Government of India should, as a special case waive off the penal implications for domestic reinvestment of that black money which at present may be stashed in Swiss Banks, for investment in top of the line projects like the Freight ccorridor, as well as the river linking project, which in times to come would enable India not only to measure up to its BRICS rival China, but also to surpass it!.
As long as the Indian government can afford to research and build nuclear weapons, they can never claim to not have enough money for more important things. I remember taking my pocket money to school as a child for donations to reduce starvation in India, I would hope that starvation was more important than bombs
Yes, you are absolutely right - the guys on the ground who do the actual collection of data have to slog while those who analyse it are doing it in air-conditioned labs. The whole problem that I see here is that there is no one agency that is reponsible for data collection and if there is a govt or private agency, it is reluctant to share this data because it feels it has done the hard work ( like you say, got its hands tired and dirty) and prefers to wait or should I say hoard the data for no apparent reason.
It is certainly a lot more fun, and much cleaner work, to play around with high performance computers. One can do that and never even get their hands dirty. But linking rivers is hard and dirty work and those who would be doing the actual work are certainly not those who play with computers all day. Besides all of that, if you have seen the photo posted with the caption: "And THIS is the country that we call for tech support?" It shows an absolute rat-nest of wires hung on utility poles with no organization or planning evident at all.
So what it gets down to is that none of those brilliant computer people are in any way going to be doing any river linking projects. It does not work that way.
Fascinating tale of contradictions. But India isn't alone. The United States spends trillions and trillions on spying on their citizens but we don't want to build a comprehensive voting system!! Noone is an island but part of the universe ... I guess.
Am sure there are several innovations that come up pertaining to social changes but somewhere along the line, the government and its related agencies should be more pro-active and help them expand. There is this other company called Selco which had also come up with solar lanterns - making a big difference to a number of rural households in India.
Premier Farnell recently launched a tech project that leads to social change. Our engineers developed a solar lantern for a remote village in Tanzania to replace their traditional kerosine lamps. The solar lanterns are more cost effective, more reliable and better for the environment. More details can be found here http://ow.ly/nKvmK
We are glad to tell you after over one year research, Nine eagles finally released their amazing 3D helicopter Solo Pro 180D (318A), which is even smaller and lighter than Gaui EP200.It comes with flybarless system, 3 axis gyro, brushless motor and tail drive. Try it and you will be impressed by what this little machine can handle.
Making a flybarless CP Helicopter is not easy, it involves a lot of high technology, for example the Flybarless Rotor head requires a very sensitive 3-Axis Gyro, the micro servos and micro brushless motor...now the Nine Eagles has done it again, The solo pro 180 is a palm size Collective Pitch Flybarless Helicopter. suitable for intermediate to expert players,able to perform real 3D aerobatics. Thanks to the Flybarless Collective Pitch Rotor Head, it changes blade pitch according to your throttle input, so it's very agile for outdoor flying. which no other Fixed pitch heli can compare.
The on broad 3-Axis Gyro performs very well, since the it is a flybarless rotor head (with no flybar,heli will very unstable), the 3-Axis Gyro compensates the heli drifting problem, and stable the heli like it has a Flybar, it work like a charm! Besides, the high power Bruthless Motor, gives the heli high RPM on the rotor head, this also helps to stabilize the helicopter in mid air. And one best features is that the Solo Pro 180 uses a lot of ABC plastic, like the landing skid, the rotor head and the main blades...this gives the heli extra durability, so you have one thing less worry about repairing. We recommend the Solo Pro 180 for those who have experience in Single Rotor Heli, when you have zero crash on those single rotor helis, you should be no problem playing the Solo Pro 180.
