Most fuel efficient diesel cars in India

Car manufacturers have realised that they cannot succeed without a diesel variant in their portfolio. This is the reason why Honda went to the drawing board and developed a diesel engine.

Honda didn’t have a single diesel car in its stable. It now plans to introduce diesel variant of its popular vehicles starting with City.

There is a surge in demand for diesel vehicles after petrol prices were de regulated last year. And India is a mileage crazy nation. Good fuel efficiency can make or break the deal.

Here are the 21 diesel cars that offer the best mileage.

Source for car price: Cardekho

Hyundai i20

Mileage: 21.9 kmpl

Price (ex showroom New Delhi): Rs 609,048 Rs 773,218

Hyundai i20 diesel has five variants. The most expensive one, Hyundai i20 Asta 1.4 CRDi, gives a mileage of 21.27 kmpl. All others are slightly more fuel efficient.

Buyers prefer the car as it is spacious, stylish, and has a good seating position. Recently, Tata Motors introduced a face lifted version of the hatch with huge improvements and added features such as ABS and steering mounted controls.

Tata didn just introduce cosmetic changes but added more powerful engine, bigger and better interiors, and improved quality overall.

Vista comes with six variants in the diesel category. Four with Quadrajet engines and two with TDI. The petrol variant starts at Rs 582,300 and it competes across categories with compact sedans such as Maruti Dzire and Honda Amaza, as well as compact SUVs such as Renault Duster and Mahindra XUV.

The car is elegant and comes loaded. Ford has also included good amount of safety features in it. The Ecoboost engine probably is the best in its category that gives a good balance of power and mileage.

The car looks sporty, aggressive and with character. It is an apt small car for youth and aspiring Indian customers looking for a bold, fuel efficient compact vehicle that is fun to drive in the city as well as on the highways.

