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…

Flirting with a Girl! Her boyfriend comes

I was staying in Malacca which is now known as Melaka, a very beautiful city in Malaysia. I took a cab from my hotel to Melaka Botanical Garden. I was thinking it would be a 15 minutes drive but turned out to be 40 minutes drive. It is always traffic jam in Melaka whenever it rains. I reached Park at around 11.00 in the morning and looked out for ticket counter. There was no ticket but there were few Buggys that would take you inside the park so that you…


Smoking without Smoke

Smoking without Smoke

Have you ever heard of IQOS. It is I Quit Ordinary Smoking. This is a new way of tobacco companies encouraging smokers to smoke without being noticed by regulatory authorities across the globe. Philip Morris International (PMI) recently introduced heat sticks which is a heat not burn device popularly known as “Heets.” It resembles a white board marker and roasts tobacco resulting in emission of dry vapour for the inhalation of its user, minus the exhalation of a cloud of smoke on each puff. Unlike the conventional cigarettes the heat…


Angry Djinns slap at Jamali Kamali

Angry Djinns slap at Jamali Kamali

I do not believe much in ghosts and spirits but equally do not negate their existence. There are stories and believes that Jamali Kamali Tomb in Mehrauli Archaeological Park is contributing to ‘Bhooton ki Dilli’. Jamali was the alias of Shaikh Jamali Kamboh, a Sufi saint from the pre-mughal era. Kamali was an unknown person associated with Jamali. The tomb was named as Jamali Kamali as both were buried next to one another. When some DU students came to explore the park they didn’t feel any negative vibe though they…


Toilet Soap disappears

Toilet Soap disappears

It was 9’O clock on this lazy morning. I woke up and got ready to have my breakfast. I locked the apartment and went out in the nearby restaurant. I had recently shifted to another block of the same Condominium and hence it was necessary to lock the apartment though the security was good. The condo was very expensive and the tenants used to sublet the rooms to individuals to recover some money payable for rent. I was also sublet one of the room which was good and very clean…


Same person or four brothers?

Same person or four brothers?

I reached KTM Skypark Line and enquired about the timing and fare of the train. The man was tall and handsome with medium built and white uniform. He said, “The train will leave at 6.00 PM which is about 45 minutes from now.” I said, “OK.” I am very fond of travelling and exploring new places though it requires extensive walking and needs extra energy. I went to another KTM counter and enquired about the timings and fare of local train. We have 2 KTM’s in Kuala Lumpur, capital city…

Khooni Darwaza is a very famous spot in Delhi opposite the Feroz Shah Kotla cricket ground near Maulana Azad Medical College (MAMC). It is believed to be spooky especially in night.

Where is the Park?

Where is the Park?

It was Saturday and I had planned to visit Titiwangsa Lake Garden Park. It was nearly 9 stations from my accommodation on monorail, the only monorail operational in Malaysia. I was very fond of travelling and exploring new places. My initial stay in hotel when I moved to Malaysia had a very interesting travel guide and had this titiwangsa as one of the favourite hot spots for tourists. After lunch I set out for Titiwangsa and was very excited as I had keen interest in natural parks and ecological gardens….
