Went to KFC and had to wait for more than one hour in Queue that too at from 09:00 PM. Good to see crowds flocking to KFC. Opening of KFC is a welcome change in TVM as MG Road previously had a deserted look after 08:30 PM as all major shops get closed at that time.

They are taking orders at 10:45 PM and people were still in queue .I Think they are open till 11:00 PM. (or 11:30 PM)?

Only issue in KFC is the person who is at the counter is also going to kitchen for collecting orders and serving it to customers so the queue is moving at a very slow pace and the space is limited .Hope these teething troubles be rectified soon .

Organic rice 'mela' in Thiruvananthapuram from Friday


Black is beautiful and in the case of rice, nutritious and packed with antioxidants too. Black rice, as one would imagine, is deep black in colour and mutates into a regal purple hue when cooked. The purple colour is due to the grain’s naturally high anthocyanin content, a trait most typically observed in fruits such as blueberries and blackberries.

The black rice, along with a thousand other varieties of rice, nutritious and even medicinal, has almost been wiped out of the country in the rush of high-yielding varieties. Here is a chance for you to take a peep at the rice biodiversity that the country once had. Thanal, along with Organic Bazaar, Save our Rice Campaign and the Asia-wide effort for Collective Rice Action (CORA) to Reclaim Our Rice and Biodiversity, will organise a three-day exhibition-cum-sale ‘mela’ for Organic Rice. The mela is to be held from July 6 to 8 at YMCA Hall at Statue Junction.

The fragrant ‘Gandhakasala’ from Wayanad, red rice varieties such as ‘Thondi’ and ‘Kuruva’, ‘Thavalakannan’ used in temples for preparing beaten rice flakes, ‘Njavara’ rice that is recommended for diabetics, ‘Mullankazhama’ - a lovely flower-like rice, the small grained brown rice called ‘Komal’, and varieties especially for lactating women will be on display.

These varieties, many of them grown in very small patches in Kerala, are being introduced to the consumers in Thiruvananthapuram by the Save our Rice Campaign, a national campaign to sustain rice. What is even more interesting is the fact that the native rice varieties are most resistant than the hybrid high-yielding ones.

‘’The Organic Rice Mela will also promote the consumption of red rice, which is a nutritious form of unpolished rice. The polished rice is known to be one of the reasons for the increasing incidence of diabetes and other related diseases. The mela will also offer consumers an option to book their year-long supply of organic red rice,’’ said S Usha, director of Thanal.

The mela will also launch the Kerala-leg of the ‘India for Safe Food Movement’ demanding that the Union Government should ban all the 67 hazardous pesticides that are used in India, but banned in other countries. This is a movement for change amongst Indian farmers, consumers and the government to ensure that all Indians have access to safe food, devoid of toxic substances.

“Now the general public are aware of the pesticides and have started growing their own vegetables. But there is a false belief that rice is relatively safe. The farmers growing organic rice need to be supported. We hope people will eat more organic rice so that the farmers will cultivate it more,’’ said Usha.

The organisers of the mela intend to request the State Government to implement the Organic Farming Policy in full earnest, so as to ensure the safety of farmers as well as consumers. They also demanded that the Government should take steps to promote indigenous varieties of paddy which are highly nutritious, stress-tolerant and with special qualities.

For more information, contact telephone numbers at 9447022775, or 9995358205 or the Thanal office at OD-3, Jawahar Nagar, Kowdiar, Thiruvananthapuram.

Why TRIVANDRUM was a clean city till a decade ago ?

This is a out of topic discussion.But will surely be frequently in news for the decades to come.

Trivandrum was a clean city for over centuries till last decade.
With modernisation and changing lifestyle,waste generation has increased multifold.This is the real issue behind the Vilappisala Episode.
Government's proposal for setting up Waste disposal sites at places like Technocity is not at all a solution.

I could see a lot of posts of vilapilsala in this forum on this topic.After analysing what went wrong,i could find some small unnoticed changes that is slowly changing our city into a huge pile of garbage menace.

Traditionally the houses in Trivandrum (with in city ) used to have 8-10 cent land.Muttom (in front side of house) and Kitchen Yard/Parambu/Vila (on the back side of the house) used to be the part of standard design.

