Easter Island - Mysterious Stone Statues (Vol 2 Hidden Worlds)

Easter Island, Mysterious, Stone, Statues,


I decided to write a series of articles on the lesser know places in the world and I gave it the name Hidden World. In this series, I shared with you information about a lesser known tiny Island nation, Niue. Through this article, you come to know about this tiny but very beautiful island situated 2400 KM away from New Zealand. 

This series also represents my list of top places around the world which I will like to visit if I gets a chance to visit them. Today, I will share with you second place of this list which is Easter Island, which is a world heritage site declared by UNESCO for its 887 large stone statues known as Moais. Some of these statues are erected in a line while others are lying half-buried in different parts on the island. 


stone, Statue, Easter Island,

These stone statues are very unique in nature and we don't find similar statues anywhere around the world. These statues are created from volcanic rocks between 1100 to 1680. Today, some of the stone statues are clearly visible while others are partially visible with heads above the surface with remaining part under the surface. In 2012, excavation started to unearth the hidden part of these statues and archaeologists are able to dig much deeper in the surface to show some surpriseing images of these statues. 

Because of these wonderful stone statues many people from around the world come here to themselves witness these miracles. Today, Easter Island is part of Chile and it is 3759 KM away from main land. The best way to reach Easter Island is through its only international airport which runs daily direct flights from Chile. 


Moais,

Easter Island is a small triangular shaped Island with area of 163.6 square kms. The formation of this island is a result of volcanic eruption and we can find here three extinct volcanoes. This island is a hidden world with many mysteries because for long, this remote island was away from the reach of rest of people from other parts of the world so an unique culture developed in this nation which is still a mystery for us. 

Today, no one exactly knows why these stones were created and how the natives managed to do all this with limited resources. Though as per the assumptions, these stone statues were created in the memories of formal heads of the clan. 

Like others, I do have a dream to visit this island and myself see these large stone statues. I know that Easter Island is situated much far away from where I live but I have faith that one day, I will reach there to myself witness these wonders.

Importance of clean environment

It is very important to take care of our environment because our health and our survival on the earth directly depends on the health of our environment. It is very easy to find dirt and pollution at many places across the world and a large population of the world is living in these bad and unhygienic conditions.

People are drinking unclean drinking water and they are breathing polluted air; so, this pollution of the environment is causing many people to suffer from various health problems. Whereas if we live in a clean environment then we can live a healthy life and we can achieve this by understanding the importance of clean environment.

Sadly, we see very less being done to address this matter and we are slowly creating more polluted spaces on earth. Today, it is very hard to find clean places at several parts of the world. Slowly, the governments across the world are opening eyes to address this issue.


It is very important for every individual in this world to understand that clea…

What is Age difference of Abhishek and Aishwarya? Is Age difference really matter in Marriages?

Abhishek Bachan and Aishwarya Rai Bachan hardly need any introduction and they are the most successful and best couples of Bollywood. They married on 20-4-2007 and that time, there were speculations about their marriage that will there marriage be a success or not? Till now their married life is going very smoothly and they become proud parents of a beautiful daughter Aaradhya on 16th Nov, 2012.

The marriage of Abhishek and Aishwarya was unique in one more way. Aishwarya Rai is older than Abhishek Bachan by 2 yrs and 2 months which is the opposite of the general trend in India where mostly groom age is more than a bride. Date of Birth of Aishwarya Rai is 1st November 1973 and Date of Birth of Abhishek Bachan is February 5th, 1976. Even after six years of their marriage, this matter is the main point of many talks and at many places where the age of the girl is more than a boy, then this example is given.


Abhishek Bachan has followed the example of his father Amitabh Bachan who has marri…

Is India ready for Corona Virus (Covid 19)? What are the main precautions?

Finally, coronavirus has entered India and there are few confirmed patients at a different hospital in India. Coronavirus was the first time reported in three people in Kerala who came back from China on a special flight. However, the government of India handled these patients carefully and stopped the further spread of the virus in India. For more than a month, everything remained fine in India with no new case of coronavirus. But now the confirmation of new cases of coronavirus has ranged the danger bell in India too. 

The biggest risk in all this matter is that most of these patients have met hundreds of people before getting admitted to the hospital. Now there is a good chance that we will see new cases of coronavirus in India. In this situation, the first question that we can ask ourselves is that Is India ready for the Corona Virus? 

We all know that the Indian healthcare system is not that advanced as we see in the other parts of the world. Second, it looks that the Indian govern…

Who are Katoch?

Picture Katoch Kuldevi Kangra Fort (Jai Ho Maa)

Katoch clan is a name of one of the ruling caste from India. Katoch is a prominent Rajput (Kshatriyas) caste of India and they basically belong to Chandravanshi Rajput clan. Katochs have the main predominance in the states of the Punjab, Himachal Pradesh, Uttrakhand, and Jammu. Katoch means a good skillful swordsman and earlier, Katochs were known for their sword skills. Katoch Royal family is the oldest surviving Royal family in the world and they still live in 'Clouds End Villa', Dharamsala.


Few of great and famous kings of this clan were king Porus who fought against King Alexander, King of Kangra Sansar Chand Katoch under whom Katoch kingdom flourished and saw his golden period and Rajanaka Bhumi Chand who founded Katoch dynasty. The main link between the Katoch clan and Kangra (HP, India) can be established by the long period of rule by the Katoch kings over Kangra and adjoining areas up to Jalandhar and Multan (Pakistan).

Does the effect of coronavirus is overrated?

Today, we see the whole of the world gripped in the fear of coronavirus that some of the countries have even crippled. There is no doubt that coronavirus is a new and deadly virus and; we don’t have any cure available to fight this virus. However, still, the effects of this virus are overrated and we fear too much from it. People around the world fear so much from coronavirus that they think that its end is near. In the recent post, does the whole world die because of the coronavirus outbreak? I have tried to highlight this issue.
It is clear that it is a deadly virus and we need to take all precautions to fight it; however, fearing too much from it is not a good idea. The death rate from this virus is already much-much less than many other diseases present in our world and this virus is more dangerous for the people who are already at the risk. The steep fall in stock markets across the world also show this nature of the world that we are losing all hopes.
All this is happening becaus…
