Life in a City

11/16/2021 12:19:00 PM

Bizarre activities at heavy gym machine installed parks, energetic weekend and almost compulsory to mark attendance in restaurants and theaters. About to heart attack on Monday's, striding towards destination and rushing to be No 1 is the definition of life in career magnet hubs. Migration to cities from villages lead nuclear families and almost every member is working seems like sachin Tendulkar in the productivity pitch. Mostly, you are being missed in hometown family functions and fortunately, whenever you appear like id ka Chand, suddenly you become momently Shahrukh khan. City is a kind of recipe that is cooked with ingredients like opportunities, amenities, giant infrastructure and amusement. It connects almost 5 to 6 states. People from different rural and underdeveloped areas are attracted to cities and Metros. People come here to earn and to explore something better. Sheen and money mine called city give them a good career and lifestyle. Suddenly Naive becomes smart and emotional becomes practical. Being rational is a good thing, if you want to survive here and make something big, you must fit into that box. As much as you fit into the box and put effort into your career you will become successful with your good graph career report card. Your own big expensive car and at least a flat are proof that you have become successful and happy. On the other hand, monthly EMI lets you not forget about financial pressure. Big grinning with excellent communication skills, expensive professional clothes, eating etiquette etc. matters a lot, it does not matter your mind and soul are grinning too. And yes, you must speak English language irrespectively you celebrate Hindi divas digitally. Thanks to available English-speaking institutes in the city that are capable to train migrated educated professionals who are not confident with their language and consistent education. There is no doubt that city life gives you a facilitated and glamorous lifestyle. School, colleges, multi-specialty hospitals, best restaurants, theaters and many more. Everything is available at your doorstep. But whatever city gives you it takes too in exchange. Your social life imprisons into cage. You have to revolve around the computer or mobile screen throughout the day and talk like a robot to your clients about what your company programs into your memory. Job targets and long shifts have made life as scheduled. At late evenings you know how’s was weather and if you are lucky you are blessed with window or glass cabin. Your life has become limited to your well-tech and serviced cabin. In the rush of success and achievements, people's lives became stride. They eat fast food and prefer food that can be cooked quickly due to a tight schedule. It does not matter how healthy and nutritious it is and finally ends up with diabetes, cholesterol, heart diseases and many more. They have to take a handful of medicines along with no nutritional value food. Medicine for appetite and medicine for digestion matters simultaneously. On the other hand, Science Researchers and Doctors are busy finding new diseases and viruses. Problems like anxiety and depression, which are rising among people who are living in cities and Metro. Lack of social life, losing the art of sharing and caring leads to these problems. And when we go through these issues, Doctors recommend patient to be involved socially, physical activities and tapping along with medicines. They advise their patients to share whatever you feel with their loved ones. Whatever our ancestors did. They used to talk about their problems in family and lived a healthy, peaceful and happy life. Take out some time for Anger, Cry, fight and laugh with your loved ones which are the way to express what you really feel. I think, behaving like robot throughout the day will not work for long span. Let’s behave like real at least for some time. It is true, to be financially sound is necessary to lead a smooth life but the need of the hour is to find a way so that professional and social life can walk together. Good health is a combination of physical activity, nutritious food, healthy relationships, social involvement, and of course sufficient bank balance. If anything is missing, your physical or mental health affects you and leads a poor and unhappy life. INDIA

Thermocol Earthquake Resistant and good Conservation Practice of Natural Resources

8/25/2021 4:58:00 PM

Earthquake seems like monster when it becomes disaster for nature and man-made things. People become homeless in seconds and the loss of loved ones is a bitter truth which can never be compensated. Science and Technology has always been a sign of hope for human beings and so many problems have found solution by hard work of research scholars. Now, we could think that if earthquake shakes even seismic zone, The home and infrastructure will not destroy, and simultaneously human lives will also be saved. According to Researchers at Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee (IITR) found that thermocol or Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) could resist earthquake forces on up to four-storey buildings. Thermocol could be the material of the future for construction of earthquake-resistant buildings even in the most seismic zone with thermal insulation and could also save the energy required to develop construction materials. The researchers tested a full-scale building and a number of wall elements constructed with thermocol sandwiched between two layers of concrete at the National Seismic Test Facility (NSTF) of the Department of Earthquake Engineering, IIT Roorkee. This was developed under the Fund for Improvement of S&T Infrastructure (FIST) programme of the Department of Science & Technology (DST), Government of India, a release from the Ministry of Science and Technology said on Monday. Adil Ahmad, the research scholar who conducted the tests, evaluated the behaviour of the constructions under lateral forces, as earthquake causes a force predominantly in lateral direction. The project was supplemented with detailed computer simulation of a realistic four-storey building. Supervising the research, Yogendra Singh, a professor at IITR, informed that the analysis shows that a four-storey building constructed with this technique is capable of resisting earthquake forces, even in the most seismic zone of the country, without any additional structural support. The researchers have attributed this earthquake resistance capability to the fact that the EPS layer is sandwiched between two layers of concrete, having reinforcement in the form of welded wire mesh. The researchers said that the force being applied on a building during an earthquake arises due to the inertia effect and hence depends on the mass of the building. Thermocol resists earthquakes by reducing the mass of the building. In this technique, the EPS core and the wire mesh reinforcement is produced in a factory. The building skeleton is first erected from the factory-made core and reinforcement panels, and then concrete is sprayed on the skeleton core. This technique does not require any shuttering and hence can be constructed very fast, the researchers said. Besides resisting earthquakes, the use of expanded polystyrene core in concrete walls of a building can result in thermal comfort. The core provides the necessary insulation against the heat transfer between building interior and exterior environment. This can help in keeping the building interiors cool in hot environments and warm during cold conditions. India suffers a large variation of temperature in different parts of the country and during different seasons of the year. Therefore, thermal comfort is a crucial consideration along with structural safety. "The technology also has the potential of saving construction material and energy, with an overall reduction in carbon footprint of buildings. It replaces a large portion of concrete volume from the walls and floor/roof. This replacement of concrete with the extremely lightweight EPS not only reduces mass, thereby decreasing the earthquake force acting on a building but also diminishes the burden on the natural resources and energy required to produce the cement concrete, the release added.

