Dec. 25th Wednesday

7.30 a.m. - Woke up with a prayer to thank GOD that Ghazini is at last releasing (including a thanks to the Mumbai HC also).

7.45 a.m. - Woke up DC (a friend) with a msg. I know it was very stupid, but did not have the energy to call him up and wait! Sent a msg. Mu duty over. End of waking up story.

8.00 a.m. - Attended to the morning elementary functions.

8.30 a.m. - Called up other members of the First-day-first-show movie gang for an update on their status. 2 were still sleeping soundly. Gave them a gud dose of verbs ;)

9.00 a.m. - Waited for breakfast with bated breath. Show timings - 10 a.m. and that too in Patel Nagar and I m still @ home having breakfast :(

9.15 a.m. - Reach Dilshad Garden Metro Station. Nearest to my home.

9.20 - Catch a train to Kashmere Gate.

9.35 - Run like hell to change lines @ Kashmere gate. In b/w all this nonsense of running hither thither, the phone does not stop ringing. sigh...

9.45 - Alight @ Rajiv Chowk to catch another train. Frantically calling up friends to ask as to which train to board next. Grrrr...plz tell me who booked the tickets...@#$%^&*

9.50 - Boarded the next train. Two of my friends are already in the same train as I but am unable to meet them coz of the rush.
10.15 - reach the station near Satyam Cinemas. We three run as if Police is following us or we are following a thief (No, i think we were followed by a dog). Phew!!! I hate exercising in the morning. Guys, I m gonna kill u!

10.20 - Reach the Multiplex. "I am not a terrorist" "Plz let me go inside" "We can do the checking later". But who listens dese days to the plea of an innocent first-day-first-show-aamir-movie-lover...Oh! Gosh! only if I had owned a theatre. But on a second note, it is right also. Our security is in our hands only. If we do not cooperate then it is we who suffer. If the security is beefed up in public areas like this, it is for our own safety. And we do not stop blaming the authorities for being so negligent.

10.23 - Atlast I am in my seat which is the worst seat I have seen in my movie history. Its rocking like a baby's craddle. Aaargh.... we have already missed the starting scene of the movie.
Now that I am seated, Aamir is mercilessly beating up someone. let me watch the movie in silence.

Intermission - Till now the movie is awesome with some glithces here n dere. But for Aamir, everything is acceptable.

1.30 p.m. - Irresistible, incredible, awesome, action-packed, romantic, emotional...I m searching for more words. he...he...he....

I thank all the guys who made this movie event happening and rocking!!!

Danger on Road...Happened on June 3rd

I was jolted out of my sleep by the screech of a was the car I was travelling in, that had given me the jor ka jhatka dheere se lage wala jolt. I was sleeping soundly in the front passenger seat (an activity undertaken everyday to & fro the office), when the driver suddenly applies brake and I m thrown forward in my seat (sorry! I wasn't wearing my seatbelt!). I glanced at him with sleep-driven eyes but instead of being sorry for his act he was ponking his horn loud for the cars ahead of us to get lost...and he was also staring at something...I took cue n followed his gaze n 2 my horror saw a dog writhing in pain on the road just 2 metre ahead of us. It was then that the driver told me the reason for the sudden brakes...a car in front of us had ran over the dog and had left it to die in pain. The dog was in so much pain and fully covered in blood that I just couldn't take a look at it the second time. Instantly a prayer left my lips to God to help that dog and to save his soul. But the dog had had his share of destiny written already n I believe HE had penned it this way.

I couldn't just muster up the courage to look at the poor dog rather help it to the side of the road. It may be because of many reasons.
I cannot see a lot of blood flowing (ironically I wanted to be a neurosurgeon @ one point of time which is history now :(
I didn't have the guts to pick up the blood drenched dog in my bare hands.
I didn't have the courage to have my car stopped and call for ambulance.
Maybe I was afraid that if I stop the car n get down to help, wat are my cab mates who are sitting in the car going to think. That I was stupid enough to help a DOG n make them late for the office.
I didn't even have the courage to call up an animal ambulance.

Shit!!! man. When I think of that day, I get goosebumps. But I really wish I could have been of some help to a dying animal.
I do not know what karma had been done by the dog, but no animal or human deserves to die in this manner.

Why is it that life is so unfair with some n very fair with the others?

Why is that everything has been written for you? Your destiny is pre-destined for you and you are just a puppet come to play his part???

