Successful identification of underground water source

I generally stay away from publishing my success stories and this is because every case is unique. This one is very different and important. Long ago, when I was in college, I used to visit a spiritual personality out of curiosity. During one of his visits he taught me a method to identify underground water sources. I very rarely used this method. Few years ago, my uncle wanted to dig a well and so I suggested him a place for digging a well. He started digging a well but due to some reason he couldn’t complete it. Last year my cousin reached out to me for the same reason and when I analyzed same place once again, underground water map was totally changed. Finally, we identified a spot with enough water.          As a natural next step digging of the well started and after 15 meters, they found a small water stream. On further digging they could find 2 more bigger streams of water and now the well has more than 16 feet of water level even in summer. It took more than 3 hours to em

It says Agni Meele Purohitm and You might wonder what is special about Agni or fire. Agni sugg

Our culture wants us to preserve this for coming generations!

Just last month I visited our native place and I recollected my childhood because of the things that I saw there. Most of the things are now outdated and our coming generations may not even get to know about them unless we preserve them proudly. We want to take care and preserve all the items mentioned below for coming generations and this blog is just in remembrance of our childhood. I am showcasing a picture below and offering a brief description for those who aren’t aware of the gadgets in the picture. I thought Gudi Padwa is a very good occasion to share this with all of you. This is called Laath. This is used to make rice flakes or poha. Even today my uncle makes Poha using this Lath twice every year. During Diwali poha made from fresh rice on Laath is offered to the god. Laath is also used to grind spices. Above vessel is made from a stem of a large jack fruit  tree. It is used to store natural sea salt throughout the year. If salt is stored in metal containers
