Gany mede

                                                                                                                           Ganymede,  Greek   Ganymedes,  Latin   Ganymedes,  or   Catamitus ,  in Greek legend, the son of Tros (or Laomedon), king of   Troy . Because of his unusual beauty, he was carried off either by the gods or by Zeus , disguised as an   eagle , or, according to a Cretan account, by   Minos , to serve as cupbearer. In compensation,   Zeus   gave Ganymede's father a stud of immortal horses (or a golden vine). The earliest forms of the   myth   have no erotic content, but by the 5th century   bc   it was believed that Ganymede's kidnapper had a homosexual passion for him; Ganymede's kidnapping was a popular topic on 5th-century Attic vases. The English word   catamite   was derived from the popular Latin form of his name. He was later identified with the   constellation   Aquarius .[   www.brittania .com/ebchecked/topic/Ganemade]


                                              In   Greek mythology,   Hebe   the Goddess of youth was the original cup-bearer to the   Greek Gods   of    Mount Olympus   serving them nectar and ambrosia. Hêbê is the daughter of   Zeus   and   Hera   and is shown doing her cup-bearer duties in   Homer's   Iliad :


                                             Hebe  is the corrupted form of the Tamil name Abi  . Appu in Tamil means water.  Abi  is the female form of  Appu or  Appan.   The basic composition of   Abi  = Aa+ ba where  ba is the  earth or underworld, the ocean.A  means the' great'.


                                            A   cup-bearer   was an officer of high rank in royal courts, whose duty it was to serve the drinks at the royal table. On account of the constant fear of plots and intrigues, a person must be regarded as thoroughly trustworthy to hold this position. He must guard against poison in the king's cup, and was sometimes required to swallow some of the wine before serving it. His confidential relations with the king often gave him a position of great influence.


                                          Hêbê's role of cup bearer ended when she married war hero   Heracles   who joined Hêbê amongst the Gods and Goddesses and started a family.


                                        Hêbê was then replaced by   Ganymede.                                  


                                    ,       Ganymede   (Greek,   Ganymedes ) is a   divine hero   whose homeland was   Troy.   Homer   describes Ganymede as the most beautiful of mortals. He was the son of   Tros   of Dardania, from whose name "Troy" was supposed to derive, and of  Callirrhoe. His brothers were   Ilus   and   Assaracus. In one version of the myth, he is abducted by   Zeus, in the form of an eagle, to serve as cup-bearer in   Olympus. The myth was a model for the   Greek social custom of   paiderastía , the socially acceptable erotic relationship between a man and a youth. The Latin form of the name was   Catamitus , from which the   English   word "catamite" is derived.   [en] .  


                                                  Akshayapatra   meaning   inexhaustible vessel , is an object from Hindu theology. It was a wonderful vessel given to  Yudhishthira   by the Lord   Surya, which held a never-failing supply of food to the   Pandavas   every day.


                                           When the Pandavas began their exile in the forest, Yudhishitra was despondent at his inability to feed the holy sages and others who accompanied him. At this,   Dhaumya, the priest of the Pandavas, counselled him to pray to Lord Surya. Pleased with Yudhishtira's prayers, Lord   Surya   blessed him with the Akshaya Patra, a vessel that would give unlimited food every day till    Draupadi   finished eating .[].


                              Gany mede  is the  corrupted form    of the   Tamil name  Kani Mathi. Kani  in Tamil  means ‘ riped  fruit ‘or'  the  planet' or the ‘star'-   the hanging   object  of  the Tree or the sky .  Kani  also symbolizes the breasts   of the  women hanging from the  chest .   ‘Kaai ‘means the unriped fruit  which  indicate the  breasts of  the   young girls.  The  Tamil  word  Vithai [  seed ]  denotes  the testis.   Mathi  in Tamil  means the wisdom   or the  moon .   Hence the name  Kani  mathi or  Gany mede  or  Nirai mathi  means  the ‘ full moon ‘;  ven mathi  means   milky -white   moon .   Valarmathi  means  the waxing moon ;  Saru mathi , Kanthi  mathi   , Thaen  mathi , Indu mathi   ,Vaan Mathi ,vin Mathi  and  Nan Mathi are  related proper names  in Tamil nadu. 

