Tagetes

Tagetes is a genus of annual or perennial herbaceous plants in the sunflower family. It was described as a genus by Carl Linnaeus in 1753; the genus is native of south of Mexico. One species, T. minuta, is considered a noxious invasive plant in some areas. Tagetes species vary in size from 0.1 to 2.2 m tall. Most species have pinnate green leaves. Blooms occur in golden, orange and white colors with maroon highlights. Floral heads are to 4–6 cm diameter with both ray florets and disc florets. In horticulture, they tend to be planted as annuals, although the perennial species are gaining popularity, they have fibrous roots. Depending on the species, Tagetes species grow well in any sort of soil. Most horticultural selections grow best in soil with good drainage though some cultivars are known to have good tolerance to drought; the name Tagetes is from the name of the Etruscan Tages, born from the plowing of the earth. It refers to the ease with which plants of this genus come out each year either by the seeds produced in the previous year, or by the stems which regrow from the stump in place.

The common name in English, marigold, is derived from Mary's gold, a name first applied to a similar plant native to Europe, Calendula officinalis. The most cultivated varieties of Tagetes are known variously as African marigolds, or French marigolds; the so-called signet marigolds are hybrids derived from Tagetes tenuifolia. Depending on the species, marigold foliage has a musky, pungent scent, though some varieties have been bred to be scentless, it is said to deter some common insect pests, as well as nematodes. Tagetes species are hence used in companion planting for tomato, chili pepper and potato. Due to antibacterial thiophenes exuded by the roots, Tagetes should not be planted near any legume crop; some of the perennial species are rodent - and javalina or peccary-resistant. T. Minuta from South America, has been used as a source of essential oil for the perfume and industry known as tagette or "marigold oil", as a flavourant in the food and tobacco industries, it is cultivated in South Africa, where the species is a useful pioneer plant in the reclamation of disturbed land.

The florets of Tagetes erecta are rich in the orange-yellow carotenoid lutein and are used as a food colour in the European Union for foods such as pasta, vegetable oil, mayonnaise, salad dressing, baked goods, dairy products, ice cream, citrus juice and mustard. In the United States, the powders and extracts are only approved as colorants in poultry feed. Marigolds are recorded as a food plant for some Lepidoptera caterpillars including the dot moth, a nectar source for other butterflies, they are part of butterfly gardening plantings. In the wild, many species are pollinated by beetles; the species Tagetes lucida, known as pericón, is used to prepare a sweetish, anise-flavored medicinal tea in Mexico. It is used as a culinary herb in many warm climates, as a substitute for tarragon, offered in the nursery as "Texas tarragon" or "Mexican mint marigold". Tagetes minuta, native to southern South America, is a tall, upright marigold plant with small flowers used as a culinary herb in Peru and parts of Chile and Bolivia, where it is called by the Incan term huacatay.

The paste is used to make the popular potato dish called ocopa. Having both "green" and "yellow/orange" notes, the taste and odor of fresh T. minuta is like a mixture of sweet basil, tarragon and citrus. It is used as a medicinal tea in some areas; the marigold was regarded as the flower of the dead in pre-Hispanic Mexico, parallel to the lily in Europe, is still used in the Day of the Dead celebrations. It is always sold in the markets for daily rituals; the marigold is widely cultivated in India and Thailand the species T. erecta, T. patula, T. tenuifolia.

Timings: 6:00 AM to 12:00 Noon & 4:00 PM to 8:00 PM The primary deity worshiped is Shiva. Other deities are Parvati, Ganesha Hanuman, Bhairo Maha Shivratri Fair Chaiti Mela Shrawan Mela Shree Moteshwar Mahadev is in the Ujjanak area of Kashipur, around 3 km from the Kashipur bus station. Kashipur is well connected by road with all major cities of North India and is linked to Delhi, Moradabad and Varanasi by train; the nearest airport is at Pantnagar, about 72 km from Kashipur. Apart from Pantnagar, it is 223 km from the Jolly Grant Airport Dehradun major Airport of the State of Uttarakhand. Kashipur was known as Govishan or Govisana during the time of Harsha, when Xuanzang visited this region.

The ruins of the large settlement of those days are still near the city. Kashipur is named after Kashinath Adhikari, the founder of the township and governor of the pargana, one of the officers of the Chand Kings of Kumaon in the 16th-17th century. Poet Gumani wrote a poem on this town. Girital and Drona sagar are well-known are associated with the story of the Pandavas; the Chaiti mela is the best known fair of Kashipur. Today Kashipur is an important industrial township. In autumn one can see the snowclad peaks of its surroundings. According to the Shiv Puran Bhima Shankar Jyotirlingam is in Kamroop. After seeing historic and spiritual books, it is called the place of Bheem Shankar Jyotirlingam; the reason for this is after looking to many of the spiritual books we come to know that this place was known as Kamroop. In Mahabharata time this place was known as Dakini; this was the reason Adi Shankaracharaya has illustrated the place by saying "Dakiniyam Bhimashankaram". Its existence is described by Kalidas in his "Raghuvansh".

