In a shocking incident, a temple in Hamirpur district of Uttar Pradesh was purified with ‘Gangajal’ and statues of deities were sent to Prayag for purification with Sangam holy water after a Dalit BJP woman MLA entered the temple. The Dalit BJP woman MLA from Raath, Manisha Anuragi had visited Muskara Khurd village in her assembly constituency on July 12 to attend a function. On the insistence of party workers, she visited the famous Dhrum Rishi temple in the village to offer prayers, not knowing that woman entry into the temple is banned. The temple is believed to be of Mahabharat era and entry to women devotees is banned for centuries. People believe that even if a woman touches the boundary wall of the temple, the area faces natural calamities like famine etc. “Due to an old belief, entry of women is banned inside the temple. They are allowed to pay obeisance from outside only without touching even its boundary walls,” pointed a visibly upset villager. During her visit inside the temple, the Dalit BJP ...

Shedhi canal repairs still on, Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation to supply bore well water 11.7.2018 DNA: India
Starting this summer, the city stopped receiving a 200 MLD water supply from Shedhi canal. There was reportedly a breach in the canal, and due to the ongoing repair work, water supply can only be resumed by June end. To compensate for this water shortage, the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) continued acquiring water from bore wells. For one more month, the AMC will have to resort to groundwater for supplies. For this, the civic body is going to fetch water for 12 hours continuously. "Supply from the Shedhi canal has been delayed further by a month. So we have to depend on water from bore wells for that month. Shedhi canal is the main source of water for the Raska water treatment plant. From Raska treatment plant, AMC gets 250 MLD water," said a senior civic body official. "Constant use of groundwater has pushed the water level down from 15 feet to 18 feet. Due to delay in the onset of monsoons, the situation is likely to get worse if we continue extracting groundwater," said a civic official. In ...

Karnal’s institutes grow vegetables without soil 7.7.2018 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Karnal, July 6 No cultivation of vegetables in saline, alkaline and sandy soil will be a thing of the past as the Indo-Israel Centre of Excellence for Vegetables (CEV) in Gharaunda and Potato Technology Centre (PTC) in Shamgarh are getting good results of soilless cultivation technique for producing vegetables. As per data, 3,15,617 hectares are affected with salinity and alkalinity (sodic) in Haryana. Of these, 1,45,054 hectares are saline while 1,70,563 hectares are sodic.

Coco-pit can be used separately, without vermiculite and perlite, as soilless media. But the combination of the trio gives better environment for plant roots, says an expert of the CEV.

Non-chlorinated water supply irks residents 5.7.2018 The Tribune
Kuldip Bhatia Ludhiana, July 4 There seems to be no end to the woes of residents in Shaheed Bhagat Singh Nagar, a 475 acre colony developed by the Ludhiana Improvement Trust (LIT) on Pakhowal Road here. After persistent complaints of roads and streets lying in a state of utter neglect, erratic street lights and poor urban infrastructure in the colony, now, the instances of supply of unsafe drinking water have come to the fore. Residents of the colony lament that most of the tube wells and submersible pumps installed in different blocks of the colony were supplying non-chlorinated water which exposed them to serious health risk and could lead to outbreak of water-borne diseases – most common during the ongoing rainy season. Several residents, including those from D, F, G and H Blocks, claimed that during their random visits to the tube well rooms in these blocks, they found that either the chlorination plants were non-operational or the drums, where chlorine was stored and mixed into tube well water, were ...
