बांबूची फुले- आनंदाचे डोही दुःखाचे तरंग!

7 May 2011 at 01:23

बांबू बद्दल लिहावे तेव्हढे थोडेच! जगाच्या कानाकोप-यात आढळणारी एक वनस्पती! वृक्षाच्या जंगलाच्या कित्येक पटीने वातावरणातील कार्बन शोषून घेणारी जीवउत्पत्ती! वादळ वाऱ्यात वाकेल पण मोडणार नाही या बाण्याने जगणारा एक जीव! जगात सर्वात जास्त म्हणजे दिवसाला ३ फूट वाढणारे झाड! चुकले.. बांबू वृक्ष नसून एक गवत आहे! बांबूचा अगदी जन्मापासून मृत्युपर्यंत उपयोग होतो! बाळ जन्मल्याबरोबर त्याला पारड्यात ठेवतात तर मृत्युनंतर बाम्बूच्याच तिरडीवर नेतात. बांबू पासून शिल्प, शोभेच्या वस्तू, भांडी, खाण्याचे पदार्थ, बांधकाम, मंडप, कपडे, कागद, छपराचे पत्रे, प्लायवूड आणि अगदी स्यनिटरी नपकीन बनविल्या जातात. मी बांबूला लोखंडी बार ऐवजी कॉंक्रेट मध्ये वापरलेत. असा हा बहुगुणी बांबू! भारतात जवळपास सर्व राज्यात बांबू आढळतो. बांबूचे आयुष्य ४५ ते १२० वर्षाचे आहे. बांबू बुडातून कापला की ४-५ वर्षात पूर्ण मोठा होतो. अशाप्रकारे बांबू एक रीनोवेबल बायो प्रोडक्ट आहे. बांबूला ४५ ते १२० वर्षाने फुले येतात. एकाच वेळी वेगवेगळ्या ठिकाणी लावलेल्या एका जातीच्या सर्व बांबूला एकाच वेळी फुले येतात. आणि आचर्याची गोष्ट म्हणजे की फुले आले की बांबूची झाडे उन्मळून पडतात आणि सार जंगल एकाचवेळी साफ होते.

अशी बांबूची फुले बघण्याचे भाग्य आणि तेच बांबू उन्मळून पडताना बघण्याचे दुर्देव्य मला लाभले!

नागपूरच्या शासकीय तंत्रनिकेतनाच्या परिसरात बांबूचे बन आहे. त्यांना फुले आलेली २०११ साली बघायला मिळाली. त्याचे छायाचित्र खाली दिलेले आहे.

फुले आल्यावर बांबू कसे उन्मळून, तुटून पडतात त्याचे चित्र वर दिलेले आहे. अधिक चौकशी करता हा योग ४५ वर्षानंतर आल्याचे कळले

या कुतुहलाचे अद्याप निच्छित कारण कळलेले नाही. मात्र फुलो-या करिता बांबूच्या पेशीतील सारी शक्ती फुलांकडे एकवटली जाते आणि बांबू कामजोर होवून तुटून पडतात.पुढे जमिनीवर पडलेल्या नवीन फुलांपासून नवीन बांबूची रोपे तयार होतात. म्हणजे नवीन जीवाला जन्म द्यायला जुने मृत्यूला कवटाळतात!

बांबूला फुले आलेत की ती येणाऱ्या संकटाची चाहूल समजतात कारण त्यानंतर मोठा दुष्काळ पडतो व रोगराई पसरते. उत्तर पूर्वेला बांबूला फुले माणसाच्या वाईट कृत्यामुळे आणि देवाच्या कोपामुळे येतात असे समजल्या जाते. एकाचवेळी संपूर्ण बांबूच्या जंगलाला फुले येतात आणि सारे जंगल साफ होते.

खरे वैज्ञानिक कारण यामागे असे आहे- बांबूची फुले जमिनीवर पडतात त्यावर जीव जंतू, उंदीर घुशी वाढतात, या उंदीर घुसी रोगजंतू पिके खावून टाकतात त्यामुळे दुष्काळ पडतो तसेच रोग राई पसरते, उन्दरामुळे प्लेग, टायफाइड या सारखे रोग पसरतात.

अशा अनेक गोष्टी बांबूच्या आहेत! पुढील वेळी पुढील गोष्ट!

Writting Hypothesis for the Research.

Hypothesis is an essential part to address the problem of research work . Hypothesis should be a scientific hypothesis. Scientific means it can be tested with existing methods.Hypothesis is the predicted answer to the research question. It may go wrong after conducting the research. Hypothesis is a testable statement of problem or phenomenon. Hypothesis  involves at least one independent variable and other dependent variables for testing. Independent variable is that statement which can be concluded using dependent variables. Depended variable are the known processes, statement or values.Thus hypothesis is a statement that states observations, phenomenon or scientific problems that can be further tested by observations, experiments or investigations.

