Saraswati Puja 2015

Saraswati puja has been one of my favourite festivals since my childhood. When i was a kid,I remember how my dad used to chant the mantras and we would wait patiently repeating the Sanskrit verses. 
Since class IX I have had the same Saraswati. Somehow I felt she should be a part of our household. So she is still there, more than twelve years now. We are supposed to immerse them every year. But yeah, she is special. 
On the whole I always loved the way the simple rituals were followed, along with the good food that we always had for the purpose. Even today I got fruits, sweets and incense sticks to do things as my dad used to do back in the day. Maybe when I do back, I will be able to redo everything the way we used to in the past. With all the family members present. I have almost forgotten how that feels like by now.

Lamahata,The Ideal Destination For Nature Lovers

If you want silence, Lamahata is the ideal destination.As you approach this hill-station,it invites you with its serene and virgin beauty. A wide range of kanchanjangha is visible from here,you can also catch a glimpse of the statue of Buddha of Namchi(Sikim) right from this place.On the way to Lamahata you can take a break for a while at the sangam of the rivers of Teesta and Rangeet.The beautiful Lamahata park at the centre of this place is a treat for nature lovers. I must say you will enjoy a stroll in the park.









How To Go :You can take a taxi from New Jalpaiguri Station (W.B.),you can go from Darjeeling also.

Where To Stay:There are some homestays and tents among them Lamahata Lodge is very good.


God Tweets for us Mortals

I was honestly wondering about the reality or what I perceive it as. And this is what I came across. Of course, I could have ignored it. But since God himself or Himself has decided to come up with a statement, I simply couldn't brush it aside.
Ain't no 72 virgins waiting for you, fellas.

In any case, just when I was about to sign off, I had this clarification - that popped out from the Notification area -
I am the Lord thy God, King of the Universe, the omnipotent and omniscient Creator of Space and Time, and I can take a fucking joke.

Cooking my first pizza home

I will be honest. I never fancied cooking in my life before. But here I am having to cook stuff for myself. Life does teach your to be flexible and it's often best to take the lessons pretty seriously.

So anyway, here's a picture of the dish I cooked up for myself. It's half a pizza with fried eggs and potato fries.

It may not look all that great but it's pretty much the first time I tried making a pizza at home. I will post some other stuff on cooking soon.
Oh, by the way, I am posting this from my new iPad 2. I love it. <3

Life in 2015

Waiting for an appraisal meeting is always difficult. Honestly speaking, I am more excited than scared. Last two years were not all that great, so I hope this time I am in a rather relaxed mood in comparison.

Let's see what happens this time.


On another note, the world is being shaken up by events that I understand little about. The Charlie Hebdo attacks have thrown many accepted points of view into question. Primary among them is the fact that the attacks have found some considerable support from many moderate voices among the Moslem communities. In any case, these are strange times. Once the mud settles down we can hope to see more clearly.

Parallel Universes and Multiple Realities

It is strongly hypothesized that multiple copies of 'our' Universe exists. All with their own entities like space, time, matter etc etc. They also have a similar Sun and a similar Earth that revolves around it. Only the non deterministic events differ! Now that may theoretically mean the Earth may revolve around Proxima Centauri. But say for our benefit, we assume that at least a sizeable number of Earths revolve around their Suns. Yeah, I know its funny but possible as practically an infinite number of parallel universes may exist. So the probability of any one type event (not one event) is also infinite. So take a step back and think what it might mean.


It may mean that you in a different universe may have chosen a different life partner, a different career. You could have avoided a divorce, or have become a serial killer. You could have married your childhood sweetheart, whom you had to let go in this life. The possibilities are unending and all entirely possible, provided…
