14.87 Kmpl

How to calculate mileage?

  1. Fill up tank completely and reset one of the trip counters to zero before leaving the petrol pump.
  2. Travel, travel travel - till the needle reaches somewhere near Empty.
  3. Fill her up again. Note the liters of petrol that it took to fill her up. To calculate the mileage, divide distance traveled since last tank up by the number of liters that you filled her up with right now.

My Maruti Swift VXi (Fuel Tank Capacity ~43 liters) gave - for almost all highway driving:
576.3 / 38.74 = 14.8760971 kilometers per liters

Psychotic stew

My brain is a vessel
holding the chopsuey of my thoughts
perpetually simmering, occaisonally boiling.
As I carried this vessel on my shoulders through the corridors of life,
banging against the shelves lining it,
causing stuff to fall from the shelves into the stew -
new, old, leftovers, rare, inherited ingredients
adding garnish to the soup of my soul.


I remember the day I banged my pitcher into yours,
we ended up spilling our gravies into each others bowls,
was fun.
We walked together through the passage,
exchanging more and more,
becoming one,
till both our stews looked and tasted and smelled the same.


And now half way through life,
as we look back - or into what we have got so far,
I feel proud of what we have become -
A pair of cannibals who secretly kill extremists, boil and eat their hearts and shit on their dead bodies.

Manually etched and solder tinned PCB!

Manually etched and solder tinned PCB!
Used nail polish to cover the area which i didn't want to be eroded away by ferric chloride. Then after etching, sandpapered away the nail polish and tinned the design with solder. Did this in 2003 - during first year at VESIT

VESIT Journal Cover Pages

Since we were always in perpetual need of these during college, we scanned them and printed them whenever necessary. Was cleaning out the files from my hard disk, thought I would put these up here in case current students at my alma mater needed them :)
