Haha!! Great to see this video up here..

Its neither Bollywood nor Tollywood, its Kollywood
Different states in India have their own languages, they are part of the Indian languages. The people of those states fondly call their own Film Industry with various names. Here is a short list: -

Region/State - Language - Actual name of the Industry - Pet Name ;)
A few northern states in India - Hindi (official language of India) - Hindi Film Industry - Bollywood
Andhra Pradesh - Telugu - Telugu Film Industry - Tollywood
Tamil Nadu - Tamil - Tamil Film Industry - Kollywood
Karnataka - Kannada - Kannada Film Industry - Sandalwood

Have fun! Google to find out more funny names ;)

Yup! Been there, just last month! The temple is located in a village called 'Deshnok'. The weird part about the town was, it never had any rat epidemic or anything of that sort.
The rats never leave the temple and the history of the temple is actually a very interesting story!!

@Alex & Adrienne Crezo - The rodents are not holy. The people of Deshnok are the rodents, as in, once a person of that village dies, its believed that he/she is reincarnated as a rat in the temple. Once the rat dies, it comes back into the village born as a human. Thus helping the people of the village to be born in the same village in every life. As I mentioned, the rats are not holy, they are considered as people (in a different form). Would you consider the guy/gal next to you holy? No! But, we wouldn't accidentally kill them either.
There are also 1 or 2 White Rats in the temple, and it is believed that if you can sight the white rat its considered auspicious. And besides that, if one of the rats is killed,the person should replace it with either Solid Gold or Solid Silver depending upon his/her income. AND the gold/silver rat has some specifications for weight (its not in Kilograms thankfully.). In the 5 centuries since the temple has been built, there was never a murder of any rat ;)

You gotta talk with the Priests of the Temple (like a Father of a Church) if you need the exact details about the gold/silver thing.

A slide hammer of a different variety probably. Might've been used for driving nails into the ground, the iron clasp can be pulled back up to drive the nails deep into the ground and then it can be slid back down to hammer the nail down.

Back when facebook was still a never-thought of opinion. This used to be a giant poking device, you can poke your friends as well as cattle..

P.S: We started using a fountain pen since 4th std or 5th std, and using a fountain pen was like a puberty thing in schools. ;)

I hardly doubt that, we've been taught how to write in cursive since school. Its a compulsion in many decent schools across India.. I still write in cursive, a habit that's been force fed into my hands/brain since my 1st std

I'm thinking, a circus cannon that would shoot a firefighter through the inferno to save the people..this cannon also should probably have a power vacuum to pull them back :P

hehe.. not bad.. You got to check out the Film Titles my folks put up for dubbed movies.
For eg. Van Helsing was dubbed to "Dheyala Kota"(in Telugu) which literally translates to "Castle of Ghosts" ;) Sounds much more funnier if you know the language.
