India needs one more big push for construction of ‘Big Dams’ 22.9.2017 DNA: Recent Columns
All rivers in India sustain a primary segment of landmass and support a huge population of human beings and animals. Rivers cater to our quintessential needs. Unfortunately, a substantial amount of fresh water from these rivers has been continuously being drained into seas, while several people in many parts of this country are still await water to quench their thirst. With the construction of Tehri Dam, availability of water has increased substantially in the river course especially during the lean period i.e. during November to June. In the case of Tehri, average water flow of 100 cumecs in the river course before impoundment of its reservoir which has now increased to an average of 200 cumecs after impoundment of Tehri reservoir. The positive impact that reservoirs have on vegetation, has been studied by the Department of Earth Sciences, University of Roorkee.

Expert panel extends clearance for Tehri project 23.6.2017 DNA: Top News
The Environment Ministry's Expert Appraisal Committee (EAC) on river valley and hydroelectric projects has recommended a three-year extension to the validity of the environmental clearance (EC) for the Vishnugad-Pipalkoti hydel project in Chamoli district. The EAC's recommendation, though, comes even as the National Green Tribunal's (NGT's) principal bench imposed a Rs 50-lakh environmental compensation in April on the project proponent Tehri Hydro Development Corporation (THDC) for illegal muck-dumping in the Alaknanda river. The Vishnugad-Pipalkoti hydel project is a 4x111MW capacity project on the Alaknanda river, near Helong village. According to THDC, Rs 1,187.54 crore has been spent on the project till now. THDC has filed a plea before the NGT to modify its order, and the next hearing is on July 3.

The EC had stated that muck ...

Why, despite bountiful harvest, farmers are in despair 8.6.2017 All News-IANS Stories
Amravati/Mumbai: A plentiful harvest in 2016 but imports drive some prices down 63 per cent. A shortage of cash because of demonetisation. Despite Rs 3.5 lakh crore -- enough to build 545 Tehri-sized dams -- invested on irrigation over six decades to 2011, more than half of all farms depend on rains. These are the three factors agitating Indians who depend on farming -- 90 million families, or 54.6 per cent of countrys 1.2 billion people.

Uttarakhand Elections 2017: Save our farms, cry worried state villagers to parties 7.2.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
As election campaign attains a feverish pitch in this tiny Himalayan state, perched in mountains, Darmayan Singh Bhandari is busy chasing away monkeys and wild boards from his farm to save his crop. The profusion of wild animals destroying livelihood of farmers has become an electoral issue in the region. Bhandari (60) instead of attending to his bedridden son, recovering from a near fatal road accident, spends most of his time chasing away monkeys and wild boars from his field. The former pradhan of Bhandargaon in poll-bound Uttarakhand's Tehri Garhwal district in a way personifies the everyday distress of the farming community – deteriorating farming conditions exacerbated by animal attacks on crops. Animals are talk of the town, or rather village, and instead of greetings come the worried queries. "Did the boars enter your field today?", "How did you shoo away the monkeys?". Bhandari finds it hard to explain why animals have become such a menace that he can't even look after his son. "I am not really ...

The changing face of urban areas 12.12.2016 Deccan Herald - Supplements
In the year 1569 CE, the Mughal emperor Akbar decided to build a new imperial capital. Some of the best architects of the time strove to translate Akbar's vision into a utopian city raised on a rocky sandstone ridge not far from Agra. Fourteen years later, the city of victory (Fatehpur Sikri) lay abandoned, as a nearby rivulet — the city's primary source of water had dried out. Clearly, it takes much more than imposing sandstone buildings, spacious courtyards and grand gateways to make a city. A city's ecosystem is much more than a source of water, food and energy — it regulates air quality, temperature and waste decomposition, among others. While some of these services, referred to as 'ecosystem services' are derived from within the city, many of these are sourced from elsewhere. For instance, a substantial portion of Delhi's water and electricity needs is met by the Tehri dam, which is 350 km away. Often, we don't recognise those benefits that cities derive from their ecosystems that aren't ...
