hacked. Years of injustice and misbehaviour and bloodshed from Kashmir in India by Pakistan. Big numbers of Indian websites including government are being hacked by your cyberbrothers," the message left by the hackers on the page, along with a picture of the Indian flag, reportedly said."The Indian hackers also made the so-called claim that they loved Islam and Muslims but hated Pakistan. Giving a warning to Pakistanis, they said that websites of organizations like electricity distribution companies and commercial banks would also be hacked," the report said.Earlier, reports suggest that the same group has also hacked the website of the Bangladesh cabinet division.

Jun 17 2014 (3:30PM)   'Bhaisaab, can you please exchange seats?': 10 problems an upper berth train traveller in India will understand

It's a feat to get railway tickets booked these days and it's an even bigger accomplishment when you manage to get lower berths! Life, however, is unkind to most of us and it is very unlikely that we will ever get the seats of our choice on a train. If...
Read more...
you have been travelling alone for a while via Indian railways, you will know one thing for sure; nobody is going to readily exchange that upper berth with you.
Of course your bed up there is always waiting for you to crawl up and get comfortable, but the preparation to get up there is quite a task. If you've boarded the train in the middle of the night, you will mostly be looking for a couple of centimetres under the lower berth to stuff your bag or finding a safe space to place your shoes in. There are a few typical problems you will always encounter while travelling by train.
--
1] You are ridiculously close to the ceiling. If you’ve travelled by sleeper class, you will know how sitting up in the middle of the journey on the upper berth often resulted in a bump on your head.
2] You have to ask which station it is every now and then: Once you’re up there, your view of the outside world is completely cut-off. Which means you will now have to rely on conversations between random uncles to figure which station it is. Or you’ll be peeping at passers-by every now and then to ask them ‘kaun sa station aaya hai bhaisaab?’
3] Nobody wants to exchange seats with you: In case you thought that family on lower berth could adjust a little and exchange seats with you, nope, that won’t happen unless you’re a really old lady who claims she has arthritis.
4] You will find your shoes in another compartment: When you get down and wake up in the morning one of your shoes will have divorced the other one and will usually be found in another corner of the compartment.
5] You’re sitting on the edge of the seat because the lower berth people are still sleeping. You have to de-board the train at 5 a.m., which means you will climb down and sit at the edge of the lower berth seat in a highly uncomfortable posture because everyone else is happily sleeping.
6] You can’t throw wrappers out of the window: Everyone is busy eating and disposing of foils and papers out of the window while you pile up all the trash next to your head, or just pass it down to someone who could help you get rid of it.
7] The fan is of no use for you: Why do they even have a fan when nobody gets to know it’s even there!
8] Kids want to go and sit on the upper berth and scream in excitement: You may be travelling alone but not the others. They are travelling with kids who are overly excited about Ben10 and Doraemon and they will keep shouting on top of their voices about them right on the berth opposite to you.
9] Take everything you need from your bag before climbing up: Okay, so you’ve finally reached up there but you’ve left your headphones in the bag down there and now there’s no way you’re going to go all the way down to fetch them. If it has to be a boring journey, let it be.
10] You constantly fear your blanket will slip off and fall to the floor: When you’re travelling by an air conditioned coach, you will carefully prepare your bed and cover yourself by a bed sheet and a blanket, waking up every few minutes to check if they are still covering you and have not fallen to the floor.

solar panels are very costly and are suseptible to theft and damage....anyways currently the coaches do not depend on the engine for the power

I am not technically sound in this issue. But basix working of solar is that continuous sunlight for at least 2 or three hours is necessary. Secondly most solar panels are stationary.
So what I would suggest is that all stations and their platforms can be covered by solar panels and the same power can be used for all electricity requirements at the station such as lights, fans, ac, tv, display boards, and probably anti panel theft devices!!!!!!
