Bangalore Traffic and Circles

Bangalore traffic is going bad day by day. But, I don't see much improvement on the infrastructures. All the government is trying to do is widen the roads and build circles without signals. I hate the circles concept. You expect the bangalore traffic to flow automatically without any signals from any direction to any direction. In bangalore, only the Hebbal flyover is up to the mark in the standards to have a free flow. Recently, they opened the circle near freedom park. Automobiles coming from any direction can circle around and take any direction out. Someone comes from the right end and wants to take the left road, and Someone else comes from the left and wants to take the right road. Both crosses each other and the traffic piles up. At least they would have made some layers of road which exits to different roads. Each and every civil engineer studies about the bridges and fly overs that aids the free flow of traffic. But, In reality they don't implement it quite often as they have constraints on the space, time, budget, and politics.

Sea Biscuit(2003)

Sea Biscuit(2003) is an amazing movie.
Have seen it few times and won't be bored to see many more times.
Well written by Laura Hillenbrand and nicely screen played by Gary Ross.
I liked the four main characters, Tom smith (played by Chris Cooper),
Red (played by Michael Angarano),
sea Biscuit and Charles Howard (played by Jeff Bridges)
Loved their expressions, especially Tom Smith's facial expressions at times for the dialogs of Charles Howard.

The story line was awesome, it clearly shows the mix of right people with greate attitude put together can achieve anything even if they lack in some way. Small Horse, Tall Jockey, Old Trainer and the Owner. Small Horse had the spirit to win the well built horses. Tall jockey had the attitude to understand and mingle with it and beat all the right sized(short) jockeys. Old Trainer could clearly judge the horses, train them, and correct the jockeys mistakes. The Owner had picked the right trainer and he was there whenever they need or any one of them fail.

Few of best dialogs that i liked from this movie are

"You know,you don't throw a whole life away...
just 'cause he's banged up a little."

"Brick by brick my citizens, brick by brick." - by The Roman Emperor, Hadrian

It ain'tjust the speed. It's the heart.
