Andhra denies water to Karnataka

Many plants are in equal danger of becoming as extinct as some animals. Does anyone care?

A fluttering butterfly or a dashing cheetah immediately bring vivid images to mind. Does the image of a plant stir us as much? Are we as fascinated watching a flower bloom? Probably not. Maybe that’s why there is such a large focus on endangered animals and birds and not so much on plant species that are dying out. The Western Ghats is a great example of this. The floral diversity in this area is still untapped as revealed by two recent research reports by famous botanists.

Dear Sir,

We are located near Sringeri, Chickmagalore, karnataka and we are going to construct our new house. We need assistance to findout water source to dig a borewell or a traditional well. The next site is having a traditional well and the water is available at 65 feet in peak summer. I am interested to have a well with plenty of water. I heard that there are some methods to findout a correct location through satellite. My question is

1. How to findout a location?

2. After finding out the location which is the best digging method. Traditional or borewell?

We drilled a bore well at Chikmagalur, Karnataka, diameter is 6 inches, total depth is 462 feet, casing is done till 90 feet later we hit with a rock and the bore well was drilled on 13th Feb 2009. According to the driller we got water of around 1 inch at 150 feet, but we further proceeded with drilling hoping for more water. After drilling 200+ feet he said there is one more water point of 0.5 to 1 inch. Then there was a rock we came across and continued drilling hoping for water after finishing the rock.
