DNA Jaipur 10th Anniversary: No more typifying Rajasthan, we have changed 23.6.2018 DNA: Opinion
Adecade is not even a drop in the ocean of history and heritage; cultures and communities; sights and sounds that make up our state. Change is inevitable in an increasingly connected world. Our Rajasthan, too has been undergoing a metamorphosis. The ghunghat is being replaced. Manju Devi, a porter in Jaipur station has broken into a very male bastion. So has Meera Bai Meena who repairs handpumps in hamlets nestled in the hills of Udaipur. The travails and triumphs of Rupa Yadav, a child bride who is now pursuing her MBBS, exemplifies the change in mindsets. I see a difference in every sector. It was the women of the state who campaigned to make the state free of open defecation. Village Wildlife Watchers, unread in most part and volunteers at that, use Whatsapp to monitor wild animals in their charge. Today, Rajasthan has institutions of National repute – IIT, IIM, AIIMS, National Law School. Youth from Rajasthan are acquiring skills that make them employable. Just running after a degree has become a ...

The Maharashtra State Khadi and Village Industries Board (MSKVIB) plans to start an initiative called the "friends of honeybees" to curb the harmful methods employed to remove beehives in urban areas, a senior official said today. Vishal Chordia, chairperson of MSKVIB, said that these "friends of honeybees" would have proper training for the scientific removal of beehives, without killing the bees. "Calling pest control agencies to remove beehives, setting fire underneath them are harmful methods. In order to curb these harmful methods, we are exploring the setting up of friends of honeybees," he said. He said that a dedicated helpline number would be set up on which people could call and inform about the location of beehives in their areas. These would be important steps for bee conservation as well as to create awareness among people that honey bees are an important factor in our ecology, he said. The MSKVIB also proposes to set up a "Honey Park" at Mahabaleshwar in ...

Look Beyond Rivers 5.5.2018 DNA: Top News
​​The mercury is climbing. These are the dog days of summer. Delhi is again facing acute water shortages — one of the biggest challenges it has been grappling with for decades. The worst-hit areas have been its pockets in the Southwest (rocky terrain), North floodplains (parched) and Northwest.  In such times, the Yamuna is always in focus. And it’s natural to some extent, because the river, despite being nothing better than a sewage canal at some places, meets about 70 per cent of Delhi’s water needs. And this is where the main problem has always been.   For, till about a century ago, the city did not depend directly on the Yamuna to meet its water needs. It was more for recreation, rituals, cargo transportation, and a source of livelihood for farmers, fishers, mallahs, washermen, pujaris and swimmers​/divers​.  Historian-filmmaker Sohail Hashmi says the river water was probably not potable in Delhi even before it began to be choked with sewage and industrial waste.  “It had mica seams embedded in the ...

Getting people together for water conservation a challenge: Aamir Khan 22.4.2018 General News
Actor Aamir Khan has said that gathering people from villages to improve the water situation in Maharashtra was a huge challenge. Aamir's Paani Foundation aims to impart knowledge and bring about a change at the grassroots level in Maharashtra about water conservation and watershed management. "The biggest challenge is - people coming together. For example, water can only be stored in a pot which has no holes in it. Until human beings in a community, in the village, come together close (nothing can happen). "If there are cracks in the society, the water will seep through. You have to remove all the cracks and then come together and then you will grab water," Aamir said in an interview here. The 53-year-old actor added that the "biggest task is getting people together for this cause because society is fractured on many levels". "... Politically, there are five parties in each village, we have different castes in villages, you have land owners... Some do not have land, some people have .
