Global warming is going to be a big problem in future(or today itself!!) ..I think that's the message the film "day after tomorrow" gives... although the movie has exaggerated everything ,its worth thinking why should we give importance to global warming.

I remember when I first heard the term global warming. it was from a science magazine ...and actually I was very much interested when I read about it. the one thing which attracted me was that they mentioned that glaciers in the poles of earth will began to melt and will move to oceans ..and they said these big glaciers will wander around the sea without completely melting...I remember imagining a glacier moving around the Arabian sea ...near kochi .....that would have been something very interesting....

anyway I also read that effect of global warming wont happen very soon or suddenly ...but its something which we have to take care about for the better future of our next generation.

At last the saga of verappan came to an END .. when i saw the flash news i was thinking what will happen next..i have already heard that lot of villagers near the sathyamangalm forest revered him as a saint...for them he was more than a saint ..a GODi think. without the help of villagers i dont think veerpappn could have survived . its said veerappan knew every nook and corner of satyamangalm forest...i remember when i was in school we went for an tour to banglore ...and on the way back to ooty we travelled through satyamangalem forest..but at that time veerappan was not causing any troubles to tourist...

anyway nobody knows how he will be remembered by people in futre ...as a Robinhood ? or as a cold blooded mrderer ??..

the story is somewhat like this ...in the deeps of kalahari desert in africa lives bush men... a very much tribal people ..they are some what like primitve hunters... they live in small groups..hunt for the day..have a simple social life... eat - drink - mate - sleep ..so simple ...they dont have any law..religion ....they are not binded by anything related to a society.. one day the "hero" of this movie ...?? or main charachter ?? ..saw a strange thing coming from sky...(actualy a bottle ..a pilot flying above the kalahari desert throwed a bottle down through his planes window. ). he took to to his family. they began to use as a tool for several purpose ...from playaing music to grinding seeds.. but as it was the only one avalibe in that community, argument and fighting for the bottle begins .....so our hero plans to go to the end of the earth so that he can through it down..and he starts the journey..........from there story begins ....

if anyone get a chance to see the movie...dont miss it.....

Bad news for me .......

i went to the SONY dealer and told them that am having the B/W problem with my DVD when am playing some hollywood movies.....the reply was not good. they said some of the DVD's are coming in a particluar format (NTSC 3.5 ..or above).. ..most of the hollywood movies are in that format..only new TV's support that color system. ..mine is an old tv.... it doesnt support that...so its time to buy a new TV ...no no..am not going to buy so soon ....i dont want to change my TV just becasue my TV doesnt support a particular color system....anyway be happy with what u have...


Today i got an intersting article...an article which will help us to better our way of praying....

its below

1. Your thumb is nearest you, so begin praying forthose closest to you. They are the easiest to remember. C. S. Lewis once said praying for our lovedonces is "a sweet duty".

2. The next finger is the pointing finger. Pray for those who teach, instruct and heal. This includes teachers, doctors and ministers. They need support and wisdom in pointing others in the right direction. Keep them in your prayers.

3. The next finger is the tallest finger. It remindsus of our leaders. Pray for the president, leaders inbusiness, industry, and administrators. These people shape our nation and guide public opinion. They need God's guidance.

4. The fourth finger is our ring finger. Surprisingto many is the fact that this is our weakest finger,as any piano teacher will testify. It should remindus to pray for those who are weak, in trouble or inpain. They need your prayers day and night. Youcannot pray too much for them.

5. Lasly comes our little finger - the smallest finger of all. This is where we should place ourselves in relation
to God and others. As the Biblesays, " the least shall be the greatest among you." Your pinky should remind you to pray for yourself.

Praying for the other four groups first will put your own needs into proper perspective and eable you to pray for yourselv more effectively!

realy nice right :)

The holy month of Ramdan (from the Arabic root word ramida, meaning intense heat and dryness) started yesterday. all muslims will be fasting from dawn to desk , except children and sick people ...and there will be "iftar" paties at evening. .according to islamic belief ramadan is the month during which the first verses of the Quran, was revealed by God through the Archangel Gabriel to the Prophet Mohammed in 610 A.D. the ramadan fasting is for around 29 - 30 days ..its based on lunar calender(hijra calender). the end of ramadan is called Eid al-Fitr, literally, "the Festival of Breaking the Fast." Homes are adorned with lights and decorations, treats are given to children, and visits with friends and family mark this time....

my duty time also changed. now its from 8:00 am to 4:00 pm without lunch break. i like this new timing..u can go home early . thats something very good.

Yesterday i wasnt feeling well at all . cold and mild fever. took a tablet and got some relief. i know how i got cold . last friday when i was attending the malayalam mass there was this guy sitting next to me and sneezing all the time ...that too without covering his nose with handkerchief. several times i felt to leave the church ..yeah it was that much horrible . everybody was looking at him . but he was cool. once he gave a look at me and i could understand what he meant by that strange look "i have cold, and i will sneeze, any problem ?" that was like mind reading ..mmmmmm anyway i didnt left the seat ..i coudnt find any other seat ,the church was too crowded. so i had bear it...and now i have cold!.

a thought came to my mind ...what that person had done is right or wrong ?? what i did was right or wrong ..i should have moved from there.. right ???. but why that person came to church although he had svere cold ? ..may be he have lot of problems and he just wanted to tell that to his lord?? ..

Biju arranged a party yesterday ...he got his visa stamped ..he was waiting for that for long time .. i could see the happiness in his face :) ..we gathered at a restaurant nearby to church. i forgot the name of the restauarnat.. an indian one..good one . had an awsome dinner ..murgi mugalai, ginger chicken, fish masala, prawn masala, mutton mugalai ..we cracked jokes..it was realy fun... enjoyed the evening.

that was a good day ..after a days hectic work. i got some relief..but at night after my prayers i began to think about my brother and his interview at infosys..will he get a job there ?? ..
