Facing real Humans

What can be a perfect place other than market, where we can find every human from poor to rich, from social animal to animal what not everything..

The best thing about market we meet many, hence in search of some real human face which don’t make other face I went on to photograph some people in the market in Mysore Devaraya market..

The “C” factor! 

Well before writing this post I’d like to say that I am not a connoisseur in discussing about ThE  largest Democratic & secular country, but I had my own perspective regarding the influence of ” C ” factor in my country India. 

      Upto 19th and 20th  century India is well known for its audacity  and hardwork in achieving freedom from the colonial British rule who robed us completely leaving something to cheer like Industrial revolution and education( yes, they have introduced us to the world and its trade). We achieved independence and every one ia happy. 

But some how We proved that we aren’t capable of holding highest peak of happiness, so there came a partition. India – Pakistan respectively based on the religion.,Hindus to India, Muslims to Pakistan. Hence it began finally began the ” C” factor which no one wished to be arriving COMMUNAL RIOTS, the founder stone for the India we see now. 

              So, it began the Unwanted ” c” caste. Political parties, patriarchy everything, every where in every single part of India has been lead by Caste based. The society has been so, if he is a brahmin he has the right to be educated nd goes on. Big shit! 

        In this 21st century we Indians have been know globally for “C” cinema, cricket, cash, culture. 

  • CINEMA :- It has much influence on us more than our parents sometimes. They had the right to establish the removal of stigma regarding religion and caste, we admire them,we make them thw superheros of life. So they should make difference instead of becoming hypocrites and prejudicial 
  • CRICKET :- Larger than life sport, more than a religion, it is in our blood. So what has Cricket to do with our country? . It is what made Indians proud in every part more than other and their are so called MP’s who wish to iclude caste based reservations in cricket. Please sir I wish u could die as soon as possible. 
  • CASH :- largest building economy – This line is enough to make us know
  • CULTURE :- From America to Australia every single one is fond of our culture


So.,I feel My Country should be well know for it’s CINEMA, CULTURE, CASH, CRICKET and not for caste and communal riots. Jai Hind!

What is in the Paris climate agreement?

The deal unites all the world’s nations in a single agreement on tackling climate change for the first time in history.

Coming to a consensus among nearly 200 countries on the need to cut greenhouse gas emissions is regarded by many observers as an achievement in itself and has been hailed as “historic”.

The Kyoto Protocol of 1997 set emission cutting targets for a handful of developed countries, but the US pulled out and others failed to comply.

However, scientists point out that the Paris accord must be stepped up if it is to have any chance of curbing dangerous climate change.

Pledges thus far could see global temperatures rise by as much as 2.7C, but the agreement lays out a roadmap for speeding up progress.

What are the key elements?

To keep global temperatures “well below” 2.0C (3.6F) above pre-industrial times and “endeavour to limit” them even more, to 1.5C

To limit the amount of greenhouse gases emitted by human activity to the same levels that trees, soil and oceans can absorb naturally, beginning at some point between 2050 and 2100

To review each country’s contribution to cutting emissions every five years so they scale up to the challenge

For rich countries to help poorer nations by providing “climate finance” to adapt to climate change and switch to renewable energy.

PARIS CLIMATE CHANGE AGREEMENT? 

What was agreed in Paris?

Climate change, or global warming, refers to the damaging effect of gases, or emissions, released from industry, transportation, agriculture and other areas into the atmosphere.

The Paris accord is meant to limit the global rise in temperature attributed to emissions. Only Syria and Nicaragua did not sign up.

Countries agreed to:

Keep global temperatures “well below” the level of 2C (3.6F) above pre-industrial times and “endeavour to limit” them even more, to 1.5C

Limit the amount of greenhouse gases emitted by human activity to the same levels that trees, soil and oceans can absorb naturally, beginning at some point between 2050 and 2100

Review each country’s contribution to cutting emissions every five years so they scale up to the challenge

Enable rich countries to help poorer nations by providing “climate finance” to adapt to climate change and switch to renewable energy

Nasa’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies says the world’s average temperature has risen by about 0.8C since 1880, two-thirds of that since 1975.

