Dear friend,

This month newsletter brings you an excerpt from our newly published book on renewable energy. It shows graphically the renewable energy scenario and also the way we can tackle the energy problem through innovative and creative solutions.  Apart from the renewable energy statistics of the nation we also present in the excerpt decentralized energy solutions like Bio-methanation plant and also wind energy systems. In the 'Green Rameshwaram' project both are relevant. The book has been published as part of the 'Green Rameshwaram' project and sponsored by UNICEF's 'Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WaSH) initiative.  In fact 11 books have been published by VK-nardep under the WaSH initiative of UNICEF under the Green Rameshwaram project and our newsletter will introduce them all one by one.

Meanwhile under the UNICEF initiative we have been conducting street plays to sensitize the public as well as the pilgrims about the need for 'Green Rameshwaram'.  Read about the local youths conducting street plays to take the message of green and clean Rameshwaram to the public. They are not professionals but they are fired with zeal and determination and are doing a wonderful job of disseminating the messages of tree planting to cleaning the beaches of Rameshwaram.
