From the Editor’s Desk: 1. Eagles fly alone at a high altitude and do not mix with sparrows or other smaller birds like geese. Birds of a feather flock together. No other bird goes to the height of the eagle. Eagles fly alone. Never in a flock. Even when Moses (Old Testament) went to commune with God on the mountain, he left the crowd at the foothills. Stay away from sparrows and ravens. Eagles fly alone. 2. Eagles have strong vision, which focuses up to 5 kilometers from the air. When an eagle sites prey- even a rodent from this distance, he narrows his focus on it and sets out to get it. No matter the obstacle, the eagle will not move his focus from the prey until he grabs it. Have a vision and remain focused no matter what the obstacle and you will succeed. R.K. Nagar 3. Eagles do not eat dead things. He feeds on fresh prey. Vultures eat dead animals but not Editor, AsiAmerica Digest eagles. Steer clear of outdated and old information. Do your research well, always. 4. The Eagle is the only bird that loves the storm. When clouds gather, the eagles get excited. The eagle uses the wings of the storm to rise and is pushed up higher. Once it finds the wing of the storm, the eagle stops flapping and uses the pressure of the raging storm to soar the clouds and glide. This gives the eagle an opportunity to rest its wings. In the meantime all the other birds hide in the leaves and branches of the trees. We can use the storms of our lives (obstacles, trouble, etc) to rise to greater heights. Achievers relish challenges and use them profitably. 5. The Eagle tests before it trusts. When a female eagle meets a male and they want to mate, she flies down to earth with the male purusing her and she picks a twig. She flies back into the air with the male pursuing her. Once she has reached a height high enough for her, she lets the twig fall to the ground and watches it as it falls. The male chases after the twig. The faster it falls, the faster he chases until he reaches it and has to catch it before it falls to the ground, then bring it back to the female eagle. The female eagle grabs the twig and flies to a much higher altitude pursued by the male, until she perceives it high enough, and then drops the twig for the male to chase. This goes on for hours, with the height increasing until the female eagle is assured that the male eagle has mastered the art of picking the twig which shows commitment, then and only then, will she allow him to mate with her! Whether in private life or in business, one should test commitment of people intended for partnership. 6. Eagles prepare for training. When about to lay eggs, the female and male eagle identify a place very high on a cliff where no predators can reach; the male flies to earth and picks thorns and lays them on the crevice of the cliff, then flies to earth again to collect twigs which he lays in the intended nest. He flies back to earth picks thorns and lays them on top of the twigs. He flies back to earth and picks soft grass to cover the thorns, and then flies back to pick rugs to put on the grass. When this first layering is complete, the male eagle runs back to earth and picks more thorns, lays them on the nest; runs back to get grass and rugs and lays them on top of the thorns, then plucks his feathers to complete the nest. The thorns on the outside of the nest protect it from possible intruders. Both male and female eagles participate in raising the eagle family. She lays the eggs and protects them; he builds the nest and hunts. The people who love us do not let us languish in sloth but push us hard to grow and prosper. Even in their seemingly bad actions they have good intentions for us. 7. When the Eagle grows old, his feathers become weak and cannot take him as fast as he should. When he feels weak and about to die, he retires to a place far away in the rocks. While there, he plucks out every feather on his body until he is completely bare. He stays in this hiding place until he has grown new feathers, then he can come out. We occasionally need to shed off old habits & items that burden us add no value to our lives. -- Author unknown AsiAmerica Digest March 2010

If we were to be involved in an accident or were taken ill, the people attending us would have our mobile phone but wouldn’t know who to call. Yes, there are hundreds of numbers stored but which one is the contact person in case of an emergency? Hence this “ICE” (In Case of Emergency) Campaign The concept of “ICE” is catching on quickly. It is a method of contact during emergency situations. As cell phones are carried by the majority of the population, all you need to do is store the number of a contact person or persons who should be contacted during emergency under the name “ICE” ( In Case Of Emergency). The idea was thought up by a paramedic who found that when he went to the scenes of accidents, there were always mobile phones with patients, but they didn’t know which number to call. He therefore thought that it would be a good idea if there was a nationally recognized name for this purpose. In an emergency situation, Emergency Service personnel and hospital Staff would be able to quickly contact the right person by simply dialing the number you have stored as “ICE.” For more than one contact name simply enter ICE1, ICE2 and ICE3 etc. A great idea that will make a difference! Let’s spread the concept of ICE by storing an ICE number in our Mobile phones today! Google 411....... ( Check this our! ) Just leave it up to Google to come up with something like this! Here’s a number worth putting in your cell phone, or your home phone speed dial: 1-800goog411 or 1-800-466-4411. This is an awesome service from Google, and it’s free -- great when you are on the road. Don’t waste your money on information calls and don’t waste your time manually dialing the number. How great is that? It is nationwide, Canada & US, and it is absolutely free! Works on cell and landline phones, all you have to remember is 1-800-466-4411. Give it a try. Page 48

