Rodney was one of the most famous palaeontologists in the city. His work on dinosaurs and fossils had earned him acclaim from all around the world.

Seeing the skeleton of the plesiosaur in their backyard one early morning, his daughter Laura literally yelled her guts out.

“Daddy, why do dinosaurs look so scary. It seems as though they are always angry and ready to bite someone?”

“Laura, one of the main reasons they look scary is because we palaeontologists only have their skeletons to reconstruct their entire body shape and size. And we tend to be biased in our analysis.”

What do we miss the most about our loved ones?

Family & Friends..

Our loved ones are our world. They help keep us happy and smiling all the time. Whether in times of distress and despair or in times of happiness, their presence helps keep us sane and grounded. But what if we don’t have them around us?

There are so many times in our lives when we fight or have an argument with our friends and family. While in most cases, we are able to resolve the matter after a bit of talking, there are some cases, where arguments cause irreparable damage so much so that people stop talking to each other for years. One of the biggest reasons is ego as both the parties think that the other should apologize. Meanwhile, life moves on and people end up losing track of each others lives. It’s as though those loved ones become unimportant.

“The smell of the earth courtesy the season’s first rain is something I have always cherished. The nature around seems so fresh and pure.

Taking advantage of their extended weekend, Ramesh and Ila had taken off for a short vacation to the nearby hill-station. They were greeted with light rain and greenery all around as far as the eyes could see.

Sitting in the veranda with piping hot coffee in one hand and delicious snacks in the other, they were lost in each other as one interesting conversation gave way to another and finally it was the time to leave.

Linda listened in silence as Sam expressed his utter disappointment. Disappointment was slowly turning into nervousness and fear. With consistent rains over the last couple of years, Linda and Sam had a bountiful harvesting season and lots to eat.

“Why did I have to agree to work in the lab the entire night?” He said to no one in particular.

Though George didn’t believe in ghosts, he felt a bit uneasy thinking that he was the only soul in the entire building that night. As he stepped out of the lab to drink water from the nearby cooler, he heard what sounded like water falling from somewhere. Was it a leaking faucet or something more?

Whatever the case, he kept himself busy and didn’t dare come out of the lab for the rest of the night.
