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 ...

Winged beauties of Hampi 2.1.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
It was a cradle of prehistoric human civilisation, abode of mythological characters and the capital of the mighty Vijayanagar Empire. The rich heritage of Hampi region attracts a sea of tourists from across the world. The archaeological splendour of the World Heritage Site continues to mesmerise the tourists for more than five centuries. Hampi is also known for its geological wonders in the form of picturesque rocks, boulders and scrub jungle. This area is a preferred destination for migratory birds from different regions of the world. The seemingly 'cursed' eastern plains of North Karnataka is home to rich biodiversity. Along with some endangered mammal species, more than 250 species of birds are found in this region. While the rocky caves here provide a safe shelter to many mammals and reptiles like the Indian sloth bear and leopard, the scrub jungle is a haven for birds, some of which — like the yellow-throated bulbul and painted spurfowl — are rare. Similarly, the great Indian bustard is ...

Siddu okays purchase of 1,500 MW of power 26.11.2016 deccanherald.com
Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Saturday told the Energy department that there was no question of effecting load-shedding from December onwards. To ensure continued supply of power, he has approved purchase of up to 1,500 MW of energy. As the water stored in reservoirs is expected to drastically reduce December onwards, the department has been forced to draw up a contingency plan, including purchase of additional power. Siddaramaiah, who held a review meeting on the functioning of thermal power plants in Raichur, Ballari and Yeramarus, directed officials to ensure seven hours of continuous power supply (three phase) to farmers. As one of the units (unit 3) of the Bellary Thermal Power Station (BTPS) has been down for more than a week due to non-availability of water, Siddaramaiah instructed the Water Resources department to release 60 cusecs of water from the Tungabhadra reservoir. The department has promised to release water to BTPS from January-end, which will facilitate generation of 450 MW. As there ...
