    I Support Time Restrictions on Deepavali Fire Crackers

    In Tamil Nadu, where I live, Court has permitted people to burst firecrackers from 6 A.M. to 7 A.M. and 7 P.M. to 8 P.M. I welcome this Judgement as it is not a blanket ban on firecrackers, but instead seeks to reduce them slowly. I encourage people to adhere to the timing. If possible, I request people to refrain from fireworks altogether for the reasons mentioned here – among others. Of course I am planning not to burst crackers this year – irrespective of how much its going to irk whom. I am actually proud that I have refrained from bursting polluting crackers for the major part of the last…

    Toothpicks as an Alternative to Mouthwash, Mouth Freshener, Chewing Gum

    While brushing our teeth regularly is an important aspect of maintaining our oral hygiene, that in itself may not be sufficient to maintain healthy teeth.

Bacteria thrives on these areas creating dental problems, bad teeth odour, etc. Many a time we gargle water to remove some of it.…

    New Theme. New Beginning.

    As you may have noticed, I have dressed up my blog with a new free WordPress theme – Ashe Blog by WP-Royal. I love the default fonts and typography in this theme, that too against the bright white background. I also like the concept of sticky sidebars (2-column). That may have reduced the space available for the content, but you can always press Ctrl+ or – to increase or decrease font size on your browser. You may not have noticed yet, but there is an Alt-Sidebar that appears when you click on the three small parallel lines on the top-bar (left-side from the words: Home). These three sidebars helped me…

    What is ‘Development’?

    As far as I see it, ‘DEVELOPMENT’ is a PROPAGANDA to increase the GDP so that the Industry & Government can make MORE MONEY by making believers WORK MORE and MORE in the promise of a better lifestyle which is NEVER achieved. I guess our P.M. would like to refute this argument. But how about you? Destination Infinity
