Andhra Pradesh- ?The Rice Bowl of India?

Andhra Pradesh is situated on the Deccan (south) plateau which is one of the oldest geological formations in India. The mighty Godavari and Krishna rivers cut their way through the plateau, forming large deltas before entering the Bay of Bengal. Andhra Pradesh, situated south of the Vindhyas, is surrounded by Madhya Pradesh, Orissa, the Bay of Bengal in the east and Tamil Nadu and Karnataka in the south and by Maharashtra in the west. It is the fifth largest state in India in area and population. The state can be divided into three important regions-the coastal region, comprising of nine districts, generally called Andhra; the interior region, consisting of four districts collectively known as Rayalaseema; and the Telengana region, consisting of the capital Hyderabad and nine adjoining districts. Eight of its 23 districts have direct access to the sea.

History:

-Historically it is believed that the original people of Andhra Pradesh were Aryans. Post their migration to the south of Vindhyas they were mixed up with other races. A major part of Emperor Ashoka’s kingdom, Andhra Pradesh was an important Buddhist center of that time. Several places in the state still bear the traces of the Buddhist culture and influence.

-The Satavahana dynasty is perhaps the earliest dynasty that ruled in Andhra Pradesh. After the end of the Satavahana reign, the state was ruled by the Pallavas, the Chalukyas, the Cholas and the Kakaityas respectively.

-In 1323, the Kakatiya dynasty was uprooted, following the capture of their ruler by Tughlak Sultan of Delhi. After the end of the Kakatiya dynasty, few local kingdoms rose to power in different parts of the kingdom. Among these, the Vijaynagar kingdom was the most powerful one. The great king Krishnadeva Raya belonged to that kingdom. After failing time and again against the Vijayanagar empire, the kingdom was finally captured by the Muslim invaders.

-In the middle of the 16th century, the emergence of the Qutb Shahi dynaty took place. They were defeated by Aurangazeb’s son.

-In 1707, Hyderabad was declared independent and went under the rule of the Nizams. The Nizams were great allies of the British and they helped the Europeans to defeat Tipu Sultan of Mysore.

-Post the Indian independence, Andhra Pradesh became the first state to be formed on the basis of language. The Telegu speaking people were given 21 districts, out of which 9 were in the Nizam’s Dominions and the rest in the Madras Presidency.

-Following an agitation in 1953, 11 districts of the Madras state were taken to form a new Andhra state with Kurnool as its capital.

-In 1956, nine districts under the Nizam were later added to form the enlarged state of Andhra Pradesh. Hyderabad became the capital of the state, which is one of the most technologically advanced cities of the modern India.

Culture: Ingenious crafts, glorious religious festivals, a varied cuisine and the sonorant mother tongue, Telugu, melodious music, scintillating dances are some of the indelible impressions of this state.

Kuchipudi is the famous classical dance form of Andhra Pradesh. Tribal dances contribute in equal measure to the artistic heritage of Andhra Pradesh. Tholubommalaata, a shadow puppetry theatre is a fascinating folk art of Andhra Pradesh. The other fabulous dance forms are Andhra Natyam, Veeranatyam, Butta Bommalu, Dappu, Chindu Bhagawatham, Tappeta Gullu, Lambadi, Bonalu, Dhimsa. The state is also known for being the homeland of Thyagaraja, Shyama Sastri and Muthuswami Dixitar – the three prodigies of the Carnatic Music Trinity.

Architecture in Andhra Pradesh ranges from prehistoric cairns to Buddhist Setups; Hindu and Jain temples of great importance to imposing churches, secular monuments such as the Charminar of Hyderabad to some of the most beautiful mosques and Islamic tombs of India. The known craft forms of Andhra Pradesh are Banjara Needle Crafts, Bidri Craft, Bronze Castings, Budithi Brassware, Durgi Stone Craft, Kondapalli Toys, Lacquer Ware, Nirmal Arts – Paintings & Toys, Veena Manufacturing, Handlooms, Chirala Textiles, Dharmavaram Saris, Eluru Carpets, Gadwal Saris, Ikat Weaving Handlooms, Mangalagiri Sarees, Uppada Sarees Handlooms.

Andhra Pradesh has a wide variety of wildlife and natural beauty. The state is home to one of India’s largest tiger reserve, in the Nallamai forest. The Godavari river delta is famous for reptiles like the salt water crocodile, fishing cats and other exotic animals. The medieval city of Hyderabad is its capital. Famous beaches are Visakhapatnam Bheemunipatnam, Kakinada, Chirala, Kalingapatnam and Mypad.

Topography and Weather: Two of the most important rivers of India, Krishna and Godavari, rising in the Western Ghats of Maharashtra and Karnataka flow through Telengana to merge with the Bay of Bengal in a combined river delta. Telengana is separated from Rayalaseema by the Erramala Hills. Andhra Pradesh is covered with many hills of the Deccan Plateau. Tirumala Hills and the Palkonda Hills are to the South of the state. On the East are the Velikonda Hills on the outer eastern edges of the Nallamalla Ranges. Summers in Andhra Pradesh last from the month of March to June.

