Dekhona -- Indian Video Website

Dekhona -- Indian Video Website
 
Following up from a newsletter from Mouthshut, I visited Dekhona, which introduces itself as a new, novel, young, cool, temperamental video website from India. The logon screen, video display screens all seems to be following the style of YouTube. Currently they seem to be having some contest where you upload your video and you can stand to win a lot of iPODs too.
 
But my actual concern was how much Dekhona is going to enforce of copyright concerns. I like YouTube way of taking greatest amount of care on Intellectual property. I searched Dekhona up and down, making use of Google Toolbar Site search but I could not find convincing information how it is enforcing copyright restrictions, responding to copyright infringment calls. YouTube has a dedicated DMCA Cell and an email address copyright (at) youtube.com where you can take help from regarding copyright.
 
For those video publishers from India, you can try Dekhona and try publishing your videos and win iPods but take care of your intellectual property, since we have outlined some missing information in the previous paragraph.

dekhona.com has a comprehensive DMCA policy.

It is spelt out in their Terms of Use. You can also read their extremely well written, no nonsense Ethics Guidelines.

I am stunned to find out that you did not find any copyright protection measures on dekhona.com

Maybe you should read:

http://www.dekhona.com/help/communityethics.php
I quote from the link:
"...Upload videos that don't belong to you

Basically, we're very tolerant. But when it comes to copyright violation, you can bet your last cent that we won't tolerate plagiarism. Phew! All videos that violate copyright laws will be deleted even before you blink. Uff! Remember, it hurts to plagiarize."

their Terms of Use and DMCS is here

Ayyappa (48-day) Observation -- Rules and Restrictions

Ayyappa (48-day) Observation -- Rules and RestrictionsOne of my friend was suggesting me this -- "Why can not you put up some kind of blog post or an article summarizing the 48 day observation rules to be observed. Well. I had a small pocketbook and a couple of PDFs circulating in the emails.Most of the rules normally are hearsay from our elders to us. As my friend suggested, today since I was relatively free, just thought I would update it as bullet points, so that future Ayyappa Swamis  can immensely benefit from the same.While my pocket books are in Tamil, I am attempting to compile the same in English. Should you find discrepancies, share your thoughts and observations as comments.Most of the rules and observationary regulations are purely for our own control and development -- to streamline our day-to-day chores.All round the work time, keep your mind only focused on the Lord. Even the work you do is being instrumented by the Lord. Dedicate the same to the Lord.  Perhaps, Bh…

"Arindhum Ariyamalum" Sloka

"Arindhum Ariyamalum" Sloka

There was one Swami (Karthik) who had expressed a bit of dejection since on a particular day, he could not wake up early and he was feeling a bit down as expressed over here. As far as my little information goes, I think, our guruswami's have taken these issues into consideration and the Arindhum Ariyamalum sloka that we recite accomodates for all these mistakes that are committed with and without our knowledge.

I searched a while to give this sloka lyric to Swami but since I could'nt get it, I have typed it myself in a Word document using a Ayyappa picture and Unicode Tamil and captured as JPG using Irfanview. I would like to share the same with other readers as well.

Om. Arindhum Ariyalum Therindhum Theriyalum
Naangal Seitha Sagala Kutrangalaiyum
Poruthu, Kathu Rakshithu Arul Puriya Vendum
Sathiyamay Ponnu Pathinettam Padi mael Vaazhum
Kasi Rameswaram Adakki Aalum
Om Hari Hara Sudhan, Ananda Siddhan Ayyan, Ayyappa
Swamiyae Saranam Ayyappa.

Nemili Bala (Tripura Sundari) Temple

Nemili Bala (Tripura Sundari) TempleA calm and poised atmosphere near Vellore, the most elegant town of Tamil Nadu in the district of Arakkonam is a village called Nemili. Seated in her own house, Sri Bala Tripura Sundari has been incessantly showering her blessings on Her devotees for several years. I have also heard of Her temple from my relatives but it is a significant truth cum stipulation that unless the Lordess wishes you to see you, it is becoming almost next to impossible to go to this temple. Even to search information on the website, I think, I could not locate it till now and just reached a YahooGroups website NemiliBala. I wanted to share a few info about this temple so that other pilgrims too can get benefitted by praying to the Lordess for Her darshan and blessings.Other temples of Tripura Sundari:ThiruvanmiyurTri SoolamThirukazhunkundramThiruvathiaiSirkazhiHistory of the Temple/Sthala Varalaru:The significance of Bala Tripura Sundari unlike Her other temples enlisted a…
