Bus Hangers..!!

When the Japanese mend broken objects, they aggrandize the damage by filling the cracks with gold.  They believe that when something's suffered damage and has a history it becomes more beautiful.  ~Barbara Bloom

There are times we just dont look upon the things that help us stand, that support us and help us to stay on our feet.

Its a Cat's Life..!!

In ancient Egypt cats were sacred animals, with Bast often depicted in cat form, sometimes taking on the warlike aspect of a lioness. Domestic cats were spread throughout much of the rest of the world during the Age of Discovery, as they were carried on sailing ships to control shipboard rodents and as good-luck charms.Several ancient religions believed that cats are exalted souls, companions or guides for humans, that they are all-knowing but are mute so they cannot influence decisions made by humans. In Japan, the Maneki Neko is a cat that is a symbol of good fortune. Although there are no sacred species in Islam, some writers have stated that Muhammad had a favorite cat, Muezza. He is reported to have loved cats so much that "he would do without his cloak rather than disturb one that was sleeping on it". Freyja—the goddess of love, beauty, and fertility in Norse mythology—is depicted as riding a chariot drawn by cats.

 According to a myth in many cultures, cats have multiple lives. In many countries, they are believed to have nine lives, but in some Spanish-speaking regions they are said to have seven lives,while in Turkish and Arabic traditions the number of lives is six. The myth is attributed to the natural suppleness and swiftness cats exhibit to escape life-threatening situations. Also lending credence to this myth is the fact that falling cats often land on their feet, using an instinctive righting reflex to twist their bodies around. Nonetheless, cats can still be injured or killed by a high fall.

This was my most loved cat.. Moosa..!! with a coat that looked liked that of a Tiger (lighter shade) and a fluffly tail.. He was the most handsome and yet the most laziest cat I had ever seen. I miss him very much. Everyday :|

may his soul rest in peace.!!!

Hide and seek behind a cloud
A rainbow laughs aloud

The sun shines oh so proud

Because of you ~

You’re my joy and my song

My whole life long

Together we belong

I still have you ~

My sister…my beautiful sister

You’re my best friend

Until the end

~ excerpts of a poem i found while surfing google.

Lo behold People..!!! My elder-kid sister :)

The squirrel next door sorry next tree..!!

Out all of all the animals that thrive in busy suburban areas, squirrels undoubtedly have to be one of the cutest and most interesting.  If you’re fortunate enough to see these critters roaming around your sidewalk or backyard you might take how fascinating squirrels are for granted.  


Squirrels are found in TONS of different countries across almost the entire planet.  In fact, there are only two continents that don’t have squirrels – Antarctica and Australia.

Even though they are relatively small in size, squirrels are absolutely phenomenal jumpers.  In the right conditions, a full grown squirrel can jump as far as twenty feet!  This is because squirrels have extremely powerful back legs that enable them to push off of objects and leap incredible distances.

The hind legs of all squirrels are double jointed.  This adaptation allows them to nimbly scramble up and down trees with ease.

Some squirrels can fall as far as 100 feet without sustaining any type of injury – they sometimes can use their fluffy tail as a sort of make shift parachute!

Squirrels can easily eat their entire body weight every week (usually only around 1.5 pounds).

A male squirrel can detect a female squirrel in heat from up to a whole mile away!  Females usually give birth to between 2-4 baby squirrels every mating season.

A squirrel can actually sometime see things that are completely behind them.  This is due to the unique way that their eyes are positioned on their heads.

Vinca Rose.

Vinca Rose

The species has long been cultivated for herbal medicine and as an ornamental plant. In traditional Chinese medicine, extracts from it have been used to treat numerous diseases, including diabetes, malaria, and Hodgkin's disease.The substances vinblastine and vincristine extracted from the plant are used in the treatment of leukemia.
This conflict between historical indigenous use, and recent patents on C.roseus-derived drugs by western pharmaceutical companies, without compensation, has led to accusations of biopiracy.
It can be dangerous if consumed orally. It can be hallucinogenic.

This picture isnt of Vinca rose. I found this wild flower on  a trek, very similar to it and hence clicked it. This picture reminds me of the Microsoft's pre installed wallpaper
