China....

Its quiet some time since i updated my blog.... well one main reason was all the blogs are blocked in china and i was on a business visit to china.... No doubt china is far ahead of india in terms of economy and growth however this time i could get a feel of a what is lacking in china.... the main thing we enjoy the freedom of speech is not there in china... no individual person is allowed to speak against the government.... well probably this might work well under certain conditions also it might be good if there is no corruption... otherwise probably this system will be a mess... also i dont think the system of communalism will work in a place of more intellectuals with individual thoughts and who love and respect each others freedom... hence forth this system might never work in india... however the amount of progress they have achieved in recent times is simply amazing there are quite a lot for us indians to learn from our hard working neighbours....









Its not that we are not hardworking but there is a lot of "chalta hai" attitude in our country which we need to change.... probably this is one important factor which we need to focus atleast for the next generation.... any way right now this is not the thing i wanted to pin down...











well 15 days in china was a great experience was overloaded with work... was very busy however this time i had planned better and had taken some MTR ready food for survival as a vegeterian.... also this time i could figure out atleast some 5-6 indian reustarants in shangai.... the best thing was the amazing food at the punjabi dhaba with the live, india vs australia final cricket match that was been displayed on a big screen with lots of indians watching in an unknown country and india managing to win the thrilling match.....









The best of the experiences were staying in one the worlds tallest and shangai's tallest hotel ..... my room was in the 82nd flood and one side of which was complete glass.... well tats a spell bound experience every night i used to sit in front of the glass and used to have a look at the world outside.... everything looks very tiny :-) the night lights used to make you loose urself .... one thing i dreamed from this height was an open window to feel the breeze at this height and the 2nd thing was to do a bungi jump from this height.... wow what an experience it would have been :-)



The last thing which fasinated me was travelling in one of the world's fastest train :-) 430kmph... maglev trains..... a distance of 50-60kms is covered in just 5-7min... well the speedo meter just raises from 0-430 and starts desending back.... i was imagining the same b/w bangalore and tumkur ;-) it would just take around 5 min from bangalore to tumkur and imagine anywere within karnataka would be with in 1hr reach :-) wow.... it thrills man..... this would be the future of furthur contrasting the world :-)

Wow! Benglur to Tumkur in just 5 mins? That would be amazing :-)
These days it takes a whole 3 hours in Kempu bassu to reach Tumkuru from Bengluru.
