The dark side of the moon

Just something I heard and I don’t know if you are aware of it. I found it super interesting and it has sown a seed into my mind somewhere. I don’t know what will come out and when but here is the fact.



Science says that there is a part of the moon that is never visible to earth. When the earth is rotating and the moon is rotating and revolving, there is a part of the moon that is not visible to the earth because of synchronisation. Wiki will give you better details than I just did but isn’t it amazing? I didn’t know this and had never thought about it.

Does this start some creative process in you? What could be there? Who would you send there 😛


I love food. I like trying different things… Something random on food.

Recently I felt like drinking coffee, but wanted to do something new for it. Guess what I did. I put about 2-3 tbsp of chilled water, mixed coffee and sugar in that and then added boiling milk and then chopped chocolate. It tasted nice. Try it. I have heard that coffee mixes well with cold stuff rather than hot.


Making chapati is not an easy task. There is so much to it than just flattening dough. It has to be round so it looks pleasing to the eye or because that is how they make it. Yes, good thought, Y is chapatti round? Also, it has to be even, or it won’t rise.

And, while u r making it, you to multi task. You have to ensure that the chapatti which is on the tawa will not burn and the one that u r making comes round and even. Sheesh!!!


Dudhi, my mom makes it superbly. In case u don’t like it, try making it with chana dal. It turns out to be amazing. It tastes good even with slightly burnt chapatti’s

Rose – By any angle, still a rose.

Have u tried clicking a snap of a rose?

I Can never get its beauty perfectly, when u click it from above, u lose out on the layers on the side, and when u click the layers on the side, u miss out on the inside.

I guess it is like human nature. Everyone is beautiful inside and outside. To see both of them together, u have to see the person from different angles or in different situations.

Dead sea is actually a lake!!!

Imagine my surprise when I read about this. I have always been fascinated by the dead sea as I can’t swim, I remember telling this as a kid that I will float in the dead sea once.

Recently I read that Dead Sea is actually a lake. It also called the Salt Sea is a salt lake in Jordan. The Dead Sea is 378 m (1,240 ft) deep, the deepest hyper saline lake in the world. It is also one of the world’s saltiest bodies of water, with 33.7% salinity. It is 8.6 times more salty than the ocean.

The Dead Sea has attracted visitors from around the Mediterranean basin for thousands of years. Biblically, it was a place of refuge for King David.

The Jordan River is the only major water source flowing into the Dead Sea, although there are small perennial springs under and around the Dead Sea, creating pools and quicksand pits along the edges. There are no outlet streams. Rainfall is scarcely 100 mm (3.9 in) per year in the northern part of the Dead Sea and barely 50 mm (2.0 in) in the southern part. The Dead Sea zone’s aridity is due to the rainshadow effect of the Judean Hills.

There are two contending hypotheses about the origin of the low elevation of the Dead Sea. The older hypothesis is that it lies in a true rift zone, an extension of the Red Sea Rift, or even of the Great Rift Valley of eastern Africa. A more recent hypothesis is that the Dead Sea basin is a consequence of a “step-over” discontinuity along the Dead Sea Transform, creating extension of the crust with consequent subsidence. Around three million years ago what is now the valley of the Jordan River, Dead Sea, and Wadi Arabah was repeatedly inundated by waters from the Mediterranean Sea. The waters formed in a narrow, crooked bay which was connected to the sea through what is now the Jezreel Valley. The floods of the valley came and went depending on long scale climate change. The lake that occupied the Dead Sea Rift, named “Lake Sodom”, deposited beds of salt, eventually coming to be 3 km (1.9 mi) thick. According to geological theory, approximately two million years ago the land between the Rift Valley and the Mediterranean Sea rose to such an extent that the ocean could no longer flood the area. Thus, the long bay became a lake. The salt concentration of the Dead Sea fluctuates around 31.5%. This is unusually high and results in a nominal density of 1.24 kg/L.

Anyone can easily float in the Dead Sea because of natural buoyancy. In this respect the Dead Sea is similar to the Great Salt Lake in Utah in the United States. So in case I am unable to make it to Dead Sea, I will visit the Great Salt Lake. I wanna float.

I was walking back home with my friend at night (yes, mind u, at night. Why am I stressing on this fact? Read on) when either
1 Some bird shit on my finger
2 Someone threw chatni at my finger
3 (I can’t think of anything… what could it be)

Now at 11 in the night, I don’t see why someone or anyone for that matter would throw chatni on me. So my guess is that a bird who must have had heavy dinner and probably couldn’t wait till morning just let go. Help me with the third one. What could it be? Any guesses?

As soon as I realized what must have happened, I cleaned it and my friend told me that it’s a sign of good fortune.
Now, does it really work that way? Or is it simply said to make the person feel better?

I barely see any logic on fortune shining on me because some bird overate.

    absolute hilarious …

    Third guess:
    a. someone was brushing his/her teeth
    b. may be white wash or some paint plus wall putty

    Just a thought : one needs to test it to find if that was chutny or a bird dropping.

    Luck is on your way mam.

Mom’s call

Posted 29-05-2009 at 07:24 PM by sunayna

Some days back, I was sitting in my aunt’s room in the evening, I heard a kid yell for his mom. I thought to myself that how funny would it be if all mom’s came out to check, kahin ye humara pilu to nahin, but nothing happened. I didn’t hear any noise, but in a few minutes, the kid answered, so I realized that the kid’s mom had answered and the kid was replying back.
Amazing how the mom’s understand their kid’s call.
