IT HAPPENS ONLY IN INDIA,
GREAT JOB MR. PARMAR
it is good to eat as many as vegetables and fruits (totally vegetarian), but my aurvedic doctor asked me to stop eating every...
I agree with your points on lack of parking space and need for a solution to this problem in delhi and other metros.however, India can not be compared with US or europe for the basic fact that quality of both nations is very different from what we have. A nation is formed by the group of people it has and their common living style. Our living style ,i.e. civic sense, is very poor which hinderes rmulation of good practices prevailent in developed countries. take for example,metro train service...how many times you are people like you might have travelled? just ask this question.I travelled a lot in metro trains in other countries includinga trams of small country like Tunisia;I travel in delhi as well in metro which always runs full and is nowdays seeing deterioration of quality,nevertheless,it is very difficult to travel I can say for sure. therefore it is notjust public transport but aso the quality and civic sense that is important. what you have proposed is end of pipe solution which in Indian condition is not easy implementable. I would rather ask you to have a look of all environmental clearances granted to buildings in recent past and seee how parking lots have been justified by the buildres.we do not have any provision in our bylawas for visitors who would be visiting the building for various purposes ,be in residential or commercial. Gurgaon and Ghaziabad are two satelite towns which are facing parking problems due to such omissions.list would be quite long if i go on wriitng. however,point i wanna make here is that we need to have several solution toools than just one and we also need to focus more on preventive soultions than end of pipe kind. Wstern countries have better planning aspect while we are almost nil in this area.

A good post with a character! Thanks Shalini-ji.
Arundhati Roy is the Booker Prize winning author of the book, 'God of Small Things'. In her extended essay 'The Greater Common Good' which was reprinted in her book 'The Cost of Living' Roy says:
"Big Dams are to a Nation's 'Development' what Nuclear Bombs are to its Military Arsenal. They're both weapons of mass destruction. They're both weapons Governments use to control their own people. Both Twentieth Century emblems that mark a point in time when human intelligence has outstripped its own instinct for survival. They're both malignant indications of civilisation turning upon itself. They represent the severing of the link, not just the link - the understanding - between human beings and the planet they live on. They scramble the intelligence that connects eggs to hens, milk to cows, food to forests, water to rivers, air to life and the earth to human existence."

As Piyush cited and as Ratheesh vouched, cost effective and simple techniques can be put in place were the civil authorities can respond fast with conviction. It is an uphill task in Kerala to enthuse the local bodies on the way they should move. As of now, what has been tried is to shake them off their slumber, introduce them to the simple method developed by Swathy and Shwetha and to provide continued scientific and technical support.
I agree with the entire comment above. Thanks for sharing nice information with us. free psp games, get rid of pimples, steam mops, radar detectors. i like your post and all you share with us is up todate and quite informative, i would like to bookmark the page so i can come here again to read you, as you have done a wonderful job.
Dinsa Sachan' article encapsulates the emerging Industrialization of Genomics so tightly that only a little clarification is required for readers in India (who stand out in viewership of the Google Tech Talk YouTube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJMFuc75V_w "Is IT ready for the Dreaded DNA Data Deluge".
Dinsa quotes me: “The biggest challenge is interpretation. Genome is a changing repository of information because mutations and actual sequence alterations happen throughout life.” IT experts, familiar to "information" as defined by mathematician Shannon know that the A,C,T,G four bases technically constitute a "2-bit massively parallel data-flow device". However, biological definition of "information" is not yet defined (if two pictures composed of identical number of pixels, one showing your mother living far away, the other showing a stranger, which picture contains more "information" for you?). This is where Crick went wrong with his "Central Dogma of Molecular Biology", pontificating over half a Century ago, that proteins "never" recourse to DNA altering its "sequence information". Today we know that "sequence information" constantly changes not only in the technical sense of mutations e.g. when you fly to visit your mother, due to radiation through flight or smoking just a few cigarettes and a letter becomes knocked out - but the accessible sequence information changes even more massively through epigenomic effects, rendering long sequences unreadable due to e.g. methylation and chromatin modulation. Philosophycally, this constant change translates to "The Genome is NOT your Destiny" - and business-wise that HolGenTech, Inc. turns Industrialization of Genomics into a "repeat customer mode". - Dr. Pellionisz
since the high court ordered to stop the dyeing but many dyeing are still running.
very good idea.We already recommended in 2009 in our study report, but the authorities not interested
i wish my city will develope more and more
turn from barren waste land to a symbol of greenery....

This is the most unusual crisis people are facing, but i feel there could be a better & environment friendly option to get benefit from them.
As we all know its a ORGANIC material, it could be degraded completely and the residual could be used as the manure.
The answer to this how is simple.
Linköping [ˈlɪnɕøːpɪŋ] is a city in southern Sweden, This city might provide us the solution of the organic waste.
Yes, if we catch them, Crush them using industrial crusher and to convert them meat & broken shells.
Technology to get them converted into the useful BIOGAS & manure could be requested from Sweden.
As we do have some of the Organic waste generated by Fishing Industry, Poultry etc. in the form of organic industrial waste (usually uneatable and useless body parts of fish, chicken, goats etc. ) these materials could be utilized with them.
They are available for negligible cost, and converting them into useful energy and manure would be benefit to society.
The snails could be captured manually and financial support for the wages could be earned from:
a. NREGS (Under Village Improvement)
b. Ministry of Forest & Environment ( eradicating threat to local environment)
c. Ministry of Rural development
d. Ministry of New and Renewable Energy
The solution to crush them may look weird but its most environment friendly option we have, most importantly we can now be using them for energy that will avoid threat to environmental pollution in the form of viral or bacterial infections and diseases.
In other words, a small scale project for this cause could be a community benefit.
