Today some scientists in Brisbane reported that they have developed a vaccine that can be applied as a nano patch and which doesn't need refrigeration. In countries such as India where refrigeration is still a huge issue this is fantastic news and fills me with admiration for these scientists.
Today it is reported that effigies of Ravana, representing evil, are no longer selling like hotcakes. Inflation and the cost of transportation as well as the crack down on large gatherings has meant that the traditional Ramlilas planned where the effigies are paraded and burnt have been curtailed.
Ramlila is an enactment of the Hindu Epic Ramayana.it talks about the life of Lord Rama.It begins with the Ganesh Puja on the first day of Navrati ( A period of fasting ) and continues for 11 days.On the 10th day Dussehra which this year is on the 6th of October effigies of Ravana are burnt to symbolise the triumph of Good over Evil.
Today is the first day of freedom from annoying SMS messages selling you an apartment you dont want in Noida or adding two inches to your height or to other more sensitive parts of your body !!
