"We are responsible for what we are, and whatever we wish ourselves to be, we have the power to make ourselves. If what we are now has been the result of our own past actions, it certainly follows that whatever we wish to be in future can be produced by our present actions; so we have to know how to act. "
-- Swami Vivekananda

Generate an understanding on the effects of Global Warming

Recently I read an article in the India Today International Edition, only 30% of the households use Gas as a fuel, 50% of India uses Firewood and rest 20% uses other means. At this rate the forests of India are going to disappear.

Some weeks back there was an incident of Leopards straying into the urban areas around the Borivali National Park. Itís not the Leopards but we humans are straying in their jungles look at the rate at which the forests are being usurped by us humans. Each Leopard needs a few sq. kms. as their domain now if there are 33 Leopards (as reported)obviously they need a larger hunting area. This is the same reason why the Tigers of India were nearly extinct.

Solution:
The people of India are to be made aware of the harmfulness of the disappearing forests -

1) Popularize Renewable sources of energy. Like Solar energy, Gobar gas and other feasible means.
2) Awareness among the youth of the impact of denuded forests.

I happened to watch the Discovery Eco-Challenge, it is a hiking event wherein participants from various countries race in the wilderness for the length of 100-200 miles over a period of 10 days. The participants are supposed to carry their garbage (including their faeces) also to be disposed off at the next check point.

A similar event can be arranged for the youth of India on a smaller scale to generate awareness and participate with nature.

Thanks,

Tsunami early warning system
  Posted By: John / Date: 1/2/2005

The massive tidal waves that have slammed into our costs have already taken the lives of many a thousands and left several others with no way of continuing their lives. Sir I understand that the absense of an Early warning system was one of the main causes for massive losses in terms of human life.I also read in the newspapers that the Govt. Of India has decided to buy Tsunami early warning systems from US at $250000.Sir I have thought about this issue for last two days.I do think that India can indigenously develop the early warning systems.For another Tsunami to strike it will take another 50-60 years.

In my imaginations a warning system should contain
1 A platform for holding a pressure measuring device
2 the press. measuring device
3 a sensor
4 a satellite that recieves data from sensor
5 warning systems along the coast

Sir pressure measuring can easily be done using a modified form of Pitot tube which is capable of detecting velocities in all three directions.Using submerged bodies equilibrium conditions we can design the platform too.The remaining can be done by ISRO s facilities.

Thus we can help other Third world countries around us also.

I dont know how you scientists will think about this. But with a group of Geologists, Electronic engineers, Mech engineers I think this idea is feasible.†
