Draft electricity plan paints rosy picture of power scenario 27.1.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
The Electricity Act, 2003 mandates that every five years, the Central Electricity Authority (CEA) should prepare a National Electricity Plan (NEP). Last December, the CEA released draft of third NEP for 2017-2022 seeking comments from stakeholders. Some conclusions of NEP like close to zero energy demand deficit would be music to power starved India while raising questions about its authenticity. Brownouts and blackouts are every day events all over India. Though 98% of villages are electrified today, 35% of households do not have access to electricity. But draft NEP shows that we have surplus power. Not only it gives a rosy picture of current power scenario, it gives even a rosier picture for the next 10 years with continuing surplus power. The most outstanding recommendation of the draft NEP is that India need not construct any new coal power plant once under-construction plants are complete. Peak load deficit which used to be above 9% before 2013 has come down to around 3.2% and is likely to disappear ...

Craft an innovative education policy 21.10.2016 Deccan Herald - Opinion
Mahatma Gandhi's concern about the way education is defined and pursued - that it is only to enable the student to earn more and hardly giving any thought to the improvement of the character - remains a central focus of all global reformist agendas. Pressures of bludgeoning population, technological revolution, globalisation and an increasing demand for access to quality education have forced the Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs) to redefine their conventional goals. Reputed journal Nature (special issue, The University Experiment, December 2015) identifies the emerging demand for a transformation from education for knowledge mode to education for employment mode as the game changer. Given this global trend, the National Education Policy (NEP) 2016 has to craft an innovative policy with employability and personality development components strategically positioned around a core matrix of knowledge-related activities. The success of NEP depends on two fundamental issues: First, empowerment of both ...

Giant comets may threaten Earth 26.12.2015 Asian Age: Newsmaker
The discovery of hundreds of giant comets in the outer planetary system over the last two decades means that these objects pose a much gre-ater hazard to life on Earth than asteroids, scientists say. The giant comets, termed centaurs, move on unstable orbits crossing the paths of the massive outer planets Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Nep-tune. The planetary gravitational fields can occasionally deflect these obje-cts in towards Earth, according to a team of astronomers from Arma-gh Observatory and the University of Bucking-ham in UK. Centaurs are typically 50 to 100 kilometres across, or larger, and a single such body contains more mass than the entire population of Earth-crossing asteroids found to date. Calculations of the rate at which centaurs enter the inner Solar System indicate that one will be deflected onto a path crossing Earth’s orbit about once every 40,000 to 100,000 years, researchers said. Whilst in near-Earth space they are expected to disintegrate into dust and larger fragments, flooding ...
