LAKE CHARLES.....&...... RITA....

Beautiful houses like these (first 7 pictures) and the one above, make up the small town of Lake Charles, a small and very beautiful town on the border of Texas and Lousiana. As far as I could make out, Lake Charles seems to be a locality for retired people and has a lot of chemical factories in its vicinity. Hurricane Rita has made a small drift in its ravaging path and is predicted to make landfall near Lake Charles in the areas of Port Arthur and Beaumont, Texas. Its sad to think that the hurricane might probably ruin all these beautiful houses.

Its been three days now that I have been following the African WildCam. The more I monitor it, the more interesting it turns out to be. There is more in detail about it in the latest issue of the National Geographic, which I have not received yet due to my late membership renewal. But anywyas, in the last three days.....& nights.....Botswana time (as I have been trying to monitor it 24 hrs, I have been able to track a lot of animals with real nice crispy video stream...all thanks to National Geographic. CLICK HERE TO SEE A ZEBRA MOVIE. CLICK HERE TO SEE A CROCODILE MOVIE It is just amazing to see these animals in their wilderness......HERE ARE SOME SNAPSHOTS!! This is a trial, and I guess I will find more interesting pictures henceforth...As for this one, it surely looks like a pre school science class!! :-)
By the way, the Zebra movie is about the zebras getting startled after seeing something in the pond.....and several minutes later....I got the croc movie.....thats when the croc came out of the water to bask in the Botswana sun. Never knew there was a croc in the pond.

National Geographic's African WildCam: UPDATE
My earlier post a couple of days back....mentioned about the African WildCam.
I never thought this would be so good! Yesterday.....or rather today.....early morning and before dawn....I was pleasantly surprised to actually see wild animals come to have a drink at Pete's Pond on NG's African WildCam.
Here is a list with the corresponding CST:

A whole herd of AFRICAN ELEPHANTS: 4.30am CST/ 11.30am Botswana Time

OSTRICHS: ~5.00am CST/Noon Botswana Time

WARTHOGS: 10.30am CST/ 5.30pm Botswana Time

Deer, Chamaca Baboons and birds called LESOGO keep coming in all day.

Right now its 8.52pm there in Botswana, 1.52pm here and there is a KORI BUSTARD which seems lost and shouting around! :-)

Saw the following movies in the last couple of weeks:

SALAAM NAMASTE: This movie is total CRAP....EXCEPT the tiny role of Javed Jaffery. He has probably 2-five minute roles in the whole crappy movie and that is hilarious. Javed Jaffery plays a mimic of crocodile dundee, speaks broken English with an AusTRAILIAN accent. He has an Australian wife, whom he addresses as WIFE and she does not understand his English or Hindi. So whenever JJ says anything to her she just says "Sorry?!" and JJ follows "EXAJHHACTLY".....these part is hilarious, though gets a bit over in the end. BUT this one quote is the best " WHEN IN ROME, DO THE ROMANS" as JJ means to say "When in Rome, be a Roman."
Over all the Movie is a piece of CRAP so don't watch it.

CITIZEN X: Excellent movie...based on a true story in Rostov, Russia, the plot involves the tracking of a serial killer who committed 52 murders from 1980 to 1990. The chief detective in the case was a forensic surgeon who is given charge of the case by his immediate superior. Its an awesome tale of perseverance, patience and logical common sense without any goriness. A must see for anybody interested in murder mysteries.

2046: After seeing House of Flying Daggers, I have decided to see all the movies by Zhang Ziyi. She is just too good an actress. 2046 is also a masterpiece from her. The story is a bit slow and sad but the acting by Ziyi is just too powerful. Also the setting of the movie is good and simple which enables you to enjoy the movie even with subtitles. Other good upcoming movies by Ziyi....Memoirs of Geisha, Jasmine Flower. Here is an interesting picture of Ash making more waves...in China with Ziyi..

MANGAL PANDEY: As expected, you cannot blow up a single personality in India's magnanimous freedom struggle. And for those who remember Ajay Devgan in Shaheed Bhagat Singh, this movie is also similar where you have a good star cast but the story itself is so weak, nobody can do anything. Though I do not understand why Amir Khan took 4 years to get the movie done...it definitely does not reflect in the movie. Also the Khan is not at his best of acting, but I guess to the best of his moustaches!!!

