Top Bollywood Movies | Mid 2018
I am sure every one of us is aware of the release of Race 3. The speed with which it RACED (pun intended) to 100 crores made me think, are good Bollywood movies no longer appreciated?
But then, another news about RAAZI reaching 200 crores reinstated my faith in Humanity.
Despite mindless movies like Race 3, Bollywood has brought out some great movies that can appeal to your love for great cinema.
Unfortunately, some of these haven't had the best of promotions and it may be possible you never even heard about them.
So here is a list of Top Bollywood Movies of 2018 (released till mid-2018) that you may have missed.

Aviation Facts
We all love traveling by air, don't we!

Airplanes have made traveling between far of places so fast and convenient.

However, there are a few things/facts that you may have observed during every flight and wondered why this is so.

In this post, I aim to answer some of the basic queries we usually have when flying by stating some fun aviation facts.

Do Airplanes have a reverse gear? You might have wondered about it quite a bit.

Most planes reverse back before taxiing to the runway.

But do they do that on their own or are helped by something? The answer, in short, is, NO. The jet engine airplanes do not have a reverse gear. They are pushed back by a short vehicle.

For more details, READ MY DEDICATED ARTICLE ON THIS.





Why are window shades kept open during Takeoff and Landing? Have you all not wondered why every time the plane is about to take off or land, the air hostess checks if the window shades are open or not. They a…

Delhi Pollution - Is Delhi slowly becoming Inhabitable?

Delhi Air Pollution

On 13th June 2018, Wednesday, I landed in Delhi after a short trip to Bangalore.

And what I saw shocked and scared me to the core!
I couldn't help but write this article to express my displeasure and concern over the deteriorating conditions in DELHI, the national capital of India.

On 13th June 2018, I was greeted by a thick layer of dust and pollution which made breathing very difficult.
One could literally feel the dust entering through the nose and into the mouth as well as the lungs.

The cab driver, who later dropped me home, informed that it had been like this for 2 days now. And even as of today, 15th June 20118, I find no substantial respite.

If you Google Search "Delhi Pollution", this is what you get as on 15th June 2018.






Not a New Problem, But...! For people who are permanent residents of Delhi, this problem is nothing new for them.

Thanks to the location of Delhi, as well as rapidly growing population, it has always been plagued by polluti…

Bogibeel Bridge

The Indian Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi, will be inaugurating the Bogibeel Bridge later this year. This bridge is a Road-Rail Bridge and is the longest bridge being made in India till now.

Whats even more interesting is the fact that it is also the second largest Road-Rail bridge in Asia.
But before we talk more about this bridge, you might be wondering - what is a Road-Rail bridge.

Let's talk about that first!





Road-Rail Bridge A Road-Rail bridge, as the name literally suggests, is a bridge which allows both rail passage as well as road passage.

In simpler terms, we can say that a Road-Rail bridge is a multi-function bridge. It has 2 levels. On one level there is a rail track which allows trains to pass. And the other level has roads for regular vehicular travels.

Such types of bridges are made where it is not possible to create separate parallel bridges for both roads and train tracks.





Bogibeel Bridge, Assam The Bogibeel bridge is a Road-Rail bridge which w…

Revamped Tatkal & Non-Tatkal ticket booking Rules | Indian Railways
The Indian Railways has introduced a new set of rules for online booking of train tickets - both Tatkal and Non-Tatkal.

These new rules are aimed to strengthen the online ticketing process of the Indian Railways. It also aims to bring greater transparency in all the transactions involved in the booking of the ticket.

To enhance the ticket booking process and smoothen out all the transactions, the government has taken some new and much-needed steps. 

Earlier people could not book tickets due to a huge amount of traffic on the IRCTC website, making it slower and losing the track. But now various time caps and booking limits will improve the speed and streamline the process.





The Updated Rules
Now, only 6 tickets can be booked in a month from one user id. This number gets extended to 12 if Aadhaar id is verified.


A user can have only one active login from one id at one point of time, be it incognito window or another brows…

Image
Delhi - Mumbai Expressway
Ever since the BJP led government was formed in India in 2014, a major focus has been on the creation of roads and infrastructure.

There is absolutely no doubt in the fact that a great road and transportation infrastructure plays a significant role in the economic growth of a country.

Look at our neighbor China for example. They have created a solid infrastructure of road and rail transportation to support their growing economy.

After laying foundations for many such projects, the Transport Ministry seems to have now set its sight on the Delhi Mumbai Route. Both Delhi and Mumbai are significant and very important cities of India.

Where Delhi is the national capital and the center of power, Mumbai is considered to be the financial capital of India where major Business Tycoons reside.

And of course, how can we forget our favorite film stars who also have made Mumbai their home.

Being a seaside city with a bustling crowd and an amazing nightlife, Mumbai is alwa…
