### HARDER CALCULATIONS

Sometimes mistakes, misunderstandings and misinterpretations are good!

Today I was being lazy! So I opted to study something out of the track! However, my desk and computer is loaded with my quotidian books, articles and webpages. I opted to read something that would ease my brain with more simple reading material and less quizzical derivations. So I took time off from, propeller mechanism and devoted it to something I consider as an accessory in our flying machines; a compass. (although, I totally agree it’s a vital part! no offence.)
Studying its introduction in the chapter lead me to the history and that is, when, I thought of writing a post…

We all know that a compass has 360 equally spaced arcs and each one representing a degree. Well! What fascinated me was the fact that, how during old times ancient people “Babylonian” divided these sections.

Babylonian people did an extensive study on the astronomical objects. They studied the motion of stars and concluded that there are 360 days in a year. So they divided a circle into 360 parts taking each small section as a day. This latter become the standard for the division of degree and no one bothered to correct it.

Perhaps, no one bothered because; it was easier to take the assumption into calculation. For illustration say; if they had known that there are 365 days (pardon the exception of leap year) we were going to have more vigorous calculations in out maths class! The value of pi in polar coordinate system was going to be 182.5`̊and geometry was going to have lot of multiplication. The significant figures were also going to be more precise. In brief, world was about to be a bit more complex.

If it would have been so, I would have been least bothered only after reaching college. After all, we were allowed to use scientific calculators!

PS Even if things are wronged, they will have a positive impact in long term!

### RAIN PELTS

The sun shone at a little south from zenith and I...
I basked my body n restless pondering.

The warm vivid sun soon faded and I...
I felt the cold breeze caress my hair.

The clouds coup d'état the reign of sun and I...
I bereaved of hopes of your arrival.

The muddy road was macerated by rain and I...
I was drenched in it too.

The rain got wild and the wind was harsh and I...
I stood still in my forlornness.

### DAMSEL IN DISTRESS

I bet! None of you could have think of a noble thought as, one of my friend. I wonder what made her so altruist and caring about not just the unsafe status of women in city, but also the same of female stray dogs too!

So here I introduce an ‘over the top’ thoughtful- generosity of my Anonymous friend (she sure don’t want to catch extra attention or gasp! ~~ err applause! And of course I don’t want her to read this post! So, if you are reading ‘sweetie click the cross on the top right’)…

The story starts with a small chat on contemporary social issue that our country is facing… you know! Corruption, bad politics, reservation (is that a social issue?), Anna Hazare and again Anna Hazare. (Well! that is all I can think of right now, thanks to the zealous media coverage. sigh!) and when the insurrectional chatting and blabbering ‘imaginary mike’ came over to our protagonist ‘Anonymous’. She mentioned how bad she feels for the ‘sexual assault’ that female stray dogs face in their day to day life!

You must be thinking, ptss! Come on, what the heck is it? But, face it people according to my dear friend Anonymous, Poor!  Female dogs every day face non-consensual-love making! And to their pity there are no police, neither NGO nor even family to whom these poor creature can turn to for emotional and legal support after the assault. That is probably due to the fact that they still follow anarchy in 2011!!  Her humbleness could not allow her in anytime soon, but in future my loving friend is going to make it all end! She shall form an NGO for street children (I appreciate this without being sarcastic!) and female dogs for the sexual and emotional assault!

I was thinking. Besides, if it goes on, It might raise the population of street dogs. I think Anonymous will have another concern about controlling their population too…! So it is a potential, viciously-growing concern list. you see!?!

So to free my friend from this upcoming predicament! I have written this ‘general awareness blog’, to aware you about the up going molestation and exploitation of female dogs. Kindly please if you see injustice taking place,  in your locality or anywhere around you, Save the poor lady dog and hush the bad male dog!!

Spread love among living beings, Help the poor lady Dog!
On that note I shall sign out of here…<3

### THANK HEAVENS, WE HAVE GOOGLE!

Today while making some notes I scribbled down “” for male and followed by “” for female. Well! There is not anything unordinary or special about jotting down the symbols for me. I have been using these symbols since high school biology classes. It is like a routine part of my short hand writing skills. However like many other times before, my concentration got struck in the symbols. I once again found myself trying to decipher the hidden meaning of the symbol.

