Over 70 protesters held for trying to cross over to Kerala on 7.3.2018 General News
More than 70 activists of various parties and organisations were today arrested on the Tamil Nadu-Kerala border when they attempted to cross over to Kerala to inspect an area where that state is reportedly constructing a check dam across the Siruvani-Bhavani rivers. Police said they raised slogans against the Tamil Nadu government for remaining mute spectator on the issue and Kerala for constructing the dam, thus depriving water to Tamil Nadu. The protesters, led by DMK MLA, N Karthik, leaders of Congress, MDMK, Viduthalai Chiruthaigal Katchi (VCK) and Thanthai Periyar Dravida Kazhagam (TPDK), staged the demonstration at Anaikatti. Police prevented them from crossing over to the neighbouring state. Later talking to reporters, Karthik alleged that Kerala had already constructed check dams at Manjukandi and Thekkuvattai and constructing one at Kottathurai, which would affect the farmers of Erode, Tirupur and Coimbatore districts. Karthik said the parties will decide their .

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 ...
