India the greatest nation on Earth

January 26, 2011 is the day India celebrates its 61st anniversary of being a sovereign Republic. This was the same day several decades back our great nation became a modern democracy and inaugurated the constitution. Today as the billion plus people in India celebrate this momentous occasion, there are millions others across the world who celebrate too.

What happens when cars die…

Heap of Car Bodies

Heap of Car Bodies

The above picture is not that of an accident but deliberately crushed cars that have outlived their utility or died on the road or had been in accidents. Owners of the cars probably got money from insurance companies and parts that could be salvaged have been taken, now it is only plastic and some metal that nobody wants. So these dead bodies wait in the junkyard till it is time to get melted.

Railroad Memories in America

Railroad Memorial at the Frisco City Hall

Sculpture to celebrate railroads of a bygone era in Frisco

One of the things that Americans have learned to do very well is the art of marketing and packaging. Everything is packaged so well that it could be sold with the least effort. This applies to everything including the history. In the past there were railroads that connected the corners of this vast country but now there are very few railroads. People do tend to hold on to the memories and talk about the good days gone by. Here is one such example of how railroad has been glorified in the form of this sculptural installation at the city hall complex in Frisco, Texas.

I captured this image in front of the city hall in Frisco, TX. City governments here put in extra effort to ensure that the local festivals are celebrated and people are encouraged to participate in the cheer.

Sunrise captured while driving

Yesterday as I drove to college in the easterly direction, I was treated to this sight of a blazing sun rising to mark a new day. I simply could not resist the temptation to capture the scene on my mobile phone and upload the same here… Let me know what you all think…

Blazing red Sun rise - a treat to the eye
