Environmental woes of India – a quality आसनसोल
Environmental woes of India – a quality issue
Given the state of our environment it is evident that we are not meeting our stated environmental goals and objectives. At its core, the problem is an implementation issue and hence a quality issue. This article briefly examines 9 of the 14 points on quality management advocated By Edward Deming. Perhaps, by taking these points to heart, our environmental woes can be substantially improved.
1. Create a constancy of purpose focused on the improvements of products and services.
We can interpret this as meaning constancy of purpose focused on the improvement of the environment. This is a very important concept that policy makers often struggle with. As governments change hands so do economic , social and environmental policies. Constancy of purpose – protection and preservation of the environment – is lost. Hence, we need to ensure constancy of purpose across governments by ensuring autonomy and independence from government interference. Also they must have veto power over government projects, policies and decisions.
2. Adopt a new philosophy and recognize we are in a different era
Today the world faces an imminent crisis in the form of climate change. There are no ready solutions available on the horizon. It is time for nations to shoulder the burden of climate change together. Nations cannot adopt business as usual mentality. We need to adopt a new philosophy – clean energy, environmental preservation and protection, sustainable development etc. These ideas are here to stay and it is best we embrace it as quickly as possible.
3. Do not rely on mass inspection to control quality
This is based on the idea that prevention is better than cure. Rather than be reactive, we have to be proactive. We must invest in preventive measures and institute strict emission laws and regulations, invest in clean technology, provide incentives for businesses to switch to clean energy and renewables etc.
4. Do not award businesses to suppliers on the basis of price alone but also consider quality.
This applies to the choice of fossil fuel as the fuel to meet the energy needs of the nation. Largely it was an economic decision. Coal despite being the most pollutive of all the fossil fuels are favoured by nations because it is cheap – readily available and the conversion process is relatively inexpensive. ‘Cheap’ because its negative impact on the natural environment is not taken into consideration. However today coal is no longer the cheapest option in India. According to the The Economist India is the only country in the region where cost of producing solar power is almost 14% less than cost of electricity generated from coal. Based on the data compiled by global consultant Wood Mackenzie India’s levelised cost of electricity generation
· from fossil fuel stands at around $44.5 per MWh (Rs 3.05 per unit)
· from solar power generation stands at around $38.2 MWh (Rs 2.62 per unit)
· from onshore wind power generation stands at around $48.9 per MWh (Rs 3.36 per unit) 
In all the three instances, it is the cheapest provider in the region. It is a win win situation for India to move away from fossil fuels – particularly coal – and invest in renewables.
5. Focus on continuous improvement
Focus on continuous improvement in terms of attaining environmental goals. Constantly set new standards and hold the gains. This can only be assured when there is constancy of purpose and means to ensure constancy of purpose.
6. Practice modern training methods and invest in on the job training for all employees
Invest in new and emerging clean (modern) technologies like the High Efficiency Low Emission (HELE) technologies like the supercritical and ultra-supercritical combustion technologies . In fact clean technology like Fluidised Bed Combustion (FBC) provide a “very flexible method of electricity production – most combustible material can be burnt including coal, biomass and general waste. FBC systems improve the environmental impact of coal-based electricity, reducing SOx and NOx emissions by 90%.” That is a huge reduction. Currently the majority of the Indian coal plants are using subcritical (old) technology and count as some of the most pollutant plants in the world.
7. Improve leadership, practice modern supervision methods
The leadership must first educate itself on environment and energy matters. They must provide top priority to environment and energy concerns. The following are set of strategies recommended by the United Nations to promote renewable energy at a large scale (1) engage in awareness raising and access to information (2) develop academic curricula for renewable energy (3) remove policy and regulatory conflicts/gaps (4) pass renewable energy act (5) create regional grid and tackle imbalances through the grid. This will require collaboration and cooperation across nations. (6) focus on strategic development of a renewable energy industry and markets (7) develop product standards for biomass-derived fuels (8) map resources of renewable energy sources (9) tap into biomass energy potential . These should be the focus areas for the leaders .
