Gong was arrogant

Posted by seshdotcom on May 31, 2009

After the people were Created by Nuwa the Peace didn’t exist in the Earth it was a Heated Encounter between Gong(The Water God) and Zurong(The Fire God)

Gong the water god pummeled the world with incessant
bouts of rain and floods. The deluges battered homes into
piles of rubbish, and they toppled ancient trees. Great
mountains crumbled and crashed into the swelling muddy
rivers. Gong showed no mercy as thousands of people and
animals perished on the soggy, bloated earth.
The other gods avoided Gong because his fury was so
intense. They watched silently as their moats, villages, and
temples were destroyed, one by one. Finally, Zurong, the
fire god, decided that Gong had gone too far. Zurong was
irritated by the other gods’ cowardice, and he did not
approve of his successor’s plans to reshape the earth into
water-heavy proportions.
So Zurong challenged Gong to regain control of the
earth. Gong gladly met his rival in combat. As the two
powerful forces wrestled each other across the firmament,
the sky shook with thunder, and lightning flashed across
the sky. For days, they grappled, wrestled, and pinned each
other higher and higher in the skies until they finally
cracked the dome of heaven.
When neither god could gain control, Gong challenged
Zurong to restage their battle on earth. Zurong gladly

Der Wasserkrieg Beginnt:

                             Gong the water god started to give trouble to the people with Uninterrupted  Rain and floods. The deluges Buffeted the  homes into piles of rubbish, and they Tumbled ancient trees which stood as a Symbol of Beauty and was a Habitat for many animals. Great mountains crumbled and crashed into the swelling muddy rivers. Gong showed no mercy as thousands of people and animals perished on the soggy, bloated earth. The other gods avoided Gong because his fury was so intense. They watched silently as their moats, villages, and temples were destroyed, one by one . Finally all of them were deceived expect—> Zurong, the fire god, decided that Gong had gone too far. Zurong was irritated by the other gods’ cowardice and was Unhappy with them since they weren’t even taking a step forward to stop Gong and save the people. So Zurong challenged Gong to regain control of the earth. Gong gladly met his rival in combat. As the two powerful forces met and  wrestled each other across the firmament,the sky shook with thunder, and lightning flashed across the sky.

It was ablaze and total chaos with flags, drums,and the cries of a thousand battle-thirsty men.And after a Long battle Gong the enemy of free people of Middle Earth was Defeated and all the other Gods Rejoiced this Moment

Who is going to be Coronated???

Posted by seshdotcom on May 29, 2009

                                 We all know T20 World Cup is going to start in another one week..The Cricketing Gods have already resevred their seats in the heaven to see the Quilt being Destroyed all over the Ground and will come soft soon with the Gargantuan Hits..(India) won the First Edition of the T20 World Cup(Possibly the Youngest Tournament of the ICC which hasn’t lost its Demand eventhough experts say that it “Does not improve the Batsmans Game in anyway if you are in a spoling mood and if you get your willow well tuned you can hit out of the Park every now and then and has no Startegy like Test Cricket or Limited Overs Cricket”but according to me this is the real Battleground where the Patience and the thinking of Bowlers are tested…”You Should have a Big Heart when you Bowl in T20”—>Else do not pick up the Ball to bowl.The Budgeoner will have everything ready to swing it across for each and every delivery and we will go mad and enjoy each and every Moment when it goes high in the air.I believe I am Slightly deviating from the topic–Who is going to be Coronated? ok so now we will have a Quick Predicion of some of the teams now of that now

Australia:
        The Autralians are the world champions in the 50 over game but they will not forget the pain that they had when Yuvi and Robin Uthappa tattered and Gatecrashed their Party,They have one of the finest Hitters of all time and Warner replacing the Great OZ Keeper Gilchrist in the Opening Slot will add to strength to their Artillery.Symonds has enormous power to take it out of the Ground even Yorkers may get Converted to Crowd Killers.Binga with his Fiery Bowling will surely disturb the timber and so as Mitchell Johnson
And I am sorry if anyone of the Players weren’t in the Squad–I haven’t Looked throught any teams/squads before writing this so just see people who are applicable and reject N/A
So considering all these I believe Oz has a 11% Chance to make the other teams sick/sweat
New Zealand:
         The Kiwis are the real threat nobody knows or they will realize the abundant talent that these Guys Possess–India has not lost to any team except New Zealand in previous World Cup where there was a Huge Target set for the Indians.Brendon Mccullum as we all know is a Swashbuckler and can hit the ball a long long way and Jacob Oram with his Massive Height and Strength hits the ball with ease and they do have some Finest Hitters in the world like the Samoan Ross Taylor and I personally feel that their wekest department is the Bowling Department so we will give a 11% chance to Kiwis also
Pakistan:
      The runners up and who made Dhoni bite his nails when Joginder Bowled the decisive over to the demolishing Misbah Ul Haq who was really really frustrated because he played such a fantastic Knock in the finals to take Pakistan from nowhere near the target to a loss by whisker.And they have some Great hitters like Afridi who can really turn the Heat ont he Bolwers Head with a Couple of Unexpected Big hits but again the place they lack is the Bowling Department so I would say pakistan has a 7% chance of winning this T20 World CUp
Stay Tuned for some of my other reviews

