@ Uni (Phase I)


Guess what MONASH has.. a speaker thing! Been here two years and well this is the first time i heard the thing...

"ATTENTION PLEASE: TO ALL STUDENTS AND STAFF. YOU ARE ADVICED TO LEAVE THE CAFETARIA AND COMPOST AREA FROM 8 TILL FURTHER NOTICE. THIS IS FOR YOUR OWN SAFETY PRECAUTION. PLEASE ADHERE TO THIS NOTICE. THANK YOU"

We have a beeeee problem.. and i'm stuck in the comp lab because the attendant just came in and told us that we can't leave here till 9... i feel like a refugee.. we asked the attendant wt wz up and she told us very unconvincingly that she did not know (malaysian govt like-).. bt the rumor in the lab right now is, that we have a bee hive that we need to get rid off (prb near the hostel side gate B) (and that explains the presence of those bees in ur appt the other day bhav, and well at nickshan's gf's appt as well..) and they're getting rid of it..

I'm kindda wondering how they hope to contain us in this room.. and if i could wander down at 8 30 and see wt's happening.. tik tik tik tok tik tik tik tok.. ha ha just like the mock fire drill.. and the appt rumors that the chem lab had caught on fire.. it mite turn out to be a farce.. ;)

Where to get Rosemary, Sage, Basil, Thyme in Bangalore?













There was a time in Bangalore when finding exotic herbs involved a trip to some remote farm in Ooty and finding out their supply route to Bangalore.

Thankfully, much has changed.

Look what I found at Namdharis..namely the one on M.M road, off Mosque Road, Fraser Town.


I felt like a kid in a candy store! Recipes to what I've used them for, to follow!! 

I recall seeing a collection of the same, in 1 MG Road, opposite Taj Vivanta as well, in case that is closer to you.

PS. I also found thyme, but I forgot to photograph it. Got all the herbs + salad leaves for Rs. 105


Off Products Available in India: Not Tested on Animals- India

A while ago, I turned vegan. It took me three months, to turn myself out of it, but I can safely say, that that experience changed the person in me. It started off with this documentary  and hit me hard. Possibly, owning a dog made a difference, the fact that I know him and have realized that 'they' deserve better.

Anyhow, I've never looked at a piece of chicken the same way. I couldn't keep myself vegan, so I've done the best that I can do, given my shoddy will power. It's not much, but it is something, and honestly, it's not debatable. No camel, elephant rides. No zoos or circuses, wool, leather, feathers or shells. I'm leaving them alone, materially.

And the most recent change has been with cosmetics and toiletries. I was luckier when I started off a couple of months ago, that I am now. The stock of products that I've had, has run out, and where before I was looking for shampoo/conditioner/body wash, I find myself looking for kajal, mascarra a…

Mythbusters- Well this was surprising!

So there's a show on TV(unaware if it shows in India) that aims to bust or confirm modern day myths. I was reading up on whether is it truly necessary to wash the tops cans of soda to prevent possible death from rat piss. Yes, it's a disgusting thought, but more than it being disgusting I was wondering if there was any truth to it. I mean, you were probably not aware of it till I just told you, and probably have drunk a huge number of soda cans too. And you didn't die... Now that I have your curiousity:

Find below the myth and the conclusion...

Myth

Drinking from a can of soda on which a rat has urinated can be fatal, due to pathogens contained in the urine.

Findings

Adam and Jamie began with a control sample of 1,000 cans, cleaning their tops and turning a pack of rats loose for 90 minutes to urinate on them. They discovered that the urine would fluoresce under black light, then collected 1,000 cans from various locations and storage areas around San Francisco. To their su…
