“When what you are deeply passionate about, what you can be best in the world at and what drives your economic engine come together, not only does your work move toward greatness, but so does your life. For, in the end, it is impossible to have a great life unless it is a meaningful life. And it is very difficult to have a meaningful life without meaningful work. Perhaps, then, you might gain that rare tranquility that comes from knowing that you’ve had a hand in creating something of intrinsic excellence that makes a contribution. Indeed, you might even gain that deepest of all satisfactions: knowing that your short time here on this earth has been well spent, and that it mattered.”

An additional Spark

Yesterday India's favorite cruiser class maker Royal Enfield unveiled the new Thunder Bird with Twin Spark Plug assisted Engine. The bike not only would be better in mileage than the current version, but would be boasting off a better price tag of over 1 lakh too!! But amazingly enough, there is no such update about the release on the Thunder Bird site!!

But the interesting point here is the Engine, with Twin Spark Plug. The wind is still lingering with smell of the war that raged between TVS and Bajaj over this issue. Wonder if this release is gonna re-ignite the war or this time Bajaj would choose to be a bit kind hearted ;). But one thing, which I guess, goes against Bajaj's stand on Twin Spark plug engines is that, Bajaj has a patent on implementing Twin Spark Plugs on small engines (I'm certainly not sure of Bajaj's interpretation of the phrase "small engine") and guess that's exactly where TVS lost the plot. But the Royal Enfields start with 350cc and go above and also the engine genre and design is completely different from the conventional engines here in India

More details/pics about the bike can be found here
