City auto drivers to get lessons in spoken English
This is to showcase Chennai as as tourist-friendly city.
Do they fail to realise what is making autos non-user friendly. First we gotto give them lessons on proper usage of the meter and how to be fair in charging the customers. Even I have been a victim more than once, I was charged Rs.120 for a travel to Teacher’s colony in Kolathur (thts less than 7 kms from Perambur). The biggest kodumai is that, they are not even ashamed to demand such illegal (yes, its illegal) prices.
But another news seem to suggest that 43,000 cases have been booked against autos in last 3 months! Really!?!??
Smoking by mother is the biggest baby killer
Maternal smoking has replaced sleeping on stomach as the biggest factor for sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS).
This may not be that applicable to Indian moms.. but there shud be an awareness about passive smoking. Smoking alone doesn’t kill, even being in the company of a smoker, kills. So all moms out there, stay away from ur ‘smoking’ hubbies.
I just wanna abolish the cigarattes from this world once n for all. Jus like that .. with the press of a ‘Shift+Del’ 😦

Eating choc helps improving maths skills
Now some interesting news. People were found to be doing calculations more quickly and more accurately after they had been given a chocolate drink.
It would have been better had I known this during my school/college days. But, I needn’t worry, as a wiproite we never run out of tests and assessments.
But that said, i wonder that if all these were true.. I should ‘ve already been a mini Ramanujam 😀
Genetic superkid, 3, moves furniture
This is a superboy who can move furniture at the age of 3.
No he isn’t been bitten by a genetically modified spider. This Michigan kid likely has a condition called myostatin-realted muscle hypertrophy, which means his body has very little fat and enlarged muscle fibres.
So, do we have a real-super hero after all these years!? 🙂
Made in India, to be sold in South Africa
IPL in SA could take the game to a new level. When SA was playing Aus in the T20 game recently, there were a lot of Indian flags flying around and messages welcoming IPL home. Its quite evident that SA is getting ready to welcome this unique Indian innovation to their shore.
Ya.. who would say NO to the Big Money Making Machine. The only few disappointed would be those fans who would have loved to watch these matches live in their home towns. But, its always better that its being played somewhere than not being played at all.
