  8. Such a beautiful place and it is being more beautiful through your lenses Indrani ji. You told the meaning of Moteora in your very first line but Now a days a serial " Chakravaerti Samrat Ashoka" is being brodcast on Colors channel and in this serial there is some part from Greek , actually Asoka's grandmother is from Greece and his own son Justin ( Asoka's father Bindusar's step brother) called her as Meteora !! so I just want to knoe there is another meaning of Meteora as Mother ?

  21. Hi Yogi Saraswat, That is an interesting observation. I was not aware of Samrat Asoka's connection to Greece. I am not sure what Meteora would have meant then. I tried searching in google but couldn't find any relevant link.

    Thanks a lot friends for the lovely comments and compliments. 🙂