Make Beautiful Yards with an Outdoor Fire Bowl

Today, yards are not just seen as mere outdoor areas but an extension of a house’s living space as well. This is the very reason why a lot of people are now investing in landscaping and beautifying their yards. And one of the newest emerging trends today is the use of an outdoor fire bowl. A fire bowl will not only make you and your guests feel comfortable outdoors but they can also make your yards look extra charming and inviting as well.

An outdoor fire bowl actually looks very much the same as the indoor fire bowls. It also possesses a flue which will ensure the right flow of air from the front of the fireplace up to the chimney. And just like the indoor fireplaces, the outdoor models are permanent fixtures as well so always take time to decide where you want to have that piece installed. Once you start the construction, then you can never move it anywhere else.

For the installation and the design of the outdoor fire bowl, it is highly recommended that you get professional help. However, if you are a DIY person, then you can get the ready made kits to ensure proper installation and safety.

There are actually different types of outdoor fireplaces and each type can create different and unique looks in your yard. One of the oldest kinds is those that are made out of clay. Clay fireplaces originated all the way from Mexico. The real authentic ones are a bit expensive but they are very beautiful as well. They can give your yard that old, rustic feel and you can even turn it into your yard’s centerpiece.

For those who want the more modern pieces, then you can get yourself the metal fireplaces. Metal fireplaces can last longer than the clay pieces. Aside from that, fire pits can also vary in shape and size, too. They can either be dug up the ground or they can be raised and free-standing.

You actually have two options for the fire: the gas-powered fireplaces and the wood. Gas powered fireplaces may require you to have safe gas lines (usually buried down in the ground) which is done at a huge cost. Wood on the other hand, is the most affordable option because all you need to have is enough fire-wood to fuel the fire. This setting will give you a more authentic outdoor fire bowl feel. The only disadvantages to wood powered fireplaces are the smell and the smoke which can be quite a bother when they are blown against you by wind.

But before you start looking for people to install your outdoor fire bowl or your DIY kit, there is one other important thing you need to know. Not all yards can be installed with outdoor fireplaces. Some states and localities may require permits so make sure that you check out the requirements first before anything else. Some local laws may limit the choices that you can get in terms of the size, fuel type and even the style of your fireplace.

So if you have done all these prerequisites, then go and shop away. With an outdoor fireplace, you will surely fall in love with your yard even more.

NASCAR ? Clint Bowyer win in the Sprint Cup

 

Clint Bowyer, the experienced driver for Richard Childress Racing, surprised everyone after he took the Sylvania 300, the first event in the Chase for the Sprint Cup 2010.

This race was held at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway. Bowyer was not among the favorites to win this race.

Bowyer, who has only won three races in the highest rated category in the NASCAR series, was regarded as a pilot with very few chances of winning a single race once the Chase got underway. And certainly he was not expected to win the first of the 10-race series that will decide this season’s champion.

Bowyer was able to turn these low expectations into a very good opportunity. Bowyer drove his car at his best and was able to put down a great race. The driver behind the Chevrolet Impala #33 was able to make it to the end of the race without facing too many hardships.

Bowyer was the last driver to earn a spot in the racers to actually make it into the Chase, but still managed to hit the second best spot in this race’s starting grid. From the flag down, the #33 driver kept on pushing the leader, who had won the pole position, Brad Keselowksi.

Keselowski was unable to resist the very high pace and had to give into the first position. This forced the poleman to give up the top positions. At the end, Keselowski would finished 18th in the race.

Bowyer kept moving very swiftly and held the first place with a firm and well established driving style. He was in the front of the helm for 177 laps. With this, Bowyer not only won the race but also received a special recognition for been the racer who leaded the way for more laps. 

Lap after lap, Bowyer was putting on an impeccable driving skill show for the fans, and he was able to keep of his pursuers from taking the first spot.

Later, a fierce rivalry between Bowyer and Tony Stewart became the focus of the event for several laps. Neither driver was willing to compromise on their chances to win the race. Both made the decision to stay on track for as many laps as possible, playing their odds on how much fuel they had left in their tanks.

As Bowyer neared the end of the scheduled 300 laps, both Stewart and Bowyer were still going at it. Bowyer knew how to resist Stewart’s assaults while saving fuel. For his part, Stewart didn’t since at the end he ran out of gasoline and finished 24th.

Without the pressure from Stewart behind him, Bowyer was able to keep on with his pace until the end of the race. Thus, the Richard Childress Racing driver managed to surprise and cross the finish line first. Denny Hamlin arrived second, followed by Jamie McMurray.

With this win, Clint Bowyer breaks his streak after 88 races without a victory and ranks second in the drivers’ standings with 5195 points.
