reality....


had been to koramangala from malleshwaram on sunday and was surprised[and shocked!] by the way the autorickshaw meter kept on running and finally the amount showed by it was abt 120rs[normally its only abt 80-90rs!!]....these autorickshaw drivers manipulate it properly according to their convenience and coax us to pay such amounts..mo wonder people hate them[not all!]...

30 years ago...

This day (July 25), thirty years ago, little Louise Brown created history. She was the first baby to be born through in vitro fertilisation (IVF), a technique where eggs and sperms taken out from the human body are fertilised in a laboratory.
There was much uproar and misgivings at that point, but the technique came to be slowly accepted. Thousands of such babies have since been born
The science of meddling with eggs and sperms outside the body has not only matured, but has grown to offer possibilities that were unimaginable earlier. Surrogate mothers; using donated sperms or eggs by couples or single women to have babies; storing eggs or sperms for use at a later date or by those about to undergo radiation therapy for cancer… the list goes on. And almost every development faced some resistance and opposition by sections of society
She after 30 years....

power cut....


due to power shortage all over the state...Banaglore these days has been a victim of intermittent power cut....usually it would go off from half an hour to one hour,at 4-5 times a day.....some say it is due to increase in consumption by 30% in one year which lead to all these measures.....

present...


"tomorrow is a mystery,yesterday is a mystery but today is a gift thats why its called The Present"

finally after deciding to buy in this showroom ...we saw some good cells in that range[7-8k]...and finally decided to take "the cheapest" N series mobile[no price for guessing!...quite satisfied with its looks and quality..[many there were suggesting n73 but no one willing to fund for it!]....thanked my friend for helping me this mission came back home at 4 ....
Watched kungfu panda[couldnt resist myself after watching the 1st half]......v good movie!...a must watch for everyone!...
Lets see for many days i will be enthusiastic abt my mobile!..

GPAL

GPAL is the abbreviation we use in obstetrics to any patients[of course female] maternal history where G stands for gravida[no of total preg],P-parity[conceviable] ,A-abortion and L-live....we are so used to this thing that sometimes we tend to omit the no of pregnancies just to decrease our case sheet length since we have to elaboralty write on each pregnancy detailing about their mode of delivery,complications etc..[laziness!].....
"nimge yast makkalu"?[How many children] is the standard qn we ask and sometimes its difficult to elicit even this from those patients who would have undergone repeated abortions!..
overall obg is quite interesting [2nd week] and we learn a lot about women!!...
tomorrow is 2nd saturday and its holiday!...can sleep till 10am and may be watch a movie!!!..:)

Don't Let the Beetles Get You Down

On the slope of Long's Peak in Colorado lies the ruin of 3 gigantic tree. Naturalists tell us
that it stood for some four hundred years. It was a seedling when Columbus landed at
San Salvador, and half grown when the Pilgrims settled at Plymouth. During the course
of its long life it was struck by lightning fourteen times, and the innumerable avalanches
and storms of four centuries thundered past it. It survived them all. In the end,
however, an army of beetles attacked the tree and leveled it to the ground. The insects
ate their way through the bark and gradually destroyed the inner strength of the tree by
their tiny but incessant attacks. A forest giant which age had not withered, nor lightning
blasted, nor storms subdued, fell at last before beetles so small that a man could crush
them between his forefinger and his thumb.
Aren't we all like that battling giant of the forest? Don't we manage somehow to survive
the rare storms and avalanches and lightning blasts of We, only to let our hearts be
eaten out by little beetles of worry-little beetles that could be crushed between a
finger and a thumb?
