Parents are driving us to despair, say students in survey

Newspaper View-DNA E-Paper 

.....what a tragedy!!
Wonder when people realize that value based education CANNOT be attained through a marks-only target effort.
The kids of this generation are gifted with excellent brains due to their parents genes- only to be suppressed of their talents in the name of Marks based evaluation system rather than a skill enhancing education.

Tutions, tutions from class I itself... Tutions are killing Talent!!!


"All work & no play" is making all the Jacks as dull as possible. No games, no sports, no variety, no activities, no extra-curricula, no social interaction, no application, no discussions, no skill buildup..... just the rote learning of a meaningless syllabus that is designed to be history rather than state-of-art present day Technology........
Sad !!

Solar Eclipse 15 Jan 2010

The Solar Eclipse creates some peculiar patterns in nature.
Noneed to make a pin-hole camera....Nature provides billions of these natural Pin-hole cameras.....every tree, every plant is a camera andrecreates the Eclipsesd Sun on the ground, on the walls - everywhere!!

Am lucky to see 4 solar Eclipses in my life. The first time I took B&W pics of these very same between-the-leaves Pin-hole camera images on an Agfa 110 !

Todays pics are from my N95 without magnification. I used an eclipse filter sent to me by a science organisation called Chintana.

I wonder how many people saw the real thing personally , other than the live TV broadcast. They probably missed a chance of a life time!!
