Why Engineering, Why?

Ever since I was a kid, I was clear about one thing, I did NOT want to become a Engineer! No, Sir!

It is not because I thought Engineering is a lowly profession! But because I knew that engineering is not my cup of tea.
Why? Cos' I hate Mathematics. Period. Dobara Mat Poochna... (Don't you dare ask "Why?" again)

I wanted to steer clear of anything that was even remotely related to Mathematics.

Mom clearly understood. She felt sorry for me as I wrestled with 12 Grade C.B.S.E. Mathematics, trying to figure out the height of a frickin' lighthouse using Cos and Tan!

Kerala Dam Bursts, Millions Dead, Millions Homeless

Note: This post is NOT TRUE! Not yet, anyway! But given the state of the Mullaperiyar Dam this could be breaking news right now!

Special Correspondent
Any Time, Any Date, 2011

The never-ending dispute between the State Governments of Tamil Nadu and Kerala over the Mullaperiyar Dam has finally come to an abrupt end (as expected!) with the collapse of the Dam, killing millions of Keralites and washing away 5 complete districts (and partially affecting surrounding areas), into the Arabian Sea in under 10 minutes. The water from the reservoir is said to have reached speeds of ~120 kmph and above, as it seared through the heart of Kerala, washing away everything that stood in its way and completely flooding the districts of Idukki, Kottayam, Pathanamthitta, Ernakulam and some parts of Alappuzha.

WARDS - A Brotherhood Based on Equality

November 14 - Children's Day in India! A very special day for me, not just cos' I love kids, but cos' it is also my Dad's Birthday! :)

So what made 14 Nov' 2011 so special that I had to blog about it - Organized by my workplace (who are also sponsors), I spent a few hours with the kids at WARDS - Welfare Association for Rehabilitation of Disabled and Society!

What is the first thing that amazes you about WARDS?

Happy New Hair!

This is the story of "The Year of the Hair" and it is not a year in the Chinese calendar...

It is the year of MY hair... For someone who cared two hoots bout his own hair - 2011 was an eye-opener!

Thankfully I was blessed with great hair since I was a kid... And that is nothing special... Cos' like every mother, mine too took care of it... All I had to do was sit down and look cute for the camera as dad clicked away... :)
