Corrupted English and other language words from Indian Sanskrit / Samskruta words 49

For over 1000 such type of words, you can visit the below link:

801. Moment: In samskruta moment means 'muhurtam / muhurta / muhurt'.                        

802. Stop: In samskruta stop means 'stobhati / stira / stir'.                        

803. Textile: In samskruta thread means 'tanti'. Thus doing work using tanti is textile. In samskruta textile means 'tantikArya'. Thus very clearly the English word textile is taken from samskruta.                        
804. Practical: In samskruta practical means 'prayokAtmaka / prayogAtmak'. Clearly the English word is corrupted version of the samskruta word.                        

805. Chief: In samskruta chief means 'zreSTha' (read as shreshttha). Always remember, Europeans can't pronounce hard words like above. Also they want to make things easy and small.  shreshttha = shresh + ttha = chresh + ttha = chief + ttha = chief. Another word for chief in samskruta is 'pradAna'.                        
806. Poor: In samskruta poor means 'durgati'. durgati = dur + gati = poor + gati = poor. Again pronunciation difference. Also in samskruta poor means 'daridra'.                        

807. True / Truth: In samskruta true / truth means 'tatva / tatv'. Directly stolen word(s).                        

808. Section: In samskruta section (a part of cut or hole) means 'chedah / cheda / ched'. ched is little difficult word to pronounce. ched = sect. Europeans love making things easier.                        

809. Chapter: In samskruta chapter means 'stabaka / stabak'. In samskruta chapter has other different words too like 'adhyaya / skanda etc.                        

810. Appendix: In samskruta appendix means 'adhyAsa / adhyAs'.

Maharshi Kashyapa, his wives and there children

Maharshi Kashyapa, his wives and there children

Kashyapa married thirteen of Daksha’s daughters. Their names were Aditi, Diti, Danu, Arishta, Surasa, Khasa, Surabhi, Vinata, Tamra, Krodhavasha, Ida, Kadru and Muni.

Aditi’s sons were the twelve gods known as the adityas. Their names were Vishnu, Shakra, Aryama, Dhata, Vidhata, Tvashta, Pusha, Vivasvana, Savita, Mitravaruna, Amsha and Bhaga.

Diti’s sons were the daityas (demons). They were named Hiranyaksha and Hiranyakshipu, and amongst their descendants were several other powerful daityas like Vali and Vanasura. Diti also had a daughter named Simhika who was married to a danava (demon) named Viprachitti. Their offsprings were terrible demons like Vatapi, Namuchi, Ilvala, Maricha and the nivatakavachas.

The hundred sons of Danu came to be known as danavas. The danavas were thus cousins to the daityas and also to the adityas. In the danava line were born demons like the poulamas and kalakeyas.

Arishta’s sons were the gandharvas (singers of h…

Bhakthi Story: Krishna killed Ekalavya, but why?

Krishna killed Ekalavya, but why?

We all know that Ekalavya had made the clay statue of the Guru Dronacharya and he was practicing the Dhanur Vidya and was also had become master in some of the Dhanur Vidyas. 
After some time, Dronacharya comes to know about the Ekalavya practicing Dhanur Vidya by keeping a statue of himself. Once Dronacharya meets Ekalavya and asks him "why are you practicing Dhanur Vidya by keeping my statue in front" and for this Ekalavya replies that "Guru Deva I have accepted you as my Guru and I have been practicing Dhanur Vidya since than". 
Than Dronacharya after few days again meet Ekalavya and asks him right hand's Thumb finger as the Guru dakshina. Ekalavya without any hesitation cuts off his finger to give his Thumb as the Guru dakshina to his Guru Dronacharya. 
We should think why Guru Dronacharya did like this?. Was Guru Dronacharya was jealous of Ekalavya that one day Ekalavya will become a much better Dhanur Vidyashali than the Nara…

Fighting between Krishna and Shiva: Story of Vanasura (Banasura), Usha and Anirudhha

Fighting between Krishna and Shiva: Story of Vanasura (Banasura), Usha and Anirudhha

Krishna had more than one lakh and eighty thousand sons. But the best of them was Pradyumna and Pradyumna’s son was Aniruddha. 
Vali’s son was Vanasura and Vanasura’s daughter was Usha. Usha once met Parvati and Shiva. She asked Parvati who her husband would be. Parvati replied that in the month of Vaishakha a person would appear in Usha’s dreams. And this person would be her husband.

As promised by Parvati, Usha did see a person in her dreams. But she did not know how this person was. She told her friend Chitraleka about this. Chitralekha thought that the only way to find out was to show Usha the protraits of various important personages amongst the devas, gandharvas and asuras. But the required person could not be identified from these portraits. Usha was then shown the portraits of humans and immediately she identified Aniruddha."

Many years ago, Vanasura had prayed to Mahadeva," he had said,…
