Photo journal – Ria

This week I continued with my film along with work on my annotated bibliography. Most of the information is the same from my first semester independent project but there are many pictures I would need to cite.

Last Research-Ria

Rather than complete a film on my research this semester, I am rather, going to complete a large annotated bibliography with all of my research. The annotations will include what helped me and also what information I found to be most intriguing and crucial. This semester I am glad I changed my focus. I think I was able to gain a better understanding of the conflict of India/Pakistan by hearing two perspectives rather than just plain fact. While I needed facts in my research, the bias gave me new angles that were much more personal. Much of the information I received from reading about the Partition I found to be similar to Israel/ Palestine. There are continuing wars and fights breaking out even years after the conflict first began. Towards the end of the semester I researched more regarding Kashmir.

Our estate has been in our family for many generations and each child in the Mahendra family gets a plot of land in time.

Bio-Gas in India: Testing this River Idea – Purification Oasis Pools

I’m sending tendrils into this river cleaning idea. This week held essentially two major breakthroughs – and one big question of timing. I have to cover a lot of ground as I rework this project, but I do believe with a smaller, better defined goal, I may be able to achieve this. W Continue reading

Bio-gas in India: Returning to the Drawing Board? Soon to be Clean the Ganges?

I have reached a point in my independent project which I always knew was a possibility, but which I was not necessarily expecting. Many business ideas are scrapped, many projects abruptly change course, many projects must be brought back to the drawing board. After a conversation with my mentor it is dawning on me that this is such a project. Continue reading
