How to turn (partially) invisible

A WOMAN NAMED Melanie in Ventura, California had a strange experience while sitting on her own living room sofa. While just staring at the wall, she became, she believes, invisible. Her husband walked around the house looking for her. He even walked right by her – just a few feet away – and did not see her. The episode lasted about 10 minutes, then suddenly she was visible again.


From time immemorial, man has found ways to push the limit of his physical and mental capabilities. We have learned to fly, landed on the moon and conquered the highest mountains and learned to extract the resources deep within the earth. But one power eluded him, the power of invisibility. Until now…

Latin for everyday use

I came across this on the MIT site and since I’m currently suffering from a case of lazyie assemia (the lazy ass syndrome), i thought I’d share some of them with you. See how many you can use in a week:

My first demotivational poster

I’m having a bit of writer’s block with plenty of drafts and not a single one good enough to post. So I thought I might try my hand at a little demotivational poster of my own. Demotivational posters are parodies of the original Motivational posters and are usually quite funny and sometimes surprisingly inspirational. There are many sites devoted to these posters and a quick Googling will return tons of them. Anyway, this is my first crack at it and hope you like it.

Frequently asked questions about Mizoram, Part I

Hailing from a remote part of the country, I get a lot of strange and sometimes funny questions about Mizos and Mizoram. In fact, it sometimes surprises me that so many highly educated people know so little about my home state. Ask anyone from outside the North East to pinpoint the exact location of any of the seven North Eastern states and chances are they will get it wrong. So, to fight the dark curse of ignorance that dwells in the minds of many non-North Easterner, here is a compilation of the questions people ask me about Mizoram and the Mizos and the answers to those questions:
