It is now very common to have Kitchen hood installed in at our home. Time has changed and with more modern amenities we have to be additional cautious.
I am writing this from a recent personal accident that happened within our family. A fire incident that happened, and by sheer luck those involved survived without any injury. The trauma that followed still continues with family including adults and children.

Two officers from Kerala State Forest department verifying details and health condition of the elephants on duty each time for the temple festival and rituals associated. They take note of several details including the name of the elephant, its health condition, details of its mahout, whether he is drunk or not, whether proper food is given etc. I found them doing selfless service and much better placed in all aspects when compared to their colleagues working for Kerala Police force.
At a time when the ... read more »
I always thought that using mobile phones while driving is a dangerous activity. I am now convinced that using mobile phones while doing any other activity is equally dangerous.
I read about two deaths that happened when those involved were crossing the railway track while listening to music on their earphones. They noticed only the train from one side and missed the fast one from the opposite side.

Eventually I'd like ... read more »

Caution – Foot over bridge work in progress!
It’s an interesting site to note. At last the foot over bridge work in progress..
A big caution – as announced in the sign clearly. We all do not know how long it will take to finish.
As written wrongly, there are several wrong things associated with this construction project taken up by the authorities. It may continue for a longer time than we all expect.
