A Delightful Dolphin Show at National Aquarium in Baltimore, MI.

During our visit to Baltimore National Aquarium we got the opportunity to watch the delightful Dolphin show at the aquarium which they called 'Play'.

After moving around the exhibits of the aquarium, we walked through the covered bridge to the Dolphin show. The show was of half an hour duration. This is a ticketed show, so we took the tickets and were seated ourselves at a comfortable place in the gallery. Before the show started, there a show on the big TV, about the aquatic life and other important information. As the show was going on the TV, slowly the waters in front moved. There was a big applause in the audience who shouted in excitement on seeing the bottle nosed dolphin doing some feats in the water.
One of the aquarium staffs started giving a brief info on the show. While the audience were busy taking snaps and videos of the lively show.

And the pretty dolphins were busy showing their wonderful talent to the spectators who were getting overwhelmed on seeing those.
Suddenly there was music all around and the trainers entered with claps. Again there was huge applause from the spectators as the dolphins started performing jumps / feats.
The cute lively dolphins started playing with the balls, jumping in the waters.
And there was huge applause from the audience. I really enjoyed each and every act of the dolphins along with my 3 years old daughter (now she is 7). One of the most enjoyed item, you can see the below pic, was the cute dolphin imitating one of the trainers on shore.
and in waters. The show was captivating and worth watching.
The spell bounding performance of the dolphins who was imitating its trainer.

Dolphin show at National Aquarium in Baltimore was a delightful show and was enjoyed the most.

How To Perform Aksharabhyasam At Home And Basar temple

Aksharabhyasam is a traditional religious function of Hindus. 'Akshara' means letters (alphabets) in Sanskrit and 'abhyasam' means practice. It is also known as 'Vidyaarambham' which literally means starting of education. In this function a child is given initiation for writing / education. With this function the child is ready to receive formal education in a school. The function is performed in different ways in different regions of India.

In the olden days, aksharabhyasam was performed when the child was 5 years old. But presently because of early education at Kindergarten level, parents perform this ceremony when the child is in his 3rd year i.e. after the child completes 2 years. Normally there is a belief that aksharabhyasam should not be performed after the child completes 3 years and is in its 4th year.

The function can be performed either in a temple or at home.