                                Thiru  Mathi  means the    Mathi [ moon]   with  the  Thirai,   the  clouds  as  the  veil  .   Thiru  mathi  is the  word  equivalent to the English  word  Mrs  to  denote the dignified status  of the  married   Dravidian women   who have the veil with their saree over their  fore head .  Kalai mathi means the goddess of  arts  and science .  Mathi also denotes the Ma  Athee   which means the primordial fire. 

                                          The words   Maathu [ woman]  or  Mathu[ liquor]   are    leated to the moon goddess  Mathi.    The Tamil  word  Kallu   , the  Indian  toddy  [liqor- which is milky white in color]  is the combination of  ka+la .    Ka is the sky and La  is the white  moon.  since  the   white  moon  signifies the  milk   in Dravidian lands ,  Dravidian women used to  feed their children  with ‘ pal soru' [ sweetened  milk rice]   in the night times  under the moonlight shadow  in the front yard of their house.  The ‘soma' drink  of Vedic period is  nothing  but the  intoxicating     milk namely the ‘ Kallu'[ not the hemp plant juice]  , the  milk of the  suma [ soman is the moon god],  the moon goddess  which was taken  at the end of festivals and rituals.


                                       Milk  is secreted   from the   female  cup  [the golden chalice or the  Aksaya patra or the Kumbam ], the breasts  and  it  is the   Amutham  of Tamils  and  the  Amirtha of  the Brahmins   and  the Ambrosia  of  the  west .   The  word ‘aksaya patra' of  Mani mekalai  is the combination of Aa+ ka+ Sa+ ya .  Saya devi is the moon goddess  and  also the name  Mani Mekalai denotes the moon. The   sun god Surya  giving the' aksaya patra' to the Pandava  king Yudhishtira   is  an artificial story of  the  patriarchal  society.  The name Yudhishtira is  the corrupted form of the  Tamil name  Aathi chitrai   who is nothing  but the  name of the  woman , the moon goddess. it is exactly  like the Dravidian woman Gany mede who  had  deliberately made into  the  Hellenistic  man Gany mede in Greece.  Draupadi   is  the corrupted form of the Tamil name Thee Orai pathi.   There are many  similarities between the  Hellenistic Greeks  and the Indian Vedic Brahmins  in  making the matriarchal  Dravidian stories in to the Patriarchal  themes.  Men started  equating  the wine  with the elixir  of the humankind, the  milk   and   the cups  with  the breasts.Hence  the cup bearer     always should be a woman  and  not a man.    


                                                Tides   are the rise and fall of sea levels caused by the combined effects of the gravitational forces exerted by the   Moon   and the   Sun   and the rotation of the Earth.   []


                             This makes to consider   that  the  moon is the symbol  for  water and so the moon goddess as the cup bearer. Hence Aquarius cannot be a man in a matriarchal society.      


                The  name  Troy is the corrupted form of the Tamil name Thirai.  Callirrhoe is the corrupted form of the Tamil name Kalli Orai   or  kalli  Aaraye  . Kaalam in Tamil means the  ' time' and ‘ Orai' means the planet.   Aaraye is the corrupted form of the Tamil word  Aravayee, the snake goddess  or the moon.  The word ‘orai ‘   in turn   had originated from the word Aravayee .  Ka[a]li is  the goddess and  wife of  the ka[a]lan , Siva. Kallan , the thief   is lord Siva , the sun god  who  had  stolen the heart of  Kalli  [ woman thief ], the moon goddess.


                                                                        Ganymede was abducted by  Zeus  from Mount Ida, near  Troy  in  Phrygia   .  Ganymede had been tending  sheep, a rustic or humble pursuit characteristic of a hero's boyhood before his privileged status is revealed. Zeus either sent an eagle or turned himself into an eagle to transport the youth to Mount Olympus.


                                      Eagle is the vahanam , the vehicle of the sun  god Zeus  and   naturally   he would be intersted to possess the moon goddess ,the cup bearer Kani mathi  or Gany mede. Sheep  signifies the moon or the woman  and  the  goat  signifies the  man or the sun  [zeus with horns].


                                             In the  Iliad , Zeus is said to have compensated Ganymede's father Tros by the gift of fine horses, "the same that carry the immortals",delivered by the messenger god Hermes. Tros was consoled that his son was now immortal and would be the cupbearer for the gods, a position of much distinction.


