Wild Fact About Me I'm a wildlife biologist and have worked on monkeys, elephants and tigers !!
My Philosophy If we cant be good human beings, it doesnt really matter what else we do in life !!
What Gives Me Hope Hope comes from unexpected places... but when I meet people who think like me even in lands so far away, THAT gives me hope!
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Resign and hand the job over to somebody who can handle it. I'd rather stay in the background and advise him..
What/who changed my life and why Life is a continuous learning experience.. there is no ONE thing that changed my life. Influence comes from writers, conservationists, and those rare breed of people.. DOers!!

What Scares Me  
  Favorites
Role Models  
Quotation I would rather be ashes than dust! I would rather that my spark should burn out in a brilliant blaze than it should be stifled by dry-rot. I would rather be a superb meteor, every atom of me in magnificent glow, than a sleepy and permanent planet. The function of man is to live, not to exist. I shall not waste my days trying to prolong them. I shall use my time.

~ Jack London (American short-story writer and novelist whose works deal romantically with elemental struggles for survival. One of the most extensively translated of American authors. 1876-1916)

    Does what appears to the eye not disappear when the same eyes are closed? Thank you for allowing me to see what beauty is truly within your soul.  You are gorgeous.
