Thoughts on today's India vs Australia cricket match

In today cricket match between Australia and India, I have different thoughts until the end of the match. The thoughts just popped up in my mind as each ball was being bowled.

What is the necessity to be calm in tense situations?
Stonis thinks he can defend Boomrah over and score in other's overs. Stonis wants to keep the game to the last over. But on the other hand, Kohli wanted to end the game before going to last over, as there was no effective/experienced death over bowler left out of their quota of 10 overs. The balance of tension is maintained by the players. Both showed the calmness on the field. But after Stonis, there is no one left to show it.



No need for overconfidence.
If we are overconfident, we are prone to make mistakes often. Stonis thought of hitting Shankar/ Jadhav easily. And he ended up being plumbed in front of the stumps. 

Don't think there is only one problem left to solve in your life.
Stonis thinks only Bumrah can be the problem to their victory. But Shami and Shankar showed their skill to their potential. Similarly, there is not only one problem that can settle our lives to peace, but there will be a number of such things will come and we need to face it.

Don't underestimate the capability of others.
Stonis, the Aussie all-rounder faced Bumrah defensively in last over of his spell(48th over). He might be having the thought of attacking other bowlers. But see my brother, they are also much better death over bowlers. Hence, we should not be having the idea of others can be easily targettable.

There is always a second chance.
Vijay Shankar gave 13 runs in his first over. Kohli forgets him and rotates the ball among all other bowlers. But finally, Vijay had the ball in the last over. And he just gave the best. Similarly, even if we lose everything in the first go, there is always a second chance to make things right or to make things better.

PS: these are personal opinions of the author and there is no need to be coherent with the player views. comment below on what you are thinking about the match today.

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…
