Collision of Asteroids: Bane or Boon

Space is full of surprises. It may seem blank and vast, but many secrets are hidden beneath those layers. For years, I have been gazing at sky, hypnotized by the twinkling stars, shooting metorites, seldom visible planets like Jupiter and Saturn and totally mesmerized by the punctuality of Sun and […]

Most of us associate Volcanoes with red hot lava, erupting violently out of Earth, splashing and scalding the surroundings. But seldom do we stop and acknowledge that the Volcanoes are actually responsible for birth of life on Earth, they make atmospheric changes by adding core material and create new structures. […]

निराला: संध्या सुंदरी

निराला: संध्या सुंदरी

हिंदी काव्य प्रेमियों के लिए सूर्यकांत त्रिपाठी निराला, किसी परिचय के मोहताज नहीं…. छायावाद के स्तम्भ कवि, अपनी श्रेष्ठ प्रकृति कविताओं और अनूठी उपमाओं के लिए जाने जाते हैं.. उन्हें पढ़ना सुखद अनुभूति है… अनायास ही प्रेम हो जाता है उनके लयमय छंदों से.. हृदय वीणा सुमधुर बज उठती है […]

Rabindranath Tagore: A Soulful Painter

The theft was […]

Michelangelo in Sistine Chapel

Michelangelo in Sistine Chapel

Just watched a documentary on Michelangelo’s Frescoes in Sistine Chapel.. and I am amazed at the sheer brilliance and magnitude of work done by the phenomenal artist. Despite not being a painter but a sculpture artist, commissioned on a whim by Warrior Pope Julius, Angelo painted over 300 figures on […]
