Construction at Singur site raises waterlogging fears

Construction at Singur site raises waterlogging fears



SINGUR/KOLKATA: Land filling work at the Singur site of the Tata Motors small car project has sparked fears of flooding in villages of the area.

The villagers gave a representation to the district administration saying that the land filling and construction of the boundary wall will tell upon the natural sewer system and flood the surroundings in case of a downpour.

Hooghly CPM leader Balai Sabui also called on state commerce and industries minister Nirupam Sen to apprise him about the possibility.

Sabui said it would be difficult to flush out water from the surrounding villages during the rains unless the government takes up excavation of the adjoining Ghiya-Kunti river basin from Mogra to Singur.

The district irrigation officials, however, did a preliminary survey of the Julkia riverbed before overhauling the drainage network. The WBIDC has recruited a private-security agency to supervise nightguards on duty.

The link between Mind and Social / Environmental-Issues.

The fast-paced, consumerist lifestyle of Industrial Society is causing exponential rise in psychological problems besides destroying the environment. All issues are interlinked. Our Minds cannot be peaceful when attention-spans are down to nanoseconds, microseconds and milliseconds. Our Minds cannot be peaceful if we destroy Nature.

Industrial Society Destroys Mind and Environment.

Subject : In a fast society slow emotions become extinct.
Subject : A thinking mind cannot feel.
Subject : Scientific/ Industrial/ Financial thinking destroys the planet.
Subject : Environment can never be saved as long as cities exist.


Emotion is what we experience during gaps in our thinking.

If there are no gaps there is no emotion.

Today people are thinking all the time and are mistaking thought (words/ language) for emotion.


When society switches-over from physical work (agriculture) to mental work (scientific/ industrial/ financial/ fast visuals/ fast words ) the speed of thinking keeps on accelerating and the gaps between thinking go on decreasing.

There comes a time when there are almost no gaps.

People become incapable of experiencing/ tolerating gaps.

Emotion ends.

Man becomes machine.



A society that speeds up mentally experiences every mental slowing-down as Depression / Anxiety.

A ( travelling )society that speeds up physically experiences every physical slowing-down as Depression / Anxiety.

A society that entertains itself daily experiences every non-entertaining moment as Depression / Anxiety.



FAST VISUALS /WORDS MAKE SLOW EMOTIONS EXTINCT.

SCIENTIFIC /INDUSTRIAL /FINANCIAL THINKING DESTROYS EMOTIONAL CIRCUITS.

A FAST (LARGE) SOCIETY CANNOT FEEL PAIN / REMORSE / EMPATHY.

A FAST (LARGE) SOCIETY WILL ALWAYS BE CRUEL TO ANIMALS/ TREES/ AIR/ WATER/ LAND AND TO ITSELF.