Adventure of Tenants Around Planet

7/12/2021 4:53:00 PM

Animatedly grin while unlocking a new door, a new normal phase is about to begin, seems happiness is standing outside specially to welcome just next to the main door as despondency has been thrown before the ride to the arrived destination, history is witness, often, fresher’s have always been special at that moment. The “Warrior” named tenant has rented house cleaned, inculcating, tranquility will be maintained. Unfortunately, some dreams never to be a reality, agree, some obstacles can be less if landowner residing somewhere, but in the month-end these uninvited guest has to appear in your door accompanying do’s and don’t, Meanwhile, other tenants are trying to please uninvited guest to persuade their demands by throwing surprises, But they don’t know these people are not ready to give even concession on rent during corona lockdown period, rather they don’t want to know about “wave-off”, inhumanity, but this is the ground reality about landowners, agree exception could be somewhere but not all lucky to have them. Landlord inhumanity stories have been broadcasting on TV screens since covid-19 lockdown, it is the consequence of supposing rental property is their own. Relationships, that had been flourished before corona, seems were breaking in a pandemic. Bhabhi ji and bhaiya ji are prevailing among others. Culinary exchange ritual, prevailed as a love token, suddenly had been stopped, looking at prospective rental issues nor for corona spread, reflects the split personality of a human being. Tenant aka “warrior” wondered about a situation, irrespective of huge housing hunt and R&D, they invented this suitable one and now, corona became successful to make things worse by breaking their relationship with their matched ones. somewhere, was being seen this situation over astrology perspective. Both Paying guests and tenant seem riders of the same destination, on close inspection we found paying guests are tolerant more than a tenant. They have to share the same space with two and somewhere three. Paying guests have to share a kitchen and even a washroom. The bathing pioneer is seen as a warrior. Since their hunt is started by morning and continue till night napping as they fail to get sound sleep due to roommates whispering. Here, smartphones became a weapon to create clutter around the accommodation. Their domestic fights pop out as Line of Control issues and suddenly that issues become successful to bloom political parties in the same constituency. This means you cannot become contemporary “Arjun”, the divine soul popular for his focus. Calling it hell on earth will not go wrong and who they experienced it, will agree with solidarity. Unlike housing hunt and R&D they comfortable to shift frequently, and end up with their bad stars. Spending life as a tenant is going to be adventures, you have to meet with different issues on a daily basis and sudden rent hike is work like catalyst into it. While coming home from professional chores aunty ji always grabbed, irrespective of tread on toes, “Many are prowling around, and asked me about rent, so much demand”. Remaining talk always on phone, “use water under urgency”. It is the place where maintenance is never ended, deep down, retorting is prohibited on apocryphal tales. Day begins with grabbing wire for drying cloth under the sun to car parking tug, competitions are flourished since sunrise. In extreme cases, the alarm is put down before buzz. If you believe in revital benefits, you should definitely take it, to be active in the whole day. Tolerance, Cold War, and hypocrisy are prevalent tools to be a long-lasting tenant. Living being tenant, life seems untold. In fact, life cannot be dragged, rather to live in our terms. By the September month, festivals are about to begin and enthusiasm is on the peak. In most of the cases, Festivals are inexpressive for tenants. Often, “Apna Ghar” is remembered in festival vibes. Having boundaries, preparations are often rather shallow, and incomplete emotions ruin the celebration to some extent. The Audience is often enjoyed the adventures of stars but fiercely leaps to the next channel on television while feeling irritated. Many banks and National Housing Banks are offering lucrative interest rates towards housing loans and Govt. “Housing For All” component would make the dream home true. CHANDIGARH

