I hope that by now the NMC must how formulated some rules/regulations for this years Ganesh Chaturthi. If not done then they still have some time to do it
The asbestos lobby is transparently behind the about turn in India's stand. With elections around the corner, is it any wonder?
The Hindus earlier were lovers of ecology and used to protect it, sustain it. But modern day Hindus, they are selfish, egoistic and Hypocrites. They want to show off, In Bangalore, take the case of festivals. Households spend lavishly on festivals and they cause terrible damage to the ecology. In many houses they have put concrete in such a way they will never allow even a blade of grass to grow. They will pull down the trees planted by corporation in front of house because it disturbs their car. They go with so much pollution and destroy the flora and fauna, really calling ourselves Hindus is equivalent to calling Hitler Ramana Maharishi
Raising the set-point temperature for cooling by air-conditioning from 21-22°C to 25-26°C can itself bring significant savings in the energy consumption for cooling. The users of the air-conditioned space should be more responsive to the ambient conditions and should be the able to regulate the air-conditioning depending the type of usage and out-door climatic conditions.
Congratulations for this brilliant writing. Our research at IIT Delhi has developed a parameter which can 'numerically measure' the energy efficiency of the building envelope of an air-conditioned office building located in Composite/Hot- Dry/ Warm-Humid climate of India. This parameter can easily be incorporated as the limiting criteria in the Building Energy Code of India. Because the parameter correlates very well with the annual energy consumption of the building, it can be very useful in the green rating system as well.
The Buiding Energy Code of any country must always be in a review process and it should incorporate amendments based on research inputs and feedback.

Sri Khanapurkar Sir,
This is what Dr. Hedgewar expected from every swayamsevak and this work is the real meaning of being a swayamsevak.

I have come to the conclusion that we all have a little blame global warming and its consequences and guilt even more politicians who do not slow down.
I would suggest Mr Seshan to vist the sewage treatment plant site at ukkadam in coimbatore which uses the same technology. His perception that "there will not be any foul smell when the process is fully under control" will vanish very rapidly.
I would like to question why the pollution control board decided to adopt a "buffer zone" of 250 and 500 meters around the ondipudur and ukkudam STP of the same technology, if they feel so confident of the technology.
The corporation started construction of open areation basins that were located just 4 meters away from the residences and the same pollution control authorities had earlier recommended shifting the STP to another site because of proximity to residences and unsuitablity of the site.
As usual is the case in our great land, when embarrassing questions are asked, committees are formed.
A few committees reports later, including the very illustrious report from the civil engineering department of IIT Madras, which recommends that a buffer zone of 5 meters is sufficient for a STP of 4 crore liters capacity per day. The Pollution control board has been genorous in sanctioning a 30 meter buffer zone.(down sized from 500 meters from its own guidelines).
Thank you sirs for your genorocity, shame on you and also the people who bring shame to great institutions like IIT Madras.
The fact of the matter is the Coimbatore Corporation officials have spent a few crores of money and started construction at the site without approvals, and in violation of rules and regulations including a complete go by given to the statutory consent to establish to be taken from the TNPCB.
Governmental pressures started acting and official brotherhood made it mandatory to try to accomodate the STP at the same site, so that a few official skins could be saved.
So what if a few 1,000 residents get displaced or suffer. After all this is India, we can get away with anything.
