    Students protesting his transfer out of the school

    We do have some efficient teachers who completely involve in their profession.
    Don’t go, sir!: TN students cling on to their teacher, refuse to accept his transfer




    The students created a barrier with their love and affection for Bhagawan as he walked out with his transfer order, one student even hugging him from the back, refusing to let him leave.

    A young man in a simple grey shirt and grey pants is surrounded by students – all of them crying, hanging on to him, holding him back. G Bhagawan, the beloved English teacher of the Government High School in Veliagaram, Thiruvallur, was given a transfer order, and the students of the school were heartbroken. They created a barrier with their love and affection for the 28-year-old – one student even hugging him from the back, refusing to let him leave. Touched, Bhagawan, too, was crying as much as his students.

    The pictures of this emotional moment were published in the media and by news channel Puthiya Thalaimurai, and the students’ gesture moved even the bureaucracy. G Bhagawan was transferred to the Government High School in Arungulam near Tiruttani – but this deployment has now been put on hold for ten days, after which it will be decided if he should stay in Veliagaram school or go to the new school.

    Corporation frames bylaws to impose a penalty of up to ₹25,000; stresses on segregation of waste at source

    The Chennai Corporation proposes to effect a steep increase in the maximum fine for littering — from ₹50 to ₹25,000 in the city.

    The civic body has framed solid waste management bylaws under Section 349 of the Chennai City Municipal Corporation Act of 1919 to collect fines ranging from ₹100 to ₹25,000 for littering.

    “Event organisers will pay the maximum fine of ₹25,000 for non-segregation, littering, burying and burning of waste,” said an official. Currently, the civic body is empowered to collect merely ₹50 from violators as per statutory provisions, officials said.

    The bylaws apply to domestic, institutional, commercial and any other non-residential solid waste generators, as well as individuals who dump solid waste in stormwater drains, underground sewage systems and waterbodies in the city.

    For example, any resident who dumps garbage on the street will have to pay a fine of ₹1,000 to the Chennai Corporation.

    Four-day Ambubachi Mela begins in Guwahati after the Kamakhya temple doors are closed

    Ambubachi Mela, a four-day fair to mark the annual menstruation of the goddess at Kamakhya temple in Guwahati, began on Friday.
    Kamakhya, atop Nilachal Hills in Guwahati, is one of 51 shaktipeeths or seat of Shakti followers, each representing a body part of the Sati, Lord Shiva’s companion. The temple’s sanctum sanctorum houses the yoni — female genital — symbolised by a rock.
    Letting Goddess go through it

    Priests at the temple said doors of the temple were shut for visitors at 4 p.m. on Friday to let the goddess go through her period.

    “The temple doors will be reopened at 4.30 p.m. from Tuesday (June 26). All Hindu temples across the region will remain closed during this period,” Kabindra Sarma, a senior priest, said.

    Supply has risen while the demand has fallen.. result.,!!

    For Maharashtra dairy farmers, milk is now cheaper than water

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    SANGLI: Across Maharashtra's once prosperous milk belt, many dairy farmers face this stinging reality: the milk they sell is cheaper than water.

    Some get Rs 23 per litre of cow's milk, mainly in the milk hub of Kolhapur. But most earn just Rs 17-19. By comparison, bottled water sells at Rs 20 a litre. Once the milk reaches consumers in cities, the price doubles to Rs 40-44. But farmers do not get a share of the mark-up.

    As the milk economy curdles, the sight of milk dumped on roads has become emblematic of farmer protests. A year ago they got up to Rs 27 per litre of cow’s milk, but prices plunged by Rs 4-10 eight months ago as a result of a surplus and a crash in international skimmed milk powder prices.

    With several dairies announcing cuts in procurement rates by Rs 2 from Thursday and some choosing not to buy cow’s milk at all, the crisis is mounting.

    Felling of 16,500 trees..especially when the air pollution at Delhi is hitting hazardous level..!!!

    Delhi High Court bans felling of 16,500 trees in south Delhi




    The Government had approved felling of 16,500 trees in the city for revamping South Delhi. Photo for representative purpose only. Photo credit: Sushil Kumar Verma.
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    “You know the effect it would have. I understand if it was widening of road or something inevitable. Can Delhi afford it today,” the Bench remarks.

    The Delhi High Court on Monday banned the cutting down of over 16,500 trees for redevelopment of six south Delhi colonies by the National Buildings Construction Corporation (NBCC) and the Central Public Works Department (CPWD) till July 4.

    A Bench of Justices Vinod Goel and Rekha Palli directed the NBCC not to cut trees till July 4, the next date of hearing and also permitted the petitioner to challenge the orders passed by the department giving permission to cut trees for these residential projects.

    “You know the effect it would have. I understand if it was widening of road or something inevitable. Can Delhi afford it today,” the Bench remarked.

    The petitioner, an orthopaedic surgeon, has sought the setting aside of the terms of reference and the environment clearances (EC) granted to the project by the Environment Ministry, saying it would lead to the felling of over 16,500 trees.
