The Snake Gods Of Hinduism

The Snake Gods are adorned and celebrated in all the Hindu temples of the world. From many centuries the Snake Gods have been given prominence in the life of most of the Hindu people. The Female Snake God is called as Nagarani and the Male God as Nagarajan.and idols of both Gods are placed in all the major Hindu temples of India. In some villages of South India, they have been adorned in the live form and their shelter, termite nest, is also kept in many temples of the country. Pariticularly on Fridays they are given raw eggs and milk. The devotees of them put the raw eggs and the cup of milk nearby their shelter and if the snakes are really living there, they will come out in night times to drink the eggs and milk.

Lord Shiva , The Great God of Hinduism, is wearing the God Nagarajan on his neck and Lord Krishna has made the Snake God Adhisheshan as His bed in His home.

The Hindu people are believing that Snake Gods are associated with wealth and healthy life and they will act as great securities when the people meet difficulties in their life. It is also believed that Snake Gods are having separate world and Shri Nagarajan and Shri Nagarani are ruling that world. However The Snake Gods and other Holy Snakes are under the control of major Gods like Lord Shiva and Lord Krishna.

Lord Rahu

Lord Ketu

Shri Rahu and Shri Ketu are also the Great Snake Gods as well as planetry deities of Hinduism. They both get prominence next to Lord Vinayaka in all the Hindu temples. They are described as malefic planets as they are giving great tribulations to the people in case of unfavorable horoscopic positions. They are also associated with many misevents and accidents in the life of Hindu people. This is believed by the devotees that Shri Rahu is the both averter and creator of misevents and accidents in a life. So the people are fearing to face His associated time period of Rahu Kalam, Kalam means certain hours of a day. Faithful worshipping of Shri Rahu would avert any obstacle and accident in the life of the Hindu people. Shri Ketu is associated with Gnan ( Knowledge ) and gives extreme tribulations to whom found lack of Gnan and sense. It is believed in Hindu’s life that Shri Rahu is immediately killing by creating undesirable misevents and accidents and whereas the Ketu is giving great difficulties when He is not in favorable horoscopic position. But both Shri Rahu and Ketu are giving all the desirable things and events in ones life when they are in a favorable horoscopic positions.

Though these Gods are wicked and giving tribulations to the people, they are given significance and celebrated by the Hindu people as almost equal to Lord Krishna and Lord Shiva. To get peaceful and happy life the most of the Hindu people adorn them with great bhakthi. But some people are blaming that these Gods are the root causes for their difficulties in their life. The main thing to understand here is that these Gods are not mere responsible for the ill fate of the people. Lack of knowledge and lack of carefulness are the big reasons to the most of misevents and accidents. We have to make correct decisions in each and every part of our life to lead a happy life. When we lead a proper life, we need not blame the Gods to our misfortunes. Faithful worshipping of Shri Rahu and Shri Ketu and well planned life are showing success in all parts of our life.

nd my neighbor house members killed tat…

is tat good r bad???


Hi, what does it mean if you house is surrounded by snakes harmless ones though. My brother and sister in law’s house have found several snakes under their house and also one inside their home. is this a bad thing ?


Dear Friends,

In the Hindu tradition we worship Nags. They too are considered as Devta’s.There is a difference in the two varieties i.e, Nag and sarp. A Nag can lift its head and so in modern terminology it would be closer to a cobra or that family whereas a sarp does not lift its head. There are nine Nag’s that are important and are worshipped. These are Anant, Vasuki, Sheshnag, Padmanabh, Kambal, Shankhpal, Dhritrastra, Takshak and Kalia. These nine names are repeated early in the morning and after sun down. They are not repeated in the day as it is believed that the snakes sleep during this time. Repetition of these names removes the fear of being poisoned and gives victory in all good deeds. Repitition of these names also help people overcome Kaalsarpyog and are to be repeated for atleast one year in the morning and evening.

Whereas it is correct that our deeds(Karmas) in day to day life are important as well as information, decisions and knowledge; we should focus on them yet one cannot deny other deeds such as prayer and mantras are important as well. God in a very simple sense can be taken to be the higher mind and higher ideals in each one of us.

If you wish to prevent snakes from entering your house and harming you, one can repeat the Mantra “Maharishi Astikay Namah”. Take some water in a cup, put your finger in the cup, repeat the mantra atleast 11 times and sprinkle it around your house esp around the doors.

