Half Girl friend - Few thoughts


The sound of wall clock made me aware that I was supposed to sleep. It was 3'O clock in the late night. And no sign of dizziness in the mind but, more mixed feelings about Riya and Madhav. Feeling happy for them.
InnerVoice : seriously dude, are you happy for a fiction character?
Me: it's not about the character, it is the feel of the character. (Batman voice)
The amazing drama starts slowly with the introduction of hero(Madhav Jha) and heroine(Riya ) taking their admissions at St. Stephen's degree college, Delhi. They were both proved their worth for taking them in sports quota. They played fantastic basket ball as Madhav was a state level player. That's where they met for the first time. Riya was rich and simple. Madhav was weak in speaking english. It's not an easy task to find out the lifetime girl. Madhav sticked to her and had so much fun in talking, kissing and with the provocation of friends he tried for make love to her. She was upset and marrited to the Indo-British Rohan who was earning huge amounts at very young age. What's the point of fiction love story if they won't end Up saying, "happily lives ever after". Wanna know how that happened? Read it now. It is a good read.
In India, earning money is an indicator for success and happiness.
 Chetan discusses these type of myths in India in his books with attractive scene narraton.
When she told that she had lung cancer but she didn't smoke, an impulsive arrogant response came in my mind about the smokers who don't bother about the environment while they smoke. And the conversation with Madhav's mother gave another thoughtful response about the mother that why the hell she talked like that.
Bill gates stuff looked like a funny chapter at the beginning, but it had revealed the emotional elevation of Madhav's first achievement at his home after he rejected the lucrative package offered by a multi-national bank.
People succeed at the rate of one page in book, one song in movie. But in reality that won't happen.
We must face the reality. If the success in books and movies were not that short, we won't read and we won't be getting a few ounces of so called inspiration. I observed many people including me ofcourse getting inspired and...
Yes, only getting inspired. There is no effort at later stages. No hard work, no seriousness and nothing.
One thing that keeps you in right track is your hard work. There is no shortcut for it.
I love to read his books (only fiction books, I'm yet to complete his 'What young India wants'). Because his narration make me visualize what's exactly happening there.

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…
