An analysis of Census 2011 data confirms many known facts--the urban beats the rural when it comes to treated tap water supply, access to water testing labs and much more.

Sixty eight percent of India's population lives in rural areas but when it comes to facilities -- including the availability of safe drinking water -- cities and towns corner most of them. Investments to rural India increased from Rs 31,356 crore (2002-07) to Rs 89,150 crore (2007-12) but this hasn't helped bridge the gap.

Attappadi hills cut down to build resorts

Hi,

What are the points to be borne in mind while deciding between an openwell and a borewell for a 7.5 acre farm in Dhoni district, Palakkad , Kerala. This farm has a small stream near by. But in summer the stream goes dry. There is no power supply there and hence we plan to use an oil pump .

If anyone can suggest the difference between the two wells it will be a great help. Also any suggestons on deciding a contractor to dig a well to ensure they dig at a place where water is available?

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.
