Of an alluring Jain centre 8.2.2016 Deccan Herald - Supplements
We headed out 135km from Bengaluru on State Highway 17 before hitting village roads. The route is charmingly pastoral as we make our way through the narrow alleyways to reach Kambadahalli village in Mandya district. The village is 18 km away from the famed Jain pilgrim centre of Shravanabelagola. A giant pillar on a raised platform greets us at the village centre, to the left of which is the place of our visit — Panchakuta Basadi. Kambadahalli (earlier known as Kambapuri), derives its name from the huge Manasthamba or Brahmadeva pillar that dominates the village. The 57-feet-high pillar, considered to be one among very few high-raised pillars in ancient South India, stands on an octagonal base. Tiers of floral motifs adorn its well-crafted shaft. The pillar top has a square platform that holds aloft the seated image of Brahma Yaksha. The outer corners of the platform are embellished with hanging bells. According to local folklore, the bells do not chime or even so much as tinkle even during fierce ...

IISc scientists develop sensor to detect e-coli bacterium 8.2.2016 deccanherald.com
A group of scientists at the Indian Institute of Science (IISc) has successfully designed a sensor to detect the presence of harmful e-coli bacterium in food and drinking water. The sensor has been designed by the research teams of Dr Sai Siva Gorthi and Prof Sundarrajan Asokan of Department of Instrumentation and Applied Physics and Robert Bosch Centre for Cyber Physical Systems, IISc. The sensor is designed using a photo-sensitive optical fibre and is called a 'bare Fiber Bragg grating (bFBG) sensor', which is coated with antibodies specific to e-coli. When a beam of light comprising a band of wavelengths is passed through the bFBG sensor, it reflects one particular wavelength of light. When exposed to a sample in which e-coli cells are present, the e-coli cells bind specifically to the sensor. Model to predict monsoon Scientists at IISc have also proposed a new model to detect rainfall over localized land regions in real-time using satellite images. Dr J Indu and Prof D Nagesh Kumar of Department of ...
