China launches database for stolen foreign antiques 21.4.2018 The Tribune
Beijing, April 21 The State Administration of Cultural Heritage (SACH) in China launched a database on Friday for stolen foreign antiques to prevent them from entering and circulating in the country. The administration will go on to ask entry-exit examination offices to intensify the supervision over the entry and exit of stolen foreign antiques, Xinhua reported. It also called on professional institutions, practitioners and the public to check the database from time to time, to avoid the purchase or sale of such items. The damage to cultural heritage has become a common challenge for the international community, and the stealing and trafficking of antiques has damaged the historical and cultural legacy of many countries, the SACH said in the statement. Last year, the administration joined with the Ministry of Public Security in a similar platform for stolen Chinese antiques. Since 2008, the SACH has made public information on over 6,900 stolen foreign antiques. — ...

Preserve city’s heritage character: Residents 21.4.2018 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Amritsar, April 20 The city celebrated the World Heritage Day three days ago with fervour but it has not much to rejoice as it still struggles to maintain its heritage character. Gurinder Singh Johal, a veteran guide, said there had been a continuous loss of heritage sites to private hands in the walled city. The heritage character of the city is being changed as more people prefer modern structures to heritage ones, he said. He sought its prohibition and a policy to identify the heritage structures and preserve these. Acclaimed conservationist Balvinder Singh said there was a need to restore all 12 historic Darwazas (gates) of the holy city to their original look. He said due care of the aestheticity of the 18th century architecture must be taken while undertaking such preservation. Similarly, Qila Ahluwalia and Shivala Veer Bhan should also be restored. HS Walia, retired vice principal of DAV College and member of Amritsar Heritage Lovers Society, said cultural heritage is a vast ...

Little effort to develop Mansar Lake area 21.4.2018 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Mansar, April 20 The PDP-BJP government’s extensive tourism promotion for the state as a “dream destination” holds little meaning Mansar, where infrastructure craves for attention. Three years of the present dispensation has not helped in the development of tourism-related support structure in the Jammu region and the Mansar Lake is the perfect example of indifference. The lake and its surrounding area has a huge potential to divert lakhs of Mata Vaishno Devi-bound pilgrims but not much focus has been given to improve the services there in the past three decades. Locals say the jurisdiction of the lake area under multiple agencies — Surinsar Mansar Development Authority, Wildlife Department and Forest Department — has created a mess. “Off the four viewpoints constructed about four decades back, only two are functional and, that too, are dangerous for visitors as they are damaged. Other two are closed because the wooden planks are broken,” said Surinder Pal, a local villager. A ...
