Uri Alon: Why truly innovative science demands a leap into the unknown

Uri Alon: Why truly innovative science demands a leap into the unknown

While studying for his PhD in physics, Uri Alon thought he was a failure because all his research paths led to dead ends. But, with the help of improv theater, he came to realize that there could be joy in getting lost. A call for scientists to stop thinking of research as a direct line from question to answer, but as something more creative. It’s a message that will resonate, no matter what your field.

Innovative Financial Advisors Pvt. Ltd. – The Ancient Water Palaces!

Our ancestors applied this knowledge in water resource engineering to address challenges arising from seasonal scarcity. They designed and constructed dams and an array of water structures much earlier than the Greek, Roman or other ancient civilizations. Every region of the country developed its own water harvesting techniques, reflecting the geographical peculiarities and cultural uniqueness of different communities. Baori’s, Jhalaras, Water temples, Step Wells, and Kunds were constructed wherever deemed necessary.

In villages of India, there are countless stories from mythology, folklore and songs extolling the glory of our sacred rivers and lakes. The story of Bhagirath single handedly diverting the mighty Ganga has been told from generation to generation. Archeological sites of Mohenjodaro and Harrappa which date back 5000 years throw light on the awareness of the civilization about water resource management for domestic and irrigation purposes. Water was considered the purifier and hence utilized for religious ceremonies and rituals. The Vedic seers in several hymns invoked “Varuna” the presiding deity of Water, and request him to be generous to mankind and remove all physical defilements. In the Vedic period people took precautions to use water free from all impurities and took great amount of care in adequate supply of clean, hygienic and unpolluted water. Ancient and medieval Sanskrit literature also reveals that people had adequate and plentiful supply of water for drinking, cooking, washing and other purposes. They were clear about water quality and that water used for drinking, medical and domestic purpose should be reasonably soft, colorless and odorless. Great efforts were made to test and analyze different types of water collected in different places in different seasons. It was this basic infrastructure, which served as the foundation for building large and powerful empires. World history, as indeed our own, is full with instances of rise and fall of empires and civilizations as a direct result of the strength or weakness in management of water resources.

As per the report of Meghalaya Public health Engineering department, the Satvahanas (1st Century B.C.-2nd Century A.D.) introduced the brick and ring wells. Lake and well irrigation was developed on a large scale during the time of Pandya, Chera and Chola dynasties in south India (1st-3rd Century A.D.) and large structures were built across Cauvery and Vaigai rivers. The Rajput dynasty (1000-1200 A.D.) promoted irrigation works in northern India. The 647 sq.km Bhopal lake was built under King Bhoja. In the Medieval period, Mohammad Bin Tughlaq (1325-1351 A.D.) encouraged the farmers to build their own rain water harvesting systems and wells. In 1615, during the Mughal rule, Abdul Rahim Khan built a unique water supply system of the Burhanpur town (Madhya Pradesh)[1].

The state built only the large storages essential for irrigation and water supply for the capital cities and important towns. These arrangements by the administration were obviously not enough and therefore the village communities and individuals were encouraged to build their own water harvesting strategy to meet their domestic requirement of water. The communities being closely knit had a strong culture of providing voluntary labor and material contributions for building infrastructure for common welfare. The social norms for civilized behavior, interalia, enjoined on the community members to maintain these facilities, conserve and protect water from pollution and ensure its equitable and fair distribution. Social scientists, historians and scholars have found that there is no problem of water scarcity where the community organizations are strong and the people

rely upon their own efforts to build water harvesting structures. On the other hand, the situation gets worse where the people depend entirely on the state for water. The wisdom of our fore fathers which made water management an integral part of human life guided communities through times of water scarcity. This meant that these practices were perceived by the common man as a sacred duty and by the communities as part of good local self-governance and social responsibility.

Innovative Financial Advisors Pvt. Ltd. suggests, the current and upcoming community based interventions under CSR and other development agencies should be driven by a vision of equitable distribution of resources for entire community. The mutual benefit of each household within the community should be clear and communicated with priority. The watershed projects should have behavior change tools mandatorily to bridge gaps within the community arising from caste and gender differences. The hidden employment schemes should also focus on community developed autonomously managed watershed units so that people of zero and marginal income groups also have a stake and feels accountable for the water resources. Water-Wisdom at all levels of society is essential not only to conserve water but to combat climate change and address sustainability of water resources at a global level and make fresh water available in abundance for future generations.

