.31.04 - Blowing the conch

Bangalore, India

Blowing the conch. During the olden days when two kingdoms used to fight,
when they stood on the battleground, each would announce their preparedness
by blowing a conch. The Bhagavad Gita, the holy book of Hindus begins with the
blowing of a conch. It is thus a sign to herald a new beginning.

With this the Indian culture series ends, and I herald and look forward to the
new year. Happy New year to everyone.