8. Drive out fear
Energy self sufficiency is the overwhelming cry behind the push for coal energy in India. The solar industry in India is largely dependent on importation of Chinese solar panels and photovoltaic cells. Chinese firms supply about 80 per cent of solar cells and modules to India . But than this is true for many other nations as well. China is the world’s leading supplier of solar photovoltaic cells and panels, supplying 2/3 of the global supply. China accounts for 95% of rare earth production globally. The rare earth minerals are essential input in developing electronic and solar products. However, the rapidly rising domestic demand in China itself raises supply issues in the near future. For example, China already has solar capacity of 208GW, the highest in the world . India has 31GW solar capacity. China reached their 2020 solar target of 105GW in July 2017 - three years earlier where as India in all likelihood will miss its own stated target of 100GW of solar capacity by 2022 . Reverting back to the rare earth minerals, it is indeed highly likely that China will stringently control the production of these minerals in the years to come. Well as it turns out rare earth is not all that rare. Deposits exists outside of China, including in India . However, mining and processing poses considerable challenge with extensive negative environmental impact . But there is a silver lining here as well. Alternatives to rare earth materials are being researched and Lund University, Sweden, has come up with iron-based dyes to be used in solar cells in the future. ‘By using iron instead of other more expensive and rare metals, the production of solar cells and light catchers will become cheaper and more environmentally friendly.’ 
9. Eliminate targets, slogans, and numerical goals for the workforce
Zero Defect, Zero Effect has been the outcry of the Narendra Modi Government. The government has developed zed program with Quality Council of India to realize this goal. Under this flagship program incentives are provided to MSMEs to get ZED certified. ZED certification is based on the ZED Maturity Assessment Model. Training and education programs are provided to assist MSMEs in adopting the system . However, the government needs to push the program more. While majority of the stakeholders have heard the term Zero Defect, Zero Effect, few are aware of the ZED initiative behind the slogan. Detailed evaluation and audit concerning the effectiveness of the program should be carried out.
These than are a brief look at quality principles and how it can be applied to the management of the environment in India. Despite the government’s ‘stated commitment to environmental protection’, the ground reality is very different. According to data compiled by IQAir AirVisual's 2019 World Air Quality Report India accounts for twenty one of the world's 30 most polluted cities in the world with six cities in the top ten most polluted in the world. Greenhouse gas emissions, with the burning of fossil fuel a key driver of the climate crisis, is also a major cause of dirty air. India has just recently announced its goal to be energy self sufficient and increase its reliance on coal. Under the Make in India program, the government has ‘diluted environmental and labor laws’ to attract domestic and foreign investors. Social and ecological considerations have been placed on the back burner . With all these contradictory policies and goals and lack of clear environmental stewardship, sustainable development and green growth will remain a major challenge for India in the years to come.

Disadvantage of Too Much Technology
By : Sourav Mondal
While I do think that technological advancements have made our lives much easier compared to the hardships faced by our previous generations, I wondered out loud if there is such a thing as “too much technology”.
India has made rapid strides in the technological field.Technology has made our life more easygoing and comfortable than ever before.But these comforts bestowed on us through technological advancements is doing us more harm than good. In 21st century, technology has evolved to accommodate a more convenient lifestyle and meet every need that could possibly need fulfilling. Our entire lifestyle has slowly but surely been completely taken over by technology.This is having an adverse effect on our well-being.
Modern technology has given us everything we want,whenever we want and more than we actually need ,with the result that wehave become a week society.Unlike the older generation,modern-day children do not have the space and freedom of moving about and end up cramped in front of their computers and video games. We live in the world of iPhones, laptops, fitbits, Facebook, Amazon, Uber, Netflix, tons of food delivery apps, etc. Most students today spend long hours staring at their mobile phones either hooked to social media or some other app.
Through technology has greatly contributed to human development,it has it’s flipside and it is adversely affecting our health. Here’s an attempt to highlight the effects of “too much technology” on students by making a pros and cons list.
How 5G technology is critical to India's digital dream
By Sourav Mondal
What is 5G?
It is the next generation cellular technology that will provide faster and more reliable communication with ultra low latency. A government panel report points out that with 5G, the peak network data speeds are expected to be in the range of 2-20 Gigabit per second (Gbps). This is in contrast to 4G link speeds in averaging 6-7 Megabit per second (Mbps) in India as compared to 25 Mbps in advanced countries, it added.
Who does it benefit?
With 5G technology, consumers will be able to download data heavy content such as 8K movies and games with better graphics in just a few seconds. But once 5G becomes commercial, users will be required to change their current devices in favour of 5G-enabled ones.
What will be the economic impact?
