    I am impressed with this blog. Surprisingly I challenged myself trying to create one like this too, but not sure how to do it. What is this “blogging” software? Is it difficult? Is it necessary to be well versed in computers to make a blog? I am hoping to put together a similar blog for my essay writing writing website. Can the platform be meshed into a current website?

    Mr. Sharma,

    I tend to agree with you when you say…
    “…the logjam continues in the absence of the government offering and the BJP agreeing to a middle ground”

    Has the government offered any middle ground yet? BJP would surely get back to debating the issue if the arbitrary allocation of coal-blocks to private companies is cancelled and an investigation is ordered to look into the issue. We can let the PM continue for some more time. The ball is in govt’s court.

    Coal scandal: Prime Minister’s Office wants action against defaulters?

    http://www.samachar.com/Now-PMs-Office-pushing-against-coal-defaulters-mjbsKIabgji.html

    New Delhi: With the government being accused of a defective coal policy
    that may have cost the country thousands of crores, a range of companies who
    were given coal blocks for steel or power plants are being investigated. A
    report by the state auditor has faulted how 142 coal fields were allotted,
    alleging a lack of transparency that gifted windfall benefits to private
    firms.

    Mr. Vinod Verma,

    Your comments do not seem to go by the present situation. The Congress has made its habit not to accept its mistakes. Even in JPC and PAC, the Congress does not allow other opposition members like BJP to say anything against them. what is the use of JPC and PAC? Have you seen any time the Congress accepting its failures and the Tag oif Corruption. They always guve explanations. Who are the to criticise the CAG? If they criticize, it goes wqell with them and if Opposition criticizes, it does not suit them. Why then not to destabilize the Parliament,. No where in any Forum may it be the Parliament, JPC or PAC, did the Congress fair well. They aree dependent on the support of undependable MULAYAM SINGH YADAV. This Copuntry has awaken niow and it is not the biirth right of only Gandhi Nehru family to rule this country. This Congress Party has looted this country and all Corrupt Politiciuans are in the Congress. It has become a Bread and Butter of Congress toi ruule the country by proxy and take benefits. This is not going to be in future. You should also open yoyur eyes. These Congressmen do not allow the JPC and PAC to function and even the parliament. Do you see how the Congress Minister Mr. rajiv Shukla asked the Presiding Officer toi dissolve the Parliament? Then how can you say the BJP is not allowing Parliament to Function? It is the Coingfress that is avoiding to take blame.

    Hi everyone

    Am on travel… to Mohan’s favourite countries but no harm in posting from a hotel lobby.

    a) Fact of the matter. even small countries in South East Asia beat us in infrastructure. The mother of all– China beats us hollow.

    b) As already predicted by me, Mulayam Singh has a good chance of becoming the PM. Afzal Guru and Kasab can now welcome a 100 year life well lead, 22% inflation would be back and the cabinet will have goondas of all shades including kidnappers soon. FDI would soon retreat and kidnappers in hinterland may well hold entrepreneurs to ransom. Congress style crony capitalism is back in full measure.

    c) Even In Thailand and HongKong resentment against Muslims is growing. The problem is basically because Pakistani travelers and citizens end up breaking laws here and inciting local Muslims to claim their Muslim identity above their national identity. Thailand has separate prayer rooms for Muslims in most hotels nd even at the airport ( when most travellers here only pray for one thing !).etc etc.

    The locals commented that we are Buddhists, hindus and Christians… why no seperate rooms for us?

    I guess it is an extension of the pampering of Muslim minorities world over which causes resentment. Just becasue a grand mufti in Saudia pronounces something, the Indian minoity commission and government will forget human rights and just be extra deferential.

    NDTV is a past master at this kind of fake opinion polls, snap surveys, exit polls and what not. They also are experts, with their fossilised psephology, at “seat adjustments”, so that the congress is not unduly alarmed. If he had given the true picture of the dynasty getting 2 digit seats, I bet SOnia Gandhi would have cancelled her foreign trip and summoned the doctors from US to come here and examine her.

    You can see how they have manipulated the seats if you observe the state wise figures.

    The duty of the political parties is to govern India with just administration and equitable distribution of the wealth of India. The rule of Parliament and conduct is to enable this. When the ruling party, leveraging the majority commits attrocities like the one under discussion, you should do whatever is possible and stop the Government from undoing this. BJP is just doing this.