Sophia Emotions, Technology and Japan virtual tour over less time frame

6/6/2021 4:26:00 PM

“Two minutes noodles” can understand better, how time is precious. As human is being busy, things have been transformed accordingly. Since sunrise to moon arrival, we try to make things easy so that time could be contained. We are not alone in life long drive, but we help each other to reach our destination. It is observed, the human being is curious since his birth and wants to know each and everything that is happening around. To save time, the news channels have started news hundred countdown, where you at least could grab entire news under “ho jao intelligent minto mai” idea. Subsequently, it also helps to sharp your rhyming couplet skill. “ho Jao intelligent minto mai” is one of among inspired rhyming couplet skill. Unlike news headlines, we got to know about our kid's adventures with explanation by our neighbors, as detail news after headlines, I agree with neighbors, some things should be presented in a terrible sprinkling manner. Neighbors are very good source of surveillance for kids as well as your entire family by their right “pair of binoculars”, their services are lifetime and absolute free. Even, without giving instructions, they look forward to provide their services. Apart from neighbors, whatsapp status, facebook and instagram post will let you know about their adventures. And in extreme cases hidden cameras will unfold their apocryphal tales made by them. There was a time where wives were spying on their beloved spouse by making frequent calls. Eavesdropping was also a trustworthy tool for them. It is sheer truth, Problems are the only source of Invention. Now vidio call helps your "Better Half" to be stressed out. But technology doing its work in an unbiased manner, and I hope a virtual reality and augmented reality will do justice equally. It is a very common thing in every element of technology, you can catch up on your target by sitting on well padded couch. In the previous year, some countries banned vedio calls over security reasons, however, later, govt had to permit VoIP apps with guidelines to be used. As a “ho jao intelligent minto mai” volunteer, instead of nicotine beverages, I believe to stir “Vita” powder in whole milk so that entire day I can do intelligent activities. Calling, pop out messages for clients, vedio calls and conferencing are among which we have to do frequently. And in Pandemic lockdown these digital tools proved that importance. Every person is always connected with their dreams emotionally. Where Sites visits for “ Dream Home” was done physically, it is done virtually now, It shows business intelligence. Although the final site visit has to be done by own over emotional perspective. Personally, I believe, all tasks should not be done digitally, for instance, home warming party is done by “Artificial Intelligence”. While written artificial intelligence, I remembered “Sophia” a social humanoid robot developed by Hong Kong-based company Hanson Robotics. Sophia was first turned on on February 14, 2016, and made her first public appearance at the South by Southwest Festival in mid-March 2016 in Austin, Texas, United States. Sophia is powered to display more than 50 facial expressions. Joy, grief, curiosity, confusion, contemplation, sorrow, frustration, among other feelings. The kind humanoid robot visited India for the first time in December 2017. She graced the stage at IIT- Bombay for about 20 minutes where it spoke about the growing intolerance in the world and advised the human race to be "kind" to fellow creatures. It is highly appreciable “Humanoid Robot” has emotions and her advise let me force to think we should express our emotions too with huge intelligence. As we Indians often give a sign of emotions once in a while. India is a culture enriched country. As a sign of respect, we reach down to touch the elder’s feet. “Namaste” is also the Indian form of greeting, to greet someone with a namaste, bring your hands together with palms touching in front of your chest gracefully. On the festival side, we ignite ghee lamp on “DIWALI” with gratitude and try to distribute self-made sweets instead of well-packed chocolates. However, to save our time, we cook “Two-minute noodles”, boiled or scrambled eggs, but in festivals, we believe to cook food by spending many hours to display mouth-watering traditional colorful culinary. In the technology era we love to click photos before eat and promptly post in various digital platforms to lure likes. And with in seconds inundated thumps up are on posted clicks. In some cases we call many to like post and sometimes we show anger to not give thumps up into post, vedio calls are often made too. During my “Virtual Japan Tour”, I preferred “Green Tea” not as a substitute for “Vita milk”. But, in order to feel a foreign tour in “Actual”. Green tea is undoubtedly the most popular tea in Japan. In my close inspection, I found, Japanese are quite shy and conservative as sort of Indians. Japanese greet each other by bowing. A deeper and longer bow indicates respect and while handshake, they practice to avoid eye contact as it is considered rude. It is good to exchange gifts with each other with both hands showing respect. One should be refuse a gift up to three times before finally accepting. On tour, meanwhile, some “Pop-Ups” made me laugh. I had to make sure, I tried to cover my mouth while laughing, as In Japan, covering mouth while laughing means not showing your exact reactions. Moreover, it helps to keep your emotions subtle and shy. This is also considered graceful for ladies in Japan. I will have to make sure, during my next virtual tour, I need to sit on an acupressure active chair instead of a well padded couch for not forgetting, I am not to “Actual” but to “Virtual tour".

In Pandemic “Yeh Public Hai Yeh Sab Janti Hai”

4/28/2021 2:07:00 PM

Oxygen, Proper Hydration means Water, Healthy lifestyle & healthy food are trending aggressively these days. As a literate generation, we accumulated enough knowledge about body and soul before Pandemic but realize this profoundly now. 24x7 rushing for work,compromising with health, eat Junk food to save seconds to compete daily stuff and much more but why not Since childhood we are poured with competition from head to toe. From neighbours to relatives, we are compared with each other, so Ladies and Gentlemen don’t worry, it's not our fault I think we will have to start R & D to determine what is the root cause. Anyhow, let us not divert attention and just focus on immunity and health-related things. Newspapers, Radio, Tv Channels, and even almost every advertisement are talking about simple things immunity, proper hydration, exercise, good food, and of course vaccination is being seen as hope. It is seen nobody is talking about money in corona days to some extent. Politicians, Actors, Famous personalities, and the common man are being treated unbiasedly by monster corona and meanwhile, backbenchers and average school and college students are happy about the comeback of covid-19 although they don’t believe to express their happiness, viral messages, memes, and trending videos are not hidden from mobile users and social sites subscribers. On the other hand, the labour class, low-income group, small business, and even big ones are hit by the second wave it is like between the devil and the deep sea like circumstances in the pandemic. It is said, worse condition can be tackled only with attitude, means it is your attitude that can change the things positively. In Corona, the economy is jolted by the second wave where some are in between the devil and the deep sea like situation, some big personalities are busy in Twitter handle to only for emotional Tweets, begging with a loud voice, no donations and with Big Public Relation Team, somewhere, volunteers for their upcoming project promotions by giving stuff till their project profits. Another one working like helping hands in a worse situation. Free food Services, Free oxygen for needy and poor, Free Ambulance Services, oxygen langar, Services for covid victim’s body to Crematorium, Doctors, frontline Workers, army, Police, and many untold Anti Covid Heros are balancing the worse situation silently, they don’t have Public Relation services who will handle their brand value or name. One more thing is noticed “They are Silent, but Their Work is Loud”. In this condition “Yeh Jo Public Hai Yeah Sab Janti Hai” is fitted perfectly. In this time, we should help each other honestly, if we cannot, at least we can take care of ourselves from covid-19 so that others can be facilitated with medical services and other things which we would have if we were infected.

