How to Relax During Christmas; Christmas- a New Way of Relaxation; New Year-a New Way of Relaxation

Want to stay away from the maddening parties during Christmas and New Year? Want to relax a bit after a long and strainous year? Orange Phone Company is providing a new service to help its users relax this Christmas and New Year. The 'Relaxation line' allows users to listen to the soothing sound of the sea. All you have to do is to dial a standard rate number and choose from one of five ambient sound effects available. The sounds include a woodland forest, waves lapping on a beach, the "traditional hubbub of an English village green", a crackling log fire, and birdsong. The sounds have been recorded at Brighton Beach, Brighton Nature Reserve, Open House and Canterbury Aviary. The new concept was built on studies conducted by behavioural therapists. Recent studies show that listening to recorded sounds of the ocean for just 12 minutes can lower both the pulse and blood pressure the Telegraph quoted Professor Richard Schoch, cultural historian and author of the book 'The Secrets of Happiness', as saying. He also said that we know certain sounds make us feel calmer because they slow down the body's stress response."Orange offers the service free to its customers, but standard network charges are applied to other users.

My Name is Khan; Shah Rukh Kajol and Karan Johar in My Name is Khan

Karan Johar, Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol's association is a phenomenon in bollywood film industry. Whenever three of them came together, they created only magic and shattered the box office records with films like KUCH KUCH HOTA HAI and KABHI KHUSHI KABHIE GHAM. And now the threesome are returning after a long gap with MY NAME IS KHAN. But unlike candy floss romances, this time around Karan Johar's MY NAME IS KHAN deals with much more serious issues. So, does that mean romance takes a backstage in this Shah Rukh-Kajol starrer? Karan reacts at once: No and adds:Though it deals with an intricate and interesting subject matter, but My Name Is Khan is an out and out love story. There is a very special lovestory integrated which entirely forms the backbone of the movie. But it won't be a prototype formula love story, one used to see. As a matter of fact, there is no romantic songs like 'Tum Paas Aaye...', No romantic moments between Shah Rukh-Kajol, etc. Actually the treatment of the film is not like it's been in DILWAALE DULHANIYA LE JAYENGE or KUCH KUCH HOTA HAI or KABHI KHUSHI KABHIE GHAM. Here the characters are absolutely different, the environment is different, the message is different. Characters Rizwan and Mandira's lovestory is very emotional and heartrending. Its being said that MY NAME IS KHAN is about the aftermath faced by 9/11 attacks, but Karan denies its connection to 9/11. This film is not about terrorism or 9/11 issue or any anti social activity. Basically this film is about relationships between people within an area or locality or a city or country. It is not inspired by any activity or action which took place. It's about the emotional reality, beyond time, which may happen before or after the act. The film which talks about relationships is weaved under the aspects of Western culture, Islam, Neurotypical personality, Asparagus syndrome.
The film is also gaining enough publicity because of its unusual title, seemingly a self esteemed title. To which SRK retorts saying: Well it was not done purposefully. It is pertinent to the film and thats why we have chosen the name. The film has already created some hype and lets see if the movie can live up the expections!

Tata Nano Achieves New Height, Tata Nano Gaining Popularity in Western Countries

The Tata Nano, supposed to be the world's most affordable car, will be on exhibition at prestigious Smithsonian's Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum in New York's from Feb 18 through April 25 2010. A bright, sunshine yellow Nano, built by Indian auto major company- Tata Motors, will be on display in Cooper-Hewitt's Great Hall, along with diagrams and a short film describing its concept, development and production. The name 'Nano' connotes high technology, small size and low price and Tata Motors is currently developing versions of the Nano for European and American markets as well. This ultra-cheap compact car contributes to the world of affordable motoring, and like its predecessors, Henry Ford's Model T, the Volkswagen Beetle, Citroen 2CV and the original Fiat 500, the Tata Nano continues the tradition of inexpensive cars made in large numbers.The Tata Nano introduces more families in India to the new world of affordable and safer mobility, and its really a new beginning for them . 'We're eager to display the Tata Nano at the museum, where many visitors will see it for the first time.': the Museum Authority Said. Unveiled last year in India, the Tata Nano is targeted to families who had not previously been able to afford a car. Billed as 'the people's car,' the base model starts at $2,200 in India and can accommodate up to five adults. Conceived by Ratan Tata, chairman of the Tata Group, the Tata Nano is intended as an all-weather form of personal transportation that provides a safer and cleaner alternative to the two-wheelers that are pervasive in India, where often entire families ride clinging to a motorbike or a scooter. The Nano offers a high fuel efficiency of 50 miles per gallon, making it more fuel efficient and less polluting than all other cars on the road today in India, the Tata Motor Co. demanded.. Designed by a team of 500 Indian engineers, the 35-horsepower, four-door vehicle has been pared down to the essentials: It is about10 feet long, weighs approximately 1,300 pounds, has an all-sheet-metal body, a rear two-cylinder engine, small tubeless tires, a reinforced passenger compartment, crumple zones, seat belts and achieves a top speed of 104 km. per hour. To allay concerns about safety, the car passed a roll-over test and offset impact, which are not regulated in India. Its barebones design, as of now, does not include more costly features such as power steering, air bags, antilock brakes or an exterior left passenger-side mirror, which are not mandatory in India, the company said. Well , its the idea to have the middle class people their own car maks nano novel!

