End of parking crisis at  Kidwai Memorial hospital

End of parking crisis at Kidwai Memorial hospital

End of parking crisis at Kidwai Memorial Hospital is going to be a reality.  As the BBMP had proposed for the construction of Multi-level parking complex at the premises of Kidwai Memorial Hospital in 2017.

Kidwai memorial hospital

Established in 1973, Kidwai is the premier state-run cancer hospital in Karnataka and sees thousands of patients and their attendants every day. Kidwai Hospital has been one of the major hubs along the diary circle junction and thousands visit the hospital everyday.  The 3 storey parking puts an end to parking of vehicles in front of the hospital and the extortion by private parking mafia.

Parking place at Kidwai hospital

The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has invited bids for building another multi-level parking complex at the hospital.

The three-storey complex will cost Rs 14 crore to build and will accommodate 150 cars and 100 two-wheelers. The project was sanctioned in the BBMP’s 2017-18 budget.

The parking complex will replace an old structure which is located behind the main building but is within the hospital’s larger compound

Bengalurean demonstrates ‘autonomous’ helicopter drone flight

Bengalurean demonstrates ‘autonomous’ helicopter drone flight

Flying a full-fledged ‘helicopter’ to fly autonomously is among the toughest task in the unmanned aerial vehicle business. Bengaluru-based drone specialist, Mr. Adarsh.  N. has cracked the code, thus by becoming India’s first private individual to do it.

At a field on the city’s outskirts, Adarsh’s 4 Kg. ‘Thunder Tiger Raptor 50’ helicopter drone took off smoothly, followed a predefined flight path and landed precisely at a spot earmarked.

Autonomous drone

The entire operation was not remote controlled but was in autonomous mode.   The duration of the flight was short but the range could have been extended up to 40 minutes by equipping the aircraft with an additional fuel tank.  The autonomous flight achieved an altitude of 35 meters.  The drone was powered by flow fuel (a mix of methanol, nitromethane and oil).

Using a software, the way points of the drone were marked out. The path was a rectangular path, complete with the points where the copter changed direction and landing spots, all tracked from a ground control station.

Autonomous drone using technology

The software interface gives a full, real-time information on the flight, tracked on a map. The speed, altitude and duration were all present in the interface.  The range of the drone was restricted only by the helicopter size and fuel capacity.

Several Bengaluru-based DRDO laboratories and state-owned Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), are currently in research mode to perfect the autonomous helicopter flight. But the drone choppers are of a heavier build, 10 kg and upwards.

Perfecting the ‘autonomous’ flight in the copter mode could potentially revolutionize management of disasters, traffic and fire safety, besides reconnaissance in military operations. Remote-controlled drones are limited by sight. Autonomous drones can  go anywhere, depending on the fuel capacity.  They could be designed to hover above a particular traffic junction relaying critical data in multimedia or drop inflatable floats to drowning victims.

Theaters these days make most of their revenue from food.

There is no legal or statutory provision to prohibit one to carry personal food and water to cinema.  This is a rule flouted by cinema halls having their own stalls for food and beverages. The reason, of course, is that the theatre wants people to buy their expensive food.  Most theatres do not make money from ticket sales alone.  They make money from selling food and drinks. As a result they don’t allow people to bring food and drinks in. The theater owners charge exuberantly for edible items sold inside.  The way in which movie theatres conduct their food business is a form of racketeering, which is very much a crime. Buying something to eat in theatre will definitely burns a hole in the pocket.  It is something like offering of dishonest service to solve a problem that wouldn’t exist if not for the actions of the entity offering.

A theatre is not a cinema that sells popcorn but it is a popcorn stand that shows cinemas.  Money cannot be made by showing movies but a lot of money can be made by selling popcorn for a bucket  at Rs.370-380 instead of  Rs.25-30 a bucket.  The theatre makes more money by selling popcorn and candy, so they try to establish a monopoly on movie snacks by banning outside food and drink.

The restrictions particularly affect old people and those who due to health issues cannot eat outside food. As long as one doesn’t leave wrappers and bottles behind for the cleaners to pick up, and as long as one respects and cleans-up after, it is okay to carry food into a theatre.  One has to make sure that the food being carried in would not cause any unnecessary problems for other visitors or the staff.  Food with thick stenches should be avoided.
