Post of July 15, takes a lighter look at it. I have completed 50 years of service to the education and have talked about it in my blog entitled “50 years of Service to Education” accessible at: https://bhushan.org/50-years-of-service-to-education/ The link https://www.romtekonline.com/journey.html has details of the products developed for education and the link at https://www.romtekonline.com/clientele.html contains information on Institutions served.

SOLAR FARM ON CANAL
Old friends-I and Prof Rupender Pal Singh Sukerchakia met in Ludhiana. Driving back from there to Delhi, along the Sutlej Canal, I found almost 5 kM of the Canal, near Ludhiana, covered by solar panels. It looked interesting. Sharing the pictures.

GETTING HANDS DIRTY
SHARING A POST ORIGINALLY FROM DEEPA:
The above link, posted by Deepa Tiwari, takes you to a New York Post article headed: “We need to stop sanitizing everything and let bacteria back in our lives”
The post was reminiscent of my childhood:-
Getting our hands dirty in the “matti”–(earth in the garden) was never an issue with my parents (Though Dad was Sessions Judge-not a farmer).
My elder brother (IIT Kgp 1959 batch) planted Carrots, Radish amongst other things. He explained to me that the carrot is underground. I used to pull one out every day to check the growth(of the carrot) and thrust it back in, until he discovered one day, why the things he planted were disappearing.

I was simply reminded of the pictures of bees on Sunflowers, I had once captured on camera when passing through Sunflower fields in Rup Nagar of Punjab. I wondered if the bees taking in honey really care.Those pictures pasted below:

PLIGHT OF A PROFESSOR
I have always sympathized with teachers, esp. those who take subjects, with 100% mathematical basis like electromagnetism.Dedicated to them:
After the last lecture in a semester of teaching such a subject, the Professor returned to staff room, somewhat ruffled. On being asked the reason, he said: “At last, after 20 lectures, a student actually asked a question, today!”
“What was it?”
“Sir, May I open the window?”

50 YEARS OF SERVICE TO EDUCATION:
This is my story of how I Put my IIT Education to work.
It is little realized but true:-IIT education is heavily subsidized by the Indian Tax Payer and the IIT Engineer is a debtor to the society. In a lifetime of practical work, I have attempted to pay back. Please read about it at:

INDIA GOES TO THE MOON
Our astronaut in space was asked by a news reporter, “How do you feel?”
“How would you feel,” the Indian replied, “if you were stuck here, on top of 10 million parts, each one supplied by the lowest bidder?”

CREATING BUSINESS OPPORTUNITIES CREATIVELY !!
A guy walks into a post office one day to see a very well-dressed, middle-aged, balding man standing at the counter methodically placing “Love” stamps on a huge stack of bright pink envelopes. Each envelope had hearts all over it.
The man then took out a perfume bottle and sprayed scent all over the envelopes.
His curiosity getting the better of him, the guy goes up to the balding man and asks him what he is doing.
The man says “I’m sending out 1,000 Valentines cards signed, ‘Guess who?'”
“But why would you want to do that?”
“I’m a divorce lawyer,” the man replied.

ABOUT KUL BHUSHAN-AN INDIAN NAVY COMMANDER, IN PAKISTAN’s CAPTIVITY
RE KUL BHUSHAN-A HOSTAGE HELD BY PAKISTAN:
A PRACTICAL APPROACH
I am too small a person to speak on such matters, But I pray that that such matters be resolved by secret & private diplomacy-some kind of exchange, a give & take may be worked out quietly to get him back alive.
This is practically a hostage situation and scoring points at Courts, Press, international fora (forums) is, probably, counter productive, to the fundamental objective of getting our man back.
I found myself unable to appreciate the newspaper pictures of our people eating sweets on receipt of court judgement, which would, almost certainly, have had the effect of hapless Kul Bhushan being beaten up & denied water for days.
Our man-our brother, our son, our father- faces extreme torture day in and day out. It is a grim scene. We have nothing to gloat over.The judgement does not call for champagne. Singing anybody’s praise is pre-mature.

SMILE A WHILE
Once upon a time, visitors were allowed into an ICU.
An Indian business man visited his Chinese friend, who was hospitalized.The Chinese pleaded, weekly, “Li kai yang qi guan”. The Indian was too eager to help but did not follow the language.The Indian fumbled.
Once again, “Li kai yang qi guan”, the Chinese muttered, with great effort. Then his head fell to one side, body went limp and he died.
Later that year, the Indian visited China and learnt the meaning of “Li kai yang qi guan” –“Get off my Oxygen tube”
You may now know why they wont let you into an ICU.
