We visited Pradeep and Sulakshana Barthakur at their home in Jorhat, where they run a centre for children. (Pokamura, 7km from Jorhat)

Their home is a veritable garden of Eden which they share with all kinds of beings:

Happenings in my apartment building..

September 17, 2007

I have posted a few photographs of the Independence Day and Ganesha Chaturthi celebrations to a Flickr account, at

Some of the children’s fancy dresses were SO nice! Some of the gods and goddesses really didn’t behave themselves yesterday; some of them refused to sing, some of them started late and then wouldn’t leave, but with children…however they do it, it’s fun!

Medium = Large

April 26, 2007

Can anyone (especially the many folks I know at Yahoo) tell me why, on Flickr, the Medium size of a picture is the same pixel size as the Large? And why have two “sizes” at all, when they are the same? (They used not to be, earlier. The Large size was inconvenient for LJ as it would often overrun page width.)

Problems with posting pictures…

September 16, 2006

….

Flickr, where I used to post my pictures before posting them on LJ, used to tell me things like “you have posted 2% of your month’s quota” or stuff like that. Now, suddenly, it says I have posted 200 photos and now the older ones will be hidden until and unless I upgrade to a paid account. I have tried deleting the older pictures but that doesn’t seem to work, it says I must delete my newest uploads ( I don’t know why!).

If I delete a pic that I have posted on LJ I will get a blank display on LJ, as I have experienced.

sainath suggested that since I am using Picasa on my laptop, I upload to Picasa web albums. But I spent all morning trying unsuccessfully to upload; I dont’ know enough to understand why I am unable to (I was uploading only 4 pics!)…

I want to know, if I have my pics on my hard disk, is there a way I can directly post them to LJ?

Can I open a new account with Flickr and use that (or will it log my IP address and refuse)?

Oh, the difficulties that come with ignorance….I have some pics I took of the examples of bad design on the Jayadeva flyover vis-a-vis bus stops, and I am not able to post the pics….

If someone could help, I would be very grateful!
