Mumbai 26/11 : Slap On Indian Security System November 30, 2008

Multiple sites in the Indian city of Mumbai were attacked with bombs and gunfire in a coordinated terror attack on November 26, 2008. On November 29, the death toll had risen to over 195, including at least 22 foreigners. Over 300 injuries were reported. The last gunmen were cleared out of the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel on Saturday morning, November 29, as firefighters continued work putting out blazes on the first few stories.

blast

I m not writing this blog to let everyone know that how many have been died n injured in this terrorist acitivity. Because, its been very well known by every Indian citizen and they can count the numbers with their every breath they take. Mumbai atack.. is yet anaother shame on the Indian security sytem. Terrorist numbers were ranging fro 10-20 members and they were so gutsy that they marched inside these multi star hotels and shattered every smile those people were sharing with their meal. Its not an issue whether an Indian died inthe attack or the foriegner, but the issue is that were those 20 members so powerful that they can get over our security systems..???

xinsrc_5921105271122703124626

They planned everything from Pakistan and then marched to India through ships n boats. Firstly, moving to porbandar and then to Mumbai and finally given the shape to what they have planned.

Now, the worst part is this… what were our Navy force was doing? They are there to protect the costal regions and have to sight every single small happening or mishappening on the coast. They never saw any happening ? why.? was it not their responsibility or they were just sleeping around the coast. The very next moment when those terrorist arrived over here in India.. few fisherman reported to the nearest police station but, was their any desired step taken up by the police.? what else a common man can do..they can  just help the local police by whatever relevant information they have.

They just never took it seriously.. and th result is what has shaken the nation.! When we will turn down the pages we will jut keep on thinking the causes and the loop holes which led to such a mis happening which were never expected. Still efforts woud be missing . The problem is , we never learnt from our mistakes. Comitting mistakes is a human nature but when u dn’t learn from them its ur irresponsibilty and the worst part,We are always great at it.  We are said to have the largest army in the world, but just to catch these few mutants we were compelled to use all our resources, whether its from army, to local police , or ATS or NSG. MAny hostages those were under the threat whole night, and people who were having themselves or their relatives down  under their guns were just expecting our best to let them free n breath under the free India. “INDIA Free from terrorism”.

                                        4087

I m not disappreciating the efforts made by Indian forces to saveguard the people down there . Infact, i m proud of them. The way they have fought to thier last breath without giving any thought to their mind abt thier life or death, serving their nation at their best. I salute all the martyer’s and soliders who were fighting for their nations’s pride. So that we can lively freely and can move with a smile on our face.

                                         

But, if we would have given a little care n attention would such an happening really  took place.? We  are busy in ourelves fighting for you are North Indian , i m MARATHi.. does we really care that we are INDIAN. Is’t we any more proud to be called an INDIAN. infront of the world we always show ourselves as a nation of unity, where so many religions, caste na ll prevals . But, what from inside.? what we are..? its just not happenning.  In order, to fight with such a big problem we got to stand of our own as a nation. And not as a marathi or a north Indian or a bihari,because it wil always divide us.

                                                            photo

Their are lot of political parties and poilitical leaders showing their sympathy and respect to those martyr’s . But the problem is this is anyone gonna always keep them in our memories.

Our beloved politicians, said that ” ki bade bade shehron main aisi choti baatien aksar ho jati hain”.(such happneings sometimes do take place in big cities)   Now, can anyone tell does it make any sense.??  Is this really such asmall happening tha our home minister can quote this way on it.! It shows how serious are our poiliticians on this issue, and their interest to make our nation free from this hazard. Now watch this, is this what our home minister called a “choti choti baatien”..(small happening).

The problem is not all about terrorism, the problem is still somwehere realted to us. Do we still work for NAtion’s progress.? 

IF we really want our NAtion to be free from such an further activity from any terrorist front we got to stand in unity serving for the nation n not for the state. And yes offcourse, our defence should be treated more precisely and importance should be given on their trainings and they should b given the latest weapon with some authority to use them.

