Delve into the regal past

The Naqquar Khana (Trumpet House), located in the premises of the world-famous Gol Gumbaz in Vijayapura, houses a museum of ancient artefacts that depict the society, culture and architecture of the region between the 6th and 18th centuries. In 1892, British archaeologists, Henry Cousens and Jas Burgess, began collecting objects of historical significance, and stored them in a small building in Anand Mahal of Vijayapura. This paved the way for the present day museum.

When the British shifted the district headquarters from Kaladagi to Vijayapura, they decided to use the historical structures as administrative blocks. They found numerous rare artefacts and collectibles while renovating these monuments and all the items were moved to the museum. The British valued the ancient objects immensely and found the need for proper maintenance of the collection. With more additions to the collection, there was lack of space in the building. In 1912, the exhibits were shifted to the Naqquar Khana in the Gol Gumbaz complex.

In 1912, the exhibits were shifted to the Naqquar Khana in the Gol Gumbaz complex.

Diverse exhibits

The structure is built using brown sandstone. The building has a cellar, ground floor and a first floor. The British renovated it to suit the requirements of a museum. More than 1,600 registered antiquities are exhibited in eight galleries.

A mutilated sculpture of 11th century Nataraja with eight hands, a stone festoon (torana) depicting Lord Shiva dancing with his ganas, embossed sculptures playing musical instruments, hero stones from the 7th and 8th centuries, inscriptions found in the region, rare sculptures of Lord Keshava and Veerabhadra, an 8th century stone Ganesha found in Aihole, and a 14th century sculpture of Lord Parshwanatha are some of the important exhibits in the museum.

In the ground floor, one can see a 6th century vijayasthambha (pillar representing victory) built by King Mangalesha. This structure was collected from Mahakuta. The stone representation of the head of Aliya Rama Raya of Vijayanagara dynasty can also be seen here. A 12th century pillar with inscriptions attracts one’s attention. It has Sanskrit script on three directions and Kannada script at the lower part. A 13th century Kannada inscription exhibited here has reference to Vijayapura. A 17th century inscription in Arabic and Persian languages with attractive calligraphy is also on display. Other items that fascinate the visitors include stone crocodiles, stone windows with flower motifs and stone chains.

Royal heirlooms

One can get a glimpse of the rich art and culture that blossomed during the Adil Shahi rule in Vijayapura through the items on display in the first floor. The exhibits include everyday items of the royalty, their costumes, weapons and paintings of kings, queens and Sufi saints.

Like any other kings, the Adil Shahi rulers used to test the food before consuming it, by placing it in celadon ware, which can detect food poisoning. The celadon ware is on display in the museum. Some of the antiquities exhibited here indicate the administrative and trade relations between Vijayapura and China.

Coins of that era and manuscripts of the holy Quran illustrated with yellow, red and blue colours can be seen in the museum. Some of the letters of a manuscript are written in gold. Records at the museum indicate that these manuscripts were written between 13th and 18th centuries.

Many other pieces of historical importance such as prose, poetry, a sanad (administrative document) with rajamudra (royal seal), firman (official decree), Persian carpet, a lock with unique technology, Bidri ware, a 3.9 feet long sword, weighing 7 kg and said to be used by King Afzal Khan are exhibited in glass cases. Six cannons of different sizes are placed at the entrance of the museum. The cannonballs are placed inside. The museum is managed by the Archaeological Survey of India (ASI). Nearly 900 people visit the museum every day.

The museum is open from 9 am to 5 pm every day, except on Fridays. The entry is free for children. One can contact the museum on 08352-250725.

It also allows you to not waste money on non valued items, allowing to save more money for retirement and play time.

Many in American are changing to this new RV lifestyle to increase their quality of life, and to live within their means. Todays RV’s are better than most Apartments and used homes with many up to date features. Living in a RV is no longer considered “Trailer Trash”. Todays RV’s are beautiful, affordable and roomy to living in.

To learn and understand todays RVers, start searching the internet for RV Travel, or RV Fulltime living and you will find thousands of videos, blogs and articles about this subject. Todays RVers travel the nation for their careers, retirement and Nomadic lifestyle, earning income in many locations, while always having their home on wheels near by.

