Drag Race in New Town

The second and final part of a Drag Race of cars took place today morning at Action Area III of New Town. The rules of the game are that two cars participate in each go for a 400m straight race. The loser gets eliminated. Here is a pic:
I requested the organisers to have an exciting car event in winter. Incidentally, we received an application recently from Mumbai requesting 17 acres space for a great musical band show in the first week of December: I am thinking of the grassland zone within Eco Park for this. Let's see.

Prof Sukanta Chaudhury of Jadavpur University told us of Bichitra Web Project today evening at Rabindra Tirtha. In Rabindra Tirtha, we have the objective of having a leading web networking core of Rabindranath for the Bengali diaspora around the world. A modest beginning has already been made. The second phase process has been initiated. A photo:

After the event, I discussed with Prof Chaudhuri about the possibility of linking up Rabindra Tirtha Web Effort (Time Line on Rabindranath) with Bichitra.

  1. Sir, Bichitra: Online Tagore Variorum :: School of Cultural Texts and Records has done an excellent job by way of scanning/doing LLC of life time works of Rabindranth and archiving the same in soft form. But, we do not know whether they or any other similar institute have done scanning/LLC of our all time great epics Mahabharat and Ramayan or they are contemplating to do so in near future to present us/next generation such an excellent archive in soft form?
    Please let us know on this score,sir.
