Gobar Brick , Cow Dung and Tiles


Houses that  are heat resistant both in winter and Summer are rare these days. As we grow the socio-economic  ladder  , we want to live in a pucca  house made of cement.

In-fact , We want every thing "Permanent ", "Ever Lasting"  things in life. Forgetting that  Every thing in this world is transient. We want to make a pucca house that the next generation does not like and they want to change the design of house , buy new furniture , buy new bed sheets curtains and in-fact the new generation keep coming back  and ask was  change in house itself. Some even go beyond  They want to move to new better places not just for jobs but for better life. Yet ,we want to make a pucca houses . A house that lasts generations..

Mobility is key factor in remaining employable these days. You find thousands of houses vacant just because the residents have moved away to make better living. Yet we want have house that lasts for ever.

We never buy a Car , we the thought that it will last for ever, because we know at the back of our mind the life of the Car is limited and it will not last decades. And then , we want to change it every few years .. but we want a pacca house that lasts forever and ever. 

Education has made us aware of the ill impact of climate change , pollution and plundering of all natural resources , Yet we want to have a solid house that can even bear the blunt of nuclear bomb.

Gypsum and lime have been used extensively in the construction of the building for centuries. Yet,we love to trust the cement that comes in a bag.

Mud and Animal dung have been mixed together since years, But , lot of the modern formally educated lot will ask for references . Unless there is a published work on, not student from any standard university can work on such materials or products for their Phd or Mtech Studies.

Data Interpretation : Understanding OLS Regression Results and Outcomes

Data Interpretation Understanding OLS Regression Results & Outcomes Puneet Arora  These days Regression as a statistical method is undervalued and many are unable to find time under the clutter of machine & deep learning algorithms. But, everyone knows that “ Regression “ is the base on which the Artificial Intelligence is built on. In this article, we will learn to interpret the result os OLS regression method. In this method, the OLS method helps to find relationships between the various interacting variables. The mathematical relationship is found by minimizing the sum of squares between the actual/observed values and predicted values.  But before, we can do an analysis of the data, the data needs to be collected. There are primarily two ways by which we can obtain data for regression: Primary source and Secondary source. In the primary source, we directly collect data from the source (Original) for example by getting some survey form filled and in

Types of Kitchen Waste for a Gardner

PodCasts: " Garbage Production is a Sign of Development  ".  But is it Good or Bad contribution to GDP    Once you are able to organize the waste, then making it more is not that annoying, but if the waste is spread around you, then trouble is in front, and you think a hundred times before adding it further. The solution is ... Use pick up the van and throw it far-off the municipality dumps it in a nearby village (Now a Garbage Dump). Some developed and clever countries dump it in other countries, some burn it in the air, some dump it in the seas and oceans. If real cleanliness is required then the production of waste will have to be reduced, the consumption will have to be reduced, the rest is eye-wash. But no one wants to do it because it reduces GDP, reduces the pace of development. Actually waste is development, but, it appears that development is the process of converting natural resources into waste. In these three episodes of PodCasts ( S1E5, S1E6, S1E7

Overcoming Barriers to Roof Top Raise Bed Gardening

As it normally so  high that it is hard to carry and construct Raise Beds on rooftops or in upper floors of the building. In-fact , I have been feeling the same challenge , that is why I had to resorted to Plastic Buckets and Containers. It's okay to use Plastic for growing your own food. But , alternatives to plastic must also be considered and put into practice. Move  over , we should think about overcoming the limitations of growing plastic buckets. A  raised bed with  potting mixture is better for growing veggies as compared to the plastic containers. This is because a raised bed would store more volume of soil  and will have a better mico-ecosystem as compared to the ecosystem of plastic containers. They allow us to have better drainage and the
