Are you joking ? or serious ?

Why there is a power shortage in TN and why TANGEDCO is under severe financial trouble ?

Because as per the old agreements, TN Govt / TANGEDCO have to give power 24X7 to most of those industries at a cost which was agreed (much less).

So domestic sector & SME Sector suffer.

Please go for a tour of Auto companies in Oragadam, MM Nagar & Thiruvallur areas, IT companies in OMR, GST Road, Ambattur to check for yourself.

Are they getting power from TANGEDCO or they all have Tesla magic coil.?

If you look at the video, most of the bins are over flowing and in many places drainage is running on streets.

didnt watch the video...but the main cause of the mess is Chennaivasis...littering everywhere, posters galore, total disregard to rules and no public sense..and the reason for overflowing drainages is coz of dumping rubbish in the drains by our citizens n potti kadais...

When we take so much care to keep our houses clean, why can't we care even a bit to keep our surroundings n city clean??

We are happy to blame ourself while we protect, support, encourage,Take sides and abeit the politicians and elected officials.

Our first duty is to bring the elected officials to accountability.

Once the elected officials are accountable, naturally they will implemant & enforce the law which make public accountable.

Accountablity is an unknown concept in Tamil Nadu.

We are soaked in Stockholm Syndrome.

what else do we deserve?

One of Goverment's most important job is:

To Legislate, Implement & Enforce law.

If they did that efficiently then no one would dare to dump garbage, Building Debris or drainage on to public road or water ways.

Can I or you punish the offenders? Do we have the authority?
If if we said something, will the offender listen?

Are the elected officials/legislators doing what is required of their job ?


For a change hold them accountable.

The first and right step is:

To urge the elected officials to enforce the law (yes there is law & powers already enshrined and ready for them to use - If they ever decide to use it)

The reason:

Expecting civilians to change the vast population mindset, resolve the issue and taking ownership needs the following:

1. Finacial resources that is not affordable by small group op people.

2. Mobolising & Organising vast network of human resources across the state - Difficult for civil groups to do.

3. Enforcing power & Authority - Entrusted only with Gov.

4. Media Campaign - media organisations will happily tow the line of the goverment of the day rather than some NGO body.

5. Endorsement by Power personality/Star Power - The message will travel & accepted by people when you have
a Jaya or Stalin or Saidai Durai Samy behind it rather than an Exanore volunteer.

Amma Canteen is one example how things can work like magic - If you have a star backing it.
Smoking Ban in public place - Jaya's push.

If the leader at helm pursue one public Agenda every 6 months (Like Amma Canteen) - TN will be a better place.

How Asiad Colony battled diabetes rise by building a park



Quote:
Residents decided they would create an environment that would have the potential to increase physical activity patterns

Walk to be healthy: so we’ve been told. But is there actual evidence to prove walking is an intervention that will lead to positive health outcomes?

Yes, there is. And, in our own backyard, too. The World Health Organisation’s 2005 publication, ‘Preventing chronic diseases, a vital investment,’ showcased how local efforts to create enabling environments for walking had borne positive results for the community. It was showcased also because it was an instance of a community taking ownership, advancing and executing an agenda for the welfare of the community.

Since then, it has come to be called the Asiad Colony experiment. An epidemiological study done in 1998-99 indicated there was a 12.5 per cent prevalence of diabetes among residents of the Tiruvanmiyur colony. “After the study, we built awareness about the need for physical exercise, and urged the residents to do something about it,” says V. Mohan, of Dr. Mohan’s Diabetes Specialities Centre, who conducted the study.

Convinced, the residents decided they would create an environment that would have the potential to increase physical activity patterns. They mobilised resources to build a park in the area. A piece of land was identified and the civic authorities’ permission was sought and received for constructing a park. The park was completed in 2002. The residents contributed a nominal annual fee for the maintenance of the park.

When Dr. Mohan went back for a follow up, he was surprised by the results, he says. There was a threefold increase in people undertaking physical activity (from less than 15 per cent in 1998-99 to 45 per cent in 2006-08) and in the interim, the prevalence of diabetes had increased from 12.4 per cent to 15.4 per cent, as against the more dramatic rise in prevalence — from 6.5 per cent to 15.3 per cent — in a community where no intervention was in place.

Inspired by the Asiad Colony experience, another residential community in Chennai took up the task of building themselves a park.

“The big thing here is how public effort resulted in changing environments to aid the cause of residents. Subsequently, a big movement started to renovate and create more parks in Chennai, an initiative that was spearheaded by the then Corporation commissioner M.P. Vijayakumar. It’s an indication of the power of the community and what it can achieve,” Dr. Mohan says.
