    Quite right mr sar siddapur. The govt is not just giving lip service but also is actively involved in derailing such ventures. Also the Batteries required are of poor quality hence the failures of Electric Vehicles in India.

    Gravity power of earth is powerful, abundant, 24x7 and absolutely free.
    Earth’s rotation and move around the Sun, by carrying huge Oceans and Continents is a real proof of its (earth’s) powerful gravity power and encouragement.

    It is possible that millions of tons of weight of people and goods (materials) on wheels can be rolled with the gravity power of earth, with a minimum fuel or other energy to regulate, control and change the direction of move.

    There are many draw backs in solar power system except solar water heater.Scientist should solve those draw backs.Many years ago I saw a programme in BBC tv that three wheeler(auto rikshw)was run by solar power in Mumbai.Where is it now.? What about the electrical cars and scooters ? Why these are not popular? Is there any lobby working behind to stop the use of solar and electricity?

    The govt. seems to be on the back foot on REnewable Energy projects. Selco should offer information on the Price factors if mini projects are to come up in the state. I for one have all basic infrastructure for a small project which can power up at least 15 homes!!!!

    Solar is a non-exhaustible energy and its use needs to be encouraged. This will make us independent users and less burden on state.

    Good move by Yakshagana Kalangana. Hope students who benefited from this provision will take advantage of it and excel in their studies.
