Built in 1 B.C.

Constructed in 1 B.C. by Ko Chengot Chola

Enjoying the Indian rains? I’m sure it’s equally enjoyable driving around craters on the road, during and after the rains. This happens every year, and we get a new thin layer of tarmac-asphalt – which again deteriorate in no time.

1-BC Built in 1 B.C.

The picture above was taken 20 days ago, @Thiruvanaikaval temple, Trichy. This was constructed in 1 B.C by Ko Chengot Cholan (Chenkannan Chozhan). After over 2000 years, we’ve made strides in quality infrastructure, where speed-breakers serve as axle breakers, roads that serve as rain-water harvest craters, and new buildings that leak and with floor cracks!

After all, it’s not the roads that deteriorate…

    The idea behind Tumbl.in is quite similar to StumbleUpon. The difference is that Tumbl.in will throw up random pages from those links that are shared on Twitter. To me, this service is quite useful as I always look for new and random information; and I’ve been using Google Reader Play
