UPDATE, version 11.12!

It’s been a while since I update mine and visit yours. I’m sorry. My internet connection was down for a long time and I am very busy. Here are some activities which makes me a a road runner!

OVER TO CHAMPHAI, RIH DIL- I visit Champhai as a part of our Departmental study tour, destination Rih Dil (Lake) inside Myanmar, on the eastern border of Mizoram. 

The ride to Champhai was quite tiresome inside that ugly, big and uncomfortable MST bus. We boarded at Govt. Champhai College. Early next morning we were on the road again to Rih Dil. We cross the border to Myanmar, took pass for Rs. 10 each and hike towards our destination. We collect some water samples and the rest was fun. On the same day we return to Champhai and get one day rest to return home. Champhai itself offers special memories from my last visit way back in 1996.

            On the border to Myanmar some Indo-Myanmar trade activities were going on. The first thing I notice on Myanmar side was the number of liquor shops available. On that hike to Rih Dil I find out that my body was not fit. It was a matter of 3-4 kms hike, but halfway I run out of breath, body fatigue sets in, and have to rest for several times along the road. At the lake the first thing I did after reaching was drinking nice ice cold beer :).

OVER TO SUANGPUILAWN : I was detailed as a Micro-Observer in the recently concluded Mizoram Assembly election and posted at Suangpuilawn, located on

the northern part of Mizoram 140 kms from Aizawl. Suangpuilawn area is one of the Demanded area of the HPC and a place where an alleged kidnappings of MLA candidates happened on the 2004 elections. It is my first experience in this nature of duty in an election. Our duty was not as a part of the State election machinery, but a part of Central Government, to observe the proceedings of the general election procedures.

COLLEGE GOLDEN JUBILEE: At our college we celebrate Golden Jubilee throughout the year, organizing several functions. On the 10th & 11thday of this December we organized a grand finale and a closing function. I was a part of many sub committees in the organizing body, Decoration, refreshment, programme, etc, and was busy the whole week. Organising refreshment for 1500 people was a tiresome task. The functions went smoothly, but I was too busy to enjoy the fun of the celebration. And during these times I have organize exams for my students at IGNOU, write my PhD thesis.

    So, these days I am like a road runner, running up and down, work my ass tired and face a big life’s dillema, a  relationship and a broken internet line too. Haven’t have time to even take a hair cut for two weeks!,. Life goes on. So, all of you ma friends out there, sorry, I will try to keep you update as soon as possible. Here are some snaps.

The River

THE RIVER- Written by: - Victoria Shaw - Garth Brooks
You know a dream is like a river
Ever changin' as it flows
And a dreamer's just a vessel
That must follow where it goes
Trying to learn from what's behind you
And never knowing what's in store
Makes each day a constant battle
Just to stay between the shores...and

I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry
Like a bird upon the wind
These waters are my sky
I'll never reach my destination
If I never try
So I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry

Too many times we stand aside
And let the waters slip away
'Til what we put off 'til tomorrow
Has now become today
So don't you sit upon the shoreline
And say you're satisfied
Choose to chance the rapids
And dare to dance the tide...yes

There's bound to be rough waters
And I know I'll take some falls
But with the good Lord as my captain
I can make it through them all...yes

Yes, I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry
'Til the river runs dry.

When i was studying my masters i face life's Dilema. I used to have this album 'Roping the wind' by Garth brooks, presented to me by ma cousin. The above is one of the song on the album, which i particularly like and of course inspire me a lot and i like it . Sometimes in life, we have to dare to ride the rapids and dare to dance the tide.
I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry
Like a bird upon the wind
These waters are my sky
I'll never reach my destination
If I never try
So I will sail my vessel
'Til the river runs dry

Me, myself

When Jesus came into the coasts of Caesarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? …and there were many answers.

Sometimes I ask myself the same question, who am I? It’s not like an identity crisis, but sometimes we all need to see ourselves from the outside. So whom do others say about me? Once a friend told me I’m an arrogant son of a b****. Whom do you think I am?

My ayurvedic body types predict that I possess the following characters:

“changeability; unpredictability; - in size, shape, mood, and action moody; imaginative and impulsive; quick to grasp ideas and good at initiating things but poor at finishing them; energy fluctuates, with jagged peaks and valleysable; tolerant; comfort-loving, and peaceful”

My Zodiac sign (Pisces) also predicts the following characteristic traits.

  • Shy
  • Romantic
  • Trustworthy
  • Aloof
  • Dreamy
  • Creative
  • Understanding
  • Unrealistic
  • Impractical


  • Romance
  • Nature
  • Ambient music
  • Poetry
  • Mystical settings
  • Being loved / wanted
  • Freedom
  • Privacy


  • Noise
  • Crowds
  • Dirt & ugliness
  • Garish objects
  • Being reminded
  • Tight spaces
  • Authority
  • Revealing private life

On this friendship day, all my thoughts are concerned about me, and only me!.

