Novak, Roger inspired to give more.



It's been a great tournament here at London O2 arena. Barclays world tour finals, the last tournament for 2012 season got a tremendous ending with the presence of Nole and Roger and their elegant tennis yesterday.

Roger, who is interested in taking the domination from the beginning of the match has done good job by breaking the first serve in the second game. But the other side of the net, Djokovic, who is a slow started and smart actor on the field ( always shows signs of tired man when he loses point ) got into the set again by getting two crucial points against six time champion. And Federer showed his free style , attacking and aggressive gaming to save two set points against world no.1 when he is serving at 5-4. And the first set lead to tie breaker as the momentum is swinging between back and forth between Roger and Novak. In tie break, it was Novak who took the control of the game and got the first set. It was Roger's another incredible passing shot against Novak in the tie breaker at 6-5.

In the second set, Roger came back strongly by breaking the Djoker first game. And Federer got the momentum and got the situation to stretch the match to 3 sets, but nole made it again to save the points and game. And Novak got the match after a good passing shot.

It was great season for the both players and a great match to end the season. Novak defended his year ending ranking no.1 for the straight second year, and Roger who is at 32 showed some inspirational game play during this year, and he is ready to give it more.. :)

Roger said..

I think it’s the love for the game, the appreciation I get from the crowds, I guess playing for records from time to time, playing against different types of generations and playing styles,” he said. “The game has evolved sort of over the last 13-14 years I’ve been on tour. It’s changed quite a bit ever since.
“I think you need inspiration, motivation from different angles to keep you going because it isn’t that simple just to wake up every morning and go for another travel around the world, another practice, all these other things, another fitness workout, another stretch. It’s always nice, but you need to have some success and you need to have the right reasons why you’re doing it. I think I’ve always been able to do that and I really enjoy myself out on the court.”

Novak said..
“I was just trying to hang in there,” said Djokovic, on being 0-3 down in the first set. “It's not the first time that Roger [has] started against me so well. I've experienced before his aggression, really trying to put his mark on the match. I didn't know in which direction the match would really go, but I tried to convince myself that I would make a turnaround and I will fight.

That's all for the tennis this year. Hope we have great tennis with Nadal coming out from injury.

India - Democracy - Bureaucracy

India a nation with strong Democracy. There has been a well-established democracy in India. This democracy is responsible for the happy and free-living of people in India. Now you people may get a doubt, what has happened to our democracy now. And what is the reason why I’m revolving around the term repeatedly? These would be answered automatically if you go through this article. One of the reasons why India fought for the freedom is to achieve democracy and to end bureaucracy. Before Independence India was run by bureaucrats. And the apex house sitting in Britain would make laws and rules based on the feedback and reports given by the bureaucrats administering India. Due to this Indians suffered a lot and there raised the zeal for self-rule. Moreover, the reports of bureaucrats would always be favoring the interests of Britain and they never bothered about the common people. So to represent the problems faced by the common man and also to solve them we adopted democracy after Indepe…

Atal Innovation Mission - Top 30 Ideas

There is no less of innovation in the young minds of India. To encourage that innovation, AIM (Atal Innovation Mission) has been set up under the NITI Ayog wing. And Atal Tinkering Labs are spread across the country to enable the innovation in the students. After many rounds, top 30 Ideas have been listed here.


Out of these 30 best ideas, a few caught my senses strongly.
Recycling wastewater from automobile garages We often give a water service for our bike/car monthly or weekly. We tend to saw how our vehicle got a new look after servicing. But, the students of  "Jnana Prabodhini Navnagar Vidyala, Nigdi, Pune, Maharashtra" thought something else. They are interested in the wastewater which can be recycled. What an Idea sir ji!
Smart Tap Just like how there is a measurement for electricity, mobile data that we are consuming, there will be a smart tap that measures water coming through that tap. The best part is that the tap also purifies the water. This idea came from the st…

Controlled water management in India

Proper management of water is important in every country and especially in populated countries like India. It is high time that we need to measure our water usage in our homes. Putting a SMART TAP at the water tank would be a necessity in the near future.  Imagine a digital and eco-friendly village. IOT ( internet of things ) is part of their daily life. And their smart tap is used to measure the water usage in the home. And it is connected to the IOT, continuously sends some data related to water flow and quality of water etc.. The smart tap also measures the water level based on the pressure at the tap. And gives you reminders about the water filling. The village officer can analyze the water usage of each house in that village and he can give some incentives/rewards to the less average water usage. In the other post, we have discussed the Aadhaar based dustbins, giving incentives to the villagers for cleanliness. The incentive-based schemes are not the first time to the Govt. or t…
