John Nash died in car accident.

John Nash a mathematician who got Nobel Prize in Economics and inspired a Hollywood movie – “A Beautiful Mind” died last week in a car crash. I watched the movie in 2003 and was touched by his story. I am so disheartened to hear this news that I can’t tell. Most disappointing thing what I heard in news was that he and his wife were not wearing seat belts.

Zebra crossing is for humans.

Zebra crossing is for humans.

Zebra crossing is meant for pedestrians when the signal is green for pedestrians or in other words red for vehicles. However, it’s a very common scene in our country to see people not leaving zebra crossing for pedestrians. You will see a lot of vehicles parked over zebra crossing which makes it almost impossible for pedestrians to cross the road.

There a straight line behind every zebra crossing indicating the limit for vehicles. Please stop your vehicles behind the line so that it’s easier for pedestrians to cross the road. Remember, we all were pedestrians at some stage. Some of us are pedestrians even now. Respect pedestrians.

No tissue paper to wipe away your own tears

Standard
Tissue papers used in less than 8 hours by less than 80 people.

Tissue papers used in less than 8 hours by less than 50 people.

8 hours, 50 people, 5 sessions i.e. 5 breaks. Imagine, if everyone uses on an average 1 – 2 tissue papers per break, total number of tissue papers used would be 250 – 500. Does it look like 500? Think again.

Please use tissue papers wisely. Save environment. Otherwise in future there wouldn’t be any tissue paper to wipe away your own tears.

Pipeline transport or transport of pipes

Standard

pipes

There is something called Pipeline transport that is the transportation of goods through pipes. Liquids, gases and any chemically stable substance can be sent through a pipeline. What term will you give to transportation of pipes?

Needless to say that carrying pipes or any other object beyond any vehicle’s body frame is illegal and unsafe as explained earlier (1, 2). Please make sure that any vehicle following such vehicle should be very careful and should make sure that there is an extra distance between the two vehicles so that there is enough stopping sight distance.
