SOMETHING LIGHT

I have been getting this feeling recently that a majority of my posts deal with very serious thoughtful matters (the truth may be the opposite too) and bereft of any spicy tit-bits. So on an expert advise I have decided to give a hand on spicing up my blogs. Kindly bear with any disappointments.

A Unique Hotel :

There seems to be a world famous Hotel in Sweden, which is fully made up of Ice. The Hotel melts down every summer and is rebuilt in winter when visitors from all around the world check into rooms with sub-zero temperatures. I presume another unique thing in this Hotel would be that a Non Air-conditioned Room would be costlier than an Air-conditioned one. It would require a person to be pretty HOT to check into those rooms. Eh.

Unique Wedding :

A 43 year old female teacher in Seattle wedded her 22 year old student last week….Ooops, my thoughts suddenly went to one of our bloggers, a beautiful looking Research Scholar Professor in a Chennai college on whom, I am sure quite a few students would have a crush on………. I dare not mention the name.

Another interesting feature of this couple is that the teacher had got imprisoned a few years back on charges of raping this same student It can happen only in the US of A. Now, Indra Nooyi, you really had a point err… finger of view there in your speech. But one thing I appreciate here is that the "Abuse" laws in USA are equal for both genders. I think the Indian jurists should take a point from this, as I believe that there are quite a lot of cases in India where certain unscrupulous women have been abusing the "Dowry Harassment" laws against their innocent husbands. I am not saying dowry harassment does not happen, but abuse of law is also very much there.

Unique Town:
I read from Alka's blog that there is a town in Belgium called Geel, where mentally challenged people are treated as affectionately as any other normal person. Their behavioral aberrations are never looked down upon or stared at. In fact every family there I believe adopts a mentally challenged person to give them a near normal life. Truly, the most divine place in the earth, the heaven on earth.

  • I've heard of the ice-hotel before, and I also read about the teacher who had an adult relationship with a 13-year-old boy (she was 34 then) - man, that's as gross as any older man with a young girl!

  • Hari,
    From the previous blog to the present one, it seems like a fall from Sahasrara (at least getting towards your crown chakra) to Mooladhara (right down!) Anyway, variety is the spice of life.

  • I too wondered as to why abuse laws are always one-sided in most of the countries :)

  • Please post more about serious issues affecting society like you have in the past.

  • Hi Hari...the second part of your post and topical news items sorrounding the issue have prompted (provoked?) me to develop something on the same. Am I being cryptic on the subject? Read about it today or tomorrow, max! :)

  • Hi Hari:

    You are on camera at Chennai Central's weekend post (sorry to use a canned comment for all the bloggers for informing about that post since I don't have time to write individually to each). That post itself was many hours in the making :-)