Happy friendship day to all my friends in this life.

In dreams (Dreams do come true...)

I looked at her sleeping peacefully and admire her beauty, a sudden rush urge me to feel the warmth of her body; to hold her closer to mine....and then I find myself in the middle of the night pulling the rear end of my blanket !. Oh it was such a beautiful dream.

I kept on thinking if dreams come true. In life we dream on, our aims integrated into dreams. My dream was to get a job, get hitched around 25-27 , have kids and settle down. Years passed after sweet sixteen and I do get a job and dreams revolve. This time a more ambitious, and unknown realm, a lead ‘to become a good husbandwas on the cards. Now I face life's own puzzle and a fear; that I might not choose the one I love, kept gnawing me from the inside.

A quote from a friend said, “In life we can chose who to care for; chose the one to be with; but we can never choose the one to fall in love with”. So, the sweetness of my dream lies in the fact that I was with the one that I loved, whoever it was.

The wonders-our body

Last Saturday the father of our student died of a kidney failure and we went to his funeral. A conversation started from the kidneys and eventually many organs of our body, marveling the function of each. The kidneys, its function in urine formation, its importance, its workload and the amount of abuse it received each day. Without our kidney the body cannot remove dangerous substances inside our body fluid, and its failure eventually leads to death. The Creator, knowing its importance, makes a pair of them, identical and has the ability to function on their own. Marveled its architecture and wondered its creation. The same goes to every part of our body, our organs, our cells and their organelles.

We often speak of advances in science and technology, the computers with its ability, the nanotechnology and their implications. Yet, despite this advances, we cannot replicate, duplicate or imitate the role our organs. A simple example is the eye. The advances in camera technology with the many features and size of CCD’s , still we can’t reproduce the function of the eye, to create a vision sending image to the brain and project the image, for other organs to function. A simple explanation is that the sight of a Dominos pizza stimulates our taste buds to secrete saliva!.

Let me take you to another example, the functioning of the heart. The heart beats producing a lub-dub sound, distributing vital nutrients and gases to every corner of our body. You may say that scientist create an artificial heart, and also pacemakers to help defect heart, you are true to the fact, my fried. But what I want to remind you is, none of these function perfectly and neither last.

When we look at the cells, each with their own organelles, tiny and microscopic, you will wonder their marvelous architecture and their division of labor. We can see these cells with a thousand magnifications and sometimes even require the highest resolution of an electron microscope, with more than a lakhs magnification (Just imagine a tiny ant with thousands magnification). Again inside each organelle lies the internal structure with their specific function. Failure of one organelle may lead to many diseases.

Our body organs sometimes fail. A perfect system gone wrong, yet we are unable to repair the damage. Sometimes we can compromise with damage limitation, but not repair. Let me list a few- Diabetes, Cancer, nerve failure, brain damage, deaf, etc. not to mention the many disease we inherited from our ancestors!

Stop here and think who created our body? You will wonder and admire the architect, who creates each and every human with tender love and care. To walk this walk of life, we have the responsibility on ourselves, to tender care and love each and every organ of our body, the power is ours.

Palm Sunday without palm!

On Palm Sunday children from Sunday schools taking the streets and shout together -

“Hosanna; blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord. Blessed be the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord: Hosanna in the highest” (Mark 11:9-10).

They raised the palm in their hands as high as they can. After taking the streets they gathered at their own local church to have a mass. A beautiful scene to announce the glory of the highest, a slogan shouted in the days of Jesus, by the crowd in Jerusalem when Jesus entered there as a king. Palm Sunday became one event that children do not miss. A special day for the children to announce Jesus is the King. In fact you can see beautiful pictures of children taking the street, posted by j (

A point I want to mention, by making a bold statement- ‘palm Sunday without palm’ is due to many environmental and economic concern. Let us consider the fact that this number of children across the state will require that amount of palm. The cost of a palm leaves for one morning, which will then turn into a waste. The amount of green tree we have to fell for one Sunday morning. The amount of oxygen they could have produced when alive. The amount of Carbon dioxide they would have consumed knowing the fact that our carbon dioxide level is the highest during february to march each year due to jhum burning. The matter of the fact is that we do not cultivate palm for this occasion and rely on the wild stock. How long will this stock last?

I googled fanatically to find out what type of palm tree we use for this occasion and find out that its scientific name is Caryota urens. They are commonly called solitary fishtail palm, toddy palm, wine palm or jaggery palm. They are found in many tropical countries.
( for more information on details and uses refer to- ).

