Water Problem in HUDA Sectors

Due to increasing temperature and heat, demand of water has gone up very high in all sectors of HUDA as well as other areas. Few reason behind water shortage :-

- Long power cuts (Situation has gone from bad to worst due to long power cuts because tube wells do not have hotline power supply)

- Wastage of water (on cleaning of cars, corridors, house, etc.)

- Decreasing of ground water level

- Too much over extraction

- Non implementation of Rain Water Harvesting schemes

In last few decades we have wasted water like anything and neither follow the rules nor taken the initiative to recharge ground water. Due to modernization we have created big concrete jungle and left no open space so that ground water recharge takes place when rain comes. Actually rain water harvesting has not been implemented with strict enforcement. The best way to recharge the ground water is to make provision for rain water harvesting in every household and it must be a condition when government agencies give their permission to construction the house. For existing residential areas government should invite NGO and RWA to start applying method of rain harvesting.

Still if we did not awake and don't stop wastage of water in coming 2-3 decades we may not have the water and the city will become like a desert.

Parents say won't pay hiked fees - Delhi - City - The Times of India

As per the news on Times of India website today that most of the unaided school in the capital has increased the fees for the 2010-11 session and asked the parent to submit the fees. However Directorate of Education is saying that school needs valid needs to form a valid Parents Teacher Association and need clearance of this body before charging incremented fees. While Private school federation is saying their is no such act and circular of Directorate of Education is illegal. All India Parents' Association (AIPA) has decided in its meeting that they will pay fee only as per old rates. Schools federation is saying that they have to pay increased salary, and due to rising prices the expenses have increased while everybody knows that how much money is being paid to staff in private institutes.

In above scenario parents do not have any clear path known to them that what should they do. It has become a political games between Parents Association and Schools federation and in between the common parent is facing trouble and don't know he should join which group.

Although education standard in private school is good and their result also very good but all these private school are not working as social welfare organisation but has become a field of profit for investor who put their money in to this sector. All school gets income tax benefit and many other tax benefits because school/education is counted as social responsibility but now it is totally commercial. Today the Education is commercialized. Big investors are investing large amount of money in this sector to maximise their return.

I think government must be more vigilant against private bodies who are earning big revenues and make a grievance centre where parents can lodge their problems/grievance against any school.

Badarpur Tree Plantation

Due to construction of Badarpur Flyover and Metro Rail in already congested area of Badarpur, Jaitpur, Mahipalpur, Palla, AAli village, Badarpur Border the pollution level is very high on NH-2 Mathura Road. You will hardly able to see any trees between border to Mohan Co-operative Industrial Area because the area is highly commercial and very crowded.

In view of increasing pollution tree plantation drive must be taken in Badarpur Area. Trees can be planted on the gap between road, road sides, open area and peoples residing and working in this area must be motivated to plant and maintain the greenery.

Faridabad to Delhi

Yesterday I traveled From Faridabad to Delhi Domestic Airport via Karan Singh Shooting range road , Greater Kailash and found that foot path is being constructed on both side of road near shooting range and open space around tree is left, which is a good construction practice. In Greater Kailash and Airport area it is very hard to see trees, you are surrounded by all the concrete jungle. Instead of cutting the trees it is better to relocate the big trees if possible.

I think in view of Commonwealth Games some greenery must be maintained near airport area as it will not only help in maintaining environment and reduce pollution but also increase beauty of area.

War with Maoist

Yesterday Maoist killed 76 CRPF (Central Reserve Paramilitary Force) Jawans in Chhattisgarh in a planned attack by surrounding them. Almost 1000 maoist equipped with automatic rifles, guns, explosives, landmine's trapped the CRPF company in a dense hilly forest area. One Deputy Commandant and Assistant Commandant also killed in attack but the number of maoist killed is not known. The level of attack shows the problem of Naxalism. Even if government retaliate it could not kill all maoist (thousand of peoples) because they are you own peoples so means & ways should be researched to convert maoist into good citizens.

After this big attack on forces, state and central security forces needs to fight in a completely organised, planned and equipped manner. The strategy must be devised so that security forces have least causalities. The state and central security forces needs to be strengthen their co-ordination and steps must be initiated to gain support of local peoples. I think local young persons should be recruited by security forces to fight the naxalist because it will be a two way attack on them, first it will enable state security forces to under local scenario and local power to fight secondly it will stop recruitment sources of naxalist. State and Central government forces must improve their intelligence units to gain knowledge about naxalist / maoist strategy and their sources of finance, arms, camps etc.