    Sonia Gandhi’s meeting Sushma Swaraj shows that she is one hell of a confused lady, who lacks the traditional Indian cunning and consequently only goes by what her domestic servants tell her to do.

    Only two days ago, she ill-advised her MPs to “stand erect” and fight the BJP. Now she herself bends and meets a lesser functionary of the opposition!

    As for Vinodji’s ;lament, the BJP has a strong point that there is no pooint in a two day or three day debate, because things will remain as they are after the debate.

    Last year, the congress bitterly opposed the formation of the JPC and forced the entire opposition to block the parliament. Subsequently the government yioelded and the JPC was formed. Now the same congress has destroyed the JPC by paralysing its working. The same holds for the PAC, in which the congress had shown unshakeable faith vis-a-vis the JPC.

    Therefore, Pathakji, you are skating on thin ice.

    Don’t cancel coal blocks, levy high royalties

    http://blogs.timesofindia.indiatimes.com/Swaminomics/entry/don-t-cancel-coal-blocks-levy-high-royalties

    Opposition parties want Manmohan Singh’s head for supposed corruption in 57 coal blocks that were allocated, not auctioned. The government is under pressure to cancel the allocations. That would be politically, legally and economically wrong.

    Politically, it will look like a confession of crookedness. Neither the CAG nor anybody else has produced any evidence of kickbacks. That makes it very different from the 2G case.

    The CAG estimated that 2G spectrum auctions might have fetched Rs 1.86 lakh crore. But that was a criticism of policy, not evidence of kickbacks. Former telecom minister Raja was indicted not for failure to auction spectrum but because he perverted the first-come first-served policy into a first-served then-come policy, favouring friends.

    Sahai helped brother’s firm sign MoU with friend Koda

    http://www.sunday-guardian.com/news/sahai-helped-brothers-firm-sign-mou-with-friend-koda

    nion Tourism Minister Subodh Kant Sahai used his friendship with former
    Jharkhand Chief Minister Madhu Koda to get a memorandum of understanding (MoU)
    signed between the state government and SKS Ispat, a steel company, in 2008.
    Sahai’s brother Sudhir Kumar Sahay was a senior functionary with SKS Ispat in
    2008, a fact admitted by the Union minister on Friday. But SKS Ispat was never
    serious about setting up the Rs 3,174 cr integrated steel plant of 1.1 MT
    capacity, as evident from the cancellation of their MoU last year for not making
    any progress in the project. SKS Ispat instead used the proposed project to get
    coal blocks allotted by the Prime Minister’s Office. Subodh Sahai helped them in
    this.

    Subodh Sahai wrote a letter to the Prime Minister on 5 February 2008,
    requesting “personal intervention” to allocate coal blocks for steel plants in
    Jharkhand and Chhattisgarh much before the MoU was signed for the Jharkhand
    plant on 7 August 2008. Sahai, while justifying his letter to Prime Minister
    Manmohan Singh asking for coal blocks for his brother’s company, said it was
    done with the “interest of his state (Jharkhand)” in mind, as the proposed steel
    project would generate employment for the local people and contribute to
    Jharkhand’s development.

    I met Mr Sahai once. Seemed a fairly decent guy. He did mutter that he had a inconsequential portfolio then– food processing..

    It would be interesting to recall the first meeting of Shailendra and Raj Kapoor, Shailendra as a college student was at a Kavi Sammellan narrated a poem written about the creating of Pakistan and RaJ Kapoor ( tehn helping his father in the Prithvi Theatres) was impressed enough to get to him and offer him the opportunity to write ongs for Aag, his first film that he was struggling to arrange funds for, the idealist Shailendra turned to the then “non-entity” Raj Kapoor and tyold him that his “kala” is not “bikau”. But being Raj Kapoor, he yet persisted and gave his address to Shailendra and requested him that if ever he changed his mind then he could come to Bombay and contact him.
    A few years later, afetr getting married adn having to realise thathe had to feed a family, he reached Bombay and requested Raj Kapoor, who immediately offered him to write the song that became the biggest hit song of the 40s, “barsaat mein, ham se mile tum sajan”.
    The financial mess that he came into was a direct consequence of his unrestricted drinking and that let him depend entirely on the financial skulldruggery of his Production Manager,durin the making of Teesri Kasam, who did not miss the opportunity to siphon away the money for his own gain.

