World Yoga Day: Yoga is not just an asana

World Yoga Day: Yoga is not just an asana


It is said in Ayurveda that there is no other alternative to yoga to attain virtue in life. The full benefits of yoga can be reaped through regular practice and asceticism. Our sages considered the body to be a subtle model of the universe. To understand and experience its pervasiveness, one must know the center of power within the body. The sages call this center of power 'Chakra'.

The history of the spoon found in Egypt, how did it develop in the world?

The history of the spoon found in Egypt, how did it develop in the world?


Today, the use of spoons has become mandatory in every human activity. Even in the villages now, they have stopped adding salt to the vegetables by hand. Nowadays, Karchuli has stopped extracting ghee oil. Nowadays, all these utensils have been replaced by spoons. Not only this, by humanizing the spoon, the tendency of people is also interpreted as spoon tendency nowadays.



The history of Chamcha has always been associated only with rich and prosperous families. At one time it was customary in Europe to keep it at home only for show. Even today, many people continue to embrace this culture, even though they seem to be rich and newly rich. So the history of the spoon has always evolved as a tool around the rich.


Archaeological history shows that with the beginning of human civilization, people began to use a variety of tools. As people began to adopt a collective lifestyle and live in a family structure, they started using different utensils. But when did the spoon-eating system, which is emerging as today's culture, start with the spoon system? Where did the development come from?


In Nepali culture, not everyone has adopted the method of eating food with a spoon at the dining table. However, some urban families have made this culture a matter of necessity. Due to this, it can be assumed that the practice of eating food with a spoon has started to develop in Nepali culture. But where did the spoon come from? It is worthwhile to look at its international study.


Historical tools


Looking back at history, pottery has been around since time immemorial. The history of wooden tools is also long. Then there is the history of metal tools. It was from this soil that various shapes were developed. Before the development of pottery from clay, in the Stone Age, people used to feed themselves by hunting with stone weapons. But with the development of civilization, structures like earthen jars, water containers, drinking glasses, cooking utensils were developed. Looking at the list of historical materials in this way, it is not seen that any spoon-sized pottery has been used in India every year. But in the case of Egyptian civilization, such devices have been in use since the beginning of the Vedic period.


After reaching the invention of metallurgy through simple sharp rocks, clay tools, wood tools, the spoon has now succeeded in proving itself as the best tool for cooking food. Despite its simple design and other devices of semicircular shape, such a culture has not been developed in Eastern culture in ancient times. But now the spoon is in the modern way of preparing and serving food


Various international studies have shown that there are now more than 50 types of spoons in circulation around the world. This device is used for many specific tasks in food and other activities around the world.


The history of the spoon is long and enjoyable. No one knows when and where the first spoon was used. But archaeological finds date back to BC. Some decorative and religious spoons have been found to have been used in the area of ​​1000 years. The ancient spoons were made of wood, slate, and ivory. The spoons used by the Egyptian priests were made in unique designs. Evidence has been found that spoons were made of bronze and silver in the days of ancient Greece and the Roman Empire.


Until medieval Europe, cow horns, wood, bronze, and pottery were used to make spoons out of clay. It was only in the 15th century that wooden spoons began to replace the more durable metal spoons. Such spoons were widely used by the upper classes in the 15th century.


The earliest mention of a spoon in England was in 1259 as a wardrobe description of King Edward I. In medieval times, spoons were used not as food but as a symbol of wealth and power. Each of the kings of England used the method of anointing with a special spoon after the coronation. It finally took on a modern look by the end of the 18th century.


In modern times, the spoon is used a lot in our food consumption. It was first used only for the consumption of liquids or semi-liquids. But later it works as a perfect tool. Nowadays it is also used in modern kitchenware and all kinds of food. That is why in Nepali, a person who cures everyone is called a spoon.


Below are some examples of spoon designs that people use now.


Caviar Spoon - Caviar means fish egg. Such spoons were made of pearls, gold, animal horns, and wood so that the dish would change its taste when eaten.


Teaspoon - a little smaller than a teaspoon.


Dessert Spoon - This is a medium-sized spoon. It tends to be larger than a teaspoon and smaller than a food spoon. Besides, many types of spoons are used around the world.
