I am a graduate Civil Engineer, working in Valuation Cell of Income Tax Department, Indore As Junior Engineer.

I am really concerned about the abrupt sound level change which happens during a commercial break in almost every TV channel, it affects ears of children as wel as adults. Should the TV channels not be regularised to maintain equal sound level?

I am a Civil Engineering graduate from BE College and involved in project construction since last 29 years. Presently working at Muscat, Sultanate of Oman under Simplex Infrastructures Limited.

I am concerned at the way the underground water drawn for ploughing and other purposes is resulting in contaminated water remaining for drinking, specially in rural India.

Dear Sir or Madam, I'm involved with the Oxford branch of Engineers Without Borders UK, and we're looking to carry out a project in India this summer. The idea would be to partner with a suitable local NGO or CBO and do a field-based feasibility study and technical assessment for improving water quality in a rural community. The longer term plan is to then do some design work in Oxford based on the field work results, and then go back next year to implement the design in collaboration with the local NGO/CBO as well as the community itself. However, the immediate outcome of the field work would be a customised report on what actions could be taken by the NGO as well as the community to improve things themselves. I was wondering if CSE had suggestions as to potential local partners we could work with on this? Please contact and I can give more details about the goal of the proposed project as well as send a more detailed proposal.

Adulteration of Petrol/Diesel- CHECK THE PRIORITY
 
In my opinion more important is the adulteration in Milk, Ghee, all types of cooking oils, carcigenic colours in sweets, prasad (Every Tuesday please see the yellow prasad being sold & consumed), vegetables etc. etc. I think all our imaginations will fail if you prepare the list, where some or the other form of adulteration is not done. We should form a association of like minded people who are willing to spread this dangerous awareness in the masses. I am ready to volunteer as far as possible.

This is Mr. Eliah Gowri, working with a Christian NGO by name Full Gospel Churches of India working to uplift the weaker sections of the society in Krishna District, of Andhra Pradesh. We have been involved in environmental activities such as conservation and regeneration of Mangrove forests, and promotion of composting and vermicomposting and awareness building on environmental protection and climate change education. The messages from e-mail newsletter, and articles are very thought provoking and are very useful and very educative. We have been using them in our awareness meetings on environment and protection of earth.

Reducing adulteration of diesel by kerosene is half job done, before we consider reducing number of vehicles running on Diesel fuel. Every motorist need to be made aware of what quality of motor fuel he/she is getting. Testing of fuel at fuel station by customer is a must,for which capacity building through education/awareness programmes is essential process.

Just think a little every big city i.e Kolhapur to Mumbai has evolved only on the bank of water as water is life and if we don't care for it why should the water? Anciently it was said river GANGA was the symbol of purity I too believe it because thousand of years ago the river water was was so pure and the impurity within our body was of negligence so the water could cure it like anything but during the course of time thousands of metric tonn impurities are added every year but still it holds its name to be called as water isnt it a miracle in itself? please save the rivers

I am an engineering student, in the 3rd year of my degree, I want to do something about this climate change, what can we do at our level, we cannot sit blindly like our government, and this whole world. I know there will be many like me, we want to do something but do not know from where to start.

You have not mentioned your stream of engineering. Nevertheless, students may apply to work as volunteer or intern with CSE to get hands on experience on research related to environmental issues. Apart from that, at an individual level you may make effort to spread awareness about importance of saving natural resources and practice the same. Practice how to minimize the emission of greenhouse gases.

Subject: 'Fiber optic sensor for determining Fuel Adulteration detection using longer period Fibre grating Sensor technology' - Request to commercialise the programme. we are interested in the project 'Fiber optic sensor or any other technically viable and cost-effective method for determining adulteration of petrol and diesel by kerosene; which programme will eliminate pollution. This is quite interesting to us, as central and state Governments are keen to eliminate adulteration of diesel, happening today on large scale, by detecting the presence of kerosene in unmarked condition (Marker not added in the first place), and of marked kerosene (Marker added deliberately with Kerosene by the Oil marketing companies so as to be detected by contact or non-contact methods or by any visual or field tests, including in-line methods) as adulterant in the motor fuel.
I believe that your Organisation has done some good work on the above programme and supported the cause. As rightly believed, Government institutions these days fund such programmes to commercialise and later become beneficial to the society, as the scheme comes under social responsibility, as society benefits by way of savings due to reduced engine wear, and by eliminating unwanted tail-pipe emissions, due to such adulteration.
We, therefore, request you to kindly ensure that this programme becomes commercially useful to us as a valuable proposition, and to let us know your interest for taking it forward. We request you to kindly advise your experts on the subject to consider ground realities and the latest trends in the market before finalising the portable model for mounting in an under portion of underground tank to detect in-situ the presence and extent of either Kerosene (naked) or kerosene with marker(added with blue dye marker or any standard Markers), as the case may be in the field. We also need electronics and communication link using GPRS/ GSM Mode of communication, so that it can communicate to the field middleware / central server from time to time, as per the field requirements. Please contact us for further details, if necessary. Sudhakar Reddy. K CEO, OM Electronics.

Hi! I have read what you are doing through the schools in the cities. I would like to introduce some kind of awareness on the way we can contribute in some way among the community we work with and also with the staff. Please share with us such ideas. Thanks

In combine rain water harvesting, single rain water harvesting unit is connect to a channel. This channel is a plastic or metal pipe, which has inputs from number of single rain water harvesting unit. This channel supplies the rain water to harvesting well or tank. It has benefits, saving individual cost and management of rain water and harvesting purpose.

I'm a management student currently in my 2nd semester. I did my graduation from science bio. I am very much interested to work for the environmental problems after I complete my pg rather than work for the corporate sector. About my competency I can only say that management study is enabling me to manage various kinds of problems & managing the funds in the most possible way. But I lack the proper guidance about how to start on & where can I apply for the same if I can get some guidance on the same from you then I'll be obliged to you.

To get an idea about what it means to be working in the environmental field, you may start with being a volunteer at CSE. The details of volunteering are given in our website. http://cseindia.org/work_with_cse . In case you enjoy your experience as a volunteer you may then think of it as a career. Volunteers who perform well have a chance of being absorbed as an employee as well.
