Marathalli: Emission of smoke from any vehicle is prohibited by the government. Often we find people on road-side being fined by traffic police for their vehicles emitting smoke. But what about government vehicles? Buses and SUVs, especially private Buses and newly launched Volvo buses in Bangalore throw out smoke like cigars. This way of polluting the air leads to numerous diseases and infections. Acute bronchitis is the major one that many suffer due to such pollution.

LAYOUT TALK Rain Water Harvesting Dasappa layout in Ramurthinagar has many houses. But most of the houses are vacant. Tenants vacate the house in a few months. House owners find it difficult to get tenants. Reason: Lack of water in the wells and no Cauvery connection. This situation may come to any place and is not restricted to one area alone. Of what use are beautiful houses if there is no water to live in? As intelligent species of earth, what are we doing to protect harmony in nature and respect it. Only 2.5% of total water on earth is fresh water. About 1.97% of the earth's fresh water is frozen polar and glacial ice. And about 20% of fresh water supply comes from ground water. The amount of ground water on earth is 50 times that of surface fresh water. If water usage is greater than recharge rate then a stage is reached where water is obtained from mining which is also called fossil water. At this stage water becomes a nonrenewable resource. Water in Bangalore was easily available at 200 feet many years back but today it is difficult to get even at 800 feet today. Experts warn that we have reached the stage of fossil water, which if not replenished very soon. We may reach a stage that we cannot replenish water even if we wish to. Emptying water tables allow the temperature to rise on earth and it does not replenish water below it. Ice in the polar regions are bound to melt and with no other place to occupy, water would submerge the precious land we so much value. But is there a solution? Yes there is. Yet man seldom cares to implement a ny t h i n g . T h i s o n l y s h o w s h o w shortsighted man is and so one day nature is going to make human race short lived and the days are not far. Rain water harvesting is a technique of collecting, storing and preserving rain water for utilization at a later stage. Government has now made it mandatory in Bangalore to adopt rain water harvesting, and has said that water connection will not be provided to houses more than 30'x 40' and 60'x 40' without the rain water harvesting technology. Let us all remember that fresh potable water is very precious and every time we drink water we owe it back to mother earth. The technology is available with the Karnataka State Science and Technology council, IISc. Bangalore-12. Contact person: A.R.Shivakumar. Phone:080 23341652. Residents who have adopted the technique already are welcome to share their experiences with the readers of Layout Times and enlighten them.

Congress on Winning Note

a Neurotherapy in AECS Layout

India: Continuing its success in the 2009 Lok Sabha elections, the Congress retained its power for a third term in a row and secured a landslide win in Arunachal Pradesh. However, it six short of an absolute majority in Haryana. The Congress-Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) alliance is all set to form the next government in Maharashtra.

Nuclear Arms – Pakistan's Pride, Taliban's Envy India: The situation in Pakistan is a worrying factor for India. Pakistan encountered six major attacks in the last fortnight by suspected Taliban militants. Pakistan is believed to have between 30 and 40 nuclear warheads, according to the U.N. nuclear watchdog, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). Those warheads, however, are not in the areas under the control of the Taliban. India's defence minister AK Antony said "We will protect all our territory and at the same time, we will continue our effort for extending relations with all our neighbours." After the assassination of former Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto in December 2007, top Pakistani security officials held a special briefing with Western journalists, insisting that the country's nuclear arsenal is secure from Islamic extremists. One has to seriously consider U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's warning that Pakistan was in danger of falling into terrorist hands. Pakistan is producing more new bombgrade uranium and, once a series of new reactors is completed, bomb-grade plutonium for a new generation of weapons. President Obama has called for a treaty that would stop all nations from producing more fissile material but so far has said nothing in public about Pakistan's activities. Our hopes are positive when Lt. Gen. Khalid Kidwai -head of the army division that controls Pakistan's nuclear sites and weapons – says Pakistan's weapons were protected by a "fool-proof" security system. However, no one has been able to ascertain the validity of Pakistan's assurances about their nuclear weapons security.

