Today, spending my vacation, watched the movie ‘The secret life of Walter Mitty’. A fantasy / drama movie which describes the end of the career of a 16 year dedicated employee under the job title ‘negative assets manager’ in the ‘Life’ magazine which is about to be closed and so on… well, this little note is not to describe the plot of the movie, but to weigh a single line that I saw (and heard) in the movie. That is ; ‘If you really like the moment, don’t click it. Just live in it.’ Regardless of who … Continue reading If you really like it, don’t try to click it.
This is a common migratory species which is also known as Spotted Rustic. Notice that the outer margin of the hind wing is wavy and the black marks along it are almost uniform.

The newest field that made me feel so was Butterflies and Dragonflies. Even though I don’t know much about those tiny insects, who are so colourful and soundless, the exposure to the people who know about them made me interested about them. These … Continue reading Amusement
The National Independence Day of Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka is coming up on 04th February. Defining the word ‘independence’ in the above sentence, it is the fact that independence of administration of Sri Lankan territory is officially given to the Sri Lankans by the British crown. As a child I used to celebrate this event with my chest, full of pride about our nation and the brave souls who fought against the invaders. Looking back, I’d say that it was just because my adults tended me to do so. As I gained more exposure to the society and … Continue reading Independence ; since 1948.
