India is diverse. And one can truly fathom her diversity when one travels the length of the country, from the north to south, from west to east and of course the north-east. To the uninitiated, north-east India is a mystical place. Nestled far away from the madding crowd, bastioned by the hills and mountains, nourished and sustained by large riverine systems and the dense rainforest embracing the myriad landscape, it’s unlike any other place in the country.

To showcase and promote the exquisite natural beauty of the region, the Ministry of Development of North East Region (MDONER) organized a three day fair called “Destination North East 2016” on February 12-14th in Pragati Maidan , New Delhi. It was a unique opportunity for the people of the rest of the country to acquaint themselves with the asymmetry of its ethnicity- the people, language, customs, culture, crafts and cuisine. The festival aimed at bridging the gap between the rest of India and the North East states by creating awareness about the region among the people here.

The Union Minister of State for Development of North-Eastern Region (MDoNER) Dr Jitendra Singh inaugurated the festival. The festival included business summits, exhibit stalls showcasing features of North East in order to attract investment participation in tourism, Information technology, skill development, food processing, handloom and handicrafts, rural livelihood, entrepreneurship, horticulture and floriculture.

India Art Fair’16 was one of its kind
This year we experienced exceptional work that varied from digital media, different art forms, sculptures and installations. Delhi was mesmerized with the kind of work that was showcased this year. One of the most interesting art works were seen at the “EXHIBIT 320” that presented a body of work with emerging and mid-career contemporary artists from the subcontinent with a focus on India, Pakistan and Bangladesh.
One of the artwork that really stood out was of Ayesha Singh her enthrallment with the postcolonial and minor architecture was really impressive.

Kedareshwar Cave ( Harishchandragad )

The Talk Studio today brings you a story whose mystery is par excellence, a story which will make you believe that god exists, a story of a Cave in Harishchandragad a hill fort in the Ahmednagar district of India.

Going rightwards of Harishchandreshwar temple, there is the huge cave of Kedareshwar also known as Kedareshwar Cave. The Cave holds a big Shiv Linga, which is completely surrounded by water. Its height from the base is five feet, and the water is waist-deep. It is quite difficult to reach the Shiva Linga because the water is ice-cold.

There is a huge rock above the Shiva Ling. There were four pillars built around the Shiva Linga. No one really knows the history about these pillars, but it is said that the pillars were built to depict the four ‘Yugas’ of Life – ‘Satya Yuga’, ‘Tretha Yuga’, ‘Dwapara Yuga’ and ‘Kali Yuga’.When a Yuga comes to the end of its time, one of the pillars is said to break down. Three of the pillars have already broken down. The general belief is that the current phase is the ‘Kali Yuga’ and the day the fourth pillar breaks down – it will be looked to as the last day of the current era.

Another interesting thing about this place is that water seeps into this temple from the four walls on an everyday basis. And owing to the water being very cold, it’s difficult to reach inside too. The water continues to seep in during all the seasons in the year, except during rainy season and surprisingly, it is also said that there is absolutely no water there during rainy seasons alone.

So, is this story a myth for you, or do you believe in it. Do share your views with us in the comments section below.

2. The Shame Wave

You haven’t done something properly drunk and stupid until you’ve had a shame wave, and before you had one you didn’t actually know that embarrassment was a physical feeling. The Shame Wave is a self realization phase, a phase which comes when you get to know what did you did last night.