Snakes entering your house is not bad luck. They do invoke fear. Please do not kill them as killing a nag in the hindu tradition is believed to invoke a curse which gets transferred to each generation till one does not atone for it, from among other things, by prayer on Nag Panchmi. Try to chase it away or get a snake charmer or the forest office to tackle it.

Not all snakes are poisonous so please be compassionate.


i need some advice.

you were so damn good till that text.

What happened later ???

“Faithful worshipping of Shri Rahu and Shri Ketu and well planned life are showing success in all parts of our life.”

When the so called Gods are not responsible for our miseries, how can you attribute your success to Gods. As you said when we lead a proper life then we dont need God.

Dear Thillainadan, Thanks for coming here and your question. I hope you need not worry about the snake incidents. Your house may be located nearby their living area. However, you can pray snake gods to get rid of your confusions and worries. In my experience many people are well settled by faithful worship of these great snake gods.

M Thillinadan

Dear Dr Rathaveera,

I have no comments to add but i have a practical about snake myth. Recently snake entered my home (through the back entrance). First incident was last year a python and recently a cobra. My question is what does it signifies as far as Hindus are concerned. Some said it means bad omen and i must vacate my home. Is that true, if not how do i relate this incident with others.

Yes, Neet , You are absolutely right ! These Great Gods are so powerful to determine the fate of human beings. The accidents are creating and increasing feeling of love and humanity among the people. So They both are the Great Agents of Humanity and Love by creating accidents. Could you remember the year 2004 which is the first fourth year of 21 st cetury. We every one know well that number 4 is associated with my favorite God Shri Rahu. What happened in that year?, the chain of unforgettable tragedies. eg. At Srirangam in Trichy a fire accident happened in a marriage function in which about 70 persons killed, My favorite and Lovable actress Soundarya killed a few days after the Srirangam accident and on July 16 th Kumbakonam accident was the major one in which 94 young children killed ( here see the aggregate of 9+4 that’s also coming as 4 ). The ultimate drama by this Great God is staged on December 26 th of the same year as Tsunami in which about 1.3 lacs of people were killed from all over the world. The above said all those will create humanity feeling to any body.

Oh that’s great.

Usually people fear Shri Rahu, isn’t it? I have heard that if God Rahu is happy on some1, he makes his life wonderful and if he is angry, he makes life hell for that person.

God is eternal. God is Great.

God bless U!

Dear Neet, Happy to meet you. Thanks for your nice comments. I am faithful devotee of Shri Rahu and Shri Ketu. I have got a great change in my life after begining to worship them. Please see the beautiful picture of Shri Rahu which is worthy enough to meditate.

You have brought out a wonderful picture of snake gods. Snakes are usually feared world over for their venomous touch, however, in this country of billions — INDIA– Snakes are treated as GOD. Also, it is said that if someone dreams of a snake, it is a good omen.

GReat hub, Ratna!

Dear Dr. Prasadjain, Thank you very much for your more information about the worshipping of Naga Gods in Hinduism. Also accepting your points about Rahu and Ketu.


12 years ago from Tumkur

Dear Mr. Rathnaveera, I wish to add some points:

1 Snake is given a sacred place in hindu beliefs. Reason for this is that,it posseses all six chakrasmentioned in yoga on its backbone, as human beings posses( like-kundalini, anahatha, mooladhara, etc). For this reason we believe that it should not be killed.

2. In Indian astrology, Rahu and Kethu are treated as shady-planets.While the gfreat astrologer Varahamihira gives no place to them in his famous ‘Brihad jaathaka’ other ancient astrologers like :arashara etc, say , they have the same power of the planet of the house where they stay in the horoscope.

Many other points in your article are correct.

As World Opens From Virus, Borders Stay Shut

The world is gradually ending weeks of coronavirus confinement but one area remains firmly shut — international borders, which few governments are yet daring to open.

Weeks ahead of what would be the start of the summer tourism season in the Northern Hemisphere, billions of dollars are at risk as travelers put off plans to go abroad.

“It’s highly likely that international borders will remain partly closed until the pandemic is under control both in Europe and in the US, which is unlikely to happen at the same time,” said Luigi Scazzieri, an expert on migration and transatlantic relations at the Centre for European Reform in London.

