Ganesh Pol, Birla Auditorium, Jaipur
India

The Ganesh "Pol" or the Ganesh Gate, is the Centre piece of the entire Birla Auditorium and Planetarium complex, located in the middle of "new" Jaipur city, at the Statue Circle, the nodal point of Jaipur.

The Birla Auditorium is a popular location for various trade shows, and conferences. There is also a planetarium that shows a shot video to "introduce" children to the Cosmos! Trust me it's a sad sad video, the amateur astronomer in me was so ...! There are stories, that the "original" GaneshPol was the name of a gate in the Amber/Nahargarh Fort, and when it ceased to exist, the name was adopted to keep the tradition alive, (a la, rebirth!)

The Birla Auditorium, was sponsored by the Birla Family, one of the richest families of modern India.

There is a Birla Temple/Mandir close by, that too is a "Ganesh" temple, a marble structure made using the ancient art of "Vaastu Shastra"

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
