Norway-1st country to become 100% electric powered

Norway will become the first country in the world to be run on electricity and will be known as the first fully electric powered nation.

Electricity outage is very common in India and many other developing countries across the world. It causes difficulties for a common man.

Everything is being automated now a days and electricity is the core foundation or base of this.

But there are some countries where government puts primary focus on energy sector and designs, formulates and implements policies and laws that give priority to electricity.

Electricity is going to be the lifeline of each one of us in the future.

Energi Norge, an industry advisory body in Norway published a 24 points plan for the switch to electricity, including providing free charging for electric cars across the country and tax exemptions for drivers.

A full conversion to electric cars would require considerable effort within the transport industry.

The body suggests that Norway will operate entirely by using clean energy by year 2050.

Hydro power is currently the source of over 96% of the nation’s electricity and there are more than 110,000 electric cars used in the country.

The country’s ministries have recently declared that no vehicle will be run on any fossil fuel after 2025.

Parking problem haunts me even in dreams

Parking is a very serious problem in major cities especially in Delhi.

You cannot park your vehicle in narrow roads and in rainy weather when the roads are choked with water and become mini swimming pool.

Wide roads look good but again one floor/one family has 3-4 cars making it very difficult to park your car.

I dreamt of such issue in my dream today morning.

I got married to a slim dusky girl. I had to leave for office and was getting ready when she asked me if I could drop her to office.

I became irritated a bit but not much as we got married recently.

I used to walk a lot in the morning and in the evening. This was a sort of passion for me and had been doing it since childhood.

I did not take car to the office due to parking problems. It can take 10-20 minutes to park the car depending on the traffic.

The office was about 15 minutes walking distance and was good for my digestion. I had my breakfast before leaving for the office and then I gulped down 2 bananas and a cup of tea after settling in the office.

But today I had to go in the car as my newlywed wife had asked with a cute smile.

With the passage of time I will have to make her understand that walking is good for health.

I hope she will understand. Otherwise I will be left with no option but to drive her every day.

Oh my God what should I do?

Suddenly I felt a jolt and everything became blurred and within seconds disappeared.

My wife had shaken me as sun had come out and shining with full smile.

I was relieved as it was only a dream to drive car to the office and not having bananas with tea in the office.

Indians don’t kiss-48 cuts in film by CBFC

Indians don’t kiss and don’t use cuss words.

But the film “Babumoshai Bandookbaaz” has used many such words and is intense with kiss scenes.

The film directed by Kushan Nandy & produced by Kiran Shyam Shroff and Ashmith Kunder has star cast-Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Chitrangada Singh, Tahir Bhasin, Bidita Bag, and Roopa Ganguly.

The movie, filled with humor and romance, is a quirky ride into the life and times of a small time contract killer, Babu, played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui.

Generally actress does not take up this issue with CBFC.

But Bengali Actress Bidita Bag has taken CBFC chief Pahlaj Nihalani after 48 cuts were ordered in the film.

This Bengali lass has put messages on social media including instagram that Indians ladkiyan are very sanskari and do not use abusive language. Is it hypocrite society?

I do not understand when we will grow up?

We listen to Bakchod shows and reality shows including Splitsvilla where these things are common. Why such serials are not banned in India?