So, considering the fact that global warming is an issue and the responsibility lies with every individual on this planet to safe the world by planting more trees. It is time to consider our ways of life so as to limit the damage to nature.

(Special thanks to Tluanga and BNA MZU for information on palm tree)

(Bamboo Flowering & Famine Combat Scheme)

As reported by the local newspaper Vanglani, dated 13th march 2008, a report from the Assembly session extract, the amount of money spent on BAFFACOS was Rs.12036. Lakhs. The chief Minister of Mizoram, Mr Zoramthanga added that the amount sanctioned for Baffacos is Rs. 12,500.00 lakhs. The amount distributed among various Department under Govt. of Mizoram are shown in the table. BAFFACOS is a pilot project financed by the Government of India to combat famine related to Bamboo flowering in Mizoram which happens every 50 years. During the last bamboo flowering, in the year 1957 records suggest that there was a widespread famine throughout the state and the Government of India and the then State Government, Assam failed to address the situation is one reason which led to the uprising among the locals to fight for Independence from India.

Bamboo flowers, it flowers every 50 years bearing seeds which will be the next generation bamboo. It’s a natural phenomena, the process of nature to refresh the genetic composition of the bamboo species. This genetic programme inside the bamboo leads to the expression of certain genes producing proteins and activate some hormones to trigger bamboo to flower. Certain genes are then activated after flowering to die, a mass suicide, in scientific term we call it apoptosis or cell death. It is a natural process occurring in every organism. A simple example is our blood RBC’s which die every 120 days or 3 months.

A widespread coincidence or common phenomena occurs in the last bamboo flowering period. There is a rapid increase in the rat populations which destroys all the cultivated areas in the state, renders the people helpless and starves. It is not known that this was a related or separate phenomenon. Is the state unlucky that the bamboo flowering coincides with mass migration of rat species? What type of rat species? We don’t know?

The sad fact is that the Government of Mizoram with this amount of money do not set up Scientific investigation team to look into the very much needed biology of the bamboo flowering. Stopping the bamboo flowering is out of question, since it is a natural process, but the nature and effects can and must be studied for future generations. Much needed investigation are the biology of the bamboo which flowers. Isolating the part, the genes, the proteins, the hormones and the nature of the genetic composition are a must. In this Genetic age, we must look into the genetic perspective to understand the biology of the bamboo. Secondly, the ecology. Since bamboo is the dominant population of many forest in the state, it is important to study their biology, in terms of their mass death and its effect. A mass death will have adverse effects on the Ecology of the region, fertility of the soil, the composition of many mammals, birds, reptiles etc which are dependent on the bamboo forest for their survival. Investigation must be done on the regeneration capacity of the bamboo and vice versa.

There are many aspects which have to be studied, which for a non science background will just be boring. The fact remains, which is that bamboo flowering needs more scientific investigation. But as shown by the money distribution, no money, not a single peny have been allocated to investigate this incident, which in fact is one of the greatest failure of this project, BAFFACOS.


Piscean quality
Imaginative and sensitive, Compassionate and kind, Selfless and unworldly, Intuitive and sympathetic ....
On the dark side….
Escapist and idealisticSecretive and vagueWeak-willed and easily led..

What would it mean to be one!. . I googled and find many so called ’star signs’ which as a christians do not have faith in it/them. But, nevertheless these qualities which mention in the star signs, tends to be correct, not all, but some. As a christian we have to remeber that power comes from darker side. Power itself is the reason for the conflict in heaven.

A new experience

The year starts in a good note. The fact that i will be in a course in one of the best University in the world spurs an excitement. But the matter of the fact that the fear of not living upto the expectations make me hesitate a bit. As i entered the course i soon find out the diversity of participants all over India and Sri Lanka. It was a good experience to interact with all the participants in the course.One of the most wonderful experience come from the course. The thirst for knowledge is one of the most envying aspect, which we lack in many places. The second in the input of intelectual ideas in the current scenario, the analysis and the discussion forum in which we play a part. This, apart from the other experiences would, i think, makes it memorable


'Love is passion, obsession, someone you can’t live without. If you don’t start with that, what are you going to end up with? Fall head over heels. I say find someone you can love like crazy and who’ll love you the same way back. And how do you find him? Forget your head and listen to your heart. I’m not hearing any heart. Run the risk, if you get hurt, you’ll come back. Because, the truth is there is no sense living your life without this. To make the journey and not fall deeply in love - well, you haven’t lived a life at all. You have to try. Because if you haven’t tried, you haven’t lived”
This is a quotation from the movie- Meet Joe Black. What struck me is the fact that, will i find someone whom i love like crazy and who’ll love me back in the same way. In this material world we look for security, in terms of wealth and sometimes emotions. The quote that takes me away goes - Forget your head and listen to your heart. I’m not hearing any heart. Run the risk, if you get hurt, you’ll come back. The head says no, but the matter of the fact is the heart cant lie an neither the feelings. This.. to me is love. You must have a definition on your own, but for me, as of today, this is my love.

