Well, for want of a better title I chose this !
Gajabhuja in Sanskrit means the trunk of an elephant !

Even if you have to pay that tab bit extra, Jet Airways rocks and rocks big time. They have introduced e-check in, where you can check-in through the electronic kiosks. I know. I know. The cynical misfits among you would cry hoarse that it exists in many places in the world. Heck, even I have used it in many places in the world. But, come on, it is a start and needs to be appreciated.
But, what takes the cake is that their in-flight entertainment system uses Linux ;-). That _is_ something. When the system starts up, you are greeted with the familiar sight of the Penguin and the scrolling of boot up messages.
They say that when you meet with an accident, the brain makes sure that it erases that portion from your memory so as to not trouble you with that incident again and again.
When that is the case, how can you analyze what happened and make sure you do not make that mistake that lead to the accident once again ? Is that conditioning built-in such that you do not make that mistake ?
No where else is communication as important as a hair cutting salon. You tell the man short on the sides and medium on the top and he does short on the sides and extremely short on the top, making it look as if a lawn mover went over your hair.
Not that it matters too much, just that you feel more air coursing through your head when you wear your helmet and drive !
I do not quite seem to understand the logic/philosophy/stupidity of wearing the identity card in a railway station. Of course, needless to say, it is only the brain dead software coolies who will go to such absurd lengths. I do not think we need to know that you work in HCL or Utopia systems or Texas Instruments.
