Life still has a meaning

If there a future there is a time for mending -
Time to see your troubles coming to an ending.

Life is never hopeless however great your sorrow
If you are looking forward to a new tomorrow.

If there is time for wishing then there is time for hoping -
When through doubt and darkness you are blindly groping.

Though the heart be heavy and hurt yoy may be feeling -
If there is time for praying there is time for healing.

So if through your window there is a new day breaking -
Thank God for the promise, though mind and soul be aching.

If with harvest over there is grain enough for gleaning -
There is a new tomorrow and life still has meaning.

World Population Day 2010: Everyone Counts

Counting everyone is an integral part of ensuring that we take everyone into account. Good demographic data is critical for planning schools, health systems and public transportation, for designing policies based on future population projections, for monitoring the effectiveness of service delivery and much more.

This year World Population Day highlights the importance of data for development. The focus is on the 2010 round of the population and housing census, data analysis for development and UNFPA’s lead role in population and development.

Reliable data makes a difference, and the key is to collect, analyze and disseminate data in a way that drives good decision making. The numbers that emerge from data collection can illuminate important trends. What striking situation does research reveal in your country? What do the numbers tell you about progress toward meeting the MDGs? Are certain groups getting left behind ?

Prakriti Jal Urja Pump for Community Rural Water Supply and Micro-Irrigation

Colonel (Retd.) BinayKumar (Hazaribagh district of Jharkhand) is promoting an unique pump (he named it PrakritiJalUrja) in Jharkhnad which runs on hydraulic pressure. It does not require fuel of any kind (diesel / petrol, electricity, human or animal driven). It runs for 24 hours. It is environment friendly and pollution free.  It can be used for multipurpose i.e. Community Rural Water Supply, Micro-irrigation,  for animal use etc. It is suitable for hilly and mountainous areas of India. Quality of life of poor tribal people who lives in remote hilly and forest area will improve significantly if we promote this pump widely.

CONGRATULATION Col. BinayKumar for your innovation and continuous effort.
