Swiss Economic Affairs Minister, Johann N. Schneider Ammann, said on Friday that Switzerland is always in support of India’s fight against black money.

The minister said that the issues of black money will be discussed in the second session of the parliament.

“Switzerland has decided to follow international standards, including those framed by Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), in sharing information and providing assistance to foreign countries probing such cases, but we have to ask our Parliament to make changes in our laws,” he said at a select media briefing.

Ammann is on a three-day tour to India and is scheduled to meet India’s Finance Minister Arun Jaitley to discuss the issue.

To consider providing “administrative assistance” to foreign countries, which would include India, in such cases, a proposal would be moved in the Swiss Parliament in the second half of this year, said Ammann in New Delhi on Friday.

On a question regarding black money law, Ammann said that it is too early to talk about that as the procedures and the law itself first need to be understood.

However, Ammann assured that the Swiss Government will provide every assistance to India and both the governments will work together to bring back black money to India.

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.
