OT, couldn't help but to write on seeing iraghava's signature..

When one is stuck in dire situations like this, the idea is to make a hole in the cork all the way down and then slowly push the cork into the container, not the best solution, but situations demand it sometimes

Forgot to mention, one needs to cut the top portion of the cork with a sharp knife/ blade as deep as possible so that it is easier to push the cork in. Sharp tools are meant to avoid cork chip afterwards.

Thumbs down sun-glasses at night

Is is recommended to wear light-tinted sun-glasses at night to keep the glare of the on-coming head-lights?
I tried some but feel that any tint however light is dangerous, since It might interfere with the ability to see, for example cycles against the on-coming extremely powerful headlights of trucks and others who never dip in India.

If there are any special glasses which will not interfere with vision but cut only the glare, then I will buy it whatever the cost!

Amber anti-glare glasses are generally used to make night-driving safer. Refer the link below. The same glasses are used for skit shooting sports, good visibility while cutting down the glare from sun rays and powerful lamps alike.

Anti-glare coating on the glasses. This doesn't tint the glass, just reduces the glare.

Ray ban Aviators in green tints. Have been using them for almost two years now and find them quite useful. Only thing they aren't as close to the face as you'd want them to be as some light does enter from the sides.

I have also heard only good things about Serengeti's with a driver's gradient. Has anyone tried those? Are they easily available in India?

Nothing like the classic Ray Ban Aviator series. Dont particularly like all the new wrap-around stuff. Classics are the best.

After Rayban Aviators, Fastrack seems to be the famous ones. I have one too

Dude i said ALMOST and didn't mention everyone should wear it as its a personal choice. Generally if you see people driving cars almost everyone these days wear sunglasses as its tough to drive the car in hard sunshine so its quite handy.
In delhi atleast i see most of the people wearing them(am not talking about the taxiwallahs and even a few of them also wear in my company).

Rayban Aviator - first pair gifted by my brother during my 11th standard Having lost that one i picked another and ever since then they have stayed with me. The only other "branded" ones i had was a pair of Police but lost them on the beach of Goa :( In between bought many others but none of them ever lasted with me. So Aviator is the one that i currently possess along with one sports pair for my cycling

I bought this RayBan in 2003. Before that also I was using a different model of Ray-ban (not Aviator). After that also I bought a couple of Sunglasses including Polaroids. But they all are kept in the cars and this one is still my favorite.

I think you completely missed the point in his signature.
