Demon Haunted World

April 03, 2006

Was reading Carl Sagan's "Demon Haunted World" and was chuckling over all the fellows who ardently believe in UFOs. It seemed to be pretty powerful reading till they started showing Alien Vs Predator on STAR movies. Out went Sagan and Bala spent the next two hours trying to figure out whether the xenomorph (aka alien) had eyes or not. Some scientific spirit..

The previous post on Madurai seems to have attracted two commentors quite angry at me. Well i dont mind taking potshots, but before you start swinging at me, please remember while you are are typing your posts from the comforts of _____ (fill in your city name, typically outside India), i am the one who has to deal with the spitters in 77B while going home.

But got to admit this - Madurai has the best public transportation system amongst the cities i have lived in (coimbatore, chennai, Newyork). I could spend hours extolling the virtues of multiple bus stands, high frequency of connecting buses, ring roads, circular bus routes, mini buses on less frequent routes, regular night services, differential pricing and so on. But it will take an entire post altogether - maybe will write it for calling my fellow madurai karans as kattans
