How 3 hours of rain created Havoc in Chandigarh (Tricity)

Mostly, we make lots of claims about the progress of India; however, in reality, we still lack many basic things. Our cities are least prepared for the rains and it was evident from just 3 hours of rain in the tri-city area of Chandigarh. In many parts of the Chandigarh, water enters the homes and vehicle can be seen floating the water at many prime locations. Mostly, we imagine Chandigarh as a modern town which is designed well to face all such troubles. However, unplanned growth in and around the Chandigarh city is creating lots of problem for its residents. When such a well-planned city is not prepared for just 3 hours of rain, then what we can expect from other unplanned cities of India.

In India, urban planning is very poor and we don't modulate our increasing cities. Our government doesn't stop illegal and unauthorized developments around the cities which sometimes include construction on the catchment areas of rivers and lakes. Due to this reason, every year flooding in Indian cities is becoming a common story. I think nobody must have forgotten about the heavy rains and floods in the one of the biggest city of India, Chennai.  I hope that we will start learning from our mistakes and create better cities which are capable of sustaining heavy rains.

Below, you can watch some of the video of Chandigarh city after the rain which clearly shows that how badly we need to change our city planning.


Hideous Crime of Gang Rape and murder of Teenage school Girl from Kotkhai Simla

When we hear such news then the first reaction is usually how this can happen. I myself belong to Himachal Pradesh and therefore, know this state very well. It is mostly a peaceful state of hardworking people especially women. The Gangrape was done to a teenage school girl who used to travel two hours daily to reach school. She was a hard-working girl who wanted to achieve something in life through her studies but sadly some ill-minded people wasted her beautiful life.

In Himachal, large numbers of students including girls travel many KMs to reach school because of none availability of schools near their homes. These are very hard working students who reach their school every day by facing all challenges of weather and heat. When such a heinous crime is done to such a student then it is a big same on our society who can't save innocent girls like her who want to move up in life through studies. 

Moreover, the role of Himachal police is under doubt who is still not able to solve this case and many people blame that they are shielding the real culprits. The victim belonged to a poor family and this doesn't mean that justice should be denied to them. The Himachal government has taken a good step by giving this case to CBI and now we can hope that real culprits will be behind the bars soon.  

Does there is any fight in the Rashtrapati (President) Election 2017?

In a few days, elections will be held for new President of India and with this tenure of present President Pranab Mukherjee will come to an end. Though, Indian President tenure can go up to ten years if present President is reelected; however, no political alliance showed interest in giving an extension to Pranab Mukherjee. BJP lead NDA announced the name of Bihar CM Ram Nath Kovind as their candidate for president. BJP wanted to have consensus on his name; however, Congress lead opposition parties announced the name of former Loksabha Speaker Meira Kumar as their candidate.

However, here everyone knows that majority of votes are with Ram Nath Kovind and even JD(U) is going to support him. Therefore, we don't see any fight. Now only a miracle can tilt the actual results. It would have been much better if all political parties decided the president candidate unanimously which would have saved the unnecessary tussle between the political parties. BJP is looking president elections as an opportunity to raise its candidate to the highest position and also score with Schedule caste voters for making first President from the category.

At present both the candidates are busy with their political campaigns and they traveling to different states to meet MPs and MLAs. These elections will 17th July and counting will be done on 20th July. Therefore, we need to wait for some time to see who will finally succeed in these elections. Will it be BJPs victory as predicted or Opposition candidate may surprise us?


Simple Zero Electricity Air Coolers made from waste plastic bottles

Summer are very hard because the temperature can go as high as 50-degree Celsius in many parts of the world. Under such harsh temperature, many people in countries like India, Bangladesh, and many other Asian countries lives without electricity and under tin roofs. Some volunteers in Bangladesh came up with a unique idea to provide relief to this people by creating an eco cooler which works without electricity and it is made from waste plastic bottles.

By adopting these eco-coolers, we can provide a great relief to many-2 people living in the hot parts of the world because by using eco-coolers, we can achieve a 5-degree drop in room temperature. Also, we can use lots of plastic waste which may otherwise cause the problem to our environment. The good point of this concept is that it can be put into action at very low cost by using the waste material and once implemented it requires zero or no maintenance cost.

For every development, we can't depend on the government and anything which can work without electricity must be encouraged. Below, you can watch the full video to learn how to make this eco-friendly cooler and use it.


Why no one understands the difficulties of common man?

Common people are main victims of all issues present in the world because it doesn’t matter to rich and while poor extra benefits from governments. Common people face all ill problems our system while rich bypass them with help of their money and poor don’t need any system. You can go to any government office and you will see that situation is very bad.  You need to visit the office number of times to get your job done. Many offices still use the old technology and don’t maintain the record well. Further high level of corruption make it even difficult for common man to get his work done.

The system always put maximum pressure on the middle class, they pay the highest tax, they work maximum but in return, they don’t get any facilities. Governments either tries to take care of rich or extremely poor, they only give common people some hopes. This story is repeated in every year’s budget where a common man doesn’t get much. Loans are given to rich at very low interest and that without any security while common man struggles to get a small loan at the high interest. All situations are made so bad for the common man that he can’t rise much. Most of which he earns go back in buying his dreams.

At the end,  a common man is left with nothing. This is the saddest approach of all governments and it looks that there is some conspiracy is going on against the common man. Mostly, a common man doesn’t ask for much, he only asks for few things but he even doesn’t get those. With time, life just keeps on becoming difficult and more difficult for him. This is not the story of a single country; however, everywhere we see the same pattern where few elite are controlling the whole system. One of the main reason of common man’s this situation is a divide among the society which is further increasing with the time.

Time has come when a common man should understand his power and ask leaders to give him his due share in progress. By creating a so much unbalance in the world, we can’t think of making a good world. So, time has come to address the common issues of common man and provide him all the basic things essential for life.