  If such things are not gonna change, the question like this will always be there leaving an reason to arugue n question with the goverment  on the security reasons in India.

I m strongly with all the fighters who really bother to serve the Nation and my this blog is just to make u guys aware of what i feel might be the loop holes.

I dn’t wana get this slap ever again.!

 

 

Happening on the North Pole : global warming in term of melting ice June 28, 2008

Global warming has become a important issue today..and more of a worry.! Lot of scientist across the world.. is searching for all the information regarding the global warming.   
The North Pole and the predictions regarding the north pole.. is a big worry for the scientist and as well as for the people around the world.
It seems our worst fears may come true. For the first time in the human history, ice is on course to disappear entirely from the North Pole this year.
Its expected that “North Pole may be ice free for the first time this summer”.
Firsthand, observations and satellite images show that the immediate area around the geographic North Pole is now mostly annual, or first-year, ice—thin new ice that forms each year during the winter freeze.
Such ice is much more tends to melt during the summer month, in comparison to perennial, thick and dense ice, that has lasted through multiple cycles of thawing and freezing.
IF it happens, it raises the prospect of the Arctic nations being able to exploit the valuable oil and mineral deposits below these a bed which have until now been impossible to extract because of the thick sea ice above.


The normally think ice formed over many years at the pole has been blown away  and replaced by huge swathes of thinner ice formed over a single year. The rate of melting is faster than last year, when there was an all time record loss of summer sea ice at Arctic.

Scientists are particularly interested in the North and South Poles because they are expected to show the most dramatic effects of global warming.

Models predict that the regions will see temperature increases roughly three times as quickly as the rest of the globe because of an effect known as ice albedo feedback, which occurs when highly reflective ice gives way to dark water.

The water absorbs much more of the sun’s energy, increasing temperatures and causing further ice melting.

Each summer the sea ice melts. But the last year, the loss of sea ice was so extensive that much of the Arctic Ocean became open water, with the water ice boundary coming just 1126.5 km away from the North Pole.


This means that about 70% of the sea ice present this spring was single year ice formed over last winter. Scientists predicts that much of the ice will melt this summer causing a global warming.

Here’s where the extent of sea ice in the Arctic stands now in relation to the average tracked between 1979 and 2000, and the remarkable ice loss in 2007:


Thus, all the data’s clearly figure out the extending ice on the poles.. and the knocking of global warming with the meting of ice on these poles. This clearly results, in the temperature change and thus effecting the climatic conditions as well..!!!!


well.. lets wait and see when we can go through  the clear image of this warming. Its expected not to reach by before 2013 to 2030.!

Thus, the global warming is not so far. And this can be easily visible in these , videos describing all the aspects of global warming and the melting of ice… on the North Pole.

 

Suffering Africa from corrupted policies by big guns: U.S. Rules the chart..! June 26, 2008

