It's been a hell of a year

2016 has been the year of shocks and surprises.

Trump winning the elections, India having a Coldplay Concert, Martin Garrix at Mahalaxmi Racecourse and the Demonitization of the Indian currency.

And to think all this happened in November itself. Lets see what December has in store for us !

Its surprising how something happening in one place can trigger a number of emotions from people living in another place. This year's been an epic example of this very statement.

I never thought the US elections would ever affect me. I mean, I'm not even an adult, forget being interested in politics and used to really not care much about what's happening in the other side of the world.

Imagine, I'm a girl who has no problem getting sleep during the night. But because of the November Nuisances, I had to resort to forcing Barbie and Noddy thoughts into my brain in order to sleep. Ever heard of that ?

You can try out end number of things....DIYs, music, yoga, tellytubies (don't laugh, it really works), some lovely ads on youtube (that helps) and not to forget books.

So, if something surprising or shocking happens to you in the next one month and eightdays, be rest assured its completely normal.

 After all the countdown to 2017 doesn't begin until another 30 days !

Close Encounters - Spotting a LEOPARD 12ft away @Nagpur

Presentations, college activities and research work had become my life. Spending 4-5 hours on the laptop and another 3 on the phone had become an everyday thing. Not that I was complaining, but when my college's Nature Club teacher in-charge Prof. Radhika D'Souza asked me if I would like to come on a 4 night, 5 days trip to the Nagzira Tiger Reserve in Nagpur, I immediately said yes. The trip was scheduled from the 28th of December to the 1st of January 2019. This meant that I would be missing my birthday as well as New year in one shot. But trust me, I didn't regret my decision one bit.
Our train was from CST at 3pm. There were around 40 other people on the trip (whom, by the way I didn't know at all; except for a few. But I later on realized that it didn't matter who you knew or didn't know at the beginning of the trip. By the end of it, there wasn't a single person whom you couldn't smile at). This was to be my first long distance train journey. So I…

CRPF Personnel martyred in J&K

The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) is the largest of India's Central Armed Police Forces. The CRPF's primary role lies in assisting the State/Union Territories in police operations to maintain law and order and counter insurgency. With 239 battalions and various other establishments, the CRPF is considered India's largest paramilitary force and has a sanctioned strength of 313,678 personnel. 

Yesterday, at 3:15pm, a Scorpio driven by a Jaish suicide bomber who was a local youth carrying a huge amount of explosives, deliberately crash banged into 1 of the 78 trucks which formed part of the convoy carrying approximately 2500 CRPF personnel who were returning from their vacation and proceeding to resume work in Awantipora, 30kms from Srinagar.
