Marble Rocks at Bhedaghat
Soaring in glittering splendour, the Marble Rocks at Bhedaghat rise to a hundred feet on either side of the Narmada. The serene loveliness of the scene is one of cool quiet, the sunlight sparkling on the marble-white pinnacles and casting dappled shadows on the pellucid waters. These white rocks with views of black and dark green volcanic seams are truly majestic, and produce a magical effect on moonlit nights
The holy river flows by tranquilly flanked by the towering cliffs which reflect in it like a mirror the changing moods of nature. A little distance away, it becomes turbulent as it plunges in a mighty water fall known as Dhuandhar.
In his Highlands of Central India Captain J. Forsyth speaks eloquently about the infinitely varied beauty of the rocks :
"the eye never wearies of the . . . effect produced by the broken and reflected sunlight, now glancing from a pinnacle of snow-white marble reared against the deep blue of the sky as from a point of silver, touching here and there with bright lights the prominence of the middle heights and again losing itself in the soft bluish grays of their recesses. . .
Here and there the white saccharine limestone is seamed by veins of dark green or black volcanic rock; a contrast which only enhances like a setting of jet, the purity of the surrounding marble."
Places to visit
The perpendicular magnesium limestone rocks fringe the crystal clear placid waters of the Narmada providing a fascinating site. Boating facilities are available between November-May. Boating on a moonlit night, when the whole stretch of water is transformed into a sheet of liquid silver is absolutely magical. In the narrow channel of the mighty river, there is a place approached so closely from the opposite banks that the local people have aptly named it the "Monkey's Leap" .
The Narmada, making its way through the Marble Rock,s narrows down and then plunges in a waterfall known as Dhuandhar or the smoke casade. So powerful is the plunge that its roar is heard from a far distance. The falls and the breaking of the volume of water at the crest present an awesome spectacle of Nature's power unleashed.
Chausat Yogini Temple
Situated atop a hillock and approached by a long flight of steps, the Chusat Yogini Temple commands a singularly beautiful view of the Narmada flowing through the jagged Marble Rocks. Dedicated to goddess Durga, this 10th century temple has exquisitely carved stone figures of deities belonging to the kalchuri period. According to a local legend, this ancient temple is connected to the Gond Queen Durgavati's palace through an underground passage.
The soapstone revealed by the Narmada provides occupation to families of carvers of gods and goddesses, lingas, crosses, madonnas, ashtrays and trinket boxes.
Black Hole in Unexpected Place !
------ Image Info -----------
Medium-size black holes actually do exist, according to the latest findings from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, but scientists had to look in some unexpected places to find them.
The previously undiscovered black holes provide an important link that sheds light on the way black holes grow. Even more odd, these new black holes were found in the cores of glittering, "beehive" swarms of stars — called globular star clusters — that orbit our Milky Way and other galaxies.
The new findings promise a better understanding of how galaxies and globular clusters first formed billions of years ago. Globular star clusters contain the oldest stars in the universe. If globulars have black holes now, then globulars most likely had black holes when they originally formed. The new results indicate that the very sedate, elderly environments of globular clusters house these exotic objects, quite unlike the violent cores of some galaxies.

Hollywood no longer glitters in gold. Green is the new bling and it’s a trend that’s catching on. Earth Day extravaganzas are up next!
Happy Earth Day from everyone at Get-the-Daily. I’m Dana Ward here with your eco-friendly update.
The 39th annual celebration practically resembled that of a red carpet event – but at different locations all over the U-S. Celebs lined-up to support Earth Day and show that green is the new pink!
Topanga Earth Day Festival took-over the entire weekend with music, art, lectures, enviro-friendly technology and how-to-go-green workshops.
Some stores – such as Legends in Malibu – donated its weekend profit to local environment helpers.
Also over the weekend, fans were able to catch tons of musical performances – including the Roots, Ziggy Marley and Menudo – nationwide, as the events are sponsored by the Earth Day Network and the Green Apple Festival. The tour buses are even a bit earth-savvy, getting filled with bio-diesel on the run.
And some stars took a more political approach. Zach Braff and Chevy Chase urge Americans to pick-up their phones Tuesday to call the Capitol and tell our decision-makers that solving the climate change is important to us collectively and it needs to be reflected in future policy.
The list of green-friendly celebs goes on. B-Spears donated the proceeds from the sale of her clothing from her ‘How I Met Your Mother’ debut to the Natural Resources Defense Council. Leo DiCaprio bought new digs in the very eco-friendly Battery Park City in New York. Edward Norton delivered a speech in a Washington mall in support of going green. A handful of other superstars paid a few grand to take part in a meal made from local foods, all benefits going to the Soil Association.
And these are only the events happening BEFORE Earth Day. A whole bunch of super celebs will likely surprise us with more green envy on Tuesday.
That’s your Earth Day update for now. From Get-the-Daily-dot-com, I’m Dana Ward. Thanks for watching!

