My new ozone blue Swift Diesel VDi !!

I finally got my swift diesel Vdi on Saturday and had a long time wish fulfilled by the almighty himself and yes to some extent maruti udyog too. The last time on this blog, i had written a review of the swift diesel, but this time it was mine and only mine to enjoy thoroughly!! Here are a few cool snaps of the automobile, waiting for the customary puja at the ganesh temple near my home!

This colour is so pleasant to my eye, that it soothes me down completely after a stressful day at work! The torque in this machine is amazing and the fuel efficiency is going to leave you speechless! With upgraded michelin tyres and alloys, this is a joy to drive around. absolutely great!

And god said let there be light! - The chinnaswamy stadium, Bangalore

And Bajaj said, yes its done!!

Challenge: When the Chinnaswamy Cricket Stadium in Bangalore approached Bajajfor floodlighting their cricket field, we were sure of being inside the winner’s circle. But the task ahead was tough, unlike the rest of the India stadia. The lighting had to overcome the huge canopies covering the stands. Canopies, that could cast a huge shadow over the area near the boundary line. For Bajaj, it meant critical aming of each floodlight, besides the raising of the towers to over 60 metres. And 100% victory.

Solution: With Bajaj on the job, the GE Ultra Sport Floodlights soon bathed the Indian Cricket Team in their glory as they effected one of their greatest victories over Pakistan in the ‘96 World Cup, and yet again when they comprehensively beat Australia in the Titan Cup. Needless to say, every such victory is a victory for Bajaj Engineering and Projects BU too.

Indira Gandhi Musical Fountain, Raj Bhavan Road, Bangalore

Today I had a chance to finally splurge on some real good low light night time photography at the Indira Gandhi musical fountain.

The photos did come out well, but the fountain itself sponsored by the Indian Railways, was too basic, and the effects and lighting repeated many times. For a half an hour show and a Rs.10 ticket fee, this is more than one can ask for to spend a cool summer evening away from the din of traffic.
