  2. I guess we should not look every decision with political lenses..am not pro to any party but I still think this is an change in bureaucratical structure , because whole pattern not changed since 70 years.
    2 . lateral entry is not new thing , hon'ble Manmohan Singh , Montek singh Ahluwalia , captain Raghu Raman are a fine example and they had done very good.

    Paying my sincere regards to Sandeep sir.

  3. It is not a sudden U-turn of a river. Perhaps you may be knowing that the Indian Sub-continent has two syntaxial bends at its northern extremity – in the NW it is around the Nanga Parbat Peak with deep entrenched Indus River hair pin bend and in the NE it is around Namcha Barwa Peak with deep entrenched Brahmaputra River hair pin bend. These sharp hair pin bends reflect the structural adaptation of river segments as well as deep entrenchment (rapid down cutting) in response to the tectonic upliftment of the terrain (Collision tectonics).

  4. Ganga bifurcates into Hoogly and Padma(in Bangladesh) after Farakka in West Bengal. Brahamputra is known as Jamuna in Bangladesh. After Padma (Indian- Ganga) and Jamuna (Indian- Brahamputra) meet in Bangladesh they are known as Meghna as single river. Hoogly is k/s Bhagirathi in Bangladesh.
    P. S. Correct me if I am wrong.

    Gulag camps existed throughout the Soviet Union, but the largest camps lay in the most extreme geographical and climatic regions of the country from the Arctic north to the Siberian east and the Central Asian south. Prisoners were engaged in a variety of economic activities, but their work was typically unskilled, manual, and economically inefficient. The combination of endemic violence, extreme climate, hard labor, meager food rations and unsanitary conditions led to extremely high death rates in the camps.