US think tank Climate Interactive predicts that if all nations fully achieve their Paris pledges, the average global surface temperature rise by 2100 will be 3.3C, or 3.6C without the US.

Water crisis in India – problem and its solution

http://www.mapsofindia.com/my-india/society/water-the-next-looming-crisis

​Despite water being an existential need for humans, it’s also one of the most under prioritized but over abused commodity. Water is central to our lives but has not been the central point of focus in our planning while we rapidly evolve into an urban society.

Through time, early societies understood the importance and need for water and planned their lives around it. Civilizations were born and lost on account of water. Today, we have the advantage of this knowledge and we still fail to value it and plan our societies around it.

Let’s focus on India. The world’s oldest civilization grew around the Indus and the Ganges and is still thriving. But not for long. Post-independence, due importance was given to harnessing the power of water by way of controlling and storing of water through large Dams. That was the need of the hour. However, our cities and towns have subsequently grown without planning for water need vs water availability. In 1951, the per capita water availability was about 5177 m3. This has now reduced to about 1545 m3 in 2011 (Source: Water Resources Division, TERI)

Reasons behind water scarcity in India

The water scarcity is mostly man made due to excess population growth and mismanagement of water resources. Some of the major reasons for water scarcity are:

Inefficient use of water for agriculture. India is among the top growers of agricultural produce in the world and therefore the consumption of water for irrigation is amongst the highest. Traditional techniques of irrigation causes maximum water loss due to evaporation, drainage, percolation, water conveyance, and excess use of groundwater. As more areas come under traditional irrigation techniques, the stress for water available for other purposes will continue. The solution lies in extensive use of micro-irrigation techniques such as drip and sprinkler irrigation.

Reduction in traditional water recharging areas. Rapid construction is ignoring traditional water bodies that have also acted as ground water recharging mechanism. We need to urgently revive traditional aquifers while implementing new ones.

Sewage and wastewater drainage into traditional water bodies. Government intervention at the source is urgently required if this problem is to be tackled.

Release of chemicals and effluents into rivers, streams and ponds. Strict monitoring and implementation of laws by the government, NGOs and social activists is required.

Lack of on-time de-silting operations in large water bodies that can enhance water storage capacity during monsoon. It is surprising that the governments at state levels has not taken this up on priority as an annual practice. This act alone can significantly add to the water storage levels.

Lack of efficient water management and distribution of water between urban consumers, the agriculture sector and industry. The government needs to enhance its investment in technology and include all stakeholders at the planning level to ensure optimization of existing resources.

Urban nightmare

The problem has been compounded with increased concretization due to urban development that has choked ground water resources. Water is neither being recharged nor stored in ways that optimizes its use while retaining the natural ingredients of water. In addition, the entry of sewage and industrial waste into water bodies is severely shrinking the availability of potable water. Marine life is mostly lost in these areas already. This is the genesis of a very serious emerging crisis. If we do not understand the source of the problem we will never be able to find sustainable solutions.

As an example, take Hyderabad. This city of Nizams had several water aquifers and water bodies through time. Osmansagar and Himayatsagar lakes were built and have been providing drinking water to the city for well over a hundred years. Excess migration of population to the city coupled with unplanned construction in all directions, resulted in traditional aquifers, which existed in and around the city, being blocked.

There are over 50,000 bore wells operated by the state owned HMWS&SB and private owners that have been drawing ground water. The levels have now fallen significantly. If the ground water cannot recharge, the supply will get only get worse. The demand for water continues to grow while the collection, storage, regeneration and distribution has become over stressed. The story repeats itself across urban centers in India.

Solutions to overcome water scarcity problems

Absolutely!

A simple addition of a ‘water free’ male urinal in our homes can save well over 25,000 liters of water, per home per year. The traditional flush dispenses around six liters of water per flush. If all male members including boys of the house use the ‘water free urinal’ instead of pulling the traditional flush, the collective impact on the demand for water will reduce significantly. This must be made mandatory by law and followed up by education and awareness both at home and school.

The amount of water that is wasted during dish washing at home is significant. We need to change our dish washing methods and minimize the habit of keeping the water running. A small step here can make a significant saving in water consumption.

