David Ferrer reached his first ever Grandslam final

David Ferrer, the man who just don't come into mind when we say top tennis players. He never reached any grandslam final earlier. And today he cherished his dream of reaching Grandslam final and eventually wants to win his maiden slam at the age of 31. That would be quit impossible for him against Nadal. But anything can happen in Tennis ;)

In semi-final Ferrer thrashed Tsonga in 3 straight sets. From 0-30 down in the first game to winning the match. Ferrer showed his brilliant court coverage and not let Tsonga to get winners most of the time.
“It’s a dream for me to be in a final of a Grand Slam and Roland Garros is the one that is most important for me. It is great as well that we are both Spanish players so it’s important for the country. At the end of the day it’s sport – there are things that are more important than that – but it’s important for me and my family. And for Rafa.”- Ferrer

On the otherside, Tsonga made many unforced errors. His power game didn't work today. David was chasing everything. Ferrer was hitting deep into Tsonga baseline which forced Tsonga to play defence style and Ferrer was taking attack and eventually winning games. That's what happened yesterday.

"My opponent didn't make a lot of mistakes, unlike Roger Federer in my last match. The plan was to be aggressive and control the baseline, but he defended well and I felt like I always had to play the perfect shot to put him out of position. He was even faster than usual, destabilising me. Maybe in a few hours or a few days I will think it was a good tournament because I reached the semis, but for now I'm just disappointed." - Tsonga

And all set for all spaniard Roland Garros final on sunday. Rafa and Ferrer played 23 times and Nadal leading H2H 19-4 and last time Ferrer won was 2011 Australian Open quarter finals. And recently Ferrer lost to Nadal twice consecutively with narrow score lines. We do hope for a great final and hope Ferrer can cherish his dream or Nadal achieves a record of 8 th Roland Garros title.

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…
