Many people are curious about the mummy of Amenhotep I, the famous Pharaoh of Egypt. Although the mummy was discovered in 181, it has not been unearthed for so long. Archaeologists have not unearthed the mummy for so long in an attempt to preserve it properly. But researchers did not sit idly by. Researchers at Cairo University in Egypt have unveiled the mystery of the pharaoh’s mummy using advanced digital 3G technology. In this way, they have been able to bring out the unknown information of the mummy. This is stated in a report of the news agency AFP.
Sahar Selim, a professor of radiology at Cairo University in Egypt, and Zahi Hawass, a former antiquities minister, led the study, the report said. They digitally ‘open’ the mummy. The mask worn during the mummy’s funeral remains intact.
According to the Egyptian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, the reign of Pharaoh Amenhotep I is believed to have lasted from 1525 to 1504 BC. A tomography scan shows that Amethotep I conducted several military operations during his 21-year reign. He died of his injuries at the age of 35. He was mummified with two arms crossed and the brain was not removed from his skull while mummifying.
A statement from Egypt’s Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities said Selim and Hawass digitally unveiled the first Amenhotep mummy in a safe and secure way without any touch, using advanced X-ray technology, computed tomography (CT) scanning, as well as advanced computer software programs. It contains much information about the face of King Amenhotep I for the first time in Egyptian research, his age, health status, unique mummy making method and recovery. Archaeologists are still struggling to gather enough evidence before reaching the final conclusions about the location of the mummy.
India’s central government has given the Kashmir Valley political parties another chance to form an alliance after proposing a reshuffle of assembly seats. Every party in the valley has come out against the housing conference organized by the government. Even the so-called separatist Hurriyat Conference has called for international intervention.
The housing conference was held in Jammu last Monday and Tuesday. The conference was inaugurated by Jammu and Kashmir Lieutenant Governor Manoj Sinha. Officially, 39 agreements were signed at the conference. If these are implemented, Rs 16,300 crore will be invested in various housing projects. Of these, 19 are civic housing, 6 are commercial and 4 are hotel projects. In the remaining projects, cinema and entertainment centers will be set up without any infrastructure.
The lieutenant governor said that as the government moves forward, the amount of investment proposals in the union territory by March next year will be Rs 60,000 crore. Already, proposals for investment of Rs 44,000 crore have been received in various fields.
The lieutenant governor said a similar conference would be held in Srinagar in the coming days.
All the political parties in the valley have come out against this initiative of the central government. The commission set up to rearrange the seats in the assembly had earlier proposed six more seats in Jammu and one in the Valley. As a result, the total number of seats in Jammu will be 43 and in the Valley 48.
The proposal has been opposed by the five-party alliance Gupkar Alliance, the People’s Conference, the People’s Movement and even the BJP-affiliated AAP. This time everyone has united against the housing conference. They have strongly opposed the initiative. The Hurriyat Conference has called for international intervention. Hurriyat leader Mirwaiz Umer Farooq has issued a statement saying that the central government is trying to change the demographics of Muslim-majority Jammu and Kashmir through one undemocratic decision after another. The ruling party is using Jammu and Kashmir for its electoral success.
