Mehbooba invokes Vajpayee, calls for dialogue 25.4.2017 DNA: Top News
Jammu and Kashmir Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti on Monday implored Prime Minister Narendra Modi to pick up threads from where former PM Atal Bihari Vajpayee had left and contain 'motormouth' Bharatiya Janata Party ministers in Jammu and Kashmir coalition government to arrest the fast deteriorating situation in the Valley. Mehbooba's meeting with PM Modi and later Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh came against the backdrop of unprecedented scale of stone-pelting in the Valley and an equally worrisome backlash against Kashmiris, particularly students, living in other states. The vexed issue of Pakistan-based social media groups playing a dangerous role in instigating violence was also discussed threadbare in the meetings. Mehbooba said she would take up the issue with senior security officials in the meeting of the unified command in Srinagar on Tuesday. Sources close to the CM said that Modi was in sync with Mehbooba on most of the issues and told her that the solution to all the problems of the state ...

Coastal areas in Thiruvananthapuram cry for water kiosks 25.4.2017
Thiruvananthapuram: Unlike elsewhere, coastal areas bank heavily on public taps for water due to a low number of residential pipe connections. With no water in taps in the mornings, women and men stay awake at areas from Poonthura to Veli awaiting water at night. Since the force is weak, it takes a longer time to fill each pot and queues become longer. Valiyathura councillor Sheeba Patrick herself collected water for three days’ use by waking up at 1 am on Sunday. Bore well connections are present in some houses, but many cannot afford one. At certain areas of Vettucaud, residents say, borewells are not feasible due to the polluting presence of Travancore Titanium factory. “We are not protesting this time because we know the dams are running out, but we need a good number of water kiosks,” said Vettucaud councillor Mary Lilly Rajas. At Vettucaud, there is a severe scarcity of water in places like Balanagar, Madhavapuram and Beemapally areas where men folks roam around day and night with pots on their ...

Supply from Neyyar dam may begin in two weeks 25.4.2017
Thiruvananthapuram: The floating pumps to draw water out from Neyyar dam to Aruvikkara reservoir will arrive in the next 10 days and officials hope to begin the supply in two weeks. As per present calculations, there will be a requirement of around 1200 Million Litres of water from Neyyar to meet the supply. On good days, around 70 Million Litres per Day (MLD) were being drawn daily from Aruvikkara reservoir to meet the city’s requirements. The reservoir was replenished by Peppara dam daily. However, a shortfall has occurred due to the low level of water in Peppara dam. Now, two floating pumps of 180 HP each are expected to pump water from Kappukad area to a raised platform. From here water will be brought through 800mm pipes for a distance of 1.5 km to Ayanikadavu canal.  This canal which is around 7 km ends at a point on Karamana river a short distance upstream from Aruvikkara reservoir.  KWA officials had removed vegetation and made the canal ready for draining water. Dredging for laying pipes is in ...

Bengaluru: Bellandur Lake deweeding begins 25.4.2017
Bengaluru:  Civic bodies have been shaken out of their slumber after a scathing order from the National Green Tribunal (NGT), and have swung into action to save the dying Bellandur Lake. On Monday, the Bengaluru Development Authority (BDA), which is the custodian of the water body, said that deweeding has begun at the lake. P.N. Nayak, engineer member, Bengaluru Development Authority, told Deccan Chronicle, "We had invited tenders to deweed the entire lake. Harvesting Engineers Pvt Ltd has been awarded the contract for Rs 3.35 crore." On the timeframe to complete the work, he said, "It is not an easy task to weed out the entire lake. It takes 6-7 months to complete the task, but we have asked the contractor to get the work done in at least four months." While this was the official claim, Elangovan, a resident of Bellandur, said that deweeding did not begin on Monday. KSPCB yet to receive NGT order copy Six days after the National Green Tribunal ordered civic bodies to shut industries polluting Bellandur ...

Jhelum poses flood threat, but dredging deadlines not met 25.4.2017 The Tribune
Tribune News Service Jammu, April 24 With only 1.20 lakh cubic feet dredging having been done in the Jhelum so far against the targeted 17 lakh cubic feet, the river can again cause the havoc that it did in September 2014. The dredging of the river, which had overflown and breached its banks on the night of September 6 and 7, 2014, drowning almost half of the summer capital, should have been completed by December 2015. The Centre had released the funds for the purpose but the political and administrative lethargy combined with corruption at high levels has once again placed Kashmir at the mercy of weather gods, official sources told The Tribune. Twice this year, the Jhelum threatened to repeat the horrifying scenes of 2014. Chief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has time and again impressed upon the authorities and engineers to speed up the dredging work so that the Valley is not faced with floods yet again but her directions seem to have fallen on deaf ears as the authorities are still working at a slow ...

Stay healthy, stay cool! 25.4.2017
Global warming is not just another topic at environment seminars. We are experiencing the climatic changes that are heating up the planet and summers getting longer and hotter. Dr K. Hari Prasad, M.D., President, Hospital Division, Apollo Hospitals, tells us about combating heat, knowing what a heat stroke is and maintaining a healthy and cool lifestyle this summer. Our Body: A Natural Thermostat An internal mechanism in the human body acts as a thermostat, with the ability to adapt to increases or decreases in environmental temperatures. Only when the temperatures outside go up significantly does this mechanism fail and thus the harmful effects of high temperatures start manifesting. As the body temperature increases, the inbuilt thermostatic mechanisms in the body get overwhelmed and the circulatory system and central nervous system are the most commonly affected systems in the body. It is not just the temperature, but the heat accompanied by humidity that makes it dangerous. The body compensates for ...