Lifestyle: Every Morning and Evening ladies used to broom the muttom and collect the dry leaves and paper waste (plastic waste was very less at that time) at a single point and burn the waste every evening or the next.The smoke from the burning of leaves kept mosquitoes and insects away from the house.Alternately some houses had their bathrooms outside the main building,people used the dry leaves for boiling water for bathing.Which is cheaper energy conservation method than even solar water bath.
Decomposable waste like food waste used to dumped in small pits around fruiting trees and covered with mud later on used to become organic manure.

The shops used to pack articles in newspapers and jute thread instead of plastic carry bags.The papers and jute thread is combustable ,decomposable as well as recyclable while plastic bags which became the culture turns out to be the real villain.Colas used to come in recyclable glass bottles so was milk.
Now plastic bags,tetrapack and PET bottles have taken their role.This is the next culprit.

With realestate and construction sector booming and land becoming scarce,houses have started comingup even in plots as less as 2.5 cents.
The traditional technologies of waste disposal could not growup or advance with newtechnologies and lifestyle.Modernisation of these old systems only can solve the garbage menace.Eg:- compact smokeless modular incenerators for each house,softdrink vending machines instead of PET bottles,preventing the use of disposables like disposable items like plastic bags,PET Bottles,disposable cups,plates, disposable vaazhayila,...........can solve this issue.
Pipe Composting is another option for managing organic waste.
Disposal at source is the scientific terminology for this traditional practice.
Once these practices are reintroduced in modern form,Trivandrum will once again become Cleanest city in India.

Technopark firms celebrate American holiday

Do you know the significance of July 4? Most Americans and a few techies in Technopark know the importance of this date. July 4, the Independence Day of America, is a holiday for some US-based companies in Technopark. For certain other firms, it is a day of relaxation as it is a holiday for offices in the USA.

Wednesday was a holiday for some Technopark-based companies such as iDynamics Limited. Though a UK-based company, iDynamics usually provides a holiday on July 4 every year. Major IT-Enabled Services operating on US-based services enjoyed a free time on Wednesday. “There are about 30-40 companies having US investments. Some of these companies have less work on this day,” said M Vasudevan, senior manager, business development at Technopark.

Since IT companies do not depend on day-to- day operations like BPO companies, most of the IT employees had regular work on Wednesday.

US holidays such as Thanksgiving Day celebrated on every fourth Thursday of November and Memorial Day observed every last Monday of May are idle days for most of the ITES companies in Technopark which function on US-based services.

Though the US Independence Day is celebrated only on July 4, there will be less work for almost two days here.

Meanwhile, some employees find it strange as they might be busy working on regional festival days such as Onam, Vishu etc. Ironically, some of the BPO companies working 24 x 7 do not have holidays even on August 15 and January 26.

City to get India’s first EIB


Are you planning to cut down on power consumption, but is not sure as to how to go about it? Soon, you will get all the answers just by dialling 1800 425 5256.

If things go as planned, an Energy Information Bureau (EIB), the first of its kind in the country, will be inaugurated in Thiruvananthapuram next month. A project of the Energy Management Centre (EMC), the Bureau of Energy Efficiency’s (BEE) nodal agency for energy conservation initiatives in the State, the EIB is being set up on the EMC campus at Chavadimukku, near Sreekariyam. The chief job of the bureau will be to clear the doubts of the general public regarding conservation of energy, Electricity Minister Aryadan Mohammed told the Assembly on Thursday in a written reply.

For instance, imagine you are building a house, and you need some advice on efficient electrification. All you have to do is call the bureau, said EMC director K M Dhareshan Unnithan.

‘’It’s not just that. If a consumer is planning to buy a refrigerator or a grinder, the bureau can advice on the most energy-efficient makes available. The bureau aims at instilling an awareness about energy-efficient appliances in the public,’’ Unnithan said.

Or, for instance, if a consumer wishes to know the electricity consumption level in his household, he can provide the bureau with details of electrical appliances, including the number of bulbs and fans, and the bureau will calculate the consumption level for him/her.

The bureau, which is tentatively scheduled to be inaugurated next month, will be open from 10 am to 5 pm daily, Unnithan said.

According to the Electricity Minister, the bureau will liaison with libraries, schools and colleges in a bid to raise awareness about the need to save electricity. The bureau will also distribute booklets on energy conservation and efficiency as part of this, he said. The EMC has been instrumental in energy conservation initiatives in the State including the hyped CFL scheme implemented through the Kerala State Electricity Board (KSEB).

