An interesting video about Yoga and the science behind it along with its benefits.
Today was a busy day. I took my niece to a newly opened Girias Children’s Explorium here in Bangalore. The name sounds like the movie title Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium, a movie I love. It had a combination of science and fun. Definitely not as big as the Exploratorium I visited in SFO. But still pretty impressive given the limited space. This was sort of a test run for when my other niece and nephew arrive here in a week. My niece loved this place and was reluctant to leave even after 2 hours. I was the one who was tired even though I didn’t do anything except take photographs and keep an eye on her.
When one of my close friends moved to another country he left all his books with me. And most of his books were from the authors Issac Asimov and Terry Pratchett. I haven’t read any books belonging to these authors, ever. Primary reason: Science fiction. I am not even interested in those movies in the first place. But he was trying to convince me to give it a try and read a couple of Issac Asimov and then judge. Same with Terry Pratchett. Too geeky for me I guess. But now that I don’t have a book that I have read whose title starts with the letter X, I guess I would go with one of Issac Asimov’s which I have with me, but haven’t read.
Genre: Non-fiction, Essay, Science
It is an essay. Now I am sure I am going to have this with me for ever and not read a single line. But to be honest, it wouldn’t kill me to try and read it. But again, I should get into that zone to even try that. It is a non-fiction and mostly related to science. Hmm.. (sigh) Why aren’t there any books which are starting with the letter X. Do you know of one which is fiction and which is also good? Let me know.
