Bharathakala Natya Academy was established to promote Bharatanatyam, one of India’s oldest and most sacred classical dance forms. The mission of the school is to impart this divine art and inculcate Indian culture and values in students.
The academy wishes to bestow upon its students the essence of connecting the mind, body, and soul through learning and understanding this sacred art form. Each student is assured individual attention and motivated to participate in the school’s dance productions and programs. “There is no other knowledge, no other learning, no other art, not even yoga or action that is not found in dance.” ~ Natyashastra.
The Georgia State Fair tradition began in 1846 by the Southern Central Agricultural Society. The purpose of the fair was to create an event that would promote Georgia Farmers and agriculture interests throughout Georgia and into the adjacent states, with this in mind, the first Georgia State Fair was held at Stone Mountain. Due to the large response to the fair it was moved to Atlanta in 1850. After seeking a more centralized location, they settled at the fairgrounds in Macon a year later. The Seventh Street fairgrounds housed the fair until the Civil War, which was then transformed into Camp Oglethorpe. Post-Civil War, the fair was held in different cities throughout Georgia.
By 1871, the 273 acre Central City Park was transformed into the permanent location for the fair. This project included creating the entrance gate, buildings to house the expositions, main stage, race track, and even a terrace on the river bank. The Georgia State Fair’s ownership changed many times throughout the next 100 years, and by 1982 the Macon Exchange Club Fair Association (MECFA) was formed to purchase it. 1990 brought the appearance of another fair being held in the fall and in close proximity to the Georgia State Fair, which resulted in in the fall dates of 2009 being postponed to the spring of 2010. Unfortunately, the spring time fair was not able to continue in the agriculture and livestock programs and after a few years of running the event at a loss, the MECFA voted to discontinue the tradition of the fair.
In 2011 the MECFA contacted a Tennessee based company, Universal Fairs, to come discuss taking ownership and continue this great Georgia tradition. Universal Fairs purchased the Georgia State Fair in 2011 and in 2012 decided to hold the spring fair as well as add a fall fair hosted at the Atlanta Motor Speedway. The focus of Universal Fairs is to return the Georgia State Fair back to its former glory and rebuild the agriculture and livestock programs that the first fair was founded upon.

Google the words “natural gas explosion” and you get well over 2.2 million hits – that’s because natural gas explosions seem to be occurring with disturbing regularity in this country.
Natural gas explosions are happening with increasing frequency across the country.
January 19, 2011, a natural gas main explodes in Philadelphia, killing one individual and critically injuring three others.
December 29, 2010, a massive natural gas explosion destroys a furniture store in aDetroit suburb, killing two employees. Their families have filed wrongful death suits against the natural gas utility, Consumers Energy.
September 9, 2010, an horrific natural gas explosion devastated a neighborhood in San Bruno, California, killing eight people and destroying 38 homes.
The question, we fear, is not if a natural gas explosion of similar magnitude could happen in New York City or some other major American urban center, it’s when.
Indeed, there are more than 5,000 miles of natural gas pipeline beneath the streets, homes and buildings of New York City and according to public records, a significant portion of that underground pipeline is made of aging cast iron that’s prone to leak. Indeed, hundreds of miles of this pipeline are at least 100 years old and some of it even dates back to 1889.
The pipeline that exploded in San Bruno, by comparison, was 62 years old.
Unfortunately, no one can say with any certainty what condition the natural gas pipelines under New York City are in; the only way anyone can find out for sure is when there’s a leak – or worse.
The New York Post ran a story detailing the magnitude of the problem back in September, in the days following the natural gas explosion that destroyed nearly three city blocks in San Bruno, but since that time, the public discourse has moved on, overtaken by current events that have pushed the problem out of the public eye.
As far as the natural gas utilities are concerned, that’s probably a good thing. But San Bruno hasn’t forgotten, and neither should New York City.
How safe is New York City’s natural gas infrastructure?
Over the coming weeks and months, NaturalGasWatch.com will track some of these natural gas tragedies, highlighting some of the more disturbing incidents.
More importantly, NaturalGasWatch.com will begin looking more closely at New York City’s aging natural gas infrastructure in an effort to quantify the magnitude of the risk in New York City.

The labor-intensive cuisine and its mix of spices is more often than not a revelation for those who sit down to eat it for the first time. Heavy doses of cardamom, cayenne, tamarind and other flavors can overwhelm an unfamiliar palate. Together, they help form the pillars of what tastes so good to so many people.For food and dinning click here The best indian resturant around atlanta
Indian spices include a variety of spices grown across the Indian subcontinent (a sub-region of South Asia). With different climates in different parts of the country, India produces a variety of spices, many of which are native to the Subcontinent, while others were imported from similar climates and have since been cultivated locally for centuries.
Spices are used in different forms – whole, chopped, ground, roasted, sauteed, fried and as topping. They blend food to extract the nutrients and bind them in a palatable form. Some spices are added at the end as a flavouring and are typically heated in a pan with ghee or cooking oil before being added to a dish. Lighter spices are added last, and spices with strong flavour should be added first. Curry is not a spice, but a term used by western people and refers to any dish in Indian cuisine that contains several spices blended together and could be with a gravy base or a dry item.
