Review by Topgear.


As such, the Manza is not a book you can easily judge by its cover. Underneath the somewhat unusual sheet metal lies a good suspension and a fantastically frugal motor.

Unfortunately, that motor is worth a hefty premium. At P738,000, the Manza Aura is over P100,000 more expensive than the gasoline model. At this price, the Hyundai Accent CRDi sedan, which is faster and better to drive, becomes a valid option.

Granted, the Accent doesn’t have the same level of safety equipment or amenities as the Manza Aura, but again, Tata has a long way to go before reaching the level of market acceptance that Korean manufacturers enjoy.

Still, if you’re willing to look beyond the brand, there’s a lot to like about the Manza. And it’s not just the fuel economy.

442 Liters Water for One Liter of Coca Cola The Water Crisis Story

Which is the cheapest toilet cleaner?

What is a very crude, cheap and dangerous method of Abortion?

Coca Cola.

And it uses enormous amount of water to produce this unhealthy and dangerous drink.

I am providing authentic details on this and the reply by Coca Cola.

Only way to close it down is to boycott it as only lack of demand would force it down.

Coca cola Water usage.image

Coca Cola depltes water sources.


The Water Foot Print Network has estimated that it takes 442 liters of water to make one liter of Coca-Cola using cane sugar, and 618 liters of water to make one liter of Coca-Cola product using High Fructose Corn Syrup.

These astounding numbers are not factored into the water replenishment announcement, and Coca-Cola’s claims fall flat if they were to be included – as they ought to be. The numbers used for their announcement are about 200 times less than the actual water footprint of Coca-Cola products.

No more pumping of depleted aquifers!

Coca Cola water usage

Coca Cola water resources

One of the continuing challenges being faced by communities across India is that the Coca-Cola company has continued to operate its bottling plants in severely water-stressed areas, as well as propose new plants in water-stressed areas where the communities have very limited access to potable water – a fundamental human right.

Any company that wants to establish itself as a responsible user of water would begin by not operating in water stressed areas, a demand that has been made of Coca-Cola but which the company seems to ignore because it will deprive it of profits and access to markets.

Coca-Cola is in the habit of making tall claims and generating false opinions favorable to its own cause, whether it is on water use or public health, and this announcement on water replenishment is just that. Just last week, the company was exposed for setting up a front group, Global Energy Balance Network, to confuse the science around obesity.

Attempting to confuse and mislead regulators and scientific opinion is not new to Coca-Cola. In 2006, one of Coca-Cola’s lobbyists in India admitted that his job “was to ensure, among other things, that every government or private study accusing the company of environmental harm was challenged by another study.”…

Water Neutrality?

The myth of ‘water neutrality’

The suggestion that the world’s largest beverage company can become “water neutral”, as Coca-Cola has suggested, is impossible and deceptive, as the India Resource Center has pointed out in the past. It is not possible for a company whose primary raw material is water, to have ‘neutral’ impact on water resources.

Such a disingenuous suggestion by the world’s largest beverage company is a disservice to the public, and without admission of the massive impact the company has on water resources, there can be no genuine discourse with Coca-Cola on water management.

The company’s claims of having ‘neutral’ impact on water resources are misleading for two principal reasons.

First, water issues are local in their impact unlike, for example, climate change. When Coca-Cola extracts water from a depleted aquifer in Varanasi or Jaipur, the impacts are borne by the local communities and farmers that depend upon it to meet their water needs.

Replenishing an aquifer hundreds of miles away from the point of extraction, as Coca-Cola has often done to ‘balance’ their water use, has no bearing on the health of the local aquifer which Coca-Cola depletes through its bottling operations, nor the privations suffered by those who depend upon it.

Second, the amount of water used to make Coca-Cola products, referred to as the ‘water footprint’, is much more than the water used in the bottling plants. Cane sugar is a major component of Coca-Cola products in India, and as one of the largest procurers of sugar in India, Coca-Cola is well shy of achieving any balance with the water used the production of its sugar sweetened beverages.’

What is Water Footprint?

The water-footprint concept was coined in 2002 by Arjen Hoekstra, a professor of water management at University of Twente in the Netherlands. Using data from the U.N.’s Food and Agricultural Organization, Mr. Hoekstra and other researchers gauged the water content that went into the making of various products and applied those statistics to people’s consumption patterns to get a rough water footprint for average individuals and nations as a whole.

