The Nagas

R. Visvanathan P.J.K

The people who migrated to the Indian peninsula were the Negroids and the Australites. These people spread to the various parts of India. During the duration of the Indus valley civilization which was purely an Indian development these people were joined by the long head fair skinned east Mediterranean people. The Nagas occupied the Nabada region of the Indus civilization. The Kuru – Panchalas who were expanding drove the Yadavas out of Sourasena. The Yadavas in turn drove the Nagas from the Nabada region and created the Yadava Boja states of western India. The Nagas moved south and settled in the Malabar and the Coromandel coast of south India. The Nagas brought about a great deal of development including the bringing south of the north Dravida dialect Centamil which became the standard language of the Tamils.

Priceless Expressions! (Friday Funnies XII)

It is not Friday yet , but I could not  go pass this  video without sharing with you all . Have a  good laugh as I did.

Cannot fix a stupid! (Friday Funnies XI)


A man was driving when he saw the flash of a traffic camera.

He figured out  that his picture had been taken for exceeding the limit, even though he knew that he was not speeding.

Just to be sure, he went around the block and passed the same spot, driving even more slowly,

but again the camera flashed.

Now he began to think that this was quite funny, so he drove even slower as he passed the area

again, but the traffic camera again flashed. He tried a fourth time with the same result..

He did this a fifth time and was now laughing when the camera flashed as he rolled past, this

time at a snail’s pace.

Two weeks later, he got five tickets in the mail for driving without a seat belt.

Strange Mannerism

A guy bought a new fridge for his house.

To get rid of his old fridge, he put it  in his front yard and hung a sign on it saying:

“Free to  a good home”

 For three days the fridge sat there without anyone looking twice.

 He eventually decided that people were too mistrustful of this deal, so he changed the sign to read:

‘Fridge for sale $50.’

 The next day someone stole it!
