Test Drive : BMW 330i - Temptation on Wheels

Anamit Sen spent a whole day evaluating a BMW 330i in and around Delhi and the NCR. I'm starting this review with a bit of news. Auto Bild magazine in Germany has just reported that the 2012 version of BMW's 3 Series, which will be the 6th generation of the 3 Series, is ready to be showcased at the Frankfurt Motor Show later this year. The reports say that this new BMW, classified internally as the F30 and going up against the Mercedes C Class, Audi's A4 and Volvo's S60, has borrowed quite a bit in terms of design from the 5 Series. It will break new ground in terms of safety and will have new four-cylinder turbocharged engines. The reports also says that though BMW may not be vorsprung durch technik (borrowing from Audi) or advanced/ahead through technology any more because competitors also have the equivalent of the advantages of Efficient Dynamics, the boffins DO have access to the parts and accessory shelf of the 5 Series. Which means it is quite possible that the F30 may offer features like night vision assistance, heads up display or HUD, lane changing assistance as well as automatic parking.

Giant UFO Crash With Aliens in India Report April Fool’s Day Hoax?

We came across an online news report from the Chandigarh Tribune in India dated March 31. The headline:


‘UFO crashlands in fields near city’

We’ve been unable to find any other reports on this UFO story but, and this is a BIG BUT, the news source, the Chandigarh Tribune, seems to be a legitimate news source ranked 18, 292 on Alexa. According to the report, a giant UFO, an ‘unidentified flying object said to be carrying “aliens” crash landed near Zirakpur in the early hours of Friday morning’. Zirakpur is a satellite town of Chandigarh (Pop. 10 million) located in the Mohali district of Punjab which would make the UFO story, a ‘local’ news report from the Tribune. According to the report, the UFO–an elliptical object the size of ‘five cargo ships’ crash landed ‘with a thud’ in a field. Punjab police have cordoned off the site with NASA officials ‘on their way’ to investigate the crash. Also headed to the alleged UFO crash:

‘Experts from the department of space and the Atomic Energy Commission, sleuths from the Research & Analysis Wing (RAW) and crack commandos of the army’s special forces are believed to be on their way to the site.’

When researching this report we discovered something we believe is interesting, the lack of UFO reports from India with a population of 1.2 billion people. We discovered a report which claimed there’s secret UFO bases on the border of China and India which both the China and India governments ‘hide’. (More on the alleged UFO bases later.)

Below, the giant UFO report which we took a screenshot in case it ‘vanishes’ from the web.


The TribuneinIndia.com:

    Chandigarh, March 31


    In a startling development an unidentified flying object said to be carrying “aliens” crash landed near Zirakpur in the early hours of Friday morning. Estimated to be the size of five cargo ships, this elliptical object that emitted an “intense white light encircled the fields before it went down with a thud. No one is believed to have been killed or injured and the area has been cordoned off by a large contingent of the Punjab police that has been rushed to the site.

Sourav has no political association: EC

Rejecting Trinamool Congress' view, the Election Commission on Thursday said it did no wrong in selecting Sourav Ganguly as its brand ambassador for the West Bengal polls and there was no evidence of the former Team India captain's participation in any political campaign.

"We have examined the question of Ganguly as a brand ambassador and ascertained that there is no such evidence of the former Team India's affiliation to CPM as claimed by Trinamool," state deputy Chief Electoral Office Dibyendu Sarkar told reporters here.

On Trinamool Congress submitting a CD to the EC on its allegation, Sarkar said, "The video CD was examined and we didn't find any evidence of participation of Ganguly in any political campaign."

Besides submitting the CD, Trinamool Congress had claimed that Ganguly could not be the EC brand ambassador as he had worked as the brand ambassador of several departments including the West Bengal Industrial Development Corporation (WBIDC) of the Left Front government in the state.

The CD showed footage of a press briefing by a state minister and news coverage in one of the Bengali television channels.

An EC press release said that Ganguly expressed concern at having his good office being dragged into controversy.

He strongly denied any involvement with any single political party and stated in unequivocal terms that whatever he did was done as a cricketer and in furtherance of the cause of the game, it said.

"The entire complaint along with the CD has been sent to the Election Commission of India and they will take the final decision," Sarkar said.

Ganguly and percussionist Bikram Ghosh were selected by EC which produced an audio-visual for telecast on major channels to create interest among the people to vote. The controversy arose when Urban Development MinisterAshok Bhattacharya, belonging to CPM, claimed Ganguly would campaign for him in the elections.

Top Indian scientist calls for nuclear moratorium

A top Indian scientist and government advisor has called for a moratorium on all future nuclear projects following the nuclear crisis in tsunami-hit Japan.

In an open letter, extracts of which were published in the media Friday, P. Balaram, director of the Indian Institute of Science and part of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's scientific advisory council, described the events in Japan as "a wake-up call" for India.

"We strongly believe that India must radically review its nuclear power policy," Balaram said in the letter, which was signed by 50 prominent figures.

"Pending the review, there should be a moratorium on all further nuclear activity, and revocation of recent clearances for nuclear projects," he said.

Fuel-hungry India has pushed ahead with its nuclear energy plans since 2008 when then-US president George W. Bush signed into law a nuclear deal that ended a three-decade ban on US nuclear trade with India.

Since then, France, Russia and private US and Japanese firms have been locked in fierce competition to sell new reactors to India.

Balaram's call marked the first direct appeal from within government circles for a nuclear moratorium.
