Sentiments can save our water bodies 22.5.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
"But it is more a matter of sentiment!" You hear such a statement made in a sheer no-nonsense, practical tone during a conversation and are surprised how it evokes sentiment in you. In fact, when I heard these words, on why the fight is on against the projects with river Nethravathi, it struck me that I had agreed there was fear of playing with nature, but failed to recognise the acts as outcomes of sentiment. Of course, it was selfish to not share the river water. Sentiments, said my father, are like the river herself, developed over generations. They are background players, growing subconsciously but strongly within us - difficult to explain or fight. The river makes me feel nostalgic, as children we played or spent silent evenings with Nethravathi and her tributaries. Kayyara Kinhanna Rai's poem on the journey of Nethravathi from Kudremukh in Chikkamagaluru district till the Arabian Sea, also describes the Western Ghats and the coastal region. I always felt this description dearer than Kuvempu's poem ...

The state government has now initiated efforts to recover land once leased to the Kudremukh Iron Ore Company Ltd (KIOCL) for mining in Kudremukh National Park (KNP). Based on last month's directions by the Karnataka High Court which disposed of the petition filed by Wildlife First, Additional Chief Secretary (ACS), Environment, Forests and Ecology, T M Vijay Bhaskar, conducted a detailed enquiry and ordered the Chikkamagaluru deputy commissioner to recover revenue land. He also directed the forest department to stop all resort work being undertaken by the KIOCL and Alva's Kudremukh Nisargadhama (AKN) on the subleased Sahyadri Guest House and 30 'D' Type cottages.