Women's of maoist areas should be provided help so that they can start some local work/handicraft work/self employment business which will support them financially and improve their confidence in government and peace. Also schools, hospitals and roads must be developed to bring development in naxal areas.

Also compensation to family of all the soldiers must be given on priority basis and no politics should be played on the Sacrifice of soldiers by any political party.

Delhi Metro Rail started Inderlok-Mundka Route

Today DMRC inaugurated its Inderlok Mundka line. DMRC has given it a name of Green Line and It is the first line of Delhi Metro which is using standard gauge instead of broad gauge and by starting of this route on standard gauge, Delhi Metro becomes the only Metro in the World having trains on both gauge standard and broad. Now the Metro network has expanded to more than 100 km.

The length of Inderlok Mundka route is 15.1 KM and will take 29 minutes in comparison to one hour travel by road. Residents and peoples of Paschim Vihar and Punjabi Bagh will be able to take benefit of this route. Now the peoples of Delhi must come forward to ride on metro and take off their vehicles from the road as it will not only save their time but will reduce the pollution in city.

By use of standard gauge metro has saved a good amount of money and DMRC team must be congratulated for it. Hopefully before Commonwealth Games will be able to start Badarpur, Gurgaon & Airport routes. Also DMRC must maintain strict safety measures and highest and best quality of construction.

Best of luck to DMRC team.

India and China

We knows that China is more strong in comparison of India at current scenario on various scales like defense, economy, population. Also growth & development in China is more than India and because of its strong position China is trying to push back India on many matters like International Nuclear Clearance, increase strength of its relation with Pakistan, Hidden support to the forces fighting against India like naxalist, communist, terrorist etc.

The main power of China is its strong economy so to defeat the China India should take some necessary steps to increase its pace of development and strengthen the Indian Economy. Some of the steps as per my views is

- Decrease Corruption by strict and fast enforcement of laws

- Initiatives to retain talent pool (education young peoples) from going abroad and also call back the all good Indian Doctors, Engineers & Scientist from foreign countries

- Steps to strength its ties with Anti-China Forces but not at the cost of bitter relations with China

- Up-gradation of Army, Navy & Air-force equipment, technology, arms, ships, fighter jets, nuclear power etc. on war scale

- Also steps must be taken to give more strength to our ties with Sri-Lanka, Nepal, Bangladesh and most important Pakistan

- Also India should tries for permanent seat (veto power) in United Nation Organization

- Must provide support to all Indian standing for their recruitments in International Organization especially Finance and social welfare organization

Internally I will say from President of India to common labour class person must work for 3 hours extra in a week at their own to increase the pace of development.

Flyover & Metro at Badarpur Delhi

The work of metro rail and flyover from Badarpur Thermal Power Station to Sector-37, Faridabad is in full swing keeping in mind to complete them before CommonWealth Games 2010. Although it is do not seems to be possible to start Badarpur flyover before Games but i hope that the work will not stop after complete of CommonWealth Games due to unavailability of funds, political hindrances, bureaucratic red-tapism etc.

Now Delhi is only 6 months away from CommonWealth Games. The development of Metro and Flyover at Badarpur will increase the prices of Real Estate in Surrounding areas of these two projects. As peoples working in Delhi will definitely interested to living in and around Delhi. Start of Metro and Flyover will decrease the traveling time to and from Delhi so the demand for surrounding area will be more and price rise will be seen.

Madhya Pradesh to allow women work two shifts in factories - Hindustan Times

It will be good initiative towards women's welfare but as we know the exploitation of labour in industrial sector is not satisfactory. Is Government has planned / designed any safety measures for the same. What system, procedures and other things should be provided and completed by industrial house before inviting women's in night shifts. Ways to protect the dignity of women's must be maintained before any organization is allowed for 2nd shift of working of women's at its place

Also our social system will have a great impact of it because generally Indian Families are headed by Sr. Male of the house, it will definitely increase more burden on him keeping in view the status of unemployment situation in country. The decision will have great impact on our social and family system.

