Seeking rollback of increase in diesel price by 56 paise per litre, Jayalalithaa in a statement here said if the price of essential commodities needed to be regulated, diesel price should be brought under control.
I request Prime Minister s personal intervention in the policy adopted on the fixation of fuel prices and to put a full stop for the policy introduced by previous UPA government allowing OMCs to increase the price of diesel every month, she said. There is a feeling among people that despite change in the government at the Centre, there was no change in the policy adopted on fuel prices, she said, adding, hike in diesel price would lead to increase in cost of essential commodities.

They grow up fast and before one can realise and show attention they end up on the wrong path. Likewise, Priyanka Sangi, parent of a college-going son, says, We never paid attention while my son grew up.
As soon as he stepped into college, we came to know about his hostile behaviour. It was difficult to contain and we took him to a counsellor to direct his energy in the right way. Speaking about this, a city-based psychologist S Saravanan, says, Parents need to be friendly with their wards as many are living in nuclear families.
In the modern family, children feel isolated and are in need of a companion and certainly not a disciplinarian. Parents have changed for good as children are growing up in a lonely environment.

Abstract The role of telecommunications in disaster reduction is critical in order to improve the timely flow of crucial information needed for appropriate assistance to be delivered before, during and after the disaster.
The breakdown of essential communications is one of the most widely shared characteristics of all disasters. The collapse of communications infrastructure, due to the collapse of antennas, buildings, power etc is the usual effect of disaster.
A mobile ad hoc network is formed dynamically by an autonomous system of mobile nodes that are connected via wireless links without using the existing network infrastructure or centralized administration.
The ease of deployment and infrastructure less nature of the network are some of reasons why MANET is recommended in disaster area. One solution to this problem is the use of wireless communication systems. Introduction Disasters are of varying intensity and occurrence ranging from less frequent like earthquake, volcanic eruption to more frequent like floods, fire, drought, cyclones, landslides besides industrial reaction and epidemics.
When disaster strikes, communication link are often disrupted, yet for disaster relief workers, these links are essential in order to answer critical questions as to how many people have been injured or died, where the injured are located and the extent of the medical help needed.
In disaster and emergency situations, communications can save lives. Whether partial or complete, the failure of communications infrastructure leads to preventable loss of life and damage to property, by causing delays and errors in emergency response and disaster relief efforts Townsend and Moss, Yet despite the increasing reliability and resiliency of modern communications networks to physical damage, the risk associated with communications failures remains serious because of growing dependence upon these tools in emergency In wireless networking, there are two main architectures: infrastructure networks and mobile ad hoc networks MANETs.
Infrastructure networks include cellular networks and wireless local area networks. Although users can handover between base stations or access points and roam among different networks, their mobility is limited within the coverage areas of the base stations or access points. This is illustrated in figure. Ad hoc networks on the other hand, exclude the use of a wired infrastructure.
Ad hoc networks can extend communication beyond the limit of infrastructure-based networks. These characteristics make MANET suitable for mission-critical applications, such as disaster recovery, crowd control, search and rescue and automated battlefield communications. In a general mobile network which consists of wireless access networks and interconnecting backbone networks, the mobile terminals are connected to the base stations access points by wireless access networks, and the base stations are connected to the wired backbone networks Woerner, and Howlader, There are drawbacks to these systems when large-scale disasters, such as earthquakes, occur.
Communications may be impossible if the base stations or other elements of the infrastructure comprising these networks are damaged by disasters. Even if the infrastructure is not damaged, spikes in traffic and congestion may render communication virtually impossible. It is very important and necessary that communication networks be restored in such areas.
Repairing the infrastructure could be time wasting, expensive and lead to unnecessary loss of lives and property. The use of Mobile ad hoc network in such disaster areas becomes imperative. The ease and speed of deployment, cost effectiveness of setting up a MANET, its outstanding terminal portability and mobility makes mobile ad hoc network of great use in disaster areas Bauer et al, Communication and sharing of information in emergencies are important and should not be taking lightly as lives could be either lost or saved depending on the actions taken.
MANET can enable communication among temporarily assembled user terminals without relying on the conventional communication infrastructure. Therefore, it is important to configure a communication network that offers sufficient QoS after a catastrophic disaster using an ad hoc network to help protect people.
We therefore present an overview of Mobile Ad hoc Network MANET , its characteristics and features that render it highly useful and reliable in disaster areas. Figure 1: Infrastructure wireless network.
In other words, besides the basic processing ability as a host, the mobile nodes can also perform switching functions as a router. Distributed operation: The control and management of the network is distributed among the terminals since there is no access point or base station for the central control of the network operations.
Chakrabarti and Mishra, The nodes involved in a MANET should collaborate amongst themselves and each node acts as a relay as needed, to implement functions e. Ease of deployment: MANET does not depend on any established infrastructure or centralized administration. Each node operates in distributed peer-to-peer mode, acts as an independent router and generates independent data.
