In a much needed move, Nagpur Municipal Corporation is taking steps to move cattle from the city to Nandgram, a cattle shed project at Wathoda near the Bhandewadi dumping yard. The project, which was planned many years ago could not be implemented for various reasons.

In 2003, the state government had declared Nagpur city as a prohibited area for keeping cattle under the Maharashtra Keeping and Movement of Cattle in Urban Areas Act, 1976. Even Maharashtra Pollution Control Board (MPCB) had issued guidelines for prevention of pollution caused by cattle sheds, however, they were never implemented.

The menace of stray cattle disrupting traffic and causing accidents on the busy city streets has long been complained about but the authorities have done precious little to mitigate the problem.

According to a report in a leading daily, Nandgram cattle shed will house 3,000 cattle heads owned by milkmen currently operating within Nagpur city limits. The project was proposed in 2013, when senior BJP corporator Dayashankar Tiwari was standing committee chairman.

NMC will only develop the place with basic amenities like road, electric connections, overhead water tanks with four bore wells, hospital, milk chilling unit, three open grounds, separate drainage system to carry dung and waste water etc. whereas the actual construction of sheds will be done by the beneficiaries, who will be provided the land on lease, the report states. The Nandgram project will now cost Rs. 25 crore as against the earlier estimated cost of Rs. 39.12 crore.

And that’s how a film is made – Kantara shows the way! | Movie review

Social media is buzzing with one word today and that word is Kantara! Yes, another Kannada film after KGF that has caught the people’s fancy and how. In fact, this one goes a notch higher than KGF – because the film has been released only in Kannada with English subtitles and yet – the movie is capturing the hearts of people across India and the world.

From California, London and Berlin to cities across India, high praise is pouring in for the Rishab Shetty starrer and the actor-director’s Twitter feed is testimony to this. Ordinary cine-goers are putting screenshots of housefull bookings, sharing videos of people clapping and whistling in theatres and then profusely thanking the star for making this film.

So, what’s this film about? Kantara (which means forest in Sanskrit) stands out because it has powerful storytelling at its core. It is rooted in local folklore, has the right amount of action and adventure and comes with a social message too. Man versus nature, native customs and local politics, which spans three timelines and a climax that’s to die for, is what the film’s about. Add to this some superlative performances by the cast, a stellar background score by B Ajaneesh Loknath and mind-blowing cinematography by Arvind S Kashyap that serenades Karnataka’s rustic locales and you have what can be called the perfect recipe for a blockbuster film. Telling you more will just be a spoiler! So, what are you waiting for? Go watch!