“But even once restrictions are relaxed, we should not expect things to just go back to normal. Potential quarantines and fear are likely to curtail tourism and, to a lesser extent, business travel,” he said.

World air traffic plunged by 53 percent in March from a year earlier, the largest fall on record, according to the International Air Transport Association, the aviation industry’s trade body.

Jobs are also on the line in restaurants, hotels and other sectors that depend on tourism.

– Coordinating the reopening –

Governments around the world say the reopening of borders will be determined through coordination — a sharp contrast to the jumbled and piecemeal manner in which they were shut down.

US President Donald Trump in late January banned foreign visitors from China and in mid-March restricted travel from most of Europe.

His actions at first drew criticism for their unilateralism but much of the world has followed suit, including the European Union — leading Trump to say he was vindicated.

Travelers wear face masks at Beijing’s Daxing Airport

Trump initially issued 30-day orders but they remain in place. Likewise, the EU measures are set to expire on May 15 but could be extended month to month.

The European Commission plans first to remove restrictions on movement between its member-states — restoring a founding principle of the bloc — before opening up to the rest of the world.

India, which sealed itself off entirely, had been due to reopen air traffic on May 3 but is widely expected to extend at least partial restrictions.

Asked this week when the United States would open up, Trump said it “depends on how long it’s taken Europe to heal” — although the United States has by far the most COVID-19 deaths of any country.

“It’s tragic, but we’ll be looking at what’s happening in Europe and certainly we want to do that and they want to do it, too,” Trump said.

– ‘As fast as we can’ –

The greatest worry for governments is a new wave of contagion sweeping across borders. The SARS-CoV-2 virus was first detected in the Chinese metropolis of Wuhan before spreading to virtually all corners of the world.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the United States wanted to be “confident that people who travel in from those countries won’t create a tremendous increased risk to the United States.”

“We’re going to do it as fast as we can and do so safely,” he said of reopening borders.

In France, a diplomat said the priorities for reopening are schools and businesses followed by restaurants and cafes.

“Tourism and travel come later,” the diplomat said.

If “staycations” become the norm in this year of pandemic, some wonder whether in the next few years, citizens of wealthy countries will begin to rethink their presumption that they can travel abroad at will.

“Borders will play a much larger role in our lives,” Scazzieri said.

Some limited border movements have resumed. The Czech Republic has reopened its doors to certain commercial travelers and China has been negotiating bilateral accords with South Korea, Singapore and other countries to facilitate business travel.

The US-Mexico border remains largely open but with a ban on travel deemed non-essential, such as tourism and shopping, despite Trump’s campaign vows to seal off the neighbor with a wall.

Trump, however, has curbed immigration to the United States during the pandemic.

Airlines have already taken stringent measures to prevent contagion, with US carriers offering masks, sealing all food containers and promising vigorous sanitization between flights.

Trump has proposed temperature checks and coronavirus tests for passengers arriving in the United States.

But with tests in high demand in the United States, systematic screening is a long way off — and few expect a full return to normal until scientists find a vaccine.

The Experience Of Indians Post 9-11

As the amounts of Indians continue steadily to grow, they’re between the most successful for their educational attainment and high-income occupations. Due to the backlash of Americans to anybody of Middle Eastern or Indian descent, many South Asians were at the mercy of abuse, attacked and also killed. Inside the week after September 11, there have been 645 hate related incidents affecting people of South Asian and Middle Eastern heritage. The initial fatality was Balbir Singh Sodhi, a Sikh American who was simply attacked and killed by Frank Roque last September 11, 2001. Roque wished to “kill female” as revenge for that terrorist attacks. Even with a decade in the horrific event, many Indian-Americans still are put through bias, bullying, physical harm, harassment and racism. Most are often targeted not merely for their outward appearance but since they were wearing turban in public areas. Other incidents include racial taunts of Al-Qaeda and “get back to your country”.

