Empire, Faith & War: The Sikhs and World War One’ will be held at the Brunei Gallery at the School of Oriental & African Studies’ (SOAS), Russell Square, from 9 July to 28 September, 2014

"The British Indian Army’s contribution was actually far greater than the better-known efforts of the white commonwealth countries of Australia, Canada and New Zealand put together. The non-white Empire’s efforts have largely been forgotten and their heroism and sacrifices omitted from mainstream narratives, or left as somewhat forlorn footnotes of history." Amandeep Madra UKPHA chari

Craftsmen repairing ther, a giant chariot of a temple

Temple cars are chariots used to carry representations of Hindu gods. The car is usually used on festival days called Ther Thiruvizha (தேர் திருவிழா) which usually happen once in a year, during which many people gather around the temple and pull the car. ThiruvarurSrivilliputhurTirunelveli in Tamil Nadu and Puri, in Odisha, host some of the largest annual temple car festivals.

One of the very old and ancient festivals that often mentioned in Tamil literature, usually held during the summer between March and April months of every year, lasts more than 25 days. The main attraction of the festival is the procession of the great temple car of Thiruvarur (in Tamil: ஆழித் தேர்). This great chariot is said to the biggest one of its type in size and height. It is 96 feet (29 m) tall and weights more than 300 tons. The size of the largest temple cars inspired the English term Juggernaut (from Jagannath), signifying a tremendous, virtually unstoppable force or phenomenon.

Vimāna is a word with several meanings ranging from temple or palace to mythological flying palaces described in Sanskrit epics.

"Their method of propulsion, was “anti-gravitational” and was based upon a system analogous to that of “laghima,” the unknown power of the ego existing in man’s physiological makeup, “a centrifugal force strong enough to counteract all gravitational pull.”
