The protest by anganwadi workers continued on Wednesday with dramatic moments as nine of the agitating workers suffered health problems.

Kavita, a 28-year-old anganwadi worker from Shiraguppa, Ballari, was carried by the police for treatment. The doctors at the hospital said the nine agitators were treated as outpatients.

Summer's here, city braces for water, power woes 22.3.2017 deccanherald.com
This summer, India Meteorological Department has forecast a further rise in temperature with periodic thundershowers in Bengaluru and parts of south interior Karnataka. The city on Wednesday recorded a maximum of 34° Celsius, against 33.6° Celsius on Tuesday and 36° Celsius on Sunday. Sundar M Metri, director-in-charge, IMD-Bengaluru, told DH cloudy skies and thundershowers are expected in the coming days. "When humidity increases and there is moisture in the air, clouds are formed, which lead to thundershowers. After that, the temperature starts to soar again," he explained. He said the discomfort is due to dry weather and lack of wind. While the humidity level is 49%, wind speed is three knots. Increasing concretisation is also causing a slight increase in temperature, he said. Though the energy department claims that there is sufficient power to meet the summer needs, Bangalore Electricity Supply Company (Bescom) officials warn of power cuts due to maintenance work.

Prisoners in paradise 22.3.2017 Deccan Herald - Opinion
Walk your way to health, any age, any time, any place. Get going, keep moving, be active, shake it all about...boogie, boogie, boogie. 'That's what it is all about to take care of your small aches and pains,' is the age old advise for couch potatoes. How true! Walking is the best and the most economical activity for all movable living organisms to maintain pink of health. However, in 'namma' Bengaluru, we can only talk the walk as an ideal outdoor exercise sitting at home, and not talk while we walk because we need to keep concentrating on the hurdles that jump at us the moment we step out. Many parks and green spaces have sprung up in various localities, but to reach that ideal space and return home safely is a trip you undertake at your own risk. It is needless to elaborate on the dangers that lurk at every step — morning, noon and night. Not a day passes without the horrific news of falling trees, swarming bees, two-wheelers hit-and-run and predators prowling free, forbidding us a walk in gay ...

HC refuses to stay shifting of RGUHS to Ramanagaram 21.3.2017 deccanherald.com
The Karnataka High Court on Tuesday refused to stay the shifting of the Rajiv Gandhi University of Health Sciences (RGUHS) to Ramanagaram.

Hearing a petition filed by Dr B R Ramakrishna, principal, Sushrutha Ayurvedic Medical College and Hospital and others, Justice A S Bopanna directed RGUHS and the state government to file their objections.

Counsel representing RGUHS filed a memo stating that the university will only be shifting the engineering section and not the entire university. The counsel said that the shifting will be carried out in a phased manner without affecting students.

The government counsel said that shifting of RGUHS is a policy decision and the discretion of the government. The decision was taken in 2007, but could not be executed due to various reasons. RGUHS headquarters is Ramanagaram according to the provisions of the University Act. The petitioners have sought directions to recognise RGUHS at Bengaluru as an additional campus.

Govt to study ill-effects of ajinomoto 20.3.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The government will take up a study to decide whether flavour enhancer monosodium glutamate (ajinomoto) could be banned, Health and Family Welfare Minister Ramesh Kumar informed the Council on Monday.