Govt Magic Wand on Health Sector, time to Make it Effective

2/9/2021 10:50:00 AM

Fill in the details, create a login, get registered and you are being contacted, or call is being initiated, perfect initiatives have been taken. In the Covid-19 pandemic phase, sluggish things have happened, but some new ideas are originated for perpetual. Covid-19 Pandemic jolted the world by proving how health facilities are vulnerable and must be sprawled and effective. Although everything which affects our economy should be improved health is the first which affects a lot, or we can say that each citizen’s health contributes towards economy. Before the pandemic, things had been going as it is for many years without required amendments, but corona stimulated the world to be changed for very required reasons. Such changes have happened in the health sector although many people are not aware of such health facilities. Online Registration System (ORS) and E Sanjeevani OPD are among various online medical services portals. E Sanjeevani OPD is National Teleconsultation Service of the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare is first of its kind online OPD service offered by a country government to its citizens. The platform is available to people in 27 states and union territories. It is a big push for the 'Digital India' initiative of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. As many, big hospitals have come forward by creating an online platform for patients. Registration number, OPD Appointments, doctor-patient meet through video calling, and medical reports are being served under the online portal. Through an online portal, minor issues can be solved by sitting at home. No more travel harassment for mild medical issues. The Effective online portal will help the hospital crowd off and the physical visits would be happening in required cases. Time, Money and travel expense can be saved. It will be beneficial for the hospital too as a less human resource can provide their best services comparatively. During Pandemic, Online wave was seen in health sector among other prominent sectors and it has proved by doing work under these online platforms, productivity can be increased but it cannot be denied, these Medical online portals are doing their work as per web programming but the people who are working under these web systems are not doing their work in the required effective way. It is seen that government initiatives work like a magic wand but being a country citizen and Prominent organizations, we should put at least propositional efforts to make things happening only after those things can work properly. By developing OPD online Portals, a sigh of relief has been seen during the Pandemic. From my little experience with portals, I realized, these portals could be proved a game-changer if it would work most effectively. As the portal is patient-friendly, easy to operate and well managed but services that should be provided is not available in a better manner. General OPD & Specialty OPD should be opened on a timely basis and every each Token should be consulted as per queue. It is seen doctors do not be the online timely and patient end it up with waiting, most patients are not updated about their turn. India's economy is strong in its own way and citizen’s efforts can bring it to the next level. Where the world is deteriorated by corona, India fought with corona like strong warriors and helping the world like God Sakat Mochan Hanuman by giving swadeshi free vaccination. Time to boost Govt efforts to make the health sector strong and effective. Chandigarh

Natural disaster, Pandemic and more, if you don't fear

12/22/2020 11:58:00 AM

Since our birth, we are taught about god, as we cannot see him, but at the same time, we can experience his love and affection by breathing oxygen, drinking water, eating food and living in a suitable environment. In Marketing gimmick world, nature gives it free different products worldwide. It is a very strange thing, what have been provided by nature are the most prominent things to live, but we give importance to other things. It is the time where we google each and everything, so google it, human being needs to live. Money would not stand anywhere but oxygen, water and food. Human being is among the wise creation of nature, but his over smartness is creating drastic problems worldwide. Nature gives exact habitats to each creation where they can live peacefully, but human curiosity never ends. It is good to consider worse things and make efforts to bring them into equilibrium, but it is bad to stimulate better things and finish them into worse. Human often do R&D and sometime try to make perfect things more perfect. He enters the marine world and expect their aquatic life will let him do arbitrariness on the contrary, whenever mistakenly animals enter his boundary he is ready to destroy them. Is it right? It is humorous when he stops his breath in water and try to live in water as long as possible while he is human, and land is the perfect place to live so why he does this worse thing it reflect his expansionist attitude. Human innovations could not be denied. Switzerland is the world’s most-innovative economy followed by Sweden, the United States of America (U.S.), the United Kingdom (U.K.) and the Netherlands, according to the GII 2020. 2020 ranking of science and technology hotspots Tokyo-Yokohama is the top performing hotspot again, followed by Shenzhen-Hong Kong-Guangzhou, Seoul, Beijing, and San Jose-San Francisco. Economies achieved huge levels in innovation, Science and Technology, and they are capable to predict nature surprises, but it is also true we cannot deny supreme power will. Whatever nature wants to do, it does. Sometimes it seems cruel attempt of her, but in close inspect we found foul play is also done by human too. Selfishness is a very common word, and we take it very lightly. But it is like mental disorder, when human embrace selfishness, he is wrapped up in own desires and don’t care others. There are countless instances which let the selfishness prove poisonous. Deforestation, emissions of greenhouse gases, soil erosion, Plastic use, etc. are problems which are creating huge disaster worldwide. Although, agreements are being signed over climate change, PARIS AGREEMENT is one among where Its goal is to limit global warming to well below 2, preferably to 1.5 degrees Celsius, compared to pre-industrial levels. It was adopted by 196 Parties at COP 21 in Paris, on 12 December 2015 and entered into force on 4 November 2016. These are agreement which can help to control climate change, but it seems agreements should be tabled on cruelty. Recently, horrible news was just breaking TV big screen with sad vibrations, human attempt of cruelty happened in Malappuram, Kerala where a pregnant elephant died after a local allegedly fed her a pineapple stuffed with crackers. Some News reported that locals did this horrible task to safeguard their crops from wild animals. But destroy someone's life is not the way at all. The question arises, how human being can take decisions over animals and vegetation life. Both cannot speak and escalate their grievance, so supreme power does justice by doing natural disasters. A herd of elephant was seen rummaging food around garbage areas located next to a wildlife protection zone, A landfill site in the town of Ampara Sri Lanka was created about a decade ago. It is a head scratcher sad moment that why the elephant is helpless to find his food in scrap. This is a jumbo problem in Sri Lanka on human and elephant conflict. Where human want to save their crop field and elephant does enter human boundaries or to jump scrap in search of food. Now it is the human responsibility to get solved as soon as possible. Unlike human can find good in bad, animals take the things same as displayed. If we talk about air pollution, In India, more people have been killed due to toxic air pollution in 2019 than in 2017, according to Lancet report published recently. 1.67 million deaths accounting for 18% of all fatalities. New Delhi, Kolkata and Mumbai were on the list of the world’s 20 worst polluted cities. It is the human responsibility to provide a better environment to others who are also the stakeholders of nature, if not, at least let the nature as it is as it has been created. Otherwise, be ready for floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes, tsunamis and storms, etc. Another natural treatment also here like pandemic, as we all know whole world are shivering under corona disaster. Science and Technology help to shield the entire world, but things which happened around let us know, supreme power controls the entire universe and even atom cannot change its position without his will. And if someone dares to imbalance nature the result will be worse. Being loved, spread love and respect each other habitants are good health prescriptions for nature creations. In profitable Marketing world, maverick tricks are being carried out to sell products, but nature care its creation by providing them basic things under lifetime package, Simultaneously, we should make proper utilization of natural resources.

