9.5-acre site identified at Avaniapuram to build air-conditioned facility on the lines of Chennai Trade Centre

Plans are afoot to construct a convention centre at Avaniapuram at an estimated cost of Rs.6 crore. Around 9.5 acres of Corporation land have been identified for this purpose.

This was the major announcement made by Mayor V.V.Rajan Chellappa after unfurling the national flag in the presence of Corporation Commissioner R.Nanthagopal and senior officials during the 67th Independence Day celebrations here on Thursday.

The Mayor said funding for the project was expected to come in from the Tourism Department.

“Encroachments on the site have been removed and preliminary works will commence soon,” he said in an informal chat with reporters.

According to the Corporation Commissioner, the proposed Madurai Convention Centre will be on the lines of the Chennai Trade Centre.

“Even though we have Tamukkam Grounds to host big events, there is no air-conditioned auditorium there. The proposed convention centre will have A/C halls and adequate parking space,” Mr.Nanthagopal said.

Construction of the compound wall at the site was likely to begin this month, he added.
You should never take politicians statements seriously specially our TN leaders. If you want to forget your problems/issues and laugh loudly then you should read their old interviews/statements/announcement etc.,

I remember Thiagaraja Mills family planned to start a convention centre in Madurai but ended up constructing only hotel at the hill (Pasumalai).

It is a news for me that Karumuthu family built the Taj Hotel campus. I was always under the impression that Madura Coats owner built it for himself since he doesnt want to stay in the town which was overcrowded even that time also. After he moved to banglore, it was used as Guest house and then Madura coats used for their school before selling it to Taj Group around 1988/89.

Two new overbridges to come up over Vaigai in 18 months

In a move that is expected to solve traffic congestion in many parts of the city, the corporation has begun the construction of two overbridges over the Vaigai River here.

Work on two overbridges at Arappalayam and Sellur started a month ago, and is expected to be completed in 18 months, according to corporation sources.

The new bridge at Arappalayam is expected to reduce the traffic on the Albert Victor Bridge at Alwarpuram, which is overburdened with vehicles at present. After corporation officials conducted a survey, it was found that the traffic flow rate on the bridge was as high as 16,000 passenger car unit (PCU), causing traffic congestion. The one-way bridge connects Simakkal to Goripalayam, while a parallel bridge connects Yanakkal to Sellur.

A Mathuram, city engineer, said, "Only lighter vehicles like two-wheelers and auto-rickshaws are able to ply on these causeways at present. With the construction of the new overbridge, heavier vehicles like trucks will be able to cross the stretch."

The new bridge at Arappalayam will connect to Aruldasapuram and help reduce traffic by diverting the vehicles. The overbridge at Sellur will connect Sellur to Simakkal.

"The estimated cost of the construction of both overbridges is Rs 3.48 crore. We started the construction a month ago. It will be completed in 18 months," Mathuram added.

At a recent function, district collector L Subramanian said the state highways department will construct three more overbridges in the city, which were proposed one and a half years ago. "To keep traffic under control, places like Kalavasal, Goripalayam and Periyar will get overbridges," said a state highways department official.

Regarding other projects, I read about an hour back in TOI that, simmakkal and goripalayam projects are struck for want of funds to acquire land. Govt has not sanctioned funds yet. Only Kalavasal fly over work will start anytime since no additional land is required for the same.

Funds, land acquisition hit construction of overbridges in city

Delay in sanctioning of funds and allotment of land has slowed down work on the construction of two overbridges and a flyover at three major junctions in the city, which were announced by the government one-and-a-half years ago.

The government had announced construction of two overbridges at Kalavasal, Goripalayam and a flyover at Yanakkal Junction to solve the traffic problems plaguing the city. The state highways department, which had taken up the projects, however, said it would take longer than the scheduled time to complete them since it is waiting for the land acquisition amount to be approved.

"It is very difficult to travel through Goripalayam Junction during peak hours. Due to the presence of the Government Rajaji Hospital many ambulances are seen stuck in between other vehicles as traffic moves at a snail's pace," said M Azhagar, a commuter.

"The flyover to be constructed at Yanakkal will be for a distance of about two km and is estimated to cost around Rs 38 crore. We are waiting for land acquisition to be approved that involves a much longer process," said an official of the state highways department.

Officials also said that another bridge over Vaigai river would be constructed at Goripalayam parallel to Albert Victor (AV) Bridge from Tamukkam to Yanakkal. The project is also awaiting land acquisition approval from the government.

