Parking problem haunts me even in dreams

Parking is a very serious problem in major cities especially in Delhi.

You cannot park your vehicle in narrow roads and in rainy weather when the roads are choked with water and become mini swimming pool.

Wide roads look good but again one floor/one family has 3-4 cars making it very difficult to park your car.

I dreamt of such issue in my dream today morning.

I got married to a slim dusky girl. I had to leave for office and was getting ready when she asked me if I could drop her to office.

I became irritated a bit but not much as we got married recently.

I used to walk a lot in the morning and in the evening. This was a sort of passion for me and had been doing it since childhood.

I did not take car to the office due to parking problems. It can take 10-20 minutes to park the car depending on the traffic.

The office was about 15 minutes walking distance and was good for my digestion. I had my breakfast before leaving for the office and then I gulped down 2 bananas and a cup of tea after settling in the office.

But today I had to go in the car as my newlywed wife had asked with a cute smile.

With the passage of time I will have to make her understand that walking is good for health.

I hope she will understand. Otherwise I will be left with no option but to drive her every day.

Oh my God what should I do?

Suddenly I felt a jolt and everything became blurred and within seconds disappeared.

My wife had shaken me as sun had come out and shining with full smile.

I was relieved as it was only a dream to drive car to the office and not having bananas with tea in the office.

Indians don’t kiss-48 cuts in film by CBFC

Indians don’t kiss and don’t use cuss words.

But the film “Babumoshai Bandookbaaz” has used many such words and is intense with kiss scenes.

The film directed by Kushan Nandy & produced by Kiran Shyam Shroff and Ashmith Kunder has star cast-Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Chitrangada Singh, Tahir Bhasin, Bidita Bag, and Roopa Ganguly.

The movie, filled with humor and romance, is a quirky ride into the life and times of a small time contract killer, Babu, played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui.

Generally actress does not take up this issue with CBFC.

But Bengali Actress Bidita Bag has taken CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani after 48 cuts were ordered in the film.

This Bengali lass has put messages on social media including instagram that Indians ladkiyan are very sanskari and do not use abusive language. Is it hypocrite society?

I do not understand when we will grow up?

We listen to Bakchod shows and reality shows including Splitsvilla where these things are common. Why such serials are not banned in India?

 

TEAL-World’s new favourite colour

A global survey by approx 30,000 people across 100 countries by UK’s Hull City of Culture 2017 during a paper exhibition has found new favourite colour-TEAL which has been admired by people on this planet.

TEAL- new colour was invented by Miss Marss who blended rich blue, grey and green tones that was inspired by colour on the river Tay, in her native town, Dundee, Scotland.

Do you know that Teal is actually a small freshwater member of Duck family whose eyes are surrounded by this colour?

Colours are associated with many things in life including our mood and behavior. This has a direct bearing on our working and may make us a good or a bad human being. This nature has impact on another person’s life in this world.

But nobody can decide whether it is blue or green. It’s you who will decide the intensity of colour whether it is blue or green.

 

 

 

I love you darling

I came early from the office. It was 7.00 PM in the office.

I thought I should spend some time with my wife. Today I will have two extra hours that can be utilized effectively.

Generally I reach home at around 9 in the night.

I called my wife at 5 in the evening and told her that I would be reaching home early today as my boss was not available in the office. Then we would be going out for a long walk.

My wife seemed happy as could be judged from her tone.

My wife was cooking for me when I reached home at 7.

She cooked my favourite items- Fried Potatoes and Masoor Dal.

I was very happy eating these dishes.

We chatted for 15-20 minutes and then she switched on TV to watch her favourite serial.  The serial was for 30 minutes. I watched TV for few minutes but it was not of my interest. I thought of reading newspaper. After about 20-25 minutes, my wife changed channel and was watching another favourite serial.

I thought of asking my wife if she was interested in going out but looking at her face I thought of not disturbing her. She was smiling while watching her favourite really show.

I picked up novel “Icebound” by Dean Koontz and was lost in reading it for a long time.

I looked at watch. I felt bad. It was 10 in the night and we generally sleep by this time.

I cursed myself and thought why I did not go out immediately after reaching home or at least after finishing dinner.

Once we were on the bed, I thought of asking her if she felt bad for not going out. But thoughts came into my mind if I should ask her or not.

Finally I decided to ask her so that it does not remain buried in my heart.

“Did you feel bad for not going out”?

Wife replied calmly “You were tired when you came from office so I thought of not disturbing you”.

I felt relieved. I asked why she switched on TV when she knew that we had to go out.

She again said calmly “You have interest in reading that you generally cannot do on other days as you come late in the night so I did not feel like disturbing you”.

I was feeling bad inside.  I was expecting some harsh words from her.

Infact I wasted this precious time in all other things except the one of going out.

We love one another very much and cater to very minute needs of one another. We also say I Love You Darling.

But sometimes it becomes necessary to express it which can be in any form.

Going out was one of them. This is what I thought. I cannot say about anyone else.

