BBC News - Water map shows billions at risk of 'water insecurity'

Its important that government and people understand the risk of water and work towards it...Whole of india is in Yellow or red..

Rain water harvesting and waste water management seems to be the only ray of hope...

Tata Aria: Who would buy?

Tata Aria: Review Tata Aria, Price, Photos and Technical Specifications of Tata Aria

I am wondering at the price and placement of Tata Aria. Priced in the range of 14-17L on road, who would buy this? No wonder many beautiful features have been added, but one needs to visit the Tata service center to understand how much they are crowded by taxis and how much they are overworked to deal with cars in this range. Being a tata safari owner i know the pain the service center people are.

People who would be shelling out this much amount would shell few more to go for vitara, toyota fortuner or endeavour.

Probably tata would launch a strip down version on this to give competition to Mahindra XYLO and innova..

Tata is a good player in the value for money segment, but i am wondering which segment does aria fit in..

Most amazing moments on camera

DSC02530 While coming back from Ranikhet via ramnagar, there was this river crossing. As it had rained heavily since morning, the river was flowing with immense power. All vehicles were waiting at both ends for the river to reduce its fury. A Mahindra maxx guy thought all waiting are idiots and he drover the car across in the stream. people got afraid that the car would topple and tried to get out. The auntie slipped and could not gain footing back. Some people told me she was taken out of the stream,….I don’t know. I just saw her going down in the stream with the water..

This was what we see on AXN, worlds most amazing videos..happening in front of u, it was mind numbing experience.
