Water Conservation

I am now in class 8th. We have stapig_final_blue_05-7-09littlerted reading about water conservation an our social science subject. Water conservation is going on becoming a subject of public interest in the today’s world.

Water is very important content. With out water there is no life in earth. We use water in so many ways in our daily life.Water is needed for growing food, keeping ourselves clean, generating power, controlling fire and most importantly to stay alive! This list is simply non-ending. This shows that water is an integral part of our daily life and we are heavily dependent on it. 

Water conservation by its name can be easily identify what it means. It is just giving our part in saving our precious resource water for future use.

When we say about water conservation, a question simply crreps into one’s mind that what is the actual need of saving water? There is so much water present on the earth?                                                                                                                                            The simple answer to this question is that fresh, clean water is a limited resource. Most of the planet is covered in water, it is salt water that can only be consumed by humans and other species after undergoing desalination, which is an expensive process. Therefore there is the need to save it!

THE ACTUAL CRISIS

  • 97 % of the Earth’s water is salt water.
  •  The percentage of the world’s total water is available to drink is less than 1 %.

 

For global attention to this important topic of water conservation, United Nations General Assembly decided in 1993 that a day should be made of water conservation and it was decided that it would be held on 22nd of March every year. So we should also save water. Given below are some of the major tips about water conservation.

  • Turn off the tap when you brush your teeth – this can save 6 litres of water per minute.
  • Take a shorter shower. Shower can use anything between 6 and 45 litres per minute.
  • Always use full loads in your washing machine and dishwasher – this cuts out unnecessary washes in between.
  • Fix a dripping tap. A dripping tap can waste 15 litres of water a day, or 5,500 litres of water a year.
  • Water your garden with a watering can rather than a hosepipe. A hosepipe uses 1,000 litres of water an hour.
  • Always try to buy water-efficient goods when you need to replace household products. You can now buy water-efficient showerheads, taps, toilets, washing machines, dishwashers and many other water-saving products.
  • Avoid long showers.

As we all know that small differences can make great changes. So let’s do our part to save life on earth!!

My Transfer Case

Everybody knows that there comes changes in life time an again. There is no one in this beatiful world that has not seen changes in his or her life. Likewise there also came a turn in my life too. My father got a transfer to Delhi from Varanasi, The City Of Ghats.

I was feeling very dissapointed when father came and broke the news of his transfer. It was a very sad oment for me. All the happy moments that I spent with my best friends came flasing infront of my eyes. It is a usual process that if anyne is getting parted with its one of the most favourite thing, he fells very distreesed. I was also at the same position at that time.

When we begin things, not always there are all things good. I also started thinking about the drawbacks of this dcision. I was then comforted by my enthusiastei sister Navya, who was seeming pleased with this decision.

Things began to change in my mind as I started thinking about the positive sides of this decision. I thoght that it must be intereseting about having new friends, new school and new teachers.

I have also became excited now and lets see that how much time it requires for me to set up perfectly in the culture of Delhi, the capital of India.

Char Dham

Badrinath, Kidarnath, Hemkund Sahib for Sikhs, Gangotri and Yamunotri are some of the places where many tourists go to worship. They are located in Himalayas.

Every year many tourists visit these temples and sacred places to worship. The season to go to these temples is from April last till June last. There are many guest houses as well as dhramshalas where people could stay at the night.

In June 2013, in the middle of pilgrimage season, torrential rains and resulting flash floods nearly destroyed the Kedarnath town. Hundreds of people were feared killed and thousands of others (mostly pilgrims) were reported missing or stranded due to landslides around Kedarnath.

Initial aerial photos showed that the Kedarnath Temple itself was still standing amid surrounding debris due to its architectural design. However the temple complex and surrounding areas suffered heavy damage.

The Badrinath, Hemkund Sahib for Sikhs, Gangotri and Yamunotri are also heavily damaged. You can say that whole Uttarakhand was damaged. Many small cities like Karnaprayag, Rudraprayag, Deoprayag are also damaged severely.

The state government said that the yatra of char dhams may revive only after 3 years. Thousands of people died, many left homeless due to flash floods. Many people are saying that this is the cause of the global warming caused by us due to which the Himalayan glaciers are melting.

Reserches from many institutes are telling that there are 200 such glaciers are formed in Himalayas and hey may break any time beacause their walls have become weak. The tsunami came because one such glacier broke down. So we can imagine that what will be the condition when 200 glaciers will break!

Therefore, we should pray to god that he should forgive our sins and do not cause such disastrous thing in anyone’s life. And even we should be aware that we should keep our environment clean and beautiful so that such should not repeat again.

So friends, what are you waiting for? Save the enviornment and take small measures to keep your surrounding enviornment clean.

Hear are some steps-

1) Minimize pesticide use.

2) Put leaves in a compost heap instead of burning them or throwing them away. Yard debris too large for your compost bin should be taken to a yard-debris recycler.

3) Use a microwave when- ever you can instead of a conventional oven or stove.

4) Plant trees to shade your home.

5) Walk or ride your bike instead of driving, whenever possible.


6) Join a carpool or vanpool to get to work.

