Not(My) Our new year resolution

To all my dear Indians,

We are the people of a land with great civilization which had had a great history,culture,heritage and traditions behind it.To concise in short about the truth behind the indian civilisation,we are a nation in the world where we had a set of noble war qualities which no other nation has had ever in this world,i.e

" If person run away showing his back and chasing him or beheading him is not at all a victory,
If a person declares in war that i cannot fight with you,then declining the war with him is the noble code of war,
If a man is on the walls he should not fight with a man on the streets,
If the sun is set and darkness prevails then pausing the war for the day,
If at all a king has won a war with his enemy then the king should not possess or take away the wealth of his enemy kingdom or enslaving the enemy kingdom,
Rather he should find a suitable person of that land and should restore back the kingdom who could protect the culture and tradition of that land"

One of the chola emperor of south India has conquered from south to the Ganges region at north during 12th Century A.D and he was called as "Gangaikondacholan" in Tamil;Meaning a emperor who's might is spread up to Ganges region,then what he did do you know? the king has given back the land to its own next suitable heir and restored their kingdom.

The above are the greatest noble code of war which we Indians can claim to the world that we had been and also continuing being good to the world.But because of being good we had been invaded by a barbaric,inhuman empires for 600 years which has ruined the tradition and culture of this nation.But now its the time for young Indians to take and follow the pledge for unity with all our might and bring back the glory of this great nation which can only be done by the 65% of Young INDIAN population only, which no other nation has this demograph;We have all the might and power to do it,only thing my dear young INDIANS you have to come out of the shoddy caste,religious and regional prejudices.These are the evils of mankind and hindrance for unity of the great nation for peaceful resolution.Also do consider visiting and joining a leadership development for India FTI site

Hence let the below mantra be reinstated,Re inculcated and re-emphasis strongly in all indians mind that Young Indians from North east india,Northern india,western india and southern India  we are all one,and we belong and own the land of great civilisation which is now our duty to protect the glory of this nation.Now there is no Mahathma,S.C.Bose,V.O.C,Swami Vivekananda,B.G.Tilak or Arabindo etc to protect us,its the time for 660 million(No country in the world has such a mighty human resource) young Indians to take part in nation building and take up leadership roles.

My not limited to me,our new year resolution should be and for ever every Indian should not forget this pledge,

{In Tamil}

"இந்தியா என் தாய்நாடு,
இந்தியர்கள் அனைவரும் எனது சகோதர சகோதரிகள்.
என் நாட்டை நான் மிகவும் நேசிக்கிறேன்,
என் நாட்டின் பழம்பெருமைக்காகவும், பண்முக மரபு சிறப்பிற்காகவும் நான் பெருமிதம் கொள்கிறேன்.
என் நாட்டின் பெருமைக்கு தகுந்து விளங்கிட பெரிதும் பாடுபடுவேன்.
எனது பெற்றோர், ஆசிரியர் மற்றும் பெரியோர்களை மதித்து நடந்துகொள்வேன்.
அனைவரிடமும் அன்பும் மரியாதையும் காட்டுவேன்.
என் நாட்டிற்கும் நாட்டு மக்களுக்கும் உழைத்திட பெரிதும் முனைந்து நிற்பேன்.
என் மக்கள் அனைவரும் நலமும் வளமும் பெருவதிலேதான் நான் மகிழ்ச்சி அடைகிறேன்.
வாழ்க நமது மணித்திரு நாடு!"

{In English}

"     India is my country and all Indians are my brothers and sisters.
       I love my country and I am proud of its rich and varied heritage.
I shall always strive to be worthy of it.
I shall give my parents, teachers and all elders respect and treat everyone with courtesy.
To my country and my people, I pledge my devotion. In their well-being and prosperity alone, lies my happiness."

Nowadays certain shameful incidents are happening among our youths like disrespecting or critizing the great legend of all time our Father of nation,people does not know about him completely and making derogatory comments on him is as same as bad mouthing or ciritizing our own father of our house.Hence first of all we should respect our own Indian people, then only one can expect or earn respect from outsiders or others.If you happen to travel abroad or read some article of how people living in Japan or Korea,kindly watch it;I have worked and lived in those country i learnt from them and also i am quite surprised about their national spirit,love,kindness and respect towards their own people.These are the great qualities we should be cultivate in our minds as well as to on coming young generations minds in the school level onward.Money or wealth geneartion alone should not be goal but with moral values then only a society or nation can survive for long.

