DAY OUT IN TOKYO

Barcelona team has arrived in Tokyo today for FIFA Clubs World Cup. They will directly play in the semifinal on 15th December.  check out the news: http://www.fcbarcelona.com/football/first-team/detail/article/schedule-for-fifa-clubs-world-cup-in-japan
Can't miss to see Messi &  Barcelona. It's a lifetime opportunity. So, I'm taking a holiday on Thursday to see the match.
Hmm. There is the other news for which I'm writing. Yesterday I attended Tokyo Motor show. This was the first time I've been in Tokyo. There was no time to visit the city except the motor show due to lack of time. Some of us has decided to go to Tokyo and spend few days from 30th dec  for new year celebration. The New Year resolution will be to discover world’s most populated urban metropolitan.


As expected, this year Japanese motor show did not have the same extravagance like previous years. This was mainly because of the gruesome tsunami that has brought down the business of Toyota and Honda a lot. The European Giants did showcase their muscle or technology as they again tried to prove that they some steps ahead than the rest as per technology is concerned.
2012 January New Delhi auto expo will be a bigger event because more number of companies will participate and more numbers of cars will be displayed.  You guys should visit that. I made the following two videos. First one is BMW electric car concept which I thought the best display in this event. Second video was taken mostly from our bus to catch some glimpse of world largest urbanized area 'Tokyo Metropolitan'.

Konnichiwa Chiru..get an autograph from Messi for TWM!

Mannu - Why Japan?
I have a friend from CSC who's doing his Phd there and has been asking me for the last 2 years to come there. Secondly, unlike for the US, the return ticket to Japan is fairly inexpensive, so I thought that let's start my first vacation abroad with Japan only. However, nothing is confirmed yet and I have Russia also on the cards as I have had Russian neighbors. So it's either gonna be Russia or Japan or who knows maybe nothing :-D

This a distress call to all TWM folks. This has been the longest duration of inactivity for TWM. So is it that we are all too busy or have all of us hit the writer's block. Let's break the spell of inactivity....HOW?? WHAT SHOULD I WRITE ABOUT?? I have an incomplete draft, shall I post that? May be I will do a recap of the past few days..No mood to write paragraphs.. Connect the dots yourself.. * Kaminey - Movie was good, the ending could have been better..The bong mafia coming with a long gun to the fight scene was really comic..Fahid Kapoor ki acting mast thi..waifey aap log ye movie dekhey kya?? * Books - Finally I read the book Love Story by Erich Segal..Hmmm the story is good but the effect of the classic book has not yet got into me..Meanwhile I am also reading 'The Great Indian Novel' by Shashi Tharoor..I will surely recommend this book..Tharoor has splendidly blended the tales from Mahabharata into the modern Indian history.. *Movies - I watched 'Littl

When I escaped death !!!

12th June'13, 10.30 pm : I was driving back from a dinner party at dizzying speeds of around 80 KMPH inside a city. Then in my  psychedelic drive (yes I get high without alcohol), I saw a signal square few 100 meters ahead. I decreased the speed ( Signals are switched off after 10 pm in Nagpur so exercised caution ) to 60 KMPH (I am an engineer and I like my exact figures) but my car jumped off a speed breaker which I could not spot in the city darkness . I thought I controlled my car by the time I reached the signal square but  baaaaangggg !!! Few seconds later - I realized I was still alive!! saved by the airbag. Take a note everybody. The same day during daytime around 4.30 pm, I was feeling restless with a feeling of fear & anxiety inside me. A friend inquired and I replied back "I can feel something bad is going to happen with me today". That night I was hit by a speeding car straight (at 90 degrees) on the driver's door. Upon impact
