Odisha’s dying largest freshwater lake to get a new lease of life

admin no comments

first_imgOdisha’s largest freshwater lake, Ansupa, which silted up following drastic reduction of water inflow from the Mahanadi, may soon get a new lease of life, thanks to holistic intervention initiated by the State government.Chilika Development Authority, the nodal agency, has taken up restoration measures under funding from National Plan for Conservation of Aquatic Ecosystems.“We are proposing to dredge the mouth of Huluhala Nullah, the lifeline of the lake, connecting Ansupa with Mahanadi and also maintain the gradient of the water channel to ensure flow of Mahanadi water into the lake,” Sushanta Nanda, the CDA’s chief executive, told The Hindu on Saturday.Nullah’s mouth is repeatedly silted up by sand being deposited by the meandering river. Experts believe the hydrological regime of the lake will improve after creation of passage for water through dredging.Ansupa is the wintering ground of 32 species of migratory birds. Its water used to be so clean that it was serving both as a drinking water and irrigation supply source for villagers.The lake being an ox-bow lake, an offshoot of the Mahanadi, was dependent on freshwater supply from the river during the rainy season. The CDA chief said there had been almost no water supply to the lake since 2014 and the lake was choking itself to death. Now, the silted-up area has been encroached upon for paddy cultivation.The water area of Ansupa lake as ascertained from the satellite imageries now varies between 375 acres and 385 acres depending upon the season. Now the waterspread area has reduced to only 500 sq. m and fishery resources are almost non-existent.last_img read more

Serena Williams Debate Is She the Best Female Athlete

admin no comments

Serena Williams is sparking a sports-wide debate over her place in history. Is she the greatest female athlete of all time and if she isn’t what factors are working against her, real or imaginary? Being a female, black and with an attitude? Sports Illustrated writer Jon Wertheim said this,“I consider her achievements, her mental strength, her power, her (terminally underrated) court smarts, her longevity and the overall arc of her career and I reach the conclusion that she is the greatest of all time — a claim I made in 2010 and have gotten grief for ever since. No question in my mind: she is the greatest living female athlete. That she has played (check that: lived) independent of the establishment and conventional thinking makes her all the more admirable. I have no doubt that I will be telling my grandchildren about her.”Jon added, “I’ve long said that one of the real challenges of covering this sport is covering the Williams sisters, Serena in particular. There is so much complexity and contradiction. And, of course, there is the ever-present patina/prism of race. And let’s be clear: anyone who denies the element of race lives in a land of dragons and unicorns and stable ozone layers.”ESPN also took a stab at the debate.
