Reviving the natural coastal guards 27.3.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The biodiversity of Karnataka is often represented by depicting the Western Ghats and the tigers. While the importance of both cannot be undermined, there is also the 320-km-long coastline that the state boasts of, with its magnificent rivers, lagoons, bay areas, creeks, and beaches. It is amidst this habitable conglomeration of saline waters from the seas and fresh water from the rivers, where the mangroves, the floating forests, thrive. These forests may not be as magnanimous as the more famous mangrove ecosystem of eastern India, the Sunderbans. However, the mangrove patches of Karnataka are a veritable spectacle, proving their worth through the ecological good they are bringing to the area, and the growing economic value. Some of the best locations to find mangroves in Karnataka are Swarna, Sita, Kodi, Gangoli, Aghanashini and Kali rivers, and towards the mouth of Haladi-Chakra-Kollur rivers. As the rivers and several small rivulets originating from the Western Ghats make their way towards the ...

Dry lands, economic deprivation hit agri workers in Cauvery delta 24.3.2017 DNA: Top News
The unemployed agricultural labourers of the Cauvery delta region in Tamil Nadu are facing a double whammy of drought and a slowdown in industry. With no relief from the state government, these labourers are left in the lurch. The situation is particularly bad in the Cauvery delta districts of Thanjavur, Tiruvarur, Nagapattinam, Cuddalore, Pudukottai, Perambalur, Ariyalur and Tiruchirappalli, which comprises one-fourth of the total 96.06 lakh agricultural labourers in the state. With most of South India reeling under the impact of failed monsoons, the workers who migrate to Kerala, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh in search of 'greener pastures' have to compete with local peasants. "Most labourers who fail to find jobs in the neighbouring southern states are forced to shift to the north. We are facing the worst ever drought," said P Shanmugam, general secretary, Tamil Nadu Vivasayigal Sangam. However, the worst-affected are the labourers who are employed in the textile industries in Tirupur and Coimbatore. ...

Summer's here, city braces for water, power woes 22.3.2017 deccanherald.com
This summer, India Meteorological Department has forecast a further rise in temperature with periodic thundershowers in Bengaluru and parts of south interior Karnataka. The city on Wednesday recorded a maximum of 34° Celsius, against 33.6° Celsius on Tuesday and 36° Celsius on Sunday. Sundar M Metri, director-in-charge, IMD-Bengaluru, told DH cloudy skies and thundershowers are expected in the coming days. "When humidity increases and there is moisture in the air, clouds are formed, which lead to thundershowers. After that, the temperature starts to soar again," he explained. He said the discomfort is due to dry weather and lack of wind. While the humidity level is 49%, wind speed is three knots. Increasing concretisation is also causing a slight increase in temperature, he said. Though the energy department claims that there is sufficient power to meet the summer needs, Bangalore Electricity Supply Company (Bescom) officials warn of power cuts due to maintenance work. "Though we have ...
