Hi-Tech Hell - Road to Perdition

Just off the main road to Hi-tech City, barely 4 km away from the glitzy glass and steel towers district is Vittal Rao Nagar in Madhapur, Hyderabad. In addition to a college, the area houses some big corporate addresses, namely Reliance and Karvy and a cluster apartment buildings, primarily occupied by software professionals.

The road to this apartment cluster is in shambles despite many an effort by the residents to bring to the notice of the civic authorities the dismal road condition in this locality. Residents have organized a signature campaign to put pressure on the commissioner, written letters to the media, filed online complaints but the civic authorities are in no mood to have the road fixed.

Builders in this area have often expressed their inability to get the road built, as the local municipal commissioner of Serilingampally demanded an amount of 60,000 rupees per apartment to get the road done.

Vittal Rao Nagar comes under the Serilingampally municipal corporation and NOT under the Municipal Corporation of Hyderabad.

This is very horrible road that i nobody expects in the area in Hitech city. None of the government authorities try to take care of it even after series of complaints. No action and no resposne. Some builders and the big gaints can put whatever they want on the road and non is there to ask them, they even can dig the road to allow their temporary pipe line to cross the road. People staying in these apartments have to pass through the hell to reach home safely. If they slip somewhere they fell the pool of mud to have nice mud bath with some days of bed rest. I am not sure how we guys are managing this since 2 years.

Pain: Images look fine in MS Word, but after converting to PDF, image quality is poor.

Solution: Save your image in JPG or TIFF format and embed the image into your Word document to publish using Adobe PDF printer. PNGs are not suitable for word to PDF conversion, TIFFS work much better. Use high quality print setting while converting to PDF. Also, standardize the resolution settings of your desktop (1024*768) and the DPI setting in your screen capture software.
