The city of romance, Paris, has also been home to some of the greatest thinkers of our time. Durkheim, Foucault, Comte, de Beauvoir are among the few that regarded this city as home. Nestled among the numerous cafes and museums lies the Institute d'etudes politiques de Paris (Sciences Po). More than 140 years old, it has traditionally educated France's political and diplomatic elite. It is located in the heart of Paris with the Notre Dame, Louvre and Eiffel Tower just a few blocks away.
I discovered a copy of “Tuesdays with Morrie” lying on a bench at a park on Singapore’s Tanjong Katong Road. I thought somebody had forgotten it there. Later, at another park I saw another book on a bench. Once people finish reading their books, they leave them in the park for anyone else to read. That’s how books in Singapore travel. I have tried it. It works just the way I thought and heard it would!
There’s a time in the year where men paint their faces, pull on brightly coloured stockings, bizarre wigs, jewellery and clothes borrowed from grandmothers. It's not some cross-dressing competition, but a carnival ‘le Carnaval de Dunkerque’, which occurs every February in a coastal town close to Lille. Even the ladies don bizarre outfits. Everyone joins the parade dancing across town, singing traditional tunes, carrying colourful umbrellas to catch fish thrown by the Mayor from his office. - Vidyun Rathore
Since Australia is a multi-cultural country, the food is diverse as its inhabitants. Major cuisines are Italian, Indian, Chinese and Thai. Snags (sausages) and steaks are usually barbecued in Australian gatherings. Lamb is the meat that Australians love, but you can also try kangaroo meat which is good for reducing blood pressure. Beer and wine is widely consumed - Australia boasts of some of the world’s best vineyards – Barsha Kansakar
American football is a religion at North Dakota State University, just as cricket is in India. The university stadium is Fargodome – ‘Fargo’ for the city, and ‘Dome’. The football is known as the ‘BISON’, after the state animal. Any game at FargoDome attracts huge crowds of university students as well as locals, who cheer on their team, who wear Green and Yellow colours. Everybody yells "GOOOOO BISON!" really loudly. – Deepak Dawar
