Books I read This Season ...

Blink by Malcolm Gladwell: - Got this Book from Jitu . Though Jitu never loves to share his books, but this time. He did! .

The best-selling author of The Tipping Point returns with a look at our ability as humans to make decisions, and the various factors that contribute to determine how quickly, and how well, each of us can make those decisions. But I found this book not as well as it was hyped!



KITE RUNNER by Khaled Hosseini : Thanks to Pooja for referring this book . It was four days back when Pooja, Abhiram and Myself were talking on phone (Conference mode) and we discussed on some of the don’t-miss-it books.

Its natural presence and depiction of human relationship makes a happy and nostalgic environment while reading. The first Afghani novel to be published in English, written by an Afghani physician and resident of California. Set against the backdrop of Afghanistan's recent turbulent history - this is the tale of two young boys and their fragile childhood friendship in Kabul.


The Da Vinci Code : - While I was in bhubaneswar, my sister "Nicku" told me that the novel "Angel and demon" is a must read. And to my surprise its the prelude to "The Da Vincy code". So I set out a target n completed Angel and Demon while returning back in train from bhubaneswar to Mumbai. Four months later , I read "The DVC" .

The Novel claims that Jesus and Mary Magdalene were married, that they had children, and that their descendants included a line of kings in France, as well as some of the main characters in Brown's novel. So popular has The Da Vinci Code become that it has created a marketing boom for books related to the novel, and it has become the subject of a major motion picture staring my favorite Hollywood actor TOM HANKS.


Digital Fortress
is an interesting book, in that you can learn a lot about cryptography by reading it. But I have to read it...

Double Yield from SRI Paddy Cultivation Technique

Here is my First Experience with the SRI (System of Rice Intensification) technique in Paddy Cultivation. From Documenting most of its growth through out last 3 months is amazingly feel good for me. 
In August we used single grain to transplant in a distance of 12 inches (though recommended 10 inches apart). In the Traditional cultivation the Distance is just 3-4 inches between the seedlings of Paddy while rowing. -see Picture below(left). The Results were astonishing , as for each single grain Produced an average of  900+ grains and that too without the use of any Chemical spray, fertilizer and insecticide. (Only Cow Dung Manure applied Prior to Rowing the Paddy ).  YES THAT'S IT !!
Again the Best Part is This year is without Rains and Water scarcity is all the way. Still the After Effects of SRI Technique Works brilliant .. Check out the Image Below: 
NOTE: The Real Assessment- Result will be done after Harvesting finally in next 20 -25 days.
