As President Abraham Lincoln Entered To Give His Inaugural Address……
One Man Stood Up, He Was A Rich Aristocrat. He Said,”Mr. Lincoln, You Should Not Forget That Your Father Used to make Shoes for My Family”….And the Whole Senate Laughed,They Thought They Had Made a Fool of Lincoln…But Certain People Are Made Of A Totally Different Kettle.Lincoln Looked At the Man Directly In the Eyes and Said”Sir, I Know That My father used To Make Shoes for YourFamily, And There Will Be Many Others Here, Because He made Shoes the Way Nobody Else Can. He Was A Creator. His Shoes Were Not Just Shoes He Poured His Whole Soul Into Them.I Want To Ask You, Have You Any Complaint?? Because I Know How To Make Shoes Myself. If You Have Any Complaint I Can Make You Another Pair Of Shoes.But As Far As I Know, Nobody Has Ever Complained About My Father’s Shoes. He Was A Genius, A Great Creator And IAm Proud Of My Father”.The Whole Senate Was Struck DumbThey Could Not Understand What Kind Of Man Abraham Lincoln Was. He Was Proud Because His Father Did His Job So Well That Not Even a Single Complaint Had Ever Been Heard”
Remember, No One Can Hurt Us without our Consent””It is not what happens to us That Hurts Us, It Is Our Response That Hurts Us””There are people out there whose only job is to hurt others. Don’t give them a reason to have so much workon their hands.”
Bhojpur is situated on the Betwa River, 28 km from Bhopal, the state capital of Madhya Pradesh.
The site is located on sandstone ridgestypical of central India, next to a deep gorge through which the Betwa River flows. Two large dams, constructed of massive hammer-dressed stones, were built in the eleventh century to divertand block the Betwā, so creating a large lake. The approximate size of the lake is shown in the site plan given here.
Bhojpur takes its name from kingBhoja(reg. c. 1000–1055 CE), the most celebrated ruler of the Paramāra dynasty.There is no archaeological evidence from Bhojpur before the eleventh century, a fact confirmed by local legends which recount how Bhoja made a vow to build a series of dams “to arrest the streams of nine rivers and ninety-nine rivulets”. A location was found in the kingdom that allowed the king to fulfil this vow and the dams were duly built at Bhojpur.
Although the dams were constructed ofcyclopeanmasonry, one of them was opened on the orders of Hoshang Shah of Malwain the fifteenth century. According to Persian chronicles, he ordered the dam to be broken at the request of local merchants in Bhopal andVidishawhose caravans were being raided by bandits taking refuge at an inaccessible spot protected by the lake.
Bhojpur is famous for the incomplete Bhojeśvar temple dedicated to Shiva. The temple houses one of the largestliṅga-s in India, 5.5 m (18 ft) talland 2.3 m (7.5 ft) in circumference. It is crafted out a single rock.
The building is under the protection of theArchaeological Survey of India.The attribution of the temple to Bhoja is based onthe testimony of Merutuṅga, who reports in the Prabandhacintamaṇi that Bhoja bestowed on the poet Māgha “all the merit of the new Bhojasvāmin temple that he was about to build himself”, and then “set out for the country of Mālava”.
The style of the sculpture on the building confirms an early to mid-eleventh-century date for the structure.The building as it stands consists of the inner cella orgarbhagṛha, supported by massive pillars, surmounted with an elegant corbelled dome. The outer walls and superstructure of the temple were never built……
