Business I Culture I Travel I Life & Living
My name is Krishna Kanth (KK). Due to my stay in different parts of India in my childhood – Im almost very thoroughly conversant with India. India is the 7th largest country on earth and nearly a third of the size of China / US / Canada and a sixth of the size of Russia. It is culturally very diverse.
I lived many years in China & Far East Asia and so had thoroughly seen, been, understand and appreciate and travelled most of China and the far east and exprienced the culture – just like a local and also learnt Mandarin
Also I was extremely fascinated with the Chinese, Japanese and Far East Asian, South & South east Asian cultures – I went around discovering, observing, understanding and assimilating most of Asia (east of India) on trains, planes in extreme detail – for example from understanding Hinduism, Confuciusm to Teravada Buddhism in Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar, Sri Lanka to Mahayana Buddhism in China, Japan, Korea to Tibetan Budddhism in Tibet / India / Bhutan / Nepal to cultural experiences like ´Bian Lian´ – the face changing dramatic art of Sichuan opera to tea cultures in China / Japan / Korea to amazing temples & cultures in Thailand / Myanmar / Cambodia. It is a real unique experience ! It is amazing !
Studying, Working and living in Asia and Europe gave me the opportunity to travel extensively and know & discover many areas of the world almost like a local !
Similarly understanding Europe and Middle East Asia gave me deep insights into histories and cultures and insights and understanding of Christianity to Judaism to Islam and visiting the amazing and outstanding Basilicas, Cathederals, Mosques and synagogues. It is truly amazing experience again. Im always learning ! it never stops !
I can speak a few Indian languages (Telugu, Hindi, Tamil) and few non Indian origin languages (English, Chinese (Mandarin), Swedish & Spanish for Culture & salsa) and deep interest in latin salsa & latin music and Italian opera arias apart from deep interest in culture. My connection to Latin America and Caribbean are the Geography / high altitude airports and habitations to Latin Music, salsa music and culture ! It is amazing again !
I have extensively travelled across many parts of the world in trains, planes, cruises and also for example did many pre-inaugurals of cruises starting with the world¨s largest, latest & best cruise ships when they are out straight from the ship yards and sea trails to trains like the world¨s fastest trains in China like Maglev (431 KMPH covering 30.5 KM in 7+ minutes), Hexie Hao, Fuxing Hao (fastest adhesion railway on earth 300-400 KMPH) to Nozomi 700 series super express shinkansen in Japan to Frecciarossa in Italy to the world¨s highest train in Tibet (QingZang Railway Tielu) as it opened in 2006 & planes like the Airbus A350, A380
I also visited many of the man made and natural wonders and superlatives across the world as well as many of the UNESCO world heritage sites and experienced some of the UNESCO intangible cultural heritage items ! For example I had seen almost all the UNESCO listed heritage sites in China, Switzerland etc. – China has the world´s largest collection of UNESCO sites in the world along with ITALY at 55 sites each followed by Spain (48).
By now I had also visited and covered many of the holiest sites & shrines across across some of the major faiths / religious adherances and cultures like Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Sikhism, Christianity, Islam, Confuciuanism, Taoism. Many of those wonders are presented in this portal
if I have money and time – I would love to travel and discover the world and so obviously love Planes, Trains, Cruises, engineering & Infrastructure, culture across the world
I have deep passion for discovering people, places and cultures across the world and with a deep understanding and specialization of some of the geographical, business, cultural & travel aspects of the world and this knowledge portal helps share them with you anytime, anywhere on any network connected communication or computing device

General style and pattern of the feature Presentation in this Knowledge & experience portal
The general pattern and style is description and illustrations using a combination of PHOTOS, VIDEOS, TEXT with factual details to describe a static or a dynamic/moving WONDER OF THE WORLD
A WONDER in this knowledge portal could be a natural / man made place, a monument, a holy place or place with religious significance / holiest site, a cultural icon, a structure, an engineering / infrastructural marvel or masterpiece, a superlative, a dynamic or moving (Trains, Planes, Cruises, ferries, aerial cable cars) or natural wonder or anything that appears in this webportal
Almost every article generally has two parts – the EXPERIENCE portion & the KNOWLEDGE portion usually with the EXPERIENCE portion first followed by the KNOWLEDGE portion.
- The EXPERIENCE portion covers PHOTOS, VIDEOS showing spectacular video / dynamic views from multiple angles / ground / air or useful charts / maps / documentation etc. that i gathered as part of my deep delve excursions to these places to compliment & supplement
- The KNOWLEDGE part of the presentation is the content part presented in a very simple pedagogic manner sometimes with catechism pattern (question answer) starting with simple questions like WHAT, WHY, WHEN , HOW, WHERE, WHO etc. so that you can easily grasp the wonder as well as experience it
Please be a bit patient if the micro videos in some of the articles do not load in a flash especially immediately in smart phones sometimes – they might take a few seconds – we are still in the era of 4G – 5G is coming soon !
Some salient features in this Knowledge portal – Micro Videos covering most of the specialities, uniqueness, differences of the WONDER presented in the portal
- I only appear in some of the photos and some feature photos of an article
- The videos are mostly free of any people including me so as to solely focus on the item and aim to be distraction free and focus on the experience
- Wherever the wonder seemed extremely big – multiple articles have been written and named as part 1,2,3,4 etc.
- The videos are micro videos many of them shot in 4K resolution (the highest resolution currently available in cameras) – most of them usually run for a few seconds detailing each aspect of the wonder presented in that article
- They have been meticulously shot and anchored to the article to enable appreciate each aspect of the wonder
- Many latest technologies and techniques like aerial views from aeroplanes, helicopters, drones have been incorporated into the article presentation
- Many times – it has been very extremely difficult, risky and a lot of hardwork to accomplish these videos that just run for a few seconds – but it is worth it as they help describe the WONDERS of the WORLD created either by man or nature in unparalleled detail
- So I request you to please go through these articles on the WONDERS of the world and gain experience & knowledge – finally any experience is a memory and memory is a knowledge !
It is Overwhelming ! How can one person singly know so much or present so many details about the world ?
It is just simply a man´s curiosity to know, pure passion & obsession and appreciation towards people, places, cultures & wonders to did deep into each of these greatest (especially man made) wonders on earth ! nothing else !
Remember – I did not create any of these wonders that appear in the portal – I just experienced them and Im presenting the knowledge related to them by way of photos, videos, text etc.
Initially it might seem overwhelming and dismiss this knowledge portal as just a self promotional & propoganda focussed personal album & blog. It is not at all this !
