In the mist of dreams the touch of your skin is tinder igniting a flare becoming a flame. Your eyes seek out the savage in me. Here we are still lovers and like starving animals we devour each other with weak bites never completely consuming one another. Like an animal
Kawasi Himde is no celebrity or someone from a cosmopolitan city, she is a tribal woman. A few good media tried to cover her news still. Kudos to the ones who are holding the mic behind the screen to bring her story out. The rest of the NEWS media was busy in covering the IPL and... Continue Reading →

🙂 Cat Mom and Duck Kittens
Ronan and Emm Lally own a small farm in Ireland that they run alongside their day jobs. They had a lovely collection of animals but wanted some ducks to complete the picture. On the day their ducklings hatched, Ronan went to check on them and could not find them anywhere.
When they finally found them and saw their cat Della had gotten to them first, they assumed the worst. Instead, they discovered something amazing.
This is one of the most remarkable wildlife interactions , the photographs are amazing, but it’s the touching behaviour of the animals involved that makes this story so unique. Photographer Evan Schiller and Lisa Holzwarth were on a game drive in the northern Botswana’s Selinda area when they came across a big troop of baboons charging through the bush....

Thanks for these statistics. Hope this fate changes 😥
Many dump their parents in OLd Age Homes.
This behaviour is not restricted to the poorer sections alone.
Affluent sections also resort to this, dumping parents in old age Homes , verbal abuse and refuse to maintain them.

Shopping for a cause
SAHAJ is a NGO that works with tribal women artisans of Gujarat. Sahaj has helped several tribal women earn a livelihood and support their families. Their main base is Dahod but they do have a store in Baroda (named Dharohar). That’s how I came to know of them.
M and I have often visited their store and had a lovely shopping time buying jewellery, baskets and generally browsing through their collection. They have a pretty big collection of skin care products, coffee mugs, bags and decor items. I had bought a huge mud coffee mug that i used as a pen stand. It has a rustic look and is of very fine quality. All their products are.
In my last few days in Baroda, we visited their exhibition held at Trisha gallery (They had lovely dupattas. I made things difficult for M by telling her to buy all…

Awesome, Thanks for sharing and spreading the word about such arts which definitely needs something to boost up.
It was a festive evening in Kolkata and while I watched well dressed men, women and children turned out in their finest with a spring in their step my eyes did not miss the stall selling art pieces across the road. I stopped by at the stall chatting with the artist who gladly showed me all his pieces and described his art while attending to his customers who were attracted by the jewelry on display. Bamboo Art is popular in Kerala, Bengal and other eastern or north eastern states of India but the pictures and details in this post is from Bengal.
All the stuff that I photographed is hand made as in carved out of bamboo manually. After that it is sanded to make it smooth and then burnt to get the colour as well as to harden the piece. Finally, it is varnished for that rich brownish glossy…

Cool Facts about Crocodiles 🙂

One such Capture is as follows–
In the above picture as You can see all the Crocodiles have their mouth closed except one,Now that made me think whether it was a real or fake(My Knowledge on Animal behavior is really poor),as I kept looking at the Crocodile for good 10 minutes and still there was no movement,but a minute watch helped me to see the tongue of the Crocodile in motion and I came to know that it is a real one.. 😛

Realpolitik in simple worlds means – politics or diplomacy based primarily on power and on practical and material factors and considerations, rather than explicit ideological notions or moral or ethical premises. A phenomenon widely practiced in India today. The entries under REALPOLITIK are an ATTEMPT to connect the immediate events which go past us by looking at the funny side of those ! It is outright silly !!

I waited and waited and waited for them to reverse their decision but nothing happened. I am forced to write and publish this post hoping that REASONING will revisit Kolkata again. When ASI went in search of the elusive gold another story was unfolding in the east which had all the ingredients to surpass the former but stayed subdued though. Kolkata banned CYCLE and its TRIBE from most of its thoroughfares !!! Environmentalist and Cycle enthusiasts were clueless…
