It inspired me to watch my breath and enlighten me. Suprabhatham 🌹🌹 2) C V Subbaraman, Mysuru " The poet Nettimaiyar asked Ugra Pandyan a very relevant question : "Is this right, O lord rich in victories, This ruthless taking of other men's lands While being very sweet to proteges?" The chieftains of the Sangha period respected the poets." Can we now choose to send some poets to President XI of China in the East and Imran Khan in the West instead of moving troops to the borders? ***. *** " 3) Vathsala Jayaraman " It was a fine collection from Shri Babusenan about the King and poets and poets were able to save many from the anger of chieftain. We have read many such stories in our non-detailed books in the school. Thank you Babusenan Sir for rewinding our gold memories.It is really refreshing."

C Readers Write What's Jupiter or Guru ? Vathsala Jayaraman Scientifically the planet Jupiter( Guru or Viyazhan in Tamil) has a lot of superlatives, largest, fastest, first, ... While it is unknown who discovered Jupiter, and while there were many other astronomers who observed the planet closely, it was Galileo who meticulously documented all his observations. The fifth planet from the Sun, Jupiter is huge, really huge. If we combine all the other planets – Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune - this mass will be less than half the matter of Jupiter. It has a radius of 69,911 km. (Earth is 6,371 km) Eleven Earths side by side will span Jupiter’s diameter If the Jupiter was a hollow ball about 1,300 Earths would fit in.A long time, roughly 4.5 billion years ago, just after our Sun formed, the remaining debris gathered into planets. Jupiter ended up gathering most of the swirling gas and dust. Yes, one year on Jupiter is equal to 12 years on Earth. That’s how long it takes for Jupiter to orbit the Sun. Jupiter does not have seasons as we do have on earth because it is rotating just a bit-a mere 3 degrees." V T Panchapagesan adds : " Some Statistics are given about our Star, and its Planets. Sun diameter is 864000 miles. Jupiter is 88736 miles Saturn. Is 75000 miles Earth. 7926 miles Venus. 7519 miles Mars. 4200 miles Mercury. 3032 miles There is only one satellite for earth which is Moon Its diameter is 2160 miles... Multiply 108 to its diameter gives distance from earth is 234000 miles. Sun is 93500000 miles. From earth. Surya Siddhanta, 400 AD an ancient astronomy text talks of the distance between the earth and moon.
