Monet's water lily series. He painted them during a period where he suffered from cataract. Ultimately he had his eye lens removed, which corrected the problem but allowed him to see ultraviolet light, thus the latter water lilies are painted in a more blue shade.Cracked by Nilanjana, and well Vivek and Varun KR got it, though didnt write the whole answer, I'll give it t them. Simply mentioning Monet is not good enough, cummon guys!

Sigh...since no one's got the funda as yet, here's the answer; clockwise from left - Matsyasana(The Fish), Koormasana(The Tortoise), Simhasana(The Lion), Dhanurasana(The Bow), Chakrasana(The Wheel), Vatayanasana(The Horse), Halasana(The Plough) - representing Matsya, Koorma, Narasimha, Rama, Krishna, Kalki and Balarama respectively; the ones missing being Varaaha, Vaamana and Parashurama. The connect being obvious; the ten avatars of Vishnu; the funda with Friday the 13th; oh well...you know which movie hits the theatres today!

ID the 4 pics and connect. Identifying the guy is difficult, so I'll give an oblique clue - the type of substances he first identified is of immense use in polymer synthesis.
Zuk hits on this - though the answer's quite popular. These are the precursor chemicals on which the Google Gulp Flavors were named. From top, beta carotene (Beta Carroty), Moses Gomberg (discoverer of free radicals, Sugar-Free Radical), Serotonin (Sero-Tonic Water) and Glutamic acid (Glutamate Grape).
the connect is laser
1. theodore maiman - built the 1st laser on may 16th 1960

Kubrick, Waters, Album art of Atom Heart Mother and movie poster of 2001: A Space Odyssey.Story goes that Kubrick requested waters for using music from Atom Heart Mother for A Clockwork Orange and Waters refused, a favor returned by Kubrick when Waters asked him for use of music from 2001: A Space Odyssey for one of his promos. Toughie, I guess.
Codename V came the closest and got half of it right.

Funda is that there was this chap named James Buck, a US university Journalism student who had gone to Egypt. There him and his translator were captured by the police and he used twitter to get himself a lawyer (he just typed "arressted" and people came to his help, giving him legal advice etc). He then tried to get his translator out. Mohammed.
