3 kills in 2 months: A cannibal tiger is on the prowl in Kanha


Bhopal:

A cannibal tiger is on the prowl in Kanha. The tiger that killed and ate two subadults on Tuesday is believed to have hunted and eaten a tigress on January 19 this year.

This strange behaviour has prompted MP wildlife department to initiate a study on cannibalism among tigers in protected areas. Officials say tigers killing tigers is natural, but a tiger killing and eating only tigers is strange — that too when the forest has no shortage of prey. “It’s a natural process through which tigers control population. It is not possible to monitor the tiger 24×7, but we are observing it. Yesterday our patrolling squad saw the tiger feeding on its kill,” said Kanha’s field director L Krishnamurthy. “Yes, it’s the same one that had killed and eaten a tigress last month,” he said.

Two sub-adult tigers were found ripped to shreds in Kanha National Park on Tuesday. According to an official release, a patrolling squad spotted the carcasses at Kanhari area around 9.20am. An adult tiger was found sitting on the two kills. “Cannibalism in tigers is not uncommon but the circumstances under which a tiger is feeding on its own need to be studied thoroughly. In Kanha, the prey base is adequate. The most compelling thing would be to examine the male-female ratio,” said Dilip Kumar, APCCF (wildlife).

In the January case, foresters had found the remains of a tigress. Senior forest officials determined it was a case of cannibalism.

Make sign language ‘official’, hearing-impaired tell Centre


The launch of the second edition of the Indian sign language dictionary here saw the demand for making sign language “official” resurface, as representatives of the deaf and hearing-impaired sought the government’s intervention in the matter. Pointing that there was no immediate plan to do so, minister for social justice and empowerment, Thaawarchand Gehlot said that the matter was under “examination” as any such move must be backed by adequate interpreters and trainers to make it a widely used medium of communication.

At the release of the 6,000 word dictionary, National Association of Deaf, president A S Narayanan reiterated that the social justice ministry must work towards making sign language an official language. The demand has been raised by NAD repeatedly. The release of the second edition of Indian sign language dictionary is also seen as a step to expand the reach of the sign language and its functional use.

As per census 2011, there are 50, 71,007 deaf people and 19, 98,535 with speech disabilities in India. However, data shows that as of now there are just about 325 Indian sign language interpreters listed with the government’s Indian Sign Language Research and Training Centre (ISLRTC). This directory of ISL interpreters has been compiled from lists of various organisations. The directory has been put out on the ISLRTC website for those who need interpreters. Of the 325 interpreters, 263 are categorised as active interpreters, 47 as non-active interpreters and 15 as uncertified interpreters.

From this year, ISLRTC is starting a two year diploma in Teaching Indian Sign Language to step-up work on building human resource trained in sign language.

Ford scion leads global donors’ list for Iskcon temple at Mayapur



Why are the Jindals of JSW group of companies, the Goenkas of Welspun group and Goels of Essel group making a beeline to the world headquarters of the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (Iskcon) at Mayapur in West Bengal, the birthplace of Chaitanya Mahaprabhu?

It is raining US dollars here from all over the globe – with $30 million from Alfred Ford, the great grandson of Henry Ford, another $30 million from international volunteers and more expected in the days and months to come. All this, towards setting up the Sri Chaitanya Cultural World Heritage Centre (SCCWHC). The 700-acre Iskcon temple complex will house a Rs 3,000 crore World Heritage Centre, a new grand temple, the Temple of the Vedic Planetarium (TOVP) and educational institutions that will impart not just science and humanities but spiritual knowledge and values, ethics and morals, too. The grand project is expected to be readied by the year 2022.

The 68-year-old Alfred Ford (aka Ambarish Das), disciple of Iskcon founder AC Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada since 1975, is currently in India, using his good offices to inspire volunteers to give what they can for the Mayapur project. Speaking to TOI, Ford said, “In this day and age, people need inspiration from spiritually advanced people; they cannot become spiritual on their own. I try to serve my spiritual master; don’t we do that in the corporate world as well, serving our bosses?”

Ford recalls being asked why he was willing to spend millions on a temple, why couldn’t he build hospitals instead? His response was, “The best thing you can give someone is spiritual knowledge. Hospitals and food are temporary. But spiritual knowledge transforms your life — then maybe you will have less need for hospitals! Your life changes for the better. That is what the temple is all about. You will discard all your unhealthy habits and with a positive lifestyle, there is healing of mind, body and soul. There will be peace and harmony. Less greed and more selfless service.”

Ford says Mamata Banerjee was the first CM of West Bengal to visit Mayapur and she has promised all help in the making of the Centre.

“The earlier regimes didn’t want to have anything to do with the Temple. Mamata Banerjee was very openminded; she even made dinner offering to the deities. We were facing land issues and she has been helpful there and also in terms of putting in place infrastructure. She says she wants to make Mayapur a leading tourism/pilgrimage destination in the world,” he says.

On February 26, PM Narendra Modi unveiled the world’s largest Gita weighing some 800 kg, at the Iskcon temple situated in East of Kailash, New Delhi. Alfred Ford and other prominent industrialists and devotees participated in the festive occasion.

5% rise in SSC students, exams begin tomorrow

For the Secondary School Certificate (SSC) examination scheduled to begin on Friday, the Mumbai division which consists of Mumbai, Thane, Palghar and Raigad has seen a 5% jump in the registration of candidates. This year, 3.99 lakh students will appear for the exam as against 3.8 lakh students last year.

The spike is a result of an increase in the number of fresh candidates who have registered for the exam this time. While only 3.39 lakh fresh candidates appeared last year, over 3.83 lakh students registered this year. On the other hand, the number of students repeating the exam has seen a dip. Last year, 43,855 candidates registered for the exam while this time only 16,307 students have opted for the exam.

Board officials said while the increase in fresh candidates is a common occurrence, the dip in number of repeater candidates is due to a change in syllabus. “It is a trend we see every time the syllabus changes. A lot of the students might have appeared in the July reexam and not waited for this round of test. This is because coaching classes provide tutoring for the new syllabus and it becomes difficult for the repeater candidates to prepare for the old syllabus,” said Krishnakumar Patil, chairperson of the board’s Mumbai division.

This year, the SSC syllabus was revamped and the board also did away with internal examinations. Paper patterns have changed too and this is worrying teachers and students.

The examination starts on Friday with the first language paper, except English.

DRAIN-WIDENING IN BYCULLA

As part of the BMC’s pre-monsoon preparedness work, workers construct a nearly 1-km-long stormwater drain and widen two existing ones in Byculla (E). While the drain outside Byculla station will be widened before monsoon, work on the other two drains will be completed by next year, say civic officials. The BMC is taking up drain-widening, repair and construction work across the city in phases after the downpour on August 29, 2017, had inundated most parts of Mumbai and exposed the ineffective drainage network
