Women's Reservation

As we all know, March 8 is International Women's Day. On that day our central govt. is once again seeking consensus for passing the  bill that seeks 33 percent reservation for women in legislative bodies. This will be introduced in the Rajya Sabha on Monday, March 8.
It will be interesting for all to see whether this will be passed this time!

Some of our legislators are even now live in a world which is so old and rude, so to say. That is why the legislation has been pending for over 13 years -- it was first brought to parliament in 1996 by the H.D. Deve Gowda government. 
Right now the positive note is that the bill is getting support by major parties like the Bharatiya Janata Party and the Left. But it is being opposed by the Samajwadi Party, the Rashtriya Janata Dal and the Janata Dal-United most of which are representing the under developed states. 
For the bill to be passed, it has to be supported by two-thirds of those present and voting. This figure should also be at least 50 percent of the total number of MPs.
Another thing to note is that what this bill is going to give our women. Do they really get benefited from this? Or they will remain as mere scapegoats like another Rabri!!! After all this is Indian politics. Rules will be there, ‘real rules’ would be something else. Anyway this is a small step. Something is better than nothing!!!

Flipping Ship

Scare not! The ship is not sinking!! It is just flipping its position!!!
This is FLIPresearch vessel (Floating Instrument Platform), the only ship in the world having the ability to flip from a horizontal position to a vertical position while at sea. The FLIP ship is designed to study wave height, acoustic signals, water temperature and density, and for the collection of meteorological data.
FLIP is 108 meters long and weighs 700 long tons. During the flip, the crew stand on the outside decks. Scientists and crewmembers literally walk up the walls to stay upright. Suddenly, the aft side of the barge becomes its floor. That makes for some ingenious engineering feats in equipping its bridge, galley, crew quarters and scientific laboratory. Even its head, or bathroom, had to be constructed to operate in a vertical and horizontal position.
