Life is a combination of freeways and traffic lights. Speed where you have to, heed where you have to.
GATTACA is one of the movies that had me in awe. The story is set in a future society where genetic discrimination, profiling and prejudice are prevalent. But then there is one man, genetically inferior, who impersonates a genetically superior person to cheat the system to follow his dream – become an astronaut. Just before starting his space mission after overcoming several challenges, his real identity is about to be found out. What happens next is a beautiful part of the lovely story. I really liked the fact that they did not show an overly ‘robotic’ future. Go get the DVD!
and btw, ‘GATTACA’ itself is a DNA sequence
With every breath in, life is teaching us this lesson – to let go!

My friend Vikas wrote an interesting & informative article about milk in a blog. I am a fan of raw milk. I make cheese outta that and enjoy drinking creamy, flavorful, boiled fresh raw milk. I recommend reading his article.
“This all started over a dinner conversation with our dear friend Prashant Bajaj who is a chemist by training and he educated me on the nuances of homogenized and ultra-pasteurized milk. Even though I am a health nut I was quite clueless about these facts so I thought it would be a good idea to do some research and share the findings.”

Life is music…our breath is god’s love song to us…our smile is our song back to him. Are u singing?
Frequently my friends ask me how to take a good picture. Is that the camera, or the lens, or what it is. In my opinion LIGHT is the first requirement. Even in low light photography, light is the king. How you control light is the science – the aperture, shutter speed and the ISO. And what you do with light is the art. Man & the machine is needed. The skill comes with practice and learning, but there is so much choice with the machine. So what will give the perfect picture?
In my opinion there is nothing called a perfect picture. Among your friends that are caught up with the 8 MP cell phone cameras, the picture from your DSLR camera even if scaled down to 5 MP will blow them away. Among your friends that have kit lenses, the pictures from you ultra expensive F2.8 lens will be superior. Among professional photographers, the pictures from someone who has this ‘magic touch’ will be more appealing. The perfect picture is not in the machine or in the technique, it is in the heart. Any picture that brings joy to your and your loved ones’ heart is the perfect picture.
