The Boomerang - Kangaroos and Koalas - A day at the wildlife park in Sydney


Getting used to Sydney like never before, eluding divulging silence in my heart, freeing myself off inhibitions; I was flying across seven seas. Well, I didn't mean to sound that poetic ;) It is just that the world is celebrating V-day and the fever has gotten into me.

Coming back to my Sydney Boomerang series… (Find a recap here)

When I landed in Sydney, I almost forgot about the fact that I am in Australia; a place known for the most pristine landscapes in the world. It also is home for some beautiful animals - If someone asks me what I love about Sydney, I’d say Kangaroos and Koalas. On second thought, why leave out little Wombats, Possums and Wallabies, they are cute ones too, right?!.

A Joey says”Hi” At Featherdale Wildlife Park, Sydney

Hello there!


It was a scorching summer day, perfect nevertheless for a trip around the city and we headed to the Featherdale park in Sydney. I was lucky to see some friendly animals native to Australia here. I remember when I took a newborn Joey in my hands which is by far the most amazing experience and I literally wept later thinking about it. This place is just magical the settings are perfect; the attention to detail is amazing, the animals you get to see are unique and leave you amazed in the way they are let out in the open.

Marsupial Paradise
I always wondered how love can be defined physically and God gave me the answer – Marsupials. They carry their fragile young ones in their pouch as they give birth at a very early stage. This is how nature defines love and I am thrilled every time I think about that experience at Featherdale Wildlife Park.

Here are some Pictures taken by me in the park:

Look at me!


I am dangerous


I love to sleep


Hey you!


Take me to India :)


This experience left me with having a profound sense of attachment and respect for wild animals. 
Thank You, Sydney!

'Yo-Yo' Tribe - A Meme

OK. Time for some fun, folks! Walk down the streets of any city, you are sure to find weirdos of all kinds. I am not being judgmental here, but trust me, there are a bunch of people who think of themselves as the coolest tribe on earth and the cool-ness is defined by their hair-dos and hair styles.  Let me give you some examples here...

Beginning the meme with a Zen-like look. I should admit that this look is more 'yogic' than weird. But only until he doesn't untie that bun on top! I name them the Zen tribe! :D
This style screams attention; attention from railroad signals to be specific. There are so many parallel tracks for trains to ply! The Awesome Railroad Tribe!

Well, well, I only get to see between my strands of hair and this is called 'Looking- through-the-hair-look'. "Are you smiling? winking? blushing? I don't have a clue!"




"Fine, I am growing a pine forest in my head and yes, it is fall time and some trees are starting to change color. I be…

Optimum behavior of a productive techie

How to optimize your behavior to become a productive techie?
No emails, no trouble – If you don’t listen to my advice you will end up being buried under a billion emails, most of them unread by the end of this year. Emails are infectious. The biggest hindrance to a techie’s productivity, is emails. As long as you can stick to messages confined to the subject area like the one below, it is fine. But do not go beyond that and don’t you touch the body! Get independence from your emails, be a loud and shameless conversationalist. Be a caveman, do not ping, do not email, just go talk to the person next to you.

[Home and Decor] :: Ideas for a perfect home

I have long been envisioning a place which is soulful and dreamy; a place that would like to call home.The essentials of my idea of a perfect home are:
Family and friends – They are the soulfulness and the life of every home. They are indeed those elements that make a ‘house’ a ‘sweet home’. Can’t do without’em!
Space – I am stuck with this space conundrum every time I enter an under-construction building. There seems to be a gap here. There were homes in earlier days which advocated spatial freedom and now everyone seem to look for compact homes. Think about living in concrete boxes?! I understand the money-factor involved but some with enough and more are unwilling to go for a spacious place too. The heritage houses of south India are perfect examples of space management when it comes to homes.
Sunlight - Who wants to live in a cave or a scary house?! In Vasthu Shastra and Feng Shui, we would notice a simple yet striking similarity which encompasses the need for sunlight to flow throu…