    So what will they do ?. Naroda Patiya will not help as elections in Gujarat are not far -off and any hype and gloating on that will do more harm than good. …some announcement on the ” Game Changer” … that does not enthuse ….or his more promising sister ….. may be . but that will finish off the “Game- changer’s ” game .

    There was no scam in allocating coal mines according to our PM and as per
    Chidambaram there was no loss as no coal was fined. I am surprised why
    CBI is filed FIR against five companies who were allotted mines.

    Bechare Salman Khurshid sahab has confessed:

    Govt losing ‘communication battle’: Salman Khurshid
    http://www.dnaindia.com/india/report_govt-losing-communication-battle-salman-khurshid_1736735

    He says: “What has gone wrong is that coal has been given to someone without charging anything for it. We will charge that person a much higher amount. Are you willing, therefore, to pay much more for the steel you use for your home or the electricity that you consume or for that matter for the cement that you use your home?” Khurshid said.

    If that’s the reason why the private companies have been allotted coal-blocks arbitrarily, why stop at that. Give away the rail, bus, IT and customsdepartment and what not – it would all be in common man’s interest as they won’t have to pay for it.

    US daily Washington Post calls Manmohan Singh a ‘tragic figure’

    http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/india/US-daily-Washington-Post-calls-Manmohan-Singh-a-tragic-figure/articleshow/16262667.cms

    WASHINGTON: Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has been described as “a dithering, ineffectual bureaucrat presiding over a deeply corrupt government” by a leading US daily.

    In an article “India’s ’silent’ prime minister becomes a tragic figure”, the Washington Post said Manmohan Singh helped set India on the path to modernity, prosperity and power, but critics say the shy, soft-spoken 79-year-old is in “danger of going down in history as a failure”.

    When Hitler came to power in Germany, he proscribed all political parties excepting the Nazi Party; then he amended the law to end all forms of accountability through audit of finance. It is to be hoped that Manmohan Singh and his ministers are not trying to adopt this method to avoid struggling with the cumbersome parliamentary system of a functioning democracy.

So with these recent developments, has politicians got some change of heart and mind regarding SIMI/ IM or still that Votebank policy will prevail??

    Dear Citizen;
    I am not sure about these two wrongs.
    Nevertheless, disruption of parliament is another situation. I believe, this disruption is for the first time, even after humongous scams, but coalgate appear to be mother of all scams. If BJP thinks that it can take maximum advantage of situation, by disrupting parliament, so be it. Do you think, congress would have not adopted same strategy? sadly you are mistaken here. Is everybody playing by rules?? No Sir. 2G, Adarsh Society, CWG and many other scams were made redundant by referring them to committees, where, by a cobbled majority of votes( Purchased votes) government is continuing. Admitted so much by PM as compulsion of coalation politics. Why public should suffer for the benefit of congress’ desire to be a ruling party and be sole arbitrator of doling favors, mostly to itself.

    Wa-Po article is fairly shallow in its content and criticism about MMS.
    We know the issues – but they are not the ones that Wa-Po makes them out to be.
    As an example – the article talks about lowered economic Growth. Scratch a little deeper and you will realise the co-relation between global macro-economic situation and investments. Not much of which is MMS making. Plus there is this issue of role the economic growth plays (or more aptly, doesn’t play) in alleviation of rural poverty.
    Same with FDI in retail. Americans are betraying their impatience and expecting MMS to do what was done during the Nuclear deal. Do we want to repeat that ?
    Our polity , in general, and UPA as a part of it has tonnes of issues . Much of them are left out by the Wa-Po article.
    In comparison, Paul Krugman’s articles and blog at NYT offers much better insight and depth compared to the Wa-Po article.
    Tom-tomming the Wa-Po article metaphorically rhymes a lot with “Tinke Kaa Sahara lekar behna” .

    On a different Note, did we notice Mr. Modi’s troubles have acquired a far serious tone ?

    You have only focused on the slowdown of the economy

    starts his article with this paragraph –
    “Prime Minister Manmohan Singh has been described as “a dithering, ineffectual bureaucrat presiding over a deeply corrupt government” by a leading US daily.”

    ManMohan Singh who is supposed to be carrying an image of a clean, non corrupt PM has allowed scams to
    happen under his nose and did not try to do anything to
    stop those and the reason he give is ‘ compulsion of coalition’.

    Regarding Modi, I had said on this blog few months back that we will keep on hearing more anti Modi

    Not much of which is MMS’s making—–

    In 1992, even though economic liberalisation was begun by Narasimha Rao and he installed MMS in the FM gaddi precisely because he would bend whichever way PVN asked him to bend, still our media geva all the credit to MMS, because PVN was not liked by Sonia Gandhi.

