However, historic terms can be appropriate when describing historic usage, or in description of past eras. * Avoid unclarified use of ambiguous terms. For example, "Asian" can be a continent-wide term, or may more specifically connote South Asian in the United Kingdom, but East Asian in the United States. Wikilinking the term, if it must be used by itself, is a good idea: Asian . Otherwise, simply be more specific. When making first reference to someone from India or having an Indian background as "Indian", wikilink the term as Indian , unless no confusion of this usage with its usage in reference to indigenous peoples of the Americas is likely to result in the context. "Russian" should not be used as a stand-in for "Soviet" when referring to a person from the era of the USSR whos ethnic identity is not known more specifically. * Physical anthropology terms such as Caucasoid, Negroid, and Mongoloid are not appropriate for contemporary ethnic, national or social identities, and should be used only in their correct scientific or historical context.

Fourteen-year-old Arrietty (Ah-ree-ET-eeh) Clock lives under the cupboards of a whitehouse with her magical godparents, Pod and Homily. As Borrowers, they survive through Pod's "borrowing" of items from the "human beans" who live in the home above the floor. One day, Pod comes home shaken after borrowing a toy tea cup. After sending Arrietty to bed, Homily learns that he has been "seen" by one of the big people — a boy who had been sent from India to live with his great-aunt while recovering from rheumatic fever. Remembering the fate of their niece Eggletina, who wandered away and never returned after (unbeknownst to her) her father had been seen and the big people had brought in a cat, Pod and Homily decide to warn Arrietty. In the course of the ensuing conversation, Homily realizes that Arrietty ought to be allowed to go borrowing with Pod.

(File:Richard Wellesley 2.JPG) Mornington seems to have caught Pitt's large political spirit in the period 1793 to 1797. That both had consciously formed the design of acquiring a great empire in India to compensate for the loss of the American colonies is not proved; but the rivalry with France, which in Europe placed Britain at the head of coalition after coalition against the French republic and empire, made Mornington's rule in India an epoch of enormous and rapid extension of British power. Robert Clive won and Warren Hastings consolidated the British ascendancy in India, but Mornington extended it into an empire. See, e.g., William McCullagh Torrens, ''The Marquess Wellesley: Architect of Empire'' (London: Chatto and Windus, 1880); P.E. Roberts, ''India Under Wellesley'' (London: G. Bell and Sons, 1929); ''M.S. Renick, Lord Wellesley and the Indian States'' (Agra: Arvind Vivek Prakashan, 1987).

In 1551 he passed through all the minor orders, and was ordained deacon, and finally priest (on 23 May). He thought of going to India as a missionary, but was dissuaded by his friends who saw that there was abundant work to be done in Rome. Accordingly he settled down, with some companions, at the hospital of San Girolamo della Carità, and while there tentatively began, in 1556, the institute with which his name is more especially connected, that of the Oratory. The scheme at first was no more than a series of evening meetings in a hall (the Oratory), at which there were prayers, hymns, readings from Scripture, from the church fathers, and from the Martyrology, followed by a lecture, or by discussion of some religious question proposed for consideration. The musical selections (settings of scenes from sacred history) were called ''oratorios''. The scheme was developed, and the members of the society undertook various kinds of mission work throughout Rome, notably the preaching of sermons in different churches every evening, a completely new idea at that time. He also spent much of his time hearing confessions, and effected many conversions in this way. M. Walsh, ed. ''Butler's Lives of the Saints''. (HarperSanFrancisco: New York, 1991), 157.

Overview Sanskaras are impressions derived from past experiences that form desires that influence future responses and behavior (karma). Extensive writing on the impressional sanskara has been done by the Indian author Meher Baba, who discusses the concept in depth in his books ''God Speaks'' and ''Discourses (Discourses (Meher Baba))''. According to him sanskaras are imprints left on the subconscious by experiences in past lives, or the present life, and which determine and condition one’s desires and actions. The Master's Glossary They are not entities with substance or shape, nor are they forces, but are understood in psychological terms only. In ''Discourses'' Meher Baba writes: The mental processes are partly dependent upon the immediately given objective situation, and partly dependent upon the functioning of accumulated '''sanskaras''' or impressions of previous experience... From the psychogenetic point of view, human actions are based upon the operation of the impressions stored in the mind through previous experience. ''Discourses'', Volume I Page 54, ''The Formation and Function of Sanskaras'', Meher Baba, 1967 i Instruktori recorded their following album '' Prodavnica tajni '' (''The Secrets Shop'') in 1988 in Novi Sad.

''Prodavnica tajni'' at Discogs Milenković co-wrote the songs "Ruski voz" ("Russian Train"), "Život je nekad siv, nekad žut" ("Life Is Sometimes Grey and Sometimes Yellow"), and "Vesela pesma" ("Merry Song"). The album marked a slight stylistic change in the band's sound: the songs were simpler, without brass instruments, frequent on the band's previous releases, based on acoustic guitars and keyboards, and the songs "Plavi safir" ("Blue Sapphire"), "Vesela pesma", "Život je nekad siv, nekad žut" and "Ruski voz" featured folk music elements. However, virtually every song on the album became a hit. The band went on another successful tour, during which they recorded the double live compilation album ''Neka svemir čuje nemir'' (''May the Universe Hear the Unrest''). The album featured new songs "Na vrhovima prstiju" ("On the Tops of Your Toes"), "Idem (Kao da ne idem, a idem)" ("I'm Going (Like I'm not Going, but I'm Going"), which is the first Bajaga i Instruktori song sung entirely by Milenković, and "Neka svemir čuje nemir", which is a cover of a traditional (traditional music) Indian song, and acoustic (acoustic music) studio versions of "Tamara" and "Tekila gerila". The live recordings were made during the band's concerts in Zagreb's Dom Sportova, held on March 6, 1989, and from Novi Sad EBU Rock Festival, and also a recording of the journalist Dražen Vrdoljak announcing the band on their concert in Kulušić, held on December 8, 1984. ''Neka svemir čuje nemir'' at Discogs The album also featured a live version of the song "Kad hodaš", written by Bajagić and originally recorded by Riblja Čorba. During the tour that followed the album release the band held two sold out concerts in Belgrade's Pionir Hall. Despite the growing nationalism the band was well accepted in all parts of Yugoslavia. The only incident on the tour happened in Split (Split, Croatia), where the fans of the football club Hajduk Split threw various objects on the stage, but after the intervention of the security the concert was continued. At the beginning of 1990, Bajaga i Instruktori performed in Timişoara, Romania, at a rock festival organized two months after the fall of Nicolae Ceauşescu.

This would provide a continuous navigable sea route in and around the Indian Peninsula. The project involves digging a 44.9 nautical mile (83 km) long deepwater channel linking the shallow water of the Palk Strait with the Gulf of Mannar. Conceived as early as 1860 by Alfred Dundas Taylor, it recently received approval of the Indian government. Government of India plans to break limestone shells &shores to the infinity called Ram's Bridge or Ram sethu as part of implementation of this project. A few organizations are opposing damage to Ramasethu on religious,environmental and economical grounds.