VIRUDH: Also saw Virudh more than 2 weeks back...and I say Amitabh still rules. Even at this age, comparing him to Khans(Saif and Amir) these tinytots are just nothing but smaller than pennies in front of the priceless Amitabh. In the movie Amitabh is also greatly supported by Sharmila Tagore. That Abraham kid is also kept well at bay, not to blabber much and let Amitabh and the 'Tigress' do the job. Didn't know Mahesh Manjeraker would fish out such a good one, totally in contrast to his previous movies.

THIS IS SOOoooooo Cooooool....

Check out THIS LINK!! The live stream is provided by National Geographic, from a camera placed near a pond known as the Pete's Pond in the Mashatu Game Reserve, Botswana, South Africa. Explore around and you will find more information about it. The brief description to the left also gives you the local time. Right now its just sunrise there, and you can hear the morning birds chirping and some animals coming over for a drink.....This is so interesting....Its my one life time wish to visit atleast one game reserve in Africa when ever I get a chance.

An Envious Episode...

A post on Ansel Adam's picture on Blog of Parag reminded me of my room mate a few years back. This roomie of mine went garage-sale-shopping one early morning and bought home a huge blow out of one of Ansel Adam's many 'Monolith' pictures. I asked him how much did he get it for and he said for $2. The photograph (of course a replica) was with a very good frame and in perfect shape. He said he got it cos he liked the frame so much, and he planned to get rid of the photograph and keep the frame...Grrrr I told him how could you ever think of throwing away an Ansel Adam picture...and he asked me..."Who is Ansel Adam?" I told him about the great genius and asked him to give me the picture. After knowing who the genius was....he till today refuses to give me that picture....& I still keep on asking him for that every now and then.... :-)

Ohh BTW there is a beautiful exhibition on Ansel Adam's photographs currently running in the Harry Ransom Centre of our University and will go on till mid January 2006. Anybody interested in photography and who gets a chance do not miss it!!

Deception Point

Just finished reading Deception Point by Dan Brown. This completes the list of all Dan Brown books I presume! As always, Dan Brown was impressive and I found Deception Point to be better than Digital Fortress. Hence in order from best to good its like this: Angels & Demons, DaVinci Code, Deception Point and Digital Fortress. I found DF and DP somewhat on a similar story line probably as both involved governtment officials or government machinery and potrayed breach into the top most heirachical positions of the government. But Deception Point does keep you engrossed unlike Digital Fortress which I personally feel was a bit slacking at some points, probably cos it was more like an over-dose of encryptions and computers. Neverthless, whatever the subject maybe, Dan Brown does make it a point to simplify as much as possible. Over all Deception Point is a very good read, worth putting your time into..

Ever since I moved into my new apartment, I have noticed that I have a lot of ants moving around near one part of the kitchen top. WEll not a lot but definitely noticable in number and believe me.... they are not a nuisance. Infact when I observed them closely for a few days I found out that they are pretty considerate or intelligent or understanding not to bother me much with their presence. So what I'm saying is these ants never infest food or drink or syrup inside containers!! They are very much satisfied with the crumbs that fall off from the bread or cookies or an occaisonal small drop of honey from the waffle!! So one day I kept a packet of cookies on the table top-open and the ants never touched it then I kept the bottle of honey open too...and they didn't care to infest it at all!!!
Nice intelligent-considerate-symbiotic ants I say! :-)

Something that I received in my mail, I just liked the way this particular photo was morphed!!
UPDATE: The face in the picture is that of the present Railway Minister of India, his name Mr. Laaloo Prasad Yadav, former Chief Minister of one of the most notorous and outlawed states of India, Bihar.

Considering the current global situation.....the middle two stanzas make so much sense from the ever beautiful song....Imagine by John Lenon...

Imagine there's no heaven,
It's easy if you try,
No hell below us,
Above us only sky,
Imagine all the people
living for today...

Imagine there's no countries,
It isnt hard to do,
Nothing to kill or die for,
No religion too,
Imagine all the people
living life in peace...

Imagine no possesions,
I wonder if you can,
No need for greed or hunger,
A brotherhood of man,
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world...

You may say Im a dreamer,
but Im not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one.

Excellent song...excellent music......excellent lyrics...
