Suitcase shelf..

Have a few suitcases at home. They take up a fair amount of space and don't fit into the space on top of cupboards. Suitcases in a room take up space and create a visual clutter. This is a problem . And an opportunity.

There's scope to design simple , hollow cupboards with an openable door in which the suitcase(s) can slide in. The top of the shelf can be used for creative display. Drape a lovely fabric on it to add flair and vibrancy to the space.

The idea can be creatively rendered . The sides of the cupboard can have frames in which to slide in pics , the sides can have delicate carvings etc

Plant trees

Political parties have been defacing Mumbai roads with garish posters for years now. Lately some of them have inserting a message in the posters. Possibly a lame bid to look like they have something to say.

The latest one is a NCP poster where the politician's face is about 86% of the poster space. The residual space on the poster has a message to plant trees and save the earth.

Considering the way the agriculture ministry is operating this is now essential for all Indians to do in order to get food at a reasonable cost. Quite clairvoyant and considerate of the agriculture minister to print posters to alert us .
