When waterfalls come alive 6.11.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The rainy spells at the end of monsoon have changed the landscape of Jogimatti, 14 km away from Chitradurga. Considered to be an arid area, Chitradurga has soaked in the magic of monsoon this season and the Jogimatti area, in particular, offers a visual treat to the visitors. The Jogimatti forest range is spread across Chitradurga, Holalkere and Hiriyur taluks. This forest acts as the catchment area for the water sources in the surrounding villages. Several rainwater harvesting structures like Kumaranakatte, Gopanakatte, Beeramallappa tank, Okkalikkanakatte, Kadlekatte kanive and Balambavi have been constructed in this forest centuries ago. Though the reason behind the construction of these structures is not clear, they are crucial to maintain the water levels in the region. Apart from these, one can see dones or pools carved naturally on rocks. All these and other water storage structures in the Jogimatti forest area are brimming with water due to generous rains this year. Interestingly, water flowing ...

Young leaders working under 'SBI Youth for India' felicitated 3.11.2017 DNA: India
Thirteen months in remote villages of different states, living amongst strangers, working on projects that will benefit the community at large, taught 53 youngsters the meaning of selfless service. These young boys and girls were part of a 13-month long programme called SBI Youth For India, devised to bridge the rural-urban divide, using the young blood as a catalyst. These youths were felicitated for different projects they worked upon during the fellowship by the State Bank of India at SBI Academy here on Thursday. From women empowerment, environment conservation, watershed development, female reproduction health, the project was "life-altering" according to the youths. 22-year-old Jaswanth Dadi, an engineering graduate remembers how a visit to Bandgaun, a village in Ajmer district of Rajasthan, made him realise the significance of water. As he went around talking to villagers, each one came up with one common woe - water scarcity. Making matters worse was the huge quantity of fluoride in it that made ...