In case of the overbridge at Kalavasal, officials said that work would commence soon. "Since there was no land acquisition needed to construct a two level bridge at Kalavasal, work is expected to start soon at this junction," said an official.

Organs of deceased give new lease of life for recipients in Chennai

The first green corridor created by the Madurai city and district police from Uthangudi to the airport on Wednesday afternoon ensured that the liver and heart from a donor at Meenakshi Mission Hospital and Research Centre (MMHRC) reached recipients in Chennai in time.

The deceased, M. Damotharan (29) hailing from Nilakottai, sustained grievous head injuries when he was travelling on a two-wheeler on Kodaikanal Road on May 31. He was declared ‘brain dead’ by neurosurgeons at the MMHRC on Tuesday afternoon following which his relatives were counselled for organ donation. They agreed to donate his organs to hospitals in Madurai and Chennai.

The MMHRC management said that it intimated the Tamil Nadu Cadaver Transplant Programme Committee in Chennai about the donation and it reverted within two hours, giving the green signal to harvest the organs.

As the harvesting was done from 11.30 a.m. on Wednesday, the police made preparations for the green corridor and stationed personnel at every junction on the Ring Road to keep it traffic-free.

“Our focus was on the smooth transit to the airport as well as safety since the 19-km-stretch is usually a busy one and is full of potholes. As soon as the boxes were loaded into the ambulance at the hospital, we alerted the police to cordon off traffic,” explained T.K. Murugesan, Assistant Commissioner (Traffic).

The first ambulance carrying the heart left the hospital at 12.55 p.m. and the second one with the liver left at 1.25 p.m. and both reached the airport in less than 20 minutes, against the usual time of about 40 minutes. The ambulances were escorted by a police vehicle all through the route.

The heart was taken to Frontier Lifeline Hospitals and the liver to MIOT Hospital, Chennai, where surgeries were already under way on recipients, and transplanted.

“Since the heart needs to be transplanted within one and a half hours after it is harvested, it was taken earlier. The liver can be kept for a longer period and transplantation can be performed till eight hours,” said K. Sampath Kumar, Head, Nephrology Department, who oversaw the harvesting.

The kidneys of the deceased were donated to two patients undergoing treatment at the MMHRC and the eyes were given to Aravind Eye Hospital in the city.

Going all out for neutrino research

Just a few years ago, we witnessed how a national project, the India-based Neutrino Observatory (INO), which is to study fundamental particles called neutrinos, was subject to a barrage of questions from environmentalists, politicians and others ever since it was cleared. The project, which involves the construction of an underground laboratory, was initially to be located in the Nilgiris but later, on grounds that it was too close to tiger habitat, was moved to a cavern under a rocky mountain in the Bodi West Hills region of Theni district, about 110 kilometres west of Madurai in Tamil Nadu.

The already much-delayed and important physics project needs to be explained.

Reclaiming India’s position


India has been among the pioneers in neutrino research, the first of such laboratories having been established in the 1960s. We led neutrino research when our physicists used a gold mine at Kolar in Karnataka to set up what was then the world’s deepest underground laboratory. This was called the Kolar Gold Field Lab. In 1965, it enabled researchers to detect atmospheric neutrinos. In 1992, when the mine became uneconomical, the laboratory was shut down. With that, we lost our advantage in understanding the most mysterious particle in the universe. INO may reclaim this advantage and our global leadership.

Most of the advanced countries are already working vigorously in neutrino science with dedicated labs. These include the United States, Russia, France, Italy, China, Japan and South Korea. India is set to not only join this league, but also become a key player in global efforts in neutrino science. The Magnetized Iron Calorimeter (ICAL) being set up at INO will be among the largest ever in the world, weighing over 50,000 tonnes.

In 2011, we visited the now much talked about Fermi Lab’s neutrino study laboratory. Located about 60 kilometres from the main city of Chicago, the laboratory has been pioneering some major work in understanding elementary particles including neutrinos. In this laboratory — which is deep within the ground and accessible through a large elevator — we could witness the sense of pride among the staff for having such a facility for advanced particle study which could unravel the universe. A professor said, “Fermi Lab is the pride for Chicago. We are happy to see Fermi Lab so close to the city — it makes it easily accessible to us and students.”

INO is designed to go much beyond Fermi Lab in some aspects of neutrino research; to us, this should be a moment of our national pride.

