What's not to love here? 2.9.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Nagaland has always fascinated me. The many stories of its indigenous tribal communities, the rich cultural heritage the state is home to, the colourful attire of the locals, the distinctive flavour of the Naga dishes, and of course, the scenic beauty of the place. As I step out of the airport in Dimapur, the one thing that strikes me immediately is the cool and crisp air around, a luxury for someone like me from a polluted city. But, this is just the beginning, as I realise later. For, as I begin my drive from Dimapur to Kohima, the capital city of Nagaland, I'm in for more reasons to rejoice. The air gets better and better. So do the views. They resemble picture postcards from exotic lands, as also the many pictures I had seen of Nagaland in tourist brochures while planning this trip. About 14 km away, a massive gate welcomes me to Nagaland; I'm at Chumoukedima, the district headquarters of Dimapur district. Since I'm proceeding towards Kohima, I need to produce the mandatory Inner Line Permit that's ...

ATCs not to meddle with cloud seeding 29.8.2017 Deccan Herald - City

Air Traffic Controllers (ATCs) manning flight operations at Devanahalli, HAL, Jakkur, Yelahanka and Hubballi on Tuesday said they will not interfere with the state government's cloud seeding project.

The Rs 35-crore project was facing air clearance issues ever since it was formally launched on August 21 by the Rural Development and Panchayat Raj (RDPR) department.

A meeting was held between the ATCs and Additional Chief Secretary-cum-Development Commissioner T M Vijay Bhaskar to iron out differences.

"The ATCs have assured that there will not be any problems from their end for cloud seeding," RDPR chief engineer (rural water supply) Prakash Kumar said.

Only electric vehicles by 2030: Goyal 18.8.2017 Deccan Herald - District
Piyush Goyal, the Union Minister for Power, Coal, New and Renewable Energy, and Mines, has blamed the state government for the shortage of electricity in Karnataka. He said the country was self-sufficient in coal and electricity. Speaking to journalists here on Friday, he said there would be no shortage of electricity if the state supported the Centre in extending the power transmission lines. "Hydroelectric power is suffering in Karnataka for the last three years due to failed monsoons. It is unfortunate that farmers irrigation pump sets in the state do not get eight hours of power supply for watering of crops. Karnataka can buy power from the Centre at Rs 3 per unit," he said. He continued: "Since the NDA came to power, we have increased the number of transmission lines in South India. We aim to increase it fivefold." Asserting that the country has enough coal supplies, Goyal said the Union government had sanctioned solar parks with a capacity of 2,000 MW to Karnataka. "Energy shortage shrunk in April ...

In I-Day speech, Prez pitches for 'New India' 15.8.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
Less than a month after the Opposition Congress got furious with President Ram Nath Kovind for not mentioning India's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru in his maiden address, he obliged them on Monday during his address to the nation on the eve of the 71st Independence Day. Kovind credited Nehru for emphasising that India's age-old heritage and traditions could co-exist with technology and for his quest to modernise the society. He said a galaxy of revolutionary leaders have guided our country. The President said that in 2022, the country will complete 75 years of Independence and "it is our national resolve to attain certain milestones for a New India by then". He said a 'New India' means some obvious parameters, such as a house for every family, power on demand, better roads and telecom, and rapid and sustained growth. "And yet, there is more. New India must include that integral humanist component that is in our DNA, and which has defined our country and our civilisation. New India must be a ...

Independence Day 2017: Full text of President Ram Nath Kovind's speech to the nation 14.8.2017 DNA: Money
Dear Fellow Citizens engaged in the task of nation building, My greetings to you as we complete 70 years of our Independence Our country will be celebrating its 71st Independence Day tomorrow. On the eve of this anniversary I extend my good wishes to all of you. On August 15, 1947, we became a free nation. Sovereignty and the responsibility for our destiny moved from the British crown to the people of India. Some have called this process a “transfer of power”. It was much more than that. It was the culmination of a dream for our country – a dream seen by our forefathers and freedom fighters. We were free to imagine and build our nation anew. It is crucial to understand that this dream for a free India was rooted in our ordinary villages, in the well-being of our poor and underprivileged, and in the all-round development of our country. For this we owe so much to the countless freedom fighters who made great sacrifices to bring us here. Chennamma, the Rani of Kittur. Lakshmibai of Jhansi. Matangini Hazra, ...
