Is China behind the Brahmaputra turning black? 15.12.2017
On March 1, 2012, the Siang river went dry at Pasighat, the headquarters of Arunachal Pradesh"s East Siang district, on the Chinese border. Three years earlier, on June 9, 2009, the same town of Pasighat saw floods like never before. The Siang was in spate and the floodwaters rose up to 30 metres, submerging almost the entire town. And now, the same Siang river is full of slag, making its water so turbid that the authorities in the frontier state have declared it unfit for human consumption after tests in laboratories. The impact is also being felt on aquatic life with fishes dying or disappearing, perhaps into clearer waters somewhere. It"s a good time to find out what"s going on in the Siang, and whodunnit! We"re talking about the Siang because it originates in the Tibetan Himalayas as the Yarlung Tsangbo, enters Arunachal Pradesh at the "great bend", flows down into the Assam plains as the Brahmaputra and empties into the Bay of Bengal via Bangladesh, where it flows ...

Low-key 67th birthday for Rajinikanth 13.12.2017
Till recently, superstar Rajinikanth"s birthday was synonymous with massive celebrations. The actor used to come out of his Poes Garden residence in Chennai to greet thousands of fans who thronged the place, and waved to them. But for the last few years, the actor has requested his fans not to celebrate his birthday in an extravagant manner for various reasons. If former Tamil Nadu Chief Minister J. Jayalalithaa"s demise made him refrain from celebrations last year, a year before that, it was the Chennai floods that made Rajini call off his birthday celebrations. This year too, the superstar, who turned 67 on Tuesday, reportedly opted for a low-key birthday following Cyclone Ochkhi, in which many fishermen are missing and some of them dead. The star was not spotted at his Poes Garden residence and the buzz was that he left the house as early as 4 am to an undisclosed destination. Sources said he was resting at his farmhouse on the outskirts of Chennai. However, fans of the superstar and the ...

Bhuntar bridge opens to traffic 13.12.2017 The Tribune
Our Correspondent KULLU, DECEMBER 12 Kullu Deputy Commissioner Yunus said that repair of bailey bridge at Bhuntar had been completed on schedule and the bridge was thrown open for traffic yesterday. The bridge linked the Kullu-Manali National Highway and the Bhuntar-Manikaran road. The concrete bridge was washed away in 1995 floods and most of the traffic to and from Manali was passing through the old bailey bridge as it is the only link for Kullu bypass road. The narrow passage enabled only one heavy vehicle to pass at a time resulting in the area witnessing frequent traffic jams. Besides, damage was caused beyond repair by a big truck carrying heavy machinery in 2008. The residents of Parla Bhuntar were relieved as earlier they had to travel long distance to reach the other side of the Bhuntar town. The problem of traffic jams in Kullu town would also be reduced as heavy traffic would be diverted through new bailey bridge at ...
