Director Naga Launches our Online Video Channel Mystic Traditions MyTra
We are happy to announce the launch of our new YouTube Channel Mystic Traditions MyTra by Director Naga. To professionals with expertise in their domain, scaling to an online channel is not easy both in terms of emotional and mental makeup and technical parameters. When we talk about Vlogging, it is another domain and the intention of it must be made clear. We chose to keep this Channel in English to reach more people and we will soon launch a Tamil version too.
Effective Use of Interior décor to Bring Indian Art into Living Space
Interior decor makes a building of mortar and bricks to a living space. What if we get an opportunity to make our contemporary Indian Art part of our home integrated so beautifully into our spaces to enhance the looks and go beyond just framed pieces of it on walls here and there as decorative pieces? Living Canvas is such an initiative by Pallavi Goenka and initially we could not really understand how we can make use of art beyond pieces of art on the wall. Thanks to their sincerity in getting across samples of materials they use and its applications in interior decor, we could appreciate the efforts that have gone into this venture.
Heritage Building Chepauk Palace, Fire at Chepauk Palace
Pongal celebrations were dampened in the city when a major fire broke out in the wee hours of the morning at the Ezhilagam Complexin Chepauk, Chennai on Jan 16, 2012.
A major fire broke out in Khalsa Mahal, part of the Chepauk Palace, a heritage building, destroying the offices of the directorates of Social Welfare, and Industries and Commerce, in the early hours of Monday. One fireman was killed and three others, including a Divisional Fire Officer, were injured when the roof of the 18th century structure came crashing down during the five-hour firefighting operations.
The fire, in which important government documents and papers were charred, was due to an electrical short circuit, suspect sources in the Fire and Rescue Services.
A fine example of Indo-Saracenic architecture, Khalsa Mahal was one of the two structures that formed the core of the palace, which was taken over by the British in 1859. In the 1960s, the Tamil Nadu government constructed the Ezhilagam complex, fronting the Marina beach, and located several of its offices there, including some in the palace buildings.