India is The No 1 Cricket Team in World

Australia dominated the world cricket for an entire decade and it is great to have now a cluster of sides eying for the number one spot. India snatched the top status away from South Africa this week, and it will only serve to make Graeme Smith's side even more determined in the upcoming Test series against England. Right now, we have India, South Africa, Australia, Sri Lanka and England all battling hard to establish themselves as the world's best - that's a very healthy state for cricket to be in. All it will take is for one of those five sides to have a powerful run of form through three or four Test series, and each are capable of doing so. In the case of India, still the question is whether they are capable of performing away from home on a regular basis, and that could be where South Africa sneak ahead. It is pretty ironic that India have risen to the top in a format which some people have accused them of neglecting, but it just goes to show that Test cricket is still in rude health and means a lot to sub-continental sides A quirk in the international schedule could see India lose their crown relatively quickly because they are due to play only two Test matches over the next 11 months. MS Dhoni has thoroughly impressed everyone in the way that he has led his side, and his positive attitude is clearly rubbing off on the rest of his players - you need a captain who energises the team and does not drain them. Dhoni is a firecracker of a player and his team obviously respect him immensely. India will end 2009 as the number one Test side in the world and they deserve to hold that status because of their incredible depth of batting and collection of match-winning bowlers. Test cricket is creating a huge amount of interest now as that group of sides battles it out at the top of the rankings, and those who doubt the importance of the longer format need only look at India's superb series with Sri Lanka. Its reall good news for test cricket in India!

