The Ascent of Man

The USP for the Maruti Omni – the New, Improved Version – is that it has (gasps of awe) a cup-holder on the dashboard. Which speaks volumes about the level of technological innovation in the rest of the car. Bill Bryson, where are you?!

Ah, the marvels of technological innovation. What will they think of next - cigarette lighter outlets, maybe?

Ah, but they will find takers.

My colleagues prefer a Christmas hamper--a basket holding a cake, a bottle of marmalade, a coffee mug, and some sachets of tea/coffee--to a monetary bonus that's twice the value.
