Rama is considered to be the se7enth avatar of Vishnu in Hinduism, and a king of Ayodhya in ancient Indian Puranas. He was born in Suryavansha (Ikshvaku Vansh) on January 10,later known as Raghuvnsha after king Raghu. Based on Puranic genealogy, Rama is believed by Hindus to have lived around 5000 B.C.E. in the second Yuga called Treta Yuga, 2 millennia before Krishna who was born towards the end of Dwapara Yuga. Rama is traditionally considered to have appeared in the last quarter of Treta Yuga..Dan (Hebrew: דן‎), is a city mentioned in the Bible, described as the northernmost city of the Kingdom of Israel, belonging to the Tribe of Dan..Lam for the muladhara (earth) chakra located in the perineum area..Chant the sound LAM.

Idi Amin Dada (c. 1925 – 16 August 2003) was the 3rd President of Uganda from 1971 to 1979. Amin joined the British colonial regiment, the King's African Rifles in 1946, serving in Somalia, Kenya and Uganda. Eventually, Amin held the rank of major general in the post-colonial Ugandan Army and became its commander before seizing power in the military coup of January 1971, deposing Milton Obote...On 19 July 2003, one of Amin's wives, Madina, reported that he was in a coma and near death at the King Faisal Specialist Hospital and Research Centre in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, from kidney failure.. She pleaded with the Ugandan President, Yoweri Museveni, to allow him to return to Uganda for the remainder of his life. Museveni replied that Amin would have to "answer for his sins the moment he was brought back".. Amin's family decided to disconnect life support and Amin died at the hospital in Jeddah on 16 August 2003 and was buried in Ruwais Cemetery in Jeddah in a simple grave without any fanfare He later promoted himself to field marshal while he was the head of state..Dissent within Uganda and Amin's attempt to annex the Kagera province of Tanzania in 1978 led to the Uganda–Tanzania War and the demise of his 8-year regime, leading Amin to flee into exile to Libya and Saudi Arabia, where he lived until his death on 16 August 2003.. After the United Kingdom broke off all diplomatic relations with his regime in 1977, Amin declared he had defeated the British and conferred on himself the decoration of CBE (Conqueror of the British Empire). His full self-bestowed title ultimately became: "His Excellency, President for Life, Field Marshal Al Hadji Doctor Idi Amin Dada, VC, DSO, MC, Lord of All the Beasts of the Earth and Fishes of the Seas and Conqueror of the British Empire in Africa in General and Uganda in Particular", in addition to his officially stated claim of being the uncrowned King of Scotland.. He was not a recipient of a Distinguished Service Order (DSO) or a Military Cross (MC).. He conferred a doctorate of law on himself from Makerere University, as well as the Victorious Cross (VC), a medal made to emulate the British Victoria Cross..Other unconfirmed sources state Amin's year of birth from as early as 1923 to as late as 1928.. According to Fred Guweddeko, a researcher at Makerere University, Idi Amin was the son of Andreas Nyabire (1889–1976). Nyabire, a member of the Kakwa ethnic group, converted from Roman Catholicism to Islam in 1910 and changed his name to Amin Dada.. He named his first-born son after himself. Abandoned by his father at a young age, Idi Amin grew up with his mother's family in a rural farming town in northwestern Uganda. Guweddeko states that Amin's mother was called Assa Aatte (1904–1970), an ethnic Lugbara and a traditional herbalist who treated members of Buganda royalty, among others.. Amin joined an Islamic school in Bombo in 1941.. After a few years, he left school with nothing more than a 4th grade English-language education and did odd jobs before being recruited to the army by a British colonial army officer.. On 4 August 1972, Amin issued a decree ordering the expulsion of the 60,000 Asians who were not Ugandan citizens (most of them held British passports).. This was later amended to include all 80,000 Asians, except for professionals, such as doctors, lawyers, and teachers.. A plurality of the Asians with British passports, around 30,000, emigrated to the UK. Others went to Australia, Canada, India, Kenya, Pakistan, Sweden, Tanzania, and the U.S..Amin expropriated businesses and properties belonging to the Asians and handed them over to his supporters. The businesses were mismanaged, and industries collapsed from lack of maintenance..Following the expulsion of Ugandan Asians in 1972, most of whom were of Indian descent, India severed diplomatic relations with Uganda. The same year, as part of his "EConomic War", Amin broke diplomatic ties with the UK and nationalised 85 British-owned businesses.In June 1976, Amin allowed an Air France airliner from Tel Aviv to Paris hijacked by 2 members of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine – External Operations (PFLP-EO) and 2 members of the German Revolution√§re Zellen to land at Entebbe Airport..Amin retaliated against the attempted invasion by Ugandan exiles in 1972 by purging the army of Obote supporters, predominantly those from the Acholi and Lango ethnic groups..In July 1971, Lango and Acholi soldiers were massacred in the Jinja and Mbarara Barracks, and by early 1972, some 5,000 Acholi and Lango soldiers, and at least twice as many civilians, had disappeared..The victims soon came to include members of other ethnic groups, religious leaders, journalists, artists, senior bureaucrats, judges, lawyers, students and intellectuals, criminal suspects, and foreign nationals. In this atmosphere of violence, many other people were killed for criminal motives or simply at will.. Bodies were often dumped into the River Nile... its a sheep dog... lets keep going..Haven't you heard- Last night...6 of 'EM.. All in different parts of the city, all mutilated.. He must be a real right maniac, this fella..Thanks for the ride, sir. You have lovely sheep..Boys, keep off the moors, stick to the roads..Beware the moon, D..The best to Ya...
