Forest department pushing for inclusion of Gundia in Pushpagiri Wildlife Sanctu 16.9.2014 deccanherald.com
The Forest department is quietly pushing the State government to approve the extension of Pushpagiri Wildlife Sanctuary (PWS) and include Gundia basin in it so that the area is better protected from commercial exploitation. According to Forest department officials, the primary reason for the move is that it has been over three years since the Central government gave, in principal, clearance for expanding the PWS and include Gundia into it. And the most important reason is to stop any hydro projects from coming up there in future, especially after the Centre has approved the Kasturirangan report. "The Madhav Gadgil report had stated that no works can take place in and around the pristine Western Ghats. But the Kasturirangan report states that hydro projects may be permitted if 30 per cent of the water flow is maintained during lean season so that marine wildlife is not affected. The Kasturirangan report had opened the window for projects, which can be misused. Though all proposals go through the State ...

'Kashmiri family gave us their only bottle of water' 15.9.2014 deccanherald.com
For Geetha Ramanan, a Bangalorean who, along with her family, was stranded for over a week in the flood-ravaged Kashmir Valley, the safe return home would not have been possible but for the extraordinary hospitality and humaneness shown by the local people. After returning to Bangalore on Saturday, Ramanan recounted to Deccan Herald how she and her family spent their days in the Valley during the unprecedented tragedy. After reaching the Valley, the family spent two days in a house boat and had planned to go sightseeing in Srinagar thereafter. In the meanwhile, drizzle turned into a downpour which quickly caused major rivers in the Valley to breach, leading to flooding. Before long, they were confined to their hotel in Srinagar. The family's plan of leaving Srinagar for Pahalgam on September 5 was dealt a decisive blow. "We were stranded in the hotel for a good seven days," Ramanan recalled, especially mentioning the hospitality of the staff at Heevan Hotel. The hotel staff left no stone unturned to make ...

This family starved for three days, slept on terrace 15.9.2014 deccanherald.com
A family from Bangalore had to wait for more than a week to return to the City from the flood-hit Kashmir due to the mad rush at the helipad and airport in Srinagar. The residents from Shantinagar managed to leave the boat house in which they were staying in the nick of time, before it submerged in water. They starved for three days and slept on terraces, before they were airlifted to the Air Force station in Srinagar. Stanley Bhasme, along with 30 others, landed in Srinagar on September 5. They were staying on the third floor of the boat house in Dal Lake before water gushed in and filled two floors. With the help of a few Kashmiris, they were ferried to a safer location. After this, they walked eight kilometres to reach the helipad at the Raj Bhavan. "It was a mad rush at the helipad, with Army men caning the crowd. There were over 80,000 people waiting to be airlifted to the airport," said Bhasme. In search of food and shelter, the family walked another three km to find a place to stay till the crowd ...
