Two more to a week

Tailing the same thread (part 1) , once i promised for a 'no extension', simply means i am just a homosapien. I believe and have to say, at least 'two' is tolerable.
Sit watching the moon, the light delights. Do the same at noon, invariably it blights.
to the point, two now.
To simplify Satyajit Ray. My faint knowledge on Oscars identified him only as a film director, until i Wiki-ed him this week to get the entire picture and ended up fainting.  The tall, talented auteur from bengal fell into filmdom drawing inspiration from italian neorealistic movie 'Bicycle thieves'(1948).  From there on, his storey grew heights to crown The Apu triology at the apex.  There was an amazing writer in him who spilled science in short stories.  You can find it difficult to elude his Feluda from a 80's kid's bag.  All said, we can argue, as Ray was born with all the rays of wisdom from his ancestry.  But what i feel, Silver or Ever-silver, everyone of us are born with a spoon in hand.  The make of it doesn't matter as long as we scoop it big.   

Who else is Binayak Sen.  Most of us are aware of this doctor's recent decade.  Sen, a largely known public health physician, is indeed a pediatrician and a product of CMC vellore. Civil liberties, human rights, sedition and conviction are a few terms google gathered under his name.  His works on health also dealt the hunger deaths in the underprivileged of Chattisgarh, arguably the Rice bowl of India.  As an amateur, i edit everything else, and bring you an editorial from THE LANCET which draws atleast a drop when you pierce.  If you are blessed with a Login Password, then tour through the recent INDIA SERIES from this weekly founded by Wakley.

To Tail, All is 'well' until we decide into which one to jump

TeA LeavEs # 6

The Freight Flawless alone flies.  This is my first ever hands on with FedEx, or any international courier for that matter.  A little over 2 kg thing is being pigeoned for the past 3 days, with a tag of a potential bollywood film title 'Indianapolis to India'.  The convenient part of it being the mail i received on day 1 with the tracking number hyperlinked.  Just one click, and it shows you with minutes precision, the weight of it and the wait for it.  Hassle free!  And for those who are just ready to suspect me, before you have a go, visit here for the cargo.  Its really not late.  U could also pen your name on a new one paying 30$ less.  Just have to be as lucky as i am. The Fright  Let me amend it further; Flawless and Fearless fly.  On that day, Lance Klusener was flawless.  Steve Waugh was fearless.  English summer '99 witnessed a day which portrayed which one of the two prevailed.  However faint it sounds, Faith is the nearest i choose for the word Fearless.  Faith …

Tea Leaves #8

Instant print
I may be old fashioned, 'digital is great, but papers are perfect'.  The love for instant cameras started from good old toddler days.  A portrait peeping out in a minute is an unmatchable joy.  If you are with me on this, then take these picks.
As the name suggests, 'Fujifilm instax mini 90 neo' is classic. The brown coloured piece is just what you wanted. Retro looks with a view finder, bulb exposure and quite a few modes, eyes in a party can't give a miss. 150$ won't burn your pocket too. Only trouble is that it lacks any digital capacity. You can't store anything, but to shoot and print. Also, mind, the cost per print can be 20 Indian rupees per picture!
My vote though is reserved for the upcoming ' Polaroid Snap' an instant and digital camera from a company that just revived itself from bankruptcy. This one will hit the stores in four colours, print using Zero-ink technology (seriously! no ink, but heat activation of colorized crys…

Tea leaves #7

Smartwatch I hope this title needs no introduction, at least after the much googled apple's announcement.  Two sizes, twenty models and nearly twenty thousand US dollars for a gold edition, apple is in its league for an April 24 release.  It is after all a watch that the Swiss doesn't give a miss. Tag Heuer signalled its intention of manufacturing an android luxury by Christmas. Period. But how many of us have heard of Pebble? They have already made two successful (really) smartwatches that run 7 days long without charging. (while apple, sony, samsung, moto 360 and all big boys could not make it to even second sun!).  Pebble time is their next gen colour screen model, to be rolled out in May-June for the Kickstarter backers. I will write about kickstarter some time later, but its okey for now to conclude saying, one such 179$ piece will soon get shipped to my address as well. 
Smart to watch I wasn't sure about the choice when I planned to watch The imitation game. But &quo…
