Rafa is at his level now

World no.5 Rafael Nadal won his 5th title this year in the 7 tournaments he played after his comeback from knee injury. If he continue his form like this, we can see great contest from top players who faces Rafa in quarters itself. The draw will be interesting at Roland Garros.

Yesterday, here at Madrid, Rafa thrashed Stan to clinch 40th clay title. Stan had literally no options or no variety to conquer Rafa. Rafa hitting winners more oftenly.

First set it is all Nadal way, Stan waited till 5th game to score game on the board, and each one hold their serves to end the set with 6-2.

Second set, Stan fought hard, it was supposed to be a tie breaker in the second set, but Nadal stopped this long process by breaking the service game and gain lead 4-3, and he served for match after holding their serves. 6-4
“Since we started playing on clay in Europe, I've realised that my drive is working again at its high level. I'm able to open the angles and play a lot of winning points. I couldn't do that in Barcelona or Monte Carlo; over here I could… It's true these last matches I have been able to reach that place where I want to be playing, the kind of play that I'm aiming for.”-Rafael Nadal

"I think he started really well. Even if I'm playing my best tennis and [am] completely fresh, it's really, really tough to beat him. It was tough for me. The ball was flying.  I didn't find out a way how to play my game [and] how to be aggressive on the court. He was also dictating the points. [Nadal’s] a lefty and puts so much topspin on his forehand, so I have to [play my] backhand always high. So I need to have the perfect timing to play a strong shot. You could see today [that] if I don't have the legs to get there, I have no chance to come back in the point. So many times [today] he hit one [or] two forehands to my backhand and I could come back." - Stanislas Wawrinka

next tournament : Rome masters.

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…