Global Warming and Its Danger, Copenhagen Conference on Global Warming

Representatives of 192 countries will meet in one of the most widely anticipated international conferences in Copenhagen, which starts on 7th december. They will meet to try and bring out an agreement that, many hope, will save the planet from the dangers of global warming and climate change. With the world attention focused on Copenhagen, here is what one should know.
Why we should be scared of global warming?
The average temperature on earth has been rising rapidly. And this is the result of growing concentrations of 'greenhouse gases' that are emitted whenever any fuel is burnt to produce energy. If something is not done immediately to stop the increase in the concentrations of these gases, there will be catastrophic consequences in the next few decades. Glaciers will melt, sea levels will rise, low-lying areas will be submerged, crops will be damaged, extreme weather events like cyclones and storms will become more frequent. In short, the world will become a difficult place to live in and millions of people may lose their lives.
What's the solution?
Since the problem has been caused by excess GHGs, the solution is to reduce the emission of GHGs. Simple, isn't it?
Not quite. Industries have to operate, vehicles have to run and people have to use appliances. Developing countries like India need more and more energy to power their industries and increase other economic activities. Developed countries might not need to increase their energy consumption now but their current consumption is already very high. It's a vicious cycle. Development needs more industries and machines, but these lead to increased emissions.
Is there any other way to escape?
A middle path has to be found so that emissions can be reduced but not at the cost of development. Excess consumption and wastage of energy has to be prevented. More efficient technologies have to be found. If possible, ways have to be devised to absorb GHGs so that they don't accumulate in the atmosphere. Nature offers such a solution in trees, which absorb carbon dioxide and are therefore very good carbon sinks and are good for reducing GHG concentrations.
So what will the Copenhagen meet do about the problem?
It is expected to come up with an agreement that will make it legally binding for rich and developed countries to reduce their GHG emissions by specific amounts by a certain date, possibly 2020. In fact, such an international agreement already exists. It is called the Kyoto Protocol (1997) that makes it mandatory for a group of rich countries to reduce their collective emissions by 5.2 per cent from their 1990 levels by 2012. The Copenhagen meet is expected to fix bigger targets on these countries for a period beyond 2012 and till 2020.
Why should the rich pay more?
Well, it's only fair since they created the problem in the first place. More than 80 per cent of the accumulated GHGs in atmosphere have been emitted by these countries since they were the first ones to industrialise. They continue to emit more: a handful of about 30 rich countries account for nearly half the global emissions. Their average per capita emission is more than twice the world average and at least ten times more than that of India. A lot of it results from wasteful and luxurious consumption of energy.
But that doesn't mean the rest can just sit back and do nothing, does it?
According to the Bali Action Plan(Dec 2007), every country needs to take steps to reduce its energy consumption. But unlike rich countries, they do not have to affix targets and the reduction targets are not legally binding. This has been done so that the developing countries don't find themselves constrained in their effort to increase economic activity and reduce poverty. Development and poverty reduction have been recognized as the primary and overriding concern for these countries and that includes India.
Does everyone agree on such an arrangement?
In principle, yes, but there are sharp differences over the details. Rich countries, for example, want big, emerging economies like India and China to also take some sort of targeted reductions in their rapidly growing emissions. Developing countries, on the other hand, are demanding more ambitious emission cuts from the rich countries. They are also asking for transfer of technology and money to cope with the effects of a problem that is essentially the making of rich countries.
Will the Copenhagen meet result in a deal?
The chances of a comprehensive agreement in accordance with the Bali roadmap look remote. But all the major emitters are expected to list their offers to reduce their emissions. A political declaration is also likely to come out, stating the intent and commitment to quick action.
India and climate change:
* India is the fifth largest emitter of greenhouse gases, behind China, the United States, the European Union and Russia.
* Its annual carbon dioxide emission is in the range of 1.2 to 1.4 billion tonnes. Its annual greenhouse gas emission (CO2 plus five other gases, including methane) is in the range of 1.6 to 1.8 billion tonnes.
* India's per capita emission is about 1.2 tonnes per year. That's about one fourth of the global average, about one-tenth of the emissions of developed countries and about one-third of China's.
* Between 1990 and 2004, India's carbon dioxide emissions grew by about 7 per cent a year on an average.
India's traditional argument:
* Development and poverty reduction is its primary and over-riding priority even as it shares responsibility for contributing to global efforts to contain temperature rise and climate change. It is, therefore, in no position to cap or reduce its emissions, though it is working towards slowing the growth of its emissions.
* Reducing greenhouse gas emissions (mitigation) is the sole responsibility of Annex-I countries (developed nations), as the Kyoto Protocol says. India will take mitigation efforts only if the developed world supports it with technology transfer and finance.
* India has already come up with a National Action Plan on Climate Change in line with its responsibility under the Bali roadmap. Several other steps, including a new building code, fuel efficiency standards and massive afforestation, have also been initiated. However, these domestic actions are not open to international scrutiny.
* Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has given an assurance that even as its total emissions grow, India will never allow its per capita emissions to rise above the average per capita emissions of the developed world.
* 20-25 per cent cuts in carbon intensity by 2020 over 2005 levels: this was announced last Thursday by Prime Minister Dr. Monmohon Singh as a "non-binding" domestic target.
* India also agreed to tell the world about the amount of emission reductions that its domestic actions were likely to lead to by a certain year. It was not prepared to do so earlier. These numbers, however, cannot be treated as internationally binding targets.
* Two degree statement in Italy: At the Major Economies Forum earlier this year, India signed on a declaration that called on all the signatories to work towards limiting the global rise in temperatures to within 2 degrees centigrade from the pre-industrial levels. This created a controversy because some interpreted the declaration as indirectly imposing emission cuts on India. But the MEF declaration is not a legally binding document.
* India has also offered to report its emission status to the international community more frequently than it is required to do under law. This will allow the world to track the results of India's domestic actions.

Chaina has also declared to reduce the carbon density 40-45% by the year 2020. So the ball is really rolling . Lets hope something dramatic will happen, good thoughts prevail and the world will be rescued from oblivion!

