A year in China

I got an oppurtunity to work for a year long tenure in mysterious country called China.it was a roller coaster ride for me, as indians we know china by its cheap products ,you pick up any branded shoes ,shirts like reebok nike u will see "Made in china"label in it ,china is suppose to manufacturing hub of asia almost 60% products are been manufactured here.
well come to the point as i landed in china,was impresed by its airport and cleaniness, as we are on our way we stop to take dinner,our chinese counterpart order the dinner ,to my suprise the food in not like chinese stuff that we used to get it here,it was rather plane and you have to sit in particular mannerism on table .After sleepless night we reach our destiny called shougunag.

FOOD : chinese cuisine is know to be the best in the world ,generally food cook out here is on venigar and use high flame .its totally differnet from what we get here in india,there are many joint spread around cities even u can get small stall "tapris" in and around busstop only, but the menu is in chinese and you are adviced to take chinese person along with you , generally they serve you hot water and i guess even cold drink and beer are not serverd chilled.
The wheat flour you get get here is generally fine wheat "maida",you have to be expert to search good quality wheat n get it cushed to get taste of indian wheat, In rice you can have variety to choose from,and you get very little cereals and pulses whichu get in india.
Spices -You can get almost all spices that u get in india,atleast salt and chillipowder are avaliable evrey were.
Tea - the tea leafes you get here is totally different ,here people use to have a bottle full of hot water and put two or three tea leafs in that n use to repalce water when it get cold .you can get variety of tea leafs depending on you taste of flavour ,there are few joint spl for tea.
Vegetables- you can get almost all vegetable that u get in india and the palce where i live is called as vegetable city,you can pick up vegetable from malls around or from local market.
Fruits - you can have seasonal fruits and some palce u can get even mangoes in offseason ,u can get apple throgh out the season some fruits are bit expensive like grapes ,banana etc..
Nonveg - this palce is heaven for those who r nonveg you can variety from worms to crocodile,spl in summer time peopel have fun with kabas and draught beer on the street, fish cooke d here is fantastic,almost on every saturady we use to have fish in chiense style.
Bakery products:the cake and other bakery product you get here are fantastic.,spl the way they do icing on cake.
Beer and Cig:here beer is damn cheap alost rs 12 a bottle max and have god range ,ou can even get multinationla brand here,other breavage are quite expensive,cig is also cheap out here and have variety to choose from.
PEOPLE : people whom i met are very nice,humble and pro indian and have good sense of humour, well its hard to find a typical chinese person that we imagine in india who have thin moucthe and thin bread.they have good body and are strong ,from face it's hard to guess there age and generally they don't show emotions on there face or in there voice,girls are pretty and what ever they wear look good on them,n have a remarkable figure,had i been chinese i would have marry someone down there.and when they see foreigner they wants to talk ,wants to be friends with you ,in one such incidents while shopping around in a mall i met a aunti ,she was a big fan of Big B and saw his movie DON and even have poster on her wall and lover of indian movie,she approach me help me in shoping and even in getting a free gift and latter she ask me to have few indian movie.
in second incident while i was sitting around in park and having cig and was not in best of my mood a couble approached me and start talking to me and seems to be confused about my look (pakky or indian ),i guess b'cous of my gotty beared,they where keen to learn english so that they have a edge over others for jobs,they also wants to go USA to yearn like most of indians.
In a third incident i was having a beer with my friends,few guys sitting around called me and start pracing me and eager to know what i am doing and how is india and some other stuff ,i share a beer with them exchange few things and latter they said let me know if i need any sort of help.

well it take time to mould people and when mould is ready you can make as much product u want.

CULTURE : well its suprise that they don't believe in god or rather don't know,i found a common idol who they treat as goodluck charm, they celebrate spring festival at large and some festival in october i guess its caled as autumn festival,during these festival they gather in there family house and drink wine and celebrate . it's hard to find chinese peopel in there traditional dress almost everyone wear western outfit even down in village

Formula 1 ........ F1

Formula One began in 1946 with the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile's (FIA's) standardisation of rules. A World Drivers' Championship followed in 1950. The F1 world championship season consists of a series of races, known as Grands Prix, held usually on purpose-built circuits, and in a few cases on closed city streets. The results of each race are combined to determine two annual World Championships, one for drivers and one for constructors


Race Procedure : The pit lane opens thirty minutes before the start of a race, during which time drivers may drive around the track as much as they like.

