First Human Being in recorded history to have been killed by a celestial body.
An Indian may be the first known human being to have been killed by a meteorite hit. Authorities said that a small celestial body struck a southern college campus, killing a bus driver and injuring three others in an incident initially reported as a bomb.

The falling, recently, of ten more Indian jawans to an avalanche at Siachen, reminds us, yet again, of the perilous conditions that they have to endure throughout the year, standing guard at the highest battlefield of the world in the mighty Himalayas.

#replug - reproducing here a #longRead on the perils of standing guard at Siachen. The original keeps moving places on the interwebs, and so placing here on my blog.

"If there was a place on earth that could represent hell, this would be it. Siachen. A stony dead freezing wasteland, blanketed with ice through eternity. The only sign of life being the glacier itself. Like some prehistoric monster, twisting and slithering sinuously. Pulverizing or sweeping away everything in its path.
Scimitar like winds swoops from the mountains surrounding the glacier, buffeting and crashing into the sheer cliffs. The unimaginable cold chills the very marrow of the bones, like millions of tiny needles.
Slicing through clothing, skin and gristle. And the icy chill, that benumbs the body and desensitizes the mind. Degenerating and finally sapping the very will to survive. It is a place where even the sun capitulates, and shines impotently."

There is an indication that these men were trying to get away from the group as they were entirely disenchanted.

From #MakeInIndia to #MadeInIndia.

"Being the first of its kind export, India creates history in the manufacturing sector. As a part of the deal, in the coming 2 and a half year 450 such commuter cars with bogies will be exported to Australia. The project costing a total of 2.7 billion USD for the Canadian firm, Bombardier Transportation will be executed in their Vadodara facility."
Another push in Make in India campaign as the government informed that maiden consignment of six metro coaches made in Bombardier facility in Savli, Vadodara were shipped to Australian government from Mumbai port.

What's with #Mamata and her knack of siding with rapists in the name of vote bank? She called the #ParkStreet victim a 'woman of questionable character'. And then this. Such irony her name is 'mamata'.

"Faced with a situation Bengal had never seen before, Mamata lost her cool and described the demonstrators - most of whom were homemakers - as Maoists."
A sessions court today found six accused guilty of either gang-raping or gang-raping and murdering a college girl in Kamduni in 2013.

Norms milord? Appeasement and getting votes back isn't ground enough?

“Elections are due in the State and what is happening? Hundreds of crores are being disbursed through welfare schemes without basic norms in place to identify the needy. How do you choose who needs the most from among the lakhs of poor in Assam?”

Two little mice fell in a bucket of cream. The first mouse quickly gave up and drowned. The second mouse, wouldn't quit. He struggled so hard that eventually he churned that cream into butter and crawled out." - Catch Me If You Can

I see in the 2nd mouse my own struggle to stay afloat...As of this moment, I am the wannabe 2nd mouse.

I go there weekly to get my bulk purchases done, and for the gas. Costco as a whole is a great place for buying stuff and for other services (try their car rentals). But, this store has opportunity for improvement. 1. There are a few store employees that could do better in terms of their interaction with customers. 2. They keep moving the stuff around. So, there are chances you may not find something you are looking for at the same place where you picked it from the last time. 3. Some stuff that you like just disappears on you - may be they decided not to bring those in any more, may be they are out of stock.

I usually order take-outs from here. Found the food to be perfect every time. Love their dosas. Quick preparation. They seem to have buffet and tiffin options too, for those who are interested.

The sandwich Barista couldn't prepare a proper lettucewich. Plus I observed there was general disdain towards the customer. I wouldn't go again.

Weekend hours are the big plus for this location. Haven't seen that in any other USPS I've been to, in different cities. Also, some of the employees are good with their service. Tony would be one of them.
