      It was built as a memorial to a king named Chandra. The height of this massive pillar is 22ft. it has a diameter of about 4 J/2 ft and is a solid shaft of wrought iron with an ornamental top. Its metallurgical skill haunts artistic genius for the workers and the era in which it was constructed.   The flow of writing is simply superb, different phases of the life of Chandra and Murra is just amazing. How he earn the largest empire in the world and how he lose his faith in himself is beautifully put in this book. My perception: As it is fiction novel so the writer has taken the freedom to describe the whole event of Chandra’s life 5/5.

      relations He was of the opinion that king 'Chandra* mentioned in the Meharauli iron pillar inscription was no other than Chandragupta I and consequently the first Gupta Mahārājādhirāja was the paramount ruler of almost the whole of India. His views on the early history of the Vākātakas were vitiated by this basic presumption. In her fifth cookbook, Chandra Padmanabhan shares the secret of creating perfect Dosais ranging from the tricky Ravai Dosai, to the popular Mysore Masala Dosai, to the luscious Panasa Dosai, to the succulent Halasu Dosai along with some nerve-tingling accompaniments. This book will be savoured and cherished by all epicureans/5(15).

      The Adventures of Indiana Jones is a role-playing game created by TSR, Inc., allowing players to assume the roles of Indiana Jones and his companions in various adventures. The page rulebook includes instructions on how to play the game, along with an introductory adventure based on Marvel Comics' "The Ikons of Ikammanen".It came packaged with a pair of ten-sided Country: USA. Literally it means 'a moon possessed of good rays'. Names based on Naga. 1. Nagadatta (No. 1, L. 21). One of the kings of Aryavartia defeated by first part is Naga which refers most likely to 'a holy serpent' and the second is 'datta' meaning given. Thus the full name may mean 'born by the grace of a Naga'. D.C. Sircar takes the compound as a Caturthi .