SAVAGE GRACE, based on the award winning book, tells the incredible true story of Barbara Daly, who married above her class to Brooks Baekeland, the dashing heir to the Bakelite plastics fortune. Beautiful, red-headed and charismatic, Barbara is still no match for her well-bred husband. The birth of the couple’s only child, Tony, rocks the uneasy balance in this marriage of extremes. Tony is a failure in his father’s eyes. As he matures and becomes increasingly close to his lonely mother, the seeds for a tragedy of spectacular decadence are sown. Spanning 1946 to 1972, the film unfolds in six acts. The Baekelands’ pursuit of social distinction and the glittering “good life” propels them across the globe. We follow their heady rise and tragic fall against the backdrop of New York, Paris, Cadaques, Mallorca and London.

n Swish, author Joel Derfner takes his readers on a flamboyant adventure along the glitter-strewn road from fabulous to divine. Whether he’s confronting the demons of his past at a GLBT summer camp, using the Internet to “meet” men—many, many men—or plunging headfirst (and nearly naked) into the shady world of go-go dancing, he reveals himself with every gayer-than-thou flourish to be not just a stylish explorer but also a fearless one. So fearless, in fact, that when he sneaks into a conference for people who want to cure themselves of their homosexuality, he turns the experience into one of the most fascinating, deeply moving chapters of the book. Derfner, like King Arthur, Christopher Columbus, and Indiana Jones—but with a better haircut and a much deeper commitment to fad diets—is a hero destined for legend.

The latest update over the 10th Osian's-Cinefan Film Festival of Asian and Arab
Cinema which came to an end with a glittering awards ceremony on Saturday.
The Houston Rockets made history Wednesday night. Now they can go back to trying to make the playoffs.
Tracy McGrady scored 25 points and the Houston Rockets won their franchise-record 16th game, beating Indiana 117-99.
The Rockets are 4-0 since losing Yao Ming for the season with a stress fracture in his foot and have won 20 of their last 21 games, and own the longest winning streak in the NBA this season.
Houston is still clawing for a playoff spot in the tough Western conference and plays the division rival Mavericks in Dallas on Thursday night.
"It's great to have your name down in history," Rafer Alston said. "We are having some great regular-season success right now, but we know the big picture is getting it done in the postseason. You enjoy it for the moment, but you have to continue to prepare for every game."
The Rockets led by 17 at halftime, but two runs by Indiana in the third quarter got the Pacers within seven. Houston scored 11 of the last 13 points of the quarter to stretch the lead to 16 and the Pacers wouldn't threaten again.
It's Houston's seventh straight win by 10 points or more, which extends a franchise record.
"It's all about confidence," McGrady said. "We have great chemistry and guys know their roles here. We all are playing so well, we just can't really count on one guy."
All but two of McGrady's points came in the first half and he had six rebounds and five assists. Alston added 21 points and had seven assists.
"This was a big win for us, we were trying to make history," McGrady said on the court as red confetti rained down.
Houston used an 14-4 run in the first half of the fourth quarter to stretch its lead to 108-82 and send scores of fans streaming for the exits. That run included a one-handed dunk by Carl Landry that brought the crowd to its feet and ended with a long 3-pointer by Bobby Jackson.
Both teams played mostly backups after that.
Among the fans that stayed, several held signs, including one that said "Sweet 16, Go Rockets" with the 16 made out of glittering dark pink numbers.
Another sign read "Mavs, Here We Come." After Dallas on Thursday Houston hosts New Orleans Saturday.
"I think most of us are already focused on Dallas," Shane Battier said. "We know that this game, while significant, doesn't really guarantee us anything."
