consultant rainwater harvesting NS & Associates Maharashtra In Chandigarh for a session hosted by the Confederation of Indian Industry northern region and Indian Green Building Council (IGBC) on Water & Smart Cities: Responding to the Urban Challenge on the World Water Day on Tuesday Saraiya expressed his concern over the wastage of water in Punjab “There is a misconception of having ample water in north India Water resources are getting scarce and one has to be aware of these changes across India” said Saraiya Saraiya who through NS & Associates has been providing sustainable and eco-friendly solutions to increasing water shortage in India is a strong votary of recharging the water levels “Concrete pavers are only stopping the water from percolating into the ground Porous pavers over time develop silting problems whereby restricting any water to percolate Ponds no longer exist in that many numbers so the solution is surface recharge and using tubewells to absorb that water in time” said Saraiya With smart being the buzzword these days Saraiya said smart cities also mean aware and water-energy efficient cities “Hence incentivised programmes should be there to award tax benefits to those who employ rainwater harvesting techniques in their buidings” said Saraiya The focus he added should be a uniform policy on recharging water levels using localised technology and that too according to the hydo-geological structure of the place “Not all terrains are same and hence rainwater harvesting projects differ” said Saraiya Co-chairman IGBC Chandigarh Ar Jit Kumar Gupta agreed with Saraiya “By applying the same harvesting technique builders often lament that instead of water their money is percolated One has to be patient and adopt techniques as per the geological terrain and demand” said Gupta adding how the demand for clean water will exceed the supply by 2030 and hence with the Prime Minister’s vision of 100 smart cities smart management of water is critical Dr Satnam Singh additional director (environment) Punjab State Council for Science & Technology stressed the importance of water and its sustainable usage for the future generations keeping in mind the growing pressure on land and available percentage of portable water “Around 20 per cent of the jobs in the world are either directly or indirectly based on water and one fifth of the economy in India is water-based The planet is composed of 70 per cent water which makes the earth a blue planet Water imparts value to livelihood and is vital to the ‘Blue Economy’” added Singh Comprising the audience engineers architects and builders also expressed concerns over bureaucracy of securing permissions and running high costs of rainwater harvesting Another option that interested them was that of phytorid technology for sewage treatment whereby plants are used to clean water Basant Yadav consultant Petrichor Emerging Technologies (India) Pvt Ltd gave a presentation on the same The speakers asserted that the need of the hour is to adopt an integrated approach from local civic bodies to higher up in the hierarchy and to efficiently exploit water for optimal use “Rainwater harvesting and forest conservation are a few examples However water conservation starts from us the consumers We need to be cautious judicious and aware too” said Gupta For all the latest Chandigarh News download

long-range missile marking a dramatic escalation of the regime’s stand-off with the United States and its allies The test drew swift international condemnation including from US President Donald Trump who described North Korea as a “rogue nation” and said its actions “continue to be very hostile and dangerous to the United States” Trump also appeared to rebuke ally South Korea which faces an existential threat from North Korea’s nuclear program “South Korea is finding as I have told them that their talk of appeasement with North Korea will not work they only understand one thing” Trump said in an early morning tweet The White House said Trump would convene a meeting of his advisers later on Sunday Chinese president Xi Jinping and Russian president Vladimir Putin who met on the sidelines of a BRICS summit in China agree to “appropriately deal” with the North Korean nuclear test the Xinhua news agency reported Hours before the test Trump had talked by phone with Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe about the “escalating” nuclear crisis in the region The US president has previously vowed to stop North Korea developing nuclear weapons and said he would unleash “fire and fury” on the regime if it threatened US territory The hourglass-shaped device North Korea claims to have launched Reuters Last week Trump said the time for talking was over although he was later contradicted by his defence secretary James Mattis who said the United States had not exhausted all diplomatic options Trump’s tweet on Sunday however again suggested that he favours a non-diplomatic solution The big question now is whether advisers like Mattis and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson can persuade him not to be too hasty in ruling out diplomacy North Korea which carries out its nuclear and missile programmes in defiance of United Nations Security Council resolutions and sanctions said on state television that the hydrogen bomb test ordered by leader Kim Jong-Un had been a “perfect success” The bomb was designed to be mounted on its newly developed intercontinental ballistic missile (ICBM) the North said The test had registered with international seismic