Do you know, what really grinds my gears? Mosquitoes!
Yes, those little suckers are deadly. In fact they are the most lethal species, deadlier than shark, lions, or any other animal for that matter. In fact all animals combined would not match the harm that mosquitoes make.
Check this video /infographic /or should I call it videographics? (ah, new term!!). The video lists most lethal animals who are responsible for human deaths. I was waiting for the twist & the surprise; and I got one. I thought, humans kill most humans (murders and accidents), obviously. And I thought, they would miss including the humans in the list of animals. But I was stunned at the end.
Mosquitoes are dangerous; and I want to get rid of those. Ah! who doesn’t want to get rid of them? All of us, right? Except you might not know what mosquitoes are if you are living in colder regions of developed countries.
I hope you all remember, Mr. Bill Gates opening the jar of mosquitoes in TED talks. Well, that did the trick, I think. Many labs are working on mosquito borne diseases such as Malaria, Dengue, Chikunguniya
There are experiments that could prevent mosquitoes to reproduce, but what are the consequences of eradicating the entire species is unknown and dangerous.
Vir Das, the comedian, actor in Bollywood has more active and less popular facet that you might not know. Perhaps he’s one of very few people in the film industry who are real, well versed & make sense.
He’s pretty active on social media, so go, follow him!
Just tweeted. 100% of my followers can see this post.
Somedays I want only 8-12% of my followers so see my posts, that's when I Facebook 🙂
Flipkart.com has been one of the most successful Indian dot coms. The co-founders of flipkart- ex-employees of Amazon launched the website before Amazon saw market potential in India. Amazon now entered in Indian market with Junglee.com but flipkart is leaps ahead and surely going to keep no.1 position for years to come. Still, I’ve never used flipkart, which might look strange for person like me, who’s very active on the internet. It’s not that I prefer some other e-commerce site over flipkart. But honestly, I’ve not purchased anything online lately (except few apps from itunes). So I spent some time on flipkart.com and also added GMAT book purchase window for my Indian visitors, who now have option to buy GMAT books from flipkart.com (ckeck out the side bar on right!).
Now, when I thought, it’s time I should fulfil my “wishlists” I checked flipkart rather than amazon.com. And to my surprise, most of the books are cheaper of or at same prize than amazon. Look at the Harry Potter Book set banner for example: 20+% off on complete series book. And then I noticed Harry Potter’s Signature Edition Collection Box, a set of all HP books at less than 2,000 Rupees! 40+% off- that’s a steal! Get the Signature Edition at 1,979 Rs (less than $35!)
