Traveling to Amsterdam: Cheap Flights Information

Useful Links
Amsterdam City BridgeAmsterdam, the capital city of Netherlands, is also the largest city. It is part of the sixth largest metropolitan area of Europe. Amsterdam is one of the most romantic locations in the world, and has wonderfully diverse culture, impressive architecture, heritage, and nightlife. In this article, we will deal with cheap flights to Amsterdam.

AMS (Amsterdam Airport Schiphol) is one of the busiest airports in the whole world. Accessing Amsterdam from the UK and other European locations is pretty easy with airlines such as bmibaby, Flybe, Easyjet, and Jet2 serving the Schiphol airport. Besides Italy, Germany, Switzerland, and other European locations, various important cities on the UK, Ireland, and Wales have cheap amsterdam flights.

Though you may be told otherwise, you can get surprisingly cheap Amsterdam flights, all year round from any location in the world—may it be Asia, the US, or Africa.

Amsterdam is a very popular romantic destination. Visiting Amsterdam doesn’t need a particular month or day. However, during the winter, the daytime is shorter (sometimes approximately 10 hours only). Even at such times, cycling around the city is pretty comfortable. Amsterdam is a city of cycles, with as many as 500,000 of them around the city. It is also one of the locations with high rate of bicycle theft.

Though it is thought Amsterdam is not a good family destination, the children may be kept away from the Red Light district, located South (less than half a mile or so) from the Central station, the main train station of Amsterdam. The Red Light district is the main home to adult entertainment of Amsterdam. Other than that, Amsterdam is pretty family-friendly.

Visit Amsterdam and Enjoy!

What Is the Difference Between Hardcover and Paperback?

Today, my reader, Rahman contacted me with a doubt:

Dear Lenin, would you explain why there are two types of books: hardcover and paperback?
This is quite a simple affair and there are explanatory articles to be found at various places on the Net. Here is my addition.


A hardcover aka hardback is a book bound with thick protective cover, with usually a paper or leather dust jacket over the main cover. The aim of hardcover is protection and durability. These books are mainly for long-term use and collectors’ editions. Hardcover books last far longer than the corresponding paperbacks. They do not get damaged easily thus making them perfect for reference guides, great literary works, etc.

In addition, there is a difference in the type of paper used to print hardcover books. The paper used is long-lasting acid-free type. Acid-free paper has a pH value of 7 (neutral) which makes it highly durable. The papers are stitched and glued to the spine.

Hardbacks are prepared for commercial …

En Dash, Em Dash, and Hyphen

We have three types of dashes in use: The hyphen, En Dash, and the Em Dash. In this post, we will see how to use them all correctly.

Hyphen (-)

The hyphen is the minus key in Windows-based keyboards. This is a widely used punctuation mark. Hyphen should not be mistaken for a dash. Dash is different and has different function than a hyphen.

A hyphen is used to separate the words in a compound adjective, verb, or adverb. For instance:

The T-rex has a movement-based vision.
My blog is blogger-powered.
John’s idea was pooh-poohed.

The hyphen can be used generally for all kinds of wordbreaks.

En Dash (–)

En Dash gets its name from its length. It is one ‘N’ long (En is a typographical unit that is almost as wide as 'N'). En Dash is used to express a range of values or a distance:

People of age 55–80 are more prone to hypertension.
Delhi–Sidney flight was late by three hours.

In MS Word, you can put an En Dash either from the menu, clicking Insert->Symbol or by the key-combination, Ctrl + Num…

What Is the Meaning of the Word 'Ghajini'? Story and Trivia of Aamir Khan's New Film [Special]

[Special Entry]

Aamir Khan's latest film is titled a little weirdly for the taste of Hindi filmgoers. 'Ghajini': They have never heard of such a name, and such a word never existed in Hindi or in any other Indian language.

The name Ghajini is the name of the villain of the film. In Tamil version, the name of the villain was Laxman.

As a Tamil moviegoer, I have already watched Ghajini and know the story in full.

So, What Does the Title Mean?

In Tamil, the title of the film is inspired by the story of Mahmud of Ghazni, an ancient invader of India. This person was so persistent in invading India that he continued trying after several failures. In the film too, the protagonist is such persistent in finding out and killing the villain of the film, who had killed his girlfriend, Kalpana (played by Asin). Aamir's Character (named Sanjay Ramaswamy in Tamil), is a short-term amnesiac, who cannot remember anything more than fifteen minutes.

You may ask then how the Ghazni became…
