Sivagami mini series in the offing 19.8.2017

The success of Baahubali has triggered a great deal of interest and many are keen to know what project producer Shobhu Yarlagadda and his partner Prasad Devineni are doing next. Several others have also been asking if the franchise will have a third part.

Though it has been made clear on several occasions that the film series has ended, Shobu, while taking a class on ‘Indian Folklore to Celluloid’ at the Indian Film Festival of Melbourne, shared, “If we find a good story for Baahubali, we will do it. But not just for the sake of it.”

Talking about a mini TV series, which the team is coming up with, based on the book ‘Rise of Sivagami’, he shared, “This live action series will be made on a huge scale. It will revolve around Sivagami’s rise to power. All the famous characters will be there, but in their younger days. The cast will obviously be different.”

Two discoms don't work: AIPEF 19.8.2017
Hyderabad: Small, according to power engineers, is not beautiful. The All-India Power Engineers Federation (AIPEF) has found that the system of having multiple electricity distribution companies (discoms) in a state has failed. The slogan of "one state one discom" is gaining ground. The federation study found that the argument that smaller discoms would be more efficient and better managed had not been proved to be correct. There was no uniformity in the structure of state power utilities. Federation chairman Shailendra Dubey said the Centre should integrate the power sector in all states combining generation, distribution and transmission under one integrated company. Multiple discoms with their separate boards of directors create coordination and inter-organisational problems, the study found. The other argument for having multiple discoms, that it would create competition and peer pressure to improve performance, has not been borne out if the transmission & distribution (T&D) ...
