A Comment on increasing trend of gold imports by India which is not good for our economy

My comment on an article "Gold imports likely to touch 1000 tonne this year, up 11%" published in the Dated 22/12/2015 at 11 pm.

"This is horrible. So much of gold imports means so much of funds outgoing from our country. 

If 1 kg. of gold is supposed to worth Rs.25 lacs, then imagine how much of money is going out. Hundreds of billions. What a horrible picture. 

There should be some measures to curb this. Running behind gold for all occasions should be restrained by people and use the money instead to invest in better options of income generating investments."

''It is a good thing to discuss all the circumstances that contribute to the safety and protection of disabled people.

Buildings should be constructed in such a manner that they cater to the minutest needs of disabled person. All facilities should accommodate to their needs without risking their life.

A comment on Paris climate talks and draft agreement

Your comment on the article ''Five things you need to know about the Paris climate change draft agreement'' is now displayed on Dated 13/12/2015 at 1:15 pm.

''The climate deal is only to limit further temperature rises to well below 2C.

It means the temperature levels already there will remain as they are and only further rises will be monitored for control.

Even for this agreement, it is reported that a last minute telephonic call by Obama to Xi Jinping made it possible to reach at this agreement of bringing down further rises.''

A Comment on Chennai rains and floods

My Comment on an article "Chennai rains: City turns island; road, rail, airlinks disrupted" published in the Dated 02/12/2015 at 10:45 pm. 

"Too much frightening atmosphere in Chennai. Rains have created a scary situation disturbing the lives of people. 

This kind of worst situation has never been witnessed since many decades in Chennai. It has become an island completely cut off from approach by even rescue providers. 

It has been more than one week since the Tamilians Diwali festival (Karthika pournami day) it is continuing like this. Added to that the devastating severe floods caused by the release of waters from canals and reservoirs due to incessant heavy rain on 01/12/2015 flooding the city completely.

Very sorry situation for the people of Chennai city and other neighbourhood places. May God help them in their distress. All those helping them either through social media or personally need to be appreciated and blessed with good wishes."

A Comment on Google spreadsheet and good samaritans helping Chennai flood victims

My Comment on an article "Chennai floods: Google spreadsheet comes to city's rescue" published in the Dated 02/12/2015 at 10:30 pm. 

"Very nice efforts are being done by these techies and good samaritans of Chennai in providing help to the flood victims. 

The rains are too severe this time flooding many places and rendering people homeless. Especially the continuous downpour on Tuesday and release of waters from all barrages has severed the conditions even more. Many localities have been flooded. Relief measures provided are not sufficient to meet their immediate requirements. 

So, the online crowd sourcing information and help offered would be of much help to those helpless victims in finding some refuge."
