Fall in love is a kind of phenomenon.
It can’t explain,it just happens.
trying to explain it,will spoil it.
And I think………..
better to experience it,
Accept it unconditionally.
it is not based on rational thoughts.
it gives beautiful moments ,feelings,
it is not fair to run away from it,
because of its illogicality.
when I fell in love…….
Many asked me”why, that lady?
your judgment must be impaired,
you must be mad…it is suicidal”
They may be right,but…
I am grateful for the unexplainable feeling.
I can feel it as beautiful,soulfilling ache.
And I am just accepting it…getting immersed into it,
like a butterfly into the flickering flame…..
Can anything stop me away from the flame?.
Michael Rogge,originally from Amsterdam,who was staying in Hongkong and in japan,visited Kerala,70 years back ,video graphed this beautiful video,which vividly picturise various aspects of using parts of cocconut tree for producing various products.Kerala, located on the Southwestern tip of India, enjoys unique geographical features that have made it fondly referred to as ‘God’s Own Country’, Kerala was selected by the National Geographic Traveller as one of the 50 destinations of a lifetime and one of the thirteen paradises in the world.
Kerala is actually named after the coconut tree with “Kera” meaning Coconut tree and “Alam” meaning land so means “Land of Coconut Trees”. In Kerala, the coconut tree is called as “Kalpa Vriksham” which essentially means all parts of a Coconut tree is useful some way or other The trees have many uses; their leaves are used to make sheds, baskets, and doormats, the husk for making coir, the shell for making ladles and spoons, and fruits used for making hair oil or for eating. Coconut is a staple ingredient in many Kerala dishes and coconut oil is widely consumed and its sap used to make drinks such as coconut toddy (an alcoholic beverage not as strong as wine.Coconut is also used for making coconut paste which is essential for making traditional curryes. Its wood for making furniture.

Just a word … India has recently broken its own world record by planting 66 million trees in just 12 hours in a bid to honour a pledge made at the Paris Climate Change Conference. More than 1.5 million volunteers turned out one Sunday between 7am and 7pm to plant the massive number of tree […]

(converting neuronal activity into sounds)
The Well-Tempered Brain” took place on 13 August in Summerhall exhibition space in Edinburgh, Scotland. Here Sasha Kagansky, and Sergey Kostyrko, Mark Matthes, and Anton Koch decided collaborate with Paul Roach who has previously set up experiment with neurons grown on a microchip, and made open his Big Data set.
Together with a team of music artists the scientists could experience the energizing capacity of interdisciplinary research at the crossroads of neuroscience, computer science and art. Equipped with computers, EEG sensors, and synthesizers the event gave opportunity to explore what thinking sounds like. “A group of neurons can be imagined like a group of instruments within an orchestra”, explains molecular biologist Sasha Kagansky. While neurons interact and communicate with each other in the human brain, they create electric pulses. These pulses, stored in Big Data sets, can be used in various ways. While graphs are a common way to showcase brain activity, the active neurons’ data sets can also be turned into sound.
For this process of sonification, electric signals from cortical and striatal nerve cells grown on a micro chip are recorded in separate digital channels resulting from corresponding electrodes.
Using different software and hardware solutions, the digital-analog converter allows to pre-process the data in real-time (linearize, filter, extract slices, change the time-scale and etc.) and represent it in the form of electric current. After that, patch cables are used to redirect the flow of electricity from one module to another, to multiply signals and to group different modules together for creating performance-oriented system based on the oscillators, the amplifiers, the filters, the mixers, the multipliers, the ADSR generators and the ring modulators. Finally, this approach helps to organize the electric signals from nerve cells into complex sound structures and music compositions.

Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder.But,in the case of human beings, beauty depends on symmetry.If the face is symmetrical in various planes,that face will be beautiful. Face Mate are those with almost similar features on face, and there is high chances that such people will be matching mentally too…..(my own opinion!) . According to Face Mate concept, we’re subconsciously attracted to people with facial features similar to our own, and so there are sites in internet,which uses facial recognition technology to pair up lookalikes.
According to Sigmund Freud,there is something called transference,a phenomenon characterized by unconscious redirection of feelings from one person to another.When you see a person with facial features similar to our own,your good or positive feelings about you,yourself, will be unconsciously redirected to the other person. That seems to imply we all want to date opposite sex versions of ourselves—find Your Fellow Narcissist doesn’t have quite the same ring to it, though.

Orchids As the third bloom slowly opens its dainty petals
An angel peeps out, beckoning to me
To bask in its beauty, spraying a divine fragrance
A fragrance hitherto unknown, tingling my five senses.
A delicate fragrance caressing me softly
Like the kisses you shower on my face
A fragrance sweeping over like laughing waves
Speckles of love, dancing all around.
A fragrance, like heavenly music from an angel’s harp
Whispering love-notes, only for mine ears
Carrying me swiftly into another world
Filling my soul with droplets of your feelings.
A fragrance, tantalizing my taste-buds
A taste so pure and tender
A taste which makes me hunger for more
Of a love so sweet, delicate and sublime. […]

-worth reading the poem by angelbeams-
In a teeny wee valley right across the mountains
Dwelt a field of stardusts, their petals dainty and shiny
So smooth, so soft, so delicate were they
Bobbing up and down, laughing, sheer joy spreading.
Seven petals each one had, creamy white the colour
Stems smooth and glistening, leaves tiny bright green
And when the sun shone down on them
A white carpet they seemed,so pure,fit for a queen[…]

I was searching for a friend,
with whom I can share anything,
who is nonjudgmental,with a deep perception on life and world,
yesterday I met her in a library ….
we were searching for a book”Real Love”
There were only a single copy of it,
And,We planned to read it together.
The experience was beautiful,
enriched us with so much insights,
and our conversations were
with perfect synchronization
like earth and moon
“Problem with our life is our protecting behaviors,
It kills truth…..it force us to be pretenders,
And we forget what we really needed….”
I said” I was too late to meet you”
She just whispered…..
“nothing is too late”
And looked at me with a romantic smile,
Her gaze was sharp ….into my soul…..
and she put my soul on fire,
which is still burning with a passion for her company,
