How To Choose The Right Water Purifier

With the increase in pollution and depleting resources of pure water, an individual today is pressed to take well-thought decisions when it comes to the health of self and his loved one. One cannot leave to impulse when it comes to picking up the right water purifier. Buying a water purifier is just not Paying for the popular one or the cheapest one. There are a number of factors that are to be considered before making a purchase. The key factor in making a choice is the kind of water received in the area where one stays. Further to this one has to see the technology used in the designing and functioning of the water Purifier. The price and the reviews of the products are also important factors that cannot be ignored. If planning to buy a water filter is on the charts for you then please go through the list of factors that are to be considered.

Water Quality
Water quality is the first and the foremost factor that should impact your buying decision. One needs to be sure of the water quality before one makes a choice. if the water you receive has a high TDS level is hard and saline then the correct option is an RO water purifier. These RO water purifiers are having a semi-permeable membrane capable of removing the micro dissolved salt, metals and impurities.
As of today, there are a number of water purification technologies that the market has to offer. Having the knowledge of various technologies is important to pick the right product. The market today offers products that are based on RO, UV and UF technologies. Below find a list of technologies that are available as an option in the market.
RO Water Purifiers
The Reverse Osmosis Purifiers are the ideal purifiers if you live in an area that offers water that has a high TDS level. These water purifiers are capable of removing impurities of heavy metals, Flouride, Arsenic, and other toxins from water. The only drawback is that they also remove some of the essential minerals from water hence it is imperative that the RO has a TDS controller in it
Gravity-Based Water Purifiers
Gravity-based water purifiers are ideal purifiers if the TDS level in the water is low. They are economic water purifiers and do not require electricity to operate. They can successfully remove bacteria, dust, chlorine, and cysts from the water.
UV Water Purifiers
UV water purifiers are the purifiers that can be effective for purifying tap and municipal corporation water. They basically use a high power UV lamp that disinfects water and remove the contamination. The drawback of these water purifiers are that they fail to remove the dissolved impurities from water.
If you are having a water supply that is high in microbes and contaminants like nitrates, dissolved pesticides, and lead then the correct choice is always a UV based RO purifier. The UV effect irradiates the water and help in killing the bacteria and viruses. This is possible because the UV penetrates the cells of the microbes and destroys the ability to reproduce. The semi-permeable membrane of the RO is capable of removing the dead microbes and the contaminants of the water thus making it fit for human consumption.
Storage Capacity
Storage capacity is one of the important factors that one needs to keep in mind before making a decision. If one lives in an area that has frequent power cuts one has to buy a filter with higher storage capacity. The automated system of the purifier starts the purification once the level falls down to the minimal level.
The product Certifications is a critical factor that one needs to check in water purifier before one makes a decision to purchase. Certification ensures that the brand offering are authentic and trustworthy. Live pure has been honored with some of the top quality certifications.
Maintenance and After Sales Services

Maintenance and After Sales services are the important factors that cannot be ignored before making a purchase. A water purifier that is high and frequent in maintenance is never the right choice.

Why mosquito repellent is a necessity ?

Why mosquito repellent is a necessity ?

Why mosquito repellent is a necessity?

Mosquitoes have bedevilled humans for centuries, spreading disease and death to millions. They are the primary vectors for major human diseases such as yellow fever, malaria, and dengue fever.
The World Health Organization, reports that more than 50 percent of the world’s population is presently at risk from mosquito-borne diseases. Nearly 700 million people get a mosquito-borne illness each year resulting in greater than one million deaths.
Diseases transmitted by mosquitoes include malaria, dengue, West Nile virus, chikungunyayellow fever, filariasis, tularemia, dirofilariasisJapanese encephalitisSaint Louis encephalitis, Western equine encephalitis, Eastern equine encephalitis, Venezuelan equine encephalitis, La Crosse encephalitis, and Zika fever.
When it comes to mosquito-borne diseases, the world’s attention has been fixated on Zika for the past year. But other diseases like malaria or dengue still threaten more people.This is particularly true in India, a country with a population of 1.2 billion, where the government is struggling to get a handle on the problem — though there are signs of hope.To understand the stakes, look no further than the capital, New Delhi, where this summer an outbreak of chikungunya affected thousands with fever and joint pain. This was soon followed by the seasonal dengue epidemic, a more severe virus that can be fatal.
The Indian market for various repellants is in the range of over Rs 4000 crore. With increasing environmental degradation leading to the creation of mosquito breeding grounds, demand is set to increase further, say experts. Using a repellent is one of the best ways to keep mosquitoes away from yourself and your family. Today market offers a wide array of options.

From mosquito coils to cockroach sprays to electric swatters, India's insect repellent market clocks Rs 4,400 crore in retail sales a year, according to a report by Euromonitor. Coils are the top-selling repellents with a 50% market share, though sprays are also gaining in popularity. Godrej Consumer Products with brands such as Good Knight and Hit controls nearly half the market and is gradually eating into shares of rivals such as SC Johnson, Reckitt Benckiser and Jyothy Labs. The country's home insecticide market is forecast to reach Rs 5,200 crore by 2020.

Questionnaire with Abha Iyengar

So, for this month featuring  author is "Abha Iyengar"

Can you tell us a little about yourself? Your profession and your hobbies.

I am a poet, author, editor, translator and a British Council certified creative writing mentor. I love to travel and take photographs on the go.

Questionnaire with Abha Iyengar 

1.     How did you first get involved in with writing? Are you an imaginative person?

I read a lot, a habit I formed in early childhood. I always carried a book with me to read wherever I went. I find it easy to express myself through writing. I began to take writing seriously as a profession in 2001.

2.     What do you find most challenging about your writing?

I have to write very fast to put what I am thinking onto the page. Otherwise, the thought or idea gets lost, and/or I lose interest in it.

3.     What do you do when you are not writing?

The external world calls upon my time when I am not immersed in writing. Friends and family and travel, these are of importance after my writing.

4.     Where do you see yourself in the next 6 months, and 5 years down the road?

I go with the flow. However, yes, I do want to send many more books out into the world and to my readers.

5.     How do you keep coming up with material/content for your story?

The ideas are all around. I just have to tap on something that affects or moves me. I often work with prompts. They are like magic for me. Ideas flow once I begin to write.

6.     Any specific tips you have for new writers who want to make it big in the world of published books?

Just follow your passion for writing and find your unique voice. Don’t look for the easy way out. Writing is hard work.

7.     What’s the best thing a writer can give to her readers?

A good writer shares her soul with her readers. What else is then left?

8.     A lot of people are interested in writing for the money earning potential. What are some tips for people interesting in making money from writing? What are some realistic expectations in regards to what can be made?

A truly realistic picture is this. Except for the big names who have arrived, very few writers make money. If they wish to make money, they have to pursue not only writing but also the marketing of their work with extraordinary zeal.

9.     What motivates you most in life?

I am a seeker. I constantly want to know and learn. That is my prime motivation. I am also driven to create awareness among women for the need to be self-reliant and strong; to speak their truths.

10.  The majority of the readers tend to take sides due to religion and such other considerations.

Viewpoints will be subjective. But do not force your words and values down another’s throat. Be democratic.

11.   What is the story behind the name of your book?

I have written several books, which include a poetry collection, flash fiction collection, novels, and a short story collection. I am now co-editing an anthology titled ‘The Other’. This is a collection of stories by 33 writers. There are some established as well as fresh, vibrant voices in this anthology to be launched by the end of the year.

12.  What are your views on increasing plagiarism?

There can be no two views on this. Plagiarism is a crime. However, while anyone can steal material wealth, a writer’s voice will always belong to her.
