  • The Natural Wonders of the World
    The Natural Wonders of the World
    William Shakespeare quoted,” One touch of nature makes the whole world kin”, how true was he. Nature has always loved the mankind. It is the mankind which has always tried to play with nature for his needs and convenience. But still the nature beholds a treasure to be explored. These treasures are the natural wonders of the world which are spread all across the universe. Getting bored with my monotonous routine, I and my friends decided to explore the Mother Nature and her wonders. We started our advent with Aurora Borealis or known as Northern Lights. It is really stunning to see that the lights streaks of light flicker across the Northern Hemisphere. No firework display can be more beautiful than this. There is no right time when the light phenomenon starts. But it is said that chances become brighter as one approaches the  [...]

    Holy Tree-nity
    It is expected that in the land of ‘La dolce vita’, everything is treated as if it were a means to a better, sweeter and fuller existence. The tiramisu tastes sweeter, the wine leaves a wonderful aftertaste and the memories linger long after the sights are long gone from your direct or peripheral vision. If the world is theatre, Italy is the pantomime, always grandiose and magnificent in its celebration of life and art. It is in other countries that people talk about reel life imitating real life, but it is only in Italy that you will find the architectural imitating the natural. It is the only way to describe the tree cathedral near the bustling city of Bergamo. The Italians have given us Raphael, Donatello, Leonardo da Vinci and Michaelangelo (and no, we are not, in fact, referencing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) amongst  [...]

  • Lighting the way
    Lighting the way
    I don’t know how to describe the Gurdon lights other than the fact that it seems other worldly and eerie, but the light is floating on a lot of nothingness in the middle of the air. It’s about 5 times larger than my fist, or so I guesstimate and I am both mystified and drawn in by it. I assumed I was crazy when I saw lights in the middle of nowhere but a quick chat with the locals tells me that I’m not the first to have seen this. The locals have always wondered exactly how these lights come about or what they are, and their stories abound in Arkansas. The single most dismissive explanation comes from Dr. Charles Leming at Henderson State University who believes that these lights are nothing more than reflected car headlights. Talk about taking away the mystique. But the good professor might have a point; all sources of light  [...]
