Lost recipes 18.11.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
UPPER REACHES OF UTTARAKHAND Garhwal, the hilly region of Uttarakhand, is said to be quite proactive in preserving continuing use of organic and traditional seeds and grains in India. And the people take pride in their home-grown produce. So it's common to come across people, including in towns such as Dehradun, who like to tend to their kitchen gardens or grow greens on their window sills. "The shift in their food choices therefore is not huge. Even so, there are a few food items that are fading out," says Rushina Munshaw Ghildiyal, who began archiving Garhwali recipes nearly two decades ago. "Packaged snacks such Maggi noodles and Kurkure are aspirational foods. They are marketed so well that even people in areas affected by malnutrition prefer to spend on these than on nutrition-rich food." With Punjabis having settled in tourist hotspots such as Mussoorie, the community's food too has wielded an influence in the region. The traditional mandua ki roti or the earthy millet porridge called paleu have ...

24 sites to have sensors under hydro project 18.11.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Chandigarh, November 17 Nineteen sites have been identified for setting up a system to monitor water discharge in rivers and streams of Punjab under the National Hydrology Project (NHP), besides five sites where automatic weather stations (AWS) would be installed. It is envisaged that the NHP will improve reservoir operations by providing optimal dam filling and release schedules through timely and reliable data acquisition, storage, collation and management of water resources. This would result in releasing greater quantities of water for hydroelectric power generation, irrigation, drinking and industrial supply. According to studies, additional hydroelectric power generation from the NHP in Punjab is expected to be around 40 MW, resulting in an annual incremental benefit of Rs11.8 crore. The additional availability of water for irrigation, drinking and industrial production is assumed to be 4.7, 0.5 and 5.1 million cubic metres, respectively, with a combined annual incremental ...

Toxic Algae: Once a nuisance, now a severe nationwide threat 17.11.2017
Competing in a bass fishing tournament two years ago, Todd Steele cast his rod from his 21-foot motorboat - unaware that he was being poisoned. A thick, green scum coated western Lake Erie. And Steele, a semipro angler, was sickened by it. Driving home to Port Huron, Michigan, he felt light-headed, nauseous. By the next morning, he was too dizzy to stand, his overheated body covered with painful hives. Hospital tests blamed toxic algae, a rising threat to US waters. "It attacked my immune system and shut down my body's ability to sweat," Steele said. "If I wasn't a healthy 51-year-old and had some type of medical condition, it could have killed me." He recovered, but Lake Erie hasn't. Nor have other waterways choked with algae that are sickening people, killing animals and hammering the economy. The scourge is escalating from occasional nuisance to severe, widespread hazard, overwhelming government efforts to curb a leading cause: fertilizer runoff from farms. Pungent, ...

Lack of education and jobs buried hopes of many village youth 17.11.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
About 2,300 odd natives of two backward villages in Nandod constituency of Narmada district are eagerly waiting for the elections to get over. Immediately after exercising their electoral right on December 9, about 35 to 40% men and women of these two villages will migrate to Bharuch and Ankleshwar join work in the construction sector and chemical factories. Their only hope, return home with some savings on Holi. The unfortunate ones will head to nearby Rajpipla to work as labourers in the farms of affluent Patidars. A handful of the fortunate ones will harvest crops of Tuvar and Peanuts, fetching them some respite. "We should be moving now as there is nothing to do here. The farms have dried up. There is no facility to irrigate except rains. But, elections ensure good food and some other benefits for four to five days," says Suresh Dalsukh Vasava, a marginal farmer in Palsi. However, there are many who stay back in the village to cast their vote. Last Sunday, Gujarat Chief Minister Vijay Rupani had ...

Rajahmundry: A large delegation comprising an MP, six Cabinet ministers, 60 legislators and 15 members of the Legislative Council visited the Polavaram irrigation project and Pattiseema lift scheme and inquired about the execution and functioning of various components of the projects. They appreciated Chief Minister N. Chandrababu Naidu for taking up the projects for the benefit of the people in the state. Though the delegation was expected to arrive from Vijayawada at about 10.15 am at Pattiseema on Thursday, it was delayed by several  hours as the legislators halted at a few places on the way.
