A Narrow Escape

I had to write an essay in college during the Business Communication lecture. So here it goes :

                                 This incident took place about a week ago. We had gone for a family trip to Jawhar, a small hill station about 2 hours away from home. To reach Jawhar you need to take a few winding roads, some having very sharp turns. The route is very scenic as you climb higher with the hills on one side and valley on the other. Due to this, many bikers and youngsters are also seen on this road. 



 It so happened that once my uncle was driving our car on the ghats. Since there wasn't any other vehicle, we were at a high speed. It so happened that a particularly sharp turn, we saw a group of bikers. There was gravel on the road due to which they skidded very badly. Since we were at a high speed and weren't expecting this, my uncle pushed hard on the brakes, causing the car to spin until it stopped 5 feet away from the edge of the road at a height of 200 feet. That was a narrow escape as either 2 bikers would have got injured or a car full of 7 people. But everyone was saved.

Sab Ganda Hai, Par Sab Dhandha Hai - Maha Govt Plot Twist

Everyone looks forward to weekends for the simple reason that they get to relax, unwind and recharge themselves for another hectic workweek. But not the Maharashtra Govt. Atleast not this weekend. In between Friday night and Saturday early morning, our State Govt proved to us that if they put their minds to getting something done, they will; even if it involves staying up post their working hours. Hail Politics and Self - Interest! I guess it's pretty apparent by now what this writeup is going to be about. But no. I won't bore you with that anymore. Instead, I'll include a few links to help you catch up:

I just came to know ALL these products belong to HUL (Hindustan Unilever) and I'm shook

Two years ago my teacher sent the entire class on an assignment as part of our Principles of Marketing subject in which we had to visit different retail outlets and check which company manufactured them. I remember going to one such place with 3 other class mates, with Note Pad open in our phones and discreetly clicking pictures of all HUL products. It sort of felt weird at first because we had never done the picture clicking part before, but slowly got used to it as soon as we realized that the line of HUL products was just never ending. We submitted the assignment the next day and that was the end of the story. But just yesterday, I opened the HUL website again as part of my semester  VI Logistics subject assignment (yes I do get homework even in TY!). I was surprised by the products that I saw.
