Is it alert? or some application?

     It is very strange for me, but it looks like that I have became a special blogger in the eyes of some of my readers and they think that my blog must be read immediately after publishing the post on it. Yes it is a case with my other blog, on which I published a series of posts based on my travel experience. On that blog I noticed bunch of readers gathered on my blog within a minute after publishing a post on the blog. Within that time, that post was not even visible on feed reader of many blog aggregator websites. Neither that minute was sufficient for me to copy the link of that post and copy the title and some text and publish it on social websites like facebook, google plus etc.

     So I was just watching the number and location of readers etc. on reader tracking application and let that bunch first read my post completely. After their reading was over, then only I posted the link and description of that post on facebook and google plus etc.

     Now that travel series is over, but still there are eager readers who came on that blog within just a minute after publishing post on that blog. I don't know whether the readers use google alerts for my blog or is there any application informing them about my new post? Whatever it is but I think those eager readers are some special readers and not all the bloggers do have such readers.

     But yes if there is any application for this, then please let me know about it.

Help the Cyclist without arms to raise funds for participating in Asian Para-Cycling Championship 2017 through "migme"

     It is an incredible story of resilience and determination of Super Singh for whom nothing seems to be impossible in-spite of his disabilities and now it is time for us to help him accomplish his dreams of participating in Asian Para-Cycling Championship 2017. Now "migme" is raising funds on its social entertainment platform for Super Singh. 

     This is the story of an athlete Super Singh, who didn’t let any obstacle get in the way of his dream. He left no stone upturned to cross all impediments and emerge as a winner.

     He was born without hands, but his fascination for cycling started when he saw his sister cycling in front of him as a child. Despite his family warning him not to cycle, he still went ahead, sneaking out at night to practice balancing in the dark and narrow by lanes of his locality. Today he cycles more than 25 KM a day. What a determination!

     Jagwinder Singh (popularly known as Super Singh), a resident from Patran, a small village near Patiala in India came into the spotlight when he participated in the 25 KM Para-boys Challenge at the Chandigarh State Cycling Championship. Where he bagged the Gold Medal!

     Jagwinder and his parents didn’t have the required funds to buy him a cycle, so he took up teaching art to children at a local school, saved up whatever money he earned and bought himself a bike.

     Super Singh is a fitness freak and makes it a point to hit the gym for two hours every day. This helps him with his practice. He leads a very active lifestyle in-spite of his shortcomings. Now he dreams to win the Asian Para-Cycling Championship 2017 and bring glory to his country, India. For this race he needs a new customized bicycle which would cost USD 6690 (INR 450,000) to be trained in time. The bicycle will be customized to ensure that he’s able to ride it competitively.

     In order to help him raise funds, migme, a global social entertainment company, has started a campaign through which its users, as well as the general public, can contribute to his cycle to help him achieve his dream. Supporters can buy virtual gifts and send them to Super Singh’s profile on migme (his mig id is: supersinghofficial). The funds accumulated through these gifts will be given to Super Singh so that he can buy his cycle, so please help Super Singh achieve his dreams, and donate today!

     You can read more about the campaign here which tells you how you can give funds/gifts to Super Singh.

     Excellence is never an accident as proved by Jagwinder Singh! Anyone in his place would have conceded defeat right at the beginning, but not him. He really deserves your help.

Headache

     I was reading an e-book from last three days because I wanted to review it. The e-book appeared to be quite decorative. The entire e-book was decorated with beautiful eye catching illustrations on its every page. The font was good and readable without changing any setting. But what about the content of the book?

     While reading the first three chapters I was totally confused about the characters, but after fourth chapter the plot of the story and characters in it became quite clear. Then at some points I thought, that the story is taking the grip, but after some time the text lost its grip. Still I tried to read that, but the story was too flat filled with many conversations and very less descriptions. The characters were talking more than taking any actions, thus loosing the drama in the story. There were nothing to read between the lines, there was nothing to reflect in the mind of the reader. It was only flat content written by an author in south Indian English. Still I tried to read it for the three days, but could not able to do that after reading some pages. Then I just went over some more pages reading it with fast forward style, but what I found was the story was circling and coming again to the same point and there was nothing much for the reader from my point of view though the story was claimed to be about a sensitive subject. Clearly that book was nothing for me but just the pages filled with text for passing time. Finally I decided to cancel writing the review of that book. Because if I would have written it, I would have not given a single star as its rating.

     Now a days just the availability of the internet has become a big opportunity to all writers to express themselves and to publish their e-books. So many e-books are available in market, but hardly few of them are having quality of the content. So reading e-books has became a headache for me, because I find hardly any content which satisfies me. That's all! Thanks!

