“Utruku Al-Habasha wa tarakukum”

An Ethiopian Journal

A leap of faith

Early Muslims looked beseechingly to Ethiopia and sought refuge in its territory from their persecutors, the polytheist Arabians. But the Christian kingdom, besieged for 15 centuries by Islamic states that formed a formidable ring around it, refused to succumb to the new religion. 

Gamal Nkrumah explores the often contentious connection between Ethiopia and Islam

Since time immemorial Ethiopia has retained her supercilious air. Throughout the centuries, the rugged Nile Basin country, bound to Islam from the religion’s inception, has attracted scant attention compared to Egypt. Ethiopia’s seclusion, however, did nothing to dispel its mystique. Ethiopia’s ambiguous identity fascinated those outsiders who cared to take a closer look. Black, but not black enough. Christian, but only partially so. At once both primitive and civilized.

Numerous Arab and Muslim chroniclers have lavished praise on the only land beyond Arabia’s borders that Prophet Mohamed turned to in his hour of…

Flags: Indus Valley-Egypt similarity

Tamil and Vedas

Picture shows Egyptian standards from Narmer palette

( Tamil version of this article is already posted in the blogs: swami )

Carrying flags and standards in a king’s procession or God’s (statue) procession is practised even today in India. In Tamil Nadu, the emblems of Shiva or Vishnu are taken in the procession during the annual temple festivals. We are fortunate to have one seal or tablet showing a procession that went through an Indus Valley city thousands of years ago. Egypt has provided us still an older picture of a procession.

Narmer (Nara Meru also known as Menes/Manu) ruled Egypt in the Pre Dynastic period, 5000 years before our time. His palette shows four people carrying standards. The first two carry long poles with bird figures on the top. Next person carried a pole with the wolf God (Wepwawet) and the last one carried a bundle or a cloth…

Serpent Queen:Indus Valley to Sabarimalai

Tamil and Vedas


Picture shows Indus Snake seal

The most famous snake queen figure came from the Minoan Civilization in the island of Crete. British archaeologist Arthur Evans excavated at the palace of Knossos in Crete and revealed to the world the fascinating details of a new civilization that existed between 2700 BC and 1500 BC coinciding with the Indus Valley Civilization. The famous serpent queen figure is of a priestess holding two snakes in her two hands. The same motif is found throughout in India from Vedic times to modern day. We have a faience figure in Indus Valley with two snakes.


Minoan Goddess 1600 BC

Rig Veda, the oldest religious book in the world, refers to a Sarpa Ranji (serpent queen). Atharva Veda also mentioned two snakes called Aligi and Viligi. Modern research by scholars showed that these were actually the names of two Assyrian Kings who lived in 3000 BC…

The Sugarcane Mystery: Indus valley and the Ikshvaku Dynasty

Tamil and Vedas

Ikshvaku was the founder of the Solar Dynasty. Lord Sri Rama, Bhageeratha and other great kings of the solar dynasty are well known to the Hindus. What is interesting is that we get more and more evidence to link him with the Indus Valley Civilisation, first Jain Thirthankara, Rishabadeva, the Rik Veda and a Tamil king called Adhiyamaan.

Ikshvaku was mentioned in Rik Veda. The meaning of his name is SUGARCANE. The plant sugarcane (Saccharum officinarum) is mentioned in the Atharva Veda. Ayurvedic authors Charaka and Susruta mentioned the sugarcane in many places. The word ‘sugar’ and the words for sugar in other European languages came from the Sanskrit word ‘Sharkara’. Columbus introduced the sugarcane to the Americas in 1439. Arabs took it from India to other parts of Asia around 8th century AD.

Encyclopaedias say that the people of New Guinea were the first to cultivate sugarcane around…

When Keeping It Real Goes Wrong, and Lord Jesus Do They* Think I’m Sweet Brown?

Do.Dream.Aisha

Le sigh. So I decided to write a tad more regularly as of last summer. All sorts of ideas get cooked up in this lil head, and ideas tend to generate even more in my summer freedom when I’m not bogged down with 50-11 rules from case books. I’ll occasionally submit one of my pieces to blogs that I read often in the off chance they’ll get bored and decide to pick it up. Because, why not? People tell me I can write and shit, so why not share it with the world.

I’ve submitted to both clutch, jezebel, and xo jane in the past. I think essence, too. None of my writings had been picked up. No matter. I don’t write for a living. I mostly enjoy the process of just being able to pour out whatever is on my mind, because I literally will not be able to…