Twitter- The Word That Rocks The World, Twitter Tops Among The Words Used in 2009

Twitter, the popular phenomenon of social networking, has been named the top English word this year in a survey by ANI. Texas-based Global Language Monitor put together a list of the top words and phrases and found that this was more popular than Obama and H1N1, commonly known as the "swine flu". Wrapping up the top five words were 'stimulus' and 'vampire', reports the Telegraph. Founder Paul Payack said that in a year dominated by world-shaking political events, a pandemic, the after effects of a financial tsunami and the death of a revered pop icon, the word Twitter stands above all the other words. Twitter represents a new form of social interaction, where all communication is reduced to 140 characters. Being limited to strict formats did wonders for the sonnet and haiku.

The top 15 words were:

1. Twitter

2. Obama

3. H1N1

4. Stimulus

5. Vampire

6. 2.0 - as in suffix attached to the next generation

7. Deficit

8. Hadron

Sources reveal that Asin had signed the movie a month ago without even reading the script because she was thrilled to work with director Ashutosh Gowrikar, but after hearing the script, she opted out. Critics say she may have made a good decision, seeing how she was reduced to a mere background dancer in a thankless role in the recently released London Dreams. Ashutosh Gowarikar has been facing a lot of critisism due to the debacle of What's your Rashee. Khelenge Hum Jee Jaan Se, a period film based on the Chittagong uprising, has Abhishek plays the character of Masterda. Asin would have very ittle to do in that film and that's why she moved away.

Halloween Day Celebration

Halloween (also spelled Hallowe'en) is an annual holiday celebrated on October 31.

It has roots in the Celtic festival of Samhain and the Christian holy day of All Saints’ Day. It is largely a secular celebration, but some have expressed strong feelings about perceived religious overtones.Irish immigrants carried versions of the tradition to North America during Ireland's Great Famine of 1846.

The day is often associated with orange and black, and is strongly associated with symbols like the jack-o'-lantern. Halloween activities include trick-or-treating, wearing costumes and attending costume parties, ghost tours, bonfires, visiting haunted attractions, pranks, reading scary stories, and watching horror films.

The Halloween we celebrate today includes all of these influences, Pomona Day's apples, nuts, and harvest, the Festival of Samhain's black cats, magic, evil spirits and death, and the ghosts, skeletons and skulls from All Saint's Day and All Soul's Day.

Barack Obama gets Nobel Peace Prize; Prize for Barack Obama, Surprise for World

Barack Obama gets Nobel Peace Prize, taking the entire world by surprise! Lots of debate whether he deserves it or not. Lets take a quick look at it.

Why he should get the prize:
* The prize is more for Obama,s promise than for his performance. No one symbolises hope more than Obama!
* He made USA to make some steps forward towards political correctness and pulled the UN from oblivion.
* Obama just lost his bid to bring olimpics to Chicago, so he needs a consolation!

Mahendra Singh Dhoni Reaches New Height

Mahendra Singh Dhoni named as captain for second successive year, an unique achievement.

The ICC today announced its ODI Team of the Year, as chosen by a specially appointed selection panel chaired by West Indian batting legend Clive Lloyd.

The announcement was made at the LG ICC Awards celebration at the Sandton Convention Centre, Johannesburg. Presented in association with FICA, the ICC Awards recognise the best international players of the past 12 months.

The ICC World ODI Team of the Year is (in batting order):

Virender Sehwag (Ind)

Chris Gayle (WI)

Kevin Pietersen (Eng)

Tillakaratne Dilshan (SL)

Yuvraj Singh (Ind)

Martin Guptill (NZ)

MS Dhoni (Ind, captain, WK)

Andrew Flintoff (Eng)

Nuwan Kulasekara (SL)

Ajantha Mendis (SL)

Umar Gul (Pak)

12th man: Thilan Thushara (SL)

Six countries are represented in the 12-man line-up and just one player - Mahendra Singh Dhoni of India - also appeared in the World ODI Team of the Year in 2008. Dhoni is named as captain of the team for the second year running.

Chairman of the LG ICC Awards selection panel, Clive Lloyd said: "It was a very difficult task in selecting this year's ODI team but looking at the line-up I feel it has great balance and depth. It would be a formidable team."

Lloyd was joined on the panel by former India captain Anil Kumble, former Pakistan all-rounder Mudassar Nazar, former New Zealand skipper Stephen Fleming and ex-England wicketkeeper Bob Taylor. Statistics were available as a guide but were not necessarily the overwhelming factor in the choices made.

The ICC ODI Team of the Year was one of two teams selected by the ICC selection panel along with the Test line-up. There were also eight individual prizes given at this year's LG ICC Awards.

