House Hunt!

I am back..with my second blog. Nothing interesting is happening around me at the moment. The daily routine is going on as usual. Started haunting for houses again. This is the third time we are needing to find a house to rent around our Uni. area. The first one was not quite the right choice. Well, we did not have any choices other than that one at that time, I should say. As it was the first time and we never had any experiences on what you should actually look for when you want to rent a house, the choice went wrong. And there was another fact that forced us to get that house despite its condition was that we had only a week to move to uni. The house was okay but it was the travelling time and the entrance that we did not like about. So we planned to move out when the first contract for 6 months ends.

Again we had a lot of trouble finding another house. It was a Friday last year when we broke up for the Easter holidays. And having had not found a house, we were all worried and did not know what to do next. That was when my friend found this house which we live in now for a year. We then had a lot of troubles with the guarantor business and everything and it took the whole month of Easter holidays to sort out things and it was finally the friday before the last weekend of the holidays when we got the house confirmed and moved in that weekend. I like this house and a good thing about it is the location; one, the house is near the hospital and guess.. its really good coz I don't have the hassle of getting bus when we have lectures at the hospital 2 days a week. Secondly, there is a big shopping centre :). There are much more good things about this house but unfortunately the landlord is not quite confident whether to extend the contract any longer than a year from to date. So, what do we do? Look for a new house? *Arrrggghhh*. Uni life is challenging especially if you are not in a uni. near your home and family. Still, experiencing & learning a lot outside studies. Another easter holiday with housing probs....and fingers crossed!

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 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…
