Ben's Corner #8: Royal Enfield's flagship in the offing

Recently a video surfaced on Youtube where a KTM Duke 390 rider was chasing a test bike supposed to be the upcoming Royal Enfield Continental GT 750 somewhere near Salem. While there were many such videos on the internet, this one went viral because even at speeds in the ball park of 155 Kmph, the Duke rider was not able to chase the bike on test. Not only that, at one part of the video, the gap even widened further between the two. With this video at hand, it is very clear that the test bike is capable of going past 155 Kmph.

கழிவினில் கரைந்த கடவுள்

நண்பர்களுடன் நடந்து சென்ற பாதையில் காவல் துறை நிமிர்ந்து நிற்க...
காதலர்கள் இணை இணையாய் காலம் கடத்திய தெரு விளக்குக்கம்பத்தடியும் வேலியின் வசப்பட...

Whether your weather, man-made?

It's not natural as we think, but an international conspiracy that is being run by the US government. There is a hypothesis that the failure of monsoon and the severe drought occurred in Tamil Nadu in 2016-17 is a man made one. All I say is one acronym, HAARP (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program), a technology developed by the USA for modifying the weather artificially. It is said that one of the stations of HAARP is located in mountain range adjacent to Tirupati that caused the drought in Tamil Nadu.

You will even hate Taramani but, won't be disappointed: Ram

With his daughter's crayon arts welcoming the visitors, the drawing hall of Director Ram's office reminds us of the memories of his Thangameenkal, that runs in our minds. Carrying those memories, Soundarya and I entered the room where Ram was waiting for us to interview him. This was one of the dream moments for me, coming true. Though I had already interviewed a lot of celebrities before, I was always having a separate list of special-personalities to meet and interact. And, Ram being one of them, it's like a check box crossed in my bucket list.
