Metro Opens More Than Just Doors
Hello Metro! How do you do?
About you, here I write a view!
Hema Mikkilineni is my name
Greenbelt, MD is where I'm!!
C 2, R 12 are what I take
Mandan Rd - Berwyn Heights I commute!
Using Metro for 4 months so far
And happy with it by far!!
When I think of Metro, I think of buses
More than that I think of their drivers!
They are polite and full of patience
Service minded, with cheerful ambiance!!
'This bus goes to.....' is their sentence
If display board is under maintenance!
With charming grace and tender care
They greet a customer everywhere!!
They lend a hand to elderly customers
They lend an ear to the new comers!
If a regular commuter is not there yet
They look at the stop left and right!!
Their sense of security is praiseworthy
And they aim the time most of the time!
Their gentleness reflects on each passenger
Lets me do duties better than before!!
The pleasing personality what they present
Your business philosophy that they represent
Make me miss them on an off day
Even though none is related in any way!!
They are not the creators of wheel
But good creatures who steer with zeal!
They are not just the drivers
But Metro's wonderful messengers!!
Thanks to Metro, I walk a few steps
Which is good for the health conscious!
Traffic is not what I concentrate
Work is the one that I meditate!!
Metro transport is economical
To me it's also philosophical!
To appreciate great effort Metro had put
Reasons I quoted are not complete!!
Enjoy the work in jubilation
Run your service without concatenation!
Be a solution to mitigate the pollution
And save the energy for future generation!!
Yeah… it is busy, but 'm not crazy
Rather took it little bit easy!
To say "Thank You" there's always a time
Metro opens not just doors, but another day with sublime!!

What Causes a Business Cycle?
The GDP is, in a nutshell to put
The total value of a nation’s output!
To derive the output
The capital is an essential input!
On the availability of capital
Generally depends, a business cycle!
Interest rates, both high and low
Influence the capital flow!

An Idea at the Traffic Light: $2,500 Car was the Resulting Product
(A class mate's response to my MBA assignment on Tata Nano car)
Hema, thanks for the informative post. I actually heard about the Tata Nano on the news recently and was shocked to learn that it has a fuel economy of over 60 mpg on highways and over 50 mpg on city roads. That is absolutely incredible! With gas prices here in California topping $4.15/gallon, I could definitely use a fuel-efficient car. Ratan Tata came up with a great idea, but with all due respect to him, that is one ugly looking car.
Thank you for your response.
At 65 mph of maximum speed
Nano will not get a speeding ticket!
At the price tag of $ 25 hundred
It may not offer cushy comfort!
It's not for markets of the US and Europe
Neither for the procession of Vatican Pope!
But, for millions of middle class Indians
Tata Nano will be a mobile heaven!
Yes, Tata's feat is indeed incredible
To too many families, it's a miracle!
Nano is destined to be useful
But not blessed to be beautiful!
You see, it doesn't even have AC
Well, utility takes precedence to beauty!
To dowse fire, we don't need sacred water,
Will wonderfully serve, even murky water!
