The city might not be in immediate danger but rapid melting of icebergs in Greenland will have impact on the Manhattan city of New York in near future. The rising sea level, flooding and storm surge are the key climatic problems in the region. The rising temperature poses heath risks for resident population that ranges from asthma and allergies to other serious health hazards.
CHAIR-FUL IN NEW YORKA few years back, I stood outside the prestigious New York Comedy Club thinking to myself, “This is it!” I had been looking forward to performing there for weeks, and had finally managed to get a small slot at their 5 pm open mic. I entered the room to notice a small audience of 12 people and wondered, “This is it?” Apparently, they weren’t the audience either; they were the other comedians from the line-up. This was a moment of revelation: The number of struggling comedians in New York is more than the number of plot holes in Batman Vs Superman. My first show in New York was really in front of empty chairs (and surprisingly, they didn’t laugh even once). It was a disappointing first-time experience but I did the clever thing of taking a photo on stage and posting it on social media, so people thought that I had an insane show. Later that week I did perform for an audience and had a great time, but stories about failure are always fun to tell.If you see him running around and shrieking backstage, don’t assume that he has ‘lost it’. That’s Sapan venting out his nervousness before the show.
