Delhi Traffic a problem

This post is to make people understand the problems which can reduce the traffic problem in Delhi.

The National Highway No. 24 which in Delhi starts from Nizamuddin Bridge is the life line for the people residing in Eastern part of Delhi. For past 18 years I have been traveling on this road. The construction of the new Nizamuddin bridge has reduce the traffic congestion on this road to an extent of 45 %. But the major problem is the policy of the Delhi Police which is not to make thing easy but to make the things more problematic for the people. The road leading from Nizamuddin Bridge to Noida More is having heavy traffic in the peak hour of morning and evening. The construction of the lope roads made people think that the future will be bright but in vain, the problem is still persisting. When the traffic merges at the Noida More intersection there is a heavy rush and long jam (photo attached).

Traffic jam from Commonwealth Village till Noida More

The reason for this jam is the Red-light which has been installed at this point. The heavy traffic which is coming in flow has to break down at this point. The Delhi Traffic Police has a reason that it has been installed to keep the traffic in good flow and also to help the people cross the road. But this was not done in past three years. Now when more people have started to use this free flow road the red-light has been installed. This is only to create problems for the people. For pedestrian the government could have constructed a foot-over bridge which could have avoided that long traffic jams.

Don’t know how many people will agree with me to the reason that traffic problem of Delhi is created by the Delhi Traffic Police, vote and lets make a survey for the same!

Most popular leader of India at present!

This is a post to make the people understand about their leaders and to vote for their leaders popularity.

The political arena of India is going through the worst phase since independence. In the 65th year of it independence India has the rise in one name i.e. Anna Hazare.

This person has made the people come together on the slogan of Corruption Free India. His agitation at Delhi Ramli Lal Ground made the government to rethink on its stand on Jan Lokpal bill.

The popularity graph of Anna is a serious threat for the present politicians. It this race of popularity the politicians are using gimmicks to gain the mileage for the forth coming elections.

L K Advani announced Rath Yatra against corruption. He wants to en-cash this word corruption which has been the reason for getting mileage for Anna and his team. Advani has been dreaming to become the Prime Minister of India since many years. He has taken two rath yatras which have become the reason of communal hatred in India. He gave a call for demolition of Babri Masjid, which was a political hand in glove of all the political parties in India. But the construction of Ramjanam Bhoomi Mandir is still far of sight, which BJP has always being using in its election manifesto to woo the majority of Hindus of India. Now as the educated Hindu has lost its interest in Mandir issue the BJP of which Advani is a veteran leader is planning for a new gimmick to get to the limelight.

Congress is all the more in worst problem due to the scams which are unearthing on daily basis and making problems for the party. SoniaGandhi is being considered to be a mother of all the corruptions as her leaders are involved in the biggest scams India has seen since the day of independence. Dr. Subramaniam Swamy has been blogging about how Sonia Gandhi has been creating problems for the India masses and what her motive at last is. The people of India are not getting the real picture of the corrupt politicians.

Narendra Modi the Chief Minister of Gujarat is also racing for the popularity. He just finished a political gimmick of ‘Sadbhavana’ fast lasting for 72 hrs. He is hoping to have a make over in regards to his mistakes which he has committed by removing the IPS officer Sanjiv Rajendra Bhatt. He in his report has named the present CM Narendra Modi to be responsible for 2002 Gujarat riots. He has been carrying a placard that Gujarat is a model state and he has made it possible to develop.

Now it is the time for the people to come forward and understand what is right and what is wrong for them. To fool the common public is not an easy task but the politicians will make all possible moves to remain in the main lead.

Earthquake in Delhi at 6.8 richter scale.

This post is to inform about Earthquake in Northern India.

An Earthquake shook the Northern India at about 18:10 hrs .

The epicenter of this earthquake was in Sikkim state of India bordering Nepal. The intensity of the quake was 6.8 on the Richter scale.

The tremors were felt in the whole Northern India. Slight tremors were also felt in Madhya Pradesh, state of central India.

