Of those letters un-posted,

Red cheeked, Mr. God resigns.
--------------------------------------------------------
You don't know it, if you can't explain it.
Or so they say...
I wonder...
If they have grossly underestimated the beast named communication. If they are blind to the fact that, like all else, not everyone is blessed with it.
----------------------------------------------------------
We all are busy being strong,
Forgetting to pause, at few things.
Refusing to acknowledge, the rest.
Just wish them away, can we really?
-----------------------------------------------------------
Watching a Discovery special on the Delhi Metro and the man who has 'done it', E.Sridharan...
couldn't help but remember a debate on CNBC that touched up on 'efficient public transport' and the increasingly exponential automobile additions to crumbling Indian roads and the consequent environmental and infrastructural nightmares.
A panel member observed that, in Europe for example, the very best of public transportation system hasn't necessarily meant that less number of cars are bought every year.
There is general agreement that we can't really stop people from aspiring to buy a car, neither from making them, nor from buying them.
The only thing we could do, they observed, is to tell people...
"Buy your car mate, but just keep it a home".
However it might sound, you can't deny... it makes sense.
Given present day state of traffic and pollution, I trust everybody would welcome an efficient and affordable public transport. I hope to afford a hybrid one day but till then, am offering a silent prayer for the metro to come by.
That too shall take time... so its the Hyderabad-autowala zindabad for now.

------------------------------------------------------
some of the best lines ever...

Hum Labon Se Keh Na Paye Unse Haal-E-Dil Kabhi
Aur Voh Samjhe Nahin Yeh Khamoshi Kya Cheez Hai

-Movie:Sarfarosh
Singer:Jagjit Singh
Lyrics:Nida Fazli

Of those letters un-posted,
