The hill of the 'dwarves' 15.5.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Sometime in the early 1800s, Rev G Keiss, a German missionary stationed at a mission in Betageri near Gadag, crossed River Tungabhadra from Beejanugger (Vijayanagara) near Anegundi and went on to Mallapur, where he enquired about the 'dwarf houses of Yemmi Gudda' that were rumoured to exist in the hills nearby. With some help from the headman of the village, he was able to locate them on the saddle of a hill north-west of Mallapur, scattered among enormous boulders that dotted the hills. In great excitement, he wrote to his friend Colonel Philip Meadows Taylor, the political superintendent at Surpur, who had shown him similar structures at Rajan Koluru, near Lingsugur. He described the various structures he saw there. Most eye-catching were what they called 'cromlechs' and 'kistvaens' - box-like structures made of tall, square stone slabs set on end; roofed over with large horizontal capstones. There were hundreds of them scattered among the boulders and Keiss made a rough plan of the site and sent it ...

Survey on silt in TB dam over, but no sign of desilting 9.5.2017 deccanherald.com
A survey to ascertain the amount of silt in the Tungabhadra dam has drawn to a close. The report is expected to reach the Tungabhadra Board within a month. The 60-day work was undertaken by R V Associates of Mumbai. It is done when the dam is full of water and also when the water level hits the bottom, like at present. Engineers say 0.5 tmc feet of silt gets collected in the dam every year, thereby reducing the water storage. Of the total capacity of 133 tmc feet in the dam, 33 tmc feet is silt, the survey showed. There were charges that the dam water was not being apportioned equally between Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh due to the silt. But there seems to be not much enthusiasm on the part of the government to desilt the reservoir. Minister for Water Resources M B Patil said the desilting work would require thousands of crores of rupees. Instead, there was a plan to construct a balancing reservoir to store the additional water. D Rangareddy, secretary of the Tungabhadra Dam Administrative Board, said ...

Dams can meet drinking water needs for 2 months, says govt 10.4.2017 Deccan Herald - State
Water available in various reservoirs of the state are enough only to supply drinking water to major cities and towns, including Bengaluru, for the next 60 days, Water Resources Minister M B Patil said on Monday. Bengaluru requires 600 cusecs of water every day. We (Water Resources department) have taken measures to ensure supply of 800 cusecs per day (about 200 cusecs is lost in transition) till June 15. However, it is advisable for the Bengaluru Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) to start rationing the water supply, he told reporters. "A total of 7.748 tmcft of water (live storage) is available at the KRS and the Kabini reservoirs in the Cauvery basin. Bengaluru alone needs an estimated 4.14 tmcft of water for the next two months. We are confident of ensuring water supply to Bengaluru, Mysuru, Mandya and others towns in the Cauvery basin region for the next 60 days," he said. The water level has touched rock bottom in all the reservoirs due to successive years of drought and failure of monsoon ...

State plans balancing reservoir to offset silt in Tungabhadra dam 8.2.2017 deccanherald.com
Water Resources Minister M B Patil on Wednesday informed the Legislative Council that it would be unscientific to desilt the Tungabhadra dam, which has about 33 tmcft of silt deposition. Replying to N S Boseraju (Congress), the minister said that a minimum of 66,000 acres would be required to dump the silt from the reservoir. The Tungabhadra dam, near Hosapete in Ballari district, was constructed 65 years ago. About 0.5 tmcft of silt is getting deposited annually. Desilting should have been planned from the time of construction, he said. He said that to offset the silt, a balancing reservoir would be constructed in Navali village in Koppal district. The land required would be 18,000 acres and the estimated cost of the proposed reservoir is Rs 5,600 crore. Dryland would be acquired and hence the land acquisition process would not be difficult. The Tungabhadra Board would have to approve the new project, he added. As per the report card of the department which was released recently, the silt deposition has ...

An architectural symphony 6.2.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The Hoysalas are best known for perfecting the art of temple architecture and the use of soapstone in construction. What many don't know is that they were influenced by Kalyani Chalukyas (also known as Western Chalukyas) who were the first to use soapstone as the major construction material. Hoysalas also adopted Kalyani Chalukya temple elements like lathe-turned pillars and ornate makara toranas (lintel with mythical figures). It is believed that the Chennakeshava Temple at Belur built by the Hoysalas has borrowed heavily from the style and aesthetics of Kalyani Chalukya architecture. While Mahadeva Temple at Itagi is the largest and most ornate of the temples built by Kalyani Chalukyas, there are many smaller temples scattered in the Tungabhadra region, their southern-most stronghold. Kalleshwara Temple at Bagali, first constructed by the Rashtrakutas and then expanded to its full glory by Kalyani Chalukyas, is a beautiful specimen to study the seamless blend of two architectural styles. The shrine ...
