Yet another display of Sycophancy by Congress!

President in her address to parliament on 22nd Feb 2010, has announced a new scheme of rural LPG distribution namely "Rajiv Gandhi Gramin LPG Vitarak Yojana". Yet another scheme under the banner of "Nehru family" (read Nehru, Indira Gandhi, and Rajiv Gandhi)! Yet another display of Sycophancy by Congress government!

Electronics City Elevated Expressway

As my office base re-shifted to Electronics City, I got the chance to use newly constructed elevated expressway which was opened for public recently. I've driven between silk board and e-city for more than 1 year and I've seen the pain. It was a horrible 10km drive with traffic jam, loads of dust because of express way construction, mindless driving by almost all types of vehicles, senseless honking and the list goes on. So, it was obvious that every motorist like me was desperately waiting for this express way (Yeah, am not sure if I'm going to use it once toll fee is introduced!).

With all those excitement and joy, I drove my vehicle on express way and wow, it was a non-stop, consistent at 70KMPH drive over a stretch of approx. 9.5kms! I was in E-city in 10mins from silk board (I used to take 35mins to more than 1 hour before). I really enjoyed the drive.

Not sure how many people are going to use this when toll fee is introduced. Again, it depends on how much we have to pay for one way. A word of caution though, ensure you have enough fuel in your vehicle before you hit the express way. Otherwise, you have to tow your vehicle to either side of 9.5KM stretch! By the way, my colleague has already experienced it!
