b) natural recharge of ground water,
c) economical and eco-friendly method.

On an average, a household uses 300-500 litres of water in the kitchen everyday. This kitchen waste water is tapped before it enters the sewage network. The water is then cleaned in two stages and stored in a tank from where it is pumped out to sprinklers.

Lohri celebrated in Pragati Apartments

Residents of Pragati Apartments celebrated Lohri on 13.01.2011 in Central Park. The celebration was organized by PARWA EC.

is celebrated every year on 13th of January. It is a festival to worship fire. Lohri Festival is celebrated with great pomp in North India. At this time Earth starts moving towards the sun marking the auspicious period of Uttarayan. First Lohri is very important for the newly wed and the new born babies as it marks fertility. At night, people gather around the bonfire and throw til, puffed rice & popcorns into the flames of the bonfire. Prayers are offered to the bonfire seeking abundance & prosperity. People make merry by dancing & singing traditional folk songs.

Lohri celebrations are marked by traditional songs and dances. People dress up nicely on the long-awaited bonfire festival. Lohri calls for family get-togethers and lavish dinners with sarson ka saag & makki ki roti. The day ends with prayers for a good harvest.

Time seems to have changed in Pragati Apartments. In the Lohri here, dancing & singing traditional folk songs was missing. People no doubt threw popcorns, moongfali and rewri in the fire. No prayers were offered to the bonfire seeking abundance & prosperity. Any way it was an entertaining evening with many people around and cold air and soothing warmth of bonefire. Many residents distributed rewari, moongfali and popcorns as prasad.

Bi-annual PARWA GB Meeting

Bi-annual General Body meeting of Pragati Apartments Welfare Association (PARWA) was held on 09.01.2011 in Central Park. It was almost like other GB meetings, no quoram at 1000 AM (only six members), meeting started at 1030 AM with 12 members, same routine agenda, Secretary read the report in a mechanical manner, no new issues, no proactive plans, self praise, a perfect photocopy of earlier GB meetings. Some members in PARWA EC are real tired, no new ideas, but they do not want to retire. Any way it their choice and no-choice of residents.

PARWA members have been provided a copy of the meeting notice with agenda, Secretary's report and mintes of the meeting. A formaility is over. Members can read these documents at their free time. It they do not read then also it will not make any difference.

There was no discussion on payment for second slot but Secretary has written about a decision on this. Mr Malik has a quality, he will record in the meeting minutes what he wants to record, and for him vice-versa is also true.

Now the next GB meeting will be held after announcement of next election. The floor is with President and Secretary till then.
