Charlottesville to cover Confederate statues after chaotic meeting 23.8.2017 The Tribune
Chapel Hill, N.C./ Milwaukee, August 22 City councilors in Charlottesville, Virginia, voted unanimously on Tuesday to cover two statues of Confederate war heroes in black fabric after ejecting spectators from a chaotic council meeting as residents demanded answers over how a recent white nationalist rally turned deadly. Many activists and local residents crowded into the meeting, which began late Monday and spilled into the wee hours of Tuesday. It was the first council meeting since the August 12 rally, when a car plowed into a group of counter-protesters and killed a 32-year-old woman. Many at the meeting shouted at the councilors and Mayor Mike Signer, forcing them at one point to leave the chamber. Videos posted on social media showed some in the crowd yelling “shame” and “shut it down” and calling for Signer’s resignation. A photo online showed two people holding a sign that read “Blood On Your Hands” behind the council seats. When council members returned to the chamber after spectators were ...

Anantapur: Treasured piece of heritage vandalised 23.8.2017
Anantapur: Centuries old historic Ratimancham (a cot carved with hard stone) of Vijayanagara empire located on the hills of Veerapuram village in Gummagatta mandal had lost shape after miscreants damaged its legs expecting diamonds studded in the stone cot. However, the villagers care about the Ratimancham as it is  a sentiment for many. The historic cot familiar as Muthyappa Mancham is located near a  small hill on the outskirts of Veerapuram village in Gummagatta mandal in the district. The Veerapuram area was also influenced by the Jain culture along with other parts like Amarapuram, Penukonda and Rayadurgam in the district. A big cot was carved out five centuries ago with attractive features and sculpture. If the stone cot was just any other cot to attract tourists, there would be nothing interesting about it.  But, this particular cot has been considered a treasure, holds a sentimental value  and is known to provide solutions to many. The Mutyhapu Mancham was supposed to bless ...

Heritage buildings await facelift 23.8.2017
Chennai: Chennai, with historically rich records dating from the British era, houses about 2,500 heritage buildings— the highest within any metropolitan area limits in India. While some structures still boast fine Indo-Saracenic architecture, most are in a dilapidated condition due to urbanisation and poor maintenance. Apart from being evidence of history and places of validation, over the course of time, some have also become alternative spaces of habitation including Ripon buildings, Triplicane police station, LIC building in Parry"s and many other places. A special division, the Building Centre and Conservation Division (BCCD) was created in the public works department (PWD) recently to conserve structures. "The 246-year-old Humayun Mahal in Chepauk palace will soon get a facelift. This will be followed by at least 50 other monuments," said an official of PWD. Another heritage committee of the Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority (CMDA) put forth over 250 applications in ...
