Women. They are a complete mystery - Stephen Hawking

It took 70 long years for Hawking's to understand that "Women. They are a complete mystery." In an interview with New ScientistStephen Hawking was asked what he thought about most during the day. In a classic, age-old form, he replied, “Women . When New Scientist magazine asked "Brief History of Time" author Stephen Hawking what he thinks about most, the Cambridge University professor renowned for unravelling some of the most complex questions in modern physics answered: "Women. They are a complete mystery."

The wheelchair-bound Hawking, who only recently retired from a post once held by Isaac Newton, talked to the magazine in the run-up to celebrations for his 70th birthday about his biggest scientific blunder and his hopes for modern science.

Hawking is due to celebrate his 70th birthday on Sunday with a public symposium entitled "The State of the Universe" at the University of Cambridge's Centre for Theoretical Cosmology.

Hawking heads a list of speakers including British Astronomer Royal Martin Rees, Nobel Prize-winning physicist Saul Perlmutter and Kip Thorne, one of the world's leading theoretical physicists.

The interview was in preparation for Hawking’s upcoming 70th birthday, for which the Centre for Theoretical Cosmology, University of Cambridge, is holding a symposium dubbed “The State of the Universe,” on January 8. Among being mystified by women, but not mystified by things we actually don’t understand, like black holes and time, Hawking answered a few more questions, almost equally as entertaining as the aforementioned one.

 When asked what he felt his biggest blunder was, he replied that thinking that information was destroyed in black holes was his biggest blunder — at least his biggest scientific blunder — and was proved wrong back in 1997. So, yes, one of the most brilliant minds alive today understands time and space and black holes leaking information back into the universe, but not women.

E. Sreedharan,the man behind the billion dollar construction in India

Elattuvalapil Sreedharan who hails from Karukaputhoor in Palakkad district of Kerala, the man behind most of the major construction in India. E. Sreedharan was born in a family of Palakkad district, Kerala. His family hails from Karukaputhoor in Palakkad district of Kerala. After attending Basel Evangelical Mission Higher Secondary School there he studied at the Victoria College in Palghat and then graduated as an engineer from the Government Engineering College, Kakinada. For a short tenure, he worked as a lecturer in Civil engineering at the Government Polytechnic, Kozhikode and an year at the Bombay Port Trust as an apprentice.

Later he joined the Indian Railways in its Service of Engineers. His first assignment was in the Southern Railway as a Probationary Assistant Engineer in December 1954.

In 1963, a cyclone washed away parts of Pamban Bridge that connected Rameshwaram to mainland Tamil Nadu. The Railways set a target of six months for the bridge to be repaired while Sreedharan's boss, under whose jurisdiction the bridge came, reduced it to three months. Sreedharan was put in-charge of the execution and he restored the bridge in just 46 days.  The Railway minister's Award was given to him in recognition of this achievement..

In 1970, as the deputy chief engineer, he was put in charge for implementation, planning and design of Calcutta metro, the first ever metro in India. Cochin Shipyard launched Rani Padmini, the first ship it built, when he was its Chairman and Managing Director (CMD). He retired from Indian Railways as Member Engineering in 1990. Sreedharan also has an advisory board slot at a new Foundation for the Restoration of National Values. Business tycoon Ratan Tata and a former chief justice of India are serving, too. The foundation aims to "bring in good values in all areas of national life, to cleanse corruption in high places," says Sreedharan.

Konkan Railway
Though he retired, the Government needed his services and he was appointed the CMD of Konkan Railway on contract in 1990. Under his stewardship, the company executed its mandate in seven years. The project was unique in many respects. It was the first major project in India to be undertaken on a BOT (Build-Operate-Transfer) basis; the organisation structure was different from that of a typical Indian Railway set-up; the project had 93 tunnels along a length of 82 km and involved tunneling through soft soil. The total project covered 760 km and had over 150 bridges. That a public sector project could be completed without significant cost and time overruns was considered an achievement by many.

Delhi Metro
He was made the managing director of Delhi Metro and by mid-2005, all the scheduled sections were completed by their target date or before and within their respective budgets. Sreedharan was given the sobriquet of Metro Man by the media. In 2005, he ws awarded the Chevalier de la Légion d'honneur (Knight of the Legion of Honour) by the government of France. He had announced that he would retire by the end of 2005, but his tenure has been extended by another three years to oversee the completion of the second phase of Delhi Metro. In July 2009, Sreedharan resigned as the managing director DMRC, taking moral responsibility for the collapse of an under-construction bridge (at Zamrudpur near Amar Colony) that killed five people. However, Delhi's Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit rejected Sreedharan's resignation, and he withdrew it a day later. Sreedharan stated after his withdrawal that he will ultimately be quitting from his position but only after the completion of the Phase II of the Delhi Metro Project.

Bajaj's new low cost car RE 60,- 40 km per litre promises 40 km per litre

At last , the cheapest of the cheapest car came, with a  promise of 40 km per litre.Even I was surprised, but when I saw and read the specification , I dont know what to say, I just look my Pulzar 220 CC and said...Buddy you are great, because this new car has 200 CC engine. The company claims that the car would have a mileage of close to 40 km per litre.The car will be launched in 2012. However, the car might be exported first before it is available here in India.The engine is a new water cooled DTSi (Digital Twin Spark Ignition) 4 valve and would give a maximum speed of 70km per hour. The car has a seating capacity of four people. I went 120 KM/hr with my Pulzar :).
Rajiv Bajaj, MD at Bajaj Auto, made the announcement and said that the engine for the car is state-of-the-art and environment friendly. It is frugally engineered, he added. . I should ask "How dare he said that" for a 200cc .RE 60 will be produced at three-wheeler plant in Aurangabad, Bajaj Auto has not disclosed the pricing. Thank god :) Do you know what Bajaj honcho said . "We are Apple kind of company. We believe in making niche products; we are an 'anti car' company."  If Steve Jobs where there, he should have sue the company
