On December 31 2020, the newsrack service will be shut down permanently.

It has been a nice long run from the Sarai days in 2004 to being hosted on its own domain around 2006. Beside maintenance, there has been no real active development on the code or the features since early 2008. Since 2015, even all that maintenance was pretty bare bones. A lot of news sources no longer provide reliable RSS feeds and since mid 2018, there were growing issues with the service and I only kept it alive to assist a handful of users.

So, it is time to shut this down. The internet world in 2020 is vastly differently from 2003 when I first conceptualized this service. Thanks for using this all these years.

Indo-Nepal dam faces uncertain future 30.1.2018 Deccan Herald - Opinion
A 5,600 MW power project along the Mahakali river, which flows between Nepal and Uttarakhand is yet another sub-Himalayan hydropower project causing a great deal of concern, not only among over 30,000 affected families but also environmentalists, social activists and others. The current agitation against this huge hydropower dam is a reminder of the previous such agitations against dams that have already been built in Uttarakhand in the central Himalayas, such as the 2,400 MW Tehri dam, which continues to face stiff problems even years after its commissioning. The uprooted local people complain about not having been adequately compensated even to this day. The Pancheshwar dam, which is to be built on the Mahakali will be one of the tallest dams in the world. Flowing from Nepal through Uttarakhand, the river enters Uttar Pradesh, flowing south-east across the plains to join the Ghaghra river, a tributary of the Ganga. It descends from 11,800 feet at Kalapani to 660 feet as it enters the Terai plains, ...
