and in a fantastic plot twist, the answer was not to nuke the enemy

The Bhaja Caves of Maharashtra, India.

Bhaja contains about 29 rock-cut caves, which date back to the 2nd century BCE, and is described by the Archaeological Survey of India to be “one of the important Buddhist centres of Hinayana faith in Maharashtra.” 

A prominent features of Bhaja is Cave 12, a chaitya-griha, pictured in the final photo, which is considered one of the earliest of its kind. The stupa at the back of the large apsidal hall was used for worship. Cave 20 contains a group of stupas, which were built in memory of deceased monks, and probably once contained their relics.

Cave 18 was a monastery, and its verandah contains two famous sculpted reliefs. One of these (pictured in the 2nd photo) is located to the left of the door. This artwork depicts a person riding an elephant (thought by some to be Indra) who carries an ankusa (elephant goad), with attendants aside the figure, carrying a banner. The second relief shows a royal personage aside two women. The royal figure (who some identify as Sun god Surya), rides a chariot driven by four horses, and appears to be trampling a demon-like figure.

Kard Dagger

  • Dated: 18th century
  • Place of Origin: Indian
  • Measurements: overall length: 10.5in (267mm). Blade length: 6.75in (165mm)

Probably from Rajasthan or Central India, this knife categorised as a ‘kard’ has grips scales made of bone. The iron bolster is chiselled, while the scabbard has a silver throat piece displaying a Hindu religious icon, probably Surya Dev, the Hindu Sun god, with attached bells and suspension chains. The chape is again made of silver, with a lion devouring his prey. The scabbard is covered in red velvet, the throat featuing brown leather.

My uncle ties his dreads around my cousin to keep her from falling off his shoulders and I think it’s the greatest thing I’ve ever seen.
