Country lost one-third of its coastline from erosion, gained almost as much: Report 12.8.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
Natural causes such as cyclones and waves, as well as human activities like construction have led to nearly one-third of a large part of India's coastline to be eroded in the last 26 years, but almost an equal area has been added because of new sediment deposits, according to a government report. The National Centre for Coastal Research surveyed 6,031 kilometres of India's 7,517-kilometre coastline from 1990 to 2016, and found that 33 per cent of it has witnessed erosion, most of it along the eastern coast facing the Bay of Bengal, with West Bengal recording the highest erosion. At the same time, 29 per cent of the surveyed coastline saw an accretion, or gain in deposits. "Erosion and accretion are complementary to each other. If the sand and sediments have drifted from one side, it must accumulate somewhere," said M V Ramana Murthy, director of NCCR and one of the authors of the report. The report says that 2,156.43 kilometres of the country's surveyed coastline faced erosion, while 1,941.24 kilometres ...

Tibetan spiritual leader the Dalai Lama today apologised for his statement that India's first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru was "self-centred." On Wednesday, he had said Nehru had a "self-centred attitude" to become India's first prime minister even though Mahatma Gandhi was in favour of Muhammad Ali Jinnah taking the top post at that time. He had also claimed India's partition would not have happened if Mahatma Gandhi's wish of Jinnah becoming the prime minister had materialised. "My statement has created a controversy. I apologise if I have said something wrong," said the Dalai Lama, when he was asked by reporters to comment on what he meant by calling Nehru self-centred. "I felt pity when I heard that Mahatma Gandhi was opposed to partition... There are more Muslims in India than in Pakistan, but past is past," the Dalai Lama said. Addressing an event at the Goa Institute of Management in Sankhalim town on Wednesday, he said, "I think it was a little bit self-centred attitude of Pandit Nehru that he ...
