Yosemite - Pristine, Magneficient and Inspiring

Yosemite is pristine, looks like it is untouched except for the roads. Find a rock for yourself to sit on and you will lose track of time looking into wilderness. As said by Einstein, look deep into nature and then you will understand everything. It can enlighten your soul. Like meditation, your thoughts walk into the greens and leave the weight in your brain somewhere deep in the woods here.

Trekking in Yosemite in one experience that you keep telling to your friends for days. The tall oak and pine trees on either sides of the trail path are majestic and welcome you as if they love visitors. Not sure if the giant sequoias touch the clouds but they can definitely intimidate anybody with their size.

There are many spots to visit in Yosemite National park, my personal favorite is Glacier Point. A view of Yosemite waterfalls from Glacier point is below. Trust me, this place is worth a visit.



Why Yosemite? It's got dozens of incomparable meadows and more than a hundred lakes, plus waterfalls as tall as a 200-story building, trees the size of rocket ships, mountains the size of ... mountains. Yosemite in size is definitely bigger than handful of european countries.

Why Hike to Taft Point?  It can do funny things to your stomach. It's Glacier Point without vistas of Yosemite Valley, especially El Capitan. Guaranteed to help you answer the question: Am I afraid of heights or not? And an excellent mildly sadistic people-watching spot, for seeing how your fellow hikers privately answer the same question.



We have spent only a couple of days at Yosemite and hence this little blog.

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…