    Now for the last eight years MMS is the PM and he has brought the country to a sorry pass. And still you say ‘not much of which is MMS making’?

    Two points here.
    First – What has this got to do with the topic under discussion ?
    Second – MMS was *already* credited long before Sonia Gandhi could gain strong foothold in Congress.

    “Now for the last eight years MMS is the PM and he has brought the country to a sorry pass. And still you say ‘not much of which is MMS making’?”
    Shenoy – just so you don’t miss what was under discussion here.
    “Wa-Po article is fairly shallow in its content and criticism about MMS.We know the issues – but they are not the ones that Wa-Po makes them out to be. ”
    Surely you understand English Language well enough both in Syntax and Semantics to not have missed out the difference. So, why the urge to deliberately obfuscate and deflect ?

    I think in your hazy way of thinking, you forget the central issue of our discussion: Manmohan Singh is a tragic figure, a lame duck prime minister (!), an under-achiever and Sonia’s pet poodle.

    I understand you have severe comprehension problems, but the rest of us here on the blog have very focussed, MMS centric discussions. They may infuriate you, but don’t lose heart, may be Baby G would bring enough cheer to befuddled minds like yours.

    That is if he gets a chance.

    How can the insolence of Washington Post be tolerated ?. When the PM expects that the country that should remain “Khamosh” on his “Khamoshi” , then how can a foreign newspaper write on his failure to discharge his duties.
    He said … “there is no question of my resignation” .. why should there be ? Is he accountable to the country ?… no ..but to the woman who appointed him ? I recall he has said in the past that he shall make way for Rahul Gandhi if he comes. So he can consider quitting… only if that situation arises…..none other.

    Former Police Commissioner Ved Marwah has stated on TV ( CNN-IBN ) that he was prevented from Submitting his Report on the Role of the Delhi Police during the Anti – Sikh Riots of 1984 , that all papers and records he collected , were destroyed.
    We hope the Honb’le Apex court shall take note of this admission and intervene and issue Notice to Ved Marwah , Union Home Ministry , and all concerned . We do hope it may happen so that Justice is done to the Community which suffered at the hands of the Government of that day.
    The Supreme Court has been pro-active in taking action on the complaints filed on the Gujarat Riots, some of which I recall were suo-motu and we are sure that it will take similar action as it does not have double standards like the poitical executive..

    Whereas the reactions of the Congress Party to the Washington Post story ranged from dismissive to critical , the PM and his Office took it very seriously and immediately reacted to it.
    It goes to the credit of the US Newspaper that it drew a reaction and the PM broke his “Khamoshi “. That is the difference between Indian Media and the foreign Media.
    For the PM of India , the Indian Media … after all Indians read it, is of no consequence , however the Washington Post read primarily by Americans cannot be ignored.

    This problem at Kutch. The place, Lakhpat which is mentioned in the article is about 100 KM from where I live. A nice small place not very far from border of Pakistan, there is small Gurdwara where I had eaten langar few times.

    Gujarat government has put a freeze on land holding of farmers because of the huge scam/fraud going on there since very long time. Gujaratis, Katchis and Sindhis are the main community who have been affected by this freeze. Sikhs affected are very few in number. In brief this is how this works. :
    People there bribe Government officials to become farmers. Than agriculture land is bought at the price of peanuts. After few years again babus are bribed to convert that land into Non agriculture -NA- and is sold at huge profit. This is going on since many years and I know this because I know few people personally who are involved in ths fraud. Some of them are very close to me. About five years ago government woke from the slumber and put a freeze on these lands.
    15-20 years old files are being reopened and are being scrutinized. I know some people who are ready to pay even crores to clear their name. It seems some people of vested interested are giving communal color to this issue to put pressure on Gujarat government.

    Surely, Ramayana chronicles just one battle of the period of
    “spread of the Aryan civilisation through the central-southern parts of the subcontinent as these areas progressively came under Hinduism.”

    However, that is looking at Ramayana as a Historical Document.

    Devotees read it and interpret it differently, particularly if the devotees have been told to do so, together with supression by force of all other versions of the epic. The problem starts when a discussion takes place between a devotee and a historian, then no common ground exists upon which a sane discussion can take place, it soon degenerates into personal abuse, etc.

