|Thanks JK and DJ. Yes it is s shame that in this era of super-fast communication, GSI is still shying away;despite the fact that the work done by GSI is incomparable.
This was published in Current Science by two young geologists and caught my attention. It was published by me four years ago. Not only this, out of my 1100 published articles nearly 600 are based on the published work of GSI.
|Congratulations for highlighting GSI work with regard to groundwater arsenic contamination problem in West Bengal and contiguous Bangladesh. GSI work generally remains hidden in its reports or in Scientific Journals, if published. Now, of course, all the work is published in GSI Extended Abstracts. But all these remain off-limits for the common man. It is high time that GSI become publicity savvy through common media. You have been rendering good service in this domain.
I have been closely watching the developments on front of arsenic poisoning of groundwater, but have not come across any work by CGWB, the department entrusted primarily with groundwater field.
|Firstly, congratulations to all the workers from my erstwhile department for the work and finding through honest observation the simplest of methods to reducing the impact of 'arsenic' menace in West Bengal. Also, this information (the work of GSI) needs to be highlighted in global forums, by the Director General in person.
