From Mind to Matter

As we enter into the age of 3D printers, imagine the possibilities of bringing imagination into reality! The world’s first color multi-material 3D printer can’t be too far from reaching our homes, and Stratasys, the makers of the printer seem to agree on the amazing capabilities of the human mind. “If we did all the…

A Seashore Story

Her feet had set tiny patterns into the wet sand, which were soon washed away by the inevitable rhythm of the waves. She made her way to the sand castle she had built a day earlier only to find it in ruins. It didn’t matter to her. With her plump little hands and plenty of…

Kumbh Mela

Kumbh Mela

It is the greatest show on earth- the Kumbh Mela. Ash-smeared devotees, wandering holy men with dreadlocked hair, saffron-robed pundits,┬átourists, gypsies and pilgrims from near and far all gather at the banks of the converging rivers Ganga and Yamuna to purify themselves.

Buried Treasure

Watch Your Attention

When someone kicks you on the shin, blood rushes to your head, you’re angry, and you want to retaliate. Back in school, soccer was a favorite sport among boys and girls alike, but all too often someone would get hurt on his or her knee or shin. Surprisingly, that didn’t stop the game. In fact,…

Unfinished Business

Unfinished Business

  It’s been a while since my last post. Things got pretty busy, and I didn’t have much time for the finer moments of life. Recently, I heard a tale about a lady who went seeking for some good old eastern wisdom. The energy of her twenties took her on adventurous trips in many eastern…

The Human Touch

The old woman smiles gently as her rough hands attempt to wrap fine wool around a large spindle. She struggles to cover her head often as a bitter wind sweeps her frayed shawl off, yet she looks peaceful as she continues to weave intricate patterns on a colorful fabric outside her hut. Not too many…
