Friend while anxiously awaiting and getting worried about the impending cyclone(low pressure area according to the Meteorological dept)it is the infficiency of this agency that add to our woes.While on one hand T.N.C.A is crossing its fingers on the test match the dept seems to take things lightly and say” it will cross the coast onWednesday,again thursday morning,again thursday night or friday nornin and today they tell the T.V people it will cross the coast between Chennai and Machili patnam on 3rd dec earkly morning!even their prediction of rains occasional or intermittent or heavy has not happenrd till this evening.In U,S I have seen in an exclusive weather channel,predictions made for a whole week and even the quantum of ice-fall predicted.
Of course I am aware of lack of certain infra structure but it is certainly not the same as it was in 1985 to1988 when I was teaching meteorology as one of the subjects under ocanography and used to take my students to the Meterological dept fecilities in nungambakkam chennai almost every month.In 1999 when I returned from U.S with a book costing90cents in ‘Giant’ a deptal store there with 100 years of weather statistics and dos and don’ts.I pho to a senior meterlogical officer a woman suggesting such a publication from our country with sponsors like port trusts,Agricultural depts,P.W.D,Shipping companies,AirPorts Authority, Air lines etc so that it will be very useful not only to the agencies concerned bit also general public.Alas!She poo=poohed my idea and said nothing would come out of it but that individually she is interested in reading the book I brought.A lomng way to go both in mind set and infrastructure.If there is big money then sky is the limit for all concerned.Example I.T.O.K all the best P.K
It’s said that first impressions take less than a minute to form. Every day, whether we are conscious of it or not, we leave almost indelible suggestions of ourselves in the minds of others. These suggestions are based on a multitude of factors and help others form opinions on our level of organization, our stamina, our self-respect, and our respect for others. Most people want to be seen in a positive light and one way to ensure this is to put your best foot forward.Your idea of finishing touch will be different from that of your friends and family. But, in the simple act of going a step further in your presentation of yourself, you will be able to demonstrate your respect for others and yourself, your attention to detail, your ability to organize and coordinate, your uniqueness, and your love of yourself.
I have already stated elsewhere, that you should learn to love yourself.