The LG ICC Awards selection panel was charged with two main tasks: providing a long-list of nominations to the 25 members of the voting academy to cast their votes in the individual player award categories and, using their experience, knowledge and appreciation of the game, select the ICC World Test and ODI teams.

Based on the period between 13 August 2008 and 24 August 2009, the LG ICC Awards 2009 - presented in association with FICA - take into account performances by players and officials.

Apart from MSD, who was named the ODI cricketer of the year and chosen the captain of both the Test and ODI team, Gautam Gambhir was named as the ICC Test Cricketer of the year also.

It is the occassion when everywhere across the state of West Bengal grand pandals (huge and elaborately crafted temporary structures erected to temporarily house idols) are set up to house life-sized or bigger idols of Goddess Durga and her four children for four days.

Origin Of durga and Mythology

Durga, a beautiful warrior seated upon a tiger.
Devi is the great goddess of the Hindus,the consort of Shiva and she is worshiped in various forms corresponding to her two aspects: benevolence and fierceness. She is Uma, "light"; Gauri, "yellow or brilliant"; Parvati, "the mountaineer"; and Jagatmata, "the-mother-of-the-world" in her milder guise. The terrible emanations are Durga "the inaccessible"; Kali, "the black"; Chandi, "the fierce"; and Bhairavi, "the terrible."
She went to battle on her ferocious mount lion, armed with the weapons given to her by the other Gods. Durga is one of the angry and aggressive aspects of the goddess Shakti, whose role in Hindu mythology was to fight and conquer demons and also personify the Sakti or female aspect of any male deity. In the battle, she fought and killed the evil Mahishasura and restored heaven to the Gods. Since then the goddess is invoked for protection from the powers of evil. Durga Puja is observed in her honor, to celebrate her victory over evil.

Origin- Dasera And Navratri

Dasera is considered as one of the Sade-Teen shubh-muhurats. According to Epic 'Ramayana', Dasera is the day on which the Lord Ram killed the evil king of Lanka 'Ravan'. This day is celebrated as good had triumph over evil, a huge statue of Ravan is burnt which is made up of crackers, where people gathers and enjoys the burning statue of Ravan.

Good Luck for Akshay Kumar

Khatron Ka Khiladi Akshay Kumar is renowned for his daredevilry and mental strength. Rumour has it that he doesn't have a single weak bone in him; he fears no one and nothing. The uncrowned King of Bollywood action films, however, says that it is not entirely true. He too gets scared, especially during stunts involving heights. Among the most dependable Bollywood actors, Akki is currently gearing up for the second season of Fear Factor: Khatron Ke Khiladi. A Sabse Bada Khiladi himself, Akshay Kumar's first stint in his new avatar as a reality TV show host has earned him rave reviews. While he prepares to make life miserable for the so-called damsels in distress by making them perform extremely daring stunts, Ganesha surfs through Vedic Astrology principles to predict how challenging the year will be for him: Akshay Kumar- Date of birth: 9th September, 1967, Time of birth: Unknown, Place of birth: Amritsar, Punjab, India.
Astrological Points- Saturn will transit over exalted Mercury after 9th September, 2009. Transiting Rahu will form sextile aspect with Venus and Sun after November 2009. From 19th December, 2009 onwards, Jupiter will be aspecting Natal Venus, Sun and Pluto. From May 2010 onwards, Jupiter will be transiting over natal Saturn, which is retrograde, and it will also aspect exalted Mercury. Astrological predictions-
Ganesha feels that Akshay Kumar's planets are in a good phase as Saturn will move from Leo to Virgo on 9th September, 2009; Akki has Sun, the significator of fame, and Venus, the significator of arts, in Leo.
During the past two-and-a-half years, Akki had seen some hard times because of Saturn's adverse transit over Sun. The FIR filed against him and wife Twinkle for the Lakme Fashion show debacle is a case in point. However, since transiting Jupiter was giving exalted aspect to natal Jupiter during 2009, Akshay was also awarded Padmashree. The period between 9th September, 2009 and 19th December, 2009 is good for Akki. He will hog the limelight during this period. Between October 2009 and May 2010, he will enjoy his stay at the pinnacle of whatever he does, though there are chances of some injury. From May 2010 onwards, Akshay Kumar's stars will be shinning brightly, and he may also work for Hollywood or foreign films after that. From May 2010 onwards, Akshay Kumar may also get into social work.
In short, the year ahead promises good things for Akki. Ganesha sends him good wishes.