Tremors in Delhi were felt for about 5 to 6 seconds. Casualty was reported from Nepal, Bihar, Sikkim, and some central parts of India. This is another earthquake felt in Delhi within 7 days.

Who will be the next Prime Minister of India?

This is a post to discuss about the next PM of India for the next general election in 2014.

The convassing for the Prime Minister candidate has started in India even when to election are two yeas ahead.

The two major parties happens to be the Congress (I) and the Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP). Both these parties have been fooling people of India in the race to get the ruling chair at Delhi.

Congress hs been advocating that youngsters should come into politics. This is not the reason which really the Congress wants but behind the curtain is the motive to help Rahul Gandhi to climb to the chair of the PM. He is young and the son of the chairperson of Congress-Sonia Gandhi. The lineage of Rahul is from the first PM of India Jawahar Lal Nehru as he is the grandson of Indira Gandhi. The hero worship is in the roots of the people of India!

The veteran leader of BJP L K Advani is dreaming for this post from day one but in vain. There is a conflict between the members of BJP for the candidate for the post of next PM. Sushma Swaraj and Arun Jaitley are the strong contestents on which the party is divided. The new name for the post of PM from BJP is of Narendra Modi the present CM of Gujarat. Modi is being supported by fanatic Hindu group RSS of which BJP is an off shoot. Advani is being pressurised by RSS to withdraw his name from the race, which is still to be decided if the greed subsides.

The CM of Bihar Nitish Kumar is also in the race for the post holding the placard of Bihar development.

Surprisingly the two ladies are also joining the race Jayalalitha CM of Tamil Nadu and and Mayawati the CM of Uttar Pradesh. Jayalalitha was sentenced by the Tamil Nahu High Court in corruption charges but she filed case in Supreme Court in 1996 (case is still pending) and she is enjoying the post of CM, now setting eyes on the chair of PM.

Mayawati is a name which is related to number of corruption chages but the chair of the PM is where all ends up.
The candidate for the post of PM will be decided by the UP Assembly polls scheduled to be early next year. Will it be Rahul Gandhi or Mayawati from north India.

Still lot of time is left but the reason behind for early canvassing is the fear from the side of Anna Hazare and his team, who have gathered immense popularity among the people of India on the issue of removing corruption from India.

To really fight the deep rooted corruption in India one has to join active politics and if Anna and his team form a politcal party then Arvind Kejriwal should become the acrive candidate for the post of PM.

Whom you think can be the right PM for India?

Anna Hazare has to join active politics!

This post is prophesied regarding the change in the Indian political system. Anna and his team will have to join active politics if really they are planning to see a Corruption Free India.

As Anna Hazare is now conducting press conferences from Ralegan Sidhi. He is voicing against the proposed yatra announced by L K Advani against corruption.
L K Advani's proposed route for Anti-Corruption Rath Yatra

Advani is a veteran leader of Bhartiya Janta Party. He has been using his voice through traveling in the country in a rath (carriage) and motivates people on the political issue. He started his first “Rath Yatra”–an air-conditioned van decorated to look like a chariot–from Somnath in Gujarat. He traveled a larger part of North India in 1990. This was the main reason of communal violence which India had to face and the after effect of this tour was the demolition of Babri Masjid.

Now to gain political mileage Advani is again planning a Rath Yatra in the name of Anti-Corruption. He has seen the power of Anna voicing Corruption Free India and he just wants to encash this slogan for the next general elections. BJP has been fooling the majority of India for the construction of Ram Janambhoomi Mandir at the disputed site of Babri Masjid. Now, the majority has understood that the construction of the Mandir is not possible and the BJP has been playing with the emotions of the people.

Anna has to be careful in this regard and finally he and his men have to join active politics to make India Corruption Free. Masses have faith in Anna and his team and the time is coming when Anna and his team have to finally put their heads together and think to become a part of active politics. To putout the fire you have to use water and when the fire is big then you have to get to the root of the fire wearing the proper suite.