Widely occurring particle

Neutrinos, first proposed by Swiss scientist Wolfgang Pauli in 1930, are the second most widely occurring particle in the universe, only second to photons, the particle which makes up light. In fact, neutrinos are so abundant among us that every second, there are more than 100 trillion of them passing right through each of us — we never even notice them.

This is the reason why INO needs to be built deep into the earth — 1,300 metres into the earth. At this depth, it would be able to keep itself away from all the trillions of neutrinos produced in the atmosphere and which would otherwise choke an over-the-ground neutrino detector. Neutrinos have been in the universe literally since forever, being almost 14 billion years old — as much as the universe itself.

Neutrinos occur in three different types, or flavours – v{-e}, vμ and vτ. These are separated in terms of different masses. From experiments so far, we know that neutrinos have a tiny mass, but the ordering of the neutrino mass states is not known and is one of the key questions that remain unanswered till today. This is a major challenge INO will set to resolve, thus completing our picture of the neutrino.

Neutrinos are very important for our scientific progress and technological growth for three reasons. First, they are abundant. Second, they have very feeble mass and no charge and hence can travel through planets, stars, rocks and human bodies without any interaction. In fact, a beam of trillions of neutrinos can travel thousands of kilometres through a rock before an interaction with a single atom of the rock and the neutrino occurs. Third, they hide within them a vast pool of knowledge and could open up new vistas in the fields of astronomy and astrophysics, communication and even in medical imaging, through the detector spin-offs.

While this should be a moment of joy, there is also some scepticism, partly arising due to the fact that the neutrino, though so abundant, is a silent stranger to most people.

Public misconceptions

Can neutrinos cause cancer? Not at all! Neutrinos are the least harmful of all elementary particles, as they almost never react with solid bodies. The mean free path for iron, or the average distance a neutrino will travel in say an iron rod, before interacting with an atom, is about 1 light year (9,460,730,472,580 km). Needless to say, with the human body being less than 2 metres in height, any harmful effect of neutrino is near impossible.

A few people with whom we have discussed this topic, tend to confuse the “neutrino” for the “neutron”. This has also led to the confusion that neutrinos can be weaponised, which is far from the truth. The neutron bomb, which many discuss, is dangerous but has nothing to do with harmless neutrinos and is made based on a technology around the neutrons, particles which are much heavier. To put this in perspective, the mass of a neutron is 1.67x10{+-}{+2}{+7}kg while the mass of a neutrino is of the order of 1x10{+-}{+3}{+7}kg . Hence, a neutrino is about 17 billion times lighter than a neutron. The two are incomparable.

There is further misconception that laboratory generated neutrinos, fancily termed as “factory made neutrinos”, are more dangerous than naturally abundant neutrinos. Scientifically, this is not true. Neutrinos are fundamental particles; there is nothing such as a natural and an artificial aspect to them. It is like saying that electricity at the same voltage, from a coal-based plant can give one a more severe shock than electricity produced by a hydroelectric plant.

What can understanding neutrinos give us? A lot, actually.

Key role in science

First, neutrinos may have a role to play in nuclear non-proliferation through the remote monitoring of nuclear reactors. The plutonium-239 which is made via nuclear transmutation in the reactor from uranium-238 can potentially be used in nuclear devices by terrorist groups. Using appropriate neutrino detectors, the plutonium content can be monitored remotely and used to detect any pilferage. Neutrino research can be our answer to ensure that no terror group ever acquires nuclear weapons.

Second, understanding neutrinos can help us detect mineral and oil deposits deep in the earth. Neutrinos tend to change their “flavour” depending on how far they have travelled and how much matter they have passed through in the way. Far more importantly, we believe that this same property might help us detect early geological defects deep within the earth, and thereby might be our answer to an early warning system against earthquakes. This is where an area of Geoneutrinos is applicable. First found in 2005, they are produced by the radioactive decay of uranium, thorium and potassium in the Earth’s crust and just below it. Rapid analysis of these Geoneutrinos by neutrino monitoring stations — a process called Neutrino Tomography — could provide us vital seismological data which can detect early disturbances and vibrations produced by earthquakes.

Data transmission

Third, as we now know, neutrinos can pass right through the earth. They may open up a faster way to send data than the current ‘around the earth’ model, using towers, cables or satellites. Such a communication system using neutrinos will be free of transmission losses as neutrinos rarely react with the atoms in their path. This can open up new vistas for telecom and Internet services. Some scientists further believe that if there is any extraterrestrial form of life, neutrinos will also be the fastest and most trusted way to communicate with them.