Pepsi accused of over extraction of groundwater - India - The Times of India

As per the news on Times of India website the state government of kerala has made a report regarding over extraction of ground water by Pepsi at its plant in Kerala. It is good that now the state government is reviewing the working of Pepsi Plant for over extraction of ground water. But the response of company to media is that is using innovative recycling and recharging techniques to save water and brought down the usage by 60% in last few years. Also the company has received environment and water management awards.



I would only say that company should be allowed to operate but must be on the strict norms that it will invest its resources for recharge of water not only in plant but also in surrounding areas of plant. The performance and result must be verified at regular intervals. Also Pepsi should try to spread awareness in that area for improve of environment and provide funds to the local NGO's and start some project to increase ground water levels.

Government to table nuclear bill amid fierce opposition- Hindustan Times

As per news on Hindustan Times News website government is going to present nuclear bill in parliament today which gives benefits to nuclear equipment / material suppliers in case of any accident. Simply in case of any Bhopal Gas Tragedy like accident the equipment / material supplier will only have limited amount of liability and civilians / law of land will not be able to penalize the supplier crossing that limit and may be bill also says that it will not be a criminal offence. The bill is commitment made in 123 civil nuclear agreement with USA. Ultimately in case of any problem civilians will be not able to get any compensation and in view of political interest at last the compensation will be paid from the Government of India pocket means complete loss to the nation and whole profit to the suppliers.

If this bill is a requirement of 123 civil nuclear agreement with USA then i will say the interest of nation is not protected in 123 civil nuclear agreement and US negotiators has surely dictated it and able to manage / save the interest of America.

I strongly oppose it.

Save Aravali

Their is a news on Times of India website that government is going to recover amount of rehabilitation from offenders. It is really good if government successfully recovers amount of rehabilitation from the offenders who created havoc in this area for the own individual interest. But it is a known fact to local peoples that most of these mines are under the command of political leaders and main source of income for them. Due to political power in their hand i think it will be not possible for the government to recover the amount from offenders and later on matter will thrown in to cold bag.

But even now if mining is stopped and environment laws are enforced strictly and rehabilitation project are implemented on war scale then we will be definately able to save the environment of Aravali Hills. Also all the existing residential / commercial / industrial set up in aravali are must be forced to take measures to stop the pollution generated by them. Also some environment tax must be imposed on all the setup existing in aravali hills and additional charges must be imposed on new projects asking permission to operate in these hills.

Metro to Manesar on the Cards (Around town)

As per the news on Indian Express website Captain Ajay Singh Yadav, State Finance Minister, Govt. of Haryana announced in his budget speech on Wednesday that Government is planning to extend Metro to Manesar in addition to extension of Delhi Metro to Faridabad. He mentioned that linking of Bahadurgarh with Mundka border is also under process and Gurgaon Delhi Metro link is near completion.

The expansion of Metro in nearby areas of Delhi will increase connectivity and reduce traveling time for Delhi for the people living in surrounding areas of Delhi. It will definitely increase business / service sector scope the city. Metro will also contribute to control increasing level of pollution in NCR region.

Hope that after completion of Commonwealth Games infrastructure projects will not put in to cold bags.

It is very important to complete the project on time as it saves taxpayers money.

Another student commits suicide for separate Telangana

Few hours back i read in news that one more student at Osmania University committed suicide in support of creation of separate Telangana state. Reason behind Suicide of students is motivation/links/false impression in mind of students created by few people that they will have better life prospect after creation of Telangana but I think it is not true as it will lead to wastage of taxpayers money. More Public money need to be spent for One Chief Minister, his cabinet & other ministers security, infrastructure, pay & allowances and support staff required. Also Chief other bureaucratic staff required for separate state. More chances of corruption.

It is sad that political peoples have involved the young generation (students) for their malign interest and greediness for power.

Badapur Flyover

The construction of flyover from Badarpur Thermal Power Station, Delhi to Sector-37, Faridabad covering Badarpur, Delhi Haryana Border, Jaitpur crossing is in full swing. It seems that government is trying to complete the flyover very soon. The contractor company executing this work HCC is a very well known company. This company has constructed the well known Bandra Worli Mumbai Sea link bridge. After looking at the speed of work and progress of last 2-3 months i am hopeful that the flyover will complete before scheduled date of completion.

Parallel to it construction of Delhi Metro is also going in Mohan Co-operative Industrial Area at Mathura Road NH-2 Highway.

