Fighting Traffic Chaos

Some years back when I came to City Beautiful ‘Chandigarh’ . Like everybody who comes here I fell in love with the place. For its planned Living,Gardens, Broad roads with trees along sides. There was hardly any traffic problem those days. There is a duet Punjabi songs which goes like : “To drive on roads of Chandigarh is like, paper boat sailing on water flow” “The decorated round abouts are like , The embroidery done by you "

My Ubuntu CD arrives.

Ubuntu is one cool linux distro’s available these days , and they are shipping it free to your doors for promotional purposes. I requested it a month ago and it arrived yesterday to my place. i installed it on my machine as it came. ubuntu is an African word meaning ‘Humanity to others’, or ‘I am what I am because of who we all are’. To be frank ubuntu rocks and beats windows in every aspect as user friendliness is its key USP.