Fourth, neutrinos are the information bearers of the universe — which are almost never lost in their path. India’s effort in studying neutrinos at INO may help us unravel the deepest mystery of the universe — why there is more matter than antimatter in the universe.

Some scientists believe that formidable neutrino research can help us understand dark matter. Dark matter and dark energy make up 95 per cent of the universe, far more predominant than ordinary matter in the universe — but we hardly understand it. Neutrinos are the only way to detect this great mystery which may completely alter our understanding of the universe and physics. Searches for this dark matter can only be carried out in INO.

We believe that the neutrino is our mode of access to some of the most unimaginable technologies, and therefore, with INO, India is poised to take its rightful place at the helm of neutrino research. For example, the particle detectors developed for the neutrino experiment at INO can also be used to detect the photons in positron emission tomography (PET) which is used to identify cancerous tumours.

Hundreds of thousands of years ago, a species, Homo sapiens , went about rubbing two small rocks until they ended up producing the spark and then the fire which helped man master the planet. Today, we stand at a point in time when we are on the verge of manipulating fundamental particles with the possibility that they may allow us to master the universe.

(Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam is a former President of India. Srijan Pal Singh is an adviser to Dr. Kalam.)

The research may create a faster way to send data than the current ‘around the earth’ model using towers, cables or satellites, creating opportunities for telecom and Net services.

India lost its lead in neutrino studies when research tapered off in the 1990s. The

India-based Neutrino Observatory can now help

it reclaim this advantage and its global leadership in understanding this mysterious particle

It’s time Madurai woke up from stupor

Quote:
Nasscom man wants the city to follow Calicut model

He is one of the few people living outside Madurai who passionately want to develop south Tamil Nadu as a preferable destination for investors. As Senior Director of National Association of Software and Service Companies (Nasscom), he has been involved in rallying stakeholders around to have IT presence in tier II and III cities and towns. K. Purushothaman, who got his MBA degree from the Department of Management Studies, Madurai Kamaraj University, spoke to S. Annamalai on why Madurai should gear up to attract investments in the IT sector capitalising on the current favourable climate.

Mr. Purushothaman strongly feels that the challenges for Madurai are internal and not external. Stakeholders have a larger responsibility to brand Madurai as a favourable destination for investment. “Collectively, all of us are responsible for the present state of affairs. Identify the common DNA and create visibility for the ancient city.” He wants Madurai to replicate the Kozhikode (Calicut) model, Calicut IT Initiative (Citi), a people’s initiative to “place Calicut in the radars of IT companies.” The Citi, besides marketing the tier II city as a potential IT destination, also interacts with infrastructure providers to remove bottlenecks in development of the industry.

The ‘Citi’ model

“Citi is a model created by stakeholders, including doctors, realtors and industrialists, to brand Calicut. It has now facilitated the creation of two IT parks and one of them has been floated by casual workers,” Mr. Purushothaman says, adding that a similar initiative is essential for Madurai, which has lot of potential as a destination for both tourists and investors. “If you create one job in the IT industry, four other jobs are created around it.”

Global Investors’ Meet

The Nasscom Director points to a favourable climate prevailing to attract investors in the IT field, especially in the light of the forthcoming Global Investors’ Meet in Chennai. The Nasscom has already placed certain demands before the government to make investment in IT companies attractive in tier II and III cities of Tamil Nadu. It has sought property tax waiver for investors; an exclusive nodal officer; a single window system to clear projects and uninterrupted power and water supply as is now done for auto majors in and around Chennai. In return, the investors could give a commitment to provide a specified number of jobs in proportion to the investment in the next five years.

A product hub?

Mr. Purushothaman favours a unified approach to address the challenge to make south Tamil Nadu an IT destination. It can be developed as a product hub, with lot of reputed educational institutions around. He wants the stakeholders to chalk out an action plan for branding and visibility and wonders why it cannot happen in Madurai when a small town like Nagercoil can boast of three good IT companies.

Calicut model - This was discussed by us in SSC, way back and We've suggested the same with Mr.Sivaraja Ramanathan sir, during Mamadurai Potruvom meet.. Happy that NASSCOM understands why Madurai needs Calicut model - It's an integrated effort, involving various proffessionals, right from Doctors to Travel agents, in bringing development to our city..Hope we initiate it as earlier as possible.
