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...

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…

An year outside India

It has been a long year and an exciting one too. :)
First time out of India and that too for a year continuously, can be definitely challenging. Especially when one is used to having worldly comforts of  servants, food delivered at doorstep without even calling anyone daily, driving a motorcycle whenever and in whatever way one wants...and much more.
Anyway, each thing in life has its pros and cons. The best way to live life successfully is to always look at the Pros (huh, as if I do that always). Just trying to look at the pros of living in a place like New Zealand can bring up a list of many significant and insignificant things such as:- Walking to the office daily, keeping the body in a good condition.Living without a fear of adulteration in even the basic materials e.g. milk, food.Not seeing any corrupt practices. (they might exist, but I am not in contact with any of them so I am happy)Being treated well by the shop keepers unlike India where people still try to judge the purchas…

Brisbane - Gold Coast Hinterland - Day 2

Continued from here: Brisbane - Gold Coast Hinterland - Day 1.
A long and adventurous day ensured that we slept like babies at the resort. We had some awesome places and activities lined for the coming day. Although, just 3 hours ahead of time from our home time zone of Auckland, we were awake at 4 AM local time in the morning. After waking up I realised that it was too early and everyone was asleep.
The interesting point I noted was the fact that there was no daylight savings time correction in Brisbane, in fact in the whole state of Queensland. As a result, the sunrise happened even before 5 AM. This was a pleasant surprise for us. Our friends being used to the phenomena were deep asleep. We decided to make most of that available time and went out roaming in the rural surroundings of the resort. We were walking ahead and talking about where to see the kangaroos in Brisbane. Suddenly we saw a herd of Kangaroos and felt someone had just heard and granted our wish to see them. We were ela…
