Chicken or the Egg? It’s Chicken says British Scientists

Are you still perplexed with the age old question, which came first, the chicken or the egg?

Well, British scientists have an answer for you. They say, and with confidence, it’s chicken.

So, here we are with scientific and philosophical mystery solved. Thanks to the researchers at Sheffield and Warwick universities. Daily Mail newspaper must also be congratulated for disseminating the information.

How did they prove it?

The scientists claim that they have found protein only in a chicken’s ovaries, which is essential to form the egg. The egg can only exist when supported by a chicken, who keeps it inside.

There’s nothing to argue and prove now! 😛

Deregulation of Fuel Prices by UPA

Amidst the euphoria created by IMF projecting India’s growth at 9.4% during 2010, there’s a dark side as well. The UNDP shows that 320 million Indians  live under extreme poverty.

68 infants per thousand die while the infant mortality rate is 93 per 1000 births, below 5 years.

Well, there are other shocking statistics as well. However, despite all this, the UPA has deregulated the fuel prices. When people are reeling under tremendous economic stress, taking this step is totally unjustified. As the news came in, I was sure that its ripple effect would devastate the common man. And I was right, since the prices of essential commodities are sky rocketing in wake of this.

It is the responsibility of the government to protect its citizens.

I Was Rich, Just a Week Ago

Sweet Home

Last week, when I went to purchase vegetables, I said to my wife, ‘dear please keep Rs.500/- only’. She obeyed, to my surprise. Anyway, as it is our habit to explore the market, understand every vegetable vendor, scrutinize every vegetable, before taking the final call, we did the same. Rs.413/- were invested for the forthcoming week. We also purchased some fruits, though keeping distance from some of the elite fruits.

However, this week, when I said to my wife, dear please keep Rs.500/- only, she starred at me. She gave me threatening looks. “You say that you read newspapers daily. You also say that you know everything from wars to football matches, then don’t you know the prices this week”?.

As I am always of the opinion that man, if unable to satisfy a woman must justify the man, retaliated that she is not aware of the prices. I said that we will avoid fruits this week and thus the amount dictated is appropriate.

She smiled, as usual and we went to the market. Interestingly, I always carry a traveler’s bag to buy vegetables, I did the same, as usual.

I saw people smiling at me. They said, it’s OK that you have come with this bag, but can you really fill it as usual. I understood the whole story. I was no longer a rich man now. My wife is suave otherwise it would have been really difficult for me to justify at this point of time.

July 5, 2010 Bharat Bandh

Bharat Bandh was called on July 5, 2010. Opposing the price rise, the bandh remained successful in almost all parts of India. Although, there were some incidents of violence, the purpose behind the bandh, as envisaged by the non-Congress political parties, remained highly successful. The present Government of India must  realize the fact that it is becoming hard for the common man to sustain his life. It becomes obligatory to remind here that Congress came to power swearing by this very common man.

Who is a Common Man?

You must have heard a lot these days about this common man. After all, I ventured into the vicinities of Delhi to know about this phrase, Common Man. Common Man, as the phrase suggests, is very common. Moreover, it is becoming more common to find this common man, especially under the rule of Congress, which took office in 2008 perhaps, if I am correct.  In its second term, the Congress has proved that it is capable of doing anything. The party has showed that it is capable of making an uncommon man a common man.

Hats off to the INC!

Govt Must Do Something To Stop Honour Killings

Honour crimes are on rise in India. The number of such incidents is increasing significantly. There are some states, which are deliberately pushing the issue in corner. This is to gain political or retain their current political stature. Government of India must do something at the earliest to prevent such incidents. The right to chose relations and marriage partner is constitutional and must be obeyed.

Indian Classical Music – Performers are Better Teachers

While I deliver music classes in Noida, I notice interesting things during music teaching sessions.

As we know that Indian Classical Music is a rich source of finding peace within oneself, it is always better to explore the Raga on your own. Usually, vocal music teachers do not stress on teaching the perennial techniques involved in the Raga exploration. It is sad to note that usually teachers resort to teaching music by rote. In fact, Indian Classical Music along with other forms of music must be explored by the student right from the early stages by imbibing the suitable vocal techniques. Lot depends on music teachers as they must assist their students to learn the intricacies of Indian Classical Music rather than imposing a fixed, structured, and dry curriculum.

Thus, it is always better to emphasize on the right procedure of teaching music rather than taking it as a usual course of study. Music has always been higher, and will remain so, than usual studies. Therefore, the techniques of teaching music must also be different than the usual teaching techniques.  In my opinion, that is the sole reason, why performers are better teachers.

Voice Production Plays an Important Role

Singing, no doubt, has always remained one of the most favourite activities of the mankind. Although, people start learning music, they are deeply unaware of the sound production skills. In fact, this is where the key lies, if we take into account the singing from career point of view.

It is always important to understand the significance of voice production skills if one wants to sing correctly. Mastering the notes, rhythm, composition is not enough unless you develop a good sense of voice production.
