after rain...

ഒരു മഴ കാഴ്ച..
പെരുമഴ..തീര്‍ന്നതില്‍..ഖേതിച്ചു ഞാന്‍...
വാതില്‍ ചാരി നില്കവേ...
കണ്ടൊരു കാഴ്ചയും...
... പകര്‍ത്തി ഞാനെന്‍ ക്യാമറ കണ്ണുകളില്‍...
മഴ തോര്‍ന്നതില്‍ ദുക്കമുണ്ടതിനും
കാണാം ഇതളുകള്‍ കരയുന്ന-

old badiya masjidh at UAE .

It is not sure when the mosque was constructed and because the mud and stone built structure uses no wood, its exact date of construction is unknown as radiocarbon dating is not possible for structures like this. It is estimated to date to the 15th century, however some estimates place the building's age a thousand years before the arrival of Islam in UAE. The site was investigated by the archaeological center of Fujairah in co-operation with the Australian, University of Sydney from 1997-98.and Fujairah Archaeology and Heritage Department came up with the conclusion that the mosque was believed to be built in 1446 AD, along with the two watch towers overlooking the mosque and the village.

Falconry is the upkeep of falcons. It is a very valued tradition in the UAE. Falconry is a sport that came to UAE many years ago. Poor people and rich people enjoyed it. It was a big part of their life in the desert. People think that it came by the muslim Arabs who went to Byzantine and Persia. The falcon is known as the Saqer. It is very loved by the people because of its beauty and lovely eyes. H.H. Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan Al Nahyan loves falcons. Falconry is his favourite sport. He says “ falconry is a port that teaches endurance, strength, and patience.” The two main species used for hunting in the UAE are the Saqr falcons (Falco Cherruq) which are brought from other Middle Eastern countries and the Peregrine (Falco Peregrinus) The Saqr is the most popular because it is good for desert hawking. The female Saqr (Al Hurr), which is larger and more powerful is the one which is used more than the male (Garmoush). The female Peregrine (Shahin or Bahri Shahin) is also thought to be better than the male (Shahin Tiba) for hunting purposes.