Jai Hind!Jai Bharat!

Educated Youths should take part in Nation building.: Don't kill their future dreams-A claim to uplift Indian Beggars

Educated Youths should take part in Nation building.: Don't kill their future dreams-A claim to uplift Indian Beggars: TIRE ASIA.T

Don't kill their future dreams-A claim to uplift Indian Beggars

I am quite disturbed every day on seeing children, women with child begging in railway stations,temples or public places in our country.Its not that other countries are not having poverty or beggars,but the extent we face is really making us shame and makes me to ask what are the 800+MPs representing people’s concern for 70 years doing?And apart from that what each street has a political party with a leader who declares himself that he is savior or god who will save the people,that is the reason now GOD has left its presence(emphasis mine).India is a home of Beggars. I don’t stress this or manifest in order to belittle our nation,but in no other country you will find so many beggars. The reason is that begging is a profession in India. Many of the beggars are beggars by birth. They do not like to change their profession. The make their living with ease. Most of the beggars are idlers. They cause a great loss of labor and industry to the nation. Their manual labor could have been better utilized in factories or mills or very especially Agricultural sectors where every body is trying to leave that profession because of lack of labor capital . They would have produced useful work. Hence the healthy beggars should not be given any alms or money. They should be discouraged in every ways so that they may become the useful members of the society.To make it happen I would not recommend it to be a government job,the NGOs and many social reformers can have a great role here,but the big question is what is the solution to get rid of beggary and bring them in the main stream population. I have well examined few, which I would propose as a solution here in my blog.

Prelude about beggary in India:

The Oscar winning film, ‘Slumdog Millionaire’, highlighted the plight of hundreds of thousands of children in India who are being forced to beg by mafia-style gangs. There are an estimated 300,000 child beggars in India, although some organisations claim it is as many as a million. Every year, 44,000 children fall into the clutches of the gangs. Many of them are deliberately maimed. Arms and legs are forcibly amputated, others are cruelly blinded. The gangs also pour acid on to children’s bodies leaving them with suppurating wounds. The more they are tortured or tormented, the more sympathy they gain when they beg. They are trained to approach certain kinds of people and use certain mannerisms, to extract even more money. There are many child beggars who are not mutilated, but those with the worst injuries make the most money, earning up to ten times the amount that millions in India survive on each day. Of course the children do not see any of their earnings. These are handed over to the gangmasters, and if a child does not make their target that day they are beaten and tortured. In Mumbai in particular, visitors are often approached by a child or woman wanting some powdered milk to feed a baby. They will assist you to a nearby stall or shop that conveniently happens to sell tins or boxes of such “milk”. However, the milk will be expensively priced (often around 200 rupees) and if you hand over the money for it, the shopkeeper and the beggar will simply split the proceeds between them.Beggars also rent babies from their mothers each day, to give their begging more credibility.

It look that we have too much poverty since we are in lack of resources but that is completely false,recently I have jotted few words in my FB timeline as mentioned below which could explain you well,

“India has 180 Million hectares(12 Months sunshine),U.S has 160 Million hectares (3 to 4 months sunshine),China has 90 Million hectares(2 Months of sunshine only)arable and cultivatable land,but the yield taken in India is least where as U.S and china takes 10 and 2 times than that of India respectively;If Punjab,western U.P,Tamilnadu and A.P were properly irrigated and cultivated it is quite possible to feed the ENTIRE ASIA.The problem is Agriculture is not empowered or considered as an enterprise or industry and not respected in India which we could say still we have the colonial hangover of British saying Indians are countrymen and they don't respect us as for being in farming.The same now stupid Indians saying to our own people in way our policies are so weak in order to make farmers suicide.we need right reforms in agricultural sector and fake socialist freebies,NREGA,Rs.600 monthly scheme all this should be shutdown at first else labor cost for farming will increase farmers cannot do farming since there are notorious mendacious,venal politicians are there who are ready to steal money from tax payers and give it to drones and lazy drunken idiots who worth nothing”

Why there are so many Beggars in India?

