Finally, cars to be rated on fuel economy - India Business - Biz - The Times of India

It is a good move by Government and not only in favour of consumers but for environment also.

And definitely this rating system will improve fuel usage.

I requests to automobile industry to provide their support for this rating.

Other big fuel consuming sectors must be identified and pushed for the same rating system.

Think Green / Save Energy

Recently I received a mail containing speech of Former President of India Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam regarding Power saving. Following are the contents : Please read and implement the steps in your office


Dear ISC Members,

I am presenting a article which came to me in my office email id regarding the Power Saving speech given by Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam. I am writing this resource as it.
a Think Green Initiative
Be the Change you want to see!
To all those who do not TURN OFF their
PCs, ACs & Lights before leaving the office....
Most of use from the IT field do one thing before leaving for the day from office, Press CTRL+ALT+DEL and leave happily. That means your PC is still ON.
One Normal PC in Sleep Mode (Hibernation) will consume 35Watts/hour. Based on this let's do a small calculation.
For One week, 24*7=168 Hours. Of this if we consider that we are working for 68 hours, then the PC is in Sleep Mode for 100 hours a week.
For one month, 4*100=400 hours. In a normal IT office, if we assume approximately 250 PCs are there, 250*400=1,00,000 hours (Sleep Mode), So power wasted in an office in a month is 1,00,000*35=3500KWH or units. If the charge per unit is Indian Rs 6, then totally the wastage value is approximately Indian Rs 21,000.
Here the sad thing is not the money loss to the company but the power loss to the country. (Hope no company bothered about this procedure of keeping the
system in sleep mode)
Apart from the loss to the country, we need to think of the efforts people are putting for producing the power in Mines, Thermal Stations, Hydro Electric Stations etc. If this is to continue, the cost of unit will go up, at one stage, we will not get power even if we are ready to pay any cost.
So, before leaving office, take some time to shut down the PC and do some favour to the COUNTRY
and the organisation.

If you feel that this point is to be considered, forward this to all your friends.

**Source - email received in my Office. I request Editors to Approve this Resource.
So Members, I think we can help our Country at least by doing this favour.


I would like to say that if you can not implement the steps in your organisation please implement it at your own seat, as the individual initiative also makes a big difference.

Energy, a six letters word due to which whole world runs. Each & Everything in this world running only because of energy. From manufacturing of a product to launch of space shuttles, from lighting of bulbs to running of large heavy duty machines, energy is the working force behind every single concept of today world. Because whole world is running through energy, it is required at very-very huge and large scale. Human beings invented different methods for filling different kind of energy requirement like invention of electricity, use of petroleum, making dams etc. and the same leads to many other natural problems like global warming, pollution, danger to many of species of this planet even we ourselves human beings. Now a day’s whole world runs on electric and petroleum energy and the use of petroleum products and generation of electric power creates pollution. Like when power is generated through coal burning air get polluted because of smoke generated in the burning process of coal. When we make dams on rivers, forest gets destroyed, environment imbalance etc. when we runs vehicles, fly planes or use petroleum products to run engines of large machines we again generates pollution. All of the above happens because energy is the required for living life on our planet.

To control all the pollution, environmental problems first of all use electrical and petroleum products needs to be controlled and for this we need to invent the machines, engines, devices, vehicles, etc which runs without energy means runs on zero energy. It looks like that I am talking nonsense at this point but let me clear it Zero energy means a object derive the energy from within itself to run it. In other words all the things working at their own. It will be combination of atoms & electrons research, artificial intelligence, etc. Much Research needs to be carried out for this. If we successful than we can hope planes will fly at their own, vehicles will run without petrol, diesel, gas and bulbs will provide lighting at their own.

In my above article I was not able to clearly present my views but if anyone of you can understand please advise me the changes.

I hope that readers of this article will have some idea after going through the article about my view.
