Cha’nga

Chaturanga
Chaturanga is the sacred origin of a pastime
Rekindling an ancient pastime, by Simon Jepps.

Cha’nga, pronounced “shangaah”, is a version of Chaturanga, which allows just two players to employ the classic four armies.

I invented this game because I know as much as people love Chaturanga, its inconvenience is the requirement of four players.

Creating an understanding as to how only two people can play, in turn sanctifies its misunderstood silence, revealing instead its diversity and adaptability to all walks of life.

But first a truth.

However you interpret history, there is no avoiding the fact that “Chaturanga” literally translates as “the four arms.” It comes from “chatur”, meaning four, and from “anga”, meaning arms.

Robin Hood, Father Of English Democracy

It is a strongly held belief that it is Robin Hood, the leader of a reformist movement, who brought King John to his knees in 1215, when he placed his seal upon the Magna Carta.

An Ancient Astronaut Thesis

World PyramidsDiscovered over the years, overwhelming evidence proves that many if not most ancient
civilisations all over the entire Earth, have recorded themselves that they were visited by sky or star people, who descended from the heavens on fiery or burning chariots, who told them how to live… and in some cases… who taught them mathematics, science and geometry.

I have been studying “ancient astronaut theory” since 2008. A few years ago I wrote up my own essay on the subject, including some eye-opening perspectives of my own good reasoning.

It is a seriously interesting subject and followed by many respected scientists, authors and engineers throughout the world.

So I hope you enjoy it…
