Mumbai Food: Andheri rooftop restaurant offers great food, warm service 15.12.2017 western suburbs
It's not often that we go to review a new restaurant and find ourselves on the waiting list, with six-odd people in line before us. But that's what happens when we arrive at RikÄ“ Terrace Bar and Grill, a new eatery located in a dimly lit bylane near Fun Republic in Andheri. Chicken Kebab An open terrace restaurant, Rike is quite literally a breath of fresh air. Relegated to the bar area, we sit atop high stools beneath the hanging wine glass racks and take in the ambience. The décor isn't crammed, with sufficient space between tables, and the crowd, much like the décor, is young, with 20-somethings dominating the scene. Baked potato bruschetta We sift through the food menu and order a baked potato bruschetta ('240; prices include service charge) from the Experiments with Potatoes section. The house fries ('240) are delivered within 15 minutes, by when we manage to get a table. The crispy fries are served in a mini commercial fryer, which shares space with three colourful dips on a wooden platter. It's ...

MLA P V Anwar's check dam to be demolished 12.12.2017
MALAPPURAM: The district disaster management authority headed by district collector Amit Meena on Monday ordered the demolition of a check dam illegally built at Cheenkannipali on Kakkadampoyil hills by a company partly owned by Mr P.V. Anwar MLA. The dam is part of the controversial park owned by the same company which is at the centre of a storm for the last few months for alleged constructions in the environmentally fragile area. The collector asked the land owner to demolish the illegal construction within two weeks, failing which the irrigation department will execute the order and realise the expenses from the land owner. A notice sent by the authority to the Vettilappara village authorities will be served on the land owners. The collector's order came after a report by the Perinthalmanna RDO K. Ajeesh on Friday saying that the construction was illegal. The report was based on a joint inspection carried out by the officers from the departments of geology, revenue, Kerala Water Authority ...

Paschimavahini project gets Cabinet nod 11.12.2017 Deccan Herald - News

The State Cabinet on Monday cleared the Paschimavahini project that proposes to build check-dams along west flowing rivers to meet the drinking water needs of the three coastal districts.

The entire project is estimated to cost Rs 1,394 crore of which Rs 200 crore for the first phase was approved by the cabinet.

Briefing reporters after the meeting, Law Minister T B Jayachandra said the project will meet the drinking water needs of 19 assembly constituencies in the districts of Uttara Kannada, Dakshina Kannada and Udupi especially in January-April.

Jayachandra said the project will also serve as a consolation to the people of coastal districts who were apprehensive that the Yettinahole project will divert their share of water to the districts of Tumkuru and Kolar.

Two cauvery barrage shutters damaged 10.12.2017
SALEM: Close on the heels of a shutter giving away at the KRP dam in Krishnagiri district, leading to a huge discharge of water in the South Pennar river, two shutters of a barrage across the Cauvery river near Edappadi in Salem district were damaged on Saturday, hitting electricity generation at Poolampatti Piruvu check dam.   Sources said that water began to gush out on Saturday morning as two shutters on the Cauvery barrage had developed a leak.  About ten-ft of water stored in the check dam drained out, following the damage.  While electricity generation is being done in a small scale at various check dams along the Cauvery river, the one at Poolampatti Pirivu not only supports hydro-electricity production, but also facilitates boat service between Poolampatti and Nerinjipettai. Following the damage to the shutters, the boating service was also stopped. Public Works Department (PWD) officials rushed to the spot and have begun to repair repairing the damaged ...

Underground water levels drop beyond 700 ft in DK district 7.12.2017 Deccan Herald - State
Though Dakshina Kannada (DK) in Karnataka is a district that gets an average of 3400 mm rainfall every monsoon, the underground water levels in the district have fallen by a record 700 feet this year.

Most of the rain water has flowed away into the sea and underwater levels in Belthangadi and Puttur taluks have sunk beyond 700 feet.

Because the sinking of the underground water table was noticed last year, a ban on digging new bore-wells was imposed and the rule was followed diligently by DK farmers. Yet the situation seems to have worsened.

Now the district administration has taken up measures to build check dams to stop the wastage of rain water and enrich the underground water levels.
