Every day....

Every day, in the newspapers, there is one terrorist attack, which fills us with fear and sadness. I also realized that every day's newspapers are the same...they contain:

1. Political scandal. Minister vows to get at the truth.
2. A scam exposed. Minister vows to get at the the truth.
3. Death of one endangered creature.
4. City people put to hardship due to various govt agencies not functioning properly.
5. Defeat or victory of Indian cricket team
6. Hardly any coverage of other sports
7. Merger of two companies.
8. Some weird Book of Records feat like growing longest fingernails or eating the most samosas.
9. Comics
10. Crosswords and Sudoku.

I think we buy the newspapers only for 9 and 10...otherwise we might not be able to tell one day's newspaper from another!

Just flowers, from Lalbagh.....

Instead of writing about Profound Thoughts and boring the bejeesus out of everyone else, I feel it would be better to post pictures of a few lovely flowers and inflorescences that I have seen lately!

These were all taken in Lalbagh, on Saturday, 030911.

Seems to be a kind of magnolia flower....I used this photo for greeting some friends on their birthdays and wedding anniversaries :)
