MGIRI launched a viable solar charkha in May 2008. The 'mini solar-charkha based cotton cluster experiment' at Wardha has proved that the price of garment could be drastically reduced while more than doubling the daily earning capacity of the workers. It is hoped that perhaps this sustainable technological initiative could be the answer for which the Father of the Nation made a clarion call to the scientists in the 1929. Under the leadership of MGIRI a viable solar charkha has been developed. It was first demonstrated at the Khadi exhibition at Jhalawad during 19-20 May 2008. Initially it was designed to operate the existing 8-spindle New Model Charkha (NMC). Since a battery is part of the system the charkha can run not only during the day time when sun is available but also 3 to 4 or even more hours in the night depending on the storage capacity of the battery. The spinner has to intervene only when there is a breakage in the yarn during spinning. Interestingly the breakages are far fewer and the yarn is more uniform as compared to NMC. In the new setup weaving will become the creative part of human involvement and spinning will be a gift from nature. The khadi statistics indicates that the attraction towards hand-spinning is dwindling because of the drudgery involved and low wages earned. The present breakthrough can usher in a new era in the field of khadi. The above development has enormous implications to energy management, rural development, social welfare, textile and many other contexts and is an indicator that spinning could emerge as a decentralized 'home industry' following the case of weaving.

The 11-day Ganesh festival left the city with 200 metric tonne (MT) of waste last year. The Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) expects this figure to soar as the number of idols has risen by almost 10%. To tackle the unkempt look the city dons after the festivity is over, the BMCs solid waste management (SWM) cell has deployed 1,100 vehicles to collect nirmalya (floral offerings) from 12,089 Ganesh mandals and housing societies. On an average, each ward will have 45 vehicles to collect waste during the festival. These vehicles will also have a public address
system to request people to hand over the nirmalya, said BP Patil, chief engineer, SWM cell, BMC. The civic body has placed 180 nirmalya kalash at 80 immersion sites in the city, 27 of which are along the shoreline. Special checks will be undertaken to monitor effective dumping of nirmalya, added Patil. Going green this season, the SWM has also marked out nine sites for composting nirmalya. The BMC has roped in advance locality management (ALM) units to help them with the task. Major immersion sites such as Girgaon Chowpatty and Dadar Chowpatty generate most nirmalya. With the help of various ALMs, the task of composting nirmalya can be handled effectively, said Seema Redkar, officer on special duty (OSD) for this ALM programme. For the past nine years, Pestom Sagar Resident Association (PSRA) has been vermicomposting nirmalya. Forty MT of nirmalya is treated every year in vermiculture pits. The manure produced is used in gardens and open spaces. said Dr Vijay Sanghole, president of PSRA. Orchid ALM trust has been composting nirmalya with a similar process at the Gorai dumping ground. Eighty MT of nirmalya from Dahisar to Malad is disintegrated here, generating 25 MT of manure, said Ashok Mam, an executive from Orchid Hotel. Tejpal Scheme Rahivasi Sangh, an ALM from Vile Parle(East), has adopted a garden in Andheri (East) to compost festival leftovers. We segregate biodegradable waste from the nirmalya kalash and process it with aerobic bacteria culture powder, said Pratibha Belwalkar, president of the ALM.

All of the ORGANIC INDIA products are certified Kosher except for Chyawanprash. The ghee used in Chyawanprash comes from a farm that is not certified Kosher. A very little steeping time for the tulsi herb tea ids required. However more steeping will tend to release more nutritional and healing properties of TULSI which is an added benefit to the product.
This tea however is expensive due to its complicated manufacturing process and due to its highly increased quality.
