Does it also mean that the light represents the city population on a comparison or the amount of electricity consumed by the respective cities?

So simple but it reveals a lot. Much better than all those statistics and comparisons like area/population of municipality UA etc. Kannur and Thalassery are close to a merger. I can even see mahe just to the south of tly. Guruvayoor can be seen north west of Thrissur. Is it changanassery south of Kottayam? Kollam is as bright as tvm if we ignore those less brighter suburban areas around trivandrum.

Tamilnadu appears to be as urbanized as it is publicized. So many towns and cities. Kerala has only a few towns that too along the national highway.

Thanks simplicity for uploading this. From where you got this?

You are welcome Aslesh.
But I don't think it is practical to compare Kerala cities with Tamil Nadu. and other part of India. because they have industries and factories who consume more electricity. and our small households are covered under the canopy of coconut trees. so it is not so brighter like the more open landscape of Tamil Nadu.

this is the link. You can zoom. to any region.

In Kerala's case you can say it is city population. we don't have any difference between cities on electricity consumption

The Map will be brighter with white light as per the news below. The electricity consumption to come down as well:
  • 12 lakh CFLs given away

  • Bid to reduce power consumption

  • No compromise on lumen comfort: KSEB

KOLLAM: The Compact Fluorescent Lamp (CFL) distribution scheme launched by Chief Minster V.S. Achuthanandan on March 15 in the southern region of the Kerala State Electricity Board is receiving huge patronage from KSEB domestic category consumers.

The southern region comprises the districts of Thiruvananthapuram, Kollam, Pathanamthitta and Kottayam. So far, over 12 lakh CFLs have been distributed in the districts through the scheme.

K. Radhakrishnan, KSEB Chief Engineer (Distribution-South), said that in Thiruvananthapuram urban circle 2.32 lakh CFLs and Thiruvananthapuram rural circle, 4.51 lakh CFLs were distributed. In the rest of the region, the figures were: Kollam circle (1.17 lakh), Kottarakara circle (1.76 lakh), Pathanamthitta circle (77 lakh) and Kottayam circle (1.52 lakh).

Though the scheme was launched on March 15, the distribution began in Kollam circle on March 22 and in Pathanamthitta on March 20.

Distribution of CFLs touched a record at Thattamala under the Pallimukku section office in Kollam circle. Circle Deputy Chief Engineer K. Prabhakaran Nair said that on Thursday, 6,086 CFLs were distributed to 3,043 consumers at Thattamala.

The scheme is a multi-pronged measure to involve the people in an electricity consumption reduction programme. Each domestic category consumer will get two 14W CFLs at Rs.15 each in lieu of two 60W ordinary bulbs.

Through the exchange, each consumer can reduce the load by 92 watts without sacrificing the ‘lumen comfort,' Mr. Radhakrishnan said.

The scheme is intended to be presented to the Clean Development Mechanism Executive Board for approval of carbon credits. The Board will then verify the KSEB claim.

Sorry Marathaman. Don't know about any new temples in Kerala.
But I can happily and proudly say that many old temples under private control and organisations are undergoing renovation.

This is happening at a time when a bunch of Atheists led Govt. is trying to have full control over the temples which are under the various Devaswom boards.They have their eyes on the offerings from the devotees to the temples but are not at all interested in the welfare of the pilgrims. This is most evident in the case of Sabarimala.

Thumbs down ‘Manpower crisis affects ayurveda industry'

http://www.thehindubusinessline.com/...2653671900.htm

Over 20,000 trained therapists required.

The manpower crisis unfolding in the ayurveda industry was highlighted at the three-day Global Ayurveda Summit, which commenced here on Wednesday with most of the speakers pointing out that the sector is not getting qualified and trained personnel to support its expanding business operations.

In his address, the Kerala Chief Minister Mr V.S. Achuthanandan, said that his government was looking into the manpower shortage issue.

He pointed out that India alone needed 20,000 trained therapists while the mushrooming Ayurvedic spas in the US, Germany, Russia, Singapore and Malaysia and West Asian countries would demand trained hands to the tune of several lakhs.