One should spend some time with family whenever you get time. Do not indulge in things that can be done without one another.I had wasted my precious time and was feeling bad for myself and my wife.

I decided that next time whenever I got this opportunity we will go out for a walk and then will continue with our daily routine. Otherwise same will happen in future.

 

 

 

Flying Cars

No traffic jams. Imagine travelling in space to reach office. No traffic lights, no jams.

Yes this is possible with flying cars that have become craze.

Just sit in the flying car, start engine and it will take off just like plane. Reach office in 10 minutes, land car on the road, stop engine and park it.

People imagine flying cars with full automation where it can do whatever human mind thinks.

People are also imagining vertical take off and land (VTOL) of car just like planes and fighters that will be VTOL functional in the near future.

Flying cars will save time and fuel. But it may require licensed pilot to fly a car since this forms part of aviation. If control is given to anyone irrespective of the skills required, it may result in accidents and will not be a safe transport.

Let’s hope for the best.

 

Want to tune in to the world’s radio stations

A new online application has come that broadcasts radio stations from all countries in the world.

I am sure you will love this application.

You can listen from Merlin in UK, Samba in the Caribbean Islands, Michael Jackson in Canada, Arabic tunes in Dubai to anything from any of the county on this Planet.

It is a communication between humans from across the borders.

Radio.Garden is an interactive application that presents different locations across globe in tiny green dots that can be tuned into at the click of a button. Some of the stations may presently be not tuned due to disturbance in the airwaves but will be available in the near future.

The interactive was created by Amsterdam-based design companies Studio Puckey and Moniker, which were approached by the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision to develop an installation for a research project about radio called Transnational Radio Encounters, which focuses on radio that crosses linguistic and geographical barriers.

Currently there are 8000 stations and new stations are being added every day. Any company wishing to feature its station is invited to get in touch and get their station registered.

VTOL-Future planes

Have you heard Vertical Take Off and Landing (VTOL) technology?

This is the future of planes, helicopters and fighter jets that can land and take off vertically. This is just like standing and sitting on a fixed place.

This is especially useful where runways are not very long or where airports and helipads are built in hilly areas like Hong Kong, Bhutan and few other countries. There is very little space in these areas and planes have to hover in the sky for a long time before final take off.

Few planes who successfully tested VTOL include Lockheed Martin F-35B, Elytron 2S and few flights by NASA.

Few benefits include:

  • Can take off and land vertically, as a helicopter would, without any support equipment such as a catapult launch or capture nets
  • High aspect ratio wings result in 24 hour endurance which is unmatched in the industry
  • Longer flights than a helicopter and can land in an either horizontal or vertical flight configuration

This technology has many potential applications that include the following:

Military applications such as intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance

Commercial applications where extended mission UAV capabilities are beneficial, including law enforcement, firefighting, crop surveys, pipeline surveys, or oil field management

People with extremely deep pockets will also use this instead of cars and this may become reality somewhere around Year 2030.

Elon Musk, pioneer in technology (that includes Hyperloop) has plans of inventing VTOL electric planes that will use electricity instead of fuel.

 

Yogi Adityanath- New Face of Uttar Pradesh

Yogi Adityanath, the new Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh is the new ambassador of Hindu mass.

He was born on 5th Jun 1972 as Ajay Singh Bisht into Garhwali Rajput family. At the age of 21 he renounced his family and became a disciple of Mahant Avaidyanath. He is from a Hindu Priest family and he became priest after his father died.

A firebrand among people within days of becoming UP CM, people are following him more than Prime Minister Mr. Narendra Modi.

He went to Hazratganj Police Station in Lucknow today and asked all policemen to follow strict time schedule from top to bottom officials in hierarchy.

He himself cleaned police station today and has asked officials to get all police stations clean at least once a week.

No major candidate was available in UP from BJP side. Campaigning was done in the name of Mr. Modi who then had to choose suitable candidate so that rivalry does not arise in the state. It was also not possible for Mr. Modi to resign from Prime Ministership and become head of the state.

Finally Yogi Adityanath was selected as chief minister as he was both popular and senior.

If Yogi maintains this pace he would surpass Mr. Modi and may become next Prime Minister of India.

Beer on Mars

Want to enjoy beer on Mars. Yes, it will be possible soon as Budweiser, leading brewery company in USA has chalked out plan to grow and consume beer on Mars, a planet which is further away from Sun as compared to Earth.

The beer company is bubbling over with hopes to make a microgravity brew that can be consumed on the Red Planet.

However there are challenges in this. There is 100 times less gravitational force on Mars as compared to Earth making it difficult to sip liquid on Mars. The bubbles in carbonated drink will not rise and hence soap like foam will form in the mouth.

In microgravity atmosphere a person is not able to taste due to swollen tongue and hence will not be able to distinguish between varieties of liquids.

Mars has more saline water which is similar to Ocean water on Earth and this will make taste bitter.

Temperature on Mars fluctuates from 21 degrees Celsius in day to -71 degrees Celsius at night in summers but bear is ideally kept at 4 degrees Celsius.

Hope for the best.
