Maybe it is the other way around...She lost her job only after she announced a massive paper project for south...

Not sure what might happen if the project actually takes off....

Is real Madurai as bad as the reels portray?

If so, there must be some justice in Tamil films using ‘Naanum Maduraikaaranthaanda’ dialogue



Quote:
“A young girl was allegedly burnt alive by her parents in Madurai in Tamil Nadu on Gandhi Jayanthi day (October 2, 2014) for wanting to marry a Dalit boy. The only way to eradicate such monstrous acts is giving death penalty to those found guilty,” said Markandey Katju, Chairman, Press Council of India, on his blog as well as Facebook account on October 4 referring to the suspicious death of a girl at Usilampatti near here.

Detesting such inhuman acts and casteist prejudices that turn people so violent that they go to the extent of killing even their children, Mr. Katju, a former Supreme Court judge, said: “We must strike terror in the hearts of these barbaric, feudal-minded killers by hanging them. That alone will send a message that such horrendous acts are simply unacceptable in the modern age.”

This comment had made Madurai hit the headlines, one more time, for wrong reasons. Barely a week later, a 17-year-old Dalit boy from Tirumangalam near here lodged a police complaint accusing a few Caste Hindus in his village of assaulting him because they could not stand to see him walk with his footwear on and sit on a bench alongside men belonging to other castes in a teashop.

The complaint was made just two months past the conviction of a Caste Hindu youth for committing a similar atrocity against a 13-year-old Dalit boy at Vadugapatti near Usilampatti in June last year. A special court for hearing cases related to protection of civil rights had sentenced the youth to one-year rigorous imprisonment for forcing the school student to carry the footwear on his head.

The case gained momentum and ended in conviction only after a few Dalit organisations intervened and demanded justice for the little boy by pasting posters across the village and charging the police of soft pedalling with the accused. Despite the conviction, similar and even more gruesome atrocities continue to be reported from various parts of the district.

R. Alagumani, an advocate practising in the Madras High Court Bench here, points out that the Scheduled Castes and Scheduled Tribes (Prevention of Atrocities) Act, 1989, states that complaints made under it should be investigated by officers not below the rank of a Deputy Superintendent of Police. It also prescribes punishment for public servants who fail to perform their statutory duties.

“Yet, we see that the police, many a times, do not attempt to curb such atrocities with an iron hand thereby giving a leeway for recurrence of such offences. A few months ago, a Caste Hindu outfit had put up a wall painting in Tamil near the Madurai Central Jail stating ‘Inathodu seraadhavan pinathirkku samam’ (Those who do not identify themselves with their community are equivalent to a corpse).

“Police should act against such offensive messages. But they don’t, possibly, for want of a formal complaint. It is these kind of messages that develop hatred between people belonging to different castes and project Madurai in bad light,” he feels.

Radwan Azam, a non-resident Indian from Dubai, says he viewed Madurai as “a land of violence where blood-thirsty people roam around with machetes as an indispensable part of their outfit and where caste and creed matter the most than love, affection and relationships.”

All I knew about Madurai, until my recent visit, was through Tamil movies and the famous dialogue ‘Naanum Maduraikaaranthaanda’ creates an image that violence is an inborn quality of Madurai residents. Movies show Madurai as a land where blood flows like water. I hope that it is not so in reality and that incidents of honour killing are only stray events which can be prevented,” he says.

Again and again people are calling any towns around Madurai as Madurai only. This gives very bad name to Madurai city.

There are some towns/villages have history of violent incidents. But when its reported, its reported as Madurai which people will assume as Madurai city.

The city is having lesser crime rate than Chennai city.

Enanu solrathu ... Though city wise comparison of crime rate is a bad precedent ,as you said crimes are happening more in important cities in TN , & explicit projection of MDU is highly condemnable ...

Filmmakers ,should introspect for the betterment of their audiences ,rather than simply blaming this against freedom of expression ...

Our HC bench ,also condemned different forms of violence in films ...

HC upset over glorification of sex, violence in cinema

Yes. you r right..Some places (no affense on people belong to these places) where communal violences were originited in the recenet decades are Rajapalayam (virudhunagar dist), Melavazhavu (near melur, madurai dist), Paramakudi (Ramnad dist)..but all of them will be associated in medias as madurai region...If employments are generated, even these issues will be solved..General people who live in madurai city don't have time for all these things..Similarly movies which were shooted in neighboring districts also will have a diagloue of "naanum maduraithanda"..Oneway it is good, if all man power is used in +ve positive manner, growth will be for everybody...

India's ambitious 'neutrino' project awaits PMO approval

Quote:
India's ambitious project intending to study the properties of atmospheric neutrinos through an underground lab in Theni district of Tamil Nadu at a total cost of Rs 1,500 crore is awaiting a final nod from the Prime Minister's office.

"We have done all the pre-approval work such as fencing, constructing basic necessary buildings at Madurai. But the first step towards the main project needs PMO approval and that's what we have been waiting for," said Naba K Mondal, chief of India-based Neutrino Observatory (INO) project.

Mondal was here to present a paper on the INO project at the 80th annual meet of Indian Academy of Sciences, which concluded here yesterday.

Christened 'India-based Neutrino Observatory' by the Department of Atomic Energy, the project will study atmospheric neutrinos some 1,300 metres below ground near Pottipuram village of Theni district and is expected to provide precise measurement of neutrino mixing parameters.

INO was initially allotted Rs 83 crore to start various pre-project activities at the site.

The proposed INO comprises two underground laboratory caverns with a rock cover of more than 1000 metre all around to house detectors and control equipment, for which a two km access tunnel would be driven under a mountain, according to the INO website.

While the project was delayed in finding a site for itself, since earlier attempts were confronted by environmental issues. "We are already late by seven to eight years. If only we had started eight years back, we would have been in an advanced stage by now."

Recalling yesteryears when Indian scientists had the opportunity to use Kolar Gold Field mines for the study of neutrinos, Mondal said, they were planning to celebrate 50 years of studying atmospheric neutrinos next year.

More than 30 research institutions across India like Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Chennai, Tata Institute of Fundamental Research, Mumbai, Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, Mumbai, Saha Institute of Nuclear Physics, Kolkata, Indira Gandhi Centre for Atomic Research, Kalpakkam, Harish Chandra Research Institute, Allahabad and some IITs are coordinating with INO for the project.
