Green Energy From Renewable energy sources

Renewable energy sources such as water, solar and wind power together form more or less an inexhaustible source of energy, which technically would be able to meet the energy needs of the entire world. These three sources are found in every country on the planet, albeit to varying degrees.
Since the oil crises of the 1970s interest in non-fossil energy sources has increased. In recent years additional incentives have emerged primarily due to rising concerns about not only climate changes but also problems in accessing oil and gas.

Renewable energy sources are currently only used for a small portion of the world's energy consumption, however efforts are being made across the world to develop and improve access to renewable energy. For example, EU's representatives have agreed that one-fifth of total EU energy demand in ten years should be powered by renewable energy, compared to less than ten percent today.In addition to improving the environment and guaranteeing supply, 'green energy' can also contribute to economic growth.

Rameswaram is a town in Ramanathapuram district in Tamil Nadu. It is located on Pamban Island, also known as Rameswaram Island, and is connected to mainland India by the Pamban Bridge, opened for traffic in 1914. It is India's first sea bridge and is still functioning double-leaf bascule bridge section that can be raised to let ships pass under the bridge. Together with Kashi, it is considered to be one of the holiest places in India to Hindus, and part of the Char Dham pilgrimages. Hence, it is a bustling pilgrim center. The pictorial postmark shows a section of the famous third corridor (outer set of corridors) of the Ramanathaswamy Temple at Rameswaram, and is reputed to be longest in the world, with total length of 3850 feet. There are about 1200 pillars in the outer corridor. Their height is about 30 feet from the floor to the center of the roof.

India Post has issued postage stamp for Pamban Bridge in 2007 and postage stamp for Rameswaram Temple on 2001. Rameswaram Temple is also depicted on British India stamp issued on 1935.