Current historians have a point of view. Don’t expect future historians to be very different. After all, you need a bias and point of view to make sense of Data.

    Baby G has not made a single policy statement till date. And neither will he.

    Akbar has told the trutgh that Baby G does not have it in him.

    Read that Mrs Clinton has recommended to US Congress that the Haquani Network be designated as a terrorist organization.

    Haquanui network is an open subsidiary of the Pakistani military. Will be interesting to see what happens in Pak/Afghanistan, and of course India (vis a vis terrorist attacks in Kashmir).

    NEW DELHI: Disclosures that ministers and their kin may have benefited from UPA’s controversial policy of allocation of coal blocks without inviting bids further fanned Congress-BJP hostilities over Coalgate on the concluding day of a monsoon session which was consumed by the political combat.

    Why do I yearn for a Lal Bahadur Shastri in every politician ? Am I a day dreamer ? Has Lal Bahadur been rendered irrelevant in the present times ? What have we done to get the political leaders we have today ? Can idealism survive only with economic hardship ? Can prosperity and idealism not walk hand in hand ? The strength of Indian society when contrasted with the West lay in the institution of a stable family , …but has not love for the family also become a major cause of the our biggest bane….financial corruption.
    Some questions I keep asking myself …or are these questions themselves irrelevant . That is the feeling I get sometimes.

    Gujarat: How the state authorities connived to protect – Kodnani

    From: The Indian Express

    State of connivance

    by P P Rao : Fri Sep 07 2012, 02:22 hrs

    The most disturbing finding in the judgment of the trial court in the Naroda
    Patiya mass murder case is not only the active involvement of a prominent
    senior BJP leader, Mayaben Surendrabhai Kodnani, who hatched the conspiracy and instigated the rioters to commit the crime, but the fact that she was sought to be shielded by the state investigating agency by making every effort to see that her involvement did not come on record. Two questions arise here: first, can the leaders of a ruling political party be allowed to indulge in crime against members of another religion? And, second, what is the role assigned to the investigating agency of the state when a serious, cognisable offence takes place?

    Unlike other parts of India, in Gujarat slowly but surely the perpetrators
    of riots are being convicted. If Modi is involved in this than he also
    will be caught and punished accordingly.

    MOTIVATED ARTICLE

    Reply | ForwardB.V.SHENOY | 07-Sep-2012

    A meaningless recounting of the legal position in legalese. Justice was denied to the Godhra train burning victims too by the central government by the railway minister, Laloo Prasad ordering and getting a Banerji commission report, tailor made to subvert justice. Justice Banerji, as the court itself, failed in his sacrosanct duty of doing justice by giving a fake report, of the victims burning themselves! I don’t think Mr. P.P.Rao spoke against this subversion of justice by a justice himself. Therefore, this article, is, by all intent, a biased, partisan and motivated piece of meaningless restating of the law.

    Please check your facts

    Dear Mr Shenoy, The Godhra Verdict has been out for over a year, 11 people were awarded the death penalty. Please check facts before making pronouncements. This is in the interest of informed debate. Thank you, Zubin Shroff

    9th Sept., 2012
    Mr.Zubin Shroff,

    It exactly proves my point that the Banerji commission was a fake commission created to give a tailor made report and this pseudo justice Banerji obliged the chara-ghotala charred Laloo with this sham report blaming the Hindu pilgrims for setting themselves on fire from inside!

    Hindu Terror

    The Mirror Explodes

    Hindu terror is a reality, yet India refuses to utter its name

    Smruti Koppikar, Debarshi Dasgupta, Snigdha Hasan

    Unfinished stories, goes an old idiom in Ajmer, find their denouement in Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti’s shrine. Perhaps, unfinished investigations do too. Two-and-a-half years after low-intensity blasts ripped apart the courtyard of the centuries-old shrine, the Rajasthan police arrested three men—Devendra Gupta, Vishnu Prasad and Chandrashekhar Patidar. Gupta, an RSS worker, was suspected to have bought the mobile phone and SIM card that triggered off the October 2007 blast in which three were killed. Till their arrest on April 30 this year, the story narrated by the investigators, lapped up by the establishment and reiterated in large sections of the media was that the Ajmer blast was the handiwork of jehadi terrorists……..

    A New Colour

    The NIA’s latest chargesheet in the Samjhauta Express blasts rules out a jehadi angle, confirms the Hindutva terror angle

    The bombers and conspirators are ex-RSS activists. One accused, Sanjay Joshi, was murdered.

