Vol. 4 Issue 3 March 2014 Editorial With the onset of spring, the earth is adorned with varied colours of nature and we all gear up to celebrate the beautiful festival of Holi. To be one with this festivity we have made this issue of BLOOM a very colourful one - starting from the masthead, to the glimpses of the 148th Foundation Day Celebrations in units/establishments across the country and the coverage of the various events. We have received many photographs of the Foundation Day celebrations across locations and we will not do justice if we don’t share them with you. We will shortly publish a Supplementary Bulletin, which will be a Foundation Day Special bulletin in PDF form similar to BLOOM. This Bulletin will be a colourful one and will cover select photographs of various cultural programs, long service award distribution and other programs held during 1st and 2nd February 2014. If you have any contribution, suggestion or feedback, do not hesitate to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. BLOOM wishes you and your family a very Happy & Colourful Holi!

BLESS Update The Earth receives 174 petawatt (PW) of incoming solar radiation at the upper atmosphere. Approximately 30% is reflected back to space while the rest is absorbed by clouds, oceans and land masses. Photovoltaics (PV) is a method of generating electrical power by converting solar radiation into direct current electricity using semiconductors that exhibit the photovoltaic effect. PV is best known as a method for generating electric power by using solar cells to convert energy from the sun into a flow of electrons. The photovoltaic effect refers to photons of light exciting electrons into a higher state of energy, allowing them to act as charge carriers for an electric current. In the current financial year, we have installed & commissioned a combined total capacity of 160 KWp PV modules (130 KWp at IP, Asaoti & 30 KWp at HTP, Taloja). At its peak load the plants will be able to generate 216 MWh units in a year, thus offsetting 200 tons of carbon dioxide generation. HSE (Health, Safety & Environment) Corner

Glimpses from the City of Joy The Armenian Church of the Holy Nazareth is an Armenian Apostolic church that is located in the northwest corner of Barabazar in the Greater Kolkata area, and is called "Mother Church of the Indian Armenians". It is possibly the oldest church in the Kolkata area. It was built in 1724 by Agha Nazar after a fire destroyed the previous Armenian church that was built on the land in 1688. To the first Armenians who settled in India, who were mostly traders, continuation of tradition and preservation of religion were of the utmost importance. The Holy Nazareth structure is one of three Armenian churches in Kolkata; the other two are Saint Mary's Church and the church of Saint Gregory the Illuminator. नए सदस्य / New Member सुश्री नाहीद परिीन की ननयुक्तत 10 फिविी, 2014 को जी&एल, कोलकाता में उप प्रएंधक [अनुसंधान & ववकास], अनुसंधानप्रयोगशालाके रूपमेंो ुई। Ms. Nahid Parveen joined G&L, Kolkata as Dy.
