Designing a PV system is not very difficult it just needs good understanding of Watts, DC, AC, Amps, Voltage etc. But off course it is not rocket science. Anyone can design a solar system for their specific needs. You really do not need to hire an expert for that. I have written the whole procedure in easy to understand steps, hope you find it useful 🙂

India’s Republic Day celebrated by Finnair Flight
Finnair is Finnish airline with a huge fleet of modern aircrafts. It flies to over 63 destinations worldwide. I believe it’s a very customer oriented airline as is evident by their slogan “Designed for You.”. I came along a very beautiful video on YouTube in which a Finnair flight crew celebrated India’s Republic Day on 26 January in a most beautiful and awesome way, to the surprise of all passengers. I have watched this video a dozen times, have shown it to friends, family and am now blogging about it. What a beautiful way of celebrating and congratulating someone on their National Day. Please see the video and enjoy.
The Taliban brutality in Pakistan
Pakistan is at odds with the Taliban since last few years. Whatever the causes maybe of this war, but the fact is that its costing Pakistan a lot in terms of lives, damage destruction to property and Government infrastructure. Pakistan Army, Pakistanis and anyone living in Pakistan have paid a heavy price in this war. One could write a book about the causes of this conflict but this post is about the ground realities of the areas terrorized by the Taliban. Wherever they go these so called Taliban commit acts of brutality that were perhaps previously unheard of.
“Sher Khan” was all he replied, shyly when I asked the lad his name. He was selling balloons in the rain, near PDA market in Hayatabad, Peshawar. His attire was different than most of the boys and girls loitering about in the area, selling balloons or just begging for a few rupees. He wore jeans, shirt, jacket and sneakers, and was using a polyethylene sheet as a raincoat. The boy must have been 9 or 10 years old. Sher Khan begged me to buy a balloon from him, which I did and paid him much more than what he asking for. He was happy and smiled at me followed by a “Thank You”. What saddened me was not his appearance, dress or anything else, rather that he was selling balloons in such rough weather. I asked him for a photo and he readily agreed.
