A thoughtful post…

Data, the center point of Digital Revolution has become an Oil-like commodity which India had got plenty on its own. But are we really equipped to handle the new Data-bloom in the digital space?

[Reblog] Sweden’s entry for Eurovision this year is quite fantastic… — alfitude

Sweden selected it’s entry for this year’s Eurovision last night. I think it was a well-deserved track. The production is just so slick – you wouldn’t think this was all done live! Benjamin Ingrosso

Skanda Vale – Small Place, Big Impact

Finally, got around to writing my travelogue about this heavenly place that we visited recently. Please find the post on my travel blog.

Memoirs of my travels

During the August Bank Holiday, we made a short trip to a place called Skanda Vale. It is situated in a remote place in Carmarthen, a south west Welsh county. Due to engineering works the travel to Carmarthen was split into three parts. First was the Great Western Railway journey from London Paddington to New Port.

Voices is a new occasional series in which Americans express their feelings in the wake of the presidential election and what many perceive to be a drastic change in course for America, and not for the better. Today, we’re again stepping outside America, this time to India.


I am not sure how many of you know me, but I am an Indian woman, currently residing in Bangalore, who isn’t very much interested in the statistics of politics, but definitely interested in the impact it has on the common man. In India we follow a parliamentary democracy, and for…

why you should read

Hello my lovely friends!

I know, I know, most of you are probably rolling your eyes, wondering why I’m even bothering to post this!

As some of you may know, I also write for The Odyssey Online. This is “a social discovery platform committed to democratizing content creation while personalizing discovery” This past week, I listed some scientifically proven reasons as to why everyone should read! If you guys want to check it out and share on facebook, twitter or reddit, click here. Otherwise, enjoy this quick, fun article as to how reading is beneficial in every type of way.

This summer, I created a book blog in hopes to keep myself accountable in reading and so that I could occupy myself with a project. It’s only been three months since I’ve begun, and my love for books have grown along with my TBR (to be read) list. I…
