Nadal extended his ATP head to head with 22-15 today. One thing everyone waited eagerly from these players is that they match the type of play, unlike in Fedal rivalry single hand back hand versus double-handed backhand. Novak and Rafa are named for their long baseline rallies. An average of 7 shots for rally, ranging from Ace to 54 shot rally played in the game today.
It was very, very emotional. Probably only my team knows how much it means for me.Playing against Novak always is a very special feeling. Probably nobody brings my game to that limit like Novak did." - Rafael Nadal

And total of 53 unforced errors from World No.1. Novak is really need to improve in his serve. Novak was trying to shoot every time in the rally and Nadal was chasing everything. That was good chance to take advantage when at 40-0 in the third set. Novak failed to convert at-least one of them. Nadal went on winning that game and final set was in Rafa pockets with 6-1.
He was too good. He definitely deserved to win this match today and this trophy. It’s obviously disappointing to lose a match like this, but again it was a huge privilege and honour to be fighting for this trophy.” - Novak Djokovic

It was great run for Rafa, winning all hard court matches till date this year and won the challenger winning the hard court events Roger cup, Cincinnati and US Open, and bags $1 million in his pocket additional to $2.6 million prize money.

Next tournament Davis Cup..

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…

God - God Men - Hinduism

God - God Men ------ The title looks something odd. But there is a lot to think about it. Let me begin the article by putting some questions that are lingering in my mind for many years. Question: 1 Whether the existence of GOD has been discussed in Hinduism? If discussed, by whom it was done? And whether the discussion is carried forward in a sensible manner? Question :2 Whether the GOD mentioned in the age-old books of Hindus personified? Question :3 Is the essence of Hinduism wrongly propagated? If yes why? And by whom? If not, the reasons thereof for the present scenario. Question: 4 What does the entity God Men? And where does it come from? Question: 5 Is the varnas mentioned in the great books were correctly carried out and interpreted? “Ohh……! hey please stop it.” ------- you may exclaim in boredom and distress. Though these are irrelevant to present way of life, there may be some questions often attack our mind as I have experienced. Situations may be relevant or not, the present generati…

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.

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…
