Sada Jama Pora Lok

                   Fossils has released its latest album F3,and as expected from this undisputed no1 Bengali rock band F3 is a awesome collection as was Fossils & Fossils2 was.Tracks such as Bhoot R Tilottoma,Bidroher- Pandulipi,Haspatale,Maa,Phire Cholu are food for the fans.But rather than the music which is always great, what is more likely to get noticed is the albums conceptual theme,Death of a fictional character called “SADA JAMA PORA LOK”,I start a few speculation about him and this is what i felt.

                  The sada jama man is narrated as is being killed by three bullets near  “RAIL LNE ER DHARE”.Lot of speculation

sada-jama-sada

goes over this so called accident,until the sada jama scumbles to death in HASPATAL E,where from he becomes “National Laash”,oviously a “Todonto Commetee” is set up for the investigation.

               Now Train track,accident,todonto comittee does all this sound familiar to any previous newz,yes it does! I will not certainly name the incident coz as in the song it self after the incident for few days his ”BHOKTERA” becomes “KICHUTA HOTAASH”,ya only for few days of course!

                   Now really this is human nature,people shows their interest only until the news is hot,then all becomes normal.But the band has obviously showed how the at least haven't forgotten any incident.

                   Now you may think ooh its just yet again another blab blab about another murder or what of a man who became a great news a few days ago,but no think of it like this,what does SADA JAMA means?Innocence,peace and harmony.The death of Sada Jama shows us how every day our Innocence is being taken away from us. Ultimately as a result of this we are slowly becoming “DANOB” and the band sings about”DANOBER PANDULIPI”.

Howrah Bridge

                     Today as I was having my first walk on the only suspension bridge in our city ie,”THE HOWRAH BRIDGE”aslo known as “Rabindra Setu” with one of my close friend Aritra da,I was fascinated by this wonderful mighty structure. 

                      09-13-09_144515Its not that I have seen this monumental structure for the 1st time,but its excellence and utilty to the kolkata’s life is of utmost importance is what I felt today.

         Howrah Bridge is the undisputed link of life between Kolkata and Howrah.

 

 

 

The vital statistics of the howrah bridge are::::

Built                     1937—1943

Location               Kolkata, West Bengal, India

Current status       In use

                         Howrah Bridge is the gateway to Kolkata. Built on the Hooghly River, its original purpose was to facilitate military transportation between Kolkata and the industrial town of Howrah during World War II. It remains a cantilever bridge connecting the city to its main railway station, the Howrah Station, one of the busiest railway stations of the world.

History

Early plans

By the 19th century AD, Calcutta and Howrah on the opposite banks of the Hooghly River had grown to be the most important economic and cultural centers of British India, and a need for bridging the Hooghly River arose.

In 1862, the Government of Bengal asked George Turnbull, Chief Engineer of the East India Railway Company to study the feasibility of bridging the Hooghly River — he had recently established the company's rail terminus in Howrah. He reported on 29 March with large-scale drawings and estimates that:

  1. The foundations for a bridge at Calcutta would be at a considerable depth and cost because of the depth of the mud there.
  2. "The impediment to shipping would be considerable".
  3. A good place for the bridge was at Pulta Ghat "about a dozen miles north of Calcutta" where a "bed of stiff clay existed at no great depth under the river bed".
  4. He recommended and designed a suspended-girder bridge of five spans of 400 feet and two spans of 200 feet.

The bridge was not built.

The pontoon bridge

The famous Floating Pontoon Bridge was built in 1874 by Sir Bradford Leslie.

           The Old Howrah Bridge - The Floating Pontoon Bridge.

            The Floating Pontoon Bridge was built using timber on pontoon. The bridge was opened to let river traffic through. The bridge had hinged shore spans since Hooghly River is subjected to tides. During high tides these became very steep and bullock carts were not able to negotiate their way, which resulted in traffic jams. It was also feared that the floating bridge could affect river currents and cause silting problems. With time the bridge became too inadequate for the ever increasing traffic.

                               Due to all these reasons Government of Bengal in 1933 decided to replace the Floating Pontoon Bridge. The Floating Pontoon Bridge which was originally commissioned to service for 25 years, was decommissioned on February 1943, after its long service of 69 years.

The modern bridge

                                Construction of the New Howrah Bridge was started on 1937. The Cantilever Era was prevailing at that time, and engineers felts that cantilever bridges were more rigid than suspension bridges. This bridge is one of the finest cantilever bridges in the world - left to India by the British engineers.

                                Considering various aspects like navigational, hydraulics, tidal conditions of the river and the projected traffic conditions, Rendel Palmer & Tritton came up with a design for a cantilever bridge of 1500 feet, with a 71 feet wide roadway and two 15 feet wide cantilever footways. Considering the quotation from various firms, the contract was awarded to Cleveland Bridge & Engineering Co. Ltd of Darlington, with a strong recommendation that they use Indian-made steel, which they agreed to do. Out of the total 26,500 tons of steel used, Tata Iron and Steel Company supplied 23,500 tons of steel and fabrication was done by Braithwaite, Burn and Jessop Co. at four different shops in Calcutta.

