Often, the joke in tamil Brahmin Brahmin households is that if a woman does not want to attend a religious function like Seemantham, Ayush Homam,Poojas,Sraddha, the excuse is that she is ‘not at Home ‘meaning she is menstruating.
In Hinduism, one is prohibited from attending religious function if one has periods.
Now a Giant Panda in China has resorted to the trick of faking pregnancy to get better food and care!
The world’s first live broadcast of a panda birth has been called off after experts said the “mother” involved may have been faking the pregnancy to receive better treatment.
“Phantom pregnancies” are common among giant pandas – but keepers at her breeding centre in Sichuan province believe six-year-old Ai Hin could be exhibiting learned behaviour that marks her out as smarter than the average bear.
The giant panda started showing signs of pregnancy including reduced appetite and mobility in July, at which point she was chosen to star in a heavily-publicised first ever live birth.
But after two months of observation, experts have told state news agency Xinhua that Ai Hin’s behaviour and physiological tests returned to normal.
Wu Kongju, an expert at the Chengdu Giant Panda Breeding Research Centre where Ai Hin is kept, explained that not all “fake” pregnancies among the animals are just down to hormonal changes.
“After showing prenatal signs, the ‘mothers-to-be’ are moved into single rooms with air conditioning and around-the-clock care,” Wu told Xinhua.
“They also receive more buns, fruits and bamboo, so some clever pandas have used this to their advantage to improve their quality of life.”
A Croatian from Zagreb claims that he can make you pregnant if you stare at his eyes, if ca even be his photo in the web!
Funny fac is that people do belive him even on this count.
A good match for our on Swamijis and self -styled Gurus who talk about addressing UN and the EU!
Enjoy nuggets about him and his site.
A 47-year-old man from Zagreb in Croatia known only as Braco (pronounced Bratzo) has whipped up a storm of New Age followers across the globe.
How does he do it? With his eyes, apparently.
As reported by Gawker, His seemingly unassuming optics have had an extraordinary range of miracles attributed to them including exploding a woman’s ovaries to heal them.
He achieves these through mass ‘gazing sessions’ where loving followers gaze at this mysterious healer.
Here a just a three of his bounty of miracles:
1 .A DVD of Braco played repeatedly on a DVD player that previously did not have the capability to play on a loop.
2. A woman did not scream during a gazing event event even though a yellow jacket (very scary) was climbing up and down her leg.
3. A woman woke up in the middle of the night and ‘knew’ she had to follow Braco to Hawaii and ended up liking living on a sunny tropical island.
According to promotional videos, Braco makes no money from his work and his own website makes it clear ‘he makes no claim to being a healer and does not promise to cure anyone.’
He does make one concession to his followers that people do “commonly report warm feelings and physical sensations during a gazing experience with Braco.”
Braco’s gaze touches his visitors with peace, silence and hope. Amazing transformations happen, and many find new power, vitality and a zest for life resulting from their experience. Braco does not teach, talk or diagnose to give treatments—he simply gazes in silence and offers his gift to visitors—independent from religion, ideology, race, color and culture.
For over 19 years, Braco has dedicated his life to giving. Over this time, more and more people have come for this unique experience to improve their lives. Today Braco travels to countries globally by invitation; including Europe, Asia, Australia, Russia, and he frequently tours in the United States. Scientists have developed various theories and explanations as to why fundamental transformations happen through “the gaze.” A number of books about Braco have also been published. But Braco just holds his peace without talking or offering explanations, focusing completely on his life task—to give and help.”

Lord Shiva is reported to have attended the Labor of His Devotee and ensured safe delivery.
Shiva was worshipped by the demon ruler Tirisiran, hence Tiruchirappalli, Tirisirapuram etc. Also, since the three peaks here on this hill are occupied by Shiva, Parvati and Vinayaka, the name Tri-Shikharam or Tirisirapuram came into being. Legend has it that Shiva in the guise of a woman (mother) attended to the call of a devotee in labor, hence Matrubhuteswarar.
Tiruchirappalli is hailed as Dakshina Kailasam, as the hill is said to be 1 of the 3 pieces that flew off the Himalayas. in a fierce tussle between Adi Seshan the mythical snake and the Wind God Vayu. The other two are Triconamalee & Sree Kalahasti.
The Temple: This is a fascinating rock cut temple with several inscriptions from the Pallava and Imperial Chola period. This shrine houses Kangaala Moorthy, one of the 64 manifestations of Shiva. The approach to the temple is through a flight of covered stairs. Towards the end of the climb, the Tayumanavar temple is towards the West, and theUchipillayar temple – East.
There is a rock cut Pallava temple – Lalitankura Pallaveswaram in this hill temple complex. with several inscriptions here attributed to Mahendravarma Pallavan. In addition the Cholas, the Vijayanagar rulers and the Nayaks of Madurai have made extensive contributions here. The two storeyed Taayumaanavar temple, built on (in) a hill is a masterpiece of construction. The Chittira Mandapam houses a granite chain with nine loops.
Festivals: Six worship services are offered each day here. This well endowed temple celebrates the annual Bhrammotsavam in Chittirai. Aadi Pooram and the float festival in Panguni are also of significance here.