But in both project it should be kept in mind that quality should not be compromised and precautions and safety measures should be followed to avoid any accident during and after period of construction as some accidents had already taken place at Delhi Metro construction site.

After Start of Badarpur Flyover Jam problem at Badarpur border will solve and peoples commuting between Delhi and Faridabad will not face traffic jam problem. Also it will save lot of time and Flyover will contribute to better development of the surrounding area.

Maoists' ultimatum to Govt: free our leader or face consequence- Hindustan Times

As per my previous article of Feb. 18, 2010 I mentioned that more news of attack may come from Naxalist/Maoists as the government has started a multi strategy based action plan plan to remove naxalism/Maoism. So the news of threat by Maoists to Government shows that they are frustrated.

Attack of Maoist on Security Forces and threat of more attacks/consequences shows that they are feeling heat of Government Action Plan especially after recent arrest of senior leaders of Maoists. They may increase their attacks on common peoples and also abduct government officials/celebrities/politicians etc. but government should not come under their pressure in view of these tactics and must take hard decision in view of abduction cases.

I hope that Government Action Plan to remove Naxalism/Maoism has been designed keeping in mind about welfare of poor/tribal people and also remove/decrease gap between rich and poor. It must be made sure that during security operation innocent peoples especially women and childrens are not harassed because that will sow seed future of future problems.

Government must develop Schools, Hospitals, Infrastructure in naxal areas to win confidence of common people. Also better agricultural loan, small industry loans, local/custom trade loan must be provided to the peoples of naxal areas so that these peoples do not engage in naxal activities. It is worthwhile if good agricultural equipments/training is available in Maoist areas. Government vacancies in naxal belts must be filled on priority basis. Help of NGO's must be taken to improve condition of tribal's.

BSE Sensex Reached 17000 Mark

Today BSE Sensex reached 17000 mark and Dalal Street is moving fast. Major gainer of today are Jaiprakash Associates, Tata Power, Reliance Industries, NTPC and Mahindra & Mahindra because of positive post budget sentiments and news of Greece economy bailout and extra austerity measures totaling 4.8 billion euros ($6.49 billion) Greece's cabinet.

FII sentiments seems positive and fresh buying are seen in market.

I am hopeful that BSE sensex will reach 20000 mark in this year only but before buying anything check the individual analysis of share.

Also monsoon will have its own impact on market / investors sentiments.

National Animal Tiger

Since our childhood we are taught about National Game, National Flag, National Bird, National Flower and National Animal. Yes Our National Animal is TIGER. But unfortunately and careless attitude of everyone had created a big problem for this species. Due to poaching only few hundred tigers remained in the country. Last Year Prime Minister himself intervene after media news that now no tiger is present in famous sanctuary 'Sariska'. But now it seems to be a old story and news whose everyone has forgotten. Some important questions are

1. Latest status about tigers in Sariska?

2. How many peoples who done poaching/illegal trade of Tiger skin/bones/etc. sent behind bars?

3. What is the total progress regarding rehabilitation of Tigers?

4. Is there any increase in numbers of Tigers.

5. How much funds used for Tigers conservation.

To save this endangered species break your silence, show your support, talk about it, blog to save them and again force the government to review the progress.

Commonwealth Games 2010 Readyness

The deadline of Commonwealth 2010 Games is coming near but the arrangements are still long back behind completion schedule, number of hotels are not enough nor the stadiums are complete even after pushing more and more extra funds and manpower. Beautification of City do not seems possible. Cleaning of River Yamuna despite orders of Supreme Court and spending of hundred crores of public money is not upto the mark. Arrangement of volunteers, who will support and guide visitors, officials, players, etc. during games. Overall improvement /awareness to change attitude of Delhities for games.

Also security and traffic arrangements during the games is a biggest challenge for the Government. Some of the alternatives in mind of administration agencies which not seems to be feasible are :

- Paying Guest accommodation for visitors at Residential places

- Even and Odd Number vehicles will remain off the roads turn wise

- Holiday/Off on particular days in government / big private corporate offices area wise during games on the basis of games schedule

- Training to students/engagement of NGO's etc.

- English speaking course for employees of transport department like DTC

- Course/Tips/Motivational material for government employees to not ask for bribe during games period from any foreigners and deal with them politely while maintaining Rules

- Air security through helicopters and may be engagement of army/paramilitary personals at last movement

In last I wish Best of luck to my country to successfully host games.