Well.. today who is unaware of one of the most richest part of the earth which is so surmounted with “minerals” and real good mineral wealth. This nation is always among the lime light and is always a issue to be spoken about n always catches the eyes of whole world including some true dominating power of the world like USA, UK , Russia..and many more.
And this lovely nation with so much of the mineral wealth and all.. is “AFRICA”.
Today, everyone speaks about this nation, its sufferings, its problems, and every minute single happening which later turn into  the huge pandemic for this nation.
The small ignite of diseases have turned into a giant fire.. and almost the whole part of the nation is suffering from it.. including women to child and even few who have not yet not seen the world.. and is still  to open their eyes.
And just imagine, what we are doing..??? we are just talking about the problems of this nation.. rather than taking the initiatives. Even if the inititaives are  been taken they r just restricted to paper work. are they really implemented..??
For this we need to question MR. George Bush…!!
As they promise to be the most working nation for betterment of this part of the world. Well.. but actually there are very few people who are truly.. aware of the real facts. The working of the policies of these nations and there implementation. But the methodology still says, that the U.S. is a generous provider of the aids to Africa. methodology also refers that Africa is miss-managed and corrupt and hence absorb more aid. 
The facts are otherwise. Total annual U.S. aid for all of Africa is about $3 billion. About $1 billion pays for emergency food aid, of which half is for transport. About $1.5 billion is for “technical cooperation,” essentially salaries of U.S. consultants. Only about $500 million a year — less than $1 per African — finances clinics, schools, food production, roads, power, Internet connectivity, safe drinking water, sanitation, family planning and lifesaving health interventions to fight malaria, AIDS and other diseases.
If the administration were more than modestly interested in helping Africa, it could learn about the huge gains made possible by Blair’s plan to provide about $50 billion a year to Africa by 2010 — with the U.S. kicking in $15 billion to $20 billion. With that money, Africa could control killer diseases, triple food production and cut hunger, and improve transportation and communications.

The new aid would not involve guesswork or be a blank check. The administration’s claim that budget restraints prevent more spending on Africa is the most cynical of its contentions.

The president has cut taxes by more than $200 billion a year, with the wealthiest Americans the chief beneficiaries, and has raised military spending by $200 billion a year. But when $20 billion is needed to keep the poorest of the poor in Africa alive and put the continent’s economies on a path toward long-term growth, there’s no money available.

Is this what we are doing to help Africa..!! Is that the measures are been taken by some big guns like U.S and U.K..!!  There market policies and there zeal to rule the world.. have always come over there efforts. And its been clearly.. shown in there efforts and strategies. They are just taking this nation to show the world that they are so helpful to everyone. Making a image like of saint..!!  but reality is something of which very few are aware of. And i guess should everyone know.
The millions of Africans who die young and the hundreds of millions going hungry are not victims of fate. They are the consequences of U.S. policy.

This post is for the social cause to make the people aware of the facts and polcies that these  nations adopt over the suffering nation. They should be helped.. they need our help… they never asked for the luxurious life… they have just looked for a meal of their day..!! can’t we even gave them that..!!

wake up…stop molesting Africa by our strategies and policies. don’t play with the future of millions of people… who are suffering already from so much of causes.!

The most effected market with the change in the technology is the mobile market.

Bar, flips, touch and what’s next in the mobile tech.? Mobile phone technology is seeing a revolution is design, value addition and solutions it can provide to users with new technologies being integrated in cellphones.

The latest in 3G, security technologies along with the largest display ever of wimax..

i-Phones knocking at Indian Market.. GenX Phone.!! June 20, 2008

India is really making some real progress in the field of technology. The new generation phone i.e., “the i-phones” clearly proved the point that Indian market and people both are really looking for some fine technology with some best services to them. But the question of the launching of the i-phones and moreover their unlock version is a big question in the mind of the people framing all the sectors of the society.

Apple is launching the i-phones in different editions. In India 8GB version is among the pick of all. Apple will launch the Apple i Phones in partnership with telecom major Vodafone. The Indian placed market would get to see the 8GB version of the Apple iphone that is said to be  combine Wi-Fi capabilities with a powerful online music store, TV feeds, email clients and map based location guide.

The Apple iphone was expected to be priced at 28,000 previously. But recently, the rate of the i phones has decreased very instantly thus resulting in the variation in the cost of the i phone which is yet to be fixed in Indian market exactly. It may vary  to a good sum..!

Apple would look at the response to this Apple iPhone edition before launching the higher end Apple iPhone 16GB edition. Apple had earlier said that it aimed to bring the Apple iPhone to Asia within 2008. The i phones are expected to hit the Indian market on the Divali season… gifting iphones as the new tool to the tech progress of India. Though being so much of use, there are few pre- assumptions on the unlocking and functioning of the i-phones.

