I am eagerly looking forward to tomorrow. Can’t wait to see the president Obama, interviewing the great David Attenborough. Two icons! Very few people captured the imagination of our wonderful world, the way David had done. His work over the years, filled with amazing visuals, stories and truly remarkable insights about our planet and its species has influenced my perception about life in general. He is a global treasure. His contribution to science and education surely complimented the works of Darwin and others. Thank you sir for showing the many beautiful things around us and our planet.

Without guessing, you can imagine, why I keep every one of his available blue ray as such valuable possessions!

The BBC interview is expected to get telecasted tomorrow (28th June 2015) 2.30 PST time. How I wish tomorrow came sooner.

As he moves to the 90s, couldn’t stop sharing the old video tribute from BBC. Let him live for many more years and open our eyes more.

Saw this first up on my Facebook feed. Initially, I’d gushed away, but later decided to take a look at the details. Glad that, I did. This is a mini documentary on the life of a man named Paul Smith. The amazing thing is that, he has made some marvelous art work, out of a few keys from a type writer, yes, the grand old type writer. Born with a severe cerebral palsy, he finds a new way to take creativity to super human level. Some of his works are simply stunning. Oh man, do we crib for simple thing in life? As they say, when there is a will, there is a way! All I can say is that, this man can easily be its guard honor. A special man, a special artist. Take a bow, Paul. Life is Beautiful!

I am quite saddened to hear about the demise of Professor Randy Pausch. The 47 year old CMU professor who was diagnosed with terminal cancer finally succumbed to death. It is unbelievable that, he showed courage to confront life when you know that there is nothing positive to look forward to. I have gone through his famous last lecture over and over and many a time wondered how can someone be so positive when the odds are so much against you to lean forward. Simply heroic. He showed us the value of life and the way to look forward to. I couldn’t agree more when he coined what “experience” mean,

Experience is what you get when you didn’t get what you wanted

Randy, may you rest in peace. Your life has changed many lives for good. You must be proud. You have truly left and enduring legacy. Our thoughts are with your family.
