Learning to weave

We'd done a similar exercise whilst in college. And I'll definitely be trying this one out. Thought that you might want to too.

This post made my day!

Blog : Mixed Emotions

A link to this post was made in one of the groups I subscribe to for the humour as well as the illustration. Its been a while since I laughed out loud to something I was reading online. I hope it does the same for you.

Learn a language online

An amazing amount of information and tools are being made available for general access on the Net. It is meant to reach a wide audience but this is unlikely to happen till more people get net savvy. They are reaching out to people who'd be interested. I know I'm a candidate. I've been very keen on learning Mandarin and French. Unlikely to happen in the near future but I'm saving up the information. If any of you choose to try it out, do let me know how you fare.

If you like a conversational and situational type of teaching, download a bunch of audio files and get going. You'll be speaking Mandarin or Spanish in no time.

This site believes in repetition and rote and you need to have access to the net to use it but you have 8 or more languages to choose from.

Oh Calcutta!

"For Calcutta natives like me, however, Mother Teresa’s charity also evoked the colonial past — she felt she knew what was best for the third world masses, whether it was condemning abortion or offering to convert those who were on the verge of death." Chitrita Banerjee

I agree with the author and while you may not, I thought you might like to read the whole article.

Rainbow



The most beautiful rainbow that I've seen to date and it had a paler one right besides it. Dont know if it was a reflection of some sort or actually two rainbows. Wish you'll could have seen it too.
