Hi all,

I know what you all are thinking about this new post, but let me clear your doubts if any. This post is not abt the ‘Discovery’ channel or the NASA spaceship….

Before starting, let me tell you what led me to write this post.

In my thesis for my PhD degree I was supposed to write about the animals found in the jungles of Amazon. For this I took advice from my Mentor, he instead guided me too my Department Head (The indefatigable ‘Mr. Snehal’). My Dept. Head, a real good man that he is, instantly agreed to help me by coming along with me on my voyage to the Amazon (not the Website OK). He also got his good friend (a noted Environmentalist ‘Mr. Moiz’) along. We all started out on our Great Journey.

We had a very tiring trip. By the time the trip came to an end I had enough material for my thesis. It was our last day of the trip. We were completely tired and wanted to wrap things up as quickly as possible and return back home from the interiors of the Amazon. On our way back Mr. Moiz (the Environmentalist) found something interesting. He called out to us (literally yelled) to have a look at the thing of his interest. After a while we all were looking at it with stunned expressions. We had never seen anything like it before. It was a beauty of Nature.

Sure this Discovery would have made Mr. Charles Darwin a proud man today.

So, Friends am glad to inform that there has been a new addition to the Kingdom Animalia.

About the Creature:-

The creature closely resembles a Caterpillar, but is much larger in size (maybe 10-12 feet in size). The main attraction of the creature is its Eyes. That’s the reason why we were hooked onto it .We have named it Moi-Sne-Menor, a small tribute to us for such a great Discovery. We were lucky enough to find a baby Moi-Sne-Menor and even captured it on Camera(plz. find the attached the photo). Being green in color it was camouflaged with leaf so nicely that we didn’t even notice it. It was feasting on the leaf as if it hadn’t eaten since 10 yrs. We even made a video of it feasting on the leaves. Finally, when we had enough footage for our Discovery and the channel too (yes we will be airing the documentary if they agree to pay half of the ad money that they will earn when the premiere and reruns of the documentary will be aired ), we waved good-bye to our new found friend, who is still waiting to being recognized.

We need to check if we need to create a new Sub-Kingdom for Moi-Sne-Menor.

Will keep you updated if we happen to find any ‘New Mysteries of the World’.

Bye for now
Final Yr. PhD

Soft Target ‘Mr.Sallu’

Hi all,

Am glad to announce that this is OFFICIALLY my first ‘NON-Football‘ blog.
This blog is just a small thought that had crossed my mind a few minutes back, so thought to write it down.

As all of you might be aware of that Salman Khan was sentenced for 5 years of imprisonment.The news is being flashed everywhere, every news channel is showing footages of Salman being taken away n things related to it…..
Meanwhile Salman’s mother has been hospitalized after she heard about her son’s arrest.

My Viewpoint on the Issue:

Yeah!!! I know, that Salman had killed two of the ‘Endangered Species‘, but the point is just because he’s a big star people are trying to get into the limelight by projecting him as a brutal cold blooded murderer. Every single person is trying to get something for them by getting involved in this issue.
My point is that there are so many ‘Endangered species‘ being killed by common people :

  • Tribe’s kill animals for their daily needs(for Roti n Kapdha).
  • Villagers kill animals(Yes the ‘Endangered species‘) for their monetary benefits.
  • In some parts of the country ‘people‘ are murdered in broad daylight.

All these go un-noticed. I mean there should be an equal punishment for all, be it Salman/a nomad/a villager.

I feel the 5 year sentence is a bit too harsh.
A one year sentence and a heavy fine would have been enough…
Am not supporting Salman for his immoral act, but i feel he’s being made a scapegoat for no reason.

I think that stardom is like a double edged sword n tht’s the way it is…….

Barcelona On the Road to be the New UEFA Champions

April 6, 2006 7 comments

Hi all,

Plz dont start thinking that this blog will contain posts on football only.
Am not able to think of any topic, so just trying to kill time by writing a new blog on the match that i saw yesterday night.

I must say it was worth being awake till 2.45 am.
Barca played well and won the match 2-0
Benefica were under pressure from the start, maybe coz they were playing an away match.
It’s really tough for any team to play Barcelona @ their home gorund and Benefica was no exception.

They(Barca) were really hunting for the goals from the start.
But they had to wait till the 16th min of the match for their firat goal.
When Eto’o made a cross from the right wing towards the center, where Larson n Ronaldniho were waiting for the ball.
Larson faked as if he’s gonna hit it and let the ball go thru to Ronaldniho, and he(Ronaldniho) doesn’t miss any goal from that close distance.
He hit the first nail in Benefica’s coffin, the other & the FINAL nail was hit by Eto’o.
It(the goal) came in the dying minutes of the game, when Benefica was trying very hard to get the equalizer and after the second goal they knew it was the end of the road for them.

When the ref blew his whistle to indicate the full time 2-0 it was.

A hard fought game it was till the end.
Better Luck next time Benefica.

In the other quaterfinal that was played simultaneously Arsenal drew with Juventus, but won on aggregate 2-0. For a change Juventus was playing like an EPL team and Arsenal was playing like an Italian team. A pathetic match i must say.
Except for Pavel Nedved(frm Juventus) who played hard for his team n in the end had to leave the field with a Red card.
One of the worst matches played this year. i will require atleast 2 more posts to describe the match, but no am not gonna do tht, i want to forget it as soon as possible.

Neways EPL fans Arsenal is in the Semi’s 🙂