Why is that life has so many questions and so little answers?

Nvertheless, I believe God has sent me on this Earth for a purpose...not only me but everyone in this world is here for a purpose...and we need to fulfill that purpose in order to make our existence worthwhile.

I do not know what all this stuff that I have written relates to the life we live, but I do know one thing. Life is a very precious gift by God to any living being and if you show respect to life, it will surely reciprocate.

Farewell time

They who go feel not the pain of parting;

it is they who stay behind that suffer.

just a thought. shifting to a new pilot team within the office on the 15th.

It is said that "Life chooses its own destiny". We have no control over birth and death. Man may have developed to the extent of cloning human beings but it has not developed to the extent of controlling birth and death. Wherever you are born, fate has already decided your place and manner of death.

You lot must be thinking की why i am being so senti.

Well, the reason happens to be this - we have had a death at our home today. We don't know who he/she was, from where did he/she come or how did he/she land up at our home. But one thing is for sure की he/she was destined to breath his/her last at our doorstep or rather balcony...
A pigeon was sitting in our balcony in the early hours of the morning today. My brother saw it first & came running into the house asking for dad. Dad was in the washroom at that time. I asked him what it was n he said that a pigeon has messed up itself in a MANJA (the thing used to fly kites). I went out to see it n he was sitting there near the flower pots trying to drink water from the wet ground. When I saw that what the pigeon was thirsty, we instantly brought water for him. My mom put out bajra also for him. He drank the water and ate the bajra.
Dad came out and tried to cut his manja but the pigeon was such tangled up in the manja that unfortunately he had cut himself up. We could not save him. My dad deduced that the pigeon was tangled in the manja 1 or 2 days before which is why it was in such a bad shape.

This is why I said that fate has pre-decided our destiny. However we may try to change it but we CANNOT change and control birth and death.

But I am happy for one thing - humne marte hue prani ko paani pilaya. Couldn't save the bird but yes atleast served him before his death.

May his soul rest in Peace.

not a gud day :(

2day seemed to be d baddest or may I say the worst day i hv experienced in office till date. not that i havent been thru bad days earlier but 2day was something different...i came into a depressive mood coz of many reasons which i think was my foolishness to take it on heart. But then it is human nature to feel hurt n i m no exception...

well i dont foster any hurting for long but then some things pinch like pins that they leave a mark somewhere or the other. I will have to learn to accept them and learn from them rather crying over spilt milk...As has been rightly said by a gr8 scholar -

Gud days give u "Happiness"
Bad days give u "experience"
worst days give u a "lesson"

but then i asked the forgivings of GOD who is omnipresent and overseeing all things. HE is truly the one before whom i can vent out my heart and that is wat i did today coz i believe that when GOD has brought you to it, he will take you thru it!!!

I also learned an imp lesson in life thru a friends mail - THE LAW OF GARBAGE TRUCK!!
Many people are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, full of anger, and full of disappointment. As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it and sometimes they'll dump it on you.
Don't take it personally. Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on.

Don't take their garbage and spread it to other people at work, at home, or on the streets.

The bottom line is that successful people do not let garbage trucks take over their day.
So .. Love the people who treat you right and forgive the ones who dont !!

Life's too short to wake up in the morning with regrets.

Love him or hate him, he sure hits the nail on the head with this!

A few years ago, Bill Gates gave a speech at a High School about 11 things they did not and will not learn in school. He talks about how feel-good, politically correct teachings created a generation of kids with no concept of reality and how this concept set them up for failure in the real world.

Rule 1: Life is not fair - get used to it!

Rule 2 : The world won’t care about your self-esteem. The world will expect you to accomplish something BEFORE you feel good about yourself.

Rule 3 : You will NOT make $60,000 a year right out of high school. You won’t be a vice-president with a company car and expense account until you earn both.

Rule 4 : If you think your teacher is tough, wait till you get a boss.

Rule 5 : Flipping burgers is not beneath your dignity. Your Grandparents had a different word for burger flipping: they called it - opportunity.

Rule 6: If you mess up, it’s not your parents’ fault, so don’t whine about your mistakes, learn from them.

Rule 7: Before you were born, your parents weren’t as boring as they are now. They got that way from paying your bills, cleaning your clothes and listening to you talk about how cool you thought you were. So before you save the rain forest from the parasites of your parent’s generation, try delousing the closet in your own room.

