When I started watching I thought it was just a Formula 1 race movie. But it is not. The film was based on the real events. And it was about the rivalry between two passionate car drivers Niki Lauda and James Hunt in Formula 1 racing. Hans Zimmer made his mark on the movie with outstanding background score.
The rivalry between Niki Lauda and James Hunt on the track was truly inspirational. Both started their career with difficulties. Niki stood against parents' wish to see himself as a businessman. And he loaned from bank and payed to team to become a member of BRM. but with his expertise on the car mechanics and driving capabilities, he signed with Ferrari. And on the other side, James Hunt was blessed with the team he has who bought one Formula 1 car, Hesketh. But later he moved to McLaren in the dramatic conditions.
The weather conditions were terrible in German just before the race begun and the circuit had many turns, and it was very hard to drive. Since, it was last in the year, and crucial they went for voting whether to continue race or not. And with the support from Hunt, the race begun. Niki Lauda, who resisted to stop the race met with accident there and burnt partially.
While he was in the hospital, he recovered by watching his rival victories. That made him fast recovery than possible. He was passionate about the game and at the same time he was ready to prove under extremely difficult situations. With that inspiration, he got into the track and stood 4th in his comeback race, but wins every heart out there. We should appreciate Erlene, wife of Niki. She stood with Niki at the worst situations he ever faced. Hatsoff to her.
Clapping moments
    • Hans Zimmer soundtracks are awesome, and the music hold your nerve to see what happened.
    • James hunt beat a reporter when he commented on Niki's face.
    • Niki exits from Japanese Grand prix where James Hunt emerges as a champion with determined and daring driving to win the championship
    • The conversations between Niki and Hunt, especially the last one.
One way or the other, movies based on real life incidents are really makes you think at difficult times.
What do you say?

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…
