RAIN WATER HARVESTING


Monsoon has reached in all parts of India and many parts of country are affected from flood problem and almost every major city is facing water logging problem. If we see few weeks back water scarcity is a very big problem in many cities of the country. If we think carefully about the situation we the humans had reversed the nature cycle because we consume natural resources like anything and never plans and works to recharge them. In every monsoon season media highlights the problems of water logging, floods pictures and videos from all over India and we just pass comment about these problem but never wakes up and moves towards solution of problems.

Rain Water  must be reserved and stored for lateral usage as we knows that ground water level has gone down drastically and many regions are in dark zone because of non recharge of ground water. The reason behind non recharging is increasing in concrete area and non adoption of methods, techniques and ways of RAIN WATER HARVESTING. Rain water must be harvested in all aspects of life and at every place whether it is residential, commercial or industrial. Also our farmers must be educated to store and use rain water. On the part of government motivation in form of subsidy, guidance and awareness program etc. required to be executed at ground level not only in papers. Generally schemes / project of government takes too long to reach / execute and by the time project really starts and takes speed the time is already passed and projects/scheme become irrelevant.
For rain water harvesting Macro & Micro both kinds of methods need to be adopted.

Technical innovation required for above which are commercial viable at small and large levels.

After Rain

Thankfully yesterday some rain spell at area of old Faridabad made the environment cooler but water logged at various places like Sec-16 near Motimahal area, 16-17-18 chowk, etc. made the situation very critical because of inaction of various government agencies. If you go from Old Faridabad to Naharpar the road is in worst condition and pedestrians can not move due to single road and encroachment on pavements. 2-3 months back road has been digged for laying of bigger sewerage line and mud is not removed which is blocking all entry points made for water exit. Whenever any scooter/car/truck/bus moves in logged water the peoples standing on the roadside are totally wet due to water waves. Think about small students who are ready to go school and person who is waiting for his office cab and suddenly due to a fast moving vehicle his clothes are wet and dirty, what is the solution of this problem. It is all because of lack of action by government administration.

As per my observation generally government spent's a big amount on cleaning of sewerage before monsoon every year and possibly the same has been done this year too but this year possibly the activity has gone only on papers and taxpayers money eaten by corrupt individuals or gang of corrupt officials/contractors/others.

Monsoon

Yesterday a spell of pre monsoon rain comes to Delhi, Bihar, Uttar Pradesh, Rajasthan, Uttarakhand giving much needed relief. As per expectation monsoon will reach north India by July 12. As we all knows that in previous two weeks due to so much heat everyone is talking about rain and delay of monsoon seeded a fear in government, farmers and everybody that this year we have to face a drought like situation and Indian economy which is already under pressure due to Global Meltdown will further decline and prices of food items which are already very high will further go up. Problem of Power & Water is so big because of declining water levels in major dams like Tehri, Bakhra, etc. and major rivers are on the verge of end. Many parts of the northern india farmers who are dependent on rivers water through canals may not get water and production of kharib may be affected.

So lets pray & hope that rain will come soon and all problems gets solved.

Faridabad Roads

Due to heavy rain since last two months all the roads of Faridabad city have broken from many places and clearly tell the story of corruption. Bad quality of material, wrong tactics in construction of roads and approach to benefit individuals through in whole process are main reasons behind it. Water gets lodged on road and roads breaks downs. Although every city had bad roads due to rain, even our capital Delhi also but media covers the capital but forgotten to do the same for Faridabad. Crores of rupees are spent on construction of roads but none of the government organization cares for disposal of water when water gets lodged on roads due to heavy rains. It is not only government agencies who are responsible for it but every individual citizen is also responsible for the same. Every shopkeeper, home owner, etc. make a encroachment in front of his shop and home and cover the sewerage drains and waste water exit points which is the main reason of water lodging.

 

I request every individual to come forward which gives us a comfort at last.
