First Interview

It was just a couple of days back at late night, I came to know about my interview. I was delightful & privileged to know that I'm one among 8 students eligible to attend from my department. The next day ran to my college to get attestation and to complete few formalities. The day came, it took 1 and half hours of travel to reach the spot. I was blank, shivering, nervous, above all had confidence too. I was stunned to see the students gathered there like an ocean. My random guess of heads counted, would be 5000+ To my bliss, I was flying when my name been called out for clearing my 1st round of apps.

  We were then sent to another block for our 2nd level of selection process, Group discussion (GD). For a moment I remembered the "Factory made" show in Discovery channel. A step-by-step process to get the product they wish *wink* I entered a room with two recruiters in the panel. My room was with 20 candidates including me. Our topic was "Unemployment in India&q…

My life in twenty-twelve(2012)

  I would like to make a post about my life this year, on this day 21 December. The date which is been rumored about the end of world. This news came around 6-7 years ago, I was doing my schooling. At that time I was the one who believed & widespread it. I still could remember all the panic faces around me, who was keenly listening to my story. Funny, I'm still alive. Well, the year for me had many ups and downs as usual. I had mixed emotions. Apart from this, I watched many good movies those impressed & touched my heart like; The Dark knight rises, English vinglish, Life of pi, Expendables-2, Neerparavai, Kumki, many more. I did and doing sketching as hobby, singing & dancing as if I lost my nuts; honestly makes me happy!

  To start with, the first few months, I was badly unhappy with much hurts & pains. Was living my life just for name sake. This happened because, I’m a girl who used to adjust & compromise for everything, I just see everything from other's…

Tiny House, Happy Life?

Imagine stepping into a house 25 times smaller than your current abode. For the average American, that would amount to 100 square feet, a space so tiny it feels like it belongs in a tree.

That’s the way Jay Shafer has come home for the past decade. Shafer is considered something of a patriarch of the tiny house movement, a small but growing band of people who drastically shrink their living space in hopes of living a cheaper, less wasteful, and happier life.

Shafer started building tiny houses in the late 90s, attracted to the idea of living with fewer possessions. “When you live in a tiny house you only have room for the things that truly matter,” he told us when we visited his current 106-square-foot home in Sebastopol, California. “You have to choose what’s essential.”

The tour around his house took about three minutes, and with more than one person inside, we had to flatten ourselves against walls or in doorways–act…

Things I hate about you!

I hate the way you talk to me
I hate the way you cut your hairs
I hate the way you drive your car
I hate it when you stare
I hate your big dumb combat boots
I hate the way you read my mind
I hate you so much it makes me sick, it even makes me rhyme
I hate the way you're always right
I hate it when you lie
I hate it when you make me laugh & even worse when you make me cry
I hate it when you are not around the fact that you didn't call, but mostly I hate the way
I don't hate you, not even close not even a little bit, not even at all.

Elephantfish (Callorhinchus milii)

  The elephant shark, Callorhinchus milii, is a cartilaginous fish (Chondrichthyes). The strange looking Elephantfish has a hoe-shaped structure on the snout. Interestingly, studies so far have shown that the sequence and the gene order (synteny) are more similar between human and elephant shark genomes than between human and teleost fish genomes (fugu and zebrafish) even though humans are more closely related to teleost fishes than to the elephant shark.

Genome Project on Elephant Shark has launched to sequence the whole genome of the elephant shark. The elephant shark has three cone pigments for color vision (like humans). The elephant shark has a dorsal fin with a very sharp spine. The spine has been reputed to be venomous but no serious injuries have yet been reported. The genome of the elephant shark is estimated to be 910 Mb long (Mb = megabases = 1 million basepairs) which is the smallest among all the cartilaginous fishes and one-third the size of the human genome (3000 Mb).
