The Drone affair

After Chinese reports, it is clear that Pakistanis have got themselves into a highly embarrassing spot. I decided to check, where this town of Bhimber, where the plane was supposed to have shot down, was on Google Earth. Bhimber town is about 80 Km from Indian city of Jammu and its distance from nearest point from LOC (line of actual control) is nowhere less than 17 Kms.

The LOC passes through very hilly terrain here and using a very limited range Quadracopter (2 Km with a battery life of 23 minutes) like Phantom 3 for reconnaissance would be a sheer act of imprudence and there is absolutely no possibility of Indian military having resorted to such a foolish endeavour.

“The Great departure”: sculptured over centuries, across the sub-continent
This sculpture radically differs from the previous two that I have described above. Gone is the Hinayana symbolism of Sanchi railing designs and holy arches. Gautama’s palace is perhaps represented here just by a decorative pillar. There is no city gate in the sculpture at all. The entire scene bears typical Greek influence. The most important change here is that the prince is shown in human form and is seen blessing the people around.

The Name Game
I know longer blame my grandfather for having selected my name that also belongs to two great men of science; on the contrary I would like to thank him for his foresight.

How ancient Buddhist rock cut temples of Maharashtra were constructed?


That is why we need to look at Chinese ancient structures to give us a glimpse or an idea of how ancient Indian Buddhist structures must have looked like. Henshan hanging temple, I think, is one such perfect example that can tell how Ajanta, Ellora and Pitalkhore were constructed and  must have looked in their glory days.

Relationships and Expectations
It is a fact of life that we keep expecting things from everybody else throughout our lives. It is also true that most of the expectations remain unfulfilled again all through our lifetimes, giving much pain to us. What should we do? Unfortunately, no real solution really exists. The only way out is by controlling our own minds, we reduce our expectations. The less we expect from others, happier would we be!

This week, we feature another great by Jim Reeves. "I won't Forget You" was performed and released in 1964. It reached number three position in UK charts and also was the 56th biggest-selling single in the United Kingdom during the 1960s.

 2nd January 2011, proved to be a golden day for the archaeologists excavating an ancient site in India's Gujarat state. A labourer digging in one of the trenches found two miniature earthen pots. He took them to the site supervisor Mr. S.Nandkumar, who took the pots to Mr. Jitendra Nath, Superintending Archaeologist, Excavation Branch. After examining the contents, Mr. Jitendra Nath, announced excitedly: “They are gold beads.” One of the pots contained 26 disc-shaped beads, micro beads and a ring, all made in gold, along with some steatite beads. What perhaps was most important, was that this gold was not just ordinary gold but it belonged to 4200 year old Harappan era of Indus civilization, 2565 to 2235 BCE.

Removing the scars

It is a common experience that wounds heal quite fast, perhaps in days or at the most in weeks, yet the scars remain for long, for years or even decades. It seems that this holds true even in case of nations, badly bruised by aggressions and wars. In the year 1962, China attacked India and there was a 21 day border war fought on two fronts. The war was over quickly and over the years the wounds in the mind of Indians have healed. Yet scars remain. They are visible for anyone, visiting border areas of Ladakh and Arunachal Pradesh.

Walking out of the family

Yesterday I watched a Hollywood film titled " Alex of Venice," that depicted a crisis in the life of a career oriented workaholic woman with a 10 year old kid. The woman called as "Alex," and her husband, it seems had agreed several years earlier to reverse the roles and the woman taking over the job of the bread winner and the husband that of home maker. The crisis came about, when on one morning, the husband was gone, he had just walked out of the family.

One of India's big vehicle manufacturers; Tata Motors, announced this week, a major marketing shift for its once hoped to be the flagship car; Nano.

It will have more boot space. all high tech stuff like blue tooth connectivity and would be known as "Gen X Nano." With the changes, the price would also double.