                              In Olympus, Zeus granted him eternal youth and immortality and the office of cupbearer to the gods, supplanting    Hebe Edmund Veckenstedt  associated Ganymede with the genesis of the intoxicating drink    mead , which had a traditional origin in Phrygia. All the gods were filled with joy to see the youth, except for  Hera , Zeus's consort, who regarded Ganymede as a rival for her husband's affection. Zeus later put Ganymede in the sky as the constellation Aquarius, which is associated with that of the Eagle (Aquila). A moon of Jupiter, the planet named for Zeus's Roman counterpart, was named  Ganymede  by astronomer Simon Marius.


             It is nothing to wonder about   the sun god [Zeus] has given the eternal youth and immortality to the moon goddess by throwing his light on his  lover  Gany mede  and for the similar reason  a moon of Jupiter  is named  after Gany mede. The intoxicating drink Mead   of Phrygia is the corrupted form of the Tamil word  Mathu ,the liquor.


                       Ganymede was afterwards also regarded as the  genius  of the fountains of the Nile, the life-giving and fertilizing river. Thus the divinity that distributed drink to the gods in heaven became the genius who presided over the due supply of water on earth.


               Dravidian  Gany mede was  the  Geni /wayter nymph of the  Nile river  by the side of  which the  great  Egyptian civilization  was established by the  Pharoahs , the ancient Egyptian Dravidians. The name of the river Nile is nothing  but the  name of the moon in Tamil namely' Nila' , the Kani Mathi or the Ganymede.


                         Apollodorus argued that this myth emphasized the victory of patriarchy over matriarchy.  The philosopher Plato used this myth to justify his sexual feelings towards male pupils.



                               Plato accounts for the pederastic aspect of the myth by attributing its origin to Crete, where the social custom of  paiderastía  was supposed to have originated. " He has Socrates deny that Ganymede was the "catamite" of Zeus, and say the god loved him non-sexually for his  psyche , "mind" or "soul," giving the etymology of his name as  ganu- , "taking pleasure," and  med- , "mind." Ganymede, he points out, was the only one of Zeus's lovers who was granted immortality.


                           Ganymedes was depicted in Greek vase painting as a handsome boy. In the abduction scene his attributes were usually a rooster (a lover's gift), a hoop (a boy's toy), or a lyre. When portrayed as the cup-bearer of the gods he is shown pouring nectar from a jug. In sculpture and mosaic art, on the other hand, Ganymedes usually appears with shepherd's crock and a Phrygian cap.


                   Rooster   is the symbol of the sun god , the lover of  the moon goddess , Gany mede. Hoop denotes the rolling sun [ and it's rays]   or the moon and the lyre is the instrument of the sun god.


                              The boy's name was derived from the Greek words   ganumai   "gladdening" and   mêdon   or   medeôn , "prince" or "genitals.[   www.theoi .com/Quranios/Ganymede]

                                  Medon is the corrupted form of the Tamil word   Matheeyon  , the man with wisdom ,the sun god , the ruler of the world.  Gani  in Tamil  denotes the breasts  [women]or the seeds[men] .

                                  From  Ancient Greek    ( Ganumedes ,   “meant to please”) , from         ganumai ,   “I rejoice, I am glad”)  + medos ,   “thought, intention”) .[ www.en]

                   Medos   or the  Mathi in Tamil means a  person with good thinking, or a scholar. 


                                                 The   Kanephoros,    English translation: "Basket Bearer", also known as   Canephorae ) was an honorific office given to unmarried young women in   ancient Greece, which involved the privilege of leading the procession to sacrifice at festivals; the highest honour was to lead the   pompe   at the   Panathenaic Festival. The role was given to a virgin selected from amongst the aristocratic or   Eupatrid   families of Athens whose purity and youth was thought essential to ensure a successful sacrifice. Her task was to carry a basket or   kanoun   ( ?a???? ), which contained the offering of barley or first fruits, the sacrificial knife and fillets to decorate the bull,   in procession through the city up to the altar on the acropolis .[]

                                           Kanephoros  is the corrupted form of the Tamil name Kani Porai  .  Porai means ‘white' in Tamil and so kani phoros  or Canephorae ,means the full moon or pal Nilavu in Tamil.   The cataract of the eyes  in Tamil  is called as  Kan porai .   Kan means the eyes and  porai means the white  moon  .Kanephoros[basket bearer] and  Gany mede[cup bearer]  are one and the same  Dravidian  woman  .