The Famous Greek Archeological site

Posted by seshdotcom on May 29, 2009

The foremost oracle of the ancient Old World is Located on Mount Parnassus
above the Gulf of Corinth, in Greece. It was governed by a hoisioi, or “college” of
priests required to trace their family lineage(The Descendants) to Deucalion before taking office,
because he was believed to have brought the principles of divination to Delphi
from a former Golden Age overwhelmed by the Deluge. Mount Parnassus itself
was consecrated to Poseidon, the sea-god of Atlantis. Delphi’s Omphalos stone
characterized it as “the Navel of the World,” after the Atlantean mystery cult of
the same name. Practioners from Atlantis appear to have arrived on the shores of
the Gulf of Corinth, where they reestablished the antediluvian spiritual center no
later than the late third millennium B.C. 

New Words in this Post:

Antediluvian-The Period in between the Creation of Earth and Deluge Generally Deluge means Heavy DownPour of Rain but here Deluge means the Prehistoric Floods which was believed to have washed away the Earth and had a Huge impact

The Great Archeological Site of Greeks

Consecrated-Declared to be a Holy thing or there is another meaning being Dedicated for a Special High Purpose

The World-Beating oracle of the ancient Old World is Located on Mount Parnassus  Delphic oracle above the Gulf of Corinth, in Greece. It was governed by a hoisioi—>college of priests required to trace their family lineage(The Descendants)The preists made sure that the Delphic Oracle is always controlled by one of them from their Family and the control doesn’t go out of their Hand.Mount Parnassus was consecrated(Dedicated) to Poseidon, the sea-god of Atlantis. Delphi’s Omphalos stone characterized it as “the Navel of the World,” after the Atlantean mystery cult of the same name. The Followers of  Atlantis appear to have arrived on the shores of the Gulf of Corinth, where they reestablished the antediluvian spiritual center which is now a Great Historic Site

The Religion the Inca People Followed

Posted by seshdotcom on May 28, 2009

                    People who do not know who Incas are(Because the last post about Incas was way back some 2 months ag0 I reckon so this is just a reminder—–> The small group of Quechua living in the Cuzco Valley in Peru(Western South America) which was previously held by the spanish ok now lets see the religion and the gods they follow

                   In the Diurnal months in the calendar the Inca people concentrated more on their work and during the nocturnal months the religion of the Incas played a major role-Every month in the nocturnal calendar had atleast one religious celebration and it was believed that the Incas had more than 120 religious rituals(Religious Practice)throughout the year which is an Gargantuan Number considering their Short term mythology and Popularity they had now coming to their Belief –their God is Viracocha–is neither male nor female created the earth, sky, stars, and all living things and their Main diety was Viracocha.They had a very Interesting Belief of how sun came and how the Living things came into existence read the following I enjoyed this while writing They believed Viracocha made the sun and moon by plucking them from an island in Lake Titicaca, high in the Andes.while people and animals were formed from clay in Tiahuanaco on the lakeshore.Tiahuanaco is an important Pre-Columbian Archaelogical site.

They had 100% of their Belief in Sun God:

                                  The Incas honored the sun, Inti, as an important god, portraying Inti as a face within a golden disk and surrounded by rays. Officially, the sapa inca(sapa in Quechuan language means Unique Leader) was the “son of the sun,” a divine being that directly descended from the sun god. Upon death, the people believed the sapa inca had returned to the sun. The major religious event of the year was the Inti Raymi, a multi-day festival honoring Inti, complete with food supplied by the sapa inca and local priests

Shen Nung( 神农) the second king of Magical Period

Posted by seshdotcom on May 9, 2009

Back again with a small finding!!!

              This is  a very short post you would see  when compared to others in sesha Utters but only this much I could gather about the Magical kings so may be I may edit this entry if I get to know more.                   

               Like Fushi even Shen Nung is Half-human and Half-animal and they had many things similar.Shen Nung 神农 had Great Magical Powers to make sure the Agriculture and the rain which Guarantees that copious vegetation always existed in the world.Shen Nung was told to have lived from 2737 BC-2598 BC and he brought many reformation to the Agriculture world.During his era the Village and the towns had a Great improvement in the Agriculture sector–The chinese started to plant rice crops only during shen fung’s reign–This is the notable achievement of Shen Fung even other crops like wheat Maize etc were Grown.He has also given many tips to the chinese farmers to how to prevent locusts entring the fields and other preventive measures.

In Short He is the Person who gave life for plants/crops in China
