The Force is Strong in this Notebook

Awesome Red Backlit Keys
I’m joining the dark side, only because they have the coolest notebook in the Universe. And for a lawyer like me there is no better side than the dark-side. If I had the HP Star WarsTM Special Edition notebook I would make my enemies shiver with terror with the dark-side graphics which decorate the notebook and the scary glowing red backlit keys, which would also enable me to use the dark-side’s notebook even in the dark.

The Notebook comes with a “Command Centre” containing over 1,100 images. I would go crazy with the Command Centre where I would get the option to choose among several customized Themes and Wallpapers (Wall papers can be either a Single Image or even a Customizable Slideshow). The Notebook also comes with three Star Wars Screen Savers. What makes this ‘Special Edition’ Notebook even more special is the fact that it contains almost 40 years of Star Wars history, including illustrations created before the films were made, were used to design the sets of the movies and also contains several behind-the-scenes images.
Visuals aside, I would also replace the standard windows notification sound with iconic Star Wars sounds such as R2-D2’s beeps and the swoosh lightsabers.
My days of English would be over. The HP Star WarsTM Special Edition notebook also has Aurebesh font loaded in the font library. I could send to my clients e-mails which would look like they came from the Imperial Senate.
You know how in the movie Darth Vader chokes a guy using the force, simply by clasping his finger while standing several feet away? Well, that’s how I’m going to feel when I use the optional Touch Screen Feature. I’m sure I would have all other lawyers under my thumb, once they see me using my notebook like a maestro.
I would entertain all my friends with the pre-loaded Star Wars book excerpts and movie trailers and also all the handpicked collection of independent films from Fandor, to which I would have a free one-year membership. They would, no doubt, enjoy reading/watching these on the extra wide 15-inch diagonal FHD display, and would also take pleasure listening to them because of the fantastic Audio by B&O PLAY.
Apart from the above, I would also impress chicks with the HP Star WarsTM Special Edition notebook which comes with Windows 10, 12 GB RAM, 6th generation Intel® Core™ processor, up to 1TB of additional storage space and NVIDIA GeForce Graphics.
Life in the court room is tough and I often have to rush through the hustle and bustle of lawyers. The padded sleeve fit would protect my Star WarsTM Special Edition notebook and all the important data contained therein.
I can’t wait to get my hands on the Star WarsTM Special Edition notebook so that I can become the coolest lawyer in the entire galaxy! You should get one too if you want to #AwakenYourForce

Wind Energy - The Best Renewable Source of Energy for India

Image taken from here.
India ranks fifth in the list of largest consumers of electricity, in the world. However, India is lowest ranked when it come to per capita consumption. India also ranks high in pollution.
For a country like India, which has a huge population, non-renewable energy is not an option, and definitely not a long-term option. That is the reason India desperately needs to look towards clean renewable energy sources. Our country needs to make sure that we can keep up a constant supply of electricity while keeping emissions at a minimum.
Fortunately, India is a major player in the global wind energy market, and it still has plenty of potential. This untapped potential has the ability to ensure steady growth of the Indian wind energy sector over the coming years.
I think above all, the biggest obstruction to the wind energy sector is the people’s presumptions regarding wind energy. People think wind energy is inefficient. While it is true that wind turbines are an intermittent source of energy, energy storage solutions are developing. People also think that wind energy is expensive, which is also untrue. Over the years thanks to gear-less wind turbine generators and other types of technologies, the cost of generating electricity from wind has decreased substantially.  There are now longer and lighter wind turbine blades, which have increased the efficiency and cost of wind turbines. We should also not forget the cost that other types of non-renewable have on the environment. Fossil fuels are depleting and cannot be considered a long-term source of energy. Wind turbine generators are also safe, unlike nuclear power generators. On the other hand whereas there are several incidents of people dying or getting seriously injured or impaired while working nuclear power plants or thermal power plants, there is no recorded incident of a person losing his life due to a wind turbine.
The other type of myths associated with wind turbines is that they are noisy and kill birds. Wind turbines make very little sound and there are not many incidents of bird killings caused due to these wind turbines.
Wind energy can also play a significant role in rural electrification, where usage of electricity is comparatively low. Companies with surplus profits also consider wind energy sector a reliable investment with good returns and tax benefits.
In conclusion, the rate at which wind energy technology is developing is far more exponential then that of other types of energy. The Ministry of New and Renewable Energy has also set targets for the Wind Energy sector. The sector aims to reach 60,000 MW capacities, for which it obviously needs complete support. Wind energy is the best source of clean energy in India I have no doubt that it will continue to prove itself in the future.

Mumbai - City of Greatness

Mumbai is the financial capital of India. It is the most dynamic and energetic cities, not in in India, but also in the world. My friends who come to visit, always ask me why Mumbai is #madeofgreat and I tell them the three key features of Mumbai which are:

Drive: Mumbai City is also known as the City of Dreams. At the same time it is also known as the City which Never Sleeps.  It’s true that it’s a rat race here. People run from one place to the other, looking for opportunities. The reason the people of Mumbai hope big is because Mumbai is the city where even a person who starts as a tea-seller or gardener, can make it big. It’s like Abhishek Bachchan says in ‘Bunty aur Babli’ – if Dhirubhai Ambani, Ratan Tata, and Birla had been in Lucknow/Kanpur they'd be swatting flies in Ambani General Stores, Tata Flour Mills and Birla Tobacco Stall. Bombay... gave them the recognition they deserved.

Cuffe Parade Skyline

Design: Mumbai s beautiful. If you ever visit, make it a point to see the Cuffe Parade skyline at night. The Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus is a heritage structure. A free guided tour is available between 3 to 5 p.m. Let’s not forget that you can’t leave Mumbai without seeing the Gateway of India. Also, take the ferry at Colaba and go see the Taj Mahal Palace Hotel, while you are at it. Although it's not a popular tourist destination, I recommend seeing the Bombay High Court as well. The architecture is really first-class. The Bandra–Worli Sea Link, though, comparatively new, has given the city a lot of class too.

(Image taken from here.)
Connect: Despite all the ambition and show, the city has a certain spirit. Everything and everyone in this city is connected. Mumbai is one big well-oiled machine and each person is a nut or a bolt, which helps it run. People say that Mumbai is crowded, and admittedly it is. But what they don’t notice is that the crowd is one force. There is a spirit of oneness which can only be felt, but cannot be explained. When calamity strikes, Mumbaikars come to each other’s aid, without even a second thought. This city has seen its fair share of disasters, but after everyone, the city has come out stronger and wiser. The railways and metros have connected us in terms of travel, but in terms of spirit we have always been connected, and that is what has made us the best city in the world.

It’s for these reasons that Mumbai is considered to be #made of great. In a way you can say what makes Mumbai great, is also what makes the vehicles of Tata Motors great. If you want to understand why, please go to:

Comment below and please do share why you find Mumbai to be made of great.
