MUMBAI: Burying your problems and worries now seems possible with the help of a time capsule. Designed by two third-year engineering students of St Francis Institute of Technology, Borivli, as part of their college fest, Iris 2012, the idea behind the project is to invite people's suggestions on things they want to see in 10 years.

"A leather-bound book will be kept on the day of the festival for comments. We will place the book along with pictures and other memorable items in the time capsule and bury it," said Shelton Nazareth, one of the designers.

The capsule will be unearthed in 2022 at the same fest by the students. "We will place a Google Maps picture and an environmental report of Mumbai from 2012, photos of prominent locations of Mumbai among other things," said Prathamesh Chodankar. The capsule will have a report on the present and future expectations for the city that will be written by three of the institute's professors. The event will be held at the institute on February 26.
