Villagers stumble upon rare idol

Tag: 南京spa论坛

first_imgVillagers stumbled upon a rare and beautiful idol of Mahavira, believed to be dating back to the 9th-10th century AD while levelling a field at the Parahata village in Odisha’s Jagatsinghpur district. Villagers installed the three-feet-high idol, discovered five days ago, in the village temple. A couple of years ago, a one-foot high statue of the Buddha made of red brass was also found while a farmer was tilling his field.“A contractor required soil to level a canal road passing through our village. Bhaguni, a villager, volunteered to even out his field. When the bucket teeth of the earthmover hit some hard substance, we advised the earthmover’s operator not to apply force. Then we carefully dug the area around the statue and brought it out,” said Parahata villager Bhawani Panda.Villagers say they have come across many earthen pots and other unrecognisable earthen items while levelling the field. They wonder if a proper excavation would reveal more.“The idol is in standing position on a lotus pedestal. We generally find single idols of Mahavira. Statues with images of deities as well as devotees carved on stone were widely in circulation in the 9th-10th century AD,” said Sunil Patnaik, archaeologist with the Odisha Institute of Maritime and South-East Asian Studies.last_img read more

first_imgJaspirt Bumrah’s five-wicket haul helped India beat England at Trent Bridge but West Indian great Michael Holding wasn’t much impressed.Holding, while commentating during the Test series between Indian and England, had said that he does not think Bumrah is very good new-ball bowler. He also added that he had second thoughts about picking Bumrah for Test matches in England.The commentator faced a lot of criticism after Bumrah took 5/85 in the second innings as India defeated England by 203 runs to win their first match in the ongoing five-match series. India currently trail England 1-2 after three matches.Jasprit Bumrah’s five-wicket haul scripts India’s 7th Test victory in EnglandHolding has once again reiterated that he will not give the new ball to Bumrah.Speaking to The Times of India, Holding said: “I would still not have him as my opening bowler. Ishant Sharma and Mohammed Shami do a bit more with the brand new ball and they will remain my opening bowlers in Bhuvneshwar Kumar’s absence.”Holding added that Bumrah would be more effective with an older ball.”What I have seen is he can get the ball to straighten from wide of the crease and is more effective with the slightly older ball,” Holding said.”What you have to remember is that in England, with so much assistance from both pitch and atmosphere for the quick bowlers, Bumrah will get the odd ball to straighten on the right-handers’ off-stump, although his action doesn’t enhance his ability to do so. The same delivery in South Africa, Australia, etc would not straighten as it can tend to do in England. He has pace, though, which is a welcome asset that cannot be bought.”advertisementHolding also took some heat for critcising Hardik Pandya for not being a good all-rounder. Pandya was also one of the stars at Trent Bridge as he took a five-wicket haul in the first innings and scored a fifty.Holding said he didn’t criticise Pandya but the people who compare the all-rounder to Kapil Dev.”Please go back and listen to or read what I have said about Pandya. I was more critical of the people who were telling me he is the next Kapil Dev, not of Pandya himself. I have gone on to say that he is not the man to fill that sort of role as yet, batting at No. 6 and bowling. What I am glad also to see is that I read somewhere that he had said he doesnt want to be known as the new Kapil Dev; he is Hardik Pandya, which is the right attitude,” Holding said.last_img read more
