The construction of the tallest monument in the world started in India. The gigantic statue will represent the Indian national hero Shivaji, who lived and reigned in the eighteenth century.

According to international media, the monument will have a height of 192 meters. It will exceed 76 meters statue of Buddha from Myanmar, considered the highest in the world and will be taller than the Statue of Liberty. The cost of construction was estimated at 530 million dollars.

The monument will be built on an artificial island a few kilometers from Mumbai. Even if the statue will be worthy of the Guinness Book of Records, many people have criticized the project. They believe that their country so poor, does not require such expenditures.

About me

    I'm working on a theory for some time in trying to combine science with religion, looking for an answer to the question 
"What is the purpose of life in Creation?  Is it possible for life to be an unintended consequence of our Universe?

Finally due to space,science and exploration throughout the Universe we got everyone to agree with the fact that we are not the only planet with life.  My blog is full of interesting articles about Creation of the Universe with all his laws,  NASA's Missions,  History,   Science,  Physics, Health, Nature, Ancient origins and Culture.
