Dancing Lord Ganesha! 

Dancing Lord Ganesha! Beautiful bronze statue which is more than 2000 years old is kept in the state museum of Orissa state in Bhubaneswar. Lord Ganesha also known asGanapati,Vinayaka and is one of the best-known and most worshiped deities in theHindu pantheon. Borne as a younger son of Lord Shiva and Parvati Ganesha is widely revered as the remover of obstacles, hencecalled as VIGNAHARTA (vignameans obstacles Harta means - remover). As the god of beginnings, he is honoured at the start of rites and ceremonies. Hence he symbolises all auspiciousness and bestows all wishes so called as SIDDHIVINAYAK as well. Holy scriptures like Mahabharata and Puranas were narrated by Ved Vyasa and he wrote them in Badrinath. Just a glimpse of the Lord pleases your heart, mind and soul and takes all your obstacles away.

De hoy, en #Quito. Camina

De hoy, en #Quito. Caminando por estas calles en sube y baja, me di cuenta de haca mucho (pero mucho) que no estaba entre montaas, que me haba desacostumbrado a mirar el horizonte y verlas ah, entrelazadas con la ciudad. Como contaba en mi story, esta es mi segunda vez en la ciudad, pero es como si fuera la primera porque la otra vez llovi tanto que apenas si tengo un par de fotos. As que la estoy caminando, descubriendo a mi ritmo (que es lento y agitado porque no estoy acostumbrada a tanta subida) y sobre todo, disfrutando un montn. Haca rato adems que no viajaba sola. Que vivan las segundaa oportunidades. #ViajeconPasaporte con @holidayinexpress #viajar #viajeros #deviaje #blogdeviajes #travelblogger #traviajar #AmoViajar #solotraveler #paisaje #upanddown #visitEcuador #ItravelTheworld #Instatravel #IloveLatinAmerica #street #calles #callejear #HotelesIHG

An extract on #travelblogger

Apollo is a common theme in Greek and Roman art and also in the art of the Renaissance. The earliest Greek word for a statue is "delight" (, agalma), and the sculptors tried to create forms which would inspire such guiding vision. Greek art puts into Apollo the highest degree of power and beauty that can be imagined. The sculptors derived this from observations on human beings, but they also embodied in concrete form, issues beyond the reach of ordinary thought. The naked bodies of the statues are associated with the cult of the body that was essentially a religious activity. The muscular frames and limbs combined with slim waists indicate the Greek desire for health, and the physical capacity which was necessary in the hard Greek environment. The statues of Apollo embody beauty, balance and inspire awe before the beauty of the world. The evolution of the Greek sculpture can be observed in his depictions from the almost static formal Kouros type in early archaic period, to the representation of motion in a relative harmonious whole in late archaic period. In classical Greece the emphasis is not given to the illusive imaginative reality represented by the ideal forms, but to the analogies and the interaction of the members in the whole, a method created by Polykleitos. Finally Praxiteles seems to be released from any art and religious conformities, and his masterpieces are a mixture of naturalism with stylization.

With new coach Brad Gilbert on board, Agassi began to employ more of a tactical, consistent approach, which fueled his resurgence. He started slowly in 1994, losing in the first week at the French Open and Wimbledon. Nevertheless, he emerged during the hard-court season, winning the Canadian Open. His comeback culminated at the 1994 US Open with a five-set fourth-round victory against compatriot Michael Chang. He then became the first man to capture the US Open as an unseeded player, beating Michael Stich in the final. Along the way, he beat 5 seeded players. In 1995, Agassi shaved his balding head, breaking with his old "image is everything" style. He competed in the 1995 Australian Open (his first appearance at the event) and won, beating Sampras in a four-set final. Agassi and Sampras met in five tournament finals in 1995, all on hardcourt, with Agassi winning three. Agassi won three Masters Series events in 1995 (Cincinnati, Key Biscayne, and the Canadian Open) and seven titles total. He compiled a career-best 26-match winning streak during the summer hard-court circuit, with the last victory being in an intense late night four-set semifinal of the US Open against Boris Becker. The streak ended the next day when Agassi lost the final to Sampras. Agassi reached the world no. 1 ranking for the first time in April 1995. He held that ranking until November, for a total of 30 weeks. Agassi skipped most of the fall indoor season which allowed Sampras to surpass him and finish ranked no. 1 at the year-ending ranking. In terms of win/loss record, 1995 was Agassi's best year. He won 73 matches while losing 9 and was also once again a key player on the United States' Davis Cup winning teamthe third and final Davis Cup title of Agassi's career. 1996 was a less successful year for Agassi, as he failed to reach any Grand Slam final. He suffered two early-round losses at the hands of compatriots Chris Woodruff and Doug Flach at the French Open and Wimbledon, respectively, and lost to Chang in straight sets in the Australian and US Open semifinals. At the time, Agassi blamed the Australian Open loss on the windy conditions, but later said in his biography that he had lost the match on purpose, as he did not want to play Boris Becker, whom he would have faced in that final. The high point for Agassi was winning the men's singles gold medal at the Olympic Games in Atlanta, beating Sergi Bruguera of Spain in the final. Agassi also successfully defended his singles titles in Cincinnati and Key Biscayne. 1997 was the low point of Agassi's career. His wrist injury resurfaced, and he played only 24 matches during the year. He later confessed that he started using crystal methamphetamine at that time, allegedly on the urging of a friend. He failed an ATP drug test, but wrote a letter claiming the same friend had spiked a drink. The ATP dropped the failed drug test as a warning. In his autobiography, Agassi admitted that the letter was a lie. He quit the drug soon after. At this time Agassi was also in a failing marriage with actress Brooke Shields and had lost interest in the game. He won no top-level titles, and his ranking sank to world no. 141 on November 10, 1997, prompting many to believe that his run as one of the sport's premier competitors was over and that he would never again win any significant championships.
