The city where Lord Krishna did his education in Sandipani ashram, Kalidas created literary master pieces and your sincerely did his schooling. The city is in National news for all the wrong reasons. Few ABVP "students" killed Prof on matter of college elections! What can be more shameful and disgraceful for the people of Ujjain.

It is a blackmark on people of Ujjain, who take pride of sending best students to best educational institutes around the country in a number vast disproportionate to its population. Be it IITs, IIM, ISB, AIIMS or any other top Indian or even International institute, Ujjain always had more than its share of representation. Today this incidence make the students from Ujjain humiliated and ashamed.

I am hopeful that people of Ujjain will take this seriously and would do whatever it takes to bring culprits to justice. It is sad that law enforcing agencies which were present at the incidence in the first place failed to stop the misfortune and now needs national media pressure to even take first small action. Please keep politics outside the college gates and prove that fabric of Indian law though is in bad shape but has not yet shambled. Its increasingly getting difficult to trust Indian government and its various agencies. It all happening wrong!

No Arbitrage Principal

This is a fantasy to which my Thermo D Prof claimed that I violated the second law of thermodynamics. The linked news story talks about two Irish scientists who claim to find a way to generate electricity by a combination of magnets such that the system produces electricity almost 3 times of what was given in. This looks more like a betting game where I sure shot win 3 for every 1. That means I can earn 2 everytime for as long as I can ;)

Are you guys serious? I hope you are and sincerely wish you to make my fantasy come true. What power will this technology have to revolutionize the world.

But If I see along the subjects that I have studied till now, the theory is contradictory. Some Englishman said that there are no free lunches, Chemistry told that energy cannot be created or destroyed, Thermodynamics second law also stops me from decreasing the entropy of the universe by such wishful thinking and now latest my Fin Prof says that money cannot be made free i.e. For similar things I have to pay similar price else I can arbitrage and earn risk free money!

Good luck guys! Prove the world that you are not another set of Ramar Pillai who made petrol out of some shrubs.