Single, young, married, retired, mid aged and families are all now utilizing the RV lifestyle to make their lives less expensive, and less stressful to keep up with todays high cost of homes, and rentals.

Through Determination and seeking I’m Going to get There
July 18, 2017

It really does take determination in order to get to one point to another. With all the adversity most would probably stop trying to pursue in anyway. I’m not through yet. There’s a lot to discover and although so many may not want to witness “transformation.” Oh well, they’ll have to get use to it, and if not then that’s their problem. Too determined to look back now. Not in the mood to be apart of a bunch of child play. There’s way too much to do. For some they may perceive my seeking as some form of unrealistic kind of thing but oh no.

If there’s a way then there’s a way. So no matter what others are saying and what they’ll try to do. I’m a mission to gain more than I’ve gained before. Been through too much and there’s no way that I’m going through all of the madness and not receive. But receive what? Receive the blessings that are deserved. Mankind can try to stop “breakthroughs” but can they really stop the breakthroughs? Not if they’re meant to be. Of course some will continue to try.

Some may think that I’ve moved too slow. Not knowing exactly why certain situations have occurred. “There has been progress and will continue to be progress.” The ones who have tried to slow my progress are ending up setting themselves up! By the beings not doing any good, they’re making lots of mistakes, in which they’ll later regret. It’s the determination that keeps the hopefulness alive. I’m still here for a reason and although some may not think that what’s to come is for me=Tanikka Paulk and I’m you, You, YOU. YOU!! you! So what I’ve discovered is, a lot of people aren’t really pleased with the progress of some, not sure how they’re line of thinking has brought the individuals these far.

I’m certainly on a mission to leave “a place” where I’m believing all of the work in that place is almost completed. There’s a lot of memories that can’t be denied. Although I’ve faced many battles. There’s a reason for me=Tanikka Paulk being here. If a person is truly serious about what they’re doing then they’ll continue all even when the crowd behaves foolishly. No amount of troubles should detour a person from trying to excel. Too many have already listened to the wrong people and ended up tossing out their dreams.

There are many plans and some may try to sabotage a plan in someway but when a person is headed in the right direction then no amount of antics will stop the movement from occurring. There has to be patience of course and it’s unfortunate that so many are without “patience.” Perhaps some are afraid of others getting ahead because it reminds the persons how they’ve wasted so much of their lives on areas which add no value. Too many are concerned about how others are living their lives and rarely focusing on their own lives.

Where I’m headed isn’t all concern

There is still a lot to learn

My progress will not be hindered by all

I’m still standing and for some I’ve appeared tall in Elementary

Chuckles as the memories pass by

I’m headed somewhere if they’re saying otherwise then there’s lies

Although so many have tried to stop the journey

I’m still here and there’s still that yearning

What is it that so many ask of me=Tanikka Paulk?

Some may think that I’m headed nowhere at all

Their line of thinking could be their downfall

There is progress still ya all see

Don’t count that out because I’m still on “my journey”

Oh yes too Determined to Turn Back
July 17, 2017

No matter how many try to discourage a person from living their dreams. It’s up the person whether to stop or not. Unfortunately there are a lot of people who may become envious of others trying to live their dreams. Some may not want to see others “rise up” and a lot of their thinking comes from being competitive. Not wanting others to surpass their success. There are some who will constantly try to sabotage others. They may not be happy within because if there was happiness then they wouldn’t try to rain on a person’s parade.

So many have stopped supplying ideas and stop trying to put their dream into reality because of the criticism. There will be critics everywhere a person goes. There is no way any person can avoid criticism unless they’re in hiding somewhere. As long as individuals are seeing others shine and trying to get ahead then they’ll try to stop the persons from doing so. The key is to be brave, “filled with courage”, and be very determined. Do not become discouraged when there are crowds of people who are trying to hinder what is taking place.

