Ok Tata Bye Bye

I'm so excited.

I've been shortlisted for a travel contest. Which involves travelling
& Blogging. Hardly ever been selected for anything earlier :)

Check out the contest and my profile on
http://www.oktatabyebye.com
http://www.oktatabyebye.com/Krishma.asp

(Yes they have spelt my name wrong in the link, trying to get them to correct it)

The final selection is next week. I'm not sure how they will do it.
But have a vague feeling that they may do so based on popularity of
the contestant & ability to draw viewers.

Requesting you to please view my profile & drop me a comment, even if
its just to say "All the best, Kim" or "Don't think u should go" But
please comment.

Hope there's a lot of you looking for something to do on a slow Friday
afternoon.

Please, please, pretty please. :)

Kim

Nizam's jewels on show at Salar Jung

The Salar Jung Museum has loaned the Nizams jewels from the RBI for 2 months and put them on display.

The collection includes the dazzling Jacob Diamond, valued today at 400crore by the Indian Government & worth much more abroad. The Jacob was mined in South Africa weighing 457 carats, the second largest diamond in the world. It was subsequently cut in Amsterdam & currently weighs 184.5 carats.

Though only a tenth of the Nizams jewels have been procured by the Indian Government, (after 20 years of negotiations, the rest of the collection has been smuggled out of the country or melted or cut down) the present collectiopn in terms of gem weight is mind boggling. There are over 25000 diamonds weighing in excess of over 12000 carats, more than 2000 emeralds weighing over 10,000 carats & pearls exceeding over 40,000 chows And this is just a part of the collection......
