Banashankari temple is one of many in the city to have adopted Swachh Mandir Abhiyaan. These temples come under the department of religious and charitable endowments or Muzrai.

A waste audit of 40 temples in the city found they generate around 5,600 kg of waste every week. All 70 temples un der the muzrai department will undertake the waste management exercise in the coming days. The department will extend the campaign to all its 34,000 temples in the state.

Narendra Modi launched Swachh Bharat Abhiyan

No Politics Clean IndiaOn the day of the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhiji and Lal Bahadur Shastriji, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched his nationwide cleanliness campaign, the ‘Swachh Bharat Mission’ or ‘Clean India Campaign’ from the Valmiki Basti in New Delhi.

After paying tribute at the memorials of Mahatma Gandhi and former Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri, Modi himself swept a pavement at Valmiki Basti, a colony of sanitation workers before the formal launch of the ‘Clean India’ drive at Rajpath.

Modi Said “Cleanliness is not only the responsibility of the ‘safaai kaamgar’, it is the responsibility of 125 crore Indians. If Indians can reach Mars at a cheap cost, can we not clean our neighbourhoods?”

Thanking the media for supporting this campaign, he said, “I know people will criticise me in the next few days, but to clean India I am ready to face the criticism.”

Modi asked people to take pictures of areas where they saw garbage, then clean the area and take pictures of the clean area. He asked people to upload these images on social media using MyGov, a mobile application.

He added, “I have also started a social media campaign, I have invited nine people to post pictures of them cleaning and they will invite another nine people. It includes Goa Governor Mridula Sinha, master blaster Sachin Tendulkar, Congress leader Shashi Tharoor, Bollywood actor Aamir Khan, Priyanka Chopra, Salman Khan, Yoga guru Ramdev baba and a team of Tarak Mehta ka Ooltah Chashmah.”

Why do readers share honest blogs more?

This articles was inspired from economic times featured article on Employee blogs. Their article was discussing about employees blogs and need for encouraging employees to blog. I too agree with thier article that an employee writing blog should be honest blog and not a blog post to increase company PR. Readers subscribe and more likely to return to blogs to reader his or her other posts.

If an employee discuss negative posts, the reader attaches greater credibility. Employee blogs would be shared for following reasons.

First, Employee blogs that contain honest criticism about the company are perceived to be more credible with readers. Readers feel goodwill towards such bloggers and reciprocate by sharing their blog with others, thereby improving the blogger’s stature.

Second,readers take pride in sharing their “discovery” with others, thereby improving their own stature.

Third, honest blog postings are considered interesting because they are unexpected, and consequently get more publicity in the traditional media as well as from other bloggers.

Company benefits tremendously from having an army of employees who are credible bloggers.When there are new developments that the company wants to share with its stakeholders (such as a new product launch, a recruitment effort, or a new corporate initiative), it is much easier to get the word out through employee blogs.

Ensure Employees maintain professional standards and not reveals confidential information such as financial performance or information about new product launches etc.

Facebook vs Google Plus Will Benefit You In The End

Google Plus has finally made their social network available to everyone. The competition or their battle can benefit you as a user in the end. Facebook, and at some point Google+, is becoming a social aggregator that takes everything you do and puts it all into one place. It is the ultimate sharing tool. You now can see what your friends are listening to/watching/doing and choose to listen to/watch/participate in real time with the click of your mouse. The Facebook user experience is getting prettier, more intuitive, and more fun.