Definitions of Hypothesis
ƒ “A hypothesis is a conjectural statement of the relation between two or more variables”.

ƒ “Hypotheses are single tentative guesses, good hunches – assumed for use in devising theory or planning experiments intended to be given a direct experimental test when possible”. (Eric Rogers, 1966)(Kerlinger, 1956)

ƒ “Hypothesis is a formal statement that presents the expected relationship between an independent and dependent variable.”(Creswell, 1994

To formulate a hypothesis-

  1. list the research question/s.
  2. List the dependent and independent variables (statements)
  3. Define the scope
  4. Predict the outcome of the research work.
  5. Formulate the  hypothesis covering above aspects..

Examples:

  • ‘In response to use of green technology for sustainable development and cheap
    housing, Bamboo can be a competent feasible alternative to steel reinforcement in cement concrete members
    .’

In the example above scope is described by ‘use of green technology for sustainable development and cheap housing,’

Independent variable is bamboo as reinforcement in cement concrete members.

Dependent variable is steel reinforcement in cement concrete members.

The out come of the research work may be true or false.

 

  • ‘Workers satisfaction in Life Insurance Corporation increase work productivity’
  • ‘LED lights consume less energy than CFL lights’

How to calculate weighted CGPA?….Dinesh Bhonde

A note for CBGS Programmes of Universities and Autonomous Colleges

In grade point evaluation system, the  grades  are awarded depending upon the performance of the candidate in  the particular course on the specified scale. Grade Points are obtained by multiplying grade by credit. Credit is nothing but the importance implied to the particular course. Generally, in India credits are related with the teaching learning hours allotted for the particular course in a week. Grade Point Average is the sum of all grade points divided by sum of all credits obtained in the examination. Cumulative Grade Point Average(CGPA) is the average of Grade Points obtained in all the examinations (terms).

CGPA CALCULATIONS FOR FACTORED GPA

tables

FORMULAE

Grade Point (GP) = Grade (G) x Credit (C)—–(1)

Grade Point Average (GPA) = ∑(GP) ÷ ∑C —–(2)

f= GPA weight factor

Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) =  ∑ (f x GPA) ÷ ∑f—–(3)

OR

Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) = ∑ (f x GP) ÷ ∑ (f x C)—–(4)

Example: For 5th semester CGPA

CGPA= (GP1xf1 + GP2xf2 + GP3xf3 + GP4xf4+ GP5xf5) ÷ (f1+f2+f3+f4+f5)

In the example stated in the table, the f is same up to 4 semester (0.2), hence CGPA will be the same as calculated for normal CGPA without any multiplying factor.

Go back to old Gmail Compose Box

Gmail has recently introduced new compose box. At the top of your compose boox, there is a link. ‘Try out new compose experience’. Dont press the link, the experience is very painful. The new design is confusing and less user friendly. Minimal design, invisible tools, sticking to right hand side of your screen, no movability make me panic using it. With a such large screen of Computer why such minimal design? How to swich back to earlier one? Option is hidden in riight hand side of task bar menu. You are trapped in google maze. Google You too! Make better and user friendly designs Dont give such new experience. Other wise users may switch to other email accounts.

Any way, I have searched out how to go back to earlier compose box. Accidently if you have tried and caught up in new design, you can opt following way to get out of trap.

Very painfful experience

Very painfful experience

Just click the down arow placed at right hand side bottom corner.

Click temperory switch back to o;d compose.

You are now free. Never click the link of new experience again!!

My Bamboos blossom and die!!! — Dinesh Bhonde

This is a photograph of Bamboo Flowers at Government Polytechnic, Nagpur premises. Such opportunity to snap bamboo blossom has come at least after 48 years. Bamboo blossoms after 48 to 120 years. All plants of the same stock flower at the same time, regardless of differences in geographic locations or climatic conditions.

Life ends

The bamboo plant ( Actually it is grass) dies as it blossoms. See photograph 2,  the bamboos are broken from middle portion after flowering.

The lack of environmental impact on the time of flowering indicates the presence of some sort of “ALARM CLOCK” in each cell of the plant which signals the diversion of all energy to flower production and the cessation of vegetative growth.This mechanism, as well as the evolutionary cause behind it, is still largely a mystery.

It is observed  that bamboo flowering and seeding of bamboo forests is followed by disaster, epidemic and famine.

In NE India people believe it is a God’s play against human misdeed.

The mass fruiting  has direct economic and ecological consequences also.

Actually,the huge increase in available fruit in the forests often causes a boom in rodent populations.

As the number of rodents increase, they consume all available food, including grain fields and stored food, sometimes leading to famine. These rats can also carry dangerous diseases such as typhus, typhoid, and bubonic plague, which can reach epidemic proportions as the rodents increase in number.
