Radio MPSC Guru - India's First Educational Internet Radio.

Informative session about the important personality. Prakash Padukone is a former Indian badminton player. He was ranked World No. 1 in 1980; the same year he became the first Indian to win the All England Open Badminton Championships. He was awarded the Arjuna award in 1972 and the Padma Shri in 1982 by the Government of India. He is one of the co-founders of Olympic Gold Quest, a foundation dedicated to the promotion of Olympic sports in India. George Stephenson was a British civil engineer and mechanical engineer. Renowned as the "Father of Railways", Stephenson was considered by the Victorians a great example of diligent application and thirst for improvement. Self-help advocate Samuel Smiles particularly praised his achievements. His chosen rail gauge, sometimes called 'Stephenson gauge', was the basis for the 4 feet 8+1⁄2 inches (1.435 m) standard gauge used by most of the world's railways. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app

Innovations happened one after another and they all seemed destined to change the world forever. Assuredly, one of the most important novelties of the 19th century was the railway. It marked a decisive shift in how people could travel the world. Distances that previously seemed unreachable were now just a day or two away. And we might have never enjoyed this revolution without George Stephenson, a man aptly named the “Father of the Railways.”

On The Record With Rocko Jerome

May usually brings the annual Wonderfest event, a gathering point for scale modelers to compare their creations and celebrate common interests. With the current COVID crisis postponing the show, stalwart modelmaker George Stephenson (of Black Heart Models fame) has stepped up to create a virtual version in the meantime. It's called Want-A-Fest, and it's become a beacon of light for the community. George took time to talk about this idea, how it's grown, and why for a lot of us, this "hobby" gives life great rewards.https://www.facebook.com/groups/245813096539829/
