Learning to Listen How do we gain a perspective on what is appropriate and sensible to do in a situation?
Sdhguru, of Isha Foundation said in a local paper (which is reproduced for the information and benefit of the members of "sundercircle". "If you do not have a direct perception, you must be willing to listen- to anything and everything. Someone seems to be talking utter nonsense, but still you listen because most the geniuses in the world spoke utter nonsense as far as the rest of the world was concerned at that moment. It is just that you are willing to listen. It does not matter who is speaking. Whether a child is speaking or a great man or a menial is speaking, you learn to listen". Kind Regards! Sunder T
India4u: Solar power 100,000MW The target for solar electric capacity from 20,000MW to 100,000MW by 2022 at a cost of about US$ 100 billion need a through check up and thinking for the new government who has just finished 365 days of rule. Solar electricity is most promising. But it is also hugely subsidiezed today. Stripped of subsidies, solar pwer currently cost 14 cents/unit (abt. Rs.9.5/unit). India should opt for solar energy when it is cheaper and it is estblished as competitive and even then onlh to the extent it does not disturb the grid. Taking risk at this juncture is not very practical. Need second thinking on the subject. Kind Regards! Sunder Thadani. - -
Mumbaikars: Mumbai Municipal Corporation chief Ajoy Mehta has decided to make WhatsApp messenger service an official mode of communication within the civil body. These instructions are directed towards all BMC deputy municipal commissioners, directors, deans of civi hospitals, chief engineers and assistant commissioners in charge of 24 wards in Mumbai. It is high time Indians public servant (today some of them are taken as owners of India) should wake up to save time and public money. Kind Regards! Sunder Thadani -
Mumbai: (Vehicles) Spot e-challans for traffic offences are being implemented in Mumbai city.
 The drawback is that the initiative forced software and other glitches, such as the tablet batter dying after about an hour of usage, forcing conps to go back to the station or chowki to recharge them; the screen not being readable in sunlight, and even spotty 3G connectivity.
 The device works best with a smart card issued by RTO; manual input is time consuming, slowing down process when drivers show paper RC books, which RTOs are now issueing.
Mumbai (Auto/Taxis): Auto/Taxi meters in Mumbai are being rigged and new help line has come on mobile no. 9869691666 [Available on WhatsApp].
The very fact that yet another government department is being forced to set up yet another helpline indicates that the existing mechanism is not working. Commuters are as angry with rogue drivers as they ar with government agencies not giving any redress. The legal metrology department, hopefully, will be more proactive that other agencies like cops and RTOs. Kind Regards! Sunder Thadani/
