How 3 hours of rain created Havoc in Chandigarh (Tricity)

Mostly, we make lots of claims about the progress of India; however, in reality, we still lack many basic things. Our cities are least prepared for the rains and it was evident from just 3 hours of rain in the tri-city area of Chandigarh. In many parts of the Chandigarh, water enters the homes and vehicle can be seen floating the water at many prime locations. Mostly, we imagine Chandigarh as a modern town which is designed well to face all such troubles. However, unplanned growth in and around the Chandigarh city is creating lots of problem for its residents. When such a well-planned city is not prepared for just 3 hours of rain, then what we can expect from other unplanned cities of India.

In India, urban planning is very poor and we don't modulate our increasing cities. Our government doesn't stop illegal and unauthorized developments around the cities which sometimes include construction on the catchment areas of rivers and lakes. Due to this reason, every year flooding in Indian cities is becoming a common story. I think nobody must have forgotten about the heavy rains and floods in the one of the biggest city of India, Chennai.  I hope that we will start learning from our mistakes and create better cities which are capable of sustaining heavy rains.

Below, you can watch some of the video of Chandigarh city after the rain which clearly shows that how badly we need to change our city planning.

What is Stock Market? Let's Understand it

When I was young, I always used to ask myself that why some people remain so mad about Stock Market and what actually is a Stock Market? Why we suddenly see people making billions of dollars in months or losing billions of dollars in days? Therefore, through this article I am trying to make it simple for others to understand what basically is Stock Market and how it functions. The most basic work of any stock market is to facilitate trading in various company stocks and derivatives.

Stock Market provides an easy option in front of companies to borrow money from people and financial institutions by offering company stocks in return to them. Any Stock is listed on Stock Market at particular face value plus premium value which is determined by various agencies affiliated with Stock Market. For example if a stock has face value of Rs 10 and premium value of Rs 100 then this stock will be listed at Rs 110 on stock market and will be available to people at this price.

Face value is termed a…

On second day, I visited famous Ross Island (where British settled in Adaman Nicobar for first time, now under Indian Navy Control), Viper Island (used as prison and hanging prisoners) and Northwest Coral Island to watch live coral.
