I dont know where else to post this news... Probably we need to start a new thread Chennai/TN and its temples for that......

ISKCON temple inaugurated



It has been constructed at a cost of Rs.10 crore collected from devotees in Chennai

The International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) on Thursday inaugurated its new Sri Radha Krishna Temple at Akkarai in Chennai.

Spread over an area of 1.5 acres, the temple has been constructed at a cost of Rs.10 crore collected from devotees in Chennai.

It has an auditorium for cultural and spiritual programmes and a ‘prasadam' hall.

Thousands of devotees witnessed the pran pratishta when the idols of Lord Krishna and Radha and their sakhis — Lalitha and Vishaka — were installed in one of the three beautifully-carved teak — wood altars in the temple hall.

The other idols in the hall include those of Lord Chaitanya and Lord Nityananda; Lord Jagannath, Baladev and Subhadra.

After the Kumbhabishekam and Maha mangala arati — the first decorated darshan of the deities — a helicopter showered flowers over the ‘gopurams' built in the Kalinga style with a Sudarshana Chakra on the top of the tallest ‘gopuram.'

The temple has been designed under the expertise of Bhanu Swami.

The entrance of the temple is marked by the representation of the universe. The idols in the temple on Burkit Road unit have also been shifted to this temple.

The temple is part of the Centre for Spiritual Art and Culture. Work on constructing the centre began in March 2002.

The Chennai centre of ISKCON has 8,000 life patrons.

Why people keep constructing new temples when more than 50% of the population lives under sub-sahara conditions? Also many grand old temples are not maintained properly.

JAPANESE CO. TO IMPLEMENT MYSORE-CHENNAI BULLET TRAIN SERVICE: INDUSTRIES MINISTER

The Karnataka government has come forward to introduce a 350km/ hour superfast Bullet Train service between Mysore-Bangalore-Chennai, Bangalore-Davanagere-Belgaum and Bangalore-Gulbarga to be developed by Japan Railway Company under the joint sponsorship of State and Central governments, said Minister for Major Industries Murugesh Nirani here yesterday.

Addressing a press conference here, Nirani said that a Japanese firm had opted to implement the Bullet Train project under the joint participation of State and Central Governments and a provision had been made for the project in this year's Railway Budget.

For people of the State who have just seen Metro Trains, the dream Bullet Train project with trains zooming at 350 kms an hour between major cities of the State and Chennai will indeed be a great gift.

The Industries Minister, who said that the Railways had already prepared a project which would be presented in the next State Cabinet meeting for approval, added that the Japanese firm had agreed to invest Rs. 1 lakh crore for implementation of the Bullet Train service between Chennai-Bangalore-Mysore in the first phase.


The services would be extended to Bangalore-Chitradurga-Davangere-Hubli-Belgaum in the second phase while Bangalore-Bidar-Gulbarga service would be implemented in the third phase.

He also said that a separate track for these Bullet Trains will be laid under which the journey time between Mysore-Bangalore will be reduced to just about half- an-hour while cities like Belgaum, Gulbarga and Chennai could be reached in a few hours.

On serious note,

KA wants to connect their cities with Bangalore and Chennai
KL wants to connect its ambitious Trivandrum-Mangalore HSR with proposed Chennai-Bangalore-CBE-Ernakulam CG HSR
AP will get big boost from Chennai-Hyderabad HSR via coastal Andhra.
And TN proposed HSR to CBE and Madurai/Cape from Chennai for 2023.

If all 4 states works together, a common and effective HSR grid can be formed!! Which may be easy to construct, fund and also to get good no. of commuters. But if not HSR atleast they can pressurise CG to quadraple existing tracks, increase avg speed of train to 120KMPH, modern rolling stocks and station modernization!!.. but as you told it will be in pipe dream for ever.

Suburbs to soon turn trade hub

Quote:
The much-neglected suburbs of northern and western Chennai are likely to see a spurt in commercial activity with a new logistics park coming up at Sholavaram town, bordering Tiruvallur district.

The warehousing park is expected to give a big boost to export-import activities from the Chennai Port, which in turn is expected to put the erstwhile British trade hub of Madras, back in the city’s commercial map.

Chennai-based private group Shri Kailaash Logistics (SKL) has come out with a concept of logicity in Sholavaram, a quiet town located 24 km from Chennai.

Part of the Rs 400-crore Sree Kailas group of companies, SKL plans to set up a 50-acre logistics park, with about 10 lakh square feet of space, housing huge customized warehouses and cold storage facilities offered on long term lease to clients.

“The introduction of GST will necessitate the concept of single warehouse for southern region,” said Mr S. Rajkumar, Director, SKL.

In anticipation of the new opportunity, the company has already started a 50-acre logistics park at an outlay of Rs 320 crore, a first-of-its-kind facility in Oragadam.

