Decoding Dandeli 28.2.2018 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Ever been to a place where you screech through the rapids yet cautiously backpack through the woods while being dazzled by the landscape and wildlife around? Yes, thats Dandeli- the adventure capital of the south! Nestled amidst the dense forests of the Western Ghats, the contrasting environment supports a wide range of wildlife from squawking hornbills to fierce big cats, while stocked with tens of resorts and stays dotted among its surroundings, particularly alongside river Kali which runs through the town. We were a group of five adrenaline junkies heading from Bengaluru who took an overnight train to Londa- the nearest station (about 30 kilometres north of our resort) and reached there early morning. From Londa, we used public transport just as every budget traveller would, though the resorts provide pickup/drop services from/to your preferred location in their vicinity at an extra cost- depending on the distance. We alighted at Ganeshgudi, a town 20 kilometres west of Dandeli. One does need to be ...

Mahadayi: Goa's plaint now irrelevant: Karnataka 13.2.2018 Deccan Herald - State
The Karnataka government on Tuesday told the Mahadayi Water Dispute Tribunal that the complaint filed by the Goa government was no longer relevant as it has conceded that the availability of water in the basin was 113.50 tmcft as against its previous claim of 54 tmcft. Putting forth its arguments, state counsel advocate Mohan V Katarki submitted before a bench presided over by Justice J M Panchal that Goa has claimed that there was absolutely no scope for diversion of water outside the basin to Malaprabha river but there was no averment in its complaint that Malaprabha was a surplus river. The state government also contended that there was no express claim by Goa in its complaint that its interests or that of its inhabitants would be affected by the acts of Karnataka. The Goa government had objected to the Karnataka government building big reservoirs in the basins of Malaprabha and Kali rivers, beyond its own requirements. Karnataka sought diversion of over 7 tmcft of water from Mahadayi basin to ...

Death sentence to Kali Valley? 22.8.2017 Deccan Herald - Opinion
A Karnataka cabinet subcommittee has taken a decision to reduce the protective nature of the forest cover under Ecologically Sensitive Zones (ESZ) in Kali Valley from 1,202 sq km to 312 sq km. This is endorsed by the Ministry of Environment, Forests and Climate Change in Delhi (MoEFCC). The collusion of the state and central governments, with different political thoughts, is a definitive indicator of the way our natural resources are appropriated by the powerful elite, tweaking rules and regulations on their own behalf. Kali Valley is part of the fragile Western Ghats region on the border of Karnataka and Goa in Uttara Kannada district. Although the Kali River originates only 32 km from the coast, it traverses 183 km majestically in the midst of Kali Valley to join the Arabian Sea at Karwar. The catchment forests in the valley, covering 1,890 sq km, are well-known as biodiversity hotspots, hosting the world-famous Dandeli teak, hornbills, and rich flora with rare medicinal plants. The 2006 declaration of ...

The bridge to a better life 12.6.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
We could not afford to fall ill during the monsoons until the bridge was built," recalls Gopal Bhat of Shivapura village in Uttara Kannada. The district has many such villages that are surrounded by rivers or backwaters and thus cut-off from the mainland. For example, though Shivapura is in Joida taluk, reaching the taluk centre was difficult for the villagers as one had to cover a distance of 40 km on non-motorable roads crossing hills and forests in the Kali Tiger Reserve. While Yellapur town is just 20 km away with good road connectivity, the backwaters of Kodsalli Dam blocked the access throughout the year. Barge was the only means of transport and people always lived in a state of readiness to manage the situations. Circumstances have changed for the better after a suspension footbridge (SFB) was constructed across the backwaters two years ago. Shivapura Bridge has not only connected two taluks, but also improved the lives of people and boosted tourism in the region. "Shivapura has become a tourist ...
