Even as the preparations to host Bahubali Mahamastakabhisheka in Shravanabelagola in 2018 has started, delay by the forest department in felling the trees has affected road widening works. The Karnataka State Highways and Public Works department have decided to upgrade eight routes connecting Shravanabelagola in view of the festival.

The Supreme Court on Tuesday asked Principal District Judge, Bengaluru to examine a claim by Emerald Haven Estates Ltd that its coffee plantations in about 350 acre did not fall under the Chamarajanagara reserved forest or Tiger reserve area. The company has claimed that, originally, the property was settled by the former Maharaja of Mysuru in favour of one C W G Morris sometime in the year 1895. The company subsequently acquired the property by virtue of a registered deed of sale in 2007. "Whether the land falls in the reserved forest or tiger reserve or it was covered under denotified areas, somebody has to examine it," a bench of Justices R F Nariman and Sanjay Kishan Kaul said.

The forest department is likely to slash the prices of the 7 newly launched eco-trails. This move follows the departments decision of reducing the forest entry fee and camera charges. "This is being done because of the feedback we received from people. People have pointed out and we have also realised that the rates are on the higher side, which many cannot afford. This has acted as a deterrent for several trekkers who would otherwise frequently trek on this routes in the past." said an official from the forest department. Presently the fee totals to Rs 450 which will likely be cut to Rs 200. The official said that the proposal to slash the rates by half is being discussed by the head of the department and the government also.

IT union in Karnataka recognized, but companies say it will fizzle out 10.11.2017 All Companies Stories
For over a decade, India's IT industry has seen multiple attempts to mobilise workforce to form an active trade union. The efforts has finally yielded results. Karnataka has recognised Karnataka State IT/ITeS Employees Union (KITU) as a workers' body to fight for its rights at a time when the IT sector is facing its worst disruption in a decade. In 2005, the UNITES, a global trade union for IT workers affiliated to IBM, opened its Bengaluru office and looked to mobilise workers from the tech sector in India. However, the efforts did not take off as soon after the financial meltdown in the US that led to a recession, global firms started to offshore work to Indian companies and established their own captives. The result was a job boom in the IT services sector with exports of nearly $ 118 billion in fiscal 2017. The sector besides paying higher wages has been focusing on people welfare, building campuses and employing chief fun officers to engage employees. In the last two years, ...

The abodes of Lord Bahubali 6.11.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
On the summit of a tall, rocky outcrop, studded with monuments of various kinds, is a large, walled compound, towering over the ramparts of which is the head and upper torso of a gigantic human figure. Toiling ant-like, up the hundreds of rock-cut steps leading to the top, is a steady stream of devotees, who will arrive at the sanctuary at the summit, to gaze in awe at the 57 feet (17.7m) high statue of Bahubali - the "largest consecrated granite monolith anywhere in the world." Unperturbed by the hubbub of the crowd and the attentions of the devout, Bahubali stands erect, his powerful arms hanging loose by his sides, gazing ahead through half-closed eyes, a gentle smile playing on his lips, "verily the personification of tranquillity" according to the celebrated Jain poet Hemachandra. This image - the tallest statue of Bahubali, or Gommata as he is also known, is at Shravanabelagola, in Hassan district of Karnataka. There are several other equally impressive statues of Bahubali at other places in ...

Packaging ideas to take them home 5.11.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Going grocery-shopping with a big shopping list and you find spices, mixes, teas, coffees, oils, beverages, ingredients et al wrapped, packed and sealed in safe, elaborate containers, bottlers, boxes and packets, waiting to be consumed. Behind the moment of being able to use the grocery shopping list, is the thought of how did all those products reach the store in the first place, and then, how were they able to be taken home? The answer sits firmly packaged in one of the most important, yet working-in-the-background sort of industries â€" Packaging. And Manjusjree Technopack is a packaging household name today, with innovations in the plastic packaging space, which is the driving force of how food, beverage, and other home FMCG companies seamlessly position, sell and supply their products today.

Forest dept likely to cut 'hefty' fees for taking cams into the wild 2.11.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The Forest Department has decided to revise the charges for taking cameras into national parks and wildlife/bird sanctuaries in Karnataka following strong negative feedback from wildlife photographers, just a day after the new rates came into force. "We have received many complaints from people that the new rates are too high. The new rates even led to quarrels between our staff and tourists. So, we have decided to revise them," an official told DH. Just after the new rates came into effect on November 1, many photographers and wildlife conservationists took to social media to vent their anger. Petitions were signed opposing it. In some cases, a simple message like #SafariBeda turned into a campaign. "Bengaluru has the highest number of photographers, especially wildlife photographers. The increase in camera rates will act as a deterrent and send the message that the forest is open only to the niche, the influentials and the children of politicians," said Vedant L, a software professional and wildlife ...

Sometime back, nine of us close friends planned a visit to Australia. It was a 12-day trip which covered Sydney, Cairns, Brisbane, Gold Coast and Melbourne. Our tour was organised by Chariot World Tours Ltd. We were a group of 24 members, all from Bengaluru. After an 11-hour-journey, Singapore Airlines took us to Sydney via Singapore.

Our next visit was to the spiral-shaped aquarium which houses 700 species of fish and other aquatic animals. Sydney Tower, which offers a 360-degree-view of Sydney city, was next on our list. On our way back, we visited Bondi Beach, Harbour Bridge and Darling Harbour. As night fell, we went on a Sydney show boat cruise with dinner, which we thoroughly enjoyed. The following day, we left for the Blue Mountains. After a journey of two hours through the country side, we reached Jenolan Caves known for its Calcium ...

Stunning sights of Ketti Valley 1.11.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Lately, whenever there is an opportunity, we escape to Ketti village in the bosom of Ketti Valley on the Ootyâ€"Coonoor highway. We set out early in the morning so that we could have a peaceful drive through Bengaluru roads. By 8 am we reached Lokabiruchi Hotel in Ramanagar. After a sumptuous breakfast, we set out for Ketti. Driving on good roads is a pleasure and some distance beyond Gundlupet, we got a glimpse of the Nilgiris which never fails to cheer us up. We timed our drive in such a way that we could greet our four-legged friends in Bandipur. The sauntering elephants, gambolling antelopes and jumping monkeys, and strutting peacocks were indeed a beautiful sight. Driving through the ghat section and seeing the lovely landscape dotted with streams, waterfalls and tall Eucalyptus trees was a very pleasant treat. We reached the marketplace in Ooty around noon, after about eight hours, in time for lunch at Nahar â€" the best hotel in our experience. Armed with essential groceries, ...

Shun axing of trees for projects, translocate them, Centre urged 30.10.2017 deccanherald.com
Officials from the Institute of Wood Science and Technology (IWST) and the Forest department, on Monday, urged the Central government to make a policy decision to translocate as many trees as possible, instead of cutting them for infrastructure projects. Citing the example of Jayamahal Road, Surendra Kumar, IWST director, said BBMP had sought their opinion on translocating 135 trees. "We had said there is a problem with 45 trees as the roads are narrow, there are underground and overhead cables and pipelines. The BBMP officials were supposed to get back to us with an alternative solution, but nothing has happened after that," he said. Unless there is a policy decision to translocate trees, authorities may not take it seriously, he said. IWST has partnered with Volvo Trucks India to translocate trees. "We have researchers, scientific backing and expertise. IWST will develop the protocol on how the trees can be translocated. We are ready to help people with translocation, but they will have to come to ...