The common thing with people in India are religious minded. The Hindus believe in the rebirth of soul after death. They think that if they would do good actions, God would be pleased with them and he would send them to this world again as men. The Muslims too believe that if they would do well to their fellow-beings, they would be sent to Jannat (paradise) on the Day of Judgment. Soon all people are charitable by nature. Hence they distribute food among the beggars.The charitable deposition of the people encourages beggary. Some people just evade to get rid from them for sake they used to offer some money.People can get bread, flour, clothes and money without any effort of hard work on their part. So they like to be beggars. Besides this, the absence of workhouse or poor houses compels the blind, the lame and disabled people to take to begging. They have to means of supporting themselves. When they get no help from the Government, they become beggars.This where NGOs and social reformers have huge scope.
Besides ordinary beggars, there are religious beggars. The Muslim beggars are called faqirs, while the Hindus beggars are called Sadhus. Some of these faquirs and Sadhus are very pious and learned. They give up everything of this world.But now its rare to see gems.

How it affects the BRAND INDIA image to outside world and its impact:

India was one of the great ancient civilization, has continuously maintained around 18% of share in world trade for almost 18 centuries, it has not even sent a solider to conquer any of its neighboring countries though it had the power to do. Such a cultured civilization and greatness this land has got once. Now the modern India, with a billion plus population has a booming economy, many eminent and powerful people feature in the world's richest list. This is how the world knew about us, ironically once a visitor from outside world comes to India for business, tour, or as a visitor seeing the pathetic reality aside felt bad to see many disturbing incidents of beggars in large mass in public places.Apart from these there are around 21 Million NRIs outside INDIA who are much frustrated and they are the far more criticizer of india than the outside visitors and branded it as a poor,rotten,uncivilized nation etc rather providing solution for the problem.This affects the image of a great nation and who will reconstruct this image?do you think government can?it is the most ignorant and least bothered failure institution in India to protect its own image.Though around 1000s of IFS officers are there with government it does not teach or tell them how to make a appeal to NRIs to protect the image of this nation or rather being as a cultural defenders of this nation,they both spoiled the image of this nation.
Tourism is one of the biggest revenue/employment generation sector which india has regret at huge pay,where as China and south Korea generates billions of revenue and employment in this sector. By having such a vast inequality and improper infrastructure we lack millions of potential tourists entering this nation since we failed to put things in order. Some of the below are the general comments by tourists. 

Tourist Comments:
1.When contacted, railway protection force admitted that beggars create menace on the station, but claimed, "We are trying to remove them from the platforms. We have also started a drive to remove and prosecute them, but they keep coming back.'' He further claimed that the number of beggars was high therefore, they continue troubling commuters. Meanwhile, tourists complain that it is horrible to wait at the platforms while beggars keep on troubling them.
2.”In the three years we have lived in India our hearts have hardened a little. Having seen so many chronically disabled and mangled souls it is not so easy to be moved by an able-bodied pan-handler. But it's a source of guilt: Many of those who appear healthy are drug addicts, alcoholics or mentally ill and abandoned by their families.”
3."You took pity on a beggar and gave alms. What you didn't realise is that these people are forced to beg by others who exploit them and make money through them. So next time you feel pity for a beggar, stop and think! Are you really helping the needy?".
4.”It seems cynical. Delhi is hosting the Commonwealth Games next year and is desperate to clean up its streets,numerous in living streets with no shelter  and show the world a modern India.”

Proposal to Eradicate Beggars:

I have researched many papers regarding the eradication of poverty and beggers in street as mentioned below which I do not know how far is effective and at last i have given my view also, 

”Every district collector/magistrate should be empowered to identify such people with their names (names could be misleading because they may not be having a birth certificate or any other source of valid identification) Once the identification process is over, the next step is to hand them over to institutions like Missionaries of Charity. Meanwhile, both the Government of India and top five hundred corporations of India (Fortune 500 companies of India can come forward under Corporate Social Responsibility) must tie up and forge an alliance with institutions like Missionaries of Charity, under Public Private Partnership (PPP) scheme. The scheme should be aimed at uplifting each and every beggar in India.The suggested scheme under PPP is to fine-tune this expertise so that each and every beggar gets a permanent shelter to live in, get proper food to eat and decent clothes to wear. Once these basic essentials are assured, he/she can be given training on jobs like weaving clothes on loom, art, crafts, and handicrafts and so on with the help of mechanized / semi-mechanized machines. Additionally, the finance organization of such missionaries ought to be of high order, which should be the driving force for corporate to donate money for such social causes.The government can become the facilitator by assuring reservation of quotas for all the goods produced by the beggars. Such reservations can be done in all big malls and duty free shops. Additionally, the government can also mandate export of such products to foreign countries where people love to associate with such.”

