It has been a long time...

This Is a Long Drive for Someone with Nothing ...

Yes it has been a long time since I visited my blog and wrote anything here. I could give many reasons to justify my not blogging but all of them truly will be mere excuses. It has been a busy couple of weeks since I blogged last time. I have been working almost every single day and today because of the sudden snowfall I was not confident enough to undertake the hour long drive across America's most dangerous highway to get to work. Hence I am sitting here twiddling my thumbs and thought I'd post a little something on my blog. Not that there are thousands of readers waiting to read what I have to say but it is just for my satisfaction that I wrote something on this online journal of mine.

I don't know what else to write here. My mind can't seem to think of anything but work and how to garner more hours at work. How to achieve that break that would catapult me into professional success. What I need to know so that I can seize the opportunity when it presents itself in front of me. Meanwhile I will keep finding excuses not to blog. We will see how things pan out!!!

Having a website is a necessity for all kinds of businesses. In this day and age when people look for stuff online first and then visit the store it is better to have a good website if you are trying to sell something or offer a service. There is no doubt that business success can't be ensured without a website.

Now registering your own domain can be expensive, but there are great discount options available. Some service providers offer discounts and promotions.

Grief Strikes America at times of Joy

The happiness that Christmas Holidays brings year after year to hundreds of thousands of families in the world is not going to be so happy in America this year. An unfortunate incident that ended in a school shooting has put the nation in a pall of gloom. According to news reports the Connecticut school shooting took a toll of 20 children and 6 adults.

My prayers go out to the families affected by this tragedy. May god give them the strength to tide over these tough times and emerge stronger so that the nation as a whole can find ways and means that can prevent such incidents from ever happening again.

Now of course every opponent of gun ownership will come forward and say that guns must be banned. Some people will say that students/ teachers/ visitors should be frisked before entering school/ public building premises. None of these are real solutions to the problem of shootings such as these. It is time American's looked within to find solutions.

There seems to be something wrong with how children are experiencing life in general. There appears to be a emotional disconnect between young people and suffering. There is too much comfort, too little responsibility and high stress levels. It is upon us as adults of this society to look inward and find solutions.

Another way to Immigrate to America!!!

I read the Yahoo News about how a luxury home is being maintained as a birthing location for Chinese nationals who would like to give the gift of American Citizenship to their yet unborn Children. Their modus operandi is simple, get pregnant in China travel to US when they are few weeks from delivery and give birth here. This way the child becomes an American Citizen, the parents can't be removed. The government here will be forced to give them green cards and they will bring the rest of their extended family. A neat strategy to take over the country, infiltrate, immigrate, and populate. China wants to be the superpower in the world and what better way than to takeover the existing superpower by overpopulating the nation with their people.

College Artworks

Yesterday when I attended classes I visited the college art gallery during the break. A mixed media exhibition is going on over there which has some bold looking artworks that perhaps would fit only a gallery and would never grace anyone's home. I wonder what the artist had in mind while creating these works of art. I personally didn't understand the art and there was no explanation signage to help me understand. All I can say is there are a variety of objects used to create something attractive.

Lake Lavon from the highway

Recently I drove over a bridge built across the northern ending part of Lake Lavon. The bridge about a mile long provides scenic views of the lake when it is full. Unfortunately due to drought of the past two years the water levels have dropped significantly. Nevertheless the lake is still very beautiful and offers a soothing ambiance.

Winter clouds!!!

Here in Texas the best days to look at the sky and clouds is during the early winter or fall days. The sun is bright but not blazing down and burning everything in sight. The sky has a fair share of clouds which provides a nice contrast of white against the bright blue skies. Here are some pictures I shot as I drove along the endless highways of Texas.

Happy Diwali 2012

Diwali decoration

Diwali is here like every year. This year is the same as it was since I moved to the US but it is different too. The difference being I almost forgot it was Diwali today. I kinda remembered that it is sometime now but didn't know it was today. Anyway for someone like me whose entire life revolves around non-Hindus and almost all interactions are with people who are not even aware of this festival, it is just any other day.

I wonder how other Hindus are celebrating the festival of lights across the world. It is funny that when I was in India I looked forward to this very festival because I wanted the holiday from work to go out and enjoy. Here there are no holidays to look forward to. I set my own timings and days to work and I can take off whenever I want to and of course whenever my circumstances allow me to.

Anyway enough of my rambling... go ahead and enjoy the Diwali with family and friends instead of browsing the internet.

Veterans Day in America

One thing that the rest of the world must learn from Americans is the way they respect their soldiers and celebrate their leaders. Today is veterans day and every news channel, media outlet, school, college, government department, and private entity is talking about it. There have been thousands of events across the country to honor veterans and thank their families. This kind of adulation and respect naturally attracts young men and women of this country to want to serve their nation and make it great.

Today I was listening to a radio program on KERA in which a veteran was being interviewed. His only message to all the citizens was not to just thank a veteran today but to ask them for a story. In short the speaker urged citizens to make a veterans day by asking them to tell a story of their service days.

Anyone will feel good when others show an interest in their life and story. Especially so if one has fought a war and placed their health and life at risk. I wish every nation in the world celebrated their fighting soldiers the same way.

Robbery Inspired by Movies

Looks like some people learn lessons from movies. This set of criminals did at least and made away with a cool $3.1 million heist from a jewelry store. On the flip side these guys are bringing a bad name to bikers and motorcyclists who ride for fun and enjoyment. I wonder what kind of backlash there will be in Britain against motorcyclists.

300 illegal voters makes news in the US. In India there are more than 3 million perhaps even 30 million illegal Bangladeshi and Pakistani nationals voting and enjoying all the benefits that India has to offer, but still no media person or organization seems to care.

Dust storm shuts down interstate in northern Okla. - Yahoo! News

This happens in America. Highways full of fast cars, flanked by vast open spaces come to a grinding halt in front of nature's fury. Once again human beings are made to remember that their massive inventions are after all not so powerful against the wrath of nature.