Rule 8: Your school may have done away with winners and losers, but life HAS NOT. In some schools,they have abolished failing grades and they’ll give you as MANY TIMES as you want to get the right answer. This doesn’t bear the slightest resemblance to ANYTHING in real life.

Rule 9: Life is not divided into semesters. You don’t get summers off and very few employers are interested in helping you FIND YOURSELF. Do that on your own time.

Rule 10: Television is NOT real life. In real life people actually have to leave the coffee shop and go to jobs.

Rule 11: Be nice to nerds. Chances are you’ll end up working for one.

If you can read this.. Thank a Teacher!

Taoist Philosophy

Before Angels & Demons became a worldwide best-seller, the Philosophy ambigram was the most popular design. This was appropriate, as the most significant influence that led to the development of ambigrams was the yin/yang symbol, central to the ancient Chinese philosophy Taoism. As a result of the meditations on the philosophical principles behind yin and yang, the ambigrams render Taoist ideas as visual word-based art.

The basics of Taoism are concerned with the ebb and flow and natural balances inherent in nature and the lives of human beings as well. Appropriately, the words that were chosen to develop into ambigrams reflect these same principles: ambiguity, symmetry, balance, and synthesis, to name but a few.

Taoist philosophy undoubtedly developed in the same way that Western science did– through the observation of nature. It holds that the universe exists in a dynamic state of balance that ebbs and flows with the interplay of opposites: light and dark, male and female, day and night, the seasons, the tides, and the death of one organism supporting the life of another, all exemplify this balance. This is the way of nature, and the word Tao means The Way, or the path. The path is not a straight line. It is the path of least resistance. Taoism holds that water represents The Way best. A stream must yield to every obstacle in its path, yet eventually erodes each one. In its progress from rain to river to ocean, and eventual evaporation, water travels a neverending circuit.

These ideas came to be graphically represented by the yin/yang symbol. The two halves are not in opposition, but exist in a complimentary relationship. Taoists do not believe, for instance, that "good" will ever win out over "evil." Rather everything has its positive and negative aspects that cannot be isolated, and that therefore, "good" and "bad" will always exist in a dynamic relationship of ebb and flow.

The dot of opposing color represents the idea that in every force there exists the seed of the opposite force. That night is created by the sun, ensures the day. That the tide is low in one part of the world when it is high in another means that the two must necessarily reverse. A philosophy cannot be a dogma. It must openmindedly reflect on any fact or point of view. It must be a way of thinking. A framework within which to observe. It may require looking at things from the vantage point of another person, or another culture, or natural system. The complimentary opposite halves, yin and yang, represent this idea as well. One cannot hold to a yin point of view exclusively. North is not "better" than south, nor day "better" than night.

Ambigrams require the viewer to see from different points of view. The selection of words is oriented towards ideas that represent the natural processes that the yin/yang symbol represents and asks that the viewer consider both points of view.

Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam Says:

"Knowledge is the foundation of all progress.
Knowledge has three components:
1. Creativity
2. Righteousness
3. Courage...
An indomitable spirit can make you achieve a lot of things."

"It is important to first set a goal, acquire Knowledge to achieve that goal, work hard and have perseverance and then you can defeat any problem."

Impossible is Nothing...!!!

I recently read the following somewhere, and it has to be here...

Remember to be gentle with yourself and others. We are all children of chance, and none can say why some fields will blossom while others lay brown beneath the August sun. Care for those around you. Look past your differences. Their dreams are no less than yours, their choices in life no more easily made. And give. Give in any way you can, of whatever you possess. To give is to love. To withhold is to wither. Care less for your harvest than for how it is shared, and your life will have meaning and your heart will have peace...

Your time is limited,so don’t waste it living somebody else's life.Don’t be trapped in dogma-which is living with the result of other people’s thinking.Don’t let the noise of others opinion drown out your own inner voice.And most important,have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.They somehow already know what you truly want to become.Everything else is secondary.

Mighty difficult things to do...but IMPOSSIBLE IS NOTHING!

I wonder...

I wonder
What to choose
At its best
Its creature
At its best

I wonder
What to choose
A few drops of dew
In the morn
On green grass of my fervent lawn
The air conditioned rooms
With a chilled weather in june
A weather
That i can tune

I wonder
What to choose
To see birds fly
In southerly breeze
Fly like a bird
With gas breezing sneeze

I wonder
What to choose
A dewy dawn
With bird chirps
A kingdom
With sirens, gongs
And blowing horns

I wonder
What to choose
A ray of light
From the sun so bright
The microns we slave
To illuminate
Even the darkest corners
Of the grave

I wonder
What to choose
The starry skies
After the jaded twilight
A day so bright
With an endless fight
And almost no night

I wonder
What to choose
A man
With burning flames of desire
A shear ignorance to admire

I wonder
If i am to choose
If it already chose me

I wish
I could chose
Or if
I was to decide
I guess
I am here
Just to abide !!

