My sons' school Chettinad Harishree Vidyalayam is asking its 1080 students to open an account in a local private bank - City Union Bank just to pay the fees.  We each have to open an account in the bank and then transfer money from that account to the school for fees.  When I ask why, this is the response I got:
Dear Parent,

With regard to your email below, the online fee payment facility is requested by most of the parents from last 2 to 3 years. We are insisting on opening a bank account with CUB is ONLY because we need the details of payment with Name, Class, Ad.No, Fee breakup and Term breakup of the fee collected. When we transfer fee from the personal account, it will be a total amount with some description like child name or class and also it is not mandatory during fund transfer. So the school will lack in getting details of collection. And when some problem arise during online payment, it will be a easy task to handle with a single bank branch.

Keeping all the above things in mind, the management has decided to proceed with the said process.

FYI, the account opened will be a NIL account with no charges involved for transfer of funds.

Warm Regards
.....

The author would like to here our stories too!  I wrote and heard back...
We despise them – yet we imbue them with our hopes and dreams, our dearest memories, our deepest meanings. They unlock much more than our accounts.

Piezoelectricity is the property of certain materials that acquire an electric charge when they are mechanically deformed. This charge generates a voltage. in other words, a piezoelectric converts mechanical energy into electricity.

As in most physical effects, the converse is also true, if a voltage is applied to the piezo, it is deformed.

Piezo electric materials are used as spark generators, stress sensors, actuators and motors among other uses.

This video shows a homemade piezo generator used to light a led, storing the energy in a capacitor.

Excellent food! We have been there thrice and the only thing we disliked was the pasta basilica. The Ratatouille is awesome, tomato soup with the brad is great. The service is getting better, but they are not good at peak hours. The first time we were there, peak hour, the glasses smelled and the spoons were greasy. Better glass and spoons in the next 2 visits. Very crowded place, better to book a table in advance.

Worst Possible Service! One idiot sitting there has no clue what is to be done for getting a simcard change, but will insist on Photocopy of ID, Passport photo airtel is supposed to need just ID proof which they photocopy in the store.