4 The reason why You are Nonetheless An Newbie At Indiana Coronavirus

The Advantages Of India Capital

Reports of vandalism and racial profiling leading to not merely physical harm but additionally emotional trauma on a lot of people of South Asian descent. Despite such difficulties, many Americans of South Asian descent have increased to positions of power in government. The most known amongst them is Bobby Jindal, the governor of Louisiana and Nikki Haley, the governor of SC. They are clear types of the way the South Asian community plays an essential role within the social, political and community development of america. Even while more South Asians rise in the ranks, worries as a result of racism is still a significant issue in everyday activity for regular individuals. The increased rhetoric on immigration is a significant concern for South Asians in america moving forward. A lot of the existing population of Indians in the united kingdom are born overseas and therefore still retain major ties towards the old country. The brand new immigration policies affect future Indians seeking greener pastures in america plus the more stringent requirements may end up being daunting to numerous trying to get visas to the united states. Overall, the success of South Asians in america is tempered along with the racial issues concerning descent and traditions. Even while Indians continue steadily to integrate themselves into American society, the specter of further discrimination and difficulty is really a reality not only for today but also for many others over time. Bobby Castro may be the online editor with the NRI community, where he’s got published several articles about NRI Indians surviving in America and several other topics.

A Vaishya shouldn’t conceive this wish: I’ll never keep cattle.

Second, the kshatriya is responsable for maintaining the order on the caste system itself, understanding that a breach of caste causes social chaos and ultimate destruction. “Depends upon is kept to be able by punishment. “Following the Vaishya has recieved the sacraments and contains taken a wife, it will always be mindful of the business enterprise whereby he might subsist, that of attending cattle. A Vaishya shouldn’t conceive this wish: I’ll never keep cattle. A Vaishya got to know the respective value of gems, of pearls, of metals, of cloth manufactured from thread, of perfumes and of condiments. He should be acquainted with the way in which of sowing seeds and of the nice and bad quality of fields. “To serve the Brahmins may be the highest duty of an Shudra that leads to beatitude. A Shudra, though emancipated by his master, isn’t released from servitude, since that’s innate in him. Because the laws of Manu usually do not recognize the “untouchables” within the caste system, it creates no reference to their unique dharma. The caste system in India has designed for an extremely stable society. It hasn’t changed substancially going back two thousand years. Certainly, there’s been friction between and on the list of castes and subcastes. However, the machine itself has remained stable. This fact might be a bit surprising. How could it be a society predicated on hierarchy and privileges is not at the mercy of revolutions from the low classes? To answer this question we should go back to the religious foundations of Hindu life. The concepts of reincarnation and karma work to aid the theory that one’s circumstances in life will be the consequence of our very own actions. Our invest life isn’t accidental. All persons have the effect of where they are actually and where one is actually is fair and simply.

It was originally alien to India. The term Hindu originally meant Indian, it had been not intended specifically to designate Indian religion. Its meaning has changed profoundly as time passes as not absolutely all Indian are Hindu today. As strange as it might sound, most Hindus don’t think about themselves as practicing something called Hinduism. The phrase that a lot of closely pertains to what Westerners call Hinduism is Sanatana Dharma, that will be translated as “eternal religion”. Even this translation isn’t completely satisfying as the world religion isn’t an equal to the term Dharma. A really Unified Religion? Indigenous languages of India lack a word for what Westerners call religion. Rather that viewing themselves of participants of an religion called Hinduism, most Hindus see themselves as devotees of a specific god or goddess. In addition they see themselves as members of a specific community focused on the devotion of a particular deity. Devotion to a particular god is symbolized with the forehead markings called Tilaks. They’re among the first things Westerners think about if they hear the name Hindu.

For instance, persons who worship the god Shiva might indicate their allegiance with white horizontal stripes over the forehand. Devotees of Vishnu will make thin vertical markings to designate the thing of these faith. It could be better to think about Hinduism much less an individual religion, but as a family group of religions. Then, why utilize the word Hindu or Hinduism in any way? Within the last many years, some scholars have argued that there surely is definitely not such thing as Hinduism. Due to the great complexity of religious practices in India many have wondered when there is anything as sufficient commonality for you to utilize the word Hinduism. Scholars have suggested that the word Hinduism is really a Western construction reflecting colonial interest of imperialist nations and so ought to be discarded. I believe that the thought of Hinduism is really a useful one. It ought to be kept for no other reason than that lots of Hindus have finally adopted the word and utilize it with increasing frequency. This often happens in the annals of religions. Christians, for example, didn’t coin that term to spell it out themselves. Eventually, as others beyond your Christian movement increasingly used that name, those within the movement began to utilize it also. Today it could not be uncommon to enter a temple in India and visit a sing proclaiming “For Hindus Only”. Recently, though, this type of sign could have been unnecessary. Within the last several decades even there’s been a rise on the usage of the term Hindutva, a word translated as “Hinduness”. We might call this a growth in Hindu consciousness. It’s been associated with an upsurge of participation in Hindu festivals, rituals and pilgrimages.

