What happened-You are now over 40

I always thought I would never be old at least at heart. I generally never suffered from any chronic disease-Blood pressure, sugar, hyper tension etc. I walked a lot in the morning and evenings making no point in having any ailment. Though my eyes got irritated working all day on Laptop but I could not do anything. That is my bread and butter. That was my survival. I would go to the eye specialist who would give me eye drops to keep eyes moist. I would be fine in a…


Arguing with Wife

Arguing with Wife

Do you argue with wife? I always told my wife,” Check each piece before you cook anything or even wash anything in water.” She always replied, “You are too much. I know what to do. I have been cooking for years. Don’t teach me my dear husband.” The last words “my dear husband” always melted me making me quiet. It was Friday evening -the beginning of weekend. I came from office at about 8.30 and saw White Beans dipped in a large plastic glass. Anandi said, “See. I will prepare…

Missing

I knocked on the door but my wife did not open the door. I said, “Sorry, I will not flirt with any girl in future.” But she did not open the door.

I smiled and reversed the direction of the car towards my six year old daughter. She had the remote in her hands. She loved playing with cars. I always…

Boost food production by fixing a flaw in photosynthesis

Boost food production by fixing a flaw in photosynthesis

One of the evolution’s biggest mistakes has been the enzyme that grabs hold of CO2 and adds it to a carbon chain, holds an oxygen molecule by mistake. This generates toxic molecules that plants have to expend energy to mop up. Initially it was not a major issue since there was little oxygen around. But subsequently it became a problem as oxygen levels rose and CO2 levels declined. The grabbing of oxygen by mistake called photorespiration now happens so often that it has reduced photosynthesis efficiency by 50%. But the…

Unlike the conventional cigarettes the heat…
