Is this actually good reading comments that plastic will go into the air as nano particles and harm us ?
Micro plastic is now every where from soil , water to food to our body as well as body of animals . We are just pretending it's not there . If you take plastic to landfill it ll pollute ground water , if you throw it on water it ll pollute there , if you incinerate it then air ll be polluted. Plastic binds strongly with bituminous, so we can expect leaching ll be low . I dnt know much in this subject .

I cannot emphasis enough how much the people participation part is important.
In Indore the municipality folks 1st convinced people to segregate their waste and hand it over to the correct collection people.
Here in Bangalore there is a good amount garbage collection .. but the wet/dry segregation is a mess.
One day a collection vehicle will come and refuse to take not segregated waste .. on the 2nd day some other vehicle will come and take your segregated waste and in front of you dump them both together.
In Indore efforts were taken to win peoples trust that the effort that they make to segregate is useful. If not they will not make the effort.
Bangalore is a big city and the situation is different in different areas.
Area A
I remember when this door to door collection 1st started (after there was a crisis where villagers blocked entry to the landfill and garbage kept piling up across the city ). The municipality cleared a lot of garbage piles and beautified them. Garbage dumping after was prevented by the people themselves ..(saw some intense abuses being hurled at violators), these areas are clean to this day.
Area B
Garbage collectors do not go to all houses .. Collection is irregular. Garbage pile gets cleared occasionally with bulldozer and trees are planted. Yet the garbage pile reappears everyday.

Indore model indeed should be observed by all municipalities .. Cooperation between govt and people is essential. And Indore actually makes money from garbage as pvt companies will happily process segregated waste.

I am sorry if i ask too much, can we ever compete with US in defence, think about worst situation when US wants to attack India, is we able to defend ourselves ? down the line in next 30-40 years this might situation arrive. Are we thinking in this line also ?
Only to prevent that is to get ICBMs in sufficient quantity and have a robust ABM system with global satellite survelliance 24/7 standby and a tracking & targeting system in the IOR where we can guide our long range version of the Brahmos. And we will need a way to overcome their stealth bombers and fighters by coming up with a radar that can detect their presence despite their stealth nature.

I have been to Indore this year. I was surprised by the cleanliness of this city. Also Indore' public infrastructure is really good as well. Efficiency of Indore municipality can definitely shame some tire 1 municipalities.

"Andaman is similar to South-North Sumatra/ North - Mergui, KG is similar to the Gulf of Mexico, Saurashtra is and Kutch similar to East African rift. 2.36 Mn sq. km offshore area across over 9 offshore basins; with 55 per cent area already appraised via seismic or drilling," he said.

“We have 26 sedimentary basins and have streamlined processes to further drive sector attractiveness by giving freedom to carve out blocks, play based exploration, pre-cleared blocks and opportunity to partner with existing players," he said.

Train 18 hit by cattle again 🐄 🥴
Front part of train 18 is made of fibre glass or wood so breaks easily normal train are full metal thus don't get damaged this much. Full train tracks need boundary wall so this don't keep happening

Only solution is to fine or jail farmers who let their cattle roam the tracks, if IR doesnt want to fence the track

It got repaired overnight and was back on trials next day. That's the true reason of using fiber glass work instead of Bull guard in front like other train engines of IR.

I was thinking whether it was possible to achieve 180 kmph speed of rrts on regular 5'6 broad gauge.
RRTS is good but it uses smaller gauge and we are ending up using three different gauge throughout the country. A RRTS arrangement on regular gauge would do wonders for our railway.

I am talking about fully ripping out the old tracks and use Concrete ballast base on busy routes.

This will serve two purpose 1)Facilitate high speed passenger trains 2)Facilitate Express train on the same track.
