Set for jumbo ‘tusk’ 10.12.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
Amber Fort and elephant rides are synonymous with each other. Every visitor coming to Jaipur wants to come to Amber and take an elephant ride. Therefore, to improve the condition of these elephants, their abode ‘Hathi Gaon’ has been given a makeover.  The gaon has now been made into another tourist attraction with developmental works being done by Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) and the department of forest.  Notably, the place is world famous for elephants and it is from Hathi Gaon that the elephants are brought to Amber Fort for the rides. There are about 113 elephants in this village.The place acts as a natural habitat for elephants and since long it was lying ignored and unkempt. But of late, things have changed for better. The village was been spruced up and now one cannot only make online booking for elephant rides,  but can also stay here in the refurbished guest house. The makeover  has been done by JDA with a budget of Rs 3.85 crore. The shelters of elephants have been scrubbed off and have ...

Crowdsourcing heritage list, the democratic way 6.12.2017 deccanherald.com
Citizens identify and compile a comprehensive list of heritage buildings, structures and traditions in every BBMP ward. The list then gets filtered, analysed and routed to the state government for formulating a planned heritage conservation strategy. This is the big idea behind a new public campaign slowly gaining traction, both offline and online. Conceptualised as part of the #HeritageBeku campaign, this crowdsourcing initiative is about democratising heritage conservation, a bottom-up approach. "Unless you have lived in a particular place/ward, you will never notice the heritage value of the location. It could be a building, a tree, a lake or even a location rooted in local history," explains civic activist Priya Chetty-Rajagopal.

"The plan is to get citizens who want to be on the ward committees lead ...
