Try Roof Top Gardening

Today most of the people living in big metropolitan cities are basically from a rural background. Many of them will have a penchant for flora. But often they don't have any ground space available to grow their favorite plants. Today just a thousand square feet of land is enough to construct a small hosue with the walls also serving as the fence. A better alternative for those gardening enthusiasts is roof top gardening. Roof top gardening is not a new concept. The hanging gardens of Babylon are the best example. Hotels and restaurants have traditionally made use of this concept effectively. There rooftop gardens acts as ecological oasis in the midst of concrete desert and help enhance the quality of air, reduce pollution and dust, insulate from heat and cold, harvest rain water for plant use and conserve ground space. More than everything they add to the aesthetic value of our household. Certain precautions are necessary before embarking on roof top gardening. The roof must be strong enough to support the garden structure and also leak proof. Roof top gardening is restricted to plants with shallow and fibrous roots because deep rooted plants may damage the building.

Indian Bank Employees need counselling

Last month when I went to a reputed government bank here in T.Nagar, Chennai to take a DD for my friend I didn't get a kind response from an official there. When I inquired about the procedure to take a DD that boorish bank employee replied with frustration "Nee padichavan thaaneya?" (Aren't you a literate?"). I was shocked. I just passed out of my college and to be honest I'm not proficient with the banking system. Feeling dejected I thought of approaching another bank but my friend needed the DD urgently and so I somehow managed to complete the procedure with some help from the visitors. I left the place mulling over the fact whether it is my mistake or the official's fault. Is it the job of the bank to educate its customers or else the customers have to educate themselves? I'm sure that many of you would have experienced a similar situation with banks in our country. I wonder why would people like us often get insulted at places like banks, hospitals, ration shops, public buses and many more offices. We expect service from these people but receive only misery. There is no room for human values and no respect for a co-human in this country. I would be happy if at least one person understands what I'm trying to say...

Time to move on to the Ka-band

The radio spectrum is one of the scarcest resources available today. The demand for bandwidth is increasing everyday and now India has decided to open the new Ka-band for communication. This will vastly improve the speed and quality of direct-to-home services, internet and other wireless applications. The Ka-band covers frequencies in the range 27-40 GHz according to IEEE classification. The new band will enable rapid downloading and it will help the reception of TV channels on mobile phones.

The bands presently in use are the VHF, UHF, S, C, and Ku bands. C-band (4-8 GHz) is used for cable television distributed from those large dish antennas installed at the service provider's area. Ku-band (12-18 GHz) is used for DTH services. But these bands are nearing saturation. If not for the multiplexing strategy these bands would have exhausted decades ago. Now the Ka-band will certainly have a major impact in our life. If this band gets depleted then we have to move to the millimeter wave band but that is not an issue today.
