I had to go inside the room. The light inside was very dull. It was dark outside.

Not because of street lights but because it was a moonless night. Street lights anyway did not work for last couple of weeks.

The municipal corporation was not doing its job properly. It did not listen to people’s grievances and gave excuses to address the issue.

The situation did not improve due to the corrupt officials in the corporation.

I was responsible for this planning.

I met Jacob about a month back in the summer of June.

I was having coffee in café coffee day in the relaxed atmosphere after visiting bank.  I was sitting alone chatting with my friend on phone when I felt someone’s hand on my shoulder. I held the call and saw who he was?

He was a middle aged man about 55 years old, wrinkles running down his…

How can you tell age of a tree

Do you know age of a tree planted around you?

As a tree grows, its trunk thickens as new wood is added in the middle of the trunk.

The age of a tree can be judged not only  by the thickness and height of a tree but also by the number of circles on the trunk. Each circle indicates roughly a year.

In fact if find any severed tree you will see number of concentric circles in a cross section of trunk growing from the middle outwards. The space between two concentric circles represent annual layer of wood and by counting number of circles themselves the age of a tree can be known.

If you count number of circles in some giant fir trees, it will be many hundreds of years old.

These circles are also known as tree’s rings.

 

Amazon rainforest-more than 350 species found

Amazon rainforest is one of the most famous and dense rainforest in the world. It is also dangerous if anyone goes deep into it.

This world’s largest tropical rainforest lies in much of north western Brazil and extending into Colombia, Peru and other South American countries. It measures about 5.5 Million sq km.

Discoveries by scientists have been mostly in endangered areas threatened by human activities as confirmed by World Wildlife fund (WWF). It took nearly 2 years for scientists to do this task.

Nearly 381 species were found including 216 plants, 93 fish, 32 amphibians, 19 reptiles, 1 bird and 20 mammals.

Some of the interesting new finds include fire-tailed titi monkey, or Milton’s titi, a white ball acari, a nocturnal river fish, and a ‘honeycomb’ stingray, a freshwater ray.

A Brazilian judge has held an order on proposed mining in the area nearly size of Switzerland which is really applaudable otherwise these discoveries will cease in future and we will lose all natural resources.

Parking problem haunts me even in dreams

Parking is a very serious problem in major cities especially in Delhi.

You cannot park your vehicle in narrow roads and in rainy weather when the roads are choked with water and become mini swimming pool.

Wide roads look good but again one floor/one family has 3-4 cars making it very difficult to park your car.

I dreamt of such issue in my dream today morning.

I got married to a slim dusky girl. I had to leave for office and was getting ready when she asked me if I could drop her to office.

I became irritated a bit but not much as we got married recently.

I used to walk a lot in the morning and in the evening. This was a sort of passion for me and had been doing it since childhood.

I did not take car to the office due to parking problems. It can take 10-20 minutes to park the car depending on the traffic.

The office was about 15 minutes walking distance and was good for my digestion. I had my breakfast before leaving for the office and then I gulped down 2 bananas and a cup of tea after settling in the office.

But today I had to go in the car as my newlywed wife had asked with a cute smile.

With the passage of time I will have to make her understand that walking is good for health.

I hope she will understand. Otherwise I will be left with no option but to drive her every day.

Oh my God what should I do?

Suddenly I felt a jolt and everything became blurred and within seconds disappeared.

My wife had shaken me as sun had come out and shining with full smile.

I was relieved as it was only a dream to drive car to the office and not having bananas with tea in the office.