‘Fireline’ drawn at Secretariat

In view of the recent fires in various State Secretariats and the Union Home Ministry, fire safety standards are being strengthened at the Secretariat here.

To improve fire-safety measures in the Secretariat building, which is vulnerable to the threat, a ‘fireline’ has been drawn within certain areas of the campus to facilitate easy movement of fire units.

Parking within this yellow line has been strictly prohibited. A press release from the Department of Information and Public Relations said any vehicle found within the restricted zone would be towed away by the police recovery van without warning.

Legal action

Those found flouting this rule will also be subject to further legal action. They would be held entirely responsible for any inconveniences caused, the release said.

The stringent ruling has been passed to ensure that the zone is left empty, thereby safeguarding those working within the Secretariat building.

The building does not comply with certain fire safety standards that are stipulated by the National Building Code of India. This coupled with the woodwork architecture and coir carpeting renders the age-old structure vulnerable to a blaze.

A forum for youth

When Archana Rath joined the UNDP office in Thiruvananthapuram as an interne, she missed the familiar roads of Delhi, the spicy chaat stalls, the sight of forts, the street shopping and of course, her friends. This new girl in the city decided to replicate an Open Space Forum that she had seen functioning successfully in Pune.

On Saturdays, the drawing room of the UNDP office is filled with giggles and high pitched voices as the group members discuss and debate about art, movies, literature, music and so on. Open Space, housed in a cozy villa that goes by the name Arafa at Eashwaravilasom Road, Vazhuthacaud, is in short a creative platform for youngsters to explore, understand and initiate social change.

This forum is a meeting place for people falling between the age group of 16 to 30 and it is more than just a fun forum. They also aim to have intelligent conversations about things relevant or trivial. “Last week it was more of an ice-breaking and introduction session. We have started a Facebook page and have been getting good response. A total of ten people turned up last Saturday and today we are expecting new faces,” says Thomas M, a founding member of the group.

Mathew Irene is a software professional who recently moved to the city for academic pursuits. Every morning, as he browsed the newspaper, he saw interesting events lined up one after the other. He planned his evenings but had no one to accompany him. “If you are in college or in an office you can make friends, but other than that starting a social life here is close to impossible. Last week, after the Open Space meet up we all went to watch Spiderman movie and it was fun,” says Mathew who is eagerly looking forward to upcoming gatherings.

It is not just a place to make friends or watch movies, it is also a venue to share interesting discussions and for all those who crib about the lack of youth happenings in the city, here is something to look out for!

Motorcycle Diaries, a movie that accounts the journey that Che Guevara undertook across South America when he was in his early twenties, is being screened at the Open Space forum Saturday at 4pm. It would be followed by a discussion about the movie and cups of hot tea and munchies.

Hmm.. India is slowly limping from its 'under developed status' as far as Railways are concerned. We are still in the primitive ages.

The train becomes the first one in the region to be run with bio-toilets and the coaches for one-rake have already arrived Kochuveli from Rail Coach Factory – Kapurthala in Punjab. The bio-toilet developed by Defence Research and Development Organisation using Bio-Digester will prevent human faecal matter from falling on the tracks.

The bio-toilets will collect the faecal matter in a bio-reservoir where bacteria which are capable of degrading the faecal matter into finer components such as gas and water would be cultured and grown. Whenever, the reservoir gets filled, the locomotive speed would come down to 30 kmph and then the collected matter discharged at an appropriate location, railway sources said. The discharge would have no odour.

Indian Railways is planning to have 2,500 more such coaches by 2013.

KILA to train councillors in planning

Chairpersons and vice-chairpersons of the 19 working groups formed by the City Corporation for formulation of 12th Five Year Plan projects will be given a day’s training on the Plan guidelines by the Kerala Institute of Local Administration (KILA) on Monday.

The councillors from all parties have welcomed the changes in guidelines for Plan formulation in local bodies, which call for greater responsibility and effort on the part of the people’s representatives and officials.

A local body will now have to formulate two years’ plans in the first year of the Five Year Plan, in addition to a five-year perspective plan.

