Thanjavur (Tamil: தஞ்சாவூர் (tañcāvūr))’, formerly Tanjore, is a municipality and the headquarters of the Thanjavur district in the Indian state of Tamil Nadu. The name Thanjavur is derived from “Tanjan”, a legendary asura in Hindu mythology. Thanjavur is one of the ancient cities in India and has a long and varied history dating back to the Sangam period. The town was founded by Mutharayar king Swaran Maran and rose to prominence during the rule of the Later Cholas when it served as the capital of the Chola empire. After the fall of the Cholas, the city was ruled by various dynasties like Pandyas, Vijayanagar Empire, Madurai Nayaks, Thanjavur Nayaks, Thanjavur Marathas and British. It has been a part of independent India since 1947.
Thanjavur is an important center of South Indian art and architecture. Most of the Great Living Chola Temples which are UNESCO World Heritage Monuments are located in and around Thanjavur. The foremost among the Great Living Chola temples, the Brihadeeswara Temple, is located in the center of the city. Thanjavur is also the home of the Tanjore painting, a painting style unique to the region. The city is an important agricultural center located at the heart of the region, known as the Rice bowl of Tamil Nadu. South Zone Culture Centre in Thanjavur is one of many regional cultural centres established by Indian Government to preserve and promote traditional cultural heritage of India. It had a population of a 2,21,190 in 2001.
Thanjavur is well-connected by roads and railways with other parts of India and with cities and towns in Tamil Nadu. The nearest airport is Tiruchirapalli International Airport located at a distance of 56 kilometres. The nearest seaport is Nagapattinam which is 84 kilometres (52 mi) from Thanjavur.
There are no references to Thanjavur in any of the Sangam period records though some scholars believe that the city has been existing since then. Kovil Venni, situated at a distance of 15 miles to the east of Thanjavur, was the site of the Battle of Venni between Karikala and a confederacy of the Cheras and the Pandyas. The Cholas seemed to have faced an invasion of the Kalabhras in the 3rd century AD after which the kingdom faded into obscurity. The region around the present-day Thanjavur was conquered by the Mutharayars in the 6th century CE and ruled up to 849 AD.

If you trace the history of so-called futuristic car tech over the past 30 years or so, you’ll find some real advances—particularly in safety and performance. Modern-day rigid passenger cages, crumple zones, stability control, and (more recently) direct injection and direct-shift gearboxes have advanced the state of the art. A lot of car tech, though, particularly inside the vehicle, ended up being more flash than substance. But new technologies are putting us back on the track to truly connected, do-it-all automobiles.
Today’s Cars: Where We’re Parked
Talking cars, for example, were all the rage in the early 1980s; think Knight Rider, but on regular cars, and without David Hasselhoff. The Datsun 280ZX and Nissan Maxima told you when you left your lights on; Eddie Murphy made fun of the idea in his stand-up act, and the whole phenomenon faded away. (Nissan phased out the name Datsun around the same time.) The same goes for digital speedometers: Chevy Corvettes and many Fords had them in the 1980s, but enthusiasts decried their inability to show rate of change the way a sweeping needle could. More recently, a few mainstream models like the Honda Civic and the Toyota Prius brought digital instrumentation back, but it’s still far from universal.
Nonetheless, after several decades of cassette tape and CD-based stereo systems and not much else, we’re finally seeing a renaissance in just what should make up the standard controls for a modern-day automobile. It’s only now that we’re beginning to see real advances with staying power, such as iPod and navigation system integration. In fact, we’re already moving past those, from CD and GPS-based systems in center consoles to, well, something. No one is quite sure yet; there’s no one clear standard.
The latest in-car “infotainment” systems seem to do everything. But it’s far from clear how much of everything people want to be able to do inside their cars, or whether it’s safe to do so (at least for the driver). One key trend will be figuring out the line between where it makes more sense for your car to do something instead of your phone. And then there’s the user interface question. Right now, a car’s primary controls—steering, accelerator, and brakes—have been more or less set for decades. Secondary controls, including the lights, horn, stereo, heater, and so on, are ripe for experimentation, which can be a good thing or a bad thing.

Not an animation story but a real incident.
Barun Khandelwal, a seven year old boy of 8/1, Diamond Harbour Road, Kolkata was playing near an elevator on saturday 23.07.2011, when one of his friend playfully pressed the lift button. His left hand got trapped in the auto doors of the lift and chopped off his hand.
Barun had the courage, lifted his chopped hand, informed his grand mother on sixth floor about the incident. The boy then walked down the staircase with his grand mother and went straight to hospital with the chopped-off hand. He bravely asked the doctor to reattach it.
Barun never lost his senses and steadily under went the critical surgery for six hours. He never cried during the surgery. said Anupam Ghosh, consultant Plastic and hand surgery, who performed the operation at Calcutta Medical Reserch Institute Hospital.
Barun was more surprised by the scared reactions of people around him. He had got inspiration from the cartoon films on TV, and felt that the hand can be easily re-attached after an operation.
