Vellore showcases 'garbage to gold' development mode

Garbage is their business. But they don't want to pile it up. Nor do they want to cart it away to a dump.

This Tamil Nadu district believes that garbage needs to be treated as soon as it is generated, and turned into 'gold' -- an organic, chemical-free manure sold at as high a price Rs. 10 per kg.

Incidentally, Vellore has been declared the cleanest district in the country by the total sanitation programme of the Indian government.

Mohandoss, the district's chief administrator and collector, said Vellore was once a place where, people said, there was no water and no trees.

"Now, it is a changed landscape," he said.

Mohandoss told IANS, "This is only the beginning. At present, we have 10 villages, two town panchayats and five municipality wards covered by the total sanitation and integrated projects programmes. In a year, we hope to extend this to the whole district."

The district, about 150 km west of Chennai, achieved the aim of "total sanitation" with help from the state government, supported by NGOS like the Exnora International and its green arm here, the Exnora Green Cross, an engineering college in the district and temple authorities.

It also received funding and support from the central government's national afforestation and total sanitation programmes.

The visiting media here was also shown the "Vellore model of development", which according to additional principal information officer T.G. Nallamuthu is "a composite model with the possibility of being implemented throughout the country, in villages and towns, institutions and hospitals".

On show were waste management, composting and integrated development projects in a deemed university, the Vellore Institute of Technology, a temple, the Narayani Peedam zero waste scheme in Malaikodi, the Gandhinagar town panchayat and Vellore municipality's public funded projects.

The six projects involve at least 12,000 people and waste generated in the living and working environments of various communities, including farmers and shopkeepers, from the very poor to the affluent.

The waste comes from kitchens, toilets, cattle, temples, hotels, shops and includes degradable and non-degradable plastics, metal and tyres, at least 70 tons of solid and liquid refuse which have to be taken care of every single day for this strong a population.

The Vellore Institute of Technology houses a nearly 7,000-strong student and teacher population. Led by Exnora, it has been engaged in bio-conversion of degradable waste in a shed on the campus.

Interestingly, the 'bio-degrading engine' used by the institute is in the form of 27 cattleheads in its decomposting shed, which constantly munch away at the vegetable waste and convert them into cow dung in just 24 hours, when any other method would have taken weeks.

From the dung comes biogas used to light up hostels. The institute also uses solar energy and is ready to teach everyone clean technology.

The Narayani Peedam is an example of a 21st century temple to the mother goddess 'Narayani', headed by a young 27-year-old known as 'Sakthi Amma'.

With hundreds of devotees in India, Singapore, U.S., Canada, Britain and France, this young seer, in collaboration with the NGO, is piloting projects where elephant dung, cow dung, flowers, temple waste and banana leaves are all turned into organic manure within the precincts of the temple.

This manure is then used to plant hundreds of thousands of trees on the surrounding hills.

Meanwhile, in the village of Palavanchathu, 3,600 families have got together to collect, sort out and generate manure from garbage, providing employment to hundreds.

The Vellore fish market also has a project to compost fish waste. The women of Selamantham village make excellent tea from the biogas that fuels their homes.
news is also old but since there is no dedicated thread so far am posting it here

We also teach Humanities and Science to engineering students in our University as we consider that they should have knowledge in these subjects also. One of the unique courses offered is that of Energy and Environment. This is done in collaboration with four universities, two of which are collaborative universities are from Europe," Mr. Viswanathan said.

Plea to extend Cauvery water scheme to Vellore conceded


VELLORE: Law Minister Durai Murugan has conceded a demand put forth by Vellore MLA C. Gnanasekaran to extend the Cauvery water scheme to Vellore at a function here on Thursday.

At a function to inaugurate the Government Exhibition-2009 at Vellore Fort Ground, the Minister said the MLA would have to wait as it could be declared only during the budget session of the Assembly in March. “It is necessary to bring the Cauvery water scheme to Vellore to find a permanent solution to the likely drinking water crisis here. There is no flood flow in the Palar and I agree with Mr. Gnanasekaran on the forecast that Vellore would face an acute water crisis in a matter of three years from now,” said Mr. Durai Murugan. Further stating that the Kalaignar Health Insurance Scheme was being well accepted by the people.

, Mr. Durai Murugan said he readily accepted Mr. Gnanasekaran’s other demand to include Christian Medical College, Vellore, in the panel of hospitals to treat poor patients under the scheme. .

Welcome to the Fort City of Tamil Nadu. Vellore has the blend of rich heritage and culture representing the ancient Dravidan civilisation. The Web Site about Vellore brings you a variety of information viz. the history, people, tourist places, research centres etc.


