But, unfortunately, some plants can be dangerous because of their “poisonous” nature, and today, I would like to talk about one such plant. The name of this poisonous plant is “Pangi”. Being native to the Southeast Asia region, this plant is very much rightly called the “Nature’s Monster”. Often reaching a height of about 50 feet, this wild and undomesticated plant usually thrives in the tropical weather system where the temperature hovers around 25 to 28

Mrs Hema is one such good cook, and today I would like to talk about her. I have known this person for a long time since she happens to be the wife of one of my elder cousins. She is also a teacher – a rather busy teacher, I might add - by profession, and it is safe to say that she loves her job very much.

Well, the product, I want to talk about is a swivel chair – an expensive swivel chair that is. Now, before I go to brag about my “choice of an expensive chair”, I must admit that I am more of a “cheap” customer.  In other words, I like to buy “cheap” things, obviously because I like to save as m

And the name of this renowned singer is Runa Laila. Now, it is certainly worth noting that Runa Laila is very much like a household name in South Asia, and she has remained so for more or less over the last 50 years. Born in the year 1952 in

In fact, at one point in my life, I became so passionate about taking pictures that I even bought an expensive camera by selling a lot of my “personal” pieces of stuff. But, that’s a different story altogether, so I will just go ahead and talk about one of my favourite pictures instead - which I took with that camera. This particular picture, I am talking about, was taken at a wedding ceremony of one of my female cousins about 2/3 years ago. Now, before I go to t

For example, somebody may like fish, while many others can’t even take the smell of it! Some may prefer fast food while many others just avoid them like plagues on some health grounds! Talking about fast foods, I just love eating pizza. In fact, if my memory serves me well, pizza has been one of my favourite foods since my early university days, and there wasn’t a week for me in those university years that had passed by without eat