“The changes proposed in the new guidelines definitely put a lot of onus on councillors and implementing officers. It has put forth a major challenge as we have been tasked with preparing plans for two years in the first Plan year. But on the whole, I think these proposals will make a positive difference in local-body planning,” Deputy Mayor G. Happykumar said.

K. Maheshwaran Nair, United Democratic Front councillor from Poojappura, said that by formulating plans for two years together, the Corporation could avoid delay in implementation of projects.

“Although in the first Plan year, it means additional work for councillors and officials, from the second year, we will be able to implement the projects right from the start of the financial year, without wasting time on project formulation or approval. From the second Plan year, we only have to prepare one plan for the next year,” Mr Maheshwaran Nair said.

V.S. Padmakumar, Chairman of the Standing Committee on Public Works of the Corporation, said that while the removal of compulsory allocation in various sectors would give more freedom to the local bodies, there was concern that this would affect the production sectors such as agriculture, animal husbandry and small-scale industry.

Allocation

“The new guidelines stipulate no compulsory allocation for any sector, except for the 15 percent allocation for the welfare of women, children and the elderly. The guidelines only say that the allocation for infrastructure development can go up to 55 percent. Although there is a ceiling on infrastructure development, there is concern that the local bodies, especially urban local bodies, will give an unprecedented impetus to activities such as road development and overlook production sectors such as agriculture,” he said.

The councillors welcome the scrapping of technical advisory groups for Plan approval, which, however, has attracted widespread criticism from various quarters. Higher officials of the departments concerned will approve and vet the projects from now on.

“This means that councillors and implementing officers will be more accountable for the projects they prepare as they cannot blame any committee for not receiving approval or for delay in approval,” Mr. Happykumar said.

He said a clear picture on plan formulation and feedback on the new Plan guidelines would emerge after a general meeting of the working group members on Tuesday.

Architecture Department & Mechanical Department of CET can also conduct trainings on Town Planning and ASB on Managing Developmental Projects (..without delay) to councillors of corporation and adjoining panchayats.

Booming within city limits

The real estate sector in Thiruvananthapuram is still concentrating on the heart of the city as people prefer the busy places rather than the periphery.

Now, the trend of investment has changed to real buyers who want to stay in an apartment. The builders are also redesigning apartments by reducing the floor ratio to provide them at an affordable price to the middle-income group.

According to Artech CEO T S Asok, the real estate sector in Thiruvananthapuram is steady when compared to other cities in the State. The investments are happening in premium locations as most people prefer to stay within the city.

“As the land value is very high in Thiruvananthapuram, there is more attraction for apartments. The builders are yet to move outside the city owing to lack of infrastructure,” he said.

There is a need to improve the basic facilities at the outer ring of the city to attract more customers. Good roads, pure drinking water and transportation facilities will help in developing the rural areas, he said.

The demand and supply in Thiruvananthapuram is steady, which provides a steady growth in real estate sector, says Ravichandran, State secretary general, the Confederation of Real Estate Developers’ Association of India (Credai). Over the years, the price was not skyrocketing, but there has been a slight increase, helping the growth of business.

“The prices now range from ` 4,000 to ` 5,000 per square feet in the city and ` 3,000 to ` 4,000 in the peripheral areas. During the earlier days, 80 per cent of the buyers were NRIs who had invested and now real buyers constitute around 50 per cent,” he said.

Builders have started identifying growth centres in the district to start new projects. The places identified are Balaramapuram, Neyyatinkara, Kovalam, Kazhakkoottam, Nedumangad, Attingal, Peroorkada and Vattiyoorkavu.

The ‘heart-of-the-city mania’ of people will change once the outskirts get developed. Oversupply of projects is seen in the Kazhakkoottam area targeting the IT professionals, which is not getting a good response, Ravichandran added.

A R Babu, managing director of Heera Builders, said that several retired persons are now preferring to stay in apartments. As Thiruvananthapuram is one of the most cleanest cities and all basic facilities are available, this is the most preferred place for retirement life.

The trend of bigger area for apartments has changed and now builders are planning budget apartments which can be sold for a price below ` 40 lakh. Around 50 per cent of the buyers prefer budget apartments, 30 to 40 per cent can afford ` 40 to ` 70 lakh and 10 per cent go for luxurious apartments which cost more than ` one crore.

Villa projects are the least preferred owing to the high cost inside the city. Some projects are coming up outside the city, but they too are costly as the land prices are high there too..