For some they’re reasons have to do with their own selfishness. There are motives why some choose to go after others who are only try to prosper. “Some are trying to live better lives.” Don’t have a defeated attitude. Believe in the victory and be victorious. It’s no fun having to deal with difficult individuals but there is no way that any person will completely avoid the difficult ones. Some may seek out persons in order to just try to get the individuals down.

While on a Journey

When on a journey it’s important to have a positive mindset and of course no person will always be positive but for the most part. One should “discover positive outlets” to engage in. All of the chatter should go in one ear and out the other. There’s a reason why some are chose to walk certain journeys. There is always hope. Remain hopeful even when it appears as if they’re throwing rocks. The ones who work harder to get others down aren’t filled with joy and there are some no matter what. They’ll continue to try and sabotage whatever some are doing.

So many have expressed how they’ve faced many troubles while trying to get ahead. Some have discovered that the very ones who they’ve perceived as being supporters end up being apart of the sabotage group.  If persons aren’t climbing higher then there’s a possibility that they may not want to see others trying to excel. Although there may be so many who try to hinder “a process.” The person shouldn’t give up. There should be some progress even when there’s very little. Eventually all what needs to come together will.

Transitioning From one Stage to Another
July 10, 2017

There’s plenty of unexpected moments in life. One may never know when there will be a turn of events. There will be times when there are decisions to be made in order to develop further or to be apart of “better living.” The decision to leave one area and navigate to another may not be an easy decision to make but necessary. There will be changes no matter what one does. For some there will be drastic changes. Although some events are unexpected, there will be some which are welcomed and long overdo, perhaps there needed to be a push in order to move.

The choices made may not always be accepted and that’s alright. If others are unwilling to accept “the changes” made then that’s something they’ll have to deal with. There will come a time when a move needs to occur. For some the move could incur abundance because there could be more opportunities to grow in other locations. There be some nervousness when having to make a move elsewhere.

For some they’ve left and came back to their original state. Others will fit right into their new found home. Development is important and not all will know exactly when the right time to proceed to a new life. If being in one place isn’t producing the results one expects then considering leaving should occur. There will be many changes throughout one’s life. Not every person can just get up and go some may need sometime in order to make a move in any location.

There should be thoughts of living a more fulfilling life. some become accustom to their way of life and will refuse to make any moves at all. Of course it’s their choice but moving in a “different” direction may be necessary in order to incur advancement. Not everyone will advance properly by staying in the same setting. There are some who never take a risk due to fear. Some are afraid that they’ll fail if there is any movement at all. Not the best line of thinking.

There is nothing wrong with taking risks. For some there will be many risks taking throughout their lives. Some may be quite comfortable with their lifestyle and not want to make any changes. There are some who have no choice but to relocate elsewhere due to their careers. Career “advancement” may involve relocation and if any person wants to elevate in their career then they’ll make the move. There is a transitioning period. There should be sometime set aside to ponder of what it will take to make such a move.

When making changes in life there could be a lot of opinions floating about. Some may not be welcomed. The decision to navigate elsewhere certainly is up to the person or persons involved. Persons can choose to take in helpful advice but if there’s lots of disagreements about the change then perhaps the listening should cease. Making any move should be planned properly. Although there will be times when some will have to make a move which is unexpected, moves aren’t rash decisions, there should be thinking involved before any relocation.

We simply never know when such a change will arise. There is only one life to live and we should live our lives happily. If being in a place isn’t “generating” any joy and there’s other reasons why there should be a move then perhaps doing so would be best. Of course no person should stay in any location if there’s no joy. A lot have found that the move was the best decision they’ve made.

The Goldwell Open Air Museum- Nevada- A unique museum
May 20, 2017

The Goldwell Open Air museum is located outside Rhyolite which is a ghost town connecting up to Death Valley in California. This philanthropic museum was built in the year 2000 by the late Charles Albert Szukalski. This place was transformed in such a way by the Belgian artists who were the disciples of this remarkable artist. Charles Albert Szukalski has created marvelous artworks in the Mojave desert. Goldwell Museum has artists visiting this wonderful place from around the world who comes to residency programs at the nearby Red Barn Art Center. Even today the place has attracted a lot of visitors and you can see the place always busy flooding with artists and tourists from various parts of the country. This sculpture museum is open to artists and visitors throughout the year.

