On December 31 2020, the newsrack service will be shut down permanently.

It has been a nice long run from the Sarai days in 2004 to being hosted on its own domain around 2006. Beside maintenance, there has been no real active development on the code or the features since early 2008. Since 2015, even all that maintenance was pretty bare bones. A lot of news sources no longer provide reliable RSS feeds and since mid 2018, there were growing issues with the service and I only kept it alive to assist a handful of users.

So, it is time to shut this down. The internet world in 2020 is vastly differently from 2003 when I first conceptualized this service. Thanks for using this all these years.

If you need to access any data, email me: subbu at newsrack.in

Dry days loom over city as water level in KRS down 20% 20.9.2016 deccanherald.com
The water level in the Krishnaraja Sagar (KRS) reservoir, which is the main source of drinking water to Bengaluru, has dipped by 20% this year, in what is an ominous sign of a water crisis. The current water level in the reservoir is 84.75 feet, down from 105.57 feet in the corresponding period last year. The reduction may pose a major challenge to the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) to supply Cauvery water to the city in the coming months. As on Tuesday (September 20), the gross storage of water in the KRS stood at 13.04 tmcft. Excluding the dead storage level of 4.66 tmcft, the remaining 8.64 tmcft is being pumped to Bengaluru, 44 towns and 650 villages. What this means is that the percentage of gross water storage in the KRS is just 26.37, less than half of 55.61% in the corresponding period last year. The water storage in other reservoirs has also seen a dip compared with the last year. The percentage of gross water storage in Kabini is 58.61 (73% last year), Hemavathy 26.37 (55.61% ...
