I am writing blog nearly after 6 months. And, It’s young brigade from IPL Season 8 whose performances encouraged me to get back to blogging again. There were many fabulous and destructing performances during the Season by superstar players like Gayle, Warner, Rahane, McCullum, Nehra, Bravo. But This time it was the Young brigade which caught my eyes to the most. They won matches almost single handedly for their teams.
First on the list is Shreyas Iyer who is consistently leading the way for Delhi Daredevils. He is the leading run-getter for Delhi Daredevils so far, Shreyas Iyer’s confidence and his ability to score at a quick pace will serve him well in future.
Sanju Samson is second on list. He is playing IPL from last 3 seasons, but this is the time to move on for him as MS Dhoni has announced retirement from Test Cricket. He may the choice for selectors as Wicket-Keeper Batsman in Test Cricket.
Deepak Hooda, slow left arm bowler, but he expressed himself more in the last overs stroke play with tremendous ability to hit sixes with ease. He played the major role in winning first two matches for Rajasthan Royals.
Sarfaraz Khan, oh man ! He is almost 3 and half years younger than me. He is hitting Australian bowler for boundaries. He is player to watch out in future.
I was about to finish the list, but there came another stroke-play from the Paltan of Mumbai Indians, He is Hardik Pandya. He smashed 3 sixes in 19th over to take his team home with 3 balls to spare against Chennai Superkings.
The preservation of freedom, is not the task of soldiers alone. The whole nation has to be strong. We all have to work in our respective spheres with the same dedication, the same zeal & the same determination which inspired & motivated the warrior on the battle front. And this has to be shown not by mere words, but by actual deeds.” – Lal Bahadur Shastri
Remembering one of the most self-effacing & simple but Tall Leaders of our times – Former Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri on his birth anniversary.
Today on 16th May 2014, India have witnessed historical General Elections 2014 results. India gave Clear majority to BJP with more seats than the required 272 seats. It means they have gave clear majority to PM candidate of NDA Narendra Modi who led the Indian state of Gujarat to Development heights & set up the Gujarat model. Now, the people across the Country voted him on the basis of his Gujarat model. And Narendra Modi will be the next Prime Minister of India.
It was a clear ‘Modi Wave’ or May I say the Modi Tsunami in the General Elections result 2014. I personally had predicted that NDA will get 300 – 310 seats but It was clearly a miracle or the trust of people in Narendra Modi that they gave clear majority to any single party (BJP) after 30 years. And they won all seats in many states like NCT of Delhi, Gujarat, Rajasthan and many more states. And they won historical 73 seats in UP which has the most number of constituencies in India (80).
In the end I must say that It is not the win of only Modi, BJP or NDA, Its the win of People of India.
My greetings to India & the scientist community & My engineer buddies on National Technology Day, marking the anniversary of the Pokhran Tests of 1998. Tests of 1998 were a victory of technology & the nation’s willpower. Our scientists worked very hard to develop Nuclear Programme.
Fifteen years ago India laid a claim to the nuclear powers’ club membership by conducting nuclear tests at Pokhran, on May 11, 1998. The day, which proved the technical prowess of Indian scientists, is marked as the National Technology Day to inspire young minds to achieve high goals and excel at innovations.
Science City marked the day with a slew of activities, including lectures by eminent scientists and provided a platform to robotics enthusiasts. More than 150 engineering students from across the state participated.