However, in my view I would plead to all citizens not to give even a single paisa for beggars at any point of time, if so it is as if you are spoiling your own brat by feeding more candy.If you are really concerning the future of beggars or life of beggars then you should teach him how to do fishing,and should not feed him the fish directly; then every individual will becomes lazy and definetly no one will work to earn money for their living. As everyone knows that in India around 65% of employment or people engagement are in agricultural sectors in rural India where it’s getting decline now since farmers are really suffering from agricultural labors to continue their occupation and many withdraw from farming because they don’t get manpower to execute their jobs.Another major concern for agricultural farmers are they have to pay high labor cost say Rs.250 to 350 per day for doing work in agricultural land.its quite pity to note that even engineers are struggling to get a job nowadays for this money.Though the farmers pay high and execute the work,their output after getting is yield is quite low.This is quite disheartening and they feel disappointed for being in that occupation.The root cause for high capital labor cost in agricultural sector is because of detoriating,unethical government schemes which empower useless lazy labor where as discourages the farmers extremely.i.e when a labor gets Rs.1000 to 2000 per month under government schemes like NREGA etc then there is less drive or motivation for him to work and earn money for his living.hence in order to work he demands more money from farmers ultimately farmer is unable to provide the demanded amount as he gets very meager amount from the agricultural yield.
So the above provides you an idea that we have so much of demand for agricultural sectors labors or manpower to do a very productive job.Hence what I suggest is that these lazy beggars should be a shown a way that there are opportunisties for them to earn and work in agricultural sectors and they should guided,driven in agricultural sectors for grooming their life and getting inline to main stream population.There is a saying in economics for eradicating poverty “poverty is there when there is scarcity for water, all the problems disease,illiteracy etc are surrounded, hence show people the place where there is water or arrange water to reach them,then they will make a sustainable living of their own”.

I am with the above metaphor to plead all of you that if you are concerned about the future of beggars pls don’t provide them money in their begging pan rather show them a way to sustainable living that is work and earn-Rural India needs plenty of labors for agricultural activities. The renaissance for changing beggar’s future is in our hands and we should do necessary support through NGOs or creative organization to transform their life.

“A Hammer shatters a glass, but forges a steel" 

The Money provided to a beggar can get a meal for a day,but will not forge his future hence show the way how to work and then earn money”

Jai Hind!Jai Bharat!

Guar seeds-A poor man’s curry turns into a vital element for fracking

It’s often the most hotly debated question in the quest for natural gas. Much of the argument against natural gas drilling – known as fracking – is that the chemicals used during the process could have detrimental effects on the surrounding environment. The chemicals that gas companies use - which can include water, sand, salt, citric acid, benzene or lead, according to a research report – can be hazardous if not properly isolated and stored. However, U.S state and federal lawmakers are working to establish a system of rules to regulate the drilling, and most gas and oil companies have said maintaining the environment and preventing leaks are paramount concerns for them as well. At this critical circumstance there is an innovative solution to the problem for preventing environmental menace, that is the guar seeds commonly called cluster beans grows in dry climate. The recent discovery states that guar powder gum could stiffen water so much that a mixture is able to carry sand sideways into wells drilled by horizontal fracturing, also known as fracking. This discovery really stands apt to recall the stance"Necessity is the mother of invention".

For centuries, Indian farmers used guar to feed their families and their cattle. There are better sources of nutrition, but few that grow in the Rajasthani desert, a land rich in culture but poor in rain. Broader commercial interest in guar first developed when food companies found that it absorbs water like a souped-up cornstarch, and a powdered form of the bean is now widely used to thicken ice cream and keep pastries crisp.

The fracking boom in the United States has led to a surge in natural gas production, a decline in oil imports and a gradual transition away from coal-fired power plants. Fracking may also have spoiled some rural water supplies and caused environmental damage in parts of the United States, but it is hard to find anyone in Rajasthan who sees fracking as anything but a blessing.

By the way what is mean by the so called fracking?

