Google Colab setup for fast.ai Deep learning course

For past few days I have been trying to setup Google Colab to run fast.ai lesson files.
Found multiple post on the same but  I was getting some or other error.

So here is the code which worked for me, I know there is latest version of fast.ai, but I wasn't able to make it work with that. 
Here the code is based on fastai version 0.7.

I am unable to mention the author of the original post, as I was trying multiple combination at the time. If you are able to find, please comment, I will update my post with proper citation.

PS: sometimes Google colab throws random error, so I will suggest to reset all runtime and then run again
