After completing the Indo-Pakistan friendship and brotherhood march in Banaskantha near the border, the group led by Magsaysay Award-winner Sandeep Pandey will begin another march in Kutch, where proponents of peace and friendship from the Pakistani side will gather in Badin village in Thar Nagarparkar district of the Sindh province. From June 19 to 30, Pandey had led a 200-kilometre march from Sabarmati Ashram in Ahmedabad to Sui village in Banaskantha district in north Gujarat near the India-Pakistan border. The group demanded cessation of hostilities along the border, denuclearisation of the Indian subcontinent and opening of land routes between Gujarat and Sindh. "While there is a road on the Indian side of the border, there is no connectivity on the Pakistani side. However, there are roads on both Indian and Pakistani sides along the Kutch-Thar Nagarparkar districts and so the opening of land routes is much more feasible here. When people from both sides meet, relations will improve," said ...

Centre quickens environmental approvals to facilitate economic growth, alarms activists 25.6.2018 DNA: Top News
Centre is fast-tracking environmental clearances for projects like power plants and coal mines in a bid to propel growth, setting off alarm bells among environmentalists and affected residents who say the decisions are being made too quickly. In a country where state machinery typically moves slowly, the environment ministry under Prime Minister Narendra Modi has slashed the average time taken to grant clearances to 170 days from 600 days, said two government sources with direct knowledge of the matter. "We're standardising processes and taking decisions swiftly," said one of the officials, who did not want to be named, citing government policy. "We know the basic issues, and merely taking more time for approvals does not mean much." The environment ministry did not respond to requests for comment. The push appears to be similar to U.S. President Donald Trump's efforts to speed up infrastructure approvals - his administration has said it wants environmental reviews for major projects to take no longer ...

When the hills go thirsty 24.6.2018 DNA: Top News
It is summertime and Shimla is a busy place. There are travellers to be checked-in, woollens to be sold at discounted 'summer' prices and tourists waiting to be shown around the mountain vistas. But, there is one thing whose mention is enough for everyone to pause and reflect on — water or the lack of it. There is an unconcealed unanimity across government offices, hotels and homes in the hill town, commercial establishments on the famous Mall Road and villages on the outskirts that the water crisis this summer is the worst that Shimla has ever faced. While the scarcity has always reared its head each summer, locals and experts admit that the acute crisis, which lasted over three weeks between May 20 and June 12, is unprecedented. "We did not have water for 15 days at a stretch. It was an ordeal for all of us in the neighbourhood. It was especially hard on all the women as taps ran dry even at the public toilets. We had to send our kids to relatives' homes in other cities," said Soma Jaiswal, 77, a ...

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 ...
