On the arrival of an English team which was considered stronger than the local cricketing team under the Maharaja Bhupinder Singh, the local team apparently devised a strategy to defeat their opponents. During a dinner hosted by the Royal team, the visitors were introduced to a rather novel “culinary” custom. The hosts convinced their guests that this was indeed the norm in the region. The ploy was successful and the visiting team lost the match. What originated as a result of this?
The overall scene is within a room where, at an open end on the left, a wide-eyed bull stands over a woman grieving over a dead child in her arms.The centre is occupied by a horse falling in agony as it had just been run through by a spear or javelin. A human skull overlays the horse's body.A bull appears to gore the horse from underneath. The bull's head is formed mainly by the horse's entire front leg which has the knee on the ground. The leg's knee cap forms the head's nose. A horn appears within the horse's breast.The bull's tail forms the image of a flame with smoke rising from it, seemingly appearing in a window created by the lighter shade of gray surrounding it.Under the horse is a dead, apparently dismembered soldier; his hand on a severed arm still grasps a shattered sword from which a flower grows.On the open palm of the dead soldier is a stigma, a symbol of martyrdom derived from the stigmata of Christ.A light bulb blazes in the shape of an evil eye over the suffering horse's head (the bare bulb of the torturer's cell.) To the upper right of the horse, a frightened female figure, who seems to be witnessing the scenes before her, appears to have floated into the room through a window. Her arm, also floating in, carries a flame-lit lamp. The lamp is positioned very close to the bulb, and is a symbol of hope, clashing with the lightbulb.From the right, an awe-struck woman staggers towards the center below the floating female figure. She looks up blankly into the blazing light bulb.Daggers that suggest screaming replace the tongues of the bull, grieving woman, and horse.A bird, possibly a dove, stands on a shelf behind the bull in panic.On the far right, a figure with arms raised in terror is entrapped by fire from above and below. What is described above?

Recipe for? Take the juice from one bottle of that Ol' Janx Spirit. Pour into it one measure of water from the seas of Santraginus V Allow three cubes of Arcturan Mega-gin to melt into the mixture (it must be properly iced or the benzene is lost). Allow four litres of Fallian marsh gas to bubble through it (in memory of all those happy Hikers who have died of pleasure in the Marshes of Fallia). Over the back of a silver spoon float a measure of Qualactin Hypermint extract, redolent of all the heady odours of the dark Qualactin Zones. Drop in the tooth of an Algolian Suntiger. Watch it dissolve, spreading the fires of the Algolian suns deep into the heart of the drink. Sprinkle Zamphour. Add an olive. Drink...but very carefully.
According to Scholars, the use of X dates back to the pre-vedic, harappan empire. The ancient Indian treatise on sex, Kama Sutra, refers to X’s fragrance and aphrodisiac qualities. Today more people in India are addicted to it than to cigarettes and bidis. What is X?
They were a coalition of various groups which was against the monarchy and favoured a re-installation of the short-lived Kanûn-ı Esâsî constitution.They were progressive, modernist and opposed to the status quo. The movement built a rich tradition of dissent that shaped the intellectual, political and artistic life .Many members were not only active in the political arena, but were also artists, administrators, or scientists.The name of this group gives rise to a term in the English language. What term?
X first called his cartoon feature, originally involving sports feats, Champs and Chumps, and it premiered on December 19, 1918, in the New York Globe. X began adding items not related to sports, and in October 1919 he changed the title to Y. When the Globe folded in 1923, X moved to the New York Evening Post. That same year, he hired Norbert Pearlroth as his researcher, and Pearlroth spent the next 52 years of his life in the New York Public Library, working ten hours a day and six days a week working. X and Y?
X is a brand of ice cream, established by Polish immigrants Reuben and Rose Mattus in the Bronx, New York, in 1961. The name, X, does not derive from any of the North Germanic languages; it is simply two made-up words meant to look Scandinavian to American eyes.Daughter Doris Hurley told PBS documentary An Ice Cream Show that her father Reuben Mattus sat at the kitchen table for hours saying nonsensical words until he came up with a combination he liked. The reason he chose this method, was so that the name would be completely unique and original.
AGAINST YOU I WILL FLING MYSELF, UNVANQUISHED AND UNYIELDING, O DEATH! Whose epitaph?
In the West X was studied by Leonardo of Pisa. He considers the growth of an idealized (biologically unrealistic) rabbit population, assuming that: a newly-born pair of rabbits, one male, one female, are put in a field; rabbits are able to mate at the age of one month so that at the end of its second month a female can produce another pair of rabbits; rabbits never die and a mating pair always produces one new pair (one male, one female) every month from the second month on. The puzzle that he posed was: how many pairs will there be in one year?
Jahangir's court artist Ustad Mansur specialised in depicting plants and animals. His detailed depictions of plants and animals shorn of all personal expression are extremely valuable for their scientific accuracy. Mansur was often summoned to paint foreign birds and animals brought as presents to the emperor. Why did a 1958 rediscovery of an Ustad Mansur painting in a collection at the Institute of Orientalists of the Soviet Academy of Sciences by a Russian researcher, A. Ivanov, cause a ‘flutter’ at the subsequent XII International Ornithological Congress at Helsinki?
Welsh tradition tells of a dagger named Carnwennan and a spear named Rhongomyniad that belonged to ___. Carnwennan ("Little White-Hilt") first appears in Culhwch and Olwen, where it was used by ___ to slice the Very Black Witch in half. Rhongomyniad ("spear" + "striker, slayer") is also first mentioned in Culhwch, although only in passing; it appears as simply Ron ("spear") in Geoffrey's Historia.In A Middle English poem, there is mention of Clarent, a sword of peace meant for knighting and ceremonies as opposed to battle, which is stolen and then used to kill ___ by Mordred.
From the first note the vibrations from the loudspeaker made my hair stand up. The stabbing sounds from the guitar could almost break a window. When _____ started singing, he seemed like a guy who could have sprung from the head of Zeus in full armor. I immediately differentiated between him and anyone else I had ever heard. The songs weren't customary blues songs. They were perfected pieces-each song contained four or five verses, every couplet intertwined with the next but in no obvious way. They were so utterly fluid. At first they went by quick, too quick to even get. They jumped all over the place in range and subject matter, short punchy verses that resulted in some panoramic story-fires of mankind blasting off the surface of this spinning piece of plastic. Bob Dylan about whom?
Adherents to X believe that their worldview has existed since the beginnings of civilization, primarily to correct societal tendencies towards aggression and excess. They list individuals such as Lao Tzu, Epicurus, Heraclitus, The Buddha, and the pre-ecclesiastical Jesus Christ as examples of ancient prophets.More recent antecedents include pillars of American Transcendentalism such as Ralph Waldo Emerson and Walt Whitman and humanists such as Kurt Vonnegut and Mark Twain. The X belief system is essentially a modernized form of Taoism purged of all of its metaphysical and medical doctrines.It aims to assuage feelings of inadequacy that arise in societies which place a heavy emphasis on achievement and personal fortune.Consequently, simple everyday pleasures like bathing, bowling, hanging out with friends are seen as far preferable to the accumulation of wealth and the liberal spending of money as a means to achieve happiness and spiritual fulfillment.