Vellore had the previlege of being the seat of the Pallava, Chola, Nayak, Maratha, Arcot Nawabs and Bijapur Sultan Kindoms. It was described as the best and the strongest fortress in the Carnatic War in the 17th Century. It was witnessed the massacre of European soldier during the mutiny of 1806.

Vellore district lies between 12° 15’ to 13° 15’ North latitudes and 78° 20’ to 79° 50’ East longitudes in Tamilnadu State. The geographical area of this district is 6077 sq. k.m. The total population as per 1991 Census is 30,26,432.

Vellore is the Head-Quarters of Vellore District is well connected by Rail and bus routes to major towns of the neighbouring states like Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Kerala. The history of the District assumes a great significance and relevance, as we unfold the glorious past. The Monuments found in the district give a vivid picture of the town through the ages. In the 18th Century Vellore District was the scene of some of the decisive battles fought in Ambur 1749 A.D., Arcot 1751 A.D. and Vandavasi 1768 A.D. as a result of the long – drawn struggle between the English and the French for Supremacy.

One of the monuments of Vellore is the Fort. A very close examination of the stone inscriptions suggests that the Fort in all probability might have been built during the rule of Chinna Bommi Nayak (1526 to 1595 A.D.). The Fort is one of the most perfect speciments of Military architecture in South India. The Jalakandeswarar Temple inside the Fort is a very fine example of Vijayanagar architecture. The Kalyanamantap on the left of the entrance, with intricate carvings and delicacy of execution bears testimony to the engineering marvel and advanced state of sculpture of the times. Another landmark that has put Vellore on the Centre stage of Medical world is the Christian Medical College & Hospital.

The outstanding performance of this district in contributing to the Military service is commendable, as more and more men have enlisted themselves to the Military service, to serve the nationa indomitable spirit and courage. The clock tower in the long bazaar, Vellore was built in 1928 A.D.. A stone inscription in the building reads "VELLORE – FROM THIS VILLAGE 277 MEN WENT TO THE GREAT WAR 1914-18, OF THEM 14 GAVE UP THEIR LIVES" . This is a recorded testimony to the Vellore and Military prowess of men of this area.

Vellore, the Head- Quarters of Vellore District situated in 12' 35' N and 79' 9' E , has a very interesting History of its own. A strategically located town, it is well connected by Rail and bus routes to major towns of the neighboring states like A.P. Karnataka and Kerala. The History of the district assumes a great significance and relevance, as we unfold the glorious past. It was under the sway of various dynasties and rulers, the prominent among them being the Pallavas , Cholas of Uraiyur, the Rashtrakutaa dynasty of Malkhed, Sambuvarayar, the rulers of Vijayanagarm, Mamathas, the Nawabs of the carnatic and the British. The Monuments found in the district give a vivid picture of the town through the ages. In the 18 th Century Vellore District was the scene of some of the decisive bettles fought in Ambur (1749) A.D Arcot (1751) A.D and Vandivasi (1760A.D) as a result of the long -drawn struggle between the English and the French for Supremacy.

One of the monuments of Vellore is the fort and its exact date of construction could not be established, in the absence of proper records. A very close examination of the stone inscriptions suggests that the fort in all probability might have been built during the rule of Chinna. Bommi Nayak (1526 to 1595A. D) . The fort is one of the most perfect specimens of Military architecture in S.India.

The Jalakandeswarar Temple inside the fort is very fine example of Vijayanagar architecture. The Kalyanamantap, on the left of the entrance, with intricate caring and delicacy of exaction, bears testimony to the engineering marble and advanced state of sculpture of the times. Another land mark that has put Vellore on the center stage of Medical world is the Christian Medical College Hospital. Dr . IDA Scudder, the American lady, with a missionary zeal, started her Medical work in 1900 A.D. by setting up a very small Hospital, which in the last hundred years has grown into a premier Medical Institution of international repute. The central prison in Vellore , set up in 1830 A.D. is another Historically important land mark as some eminent personalities and Freedom Fighters like Thiru. Rajaji, Thiru C.N. Annadurai, Thiru. K. Kamaraj , the former presidents of India Thiru. V.V.Giri, Thiru. R.VenkataRaman had served their prison terms here. The other note worthy monuments are the Mausoleums located in Aruganthampoodi area on the Vellore - Arcot road, where the family members of Tippu Sultan were buried and the Muthu mandapam on the banks of river of palar, a memorial raised by the Tamil Nadu Government to honor Vikarama Rja Singha , the last Tamil King who ruled Kandy (Srilanka ) from 1798 to 1815 A.D. He was imprisoned in Vellore fort for 17 years.
The Role Of Vellore District in the freedom struggle
Vellore District had always been on the fore - front in the struggle for freedom. In fact the Sepoy Mutiny of 1806 A.D. that broke out inside the Vellore fort against the British authority is considered to be a prelude to the Great Revolt of 1857, which is often described by some historians as the first war of Independence.