agencies as a man-made earthquake near a test site in the North Japanese and South Korean officials said it was around 10 times more powerful than the tremor picked up after North Korea’s last nuclear test in 2016 There was no independent confirmation that the detonation was a hydrogen bomb rather than a less powerful atomic device but Japan’s chief cabinet secretary Yoshihide Suga said Tokyo could not rule out such a possibility Experts who studied the impact of the earthquake caused by the explosion —measured by the US Geological Survey at magnitude 63 —said that there was enough strong evidence to suggest the reclusive state has either developed a hydrogen bomb or was getting very close The head of the UN’s nuclear watchdog IAEA Director General Yukiya Amano said the nuclear test was “an extremely regrettable act” that was “in complete disregard of the repeated demands of the international community” South Korean President Moon Jae-in said Seoul would push for strong steps to further isolate the North including new UN sanctions Japan also raised the prospect of further sanctions saying curbs on North Korea’s oil trade would be on the table China North Korea’s sole major ally said it strongly condemned the nuclear test and urged Pyongyang to stop its “wrong” actions The United States has repeatedly urged Beijing to do more to rein in its neighbour but Beijing has lambasted the West and its allies in recent weeks for suggesting that it is solely responsible for doing so It has said military drills by South Korea and the United States on the Korean peninsula have done nothing to lessen tensions Thermonuclear device Under third-generation leader Kim North Korea has been pursuing a nuclear device small and light enough to fit on a long-range ballistic missile without affecting its range and making it capable of surviving re-entry North Korea claimed in January 2016to have tested a miniaturised hydrogen bomb also known as a thermonuclear device but outside experts were sceptical suggesting it could have been a “boosted device” an atomic bomb that uses some hydrogen isotopes to increase its explosive yield A US official who studies North Korea’s military and politics said it was too early to determine if the test supported the North’s claim that it had succeeded in developing a thermonuclear weapon “much less one that could be mounted on an ICBM and re-enter Earth’s atmosphere without burning up” The test comes amid heightened regional tension following Pyongyang’s two tests of ICBMs in July that potentially could fly about 10000 km (6200 miles) putting many parts of the US mainland within range One expert said the size of Sunday’s detonation meant it was possible it could be a hydrogen bomb test “The power is 10 or 20 times or even more than previous ones” said Kune Y Suh a nuclear engineering professor at Seoul National University “That scale is to the level where anyone can say (it was) a hydrogen bomb test” Air raid sirens When the test took place people in the Chinese city of Yanji on the border with North Korea said they felt a tremor that lasted roughly 10 seconds followed by an aftershock “I was eating brunch just over the border here in Yanji when we felt the whole building shake” said Michael Spavor director of the Paektu Cultural Exchange which promotes business and cultural ties with North Korea “It lasted for about five seconds The city air raid sirens started going off” Earthquakes triggered by North Korean nuclear tests have gradually increased in magnitude since Pyongyang’s first test in 2006 indicating the isolated country is steadily increasing the destructive power of its nuclear technology The Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Organisation (CTBTO) in Vienna said it had detected an “unusual seismic event” in North Korea that was larger than previous nuclear tests “North Korea’s mission is quite clear when it comes to this latest atomic test: to develop a nuclear arsenal that can strike all of Asia and the US homeland” Harry Kazianis director of defence studies at the conservative Centre for the National Interest in Washington said “This test is just another step towards such a goal None of us should be shocked by Pyongyang’s latest actions” Hourglass-shaped device Hours before the test North Korea’s state news agency KCNA had released pictures showing Kim Jong-Un inspecting a silver-coloured hourglass-shaped warhead during a visit to the country’s nuclear weapons institute accompanied by scientists The shape shows a marked difference from pictures of the ball-shaped device North Korea released in March 2016 and appears to indicate the appearance of a two-stage thermonuclear weapon said Lee Choon-geun senior research fellow at state-run Science and Technology Policy Institute KCNA said North Korea “recently succeeded” in making a more advanced hydrogen bomb “All components of the H-bomb were homemade and all the processes. were put on the Juche basis thus enabling the country to produce powerful nuclear weapons as many as it wants” KCNA quoted Kim as saying Juche is North Korea’s homegrown ideology of self-reliance that is a mix of Marxism and extreme nationalism preached by state founder Kim Il-Sung the current leader’s grandfather It says its weapons programmes are needed to counter US aggression Impoverished North Korea and the rich democratic South are technically still at war because their 1950-53 conflict ended in a truce not a peace treaty The North regularly threatens to destroy the South and its main ally the United States Written by
