Impossible is nothing…

In the aftermath of the nuclear crisis, Japanese citizens have cooperated to help save electricity. In the process, they’ve reduced energy usage by 15% in Tokyo, one of the world’s most electric cities which is also one of most densely populated metros in the world.

It’s a concerted effort between the government , media , organizations and citizens. Massive in scale , complex to execute. Seemingly impossible to pull off. Yet , it has been done.

Japanese are bringing to the conservation drive a characteristic combination of national fervor, endurance, sloganeering, technology and social coercion. Read about it here.

One wonders if this is possible in other parts of the world ? Are citizens elsewhere equally willing to put collective well being over their individual comfort ?

In their own characteristic way Japanese citizens have shown that while no one can do everything. Every one can do a LOT.

    Somehow I am not favourably disposed to mail order service. My esperience has been very bad. If you have any outlet selling your products in MUMBAI, INDIA, I would like to go there and see things for myself, including price. Then if I find something attractive, I would go for it.
