CHAOS

yes...the name...
the name itself persuaded me in the book shop to buy it...

its the name of the book that I have started reading yesterday...

after reading the prologue and the back page...I was convinced to buy it...
one review at the back page said that one would never look at the world in the same way after reading the book...
although have never heard of the author James Gleick, but the book's an interesting one...
just had a foray through the first chapter...The Butterfly Effect...and was instantly reminded of the Ashton Kutcher starred movie with the same name...

all the experiments started from the ongoing research by the famous Lorenz...
I was startled to learn that the research started on the basis of his experiments on Meteorology...
seemed very wayward to me in the beginning but after setting the tempo with the chapter really wanted to appreciate the keen observation by the man himself...

will try to read it as soon as possible...
regarding the question left on the anvil in my last post...there's not much difference in the condition till date...

Gadbade Festival in Northern India

When I went to India last month, I got a chance to attend all the major festivals at home. It was an experience which I had been looking for since my childhood when I had moved out of town for studies, then work, then eventually out of the country for work again.
I visited my birthplace Nahan after a long time and got a chance to see my grandparents who were equally excited to see after more than a year. I discussed with my grandfather about the festivals and rituals which we used to follow and their significance. Despite being a candid discussion, I actually recalled and learned a lot. As a child, I was never too patient to understand why we celebrate some festival as I would always be after the festivity treats, sweets, foods, gifts etc. I visited my grandparents on October 11, 2011, this year which eventually was the Sharad Poornima day according to the Hindu calendar. As a part of the annual ritual I got a gift from my grandmother for ‘Gadbade’ festival and I recalled about the sa…

I am in New Zealand

I have been trying to publish this post for a long time now. :)
I will complete 8 months outside India on May 7, 2011. Looking back it seems that only a week back I had arrived in Wellington.
Coming to a new country is always a great experience. Many disagree, but I somehow find it that way. It becomes even more special when one comes out of his native country for the first time.
Same happened in my case. I travelled to Wellington on September 6, 2010, and reached here the next day. In transit, I crossed many countries, of course in air :D and set foot in 2 different countries: Singapore and Australia.
Wherever I halted, I tried to find the similarities and dissimilarities with India. Maybe that is basic human nature. But I found that whole experience to be interesting. In the flight itself, I came across 2 different cuisines which made me realise that I am really outside India now.
I am planning to write a detailed post on my flight experiences but I am very lazy to do that. So I th…

Brisbane - Gold Coast Hinterland - Day 1

Australia is an interesting place. Due to the sheer size of the country, it has areas having totally different climate from each other. The southern states (Victoria, New South Wales etc.) have predominantly temperate climates. The northern and western states enjoy summer and subtropical climates throughout the year.
Visiting Sydney last year had already given us the taste of Australian culture and landscapes. When the Christmas holidays approached, we thought of visiting Brisbane. We chose Brisbane because our great friend Jain Saab had recently moved to the city. I was in touch with him and shared my thought with him. He strongly urged us to visit them and he would show us around. We started planning for the visit and eagerly looked forward to it. Having known Jain Saab for years now, I can easily say that there are very few persons who can match his positive attitude and joyous spirit. He and his wife are one of the best hosts I have met. We were going to experience it this summer…
