Today's images present stories depicted on pillars from 3 countries. The first image is of Vienna (Austria) cathedral built in 1726 that shows the life of St Karl and other Christian saints. The second image is from Jorhat (Assam, India) with a column built in 2000 that depicts local life and the freedom fighters. The third image is from Rome (Italy) with the two thousand years old pillar made for emperor Trajan showing his victory in a war. 

आज की तस्वीरों में 3 विभिन्न देशों में खम्बों पर बनी कहानियाँ हैं. पहली तस्वीर सन् 1726 में बना वियेना (आस्ट्रिया) का केथेड्रल है जिसमें खम्बे में केथेड्रल के संत कार्ल तथा अन्य ईसाई संतों का जीवन दिखाया गया है. दूसरी तस्वीर जोरहाट (असम, भारत) से है जिसमें सन् 2000 में बने खम्बे पर स्थानीय जीवन तथा स्वतंत्रता सैनानियों को दिखाया गया है. तीसरी तस्वीर रोम (इटली) से है जिसमें करीब दो हज़ार वर्ष पुराने रोमन सम्राट त्राजन के समय के बना खम्बा है, जो उनकी युद्ध में विजय की कथा दिखाता है.

Le immagini di oggi riguardano le storie raccontate sulle colonne da 3 paesi diversi. La prima immagine è della cattedrale di Vienna (Austria) costruita nel 1834 dove la colonna presenta la vita di San Carlo e altri santi cristiani. La seconda immagine è da Jorhat (Assam, India) con la vita locale e i partigiani per l'indipendenza dell'India. La terza immagine è da Roma (Italia) con la colonna di Traiano che ha circa due mila anni, che presenta la sua vittoria in una guerra.

    1. Thanks Shreeja. When we did not have films or video, these story-pillars recorded the historical events, though probably they told biased hstories from the point of view of the winners. Anyway, they do have so much tell!
