The Insect Effect

The owner of this company believes that beehives are a good omen, they predict financial gain.
Hence, no beehive made anywhere in the company is destroyed. As a result, from the 9th floor lobby, where my office is, you are treated with the sight of a huge swarm of bees building their nest and playing around outside the window everytime you wait around for the lift - which I assure you is a long wait.

This is the season that insects abound in Gujarat it seems. Everywhere you look, you can see tiny red ants busily working away. There are hair thin spiders industriously weaving nets and smller stubbier ones at unexpected corners.

As if this daily bombardment wasnt enough, yesterday I was channel surfing, and in the middle of a phone conversation paused on Nat Geo. Guess what programme started in a minute or so? Youre right! A documentary on how insects evolved and how the tiny ones help in decomposing carcasses in various landscapes. Beautiful sight assure you (sic)
Especially when you are tied down to the charger and the remote is exaclty that - at a remote location.

Today I open Wikipedia, and the photograph of the day happens to be - you guessed right! Of a citrus root weevil!

Ah insects.

Perhaps a Dirx paradise, but Dips definitely doesnt want a share.

*euugh*

theres
a massive bee hive outside my room at office, every year we get it removed and they return every time, whenever they come, we are flooded with business, and when they leave drought sets in, may be(e)a coincidence, but thats what happens..

Almost a paradise for me. I happen to be deathly afraid of anything that swarms, so my love of all things buggy stops short at beehives and the like. I'm not opposed to disposing of those with nuclear weaponry if that's what it takes.