cheap and delicious foodie spots in Auckland

have not forgotten their humble beginnings; keeping their refreshing menu of pho, salads, fresh and fried spring rolls and lemongrass dishes. Photo / Babiche MartensEating at restaurants is so old fashioned. With way more bang for your buck, it’s all about food trucks or at least mobile food, even if it’s not on wheels right now. Fast, cheap and delicious, you can now experience street food at a number of locations around Auckland.While we’re not yet LA, New York or Portland there is definitely a growing mobile food scene here. People are flocking to the night markets at Pakuranga, Glenfield and the new Silo Sessions to lap up Dutch poffertjes, Korean pancakes, Hungarian pastries, Japanese takoyaki and a wealth of other delights from all corners of the globe.Of course some countries have been doing this for years. The hawker stalls of Singapore and Penang are world renowned and in the last five years the food truck scene in the States has exploded. There you can find "pods" everywhere with seven or eight trucks in the same location every week.Social media plays a big part in the mobile food business here. Many operators don’t even bother having a website as the information/venues are always changing. Make sure you "like" all your favourite food on the go on their Facebook pages so you know where to find them when that taco/pizza/sausage/churro craving hits!Here are some of our favourites for food on the go in Auckland:This is the original version of what is now Restaurant in Beach Rd. They only had the caravan until 2009 when they found a permanent home in the CBD. But they haven’t forgotten their humble beginnings and you can still find their pho, salads, fresh and fried spring rolls, curries and lemongrass dishes at Takapuna. Ma Le is the mama in charge of the menu and her food is good. In December 2007 he started this mobile business as he saw the need for quality fresh food at events. He now has two mobile wood oven tandem trailer units and a customised wood oven container kitchen and can pump out 175 pizzas an hour with two ovens blazing. Try his classic margherita or Italian sausage toppings.Locations: Various events next are Classic Hits Winery Tour at Villa Maria Estate; Splore; Devonport Food and Wine Festival and WOMAD.Ph: 021 201 9206Torro ChurroWhen Sretko Nenadic was made redundant from his job at Fisher and Paykel, he took a trip to Melbourne. After seeing a churro stall with long queues he wondered whether it would be something he could replicate. Being an engineer he made his own machine and two years later has three units, is at six weekly venues and has queues longer than that stall in Melbourne. Churros come in regular, drizzled in chocolate and caramel and a jumbo size with a gooey caramel centre.Locations: Pakuranga and Glenfield Night markets; Silo on Friday nights; Otara markets; Takapuna Markets; AUT CampusPh: 021 060 1735Sam Sargent has followed the food truck revolution in the States very carefully and even worked with Koji BBQ of LA when designing his business. The gourmet sandwiches and salads fly out the window with a regular crowd of city workers. Part of the appeal is the very cool silver truck, loud music, tables and fake grass outside. It just looks like a cool place to be. Try the Angus Pure beef sandwiches. Heaven for carnivores.Location: Corner of Tyler and Commerce St, BritomartPh: 09 300 3089The quality of food in some trucks is beyond what you may expect. Frenchman Nico Fini has worked in Michelin starred restaurants and was head chef at a restaurant voted in the top 20 by Gault Millau. He has had his food cart for 14 years and has recently relocated from Christchurch where he has been known to sell more than 2000 snails and 700 lamb shanks on a good day at a festival. He has adapted his food to New Zealand palates but always retains the Frenchy flourishes like the spicy lamb sausage in the mega dog and the burger made with a venison patty. For those looking for the real French deal you can’t go past his escargot and lamb shanks.Locations: Various events next are Devonport Wine and Food Festival and Waikato Wine and Food FestivalPh: 027 642 0315Siri Taste of Sri LankaSri Lankan food is nowhere near as big as Thai, Japanese or Indian here but Nandasiri Alwis has been doing his best to educate us on his country’s cuisine. It’s working, as he’s gone from his one mobile unit to an outlet in Mt Roskill and now a restaurant in Sandringham too. His chicken appa kottu is amazing. It’s a wafer thin bowl made from rice and coconut milk batter filled with spicy chicken curry. He also serves curry rolls, curry puffs and chicken roti wraps.

A New Spiritual Breathing Exercise

I like to share with you a spiritual breathing exercise, a form of Spiritual Breathing that Breathworkers around the world have been practicing lately. There is no name for it yet, but maybe with practice, you will be inspired to give us one!

Visualize this. With the inhale we invite life force energy awaken and rise up from our center or source. With the exhale we fall down or drop down into our center. While inhaling we pull energy up from our innermost core, from our heart. While exhaling we relax and surrender into the divine spirit within.

And so a sacred meeting occurs. The essence or source of our being from within and rises up into our awareness. At the same time we consciously settle down and come home; we melt and merge into this source within.

We use breathing together with a heartfelt intention. We use breath together with feeling, and we set out on a moment to moment, breath by breath inner journey. We connect with our spirit thru consciousness and breath.

You can imagine this spirit or energy as light or love, as a feeling of deep peace and great joy.

Breathing in: draw energy up from the center of your being. Breathing out: drop down and relax into the center of your being. Inhaling: draw energy up from your source within. Exhaling: let go and fall into this source.

Inhaling: invite and welcome the energy of love and peace and joy to awaken and rise up from within you. Exhaling: drop down to meet and greet and merge with this energy of love and peace and joy.

As you inhale, feel an ocean like surge swelling up from within you. As you exhale, feel yourself surrender to it, consciously relax and melt into it!

It is up to us to take all the steps we can toward God. But it is God who takes the final step toward us! We can, thru our own efforts, bring ourselves to the door. But it God who opens the door, who reaches out, and welcomes us home!

