The Vast Ocean through my lens….

The strangest thing that keeps happening, whenever I travel…


The strangest thing that keeps happening while I am travelling through Airways is- My luggage issues….

I have always carried luggage that has exceeded the limit kg allowed by the airlines… I have always ended up removing my excess luggage, specially the fooditems have always been given back to the people who have come to see me off.. Never ever has it been, that I have gone through the luggage checkpoint just once..

The last time while I was coming back from India, after winding up my stuff, I had around 80kgs, I was travelling through Economy Class… I had already removed 40kgs, and carried another half with me, thinking maybe 30kgs will go into the luggage, and 10 in my hand luggage, But of no use.. and this time, it was not food. Unfortunately there were clothes. To balance the weight, Pair of certain clothes were arranged separately. So I anyways had to discard the extra 10kgs. After discarding 10kgs, I still had to pay money for the extra 5kgs, to my despair!!!

After reaching Bahrain, while unpacking my stuff, I realized that, the excess baggage that I discarded was the other half of alot of my luggage that passed through the luggae point was the other halves of a lot of my clothes 😦

So yeah I have been unfortunate ALL THE TIME!! 😉 Sometimes I wonder, why dont I simply take a Business Class Ticket, but I’m even the allowance of luggage limit would be less  for me.. 😉

SuperMoon Night….


Theres always a full moon night, but tonights moon will be a bit different than the others.. Its a Supermoon Night..!!

Usually a Supermoon appears once in 18yrs and also sometimes 4-6 times annually. Huge in size and brighter in color. This is the time when the Moon is the nearest to the earth in a given orbit- A mere 3,56,000kms out in orbit.

A lot of myths were born regarding the SuperMoon, but all have been slashed out by the astronomers. The only thing it will affect is the tides. Might just get a bit higher than usual.. I think thats the reason tides are formed otherwise too.. It has been argued that the Indian Ocean tsunami and earthquake on December 26, 2004, was influenced by a supermoon which occurred 2 weeks later on January 10, 2005. However two weeks before a supermoon the Moon is at the opposite point in its orbit: its apogee (greatest distance). Thus a supermoon effect is just impossible….

Most of the astrologers also argued that the recent Earthquake and Tsunami in Japan was due to the Supermoon, but how could the moon come out later than any big incident that has had happen days ago?? All myths!! There might just be some coastal floods which otherwise might happen with high tides too.. Not much Danger!

But anyways, we can still enjoy the view of the Super duper good looking Moon tonight…
