सीवरेज,बिजली और पानी की लाइनें हो रहीं है अंडरग्राउंड

स्मार्ट सिटी प्रोजेक्ट के तहत शहर में सीवरेज सहित बिजली-पानी की लाइनें अंडरग्राउंड की जा रही है।

साथ ही शहर की ख़राब सड़कों की परेशानी से निपटने का एक्शन प्लान बनाया है जिसके तहत जो सड़क बन जाए, उससे तीन साल तक किसी भी तरह छेड़छाड़ नहीं होगी। इसके लिए सड़काें का ब्यौरा ऑनलाइन किया जाएगा जिसमें निगम के इंजीनियर हिस्ट्री ऑफ राेड्स बनाएंगे। इससे कौनसी सड़क कब बनी, यह जानने में आसानी। यह जानकारी ऑनलाइन रहने से सड़कों का रिपाेर्ट कार्ड बनेगा।

निगम इस तैयारी में है जो सड़क एक बार बन जाये, उससे तीन साल तक किसी भी तरह की छेड़छाड़ न हो।

युआईटी ने भी अपने क्षेत्र की सड़काें की री-कारपेटिंग का काम शुरू किया है। फतहसागर अाेवर फ्लाे प्वाइंट से युआईटी सर्किल तक डामर कर नया कर दिया गया है।

शहर में नई सड़कें बनने के बावजूद कई बार, सरकारी विभाग या निजी टेलीकॉम कंपनियां सड़कें खोदती हैं। पिछले वर्षों में सीवरेज लाइन, स्मार्ट सिटी के कामों, केबल आदि के लिए सड़काें काे खाेदा गया था। इन सडकों को वापस पहले जैसा भी नहीं किया जाता और क्षेत्रवासी धूल-मिट्‌टी से परेशान रहते हैं। इसी को देखते हुए निगम ने तय किया है कि अब जो भी सड़कें बनेंगी, उन्हें तीन साल तक नहीं छेड़ा जाएगा।

हिस्ट्री ऑफ राेड्स के साथ शहर में खराब सड़काें से निजात दिलाने के लिए शहर की प्रमुख सड़काें काे नगर निगम नया करेगा। इन सड़काें की जानकारी जुटाकर सड़कें बनाना शुरू किया जाएगा। शहर के बाहरी हिस्से की हर प्रमुख राेड ठीक करने का प्लान तैयार किया गया है।

सड़काें काे नया जैसा करने के लिए निगम उनकी री-कारपेटिंग करेगा। मुख़्य ट्रंक राेड, क्राॅस राेड या मुख़्य टूरिस्ट राेड पर डामर कर तैयार किया जाएगा। लगभग 50 से 70 किमी क्षेत्र में शहरभर में इनका निर्माण होगा।

मानसून में जो सड़कें पानी भरने से टूटती हैं, उनके डामरीकरण के अलावा तकनीकी काम होंगे। जिन चाैराहाें के आस-पास पानी जमा हाेने से सड़कें टूटती हैं उनके चाराें ओर सीसी सड़क बनाई जाएगी। कुछ चौराहों पर पायलट प्रोजेक्ट सफल हाेने पर सभी चाैराहे शामिल करेंगे।

Rimless, semi or fully rimmed: Which glasses suits you the best?

Gone are the days when glasses made you look serious and nerdy. Now, with so many styles, colours and types available, eyeglasses have become more than a utility item. That is why glasses for men and women have now become like an accessory that helps improve appearance. 

However, with so many options and ever-changing trends, it is challenging to pick the right pair. One question on top of your mind might be that whether you should shop for full-frame, half-frame or rimless glasses. Even though all of it comes down to your personal preference, you still may need some help to decide which one can suit you the best.

We have curated a handy guide for you to understand various types of glasses for men and women and what they offer: 

Rimless Glasses: A Timeless Classic

Rimless Eyeglasses
Black Rectangle Rimless Eyeglasses

Choose a rimless eyeglass frame to reveal your facial features. These glasses for men and women are a great choice to wear at work or any professional event. Such glasses are incredibly comfortable, but make sure you handle them with great care. It is because of the material used for the frame and lenses; both are thin. These glasses for men and women are so lightweight that sometimes you might forget that you are even wearing them. They are no longer available in just the standard rectangular shape, but also circular and other trendy styles. So, whether you want to get the iconic Steve Job’s look or Richard Gere’s captivating look, merge into the rimless trend. 

Half-Rim Glasses: For the Minimalistic Look

Semi Rim Eyeglasses
Demi Brown with Gun Metal Brow-lines Semi Rim Eyeglasses

Half-rim glasses for men and women come are fitted with lenses that are only covered by a top rim.  You can build a sophisticated look by emphasizing the upper portion of your eyes by wearing this style of glasses. This kind of frame is lightweight, and it is the perfect choice for people who wear glasses all day long. 

If you have a diamond or face-down triangle shape, experiment with a semi-rimless frame. It gives you a balanced look, which makes it a perfect fit for changing from work to party look in no time. However, since the bottom part of the lenses is rimless, it is prone to higher wear and tear and may require extra care.

Fully-Rim Glasses: To Emphasize Your Style

Full Rim Eyeglasses
Demi Brown Rectangle Full Rim Eyeglasses

Fully rimmed glasses for men and women come fitted with lenses entirely outlined by a metal or plastic frame. Nothing catches more attention than sporting a bodied frame. Of the three types of frames, fully rim glasses are the sturdiest as they can endure frequent wear and tear. Such glasses for men and women are ideal for you if you have an active lifestyle involving travelling and sports activities.

Also, fully rim glasses for men and women can handle wide and thick lenses because of their lightweight construction, unlike half rim and rimless glasses. One small concern with fully rim glasses is that they tend to be a little heavier than the half rim and rimless glasses. However, it should not be a big deal for you if you don’t mind some extra weight. 

Style & Comfort Together

When looking for a fresh pair of glasses, consider your face type and other factors to make the right choice. It is an accessory that will accentuate your look and style. Trendy eyewear designs from reliable brands like Titan Eye Plus are contemporary, comfortable and cost-effective. These glasses for men and women are easily available online, giving you the flexibility to choose from the latest eyewear collection. There is a wide variety of UV protection and Blue Light Technology glasses available to prevent your eyes from damage.  So, find your perfect pair now to look your best.
