WHY I KILLED GANDHI – Nathuram Godse's Final Address to the Court.

Gandhiji's assassin, Nathuram Godse's Final Address to the Court.

Nathuram Godse was arrested immediately after he assassinated Gandhiji, based on a F. I. R. filed by Nandlal Mehta at the Tughlak Road Police staton at Delhi . The trial, which was held in camera, began on May 27, 1948 and concluded on February 10, 1949. He was sentenced to death. An appeal to the Punjab High Court, then in session at Simla, did not find favour and the sentence was upheld. The statement that you are about to read is the last made by Godse before the Court on the May 5, 1949. Such was the power and eloquence of this statement that one of the judges, G. D. Khosla, later wrote, "I have, however, no doubt that had the audience of that day been constituted into a jury and entrusted with the task of deciding Godse's appeal, they would have brought a verdict of 'not Guilty' by an overwhelming majority"

The Boy With 5 Pairs Of Legs

“He has short ones for sitting and climbing and long fancy ones for when he wants to run really, really fast. Cody McCasland was born without a working set of legs - but now has pairs for just about any occasion. The seven-year-old has a rare condition called Sacral Agenesis which caused deformities to his spine in the womb. He arrived without any tibia or knee bones and had to have his legs amputated below the knee at 15 months. Two months later he was fitted with his first pair of prosthetic legs, and hasn’t stopped moving since. His mother Tina, 36, said: ‘Hardly anyone takes to prosthetics so well. It was amazing - it was as if Cody had just been waitig

It's to be expected that being in an intimate relationship will inevitable bring up fears and challenges from the past.  These might include fearing not being good enough, attractive enough, wealthy enough or even feelings of abandonment.  If fears are not expected, looked at and healed, they interfere in some way or another with the health of every relationship.

Noah's Ark has been found

- By Martin Wrote for The Observer, January 16th 1994. LONDON -- Noah's Ark has been found on the Turkish-Iranian border, 32 kilometres from Mount Ararat, according to the leader of a team of scientists that has been investigating the site for six years. The Turkish government is so convinced by the findings that, after years of intransigence, it has designated the site one of special archaeological interest and agreed to its excavation next summer. The remote site contains a buried, ship-like object, resting an altitude of 2,300 metres. At 170 metres long and 45 metres wide, it conforms almost exactly to the 300 cubit by 50 cubit boat that God told Noah to build, according to Genesis 6 in the Bible. On surrounding terrain, the American and Middle Eastern scientists have identified huge stones with holes carved at one end, which they believe are "drogue-stones," dragged behind ships in the ancient world to stabilise them (See Pic 3.) . Radar soundings indicate unusual levels of iron-oxide distribution.

Franklin: The Lost State of America.

There was a vote and on the 23rd of the month they declared the lands independent. The state of Franklin was born.

Mahatma Gandhi needs no long introduction. Everyone knows about the man who lead the Indian people to independence from British rule in 1947.

Who am I? – ADOLF HITLER

WHO AM I?

I was born in one country, raised in another. My father was born in another country. I was not his only child. He fathered several children with numerous women. I became very close to my mother, as my father showed no interest in me. My mother died at an early age from cancer. Although my father deserted me and my mother raised me, I later wrote a book idolising my father not my mother. Later in life, questions arose over my real name. My birth records were sketchy. No one was able to produce a legitimate, reliable birth certificate.

They are agile, strong, active dogs, both physically and mentally, which revel in new experiences. The flip side is that they bore easily and will unintentionally find trouble while looking for activities to occupy themselves with. The Cattle Dog is very organized; many are known for putting their own toys away after playing.

The drawings of Leonardo da Vinci.

"The noblest pleasure is the joy of understanding." - Leonardo

Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci ( pronunciation (help·info), April 15, 1452 – May 2, 1519) was an Italian polymath, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, painter, sculptor, architect, botanist, musician and writer. Leonardo has often been described as the archetype of the Renaissance man, a man whose unquenchable curiosity was equaled only by his powers of invention. He is widely considered to be one of the greatest painters of all time and perhaps the most diversely talented person ever to have lived. According to art historian Helen Gardner, the scope and depth of his interests were without precedent and "his mind and personality seem to us superhuman, the man himself mysterious and remote"