At -10:00 the grid is cleared of everyone except team mechanics, race marshals, and drivers
At -5 tyres after taking it out of tyre warmer are attached to the cars , Refuelling must also be finished by that time.
At-1:00Engines must be running by ; at 15 seconds to the start all personnel must be clear of the track.


The race is started by five red lights, The lights illuminate one at a time, left to right, in one-second intervals, and then go out simultaneously after an interval of between four and seven seconds. When the lights go out, the race begins.



Scoring :
The Driver's and Constructor's Championships are decided by points, which are awarded according to the place in which a driver classifies at each grand prix. To receive points a racer need not finish the race, but at least 90% of the winner's race distance must be completed. Therefore, it is possible for a driver to receive some points even though he retired before the end of the race. In that case the scoring is based on the distance completed in comparison to other drivers.
1st place 10 points
2nd place 8 points
3rd place 6 points
4th place 5 points



F1 Cars


Engines :There have been many different types of engines; normally aspirated, supercharged and turbocharged, ranging from straight-4 to H16, with displacements from 1.5 litres to 4.5 litres. The maximum power achieved in the history of the series was around 1,200 bhp .All cars have the engine located between the driver and the rear axle.

Steering wheel :The wheel can be used to alter traction control settings, change gears, apply rev limiter, adjust fuel air mix, change brake pressure and call the radio. Data such as rpm, laptimes, speed and gear is displayed on an LCD screen.

Fuel :The fuel used in F1 cars is fairly similar to ordinary gasoline Blends are tuned for maximum performance in given weather conditions or different circuits. During the period when teams were limited to a specific volume of fuel during a race, exotic high-density fuel blends were used which were actually heavier than water, since the energy content of a fuel depends on its mass density.

Tyres :By regulation, the tyres feature a minimum of four grooves in themThey can be no wider than 355 mm and 380 mm at the front and rear respectively. Unlike the fuel, the tyres bear only a superficial resemblance to a normal road tyre. Whereas a roadcar tyre has a useful life of up to 80,000 km, in 2005, a tyre is built to last just one race distance (a little over 300 km). This is the result of a drive to maximize the road-holding ability, leading to the use of very soft compounds (to ensure that the tyre surface conforms to the road surface as closely as possible).

Brakes:Disc brakes consist of a rotor and caliper at each wheel. Expensive carbon-carbon (the same material used on the Space Shuttle) composite rotors -are used instead of steel or cast iron because of their superior frictional, thermal, and anti-warping properties, as well as significant weight savings. These brakes are designed and manufactured to work in extreme temperatures, up to 1,000 degrees Celsius. Regulations specify this control has to be manual, not electronic. An average F1 car can decelerate from 100-0 km/h (62-0 mph) in about 17 metres .

Spanish League .......La liga




In April 1927 Jose Maria Acha, a director at Arenas Club de Getxo, first proposed the idea of a national league in Spain. After much debate about the size of the league and who would take part, the Real Federación Española de Fútbol eventually agreed on the ten teams who would form the first La Liga in 1928. FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, Athletic Bilbao, Real Sociedad, Arenas Club de Getxo and Real Unión were all selected as previous winners of the Copa del Rey. Atlético Madrid, RCD Espanyol and CE Europa qualified as Copa del Rey runners-up and Racing Santander qualified through a knockout competition. Only three of the founding clubs, Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and Athletic Bilbao

