“When ever and where ever there is a decline in religious practice,O descendent of Bharta, and a predominant rise of irreligion-at that time I descend myself to deliver the pious and to annihilate the miscreants,as well as to re establish the principles of religion,I myself appear millennium after millennium “.
The total fuel bill of railways during the current financial year has been estimated to be a whopping Rs 35,000 crore, of which diesel will be over Rs 24,000 crore as against the electricity bill of around Rs 11,000 crore.
Indian Railways have firmed up plans to harness solar and wind power as part of its move to tap renewable energy in a big way to reduce fuel bill substantially. Read full story in recent article published by Economic Times.

The republic of India gained its independence from the rule of the British on 15 August 1947. Since then, this golden date of 15th August is celebrated as the Independence Day in India to commemorate its freedom from the 200-year-old British government. Happy 68th Independence Day !
Proposed Capital for Andhra Pradesh is proposed to have green building and is to be developed as model green city. Apart from increasing the green cover in the capital city, extensive landscaping, green buildings and usage of renewable energy like solar and wind will be taken up, said the municipal administration minister for AP, P. Narayana.
China, in a major UN climate talks summit in Copenhagen, for the first time decided their carbon targets in 2009. But the new cap will be the first time that the country, which has been choked by smog and other pollution problems due to burning of carbon-intensive coal, has promised to limit absolute emissions. Although, the Chinese officials have not yet put a figure on what level the cap will be.
Former semiconductor factory is now the world’s largest indoor farm, producing 10K heads of lettuce per day.
This Japanese semiconductor factory converted to Indoor Farm uses LED lights and hydroponics to produce lettuce. Farm is lit by LEDs, and the 25,000 square feet operation is producing 10,000 heads of lettuce per day. Per day. Every day.
Because of the high-tech methods used by this indoor farm, crops can be grown 2 ½ times faster than outdoors, with just 1% of the water, and a loss rate of just 10% of the produce (which can be as much as 30-50% of the plant biomass in conventional operations)
In video, plant physiologist Shigeharu Shimamura is showing how a former Sony Corporation semiconductor factory, using special LED fixtures and hydroponics converted to an indoor farm growing massive amounts of food in an incredibly space- and water-efficient manner.
These LED fixtures are ‘tuned’ to emit the optimal wavelengths of light for growth. LED lights were designed to be slim enough that they could fit inside the closely spaced plant racks, while also standing up in the high humidity environment, allowing for uniform lighting to all of the plants.
The farm also uses technology to tightly control the humidity, temperature, carbon dioxide levels, and the irrigation in the growing stacks, which is another key to their success in drastically reducing the water required to grow the plants, while also supporting maximum growth rates.
When coupled with the advanced LED lighting, the operation can make the most of both day and night cycles, producing the optimal conditions for indoor food production.
To take Green Agricultural Industrialization forward, Mirai and GE are said to be working on building more plant factories in places such as Hong Kong and Russia, about which Shimamura says “Finally, we are about to start the real agricultural industrialization,” which will feed 10 billion people.
