So, I searched for "indicaspecies" and just as expected, the full word wouldn’t yield any result. I know my nickname is unique. :D
The biologist that I was, next I tried "indica" and this is what I found interesting:
Biologists interested in the binomial nomenclature of plant (and at times, animal) kingdom would know ‘indica’ is the Latin name normally given to those species or sub-species originating from India.
According to Wikipedia, indica (or indicum) means "of India", or "Indian" in Latin and is applied to things connected with India or South Asia.
However, there are also references to indica without direct connection to India. For e.g., Indica Gallery, London; Indica Records, Quebec; Indica Metal Band from UK; Indica, a pop/rock band from Finland.
Pijush also suggested I search for "Celine" and as expected, there's a lot of information on the famous Dion. Here's what I find interesting:
Miracle by Celine Dion, the celebrity singer and Ann Geddes, the world renowned baby photographer.
What I read there is that Miracle is soft, gentle, and in a sentimental mood with a more restrained and quiet approach to the vocals. Celine Dion's attempts and eventual success in having a child are apparently well documented in it. This is a comforting album that has been at the top of the Billboard charts for weeks and reflects on the birth of a child, and includes special color photos of newborns by Geddes. More than 15 million books of Geddes have been sold in more than 50 countries. This album of Celine Dion shows her in a new light - motherhood. Sounds interesting and I shall try to catch hold of a copy of the same.
I tag all those visitors to my blog who are interested to check out their real name and blog name with this game.
I repeat, just one simple rule:
Go to the Advanced Book Search at Amazon.com, type your first name/blog name into the third field "title" and post the most interesting/amusing cover that shows up.
