Sikh grandfather risks life for love

Today's crumb comes to us from the Times of India. A 62-year-old man who wishes to remain nameless recently arrived in Australia from India to visit his children and his 18-month-old granddaughter. They were at Wentworthville station in Sydney where he was buying a train ticket. He did not know it, but for weather reasons the platform is slightly slanted toward the tracks, This caused his grandchild's untended buggy to roll away, as shown here, until it crashed down onto the tracks.
Instantly the grandfather ran after the baby. He jumped down onto the track bed and lifted the pram (with his granddaughter in it) up to the waiting arms of her Mom and grandmother. Then he noticed a freight train racing toward him.
He was unable to climb back up on the platform. The train blew its horn to warn him, and a security camera caught him running for his life down the tracks until he found a spot just wide enough to squeeze aside as the train zoomed by. Railroad inspector Paul Reynolds summed up the incident this way: "Baby very lucky. Grandfather just as lucky." The platform will soon be regraded to make it completely flat.

The caution came after a 24-year-old gunman opened fire at two US military centres in Tennessee yesterday, killing four marines in a rampage that officials said was being probed as an act of “domestic terrorism.” The shooter was identified by the FBI as Mohammod Youssuf Abdulazeez.

France takes history route to link up with Sikhs

New Delhi, July 18
India and France share long-standing strategic and diplomatic ties, which the latter now wants to make stronger by going beyond these parameters and moving towards cultural relationship by connecting dots from the past and shared history.
France will in September 2016 commemorate historic ties it has had with Punjab by unveiling a statue of Maharaja Ranjit Singh along with a statue of General Jean-François Allard, who served as the military adviser to the king of Punjab from 1822 till his death in 1839 while defending Punjab on an official assignment.
Allard was among the battery of Frenchmen serving in the army of the Maharaja and rose to become the key military adviser to the king, in the process helping him modernise his army to take on the British.
Gen Allard took major part in the creation and training of the Fauj-i-khas, the “special” or “royal” brigade of the Maharaja. Tropezian Jean-François Allard, an officer in the Napoleon’s army, was exiled in India in 1822, but his military knowledge made him the chief commander of the troops of Maharaja Ranjit Singh.

Hang Out with Honda !

Hang out with the Honda Jazz at the Buddh International Circuit was a great fun. It was a double excitement for all of us as we were invited to drive the new Honda Jazz and that too, at the India’s Formula one racing tracks at BIC.

The biggest product comeback of 2015 looked quite impressive. The features of the new car were explained to us by none other than the V Channel VJ, UD. We came to know that it had a fuel  efficient 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel engine along with the potent 1.2-litre petrol mill. The new hatch will have the City's 6-speed manual transmission and will be paired with the 1.5-litre i-DTEC diesel.

The fuel efficiency of the Honda Jazz with a diesel engine is said to be 27.3 Km/l where as Honda claims that the petrol CVT delivers 19 Km/l, while mileage claims on the manual are at 18.7 Km/l. Honda has made certain changes in the dimensions of the car which is slightly longer by 55 mm and wheelbase marginally up by 30 mm.

We were offered the two versions of Honda Jazz i.e. the Automatic one & the manual. The combination of Honda Jazz as well the BIC had filled the utmost energy in us. In the meantime, BIC team explained us about the risk factors of the Formula one Track & instructed us with the do’s and don’t. They requested us to follow the guidelines very strictly as they had over 50 cams at various locations to keep an eye on us.

We selected our model  & soon we were driving Honda Jazz at the Formula one Racing arena at the Buddh International circuit at Greater Noida. We had the comfort, space, technology, power, mileage and innovation in our hands. We were almost flying on the tracks at various speed levels to enjoy the ride. It was a great fun. It was amazing.

We had a chat with Mr Katsushi Inoue, President & CEO of Honda Cars India Ltd. Even he was very eager to explain us about the new technology. Please view a small video covering the entire event with Honda Jazz at the Buddh International Circuit.
