The United Way

When Adam Lallana somehow scrambled the equaliser into the goal yesterday in the 89th minute, it brought back memories of what Manchester United have been in the past many years. Albeit on most of those occasions, it was Manchester United that did the late scoring to level or win matches. Read more…

Understanding Cyclones

13 October 2013 Leave a comment
Today I had a lengthy discussion with one of my engineering batchmates about how deforestation has increased the impact Cyclone Phailin would have on Odisha and other part of India on the eastern coast. It made me realise just how we never cared to understand and/or remember the Geography lessons imparted to us in probably class 5 or 6 (about pressure areas and the Coriolis Effect) and nor do we take the effort to research and understand the circumstances instead adopting propaganda driven opinions from media and social vehicles like FB and Twitter. It also gave me the idea for this blog post where I will try to put together at kind of Cyclone 101 for people to understand. Please note I am NOT a meteorologist or even a weather expert. I am just an ordinary guy who cares to form his own opinions rather than blindly adopt somebody else’s. I encourage you all to read and research more and definitely comment on the post and correct me if I am factually wrong in any way.

So, to understand the impact of cyclones, we first need to understand how and why cyclones form.

Manchester is Red

10 December 2012 14 comments

What a match! It lived up to the hype and pressure of being a Manchester derby, no less the match up of currently the top two teams in the English Premier League. Super Sunday did in fact turn into one for the red half of Manchester as RvP lifted a free kick in the third minute of injury time into the top right corner of Joe Hart’s goal to secure a nervy but deserved win for Manchester United. The match had a lot of points for discussion so I attempt to provide a few of them here. Read more…
