Novak survives to set clash with the Bull, Rafa

Wawrinka played really great yesterday. It was his first grandslam semi-final match and he is absoulutely feeling no nervous at any second. Instead he was believing in himself and hitting hard as possible as he couldand putting so much pressure on Novak's game. One thing I've observed in Wawrinka game is that, the back hand slice that was really improved and looked like Federer's backhand slice which put the ball in left corner and opens the court on the right side for a winner. Back hand to back hand and Forehand to forehand that's how the match went in the Flushing Meadows yesterday.
That's how I see my life in general and my tennis career.After the match in the Australian Open a lot of people were thinking it's going to be tough for me to lose that kind of match, but in the end I took all the positives from the match and I'm here now playing the semi-final. Today I lost again, but I'm back in the Top 10 and I'm playing my best tennis. I need to do the same.The only thing that I can see, that's everything I'm doing outside the match, on the practice courts, on my life in general, is the good things and I'm on the right way. I just need to continue to practise hard and to try to get more victories like I did these two weeks. It's the last Grand Slam of the year, so it's always a different challenge,You always want to make a great result. It's a big city, quite an amazing city. It's an emotional time here and I think when you play well you enjoy much more because you play on a big court, a big stadium in front of a lot of people, and that's the way to enjoy the tournament" - Stanislas Wawrinka

It was 21 min game , players were not giving up easily in the final set. 12 Deuces, I repeat 12 deuces. Very very close game and finally Stan won that. Crowd loved that, gave applause to the players and Players were too happy and had some fun after the game.

Clearly Stan would have won yesterday with his aggressive and confident approach, but Novak stay hard and got the things done at the end. It was really bad start for Novak in the first set, it was not his fault, Stan made the things like that. Followed by tie break set win for Novak. It was their 7th tie break and Novak winning 6 of them. And stan striked back, winning the third. Djoker was 4-1 lead in the second set and finished quickly to have the decider, and Novak was better in the final one.
I just tried to hang on and fight and be mentally tough and believe all the way through I can actually win. And I sincerely believed that as the match progresses and longer it goes, I felt I have maybe that physical edge over him, and that I also, being in particularly these kind of matches and situations, playing on a big stage in semi-finals, maybe that experience could give me a little bit more of confidence on the court mentally." - Novak Djokovic

And on the other semis, as expected, Rafa thrashed Richard Gasquet in straight sets, but Richard broke Nadal service game. Last time Nadal service was broken on Aug 7. Almost 70+ service games were unbroken. So both the single handed players are out and two handed back hand giants set for Monday final.

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…
