Many homopteran insects feed on low concentrate plant sap. Their digestive tract shows a complex system called the ‘filter chamber’ where the extra solute water is made to flow directly from the initial to the terminal part of the midgut and the proximal regions of the ‘malpighian tubules’. The filter chamber of Cicadella viridis shows the intra membrane particles presence on the whole surface of the microvilli and of basal membrane infolded cells.



Resact is a peptide of sequence isolated from the jelly layer of Arbacia punctulata (sea urchin) eggs, is a potent chemoattractant for A. Punctulata’s spermatozoa. The concentration dependent chemotactic response is abolished by pretreatment of the spermatozoa with resact, and shows an absolute requirement for millimolar external calcium. A. punctulata spermatozoa don’t respond to speract (a peptide isolated from the jelly layer of Strongylocentrotus purpuratus eggs).

Pierced Body

I had an anxiety trying it first time. Surely, you’ll have the same thought if you already conceive the taste of fish. I am a Bengali and we are eating fish daily. But that was first time I had RAW fish. A big bowl of colorful RAW fish was served on ice with soy sauce for dipping, wasabi paste and gari. I was surprised because the bowl did not smell like fish that we usually get in our local market. It was edible to me on first look.

Hell of a Hailstorm

Bedni Bugiyal

It was middle of June 2011 and I was going to Roopkund, one of India’s top three treks. Having reached Bedni Bugiyal at 3,354m, I had planned to climb up to Bhagwabasa the next day. It was going to be a long trekking day, at least a 10hrs trek and all ascending. Now before I continue with the trek, it would be most injustice if I don’t give a small description of Bedni Bugiyal. The name Bedni came from the work Veda (ancient scripture of Hinduism) and Bugial means grass land. It was a very beautiful campsite; lash green grassland, snowy tops of mountain Trishul in one side, one small pond in the middle and two temples. On a sunny day you could see flock of sheep all around and it creates a very charismatic appearance.