Breathing in, actively invite and welcome life into your being; breathing out, let go and surrender your being to life. I was in a relationship where my partner was not paying enough attention to me, never told me that he loves me only when I asked him and I was never a priority in his life. One day I start searching for help and I heared about dr. alexzander Hightemple. He just safe my relationship. He did a spell charm to safe my relationship. Today I’m grateful to dr Alexzander Hightemple who did an amazing work. He safe our relationship and today my partner treat me like a queen. I became everything for him. Don’t think too much anymore because god has sent a great spell caster who can do all things,just to see smile on the face of young lovers and family. He is the one who will and can help you in what so ever situation you fine yourself into.

FAVORED ROYAL CLOSES IN ON TITLE

Such comebacks have not been required this year as the Highlanders of Simi Valley have dominated opponents while living up to their No. 1 seeding and drawing within two wins of the Southern Section title they’ve coveted since losing in last season’s final.This year, the late comebacks belong to a pair of Pacific League teams that join Royal as the local representatives in today’s Southern Section semifinals.Crescenta Valley and Glendale look for the comebacks to keep coming when they try to upset Mira Costa and Upland respectively in Division III matches. Royal faces No. Division IV game at UC Santa Barbara for a berth in Wednesday’s final against the Dos Pueblos Santa Barbara winner.A victory by unseeded Glendale over No. 4 Upland combined with No. 3 Crescenta Valley defeating No. 2 Mira Costa of Manhattan Beach would set up a rematch of the Pacific League final in Tuesday’s division championship at Belmont Plaza. However, the manner in which the league rivals reached this point suggests advancing won’t come easily.David Mulcahey scored the game winner for Crescenta Valley in overtime Tuesday against La Serna to give the Falcons (23 4) their second consecutive one point victory. Although the resiliency is encouraging, the close scores in early rounds are not.Beating Bay League champion Mira Costa (20 7) in the 3:15 game at Loyola Marymount requires shutting down Tyler Krikorian, who gave the Mustangs a come from behind victory of their own in the quarterfinals. He scored two goals in the closing minutes for a 9 8 win over South Pasadena.Glendale is more familiar with the role of underdog and should not be bothered by it. The Dynamiters (23 5) already eliminated the No. 1 seed and stayed within at least three goals during league games against Pacific champion Crescenta Valley.

About this blog
Four longtime Journal News reporters share their insights about fiction, non-fiction, poetry and short stories by bringing books discussions online and exploring the local literati scene. Lots of people say they are booklovers, but Elizabeth Ganga, Barbara Livingston Nackman, Ken Valenti and Randi Weiner really are!


What they blog about
Book Notes: An ongoing chat about events, authors and news items about books, libraries, authors and everything literary from metro news reporters Barbara Livingston Nackman and Elizabeth Ganga. Barbara has been a reporter for The Journal News since 1997. She covers municipalities in Putnam County and keeps track of book events everywhere - and began her career writing about books and libraries. Lisa has been a reporter for The Journal News since 2000, after working at several newspapers in Connecticut. She has covered cities and town in sourthern and northern Westchester and is a big Jane Austen fan (though she reads everything from history to mysteries). Both reporters work out of the Mount Kisco bureau and frequently trade tidbits about books and events.


Novel Pursuits: Ken Valenti sheds light on his ongoing experiences as a novelist and poet.  He talks about his trials and tribulations including musings about projects, readings, successes, and even insights into what he is reading and finds interesting. A reporter for The Journal News and its forerunners for more than 20 years, Ken now covers transportation. His first love has been writing fiction, but he's only begun pursuing that dream in recent years. He has been a reader and fiction editor for the journal Inkwell, and has published one short story in another fiction journal.


Seasoned Works: Randi Weiner dishes up an ongoing discussion about all books - old and savory. Though Randi keeps readers abreast of school issues most days and reads lots of children's and young adult books, current science fiction and murder mysteries, her overriding passion is older works generally written before 1940. She chats online about favorites and newly discovered treasures as well as book exhibits and talks related to the dusty, the musty and the marvelous illustrators of the past. She has been a reporter since 1976, with Gannett since 1989. And for the record, she says she has a personal library of more than 4,000 volumes.