East or West all directions are Best

10/1/2020 10:05:00 AM

The Backpack seems often light when we are accompanied by google map on long travels, doesn’t matter, where we go. Put your destination in the search box and the beautiful voice comes from your mobile, which leads you to a destination while you are having less information about direction. You enjoy your favorite music with a high-quality subwoofer during decoding the body language of a travel planner, a huge quantity of enthusiasm is found prowling around the man of the trip. No worries about a travel destination and the traveling wave is in the right flow. Feeling nostalgic, while traveling with google map, direction theory was so easy and so simple as now. In initial academic years, among other basic things, we learned about directions and found nothing which could be confused. In short, the Sun rises in the east and sets in the west, the north will be on your left side and the south will be on your right while facing sunrise. As far as, I remember, auspicious and inauspicious words were never a part of the direction chapter at all. Although google map and GPS digital direction guide arrival make our travel smooth and enthusiastic, but, when direction accompanied by the dwelling, it becomes even terrible. Clarity seems to fade. Will this direction be auspicious? Some are being dragged to superstition having much confusion over dream home facing. Hardcore money is going to be put on it. There are millions of people, who are prowling around the confusion over direction while laying foundation for a dream home. Among so many things, I am unable to understand why people are so much confused over the direction. Their deep belief in direction magic effects dragged them to superstition to some extent. People believe, by constructing a study room in a particular direction, their kid's study will be impacted in a positive manner, but I have a doubt into it. Many success stories have been written under the sky. Dr. Abdul Kalam belonged to a poor family, he had not a study room in a particular direction as I have read about him. Apart from Dr. Abdul Kalam, there are so many brilliant people who had broken this myth while studying under the sky and streetlight. However, it is extremely important to place each room in perfect direction by best use of natural resources. Here, google map and GPS will not work with solidarity but your R&D can give you a confident ray of hope.. Climatic conditions and optimum use of natural resources recommend you a direction for a dream home. Land with huge vegetation, thick walls and high ceiling can be a good choice for hot climate region. North facing home works like a catalyst into it. It will be best to consider sunlight preference for each room before finalizing the direction for a particular room. Unlike the hottest region, South Facing or East Facing will be a good choice for cold climatic regions. Moreover, both positions receive a huge amount of natural light which means, climate condition recommends you a direction. We cannot recommend a particular direction for several climatic conditions. Sunlight and air like any other natural resource should be firmly considered as stakeholders; optimum utilization of each natural resource will escape your home to be a bill factory. A natural resource like sunlight not only effects the inner environment of home, bill amount figures but it also affects your mental health too. Here, we will try to find out how sunlight and darkness affect our mental health. Sunlight and darkness help in the release of good hormones in our brain when we are exposed in certain amount of time. When we get our cells exposed to sunlight then it is thought to increase the release of a good hormone called serotonin in brain. Serotonin is associated with boosting mood and helping a person feel calm and focused. At night, darkness trigger the brain to make another hormone called melatonin. This hormone is responsible for helping you to get sound sleep. Overthinking is not only restricted to home construction but also in home décor. As India believes in some philosophies on home dwelling and home décor, other countries also do the same. Japan follows wabi sabi and china believes in feng shui. Behind all philosophies could have the same intentions, but the elements revolve around the philosophy are different. Vastu shastra revolve around five elements water, air, sky, fire and space and feng shui includes wood, fire, earth, metal and water. Which thing will be where? what kind of things should be brought to bring happiness? I think let the home décor follows your heart. It is a place where you find peace after a long day hustle bustle. The space, where you embrace your good or bad, it symbolizes you not other persona. Akshardham Temple Complex has 10 massive and beautiful gates. The layout of the gates was planned according to the ten principal directions described in Indian culture. The gates, entryways reflect the Vedic sentiment of inviting goodness from everywhere to all visitors. I found, spirituality is embracing all directions, sunshine and blowing wind like nature’s pop-ups reveal east or west all directions are “The Best”. Chandigarh