Fracking, or hydraulic fracturing, is the process of extracting natural grass from shale rock layers deep within the earth. Fracking makes it possible to produce natural gas extraction in shale plays that were once unreachable with conventional technologies. Recent advancements in drilling technology have led to new man-made hydraulic fractures in shale plays that were once not available for exploration. In fact, three dimensional imaging helps scientists determine the precise locations for drilling.Horizontal drilling (along with traditional vertical drilling) allows for the injection of highly pressurized fracking fluids into the shale area. This creates new channels within the rock from which natural gas is extracted at higher than traditional rates. This drilling process can take up to a month, while the drilling teams delve more than a mile into the Earth’s surface. After which, the well is cased with cement to ensure groundwater protection, and the shale is hydraulically fractured with water and other fracking fluids.

What is Shale gas?

Gas trapped in sedimentary rocks below the earth’s surface — is the new focus area in the US, Canada and China as an alternative to conventional oil and gas for meeting growing energy needs.

Energy exploration companies also are looking at guar alternatives (existing ones for the food industry are either not available in large amounts or are unsuitable). Both Halliburton and Schlumberger giants in this field are exploring alternatives with synthetic hydrocolloids. “They have all got something, but nothing works as well as guar,” Sources says.
“Without guar, you cannot have fracturing fluids,” said Michael J. Economides, a professor of engineering at the University of Houston who is a fracking expert. “And what everybody is worried about is that there is virtually no guar out there now.”

The origin behind Guar:

Guar or cluster bean(in Tamil கொத்தவரைக்காய்) is believed to have originated in Africa but is been grown throughout southern Asia since ancient times as vegetable and fodder crop. Guar has been cultivated in India and Pakistan for ages for use of its tender pods as fresh vegetables and other parts of the lants to be used as cattle feed. The plant is extremely drought‐resistant, being able to absorb efficiently all ground water. It grows therefore easily in those semi‐arid regions where less hardy crops perish. The major world supplier of guar seed are India, Pakistan and United States.

But now potential efforts are taken seriously in guar cultivation in China, Australia, California and south America are rasing as there were huge demand for it in future for gas exploring energy industries. Hence now its listed among the top five commodities traded in the futures market along with gold, silver, chana and copper.

Production of Guar is mainly concentrated in the arid region of north west india Rajasthan, Gujarat, Haryana and some part of Punjab. Rajasthan contributes more than 70% in Guar production therefore industry based on Guar is also concentrated at Jodhpur and surroundings in Rajasthan. India is the largest producer of Guar seed in the world, constitute about 80% of the total production in which Rajasthan is a leading producer of guar accounting for about 75% of all India’s output. The below chart could picturize the state wise share of guar.

This gives a clear sign that India has potential growth for cultivating guar seeds and the major contribution comes from north western part where as southern India also has potential possibility and oppurtuinity to cultivate this rather using it for fodder,vegetables and conventional usages.Also many guar gum production industry has spurred up in rajasthan.I believe the awareness and knowledge about the guar seeds applications is not well known to the south Indian farmers.

Many energy analyst in U.S, cautioned that the fracking boom could slow and that guar alternatives could be developed. But Mr. Economides, the Houston fracking expert, dismissed such talk. “There are no easy or cheap alternatives to guar,” he said.That is good news for guar producers. Farmers, traders and processors around Jodhpur admitted fulfilling some long-held dreams with the profits they made last year. As western nation are trying out innovative alternatives for meeting the soaring energy demands through methods like shale gas exploration through  fracking techniques.By the way India will launch its first-ever bid round for exploration of shale oil and gas by December 2013, Oil Minister S Jaipal Reddy said.

“We are pursuing the development of shale gas in the country. We have undertaken the mapping of shale gas resources and are working to put in place a regulatory regime for licensing round in shale gas, by December 2013,” he said. Six basins,  Cambay, Assam-Arakan, Gondawana, KG onshore, Cauvery onshore and Indo Gangetic basins, have been identified that may have shale gas potential.

