Acadia National Park

Well.., so this memorial weekend we had our long awaited camping-plan at Acadia national park, which is situated at northeast part of Maine and off the Atlantic Ocean. I had heard about it thru my friend when he had visited there few years back and showed me few snaps...! So the plan was long due and in the end it turned out a memorable event! We drove on Friday evening from B’more to NYC, picked up our first buddy, had dinner there and headed to New Hampshire the whole night, crashed down at another pal’s place…and next morning we all continued remaining part of the journey and thennn… 3 days full fun time!

Acadia National Park is one of the most beautiful and enchanting natural places on the North American continent. Mountains, islands and ocean combine in a unique sensory splendor that has become the crown jewel of Maine and all of America. Rocky coastlines, Granite Mountains, lakes and ponds, moss and evergreen, crashing waves and abundant wildlife mix with local character and seafood in this magical place. Borders of the park are accented by picturesque harbor villages. Apart from camping, camp fire, roaming at late night in pitch dark, playing never ending cric game and then sea-soccer, making tea at sea shore, n getting up at 3-30 am to see the sun rise as it is the first place to see it in united state; other memorable event was having an Ostrich for lunch. I tried Ostrich meat first time in my life and I tell you it is yummy-mouthwatering, leaner red meat dish…so better you hurry all enthu souls...;)

On the whole, it was a wonderful road trip and all who enjoy exploring nature should definitely give your best shot to visit this park...!!

Happy Mother's Day

Mothers hold their children's hands for a short while, but their hearts forever.

Its mother’s day today…I called up my mom in the morning…the first thing she asked me if I had breakfast yet?...I am living here, away from my home, since last 5 yrs n so, n whenever I talk with her on the phone, she always ask about my food and health first…!

There is simply no way we can ever really thank mother for all she has done for us. She is the one who will be awake all night when we are sick. Praying to God to make us well and be ever ready to bear the pain that we may be experiencing. She is the one to wake up early in the morning to make the nicest tiffin and endure all our tantrums. No matter how old a mother is, she watches her children for signs of improvement.

I think no gift to your mother can ever equal her gift to you and to me there's no need for mom's day because every day to me is Mom's Day.

H2 O

World Water Day occurs each year on March 22, as designated by UNGA resolution. I remember, while doing my post graduation, I was working part time with UB Green and on this day, we used to commemorate, make poster presentations n speeches for little awareness among students n so society.

The world water crisis is one of the largest public health issues of our time. With some 700 million around the world currently suffering from water scarcity, a figure that could increase to more than 3 billion by 2025

Nearly 1.1 billion people (roughly 20% of the world’s population) lack access to safe drinking water

The lack of clean, safe drinking water is estimated to kill almost 4,500 children per day

Some of these countries have additional problems, including high levels of arsenic and fluoride in drinking water

Many women and young girls in rural areas must trek as much as six miles everyday to retrieve water for their families

Without question, the world water crisis condemns billions of people to a perpetual struggle to survive at the subsistence level
