03:11 PM, Capturing a moment of Chennai

Chennai. Born 1639.

Ever wondered how many things have happened/changed in these 368 years of Chennai’s existence? If I were to give these changes a digit, then it would just about take me the closest value to infinity.

With a flick of a finger, Chennai has become a million things old. What if we could take one second out of this city’s life and capture, store and time capsule it? We can’t document everything that happened in that one second in Chennai, but we sure can have a good collection of events/scenes/stories that took place in that one second.

Calling all you people to take part in this ambitious project “03:11 PM”.

Grab a camera, sync. your watch and take a snap of whatever you see at 3:11 PM on 3rd November, 2007. It doesn’t matter what camera you use, it doesn’t matter if the scene is not aesthetic, all that matters is you take that ONE shot telling everyone else, that is what was happening in that part of Chennai at that particular instance.

Do also realize that more the number of people taking part in this project, the more successful it will become. Feel free to blog about it, spread the word to your friends and please refrain from spamming orkut (if possible).

What on earth would a +2 student do with a Tri-Cycle? Or am I missing something here?

Getting Zuned…

Here is a simple review of my latest and greatest gadget, the MICROSOFT ZUNE…!

A bridge too far

I got this by mail the other day. Found it really amusing. In fact, hilarious! Especially in the context of our current affairs of the country.

An interesting conversation
The Lord surveyed the Ram Setu and said “Hanuman, how diligently and strenuously you and your vanara sena had built this bridge several centuries back. It is remarkable that it has withstood the ravages of the climatic and geographical changes over centuries. It is indeed an amazing feat especially considering the fact that a bridge at Hyderabad built by Gammon using latest technology collapsed the other day even before they could stick the posters on its pillars.”

Hanuman with all humility spoke “Jai Sri Ram, it is all because of your grace. We just scribbled your name on the bricks and threw them in the sea and they held. No steel from TISCO or cement from Ambuja or ACC was ever used. But Lord, why rake up the old issue now.”
