"The name for the seventh book of 'Harry Potter' series announced - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows"
This is the final book of J.K.Rowling's evertime hit 'Harry Potter' Series. There are speculations that she must kill Harry.
Thanks 'Headlines Today' to get me the news fresh.
Harry Potter - a wizard boy, whose parents were killed by the Dark Lord -Lord Voldemort- the most dangerous wizard ever lived, and whose name was frightened the whole wizards world. The wizards world called him "You know who" or He who must not be named". Harry Potter was the only one survived the Imperius Curse (Avada Kedavra).
Voldemort tried to kill Harry when he was only a kid of one year old. But Harry survived surprisingly with just a scar left on his forehead, and all the powers of Lord Voldemort gone.
As Harry's parents were killed by Voldemort, Albus Dumbledore -the headmaster for the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry- brought him to his uncle and aunt's possession. Harry's uncle and aunt both were Muggles (Non Magical People) and both were hated Potter family being wizards. Uncle Vernon, Aunt Petunia and their son Dudley treated Harry in a sarcastic way. He lived his whole life in 'Private Drive' in the cupboard under the stairs of Dursley's home until he got his admission in the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.
In his 10th birthday Rubeus Hagrid -the half jaint- brought him Diagon Alley to purchase his study materials and school essentials, even though his uncle and aunt tried their maximum to prevent him from joining the school. Hagrid gave him the ticket for Hogwarts express and left. It was from Hagrid he know about the wizards world and even the fact that he was himself a wizard!!!
With the help of a wizard family (Weasleys) he met at London railway station, he found the platform 'nine and three quarters' from where the Hogwarts Express departs every September 1 at 11am without fail.
In the Hogwarts Express he met his bosom friends Ron (Ronald Weasley) and Hermione Granger who help later his encounters with Lord Voldemort.
As the story develops through the six books we can see some similarities between Harry and Voldemort such as both were Half-Blood, orphans and Parselmouth (one who can speak snake's language).
The name announced book 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows' is the final of Harry Potter Series. Harry Potter fans all over the world awaits for the book eagerly as there is loads of rumors have already spread on this regard and people who love Harry looking forward longingly the release of seventh book 'Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows'.

" What the hell are you doing in my bedroom?... And who are you?"
" This is not your bedroom," the man replied, " I am St. Peter, and You are in heaven."
" WHAT! Are you saying I'm dead? I don't want to die! I'm too Young," said Rob. "I want you to send me back immediately."
" It's not that easy", said St.Peter. " You can only return as a Dog or a hen. The choice is yours."
Rob thought about it for a while, and figured that being a dog is too tiring, but a hen probably has a nice and relaxed life.
" I want to return as a hen."
And in the next second, he found himself in a chicken run, really nicely feathered. But now he felt like his rear end was gonna Blow. Then along came another hen.
" Hey, you must be the new hen St. Pe! Ter told me about," she said.
" How do you like being a hen?"
" Well, OK I guess, but it feels like my ass is about to explode."
" Oh that!" said the other hen. " That's only the ovulation going On. You
need to lay an egg."
" How do I do that?" Rob asked.
" Cluck twice, and then push all you can."
Rob clucked twice and pushed more than he was good for, and then ' plop' an egg was on the ground.
" Wow" Rob said, " That felt really good!"
So he clucked again and squeezed. And you better believe that there was another egg on the ground.
The third time he clucked, he heard his wife shout:
" Rob, for Christ's sake! Wake up! You're shittin' all over the Bed!"

This is amazing to see a Ferrari as a taxi in capital city of Kerala state in India -Thiruvananthapuram. I don't know the history behind it - but I am guessing that most probably this must have been won as a lottery prize in UAE.
I wonder how many people can travel in this car though - and where does one put the luggage?

