Sacred Hindu Tattoos – Incredible Designs Packed With Color and Meaning The Hindu faith, which originated in India, is one of the oldest known religions in the world with some historians believing that people began practicing Hinduism around 500BC. Today it continues to be a major religion and is classed as the 3rd largest worldwide. Hindu’s believe in many gods, goddesses, and deities and over time this has given rise to incredible imagery. Bright colorful renderings of these multiple gods appear in paintings, sculptures and adorn religious text. For Hindu’s who love body art (and sometimes even those who don’t practice the faith) these gods and deities make exceptional tattoo subjects rich with meaning.
The architectural building, I have chosen to focus on for this assignment is the Lotus Temple, which is located in New Delhi, India. It was designed by an Iranian architect named Fariborz Sahba in 1986. The Lotus Temple is also called the Bahai House of Worship. I decided to focus on this architectural building because I have visited this Temple a few times, and I personally find it very beautiful. One of the things I find very beautiful about the Lotus Temple is that unlike many other temples where people visit to worship an idol, Lotus Temple is a temple where people visit to wish for something they really desire or even to ask for forgiveness.
Veil piercing is one of the most litigated issue in the area of company law. In the United Kingdom, the views of the courts in veil piercing cases are inconsistent towards both the desire for equitable outcome and the classification of such cases.

As humans we are confronted with situations that test our strength of morality and character. There is always a grey area posing difficulty in resolving the dilemma between right and wrong. According to John Rowan, states a moral theory is a device to justify the action or rule ethically justified. It gives clarity of vision in deciding an action whether right, wrong or permissible.

Munir, Lily. Islam and Human Rights. First of all, it should be said that "the question whether or not Islam is compatible with international human rights has been a long debate" (Munir 1). The thing is that traditionally Islam is taken by people, who do not know its main ideas, as a very strict and sometimes even cruel religion, that controls and limits the life of people who adhere to it. Munir in her work Islam and human rights also underlines the fact that Islamic Law has always been taken negatively in the West, because of a great number of various prejudices connected with it (1).
Singapore’s Defence One hard truth is that the Asia-Pacific region is still a potentially dangerous region region. According to the author, the Asia-Pacific region has had many events that could potentially cause huge conflicts. He referred to the standoff between China and Japan over the Diaoyu or Senkaku islands, North Korea 's nuclear programme and the South China Sea territorial spats. Singapore’s relationship with neighbouring countries such as Indonesia and Malaysia are also filled with rivalry and tension. This was seen in 1991, where Indonesia and Malaysia conducted a joint military exercise codenamed Malindo Darsasa 3AB on 9th August which was Singapore’s National Day.
I have always wondered how theses actions of the army in the neglected north-eastern states of the nation, particularly in Manipur, have contradicted the expectations one has from a democracy. This is the prime concern of this essay. Taking up the example of Irom Chanu Sharmila - The Iron Lady of Manipur, who represents the protest against AFSPA, we will see how the democracy we claim to be living within is not really a democracy. We need to develop this understanding because what is going on in Manipur is fair neither to the citizens nor to this young lady who gave up her lifestyle being a young adult to represent the people of her state against the injustice that they 're facing. In this essay, we will uncover how Irom Sharmila 's human rights are being violated by her own government, by the people she elects, by this so-called democratic nation.
In this research paper, I have tried to highlight the historical perspective of Dalit Literature with minute details. As we know that untouchability is one of the greatest evils of Indian society since the inception of the civilization. In the Manu Smriti, the Hindu's law book of social code, one can observe the tragic picture who were deprived of many rights especially their banning of entry into the temples or reading the Hindu scriptures as the traditional Indian society was brahmanical. That is why the great social reformers of India like Mahatma Gandhi, B. R. Ambedkar, Tagore and Swami Dayanand etc. raised their voice of protest against this age-old injustice and discrimination.
