RANDOM THOUGHTS (Mar, 2019)

The highlight of the month is a documentary prepared on IIT Kharagpur. This was aired on Doordarshan on the 16th of March. The film was sponsored by the IIT Kgp batch of 1970. Vinod Gupta (’67), pictured above right, has set up an endowment Chair Professorship named for Prof. A.S. Davis, an Associate Professor of Thermodynamics in the Department of Mechanical Engineering and the Warden of R.K. Hall. The endowment will serve as a top up salary to the Professor that is teaching and/or carrying out research in Thermodynamics or a related course. IITD Delhi has announced development of low cost AI based tools for instant detection of certain diseases.

Spring has set in and the air is full of fragrance of flowers, chirping of birds and humming of bees. Politically, election tensions and rhetoric is beginning to build up.

LONELY BEAUTY AT NOWHERE 

We were returning from Jullundhar to Delhi and decided to leave the highway and travel by side roads to see the country side. We passed by this house standing alone in unending fields of sunflowers. Then stopped, reversed to photograph it. Zoom in to see details. Share it with friends. Next time you travel, travel with leisure, quit the highways, follow the side roads. Enjoy before it is all lost to ‘development’ !

SPRING IS IN THE AIR

With spring in the air, Butterflies and Bees are busy collecting nectar. It is sad to see so few numbers of these wonderful creatures. With increasing pollution and warming, life forms are vanishing. Enjoy while they last.

SMILE A WHILE

A woman was being questioned in a court trial involving slander.

“Please repeat the slanderous statements you heard, exactly as you heard them,” instructed the lawyer.

The witness hesitated. “But they are unfit for any respectable person to hear,” she protested.

“Then,” said the attorney, “you just tell the judge.”

JUST TELL THE JUDGE !