5G is expected to create a cumulative economic impact of $1 trillion in India by 2035, according to a report by a government-appointed panel. According to a separate report by telecom gear maker Ericsson, 5G-enabled digitalisation revenue potential in India will be above $27 billion by 2026. Additionally, global telecom industry GSMA has forecast that India will have about 70 million 5G connections by 2025.
5G deployment will require overcoming several technological and operational challenges, the biggest one being extensive fiberisation. Most operators are at about 20-25% fiberisation. However, a truly 5G experience will require upwards of 80% fiberisation. The antennae will also need to be upgraded at every site while requiring virtualisation of the core and the access with an entirely new orchestration layer to achieve the critical feature of 5G network slicing.
What about spectrum auction?
The government plans to undertake spectrum auction in the current calendar year. In a first step towards preparing for these auctions, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) had in August last year recommended that entire available spectrum be put to auction in the forthcoming sale. As a result a total of 8,644 MHz of spectrum will be put on sale, making it the largest ever such auction. The total base price of the total airwaves on sale is about ₹4.9 lakh crore.
Apart from creating a positive environment for 5G’s launch in India, the biggest issue GoI needs to resolve is to help telcos overcome the prevailing financial crisis.
The spectrum policy should focus on incentivising heavy investment in 5G, including support for long-term, exclusive, technology-neutral spectrum licences, instead of trying to look for financial windfall right away.
The shift from 4G to 5G is not incremental in nature, but transformational. Given what it means for the entire ecosystem, skipping it is not a choice India can afford.

मुज़ेहना के विभिन्न ग्राम पंचायतों में बने पंचायत भवनों का नही हो रहा इस्तेमाल
मुज़ेहना : गोंडा
सरकार द्वारा ग्राम पंचायतों के विकासपरक गतिविधियों का संचालन अथवा ग्राम वासियों की विभिन्न समस्याओं का निस्तारण गाँव में बने सचिवालय में ही कराये जाने के उद्देश्य से सरकार द्वारा भारी भरकम बजट खर्च कर प्रत्येक ग्राम पंचायत में पंचायत भवनों का निर्माण कराया गया था जिसमे नियमित रूप से ग्राम प्रधान सिकरेटरी लेखपाल अथवा सम्बंधित अधिकारियों की उपस्थित बैठक मीटिंग किया जाना सुनिश्चित किया गया था ! लेकिन मुज़ेहना ब्लॉक के 57 ग्राम पंचायतों में शायद ही कोई ऐसा सचिवालय हो जिसका निर्माण के बाद से संचालन किया गया हो, यही नही तमाम पंचायत भवन तो अब ढहने जाने की पोजीशन ले चुके हैं चौकाने वाली बात तो भी है की निर्माण के बाद लम्बे अरसे से उपयोग में न होने के बाद की कई बार काया कल्प के लिए ग्राम पंचायतों को बजट भी आंवटित किये जा चुके हैं।
किन्तु धरातल पर उन सभी पंचायतों भवनों में बड़ी बड़ी घास और झाड़ियाँ उगी हुयी हैं।
खिड़की दरवाजे सब टूट चुके हैं
परिसर में बने शौचालय की स्थिति देख कर गलत है जैसे बनने के बाद किसी ने उसका उद्घाटन भी नही किया हो, ऐसी हालत किसी एक पंचायत भवन की नही बल्कि सभी ग्राम पंचायतों की है ग्राम पंचायत बछईपुर और बनगाई में तो पंचायत भवनों का लगभग जीवन समाप्त होने को है !
