Isner edges Delpo in battle of gaints

American big gun, John Isner who upset World No.1 earlier, continued his form against Delpotro too and seized him with 6-7 7-6 6-3. And Isner will play against Rafael Nadal in the finals who is chasing 26th masters title.

Two gaints serving ferociously, like first break of the match came in second set at 3-3. Isner was nervous at many times in the match, lost many simple forehands. But held his nerve at match point when delpo served a double fault which stopped the momentum for him. After that, Isner listening to the crowd and inspired. His serve was improved, clocking at 135 to 140 mph continuously with  precision. His serve was bouncing to 2 meter height when the ball reaching Delpo. It was too difficult even for Argentine gaint Del potro.
“I've been winning a lot of matches this summer. I feel like this tournament here is where I'm really starting to put it all together. I've beaten three Top 10 guys in a row. For me to do that, I have been playing well, really in pretty much all facets of my game. There's definitely some stuff I can always improve on, but I do think I'm playing well.” - John Isner

“I had my chance to beat him in the second (set). Serving for the match, I made too many errors for these kind of matches. And then in the end, he was fighting all the time. I think he deserves to win in the third set, but I missed my chance in the second set, and I'm very disappointed for that." - Juan Martin Del Potro

Nadal defeated Berdych on the other semis. This is the third time they met this year, Nadal winning all. It would be an interesting contest between Big gun Isner and man in form Rafael Nadal.
Well, I mean, it's been a long time actually. Finally, it's there. I mean, I'm really happy for it because really it's not been but a few weeks, and I was already trying for it like more than two years. It was still far, and now finally, I'm able to do so. But, yeah, that's another goal which I made. And, again, just gives me extra energy to go more, go forward." - Tomas Berdych

I finished the match playing aggressive with the forehand, with the backhand, and it's great. I think I played a very good match this afternoon against a very difficult opponent who came to this match playing very well, and I have to be very, very happy about everything." - Rafael Nadal

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…
