Life has become really hectic these days. The whole week just passes by with work, stress, tension and the weekend comes. One hardly realizes how or where have all the weekdays gone! Well for most of us at work that’s the story. So when I get an opportunity to get away from all the hustle and bustle even for a day, I never let it go unavailed. That’s the very reason I jumped and said yes when some my friends suggested a one night outing at Pobitara Wildlife Sanctuary.
The ‘Assamese Meet’ organized by Ramjas College Assamese students in New Delhi on the 22nd of September, 2008, was a grand success. It was attended by over one thousand students from Assam, currently in New Delhi. It was a memorable experience to share a series of high quality cultural events performed professionally by students, well-maintained decorum and ambience by the organizers, and flawless continuation of events by event managers. Ramjas College Auditorium Hall was fully packed by Assamese students in traditional clothes.

It was past midnight on October 12, 2008, in Houston. While most Houstonians were sleeping, the visitor’s gallery at the NASA Control Center was alive and packed with relatives, friends and well wishers of NASA’s Astronaut Edward Michael Fincke. There was good reason for this. Astronaut Michael Fincke, popularly known as “Mike”, was scheduled to set off in his second historic space mission to the International Space Station (ISS).
