ROCK Irrigation canal run for 21 km in Srikrishnadevaraya period
Water is considered a purifying and regenerative element in India, and is an essential element of prayer and ritual. Water is also revered because of its scarcity in western India where dry and monsoon seasons alternate and failure of the monsoon season means famine and death while plentiful water replacing irrigations sources is a time of rejoicing. This resulted in building water storage tanks that combined the practical and sacred.Since ancient times, the design of water storage has been important in India'a architecture As early as 3000 BC sophisticated systems of drains, wells and tanks were built to conserve and utilise water. Tank building as an art form began with the Hindus and developed under Muslim rule.

An example of the art of tank design is the large, geometically spectacular Stepped Tank at the Royal Center at the ruins of Vijayanagara, the capital of the Vijayanagara Empire, surrounding the modern town of Hampi. It is li

ned with green diorite and has no drain. The tank was filled by aqueduct.

Decision on Telangana driven by Rahul’s plan to split UP

Several Congress leaders feel that the Centre’s decision to form Telangana is part of a longterm strategy chalked out by the AICC general secretary, Mr Rahul Gandhi, who wants to gain hold over Uttar Pradesh by dividing it into Bundelkhand and Purvanchal.

The Centre’s decision on Telangana would bring life to agitations in the two regions of UP and would aid Mr Gandhi’s political strategies.

WHO IS ASAFJAHI First king Mir Kamaruddin

WHO IS ASAFJAHI First king Mir Kamaruddin

Asaf Jahis

The founder of this dynasty was one Mir Kamaruddin, a noble and a courtier of the Mughal Muhammad Shah, who negotiated for a peace treaty with Nadirshah, the Iranian invader; got disgusted with the intrigues that prevailed in Delhi. He was on his way back to the Deccan, where, earlier he was a Subedar. But he had to confront Mubariz Khan, as a result of a plot by the Mughal emperor to kill the former. Mubariz Khan failed in his attempt and he was himself slain. This took place in A.D.1724, and henceforth Mir Kamaruddin, who assumed the title of Nizam-ul-Mulk, conducted himself as an independent prince. Earlier, while he was one of the Ministers of the Mughal emperor Muhammad Shah, the latter conferred on him the title of Asaf Jah. Thus begins the Asaf Jahi rule over Golconda with the capital at Aurangabad. It was only during Nizam II rule that the capital of the Deccan Subha was shifted to Hyderabad reviving its importance.

The Asafjahi Nizams are generally counted as seven, though they were ten. Nasir Jung and Muzaffar Jung, son and grandson of the Nizam I who were killed by the Kurnool and Cuddapah Nawabs and Salabatjung who also ruled for a decade, were not counted by the historians though the Mughal emperors at Delhi recognised them as Subedars of the Deccan.

The Nizams of Asafjahi dynasty who ruled the Deccan are the following:

(1) Mir Kamaruddin (Nizam-ul-Mulk – Asaf Jah I) (A.D.1724–1748), (2) Nasir Jung (A.D. 1748–1751), (3) Muzaffar Jung (A.D.1750–1751), (4) Salabat Jung (AD.1751–1761), (5) Nizam Ali Khan – Asaf Jah II (A.D.1762–1803), (6) Nizam III Sikandar Jah (A.D.1803–1829), (7) Nizam IV — Nasir-ud-Daula (A.D.1829–1857), (8) Nizam V — Afzal-ud-Daula (A.D.1857–1869), (9) Nizam VI — Mir Mahaboob Ali Khan (A.D.1869–1911), and (10) Nizam VII — Mir Osman Ali Khan (AD.1911–1948 September).

Bharti Airtel, Encyclopaedia Britannica sign deal

New Delhi: A good news for all the broadband users of Bharti Airtel, as the telecom service provider has entered into an exclusive partnership with Encyclopaedia Britannica, providing its broadband users a two year free subscription, worth Rs. 6575 to Britannica online.

Bharti Airtel’s agreement with Encyclopaedia Britannica (EB) is to offer an enhanced broadband experience to its customers, especially to children and the young adults, said K. Srinivas, Joint President, Telemedia Services, Bharti Airtel.

According to Jorge Cauz President Encyclopaedia Britannica, India is one of the largest English speaking markets. Therefore, it is an important market to EB’s expansion plans in the Asia Pacific.

Bharti Airtel has taken initiatives to enhance broadband experience through new offerings like high speed Experience Plans, Cloud Computing solutions and a host of value added services. This partnership with Encyclopaedia Britannica is also part of those initiatives.

While Bharti Airtel, a group company of Bharti Enterprises, has an aggregate of around 141 million customers across its operations, Britannica has today over 100 million users worldwide and is trusted by over 4750 Universities. Following the agreement, Airtel broadband customers can now be part of Britannica’s global collaborative community.