मतवरिया में नहर किनारे तलहटी में पंचायत भवन की एक तरफ की दीवाल ढह गयी है दरवाजे खिड़कियों का पता नही लगे भी थे अथवा नही, बेसहूपुर का तो कारनामा ही पुरुस्कृत किये जाने के योग्य है कई बार कायाकल्प और इंटरलाकिंग कराये जाने के बाद भी न तो उसकी सूरत बदली और न ही आने जाने के लिए कोई रास्ता ही बनवाया जा सका, ग्राम पंचायत दुर्जनपुर ने तो सभी को मात दे दी वहां के पूर्व ग्राम प्रधान रही कमला देवी ने पंचायत भवन का पूरा पैसा ही डकार लिया करीब 14 लाख से केवल पंचायत भवन की नीव ही भरी जा सकी,अब उनके बाद चुनी गयीं ग्राम प्रधान प्रभावती का भी कार्यकाल खत्म होने को है लेकिन न तो पंचायत भवन बना और न उनसे धन रिकबरी की कार्यवाही की जा सकी है।
अब इन सबके बावजूद अधिकारी प्रतिदिन जांच और कार्यवाही के लिए दौड़ लगाते तो हैं मगर उनके दौड़भाग का परिणाम क्या होता है ये लक्ष्मी पति भगवान विष्णु ही जाने, खैर जो भी है एक बात तो अस्पष्ट है की गाँवों के विकास की जिम्मेदारी उठाने वाले तथा निगरानी के लिए तैनात सरकारी नुमाइंदों के तालमेल की वजह से न तो सरकार की मंशा पूरी हो रही और ना ही गावों का विकास हो पा रहा है।

¡Ay Dios mío! Rajon Rondo y el tablero asisten a LeBron James para tremendo donqueo - El Fildeo
El base armador de Los Ángeles Lakers, Rajon Rondo, asistió con el tablero a Lebron James, para que terminara la jugada con un donqueo ante los Houston Rockets en los Playoffs de la NBA.
El base armador de Los Ángeles Lakers, Rajon Rondo, se lució con tremenda asistencia con el tablero para que Lebron James terminara la jugada con un donqueo ante los Houston Rockets en los Playoffs de la NBA. En el final del cuarto periodo, los Lakers comandaron un contraataque y Rajon Rondo prefirió asistir con el tablero a Lebron James para el donqueo, que sumar dos puntos en su cuenta personal en este cuarto juego de la serie ante Rockets en los Playoffs de la NBA. Acá el vídeo: Rondo-Bron lob to close out Game 4 pic.twitter.com/diKdoym8V2 — Bleacher Report (@BleacherReport) September 11, 2020 Rajon Rondo demostró seguridad en esa jugada y Lebron James dejó claro sus recursos en la NBA para finalizar un donqueo al mejor estilo de los Playoffs, siendo una jugada verdaderamente de lujo que seguro terminó de desmoralizar a los Rockets. Se detalla en en la jugada que la pelota incluso queda un poco atrás luego del pase de Rondo, pero el Lebron James supe resolver de la mejor manera para conseguir un donqueo más en la temporada actual del baloncesto de la NBA. Lebron James tenía claro lo que quería hacer, que era el donqueo y no le importó que quien venía en la marca era Russell Westbrook, pero bueno, “El Rey” ha dejado bastante opacado en estos Playoffs al base de los Rockets. Los Lakers derrotaron 110-111 a los Rockets y se pusieron a un juego de clasificar a las semifinales de la Conferencia del Oeste en la NBA y Lebron James, finalizó 16 puntos, 15 rebotes y nueve asistencias. Mientras que, Rajon Rondo, con 11 unidades, 10 rebotes y ocho asistencias, siendo esa con el tablero para el donqueo de James la mejor de la noche.
MLB: Acuña dice que con Soto y Tatis Jr., no hay competencia por MVP - ALBAT
Acuña, Tatis Jr. y Soto son las caras latinas de MLB
Desde hace algunos años, una nueva generación de peloteros latinoamericanos ha tomado por asalto a MLB, quiénes desde el primer momento han mostrado su valía en el mejor beisbol del mundo. Liderados por el venezolano Ronald Acuña de los Bravos de Atlanta y los dominicanos Juan Soto y Fernando Tatis Jr. de los Nacionales de Washington y Padres de San Diego respectivamente, los tres están peleando codo con codo por ser el MVP de la Nacional éste 2020. Acuña se entrevistó con Yancen Pujols en Instagram Live, donde el periodista dominicano le preguntó sobre su relación con Soto y Tatis Jr., y sobre hay una competencia entre ellos por el posible MVP que pudieran ganar: Yo lo tengo en el WhatsApp (a Tatis Jr.) y todos los días siempre nos mantenemos en contacto, y me dice 'mi hermano, háblame del segundo año, que dicen que es el más difícil' y le digo 'mi hermano, usted es bueno, usted va a batear'. Nosotros hablamos mucho, también con Soto. Nosotros tenemos eso, de que si yo estoy en las malas, yo se que ellos me van a apoyar, y cuándo estén en las malas, ellos saben que yo los voy a apoyar. Entre nosotros tres nunca ha existido esa competencia. Entre hermanos no hay competencia. Sin duda demuestra la gran camada y la enorme mentalidad de los peloteros latinos más destacados de todo Grandes Ligas.
