The takarabune of Maritime Odisha that sailed into Indonesia


Tomorrow is celebrated in Odisha as “Kartik-a Purnim-a” .. It commemorates the erstwhile tradition of Odia civilization from the milenia who used to sail to Java/Sumatra/Bali (Indonesia) centuries ago. [YES the Odia takarahune = 宝船 ]

If I am waking by the morning 2 am here, so there is a great chance that I will be waking, I will take a picture of a “ship” anchored in my house for this festival and will be sailed tomorrow morning (called hune in Japanese which is why bune/hune in takarabune, takara is pearl. The sailors used to bring ship loads of pearl/wealth.)

I believe they might have gone as far as Japan b/cos the sailors were known as “sadaba pua” {hung up? pua is a variation of boy SO the knowledge we have now about this terminology might have come through Roman transLIT/LAT It literally means sailor folks , only men hence boys} I think the sadaba is saraba which is Japanese to mean “see off or farewel” Hence the farewel men, those who sail away to lands far away and may never return. The sa of Japanese which means go/move/travel has become Indian ja to mean exactly same. the s/j alternation is quite well known which is why su/zu are the same character in Hiragana with slight difference accommodated by strokes sa=さ, za=ざ. If you do this upside down (180 degree) its Devanagari sa स  (left part). Also check out Hindi za ज its a 90 degree rotation. Now you still think Devanagri and Sanskrit Bullshit? Its the 6th example I am giving you where Hiragana has become devanagari letter. lo-and-behold I also gave you evidence of how Hiragana and Kanji are exactly same since 6th century AD until this present day. If Indian languages are so original then why would the alphabets change? As shown in some charts 10 times. And where is the evidence of TOTAL alphabet? that simply means there were other base languages which were present in ancient times. The alphabets went through many mixing b/cos there never was 1 culture and they get mixed up from Kingdoms to Kingdoms through various times. The resent day alphabets are all only a rendering in moderner times. (So it might have begun few centuries earlier to unify and then gradually picked up and never completed until this day when I am seeing that they have a different origin. eg the so called Indo-European mixing is mostly a modern phenomena b/cos of Roman transLIT mixing sometimes purposefully and sometimes naturally b/cos of complexity. But slight beginning might have occurred even 1500 yrs ago. But India never had 1 set of alphabet. We should be proud of this. That India is an unique and glorious culture far from how its represented by fascists or communists or Gandhians. Its a very unique mix. But apart from Indo-Europian mixing of languages (might have greatly pushed due to imperialism) the actual basis is Asiatic. Which is why I discovered Chinese/Japanese mixing into Indian languages. Infact apart from the trickeries modern linguists (or charlatans?) have played on Indian language to create a moderner myth and nationalism we are actually far different. Hence Hinduism is in danger from Hinduists actually b/cos they take us away from our roots. Our roots might actually be far more Asiatic than is presently recognized. And that makes sense as well. B/cos the linguists and scholars might have sensed such linkages from past (that we are actually speaking Chinese b/cos our forefathers and great lineage was Chinese of those times, eg see my article on Lingaraj temple of why the Indian great temples of Sun dynasty were Chinese Yang dynasty and the exact same word for fire is present in Indian/Japanese/Chinese. ) Also by sensing such linkages our scholars thought of formulating Indian languages in such line. Hence the new so-called Sanscrit b/cos that way our nationalistic sentiments are not hurt. Which is bullish b/cos our sentiments are actually hurt when our true forefathers are denied b/cos they happen to be Chinese or Hun or this or that. We must accept our true heritage. below is the evidence of what I found about the continuity of Chinese/Japanese alphabet since 6th century.

I checked the oldest “surviving” manuscript in Japan from 6th century AD (called Hokke Gisho) and these are the language characters Hiragana and Kanji) that are exactly same since then, no change so all letters should be same or slightly changed, what a modern system)  る 、小、 氵+去、 行 (just a quick browse gave me this)
