Musi Floods Killed 15000 people in Hyderabad,1908!

On Tuesday 28 September 1908 Hyderabad witnessed disastrous floods of the River Musi, flowing through the city. In one day, 17 inches of rainfall was recorded and the water level at Afzalgunj was about 11 feet (3.4 m) high and in some other places it was even higher. These floods shattered the life of the people living in Hyderabad. The modern era of the development of the twin cities began soon after these floods in AD 1908. This necessitated planned development of the city in a phased manner. SYED AZAM HUSSAINI submitted his report on October 1, 1909, with recommendations on preventing a recurrence of floods and also improving civic amenities. Nizam VII constituted a City Improve Trust in 1912. He built a flood control system on the river to prevent the flooding. A dam was built in 1920 across the river, ten miles (16 km) upstream from the city called Osman Sagar. In 1927 another reservoir was built on Esi (tributary of Musi) and named Himayat Sagar. These lakes prevented the flooding of the River Musi and are major drinking water sources for Hyderabad city today.

But who cares…….about their Water Woes………




More than 3.4 million people die each year from water, sanitation, and hygiene-related causes. Nearly all deaths, 99 percent, occur in the developing world.3

Lack of access to clean water and sanitation kills children at a rate equivalent of a jumbo jet crashing every four hours.1

Of the 60 million people added to the world’s towns and cities every year, most move to informal settlements (i.e. slums) with no sanitation facilities.6

780 million people lack access to an improved water source; approximately one in nine people.2

“[The water and sanitation] crisis claims more lives through disease than any war claims through guns.” 7

An American taking a five-minute shower uses more water than the average person in a developing country slum uses for an entire day.7

Over 2.5X more people lack water than live in the United States.2

More people have a mobile phone than a toilet.2,4,5

Discover how clean, safe water restores hope to a community and unlocks the potential of entire villages, so they can change our world.

Real story of American Dollar v/s Indian Rupee (Very Interesting Article MUST SHARE)

An Advice to all who are worrying about fall of Indian Rupee

Throughout the country please stop using cars except for emergency for only seven days (Just 7 days)
Definitely Dollar rate will come down. This is true. The value to dollar is given by petrol only.This is called Derivative Trading. America has stopped valuing its Dollar with Gold 70 years ago.

Americans understood that Petrol is equally valuable as Gold so they made Agreement with all the Middle East countries to sell petrol in Dollars only. That is why Americans print their Dollar as legal tender for debts. This mean if you don’t like their American Dollar and go to their Governor and ask for repayment in form of Gold,as in India they won’t give you Gold.

American Dollar vs Indian Rupee

You observe Indian Rupee, ” I promise to pay the bearer…” is clearly printed along with the signature of Reserve Bank Governor. This mean, if you don’t like Indian Rupee and ask for repayment,Reserve Bank of India will pay you back an equal value of gold.(Actually there may be minor differences in the Transaction dealing rules, but for easy comprehension I am explaining this)

Let us see an example. Indian petroleum minister goes to Middle East country to purchase petrol, the Middle East petrol bunk people will say that liter petrol is one Dollar.
But Indians won’t have dollars. They have Indian Rupees. So what to do now? So That Indian Minister will ask America to give Dollars. American Federal Reserve will take a white paper , print Dollars on it and give it to the Indian Minister. Like this we get dollars , pay it to petrol bunks and buy petrol.

But there is a fraud here. If you change your mind and want to give back the Dollars to America we can’t demand them to pay Gold in return for the Dollars. They will say ” Have we promised to return something back to you? Haven’t you checked the Dollar ? We clearly printed on the Dollar that it is Debt”
So, Americans don’t need any Gold with them to print Dollars. They will print Dollars on white papers as they like.

But what will Americans give to the Middle East countries for selling petrol in Dollars only?

Middle East kings pay rent to America for protecting their kings and heirs. Similarly they are still paying back the Debt to America for constructing Roads and Buildings in their countries. This is the value of American Dollar. That is why Many say some day the Dollar will be destroyed.

At present the problem of India is the result of buying those American Dollars. American white papers are equal to Indian Gold. So if we reduce the consumption of petrol and cars, Dollar will come down

The Above Details are translated originally from Telugu Language to English by Radhika Gr.
Kindly share this and make everyone aware of the facts of American Dollar V/s Indian Rupee.

And here is a small thing other than petrol , what we can do to our Indian Rupee


Please spare a couple of minutes here for the sake of India.
Here’s a small example:-

At 2008 August month 1 US $ = INR Rs 39.40
At 2013 August now 1 $ = INR Rs 62

Do you think US Economy is booming? No, but Indian Economy is Going Down.

Our economy is in your hands.INDIAN economy is in a crisis. Our country like many other ASIAN countries, is undergoing a severe economic crunch. Many INDIAN industries are closing down. The INDIAN economy is in a crisis and if we do not take proper steps to control those, we will be in a critical situation. More than 30,000 crore rupees of foreign exchange are being siphoned out of our country on products such as cosmetics, snacks, tea, beverages, etc. which are grown, produced and consumed here.

A cold drink that costs only 70 / 80 paise to produce, is sold for Rs.9 and a major chunk of profits from these are sent abroad. This is a serious drain on INDIAN economy. We have nothing against Multinational companies, but to protect our own interest we request everybody to use INDIAN products only at least for the next two years. With the rise in petrol prices, if we do not do this, the Rupee will devalue further and we will end up paying much more for the same products in the near future.

What you can do about it?
Buy only products manufactured by WHOLLY INDIAN COMPANIES.Each individual should become a leader for this awareness. This is the only way to save our country from severe economic crisis. You don’t need to give-up your lifestyle. You just need to choose an alternate product.