For the next few years, the industry's annual requirement of trained therapists would exceed 20,000 personnel.

But, the problem is that there are no sufficient qualified hands. There's a huge gap between the demand and supply, says the Convenor, Health and Tourism Panel, CII, Dr S. Sajikumar.

Dr Sajikumar, who is also the Managing Director of Dhathri Ayurveda Pvt Ltd, said his company is using the global summit platform to recruit 2,000 hands to meet its immediate expansion plans.

The company, which would soon extend its Ayurveda Beauty and Slimming (ABS) Clinic to the rest of India and West Asia , is scouting for 160 Ayurvedic physicians, 60 pharmacists, 1,200 female and male therapists, 100 beauticians, 300 dieticians, 100 physiotherapists, 100 managers, 100 sales representatives and 60 support staff.

According to Mr Sanjay Mariwala, Chairman, Kerala State Council, CII, the Indian herbal market is registering extremely significant growth numbers.

It has the potential to reach Rs 14,500 crore by 2012 and exports may touch Rs 9,000 crore. Globally, traditional medicine is a $1-trillion economy.

Currently, the Indian herbal market size is estimated at Rs 7,000 crore. Over Rs 3,600 crore worth herbal raw materials and medicines are exported .

Ayurveda has huge scope for further development as India's share in the global trade of medicinal plants is just about 2.5 per cent compared with China's 13 per cent, he said.

The Chief Minister had attributed that one of the main challenges that the industry faced to the lack of Ayurvedic educational institutions.

The Government is in the process of evolving suitable policy frameworks to promote Ayurvedic education. The options being weighed include the promotion of Ayurvedic nursing in a big way, he said.

Aslesh, I don't think that is Mahe, considering the proportionate distance from Tly to Mahe and Kannur & size of Mahe, it might be came under the gloom of Tly itself. And the point u mentioned is Most probably Vadakara.

I am also quite surprised at this. The source is from differnt newspapers. I compiled the news from Hindu, Manorama and Deepika.

Actually, Kollam has an increased amountof 120 crores compared to last year. Calicut should have had more revenue as the population and organization/Biz/Offices in the city are more than Kollam. Anyway, the news is correct as the same amount is quoted in more than one news source.

You can check the last couple of days Hindu newspapers (Online) for confirmation.

Yep it is vadakara. I had checked it in the website you provided but forgot to mention it here. I didn't thought Vadakara would be this small compared to thalassery.

That must be due to the 170 crore project to draw water from Thenmala dam.

Yes..170 crore out of the 254 is going to the prestigious project of drawing water from Thenmala. This is a dream project of NK Premachandran who is the Irrigation minister and MLA from Chavara. Water from Sasthancotta lake becomes secondary once this project becomes a reality.

I believe Kollam corporation has done well with the remaining 84 crores as beautification and infrastructure development of the city has been highlighted though the amounts earmarked are not huge. Anyway, the new Mayor has a tough task in hand before the next civic electoions.

BEML unit to be opened next month...

PALAKKAD: The new manufacturing unit of BEML Ltd. (formerly Bharat Earth Movers Limited) at Kanjikode near here will be inaugurated by Defence Minister A.K. Antony on May 9.

Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan, Industries Minister Elamaram Karim and other dignitaries will be attending the inaugural function.

The construction of the unit at Kanjikode in the 350-acre land given by the State government is getting completed. BEML Ltd., under the Ministry of Defence, will manufacture defence equipment, including military wagons, floating bridges, parts and aggregates for rail and metro cars.

In the second phase of the project, the new complex would manufacture indigenously designed and developed aluminium and stainless steel 100-tonne freight wagons and other products, company sources said.

The foundation stone for the BEML unit at Kanjikode was laid by Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan on January 18, 2009.

Over the last four decades, BEML, a Mini-Ratna Category-1 company, has been working in the field of design, development and manufacture of heavy earth moving equipment, rail coaches and metro cars and various types of heavy duty trucks for defence.
