Making Delhi #SuperPower

We all know that Delhi government is on the mission to make Delhi fist smart city in next three years. They have already made a big master plan to highlight Delhi as the city which will make pollution free and more environments friendly. They aim to transform Delhi with their finest infrastructure including well maintained and operational sanitation and public transportation facilities. Government has already set up various administrative and technical bodies who have taken the role to identify the zonal area and do the proper survey to identify the issues and opportunities in those area in order to improve the conditions and facilities which will be required and type of approach to be taken under Delhi Mission Master Plan. It is infact Government is really serious to implement all the projects following the global best solutions and transparency with the projects for the successful and fruitful solution to their completion of all the plans to make it as smart city. A panel is being set to identify illicit lodging areas and for their acquisition. There are efforts likely to connect road, rail and other forms of transportation linked together for effective public transport solution.

We all love to visit to foreign destination and admire them gracefully and it is important that we also talk about our own Delhi and its condition. We need to support every effort linked to make this city safe and clean. This is need of hour to reduce the pollution whether air or noise. We need to make sure that cleanliness, sanitation becomes priority around the area surrounding our home. We need to identify solid and liquid waste and must ensure to throw them at right place. There is need to educate students and every citizen about reducing the menace of pollution. Car pooling is one thing which we can take to stop driving our vehicles and installing solar powered devices can help in curbing such problem.

The situation in Delhi has improved over the years but still not up to the global standard marks. Government should try to beautify the surroundings and promote ads in encouraging use of renewable source of energy. I am happy that this is first time government and Supreme Court has passed the order to ban the use of crackers and also selling them taking into consideration air pollution and health problems. Vodafone which is private company has also supported this cause and has provided Super Crackers with plant seeds in their store for next three days. Green diwali is the way for future diwali celebrations from now on and each parent should encourage their children to stop buying crackers and instead plant trees in their nearby surroundings. Air pollution can also be prevented in the way that if we use Metro and CNG vehicles. We can switch off the lights and prevent water flowing when not required as their already scarcity of water in Delhi and water level is going really low day by day. All these efforts will definitely help in contribution to make Delhi better living place and smart city.

Security is another major concern for me and it is important that action is taken to keep city safe for children and women. Being digital is one such step taken by government to keep us connected in such situation. Vodafone has also provided the service for free internet in Delhi and NCR areas by creating wifi zones. There are more than 120 hotspots being set up to avail internet and use it for free irrespective of whether you are Vodafone customer or not. Vodafone has also brought innovative air purifying bus shelter in the city for Delhi people so that they can be protected from air pollution while waiting for the bus at the bus stop.

All such efforts will help in giving a boost to make Delhi smart city in coming days. You should also read more about Vodafone Delhi initiative to make it smart city.

 

Recycle-Re-USE-Gadgets

One of the most common stories of every household is the old stock piling of electronic gadgets which is lying in the home. It is just there to occupy your room space and has not much advantage. The reason for all this is technology up-gradation at a rapid rate and better features which are customer oriented being launched everyday in the market. Few weeks ago I bought a laptop and now it feels less updated due to new product configuration with innovative features already in the marketplace. If you go to your friend place or any one room then you are sure to find old smart phone, computer etc and other such electronic gadget biting the dust.

Obsolete technology makes the old gadgets junk of matter and there is no solution to this big problem as the parts cannot be sold or repaired and even if they do then it can cost a hole in your pocket which is not a good option. This leads to people interested in getting new devices instead of getting the repairing done of their old ones. I can give example when my phone smart screen broke then the mobile phone seller told me cost to replace the screen too much and it was not worth repairing it thought it was a minor crack in the screen. The common problem is that old processor is either not available or out of stock as company has moved to new technology. I hope this problem of disposing old device is solved in a better way.

I want to tell about selling my old Samsung phone which was gifted to me by my husband on my birthday few years back when having a mobile phone was a privilege to have and people would stare at you and be amazed about it. I was excited to use that phone for two years before the phone become quite slow and had given me storage and battery problems. I decided to sell that phone but found none of people from my close social circle were really interested in buying it as everyone wanted to buy the newer model. Then I tried to visit the local phone shops but they wanted to buy at throw away prices and so I decided to keep it with me until find the new buyer. One of my friends told me to sell it through social networking site and I posted about it on face book. But that was my big mistake and it lead to numerous spam calls and messages and ultimately deleted the ad. It was horrible experience and I decided never to put such ad on social site with my phone number ever. At last after searching the whole world for selling my smart phone I found the buyer at my home itself. She was none other than my home maid who poked me to give her old smart phone so that she can get to talk to her family which lived in village. I was happy to give her phone for which I just charged her nominal amount after looking at her financial condition and her needs.

It is quite cool to pass out your old gadgets to people in need so that they can learn from it and use it. My maid can now operate the smart phone on her own and even has made a social account with it.
