Telangana: Stench, power issues see public toilets remain unused 19.11.2017
Hyderabad: Public toilets are turning out to be a waste of space because of the poor maintenance, say citizens of Telangana. Although the number of public toilets has increased in the city, their use has been limited.  Srinivas Rao, the deputy commissioner of Khairatabad, admitted, "We have five toilets in our circle, however, it is disappointing that they are not being used. We are renovating the toilets as they have not been maintained for long. We plan to hire a superintendent who can ensure that the surrounding areas are kept clean and that there is 24/7 power connection and water supply." Most citizens complain about the unbearable stench, erratic water and power supply. Meenakshi Sinha, a techie from Secunderabad, says, "Most public toilets do not have even lights switched on at night which is why people think that they are not functioning. The same goes for water.

Khaps demand relief for stubble management 19.11.2017 The Tribune
Chandigarh, November 18 Khap panchayats have sought compensation of Rs 2000 to Rs 2500 per acre for stubble management. They have also urged farmers to take steps for conservation of water and environment by judicious use of natural resources and planting more trees. Various khap representatives, who met in Jind district today, also urged farmers to grow alternative crops instead of wheat and paddy alone. Tek Ram Kandela, national convener of khap panchayats and head of the Kandela Khap, said, “Environment pollution by burning of paddy straw is a big issue and needs to be addressed. Farmers do not want to burn stubble, but they do not have any alternative.” He said that the khap panchayats had written to the Prime Minister for separate budget for compensating farmers. “The government also needs to divert farmers from the routine wheat-paddy crop cycle by providing subsidy on horticulture plants like guava, mangoes, papaya, lemons and berry, etc. This will not only provide solution to the problem of ...

Simple water test may help prevent bone disease in India 18.11.2017 The Tribune
London A simple colour-changing test to rapidly detect fluoride in drinking water may help prevent skeletal fluorosis, a crippling bone disease, in developing countries such as India, scientists said. While low amounts of fluoride are beneficial for healthy teeth, high levels of fluoride can weaken bones, leading to skeletal fluorosis, said researchers at the University of Bath in the UK. This disease causes crippling deformities of the spine and joints, especially in children whose skeletons are still forming, they said. When water passes over certain minerals, it can dissolve fluoride, which results in elevated levels of fluoride in drinking water sources in parts of India, East Africa, China and North America. Levels of fluoride in drinking water are routinely monitored and controlled at treatment works in developed countries. However, in areas where there is no piped water system or treatment works, people rely on drawing untreated water from wells, which can often be contaminated with higher than ...