Uncaptured Dreams

Confined in the corners of my heart,
Some dreams lie in hope.
Those were nurtured and cultured since ages,
They are the ramblings of my innocent mind.

From childhood to youth I grew,
My dreams became many from few.
They blossomed over my eyes,
My thoughts both old and new.

But now as I move towards maturity,
My innocence feels demure.
"Will my dreams ever come true?",
This insecurity creeps far and more.

Still, everyday when I wake-up,
My eyes add a new vision to my store.
On this day, with a new start,
"My Dreams will come true", I dream this even more.

Marriages ARE made in Heaven

Our first meeting was very short.
I din’t speak much. I’d better not.

Then we began meeting more.
I spoke less, but heard galore.

Though in the same office,
We met during post office hours.
The weekends were no more mine,
They were all OURS.

My parents fumed,
When they came to know.
But I was not able,
To say a firm “NO”.

Marriage seemed the only way out.
I was in no hurry, but that’s what “they” were discussing about.

Finally, one fine ‘Saturday’,
The D-Day arrived.
And now I had achieved,
For what I’d always strived.

I was happy and no more worried.
Coz my Line Manager was getting married.

So, no more staying late and working weekends.
Here, begins my Fairytale as my nightmare ends.


tanhai gham deti hai,
aisa logon se suna hai.
tanha hain hum ab tak,
gham ke baare mein ab bhi sirf suna hai.

kahaniyon mein padha hai,
ke pyaar kiya nahi ho jaata hai,
aaj-kal to samayrekha tay hai,
vilambh hua to nishaana badal jaata hai.

saathi ke khoj mein,
bhatakte hain log dar dar,
haasil karne waalon ki durdasha ko dekh,
kaanpta hoon main thar thar.

baaton mein mithas chidkein,
aur chehre par nakaab pehen lete hain.
ek doosre ko samajhna to door ki baat,
svayam apna vyaktitva bhoola dete hain.

zulfon, hothon aur nigahon mein kho kar,
saat janmon ka vaada karte hain.
punar janam aatma leti hai,
roop nahi,yah sathya magar bhool jaya karte hain.

chathri jaise rishton ka kya,
jo barsaat ke saath goom ho jaaye.
rishte hon to kalaai ke us dhaage ke samaan,
jo tootne par bhi nishaan chod jaaye.

na hum chaahe barsaat mein saath,
na humein kalaayiyon mein nishaan chahiye.
hum thaamna chaahein unka haath,
jinka saath humein umr bhar chahiye.

apni tamannaon ko bhool,
jaane tyaag mein vo kaisa sukh paayein.
ek aur mahatyaag unhe tab karna pade,
jab apne bachchon ki shaadi unke liye khabar banke aaye.

bhagode premiyon ka kya,
unhe bahaa le jaa rahi pyaar ki kashti hai.
bhugatthe to unke maata-pita hain,
jinke izzat ki uththi arthi hain

the 3 mistakes of my life

Picked up this book yesterday...but didn't get much time to read it thru...has started it though.

Hope its gud enough like the first (5 point someone) publication by Chetan Bhagat. I didn't like the second one :( though.

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound's the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.

Happy Mother's Day

M - O - T - H - E - R
"M" is for the million things she gave me,
"O" means only that she's growing old,
"T" is for the tears she shed to save me,
"H" is for her heart of purest Gold;
"E" is for her eyes, with love-light shining,
"R" means Right, and right she'll always be,
Put them all together, they spell
A word that means the world to me.

A single droplet of antimatter contains the explosive power of a ten kiloton bomb (Hiroshima.) Antimatter is extremely unstable and explodes when it comes in contact with absolutely anything (even air.) Nonetheless, antimatter is now being produced at CERN in Switzerland, where anti-particles are accelerated around a 27-mile-long circular tunnel... traveling so fast that they complete the enormous circle over 11,000 times per second.