Fitness fine kick over Dream home amenities

8/31/2020 6:01:00 PM

Since last many year’s, bizarre performances are often seen in parks, mostly, it is a picturesque view of morning and evening. Fiercely, people invent their own moves while seeing other one doing something with their nostrils or pumping heart by breathing out on colorful yoga mats. Dance without music consists of basic self made steps and giggling without any reason sounds scary sometimes, appears adventure channel is live on real television screen. Outside a park, bottle gourd & bitter gourd juices are sold over maverick trick. Fitness obsession is going all the way to physical and mental health. People are very aware of their mind and body. Everything is being seen under a fitness perspective, although bad visual feed impacts are being ignored sometimes irrespective of knowing visuals impact our mind. Electronic media is keen to broadcast fitness programs by giving “Miraculous Headlines” as exercises will be performed by experts. Often, It is likely outcome, many can harm each other during emulating experts while watching fitness programs, if we consider room measurements. Everyone needs a fine morning kick to make their day productive by doing exercise and watching horoscope. On the other hand, YouTube, Instagram, Facebook Twitter, etc are inundated with fitness goals. Video sharing sites introduce you to many people who would sometimes inculcate authenticity about video outcomes. Multiple asana photos are capable to tell you the whole story by photos sharing sites, simultaneously Ketogenic diet and Vegan diet are followed by many under media sources guidance and ready to switch another one to get the best results. It seems, way of presentation of everything has changed and things will absolutely be grilled until implementation. Rituals of welcoming guests have been changed over a period of time, There was a time when we were offered tea, coffee, or cold drink. Now, the beverages menu has been changed, green tea is included. If we chose tea, then the question arises, which milk will be added, almond milk, or holy cow milk. By choosing cow milk, we are asked to choose among toned milk, whole milk or skimmed. At once I got embarrassed when I had been given choice between sugar or stevia??? Then I realized, people are in a health marathon, and I still believe in baby steps. Without wasting any time, we start rubbing nails while talking to each other as it claims to reduce grey hair. These days, In our talk, health issues and their remedies are discussed and while offering lunch or dinner, we are introduced to recipes accompanying health benefits as things should be grilled and drilled so that conviction will be maintained while consuming. As the food is considered for maintaining health, other activities play a vital role too. Cycle, which had been apart in past, reunion, is seen these days. However, having a cycle for many are their helplessness. Cycling Track is being constructed along with roads. Now, Cycle seems, seen as a status symbol behind multiple health stories. People used to take multiple memberships of Yoga, jogging, swimming and gym activities among others which energize us for the whole day. As we got to know, it has become our part of life so while searching dream home, we give more importance to home amenities instead of other things. There was a time, when only home location matters a lot while making home- buying decisions, although it matters too now, over a fitness long-lasting wave, home amenities grab the attention of the home buyer to some extent. It could be quite good to have every facility at our doorstep instead scattered. Chandigarh

Filter Selfie Camera is Inspirational too, but behind the Camera intention matters a lot

8/6/2020 4:31:00 PM

Beyond self-centered, hypocrisy is blooming around creation. Residing in “Matlabpur” since many years, we have been dragged far away willingly from where we belong to. We firmly recommend hill stations but residing in a plain crowded city is our choice. Social and electronic media scream plastic ban, pollution control, sapling, water conservation, selfies along with aloevera & flaunts food wastage. Suddenly, while stepping down in real world, absence of plastic, thrown us far away from our comfort zone. we have not been offended by multiple number plates over pollution. Junk food craving forget aloevera benefits, wedding and birthday parties are ruling over food wastage, so much confusion. Breathing exercises and Higher Air quality Index are behaving like rivals. Simultaneously high demand of masks and yoga mats market is on a high swing. Even masks are available with color contrast, promptly finding something creative even in “worst” is in the DNA of human being. India was the 5 most polluted country in 2019, with Ghaziabad in the National Capital Region ranked as the most polluted city in the world, according to a global compilation of PM 2.5 particulate pollution data by IQ Air, a company that primarily works on air filtration. Since the last decades, numerous environmental issues have been prowling around the globe. Tv flickering screen often making headlines about carbon dioxide emission and glaciers melting among prevailing domestic and political stories. And somewhere, these technical terms fail to give them good TRP. Meanwhile, many campaigns trend on social media platforms with hash tag. It is the question of the hour, so many initiatives are being carried out through electronic & social media, but nature devastating health tells us a different story, time to remove malware named “hypocrisy”. Fictitious Superheroes practice to hide themselves along with good deed and subsequently, they are inspirational too with their character. It is indeed inspirational to contribute after the environment with a filter selfie camera, but behind the camera, intentions matters a lot. However, it could be result oriented. There is a blame game since creation. Most of an environmental disaster is the consequence of human self-centered activities, but whenever nature fiercely reacts and we set to be surprised. In most of the cases desire dominates need, when we need only source of transport but our desire of many. It doesn’t mean irrespective of sound financial potential, we should stick to public transport. Moreover fictitious Aladdin magical floral carpet will also not be worked. There is a need to make equilibrium between desire and need in wake of the environment. Time alarms to take environmental issues on surveillance, not for just name sake. Parlors conclude lifestyle, but oxygen Parlor sounds worst, seems artificial and mechanical live with a plastic body, to be called nightmare, would not wrong. Some things should be manufactured under nature monopoly. Heavy downpour, lowest rainfall or never rained are on one side and its effects on another. Since many relief aid and packages are given to affected areas but why nature is being biased towards its own creation. As nature sources always tend to being unbiased. Urbanization, industrialization and globalization revolution creates smart cities, generating jobs, infrastructure, improves export. Country enjoys its upward graph. Caricature should never be on evolution. Contrary, to focus on some environment friendly practices. Include residential green building, concludes designing and constructing homes that use energy, water and materials efficiently. It claims to reduced impact on physical environment and promotes a healthy indoor environment. To be called mumbaikars, delhians and chandigarhians promote feel good factor. Who resides here, and no doubt, these cities demonstrate enough splendid monuments, social amenities. Many people became opulent by its location potential. Chandigarh is seen as a job hub, IT city, medi city and Bio Tecchnology park. These are emerging as opportunities for country talent. By developing surrounding states we can control the migration ratio. Himachalians and Uttaranchalkars many states will be emerging as existing with enough location potential. That will grab the attention of many as do Mumbai, Delhi & Chandigarh among others. Where, we were banging our head over climate issues. Corona was set to spread. Now, the entire globe seems warrior. However, some have left things on supreme power by not carrying corona protection gadgets. Irrespective of the corona disaster, astonishingly, both believers look at each other through an intellectual lens. Meanwhile, social distancing leads goosebumps among window seat lovers in public transport, and hope of live is being seen as a life support machine in between “Tug of vaccine”. Corporate is opened with guidelines, Shopping has been served under sanitization downpour. Seems, perfect place if we feel unhygienic during a pandemic. Other essential activities were being carried on since lockdown. News are spread, cinema’s, gym and other activities are about to open consisting some guidelines with coming to unlock. Seeing the pandemic catastrophe with crystal clear lenses, some have themselves ready with a to- do list. Unlock should be seen as new normal, should not be seen as without corona till at least vaccine arrival. Chandigarh

