Should Sachin retire?


I read Sachin mentioned in one press conference,  "No one told me when to begin, why should people be NOW commenting on whether or not I should retire"

Sachin's argument lacks logic. No one advised him when to begin, because the Master Blaster was not known to the world then. Those who wish Sachin should retire from active cricket, actually love him. They only wish Sachin should not be unceremoniously excluded from the national team or meet Ganguly's fate. Even after retiring from playground, Sachin can still  continue guiding and coaching the players.

I compare Sachin with Savyasaachi Arjun of Mahabharat, who had to ultimately retire from the battleground, as time and tide wait for none (last Parva of the Epic).

Nuclear reactor safety can never be guaranteed


While debates over the Kudankulam nuclear power plant are raging in Tamil Nadu, , Hans-Peter Duerr, a German Scientist and Nobel Peace laureate has made it clear that it is not possible to substantiate the safety of a nuclear reactor, according to a recent news report.

He stated that despite working out security measures for possible threat scenarios, safe disposal of nuclear waste is still a bigger issue because if it lands in the wrong hands, it could be used to make atom bomb, further added the news report.
