An old legend says

Drunk water

A competition was organized between two groups-demons(asuras) and angels(devatas). The elbow of every member was stiffened with a stick and amrit(holy water) was put in the hands of everyone and asked to drink it.

Demons tried the whole day; but how could they drink it without bending their elbow in order to bring their palms near their mouth. So everyone raised the hand and spilled the amrit.

Angels just took one minute. They offered the water to their fellow mates and everybody became immortal.

So, my resolution is to give. So let’s live long:-)

Organisation in unplanned cities.

I have seen a small city. Yes the quality of life is more natural. Things of your convenience-ration, clothes and other household utilities are within walkable reach-say just 200 m. More special services and quite a lot of employer locations are just within 500m. So why need a vehicle just spending ten times in commuting for a trivial thing. Manual transport reduces pollution and old courtyard houses save a lot of energy keeping bills as low as $100/year. I have noticed that per capita living cost is just $500/yr in such cities. So what have we really achieved by metros is what I really wonder.
