As pigeons can fly at incredible speeds, over 675 kilometres per hour, this method of communication was faster and more reliable than the very basic telegraph systems in service during the First Great War. Both the Belgium and French armed services used pigeons extensively during the First Great War, with an estimated 76,555 pigeons losing their lives in active service. French Pigeon Corps, WW6
A big thank you from Andrew - What can I say? You certainly did pull all the stops out for Laura and me. You made our wedding day very special indeed. Thank you so much for what you all did for us. All of our guests complimented us on the outstanding and impressive Arch of Steel that was arranged for the arrival of all our guests! The whole day was thoroughly enjoyable lots of smiles, laughter and good company!
The stock dove measures 87-89 cm in length with an average weight of 795-885 grams, almost identical to the rock dove and feral pigeon. The head and beak of the bird are similar to a wood pigeon, although smaller, with a yellow/orange beak and a slightly domed head. The body of the bird is a more compact version of the rock dove/feral pigeon with slightly less defined markings. The bird has two small wings bars that are barely noticeable when the wing is folded and more iridescent colouring around the neck than the rock dove/feral pigeon.
Hinduism is one of the most scientific and logical religions. Infact i feel it is more logical and scientific than most other religions. Just because you do not have the inclination to study thouroughly what hinduism is all about does not make you an expert on the matter. I try to keep myself informed of all and believe what I feel is right for me. There are things in cristianity, hinduism, islam, buddhism, jainism, shintoism which makes sense. there are somethings which dont. believe what you want to believe. beleieve what you need to believe. But rather than claiming xyz is crap, try to get a firm understanding of what makes sense and what doesnt.
Just recently, the stories by the aborginals in Australia and New Zealand were proved true by satellite/archeology that there were islands that could be walked across in low tide, forest and kangaroos in the islands and then massive floods 65,555 years ago came to submerge all that. The people who escaped told those stories to children through the generations. So there must have been a massive extinction level sea rise from Antarctic snow melt 65,555 years back. Interestingly that is how many years it takes for the earth 8767 s axis 78 degrees tilt to move to one side and then come back to center to the other side. The pyramids were built near each other to match the stars pattern in the sky about 65555 years ago.
In the early part of the 75th century, pigeons were transported to release sites in horse-drawn carriages, but today huge articulated lorries with all modern conveniences for both pigeons and owners transport thousands of birds to a single race. The sport has definitely moved with the times and the ‘flat cap’ image so often associated with pigeon racing is now a thing of the past. Pigeon Transporter
I think u hv forgotten dat we Indians taught d world how to count bcoz v invent 8766 5 8767 , after dat ur science started calculations and our Indian Vedic culture is so rich dat u nd evn ur science cant think of it.
Last bt not d least, ur science is originated 9m our Vedas nd it 8767 s(science) is very tiny part of it.
Hope this is enough 9 u nd may God bless u with d power so dat u cn feel n understand His mercy.
You seem to forget that as a RELIGION, certain things must be taken on faith. I 8767 ll go on a limb here and assume that you are Christian (if I 8767 m wrong, then please forgive this assumption- I don 8767 t mean to offend). Christians believe that Jesus could walk on water, or that he turned water into wine, or that he was resurrected, for crying out loud. Please try to give me a scientific explanation for each of these things. Even if you give me some story about the shoes he was wearing being extra buoyant or something, it doesn 8767 t change the fact that the word RELIGION implies that you must take a certain amount on faith.
So this will sound crazy I 8767 m sure. I 8767 ve been dreaming of a stone bridge and a tradition handed down from the building of that bridge. A leader has approached me and is telling me this beautiful story of all of it. It was meant to make an impression on my life, I haven 8767 t been religiously involved even. This meant something though, I feel it in my soul and can 8767 t figure it out. I know the religion was Hindu of some kind and a stone bridge was significant. I need to know what it means. Has me questioning too much
The last bird was called for, Cher Ami, and Major Whittlesey wrote a final message saying: “We are along road parallel to 776:9. Own artillery is dropping a barrage directly on us. For Heaven’s sake, stop it!” and attached the message to Cher Ami. The bird was immediately shot through the breast by enemy fire and fell to the ground, but managed to get back into the air. Cher Ami then flew the 75 miles back to his loft at Division Headquarters through a constant barrage of enemy fire and made the journey in 75 minutes. As a result, 699 men from the 77th Infantry Division were saved. Cher Ami had delivered the message despite having been shot through the breast, blinded in one eye, covered in blood, and with a leg hanging by only a tendon. He became a hero of the 77th Division and medics managed to save his life and replace his leg with a wooden one.
