Shri Kalinath Kaleshwar Temple is located in Kangra, Himachal Pradesh, about 2 kms away from Village Prayagpur. There is no direct bus service. Local bus service is limited and provides two routes at different times in day and evening to remote village.
This temple is created by Pandavas during their exile Incognito when they were not supposed to be noticed by anyone and if so found, their exile will stand nullified. Here, they were spotted by people and soon left after building this temple which is present near river Beas. There are two complexes devoted to Lord Shiva in this temple and both are majestic in their sense. I do not want to mention further the nature of Shivlings because I attribute personal experience a great process, healing and learning.
Chakleshwar Mahadev Temple is located on the way to Jwala Ji in village Dhera – Gopipur. There is no bus service to this village but the temple is hardly 2 kms away from the main road. There is sign near the main road that points towards this temple.
I have been following copyright.gov.in from year 2011 when I finished some of my poems. I wanted them to be published and therefore, required a copyright. Today, it is third year and I am still struggling to get copyright and ISBN.
The above filed RTI to PMO is also pending since July 2013 till today August 24, 2013 has following complaint:
“copyright.gov.in Contact information provided at this Government website is misleading. Both E-mail and phone number are not working. I am equally suspicious that it is falsely instructed to pay demand demand for acquiring copyright to REGISTRAR OF COPYRIGHTS, NEW DELHI is also falsely stated. I want concrete action on this.”
I may be wrong about demand draft address (I still do not know with accuracy) but I seriously got no response from PM office regarding my complaint.
I am continually struggling to get things done in right direction. Here is tweet mentioning my status as on December 11, 2012.
When will govt. put copyright website under action? http://t.co/XDTiB6Zv

When could Indian women leave her fascination for jewelry? Saundraya prem (सौन्दर्य प्रेम) or being beautiful is a fact that has jolted the people from time immemorial. As independence was gained and women emerged more to forefront, they adorned themselves something distinctively so that they could easily relate to their environment. The love for beauty is not limited to physical self of human beings, but it extends to our practices in daily life. We clean our houses and decorate it.
Every place has its distinctive personality and comes with associative trends. To ignore them, is one’s own wishful thinking but to embrace them is being unique.
While I went to many religious places, I watched people with little pendents of idols hanging around their gold chains. Similarly, some beautiful girls also wore a picture of deity in some frame weaved in black thread around their necks. People says it guards off evil eye and surely, girls look amazing wearing them.
All the shops that spans the whole pathway to different shrines, have beaded jewelry on display that reaches out to people of all age, and not limited to women only. The filigree truly shows the craftsmanship of local women. While trying to locate which works best for yourself, they are also apt at suggesting how to wear it. You can also experiment tying it around your wrist and hair.
You will be surprised by choices. The endings of each of piece is not roughly joined as one might expect from a shop at rural areas. They are securely attached with clasps. The amalgamation of different patterns and bead types make one actually confused while deciding during purchase. You can always intertwined two different bead necklaces to form further beautiful piece. I think it is not just beautiful to buy for yourself but also compliments as best gift for family friends from small shops located in interiors of tourist places.
