If we plan this kind of protest we can get good publicity in newspapers and tv9

Bangalore most preferred job city for engineering students

Quote:
According to employability measurement and recruitment firm Aspiring Minds Research Cell, about 72 per cent of the engineering students surveyed voted for Bangalore as the most preferred destination to work in.

"In India, Bangalore is the engineers' Mecca. It offers growth, options and a community of like-minded people. Bangalore has undoubtedly the largest base in terms of IT companies, opportunities and an existing engineering population," Aspiring Minds Founder and Director Himanshu Aggarwal said.

Bangalore was followed by Delhi, which was preferred by 32 per cent of the respondents, while Hyderabad was the favourite among 30 per cent of the students surveyed.

At fourth place is Pune, with 30 per cent of the respondents voting for the city, followed by Chennai, which was favoured by 23 per cent of students.

Mumbai was sixth in the list of preferred cities for engineers.

Regional preferences emerge strongly, as students from the South, West and North of the country voted for Bangalore, Pune and Delhi, respectively, as their favourite city. For easterners, Bangalore was the favourable option. Chandigarh and Mysore also emerged as preferred destinations for engineering students in the survey.

The survey took into account the views of 19,000 engineering students across India. It was undertaken to determine the city preferences of students and allowed the respondents to specify up to three cities.

Amphibious planes could soon take off from Bangalore lakes

These aircrafts do not require runways to take off. Instead, they can get airborne from say an Ulsoor or Hebbal lake. They are the Russian-made Pelican amphibious seaplanes which will soon be entering the Indian market to cater the tourism sector.

The amphibious seaplanes — Pelican-2 and Pelican- 4 — which are two and four-seaters, respectively, are developed by Russia’s International Institute of Advanced Aerospace Technologies and are being marketed in India by Millennium Aero Dynamics Private Limited.

The aircraft will be manufactured in India by Hosur-based Taneja Aerospace and Aviation. “The amphibious seaplanes (Pelican-2 and Pelican-4) can be used for tourism, leisure management, water sports, training and river-based transportation. The Kerala government has evinced interest in buying the aircraft for tourism purpose. Besides, we also want to target the flying schools in the country,” said M Balaraman, associate director, Millennium Aero Dynamics Private Limited.

He said that the aircraft can provide good logistics support without depending on any aviation or marine infrastructure as it is capable of taking-off or landing on unprepared roads, fields or water bodies including rivers, lakes, sea and ocean.

“The aircraft can take off from just 250 m, which means it is possible to operate the aircraft even from Ulsoor or Hebbal Lake,” he said.

Another specialty of the aircraft is that it runs on regular petrol or diesel. “Operators need not worry about the ever-rising Aviation Turbine Fuel prices as Pelican-2 runs on diesel and Pelican-4 on petrol,” said Balaraman.

Karnataka govt says it cannot slake Bangalore’s thirst

Quote:
Bangaloreans better brace for severe water shortage this summer. The state government has admitted that there are limited options for supply of water to the city. S Suresh Kumar, minister for the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB), said that providing adequate supply, especially to Bangalore east, north and north-west, would be hard.

Kumar was speaking after the matter was raised in the legislative assembly during question hour by Congress MLA Ramalinga Reddy. He expressed helplessness, and admitted that despite the efforts of the BWSSB, meeting the city’s demand for water entirely would not be possible. He assured the assembly that a meeting of city MLAs would be convened to address the problem.

Among others highlighting the problem of water in the city were NL Narendrababu, KJ George, NA Haris and other city MLAs.
Replying to concerns raised by the MLAs, Kumar said, “Yes, there is a water problem. We are attempting to solve it, and we have a three-pronged strategy. First, we will take steps for equitable distribution of water; second, we will expedite work on the Cauvery 4th stage II phase; and third, a committee will explore alternative sources of water.”

The minister added that although the Cauvery 4th stage II phase project was approved in 2006, work on it did not begin until 2009. Under the earlier schedule, work was supposed to be completed by March 2012. Measures have now been taken to speed up work, and it could be completed by the end of this year, the minister said. “With this project, we will bring 500 million litres per day (MLD) of additional water to the city. It could take care of half the city’s water problem,” he said.

Last year, the BWSSB attempted to address the water shortage by digging borewells. That did not solve the crisis, as the water table had sunk, and many of the borewells ran dry. However, the BWSSB minister has not ruled out digging even more borewells this year.

“If necessary, we will dig some borewells and also take measures to supply water through tankers. To solve the Bangalore city water problem permanently, we have set up an expert committee headed by former MD of the BWSSB, BN Thyagaraj, to identify alternative water sources for Bangalore. It has sought 18 months to submit recommendations,” Suresh Kumar said.

Replying to a query, the minister also said that measures are being taken to fill the Tippagondahalli (TG) reservoir from other sources, as at least a third of the city’s water concerns could be taken care of by a filled up TG Halli tank. He added that the city had already crossed the maximum allocation possible from Cauvery River, so it would not be possible to seek a bigger allocation for the city from the Cauvery.

George recommended that dedicated power lines supply adequate power to water pumping stations, as shortage of power could aggravate the water crisis.

I remember reading way back in the papers about this grand plan by the government (can't remember which one) about the connecting of all the rivers in India to create a perennial source of water which could solve the water and irrigation crisis facing millions of farmers and people all over India.What even happened to that plan? Was it all just hot air?

River interlinking project. The plan was real enough, it was proposed in the NDA government's time. But is encountered lot of opposition later due to many reasons, and the costs are prohibitive too. No real progress has been made on the project yet.

There are serious environmental concerns with river interlinking. It's not for nothing that the proposal has been shelved. There are other ways of solving our water problems but the key issue is that India's cities require more and more water. The reason is rooted in the fact that India's cities have come up where commerce wanted them to be. This is creating conflict because water has to be brought from longer and longer distances, depriving villagers of water for irrigation and agriculture. The bigger our 8 big cities become, given that we have embraced the urban sprawl model of the USA, the bigger the problem its going to become.
