Think: All water comes from rain. Catch the water where it falls, harvest the rain!
I happened to visit the Rain Center, Chennai (Mandavelipakkam) where passionate individuals are creating awareness about Rain Water Harvesting & enabling people to implement the same in their premises.
What is Rain Water Harvesting? Continue reading
People, looks like the *popularity* of my blog is steadily rising everyday! Have a look at what I got for review through the courier, today
Paperboat drinks/juices advertise themselves as being made of natural & traditional Indian ingredients. I was hooked by that ‘traditional Indian’ thing because it’s different. Btw, everyone announces themselves as natural, even those instant juices where we need to put the concentrate and add water! Paperboat juices are not like that – they come ready to drink. We just need to open the pack and you know what to do next… Continue reading
We Indians have a weird belief in valuing security over talent/skills, while choosing a career/job. I am not saying it is totally unjustified, but there are always exceptions to it and parents (generally) don’t want to give priority to these cases.
Even though this post has been categorized under the ‘My Autobiography’ category, this is not about me. I have never been ‘exceptional’ at anything. This is about three people who studied in my school and whom I knew. Continue reading
How far would someone go, for their Love? Let’s see how far our hero – SKR, goes, for his love!
The heroine, KLJ, was brought up ‘traditionally’ in the UK, by her strict father Amrish Chapatti. She wants to ‘live’ life to the fullest, but her father wants to get her married. Somehow, KLJ convinces her father to send her on a Europe trip (presumably with her girlfriends), before she (has to) marry and settle down in India. Continue reading
What the Eye Sees (A John Hartigan Thriller) is more of a Mystery + Police Procedural, than thriller. It seems this is the first book of the Crimocopoiea series, written by Percy Kerry.
Disclaimer: I know the author from our NaNoWriMo Facebook group, and I received a free copy of this eBook, during a promotion. Continue reading
Prisoner Jailor Prime Minister is a fiction book written by Tabrik C and published by Hachette India. First off, I don’t understand why the book is titled ‘Prisoner Jailor…’, there is nothing about prisoner or jailor in this book. Secondly, while the predominant genre of this book is (supposed to be) political thriller going by the description behind the book, new-age romance dominates almost the entire first half of this book – I thought that was too much of a deviation. Otherwise, the book is fine. Continue reading
After attending this course, I decided that I will implement at least one thing taught there. After a long internal debate, I chose meditation. As recommended there, I decided to meditate everyday for 20 minutes (the most minimum recommended period), just before I slept (at 12 AM in the night!).
You think meditation is a very easy thing to do, right? Read on to find out how my #ConditionSeriousHai Mind tortures me.
Conversation between me and my mind during my first meditation:
Me: I am going to meditate right here, on this chair.
My mind: Nonsense. Go sit down on the floor. Have you seen any great Rishi meditating on a chair? Continue reading
Once again I made the mistake of taking only my mobile with me – these photos (taken using my mobile camera) are not even close to what I saw there. In future, I need to remember to carry my P&S digital camera. I want to avoid taking two gadgets, but due to the poor quality of my mobile camera, I guess I don’t have an option! Anyway, since I have taken the pictures on the road that branches in from Chennai-Bangalore highway to Kanchipuram town, I decided I will put it up on my blog anyway. So here you go -
Mini Melts Ice cream advertises itself as the WORLD’s COLDEST ICE CREAM!! It seems these ice creams are made at -190 Deg. C and served at -40 Dec. C. Oooh.. that’s COLD When I found a shop selling this ice cream around my area, I was tempted to try it. Continue reading
I was requested by the siminars.com team to take-up and review this online course called, ‘Timeless You‘, by Deepak Chopra. Initially, I was hesitant because I did not belong to their target age-group. From Wikipedia I came to know that Deepak Chopra was promoting alternative systems of medicine/healing in the West, and that made me sign up for the course immediately. I am quite enthusiastic about exploring alternative/preventive medicine systems. Continue reading
