Swayambhu Ziro’s Shivlingam - the largest Shivling in the world
Kardo, Ziro Forest, Arunachal Pradesh

A miraculous discovery of Shiva Lingam of Sidheswar Nath Temple took place in the 1-forthnight of July’2004. According to the Hindu Calendar, it is the month of Shravana, a sacred month to worship Lord Shiva. A Nepalese, Mr Prem Subha was cutting tree standing at the right of the Lingam. The tree was expected to fell just over it, fortunately, nothing harmed it and the tree landed a few meters away from the Lingam. He felt surprised over it and looked at the rising stone. Suddenly something struck in his mind and realized that it was not a mere stone. It stood clearly visible which appealed him to believe it as Shiva Lingam. Being fully inspired with his beliefs, he started telling the people all about what he had seen and what had happened.

The mystery of this Lingam in Ziro has obviously mentioned in the SHIVAPURANA in 17th chapter of the ninth section (Nava Khand ke Satrahwa Adhyaya) edition 1893 that the tallest Shiva Lingam will appear at a place which will be called Lingalaya and the later the whole will be known as Arunachal.

Location : It is about 4 Km away from Hapoli township. The height of Shiva Lingam is 25ft. and 22 ft width at Kardo. Million of devotees who offer their prayers, worship and faith of Lord Shiva in the remote Himalayan region of Tribal beliefs and traditions.

1971-1980: The Short Sari

The tribal sari is a short sari worn in many parts of India. In the late 1960s/1970s you see a glamourisation of the style in the films (this was also the decade of both Satyam Shivam Sundaram and Jait re Jait). It isn’t specifically tribal always, it seems to replace earlier garments like the ghaghra-choli to denote - and sexify - rusticity in films.  And it was filmy fashion enough to be reproduced on Falkland Road.

In our times, amongst the many sari variations that have been attempted can be included the chhotu sari but for some reason it has never caught on.

In the pics: Rekha (1), Mumtaz in Apna Desh (2), Hema Malini (3), Yogita Bali (4), Sabya chhotu sari (5) and to be id’ed (6).