We live in a society where there has numerous external factors affect directly or indirectly to us and hence shape our perceptions and hence outlook. These are also influencing our personality and shape identity. The effects of such factors can be negative or positive according to the nature of these factors.
Now, let us look in to these influencive factors. Broadly they are our physical environment and emotional environment. Physical environments are the society we live, the culture of the society, economic status of the society as well as ours, our family, friends, media, politics, arts etc. Emotional environments, on the other hand, are those which we engender ourselves out of the physical environment. We see the physical environment, we hear them, touch them and feel them with our sense organs. These feelings are further being processed in our brain on the basis of the culture we follow, the ethics we practice, and the perspectives we made out of the influence of family, friends, society and media (Say physical environment). This process is perpetual, more over unconscious. The net result of this process can be named emotional environment. Thus both the physical and emotional environments are interrelated and interlinked. Let us check how the emotional environment develops and how they influence us.
We can clear it with a small mental experiment. Take two persons from different physical environments. One is well educated and well settled and the other is illiterate and slum living. Both were standing in a street for a long and the sun was shining above their head. There is public tap besides them. Observe what would they do. It is quite obvious that the illiterate slum living man would drink from the public tap, while the educated well settled would not, thinking that it is not suite for his status or the water may be infective or germicide. He would be more comfortable with this thirst rather than drinking from a public tap.
Now let us analyze physical environment of both of them. The illiterate slum living – he is a man of little knowledge, financially weak and his environment is slum, his family and friends are also from the slum and their views and attitudes are also according to it. He cannot find any fault to drink from the tap. It is not against his ethics and it can do nothing to his status. But on the contrary, the second man is well educated. He can think of the germs, he was from such as family, society, which taught him to think like that, more over he has to think what other people may think of him, seeing him drinking from a public tap.
Now look in to the picture again and again, what should be the main reason prevents him from quench this thirst. Obviously is his consciousness of status —the thought what others may think— that is his emotional environment. On the other hand, the emotional environment of the illiterate man has the preference of quenching thirst. His emotional environment just says him to drink, not conscious of others, rather it is quite natural to him.
Now let us look in to the emotional ethics on us. Take the two same persons on account. The first one educated gentle man waiting in a bus stop. He is already late to his destination. His bus arrives but did not stop there, just slow down and kept running. What would he do? He may run behind the bus for a few meter and make a sound “Shhh…” or alike, but misses his bus. He will be further late to his destination. Place the second man– illiterate slum living on the picture. What would be his performance? He will run behind the bus making voice above all sounds and attract the driver’s attention to stop the bus. According to his emotional environment that is the right thing to do. And he is right too. What harm could it do if it helps to save your time or at least to be on time?
The emotional environment is purely influenced with our culture, ethics and perspectives as I stated above. This process may also be unconscious. But it is not completely out our control. We can essentially direct our emotional environment. How? The answer is to sharpen our ethics and perspectives with adding some logics to it. Rethink your views on matters, reactions on situations and perspectives of dignity and reconstruct them with the spices of logics.
I think it would be worth reading the last paragraph in a little more depth. My next blog will be on that purpose, so keep visiting my blog.

Even though it wasn’t my dream to be a journalist, I was passionate in the same from my school. As I started viewing Indiavision (A Leading Malayalam News Channel) Mr. Nikesh Kumar of Indiavision became my inspiration and I decided to take some initiatives to pursue MCJ and I look forward the job in ACV as a ladder to the same. Before joining for MCJ, I would like to clear for what extent my interest in this field will last and whether it is my field or not. Anyway, waiting for a call from ACV.

I would like to invite your attention towards a major problem that has been faced by almost all Indian cities, that is nothing but the increase in the population of street dogs. I would like to point out four things, firstly, the reasons of increasing population, secondly, the dangers behind street dogs, thirdly, the fundamental fights of street dogs as well as human beings.
The main reason for the boom in number of street dogs is nothing but the protection they are enjoying from animal lovers. In the past years the Government or Corporation was able to kill the roaming dogs to protect general public. But now a days they are well protected by associations. If any of the dogs hurts by anyone -even if it is a person or Government authority- the association come into seen and reacting. This is admirable for an extent, as they have also fundamental rights to live and survive, but it would be better to consider the public security also.
Most probably these dogs seems to be harmless, but in late nights they become violent and attack the people. A major part of these dogs are infected with various epidemic deceases and if they carry viruses such as Rabies the situation should be very dangerous.
The two wheeler drivers and pedestrians are more suffering from them. It is very common that some dogs bark towards the pedestrians or follow them. If a two-wheeler caused to ran over a dog, injury to the driver would be very serious and it will also very pathetic to see a street dog carrying a broken leg or a smelling wound and getting no medical support to them.
As I mentioned above, being a living thing, they have also have their rights to survive. To kill the street dogs is not a solution, instead there should be a considerable atmosphere produced for them to live. In Trivandrum city, the corporation took a different step to tackle the problem. The corporation dog catching team catches the roaming dogs streetwise and gets them to the nearest veterinary hospital where they went through a surgery to prevent further reproduction and give them anti-rabies vaccines. After curing their wounds, they get them back to the same place where from they caught. I think, it would be a better step to prevent the problem and if the Government or associations could look after these dogs for their life left instead of getting them back, it will be a better move. But as it demands a lot of money, a local Government could not handle it. There is the role of animal lovers and rescue associations lies. Instead of mere street speeches if they could come forward to help the Government to raise the fund out of their activities, it would be the best thing a real animal lover can do.

