Twitter Twitter Cheep Cheep

I 've spotted a pair of sparrows nesting on top of my Ac railing box and constantly hear them tweet and twitter and feel so good hearing them.The simple reason being in my city vizag and in most parts of India the sparrows are disappearing ...getting extinct.The number of flats that are mushrooming are clear reasons for this there are absolutely no nooks and crannies for them to build nests.The felling of trees and lack of open terraces where in the past women dried foodgrains that served as food for these cute little birds are also considered reasons for their extinction by scientists.Nowadays, no one buys grains most buy ready made flour that needs no airing outside.Its sad that at one time the twitter of sparrows were almost in sync with the sunrise and sadly you hear it no more.Hope people will do something to save it like the tiger.The only twittering we do hear is on twitter the popular networking site.

Curry Bashings

I was amazed to learn that racial attacks in Australia has been dubbed as curry bashings and my site basically a food blog has made me see this close knit connection our food has on our social and political standings.As a good curry is loved by one and all over the world I m sure that one day food will be a major positive bond for people across the globe.However I am an optimist and don't see the entire people of Australia as racist perhaps a few closed minds exist all over the world but they aren't exactly strong enough to cause a major upheaval in humanity.I am really amused that while on one side we are constantly trying to find alien life and even going great lengths to befriend if any do exist and on the other we can't live in peace with people of this earth for whatever political/social reasons.
