New Delhi: The Union cabinet chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday gave its approval to a proposal to form an expert group under the chairmanship of Niti Aayog vice chairperson Arvind Panagariya to classify caste names returned in the Socio-Economic and Caste Census, 2011 (SECC).

The enumeration under the SECC has thrown up about 46 lakh caste/sub-caste/synonyms/ surnames/clan/gotra names and the expert group has been assigned to classify this data, an official release said.


The expert group will be serviced by the ministries of social justice and empowerment as well as tribal welfare, which will nominate other members to the group.

The central government decided to collect data on castes through the SECC in May 2011 which was conducted by respective state governments.

The field survey on economic data has since been completed and the socio-economic data relating to rural areas has been released by the ministry of rural development.

The work on urban data is under progress.

Smart living is also about smart breathing.

By Himanshu Agarwal

While smart homes are typically about connected and automated devices and appliances, making it a super convenient and comfortable living experience for residents, there is one connection that we often seem to miss when we speak of smart homes -- the inextricable connection with the indoor home environment.

After all, smart living is also about smart breathing. Unless we breathe clean and pure air even within our homes, smart living remains an incomplete aspiration. Therefore, as we pivot big time to a modern lifestyle with nearly 24/7 gadgets, utilities, and network dependency within our homes, a sense of balance with respect to the indoor ambiance must also be attained. And this balance necessarily means breathing pristine, unadulterated pure air even at homes.

Don't forget we breathe 24/7 even when living in smart homes


Of course, in this time and age when we are actively using some smart device or the other within the premises of our smart homes most of the time, the point that we are also breathing 24/7 need not be as labored. However, the question is: whether the quality of the air that we are breathing indoors is commensurate with the aspiration for this so-called quality of life and experience of living in high-class homes. In other words, even as we think we are living the 'high life' using all the fancy gadgets and increasing convenience in life, unless we breathe the right air, the desire and dream of quality living will not find true meaning.
