Is your workplace adding to Global Warming?

Let us start with a simple fact. The Earth is running around Sun at a speed of 30 kilometers per second. But, we sitting in the office, feel we are static sitting at one place. Yes, we are static but with respect to the earth. In a way, we are already out on adventure trip, in the universe, sitting and walking on earth. Is it not a spacecraft that we are riding on? Then, we have Sun which is a candle without wax, a bub without electricity and has been giving us light and warmth to survive. We are living in amazing world.

At one time, we are standing on the earth but may be hanging on earth just 12 hours later when the earth rotates on its axis. We do not realize it in our daily life. Think about it.

True, all this has been existing for times immemorial. But, what has happened to it now? Is it sustainable? Why is the temperature continuously increasing now? Why are the natural calamities increasing regularly? Suddenly, what has started going wrong?

We need to do something about it. What can we do about it other than going out on streets as an activist? What can we do from our tiny house or office while working daily chore?

Idea is simple. Use the same formula - Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. Build on this idea in every part of life. To give an example Reduce the use of plastic at home.

And, at office -
  • Reduce the unproductive work, heavy on electricity devices at office. 
  • Reuse water bottles at office instead of using paper cups. 
  • Recycle paper envelopes, old equipment through exchange offers, sell them to others who can still use them.
There can be many more ways that I could not yet thought of. What is it that you can reduce, reuse or recycle at office? Please suggest through your comments.

The Damar Tantra | Shivambu Kalpa (Urine Therapy)

Mahavatar Babaji Temple in Chennai

Locals call it "Siddhar Babaji Temple", "Siddhar Babaji Ashram" and also "Rajini Ashram" as it is frequently visited by Superstar Rajinikanth. So, ask with these names for guidance from local people.

I was a bit confused about the exact location of the temple whether it is in Malaipattu or Padapai. Then, I got to know that it was near Manimangalam. So, I headed towards Manimangalam.

To reach Babaji temple from Chennai, you have to reach Maimangalam. I was staying in a hotel in Kilpauk, Chennai. I took a cab from there and asked him to take me to Manimangalam. There, I inquired about Malaipattu. Malaipattu is 4km from Manimangalam. Going from Malaipattu bus stop towards the Babaji Temple, there is Kalyana Srinivasa Perumal Temple, it has a big image of Sri Anjaneyar. You may prostrate before Anjaneyar and then proceed further.

You will reach the calm and vibrating abode of Babaji at Malaipattu/Padappai. Note: Carry enough eatables, fluid, fruits with you …

educoin - the digital currency of learning

Imagine having a wallet, call it eduwallet, on a public ledger where your learning is recorded in multiples of 'one hour learning record' called edublock. The ledger is powered by blockchain, same technology that powers bitcoin. Then, what would be the equivalent of bitcoin in the education space? Let us call it educoin – a collection of karma i.e. individual learning experiences, where every learning-experience is a karma.

The public ledger with edublocks will enable everyone to receive credit from anyone. Similar to bitcoin, this will be beyond the boundaries of institutions, schools and universities. So, the formal learning institutions will, sooner or later, embrace the technology and will need to adapt to the new emerging models. All learning will become recordable and measurable in the public domain.

Educoin will radically decentralize education and make it more transparent and learner centric. As we see with bitcoin, there is no central authority, no goverment, no ban…