8Gb model of iphone where in the price has been dropped from $599 to $264.85. Lets see what pricing would be fixed when iphones would be sold in india and will they be unlocked version is another big question.

The issue of unlocking the Apple iPhone would surface in India as well. Unlocking the Apple iPhone has been a hot topic ever since its global launch. Unlocking the iPhone without losing call quality, free open source hacker kits like AppTapp and the like were subjects of discussion all around. The only way Indian mobile users can use an iPhone in India as of now is by unlocking it.

Here you can check some means to unlock the iphones. As, evryone one’s the unlocking of iphones has become much of an issue and a discuss theme rather than the launching of iphones. so, it has become very important to give the serious node at it.!

http://iphoneindia.gyanin.com/tag/unlock-iphone-in-india/

In India basically the iphones will be launched by vodafone and Airtel. They have decided to make this nxt geenration phone familiar among the common people, and is working hard to gave the best result out of it.!

 

Hybrid CaRs ReAdy To hit the INDIAN roads… CIvIc’s The First.!!! June 19, 2008

The last few weeks has been abuzz with a slew of launches in the auto industry in India. Two themes have clearly emerged as the next wave—lower price and eco-friendliness. The answer to eco-friendliness has been pretty dominated by the hybrid vehicles displayed at the Auto Expo, New Delhi, this year by many players. Following this, of course, have been a barrage of articles on why hybrids is ‘the technology’ for India and its impact has been discussed and debated in various forums. This effort is to assess the potential economic and environmental impact of hybrids and whether this could well be just another bright spot among the numerous efforts in this direction.

Hybrid vehicles run on electricity and another fuel, which could be petrol, diesel or bio-fuel. The car owner has the option to drive the car using either electricity or petrol and can easily switch from one to another. These vehicles help reduce emissions by generating power from an electric motor, burning less fuel for each mile travelled.

With rising concerns about environmental pollution and global warming, everyone is trying to do their bit towards correcting the same. Honda Motor Co, with the launch of their Civic Hybrid, had contributed their bit too. Now, the company has launched the vehicle in the Indian market too. On 18th June 2008, Japanese car maker Honda Motor Co unveiled its first hybrid vehicle in India, when it launched its sedan Civic, already available in 32 other countries of the world. Honda Civic Hybrid has been equipped with both a petrol engine and an electric battery.

Honda Civic Hybrid The car will be imported in India, as a completely built unit (CBU), at the import duty of 104 per cent. This is the reason why its launch price will be a steep Rs 21.5 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The CBU will be imported from Japan, where the hybrid car is being produced for the entire global market. As per Mr Masahiro Takedagawa, President and CEO – Honda Siel Cars India, the company is exploring the option of import the engine and components to India and then assembling the car, as a semi-knocked down unit.

If the company is able to establish that in the near future, the cost of the car will come down significantly, since a semi-knocked down attracts much less duty. According to the officials of Honda Motor Co, the main aim behind the launch of the hybrid car in India is not the generation of high volumes. Rather, the company wants to let people be aware of its technology and commitment to the environment. The company has already imported 130 cars in India and expects the sales to reach around 300 during the year.


As far as the possibility of making Civic Hybrid in India is concerned, Mr Masahiro Takedagawa has ruled out the same. The reason for this was cited as technical constraints, which do not allow the car to be made anywhere in the world, except Japan. Honda Civic Hybrid will be offered with a 1.3 liter petrol engine. The engine and the motor will function together, right from the time of the start of the car to acceleration. However, once the car reached a high speed, it will automatically go on engine.

In the case where the car seems to be idling, usually being driven at 40-50 km per hour, the petrol engine will automatically stop working. The car will, rather, starts operating on battery on its own, thereby leading to saving of fuel as well as maximum fuel efficiency. According to the company officials, the fuel efficiency of Honda Civic Hybrid is somewhere around 19 km per liter. This is quite higher compared to petrol-based model of Honda Civic, which gives a mileage of around 15 km per liter.
