SOLARISATION OF INDIAN RAILWAYS


Few years back I was think about solarisation of coaches of Indian Railway for which recently I come to know about the Indian government initiative. Railways are starting it as a pilot basis. Roof top of some trains will be converted / covered with solar technology so that some part of power requirement of rail will be used / supplied by solar power. I think it is a long term investment which will not only protect environment but increase level of comfort for passengers also. The big hurdle in it is high cost of solar cells but if we keep harming environment for cheap and saving money ultimately it will cost our coming generations health, life and most important the existence of humans on this planet. Not only railways but automobile industry must look towards the use of solar energy for cars & two Wheeler's.
I request everyone to WAKE UP, WAKE UP FAST as by wrong doings of humans has already detorated the environment.

Glaciers are melting, mostly metro cities all over the world are polluted in terms of water pollution, air pollution, noise pollution.

AT LAST BEST OF LUCK TO INDIAN RAILWAYS FOR THIS SOLAR PROJECT.

CNBC-TV18 - Tata Grp to provide world's most affordable water purifier

Let us wait and watch

What type of purifier it is and whether it removes TDS or not or it just remove dust/bacteria/etc.

But cheap price will be the main tool to attract customer.

Drinking Water

Quality of Drinking water in Faridabad is very bad. Due to so much extraction and failure to recharge of ground water, environmental pollution, etc. are some reasons behind this problem. Water supplied by Municipal Corporation tubewells are having too much TDS (Total Dissolved Solids ) and I am not aware what steps MCF implements to purify the water as it is not possible for every common family (aam aadmi ) to purchase RO (Reverse Osmosis) Plant to for treatment of bad water so he is drinking this bad quality water. In summers water borne disease is very common due to increase intake of water and every one is bound to consume the water supplied as the availability of water in summers is a very big problem. In some areas water do not come for whole day and in some areas comes at specified times.

Every individual must come forward in association with NGO & Government to solve the problem.

Ganga & Yamuna

The Ganges in Varanasi

Ganga & Jamuna are famous rivers of India. As per hindu methodology they are treated as Mothers. Bbut currently all the rivers are too much polluted and on verge of disappearance.

Ganga

Ganga is so much polluted due to Inorganic and toxic effluents discharged by industries, cremation of human bodies on banks of rivers and practice of throwing dead bodies, flowers and other articles into river makes it dirty.

The cleanliness drive / plans for river by government has failed. For Ganga river the Ganga Action Plan had been started in 1986 but according to some sources it 39 percent of primary target is reached. Ganga passes through approximately 29 cities and 70 towns and every city and town throw its waste in river while it is industry waste, garbage, sewerage, or any other thing.

Yamuna / Jamuna

Yamuna is currently on verge of disappearance because of extensive flow of industrial waste, sewage, dumping of other waste of cities. The most dangerous threating area for Yamuna starts from Delhi. In previous decades sewage of city is used for agricultural land but as all agriculture land has been occupied for residential purpose so the sewage flows into Yamuna.

As the river drifted into Faridabad its burden of sewage and industrial waste kept on increasing and the spectacular failure of the Yamuna Action Plan began to unfold. Although court had directed the government for cleanness of Yamuna and Yamuna Action Plan had been launched but it is not showing any result and no one is monitoring it. Crores of rupees has been spent in the name of Yamuna cleaning but results are zero.

Steps Required to save Our motherly Rivers

- To make Ganga, Jamuna and other rivers POLLUTION FREE a central empowered committee must be formed on urgent basis which consisting of representatives from Government/Judiciary /NGOs/Local Peoples/Environmentalist/Scientists etc.

- Deforestation in Himalayas

- Eco Friendly tourism

- Time bound Plantation programme near the rivers

- Whenever any dam is created its impact must be analyzed and corrective action should be implemented before the dams start working

- Enforcement of various laws which stops flow of industrial effluents and sewage from cities and towns into rivers

- Continuous Progress Report must be provided to public / Judiciary about cleanness, plantation and action taken against law violators

- Mass awareness campaign against Pollution

- Media must highlight pollution saving tips

- Creation of website for saving rivers

- Political Parties must make pollution a part of their political/election agenda
