Randomness at its best

If I asked you to guess what this is, you might say it was abstract art by some artist.

But the truth is this was created by accident. In my office lift, the had tried to limit some floors of the lift by fixing a plastic panel on top of the numbers with fevicol [or some other glue].

But the randomness of the universe which caused this formation is awesome. Indeed this proves that chaos and randomness are a beauty to be admired.

A pinch of inspiration, a dash of enjoyment

I posted this earlier but it got deleted… so here it is again.

On Oct 2nd Gandhi Jayanthi, Artville conducted a live painting in Bangalore.

My friend and I ended up there by accident. We were just passing through when we came to know of the event. All these artists, amateurs and professionals painted from scratch. People
could just walk around them and see them work. It was inspiring to watch them work as well interesting to guess what they were trying to tell through their work.

And here are some snaps from that day.

I downloaded the WordPress app today. Its easier for me to use this on my tab than to switch on my laptop and go to all the trouble to go to the site. And I can create posts without net too. I can upload it when I get internet access. Great! I hope this will spur me into making more posts now.

The History of Crochet (and why we love it)

Aww Crochet

Love Lily

According to research, crochet developed most directly from Chinese needlework; an ancient embroidery known in North Africa, India, Persia, and Turkey, and reached Europe in the 1700s. The initial technique later evolved to what the French called “crochet in the air” at the end of the 18th century.  In the early 1800s, crochet began turning up in Europe and was given publicity by Mlle. Riego de la Branchardiere, who was known for her ability to take an old-style needle and bobbin lace design and turn it into crochet patterns that could easily be duplicated.  She published pattern books so that women everywhere could copy her designs.

So, what is it about crochet that’s so appealing?  Maybe it’s the classic everyday appeal that simultaneously offers a feminine character. Additionally, the craftsmanship and attention to detail is evident in crochet, which adds a certain delicacy to the pattern.  Crochet really…

The Race against time..er..you could say that

Its actually quite fun unless you have too much at stake..

I am talking about booking tatkal railway ticket on the internet. (tatkal ticket means you have extra seats which get unlocked on the day before your train which you have to book as soon as possible  or it gets filled up.) Kind of like a new level of a game… I never compared this to a game till today.

It starts in the morning at 7:30…everything is set. The computer is on, the net is connected, the site is opened. Then comes the wait till 8:00. Exactly at 8 every single person who needs a ticket gets started.

In our home we open 3 browsers(IE, Firefox and Chrome) simultaneously with different ID’s . Sometimes if the laptop is available even that is utilized. You fill everything up, you give the payment option and wait with pessimistic thoughts cluttering the mind.

  • will it get stuck or not
  • will the internet connection fail you as always or not
  •  will the bank decide to take out the money or not…

And most importantly

  • Did the ticket get booked or did you just lose money
  • Or did the ticket get booked but became wait listed ticket in the time you took to use internet banking.

Like I said…. if the ticket doesn’t matter it’s quite fun..but most often this is not the case.

The story usually ends in getting frustrated over lost money or ticket or both…The alternate ending which happens occasionally is getting the much desired ticket. if not immediately…atleast in awhile…

After all like we say in college…. ‘It Happens’… 🙂

Just think of how each one of us get connected. We don’t know each other…yet the competition which ensues is quite exciting in a very different way 😉

P.S. We got the ticket after much frustration and angst

1 Year to go

Will the world really end a year from now?

Honestly I really don’t care… if we have to die then lets…Am getting too tired of life.

Fire and Ice

BY ROBERT FROST

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.