AsiAmerica Digest March 2010


* The sunrise and sunset times are middle of the disk rising which is used for astrological purposes. * The Tithi, Nakshatra, Yoga, and Karana times are end times. Chandra and Surya Rasi change time are Pravesha time (begining). * When the end time or start time denotes time greater than 24 hours then its next day after midnight but before nextday sunrise in that case subtract 24 from the time and use next day. About Tithi, Nakshatra, Yoga, and Karana Timings: Indian dates are not fixed for 24 hours. They can be shorter and longer in the length. The day is from one sunrise to another sunrise. So this means usually any day will have two tithis, two nakshatras, two yogas, and three karanas. This is because panchangam denotes when they will end. Hence these timings are end timings. Next one starts right after current Tithi, Nakshatra, Yoga and Karana ends. For example T:Saptami 12:10:22 means Saptami ends at 12:10:22 and asthami starts right after that time. Hence on that day from sunrise to 12:10:22 it’s saptami then it’s asthami. Like wise for nakshatra, yoga and karana. Sometimes one tithi can be shorter. For example sunrise is at 6:10 AM and tithi saptami can end at 6:48:23 AM and right away asthami will start but it can very well end before next day sunrise which will be 6:11 AM, and asthami end timings 29:10:23 AM means 24+5:10 5:10:23 AM next day. In this case saptami till 6:48:34 AM, astami till 29:10:23 (5:10:23 AM of next day -- remember indian day is from sunrise to sunrise and hence we don’t reset clock at midnight), and from 29:10:23 (5:10:23AM) navami till sunrise (6:11 AM of next day), and hence three tithis. Same applies for nakshatra, and yogas too. Karana is a half tithi means each tithi will have two karana. In normal cases when every day when we have two tithis those days we’ll have three karanas (2 implicit mentioned and one explicit means after that time till sunrise next karana). As explained before About Sun and Moon Timings: They are pravesha timings means it’s the time when sun and moon will change their rashis. For example: SN: Mithuna 22:10. It means Sun will enter mithuna rashi at (22:10) 10:10 PM. Before that sun will be in vrishabha rashi. Like wise for the moon MN: Simha 00:10. Moon will enter simha rashi at 00:10 AM before that moon will be in karkata rashi. About Lagna and Chogadia Timings: These times indicates pravesha timings means the time which lagna or chogadia will start. pushkara timings means a very good timings with in that lagna. Good for 1 ghatika. 24 minutes. There are two luni-solar calendars are used in India. Poornimanth months and Amavasyant months. Poornimant months months starts with krishna paksha and end with shukla paksha where as in amavasyant month starts with shukla paksha and ends with krishna paksha. There are equal amount of treatise exists for both system. Amavasyant is easy for calculation of panchanga, where as poornimanth becomes more complicated during adhika month and kshaya masa, (if you look at how they are dividing the months when adhika month comes, you could endup scratching your head). Amavasyant is very easy. Poornimant is mostly used in hindi speaking belt. Non-hindu speaking belt like gujarathi, marathi, south indians uses amavasyant month system. However, gujarati’s new year starts with kartik shukla paksha prathama where as hindi speaking people, and south indian’s new year start with chaitra sukla paksha prathama. In Poornimant Krishna paksha comes first, and then shukla paksha. so when Amavasyant months have posh krishna paksha Poornimant will have magha krishna paksha and then will be magha shukla paksha (common for both), after that phalguna krishna paksha will come for Poornimanth months whereas amantha month call it as a magha krishna paksha. *** Calendar & Information from www.mypanchang.com*** AsiAmerica Digest March 2010
