Meet the orange man.

Vegetable art is taking the world by storm. This art that requires plenty of patience and creativity is admired by everyone, irrespective of age and culture.

In India, the wedding reception attracts quite a number of admirers of the vegetable art production that will be spread on a huge table.

Once, I watched for more than two hours an artist cut the red pumpkin and carved out a maharaja. Not once did he look up at me during the entire two hours.

What a concentration and dedication!

Vegetegarian desserts recipes.

A few decades before, a staunch meat eater will not like it at all if you ask to turn a vegetarian. Today, it seems like an easy task. Westerners who are born non-vegetarians now started accepting the fact that one can still survive without eating meat!

Initially, they found it difficult to eat vegetarian food as they were not aware of vegetarian recipes. If you tell them you can make cakes and ice creams without using egg, they would laugh at you.

Now, egg less cakes are sold in special counters in all the cake shops.There are many recipes for making vegetarian desserts, pies and puddings.

Using the chocolates, coconuts, milk and honey, here are 20 exciting vegetarian recipes for making desserts.

Will gold become a currency again?

If I say that there is a possibility of bullion becoming a true trading medium again, I might be called crazy. I don’t think people will learn ever even if they witness a dozen more economy catastrophe that will prove paper money as the most dubious form of currency to buy and sell goods.

What if I site one or two examples of gold being used as a medium exchange to buy and sell day to day needs?

Yes, I will be accused of fabrication.

However, I know for sure that in certain places in the world today, gold is treated as a currency.

In fact, I wish it to become a reality all over the world.

Buy pure gold in the form of coins and bars from the United States Gold Bureau, home to a large and dedicated staff of hard asset professionals and America’s best dealer in precious metals.

Can trees scare you?

Well, not all tress but tress that display bizarre formations due to vagaries of nature can scare even me, an ardent tree lover.

Look at these two trees for example:

Here is another tree-a betel nut tree in Malaysia showing bizarre natural formation.

What you see below is real. Yes, the head of the Budhha statue is real. The rest of the body is separated during the Burmese sacking of Ayutthaya in Thailand several hundred years ago.

The name given to such natural images is "Pareidolia". What we see as images in Moon and Mars also belong to Pareidolia. I welcome more images in this category.

Health food? Are you kidding?

Once, several years before when I got married, I used to impatiently await Friday newspapers because of articles about new restaurants, healthy recipes and ads for healthy foods.

I have relentlessly chased the restaurants to try their healthy foods.

Now, after 25 years, I have realized the stupidity of my assumption that all that appears in newspapers are genuine and authentic.

We really don't care to read between the lines of ads and we simply yield to enticing ads.

There are shocking facts that we all should know about the so called 'heath foods'.

One doctor took the pain of explaining to me that "health foods" are actually cleverly disguised junk foods that actually stimulate you to gain more belly fat... yet the diet food marketing industry continues to lie to you so they can maximize their profits.

What do you say?

Rural India might push up gold price.

I don’t agree with the recent reports in various media that the Indian rural population can’t afford to buy bullion and that is why they are buying silver in larger quantities than the city dwellers.

On any day, you can find large numbers of rural people in the crowded gold jewelry shops in Madras. Their purchasing power too has increased though they may not be informed bullion buyers like urban people.

Veteran precious metals investment analysts have opined that the silver demand has come down mainly because of poor patronage to silver by city population, which is contrary to the press release of U.S. Gold Bureau that says the U.S. has been buying silver since 1990 as they foresee a demand supply gap in silver.

The overall gold buying in India and China might push the gold price to $2000 in 4 months.

It is natural that you can't find anything clear in the picture below. So, view the second picture.

Hey, do you that this amazing fact was not discovered until 1975?

Scientists believe that many changing world geography, flora and fauna might affect this fantastic migration phenomenon.
