Public memory

NDTV's attempt to silence a lone blogger has united bloggers against the channel and Ms. Dutt. The blogosphere is buzzing with protests, and bloggers much more prolific and worthy than I have written extensively about it. I'd just like to ask one thing - how long before we forget this Mr. Kunte The same time it took us to forget 26/11, or the train blasts before that, or the Satyam scandal? The thing with public memory is that it is very short lived. Sooner or later, the rest of us will return to our normal lives. What happens to the ones who were actually affected by the issue?

Song in my head

Words are flying out like
Endless rain into a paper cup
They slither while they pass
They slip away across the universe
Pools of sorrow waves of joy
Are drifting thorough my open mind
Possessing and caressing me

Jai guru deva om
Nothing's gonna change my world

Images of broken light which
Dance before me like a million eyes
That call me on and on across the universe
Thoughts meander like a
Restless wind inside a letter box
They tumble blindly as
They make their way across the universe

Jai guru deva om
Nothing's gonna change my world

Sounds of laughter shades of life
Are ringing through my open ears
Exciting and inviting me
Limitless undying love which
Shines around me like a million suns
It calls me on and on across the universe

Jai guru deva om
Nothing's gonna change my world

Whoa boa!

Scientists have found fossils of 45-foot giant snakes in Colombia, and aptly named the species Titanoboa cerrejonensis. To provide some perspective, the average python measures about 20 feet in length. The Titan boa also weighed a whopping 1.25 tonnes, while the average anaconda weighs about 200 kg. Monster snake indeed!
