Flowers & its fragrances

The Kamaraj (Koyambedu) Flower market was in its full life, throttle in the mornings, the new arrivals sorted, the wholesalers arranging for the retailers. The business was brisk as it was in the festive season and flowers are the essential part in announcing the festivity ……

Some flowers for your eyes ….

RamaswamyN & His Persona

As if i’ve taken the Aura Test or someone personally did my Persona Test, Nothing like it.

I did take the MIT’s Persona Test and found how the cyberspace finds myself or my persona … was surprised on certain aspects or its interpretations …

See the result below ……

Persona RamaswamyN

What do you say? …..

Aam Admi

Check this menu ….. and especially the pricing ….

Vegetarian thali: Rs 12.50

Sada dosa: Rs 2.50

Masala dosa: Rs 4

Dal (assorted): Rs 1.50

Soup with one slice: Rs 5.50

take a guess where is this at?
it’s a menu card and pricing valid even now ….

It’s the parliament’s canteen and this is the cost for our MP’s …..
On one side their salaries have been increasing, on the other hand subsidy for such acts.

Hmmm ….

Down, But not out …..

Not me …. but my Internet connection at Home.

Had Hathway Cable Internet from Nov’06 onwards and suddenly last 22nd the connection was severed and was informed (when called) that the service will resume after 10 days, when called again they informed the service will resume in a few months (yes you heard it right!!) because of some political issue. I was asked to surrender the MODEM and the balance payment due to me will be sent post that.

I guess the service happens (at your comfort / home) by most of these service related companies only when you start a relationship with them, never pleasant when you stop the relationship with the service provider. (In this instance, at their choice).

Hmmm … now applied for a BSNL Broadband … lets see how the Government run agency behaves …..

Destroyer of Enemies

or in other words the meaning of ARIHANT.

At the stroke of noon on Sunday, India demonstrated its capability to indigenously build and operate a nuclear-powered submarine with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh launching INS Arihant for sea trials here. Tugged gently from its dry-dock base, the 110-metre-long, 11-metre wide vessel can displace 6,000 tonnes of water. Its journey towards the sea is the first step before eventual induction into the Navy that Dr. Singh said marked “years of hard work, dedication and perseverance.”


Though the project conceived by Late Ms Indira Gandhi in 70’s and actually started in Mid-80’s, with USSR, later had setback due to disintegration of the USSR. L&T played a significant role in this “Much denied existing” project for the Indian Navy.
