NGT refuses to set aside green clearance for Amaravati capital 19.11.2017 DNA: Mumbai
In a relief for the Andhra Pradesh (AP) government, the National Green Tribunal (NGT) on Friday declined to set aside the environmental clearance (EC) for building of the new capital city Amaravati and allowed the project to go ahead, subject to set of stringent conditions for environment protection. The verdict was passed by a three-member bench headed by Justice Swatanter Kumar after hearing a batch of pleas that challenged the project on environmental grounds and the project's EC.

Lost recipes 18.11.2017 DNA: Urban Tales
UPPER REACHES OF UTTARAKHAND Garhwal, the hilly region of Uttarakhand, is said to be quite proactive in preserving continuing use of organic and traditional seeds and grains in India. And the people take pride in their home-grown produce. So it's common to come across people, including in towns such as Dehradun, who like to tend to their kitchen gardens or grow greens on their window sills. "The shift in their food choices therefore is not huge. Even so, there are a few food items that are fading out," says Rushina Munshaw Ghildiyal, who began archiving Garhwali recipes nearly two decades ago. "Packaged snacks such Maggi noodles and Kurkure are aspirational foods. They are marketed so well that even people in areas affected by malnutrition prefer to spend on these than on nutrition-rich food." With Punjabis having settled in tourist hotspots such as Mussoorie, the community's food too has wielded an influence in the region. The traditional mandua ki roti or the earthy millet porridge called paleu have ...