Asian Juggernaut China aims for bigger share in south Asian water lifeline

Water shortages are in much of Asia is beginning to threaten rapid economic modernization, prompting the building of upstream projects on international rivers. If water geopolitics were to spur interstate tensions through reduced water flows to neighboring states, the India progress could stall. Water has emerged as a key issue that could determine whether Asia is headed toward mutually beneficial cooperation or deleterious interasian competition. No country could influence that direction more than China, which controls the Tibetan plateau the source of most major rivers of Asia. Tibet’s vast glaciers and high altitude have endowed it with the world's greatest river systems. Its river waters are a lifeline to the world's two most-populous countries China and India as well as to Bangladesh, Myanmar, Bhutan, Nepal, Cambodia, Pakistan, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam. These countries make up 47 % of the global population. Yet Asia is a water-deficient continent. Although home to more than half of the human population, Asia has less fresh water 3,920 cubic meters per person than any continent besides Antarctica. Household water consumption in Asia is rising rapidly, according to a 2006 U.N. report, but such is the water scarcity that not many Asians can aspire to the lifestyle of Americans, who daily use 400 liters per person, or more than 2.5 times the average in Asia.
While intrastate water-sharing disputes have become rife in India and in asian level with Pakistan to Southeast Asia and China it is the potential interasain conflict over river-water resources that should be of greater concern.Since china has greater influence over Tibet, where major rivers originate, including the Indus, the Mekong, the Yangtze, the Yellow, the Salween, the Brahmaputra, the Karnali and the Sutlej. Among Asia's mighty rivers, only the Ganges starts from the Indian side of the Himalayas.
The unbalanced availability of water within some states (abundant in some areas but deficient in others) has given rise to grand ideas from linking rivers in India to diverting the fast-flowing Brahmaputra northward to feed the arid areas in the Chinese heartland. As water anguish has been aggravated in its north due to environmentally unsustainable intensive farming, China has increasingly turned its attention to the abundant water reserves that the Tibetan plateau holds. It has dammed rivers, not just to produce hydropower but also to channel waters for irrigation and other purposes, and is currently toying with massive interbasin and inter-river water-transfer projects.
After building two dams upstream, China is building at least three more on the Mekong, inflaming passions in Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia and Thailand. Several Chinese projects in west-central Tibet bearing on river-water flows into India, but Beijing is reluctant to share information.The 10 major watersheds formed by the Himalayas and Tibetan highlands spread out river waters far and wide in Asia. Control over the 2.5 million-square-km Tibetan plateau gives China tremendous advantage, besides access to vast natural resources. Having extensively contaminated its own major rivers through unbridled industrialization, China now threatens the ecological viability of river systems tied to South and Southeast Asia in its bid to meet its thirst for water and energy.
As in the past, no country is going to be more affected by Chinese plans and projects in Tibet than India.The potential threat to use will be once china influence the water resrves originating from Tibet,it may affect many south asian nations mainly india and balngaldesh,hence infiltration from bangalesh to NE regions of india will raise as more people will be migrating for survival.Also we need to solve our own interstate river confict at high priority.
Despite having interstate and interasian water conflict,india is having one of the worst water transport facilty.In eastern UP, contaminated water may have led to the death of 50,000 children over the last 35 years? These 50,000 children died due to ground water contamination & lack of piped water supply. Mostly 40%-50% of water supplied to cities is lost in distribution, it leaks through the pipes and is wasted. The same is the case with power generated is lost heavily in India in distribution itself compared to china(6.8% of total power lost in transmission and distribution-china;23.4% of total power lost in India).This shows how inefficient we are in conserving energy resources. As per official estimates, India might run short of water by 2050, when the population is expected to peak at 1.7 billion.

The point to ponder is that water not only can cause huge social unrest, it can actually trigger water wars too, Chinese aggravated plans to dam the Brahmaputra: "The mega-rerouting (of Tibetan waters northwards) would constitute the declaration of a water war on lower-riparian India and Bangladesh affecting other south east Asian nations".
I have come across the work of Krishna Khanna Ji of iwatch regarding the drinking water project “Community based Safe Drinking, Cooking, Bathing and Swimming Water @ 1 paisa per litre for Rural & Urban India”. 80% of all diseases are water borne in india. One of Cheapest green technology for safe drinking water using only common salt & power as raw materials. For 1 million litres of Safe Water only 10KW power & 5kgs of salt are required. Solar powered units are also available, as many parts of the country do not have reliable power. More than 1100 installations are already running from Kashmir to Kanyakumari. Bottled water costs 2000 times more than sanitised community water. WHO has listed electro chlorination as one of the process of disinfection of drinking water for Preventive Health Care.
