  • Toxic Free Kapila
    Observing the media reports and research papers, along with couple of personal visits, it’s evident that all efforts are temporarily been taken and that, a concrete plan for Kapila river to be clean, healthy and safe for usage by people or for the aqua-fauna life, is yet to be planned and implemented. The various stakeholders such as industries, local authorities, tourists, devotees and local people are the ones that can make difference by working hand-in-hand. This petition is to raise awareness among various stakeholders and have an infrastructure in-place and have people responsible for sustaining the water quality of Kapila River. Pls click on the link below: http://kannadanews-tv9.blogspot.in/2017/02/organisations-volunteers-cleanup.html Let’s join hands for Kapila River that provides drinking water and livelyhood for people of Nanjangud. Some of the suggestions to curb the water quality deterioration of Kapila: 1) The river cleaning needs autonomous body or support of Environmentalists and NGO’s that would have river cleaned every quarter in a year. 2) Strict rules and penalties for people and industries polluting the river for personal or commercial use. 3) Making “No disposal Zone” (NDZ) around the river. 4) No bathing, washing or garbage disposal in the river. 5) The EU – India water partnership, speaks about industries or organisations providing sustainable clean drinking water system. The practice of society, communities and corporate working hand-in-hand. 6) Imposing carbon emission or waste disposal penalties to industries. 7) Encouraging innovative methods or alternate use of waste among industries near Kapila. It’s important to save these rivers and lakes that are part of forming a beautiful tourist spot, which gives this small place an opportunity to grow. Given that India is destination for tourists from all over the world, the Kapila (Kabini) river can entice you with its beauty. The more people get to know about it, the more tourists’ visits, more livelyhood, but, not at the cost of the river being used and abused for personal or commercial use. We are fortunate to have born in a place of holy and clean rivers like Godavari and Kapila that still serve the mankind with its goodness. It’s time to give back to Mother Earth.

  • Musi - Killed by Industrialization
    As you know, We are surplus in population in our city now. We are thirsty in mid rainy season and summers are the worst. We are fed with water being pumped out of Krishna & Godavari, which is too costly for us as a government. Musi is one such natural asset of our region (Telangana), spread among districts, which we can concentrate on to bring back to life. I believe It can suffice at least half the water need in our city. It can bring up Eco tourism in our city, in turn, some more revenue, employment, and reduced cost on water feed to city. Putting aside everything, its we putting forward the nature before us and co exist along with it, proving to the world, civilization can exist without natural destruction! We realize..! Thy we survive!!

  • don't reduce the green cover
    The value of an apple tree doesn’t lie in terms of economy only, but also in its carbon capturing efficiency. The most significant and undisputed problem of the World today is Climate Change, which has resulted due to Global warming. Uncontrolled Carbon emissions in the atmosphere are increasing global warming. All green trees help in carbon capturing, so does the apple tree. As per the one of the reports of New York’s State Apple Research and Development Program, an acre of orchard fixes about 20 tons of CO2 from the air each season, releases 15 tons of oxygen, and provides over 3.4-4 billion BTU’s (equivalent to about 85-90 air conditioners of 10,000 BTU capacity running 24/7 for 6 months) of cooling power. In addition, some carbon is sequestered in the new wood and, roots of the trees. Apple trees also help perpetuate the water cycle by returning water vapors back into the atmosphere. Uprooting such a huge number of apple trees is not a worthy idea. Uprooting of trees are not only resulting in reduction of the carbon capturing capacity from atmosphere, but, also increasing carbon emissions due to its decay. There seems no difference in actions taken by farmers to encroach in forests then, and as ordered by the Court to remove all the encroachments now, as in both the actions there is loss/impact to environment. Hence, Government needs to step in and, find some other desirable alternatives to remove encroachments, so that, the very idea to save environment can be ensured.