Mostly I come up with the following tow conclusions...
First Conclusion... the male symbol represents male chauvinism as it is pointing to the top! I generally assumed that, some gender obsessed male might had decided this symbol to show off his potency as some supernatural power! On the contrary I assume female symbol to be more spiritual, representation a cross threaded in the circular loop. However the one who decided it might not be too good with shapes and had made the cross with dimensions not so proportional with the Holy Cross.
I know my first hypotheses do not fit into the puzzle very accurately, but hey! Man makes mistakes… so some men from history might have made a mistake... huh?
Second Conclusion… it’s pretty simple i.e. it represents some secret sexual behavior that I currently cannot understand as it is above my perception..!!
I know you must be thinking now “what rubbish!”
That’s what I thought today when I recapitulated my hypothesis. So I thought to myself, “buddy its 2011, you have got a laptop, internet and above all… the planet these days have some magic wand called Google! So quit assuming and GOOGLE it!!”
The gender symbols represents that men are from Mars and women from Venus. These symbols are derived from ancient Greek astrological symbols of planet Mars and Venus.
Here I am sharing a few more symbols of the same type…

Hope you enjoyed enlightenment!

### JETPACKS!

As a child I always fantasied flying with a jetpack tied on my back!
Yeah!  The Jetpack from the movie “spy kids” has always been my wildest dream or I should say dream machine.
Humans from ages have envyed a bird’s ability to fly and perhaps that’s the reason why people have been since always looking for a way to fly. There is nothing in the shape of a human that creates lift i.e. we are not aerodynamic creatures. Leonardo da Vinci designed flying machine commonly known as “Ornithopter”. This device have never been fabricated it was just drafted to show how humans can fly like bird. Another popular flying device is Air Screw. Many experts claims that modern helicopters are somewhat based on the Air Screw’s design by Leonardo da Vinci.  Jetpacks development has been under construction from the start of 19th century, when the concept was portrayed in science fiction comics (Buck Rogers) for the first time. The first jet pack was put up in mid of 19th century; however this design was not much practical.
Till the recent time jetpack has been practically used by astronauts during space flight. The development of jet pack will benefit commercial markets, including civil defence, military and recreation.
The short comings in the jetpack development include heavy weight; consumption on large amount of fuel for small flight time (lasting for a few seconds only), noise produced by the engine (that make it impossible to be used in defence operations), etc.
The development of jet pack has undergone a long evaluation phase from Aerojet’s Small Rocket Lift Device (SRLD) to Turbojet pack and NASA's Manned Manoeuvring Unit (MMU) up to a recent development of martin jetpack. Martin jetpack is first of its kind and planet’s first practical jetpack.
Martin aeronautics has been indulged in the jet pack development. From last 30 years, they have developed many prototypes. The factor that makes this one practical are
·         30 minutes flight time. That leaves behind rocket belt’s 30 seconds!
·         Safety features include a rapid deploying parachute, cage structure and shock absorbing support.
·         Easy to use with pilot training systems.
It runs on standard petrol, and uses 5 US gallons for 50 kilometres, at a speed of 100 kilometres per hour. There are two hand controls, one controlling pitch and roll, the other controlling yaw and the throttle. Martin Aircraft Company is targeting an initial sales price of US\$100,000 for the recreational version of the aircraft.
It’s just the start of a feasible jetpack machine let’s see what the future holds for this technology.

### THE WISH!

Firstly I will admit that I am not the bard of this verse, however I love the beauty it depicts! It was dedicated to me long ago! I don’t have any lawful right to post it, but I guess that casual permission will do!

I wish you to be a butterfly
High in your spirits, in your charms
And one fine day touching the sky

I wish you to be a butterfly
Living many and many lives
And not a single one shall die

I wish you to be a butterfly
Get seas of love and smiles-
And not a small drop of cry

I wish you to be a butterfly
Caressing flower to flower-
Each one shall be a home for life

I wish you to be a butterfly
Walking on the clouds, playing with stars
All the rules of nature, you defy

I wish you to be a butterfly
Hands outstretched, displaying your colours-
You open soft wings to fly

I wish today,
Somehow.... somehow
You turn into a beautiful butterfly… <3
