Loved it: Interview with Gabriel Garcia Marquez

| One night a friend lent me a book of short stories by Franz Kafka. I went back to the pension where I was staying and began to read The Metamorphosis. The first line almost knocked me off the bed. I was so surprised. The first line reads, “As Gregor Samsa awoke that morning from uneasy dreams, he found himself transformed in his bed into a gigantic insect. . . .” When I read the line I thought to myself that I didn’t know anyone was allowed to write things like that. If I had known, I would have started writing a long time ago. So I immediately started writing short stories.

far-out: Loon, Glass, and Driverless Cars | Google Research is mostly bits; Google X is mostly atoms. In other words, X is tasked with making actual objects that interact with the physical world, which to a certain extent gives logical coherence to the four main projects that have so far emerged from X: driverless cars, Google Glass, high-­altitude Wi-Fi balloons, and glucose-monitoring contact lenses. Mostly, X seeks out people who want to build stuff, and who won't get easily daunted.

Spiritual Thought for April 18:

We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience.

Actually, there are not God Ganesha existed before 10th century. The God Ganesha was created by the intruders of Aryans in India. God Shiva is only one son of the God Murugan as per the Sangath Tamil Literature. The Emperor of Marutham Land in India became the God Shiva to all world people..

Mysterious XPs

| Nor, as far as I can recall, did it occur to me when the experience recurred a few years later. One sunny afternoon in Lochcarron I was on my own, exploring the banks of a river that ran along a broad, deep gully. I wasn’t far from human habitation but I don’t remember any sound except the river on the stones, dripping moss and humming insects. The sun was high in the west, brightly lighting one side of the gully. I was on the other side, in shade but nothing like darkness. There was nothing spooky or scary about my surroundings, nothing dangerous about my situation. Out of nowhere, the feeling of presence came back, ringing from the rocks.

My favorite Christ: Cristo Redentor

From: (thanks much to Chery)
| Brazil’s statue of Christ is, for some, the ultimate religious symbol. For others, an irresistible tourist attraction. Its image is known the world over, but few know the story behind Cristo Redentor.

updated: Brahman and Maya

|| (To Prankrishna) "Brahman and Sakti are inseparable. Unless you accept Sakti, you will find the whole universe unreal — 'I', you', house, buildings, and family. The world stands solid because the Primordial Energy stands behind it. If there is no supporting pole, no framework can be made, and without the framework there can be no beautiful image of Durga.
Devendrakula Velaalar Munettra Nalachsangham's profile photo
As per our Tamil lexicon, there is no word of Brahman exist. Generally, Braman might be originated from the Tamil word of piramai which means nothing/sunyam.

Neat place for a quick bite. My favored destination for meeting up folks on Sunday over an omelet and some coffee. The Wi-Fi facility there tempts me to lug my Chromebook along and spend some more time :-) However, serving vegetarian and non-vegetarian stuff from the same kitchen has its drawbacks. Looks like i caught a stomach bug after lunch on Sunday, March 23, 2014, and it knocked me out for the whole of Monday.

Very nice ambience and food, though a trifle expensive. Looks like they are charging the Service Tax and VAT on the (Bill + 10% Service Charge), which i think has been in the news sometime back. The difference wasn't much (INR 42), and they more than made up with the freebies (starter and dessert), but this is just for the record.
