Efficient Water Management: A Key to Building Smart Cities! #GrundfosIndia

September, 2017: The
Smart Cities campaign has been high on India’s agenda as this is perceived as
the step towards building a sustainable and developed country. A smart city
needs to have an environment that is suitable to accommodate the requirements
of the progressive urban population such as transportation, connectivity,
uninterrupted power and water & wastewater management to name a few.
According to Indian Ministry of Urban
Development
, 60% of India’s population will live in cities by 2050. This means
that there will be stress on our cities to deliver more services with limited
resources. With India’s rapid urbanization and growing population, water demand
has already exceeded the supply. A smart city will need to ensure 24*7
uninterrupted supply of water for its development, which may not be possible if
the current scenario persists. Therefore, it is very important to take measures
to secure water through efficient water management systems.
Grundfos India, one of the leading
pump manufacturers in India, is therefore promoting the importance of efficient
water management systems in building smart cities at the ‘3rd Water
Innovation Summit 2017’
organized by Confederation of Indian Industry (CII). 

“Smart Water Management: A Key Building Block
of the Smart Cities & Villages of the Future” is the theme of this
two-day summit taking place on September 4 and 5, 2017 in New Delhi. Grundfos
India
is the gold sponsor of this Summit.
Intelligent water management systems are critical to making Smart Cities
successful. According to a WRG report, there are situations in which 40% or
more of the water that is pumped into a distribution grid is lost before it
ever reaches the consumer in cities across the world. The report goes on to
state that many cities have also found that if they simply reduce water
pressure in the grid, they also reduce leakage and minimize wear and tear on
aging pipes. Such issues can be addressed by ‘smart’ technologies such as Grundfos’ Demand Driven Distribution pressure control system, which can
save both water and money by delivering optimal water pressure at any given
time. This system can automatically monitor grid use patterns with remote
sensors and adjust the water pressure accordingly using a Grundfos software
algorithm
. It reduces both water and electricity consumption by up to 20%, and
water pipes will last longer because they are less likely to crack. The return
on investment is short and in some cases down to a year.
Commenting on smart water management
solutions for Smart Cities, Gaurav
Mathur, Head – Business Development (Building Services) at Grundfos Pumps India
Pvt. Ltd
said, “Smart water management is definitely the key building block
of the Smart Cities of the future. Therefore, it is critical to invest in the
right solutions and technologies. We need water management systems that are
sustainable, reliable, energy efficient and above all intelligent”.

the leads
,
this complete family entertainer will premiere on 28th August, 2017 at 9 p.m.
only on STAR BHARAT
September  2017, Mumbai

Playing
by the rules sometimes do not get us desired result, but breaking rules does.
Victory has no rules but the act of winning at any cost does. The newly
launched channel Star Bharat attempts to demystify this reality with a new show
‘SaamDaam Dand Bhed’ starting August 28, 2017, every Monday-Friday at 9 PM. SaamDaam
Dand Bhed
produced by Shakuntalam Telefilms Pvt. Ltd. is an exceptional story
of one such young man called Vijay Namdhari who came from nothing and achieved
everything. He rose from ashes like a phoenix from young zealous family
man to leader of politician gamesmanship.
Based
in a fictitious town in India, ‘SaamDaam Dand Bhed’ will portray the journey of
a kind soul Vijay Namdhari with a dark reality. Vijay is a classic example of
dauntless, nonchalant youth of today who doesn’t know what he wants from life. He decides to
enter the world of real politics for the sake of his family, picks up mantle of
his dead brother, mends his ways and in no time becomes leader of the country.
True to the name of the show, Vijay uses four ways to get his work done – ‘Saam’–
Humble request, ‘Daam’ – Bribe to get it done if first fails, ‘Dand’ – Threaten
and ‘Bhed’ – Punishment.
The show talks about the importance of family bond,
the unquestioned rule of one political leader in the country’s heartland,
besides the vicious and horrifying games some people play to attain power. The
politics will test love, family, friendship.
The
Producer Shyamasis Bhattacharya said “The
concept of ‘SaamDaam Dand Bhed’ resonates with every Indian dwelling, who can
do to any extent give up the pleasures of life for their family. The show will
trace the journey of an underdog, who came from nothing and achieved
everything. My team have been working very hard and we are hopeful that the
show will hit the right note with the audience”
The
show brings together an ensemble cast in the lead roles like Sonal Vengurlekar
as Mandira
opposite Bhanu Uday who essays the role of Vijay. Akshay Anand will
return to television as Bhanu Uday’s Brother. Also, Greesh Sahdev as Pankaj
Chaudhary
as the antagonist on the show.
Watch the exceptional
Journey of Vijay Namdhari on ‘SaamDaam Dand Bhed’, Monday to Friday at
9 p.m. only on Star
Bharat.

A Mukhiya Like None Other Age old traditions get shaken up by an unconventional political candidate in STAR BHARAT’s – ‘Nimki Mukhiya’

Sanskari,
righteous, sacrificing Hindi serial female protagonists have always been the
focal point of most Indian TV shows. However, for the first time Star Bharat brings a female character
who is truly one-of-a kind.
Nimki is the
princess of a poor father. She sees the world through rose tinted glasses and
lives in her Bollywood inspired day dreams. Despite the drudgeries of the
mundane village life, she is whimsical and full of live. Nimki is marriage
obsessed, slightly neurotic, highly opinionated and most importantly far
removed from politics. But, by a chance of faith and a new government
regulation she finds herself elected as the first female mukhiya of her village.
And, this outlandish yet gregarious girl soon
finds herself amidst conspiracies far beyond her understanding. While various
individuals flock with the plans to manipulate her, Nimki’s eccentricities leave
them baffled.
This new show on STAR BHARAT,
a
channel that showcases inspirational stories about journeys of strong and
fearless characters who rise for the collective, draws inspiration from
the life and times of rural India’s political state but in a never seen before fresh
and light manner. It introduces a quirky protagonist, who is a misfit in the
power hungry world of politics but in her own bumbling way manages to bring
about a better, new normal.
Produced by Qissago the show highlights the journey of Nimki who breaks
stereotypes and in her bumbling way challenges the status quo. To ensure that
the essence of Bihar and the village
where the show is plotted is kept intact, the makers have gone in-depth into
the nuances of characters, the body language, the costumes and the dialect. The
hinterland audiences will feel at home with the show as it packs a punch by
being closest to reality.
Lead actor Indraneil
Sengupta
aces his character and debutant Bhumika Gurung marks a very promising debut.

The acclaimed TV writer Zaman Habib on
his debut as a producer said
, “The concept of Nimki Mukhiya is unusual and different
from what we have seen on television so far. This show will resonate with every
Indian as it has a straight connect with the heartland where absolute autocracy
and male dominancy continues. Our character Nimki is the USP of the show who is a complete entertainment package. Nimki is brave
yet Naïve, entrepreneurial yet lazy, dramatic yet loving. The show traces the
journey of this unconventional hero who brings a twist to the established
political scenario of Bihar.”
While
political change is the need of the hour. For resurgence to happen – traditions
need to be challenged. But can deep sated societal problems be successfully
tackled by an unorthodox hero? Would you have supported a slightly out of box
mukhiya?

To show your support for Nimki, tune in
to Star Bharat on Monday to Friday at 8:30 p.m.