It will be healthy to boost your happiness hormones or to be entertained for a while, but practiced in the whole day could make your life curse, so everyone should have to take the responsibility for themselves that how much they should be indulged in digital platforms and of course their Parents too should be on high alert while giving them digital gadgets. Technology has a profound impact globally, almost every sector activity drives directly or indirectly digitally and this is the need of the hour for being alive in the market. Globally, Among countries, there is competition to be on top or even pioneer in every field whether it is electronics, defense or pharma, to be the inventor of Covid-19 vaccines is the current instance of being pioneers, this is all happening around the existence of science and technology.

Pandemic Covid-19 Lockdown and buying RERA Projects

7/13/2020 3:23:00 PM

It seems Pandemic Covid-19 will not stop until its vaccine found and now we have left with prevention only which can help us to survive pandemic.It is creating catastrophe globally.Covid-19 and Lockdown have changed people's prospective towards their life.Pandemic Covid-19 has succeeded to stressed out on social Infrastructure,Among other social infrastructure,Huge health infrastructure should also be seen as important,as it has a huge impact on our economic growth.Covid-19 proves practically how citizen's good health bridging the gap between Country's economy and its growth. During the pandemic,people's different faces have been seen, tenants and paying guests were being harassed by landlords, Reports said.Corona spread was becoming dangerous and misconceptions over pandemic and other rental issues were forcing landlords but to evacuate rented accommodation. Where some were doing inhumanity meanwhile, many volunteers came to help others to provide covid -19 safety gadgets and many were came to feed hungry.Animals too were not deprived from humanity. The days of lock down seem worse when the house is not even yours.Pandemic Covid-19 Lockdown forced us to think about our own home,where,we can take care of our self and our loved ones by giving them hygienic place called home and let our family corona free. Owning Home is everyone dream and Covid-19 spread has been succeeded to convert dream into the need of the hour.In india ,residential demand is on boom and NRIs real estate demand kept pace in their home town,Reports said. Home is a peaceful and secured place, where we feel comfortable and enthusiastic.We can do what we want to do.In your own home, you are the only who can make and break the rule, nobody can instruct you to do this and that,However, EMIs are being paid, if you take home loan,But it will not disturb your mental peace because EMIs are giving you ownership and once EMI finishes it will become your tangible asset.Means you can enjoy your asset since buying your dream home.Fortunately, RERA and PMAY are two among other are working like demand booster to encourage residential demand, and low interest home loan is working like catalyst into it. RERA empowers buyer.Earlier,buyer's property buying decision was hit in the absence of RERA but now seeing in upward trend in residential property. It seems RERA has been successful to bring confidence in residential market even in pandemic corona virus lockdown. What is RERA? RERA stands for Real Estate Regulatory Authority.It aims protecting the interest of property buyer in real estate sector and to establish an arbitrating mechanism for speedy dispute redressal. Project delivery delays, property pricing, quality of construction, title and other changes are the issues which RERA regulates and addresses the issues in an efficient and transparent manner. RERA empowers both Builder or Developer and Buyer, as most of the things were favoring Builder. RERA brought many norms that will protect buyers from unfair builders malpractices. Takeaways of RERA Standardized Carpet Area Earlier the carpet area on which the property price calculated was not defined.Every builder/developer had their own method of calculation of the carpet area.Means for the same property the builder would calculate the carpet area of 1400 sq ft and the other would calculate the carpet area of 1500 sqft ,Hence there was no parity in carpet area in the absence of RERA.However,this has now been defined by the RERA Act,and the same formula would be applied by all builders/developers for the calculation of the carpet area. Subsequently, it will impact property prices as price calculates on the basis of the property carpet area.Builders compute the price of the property as follows: Cost of the property=Carpet Area x Rate per sq ft Rate of Interest on default Earlier,In case of default on payment by the buyer ,the interest to be paid by the builder to builder was higher on the contrary if builder delays the possession of property ,the interest to be paid by the builder to the buyer was less.Means there was no parity in the interest to be paid for both parties.RERA defines the interest to be paid by both parties will be the same for both parties.RERA has been successful to bridge the gap between two. Reduces the Risk of Builder Insolvency/Bankruptcy Usually A builder has many projects to be built which have to build simultaneously. Earlier,Builders were free to divert the fund raised from Project A to fund the construction of project B. Now,This would not be possible as RERA defines norms which help to reduce the risk of Builder Insolvency .According to RERA,the builder is liable to deposit 70% of the amount realized in for the project in a separate bank account.Builder can withdraw from such account only on the basis of completion of project,which will be certified by a civil engineer,architect and a chartered accountant in practice. Compensation over False Promises RERA empowers buyers, If there is mismatch over builder commitments and actual property, the buyer has an option to withdraw from the property, RERA ,buyer is entitled to full refund of the amount paid as advance or otherwise along with interest and claim compensation. Right to information The buyer will be entitled to have all the information related to the property,layout plan,execution plan,stage wise completion status etc. Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana: Having own home is a dream of everyone,unfortunately,some are deprived to fulfill this dream,among so many reasons,financial issue impacted the most of home buying decisions.Fortunately Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana give a hope over it and many have been benefited from Awas Yojana.