Antimatter is routinely produced at CERN (more than 10 million particles per second.) The World-wide Web was invented at CERN. The world's largest magnet, weighing more than the Eiffel tower, is at CERN. CERN's biggest accelerator is 27 kilometers around, and particles travelling near the speed of light lap it over 11,000 times each second.

Water Water Everywhere, not a drop to drink

Day after day, day after day,
We stuck, nor breath nor motion;
As idle as a painted ship
Upon a painted ocean.

Water, water, everywhere,
And all the boards did shrink;
Water, water, everywhere,
Nor any drop to drink.

A Women's Poem

He didn't like the curry
And he didn't like my cake
He said my biscuits were too hard...
Not like his mother used to make.

I didn't prepare the coffee right
He didn't like the stew,
I didn't mend his socks
The way his mother used to do.

I pondered for an answer
I was looking for a clue.
Isn't there anything I could do
To match his mother's shoe

Then I smiled as I saw light
One thing I could definitely do
I turned around and slapped him tight...

Like his mother used to!!!!!

God's Answer

A person asked GOD, "what surprises u most about mankind?"GOD answered: "They lose thier health to make money & then lose their money to restore their health. By thinking anxiously about the future, they forge the present, such that they live neither for the present nor the future. They live as if they will never die, & they die as if they had never lived...."

An equinox in astronomy is that moment in time (not a whole day) when the center of the Sun can be observed to be directly above the Earth's equator, occurring around March 20 and September 23 each year.

More technically, at an equinox, the Sun is at one of two opposite points on the celestial sphere where the celestial equator (i.e. declination 0) and ecliptic intersect. These points of intersection are called equinoctial points—the vernal point and the autumnal point. By extension, the term equinox may be used to denote an equinoctial point.

There is either an equinox (autumn and spring) or a solstice (summer and winter) on approximately the 21st day of the last month of every quarter of the calendar year. On a day which has an equinox, the center of the Sun will spend a nearly equal amount of time above and below the horizon at every location on Earth and night and day will be of nearly the same length. The word equinox derives from the Latin words aequus (equal) and nox (night).

$You can put the Blame on Me...$

As life goes on I'm starting to learn more and more about responsibility
And I realize that everything I do is affecting the people around me
So I want to take this time out to apologize for things that I've done
things that haven't occurred yet
and things that they don't want to take responsibility for

I'm sorry for the times that I left you home
I was on the road and you were alone

I'm sorry for the times that I had to move
I'm sorry for the fact that I did not know

That you were sitting home just wishing we
Could go back to when it was just you and me

I'm sorry for the times I would neglect
I'm sorry for the times I disrespect

I'm sorry for the wrong things that I've done
I'm sorry I'm not always there for my sons

I'm sorry for the fact that I'm not aware
That you can't sleep at night when I am not there

Because I'm in the streets like everyday
I'm sorry for the things that I did not say

Like how you are the best thing in my world
And how I'm so proud to call you my girl

I understand that there's some problems
And I'm not too blind to know
All the pain you kept inside you
Even though you might not show

If I can't apologize for being wrong
Then it's just a shame on me
I'll be the reason for your pain

And you can put the blame on me
You can put the blame on me
You can put the blame on me
You can put the blame on me
You can put the blame on me

Said you can put the blame on me
Said you can put the blame on me
Said you can put the blame on me
You can put the blame on me

I'm sorry for the things that he put you through
And all the times you didn't know what to do

I'm sorry that you had to go and sell those bags
Just trying to stay busy until you heard from dad

When you would rather be home with all your kids
As one big family with love and bliss

And even though pops treated us like kings
He got a second wife and you didn't agree

He got up and left you there all alone
I'm sorry that you had to do it on your own

I'm sorry that I went and added to your grief
I'm sorry that your son was once a thief

I'm sorry that I grew up way to fast
I wish I would of listened and not be so bad

I'm sorry that your life turned out this way
I'm sorry that the feds came and took me away

I understand that there's some problems
And I'm not too blind to know
All the pain you kept inside you
Even though you might not show

If I can't apologize for being wrong
Then it's just a shame on me
I’ll be the reason for your pain

And you can put the blame on me
You can put the blame on me
You can put the blame on me
You can put the blame on me
You can put the blame on me

Said you can put the blame on me
Said you can put the blame on me
Said you can put the blame on me
You can put the blame on me

I'm sorry that it took so long to see
But they were dead wrong trying to put it on me

