Maidan Konstytutsii (Kharkiv Metro)

The Maidan Konstytutsii is a station on Kharkiv Metro's Kholodnohirsko–Zavodska Line. The station was opened on August 23, 1975, it is located in the historical part of Kharkiv, beneath the Maidan Konstytutsii known as Soviet Square. The Maidan Konstytutsii station forms a complex with the adjacent station, Istorychnyi Muzei, on the Saltivska Line. Before the Istorychniy Muzei station's completion in 1984, a relief marble architectural item adorned with the hammer and sickle was located on the station. Inside the passenger transfer tunnel is the Kharkiv Metro's only public restroom, unlike the western European metro systems. Early during the planning stage, the station was to be called Tsentr Centre, to be built in the vicinity of the Tsentralny Restaurant, but because of the hydro-geological circumstances in the area affecting the construction of neighbouring stations, the station was moved to the northern end of the Constitution Square. Inside the cashier hall columns hold up the ceiling, they are made of marble blocks, the lower half being made of dark tones moving on into whiter tones.

The station vestibule is lightened with luminescent lamps, put inside niches within the ceiling. The vestibule's area is 500 square meters, which due to the high passenger traffic, caused by the station being a transfer to another station; the Maidan Konstytutsii station is deep underground and is a pylon three-vaulted structure, separated by arcades of the tracks. It was designed by V. A. Krasnolobov, N. P. Nikulin, P. G. Chechelnitskiy. A. Bochikashvili, Y. E. Kryk and V. A. Tovalyuk. G. Sova; the partitions the tracks have been held with are made of rose marble from Uzbekistan, the arcades themselves have been finished with blank marble. The marble harmonizes with the floor, paved with red and black blocks of polished granite; until the end of 1985, the station hall was lighted with lights placed inside original geometrical forms. In the next year, the geometrical lamp forms were replaced by different metal forms. In connection with the 350th anniversary of Kharkiv in 2003, the stations, including Ploshcha Konstytutsii, were lightened with brighter lamps.

Until 20 November 2015 the station was named Radianska. On that day the Kharkiv city council renamed the station to comply with decommunization laws. Maidan Konstytutsii on Gortransport Kharkiv site

Shishupala Vadha

The Shishupala Vadha is a work of classical Sanskrit poetry composed by Māgha in the 7th or 8th century. It is an epic poem in 20 sargas of about 1800 ornate stanzas, is considered one of the six Sanskrit mahakavyas, or "great epics", it is known as the Māgha-kāvya after its author. Like other kavyas, it is admired more for its exquisite descriptions and lyrical quality than for any dramatic development of plot, its 19th canto is noted for verbal gymnastics and wordplay. As with most Sanskrit kāvya, the plot is drawn in this case the Mahabharata. In the original story, king of the Chedis in central India, after insulting Lord Krishna several times in an assembly enrages him and has his head struck off; the 10th-century literary critic Kuntaka observes that Magha arranges the story such that the sole purpose of Vishnu's Avatarhood as Krishna is the slaying of the evil Shishupala. Magha invents a conflict in Krishna's mind, between his duty to destroy Shishupala, to attend Yudhishthira's ceremony to which he has been invited.

The following description of the plot of the Shishupala Vadha is drawn from A. K. Warder; the evil Shishupala has clashed with Krishna many times, such as when the latter eloped with Rukmini, betrothed to him, defeated the combined armies of Shishupala and Rukmini's brother Rukmi. When the story begins, Sage Narada reminds Krishna that while he had killed Hiranyakashipu, the demon has been reborn as Shishupala and desires to conquer the world, must be destroyed again. Meanwhile, Yudhiṣṭhira and his brothers, having conquered the four directions and killed Jarasandha, wish to perform the Rajasuya yajña and Krishna has been invited. Unsure what to do, Krishna takes the counsel of Uddhava. While Balarama suggests attacking declaring war on Shishupala Uddhava points out that this would involve many kings and disrupt Yudhishthira's ceremony. Instead, he suggests ensuring. Pleased with this plan, Krishna sets out with his army to Indraprastha where the ceremony will be held. On the way, he sees Mount Raivataka, decides to camp there, all seasons manifest themselves for his pleasure.

His followers' enjoyment and water sports are described, as are nightfall, drinking and a general festival of love and dawn. These cantos, containing exquisite and detailed descriptions that are unrelated to the action, are the most popular with Sanskrit critics; the army resumes its march in Canto XII, Krishna enters the city. The ceremony takes place, at the end, at Bhishma's advice, the highest honour is bestowed on Krishna. Shishupala is enraged at this, makes a long speech on Krishna's bad qualities, he leaves the assembly. In Canto XVI, he sends a messenger to Krishna. Krishna declares war, the armies fight, with the various complex formations of the armies being matched by the complex forms Māgha adopts for his verses in Canto XIX. Krishna enters the fight, after a long battle, strikes off Shishupala's head with Sudarshana Chakra, his discus. Despite what may appear to be little subject matter, the cantos of this work are in fact longer than those of other epics; the poet seems to have been inspired by the Kirātārjunīya of Bharavi, intended to emulate and surpass it.

Like the Kirātārjunīya, the poem displays rhetorical and metrical skill more than the growth of the plot and is noted for its intricate wordplay, textual complexity and verbal ingenuity. It has a rich vocabulary, so much so that the claim has been made that it contains every word in the Sanskrit language; the narrative wanders from the main action to dwell on elegant descriptions, with half the cantos having little to do with the proper story e.g. while describing the march of an army, cantos 9 to 11 take a detour to describe nature and sunset, the seasons, courtesans preparing to receive men, the bathing of nymphs, so on. Because of these descriptions, the Śiśupālavadha is an important source on the history of Indian ornaments and costumes, including its different terms for dress as paridhāna, aṃśuka, vasana and ambara. Magha is noted for technique of developing the theme, "stirring intense and conflicting emotions relieved by lighter situations"; the work is in the vīra rasa. In the 20th stanza of the fourth canto, Māgha describes the simultaneous setting of the sun and the rising of the moon on either side of the Meru mountain as like a mighty elephant with two bells dangling on either side of his body.

This striking imagery has earned Māgha the sobriquet of Ghaṇṭāmāgha, "Bell-Māgha". His similes are highly original, many verses from the work are of independent interest, are quoted for their poetic or moral nature. Whereas Bhāravi glorifies Shiva, Māgha glorifies Krishna. A popular Sanskrit verse about Māgha (and hence about this poem, as it his only known work and the