This is an outdoor museum covering eight acres of land with installations such as mosaic tile couch, giant cinderblock lady and the much. But the life-size ghostly sculptures portraying Leonardo da Vinci’s “The last supper” is the crown jewel of this museum. Albert Szukalski created these life-size models by molding by draping the plaster-soaked burlap over live models and separated them after drying and dried enough to stand on their own. This crown jewel is a must see destination for all the artists. The same technique was used to create the “Ghost rider.”
The museum although has only two to three sculptures but they have a huge importance to the artistic world. The cinderblock lady called “Lady Desert Venus of Nevada” is an added collection by the eminent artist Dr. Hugo Heyrman in the year 1990 inspired by the pixel blocks. He is a contemporary artist who had done a lot od exceptional works in his field. Another sculpture is the “Tribute to Shorty Harris” which led to the discovery of gold rush in 1904. This sculpture was contributed by the prominent artist Fred Bervoets.  This place is a collection of contributions of some phenomenal artworks. If you travel to California then don’t miss this place.
Thanks for reading. Good luck.

Sea Gypsies, I Pity Them, But Authorities Banned Giving Them Money
May 13, 2017


These are people on boats, popularly known as “sea gypsies. We often see them on piers or ports. They sail near arriving or departing roll-on-roll-off ships or other sea vessels transporting passengers from one island to another. They are expert swimmers and divers, who can dive so fast to retrieve coins thrown by ship passengers. They usually shout “hagis!” (throw) for people on board the ships to throw them some money usually coins because paper bills can be swept by the wind or be wet when it touch the water.

As you can see in my photo, they swim or sail next to passenger ferries to beg for money or for some loose change. I pity them to see them struggling to dive especially if passengers throw small coins or smaller denominations of money. If they throw bigger denominations of coins like PhP5.00 or PhP10.00 even PhP1.00, it will be easier to dive for it. It sinks slower too, and from the ship, the thrower or giver can see the coin sinking slowly in a zigzag manner, not sinking directly down the bottom of the sea. So the “sea gypsy” easily catches them.

I wonder how much they can earn from departing and arriving ferries. The government has banned travelers from throwing money to them because a “sea gypsy” died some years ago when he got trapped in the ship’s motor blades. Maybe he tried to retrieve a coin near the blades, and when the motor is running, it can hit the diver or he could be stucked in there!

The local governments through the Department of Social Welfare had offered livelihood opportunities to the “sea gypsies” to prevent such accidents, and for them not to risk their lives trying to dive for coins for a living. This is the reason why travelers were also banned from throwing them coins, so they no longer find it lucrative to beg for money in the ports.

Though ferry or ship passengers are already prohibited from throwing coins to the sea beggars, some could not resist, or they are too soft-hearted or kind-hearted to share some of their loose change to them.

Your independence journey – the do’s and dont’s
May 12, 2017

After a long vacation of day dreaming, running around and almost losing your mind over admissions, visas and God knows what-not, you just can’t wait to begin your new life, isn’t it? The fun, the parties and the freedom you have always dreamt of is just a few days away, and we know you can’t stay still anymore.

While we expect nothing else from you after you have worked so hard to study abroad, we are here to caution you about the various threats, difficulties, and safety measures you ought to keep in mind as a student who has decided to embark on a journey of independence, which of course comes with its own price.

Culture Awareness

When you go to a country, make sure you are aware of the customs and the culture of that particular place. Learn about their dressing norms, what kind of clothes are viewed as acceptable, the gestures used and the meaning they convey, etc. Remember that while some gestures are acceptable and maybe even welcome in your country, it may not be the same case in others.

For e.g, in Paris, eye contact is considered rude and is generally not acceptable. Not only that, unnecessary eye contact with strangers is generally a call for trouble.

In Spain, it is customary to give a two slight pecks on the cheeks when you meet someone as a sign of good manners.

