I do have the highest respect for our traffic policemen. However, they seem to come up with completely ludicrous ideas to control traffic almost with an astonishing consistency that would shame even the legendary Don Bradman. The sheer simplicity with which they create traffic in areas where there needs to be none makes me rub my eyes everytime I pass that way.
Case in hand, a relatively straight highway, steady traffic. Group of trafficpolicemen get together and think ‘Damn, everybody is going properly here. Things are very smooth. This cannot happen. We should stop this.’ They gather together and conduct detailed meetings till they finally hit it.
How to stop free flowing traffic ?
Stop the flow – SPEEDBREAKER !

As I was leaving college that day something particular struck me. It was not the fact that I would be leaving my home in roughly 9 months, but that I never fully appreciated the things that this place had given me. I’m not generally very attached to things – but once in a while I love something very strongly and deeply like a sketch pen [ Yes a man can love something other than a girl, albeit rarely ]. I thought about the things I love in this city, things I’m fond of, things I think are beautiful and adds character to the city and here’s the result.

On September 23, 2009 we had a nobel laureate visit our college campus. It was the Honeywell Nobel Initiative to put students like us in touch with eminent nobel laureates. It was perhaps once in a lifetime opportunity ( at least as far as my life has been so far ). I actually had a chance to meet one nobel laureate.
In my case, it was Prof.Eric.A. Cornell ( Professor for no apparent reason other than he was so much of what I dreamed professors would be like He is in fact a Research scientist at NIST ).
