Gardening

is something that Id never done in my life. Best to say that I did not get a chance to do any gardening as I had never taken any responsibilities until I move out of home to Uni. Uni life is teaching me a lot outside studies too. From cleaning to moving houses ! Believe me or not, when I went to do work experience at a nursing home in sutton to make my personal statement look good for the medical school, I had a very shameful experience of that.....hold your breath.... I did not know how to toast bread in the toaster. And when one of the staff works there asked me to help with toasting bread I had no idea what to do with the toaster. I had to put all my shyness aside and ask her 'how do I toast it, could you show me first..'. There were some other experiences like this but I am not gonna tell you pps here ;)

Now, gardening....... yes, for the first time I have done gardening with my friends today and I am really proud about it. It was such a hard work still. Got some cuts on my hand too. The fact that we didn't do the garden last summer made it more hard. The weather was also not the perfect to do gardening but still enjoyed it.

It is snowing in london since the night I left from there (home) to Uni on Saturday. How annoying ! I was longing for snow for a while from the beginning of the winter but I am not there when it snows now. It is never gonna snow in Southampton and I am really jealous of everyone who is enjoying the snow in London. I want it to continue snowing because I am going home again in a week time so that I won't lose my chance :)

Ok, as of now, I am gonna have a nap cos I am really tired of the great gardening work today. Happy gardening and well done to myself :) Happy easter too off course !

Kumi : I know..that staff made it sure that she told as many ppl as she could about it in the nursing home ;)

Thena : Yes, whether I learned anything about looking after or not, it taught me how to use toaster :) We have to leave the house in the same condition as it was when we moved in if we want our deposit back. That's why gardening must have had done! lol.

Sevva Thosham and Science

At home! Had a good day today. Went to the Shiva Temple as it was PradoshaViradham today. Apparently, it was yesterday in London and today in SriLanka. I had no idea why and when people fast for Pradosham. I only had a slightest idea that it is something like Ekadasi. I got a good opportunity to talk to the priest there about religion, which is quite rare and unusual! I always get questions of why, what and how. And it was a time for me to ask some of the Whys I had in my mind though not everything. It is really amazing how science overlaps religion (in general). There is always a strong scientific aspect behind every feature of Hinduism. It was a delight to sit and listen to the priest about the religion and its science.

One of the interesting things I got to know was about the SevvaiThosham. I did not know much about SevvaThosham before as there was never a talk about it in my family. As the priest explained, a girl with SevvaiThosham should marry a man with the same thosham. And tha…

Female feticide and Sex ratio in India - BMJ

While leafing through the BMJ magazine; June, a letter on one of the articles of sBMJ May urged me to find the May issue and read it. It was about the unwelcome sex in India. I have heard about the high occurrence of female feticide in India but happening to hear a lot in the recent days on magazines and blogs.

The article touched on the dangerous traditions in India which favour for the birth of a boy than girl as boys are cheaper because of the dowry system. The high social and economic value of men is the causation for sex selective abortions in India. Though the dowry payments are illegal, it is accepted as a tradition to continue their family hierarchy and this phenomena is deeply rooted in the societies. Although is illegal to do a prenatal examinations to identify the sex of a fetus is illegal in India, if the families once known it is a girl, the fetus is terminated. According to the article, evidently there were about 5 million female fetuses are aborted every year purely on …

What Saranya means?

Does any of you believe in these kind of quizzes and answers? Stumbled on this site while googling for something else....Though I don't take these serious or believe them, just reading them is often fun :)


What Saranya MeansYou are the total package - suave, sexy, smart, and strong.
You have the whole world under your spell, and you can influence almost everyone you know.
You don't always resist your urges to crush the weak. Just remember, they don't have as much going for them as you do.

You are usually the best at everything ... you strive for perfection.
You are confident, authoritative, and aggressive.
You have the classic "Type A" personality.

You are wild, crazy, and a huge rebel. You're always up to something.
You have a ton of energy, and most people can't handle you. You're very intense.
You definitely are a handful, and you're likely to get in trouble. But your kind of trouble is a lot of fun.

You are very intuitive and wise. You understand the wo…