7) Paint with brushes or rollers instead of using spray paints to minimize harmful emissions.

8) Use solar power for home and water heating.

9) Avoid slow-burning, smoldering fires. They produce the largest amount of pollution.

IPL(Indian Premier League)

The Indian Premier League (IPL) is a league for Twenty20 cricket championship in India. It was initiated by Lalit Modi, who served as the league’s first Chairman and Commissioner and Board For Control Of Cricket In India (BCCI), headquartered in Mumbai and is supervised by BCCI Vice President Rajeev Shukla,who serves as the league’s Chairman and commissioner. It is currently contested by nine teams, consisting of players from around the cricketing world. It was started after an altercation between the BCCI and the IPL.

There have been six seasons of IPL since it was played first in 2008. It comes after every year. It was last played in 2013. Now let me tell about its history.

THIRD SEASON

The third season returned to India and it was the first IPL tournament that was broadcast live on YouTube. The final four matches of the tournament were screened in 3D across movie halls in India. Chennai Super Kings defeated Mumbai Indians in the finals to win their first title.

FOURTH SEASON

On 21 March 2010, it was announced in Chennai that two new teams from Pune and Kochi will be added to the IPL for the fourth season. However, the bid around the kochi franchise turned controversial resulting in the resignation of minister Shashi Tharoor. But on fifth December 2010 it was decided that Kochi will take part in the fourth season of IPL.

Chennai Super Kings won their second consecutive title after defeating the Royal Challengers Bangalore by 58 runs in the final. 

FIFTH SEASON

Fifth season was organized in 2012. It was the first time in IPL that spot -fixing case and various other hurdles came to news. The fifth season of IPL was won by KKR (Kolkata Night Riders).

SIXTH SEASON

The season started on 3 April. Nine teams are participating in the sixth season.

On 26 May 2013, Mumbai Indians defeated CSK by 23 runs for their first title win. Dhoni scored an unbeaten 63 of 45 balls and Kieron Pollard was declared Man of the match for his unbeaten innings of 60 runs from 32 balls.

Animal Cruelty

Cruelty Towards Animals

All living things have a right to live on this Earth but, we, very often become, totally, insensitive to their pain, only because they don’t have a  animals can’t speak the language of humans, voice.

Cruelty means inflicting pain and causing suffering. Animal cruelty is a nationwide problem rapidly growing in today’s society.

Animals are being beaten and starved everyday and millions of helpless animals die each year because of heartless owners. There are many forms of animal cruelty; some of the most common forms are scientific research, abandonment, and mistreatment.

Companies test products on animals for the safety of humans. Monkeys, rats, mice, dogs, and cats are some of the candidates used for laboratory research.

When God created this planet he had a specific purpose for all living things But Man in his greed had recklessly been plundering the natural abode of animals, killing them for pleasure, for food, for their skin and other parts of the body, and training some to serve his needs.

In many religions, animals were worshipped in the past and any cruelty towards them was condemned by the society and so their rights were protected, but, today we are becoming insensitive not only towards animals but also towards other human beings.

So let us join our hands together and take a decision to save the helpless animals.

Pollution

In recent years the problem of pollution has become very acute. It is the industrialized west which takes it seriously, because it is suffering from its injurious effects. In India, sufficient attention has not been paid to it. If we do not tackle this problem now, future generations will suffer from the harmful effects of pollution.

This problem assumes different forms such as Air pollution, Water pollution, Soil pollution, Noise pollution and Paper pollution. Trees have been cut down, on an high scale. So the main cause of air and water pollution is unbalanced industrial growth and urbanization and deforestation.

The owners of industries dump waste material on the surface of the earth or in rivers. So, water is polluted and the waste on the earth produces different poisonous gases which pollute the air. On the other hand, forests where purity air have been cut down and new cities and industries have been established in their place. The cutting of the forests causes what is called “The Green House Effects”. It results in the heating of the earth’s surface which has serious problems for life on this planet.

Trees and plants turn carbon-dioxide into oxygen but when they are cut down, the air is not purified. Deforestation also causes soil erosion. The rich soil is either washed away by water or blown away by the wind.

Polluted water is used for watering the plants and vegetables. In this way, vegetables and crops are polluted. Pesticides are also a source of pollution to our crops, vegetables and fruits.

 

Most Food and snacks ready for sale at the pavement, street corner alongside the road are uncovered and dirty. They are cooked with polluted air. People are tempted to eat and taste them because of their habit and greed. These unhygienic foods are also harmful for our health.

Sound pollution is very common to all. The noise of vehicles, mills, factories, industries are really boring and unbearable. This also causes dull of hearing, headache etc.

To fight against these pollutions, we must ensure some steps. We must stop polluting the air by smoke. For that, we have to reduce the amount of petrol driven cars and vehicles on the road. We must plant more and more tree.

We should cultivate fresh vegetables so that we can reduce food pollution. We should not hear songs with a loud volume on the sound box. We should also stop the mill, factory or industry owners to build these in the city. These should be made in a planned way.

People should be made full of awareness of bad-effects of the types of pollutions created by them. Thus, we should take measures protect our nature.