  • Stop Spitting Pune!!!
    - Spitting is not a harmless thing to do. - Saliva carries live germs for more than 24 hours and can cause EVERY respiratory disease. - India is the highest Tuberculosis (TB) burden country with World Health Organisation (WHO) statistics for 2011 giving an estimated incidence figure of 2.2 million cases of TB for India out of a global incidence of 8.7 million cases. And saliva is the main transmitter for TB. (Source: WHO Report) - The H1N1 virus caused 485 deaths in India between Jan. 1 and Feb. 12, 2015. More than 6,000 people had tested positive for the virus during that time. (Source: Reuters) - In 2009-10, the H1N1 swine flu pandemic spread from central Mexico to 74 other countries including India, killing an estimated 284,000 people, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Saliva is a carrier for H1N1 virus. - Spitting in public places poses the greatest risk of infection. - Its not about 1 day of a Swacchh Bharat scheme - its about making Pune a cleaner, healthier place to live in.

  • Please DO NOT USE AGRICULTURE LANDS for new Capital City in Andhra Pradesh State
    Pulling out thousands of acres of Highly Fertile Lands form the farmers to build State Capital will not only push the farmers in to a dangerous zone, but also damage the Ecosystem. In addition, this also creates severe scarcity of Food Grains. The entire stretch of VGTM (Vijayawada, Guntur, Telnali and Mangalagiri) is called "ANNAPURNA" where the farmers produce range of Food Grains from highly fertile lands. We should sustain the name "Food Bowl of India". Now, by pulling out those highly fertile lands for building the state capital will create a serious threat for FARMERS, ENVIRONMENT and creates FOOD SCARCITY. Hence, please stop pulling out agriculture lands for state capital. Instead, look out for an alternate place.

  • A Crèche In Your Office Too
    15 years ago, I was one of them. I had to choose between full-time work and my daughter. Needless to say, I chose my daughter and was a stay-at-home mother for 5 years. These hard choices need to end. The modern Indian workplace, rather than force women to choose between work and children, needs to keep pace with the changing roles of women. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j2PuAAPYI2Y&feature=youtu.be This will only happen if your Ministry makes it mandatory for every establishment with 20 or more women workers to set up and maintain a crèche for children under the age of six. The good part is that you don’t have to start something new because the groundwork for this is already in place. The Rajiv Gandhi National Crèche Scheme for Children of Working Mothers currently covers tribal, rural and urban children across 449 districts. And in 2013, the Ministry of Women and Child Development – now your ministry – passed a resolution (No. 16-1/2012-CW-I) to “provide and promote crèche and day care facilities for children of working mothers, mothers belonging to poor families, ailing mothers and single parents.” This is laudable. But if a crèche facility is mandatory for factories, plantations and beedi and cigar workers, what is stopping the government from making it mandatory for private companies? Day-care at the workplace will change the lives of millions of working women. It will be great for children. It will reduce pressure on the family to provide childcare while parents go to work. And because a happy workplace is a productive workplace, it will be good for the companies too. On behalf of every working mother who stopped working for want of access to day-care, I ask you to use your mandate and turn your Ministry’s resolution into law. There are many things we must do to level the playing field, but let’s start here.

  • Illegal toxic dumping in Kerala affecting local community and children
    My community is facing a serious threat from this company; I see that a lot of people in my community dying with cancer and what’s worse I see children born with disorders and diseases. The water in the wells has been affected and has turned acidic. The river in which the company discharged effluents provides drinking water to neighbouring towns, passes through major heritage temples in Trichur such as Arattupuzha and Triprayar. What’s more troublesome and disturbing is that this river connects to the beach in Chavakkad near Guruvayur and hence would affect marine lives as well. Our community has been protesting for years and have been fighting the battle with this company. The youth in our community have had rely hunger strike and held press conferences for this issue however we need more support to get as many people on board. There has been a non-violent strike for more than 50 days and the hunger strike has crossed 24 days. Please sign this petition and support our fight against this company.

  • MLA N.A Haris - Arrange to remove garbage dumps that has been settling in Shanti Nagar
    Garbage dumps have become a common issue in Bangalore, but unless and until we citizens take a stand and bring it to the notice of necessary officials and fight for a healthy living environment, we may have to keep facing the consequences of living in such a unhealthy neighbourhood. Right to clean environment has been held to be implicit by the Indian Supreme Court in the guarantee of Right to Life under Article 21 of the Indian Constitution. So we are only fighting for our RIGHT!! Kindly support me in taking this eye-sore away from our neighbourhood and have a cleanly environment for our children and elders.
