TamilNadu

On December, 2011 in my 100th blog post I wrote:

I was born in Tamil Nadu and had good education there until M.Phil (Bharathiar University - Environmental Sciences specializing in Environmental Physiology). Moved to USA to pursue
Ph.D in Environmental Sciences. God gave me privilege to complete MS in Computer Science also. During this period I have traveled so many places and had vast experiences. 
Acquired environmental knowledge from excellent people who were very knowledgeable in these fields and want to do something for Environment. 

Even after several decades of independence and great rulers with future vision, Tamil Nadu state still have not lived up to its potential.
We have best institutions - IIT, Anna University, REC, several other universities and best schools in India. But what has improved in these years of independence.
We still have poverty, lots of pollution and environmental problems. For example - we have so many polluted areas where so many industries pollute the fertile resources. 
Several part of the state are without trees. We don't care for our soil resources - river beds are dug for using soil for constructions and more and more buildings are built in agricultural areas.
We spoil our lands, forests, soils and marine environments, as much as we can. Foreign industries also flock over here. We did not learn even several years after Bhopal disaster. Proper Environmental laws and mitigation have to be designed, implemented and strictly followed. Escrow accounts should be maintained by the Government, funded by all these industries for environmental benefits. These industries should show their environmental improvement plans, how they are going to implement them and what actions will they take in case of environmental issues. I am certainly sure that these foreign industries will do these things to save their environments in their country. So they should equally treat the country they are using to manufacture their products and getting the profit. These environmental benefits can be efficiently implemented with very little percentage of their profit.

We have best natural resources such as SOLAR and WIND. We have been utilizing wind (I personally feel we went overboard in putting up the so many windmills). But we need to tap on Solar energy.
Also in Tamil Nadu, We always have been fascinated by the movie industry. We have been selecting movie people as our rulers for the most period after the independence. I am not against movie people coming into politics, but all I am asking them is to do GOOD AND MOVE FORWARD if they end up as political winner. 

These days I see more and more people flocking to TASMAC - irony is that their main office is in a road that has a name starting with Gandhi ( who stood against liquor - Still Prohibition is practiced in Gujarat - his birth state).
As an Environmental toxicologist, I am always against any toxic substance affecting health. I am crying from my heart seeing our young resources flocking into these liquor stores. See how this bad and evil industry have flourished in front of us.
Already we live in extremely polluted Area (AIR, WATER, SOIL and FOOD). Along with that TASMAC products will do a symbiotic effect on these people's health. These people also smoke. How much one's heart, kidney and brain can take. 
I need not say this, they themselves have said that in their website - http://tasmac.tn.gov.in/brands.htm - The topmost letters in the webpage in red letters - MADHU - NAATUKKU, VETTUKKU, UYIRUKKU KEDU = meaning - ALCOHOL - BAD FOR COUNTRY, HOUSE AND LIFE. Even the government is knowingly doing this evil thing for money.

So many negatives - industries flocking (wrote an earlier article on 2008) and polluting Tamil Nadu environment, Negative Politics with only greed as objective and no ethics, abusing environment (extracting non renewable resources and depleting the sterile agricultural lands, building non environmental friendly system which would affect exponentially in the case of natural disasters) without proper following of environmental law. 
Building systems without any limits with greed as only objective and not caring for environment, human health and future generations.Fracking can cause pollution and additives that are needed can cause so many adverse affect on human health, animal health and environment, contamination, toxic chemical exposure, sterile lands and Earthquakes. Now without any hesitation you are trying to do fracking in the rice bowl area. Please don't do for the sake of future generations.
Cutting off trees, creating concrete jungles on lakes and watershed areas, building non environmental system all along polluted coast, removing top soil from river beds and rivers, removing mountain tops - all these are leading to desertification. Already the area is affected by severe droughts, 
God men, Politicians, Educators, Hospitals to name some - You know who you are and you have earned enough for your eight generations to follow - so Please do something good for all the people especially future generation (which includes you children also).

தற்போதைய சராசரி தமிழனின் நிலையை நினைவு படுத்த - 
எவ்வளவு மொட்டை அடித்தாலும் தாங்குவான் தமிழன்.

I can only pray for the future generations.  Youngsters should learn from all these happenings and take control for the future generations to come. Internationally, Hate crimes have increased and some of the innocent people have been killed. Where is the World going?. We need good leaders to take control of the situation and provide appropriate solutions.

Now it is February, 2017 and the state of Tamil Nadu has become more worse. I am settled in USA and I always wanted to do good things for the ROOTS. We are doing that in many ways. But Nature - rainfall has almost stopped and slowed us down.My brother who was an IT expert in Singapore has become sustainable Farmer. He started farming in 2010 and until now we did not get proper power (utility)  even after 7 years for agricultural purposes. As educated farmers, we face these So think about the normal farmers what they had to go through.
We are proud of our cattle we rear. 
But we are more worried about the negatives that are taking place. 
As a son of a honest Tax Officer, 
Dad

who worked in Tamil Nadu Government - Department of Commercial Taxes, I am too worried about the corruptions. and non ethical happenings, All I can do is do our good deeds such as helping and training people and businesses to get better opportunities and Pray to God for Positives to Tamil Nadu. Historically, We had very very positive personalities such as Thiruvalluvar   (who contributed the great Thirukural which gives us details of how to lead, live a life), Avvaiyar (who gave us Aathichoodi which starts with அறம் செய விரும்பு meaning - Intend to do right things), Bharathiar and several greats from Kamarajar,  to  the recent Great Dr. Abdul Kalam. So along those lines praying for Positives to my Brothers and Sisters. On May 2011, I wrote this blog topic on leaders and youngsters should select and elect good leader(s). Praying for everyone. Peace and prosperity for All.
எத்தனை காலம் தான் ஏமாற்றுவார்... கொஞ்சமாவது நல்லது செய்யுங்கள்...
விவசாயிகளுக்கு நல்லது செய்யாவிட்டாலும், வயிற்றில் அடிக்காதீர். அது நல்லது அல்ல. நாட்டிற்கும் உலகத்துக்கும் அது கேடு விளைவிக்கும்

பிறக்க போகும் நாட்கள் எல்லாம் நல்லவையாக பிறக்கட்டும்.
