Dog Love

I love to watch how dogs communicate.  The pet lovers know it better.
Here is a picture of a street dog and a house dog talking to each other.  It was yet another love story!

MATLAB or matlab?

Saw this poster in Bangalore Central mall. Really puzzled for a while with the word 'matlab' - I was wondering what MATLAB software has to do in the ad, until I realized its matlab (Hindi equivalent of 'means'). 


White Owl - My Spirit Guide

White Owl - My spirit guide
White Owl - Close up shot.
The apartment security guard was chasing away something with a stick. I parked my car and asked him what. He said 'there is a danagerous pakshi that brings daridhara'.  I went and looked at the tree beside - wow, its a snow white owl.  I was in a wow state still as I am seeing an owl for the first time. It looked a puppet toy and blinking its eyes.  It had some black spots on its belly not sure if its a pattern or infection. I clicked it posed.  I moved, clicked and it posed. People said it cannot see - but I think it can see as black and white. Some believe, the white owl brings bad news. Some say that is a vehicle of Goddess Lakshmi and hence brings wealth and prosperity.  Some say its a spirit guide. I do not know but I felt its good for me.  Of all I heard, I take the White Owl as my spirit guide - someone who reminds me of the intuitive powers.

In The Laps of Trees

Trees have witnessed
the time
Trees have withstood
the time
The very sight of Trees fascinate me.
It may be a very primitive, inherent desire to gaze at trees and admire.
Some how I am not able to dismiss them as 'part of the nature'.
See these trees.
They show elements of life.
They have witnessed the time.
They have withstood the time.
They have faced every day Sun, Soil, Wind
and all forms of invisible energy for long.
They take some shape beyond our understanding.
God rests in the
laps of a tree
They are among us.
Or is it other way round
- we are among them.
They point to the sky.
Probably their roots can be a more fascinating
- a brain like neural network.
If God had to rest, it could be in the laps of trees.

Colony of Bats

I dont remember when was the last time I encountered a bat in my life time.  But when I saw a colony of bats (a group of bats is called colony) in my office campus, it was very scary.  I thought they were crows, disturbed by a death of a fellow bird or so.

For long, we know bats as spooky birds having watched several mythological movies.  I researched on the internet and I found them to be scientifically great animals.  I wonder how did our education system does not bring all these fascinating facts during our schooling. Bats seem to be friendly mammals.

Today' sight of bats certainly created some interest in bats. I will explore and come back when I find something interesting.