MIND WORKS – 4 Self-talk or Internal Dialogue By Prof UK Athikkal -----Have we ever observed the nature of selftalk we make within our mind. Do these dialogues within help to boost our confidence level and make us feel better or the other way. Given below are some examples of positive or empowering self-talk:- “Life is great and I play a positive part in it.” “People enjoy my company.” “I am good at what I do.” “I feel good about myself.” These kinds of thoughts within are helpful to enhance confidence and competence of individuals in all walks of life. Repeated thoughts which are powerful and positive help us to excel in our performance and efficiency.

Outcome oriented thinking Whenever we think on any important issue, do we focus on the hurdles and obstacles to be encountered? Mostly our answer to this question is “yes', and justify the answer as it is a process oriented thinking. What happens if we shift the focus to the outcome or the final goal one is aiming to achieve? It is definitely going to energize the process oriented activities. Seeing the final destination or the outcome of the process motivates us through the journey. The habit of procrastination is a common phenomenon. Generally we tend to postpone the tasks which are less interesting or boring. On such occasions it is beneficial to imagine the scenario of the completed task and the satisfaction one derives from it. Suppose you intend to re-arrange your study and take up cleaning and this task is getting postponed indefinitely. You feel less enthusiastic to take up the task because your thoughts are focused only on the discomforts you may face during the process of taking up the activity rather than on the satisfaction and comfort one tends to derive on completion of the task. So, the point here is whether you are focusing on the situation when you achieve the goal or the discomforts you are required to face when you are performing the task. Shift your focus so that the process becomes interesting and passionate.

Now consider our communication process. What is the style of our communication? Is it oriented towards the goal you desire to achieve? Are you adapting a blaming style with judgemental comments? Or are you always adopting a problem solving approach of encouraging team members to learn quickly from every failure or weakness and go forward with renewed spirit and excitement?

One Great Hope for a Peaceful and Free World India: On October 24, 1945, the United Nations (UN) came into existence when the five permanent members of the security council, France, the Republic of China, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom and the United States ratified the charter. The UN has the wisdom to understand that nations could do far more to advance their interests by acting together than by letting themselves be split apart. The original 51 member nations were united around a commitment to peace, humanity, and justice. Today, with 192 member states, the United Nations is the principle forum for all nations, large and small, to work in concert to meet the global challenges no nation can confront alone. The U.N. is vital to America's efforts to create a better, safer world. Through peacekeeping missions that have saved so many lives and averted so many wars; lifesaving humanitarian work; critical development activities; and its unique legitimacy, the U.N. can function as a forum that brings all nations together.

Lee, the NSW's Time to Capitalise Man in the T20 on Our Base Final It is well known that Indian scriptures and Sanskrit literature are a storehouse of knowledge. Today there is a worldwide interest in Indian thoughts leading to considerable research in well-known universities across the world. Yoga, meditation and holistic methods enunciated in our scriptures are recognized globally as sure remedies of happy and healthy living. Vedas, Upanishads, Brahmasutra, Gita, Puranas, Ramayana and Mahabharatha are considered holy texts containing information on all aspects of human activity – physical and spiritual. There are a galaxy of Sanskrit luminaries – Kalidasa, Panini, Bhasa, Bana, Varahamihra, Bhartruhari and many others whose works have inspired and enlightened generations of humankind over centuries. Works of Charaka, Sushrutha, Aryabhatta, Bhaskaracharya, Lilavati and others deal with different aspects of science and medicine. Ramayana and Mahabharatha have innumerable illustrations of science, technology, arts, sports, music, dance, architecture, weaponry, defense, vehicles, textiles, navigation, metallurgy and space craft to name a few. By observing ancient temples, paintings and historical structures, one wonders about the technology prevalent several hundred years ago. For example, the rusting iron pillar near Kutub Minar unravels
