Met Department Prediction goes Wrong Again September 01, 2016 10:11

The Met department on Wednesday predicted that Hyderabad would receive few spells of rain or thundershowers at some areas on August 31. But the situation was quiet different. The city received heavy to very heavy rainfall with many localities reporting more than 9 cm of rain. With the Met department once again failing to predict the weather correctly, GHMC and HMWS & SB were left unprepared to tackle Wednesday’s flood.A weather official meanwhile said, “IMD issued a report to the state government and on its website about Telangana receiving heavy to very heavy rains for the next two days, which also includes Hyderabad.”The local bureau added, “The cyclonic circulation over Andhra Pradesh coast off west-central Bay of Bengal continues to persist. This system has given good monsoon rains over parts of Telangana, including Hyderabad. Now this system is expected to move in a westerly direction.” “Moreover, a north-south trough is expected to develop and run from north Bihar up to Telangana. Owing to this phenomenon, moderate to heavy monsoon rains are expected to occur in Hyderabad and the adjoining areas over the next 48 hours. The intensity of the rain is expected to increase. During the last 24 hours, the city has recorded 17.6 mm of monsoon showers. In fact, flash flooding and water- Water Board executive director T.V.

Maruti buyers still purchase those models which don't include safety features August 31, 2016 11:48

The Global NCAP has conducted a series of tests for different Indian car models based on their safety features and the result clearly depicted that many of Indian car models don't possess safety features. It is also true that a very few Indian car buyers purchase the cars keeping the safety features in mind.This statement is clearly supported by the data which is revealed by Maruti, one of the eminent automobile manufacturers in India. The company offers airbags and anti-lock brakes in 11 models, either bundled as a part of the standard kit or as a paid option. The company also claimed that only 37% of its customers buy cars with safety tech. Maruti also depicted that its high selling models like Brezza, Baleno and the S-Cross possess airbags and ABS as standard and these models are also high demanding from customers' end.On the other hand, Alto contributes 16 % of the company's sale but only 5% of this model possess driver airbag. But the scenario is a little bit of different for WagonR. For WagnonR, 15% of the car models opt for dual airbags. It is also true that altogether WagonR and Alto contribute 30% of the company's sale. So, we can conclude that low rate of safety adoption hardly matters the sales of the company.But it's our prime duty to educate the customers about the safety tech and how this tech can save thousands of lives so that in future, buyers don't skip out on safety tech to save a few thousands.

“It’s Time to Celebrate”: Pullela Gopichand August 31, 2016 11:06

Coach Pullela Gopichand is happiest as his student P.V. Sindhu won Silver medal at Rio Olympics. Much like her fellow trainees at the Gopichand Academy, the national chief coach is a father figure to Sindhu.Sindhu, at nine, was the youngest when Gopichand started off his academy in 2004. Twelve years have passed and little has changed between the two be it her training schedules or adhering to the coach’s words.“I start my mornings training Sindhu. And the best thing about her is that in these last 12 years, she never bargained. If her ask her to come for training at 4.15, she will never ask why so early?,” said Gopichand here on Tuesday.“So, her silver is emotionally attached to me. We have enjoyed working hard together all these days for the Olympics. And now its time to celebrate,” added the 42-year-old, who admitted that he relived his playing days as Sindhu made it to the Rio 2016 final.Asked what was next at the Olympics after Saina Nehwal’s London bronze medal and now Sindhu’s silver, Gopichand said: “I only planned thus far, I didn’t plan after this. I don’t know. The entire focus was on the Olympics. I hope India have many more stars in time to come.”“There is no motivation. I just see potential and set a target,” said Gopi when asked about the driving force behind producing Olympians on a regular basis now.Gopichand, who also trained Saina before she moved out to Bengaluru, refused to compare his proteges.“Both are fantastic players. Sindhu has a great work ethic, while Saina is aggressive and has great fighting spirit. They are completely different but good in their own ways,” he pointed out.
