Lunatic; an eye full of dreams ?

The word lunatic evolves from Latin lunaticus `moon-struck,' from luna `moon.' This term arose becaues it was thought that recurring attacks of madness were caused by phases of the moon. Today it means insanity.
Is thinking out of the box influenced by phases of the moon ? Maybe. I find myself brimming with tangential thought process during full moon. Am I lunatic:)
Or a dreamer.

The Ganges.Patna

At this place, the river ganges is probably more than three km's wide. Its an absolutely fascinating and humbling experience to stand here and watch the majestic body of water overwhelm you with its sheer infinite energy. To most of us, she is like our mother and is affectionately called "Ganga maieya".

Chachraha, mera gaon .

Our farmhouse at Chachraha, our "dalaan", the smallish 50'x50' pool or pokhar Papa got done for Dadi. We could see the snow capped Himalayas from our lookout "machaan" during early winter mornings..the snow would turn reddish as the sun rose..and then dissolve in the morning light. Posted by Picasa

"Mouse", the word, is associated with the
Sanskrit word "musa," derived from the root word, "mus," meaning
"to steal."

And that's what this guy was doing, stealing
watermelon cubes.

Caught red handed ?

Funny defination this .. "Grasshoppers that can migrate are also known as locusts". Funny critter too, has two small eyes on its face( ocelli) to avoid mid air collision with others travelling together, and two compound eyes to use when its on ground.
Maybe Lalu should take a clue from them while designing anti-collision mechanism for railways.
