Why Udupi people excel catering industry?





Interesting piece of information...

Why Udupi people excel  catering industry?

Five thousand years ago, the Kurukshetra war, between the Pandavas and the Kauravas, was the mother of all battles. Nobody could remain neutral. You had to be either on the Kaurava side or the Pandava side. All the kings – hundreds of them – aligned themselves on one side or the other.

The king of Udupi however chose to remain neutral. He spoke to Krishna and said,

‘Those who fight battles have to eat. I will be the caterer for this battle.’

Krishna said, ‘Fine. Somebody has to cook and serve so you do it.’ They say over 500,000 soldiers had gathered for the battle. The battle lasted 18 days, and every day, thousands were dying. So the Udupi king had to cook that much less food, otherwise it would go waste. Somehow the catering had to be managed. If he kept cooking for 500,000 people it wouldn’t work. Or if he cooked for less, soldiers would go hungry.

The Udupi king managed it very well. The amazing thing was, every day, the food was exactly enough for all the soldiers and no food was wasted. After a few days, people were amazed, ‘How is he managing to cook the exact amount of food!’ No one could know how many people had died on any given day. By the time they could have taken account of these things, the next day morning would have dawned and again it was time to fight.

There was no way the caterer could know how many thousands had died each day, but every day he cooked exactly the volume of food necessary for the rest of the armies. When someone asked him, ‘How do you manage this?’ the Udupi king replied, ‘Every night I go to Krishna’s tent.

Krishna likes to eat boiled groundnuts in the night so I peel them and keep them in a bowl. He eats just a few peanuts, and after he is done I count how many he has eaten. If it’s 10 peanuts, I know tomorrow 10,000 people will be dead. So the next day when I cook lunch, I cook for 10,000 people less. Every day I count these peanuts and cook accordingly, and it turns out right.’ Now you know why Krishna is so nonchalant during the whole Kurukshetra war.

Many of the Udupi people are caterers even today.

MARGHABANDHU STOTRAM

Shambho Maha deva deva, Shiva
Shambho Maha deva devesa Shambho,
Shambho Mahadeva deva.
Prostrations to He who blesses us with prosperity,
Prostrations to the greatest God,
Prostrations to the abode of peace,
Prostrations to Him, who blesses us with riches,
And Prostrations to him who is the God of Gods.
(To make it readable I have added the word Prostrations which is a hidden word in the above sloka. This sloka has to be recited every time immediately after reciting the five verses given below)
Phalavanamrath kireetam,
Phala nethrachisha, Dagdha pancheshu Keetam,
Soolahathaaraathikootam, Shudhamradhendu choodam,
Bhaje Margabandhum 1 (Shambho Mahadeva deva…)
I pray to that friend of the path,
Who wears a crown on his head,
Who kills his enemies by his trident,
Who wears a crescent which showers nectar,
And who burnt by the fire of his eyes,
Which are on his forehead,
Him who has the five arrows like an insect.
(Prostrations to he who blesses….)
(Manmatha, the lord of love has five flower arrows –lotus, Asoka, mango, jasmine and the blue lotus. Lord Shiva killed him by the fire generated by his third eye.)
Ange virjangu jangam,
Abhra Ganga tharangabhi Ramothamangam,
Omkaravati kurangam, Sidha samsevathangrivyagram,
Bhaje Margabandum (Shambho Mahadeva…) 2
I pray to that friend of the path,
Whose limbs are adorned by a snake,
Who is a deer in the park of holy pranava,
Whose feet is worshipped by great sages,
And who looks charming with his head,
Adorned by the Ganga of the sky,
(Prostrations to he who blesses….)
(Pranava is the holy letter “Om”. Akasa Ganga resides on the Head of Lord Shiva)
Nithyam, Chidanada roopam,
Ninhutha sesha lokesa vairi prathapam,
Kartheswaragendrachapam, krithivasam,
Bhaje divya sanmarga bandhum (Shambo mahadeva deva…) 3
I pray to that friend of the good divine path,
Who is perennial and of the form of,
Truth, intelligence and bliss,
Who destroyed without reminder,
The glory of the fame of the enemy of Indra,
Who used the golden Mount Meru,
As his bow in the war against three asuras,
And who dresses himself in hides of trees.
(Prostrations to he who blesses….)
(Shiva destroyed the pride of Ravana when he visited his abode. He used Mount Meru as his bow to win over the Tripuras)
Kandarpa darpagna meesam,
Kala kantam Mahesam Maha vyoma kesam,
Kundabhadandam Suresam, Koti surya prakasam,
Bhajhe Marga bandhum. (Shambho mahadeva deva…) 4
I pray to that friend of the path,
Who put an end to the pride of God of love,
Who is the great Lord who has a deep blue throat,
Who has the great sky as his matted lock,
Whose teeth resemble the white jasmine flowers,
And who has the shine of billions of Suns.
(Prostrations to he who blesses….)
Mandara Bhutherydaram, Mandaragendrasaaram, Mahagouryudooram,
Sindhoora dhoora pracharam, Sindhoorajathi dheeram,
Bhaje Margabandhum (Shambho Mahadeva deva…) 5
I pray to that friend of the path,
Who is more generous than the wish giving tree,
Who is the strength behind the great Mandara Mountain,
Who is very close to the great Goddess Gauri,
Who has a red colour far intense than red lead,
And who is more resolute than the God of the ocean.
(Prostrations to he who blesses….)
(Mandara Mountain was used to churn the ocean of milk.)
Phala Sruthi
Appayyajjwendra Geetham stotra rajam,
Patedhyasthu Bhakthya prayane,
Thasyartha sidhim Vidathe , marga madhye
Abhayam chaashuthosho Mahesa (Shambho Maha deva Shambho…)
Narration of Benefit
This king of stotras written by,
Appayya who is the performer of sacrifices,
If read with devotion during journey,
Would ensure fulfillment of wishes,
Protection during journey,
And Lord Shiva would be easily pleased.

And some quotes on roses...


“Some people grumble that roses have thorns; 

I am grateful that thorns have roses.” 


"A rose's rarest essence lives in the thorn."
"A thorn defends the rose, harming only those who would steal the blossom."
"No rose without a thorn."
"Roses fall, but the thorns remain."
"The rose is a flower of love. The world has acclaimed it for centuries. Pink roses are for love hopeful and expectant. White roses are for love dead or forsaken, but the red roses, ah the red roses are for love triumphant.     "
"Do not watch the petals fall from the rose with sadness, know that, like life, things sometimes must fade, before they can bloom again."
"A rose must remain with the sun and the rain or its lovely promise won't come true."
"I'd rather have roses on my table than diamonds on my neck."
