You must have heard about the tilted axis of the earth, the tilted coconut tree, the tilted tower of Pisa, tilted building, but have you heard of the tilted rocket. This jugaad was made possible by the two popular Indian characters – Santa and Banta, famous for their sense of humour and funny wisdom! Many jokes are attributed to them. In these hard times of Covid pandemic they bring some cheer and a smile. Here is one such incident where their wisdom helps NASA to correct the misfiring rocket during launch and take off in full glory thereby saving the embarrassment of a failed launch.

Santa and Banta seem to be very popular in India and their reputation has spread around the world where ever Indians have settled down. After hearing a lot about Santa and Banta's innovative ideas and sense of humor, they were invited to the US. They were warmly welcomed by the Indian diaspora and the locals, and many visits were planned for them. And one of them, being the visit to NASA launch centre to witness the launch of Apollo rocket at NASA. They were guests of honour. And both of them were looking forward to witness the launch of the giant rocket.

After a couple of days of parties, celebrations and gatherings, they reached the launch pad at the appointed hour and were briefed about NASA, the Apollo rocket and the launch formalities. At the launch time there was pin drop silence. Countdown started, 10,9,8....1. The rocket didn't fire. The silence was deafening. There was confusion, the experts checked and pronounced, ready for launch. The countdown started again. Again the rocket didn't fire. The experts were wondering what could be the reason. After going through all checks, green signal was given. Countdown started, but the rocket refused to fire. The experts were a dejected lot after having spent months to ready the rocket for launch.

It was a very awkward moment for the experts. They were planning to abandon the launch till further notice instead of the embarrassment of a failed launched. One of the experts suggested since Santa and Banta are present here, they could check with them the possible reason for misfiring. They could have some answer. Couple of NASA experts approached Santa and Banta and told him of the failed launch.

Santa and Banta talked to each other in Punjabi and told the experts. Can you tilt the rocket to 45 degree a couple of times. The experts consulting with each other, responded, it is difficult but can be done. Santa and Banta told them - tilt the rocket three times and start countdown immediately without further delay. 99.9 per cent it should work.

The experts ordered the huge rocket to be tilted three times to 45 degrees. Once done, ordered countdown again, 10,9,8....1 fire. And the rocket fired and took off in full glory. The experts were relieved. There was rejoicing, clapping and celebration all around. The experts rushed towards Santa and Banta, thanking them profusely for saving their day, and further asked, how did it you figure out the problem and come out with the unique solution.

Santa and Banta looked at each other and smiled. They said, we're experienced in such problems. Indians are known for juggad, that's innovative ideas. In Delhi, especially during winter whenever our scooter wouldn't start, we would tilt it to 45 degrees and then kick, it would fire and start. We applied the same principal here, and it worked. All had a hearty laugh. Santa and Banta were hailed and the media covered the news,  and praised them for avoiding embarrassment to the NASA team of experts. Santa and Banta were true heroes!

NewYear celebration 

Every year end, people around the world rejoice and celebrate the arrival of the New Year with great hope and renewed spirit. Every country celebrates the New Year in their unique way with people gathering at prominent structures, public places for singing, cheering, light shows and fireworks. It's followed dance and music and grand parties till early morning. But do you know how the New Year celebration started?

The first recorded New Year's celebration dates back 4,000 years to Babylon, when the first moon after the spring equinox marked a new year. In 46 BC, Julius Caesar created a calendar with January 1 as the first day of the year, partly to honour Janus, the month's namesake. Since then 1 January is celebrated as the New Year day.

A Happy New Year to all my readers!
