Dr Eilliam Edward Deming ( 1900?- 1993 ) was a Quality Guru par excellence. After him the highest Quality Award “Deming Application Prize) was instituted by Japan.

I have written a series of 10 articles about the teachings, and the culture on good values this Quality Guru has inculcated, published in Quality World. The series is titled as “D(R)E(A)MING FOR A QUALITY WORLD”.
The abstract of 4th (actually 10th) part is appended below. 2nd part was dedicated to Dr Deming’s 14 points, which were elaborated in 6 odd articles all published in Quality World.

Cold & Flu Survival Toolkit to Combat H1N1 - the Swine Flue Virus
The Menace of second wave of Swine Flue, caused by Virus H1N1 is being forecast.

To recall this is more deadly, in a way then AIDS, caused by HIV virus, because you can not stop a neighbour from sneezing ( though one should etiquettes wise use a handerkerchief to abate that blow of mucus.

How the first wave has been deadly was talked about in the previous pages .

The answer however is in the main ‘precaution’- To was your hands as frequently as you can, and not by a soap rich in germicidals ( like *tol), but by ordinary soaps.

A better answer is in Yoga- keeping healthy- the Indian way.

The Quality Brilliance Thru’ Brilliant People

Excellence is what excellence does.

SHEQing the Potential Holistically for Power

Yes, India is very poorly managed at many places. One such case was targeted for analysis through this paper. That is regarding the (electrical) power production through Thermal Power plants, based on coal, transported over long distances into disparate states. While plethora of ash transported along the road (rail) leads to Fuel misuse, the ash dumping has proved to be excessively harmful and carcinogenic.
