Soon, it will be mandatory for new constructions ranging from 5,000 sqmt to 1,50,000sqmt in large townships to have rainwater harvesting systems, minimum green cover and proper facilities for solid waste management.

Top 10 depictions of British rain 6.4.2016 The Guardian -- Front Page
If April showers are keeping you indoors, English literature from Shakespeare to Hilary Mantel provides a vivid idea of what you’re missing – with no need to get wet For the last decade or so I’ve been devouring writing old and new about the British countryside – but recently it struck me how few of the books I love feature good old-fashioned rain. Given the fact that precipitation is something of a national obsession, it seemed remiss that the country we see through the eyes of our psychogeographers and botanists, our naturalists, travel writers and landscape historians, is largely a fair-weather one. So I set out to remedy that, in a small way, by going on a series of deliberately rainy expeditions and writing a book of my own about them. In contrast to our non-fiction, though, you don’t have to look far in novels, plays and poetry to find a bit of familiar British weather. In fact, rain patters and drums and trickles its way from Chaucer and Shakespeare to Austen, Alice Oswald and beyond. Here, in no ...

Over 200 irrigation projects worth nearly Rs 2.42 lakh crore stalled for decades 16.3.2016 DNA: Opinion
Like his father before him, Dattatatraya Kshirsagar, 80, has been looking forward since years to the day when a $65 million (approximately Rs 438 crore) dam will be completed in his village, an hour-and-a-half drive southeast of Mumbai. The dam would supply enough water to irrigate 1,000 hectares (2,470 acres) of parched land around it, including Kshirsagar's 2.5-hectare family farm in Kondhane village. A steady water supply, instead of reliance on seasonal monsoon rains, would allow him to switch to cash crops and reap three harvests a year, instead of one now, Kshirsagar said. Kshirsagar's family has been holding on to that dream since 1984 when the project was first proposed by the state government. "My family's income will more than double if they complete the dam," he said. Prime Minister Narendra Modi is promising to do just that in the 2016-17 budget presented on Feb. 29. His government has pledged nearly $13 billion on rural development, aiming to double farmer's incomes by 2022. Irrigation is a ...