I'm sorry that it took so long to speak
But I was on tour with Gwen Stefani

I'm sorry for the hand that she was dealt
And for the embarrassment that she felt
She's just a little young girl trying to have fun
But daddy should of never let her out that young

I'm sorry for Club Zen getting shut downI
hope they manage better next time around
How was I to know she was underage
In a 21 and older club they say
Why doesn't anybody want to take blame
Verizon backed out disgracing my name
I'm just a singer trying to entertain
Because I love my fans I'll take that blame

Even though the blame's on you
Even though the blame's on you
Even though the blame's on you
I'll take that blame from you

And you can put that blame on me
And you can put that blame on me
You can put that blame on me
You can put that blame on me
And you can put that blame on me
And you can put that blame on me

Nah! I m not a gr8 fan of english music but the sheer content of this song has caught my attention and emotions as well...!!!

The Golden Ratio/The divine Proportion - PHI

In mathematics and the arts, two quantities are in the golden ratio if the ratio between the sum of those quantities and the larger one is the same as the ratio between the larger one and the smaller. The golden ratio is approximately 1.6180339887

What is Phi?
Phi ( = 1.618033988749895... ), most often pronounced fi like "fly", is simply an irrational number like pi ( p = 3.14159265358979... ), but one with many unusual mathematical properties. Unlike pi, which is a transcendental number, phi is the solution to a quadratic equation.

Phi is the basis for the Golden Section, Ratio or Mean

The ratio, or proportion, determined by Phi (1.618 ...) was known to the Greeks as the "dividing a line in the extreme and mean ratio" and to Renaissance artists as the "Divine Proportion". It is also called the Golden Section, Golden Ratio and the Golden Mean.

Phi, like Pi, is a ratio defined by a geometric construction

Just as pi (p) is the ratio of the circumference of a circle to its diameter, phi () is simply the ratio of the line segments that result when a line is divided in one very special and unique way.

The Divine Proportion and Life

"All life is biology. All biology is physiology. All physiology is chemistry. All chemistry is physics. All physics is math."
- Dr. Stephen Marquardt

I believe

I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge
That myth is more potent than history
I believe that dreams are more powerful than facts
That hope always triumphs over experience
That laughter is the only cure for grief
And I believe that love is stronger than death.

Advent of Underwater Colour Photography

Underwater color photography was born with the shot of a hogfish, photographed off the Florida Keys in the Gulf of Mexico by Dr. William Longley and National Geographic staff photographer Charles Martin in 1926. Equipped with cameras encased in waterproof housing and pounds of highly explosive magnesium flash powder for underwater illumination, the pair pioneered underwater photography.

Milestones in Underwater Photography

A blast of highly explosive magnesium flash powder allowed photographers Longley and Martin to photograph underwater life for the first time. When the men wanted to take a photograph, they clicked the camera’s shutter, which tripped a battery on a raft they dragged behind them. The battery, in turn, triggered the magnesium powder explosion, which illuminated the sea down to 15 feet (4.6 meters).

Yin n Yang

In Chinese Philosophy, yin and yang are generalized descriptions of the antitheses or mutual correlations in human perceptions of phenomena in the natural world, combining to create a unity of opposites.

The dual concepts of yin and yang (or heaven and earth) describe two primal opposing but complementary principles or cosmic forces said to be found in all non-static objects and processes in the universe.

The image below (scroll down plz) showing yin-yang is a circle (presenting taijitu- the initial unity of universe) with two parts: white part presents yang and black part presents yin. Two parts pass through each other on a line because yin and yang are never separated, such as if people do not know what bad is, they do not know what good is. There is a small black round in white part and so is in black part; that presents the philosophy: "yang in yin, yin in yang" (for example: though water is fluid-yin, water is also hydraulic-yang); if yin is not in yang, yang is not yang and so on (everything have two aspects). Neither white part nor black part is a semicircle because there is never absolute balance between yin and yang. There is always a stronger aspect and a weaker aspect; that presents the philosophy: "Whenever yin is stronger, yang is weaker and so on". If the circle is divided into two by any diameter, black or white colour never cover all of the area of a segment because universe is never in all yin or all yang.
On the opinion of stay, two parts are put together in a circle; that is unity. On the other hand, on the opinion of motion, two parts are contradict aspects, they fight and interchange each other; whenever the trend of yin increases, the trend of yang decreases and so on. At the specific time when yin is extreme, yin starts to grow into yang and so on (for example: day after night, night after day). The unity maintains universe and the contradiction is the stimulation of the universe's development.

