Courtesy: WikipediaTwo stalwarts of  South Indian cinema are his products – Kamal Haasan and Rajinikanth.Veteran film director K. Balachander  breathed his last yesterday evening (23.12.2014) due to age-related problems. He is 84. He left a rich legacy behind him.  In  his  marathon film career of 45 years  which was started as screenwriter, Balachander is man behind the successful careers of so many South Indian actors and technicians. All his stories are weaved around middle-class families.  He has a knack of  identifying talent which can be better reflected by the fact that he introduced so many talented artists and technicians to the Cinema world.Read more »...

For the last four days, Delhi is under the grip of biting cold.  Today by the time of writing this post which is mid-afternoon at at 14:01 pm, the temperature is chilling at 16° C.  Normal life in Delhi is out of sync for the last four days as day temperatures fell suddenly. I stopped going to my office on autorickshaw and using the Delhi Metro instead for commute.The severe cold has torn apart normalcy in Delhi and made work life more drowsy.  No doubt that I am quite enjoying the warmth of underground metro station  near to my work point. Mother Earth is so great that its lap is always warm.  Perhaps due to this, the passing stream beneath  a river or tank is always warm even in win...

To live long is not easy that  too in a healthy body and mind. Only few are blessed.How you perceive life that determines your forward years.  History reveals that those who give credence to health  and emotional life have lived long.  First of all, you must have vigour to live and when that fire douses, you become  like a deadwood even if you stay in the body !The life of centenarians offers so much wisdom.Since, my childhood days, I used to closely watch the lives of aged people, especially those who live longer like my grandmother who lived above 80 years.Read more »...

Yogi VemanaHis small verses in vernacular Telugu are so popular in Andhra Pradesh, India.  They are simply not poems but are snippets of wisdom.  Being a proud Andhraite, it is my bounden duty to introduce great people of Andhra to my blogger world.  Though somebody might have written about him, the story from different minds come in different hues.bEING  spiritual means wake up to the reality of life.  For some people, it comes instantly and for some others, it is a treacherous path. There is an adage in Telugu that a 'bhogi is bound to become yogi'  in course of time.   Vemana's life is a journey from 'bhogi' to 'Yogi'.Read more »...

BookWhen you update yourself with latest scientific developments, you get a jaw-dropping revelations which slide you into more astonishment. Nobel laureate Max Planck once said that science can't solve the ultimate mystery of nature. And that is because, in the last analysis, we ourselves are part of nature and therefore part of the mystery that we are trying to solve. But that can't stop us from doing scientific research which is taking us to new frontiers.The book "The Universe inside you' by Brian Clegg is such a minefield of scientific information that would surge your scientific temper. Irrespective of stream you studied in your academics , it is a book that must be rea...

We have books separately on science and humanities. In fact there is no such division and it is made for our convenience in understanding. Imagine a book is in front of you knitting  everyday science and humanities together as an interesting volume. The same happened here. An author caught your imagination and wrote a book  answering  to all haunting questions !The book is US's National BestSeller. New York Times described it "Destined to become a modern classic of science writing'.Bill Bryson's book " A short history of nearly everything' is a book which must adorn your personal library as it has a treasure trove of information relevant to current needs.Read ...

If you want to know what the science did so far to humanity, you must read this interesting book. The science here is explained in clearest terms. It is not a simple casual read and you must come back and forth to answer some of the curious questions the children ask us on science.The book explains in simple prose on space, time and evolution laced with humour and clever thought experiments. You get very straight answers to some of the baffling questions like How old is the Universe ? What causes tsunamis ? What was the first man, or woman ?Writing a difficult concept in simple prose is not easy and it demands tremendous mental energies. When you write science for common folks, the task beco...

One piece of news on 30th of last month (Nov. 2014) in  a prominent English Daily hit me very hard.   It was an incident that occurred in Delhi  the previous day where one juvenile killed a young neighbour boy named Ganesh  when he failed to get  ransom from the boy's father.  The intention to kidnap the boy was to get money to purchase an iPhone and lead a lavish lifestyle.If we go into the details, the juvenile stabbed the boy to death and to confirm it he slit his throat.  He made a call to the boy's father with a stolen phone of another neighbour.  After the barbarous act, the juvenile returned home and cleverly washed his clothes to hush up the episode.Read more »...

Most of folks in India may not know him but in America if you ask anyone, he/she would  tell his success story.  He is a simple janitor (the guy standing in front of Gate in a big restaurant in cities).  But he rose to the pinnacle of success by  helping people in realizing their potential.I read his much-acclaimed book ''Awaken the Giant within'' in 2005 which is an interesting discourse on 'personality development.  He offers so many interesting tips to us and one should not have missed to read it.The leading America's business magazine, Forbes in its website says that Tony Robbins is one of the 'Top 200 Business Gurus' in 2003 and reaching over 4 milli...

Ever since, I started blogging, one trait I earned is paying attention literally to everything I do.  The goal is obvious : To get the stuff   for my blog posts. Here, no commercial interests that dictate my desire, but simply to share things from my lens/view point.I have no hesitation to say that I share the same vision like Google Founders Larry Page and Sergy Brin where the information should power each individual on this planet.  This motto is the  prime driver  when I first mooted the idea to start a blog and KNOWEB, the acronym for Knowledge Web is born out of that  more than three and half years ago.   The  "O" in KNOWEB symboliz...

When I watched a 3 minute youtube video to write the story  of  my friend who participated in the recently concluded Airtel Delhi Half Marathon on 23rd November, 2014, the visuals of event exuberated my mood.The object of any such marathons is to raise the awareness on health and it is the need of the hour for  a country like India which has the highest youth population in the world. The motto of  the  organisers is to inspire the youth, the main target group to raise their fitness levels.But in this event, more than youth,  it attracted  middle-aged people and one among them is a Mr. Ravi, 50.With his wiry frame but radiant eyes, fully combed envious black  hair,  Ravi  is a fitne...
