Do you feel like banging your head after a while at your office? Do you get violent thoughts or do you really want to blast at someone? Holding your breath and meditating is not the only way out.

If you think you have done the calculations without any mistake, and got over one of your weaknesses, give yourself a reward as simple as your favorite chocolate. That would make you happy. Do not crib about your mistakes, grow from it.

Another thing you can do is thinking before throwing your words. One usually ends up becoming rude and harsh. Remember, everyone works equally as much as you do. If you face any kind of harsh treatment from your colleague, returning them the harshness back would only spoil your relations. That does not mean that you repress speaking up even when needed, but handle the situation calmly and peacefully. Be diplomatic while conveying your message.

There has been a sharp decline in groundwater levels in several parts of Delhi, West Uttar Pradesh, Haryana and Rajasthan over the years, the government said.

According to the data released, which is part of country's f irst ever aquif er at las, Himachal Pradesh has the best groundwater level as water exploited is quickly recharged. The atlas, first ever compliation of aquifer systems in India, says that within the national capital, South-West Delhi is the worst af fected by depleting groundwater levels. The construction around Aravail Hills has created a situation which has disturbed the groundwater recharge system. said centeral Ground Water Board Chairman Mr. ABC. He said overexploitation due to population concentration has led to depletion of levels and the recharge process is slow due to the type of soil in the region. He also said that hard rock areas of South India were also severely affected.

But the recharge process is faster in rocky areas. Good rains over five to seven year period can bring back water in aquifers. The atlas has been prepared on 1:250000 grid map scale.

It would be better if the scale is 1:10000 so that every village in the country is covered. Then it will help the farmers and the common man to understand the water level in their area. Water Resources Minister Mr. XYZ said.

The atlas covers 14 principal aquifers and 42 major aquifers. On the 1:10000, It can cover over 1000 aquifers. But the project will take another seven years. Besides the all-India atlas, Mr. XYZ also released state atlas of Himachal Pradesh,Chhattisgarh, Tamil Nadu-Pudducherry, Kerala, Karnataka and Meghalaya.
