Finally the dream coming true.
Now the men/women in blue will witness the raw power of a yellow BULL. i.e. the Lamborghini..and the first model to be launched in India is Gallardo..

Read the Complete Story
Lamborghini Gallardo heads here


Yesterday I saw the movie titled Apaharan..
I should clarify in the beginning that I am not a movie critic..but some points to be noted:

: The same old story
: But the screenplay was good
: Ajay and Nana Patekar were really good
: Bipasha was wasted on that role.

But watchable movie.

Alonso Moving to McLaren!!!

McLaren has shocked the world of Formula One by announcing that World Champion Fernando Alonso will be driving for the team from the start of the 2007 season.

Alonso's decision to sign for the Woking-based team means that either Kimi Raikkonen or Juan Pablo Montoya will be moving aside to make way for the Spanish star - which is likely to have a considerable knock-on effect throughout the rest of the drivers market.

It will also be interesting to see what effect the announcement has on Alonso's motivation during the 2006 season - when he will still be driving for the Renault team. Juan-Pablo Montoya suffered from a relatively disappointing season in 2004 after it was announced that he would be leaving Williams for McLaren.

Ramp creates power as cars pass

"A road ramp that uses passing cars to generate power has been developed.

Dorset inventor Peter Hughes' Electro-Kinetic Road Ramp creates around 10kW of power each time a car drives over its metal plates.

More than 200 local authorities had expressed an interest in ordering the £25,000 ramps to power their traffic lights and road signs, Mr Hughes said.

Around 300 jobs are due to be created in Somerset for a production run of 2,000 ramps next year.

Plates in the ramp move up and down as vehicles pass over them, driving a generator.

'The ramp is silent, comfortable and safe for vehicles,' Mr Hughes said.

Underneath the Electro-Kinetic Road Ramp
Inventor Peter Hughes spent £1m developing the ramps

Depending on the weight of the vehicle passing overhead, between five and 50kW can be generated."
