Nadal one match away to regain World No.1 ranking

Rafael Nadal sneaked through Fognini's fabulous tennis. He was one game away from the loss when he was at 1-4 in the second set. Rafa fight back which he usually do, and win the second set with 6-4 and third with 6-1. And Nadal increased the count to 25 wins in the hard court. He is still the man to beat in hard courts this year. He will play Tomas Berdych who edges the big giant John Isner in the quarters. If Rafa win tomorrow, he regain the top spot after so many days. Last time he was ranked no.1 on 3rd July 2011.
"t's something that doesn't create more pressure for me. It's something that already happened in the past. If that happens again, it will be good, it will be special for me, but we'll seeI am going to have a very tough opponent in front of me. In the end, it's another match. True, it's a little bit more special for the circumstances, but nothing else. It's the semi-final match of a big tournament, I am going to try to be competitive and try to play my best tennis. If not, I am going to have no chance to be through. It is not the moment to think about No. 1; it is the moment to think about Berdych" - Rafael Nadal

On the other side, Novak Djokovic, three time China Open champion continuing his top game. The Serbian thrashed Sam Querry in the quarters with 6-1, 6-2. Novak will play against the beautiful single hand back hand owner, Richard Gasquet.
To get free points on your serve is necessary and needed. I played a big server tonight. I managed to read his serve well and managed to always make him play an extra shot. I think that was a perfect performance overall. Good combination between serving efficiently and returning basically every serve back. He was always one of the most talented players in our generation. I think in the last two years he's been playing the tennis of his life. In terms of consistency, he's up there. We're expecting a tough match for both of us. There is no question about it. I need to be aggressive. I know what I need to do against him. Hopefully it's going to work."- Novak Djokovic

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…

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…
