I just saw my own blog-post in this site of August 2011. A link from Times of India dated 7th August 2011, mentioned in the post, is http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/city/kolkata-/Didi-announces-new-museum-in-memory-of-Tagore/articleshow/9510958.cms (the link works !). Today, it has been decided that the Rabindra Tirtha will be inaugurated on 7th August 2012 (22-se Shrabon). We are expecting Hon'ble Chief Minister to inaugurate. Hectic last-minute preparations are going on: there is still a race against time. I never knew there were so many tiny things to do - the audio system of the auditorium, the Central AC of the audio-visual room, the placement of the statue, the setting up of the exhibition hall, the landscaping, the pavers, the paint of the pool railing, the external wall paint etc. All of us are trying to put in their best efforts. Tomorrow I'll take a focussed meeting.

In the morning, I discussed about setting up of a park for the elderly. In Delhi and Mumbai these are known as Nana-Nani Parks. Some of these are running very well: I read a recent report how NGOs and ULBs are running these...I've asked our PMU to find out more details.

SE PHE told me if we could think of a low-cost machine that can convert plastic bottles into oil, it's called motor oil. This can reduce the menace of plastic bottles clogging drains. I have aasked for further details.
