SCAMS & SCANDALS

Hi dear ones,

FROM the land of SCAMS and SCANDALS

I am writing this with greatest sadness that India has become the land of scams and scandals.

Why I am saying so?

If you are an Indian your question will make me laugh; if you are non-Indian then it will be shameful for me.

Every country, every nation has its share of scams and scandals then why I am so worried about INDIA !?

Because

Ø       Its my country.

Ø       I feel cheated by the leaders I chose.

Ø       I feel disappointed that we failed to give nice and efficient system.

Ø       I feel image of my country is being damaged by these.

Ø       I feel with every scam and scandal, money we pay in taxes is used not for development but for severe criminal act as cheating the country.

Ø       I feel these scams and scandals are affecting the judiciary of my country in very wrong way.

Ø       I feel people of my country will lose confidence in government and the system.

Ø       I feel anger when I see bureaucrats and leaders are manipulating the system.

Ø       I feel there must be a system OR forum where I / anybody can call the leaders for open discussion.

BUT………….

 

when I think back I feel these are impossible things because we lack “ WILL “ to do things RIGHT.

hi dear ones,

What is Water Hearvesting

It means capturing rain where it falls or capturing the run off in your own village or town.
And taking measures to keep that water clean by not allowing polluting activities to take
place in the catchment.

Therefore, water harvesting can be undertaken through a variety of ways

* Capturing runoff from rooftops
* Capturing runoff from local catchments
* Capturing seasonal floodwaters from local streams
* Conserving water through watershed management

These techniques can serve the following the following purposes:

* Provide drinking water
* Provide irrigation water
* Increase groundwater recharge
* Reduce stormwater discharges, urban floods and overloading of sewage treatment plants
* Reduce seawater ingress in coastal areas.

In general, water harvesting is the activity of direct collection of rainwater.
The rainwater collected can be stored for direct use or can be recharged into
the groundwater. Rain is the first form of water that we know in the hydrological cycle,
hence is a primary source of water for us. Rivers, lakes and groundwater are all
secondary sources of water. In present times, we depend entirely on such secondary
sources of water. In the process, it is forgotten that rain is the ultimate source
that feeds all these secondary sources and remain ignorant of its value. Water harvesting
means to understand the value of rain, and to make optimum use of the rainwater at the
place where it falls.

hi dear ones,

Android mobile AND Windows mobile

What is Android?

Android is a software stack for mobile devices that includes an operating system, middleware and key applications. Android is a software platform for mobile devices, powered by the Linux kernel, initially developed by Google and later the Open Handset Alliance. It allows developers to write managed code in the Java language, controlling the device via Google-developed Java libraries. The Android SDK provides the tools and APIs necessary to begin developing applications on the Android platform using the Java programming language. Applications written in C and other languages can be compiled to ARM native code and run, but this development path is not officially supported by Google.

 

Windows Mobile is a mobile operating system developed by Microsoft that was for use in smartphones and mobile devices, but is being phased out to specialized markets.

The current version is called “Windows Mobile 6.5”. It is based on the Windows CE 5.2 kernel, and features a suite of basic applications developed using the Microsoft Windows API. It is designed to be somewhat similar to desktop versions of Windows, feature-wise and aesthetically. Additionally, third-party software development is available for Windows Mobile, and software applications can be purchased via the Windows Marketplace for Mobile.
