This post is a part of Linda’s stream of consciousness. Normally I would write on the theme for this week, “element” but I have decided to do something a bit different with it by using multiple elements out of ‘water, air, fire and earth’. After all a picture speaks a thousand words 😛
Somehow the link feature isn’t working on my blog 😥 so will post the link to Linda’s post in the comments…do check out the other great entries!
2) The terrorist attacks and blasts that take place which politicians shamelessly exploit to change a tragic incident into vote bank politics.

Though traditionally water is taken as drinking fluid, this is a take on the bodily fluids as well.
There is a positive side to usage of water too, a project called “Jal Jyoti” which uses the concept of bottled light to provide light to the various slums in Mumbai that have been plunged into darkness because of the lack of electricity, income and space.
So what is this‘Bottled-Light’? It is just a 1.25 litre PET bottle filled with water and about 10 ml of bleach, the sole purpose of which is to prevent algal growth. A hole is then drilled in the roof of a slum and the bottle is installed – half outside the roof and half inside the house. The sunlight hits the upper half of the bottle and due to ‘Total Internal Reflection’ disperses the light into the home acting like a 55 watt bulb. Cheap to install and free to run, the Bottled-Light works for 5 years and makes for a sustainable solution for low-income communities.

1) The food that we derive from Earth, that we put into our bodies are considered to be of lesser importance than the things that we use for luxury or to decorate ourselves with.
2) Because some people will feed cows to obtain good karma and make reservations for a proper next birth but not a hungry child, after all what benefit does one derive from feeding a fellow human!?
