Ahh... Summer...

Rain rain come again : these four words seem to be on every one's lips nowadays... It had rained a couple of days back but has not brought any respite... The wretched inland temperate zone weather.. No wonder the heat has claimed more than 40 lives... Air Conditioners are modes of temporary relief : the moment you step out, you are hit by the heat - not less, but more intense... And what about the millions of people who are not privileged enough to own an A.C... The heat is not going to decrease with the complaining... The key word here is Global Warming.... (for extensive reading on Global Warming, refer to Wikipedia ...)

A small effort on every one's part can converge into a behemothic effort by the entire world... Small things like switching off the lights, switching off the engine at signals, closing taps, etc. etc. is all that it takes... I remember being the only one, not only in my hostel,  but also in the entire locality to observe The Earth Hour -  which involved an hour of minimum or no current usage... Such audacity will not lead us anywhere but to our graves...

Written in public interest after a hot, sleepless night with low voltage!

I agree... Every week will be good... It went well in the metros... not where i live... people were not even aware of it, or if they were, they refused to acknowledge it...
