He therefore displayed an strange skill to hold alongside all colors of political opinion—an skill that got here to the fore whilst he headed the nationwide Democratic Alliance govt among 1999 and 2004. And in the back of this public character was once an strange own lifestyles, carried out with such dignity as to stay freed from innuendo.

Groundwater 29(4):499–509 Rushton KR, Chan YK (1977) Numerical pumping test analysis in unconﬁned aquifers.
The interpretation of vertical electrical sounding (VES) curve from various geological settings, using master curve, is restricted in the sense that standard curves are available only for a limited number of layers of given resistivity and thickness. The use of type curves is not only time consuming but also results into the error in the estimation of parameters. Therefore, alternatively one can compute the sounding curve that considers the number of layer and its resistivity. Algorithm and software are developed that can directly give the resistivity and thickness of various layers considering the data obtained from the ﬁeld.
Apart from the Darcy’s law, the following assumptions are made to develop solution of groundwater flow equations in terms of drawdown and aquifer parameters. • The aquifer is extended to large area (inﬁnite areal extent), • The aquifer is homogeneous, isotropic and of uniform thickness, • Prior to the pumping, the piezometric surface or phreatic surface is (nearly) horizontal over the area influenced by pumping test, • The pumping rate is constant and • The pumping well penetrates the entire thickness of the aquifer.
