It's nearly Easter. Bunnies, eggs, chocolate, lamb. Apparently. For me it means a well needed break. Well, I could do with the chocolate eggs as well. Or chocolate bunnies. Chocolate lambs are fine too. Then again, give me a chocolate santa and I will be okay... 

For some reason the Easter break is a period to have home quizzes here in Norway and a lot of shops sell quiz-books filled with hard and not so hard questions. Which got me thinking (yes, I do that on occasion, don't make too much out of it please). And that thinking got me to two questions I want to pose to you. 

Question 1: Who was emperor of India between 1893 and 1897?
Question 2: Whatever happened to heavens 1 through 6? 

Do you think you know the answers? Write them on a postcard and send them write it in the comments. The winner gets of course eternal glory and a virtual klem by Brom!

    Bwahaha;;;; I just got back from Edinburgh an hour ago and in unpacking everything, including the groceries, the little choco eggs I treated myself to appear to have gone astray.............. can't find them anywhere and am pretty sure they didn't get left behind. Sigh... Universe is sayinng 'naughty YAM'...

    Q1 - random dates! That was slap bang at the height of the British Raj and Queen Vicky was considered the Empress of India. Not by the Indians, of course.
    Q2 - there are 7 hells and 7 heavens.
    The 7 Vyarthis
    Satya-loka:Satya-loka is also known as the Brahma loka and this loka is the topmost loka in the material universe. This is the abode of truth where atmans are released from the need of rebirth.
    Tapa-loka: This is the abode of tapas or of other Gods and Goddesses.
    Jana-loka: This is the house of the sons of Lord Brahma.
    Mahar-loka: This is the dwelling of great sages and laissez-faire beings like Markendeya and other rishis.
    Svar-loka: This expanse is between the sun and the polar star. This is the heaven of Lord Indra. Indra, other Gods, Rishis, Gandharvas and Apsaras live here. This place is full of heavenly ecstasy where all the 330 million Hindu Gods (Devatas) live in along with the king of Gods, Indra.
    Bhuvar-loka or Pitri Loka: This is the place of the Sun, planets, stars and the space between earth and the Sun. It is an actual region, the atmosphere, the place of soul and essence.
    Bhur-loka:This is the place where the Earth dwells. According to the Vishnu Purana the earth is simply one of thousands of billions of occupied worlds like itself located in the Universe.

    The 7 Patalas
    Atala-loka: This loka is ruled by Bala – son of Maya – who enjoys supernatural powers. By one yawn, Bala created three types of women – Svairinis – the self willed women who marry men from their own group; Kaminis – lustfull women who marry men from any group; and finally Pumscalis – those women who gave themselves fully and continue changing their partner.
    Vitala-loka: This Loka is ruled by the God Hara-Bhava – an incarnation of Lord Shiva. The residents of this dominion are decorated with gold from this region.
    Sutala-loka: Sutala is the kingdom of the virtuous demon king Mahabali.
    Talatala-loka: This loka is the kingdom of the demon-architect Maya, who is well-versed in necromancy.
    Mahatala-loka: Mahātala is the abode of many-hooded Nagas – the sons of Kadru – lead by Krodhavasha band of Kuhaka, Taksshaka, Kaliya and Sushena.
    Rasatala-loka: This is the home of the Danavas and Daityas, who are the everlasting foes of Devatas.
    Patala-loka: The lowest territory of the materialistic universe is called Patala or Nagaloka. Vasuki is the rular of this Naga region. Here live quite a lot of Nagas whose hoods are decorated with a jewel and thus enlighten this realm with the lights reflected from the jewels.

    So when folk talk about being in 7th heaven, they are firmly planted on Earth!!!
    (well, you DID ask!) YAM xx
