After 10 years.

This post is an agreement entered on 19th day of June 2007 at Bangalore by and between the owner of this blog and best friend/confidante of owner of the blog, stating that 10 years from today, come what may (husbands, kids, pets, neighbour's pets or any other excuses 35 year olds may come up with) both parties will together embark on a historic trip to China irrespective of which part of the world they are in, irrespective of what life would have done to them in those 10 years. Both parties agree not to include any third party(husbands, kids, pets, neighbour's pets) in the trip. Both parties agree to equally contribute in the planning of the trip (Tickets, stay, what to wear etc). In an unlikely even that the blog is closed down during the above stated period, the agreement still holds good since it has got nothing to do with the blog but with the blog owner.

Deathly hallows....

Coming few months are going to be tough. What with the release of the last of the Harry Potter series and me turning erm 25. Whatever be the fate of Harry, that being the last book will leave a void in my life and turning 25 has never been easy on anyone. I have a plan to deal with both but for now starting today I am going on a Harry Potter Marathon. Wish me luck and join me if you care to.

Save the environment

Few days back I swore not to be so self-obsessed and decided to at least make an attempt to care. Needless to say my blog which primarily focuses on me, had to be neglected. Also two months back, I stopped traveling by autorikshaws. There just wasn't anything to write about.
I genuinely am concerned about the environment so this is not just an attempt to keep the blog alive. Read on.

June 5th being environment day, a lot is being written and discussed about the saving the environment. I just intend to add to the list of dos and don'ts, something that will make a difference and will go a long way in saving the environment. My humble suggestion :

Please don't burn effigies. I am not judging you. I realize you are sensitive and are appalled when you see/hear about the shameful happenings that occur everyday. Like when a certain person is hugged by a foreign national. Or when someone paints your God and is crazy enough to display it. Or when a certain somebody refuses to sing the national anthem. Such atrocities! I sympathize with you and I realize the responsibility that you have taken upon yourself, to set things right in this insane world, to preach us about our culture and tradition. Enormous task it is indeed! My only request is, please don't burn effigies. See, when you do so, you are helping destroy this already fragile earth. Every time you feel the need to burn some one's effigy which is almost everyday, plant a tree. Name the tree after the person who has angered you. The plant will be a living testimony of the heinous crime for years to come instead of mere ash/smoke that your burning would otherwise cause. Your grandchildren will be proud of you. And maybe someday some celebrity will marry the tree and you will be famous again. Thank you. Peace.
