Posted by seshdotcom on January 25, 2009
Hey to People who have been visiting my weblog for the past 5 months I am going to start write about a Completely new topic or say a new section to me but I have collecting matters and writing things in a small paper thinking of how I should write.For the past 2 months I had a Great interest on writing this one so lets see what I have for you
We know that each Mythology has something called an Creator and in chinese mythology the Creator of world is called PANKU盘古-Once, the world was a mass of swirling(Twisting or say Spinning )with darkness. There was no heaven. There was no earth. All the forces of the universe were trapped inside a small egg, tumbling and spinning in utter chaos.And inside that egg there was a there was a tiny creature called Panku.And it was said that for 18000 years Panku Slept inside the egg and as days passed Panku and Egg grew and Panku became a Muscular Giant whose body length was about ninety thousand li(Li- The Chinese measure of Half a Kilometre).One day when the universe was especially unstable, Panku woke up. All around, he saw nothing but darkness and confusion. At first, he became curious by the irregular rhythms of the world and at one point he became tired of all the confusion and Whirling of particles that happened and he decided that he has to do something.–>He picked it up like an ax and swung it down with every ounce of his strength. It crashed upon the exact center of the egg with a huge sonic boom. The sound reverberated throughout the world and split all the particles and gases of the universe in two and he was very happy since a very new world and environment was created but the sad part of Panku’s Story is as days passed he became Older and weaker and each and every Part of his body became one of the Parts in the Universe his teeth and bone Parts became as Solid and Precious Metals(It was said that Panku’s teeth became as a Gold,Silver etc.,)and his Hair became a the roots and Branches of the trees,his blood trickled over the land to create large pools and swift rivers.
And with that Panku was believed to have been died.
