Walk on the wild side 24.2.2018 Deccan Herald - Supplements
As the convoy of elephants trundled their way through the dew-laden grasslands in Kaziranga National Park, I came across a pair of one-horned rhinos gently grazing in the elephant grass. This was my first rendezvous with rhinos, in their natural habitat. Built like a battle tank on stubby legs, the rhino is the star attraction of the park. From my lofty vantage point on elephant back, besides the endangered one-horned rhinos, I spotted wild water buffaloes, hog deer, and also hundreds of swamp deer trot past wild boars before they retreated into the high vegetation. This wildlife Eden also shelters hoolock gibbons, tigers, leopards, capped langurs, sloth bears, jackals, and pythons. It is also the most beautiful national park in the subcontinent, with superb ponds, lakes and rivers where otters frolic and herds of elephants splash around. Lower down, in West Bengal, as the boat cruised through the muddy estuaries and mangrove forests in the Sundarbans National Park, my eyes kept peeled for the tigers ...

Ker for CM level talks with TN on PAP waters 13.2.2018 General News
: Kerala today sought Chief Ministerial level talks with Tamil Nadu as early as possible to sort out the issue relating to the sharing of Parambikulam-Aliyar project waters. In a letter to his Tamil Nadu counterpart, K Palaniswami, Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan said CM level talks should be held in the coming days to sort out the issue and urged him to fix up an appropriate time for the same. Kerala should get 400 cusecs of water till February 15 as per the water sharing agreement under the PAP project, Vijayan said in his second letter to Palaniswami this month.

Farmers of Chittor region at Palakkad, who depend mainly on the release of water under the PAP pact, were in distress due to non-release of water as per the agreement,Vijayan said.

Ker CM should hold talks with TN on water sharing:Cong leader 9.2.2018 General News
The Opposition Congress-led UDF in Kerala today said Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan should hold talks with his Tamil Nadu counterpart directly to find a solution to the state not getting its due share of water from the Parambikulam Aliyar project. Opposition leader in the state assembly Ramesh Chennithala attacked the LDF government for its alleged failure in "fruitfully" intervening in the matter. Despite neighbouring Tamil Nadu "flouting" the water sharing pact by not releasing the state's share from the project, the government had not "fruitfully" intervened, he said in a statement here. Vijayan should directly hold talks with his Tamil Nadu counterpart to find a solution to the issue immediately, he said. "Violating" the pact had become a routine matter for Tamil Nadu, he said. Water was not being released to Kerala and was instead being diverted to Thirumoorthy dam due to which in Chittor, Pattambi and nearby areas hundreds of hectares of farm lands were getting ..
