In UP's Meerut, Dalits threaten to embrace Islam after being denied entry into local temple 1.8.2018 DNA: Wide Angle
Days after Hamirpur temple purification incident , a large number of Dalits in Uttar Pradesh’s Meerut district have threatened to embrace Islam after being denied entry into a Hindu temple to offer prayers. The incident was reported from Panchgaon Patti village in Meerut. A few Dalit women, belonging to Valmiki Samaj, had gone to a 50-year-old temple to offer prayers on Sunday but they were denied entry by the priest on the ground that Dalits were not allowed to pray in the temple. “Women were told that they are Dalits not Hindus and will not be allowed to offer prayers at a Hindu temple. They may go to their own Valmiki temples,” alleged Deepak Valmiki.  Another villager Satish Valmiki said that the order to deny entry to Dalits in the temple was enforced when a new priest joined a few months ago. “We were going to the temple earlier but now the new priest does not allow us to offer prayers there,” alleged Valmiki. When a Dalits in the village tried to reason out with the priest, he abused and ...

UP temple purified with Gangajal after visit of Dalit woman BJP MLA 30.7.2018 DNA: India
In a shocking incident, a temple in Hamirpur district of Uttar Pradesh was purified with ‘Gangajal’ and statues of deities were sent to Prayag for purification with Sangam holy water after a Dalit BJP woman MLA entered the temple. The Dalit BJP woman MLA from Raath, Manisha Anuragi had visited Muskara Khurd village in her assembly constituency on July 12 to attend a function. On the insistence of party workers, she visited the famous Dhrum Rishi temple in the village to offer prayers, not knowing that woman entry into the temple is banned. The temple is believed to be of Mahabharat era and entry to women devotees is banned for centuries. People believe that even if a woman touches the boundary wall of the temple, the area faces natural calamities like famine etc. “Due to an old belief, entry of women is banned inside the temple. They are allowed to pay obeisance from outside only without touching even its boundary walls,” pointed a visibly upset villager. During her visit inside the temple, the Dalit BJP ...

Dholera: Weather conditions to push solar power price higher 21.7.2018 DNA: Top News
Challenging weather conditions in Dholera, where 5,000 MW solar power projects with an investment of Rs25,000 crore are planned, are expected to increase the cost of power, two senior officials who are connected with the projects, said. Raj Gopal, principal secretary of state energy and petrochemicals department, said that the terrain in Dholera is challenging, with high salinity level, and corrosive air. Moreover, the CRZ area, where the solar park would come up, is inundated for three months every year. "Because of these conditions, we will need to use better quality materials." "The cost of civil works will be higher, and the cost of power will also be more," Raj Gopal told reporters on the sidelines of CII's Solar Conclave 2018. Jai Prakash Shivahare, CEO of Dholera Special Investment Region Development Authority, said that even after accounting for 50% higher cost of civil works, the power price, to be discovered through competitive bidding, is expected to be below Rs3 per unit.

Early Earth's oxygen levels rose, fell several times, claims new study 11.7.2018 DNA: Opinion
Earth's oxygen levels rose and fell more than once hundreds of millions of years before the planet-wide success of the Great Oxidation Event about 2.4 billion years ago, a study has found. The finding, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, may have implications in the search for life beyond Earth. Coming years will bring powerful new ground- and space-based telescopes able to analyse the atmospheres of distant planets, the researchers said. The work could help keep astronomers from unduly ruling out "false negatives," or inhabited planets that may not at first appear to be so due to undetectable oxygen levels, they said. "The production and destruction of oxygen in the ocean and atmosphere over time was a war with no evidence of a clear winner, until the Great Oxidation Event," said Matt Koehler, a doctoral student at the University of Washington in the US. The Great Oxidation Event was the biologically induced appearance of oxygen in the Earth's atmosphere around 2.45 ...

Shedhi canal repairs still on, Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation to supply bore well water 11.7.2018 DNA: India
Starting this summer, the city stopped receiving a 200 MLD water supply from Shedhi canal. There was reportedly a breach in the canal, and due to the ongoing repair work, water supply can only be resumed by June end. To compensate for this water shortage, the Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation (AMC) continued acquiring water from bore wells. For one more month, the AMC will have to resort to groundwater for supplies. For this, the civic body is going to fetch water for 12 hours continuously. "Supply from the Shedhi canal has been delayed further by a month. So we have to depend on water from bore wells for that month. Shedhi canal is the main source of water for the Raska water treatment plant. From Raska treatment plant, AMC gets 250 MLD water," said a senior civic body official. "Constant use of groundwater has pushed the water level down from 15 feet to 18 feet. Due to delay in the onset of monsoons, the situation is likely to get worse if we continue extracting groundwater," said a civic official. In ...