New Era in India with bringing of fresh Rs 500 & 2000 currency notes

11/19/2019 6:47:00 PM

"The Govt. Of India yesterday 8th Nov2016 has ignite the flame to flatter the future of all Indians.With this new move the govt has clearly give the message to common man that India is now moving towards cashless transactions whether it is a matter to buy a small matchbox or to buy a LPG cylinder for home or just pay your LPG monthly bill digitally.It added more value to few private e-commerce platforms those have already started building confidence inside the consumer mind to see another alternative of bank ATM card.With this bold move of Govt the rumors are every where that what will happen to Indian Economy, Will specific product  like Stock Exchange, Gold, Real Estate etc will perform well in the absence of black money. In a laymen sense we can expect the things will move ahead in the same way as rumors are, but there can or we say exist another side of coin too. If we see the last three to four years of Indian real estate primary market on ground the chunk of black money was negligible. Due to the buying of investors held in the previous bull run for year  2009-2012 the market price for their assets are not even some time able to sell off on purchased price.Due to existence of end user demand in majority the sellers are managing to accept their short/long term gains through banking.The secondary market in undergoing or recently developed townships hope fully shall not face any major heat of Govt. this move as the margin of long/short term gains are very less. Further the investors those are holding properties in anticipation of better price in the near future will remain peace because of long vision where as current seller may adjust comfortably towards the acceptance of new move to keep the end user demand fulfilled in the near future. Most of Builders all around the country have been fighting since that with Low residential housing sale, Huge inventory , Slow construction phase, liquidity crunch,increasing Debt etc. As expected the selling pressure on the builders those are keeping huge inventory with the support of black money will face heat, but parallel to this Builder working from last few decades in providing good habitation to this country will have opportunity to regain the confidence of customer to large extent. One more addition to this will be the increased liquidity of Banks with this currency demonetization.With these Lakhs of crore deposits the financial strength of banks for lending will be increased and  may soon reflect in the form of reduce lending rate for Home loan etc. As per Economic parameters we know, the reduced home loan rate will ignite end user demand for Homes to fulfill  one major goal of their life.Reduced home loan rates enhance the capability of buyers to stretch  their loan with nominal change in their paying capacity. More over the real estate market is going to be very transparent for players those are practicing cheque & paper transaction in order to keep books of account healthy for buyer and seller. The upcoming enforcement of real estate act by Union govt and RERA presence in all part of country by April 2017 will be the backbone for real estate market to keep stand in front of consumer sentiments for sector. Once again the changing law and polices in country like India. in a surprise and positive manner  keep the finger cross for hoping such more good decision in near future. " Chandigarh

Demonetization:The Tremendous Unlocking opportunity for Real Estate Sector

12/20/2016 5:06:00 PM

"Views of Noted Economists, Chartered Accountants, Investment Gurus and Finance experts on Effect of Demonetization and other recent developments on Real Estate. Last few days there has been a surge of messages from ""Whatsapp Economists"" with the simple theme that real estate prices will fall drastically due to Demonetization ie ban on Rs 500/Rs 1000 notes. Here's a 10 Point Summary of what actual experts with business and economic logic say: Demonetization will flood the Banking system with funds driving down both interest rates on Deposits and Loans If Interest rate on FD is just 5-6 % interest on Home Loans will come down to 7-8 % (since Banks keep an 2-3 per cent margin). (Banks already indicated the same) Historically at such Low interest rates Real Estate industry gets a massive boost as property becomes attractive to everyone: Buyers, Investors and even that invisible category called Businessmen/Professionals. Even when prices are same, Apartments come within reach of Buyers due to lower EMI on Loans due to lower interest rate Investors find Investing in property more attractive than earning a paltry 5-6 % on Bank Deposit as simply buying and renting out gives them more return. PLUS they create an asset and earn appreciation over a period of time PLUS they get income tax deductions Shopkeepers, Retail Malls, Corporate Houses and even professionals like Doctors, Consultants, CAs jump in to buy property as they want preferred location and once that's gone they may never get that chance again. So, they buy at the first available opportunity instead of waiting for prices to fall. Demonetization will see the most money flowing in banking system from people in the unorganized / small scale sector: Farmers, Traders, Tailors, Hoteliers, Beauty shop owners, Tuition classes, small contractors, House Maids, Drivers, Security Guards etc. Crores of new people entering Banking system means that they will also be eligible to get bank loans and fulfill their dream of owning a house Government will have money to invest in infrastructure as Banks will deploy lakhs of crores in Government Securities. With a few lakh crore at its disposal, Government can only boost funding to infrastructure schemes such as Smart City Mission, Swacch Bharat Mission, Housing for All etc. New Airport in town, better connectivity to National/State Highway, Up gradation in City Transport all lead to increase in demand and prices of properties in the city It is interesting to note that real estate prices show slower rise in countries which have a fully ready infrastructure like USA, UK, Japan etc. Whereas in a developing countries like India, there is a vast difference in prices in a City before and after creation of Infrastructure   Conclusion: In the final analysis, recent developments such as passing of Real Estate Regulation Act, Demonetization, Goods and Service Tax etc combined with Government focus on infrastructure will only serve as positive factors for growth of Real Estate industry Factors of Real Estate Industry which get missed due to one-sided picture created by social media:  Real Estate Industry contributed 7 % to India's GDP.
