    After elephant dung now cow dung can be converted into  paper

    The Sunderbans in West Bengal are set to get electricity generated from cow dung. This Ganesh Chaturthi, many families across India brought home idols made from cow dung. Punjab went a step further and used it to deliver piped biogas to various houses in a village. These instances are an apt example of how cow dung was utilised as a resource, rather than a waste product. Taking a cue from the states mentioned above, a handmade paper institute in Rajasthan also decided to join the bandwagon.

    The Kumarappa National Handmade Paper Institute (KNHPI) mixed cow dung with rag paper and made handmade paper. Not only does this utilise waste into making something beneficial, but the process also generates income for farmers and gives employment opportunity to several workers.

    Otaram Devasi, the minister of Gopalan department in Rajasthan, told, “One gaushala has started making paper in Jalore. Our department always encourages gaushalas to contribute to the state economy through various cow produce.”

    The kind of intimacy experienced while writing by hand is amiss in a typewriter or a laptop, says celebrated author Ruskin Bond, who also believes that the good-old style is me

    The kind of intimacy experienced while writing by hand is amiss in a typewriter or a laptop, says celebrated author Ruskin Bond, who also believes that the goodold style is mentally satisfying. One of India’s most-loved and revered authors, Bond, who turned 84 yesterday, still churning out thousands of words even before breakfast every day.

    In a new book “Stumbling Through Life”, the writer also reveals why he is enamoured by the ballpoint pen instead of a fountain pen, which found favour with legends such as Charles Dickens, Rudyard Kipling, Rabindranath Tagore and Munshi Premchand. Bond says over the many, many years he has done most of his writing by hand and only occasionally resorted to a typewriter. He recalls that as a boy he even took lessons for shorthand and typing but soon these forms of writing turned obsolete.
