This write up explains about the details of process of developing an area or sector of industry. It points out that it is not possible to leave everything to market forces above; due to the stagnation of the past it is necessary to 'pump in' right type of knowledge/skill bases and some amount of initial fund to trigger the development processes. Even the delivery of knowledge bases/skills will require a system and set of professionals and that requires funding with good degree of flexibility. Many other insights and a mathematical equation are given. It will be useful for all those who are sincere about developing an underdeveloped area or to help poor people or to develop a backward sector of industry. The role of govt. grant, funds of philanthropist or Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is described.

We have several hypes such as 'health care for all', 'disease free India', 'accessible health services' etc in addition single disease oriented massive international campaigns. But most of the people of India depend upon nearby private practitioners. A few may access govt. hospital High quality specialty, private sector hospitals or nursing homes are high budget system often available (almost exclusively ?!) to big corporate employees or high level govt. employees or otherwise rich persons. Noting that about 94% of those employed in India are not in organised, only 6% of India are in organised sector, some form regular medicare is available only to a very few Indians.
A system is working in Uttaranchal very effectively so far servicing more than 50,000 people.
While space, ocean, and many land areas have been studied well all over the world. Also many studies are going on sustainable earth, bio-diversity etc. Increasing well being of the human beings, their increasing longevity and increasing world population, place a huge demand on soil, the plants, birds and animals - virtually converting soil into a 'mass producing factory' year round. Even demands for organic food, organic farming etc will place increasing demands on soil. As also various forms of waste management, water management, water recycling etc.
Many do not even think that these place a huge demands on the soil underground. Most researches are confirmed up to about one foot. Whereas much of the activities of insects, oxygen, methane, microbes, viruses, many other living beings, rats, snakes, frogs etc live there. There are also so many chemical, physical, bilogical, hydrological etc activities taking place there. They also have a great role in shaping human destiny - ecology, sustainability, health etc. The appeal to researches all over the world to start research work in these areas in a scientific manner.
Also appeal to funding agencies and philanthropist to focus on Under-Soil-Research & Science say going to 200 m to 300 meters. Highly rewarding in terms of knowledge and also crucial for long term sustainability of the earth.
A brief discussion is on global warming, and also about the interconnection of various issues like water, energy saving, material wastage etc. This note limits one aspect of reduction of electric power consumption through a lifestyle change : dispensing with ironing or pressing for clothes. The note also points out to the loss of jobs of those who iron clothes now as their livelihood and suggests an alternative. Also given some ideas of lifestyle changes for those who go to expensive hotels. One main idea is to point out that we all need to learn to change high consumption lifestyle (in addition to find scientific and technological solutions for energy efficiency, water efficiency etc.)
Any takers from world's great designers ?