                                The two huge caissons which was sunk (on the first stage of construction) is still the biggest ever sunk caisson on land. It is told that while clearing the muck, all kinds of curious things was brought up, which included anchors, grappling irons, cannons, cannon balls, brass vessels, variety of coins. 40 Indian crane drivers were trained on the job and worked in three shifts of 8 hours each. The job of sinking the caisson were carried out round-the-clock at a rate of a foot or more per day.

                                One night, while grabbing out the muck to enable the caisson to move, the ground below it yielded and the entire mass plunged down two feet, shaking the ground. The impact of this shake was so intense that the seismograph at Khidirpore had registered as earthquake and a Hindu temple on the shore was destroyed; which was subsequently rebuilt. In spite of these challenging situations the caissons were placed true to position.

                               Howrah_Bridge_01 To keep the water out at depth of 103 feet (31 m) around the foundations so that construction can be done, around 500 people were employed on the compressed air operation.The air pressure maintained was about 40 lbs per square inch (2.8 bar). The work on the foundation was completed on November 1938. By the end of 1940 the erection of the cantilever arms was commenced and was completed in mid-summer of 1941. The two halves of the suspended span, each 282 feet (86 m) long and weighing 2,000 tons, were built in December 1941. 16 hydraulic jacks, each of 800 ton capacity were pressed in to service for joining the two halves of the suspended span.

The Howrah Bridge

                        After completing the steel work of the deck and concreting of roadway. the New Howrah Bridge was finally opened to traffic on February 1943. The old Floating Pontoon Bridge was decommissioned. In May 1946, census of the daily traffic on the bridge was taken and it was found to be 27,400 vehicles, 121,100 pedestrians and 2,997 cattle. The rate of only vehicle traffic over the bridge was 20% more than that on the London Bridge, in the same period, which was till then the busiest bridge in the metropolis.

                          The final cost of the bridge amounted to ₤2,500,000.

ARIIA the AI project of the film EAGLE EYE


I just watched Eagle Eye.
Eagle Eye has no human serial killer or psycho murderer, and, instead, the mastermind is a computer, its execution plan is perfect. Well, it is perfect by rate of probability anyway, as it so often calculates.

Eagle Eye is actually this mega computer built by the Ministry of Defense of the United States, and it has an audio user interface--in the form of a female voice named Aria. It collects all data of all people in the States, and possibly in the world too, and it analyses and makes patterns of these people; it knows everything about everyone, even their personality, so it can actually predict their course of actions when situations arise. As it collects all data, it is connected to all systems and networks, from ATMs to automated trains to common surveillance cameras. That means, it has access to everything electronic in the States, and maybe in the world.

And we all know that computers like this are usually incredibly smart. Now, the government people made a mistake bombing Iraq, and the computer is actually 'angry' over it. It sets itself on a mission to fix the 'corrupted' system by eliminating the corruption point, and that translates to murdering a list of very important country administers. But, the problem is, the program to the mission, called 'the Guillotine' or something, is locked biometrically--as any people designing programs like this would have the right mind to lock them--and the only person whose body is the key is patriotically dead not to let the computer unlock it.

Here comes the twist: another person in the world has his exact looks needed to unlock the program; he has a twin; and that's Shia LaBeouf. So, as any A.I. would do, the computer plans a whole plot to hunt him down and get him to it. And as it can't move, it has to use the sources it has, pull strings, and make people do its biddings--and making people do its deeds is what it does best, for it has information about everyone, giving it the advantage to choose the perfect persons, then arrange the perfect ways to 'motivate' that someone(s) to do as it says.

Speaking of the computer arranging things, the way Aria does things is just too awesome! It's like modern magic! And Aria's like this electronic witch who can turn every electronic system around to suit itself--or herself; it has a female voice anyway--without lifting a single finger (as if she had any)! Yes, it's a little creepy that she knows it all through all the electronic devices we have--and a little surprising to realise how much the whole world and us depend on these things--but still, she's crazy awesome! I think if a real person had all the access that she has, that person wouldn't be able to use it as well as her. Only a computer could navigate and coordinate all the plans like that; and change course that fast when things don't go according to plans.

Throughout the movie, I could almost feel Aria (yes, I'm calling the computer by her name now; Eagle Eye is just the project name) calculating in binary:

Planned step:

- true: next step as planned

- false: next set of plan (calculating...)

But then again, the whole plot of the movie is written by script-writers, so humans are able to think like a computer, as humans made them anyway... But that is not the point here; we are worshipping computers now!

Overall, the movie is a hunt, a race, a competition between humans and a computer. One has the perfect coordination, the artificial intelligence and everything that comes with it; the other is its creator, having the genuine intelligence, and the power to make it--but does it has the power to break it too?

Who will win in the end? The one who literally calculates everything? Or the one who calculated it, who outnumbers it, and who can do more than calculating?

And be the one who gets me to say Oh I Do