Hence we have to believe. The reason for the name Dakini is the forests which has gone from Saharanpur to Nepal consisted a Hidimba named devil which took birth in Dakini Yoni and got married with the victorious PandavaBhushan BheemSen, she was a Dakini but as she lived in a devil posture she was called a Devil. The lingam of this temple is large and touching the whole ling with two human hands is impossible; this kind of lingam is not present in any other part of the country. It is believed till now it has reached second floor. After seeing many facts we can say this temple was built around 302 AD, it includes a Kund known as Shiv Ganga Kund. On the West is a temple of Maa Jagdamba Bhagwati Balsundari, every year in the month of Chaitra a huge fair is organized here. A place known as Kila describes the historic scenes of this temple; this is the kila where Guru Dronacharya gave teaching to Pandava. Guru dronacharya motivated Bheemsen to reconstruct this temple, known as Bheem Shankar. Shravan Kumar rested here.

West to this kila is Dronasagar, built by pandavas for their guru Dronacharya. The lingam is too fat so people here named it "Moteshwar Mahadev". Shree Moteshwar Mahadev is regarded as one of the 12 Jyotirlinga of Lord Shiva. Information about this temple is referred in MahabharatShiv Manokamna Kund is adjacent to the temple. There is a Bhimashankar Temple near Pune in Maharashtra, referred to as Daakini country and considered as one of the Jyotirlinga. Bhimshankar temple near Guwahati, Assam is the jyotirlinga according to Sivapuran. According to "Linga Puran", Bhimshankar Temple at Bhimpur near Gunupur of Rayagada District in South Orissa is debated as one of the Jyotirling, at the western part of the holy Mahendragiri mountains and at the river; the river flowing beside the Moteshwar Maha Dev Temple of Kashipur is locally known as Bahela and not Kosi, about 09 km eastward to this place near village Patti Sultanpur on the NH 74 i.e. the Baz pur Road heading towards Rudrapur in the east.

Franz Antel

Franz Antel was a veteran Austrian filmmaker. Born in Vienna, Antel worked as a film producer in the interwar years. After World War II, he began directing films on a large scale. In the late 1940s, 1950s and 1960s these were comedies and K.u.k. films all of which, for Austrian and German TV stations alike, have been a staple of weekend afternoon programming since. In between there is quite a sober film about the Oberst Redl affair that shook the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy on the eve of World War I. Antel himself commented on this period, "I always wanted to provide good entertainment for the people at the cinema. After the screening, people should say: Well now, I am in a good mood, I will go out and have a glass of wine." From the late 1960s, encouraged by the new opportunities in the film industry brought about by the sexual revolution, Antel switched his main interest to soft porn and ribaldry. It was in particular his series of Frau Wirtin films, directed under the pseudonym François Legrand, with which he tried to win international recognition.

Titles included The Sweet Sins of Sexy Susan, Sexy Susan Sins Again, Willing & Sexy and Don't Tell Daddy. Antel would recount an anecdote about himself describing how, in order to live up to his reputation as a womanizer, he used to carry a pair of high heels in his luggage which he would place in the corridor in front of his hotel room – when he was travelling alone. Among the best known actors Antel had worked with from the 1940s to the 1970s were Hans Moser, Paul Hörbiger, Oskar Werner, Curd Jürgens, Tony Curtis, Herbert Fux, Heinrich Schweiger, Arthur Kennedy, Carroll Baker, Edwige Fenech, George Hilton, Marisa Berenson, Britt Ekland, Andréa Ferréol. 1981 was a turning point in Antel's career when he adapted for the big screen a stage play by Ulrich Becher and Peter Preses. Set from the days of the Anschluss of 1938 until after the end of the war, Der Bockerer is about a Viennese butcher named Karl Bockerer whose common sense rather than intellect tells him to oppose the Nazis and who dares to show resistance just because he is never aware of the possible fateful consequences of his actions.

While Bockerer and his wife survive the war unscathed, their son joins the SA but, after some internal intrigue, is sent to the front and killed. The film was entered into the 12th Moscow International Film Festival; the film's strong anti-fascist message, the moving dialogue, performances by the crème de la crème of Austrian actors and actresses made Der Bockerer an unusually successful film and gave new impetus to Antel's career. He made three sequels, which follow the lives of the Bockerers well into the 1960s, each depicting a crucial historical event in Austria or one of its neighbouring countries: Der Bockerer II is about the ten-year occupation of Austria by the allied powers.
