After independence we have made lots of progress in Dam and Water Reservoirs, Now India is one of the world’s most prolific dam-builders. Around 4300 large dams already constructed and many more in the pipeline, Almost half of which are more than twenty  years old. These dams are major attraction of tourists from all over India. Some facts about the Indian dams are Tehri Dam is the eighth highest dam in the world. The Idukki dam is the first Indian arch dam in Periyar River Kerala and the largest arch dam in Asia. The Grand Anicut, Kallanai, located on Holy Cavery River in Tamil Nadu, is the oldest dam in the world. Indira Sagar Dam is the Largest Reservoir in India. These dams with the channel provides an ideal environment for wildlife.

Structural Engineering could be the better option. The first one makes the compromises on design while the later does it on site and in case of any mishap it is always the site engineer who is caught.

He laughed and said" usfine can be a good friend for me personally in Runescape". Is he funny? no, he just said the language in the heart.He knew lots friend in Runecape,He appreciate that RS make his life more wonderful. He would think" Precisely what does runescape have to offer to its millions of players?"Almost all rs gold players would think it.
