Siberian cranes skip India 2.3.2015 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Siberian cranes don't flock to India during their annual winter migration anymore. Why? It's because they are extinct. Mrityunjay Bose sheds some light on the reasons behind their disappearance. The majestic Siberian cranes will never come to India again - it's almost confirmed now. These birds have not been sighted in Bharatpur National Park of Rajasthan since 2001 and it is very unlikely that they will ever come back to this part of the globe again. It has been 15 years since this bird was last sighted in this part of India. It's sad to note that the Indian flock of Siberian cranes is now extinct. The situation looked hopeful a few years ago but ever since the Central population went extinct, the situation seems dire. This plight is in spite of the fact that Keoladeo National Park (formerly known as Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary) is a World Heritage Site, a Ramsar Wetland Site and identified as an Important Bird Area (IBA) by Birdlife International.

Posh tag no guarantor of amenities 28.2.2015 deccanherald.com
Localities like Thippasandra, Indiranagar, CV Raman Nagar and HAL Layout may be listed under the posh area category. They may be having better infrastructure, decent civic amenities and good connectivity, including Metrorail and bus services. Yet, CV Raman Nagar Assembly constituency that includes these areas is not devoid of civic woes as was evident from the Janaspandana, organised by Deccan Herald and its sister publication Prajavani at the Poornaprajna School Grounds in Thippasandra on Saturday. Local MLA S Raghu and corporators of six wards under the constituency took part. Members of BDA Layout Residents' Welfare Association (RWA) said that the MLA had inaugurated a park an year ago, but it lacks maintenance. Chandrashekhar from the BBMP (Horticulture dept) said suitable action would follow in two days as the tender is in the final stages and contract for maintenance would be awarded. T Seetharam from Jeevanbima Nagar suggested that 13 acres of land in his locality, which has been handed over to ...