Daily products which are COLD DRINKS,BATHING SOAP ,TOOTH PASTE,TOOTH BRUSH ,SHAVING CREAM,BLADE, TALCUM POWDER ,MILK POWDER ,SHAMPOO , Food Items etc. all you need to do is buy Indian Goods and Make sure Indian rupee is not crossing outside India.

Every INDIAN product you buy makes a big difference. It saves INDIA. Let us take a firm decision today.

we are not anti-multinational. we are trying to save our nation. every day is a struggle for a real freedom. we achieved our independence after losing many lives.
they died painfully to ensure that we live peacefully. the current trend is very threatening.

multinationals call it globalization of indian economy. for indians like you and me, it is re-colonization of india. the colonist’s left india then. but this time, they will make sure they don’t make any mistakes.

russia, s.korea, mexico – the list is very long!! let us learn from their experience and from our history. let us do the duty of every true indian. finally, it’s obvious that you can’t give up all of the items mentioned above. so give up at least one item for the sake of our country!

We would be sending useless forwards to our friends daily. Instead, please forward this to all your friends to create awareness.

A girl wants her brother to be like RAVANA but not like Lord RAMA!! Why??

Excellent message:

A pregnant mother asked her daughter, “What do u want- a brother or a sister?“
Daughter: Brother
Mother: Like whom?
Daughter: Like RAVAN
Mother: What the hell are you saying? Are you out of your mind?
Daughter: Why not mom? He left all his royalship and
kingdom, all because his sister was disrespected.
Even after picking up his enemy’s wife, he didn’t ever touch her. Why wouldn’t I want to have a brother like him?
What would I do with a brother like Ram who left his pregnant wife after listening to a “dhobi” though his wife always stood by his side like a shadow?
After giving “Agni Pareeksha” and suffering 14 years of exile, how can you live with the blot of having lived with “another man”.
Mom, you being a wife & sister to someone, until when will you keep on asking for a “RAM” as your son???
Mother was in tears…
P.S: Share and like if you agree with daughter decision

Dhyan Chand “The Forgotten Hero”

But Who is Dhyan Chand & Why People asking to give him Bharatratna…?

Before Independence When INDIA went on a Tour,
INDIA Won 3 Olympic Gold medals in Hockey. In Olympic Games We Played 48 Games and Wins all of them.!

INDIA was Unbeatable in Hockey for 20 years.
We defeated America in all the matches and since than America banned Hockey for the Next Few Years.
Can you imagine what an achievement it was.!

Shree Dhyan Chand was among those Who made Hitler his Fan and He requested to accept Germany Citizenship and play for Germany & in return he will get as much as Money and a he will be head of his Army.!
but He refused saying he does not play for money but for Country.!


How he made Hitler his fan..?
When he went to Germany for Hockey World Cup he was injured by Germany Goal Keeper.!
In return he Ordered his Team mates to take revenge..!
Can you imagine someone challenging Germany citizen in front of Hitler..!
He by passed the ball from Goal keeper but didn’t do a Goal.,
This was the biggest shame for Germany and Hitler was impressed by his answer..!

There was a match When he didn’t Score a Single Goal.
On this he argued with match refree that the Goal post length is short because I can’t do a Goal.
This was found correct and goal post length was increased & latter he scored 8 goals..!


During his last time he became So Poor that he didn’t had Money to have Food, again he was offered a Coach Post by America and Germany but he refused saying if he teaches Hockey to them than INDIA will no more be a Champion in Hockey.
but our Govt didn’t offer him anything & it was INDIAN ARMY Who helped him.!

Once upon a time he went to see a Hockey match at ahemdabad but was not allowed in Stadium Saying We don’t recognize You..? That game was attended by Jawaharlal Nehru.!

Finally Cricket Icon Sir Don Bradman said “I’m a fan of Dhyan Chand & he scores Goals more easily than I Score runs.!”

Do you think he should be the 1st Sportsman for whom all the rules should have been amended and awarded “BHARAT RATNA”




Sydney installs machines that offer bus tickets in exchange for recycling

High-tech reverse vending machines that give recyclers rewards in exchange for plastic bottles or cans have been installed in the City of Sydney.

Sydney installs machines that offer bus tickets in exchange for recycling.

The machines can take and crush around 2,000 to 3,000 containers before they automatically email an adjacent store to tell staff they’re full. The store owners then empty the machine and send the contents off for recycling.

The move is an attempt to encourage more people to recycle their cans and bottle, and is part of a broader plan to set up an Australia-wide cash-for-recycling scheme, like the one currently in action in South Australia.

So far three machines have been installed around Sydney’s CBD, and they’re offering two-for-one food truck vouchers, bus tickets, or a 10 cent donation to charity group Clean Up Australia in exchange for rubbish. Recyclers can also choose to go into the draw to win a prime seat on the harbour for Sydney’s New Year’s Eve celebrations or earn points on an Envirobank points card.

Reverse vending machines also exist in other towns and cities across Australia, but not all offer the same rewards.

Even before being officially announced last week, three of Sydney’s machines had already filled up with more than 6,000 containers. And within the first three days of being launched, more than 10,000 containers were recycled between just two machines in Haymarket and Circular Quay.

Obviously these machines will only do a small part to counteract the effect of rubbish on the environment – according to the City of Sydney, around 15,000 bottles and cans are littered or thrown into landfill every MINUTE across Australia – but it’s hoped that the machines will increase awareness about recycling. Currently only about 42 percent of New South Wales’ bottles and cans are recycled each year.

“Container deposit schemes significantly increase recycling, reduce waste and protect wildlife and the environment from plastic pollution,” said Sydney’s Lord Mayor Clover Moore in a press release.

“We’re taking what action we can to reduce the amount of waste going to landfill, but will continue to lobby state and federal governments for reform on this issue.”
