Jalsanchay Yojana: How failure can be a success 4.6.2018 DNA: Money
It is heartening to see that we have a proactive government responding to the water crisis looming ahead through direct action. The Jalsanchay Yojana of Gujarat government is aimed at water conservation through deepening of waterways and waterbodies with a simple and plausible assumption that deepening will result in increased water retention. Unfortunately, while intentions are good, there is a possible devil lurking in the detail, and to understand this, we need to look at how earth deals with water. Apart from a few continuously rocky areas, most of the landmass of Earth is either porous or fractured. So, rainwater falling on land that doesn't travel down a water-course enters deep into the ground and interacts with the underground geology of earth forming what is known as an aquifer. Aquifers are like underground rivers or waterbodies where a huge amount of fresh water of earth is stored.

It is the technology used in mobile game Pokemon Go, and by industry, such as factories seeking to map new assembly lines. Apple and rival Google are racing to release AR tools to attract software developers to their platforms. Both are seeking to allow two people to share data so they can see the same virtual object in the same space via their individual devices. But that has sparked privacy concerns - if AR apps become commonplace, people will be scanning their homes and other personal spaces routinely, developers say. Apple designed its two-player system to work phone-to-phone in part because of those privacy concerns, one of the people familiar with the matter said. The ...
