Learning how to deal with history -- from three women writers (Column: Bookends) 19.11.2017 All News-IANS Stories
The human propensity to go full tilt at windmills, a la Don Quixote, is not limited by gender -- as anyone seeing Indian news channels focusing on a forthcoming film can attest. Among other grievances, a section of women protesters deemed "Padmavati" an attack on royalty (in republican India, no less), underlining how many of us can do much with history -- except learn from it. Even when there are some worthwhile woman guides.

Far-flung, neglected for decades, Gurez Valley longs for attention 19.11.2017 DNA: Mumbai
Should we suffer because we are peaceful, love the country and wish to contribute more for its development?”Asked an elderly villager while discussing Gurez Valley’s slow pace of development during the 40th Shodhyatra last month. Walking down from Chakwali, the last village of our country on the northern tip in this region in Jammu and Kashmir, a common sight was women bringing 50-60 kg of wood on their back in baskets. The protrusions on the  baskets hurt their backs. They needed new designs. If we cannot remove their burden, can we at least make it bearable? A room requires wood for warming when the night temperatures drop to minus 6-7 degree. After a week or two, the area will witness 20-30 feet snowfall and be cut off with defense transport being an exception.   Thankfully, Tawsif, a local innovator from another region of Kashmir has developed an energy efficient Bukhari or heater. It will not only help keep room warm and require only 3-4 kg wood for a night but also be a revolutionary step in energy ...

KPCL downgrades its power supply by 500 MW 18.11.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Bengaluru: In view of continued shortage in supply of coal, the Karnataka Power Corporation Ltd (KPCL) on Saturday alerted the government that it is downgrading its power supply by 500 MW per day with immediate effect. This resulted in Chief Minister Siddaramaiah convening an emergency high-level meeting, where Energy Minister D K Shivakumar conceded that additional purchase of power had become inevitable to avoid load shedding. Citing that the power purchase might burden the exchequer further, he pointed out that the outages would dent the ruling partys prospects during the 2018 Assembly polls. KPCL managing director Kumar Naik told DH that Karnataka continues to reel under coal crisis as both the Western Coalfields Ltd (WCL) and Singareni Colleries Company Ltd had failed to meet the commitment made earlier this year. "As this has resulted in hand-to-mouth existence, we have downgraded our generation capacity by 500 MW," he added. KPCL had written to the Karnataka Regulatory Electricity Commission ...

With terrorism, maritime security on agenda, India, France hold bilateral talks 17.11.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
Gravely concerned over growing terrorism, India and France on Friday decided to strengthen counter-terror cooperation, and asked the international community to oppose the countries which are financing, sheltering and providing safe havens to terrorists. External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj held wide-ranging talks with her French counterpart Jean-Yves Le Drian, during which they also decided to strengthen cooperation in the Indian Ocean Region (IOR), a development which comes barely days after India held quadrilateral talks with Japan, Australia and the US in Manila on the sidelines of India-ASEAN Summit.