Every Country’s Best Rated Movie (According To IMDB) : MapPorn

The one for Canada is literally an Indian movie with India listed as the country of Origin.

Technically, it’s listed as Indian/Canadian on IMDB, that’s why IMDB shows it in both Indian and Canadian categories. The reason it says “Canadian” is because it was funded by Sikh people from Canada.

Apparently, it’s a movie about the anti-Sikh riots in India after Sikh terrorists murdered the Indian Prime Minister in 1984. This was followed by several other acts of terrorism, including the bombing of Air India Flight 182 by Sikh terrorists, which killed 329 people. After the police went after the terrorists, many of them fled to Canada, where they settled. Now they’re funding propaganda movies and voting them to the top on IMDB.

The problem with IMDB ratings is that they’re meaningless without a vote count. Any obscure director can get fifty of his buddies to vote his movie 10/10 on IMDB, and it’ll show at the top of the rating list. The cure is to sort by popularity, then suddenly the movie drops to the bottom because nobody ever saw it except those few friends of the director.

Punjab 1984 is one of these propaganda movie. It has a very high rating, but only 1700 votes. Compare that to other Canadian movies like The Lighthouse, which has collected over 75,000 votes in only a few months, and you’ll see.

The same is actually true for real Indian movies as well. This map shows India’s highest rated movie as “Goodachari”, which the majority of Indians have never even heard of. That’s because it’s a Tamil language movie that only played in one little state. If you click “Top Rated Indian Movies” on IMDB and sort by rating, you’ll find a whole bunch of Tamil movies on top. That’s because Tamils love to go to IMDB and upvote their film industry with exaggerated ratings. But sort the same list by popularity, and suddenly most of the Tamil movies disappear.

TLDR: IMDB rankings are prone to manipulation by a small number of people. Never trust rankings unless they are supported by a high vote count. Sort by popularity to see vote counts.

WINTERSVILLE – Often times the outcome of a football game – or any sporting event for that matter – boils down to which team makes the most of its opportunities.

Indian Creek capitalized on two turnovers and turned red zone trips into points. Martins Ferry, meanwhile, left several points on the field, especially in the first half.

Add it all up and the Redskins picked up a cherished 21-7 victory against the Purple Riders (3-4).

“We’re getting better every week, taking care of the ball and not committing big penalties and I think we played harder as the game went along,” Redskins coach Andrew Connor said. “We’ve stressed winning every minute and playing until the end and our kids responded well.”

Both teams had some success moving the ball in the first half, but the game remained scoreless. Indian Creek finally broke through with 8:43 to go in the third quarter when senior tailback Trevor Fante scored from a yard out. That play was set up by an impressive run down the sideline by Brandon Fleming, which covered 47 yards.

The Purple Riders, meanwhile, struggled to get their offense going in the second half. Prior to seniors Jacob Probst and Dasyn Hores hooking up on a 28-yard touchdown with 3:12 to play in the game, the Purple Riders’ second-half offensive possessions included turning the ball over on downs, a trio of three-and-outs, two interceptions and a lost fumble.

“The game came down to us not taking advantage of opportunities we had on both sides of the ball,” Ferry coach Chas Yoder said. “Collectively, we played a little bit uncharacteristic for us and take nothing away from Indian Creek because they’re a great football team.”

While the Riders were being victimized by offensive woes, the Redskins did what they do and that was feed Fante and let him work behind a talented and fresh offensive line.

Fante carried 31 times for 155 yards and scored all three of the Redskins’ touchdowns. His second score came two plays after Ferry coughed it up on its 8.

“Trevor gets better with the more carries he gets,” Connor said. “A lot of kudos to our line, which opened up some nice holes. Trevor is a good, downhill runner.”

The Redskins iced the game away when Fleming, who did a little bit of everything, undercut a Ferry receiver and intercepted an underthrown ball. His return, coupled with a personal foul penalty on the Purple Riders, moved the ball to the 18. Fante did the rest and scored from 10 yards out with 4:20 to play.