Innovative Financial Advisors Pvt. Ltd – Need of Skill Development Initiatives in Urban Clusters

India is home to approximately 67 per cent of the population living under $ 2 a day. Poverty is widespread in India and is a predominantly a rural phenomena. However, people migrate from the rural areas to the urban in search of livelihood opportunities and it becomes important to provide them skill development trainings to uplift them out of poverty.

Innovative Financial Advisors Pvt. Ltd. understands for a developing country, skill and knowledge are drivers of economic and social growth. India is expected to be home of 500 million skill workers by 2022 which seems to be a difficult task. In order to achieve both the targets of economic growth and inclusive development, India needs to grow at more than 8 per cent. This means the secondary and tertiary sectors grows at 10 to 11 per cent, assuming agriculture grows at 4 per cent. Therefore, the demand for skilled workers in the secondary and tertiary sector will continue to rise in the coming years. This is good sign when every year 12 million people is expected to join the existing workforce.

Considering the fact that 12 million people are expected to join makes skill development in India an uphill task. This large workforce needs to be adequately skilled. This also means people migrating from primary to secondary or tertiary sector when the required set of skills is different from that of agriculture. This leaves a skill gap. Despite the ITIs and other govt. institutions, there is lack of infrastructure to formally train the workforce. Out of the present workforce of more than 450 million only 8 to 9 per cent are engaged in organized sector. In India, only about 5 per cent of the workforce has marketable skills, as compared to 50 per cent to 60 per cent in other countries.

India needs to take advantage of its demographic dividend and that can only happen when we achieve the target of 25 per cent of the work force with formal skills by the end of 2017. It is estimated that 50 -70 million jobs will be created in India over the next five years and about 75 per cent – 90 per cent of these additional employment avenues will require some vocational training. Looking at the demand of skilled man power there is a need to facilitate skill development trainings to the marginalized people in urban clusters. Innovative Financial Advisors Pvt. Ltd. suggests this will reduce the skill gap and match the demand of workforce with adequate skills for employment in SMEs. Enhancement in skill development will ensure more income flows to the local economy which will in return ensure increase in consumption levels and boost the growth rate of secondary and tertiary sectors.

International Youth Day – Innovative Financial Advisors Pvt. Ltd

1.8 billion people of the world population are youth. This day is observed every year to draw attention of government and other agencies towards to youth centric issues. The United Nations Generally Assembly passed a resolution accepting to observe 12th August to be International Youth Day. The assembly adopted 15 priority areas which included education, employment, hunger and poverty, health, environment, drug abuse, juvenile delinquency, recreational activities, girls and young women, participation, globalization, Information and communication technologies, HIV/AIDS, Youth and conflict and Intergenerational relations. The theme for this year is “Youth and Mental Health.”

In a developing country like India, mental illness is shrouded in stigma, ignorance and superstition. There are approximately 20 million Indians suffering from mental illness. As per WHO, 20% of India’s population will suffer from some form of mental illness by the year 2020. Innovative Financial Advisors Pvt. Ltd. believes that barely 1-2% of the health budget is dedicated to mental health, in comparison to 10 to 12% in other countries. In Medical colleges, students do a mere two week clinical posting at a psychiatry unit at the end of their training. There are less than 5000 psychiatrists addressing the issues of mental illness in the country. This is the importance that is given to this particular sector. What’s even disheartening is that 25 % of the mentally ill are homeless.

Mostly people suffering from mental illness face discrimination which leads to discouragement or exclusion of people who are trying to seek help because of the fear of stigma. This day provides the opportunity to speak out about these issues with the objective of overcoming stigma and discrimination to ensure that young people with mental health conditions can lead a full and healthy live free from isolation and unnecessary shame and openly seek the services and support they need. Youth plays a prominent role in development of a nation. A government needs to work towards increasing the available opportunities for the youth. Youth can play a pivotal role towards improvement of mental health in respect of training, research, and provision of clinical services to promote mental health in all sections of society. Efforts needs to be directed towards advocating the issue and helping the public become aware about the issue, which might also lead to an increased awareness. Even though India has trained manpower in general health services yet there is a limited number of mental health trained personnel based in urban settings. Youth will play a pivotal role towards improvement of mental health in respect of training, research, and provision of clinical services to promote mental health in all sections of society.