A bit about the 5th book 'The Order of the Phoenix'. I don't know how to describe its influence in readers, How we feel to Professor Umbridge is the main example, and I reckon it was not enough what she got, what she deserve.
If you don't tell anybody, I'll let you know how I was silly with fear as I went out of the house at 3:30 am. I was reading The Order of the Phoenix and went out for something, and I startled for a while thinking I have got no wand with me, and I forgot defensive spells against Demantors. Actually this is a good example for how J.K. Rowling succeeds as a writer.
I would like to wind it up with a URL http://www.jkrowling.com/ Just do visit it.

I have 16 hours to read and 430 pages left with me. The 5th book of Harry potter series—The order of the Phoenix— has been borrowed from my friend and has to give him back by tomorrow morning. I am damn busy to read it. (Actually not at all busy, but I am in front of a computer connected to the Internet, So, it’s obvious that I could not pay any attention to that book)
Then a bit about Harry Potter. I thought at first it is children’s literature, and paid no interest to read it. But my brother gave me the first book an advised me to try, and I went through the same, and it was then, as I read that, I came to know that, why the people running behind it. It was that much thrilling and I completed up to the fourth book and now reading ‘The order of the Phoenix’ the 5th of the series.
One more thing, which is essential to say that, ‘The Law of diminishing marginal utility’ does not work in this book. The Law of diminishing marginal utility states that, as a person increases consumption of a product there is a decline in the marginal utility that person derives from consuming each additional unit of that product. But in the case of Harry Potter Series, each of the books give more and more thrill and satisfaction.
- Avian Influenza, also known as Bird Flu, is an infectious disease of animals caused by Type A strains of the influenza virus (H5N1) that normally infect only birds.
- Thailand, Vietnam, China, Japan, South Korea, Indonesia, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Taiwan and Pakistan have reported outbreaks in chickens, ducks and wild birds.
- Infected wild migratory fowls are thought to be spreading the virus from location to location.
- Symptoms include high fever, diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain, pleuritic pain, bleeding from the nose and gums.
Human infection with H5N1: So far, most cases of avian flu in humans appear to have resulted from contact with infected birds-such as breathing in dust containing bird faeces, from contaminated surfaces, or from ingestion of uncooked or undercooked poultry or poultry products. Of the 139 people known to have been infected with avian flu as of January’06, 71 have died-a fearsome mortality rate.
To prevent risk of getting infected
Avoid close contact.
- Maintain distance from live chickens and ducks, even to ones that appear healthy. They are the major source of the virus.
- Avoid close contact with people who are sick. When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.
- Avoid contact with items or surfaces that may have been contaminated by birds.
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick.
- Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs.
- Germs are often spread when a person touches something that is contaminated with germs and then touches his or her eyes, nose, or mouth.
- All food from poultry, including eggs, should be cooked thoroughly.
- Seek prompt medical attention if symptoms like fever or difficulty in breathing or cough persists.

This is very funny to keep posted in blog page. Absolutely it's an online diary to me. I can inscribe anything and at anytime. Just as talking to a beloved friend.
It's very hot inside the café, but thank god, I've got at least an individual fan in my cabin. But I started to starve, but I can go for food only as Ansar come here, because I am in charge of the café today, that's how I could browse the net absolutely free. But I don't think it's a time waste to be here for a whole day, until I feel bored with Internet, and it's obvious that I am not going to get bored with Internet or Computes. That's why my friends call me "Virus" sometimes.

