If you have 5 minutes...

What does one do with an empty day? Thank God for the opportunity and sit back with Coke and some phenomenal reads. Here they are, each one of them worth a read, but if u have time for just one, it would be this one (don't miss it) :

Prof Madhukar Shukla on An Invisible Revolution in India.

Here are the others:

And i loved this article for its one liners. Samples below the link:

"Want to know if a tree is healthy? Look at the leaves and the fruit. These are indicators of the health of the tree. Just because we give our tree lots of fertilizer, water, and sunlight does NOT mean it is healthy. These are all very smart things to do, but they do not guarantee health, and the only way to evaluate health is to examine the tree and not its environment."

" correlation is not the same as causality. " - aah, the no of times one has banged one's head on that one point.

Appy reading, while moi moves on to the next link...

I'm reading "In Defense of Food" by Michael Pollan. It is about the dangers of the "Western" diet and how to break free of the problem.

Now reading Big Bob Gibson's Barbecue Book. Don't know if you do meat or not, but there are some pretty mouthwatering recipes in the book.