‘HCCB bottles 65% of the company’s total volume in India. Coca-Cola India supplies concentrate to all bottlers and is responsible for marketing, strategy and research & development.

The company’s brands in India include Coke, Sprite, Minute Maid juices and Kinley water. The formula for Coke is a highly guarded secret. The proposed sale of the bottling business marks a reversal of the strategy at the time of Coca-Cola’s return to India in 1993 after a 17-year absence.

 Misleading investors.

‘Coca-Cola is misleading investors about potential financial and criminal actions against the company in India, according to campaigners.

Last month, a government-appointed committee in the State of Kerala published a report recommending that Coca-Cola pay $48 million for damage caused by its bottling plant in the village of Plachimada.

The committee, which included heads of Kerala’s Agriculture, Groundwater, Health and Pollution Control Departments, said the company unlawfully depleted groundwater, polluted water resources and could face criminal charges on top of a financial penalty.

However, at Coca-Cola’s AGM in Atlanta this week, CEO Muhtar Kent said accusations against the company were ‘unfounded and false.’

‘There have been several scientific studies and litigation on the allegations that Coca-Cola depleted water and contaminated the environment but none, I repeat none, concluded that the Coca-Cola company or any of its bottlers were the cause,’ said Kent.

He also said the call to pay damages was ‘simply a recommendation from a committee’ and that Coca-Cola would ‘rigorously defend any actions that result.’

Forced closure

A spokesperson for Coca-Cola has since said that any government committee or panel reviewing claims ‘should first determine through an established process of law whether any damage was caused to the residents of Palakkad, and second, if such damage was caused, who was responsible’.

The spokesperson continued: ‘It is unfortunate that the committee in Kerala was appointed on the unproven assumption that damage was caused, and that it was caused by Hindustan Coca-Cola Beverages.’

Campaigners say they still believe the company could be forced to pay damages and close some of the 56 bottling plants it operates across India.’

Coca Cola statement on water usage.
‘Our systemwide water efficiency has improved for 13 consecutive years. When we started this journey in 2004, we were using 2.7 liters of water to make 1 liter of product. That means that 1 liter of water is in the product and another 1.7 liters is used in the manufacturing process, mostly for keeping equipment clean. Today, we’re using 1.98 liters of water to make 1 liter of product and we’re working to reduce it to 1.7 liters of water per liter of product (a 25 percent improvement) by 2020. But what does that mean?

In 2015, we used about 300.19 billion liters of water to produce approximately 151.1 billion liters of product (e.g., Coca-Cola, Diet Coke and Coke Zero) that we sold to consumers in more than 200 countries and territories around the world. That means 151.1 billion liters of water goes into our products and to consumers. And we used 149.09 billion liters of water in our manufacturing process to make that 151.1 billion liters of product in our operations.1 So, that’s the definition of water efficiency – how much water it takes to make our product.

Verify Domestic Help Cooks Drivers


Economic prosperity brings in its own problems.


When one’s income goes up, one gets accustomed to things that were not needed earlier.


To keep up this new style of Living one needs more money.


This results in both husband and wife going to work.


This is what has been happening to Indian Middle class now.


Verify Domestic Help Drivers



Imbibed by the western values, the time tested joint family system broke up and the young couple were/are faced with the problem of taking care of the household chores.


As elders in the family are not living at home, and the fact that the office working schedule of the couple differ, the problem gets compounded.


Now the situation is improving by having elders in the Family t least as a measure of security.


Still the problem of household chores remain.


When a child arrives, the work load increases.


The only option is to go for housemaids, Domestic Help/Cooks/Driver.


One needs help in cleaning the utensils, Diswashers are not a hit in India, bathing the baby, changing the diapers, feeding.


About 50 years back this was not an issue.


People were living in small towns where every one knew every body, one could esily find help.


Now it is tough.


One is the salary level of the domestic help.


As an unskilled labor in Construction Business one is offered between Rs 300 to 400 per day, one has to match the salary.


And if you want the Domestic help to stay at your home, one has to pay more.


More serious is the issue of the character of the Domestic help.


