What is net-zero target?*

A net-zero target is defined as date by which a country will only emit carbon dioxide or other greenhouse gases that can be absorbed by forests, soil, crops, and developing technologies such as carbon capture technology.

India’s announcement came as a surprise to delegates in Glasgow,

US, UK & Japan have net zero target by 2050; EU by 2060; Saudi Arabia, China & Russia by 2070.

India’s goal towards net-zero emissions

India’s goal to achieve net-zero emissions by 2070 is far-fetched. Thus, to support this goal, four other aggressive pledges were made. These targets are:

50% of power will come from renewables by 2030.

500 GW of installed renewable energy capacity will be reached by 2030.

Reduction in carbon intensity by 45% by 2030.

Reduction in projected total carbon emissions by 1 billion tonnes by 2030

India further seeks to reduce its projected total carbon emissions by 1 billion tonnes by the end of the decade.

How does a Fire cracker Rocket works*

Each rocket is made up of the following parts: a mortar, fuses, propellant powder, a shell, a bursting charge, and a collection of “stars.” The mortar is the outer container, and the fuse is, of course, the piece that you light. When the fuse burns down, the propellant ignites and shoots the firework into the air.

When the fuse, called a fast-acting fuse, is ignited with a flame or a spark, the gunpowder explodes, creating lots of heat and gas that cause a buildup of pressure beneath the shell. Then, when the pressure is great enough, the shell shoots up into the sky. Fireworks!

Diwali is the five-day festival of lights, celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs and Jains across the world. The festival, which coincides with the Hindu New Year, celebrates new beginnings and the triumph of good over evil and light over darkness.

Danteras usually falls eighteen days after Dussehra. On the same night that Hindus celebrate Diwali, Jains celebrate a festival of lights to mark the attainment of moksha by Mahavira, Sikhs celebrate Bandi Chhor Divas and some Buddhists also celebrate Diwali remembering Ashoka’s conversion to Buddhism.

Goddess Lakshmi’s Birthday: On this very Diwali day, Lakshmi is said to have been incarnated from the depth of the bottomless ocean at the time of Sagarmadhan to extract Amrit.
