Paint it RED



 On a dreamy morning, I was thinking why we still use plastic enormously in our everyday lives. An idea bubble burst and disturbed my reverie. It said “Paint it RED, paint every plastic RED, RED means danger, RED could save us from a plastic epidemic” I turned around and thought aloud “Is it a stupid idea?” “No idea is stupid”, replied the husband.

I picked up the crushed red plastic wrapper and tucked it in my bag as I slowly saw her turn. She looked at me as if I were a demon.  She was licking her lollipop non-stop. I went closer to her and gently took the lollipop from her hands. She tried to grab it back but I took it further away from her. I then picked up the plastic from my bag and put it in the ground in front of her. I saw her staring at the plastic and then back at me. After a minute of strange silence, she picked the plastic up and ran away to her mother. I followed her and gave the lollipop to her mom and told her that her daughter was adorable.  I showed the little girl where the trash bin was and she smiled.

 
This could very well be my little campaign - The Paint It RED campaign, where we have every plastic out there painted red and do away with them in every possible way. If you think you have an appetite for such things, pitch in and we can step it up. I have an action plan to make it happen :)

  2. A fabulous idea, Rohini. Going green should be everybody's mantra. And plastic should simply be banned!

'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…
