Hawksbill Turtle caught in net released into sea, Bandra Police clueless about intention 27.6.2018 DNA: India
A viral image of two people carrying a rare, endangered hawksbill turtle stuck in near Bandstand has prompted animal activists to write to the Mangrove Cell as well as the Bandra Police Station to conduct a detailed inquiry. Pawan Sharma, Honorary Wildlife Warden for Thane, said he received two images showing two people carrying a turtle, which was later identified as a hawksbill. An alert citizen had sent the images to fellow activists as well as Mangrove Cell officials. "The citizen who informed us of the incident had asked the duo why they are not releasing the turtle. They, however, were curt, and asked him not to interfere," he said. Mangrove Cell officials claimed that their ground staff informed that the turtle was released back into the sea but "there is still no clarity as to why they were carrying it away in the first place", said a senior official. Meanwhile, Sunish Subramanian Kunju, Wildlife Warden for Mumbai, visited the spot and also lodged an official complaint at the Bandra Police ...

DNA Jaipur 10th Anniversary: No more typifying Rajasthan, we have changed 23.6.2018 DNA: Opinion
Adecade is not even a drop in the ocean of history and heritage; cultures and communities; sights and sounds that make up our state. Change is inevitable in an increasingly connected world. Our Rajasthan, too has been undergoing a metamorphosis. The ghunghat is being replaced. Manju Devi, a porter in Jaipur station has broken into a very male bastion. So has Meera Bai Meena who repairs handpumps in hamlets nestled in the hills of Udaipur. The travails and triumphs of Rupa Yadav, a child bride who is now pursuing her MBBS, exemplifies the change in mindsets. I see a difference in every sector. It was the women of the state who campaigned to make the state free of open defecation. Village Wildlife Watchers, unread in most part and volunteers at that, use Whatsapp to monitor wild animals in their charge. Today, Rajasthan has institutions of National repute – IIT, IIM, AIIMS, National Law School. Youth from Rajasthan are acquiring skills that make them employable. Just running after a degree has become a ...
