An awesome idea for Earth Day !!

Malvika got a gift from her company as part of Earth Day. It is a shopping bag that easily packs into a small size and can be fitted to your key chain, your belt or back pack. This solves a major problem I have been having with avoiding plastic bags i.e. remembering to take my own shopping bag. Great example of what you can achieve when you apply your mind to a certain problem.
You can check out the bags at

I for one have attached the bag to my car keys. A couple of weeks from now, I should know how useful this concept really is.

Bandipur Jungle song - now with a video

A while back I had posted our original song inspired from the trip to Bandipur National Forest.
Now I have a video to go along with it. All the video clips are from the trip we made to Bandipur. Most of the stills at the end are from awesome paintings in the rooms at Jungle Lodges and Resorts.

I made the video with Cinerella. I used the version that came with a dynebolic distribution of linux. It has a huge learning curve, but once you get the hang of it, it is quite powerful. This is my first attempt at doing a full video with Cinerella. In hindsight, I do wish I had a tripod or a much more steady hand with the camcorder.
