A Young Giant Awakes – 60 Years of Independence – TIME

It’s (the link above) a 7 page story in the TIME magazine’s Europe and Asia issues on how India is reclaiming it’s rightful (and historic) place as one of the hubs of civilization.

What’s interesting is how Rajiv Gandhi’s quote of Mera Bharat Mahaan changed to Mera Bharat Pareshaan and now to Mera Bharat Jawaan!

It is good reading. Makes me happy! And it is so true, so what if real estate prices are going through the roof and there is no place to park or drive… these are all signs of everyone doing well. Like everything else, the infrastructure will also come. Look at my Gurgaon post below 😉

Formula 1 : News ALONSO – F1-Live.com

Though it does very little to make up for the Ferrari debacle at Hungary yesterday, this article made me go MHUWAHAHAHAHA…. it’s actually a pity that these two are so competitive that it is creating bad blood. McLaren is definitely on top of their game and have been having quite a good time this year. For Ferrari, it seems like time is gone and we will just have to wait another few months to get our hopes up again.

So much so, that I’m not even that excited to see the race today. Some of the times you hope that your team will fight back and it will be worth watching the race, but more often than not… a bad position only gets worse during the race. Let’s see how it unfolds. On top of all this, my driving classes will make sure I miss the start of the race. 50% of the excitement of a race is packed into the start… not a good thing to have to miss 😦

If Ferrari are going to be so consistent in breaking down their cars… (uniform distribution between the drivers… uniform distribution through the race season) then it’s not going to be much of a fight for McLaren…. is it?

I almost forgot, the best news is that McLaren have “provisionally” been stripped of ANY constructor championship points coming from this race.
