3 years back our Emperor started his crazy experiments with economy by demonetising 86% of the currency notes!
Rest is history!
It was also an experiment to see how much we are conditioned to mutely surrender when our civil liberties and rights are taken away!
I talked with @email@example.com here about how the erratic extreme rainfall & the uncertainty of weather predictions stretch the dam managers and the enormous challenge we face to balance safety and necessity..
#Mullaperiyar dam, the present level is 138.05 feet, see how the inflow and water levels are changing in the reservoir.
Nothing in life is entirely risk free, and indeed science cannot demonstrate freedom from risk, particularly from as yet known risks, because ‘absence of evidence’ is not ‘evidence of absence’!
There are situations where engineers may disagree with one another. Some experts may consider the condition of a dam to be marginally safer than what others say it is. But nature has its own way, and experts’ expectations and calculations may go awry.
Engineering stalwarts like U. Ananda Rao of TN, Kuttiyammu of KER, Sreedhara Menon KSEB and P.H. Vaidhyanathan of Kerala PWD were the men behind this amazing project
3 CM level meetings between Kerala & Tamil Nadu with the persuasion & blessings by Pandit Nehru paved way to iron out the differences.
EMS & Kamaraj - 1958
Pattom Thanupillai & C. Subramaniam - 1960
EMS & Karunanidhi - 1969
Never ever forget the role of V.R. Krishna Iyer too
Finally #Windows11 downloaded to my Zenbook, looks cool, heard that the android apps integration may take some more time. I am looking forward to it, as I am a person who use extensively samsung notes and noteshelf.
The above line diagram will give u some broad idea about this project conceputalised in 1960s, which is still considered as an archetype for the concept of interlinking of projects, now being mooted by Government of India
The space restriction of the edit page of @firstname.lastname@example.org is not permitting even to give a brief description of this complex engineering marvel. It is ripe for a long form article :)
Parambikulam Aliyar Project is a complex system involves 3 river basins with 10 big & small reservoirs, 2 wires, an interconnect system of 50 km length with contour canal & tunnels, 8 HE Projects with more than 655 MW.
The project itself an engineering marvel
#Mullaperiyar update, the water level is steady for last 7 hours at 137.60 ft, since morning 5.00 am.
Inflow and outflow are now same and the reservoir is stabilised and stopped building up for the time being.
Mullaperiyar now touched 137 ft at 9 pm with an inflow of 5700 cusecs while TN drawing 2200 cusecs (maximum)
