Crying glaciers

How about this to depict mother nature crying? The glaciers and ice caps melting are some the highly perceptible effects of the global warming scenario.

Irrespective of the merits of the global warming debate.. this picture, captured by Michael Nolan, as a photograph is very descriptive of whats happening to the ice caps.

Have you guys played Tetris before? I am sure most of us have. Such an addictive game... Used to play this even in the Windows 3.1 time.. oops.. looks so much behind in the past. But nevertheless it was fun ... Have been hours at it before..

Also there is a two player version .. where two players compete against each.. the beauty in that if one player completes more than one row with a piece, two rows (jagged) gets added to the other player. This is apart from the points one gets for completing a row... U guys tried playing the two player version?.. It used to be fun..

Now how about this for a large scale tetris...

Ganesha Processsions

This is Vinayaka Chaturthi season and this is the time the Ganesha idols are taken in a procession for immersion.

The processions vary from simple idols with meagre decorations to highly decorated idols. The people in the procession go about dancing with all kinds of drums single sided horizontal, single sided vertical to double sided drums of various sizes. But the enthusiasm of the folks who dance in the procession is amazing.. may be quite a few were "in high spirits" too.

BTW Ganesha goes around in the processions only covered with Police security.. ;-) You see Gods too opt for Z+ Security I guess..