Real Madrid




Football was introduced to Madrid by the professors and students of the Institución Libre de Enseñanza. They included several Oxbridge graduates. In 1895 they founded the club Football Sky, playing on Sunday mornings at Moncloa. In 1900 this club split into two different clubs New Foot-Ball de Madrid and Club Español de Madrid. The president of the latter club was Julián Palacios. In 1902 the latter club split again, resulting in the formation of Sociedad Madrid FC on March 6, 1902. The first president was Juan Padrós Rubió; the first secretary was Manuel Mendía; and the first treasurer was José de Gorostizaga. Juan Padrós Rubió would be later succeeded by his brother, Carlos Padrós from Spain. In 1905, only three years after its foundation, Madrid FC already won its first major title. The team won the first of four consecutive Copa del Rey - titles (at that time the only statewide competition). In 1920 the club's name was changed into Real Madrid after the King grants the title of Real (Royal) to the club.
success journey
In addition to their domestic success, Real Madrid's reputation as a major club was established by their outstanding record in the
European Cup. To date have they have been crowned champions of Europe a record nine times. Alfredo Di Stéfano, Ferenc Puskás and other famous players helped the club win the European Cup five times in a row between 1956 and 1960, which included the memorable 7-3 Hampden Park final against Eintracht Frankfurt in 1960. The club won for a sixth time in 1966, defeating Partizan Belgrade 2-1 in the final with a team composed entirely of nationally-born players, a first in the competition. They were also runners-up in 1962, 1964 and 1981. Winning the competition five consecutive times saw Real permanently awarded the original cup and earning the right to wear the UEFA badge of honour. They have also won the UEFA Cup twice and were twice runners-up in the European Cup Winners Cup.

On 22 October 1899 Joan Gamper placed an advert in Los Deportes declaring his wish to form a football club. A positive response resulted in a meeting at the Gimnasio Sole on November 29. Eleven players attended: Gualteri Wild, Lluís d'Ossó, Bartomeu Terradas, Otto Kunzle, Otto Maier, Enric Ducal, Pere Cabot, Josep Llobet, John Parsons, and William Parsons. As a result Foot-Ball Club Barcelona was born. Several other Spanish football clubs, most notably Real Madrid and Athletic Bilbao, also had British founders, and as a result they initially adopted English-style names.
FC Barcelona quickly emerged as one of the leading clubs both
Catalonia and Spain as they competed in both the Campionat de Catalunya and the Copa del Rey. In 1901 they won their first trophy when they won the Copa Macaya and in 1902 they also played in the first Copa del Rey final, losing 2-1 to Club Vizcaya.

The club was established in March 5, 1919 and officially approved in March 18, 1919, with Octavio Augusto Milego Díaz as its first president; incidentally the presidency was decided by a coin toss. The club played its first competitive match away from home on 21 May 1919 against Valencia Gimnástico, and lost the match 1-0.
2005: Fans at Estadio Mestalla.
Valencia CF moved into the Mestalla stadium in 1923, having played its home matches at the Algirós ground since
7 December 1919. The first match at Mestalla pitted the home side against Castellón Castalia and ended a 0-0 draw. In another match the day after, Valencia won against the same opposition 1-0. Valencia CF won the Regional Championship in 1923, and was eligible to play in the domestic Copa del Rey cup competition for the first time in its history.

English Premier League

The league held its first season in 1992–93 and was originally composed of 22 clubs. The first ever Premiership goal was scored by Brian Deane of Sheffield United in a 2–1 win against Manchester United. The Premier League is operated as a corporation that is owned by the 20 member clubs. Each club is considered a shareholder with one vote each on such issues as rule changes and contracts. The clubs elect a Chairman, Chief Executive, and Board of Directors to oversee the daily operations of the league. The Football Association is not directly involved in the day-to-day operations of the Premier League, but has veto power as a special shareholder during the election of the Chairman and Chief Executive and when new rules are adopted by the league.

There are 20 clubs in the Premier League. During the course of a season (which lasts from August to May) each club plays the others twice, once at their home stadium and once at that of their opponents for a total of 38 games for each club, with a total of 380 games in each season. Teams receive three points for a win and one point for a draw. No points are awarded for a loss. Teams are ranked by total points, then goal difference and then goals scored. At the end of each season, the club with the most points is crowned as champion. The three lowest placed teams are relegated into the Football League Championship and the top two teams from the Championship, together with the winner of play-offs involving the third to sixth placed Championship clubs, are promoted in their place.
