Wow....the broadband is finally active today.....and good-bye to dial-up!! It has had taken 26 days for the broadband providers to activate it. It was a little hassle to go through this time than when we moved house last year. I have no idea why though.

Their service is usually good but we got fed up this time. We were given a minimum of 20 days to get the broadband and 7 days period for the phone line after moving house. But they took more than two weeks to give the phone line and the reason given for the delay was that the time it had taken for them to get the line enabled from BT (British Telecom). And now, 26 days for the broadband and this is even after our few shouts only. Every time you call, they say "give us a call in 48 hours period of time as I am just going to pass this job into our dash department." Exactly the same words every time!! I don't know whether they were being ignorant or technical probs or what. Had to ring them almost every two days to give a shout and the last one was very harsh. Well, that was the way because we can't rely on dial-up all the time as exams are coming up. Oh, by the way, forgot to mention that this was all about AOL Broadband. Glad that it has finally been activated.

And coming to talk about exams, I got my SSU assessment tomorrow in which I have got to perform the poem that I have written. On depression. Kinda strange that a medical school wants to see us performing arts, even though it's just reading out in my case! Some people in my group are even singing! A good, relaxing element but it would have been so if it is not near the semester exams. I still enjoy it anyway!

To those who are doing exams this summer, wishing all the very best! Ciaoo!

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.
