Welcome to the real world Road Rash – Welcome to Infopark Road

Would you like to play road rash in real life?

Then welcome to Cochin. All you need to do is to have a ride through the Infopark road during the office hours. I am not exaggerating, just have a look at the video taken infront of Carnival Infopark, Kakkanad – The IT Hub of Cochin.

The section infront of Carnival infopark is the worst segment in this road. Its chaotic – you have a four lane road infront of you with vehicles going in all directions along with pedestrians crossing carelessly. A perfect example of unplanned roads in the city. The junction infront of Infopark Main gate and Smart City main gate is equally chaotic. But the real winner in this race to be the best chaotic junction is the one near Vyaparabhavan junction – right at the beginning of Infopark road.

SBI should Follow IRCTC to Go Green

In a major decision to adopt the environmental friendly path IRCTC – Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation Ltd no longer requires passengers to take printouts of Tickets booked online. It is estimated that this small step will save 3 lakh A4 Paper a day. Though IRCTC has to improve a lot in terms of service quality, we should appreciate this decision to implement paperless ticketing.

Now State Bank of India should follow IRCTC in adopting the environmental friendly approach with their ATM’s. Almost all other bank ATM’s ask the customer whether they need a printed advice of the last transaction. State Bank ATM’s dont ask users whether they need the printed advice and prints the transaction details after every transaction.

FDI In Retail – Should we fear WalMart and Tesco ?

The Central Government decision to allow 51% Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) in multibrand retailing is facing fierce resistance in the country.Finance Minister Pranab Mukherjie and Prime Minister Sri Manmohan Singh claims this decision as something very necessary and inevitable. This is indeed a revoluionary decision that can change the retailing landscape in India.Resistance to this much awaited decision is huge and it comes from opposition parties like BJP, CPI, CPM etc. Even UPA coalition partners like Trinamul Congress and Congress leaders like Ramesh Chennithala, Jayaram Ramesh are opposing this decision.With Mamta Banerjie threatening the government and the stiff resistance from opposition Government has put the decision on hold.

Mullaperiyar Issue, Muammar Gaddafi & Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam

The buzz behind ‘Mullaperiyar‘ is nothing new in Kerala. Its an annual issue in kerala for the last few decades with media and politicians start discussing about the potential threat to four districts as soon as the water level reaches the 136 mark. Everyone will forget the threat once a new issue is up and running. Same is the case with the self financing college issue which will be the hot topic only during the admission season. 
The Mullaperiyar issue with Kerala playing the card of ‘threat to lives of 30 million’ and Tamil Nadu playing the ‘Water for Life’ card become a headache to the central government also. Kerala is assuring water to Tamil Nadu and demanding decommision of the old dam and construction of a new one in its place.

When we have wooden Bishop’s with Golden Crosses !!!!

Once we had “Golden Bishop’s with wooden crosses”. But now we have “wooden bishops with golden crosses, travelling in luxury car and doing the just opposite of what Jesus preached”. The recent developments in Kolenchery after the court order in favor of Orthodox faction of Malankara church proves the above wordings. 

This is what happens when church become a source for amazing wealth – hunger strikes, protest rallies, destruction of public properties.

The church authorities should read bible, atleast Mathew chapter 21 – “My house will be called a house of prayer,’ but you are making it a ‘den of robbers.”

Always Keep Smiling

Dell Direct to home customer Service is Awesome

I was back home after the tiring first Semester exams and was busy planning my activities for the precious 3 days of Sem Break. We scheduled a trip to Trivandrum to attend the 15th International film festival of Kerala and to catchup with my friends in the lovely city of Trivandrum.

All my plans got ruined with my laptop showing some problems on Friday evening. I was working with my Dell Inspiron 14R and suddenly it got switched OFF. It was not booting up from then. I thought the battery is down and tried connecting the adapter but when i connect the adapter pin to the laptop, the power indicator on the adapter turns OFF.
