Neelakurinji blooms in Sandur 25.9.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
While the people and ecosystem of Ballari are slowly recovering from the nightmarish unethical mining, the blue flowers that have carpeted the hills has come as a sign of hope. After a span of 12 years, the neelakurinji (Strobilanthes kunthianus) is blooming in the upper ridges of Sandur hills. It is a small herb that blooms in some parts of Western Ghats like the Nilgiris and Baba Budan Giri hills. When neelakurinji blooms in great numbers, it covers the entire grasslands around Shola forests, with its vibrant bluish-purple hue. In olden days, the tribal people related the blooming of neelakurinji to their age. Neelakurinji is a herb that grows anywhere between one and three feet tall, and it bears flowers in different months of monsoon, depending upon the region. The plant shows the peculiar behaviour of reproduction by flowering once in its life time (once in 12 years) and later dying. The phenomenon of mass seeding is called as 'masting', which is also seen in the bamboo species. These kinds of ...

'Firms must build transport ways before mining huge amount of ore' 26.8.2017 Deccan Herald - State
N K Jiwrajka, former member secretary of the central empowered committee of the Supreme Court, has called for steps to ensure contractors cannot mine more than three crore metric tonnes of ore till they build railway conveyor belts and railway slidings to transport the ore. In a 47-page submission to the court, Jiwrajka said extraction of huge quantity of ore could be allowed only after making arrangements to transport it without harming the environment. The report says that the committee had, in the past, recommended that mining should be stopped if railway conveyor belts and railway slidings are not installed within a 21-month deadline in the mining areas of Ballari and Chitradurga districts. The recommendation should be taken seriously, the committee has said. JSW steel company consumes 70% of the ore produced in the state, the committee says, adding that it should restore the defunct pipeline conveyor from Nandihalli in Sandur taluk to Toranagal. The report of the committee says that new companies ...