Every independent home/flat and group housing colony must have rain water harvesting facility. If efficiently designed and properly managed, this alone can reduce the water demand significantly.

Waste water treatment and recycling for non-drinking purposes. Several low cost technologies are available that can be implemented in group housing areas.

Very often, we see water leaking in our homes, in public areas and colonies. A small steady water leak can cause a loss of 226,800 liters of water per year! Unless we are aware and conscious of water wastage we will not be able to avail the basic quantity of water that we need to carry on with our normal lives.

The time to take initiative has arrived.

FDA approves first new drug for ALS treatment in 22 years

ALS  ​Story highlights

  • Tests showed the drug slowed the decline of physical function
  • Radicava should be available in the United States in August
  • (CNN)The US Food and Drug Administration has approved the first new drug for the treatment of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or ALS, in more than two decades.

    The FDA announced Friday that Radicava, also known as edaravone, has been approved for use in the United States. The only other drug specifically for the treatment of ALS is riluzole, which was approved for use in the United States in 1995.

      Tests conducted in Japan found that ALS sufferers who received edaravone experienced a smaller decline in their level of daily functioning compared to those who received a placebo. MT Pharma, the maker of edaravone, said the drug slowed the decline of physical function by 33%.

      The Food and Drug Administration has approved Radicava to treat patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), commonly referred to as Lou Gehrig's disease.






    “After learning about the use of edaravone to treat ALS in Japan, we rapidly engaged with the drug developer about filing a marketing application in the United States,” Eric Bastings, the deputy director of the FDA’s neurology products division, said in a statement. “This is the first new treatment approved by the FDA for ALS in many years, and we are pleased that people with ALS will now have an additional option.”

    Lou Gehrig’s Disease

    ALS is a progressive, neurodegenerative disease. It affects the nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord that make muscles work. Those nerve cells lose their ability to initiate and control muscle movement, which leads to paralysis and death.

    ALS is also called Lou Gehrig’s disease, named after the famous baseball player who retired in 1939 because of the condition.

    Football greats Dwight Clark, Gale Sayers battle brain diseases

    The disease gained new prominence in 2014, thanks to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. Fueled by social media, the campaign prompted millions of people to post videos of themselves dumping cold water on their heads and drove $115 million dollars in donations to the ALS Association in just eight weeks. The flood of donations helped fund important developments in ALS research, the association said.

    “BANNED” – The New Indian Brand 

    So here we start.. We, Indians selected a New Government that had the capability to shift the face of the country – The biggest party formed in this contemporary India in 21st century… People believed in them that

    BJP the largest party would be saving us from the Feudalistic party Congress.. To make India corruption free, to be Democratic, secular India that it was in the past

    SO this is what we are looking for.. 2 years are gone without anything happend and instead of that Brand has evolved in no time “Banned” 

    When I wokeup on November 8th I was the happiest, amused, excited person.. I Never thought that Demonitization will happen. Like every one I was a happy and lauded BJP government for their brave step.. 

    Okay, dat is okay we are general public and we doesn’t know about our economy, GDP nd everything. We gave a applause.. Modi has done what he wants to do.. To make a corruption less country to make India great.

    But, here is the problem raised.. Without even concluding the bigger brains of the country.. how did Modiji take that step.. Without even considering aftermath of Demonitization.

    We Indians, we aren’t rich we all are based on monthly wages.. Employees who dream about 1st of a month.. We dont have enough bank account. We dont have Internet connections.. We probably don’t know how to use a smartphone.. This many aspects Are still present now. Without even consideration the government had done it single handedly.. Pity on you Modiji..U killed the common.. 

    I believed in Government that there will definitely be a change in situation after December 31st..a new year.. New beginning nothing has happened.. Poor wan more poor and the middle class family has no idea what was going in ther vicinity.. 

          For our own money we got to stand for long hours.. No money.. ATMs are closes cashless nd Congrats for ua cashless dream it happend. 
    I neva thought that a person would be standing in queue for long  hours nd leaving his life for his money.. Great very Great. 

    Even now in March the cash crisis didn’t end nd da common man is still hoping for the good to happen..
