Let’s Reduce our Footprint
Billions of tiny actions that can make a major change…
Earth Day is THE day in the year, when one should take time to reflect on one’s capacity at reversing adverse effects of one’s liability on our planet’s health. It may seem presumptuous to many, to imagine that an individual act will count in a broader picture. But more and more each day, we are getting to better understand how simple human habits like eating, travelling or buying, to say the least, add up to a global bill that weakens the Earth in its capacity at harbouring more than 6 billion human beings.

Indians are not Stupid…
Just three years ago, grid-connected solar power in the country was less than 12 MW. By the end of 2011, India had acquired 190 MW in solar power generation capacity. By March 2013, that figure will grow five-fold to 1,000 MW under the Solar Mission targets alone… (source Business Today)
