There was confusion – even for over-excited Boris Johnson – this morning when Big Ben chimed at the bizarre time of 8.12am.
And as puzzled onlookers struggled to fathom the timing, Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt almost took out spectators at another event when a bell he was ringing flew off its handle.
The farcical scenes unfolded as the capital prepared to begin the ‘greatest show on earth’ tonight by welcoming in the 2012 Olympics.
The celebrations are believed to be the first time that the strike of Big Ben has been rung outside its normal schedule since February 15 1952, when it tolled every minute for 56 strokes for the funeral of King George VI. “

According to the Hindu mythology, he earliest conqueror of Okhamandal was Shri Krishna also called Ranchhodji who is supposed to be the eight incarnation of Lord Vishnu. Krishna was succeed ed by his great grandson Vajarnabh, who enjoy the reputation of having built the present temple of Dwarkanath also called Trilok Sundar .
At the time of Mohamed Gazni’s invasion of Gujarat in 1024 A.D., the costal belt was ruled by the Jethwas near Khambhalia and Okhamandal. In about 1480 .A.D., Sultan Mohamed Begdo had conquered this region. After conquest by Humayun of Gujarat , the Jams of Navanagar established the kingdom which came to be known as ‘Halar’ . The Jams claim to be descendant from Yadavs. They belong to the Jadeja Rajput race which originated from the Sammas who ruled at Nagar-Thatha in Sind and migrated to Kachchh. Jam Raval was the founder of Jamnagar and he was a descendant of Jam Hala and hence the area had been called as ‘Halar’.

Zhaalrai / Zeus
Now we know that Golu Devata , the incarnation of Bhairav devta alias GAUR BHAIRAV, an embodiment of the Lord Shri Krishna.
His father Haalrai was famous king of Gari Champawat and the only son of brave and generous predecessor raja Zhaalrai, a role model of Chand dynasty.
Now Look at Greek Olympian mythology. You will find there “Zhaarai” in form of Zeus. Zeus was father of Olympians. Now know about Zeus….
In the ancient Greek religion, Zeus (Ancient Greek Zeús; Modern Greek ( Días) is the “Father of Gods an men” who rules the Olympians of Mount Olympus (Mount Almora) as a father rules the family. He is the God of Sky and Thunder in Greek Mythology.. His Roman counterpart is Jupiter and Etruscan counterpart is Tinia. His Hindu equivalent is Indra. ( Surprisingly Hindu Mythology says that Indra was Son of Dyos)
Zeus was not worshipped by mainstream Minoans, rather in small cults that thought of him as a mortal Demigod that was eventually killed. The earliest forms of the name are the Mycenean Greek di-we and di-wo( Our word Dev?), written in Linear b syllabic script. With the apparent interchangeability of “z” and “d”, Zeus can also be Deus.
And in Germanic Mythology (Old High German language Ziu, Old Norse Tyr), together with Latin deus, d?vus and Dis (a variation of daves[), from the related noun *deiwos. To the Greeks and Romans, the god of the sky was also the supreme god. Zeus is the only deity in the Olympic Pantheon whose name has such a transparent Indo-European etymology.

Haalrai / Heracles / Hercules
Heracles ( Harakles, from Hara, ” Hera”, and Kleos, “glory”, born Alcaeus (Almora ?), was a Devine Hero in Greek Mythology, the son of Zeus and Alcmene, foster son of Amphitryon and great-grandson (and half-brother) of Persus ( Our word Porus who faught against Alexander..Porus belonged to Hari Kul Ish vansha of Mathura). He was the greatest of the Greek heroes, a paragon of masculinity, the ancestor of royal clans who claimed to be Heracleidae and a champion of the Olympian Order ( Order of Almora ?) against Cthonic monsters. In Rome and the Modern West, he is known as Hercules, with whom the later Roman Emperors, in particular Commodus ( Kumaon?)and Maximian (Marwad?), often identified themselves. The Romans adopted the Greek version of his life and works essentially unchanged, but added anecdotal detail of their own, some of it linking the hero with the geography of the Central Mediterranean. Details of his Cult were adapted to Rome as wel.
The ancient Greeks celebrated the festival of the Heracleia, which commemorated the death of Heracles, on the second day of the month of Metageitnion (which would fall in late July or early August). What is believed to be an Egyptian Temple of Heracles in the Bahariya Oasis dates to 21 BC.

Hercules is the Roman name for the Greek Demigod Heracles, who was the son of Zeus (Roman equivalent Jupiter) and the mortal Alcmene. In Classical mythology, Hercules is famous for his strength and for his numerous far-ranging adventures.
The Romans adapted the Greek hero’s iconography and myths for their literature and art under the name Hercules. In later Western art and literature and in Popular Culture, Hercules is more commonly used than Heracles as the name of the hero. This article provides an introduction to representations of Hercules in the later tradition.
