Cop who wore many hats 23.6.2019
Most of my good work was within the police department, though today the people seem to know me more because of my work outside," says Mr C. Anjaneya Reddy, a former director-general of police and tourism corporation chief who is credited with reviving Buddhist culture in the state and who made his mark as an educator. A man with strong views, Mr Reddy dealt with issues within the police in a subtle manner that even won appreciation from the powers that be, but his pet peeve is that the laws governing the police are not being revised. "I have very strong views on certain issues," he says, "and I think that our police is extremely colonial. I have made several presentations and sent representations and even now when I speak I talk about colonial police in democratic India. "The police force is not bad, it is because the legal system is still colonial," he says. While he had strong views on the police and reforms, early on in life, Mr Reddy and others realised that there ...

Indonesia's Yogyakarta declared UNESCO World Heritage site 22.6.2019
Yogyakarta: The beautiful Indonesian city of Yogyakarta, bustling with cultural centres, is famed for its two historical temples, Borobudur and Prambanan, both on the recommended must-see places for visitors. While the two temples now witness tourist inflows in thousands, what one may not know about these UNESCO World Heritage Sites is that they were once covered in volcanic ash and abandoned with minimal scope for restoration. Built in the 8th Century in Central Java province, the Borobudur temple contains three parts - a pyramidal base with five square terraces, the trunk of a cone with three circular platforms and a monumental stupa at the top. Around the circular platforms are 72 open stupas, each containing a statue of Lord Buddha. When initially discovered, the structure was in a dilapidated state covered with bushes. It took the effort of over 200 locals over a span of two months to clean and restore the sanctity of this temple. The first major restoration, however, took place between 1973 and ...

Stonehenge: Dancers, musicians and revelers have watched the sun flicker over the horizon at Stonehenge, celebrating the summer solstice at the Neolithic stone circle.

The sun rose behind the Heel Stone, which traditionally marks the spot on the horizon for the sunrise, at 4:52 a.m. Friday (0352 GMT; 11:52 p.m. EDT Thursday). The rays streamed through the circle, marking the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere.

Indonesian locals preserves Hindu culture 21.6.2019
Yogyakarta: It is widely known that Indonesia was once ruled by a Hindu kingdom. However, centuries after the fall of that kingdom, the values of Hinduism are still being preserved by locals in the region. In many parts of the country which has a predominant Muslim (approximately 83 per cent) population, Hindu temples, scriptures, murals and sculptures of Hindu gods and goddesses are still preserved. In an interaction with ANI, officials from the Ministry of Tourism said Sanskrit words are weaved into the local language. An example of this, an official said, is the motto of the Indonesian Navy - JalasyevaJayamahe - which is coined from Sanskrit. Another major attraction in Yogyakarta city for locals and tourists alike is the musical rendition of the epic tale Ramayana that is performed at regular intervals at the historic 9th century Prambanan temple, which is now a UNESCO world cultural heritage. While the storyline has not been altered, Indonesian music and dance is used to narrate the tale, thereby ...

Notre Dame reconstruction on track despite delays in donation 21.6.2019
Paris: The billionaire French donors who promised flashy donations to rebuild Notre Dame after a devastating fire haven"t paid a penny yet toward the restoration of the French national monument. Instead, it"s been mainly American and French individuals, via charitable foundations at Notre Dame, who have made the first donations, paying the bills and salaries for the up to 150 workers employed by the cathedral since the April 15 fire. This month, the foundations are handing over the first private reconstruction payment of $4 million. Almost $1 billion was promised by France"s richest families and companies, but officials say those donors are holding back, waiting for plans to become more concrete so they can choose where their money is spent. Meanwhile, rebuilding has been continuing around the clock for weeks. Workers are creating a wooden walkway to gain access to the 250 tons of burnt-out scaffolding that had been installed for the ill-fated restoration of the spire. They will remove ...