    The suspects in jail are Kamal Chauhan and Lokesh Sharma. The rest are absconding.

    Jama Masjid was recced, but the train was seen as an easier target

    MUSLIMS ARE MULTIPLYING IN HUGE NUMBERS IN ASSAM
    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
    Assam chief minister Tarun Gogoi has said he “100%” believes Muslim population is increasing in his state because the community is “illiterate” and breeds more. “It is because of low literacy, illiteracy. Illiteracy is there–most Muslims are illiterates. Every family has six, seven,eight, nine, 10 members,” said Gogoi in an interview to news channel CNN-IBN

    This is not Namo uvaacha.

    पर्यावरण प्रदूषण एवं
    हमारा दायित्व

    5 जून 2013, लोकताक पावर
    स्टेशन, मणिपुर

    एक मशहूर हॉलीवुड फिल्म में कही गई हैं “बड़ी शक्ति के साथ आति हैं
    बड़ी जिम्मेदारी”। हम इंसान इस धरती पर सबसे बुध्यिमान प्राणी हैं। हम अपनी बुद्धि
    और ताकत से बाकी जीब जन्तु, पेर पौधे और सारी विश्व को प्रभाबित करते हें। इसी ताकत
    के अभिमान में कभी कभी हम भूल जाते हें पर्यावरण के प्रति अपनी जिम्मेदारी।
    अपनी लोभ के लिए हम खुदकी फैलाई हुई प्रदूषण से घटी क्षति को अनदेखा कर देते हें। प्रगति
    के नाम पर घटी इस अपराध के कारण आज हमारा वर्तमान फंसा हें बिनाश के दलदल में। फैली हें कितनी ही जानलेवा
    बीमारी, हुयी है प्राकृतिक सम्पदा में
    अभाव,
    प्राणीओं के अवलुप्ति, आबोहवा में अननुमेय बद्लाव। इस समय मौन रहना और चुपचाप सब कुछ सहना कायरता
    हैं। अब समय आगया है की हम समझे हमारा उत्तरदायित्व।

    इतिहास गवाह हें, जब जब मानव सभ्यता
    प्रदूषण के चपेट में आई हें, बिज्ञान ने हमें राह दिखाई हें। जब घोरों और बैलों पर
    बरने लगी अत्याचार, मोटर-गाड़ी से मिली राहत। जब हर घर में कोयलें की धुएँ
    से दम घुटने लगे, गैस और बिजली ने हमें राहत की साँस दी। बिज्ञान नें
    हमें सिखाया कम से कम प्रदूषण फैलाए पानी से कैसे बिजली मिल सकता हैं। भारत में जल विद्युत विकास के लिए एनएचपीसी लिमिटेड सबसे
    बड़ा संगठन हें। एनएचपीसी परिवार के सदस्व होने के
    नाते पर्यावरण को सवरने के लिए हम अमूल्य योगदान दे सकते हैं।

    समझदारी और
    जिम्मेदारी से यह काम करना हमारा दायित्व हे जो हम बखूबी निभा रहे हें। बाँध बनाते समय और सुरंग खोदते समय हम ध्यान देते
    हें की पर्यावरण को कम से कम नुकसान हो। एनएचपीसी लिमिटेड देश में पवन ऊर्जा एवं टाइडल
    परियोजनाएं बनाने की भी योजना बना रही है। जैसे जैसे हम नवीकरणीय
    ऊर्जा उत्पादन
    बढ़ाते जेएंगे, दुर्लभ ईंधन
    भण्डारों की बचत होगी और प्रदूषण रहित
    होने के कारण पर्यावरण सुरक्षित
    रहेगी।

    एनएचपीसी बृक्षारोपण
    करके कई इलाक़ा को हरिभरी की हें। वर्षाजल
    संग्रहण , ऊर्जा बचत जैसे पर्यावरण हितैषी कामों में अग्रणी रहा हें। इंटरनेट द्वारा
    बिलों का भुगतान करके और आन-लाईन काम करके हम कागज की बचत करते हें। इससे पेड कटने से बच रहे हैं।

    निजी जिंदेगी में हमें पानी और बिजली
    की बचत के प्रति सचेत रहना होगा। तभी हम अपने और अपने बच्चों के लिए वर्तमान के साथ साथ आनेवाले काल भी खुशहाल बना सकते हें।