Mother earth is deteriorating. Our earth is getting warmer and warmer. Eleven of the last twelve years (1995 -2006) rank among the 12 warmest years in the instrumental record of global surface temperature (since 1850). These trends in global warming does not only affect the rich, but we the poorest too. Unlike a disease it has no specification and no target at all. Global average sea level rose at an average rate of 1.8 [1.3 to 2.3] mm per year over 1961 to 2003. The rate was faster over 1993 to 2003, about 3.1 [2.4 to 3.8] mm per year. The melting of the polar ice caps, the Himalayas threaten the source of the greatest reservoir of fresh water in the form of ice, if they melt away. Such a tragedy would increase the sea level, drowning many cities, destroying millions of cultivated lands, extreme floods in the rivers followed by a series of droughts, extreme climate, extreme cold and heat waves.
Impact of global warming on human health.
A report in the journal Science in June 2002 described the alarming increase in the outbreaks and epidemics of diseases throughout the land and ocean based wildlife due to climate changes. One of the authors points out that, “Climate change is disrupting natural ecosystems in a way that is making life better for infectious diseases.”
Global warming will have many impacts on human health
The most obvious impact of global warming will be the direct effects: a warmer planet will experience more extreme heatwaves. As seen in Europe in 2003, heatwaves often lead to an increase in the number of human deaths, particularly in temperate countries where people are often not accustomed to very hot weather and where houses and other infrastructure are not designed to cope with it. It is estimated that there are currently about 1100 heat-related deaths per year.
Most computer models generated by scientists indicate that the future climate will be more variable than in the past, and that droughts and floods will be more severe. Some of the health effects of weather-related disasters, in addition to the immediate death and injury to people and damage to property, include:
* increases in psychological stress, depression, and feelings of isolation amongst people affected by natural disasters;
* decreases in nutrition due to poorer agricultural yields caused, for example, by prolonged drought and problems of food distribution;
* increases in disease transmission due to a breakdown in sewerage and garbage services. For example, cholera is one disease that thrives in such situations, particularly when flooding causes the contamination of drinking water by sewerage systems.
*Infectious diseases-Many infectious diseases are dependent on vector organisms, which are sensitive to environmental factors and therefore will be affected by global warming. Biological modelling under various climate scenarios suggests a widening of the potential transmission zone of some disease-causing pathogens and their vectors, such as mosquitoes. Food- and water-borne diseases are also susceptible to climate change

Role of everyday men to prevent global warming

Get Educated: Educate yourself about Global warming. You won’t be able to tell other people about it if you don’t have knowledge of the topic yourself!
Change a light. Replacing a regular light bulb with a compact fluorescent one saves 150 pounds of carbon dioxide each year.
Drive less. Walk, bike, carpool, take mass transit, and/or trip chain. All of these things can help reduce gas consumption and one pound of carbon dioxide for each mile you do not drive.
Recycle more and buy recycled. Save up to 2,400 pounds of carbon dioxide each year just by recycling half of your household waste
Check your tires. Properly inflated tires mean good gas mileage. For each gallon of gas saved, 20 pounds of carbon dioxide are also never produced.
Use less hot water. It takes a lot of energy to heat water. Reducing the amount used means big savings in not only your energy bills, but also in carbon dioxide emissions. Using cold water for your wash saves 500 pounds of carbon dioxide a year, and using a low flow showerhead reduces 350 pounds of carbon dioxide. Make the most of your hot water by insulating your tank and keeping the temperature at or below 120.
Avoid products with a lot of packaging. Preventing waste from being created in the first place means that there is less energy wasted and fewer resources consumed..
Plant trees. A single tree can absorb one ton of carbon dioxide over its lifetime.
Turn off electronic devices when not in use.
Stay informed. stay informed about environmental issues, and share your knowledge with others.

We, as an individual, have the chance to fight for our future generations, and must act fast. The trend is changing, are we going to watch our mother earth die before our very own eyes!

Tonight's Cold

Tonight i felt the coldness of the night. A chill ran through my spine. Though I am not afraid, nor scared, all the warmth of life deserted my body and yet physically, I’m not sick. A sound of music then ran through my ears, maybe my heart; Garth brooks singing ‘Unanswered prayers’. As a Christian I am a believer, not with a high degree of conviction. Many times I laid myself in the hands above and find shelter in the comfort of his love. Many times i wandered far from him too, lost, sinned, ran away. Asked myself why such a swing in life. I felt the unexplained chill.
