Bio Piracy in India

I read one article in India Today which was on Bio Piracy.

From Last 13 year 25 cases has been filled again Inseact Poaching.
India is among the 12 megadiverse countries as it has significant chunk of the earth species.It has 45,000 plan species and near about 89000 animal species as per article in India Today.
This Bio Diversity attracts many Bio Pirates's eyes.As per wild life protection society of india business of wildlife products is about $10 billion.A single palm-sized specimen of the poisonous Indian tarantula, found only in the Eastern Ghats of Andhra Pradesh, can fetch more than $1,000 (Rs 47,000) in the international market.
There are many other insects like Blue tarantula, Sometime small children are found in forest area selling insects only for 100rs/- for their breadearning.
Tribal youths holding plastic bags and ventilated clear plastic jars.They sell spiders to foreign toursits which can earn them 500 to 5000 Rs/-.Its a good amount for 8 leg creature they sell.
Smugllers or Bio-Pirates come as a foreign touristor or wild life researchers and gather these prospersous insects and sell them in to International Market.So, coping with bio-pirates are not as easy as we can assume.
Society is not still aware yet.We must value the blessing of bio-diversity.
The Wildlife Act and the National Biodiversity Act is not still strict enough to cop with bio pirates or smugllers.

People can get bail in merely a 20000 Rs/- fine.

I would like to request you to come ahead and when ever you found any foriegners or localite showing more interest in buying these Insects, contact Forest officers or any other authorities.

One more Good Incident

Today ,at night when we went to drop a cheque in drop box of nearer ATM.
We found that there were no security guard there.And in this winter A.C. was chilling the ATM room.
Every Indian knows that world is in recession mode.We must have to do cost cutting and save energy every where it can be.
I don't know exact number but I am sure in India there would be more then 500000 ATM.
If we don use A.C.(Air Conditioner) in these ATM or we just minimize the use of AC only in ATM.
I am sure eneregy saved by these ATMs will fullfil demand of atleast whole 1 village.
I am not sure about this equation but Amount of energy saved will surely high.
We should not forget that Great Power comes with great responsibilities.
Educated Peole, Literate People have more responsibilities then iliterate people.
So,lets start to nurture our nation.

Welcome to Era of Digital Photo Frames

Don't be surprised if you see any digital photo frame in Indian home.Digital Frames are now taking place of our traditional wooden/glass photo frames.And gives a technological edge to globalized Indian life style.

Digital Frames have few special features like you can store more then 100s of your special can change them periodically or you can set like slide show .
Digital Frames comes with inbuilt memory (Ranges from 128Mb to 1Gb).
Many digital frames have remote control too ,so you can change photo anytime very conviniently
Price starts from 2500Rs/-(55$) to 25000 Rs/-(550$).

One for surprise is that Taiwan is leading in this Market instead of China. 90% Exports from Taiwan and 10% exports from China. In Western Countries Digital frames become very popular .

For Indian 55$ spending in frame is still not digestible deal.And none of Indian company still come ahead to produce digital frames or shown interest to manufacture it in short future.

So, have to wait for affordable digital frames :)