The outstanding performance of this district in contributing to the Military service is Commendable, as more and more men have enlisted themselves to the Military service, to serve the nation with indomitable sprit and courage. The clock tower in the long Bazaar Vellore was built in 1920 A.D. a stone inscription in the building reads "Vellore - From this Village 277 men want to the Great war 1914-18,of them 14 gave up their lives ". This is a recorded testimony the Velour and Military prowess of this area.

Economic, Social AND Cultural Changes in Vellore in the 20th Century

The economic condition of the district in the earlier stages was not very sound , in the absence of the major industries. Thanks to the sustained efforts and Vigorous police of the Govt . Industries like Bharat Heavy Electricals Ltd Ranipet, Tamil Nadu Explosives Ltd., Katpadi. Have been set up. Besides there has been marked growth of small scale industries and Tanneries in the district. This industrial activity has not only generated employment opportunities , but also contributed. Uzhavar to economic growth the recently introduced ./ Uzhavar Sandhai., for instance has benefited the rural poor. giving much needed thrust to the economic. The innovative self help groups of woman are also playing a very useful role in building rural economy and helping rural women to be self reliant.

The social scenario also has changed keeping pace with the changing times. Increased social awareness and upward social growth mark the successful story of the district . The bonded labour, the child labour, etc. Are fast disappearing giving place to new social order. A striking feature of the social change is that the district achieved cent percent literacy owing to the effective implementation of the Arivoli, Movement.

The Samathuvapurams that are being set up, in various parts of the district , herald a new era, as social harmony and peaceful co-existence of different communities are the basic concept of this scheme. The Varumun Kappom Thittam by proving basic infrastructure to rural folk for a free medical examination is indeed a milestone in the social history of Tamil Nadu.

The cultural impact in the society is also very significant same of the traditional arts of the District like the Therukoothu., an art form folk theaters, Kokkalikottai, a famous traditional dance in the district are gradually vanishing. But it is also a matter of solace to note that some of the handicrafts for which the Vellore district are renowned, are still flourishing . Mats making in Walajapet, silk weaving in Arni and the traditional art of pot making in Vellore and places around, are some of the handicrafts which are enable to successfully withstand challenges through ages. The poomalai., scheme that has been introduced by the govt. will not only preserve the traditional handicrafts, but also promote their growth.

Development of Collegiate Education in the district
The Vellore District is one of the leading districts of the state., where the development of the education has been consistently good and commendable. The American Arcot mission, which was established in vellore center in 1853, has the distribution of pioneering the cause of higher education by establishing The American Arcot mission Collage./ afflilated to the University of Madras as early as 1898. This later come to be known as Voorhees Collage. The Sacred Heart College, Tirupattur the Auxilium Collage, ( for women) at Katpadi are other Christian institutions dedicated themselves to the cause of education. The Govt .of Tamil Nadu with an ambitious scheme and ardent desire to promote higher education , setup series of Arts Collages throughout the state. The Muthurangam Govt. Arts Collage, Vellore . Thirumagal mills Govt Arts collage, Gudiyatham Arigar Anna Arts collage for women, Walajah have been established in the rural end poor students.

The private participation in the growth of higher education in the District is also over whelming. The D.K.M. Collage for women Vellore is a fine Example.

Some Muslim Philanthropists and educationists, realising the need to wide open opportunities for the muslim youth to learn higher education, have established educational centers. The Islamiah collage , Vaniayambadi, C. Abdul Hakeem collage, Melvisharam, Mazhrul -uloom collage, Ambur, the Muslim minority Institutions are also contributing their mite in promoting higher education in the District. The Arabic Collage in Vellore town is another important educational center for higher education.

The district is not Lagging behind in providing professional education. The Christian Medical Collage, Vellore. Which is of international repute, is offering even P.G. courses in some specialised branches. By starting an Engineering Collage, the Govt. also has fulfilled the aspiration of the student community of this district. In view of the financial constraints , in the Last few years, the Govt., has encourage self financing Institutions. The Vellore engineering Collage, Vellore , which has many academic distinction to its credit, The Priyadershini engineering college., Vaniyampadi, have come into existence as a result. And there is also Govt . Teachers Training Collage, in Vellore offering both U.G.&P.G. courses. The phenomenal growth of these educational institution in the district only testify the growing demand and the keen interest evinced by the student community for higher and professional Education.