“I think we wore them down in the second half,” Connor said. “our running game and offensive line kind of dictated where we were going. Then once we got the lead, we were able to change up some coverages and get some pass rush, which I think helped us.”

All told, the Redskins’ defense limited the Purple Riders to 266 yards of offense. Of those, 183 came through the air. Probst was 14 of 36. Chase Goff was the leading rusher with 58 yards on seven carries.

“We need to get better and see what kind of team we’re going to finish up as,” Yoder said. “Are we going to fold or are we going to step up and start playing good, sound football?”

Six People Killed After Floodwaters Swept Cars Off A Road In Indiana

A mother and her three children were among six people who drowned when two vehicles were swept off a bridge after torrential rainfall deluged Indiana, authorities said

The bodies of Felina Lewis, 35, of Laurel, Indiana, and her daughters, aged 7 and 4, were found in Sanes Creek on Friday.

The body of her 13-year-old son was found Saturday morning, said Franklin County Coroner Brian Baxter.

The children’s names were not expected to be released, he said.

The victims from the other vehicle were identified as Shawn Roberts, 47, and Burton Spurlock, 48. Both men were also Laurel residents.

Indiana Conservation Officer Josh Thomas said the creek, a tributary of the Whitewater River, quickly surged into a torrent in the region

Baxter said autopsies were pending on all six victims, but they are presumed to have drowned.

A van and a pickup truck carrying the victims were swept off a roadway into Sanes Creek late Thursday or early Friday after a bridge over the creek was partially washed out by floodwaters when the area received 2-3 inches of rain, officials said.

Indiana Conservation Officer Josh Thomas said the creek, a tributary of the Whitewater River, quickly surged into a torrent in the region, which has many steep ridges and valleys that are prone to flooding during heavy rainfall.

It’s unclear whether the vehicles were washed into the creek at the same time or separately, he said.

The Indiana Department of Natural Resources’ Law Enforcement Division shared this photo of a washed out bridge along Sanes Creek where the six died after being swept away

Rescuers searched tirelessly until the final victim, a 13-year-old boy, was confirmed dead

‘It´s terrible. It’s hard to fathom,’ Thomas said. ‘Down here, with all these hills, things flood quickly. A lot of these creeks are very small, but all of a sudden they´re big with a lot of water and a lot of water moving really fast. They go down almost as quickly as they come up.’

He said all of the victims’ bodies were found along the creek and not in the vehicles.

Laurel is about 55 miles southeast of Indianapolis.

Solid Bare Copper Security Cable Vs Stranded Bare Copper Alarm Cable

Countrys like China and India have so increased the demand for raw materials such as copper that the cost for such commodity items has risen dramatically in recent years. Since copper is a key component of low voltage alarm cable its cost has also risen significantly.

Another factor which contributes to the cost of low voltage wire and cable is how much copper production processing is involved in making a particular type of copper conductor for for the low voltage wire and cable.There is much more processing and thus cost in the manufacturing of stranded copper conductors. A less costly alternative is to use solid copper conductor wire and cable since it does not require the extra manufacturing processing costs of stranded wire copper conductors.Wire and cable made with solid bare copper conductors is not as flexible as those made with stranded copper conductors. The decrease in flexibility is made up for with the reduced expense of solid bare copper alarm cable. Most low voltage alarm systems use a small gauge (22 awg.) size wire and the small loss of cable flexiblity does not just justify overlooking the costs savings of using solid conductor wire.

In today’s market the cost of a 2 conductor 22 gauge (awg.stranded bare copper security wire would cost about $29.50 (US Dollars) per 1000 feet (304.8m) of wire. The cost of a 2 conductor 22 gauge (awg.) solid bare copper alarm cable is $26.95 (US Dollars) per 1000 feet (304.8m) of wire. By using the solid bare copper conductor alarm wire you would save 8.64%.

Here is another example:This 2 conductor 22 gauge solid bare copper alarm cable cost just $20.75 (US Dollars) per 1000 feet (304.8m) of wire. If the 2 conductor stranded bare copper security cable costs $29.50 (US Dollars) per 1000 feet (304.8m) of wire, you save $8.75 (US Dollars) per 1000 feet (304.8m) of wire or 29.66%.

Here is a more detailed description of the alarm cable which costs just $20.75 (US Dollars) per 1000feet (304.8m) of wire:
