I also am very firm in the belief that they need to be a part of it. I can’t let Manu raj handle sharp cutters which are required to cut the board but he can damn well handle the paper and the glue and the mud and everything else that goes in this project. It is essential to engage him so he learns something and enjoys the process of creating something with your own hands.
The success rate for nature is very poor. Be it the number of salmons swimming upstream to lay eggs in the river finally surviving the seals and the polar bears or the seeds that a tree or a plant produces each season.
This was a failsafe mechanism by nature - to actually produce a lot more than required. This ensures that life goes on even without an external intervention or inspite of it.
Since when did sugar become synonymous with happiness? There was a time when cocaine was not a banned drug, it actually was an ingredient in Coca Cola and that is what gave it the name Coke. But that was when we didn’t know any better. We have, since then, banned cocaine and have removed it as an ingredient from cola. Sugar has been and is still used very liberally in our food and although it is not a dangerous drug like cocaine, consuming copious about of it, as in sweetened drinks like carbonated drinks and packaged fruit juices don’t so any wonders for our health either.
I was wondering if any money has changed hands for Sachin to be on the can of a Coke. Got my answer the other day when I was Sachin Tendulkar in the ad of Coke. With this he has joined Aamir Khan as a celebrity to endorse both Pepsi and Coke, and why not? Apparently Pepsi is the choice of new generation and Sachin is not a part of that generation anymore, so what do you expect from him?
This was, for more than an year the most anticipated thing in the entire country. Every time India played a match the only thing discussed was Will Sachin Tendulkar be able to score his 100th 100 in this match and there were a lot of disappointing innings - innings when Sachin was not able to score the 100. More disappointing even than the loss of India is some of those matches.
As far as I remember, Sachin has been a brand ambassador of Pepsi, right from the time when he was the new sensation till quite recently. Finding him on a can of Coke was a surprise.
Well, I haven’t got any info on what this thing is.
Wondering if the birds had faced the same problem with population as we are experiencing, how would they have coped with it, specially when there are less and less trees around to make nests. Would they have moved to apartments from independent houses as well?
