Parents please take heed of the survey."ALL WORK AND NO PLAY MAKES ARUN/MOHAMMED/RUDI/Balbir/Chang/ and Jonah Cosmopolitan dull boys " ?
Almost one out of three school-going children in the country does not have a healthy body mass index (BMI). The percentage of children with an unhealthy BMI increased from 20% last year to 33% this year.

Sunday(22-1-2017) :- "CAT IN THE SWIMMING BACK-PACK BAG " .Before i could pack my swim gear cat "Matahari" has sneaked into the open bag and made herself snug.I have even closed the zipper of the bag and could have taken her out of the house concealed in the bag ! Smugglers and the Law enforcement could learn a few tricks from "Cat Matahari's" innumerable bag and closet escape demonstrations in my house. This habit of hers also once saved her after falling onto the kitchen parapit in the night.I lowered a basket onto the parapit and she quietly went and sat in it and hence i lifted her up into the kitchen.Otherwise i would have had to call the fire-brigade to lift her from that precarious spot. She would have fallen 5 floors below to her death if not on the house parapit. A miraculous great escape and proves the fact that a "Cat has 9 lives".

Have you ever seen chickens being transported for "SLAUGHTERING" ? Have you ever seen cattle being transported to "ABATTOIRS" ? How does it feel when laggard race horses are sent to "ABATTOIRS" ?Why is "Horse Racing" not banned but "Cock-Fighting" ,"Kambla" and "Jallikatu" banned ? Seems "P.E.T.A" and certain "Animal welfare" organizations" have double standards in differentiating "CRUELTY TOWARDS ANIMALS AND BIRDS"..Among us humans why do we have the "RICH" and "POOR " classes ? Its a endless debate as life itself is unequal. I have been reading views on "ANIMAL CRUELTY BANS" .This is my opinion and that is the fact that traditional animal sports are a part and culture of various societies in India and the world.Let it be so or other wise ban every animal sport including "Horse racing", the sport of billionaires.
Amid the raging protests over Jallikattu in neighbouring Tamil Nadu, organisers of 'Kambala' (buffalo race) in Karnataka today decided to hold the traditional sport in Mangaluru on January 28 in violation of court orders restraining the same. The

As a totally Westernized city bred Indian brought up on Indian Hindi film and Western Rock, pop and Rap music it was a wonderful free concert of 3 days that introduced all genres of Indian music.The venue festival anchor at the seaside promenade Mr Aman.Sharma kept the crowd busy with his wit and anecdotes. Still better was the venue of the concerts and we residents staying by the seaside rarely appreciate the sea beauty in our own backyard ! The daily Sunset observed from the promenade venue of the festival was appreciated by everyone including the performing artists.The food stalls were doing roaring business and the "Worli Fish Koliwada" stalls exposed the locality to the fishing viillage called "Worli Koliwada" ! The Managing Director of "OMCPL" Mr Rahul.Gomes one of the main co-sponsors along with "Shree Sankalp Pratishthan" announced that the "WORLI FESTIVAL" would henceforth be a regular annual affair in Mumbai akin to the "Kala Ghoda" and "Bandra Festivals".The next date of the "Worli Festival " is in January-2017 ..If you have never ever visited the "WORLI FESTIVAL" then be there in January 2017.

Had been on a tour of Aurangabad with "Shikar Vedh tour Group' of Mumbai. During ourr tour we decided to eat street food and with great difficulty managed to discover this classic roadside restaurant.The entire narrow street is clean and lined with various types of eateries.We were a group consisting of 12 tourists and decided to order Kebabs and their "Dum Biryani". It was excellent biryani served in brass utensils with kebabs as starters. If in Aurangabad please vsit this roadside eatery if wanting to taste authentic Aurangabad cuisine.
