Hinduism has two major roots. The more familiar is the religion brought to South Asia in the second millennium BCE by speakers of Aryan or Indo-Iranian languages, a branch of the Indo-European language family. Another, more enigmatic, root is the Indus civilization of the third millennium BCE, which left behind exquisitely carved seals and thousands of short inscriptions in a long-forgotten. The year of is the Year of the Golden Rat, blessing us with the Lap Chun’s presence. This promises an excellent new cycle for beginning new projects, starting a new business or putting forth new ideas. The wealth tree featured here is empowered with all wealth symbols such as gold ingots and jewels and a wealth-sprouting mongoose, all indicating a renewal of prosperity luck.

Reviewed in the United States on J From the author of The Quartzsite Trip. The Year Of The Mongoose is a slice of history.

You see history in the form of the inner workings of a fictional television network. The wheeling, dealing, backstabbing, secret deals, and of course, the casting couch, are here in all of their glory.5/5(1).

A well-known fictional mongoose is Rikki-Tikki-Tavi, who appears in a short story of the same title in The Jungle Book () by Rudyard Kipling.

In this tale set in India, the young mongoose saves his family from a krait and from Nag and Nagaina, two cobras. The story was later made into several films and a song by Donovan, among other : Mammalia.

The Mongoose Deception is the 6th book in the C. Floyd Mysteries, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order. Boulders and rocks the size of small cars, free from a thirty-four-year encumbrance of concrete, rebar, and tile, dribbled down onto the interstate until finally the horn blasts and sirens stopped and the sound of rushing /5(3).

Rikki Tikki Backstory. So, this morning I found Rikki Tikki Tavi's Garden a reference to the childrens book where a mongoose defeats an evil pair of snakes.

Nearly fifty years span the first and last books in this most remarkably long-lived of fantasy series, and it all began with A Wizard of Earthsea way back in Set in the titular archipelago, the story centres on a young shepherd called Ged who discovers he has an aptitude for magic.

Traditionally, Traveller books have always gravitated towards one of two areas within the Third Imperium – either the Solomani Rim or, far more commonly, the Spinward Marches.

Now, both will be represented in the new Traveller but, to kick things off, we fancied it was time for a change so we are heading Rimward – to the Trojan Reach. Older Mongoose bikes made through the ’s had pretty easy serial numbers.

Generally the year and month of build was stamped as the first part of the serial number. For example my Mongoose Expert has a serial number M6EG The first number (6) relates to the year –   will be a consolidation year of sorts for Mongoose – we want to put the cap on every outstanding project (such as all those Traveller books and Victory at Sea) but, at the same time, start the process of the next great wave – such as the Fifth Frontier War which, collectively, is the biggest project we have attempted in Traveller (and we already have had some pretty large ones under our belt!).

Harking back to the original release of Traveller in the 70's, the Little Black Books from Mongoose bring the latest version of Traveller to your gaming table in a handy and collectible pocket size. Starting off with some extra tips and options for the speculative trading every Traveller player is familiar with, Merchant Prince adds a whole new.
