ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsWhile revamping utility and public structures has been the need of the hour, the New Delhi Railway Station can't be left untouched for long. Just a month ago, Mathura Railway Station got an absolutely new look and now it's time for Delhi to literally shine. The station was given an artsy feel, rich in culture and heritage and now every time we're catching a train from there, we'd be afraid to miss it, because it's done up quite elaborately and beautifully. The station building looks quite vibrant with some colourful patterns strewn across, with wall art and geometrical designs all over the ceilings. It really looks like we're amidst a colourful little cultural village. The station has also upgraded its public facilities like LED lights, escalators and LCD displays, all over. © Twitter The station will be equipped with solar panels for deriving energy from them and it'll be kept clean throughout. Well, Delhi isn't the only station that has been revamped. Apart from Mathura, there is also Haridwar, Jaipur and Lonavla. They've all been beatified and upgraded just as Delhi and Mathura. Railway Minister Piyush Goyal tweeted about the development of the station: à¤¬à¤¦à¤²à¤¤à¤¾ à¤à¤¾à¤°à¤¤, à¤¬à¤¦à¤²à¤¤à¥ à¤°à¥à¤²à¤µà¥à¤ à¤¸à¥à¤µà¤¿à¤§à¤¾à¤¯à¥à¤, à¤¸à¥à¤µà¤à¥à¤à¤¤à¤¾ à¤à¤° à¤¸à¥à¤à¤¦à¤°à¥à¤¯ à¤¸à¥ à¤à¤°à¤¾ à¤¨à¤ à¤¦à¤¿à¤²à¥à¤²à¥ à¤°à¥à¤²à¤µà¥ à¤¸à¥à¤à¥à¤¶à¤¨ à¤à¤¾ à¤¨à¤¯à¤¾ à¤à¤à¤°à¥à¤·à¤ à¤°à¥à¤ª à¤¯à¤¾à¤¤à¥à¤°à¤¿à¤¯à¥à¤ à¤à¥ à¤à¤ à¤µà¤¿à¤¶à¥à¤µà¤¸à¥à¤¤à¤°à¥à¤¯ à¤°à¥à¤²à¤µà¥ à¤¸à¥à¤à¥à¤¶à¤¨ à¤à¤¾ à¤à¤¹à¤¸à¤¾à¤¸ à¤à¤°à¤¾ à¤°à¤¹à¤¾ à¤¹à¥à¥¤ pic.twitter.com/rUiirbwjDj — Piyush Goyal (@PiyushGoyal) 14 March 2019 The new look of the Railway station went down pretty well with most people and they took to Twitter to praise the efforts made by the Ministry of Railways and the Indian Railway Station Development Corporation.

Or you can just check out these pictures here: © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter © Twitter The Indian Railway Station Development Corporation (IRSDC), which is a special purpose vehicle (SPV) for revamping and developing such structures, will invest about Rs 7,500 crore, for redeveloping close to 50 railway stations across India. Simultaneously with that, they will also have a beatification drive alongside, which will entail paintings and art along the premises of the station. We're glad the Indian Railways are making an effort to revamp old stations and after airports, this was pretty much the need of the hour.
ADMIN posted a blog entry in FDF Online NewsEvery kingdom stands tall and unthreatened courtesy to the knights in shining armour who hold down the fort against the enemies' onslaught, with all their might. The Indian subcontinent boasts of such mighty knights of its own. The only difference is, they don't wear those glinting armours. Instead, these knights sport camo-prints and put on such a display of bravado that is matched only by a few others. © Arjun Menon Their job profile isn't something you come across very often. You will find them setting up their homes in the most remote areas of the country, or someplace with adverse climatic conditions, marking their territories and standing guard over it, should its borders be threatened. © Arjun Menon These are the men and women who form the Indian Armed Forces, and they are the reason you and I can concern ourselves with all the memes in the world. But how many times have we stopped to wonder about the many life-threatening challenges and attacks these superheroes have to survive on a daily basis, so we get to party until 4 in the morning or get a good night of sleep? © Arjun Menon But somebody thought about it. And decided to bring the unseen side of their story for the masses to behold. Travel photographer Arjun Menon is the man behind the spectacular show of these heroes in their natural surroundings, doing what they do best. © Arjun Menon Arjun had the chance to document how a day in the life of these superheroes looks like, and he spent weeks tailing them across the changing geographies of the land. The end result was 'The Extraordinary' photo-series and the pictures are for all of us to see and marvel over. The Backstory This is a daunting task to accomplish and we wonder what how Arjun got around to accomplishing it. If you ask this question to Arjun he would tell you that 'The Extraordinary' was his personal passion project. Before you wonder why, it's because Arjun himself comes from an Army background. © Arjun Menon Arjun's father was a pilot with the Indian Army Aviation, and ever since he was a kid, Arjun took pride in the fact that his father could fly a heavy, mean machine high up in the skies, performing combat training or helping out paratroopers jump off his helicopter, besides many other things. Arjun lost his father to a helicopter crash 16 years ago, and ever since he had wished to bring the trials and tribulations of the Indian Army to the fore, through the only means he knew - photography. © Arjun Menon The Extraordinary Project Once Arjun decided what exactly he wanted to achieve through this project, he set his plans into motion. For Arjun, the aim of this project was to explore and throw light on the extraordinary feats these men and women accomplish throughout their tenure, without yearning for credit or appreciation. © Arjun Menon The Final Journey Arjun set out to bring his dreams to fruition and sought chances to observe and document the army soldiers in action - practising or in pseudo combats. But initially, the Indian Army wasn't too sure about giving in to Arjun's demands of being sent to secret bases to click the photographs. It took multiple visits to Delhi and some convincing before they believed that Arjun's motivations were right. © Arjun Menon Next? Arjun got to travel to different confidential bases across India to document it all. Arjun shot in some very difficult locations, and the soldiers completely cooperated with Arjun to bring each of his visions to life. The Takeaway Having spent so much personal time with the soldiers, clicking the photographs and observing their workday up close, Arjun released how incredible each of them are. From temperatures ranging between -18 degrees to 48 degree Celsius, and in topographies that would make an ordinary person give up within minutes, these superheroes continue to perform their duty without a word of complaint. © Arjun Menon A lot of hardwork and love has gone into this project, and all Arjun wishes to accomplish through this photo series is to inspire the youth of this nation to consider the Indian Army as a career option. That he says, would be his “mission accomplished”.
