On December 31 2020, the newsrack service will be shut down permanently.

It has been a nice long run from the Sarai days in 2004 to being hosted on its own domain around 2006. Beside maintenance, there has been no real active development on the code or the features since early 2008. Since 2015, even all that maintenance was pretty bare bones. A lot of news sources no longer provide reliable RSS feeds and since mid 2018, there were growing issues with the service and I only kept it alive to assist a handful of users.

So, it is time to shut this down. The internet world in 2020 is vastly differently from 2003 when I first conceptualized this service. Thanks for using this all these years.

Cascades call in Kerala 30.9.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
A trip to Kerala opened my eyes to the serene beauty of North Kerala and also the death knell rung by the controversial Athirappilly hydel project where the public electricity utility in Kerala proposes to set up a hydroelectric dam on the Chalakudy river, above the falls. All hell broke loose with the board trying to beat a deadline set by the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate, by setting up a transformer near their project office. The construction of the dam has been on the anvil since the 90s, and has been "on hold", thanks to the efforts of multiple environmental groups. Athirappilly Falls, which stand approximately 80-feet tall and 330-feet wide, is on the west-flowing Chalakudy river. The river originates in the Western Ghats and flows 145 km to meet the Arabian Sea. The river flows placidly for a good while but becomes turbulent near Athirappilly where it surges around big rocks and cascades into separate roaring falls. The waterfalls are surrounded by dense jungles, which are home to ...
