Owen, What is it with these guys and age?
If only you could tell them the stories of yore...eat your hearts out guys!
Hey, am geartly puffed to be a Banglorean, even in exile-on each of our visits to Shiva ,as kids, our father would tell us about this achievement and add some new piece of information about the electrification of Mysore state.There was this old gent I met once, think he was close to 99 yrs old, Dr.Tommy Chandy's father, who recounted a story about banaglore's electrification record and how there used to be a slight flicker of bulbs at 9 pm,when the lines changed...Very nostalgic Rustam, thanks
Axx