This is expected to serve a big boost to both FMCG firms and marine industry. “For FMCG companies, most sorting activity is carried out by logistics providers,” said logistics consultant Mr R.Kalyanaraman.

“Such a hub can help companies halve their logistics spend,” he added. In fact, companies such as Nestle, Cadburys and HUL are already reported to have made enquiries about the same.

This apart, marine industry too, which is muddled with their deep sea catches getting decayed due to lack of cold storage facility, may now be benefited.

The export sea food produce from Kasimedu and Thiruvottiyur coastal waters can be preserved better due to their proximity to the proposed warehouse park.

Akin to IT firms that led to the rapid development of the city along the OMR and ECR stretch, such a logistics boom may serve a boon in disguise to change the face of this part of Greater Chennai, opine urban planners.

Soon, Aavins new unit at Ambattur

Quote:
CHENNAI: A new dairy would be set up in Ambattur here by the Tamil Nadu Cooperative Milk Producers Federation Limited (TCMPF), the makers of Aavin, to meet the growing demand for milk products.

Moving the demand for grant for milk and dairy development, Minister V Moorthy said the capacity of the Ambattur dairy was inadequate to meet the growing demand of milk products in Chennai.

The dairy was producing kova, ice cream, lassi, curd, buttermilk, paneer, gulab jamoon and mysorepa. Hence, a new ‘product dairy’ would be established in the vacant land adjacent to the existing facility in an area of 2.50 acre with a total outlay of `12 crore.

“The work has been initiated with federation funds. TCMPF is also seeking assistance from NABARD, besides others,” he said. To usher in the second wh-ite revolution, strategies had been evolved, he said. Str-engthening grass root level infrastructure by forming 6,000 dairy units in a phased manner was among them. Each year, 1,500 dairy units would be formed by engaging NGOs.

Also, this year, 10,000 mi-lch cows would be procured with funding assistance from banks, which would be given to milk producers. The effort would strengthen the goal of a second white revolution. In 20-12-13, it was proposed to increase milk production to 28 lakh litres per day at the primary level by forming new milk producers’ cooperative societies and bringing more producers to the cooperative fold by ensuring animal health care and providing cattle feed.

100 may soon be Tamil Nadu’s 911

Quote:
CHENNAI: You dial 100 for police, 101 for fire service, 102 for ambulance and 103 for complaints on autorickshaw fares. It may soon not be necessary to remember these numbers with Tamil Nadu planning to make 100 the common number to dial in any emergency.

Like the system in the United States, where 911 is the common emergency number, Tamil Nadu is deliberating unification of various services under a single number.

In the state, 100 is now a police number and that too only in cities such as Chennai, Madurai and Trichy. "In smaller towns and other parts of the state, people have to dial the local police station or the police officer's number in case of emergencies. This is inefficient in many cases as people don't memorise individual numbers and the officer may be burdened with calls," said a police officer.

Officials from the 108 ambulance service say the integration is inevitable. "A man recently fell into a well. Though our ambulance reached the spot, we had to wait for the fire and rescue services to come and get him out. Police were also required to probe if it was a suicide or a homicide. In a state like Tamil Nadu, given its large population and land area, a centralised system is necessary," said an official with the ambulance service. Home department officials are discussing the proposed system and a private company will advise the department on technical support, sources said.

The police are looking at various methods of implementing the system. "We are now assessing the requirements of the state," said an official of the consultancy firm. "We have suggested a fully automatic system using IVRS (interactive voice response system). Once the call is connected, the caller will have to dial specific numbers for specific requirements, like 1 for ambulance and 2 for fire services," he said.

SA likely to close overseas trade offices

http://news.ninemsn.com.au/article.aspx?id=8459554

South Australia is likely to close most of its overseas trade offices, opting for a more targeted approach to attracting international investment.

A review of the state's eight trade offices has recommended all but the one in Jinan, in the Shandong Province in China, be shut.

A separate agent general's office in London will also stay.

Premier Jay Weatherill said no final decision had been made but he could see the sense in the argument in a move to give South Australia a competitive advantage.

"This is about giving us the best opportunity to attract the investment we know we need to realise the opportunities that exist here in South Australia," he said.

"We are on the cusp of an enormous era of prosperity in this state."

If the recommendations of the review are accepted, the trade offices to go will be those in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Chennai, Singapore, Ho Chi Minh City, Dubai and Santiago.

South Australia currently spends about $2.8 million a year on its trade offices.

Trade Minister Tom Koutsantonis said the change in strategy was not necessarily about making savings but rather getting better value for money by using experts on the ground to leverage opportunities in specific markets.

"The old method of the traditional bricks and mortar approach to trade and investment, where you go buy or lease a building and put the flag up, does not work," he said.

"This is by no means a withdrawal from overseas markets. It's about making sure we have a bigger impact in those target markets as they evolve."
