Shivamogga: the hub of ganja cultivation in state 21.10.2017 Deccan Herald - State
The gateway to Malnad has become the hub of ganja production in Karnataka. As many as 800 kilograms of ganja plants have been seized in Shivamogga district in the last 10 months, the highest in the state, according to police sources. Ganja has especially become a major source of income for history-sheeters and is propelling criminal activities in the Malnad region. Superintendent of Police Abhinav Ashok Khare said Shivamogga had been a base of many history-sheeters. Kotwal Ramachandra, who hails from Shivamogga, was one of the underworld gangsters of Bengaluru in the 1970s and 1980s. In those days, sandalwood trees were the main source of income for anti-social elements who would sell them to carry out their activities. Sandalwood trees were easily available in the Malnad region back then. But the situation has changed now with ganja replacing sandalwood. History-sheeters often use the money earned through the sale of ganja to get bail from courts. Not only that, several recent gang attacks in the ...

With the state government restricting grants for diamond jubilee celebration of Vidhana Soudha to Rs 10 crore, the state legislature has reduced funds allotted to filmmakers to make documentaries on the iconic structure and the state legislature.

Dowry praised in sociology material, but college denies it's from textbook 20.10.2017 deccanherald.com
A Bengaluru college was accused on Friday of promoting dowry in its study material. St. Josephs Arts and Science College, Shanti Nagar, was at the centre of a social media storm after a page from the chapter on dowry appeared on Facebook, and was reposted by many on Twitter. The college, however, said the chapter was not from a prescribed textbook. "In fact, we have no prescribed textbook for sociology," a college official said. "The students read reference material." Dowry is considered a heinous criminal act by the Supreme Court and the government and attracts penalty and imprisonment. However, in some places, the age-old tradition of a brides father showering the grooms family with gifts of money, precious metals and even property continues. In a Facebook post, Rithika Ramesh shared a page of a B.A. students sociology study material, which shows not one, but at least seven advantages to the dowry system. Some of those benefits it lists are: 1. Dowry makes possible the marriage of ugly girls, who would ...
