If you have a 12 year-old niece/nephew and would like to encourage scientific curiosity, I would suggest that you do things
- Give him/her a copy of A short story of nearly everything, or better, Carl Sagan's Cosmos, and
- Explain the importance of promiscuity.
Even if the first point doesn't excite him/her, the second surely will.
Carl Sagan's Pale Blue Dot clearly makes him an AYM-GRAMD, but as the old redneck saying goes - a little AYM-GRAMD don't hurt nobody.
Train journey from Bangalore to Delhi : 52 hours Rs.1500.
Air Deccan : 2.5 hours Rs. 4200.
You would expect that the people who pay 4k for travel would have well-established concepts of decency and etiquettes. Please don't.
P.S: Is there a place in India where sex toys are sold? Would love to shock people out of their skulls.
