They release directions and orders to save the river but no major changes can be seen. Garbage and waste has surfaced on the Tawi bed as the water level of the river has receded, but the campaigners for the river preservation are nowhere in sight.

Travel: Connect with the nature with New Zealand tourism 17.12.2017 sunday mid day
A newspaper, on most days, any journalist will tell you, reflects the deepest concerns of the society it's printed for. So, while Mumbai may be obsessed with every little pothole that appears, Delhi is currently going to be bothered with air pollution. Which is why, when you read a headline that says, Town 'crawling' with rabbits, on the front page of Otago Daily Times, you can suspect that it's about more than just a lazy news day.
