About Me

My photo
I am Doctor by profession. Like many of you I have numerous dreams, desires, ambitions and aims BUT most important is to live my life happily and peacefully enjoying every bit of it. Though I definitely want to be successful but am not in the rat-race to reach on Top. I want to enjoy every moment of my life and face the challenges as they come. In my view traveling to places is one of the best ways to detoxify our mind, body & soul. Wherever I go I try to explore the destination as much as possible. Hope you would like the posts...!!!!!

Taj Mahal : The Pride of India

Travellers from across the globe have ranked India's Taj Mahal among the top three landmarks in the world.
The top two places were taken by Machu Picchu in Peru and Angkor Wat in Cambodia respectively.

Some facts about our Taj Mahal:
Before his accession to the throne, Shah Jahan was popularly known as Prince Khurram.
Shah Jahan fell in love with the beautiful Arjumand Bano Begum and married her, making her his third wife.Arjumand Bano Begum was christened by Shah Jahan as Mumtaz Mahal, meaning the “Chosen One Of The Palace” or “Jewel of the Palace”.
Shah Jahan lost Mumtaz Mahal, when she died giving birth to their 14th child.
For the transportation of the construction materials, more than 1,000 elephants were employed.
As many as 28 different varieties of semi-precious and precious stones were used to adorn the Taj with exquisite inlay work.
Depending on what time of the day it is and whether or not there’s moon at night, Taj Mahal appears to be of different color every time. Some even believe that this changing pattern of colors depict different moods of a woman.
Passages from Quran have been used as decorative elements throughout the complex.
On the sides of the actual tomb of Mumtaz Mahal, 99 names of Allah can be found as calligraphic inscriptions.
Taj Mahal was built in stages, with the plinth and the tomb taking up roughly 15 years. Building of minarets, mosque, jawab, and gateway took additional 5 years to be completed.
Different types of marbles used in construction of Taj Mahal were brought over from many different regions & countries: Rajasthan, Punjab, China, Tibet, Afghanistan, Srilanka, & Arabia.
Many precious stones and Lapis Lazuli (a semi-precious stone) were ripped off from its walls by the Britishers during the Indian rebellion of 1857.
Taj Mahal attracts 2-4 million visitors annually with over 200,000 from overseas.

Transferring large files to an external drive

 There were times when our files used to be in Kbs & MBs and pen drives had 512MB or 1-2GB of space. But now in the times of Full HD & BluRay videos and graphic intensive games all this has changed. Now 3D BluRay movies are in the range of 10-15GB.

Today we also have high capacity pen drives in the market even upto 1TB. Though you can store lots of data in these pen drives but you can't transfer a single large file (more than 4GB) in most of these even if you have lots of free space. You get a message 'There is not enough free space' or some other error message.
If you have experienced this, the most probable reason is that your external drive is formatted with FAT32 system. In this, size of each individual file cannot exceed 4 GB.

SOLUTION: It is quite simple. Just format your external disk to NTFS file system, and you are done!!! BUT before doing so don't forget to save the data from your drive as it will all get deleted during the formatting.
NTFS is a journaled file system and MAY decrease life expectancy of your device. So you MUST use "Safely Remove Hardware" to remove your device.

Mac computers can read NTFS, but not write.
Mac users have to format the device to exFAT file system. exFAT is a new file system that allows files larger than 4GB to be stored.
Windows 7 is also compatible with exFAT. Older OS may need some upgradation to use exFAT.

Finally we have a proper Air Ambulance...

 India's first state-of-the art Air Ambulance, Flying Doctors India, has been launched in the national capital.

The new aircraft is tailor-made and equipped with a state-of-the-art Intensive Care Unit on a dedicated chartered aircraft. The goal is to provide critical care even when a patient is in transit.

"Earlier whenever we got a call, we would take a private aircraft, tape off the chairs and fit our equipment in. It was basically a 'jugaad' (temporary fix) of sorts. Now we have a dedicated air-ambulance ready for all emergency services," Dr Naresh Trehan of Medanta Medicity told NDTV.

With the air ambulance, flying doctors has taken a leap. The response time now is just 20 to a maximum of 90 minutes. Doctors say earlier it would take three hours just to prepare the aircraft.

Another timesaver is the aircraft's longer endurance level of upto seven-and-a-half hours unlike earlier when the aircraft would have to stop after 3 hours for refueling. 

"This could perhaps mean a matter of life or death for a patient," Dr Trehan says. 

However, Dr Trehan says hiring the aircraft it still not cheap. It can cost at least Rs. 50,000 per hour 

The aircraft can cater to patients even in smaller cities with the air ambulance having rough field capability which means it can land even on unprepared air strips.
