Pollution killed 2.5mn in India: Lancet study 20.10.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
India has had most number of pollution-related deaths in the world in 2015, even more than the sub-Saharan countries, reveals the latest report published in the medical journal The Lancet. According to the report, 2.51 million premature deaths were reported in the country due to diseases linked to air, water and other forms of pollution. India accounted for about 28 per cent of an estimated 9 million pollution-linked deaths worldwide in 2015, the study found. It also topped the list of deaths linked to polluted air (1.81 million) and water (0.64 million). China, with 1.8 million pollution-linked deaths in 2015, followed India on The Lancet list.

The pollution risk factors examined by the Commission were air pollution: household air pollution, and ambient fine particulate ...

Rain dampens festive mood in WB 20.10.2017 Deccan Herald - National
Heavy showers in the metropolis and Gangetic West Bengal since late Thursday night spoiled the festivities of Bhaiphonta (Bhai Dooj), with weathermen forecasting rain across the region till Saturday. Strong winds coupled with frequent heavy showers since Thursday afternoon, triggered by a depression off the Odisha coast, also washed away much of the Kali puja and Deepavali festivities. A number of community Kali puja pandals in Howrah, Hooghly, Naihati, Barrackpore and Madhyamgram in North 24 Parganas and several places in South 24 Parganas districts were damaged due to the strong winds and heavy showers. In East Midnapore district, a key bridge linking the seaside tourist destinations of Shankarpur and Tajpur collapsed due to strong waves and a surge in the Bay of Bengal. Overflowing sea waters have inundated large parts of the Jamura-Shyampur village close to the bridge. District officials said efforts were continuing on war footing to repair the damaged bridge and stop water seepage. The regional ...

Melon mystique 20.10.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
My earliest watermelon memories have all taken place in or near water, I realised the other day. At summer camp in northern Wisconsin, there was watermelon cut in thick half-moon slices, which we ate sitting on the boat dock, spitting the seeds as far as we could, or swallowing some. The grown-ups said leaves would sprout out of our ears, but, of course, that never happened. There was also the greased watermelon that we used for the annual football game. Back at home, the ornately carved watermelon basket filled with melon-ball fruit salad was most memorable. There was also the watermelon, carried to the beach on a scorching hot day, that we devoured standing waist-deep in the waves. A salty hit I ate my childhood watermelon plain, unaware of alternatives. As an adult, though, I nearly always seek a salty component. In Mexico, I learned to eat it with hot red chilli and with salt and lime, too. Watermelon salad with sharp feta cheese and black olives was also alluring. Watermelon rind pickles beckoned, ...

Festivities leave river in a mess 20.10.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The banks of the sacred Saryu river, which had witnessed grand Deepavali celebrations in the presence of Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath barely two days ago, wears a different look now. As many as 1.87 lakh earthen lamps were lit, creating a world record.

For, the banks of the river, especially the Ram ki Paidi, which is thronged by thousands of devotees every day, is littered with diyas. The leftover mustard oil, used in the lamps, spilled over into the river waters.

"It was impossible to even walk along the banks. It was hard to imagine that barely a few hours ago a grand event had been organised here," a devotee said.

Pictures of the polluted Saryu banks went viral on social networking sites, inviting flak from the public. In response, Faizabad district officials said they would initiate action against the event organisers