The test drive

     I always like to take information about new cars. Just now I have heard about this new car ‘Datsun redi-GO’. The company describes it as, “Fun. Freedom. Confidence. The ultimate Urban Cross - Datsun redi-GO - the capability of a crossover with the convenience of a hatchback.”

     After reading about this car’s features on its website what appealed to me most is its design of exterior and interior, the facilities provided for driving this car comfortably and its efficient performance giving features. Though these three things appealed to me most, this car is having other features also which differentiates it from other cars.  

     This car’s smooth, sleek, dynamic exterior look with its heightened stance and the high ground clearance appealed to me at first. Other important feature is its interior, which is designed for the family. This car is provided with seating for five along with space for luggage. The dashboard with its digital tachometer provides a modern touch and gives information about fuel. The audio system and its power windows are the additional features.

     It is having some features which are helpful in making driving more comfortable. Its 5 - speed manual transmission for the smooth control, with precise shifting for a more seamless response is one of those feature. The other features are its computer display showing instantaneous and average mileage, distance to empty, fuel remaining, etc. with the easy-to-read shift indicator which shows the ideal time to shift for maximum efficiency and performance. Also, its superior air conditioner which has been optimized for Indian weather conditions, ensures that the passengers are comfortable inside, irrespective of the outside temperatures.

     What appealed to me more is its 799cc engine providing a peppy response and an impressive fuel economy of 25.17 km/L. The other feature is its i-SAT (Intelligent Spark Automated Technology) Engine giving a knocking-free, smooth performance. What I liked most is its small turning radius - just a 4.7-metre turning radius for a full turn.

     All these above mentioned, easy to use features makes me want to take this unique car out for a spin. For that I would like to test it in Mumbai, because Mumbai is such a place in India, which is having intricate network of highways and flyovers as well as small roads all over the city. These roads are sometimes plain and smooth, but sometimes they are patchy, full of pits and dust. These roads are sometimes empty, but sometimes they are full of people and other vehicles which causes traffic jam. So in this city I can test this car for its multiple aspects.

     I would like to test this car and enjoy it’s wider view. I will test it on a patchy road to test its ground clearance. I would like to check whether the space in the car is enough or not. I would like to test the effectiveness of its computerized features for the fuel efficiency and car’s performance. I would like to test its 5-speed manual transmission and check how much smooth control it gives. I will also test this car for its small turning radius.

     Provided with all these features the Datsun redi-GO will surely help me beat my urban driving blues with its overall performance.

Note - Since this post is based on information published on the website of ‘Datsun redi-GO,’ readers are suggested to take all the necessary information about this vehicle and check its all details before using it.

     For unearthing young talent across the length and breadth of India, GAIL (India) Limited and National Yuva Cooperative Society (NYCS) launched a grassroots athletics program GAIL Indian Speedstar on the 22nd of March 2016 at the Constitution Club of India, New Delhi. This focused grassroots program aims to create a pool of athletes with knack which will possibly bring honor for India in track events at the highest echelon of sporting events - the Olympics 2020/2024.

     This program is launched to identify, select and nurture the hidden talent in athletes. For that the targeted age group is 11 - 17 years in 100m, 200m and 800m track events across.

     Eminent sportspersons like P.T Usha, Rachita Mistry, Anuradha Biswal & Kavita Raut have been appointed in the selection committee to support the selections and guide in coaching camps. Their role is important for creating the selection criteria or for the GAIL-Indian Speedstar program, and for developing the training plan and module for the selected athletes at the National Level.

     In its first year, initial trials were conducted at 55 districts across 10 states in which more than 25,000 children participated, out of which 850 children made it to the State level. Now selected children from some states have qualified for the National level trials. Here you can see the video of Treasa sharing her winning moment who qualified for National level trial.



     The other videos of participants and state representatives who also shared their enthusiasm for these trials.






     The first State level camp and trial was organized on 27-28th of February in Jaipur where out of 60 participants 4 have qualified for the next level. The state trials were held in Odisha - 14, Delhi - 28, Kerala - 28 & Jharkhand - 4 selections each which was followed by Maharashtra and Gujarat in the last week  of April. The shortlisted children will participate in the National camp and further selection which is scheduled to be held in May 2016 at New Delhi. Shortlisted athletes from state trials will attend an intensive national level camp. At the conclusion of the coaching camp, final trials will be held. Winners will be selected based on the qualification criteria and their potential. The winners will be given extensive training throughout the year. The top 9 athletes will then be provided with a world class coaching for over a period of 5 years with an ultimate objective of one of these athletes to represent India at the Olympics.

     More information is available on this website. This is a good opportunity for Indian children. So now what are you waiting for? Encourage your children to show their hidden talent through this program and grab the best opportunity.