One does not know the antecedents, nor has the resources/time to cross check.


In most cases as the need to find a help is urgent one takes any one with only a cursory check, if at all it is carried out.


This is fraught with danger.

Let me recall a real life incident at Chennai a year ago.

A couple, both of them employed, engaged the services of a domestic help to take care of the child of about three years.

The mother used to return home around six thirty pm while the father by 9 pm.

Everything went on fine.

For a while.

The mother noticed that the child was not normal and was not coming to her.

And the child was sleeping or being indifferent when parents were around.

It was not eating properly.

The parents went to a doctor.

He could not find anything wrong with the child and was puzzled.

Then one day the mother returned home around 4 pm instead of 6 .

She found the maid watching TV in the hall, sitting in the sofa.

The child was nowhere around and the maid could not explain the absence the child.

Then by about 4. 30 a man came with the sleeping child, looking for maid.

On interrogation, he explained that he used to take the child by 10 am and return the child by 4 pm.

The child, after being drugged was sent out with a woman carrying the child on her shoulder to beg in the traffic signals.

The domestic help was being paid Rs 200 per day!

A case was filed and it blew the lid of a rackect in using child to beg.

However this continues even now.

The point I am trying to make is that if we do not know the antecedents of the domestic help, we  are exposed  to danger.

The safest procedure is to check the antecedents of the Domestic help by the Police.

Police have been exhorting people in this regard.

However many fail to do this because of urgency and laziness.


And this happens when we employ a driver too, albeit the problem is likely to be of burgling the house or in rare cases of murder for gain.

And elderly people are the potential victims

Now there is an organisation which does the checking.


The organisation does the check ,provide references for Cooks/Maids/domestic Help/Drivers,

Check the site for more information.


  • Police Clearance Check (PCC) Done for all deployed drivers.
  • Complete set of fingerprints, Photographs and other details are maintained in our servers.
  • RTO verification of all Driver licenses to prevent license fraud.
  • Complete background Verification of Individuals with Reference checks are Done.
  • Reference of one/two Previous employers kept in our database”

Front and Back view of Credit Cards..jpg

Tamil On Credit Cards Ramayana On Loans

People used mock at one who borrows money, Pledge things till about forty years ago.

Now possessing a credit card is a status symbol.

Gold Loans.jpg

Gold Loans.

One who does not have it is looked down, even a shopkeeper looks down at you if you say you do not have a credit card!

I have seen people covering their heads before entering a Pawnshop to pledge.

Now we have advertisements exhorting people to avail Gold Loan!

…..The same pathetic situation with the Nations.

We had Argentina earlier,followed by Ireland, now Greece .

Nations have been humiliated.

All because of spending more than Income!

Economists(!) of the Keynesian variety might use any jargon like restructuring of Finances, Packages…….

What essentially has happened the borrower has been ridiculed, his very independence in peril.

Greece is a case in point.

No point in blaming the lender.

He is merely asking his money back

This is because people madly follow the US, by spending more than what they have,on imagined earnings/projected earnings.

US does not have enough God Reserves in Fort Knox to back up its debts.

Read my Posts on this.

No what does the ancient Language Tamil say of Credit, borrowings?

Tamil Peom on Credit.png

Tamil Peom on Credit. by Avvaiyar

Adhigam Selavaanaal
Maanamizhandhu Madhikettu Pona Dhisai
Ellaarkkum Kallanaai Yezhupirappum Theeyanaai
Nallaarkkum Pollaanaam Naadu”

One who spends more that what he earns, ( gets a loan to meet out his expenses), will lose his dignity, lose his mind and will be considered by all as thief in whatever he goes.

He will be a sinner in all his births and will be called bad even by the Good , despite all his other good Characteristics.

What his mental would be, when he faces the creditors?

Kambar, the Great Tamil Poet, in his Ramayana, answers this.

Kambhar on Credit,Kambha Ramayan

Kambhar on Credit,Kambha Ramayana, Tamil.

‘Like a fish that has taken in poison; Like the wax near a hot flame; Like the toad that got caught between the venomous jaws of a snake; When the brave arrows of Lord Rama flew in the war field. Ravana’s feared and panicked as of the victim’s position in the above situations that can be compared to the person in a debt’
