Little’s Law in Ministry of Magic Apparating Chimneys

What is Little’s Law?

It states that the Number of people in a queue in steady state condition is proportional to the Steady state time spent by a person in the system. Here the proportional constant is called the arrival rate.(Looks pretty simple! The more the number of people in the queue then the time spent in the system will be larger).

Ok. What is this?? Is this a technical blog?

Hmm.. No. This was related to a random thought I had recently.

So I hope that the readers have read or seen Harry Potter. So in that the Ministry of Magic’s employees come to office daily apparating through a lot of chimneys. If you have not then it is simple that apparating is a teleportation mechanism. So I was wondering what will happen suppose that the number of employees coming in peak traffic is so high he never reached office!!

Suppose Mr.X decides to install this system in his office in real life. He leaves from home. But then the traffic is so high he will be stuck in queue waiting in line to come to office. When he must have saw the movie he must have thought that,”Wah! What an idea! Now nobody will say that they were late because of traffic!!. And by God’s grace his communication system is effective enough. Otherwise he will be lost in the transmission forever!! 😀

Even so then, he will say,”Darn it! I was stuck in this stupid Little today! ” or even comical dialogue will be when he returns home late he would say,”Honey!! I got littled! ”  😉 😛



Pseudo rule of the Chief Council of Wishwashers(CCW)

In a far far kingdom filled with beautiful dears, mischievous monkeys, scenic trees and what not there lived a few thousand people. The kingdom flourished in its prosperity and regions far far away knew about the greatness about it.

In the kingdom there existed a group of people called the Chief Council of Wishwashers or hereby referred to as CCW. This is a kingdom that is present among lots of rivers from India- Godavari,Pampa, Tamiraparani, Sindhu, Ganga and also it controls lot of activities that happen on the great mountains of ‘The Himalaya’.

The council is governed by a lot of minions who roam in their flowy blue robes and are governed centrally by a head who generally has a very funny name. The council has a general idea that they rule the forest kingdom in which they live in because they bully the residents. The residents need to rely on the council because of the lengthy procedures they impose for their daily nutritional requirements.The residents live in the kingdom for a limited period of time during which the nutritional queries are natural to come up in their period of stay.

The fact is that these minions dont rule this world. They are like the British. They came for trade but slowly infiltrating into the general world and ruining the life of the innocent originals. Having to engage in any sort of the business with them is entering into the training house of dragons. Each minion is a fiery untamed fire breathing creature and it doesnt matter to whom you approach, one is going to get burnt.

How do people then survive these dragons during their stay here?? It is inevitable!! One must suffer for their pleasurable stay in the wonderful kingdom by controlling their emotions arising out of their engagements with the CCW or else just blog like me under pseudo-names. 😛 😛
