So how do we fix gridlock? IBM says building more (or wider) roads won't help—not enough space or money. The answer lies in data. Which makes sense, as IBM makes money by processing and selling data.

Can someone take action and suggest this solution to BMTC. EVen after many complaints they are ignorant on this one.

Taxes & Corruption - comparative figures/estimate for Karnataka?


Last week, GoI released some data on Direct Tax collections. I thought why not compare them against estimates of "alleged size" of corruption in Karnataka. Why should we compare only Direct Tax? Because to me, this corruption thing we hear about is like corporates and individuals paying additional direct tax.

Hi All, I'm one of the regular commuters who has to cross the infamous and extremely narrow Graphite India traffic junction at EPIP, Whitefield for more than 7 years now. Ofcourse the number of companies have multiplied in EPIP, for which this is the Only entry point for 90% of the commuters who come from the city.
