Have found some interesting sites about the great Indian Epic 'Ramayan' which I am putting here.
Astronomical Dating of the Ramayan
(Though I have my curiosities about this)
For detailed analysis, you can refer to this page, this is really very-very elaborate.
Ramayan was also made into cartoon movie by a Japanese Director Yugo-Sako. I had seen the movie on cartoon network sometimes and was a proud owner of the video CD as well. This is an old cartoon (by some 10 years) but a brilliantly made one. I am wondering where I can buy it again.

This poem was a birthday gift to me from a very good friend of mine.
What better could I ask for :)
If you can keep your head when all about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you,
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too,
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don't deal in lies,
Or being hated, don't give way to hating,
And yet don't look too good, nor talk too wise:
If you can dream—and not make dreams your master,
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim;
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you've spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build 'em up with worn-out tools:
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it all on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breath a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on when there is nothing in you
Except the Will which says to them: "Hold on!"
If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much,
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run,
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And—which is more—you'll be a Man, my son!

Tyger Tyger. burning bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye.
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
In what distant deeps or skies.
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand, dare seize the fire?
And what shoulder, & what art,
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat.
What dread hand? & what dread feet?
What the hammer? what the chain,
In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp.
Dare its deadly terrors clasp?
When the stars threw down their spears
And watered heaven with their tears:
Did he smile His work to see?
Did he who made the lamb make thee?
Tyger Tyger burning bright,
In the forests of the night:
What immortal hand or eye,
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

Pointillist is a collection of programs for inferring the set elements affected by a perturbation of a biological system, based on a collection of evidences. It contains four programs: Data Manager, Data Normalizer, Significance Calculator, and Evidence-Weighted Inferer. First two are for data retrieval,manipulation and normalization. The Significance Calculator is a program that can analyze the probability distribution of a set of observations, and compute the statistical signficance of each observation on the basis of the distribution.The Evidence-Weighted Inferer is a classification program that attempts to divide a set of elements into two sets, affected and unaffected. It compares multiple evidences to determine which elements of a network are most likely affected by a perturbation of a system.Overall, just another machine-learning program.