They went along to carry off
the grin belong to their own bloom
They trolled along to carry off
the grief belong to their own soul
They plough along to carry off
the belch belong to their own belly
They dug along to carry off
the drought belong to their own throat
They ran along to carry off
the time belong to their own days
They leave along to carry on
the genes belong to their own race
They halt along to carry off
the faults belong to their own way
They prayed along to carry off
the sins belong to their own life
Then rest along to carry off
the stress belong to their own doom..!!

A thought it was an everlasting relationship between people who were kept in mind some sort of equalities and tied up with an invisible string of love, that couldn't be snapped by any reason, and could find some time to find some time to be in touch with; whatever the circumstances may be and should have a tendency to share the grieves in between. It should not be a manifestation or mere correlation of two, but there should have a correspondency. All these were my view about friendship earlier, but as I came through the real life, I found it's contradictions was really exists.
It's as simple as a street speech to say the relationship should be strong and unbreakable. But in the flow of life who is getting some time to spend for others, and who bothers to share there grieves with others? As the life taken as a challenge or a game to be won, even very seconds we spent with others sharing all these and taking care of words spelled in a rush may worth a lot. I'm not for an argument with dreamers. But in fact, the word friendship works out only there, where is only a mood of happiness and stress free hearts exists, not in a place of grieves or pangs. Thus it proves itself that the friendship is for the celebration of events and victories, not for the sharing of grieves or loss.
Just think, who will have some time to keep in a part of other's problems and sadness, and what is really sadness? It is nothing but the lack of power to came up from falls, or the incapability to face the life with a positive mentality. As we accept the life packed up with ups and downs we are acquiring a power to face our loss and victories as equal—with a smile in lips— and takes necessary steps forwards to get up from the failure; not to bother friends as waverers. Leave them their own way and we have our best time with them, as we me meet our goals, or relaxation from the stress on way. Let the meetings for sharing the joys added with the flavor of wit, instead of thinking you loss your friends in rush of life or they are busy to take care of you, or even they are selfish in their way to spend their time with you when you are in problems. Then you will never feel like they avoid you.
I am not advising you to think in their part, but you can understand it by thinking your own stand, just by asking a few questions yourself. Instead of telling your pangs to your friends, could you ever find some time to be a part of their problems? If the answer is ‘Yes’, you are having a good friends circle and there will have no reason to say you are missing your friends, because many of us likes to keep in touch with such a friend who cares our problems and advising and leading us to a right path. Contradictorily, if your answer is ‘you have your own problems to solve or share’, it is obviously understood, why did you felt loss as your best friend said last time he / she was busy to chat with you, that you are just interested in manifestation of your problems but not interested in others’ situations. As you think yourself as a big loss, you feel yourself a sort of hero image. But your problems are only yours and if someone gives interest in it, you have to understand that it was his investment to gain something out of you, because even you pay no interest in others’ problems.
How long you think about others? If you can answer sincerely, you could understand yourself, to get attention or frame yourself was all your need and not with an intimacy or love with your friends, otherwise, you should have to understand their problems too, instead of cursing them to missing them.
It’s a recent trend among youngsters to send SMS like “I miss you”. What lies in these words are not the intimacy at all, but the sender’s mood of laziness or lack of jobs to do. It’s only then, when we are all free from assignments, we are thinking of others and ‘missing’ them. If you are filled up your minutes with assignments how can you miss others? How can you get time to think of your friends? Thus the feel of ‘missing’ is the devil of your own soul. That devil gets you only into troubles. You gets forced yourself into the thoughts like the meaningless of life and such sophisticated feelings of dreamers. That gets you nothing worthy, but despondency and lassitude. Instead, if you could expel your ill feelings and perplexities, and being occupied with your business, you can find your heights and thus you will get your friends’ attention and intimacy automatically, because as like you yourself, your friends are also like to be happy and if you tries to feed them with your pangs, they will feel their time with you as waste as they are also tired with their jobs and looking for relaxation. Now onwards, drive out or gulp back your devil inside you and keep a smile in your lips and a bit of wit in your heart. Then onwards your friends and frame will come to you and you will miss them no more.
