    I still remember the day way back in 1980-81 when I was President of Junior Chamber and we had organised a big rally for awareness in the general public on Energy saving and we kept a slogan ‘SAVE ENERGY OR PERISH’. We got lots of feedback from industries.

    Now in the present scenario, it is very important and every one is concerned about energy saving. This energy saving is not only on consumable power but it is very much a relative term to labour involved in maufacturing activity. In India, labour is very cheap; it does not mean that a U.S.A. company can’t compete in International Market.

    It is very much necessary to all of us to think and review the situation very deeply. I think let developing countries support by way of their resources to undeveloped countries and that way both will be benefited.