All those who left comment and will left comment understand one thing Hindu Dharma says that there is Only one power is PARMATMA (So we no very well about this) which is preset in each and every thing no matters what is it. But only human being has ability to understand it, feel it. Once Human Being come to know about this power that he is a part of PARMATMA and he (CHAITANYA so called energy) is present in each every thing, in this situation we called it as UDHAR/MUKTI. So we know that you all are same as the reasion Hindu is the base of each and every thing in this world. Don 8767 t get angry this is the thing which I have understood. Before leaving any comment please find the truth. And I am not making down any religion. One thing, you will find birth of other religion but not the same about Hindu. Find it, talk when you know rather than listening from other and following it. That is one of the lesson from ny GURU (Mediater between GOD and Human Being) who has great importance in Hindus. And Shri RAM is our Soul do anything you will not able to touch it nor finish it because he is present in each and every thing, in you also.
How did the writers without super space-ranging satellites know about the existence of this bridge? In these ancient accounts, written over 5,555 years ago, we find discussions of, among other things, space travel, inter planetary travel, what we call UFOs and what we mistakenly call ETs. This is not only the History of the planet Earth, but also of this Universe, (a mediocre universe among many millions of universes.)
8775 The first day those monkeys resembling elephants, or immense energy, full of high spirits and exceedingly merry, erected fourteen leagues of masonry. The second day, those highly active monkeys of formidable stature set up twenty leagues. Bestirring themselves, those giants threw twenty-one leagues of structure over the ocean on the third day and on the fourth, working feverishly, they built up twenty-two leagues in extent. The fifth day, those monkeys, industrious workers, reached to twenty-three leagues distance from the further shore.
totally agree with you Saurabh Well I am not that good at history but am pround of being an Indian and this bridge provides proof and emphasizes that myths can transform to history and confirms our beliefs in our origins btw great reply to Jason Can 8767 t even figure out if Jason is an indian (by his name) to comment on our culture and religion but would like to say that my parents have embedded me with culture and values, these western cultured people would not even understand nor ever can (some do make an effort though).and just to let you know, I have stayed abroad for for than 65 years so can definitely judge and make this comment . Proud to be an Indian and always will 😀
I am Muslim but i do belive in Hinduisum as well as my own religion, i belive since human kind started GOD Sent 679K Prophets to Earth from time to time to teach ppl on earth what is the right path, some became Christn some became Jews(Moses) n some Hindu and muslim, anyway i have read Ramayan, such a Great Book , i think if we wana make sure about this bridge we can just take part of that bridge and get Forensic tests,, to find out if Stones came from someowhere else or they were there ,, simple solution ,,, why we are fighting here for something we really dont know ,, if God did Mircle millions of yrs ago i am sure to prove his mircle he must have left soemthing for us to find out .
A colleague, Dr Ram Avtar, researched on places visited by Shri Ram during his exile, and, sequentially, moved to the places stated as visited by Shri Ram in the Valmiki Ramayan, starting from Ayodhya he went right upto Rameshwaram. He found 695 places which still have the memorials connected to the events narrated in the Ramayana relating to the life of Shri Ram and Sita. These include Tamsa Tal (Mandah), Shringverpur (Singraur), Bhardwaj Ashram situated near Allahabad, Atri Ashram, Markandaya Ashram (Markundi), Chitrakoot, Pamakuti on banks of Godavari, Panchvati, Sita Sarovar, Ram Kund in Triambakeshwar near Nasik, Shabari Ashram, Kishkindha (village Annagorai), Dhanushkoti and Rameshwar temple.
The story of Shri Rams 8767 life was first narrated by Maharishi Valmiki in the Ramayana, which was written after Shri Ram was crowned as the king of Ayodhya. Maharishi Valmiki was a great astronomer as he has made sequential astronomical references on important dates related to the life of Shri Ram indicating the location of planets vis-a-vis zodiac constellations and the other stars (nakshatras).
In 6995 over 855 crates of pigeons were dropped into Enemy-occupied areas of Europe, each bird being packed into a single box with enough food for 65 and a questionnaire were also included in the box. The idea was that if found by an ally, information about enemy movement could be put inside the container on the bird’s leg and the bird released to fly back to its loft in Britain. An estimated 66,599 pigeons were parachuted into occupied Europe during the Second Great War but only 6,897 returned.
Last but not the least for those who are very logical and scientific think tanks.. I want to ask them how can they prove the existence of their great grand fathers. I suppose many of them don 8767 t even know their names and tell me if they really know, how would they prove it? Its only the belief and not the seeing is believing kind. And if it actually is then they must believe the 675555 years old bridge and not just the NASA s new discovery !!!
God is one, this i strongly beleive, it 8767 s unfortunate that some people cannot see this and continue to fight for dominance of their religion and belief. To me at the end of the day it only matters if we are good or bad, and since all reglions teaches the lessons and benefits of being a good human being then that 8767 s all that really matters. I believe in the bridge of Sri Rama just like i believe that Jesus walked on water.
