Waterborne Diseases Can Be Prevented

The primary cause of waterborne diseases are drinking of contaminated water, and it can be avoided by drinking contamination free water. The drinking water quality of our nation is not suitable for the drinking purposes because water contains the various disease-causing agent. According to the UN report, India’s rank is 120th among all the countries in terms of water quality.

As we are living in a world of technology and still talking about the waterborne disease but we should know that more than 70% of Indian population lives in the ruler area and most of the people in those are don’t use any water filtration system. The primary source of drinking water in the ruler area is groundwater. But access to healthy water in India increased from 62% in 1991 to 86% in 2011.

Avoid Waterborne Disease Use Water Purification System

Water Purification System

The water purification system is one of the best ways to avoid contamination from the water. There is various purification system which is sufficient to eliminate all kinds of impurities from the drinking water. The most common water purification in India is water purifier. A report says that at the end of 2024 the sales of the water purifier will reach $4.1 billion.

The use of water purifier is essential for all the household because one person in India get affected by the waterborne diseases in every four hours. Not all the person affected by waterborne diseases lost a life, but those who survive have weakened the immune system, which can change their whole lives.

The water purifier is based on various technology such as reverse osmosis (RO), Ultra-violate (UV), and Ultra-Filtration (UF). All these water purification technologies are enough to punch out all the impurities present in the water. An RO water purifier can eliminate all kinds of dissolved contaminants, whereas UV water purifier can remove all types of microbial contamination present in the water.

The UF technology is mainly used in combination with the RO and UV water purifier because it can eliminate high molecular size contamination present in the water.

This Start-Up is Changing The Face of Real Estate Investment in India, Pay Attention!

This Start-Up is Changing The Face of Real Estate

Real estate deal is considered as one of the most complicated investments in our country. Owning a property is surely a hectic task but still, it remains the favourite kind of expenditure for people who wish to see their money growing consistently. The stocks and bonds in a company are known as “standard assets” whereas real estate is considered “alternative asset”. An asset which was not in reach of everyone and buying it was quite an expensive deal, until now! Thanks to the young minds at work who are making constant efforts to make the luxury available for everyone in society.

The start-up that we are going to talk about today is making head turns with its unique and progressive investing concept in real estate.

It’s quite a rare instance in life that we come across investments which not only fulfill our dreams but have the natural ability to grow exponentially over time. Agrocorp Landbase, an augmenting corporate with its headquarters in Gurugram, is led by two young pioneers, who started in 2012 with a firm resolution in mind to change the face of the real estate development in India. And so far, they have delivered 7 projects leading them closer towards their ultimate dream. So what this concept is all about?

Agrocorp Landbase

You must have heard about gated residential society or corporate zones in your vicinity. Well, Agrocorp has taken the notion a notch above and set up a gated community of farmhouse land near Bangalore to make the luxury of farmhouses available for everyone. There was once a time when such opulence was only for rich and richer of the society but no more!

Agrocorp has already delivered 7 projects with the same concept in Bangalore and more than 500 families have put their trust in them. They not only provide their clients with a piece of land but take complete responsibility for the maintenance of the community too. The prices are competitive but nothing that an average salaried person cannot afford.

Agrocorp Landbase

The location of these projects is in North Bangalore, which is booming with realty growth and development as you are reading this article. Structured in the surrounding area of major corporates and PSU’s like KIA Motors and BEL, the returns on this investment are bound to get quite high.

Agrocorp Landbase

In the words of Agrocorp’s Directors, Ayan Nagpal, and Arush Nagpal, “ Although our projects scream good investment and consistent returns, we wish to remind everyone that our aim is to provide a second home for everyone where they could spend some quality time with their families over the weekend.”

On asking, why they chose North Bangalore only for their venture, they both smile and answer, “ The scenic drive towards these projects are breathtaking. We didn’t wish to provide just an investment opportunity to the people of Bangalore, we also wanted to do everything right to win their hearts too.” Well, seem like they are curating their success story with compelling enthusiasm and determined mindset.

We all have seen how ISRO’s scientists were left heartbroken when they lost touch with the Vikram lander 13 minutes before when it was about to land near the south pole of the Moon. Though Vikram’s performance was absolutely normal until the contact was lost. ISRO has begun analyzing the data to figure out what has actually happened. Seeing all this, Prime Minister, Narendra Modi has reinvigorated ISRO’s spirits with his speech in Bengaluru.

This is not the end, ISRO is now gearing up itself to bring some interesting projects in the year to come. Apart from the Chandrayaan Mission, ISRO is planning for some other missions which include Ganganyaan, Aditya-L1, Shukryaan mission, India’s own space station, Mangalyaan 2, etc.

Have a look at them in detail.

1. 2019-2020: Aditya-L1 mission

This will be the first-ever mission to study the sun that was announced in June last year. The mission is hoping to address the questions which are unanswered till now.

2. December 2021/January 2022: Gaganyaan mission

Shukrayaan Mission

This is a mission which is the study of the atmosphere of Venus.  It will also explore the dense and hot atmosphere of Venus and the surface surrounding it using a probe. The mission is set to launch in 2023.

5. 2023: India’s Space station

India’s Space station

The mission will be launched to conduct microgravity tests by sending humans to space. It will be launched in the year 2023. The Indian government is still working on this project and will submit the details of the plan to them soon. The mission will take up to five to seven years. This is an extension of the Rs. 10,000 crores Gaganyaan mission.

Above mentioned is the list of some of the exciting projects that are streamlined to be launched in the years to come ahead. ISRO is working very hard for these projects to launch them successfully as they involve a heavy flow of investment too. We are quite excited to see them get launched soon. Stay tuned with Gudstory for more updates.