A simple way to put it: In good there is always a little bit of evil, in evil there is always a little bit of good - everything has two aspects.

I am back in d bizniz of blogging after a short gap (had 2 go 2 Manu Bhai's marriage in Jabalpur). Enjoyed my holidays..dey were like a bliss come true :).

d element of surprise

Many folk like to know beforehand what is to be set on the table; but those who have laboured to prepare the feast like to keep their secret; for wonder makes the words of praise louder

I will be a healer

I will be a healer, and love all things that grow and are not barren.

Put this engraving on my Tombstone

Though here at journey's end I lie
in darkness buried deep,
beyond all towers strong and high,
beyond all mountains steep,
above all shadows rides the Sun
and Stars for ever dwell:
I will not say the Day is done,
nor bid the Stars farewell.

do ur duty

'Follow what may, great deeds are not lessened in worth,'
'Great deed was the riding of the Paths of the Dead, and great it shall remain, though none be left in the WORLD to sing of it in the days that are to come.'
Need brooks no delay, yet late is better than never.

Doomsday is approaching...

Tomorrow will be certain to bring worse than today, for many days to come. And there is nothing more that I can do to help it. The board is set, and the pieces are moving.

'I am no warrior at all and dislike any thought of battle; but waiting on the edge of one that I can't escape is worst of all."


If you have walked all these days with closed ears and mind asleep, wake up now!

'The mightiest man may be slain by one arrow"

Time is important

'Time does not tarry ever but change and growth is not in all things and places alike."

"Rich are the hours, though short they seem."

Believe in urself & ur friends as well...

Even now there is hope left. I will not give you counsel, saying do this, or do that. For not in doing or contriving, nor in choosing between this course and another, can I avail; but only in knowing what was and is, and in part also what shall be. But this I will say to you: your Quest stands upon the edge of a knife. Stray but a little and it will fail, to the ruin of all. Yet hope remains while all the Company is true.

Love is everywhere

The world is indeed full of peril, and in it there are many dark places; but still there is much that is fair, and though in all lands love is now mingled with grief, it grows perhaps the greater.

Destiny is not ours 2 choose

However it may prove, one must tread the path that need chooses!
"Faithless is he that says farewell when the road darkens"
The road must be trod, but it will be very hard. And neither strength nor wisdom will carry us far upon it. This quest may be attempted by the weak with as much hope as the strong. Yet such is oft the course of deeds that move the wheels of the world: small hands do them because they must, while the eyes of the great are elsewhere.

Study ur enemy

It is perilous to study too deeply the arts of the Enemy, for good or for ill. But such falls and betrayals, alas, have happened before.

My anger is dangerous

They drew away from me, for they felt the coming of my anger and they dared not face it while the Sun was in the sky.
He that breaks a thing to find out what it is has left the path of wisdom.

Time will Shine

There are many powers in the world, for good or for evil. Some are greater than I am. Against some I have not yet been measured. But my time is coming.

All dat glitters is not gold

All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.
From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.

Trust me always

You can trust me to stick to you through thick and thin — to the bitter end.
And you can trust me to keep any secret of yours — closer than you keep it yourself.
But you cannot trust me to let you face trouble alone, and go off without a word.

Thought 4 d day

The wide world is all about you: you can fence yourselves in, but you cannot for ever fence it out.

Avail d opportunities in life

Still round the corner there may wait
A new road or a secret gate,
And though we pass them by today,
Tomorrow we may come this way
And take the hidden paths that run
Towards the Moon or to the Sun.

Going 2 work & back...

Home is behind, the world ahead,
And there are many paths to tread
Through shadows to the edge of night,
Until the stars are all alight.
Then world behind and home ahead,
We'll wander back to home and bed.
Mist and twilight, cloud and shade,
Away shall fade! Away shall fade!
Fire and lamp, and meat and bread,
And then to bed! And then to bed!

I m against capital punishment

Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgement.

Black Speech

Three Rings for the Elven-kings under the sky,
Seven for the Dwarf-lords in their halls of stone,
Nine for Mortal Men doomed to die,
One for the Dark Lord on his dark throne
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
One Ring to rule them all, One Ring to find them,
One Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them
In the Land of Mordor where the Shadows lie.
The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow, if I can,
Pursuing it with weary feet,
Until it joins some larger way,
Where many paths and errands meet.
And whither then? I cannot say
