Wind-Farms–Some Captures…

Wind Farms-The major source of generation of electricity of about 1500 MW, which is about 20% of that of India ,And these Wind-Farms are found in and around Kanyakumari…And they look very lovley

On my way to Kanyakumari I saw many Wind-Farms and there is a place called Aralvaimozhi (also spelt Aralvoimozhi) ,a small settlement in Kanyakumari District, Tamil Nadu.
Aralvaimozhi have the largest wind farms in the world. These wind farms generates about 450 MW of electricity.

Enjoy Some of the Captures I took..

The wind speed at this place is 20-25 km and available throughout the year.And it is peak during  July-August when the wind energy is expected to be higher and last normally till October every year.

 

Some Rare and Endangered Species found In Assam

As I am so in Love with Wild Animals and Coming from a Place like Assam admiring Nature makes much more sense I guess..So When I see the Wild getting depleted day by day I can’t stop myself but think how Humans have become cruel day by day then again I realize we Human now-a-days don’t even care for other Humans and the Question of caring animals doesn’t make any sense…What Say?

India-Population,Pollution and Corruption

The Other day I was watching the movie PoliceGiri starring Sanjay Dutt and Prakash Raj,By the way let me clarify this post is not on reviewing the movie instead it is on the issues mentioned on the post title…But before that let me say something–Sanjay Dutt who is playing the Role of a DCP has said so many dialogues on Moral value and Ethics,I somehow felt that he really don’t have any shame..I mean the guy who is accused of illegal activities and is in jail(I know I know it was his job to say such dialogues)..

Ok enough about the movie–Now in that movie Prakash Raj The Villain put up a dialogue–“India mein teen cheeze control nahi kar sakte-Population,Pollution and Corruption” meaning “In India 3 things can’t be control Population,Pollution and Corruption“,So by now all must have understood the meaning of my Post Title.If we give a closer look then these 3 things really can’t be control…So let me explain these 3 things precisely and their effect in India:-

1.Population:-As defined by wiki Population is a summation of all the organisms of the same group or species,who live in the same geographical area,and have the capability of interbreeding.And the species I am talking here is Humans.In India Population is around 1.27 billion and our Rival China is leading 1.36 billion according to 2013,the second most populated country in the world.The figures show that India represents almost 17.31% of the world’s population,which means one out of six people on this planet live in India.Although,the crown of the world’s most populous country is on China’s head for decades,India is all set to take the numero uno position by 2030.With the population growth rate at 1.58%,India is predicted to have more than 1.53 billion people by the end of 2030.So,Indians get ready to cheer up for India…and now you say can it be controlled,I know it can be controlled but I don’t know how.For more information please visit here.

2.Pollution:-Generally speaking Pollution is the addition to the ecosystem of something which has a harmful effect on the Environment.One of the most causes of pollution is the high rate of energy usage by modern,growing populations.There are 3 main types of pollution Air Pollution,Water Pollution and Noise Pollution.

India in terms of pollution is not lacking behind placed among the top 10 worst environment polluters.The 10 countries with the worst global footprint were Brazil,The US,China,Indonesia,Japan,Mexico,India,Russia,Australia and Peru.

As per Pollution Index for 2013 Lucknow(UP) is ranked as the most polluted city in the World.Here is the report.Seems like another milestone for India

It is not that we cannot control Pollution,but with increasing population we are left with no choice but to meet our needs at the cost of nature and hence any measure taken to control pollution will have very little or no impact at all.

3.Corruption:-Writing about Corruption in India I feel like I can write a book on this topic.As per Transparency International’s Corruption Perception Index(CPI) India is ranked 94th out of 176 nations surveyed,even China-The Most Populous Country is way above India with a rank of 80.With around half of the citizen of India having paid a Bribe or was asked for a bribe,still we are not able to find the problem of Corruption.We all say it lies in inefficient Government but who makes the Government inefficient…

Scams and only Scams is on the news for North to South,East to West with Government looting hundreds of crore of rupees every year and we common people let it go just by saying ‘Chalta Hai Yaar’…So,I think with this attitude even Corruption is very hard to stop….

Ending the Post with a Cartoon for all to Enjoy.. 🙂

Man vs Wild

With all the recent cruelty on Wildlife I guess our future generation will never know that there exist a term “Wildlife” and this makes me very sad.

“The quicker we humans learn that saving open space and wildlife is critical to our welfare and quality of life, maybe we’ll start thinking of doing something about it.”-Jim Fowler

The above quote really depicts the message very well as what we Humans are upto and what we should do,I am happy that there are technological advancement around us but at the same time all these advancements are made at the cost of Nature which does not go well with me,what I believe is that there should be sustainable ways in which we carry on our development without overlooking the Wildlife or the Natural resources.

Likewise the crime on the society is on the rise sameway the cruelty on Wildlife and Natural Resource is also on the rise but we fail to notice that as we are only focused on our development and how can we make our life better.But,let me remind you Nature and Human Development goes hand in hand and without nature being gracious enough to us we are just helpless.

To illustrate how Wild animals feel,I have made this Cartoon to convey the message on their behalf as they can’t speak out their pain at all.Hope all like it and gets the message clearly.. 🙂

It also remind me “The Law of the Wild Says-Kill only when you are Hungry” and I am very much sure that the day is sure to come when these Wild will be Hungry for the Land,for their Nature and we Human will pay the price…
