UBC scientist develops viable model for time machine
A US scientist has developed a mathematical model for a viable time machine – an advance that could bring stuff of popular science-fiction closer to reality. Using math and physics, Ben Tippett, from University of British Columbia in Canada, has created a formula that describes a method for time travel. “People think of time travel as something as fiction. And we tend to think its not possible because we dont actually do it. But, mathematically, it is possible,” said Tippett. E...

Satpura National Park: Crouching Tiger, Blazing Kusum
I have always been intimidated by the famed national parks of central India, NOT due to their widely publicized but rarely seen tigers, but due to the extreme temperature of the region. It doesn’t seem to cool down much even in the winters and I would never even have planned a visit in April with the mercury already crossing 40 degrees. So, when I got an invite by the Forsyth Lodge to visit the Satpura National Park, I was hesitant. But the itinerary they promised seemed action-packed, a...

Sidhpur Part II: The place beyond the pines
We left Zen Valley with an intention to indulge ourselves in some serious trekking. We could see the mountains on the horizon and very soon, after crossing the village of Khanyara, we found ourselves gaining altitude and looking down upon the valley. This is not a formal trail frequented by trekkers and has no fixed name. However, from what we could gather, these are as not far from the Triund trek, something I’ve already done twice. The direction was the same, so I could probably meet t...

Sidhpur Part 1: Delirious Spring
It was not exactly a part of the plan. I was planning for GHNP but I was told that I could enjoy hospitality for a couple of days if I enter Kangra (No, it was not a FAM invite from some resort, just a bed to sleep). Nevertheless, I did take the opportunity, expecting to spend a clue of relaxing days without doing anything. However, there was more to the place, so much so that now I am having to divide it into two different posts because I have too many pictures. The primary attraction include...
