Satyapal Malik

Panaji, Dec 2 : Imploring politicians to emulate Mahatma Gandhi vis a vis adoption of morality and humility in public life, Goa Governor Satya Pal Malik on Monday said that in India, a person becomes mad (with power) if he is elected as an MLA.

“I want to say one thing. He (Mahatma Gandhi) had no pride. Today, in India, a person becomes mad after he becomes an MLA,” Malik said, while speaking at a function organised by the Goa government’s Art and Culture Ministry to commemorate the 150th birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.

“He (Gandhi) introduced morality in politics. The first reference to morality in public life was made by Buddha. Mahatma Gandhi directed everyone to adopt morality in public life. It is a big thing. First we had Chanakyaneeti, according to which in statecraft you could do anything. You could cheat, betray trust, you could do anything. This changed with Bapu,” Malik said.

The Governor also said that Buddha was the world’s greatest personality because he discovered a path to Nirvana in life.

Koodankulam

Chennai, May 27 : The second 1,000 MW atomic power plant of Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd (NPCIL) at Kudankulam that was shutdown due to high vibrations in its generator has restarted power generation.

According to Power System Operation Corporation Limited, the atomic power plant that was shutdown on May 21, restarted power generation on Tuesday.

A team of six Russian specialists from turbine manufacturer Power Machines had come to Kudankulam to complete the vibration adjustment of the new generator stator in the second unit.

India’s atomic power plant operator — Nuclear Power Corporation of India Ltd (NPCIL) has two 1,000 MW power units supplied by Russia’s Rosatom.

On Tuesday, the two units together touched a peak generation of 1,304 MW and the average generation 659 MW.

“In March 2020, preventive maintenance was completed at Block 2 (Unit 2), in the framework of which the generator stator was successfully replaced,” a Rosatom official had told IANS.

The unit was operated at a lower capacity due to the need to complete the vibration adjustment of the new stator.

“This is a common world practice for this type of electrical machines,” he added.

According to the official, the first unit is at the end of its fourth fuel campaign which is due at the end of this month. The unit is planned to be stopped for the next scheduled preventive maintenance.

In order to avoid simultaneous shutdown of both the power generating units, the managements of Indian and Russian companies decided for a short-term shutdown of Unit 2 during May.

In pursuant of that decision and in connection with the partial relaxation of the Covid-19 restrictive measures, a chartered flight with specialists of turbine manufacturer Power Machines was dispatched from Russia in a timely manner, the official had said.

Rahul Gandhi Ashish Jha

New Delhi, May 27 : Congress leader Rahul Gandhi in his series of talks on Covid-19 pandemic interacted with Professor Ashish Jha of Harvard University who said that “lockdown is not a goal” but a time to separate infected persons from non-infected ones, when you can’t test aggressively. He said the lockdown has psychological impact too on the people.

“Lockdown buys you time, but lockdown is not the goal unto itself. You can use that time to prepare a really fabulous testing, tracing, isolation infrastructure. You want to use that time to communicate with people,” said Jha.

The Harvard Professor says that vigorous testing, tracing and isolation is helpful, “but if you can’t do that, then you have to lock everything down. Can you slow down the virus from a lockdown? Of course you can. But it has very substantial economic repercussions,” he said.

While Ashish Jha said that the reason to do the lockdown is that you are trying to slowdown the spread of the virus, as the virus is a new one. The humanity had not seen this virus before. That means all of us are suspects. All of us are susceptible population. Left unchecked, the virus will grow exponentially, he said.

“And the way to stop it is to take infected people and separate them from un-infected ones,” advocated Jha.

The Harvard Professor said that life will be very different when lockdown ends.

“This is not about going back to what life was like last May or June. That life over the next 6-12-18 months is going to look very different. And its really is about planning all of that out. So it’s not just communication, but really thinking through, what will public transportation look like? Who will go back to work. What will schools do. There is a lot of work you want to be doing during the lockdown,” he said.
