Well-to-do people tell us to dress well, eat well and enjoy well. They way to live and the way to behave are being taught to us by them. But unfortunately such people are not many in the country. The world they live in is very different from the one many others live. The disparity between these people and the common people is very much. The gap is not closing up by any means. The attitude and general behavior of the well-to-dos are highly sophisticated. They look for quality life. They spend lot of money to achieve such quality. They follow a particular style to suit their convenience. In general, they do not respect the poor. They invariably expect that the poor to do service to them. I know some of these kind of people who least care for others. Most of them are good, but highly selfish. Kindness, generosity, and politeness are the characters we rarely find in some of these people. Everything they do will be significantly different from others do. Thus they stand aloof, creating a world of their own. A welfare state should have well-to-do people, but a country like India cannot have such a luxury because of the billions plus people of all kinds – below poverty, above poverty and mid-level poverty population – can not be homogenized to bring a welfare state. However, the democratic policy of each country is trying its best to bring some kind of uniformity and economic stability creating facilities to train and employ the ever enhancing population number. Health care, education, skill development, food security, infrastructure facilities and opportunities for employment are some of the welfare measures to the grass root level are very slow. Moreover, reaching these measures to the voiceless lot who live in remote regions of the country is one of the difficult tasks. The officials responsible to implement such measures are mostly corrupt. The harassment they cause to the illiterate and poor people are countless. Under such conditions who will be able to establish a welfare state in this world? I do not know. What about you? Do you have a solution? However, day by day people are getting benefited one way or other. Opportunities are plenty. Only thing is the initiative one has to take for making use of these golden opportunities instead of crying always that the government is not doing enough to the people. Slow and steady win the race! We can’t live like the people in America. But we can certainly live comfortably in our own country like most of the well-to-do people.

Bioremediation is an ecologically sound natural process where natural strains of bacteria breakdown organic wastes most effectively. Bioremediation is one of the most promising new technologies for treating industrial wastes (solid and liquid), municipal / urban wastes (sewages), mining wastes (including effluents containing heavy metals etc.), chemical spills and hazardous wastes, etc. This list is nearly all embracing indeed. It can be used as an in situ remediation technology with indigenous micro-organisms or can be used in an ex situ mode in either composite piles or bioreactors. By altering the types of microorganisms present, nutrients and climatic conditions (pH, moisture, temperature, and oxygen levels), microbial degradation can be enhanced. In situ bioremediation can be implemented in many treatment modes – including aerobic (oxygen respiration), anoxic (nitrate respiration) and anaerobic (non-oxygen respiration) and co-metabolic. The aerobic mode has proved to be the most effective mode in reducing contaminant levels of aliphatic and aromatic petroleum hydrocarbons from gasoline (petrol) and diesel fuels.


Probably the most debilitating emotion that humans must confront is that of fear. Fear confuses. Fear paralyzes. Fear prevents you from thinking clearly, accessing your spiritual gifts and being who you truly are. Fear is the anticipation of future pain. It's been said that 90% of humans are motivated to avoid pain, while only 10% seek pleasure. It's no surprise that we suffer from fear. We've been trained to fear from an early age. Don't play in traffic - fear of getting run over. Don't talk to strangers - fear of being abducted. Don't misbehave or Mommy won't love you - fear of abandonment. As we grow older, we learn new fears: Fear of not being loved. Fear of being rejected. Fear of not having enough. Fear of being unworthy or inadequate. Fear of making a mistake. Fear of being restricted. Fear of getting fired. Fear of being annihilated by nuclear-armed terrorists. Every day, we are bombarded with new fear-based messages by advertisers, politicians and the media. It's easy to understand why: Fearful people are easy to control.
Fear is one of humanity's most primitive emotions, triggering the adrenaline rush associated with the fight or flight response to danger. In life-threatening situations, this is helpful, better preparing you to do battle or to escape. But in non-lethal situations, fear clouds judgment and encourages you to REACT - rather than carefully consider alternatives - thus ensuring a less than optimal response to your problem. Even worse, attachment to fear inhibits your ability to tap into your innermost self. Connecting with your inner master requires you to be balanced and your brain hemispheres be in synch. Fear causes your brain to automatically return to its dominant side - logical or emotional - again, ensuring unbalanced input into solving your problem.
Fear is a low vibration, dense emotion. Clinging to this negative, energy-draining emotion guarantees you will be unable to transcend to higher states of consciousness, characterized by higher vibration emotions such as love, joy, peace and happiness. You can't take your baggage to the higher worlds, so eliminating fear is critical. All people, even warriors, have some degree of fear. What separates warriors from timid souls is not their inability to recognize danger. What makes some people warriors is their willingness to act in the face of fear. By repeated experience, warriors come to know that fear dissolves with conscious action. - Edwin Harkness Spina


All of our feelings beliefs and knowledge are based on our internal thoughts, both conscious and subconscious. We are in control, whether we know it or not. We can be positive or negative enthusiastic or dull, active or passive. The biggest difference between people is their attitudes. For some learning is enjoyable and exciting. For others, learning is drudgery. For many learning is just okay, something required on the road to a job.

Our present attitudes are habits built from the feedback of parents, friends, society and self that forms our self-image and our world-image. These attitudes are maintained by the inner conversation we constantly have with ourselves, both consciously and subconsciously. The first step in changing our attitudes is to change our inner conversations by commitment, control and challenge.

Make a positive commitment to yourself, to learning, work, family, friends, nature and other worthwhile causes. Praise yourself and others. Dream of success. Be enthusiastic.

Keep your mind focused on important things. Set goals and priorities for what you think and do. Visualize practicing your actions. Develop a strategy for dealing with problems. Learn to relax. Enjoy successes. Be honest with yourself.

Be courageous. Change and improve each day. Do your best and don’t look back. See learning and change as opportunities. Try new thing. Consider several options. Meet new people. Ask lots of questions. Keep track of your mental and physical health. Be optimistic.

Studies show that people with these characteristics are winners in good times and survivors in hard times.

Eva Peron was utterly incensed when she returned from a trip to Europe.

She let out her troubles to a friendly retired admiral.

“Do you believe it? The crowds in the street called me a whore!"

"Don't worry Eva, I have the same problem.

I haven't been on a ship for ten years and people still call me Admiral."
