    A very special haircut 

    I have been here for just over 2 months now and it was time for a haircut. Since I am new here, I didn’t know where I could get one! So, I asked the owners of my accommodation to help me out and they asked one of their friends (who visits them every weekend) to help me out. It turns out that this guy works in the US Navy.


    He took me to the local Naval base since he had to buy some stuff from the store over there. When we got there, he said I could get my hair cut at the base itself! And I did just that J. I come all the way from India and get my hair cut at a Naval base in the US… and I had never been to a naval base back in India.


    I even did some grocery shopping while I was there!


    This is a comparatively small naval base and visitors are not allowed to take pictures inside. I can’t understand the reason for that, because everything is visible from the air! Just have a look at this view from Windows Live Local.



    And, this is how it looks like from a view point…

      Doesnt seem like it\’s gonna be that easy to enter naval bases here for quite some time as websites stay wary of showing aerial views out here. So crew cut and all ready for the summer eh?

    Must read blog for all Kannadigas 

    Churumuri. Just hearing that word makes me want to go to the ‘gaadi’ and eat some with extra ‘kaara’ added for good measure!

    Now, all you Kannadigas (or anyone who enjoys some good reading) can consume Churumuri in the hi-tech manner: Read the Churumuri Blog. Excellent stuff. Highly recommended.

    Kannada vs Tamil, English vs Hindi 

    Kannada vs Tamil, English vs Hindi


    I am never ashamed to speak in Kannada anywhere… It’s my mother tongue!!! And, the language I am most comfortable speaking in.

    Research says early humans were on the menu for predatory beasts 

    A news article in BBC, titled Predators ‘drove human evolution’, says we were the hunted and we became hunters much later!

    I guess we’ll never know the truth… i.e. unless time travel is invented (which is very unlikely).
