Protecting the Borders as well as ecosystems

We all heard of heroic stories of Indian Army who protect our national borders. We are able to take quiet and undisturbed sleep only because of the soldiers that are awake to protect us. But have you heard of Indian army protecting our environment with the same spirit as they protect the national borders? Yes, they do it, so that our children and our Children’s children would be able to sleep quietly. Here is the award winning story! I salute the extraordinary efforts of 128 INF BN (Territorial Army) Eco Rajputana Rifles and congratulate them from bottom of my heart precisely for this reason. I was proud to be on the jury for the award. They recently won the Earth Care Award, institutionalized by Times of India and JSW in New Delhi. The soldiers came to receive the award. They received it with great pride but with military discipline by saluting the Minister of Environment, Forest and Climate Change Dr. Harsha...

Rewarding Experience – Earth Care Awards Of Times Of India and JSW

Rewarding Experience – Earth Care Awards Of Times Of India and JSW

Rewarding Experience of Times of India and JSW Earth Care Awards 2018 What was it like? Being on the jury of Earth Care Awards 2018 was a mesmerizing journey and exploratory experience. Exploration was diving deep in the search of the best of those who are searching innovations and excellence.   The Key take away? The innovative and award winning solutions to the challenge of climate change can take place even in the remotest and the difficult terrains like Ladakh, Kutch  Rajasthan and South West Bangladesh. These inspirational examples demonstrate the power of the communities and potential of the committed individuals that could accelerate the actions to implement the SDGs.   What next? ECA awards’ potential is enormous and not yet fully tapped. The challenge of climate change demands much steeper and accelerated rise in commitment solutions, replication and commercialisation. Asian region, where two-third of rise in fossil fuel use for energy production in next two decades will enhance their carbon emissions more than leading industrialised countries. The deployment of modern technologies like...

Jane Hawking, Wife of Stephen Hawking tells her own “Theory of Everything”

  Jane Hawking, who was divorced from Stephen in 1995 and whose book, Travelling to Infinity: My life with Stephen was adapted by Anthony McCarten to form the core of the movie.Here she talks about her relationship with Stephen Hawking. IT IS 1963, and we’re at a student party in Oxford. A young man approaches a young woman. “I’m a cosmologist,” he says. “What’s that?” “It’s religion for intelligent atheists.” You will have seen him on The Simpsons and Star Trek but you’ve never seen him like this. Stephen Hawking, the world’s most famous living scientist, as a young, able-bodied, ambitious student, chatting someone up. This is the beginning of The Theory of Everything, the story of Hawking’s exceptional life framed by the blossoming – and eventual withering – of romance with his first wife, then Jane Wilde. Straight away we are tipped off to the broad tone that the movie will take on their relationship: one of his godless cosmology, and of her more...

Stephen Hawking: An alien specie. Who Returned home. Obituary

Stephen Hawking: An alien specie. Who Returned home. Obituary

He not only looked and sounded like extra-terrestrial, but was almost like alien species trying to get along with earthy traits. He had no intention to invade or exterminate human life on the Earth as most of the science fictions depict, but probably to live with it and take with him the treasure of knowledge. His objective seemed  to collect as much data as possible by challenging the theories of the  scientists like Albert Einstein and Fred Hoyle. Impatiently challenged great physicists: He started his mission on the Earth, by challenging the Big Bang theory when he was a student. Later he vacillated and contradicted his own propositions about the same.  He propounded and then took back his own theories about shrinking, then expanding, then light-swallowing and finally light-radiating characters of the black-holes which till this date remain an enigma for the astrophysicists. He first proposed and then questioned the singularity of the...

Final TV Appearance of Stephen Hawking: Colonizing Alien World

"Leaving Earth: Or How to Colonize a Planet". Stephen Hawkings in Elon Muskian adventure. In one of his last television appearances, Stephen Hawking poses the question of how people might one day live on planets other than Earth.

In the Smithsonian Channel documentary "Leaving Earth: Or How to Colonize a Planet," Hawking shares his long-held vision of humanity confronting an uncertain future on Earth by looking to the stars and setting a course that will lead us to one day inhabit distant worlds beyond our own solar system. Where we would go, how we would get there and what it would take to make an alien planet habitable are just a few of the questions that Hawking and other scientists...
