International Space Station….here she comes!

So another triupmh for Indian women !! Yes, Sunita Williams, after Kalpana Chawla, made us proud once again to be the second woman of Indian origin(she is half Indian, half-American) to board the Discovery..and most important part she gets to do the space walk making her one of the six privileged female spacewalkers, ever since America first sent an astronaut on a walk in orbit in 1965! Talk of men n their prejudice!!

Sunita Williams

And the reason for less number of women space walkers….is the existing spacesuits, which are not designed for small sizes. NASA’s explanation …it doesn’t have the budget to make small suits. I guess NASA probably didn’t anticipate that women would storm the final frontier. And what can we expect from a country which never had a woman president.. n their tall claims about gender equality!!

Anyway, its thumbs up for Sunita !!! Way to go girl!

It’s in the air….

Do I let it in or not?? Yes i can feel it in the air….it’s here…knocking on my door – all ready to be welcomed in. Well, I can’t really stop it. These natural phenomenons are simply not under our control. Every evening walking back home from work, I take a deep breath and can feel the nip in the air… it’s a great feeling. And I have this urge of takinga an evening stroll with my sweetheart, hand in hand, feeling the warmth, cold wind blowing against my face, sharing our little secrets…… Ok ok guys.. I will stop here. (People knowing me would be thinking since when did Farghana become so romantic… !! Guys..I too have a heart!)

Hey it’s here. Winter is here, once again. My favorite season is here. Winter brings along with it a deluge of celebrations – festivals, fairs, exhibitions, flower shows. It’s the time to party – Christmas parties, New Year Party, get-togethers, indulge in those sumptous Christmas cakes and other yummy stuff dished out by Kookie Jar and Kathleen, with it’s after-effects to be seen a month later. Any which way.. I just love the season and can’t wait to enjoy every moment of it!!
