Brainwashing – This is how our society is controlled by the medium.


Although something which seems out of a sci-fi novel, Brainwashing is very real and very common.

As per Wikipedia, “Mind control or brainwashing / coercive persuasion / mind abuse / thought control etc. refers to a process in which a group or individual "systematically uses unethically manipulative methods to persuade others to conform to the wishes of the manipulator(s), often to the detriment of the person being manipulated"

This post at life-hacker tells us about Brainwashing Techniques You Encounter Every Day (and How to Avoid Them)

Now you know why people you loathe, generally always succeed (in politics or whatever else).

Alphabetimals ! Now this is how learning gets interesting! Alphabetimals is something the inquisitive young minds will love!

It matches each alphabet with the animal name concept, which while not new, is presented in a cute and easily identifiable way! It really should help dads and mums with pre-schoolers on board!

The main USP is flip book approach with animal sounds as well as pronunciation of animal names.

Although I am yet to try this with my own 2 year old, let’s hope you there (and him here!) have as much fun on this as I did!


The Facebook page of the site offers posters and Flash cards which you can print for further offline fun!

Bonus Animal Alphabet video!

Now go ahead and have some quality time with your little brats!

Mystery Cometh… - Russian Scientists Drilling into 20 million year old Vostok, the Antarctic Lake, Fall Silent….


A team of Russian researchers in Antarctica from Russia's Arctic and Antarctic Research Institute (AARI) had been drilling for weeks to reach the 20 million years old subglacial water body.

“Vostok is thought to harbor conditions similar to those of Jupiter's moon Europa and Saturn's moon Enceladus, and the discovery of life in the lake's inky depths would significantly strengthen the prospect of discovering life on either of these icy bodies.”

AND Now they cannot be contacted. They have been under radio silence since 5 days (and counting).

The scientists were on the verge of boring the two mile ice surface and breaking in the lake which is as older as the Dinosaurs.

It may seem as a plot of a 2012 sci-fi thriller…. but you never know…. 20 million years is a really long time.

I mean, what course evolution or natural selection took, considering the ecology of something as frigid as this, is anyone's guess.

Countless movies have been made, mystery science fiction has been written, but still we are constantly inquisitive and human curiosity always needs proof.

But now what actually has happened is but a speculation limited only by our deepest fears….
