Re: Indian Urban Development and Public Policy Discussion

Chennai has one AL electric bus running on a trial basis since last month. It runs on route A1 (Central-Thiruvanmiyur) if anyone wants to try it out. I will attempt when I go there next time.

Re: Chandrayan-2 Mission

It's not visible to Goldstone anymore, or they are communicating with other payloads, so the orbiter and lander are not showing up on the website anymore. It had been quiet for a few hours before that, fwiw.

Re: Chandrayan-2 Mission

Sir carrier lock means we are mostly seeing power which is above noise floor and the lock signifies that there are no runaway frequency errors or phase drifts.

How strong is the pan-muslim vote as opposed to the paki vote bank? I mean, do issues like kashmir or any other paki-pasand topics resonate among the larger Muslim community? Maybe that could explain these contortions by Khanna, et al?
