Darkness on the edge of the city of lights (Cached) 16.4.2014 Telegraph: Opinion
The first person I met in Varanasi was Tiwariji. Ageing, courteous and seemingly unaffected by the blistering heat, he met me outside the airport, enquired about the purpose of my visit ' "Chunao cover karne ayein hain?"' and then led me to the waiting car. Once we were inside the vehicle, I had expected Tiwariji to turn the ignition key. He didn't. Instead he turned around, studied me briefly, and then broke into an uninterrupted speech in praise of Narendra Modi. For a moment, I feared that I had been tricked into hitching a ride on a rath instead of a car.

A coastal desalination plant planned for east of Beijing could provide a large portion of the drinking water for the parched Chinese capital by 2019, the state news media quoted officials as saying on Tuesday.

Goa's shrinking mussel shellfish gets a fresh lease of life 16.4.2014 deccanherald.com
Goas mussel shellfish, a regular part of the states cuisine, has got a fresh lease of life after the Indian Council for Agricultural Research embarked on a project to arrest the rapid decline of the species. Mussel is the common name used for members of several families of clams from saltwater and freshwater habitats. In the wake of the poor availability of mussel last year, a team of ICAR scientists started working with the local community to revive the mussel and other two indigenous fish varieties, that have been rapidly depleting, despite them fetching handsome returns in the market. "There was no mussel spat available last year," Manju Lakshmi N, scientist with the Fishing Resources Management Division of ICAR, said. Factors like pollution, climate change and sand mining has resulted in the dwindling number of mussel, found in the states estuarine waters, she said. According to her, the shifting of monsoon patterns from its traditional calendar also contributed to it. As part of the mariculture ...