Basically, it is a good idea if you are well versed with the customs and manners of the place you plan to live in previously by some prior research. Make Google Baba your best friend!

Try to Fit In

When you travel to an unknown place, try to observe the locals and fit in the crowd as soon and as easily as you can. Remember that tourists are always easy to target and a young student may be an almost ideal target for any notorious people.

If you are going to a country where English is not the main or first language, it is advisable you have prior knowledge of the language of that area.

Also, while moving around, try to keep a map and rely mostly on your instincts to find your way. In case of help, it is advisable to ask families or women for directions.

Behavior, Instinct and Alertness

Your BIA is your secret mantra!

You must behave smartly, and judge people before getting too close to them. This is especially important if you are a female student. Do no divulge your personal details to people in the first or second meet, and also choose the people you wish to surround yourself with wisely.

Go with your instinct! If you do not like someone’s behavior or feel uncomfortable around someone, immediately back off. Make your feelings clear and do not be ashamed to be blunt, even if it leads to you having fewer friends. Sometimes, it is the smarter thing to do.

When you reach your destination, be alert and the first thing you must look for is the nearest police station and hospital. You must keep any numbers in handy, and make sure you take full advantage of the local security, the organizations for foreign students in you University and any help lines.


New to a place, being a boisterous or flashy is the last thing one would want to be. Your clothes, watches, accessories and jewellery should be adequate and not over the top, especially if you have gone to a country where levels of poverty, theft or danger are high.

It is also advisable to carry more of credit cards and less cash, if otherwise, you must be discrete about your money at all times.

For e.g, if you are paying for something, do not open your wallet so that the people around you can peep into it. It is always better to remove the money previously and kept separately so that it is handy.

While attending parties or going to discs, make sure you are accompanied by people you trust. Refrain from drinking, especially if you are one of those who can’t take drinking!

Avoid getting drunk or doing something stupid, and DO NOT ACCEPT DRINKS under any circumstances from anyone but the bartender.

Another point you must remember is to keep your address private, this is especially important for females. Do no invite or allow people into your home/apartment/room easily and you can wait to chill with your friends once you know them better.

All in all, a little common sense, responsibility and alertness are enough for you to take care of yourself.

Now that your parents are not going to always be around you for that, you can get into the habit of being responsible. Once you have figured out your life, you can relax around a bit and enjoy more, always with your eyes and eyes open.

Good luck and happy traveling!!

Traveling By Sea is So Relaxing
May 8, 2017

My family went on a week-long vacation to an island we longed to visit for a very long time.

It was fun, and so nice to ride a roll-on-roll-off ship, or an inter-island ship which is a common mode of transportation in-between islands in our country. It is relatively cheaper than riding a domestic flight, or in an airplane.

I enjoyed watching the blue sea, the small waves, and the mountains and small islands we passed by. It calms the spirit; it is so relaxing to feel the cool air touching my face. The inter-island ship has an air conditioned area for passengers’ seats, but I preferred to sit at a bench outside that area, where I can watch the sea and the beautiful mountains dotting the skyline.

I caught almost everything in my tablet camera, photos and some videos of it, so I could “review” what I had seen along the way.

We were on the ship for about three hours. Some of my family members just slept all along the trip, but I just watched the beautiful scenery. It is indeed so beautiful; the contrasting colors of the deep blue sea, the green mountain ranges, and the white clouds above. From time to time, I could see some houses dotting the mountain sides, or resorts near the beautiful shorelines. I was so sorry I failed to bring along my binoculars so I can see the view at a closer range.

When traveling by boat or ship, I always wonder what people along the way are doing. I enjoyed watching fishermen on their small boats; some using only paddles, while others have motorized bancas so they could move at a faster speed.

It was so good to travel by sea during the dry months in our country because the sea looked so flat; so silent and so still. I wished I could spot any big fish or dolphins, but there was none. Some years ago, I spotted a group of five dolphins that “followed” the ship we were riding. It was such a beautiful sight!

Before May ends, we are again planning another vacation; and I think we will ride an inter-island ship again.It is so exciting to experience traveling by sea!
