MANSI PRAKASH IS A 20-YEAR-OLD ECONOMICS MAJOR FROM THE NEW YORK UNIVERSITY. IN 2010, WHILE VISITING HER GRANDPARENTS IN INDIA, SHE SAW MANY VILLAGERS GOING WITHOUT LIGHTS AT NIGHT TO SAVE MONEY.............. 

THEIR INCANDESCENT BULBS BURNED OUT QUICKLY, AND LED TO HIGHER BILLS, WHICH THEY COULD AFFORD. SHE IMMEDIATELY DECIDED TO BUY ENERGY EFFICIENT BULBS FOR TEN FAMILIES USING HER OWN MONEY..........................

“MOST FAMILIES HAVE LIGHT BULBS – THEY JUST WEREN'T TURNING THEM ON AND USING THEM,” PRAKASH TOLD TAKE PART. “FOR SOMEONE WHO COULDN'T AFFORD FOOD THREE TIMES A DAY, PAYING THE HIGH ELECTRICITY BILLS WAS NOT AN OPTION.”

SHE KNEW THAT IF 60-WATT BULBS, WHICH WORKED FOR TWO MONTHS, WERE REPLACED WITH 11-WATT FLUORESCENT LAMP BULBS, WHICH LASTED THREE TO FOUR YEARS, WILL PROVE BENEFICIAL IN THE LONG RUN. WHILE INITIAL COSTS WERE HIGHER, IN THE END, THE SWAP WOULD REDUCE HOUSEHOLD ELECTRIC BILL PAYMENTS BY 80 PERCENT. “THE FAMILY SAVINGS COULD EASILY GO TOWARD EDUCATION OR HEALTH CARE”, SAYS MANSI......................

SHE HAS SINCE FOUNDED THE NONPROFIT BRIGHTER TODAY, AND WITH HELP FROM THE CLINTON FOUNDATION, HAS BEEN DISTRIBUTING ENERGY-EFFICIENT BULBS THAT ARE DONATED BY ELECTRONICS GIANT PHILIPS............

SHE ALSO WON A $20,0000 GRAND PRIZE FROM GLAMOR MAGAZINE TO FUND HER PROJECT. THEY HAVE BEEN ABLE TO BRING COST-EFFECTIVE, ECO-FRIENDLY, LONG-LASTING LIGHTING TO 5,300 RESIDENTS OF THE BEHLANA VILLAGE NEAR CHANDIGARH FOR THE FIRST TIME................
 
SHE IS ALSO PLANNING A SOLAR PANEL PROTOTYPE TO BRING LIGHT TO HOMES WITHOUT ELECTRICITY. “I OFTEN THINK ABOUT A GIRL I MET WHILE INSTALLING BULBS,” SHE TOLD THE GLAMOR MAGAZINE. “SHE LONGED TO GO TO SCHOOL, BUT HER PARENTS COULDN'T AFFORD IT. ONCE THEY STARTED SAVING ON THEIR ENERGY BILL, THEY COULD. SHE IS WHY I DO THIS. IT’S HER LIFE I WANT TO CHANGE.”..........................

Emerging Economy

Emerging Economy by definition remains sub-merged. If US/West economies go down, it affects currency exchange and stock market of emerging economy. If US/West economies improve and their stock markets go up, emerging economy face flight of investors and economy faulters.

London in 1927, in colour!
The opening shots of this incredible scene were eerily familiar to me. The building on the extreme left is on Tower Bridge Road in Bermondsey where, 50 years after this film was shot in 1977 I opened my first bank account. 
An amazing record of the city 86 years ago. Check the hats, so many hats.

Kai Po Che : A movie sponsored by Congress against Modi/BJP

Do doubt Modi took no step in curbing the riots just like Congress led govt in Maharashtra failed to do same in early 90’s. However the movie showed in detail stabbing and burning by one section of religious clowns but skipped scenes of burning of trains full of helpless people by another group of religious clowns.

On lighter side- ‘baniya’ shown in movie resembles Lalit Modi in ending scene promoting IPL :)

RIP Shakuntala Devi....

“Why do children dread mathematics?”, she was once asked.

“Because of the wrong approach. Because it is looked at as a subject,” pat came her reply.

“Mathematics is life, you have maths in everything, right from time to your date of birth to the food you eat and the air you breathe”
