About "Rain Water Harvesting in Residential Layouts" topic:

It is common nowadays that every one voilates building bylaws while building houses in layouts. In most private layouts developed for low and middle income groups, no space is left for essential common facilities like parks, schools, play grounds, water supply system, water bodies etc. Roads and drainage systems are built in such a way that the rain water is trained go in to sea ultimately. Every one tries to dig bore well in their plot. There is no space around borewells to rechage them through rain water harvesting system.

It is highly desirable to have a comprehensive Plan for rain water harvesting and maintain water table in residential areas. Building bylaws should be ammended to incosider a proper water balance. If the water table is very low then FSI allowed should be reduced. Individually owned / provate bore wells should not be permitted in residential areas. All existing bore wells and water bodies should be declared as oublic properties and should be maintained collectively by the Association of residents. Rain water should be stored / used for recharging existing bore wells and water bodies.

It is true that the Govt failed to provide sufficient housing and water supply to the growing population. But as responsible citizens, we also need to address the population growth. If not even if the Govt is efficient, it can't solve.
Anjali Bhatia  |  Argues in support of  "our five year plans failed to achieve targets."  |  5 years ago
Land and water is the most prescrious thing in this world. But the human activities are polluting the land and water in such a way that will question the survival of the living things. Land and water can't be imported from any where else. So we...

INDIA IS DEVELOPING IN INFRASTRUTURE,ROADS AND RAILWAYS,WE ARE ABOLISHING SO MANY HECTARES OF LAND FOR DEVELOPING INFRASTRUCTURE BUT IN THE SAME TIME IT RESULTS IN GROUND WATER EXPLOITATION
S. Muralidharan  |  Added idea  "Build ponds in every locality"  |  4 years ago
In the yester years, you would find a huge pond in every village, in addition to wells in each and every house. Water in pond is a perennial source for the households. If the pond is dried up, the entire wells in and around the village also face...
Satish Salpekar  |  Supported idea  "Rain water harvesting"  |  4 years ago
Rain Water Harvesting is the major remedy on reducing ground water exploitation. With rapid urbanization most of the rain water goes down the storm water drain, which flows out of town/city and land below urbanization remains dry. The rain water...

  An old man, staying in a small south Indian town came to visit his son in Bombay recently. The son in his early thirties is a successful businessman living with his wife and son. The father, having spent most of his life at his birthplace, hardly understands a splatter of Hindi or English, forget Marathi. But he doesn't care. 'I have come here to spend a few days with my son and his family. I don't have to go out and socialize with the city people,' he said. But the son is very excited about his father's rare visit to Bombay. He wants to make the best of it. He and his wife want to show him around the city. And yes, the son enjoys those evening hours too, when  he and his father go out and sit in a good bar, sipping their favorite  drink. Last week he was in a very good mood. 'Let's go to a five star hotel's bar tonight,' he told his father. It was a beautiful evening. Talking about everything under the sun they had a few drinks. As usual they were offered some salad, peanuts,...

Six Habits of Merely Effective Negotiators The Idea High stakes. Intense pressure. Careless mistakes. These can turn your key negotiations into disasters. Even seasoned negotiators bungle deals, leaving money on the table and damaging working relationships. Why? During negotiations, six common mistakes can distract you from your real purpose: getting the other guy to choose what you want—for his own reasons. Avoid negotiation pitfalls by mastering the art of letting the other guy have your way— everyone will win. The Idea in Practice Negotiation Mistakes Neglecting the Other Side's Problem If you don't understand the deal from the other side's perspective, you can't solve his problem or yours. Example: A technology company that created a cheap, accurate way of detecting gas-tank leaks couldn't sell its product. Why? EPA regulations permitted leaks of up to 1,500 gallons, while this new technology detected 8-ounce leaks. Fearing the device would spawn regulatory trouble, potential...

Like all other scenarios on the Indian horizon, the Indian judiciary is not a thing to be proud of. When the other two organs of the Government, the Legislature, and the Executive are rotten to the very core, how can the third organ the Judiciary be any better? The scene of the Indian judiciary is very bleak, unhappy, and unholy. Just like the other two organs the Indian Judiciary is also at the lowest ebb of functioning and efficiency.  In these days of the free press, we often get the chance of reading in different publications of national importance and others about the rot seeping into the Lower Courts and Higher Courts, and now eyeing the Supreme Court.  It is interesting to note how, the Supreme Court is often heard passing strictures against the Legislature and the Executive, but it is sad to note that the organ that is trying to infuse good health and new blood in other organisations, is, itself rotting.   When we read in the daily papers that three crore and odd law suits...
