'Nature doesn't divide, doesn't discriminate': Dia Mirza on World Environment Day 5.6.2018 DNA: Money
Lamenting inadequate representation of environmental causes in cinema, actor and sustainability advocate Dia Mirza said she is aiming to produce and star in films based on such themes, as she underlined that the narrative of nature has to find a "more mainstream context" in all forms of media communication. Speaking on World Environment Day , Dia Mirza , who has her own production house, said, "She was currently engaging scripts on that theme." The actor, who was appointed the UN Environment's Goodwill Ambassador for India last year, said, while she "prided" herself in belonging to a film industry that has shown a lot of empathy for many causes and many great actors have been the face of huge social campaigns, from polio immunisation to HIV infection awareness, "there have not been many takers when it comes to environmental causes".

Cut down on water guzzling wheat crops: World Bank to Rajasthan govt 4.6.2018 DNA: India
A recent report of the World Bank has proposed the state government to demotivate cultivation of wheat and other water-intensive crops. The report though commends the efforts made by the state towards poverty reduction. The report holds that low power tariff for agriculture and price incentives for wheat have contributed to cultivation of ‘water guzzling’ crops thus adversely affecting water sustainability and narrowing fiscal space.  “The report proposes that Rajasthan reduces its dependency on wheat and water-intensive crops and transition to crops such as guar, barley, pear, millet, spices, psyllium husk and oranges,” reads the report.  In the directive, suggestions have been made for rationalisation of minimum support price (MSP) and extending incentives to high-potential crops by inclusion of factors of water sustainability and nutrition value. As the issue requires decision from the central government, the state government has been asked to propose for the change.  The report has been drafted by ...