Natural water bodies being filled in Amroha

This is a post to inform the water conservation organisation around the world about the filling of the natural water bodies in Amroha, Uttar Pradesh, India.

India is facing the problem of water. Since many years the government is propagating to use the means to conserve water. In small villages and town the people are educated dig man made water tank where rain water conservation is possible.

Water is most important ingredient for life:
  • Drinking water is not available to 20% of the world's population.
  • The 40% population of the world is not having sufficient water for adequate living and hygiene.
  • 2.2 million (plus) of the population of the world dies every year to the reason of diseases related to contaminated drinking water.
  • It is estimated that by 2050, water scarcity will affect 7 billion people out of total 9.3 billion.
  • The condition in India is much alarming as we have 16% of the world's population to which only 4% of the fresh water resources are available.
  • The availability of the Per capita fresh water in India is declining from 5,177 cubic meters in 1951 to 1,820 cubic meters in 2001.
  • The situation is pathetic in both Rural and Urban areas e.g. in Bangalore water is rationed twice in a week, and in Bhopal it is for 30 minutes a day
  • If this situation persists then the situation will be that two out of every three people on earth will have water stressed condition in the year 2025.

Condition in the rural areas:
  • Women in the village have to walk to a distance of 2.5 kms to get to the water resource.
  • The wells which are dug have poor quality of water which is saline dirty and has turbidity.
  • The young girls are not able to attend schools as they are being used to fetch water for the whole family.

Benefits of Water Harvesting
  • Conservation of rainwater recharges water table and keeps it stable to the need of the population.
  • The man made water resources which are used to conserve rain water are easy to access.
  • These water bodies are used for irrigation throughout the year as water is available in these tanks which improve the condition of the villagers.
  • These water conservation tanks are considered to be social temples.

Technical methods to conserve water:
Rainwater Harvesting:
This is an easy way of conserving water. It can be done through collection of water at the rooftops. This is easy source of water which can be used all the year round if stored properly.
There are three technical methods of rain water harvesting such as Catchment, Conveyance and storage.

Historical Water Bodies:
Every town and village has traditional water body which is left over. This water body can be reused easily.

Ponds and small water bodies should not be used as dumping grounds of sewage and other wastes of the town or the village. The government should deepen these ponds with the help of dragline machines. Any waste like garbage or any other thing should not be dumped into the ponds.

Condition in Amroha, Uttar Pradesh, India
This is much required and the need of the hour. But in Amroha a small but historic town about 130 kms towards west from the capital region of Delhi the situation is much alarming.

There is a pond Panvadi Talab (Figure 01, Google map). One can imagine the dimensions of this natural water body which has been along three other water bodies Kushak Talab (Figure 02, Google map) and Lakha Lokhar Talab the source of water for the town. Lakha Lokhar Talab is no more as the land mafia has filled it up with the span of time for their selfish motives. (Figure attached)
Google maps image (Figure 1)
Google maps image (Figure 2)

Now only two ponds are remaining Kushak Talab and Panvadi Talab. On my recent visit to this town gave me a shock as the Panvadi Talab is being filled and new building are being constructed over the reclaimed land. This is serious matter and crime against conservation of water bodies. The Uttar Pradesh government is least bothered. The water is flowing on the road as the pond is being filled for land by builders. This is a strong lobby in Amroha as one journalist was killed in Delhi by the builder lobby of Amroha.
The Panvadi Talab (Pond) is being filled (Fig. 1)

The Panvadi Talab (Pond) is being filled (Fig. 4)
The Panvadi Talab (Pond) is being filled (Fig. 5)
The Panvadi Talab (Pond) is being filled (Fig. 6)

  1. What can be done in this regard?
  1. Should not the people who are doing all this be punished severely?

I appeal to the water conserving organisations to take up this matter and do needful in saving the left over water bodies in Amroha, Uttar Pradesh, India.
