Nadal defeats Federer in classic

Man in form, Rafael Nadal comeback from one set down against Swiss maestro Roger Federer to reach Cincy semi-finals. In semis he is against the Tomas Berdych, who toppled Andy Murray in 3 sets.

It's definitely a good match, which Federer was expecting to have. Considering recent matches from Roger, this is confidence booster. Despite the loss, Fed is playing good tennis. Playing more agression with precision in the back hand especially. He skipped backhand slice for returning the serves, and choose flat shot.In the first set at 6-5 40-30 Federer's back hand cross court that was amazing. And the final winning shot from Rafa went out. But Federer didn't challenge that, only he knew that after the shake hands.
I’m not totally unhappy about the match. I could have played a bit better, but I think I was playing well and  tactics were working. Of course, I always have to adjust to faster courts, slower courts when I play Rafa. Plus it is him; it's the type of game I don't see very often.I'm happy with my progress along the way. Could have won tonight. Should have won tonight, who knows? But at the end, I think Rafa's confidence and the way he's playing at the moment got him through. So for me, I think it was a good step in the right direction. My mind's already totally geared into what I'm going to do tomorrow, next day, and the following day, and looking ahead at the US Open.  So I'm excited about the next sort of 10 days" - Roger Federer

I think my movement starts to be better, more intensity. I started to put more balls inside on the return, and I started to have more times control of the ball from the baseline with my forehand, something that didn't happen the first set and a half.But the match was there. It was very close. He had a good chance in the second. I think I played a good few points in important moments." - Rafael Nadal

Novak Djokovic, the man in the pursuit of golden masters crown lost to the Ace gun, John Isner. It was great performance from Isner against the inspired World No.1 Novak to win all the 9 atp master events once. Isner will play against Delpo in the semis.

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…
