i have a solution for the petrol hike!. i feel, the amount of fuel we waste in stupid traffic can be minimized if we follow some kind of discipline while driving. and the infrastructure on popular roads, where there is high volume of traffic must be outstanding, then i think we can tolerate the current fuel price hikes..

Indian Railways

A few stats about Indian Railways will blow out any ones' minds..Like the volume of passengers it carries and the low fare and number of employees in the organisations..
However, There are few things IR is taking people for granted.Simply put it is a pain to travel in IR.
If i have to travel a simple 700 Kms, I need to book tickets in 1 Month advance and even then Im not sure of a confirmed berth
If i have to travel to place like patna from hyderabad,I need to book at least 3 months in advance.
How ridiculous it is..
The cleanliness of stations,compartnments sucks.
And the funda of RAC!.I think no one on a RAC berth ever got a confirmed berth after boarding the train!.How silly, that no one ever cancels their journey after booking tickets!!..
I feel it is high time to ramp up the rail commutation facilities in India. Like identifying heavy volume routes and introduce VERY HIGH SPEED trains..
Japan war ravaged country got HIGH SPEED trains withing <20 years after the war.China has them!.
I feel this change has to happen at the massive pace.

"What can you say?How stupid can I get?.I jumped off a perfectly good plane"!..
I asked the person with whom i was doing the tandem jump?.Who is going to jump first?. He said your friends will jump first. So I was superficially relaxed as I'll see how my friends do it , so that i can be more comfortable. In my mind, I was dead nervous...
Suddenly Evil,said move forward put your arms across your chest and jump. I thought. oh shit. I've to jump first!!!!..For the first time I felt indeed the phrase "heart sinking feeling" is indeed correct.. And I jumped :-) Jumped of a plane!! from 18000 Feet.
The moment i jumped, gravity. 9.8m/s2 was in action!.. I picked up a speed of almost 200 kmph. with a chilly wind gushing across my face. I couldn't feel anything but excitement. All the fue ndas i learnt in school, "Terminal velocity" was the speed at which i was falling down!!
I was FLYING!! :-)..
