Lesson from Kerala floods : Human activities, climate change has disastrous effects on environment

  Lesson from Kerala floods : Human activities, climate change has disastrous effects on environment   Sagaya Fernando Mumbai: 19 October 2021   Overexploitation of natural resources and haphazard development by humans has led to climate change, resulting in long-lasting consequences on the environment. This is increasing health hazards and natural disasters, and more, day by day. The torrential flooding being witnessed recently in the state of Kerala in India is a prime example of this, say many experts.   This is not the first time that Kerala, a state of 34 million people, has been devastated by floods. It saw the worst floods in a century in 2018 when severe rains caused flash floods and landslides, killing nearly 500 people and leaving a million homeless. The following year, more than 125 people were killed in flash floods and landslides across the state. More than 50 were killed in August last year after landslides struck the hilly Munnar region.   The latest spell of torrential

Mumbai: February 16, 2018

In a selfless act of bravery, and only concerned about the safety of her toddler brother, an 8-year-old girl at a village in India faced a raging cow which charged at them and protected the toddler from being gored by the cow.

The whole incident has been captured in the CCTV camera installed by her father outside his jewellery shop.

The incident took place on February 13 at Navilagone village in Honnavar taluka of Uttar Kannada district in Karnataka state, India.

The girl, Arati, was playing with her brother Kartik, on the porch of their house. She is seen pushing a baby push car on which Kartik is seated. A cow comes barging on the road, and when it comes close to their house, it turns towards them and barges at the playing children.

As the cow appeared to go for her brother, Arati picked him up and ran towards a corner. The cow followed, its horns coming tantalisingly close to the boy. Kartik seemed to be slipping but Arati held onto him tightly and quickly turned towards the wall, her back to the cow. The angry animal tried to gore her and she screamed.

Hearing her screams her family members rushed to her rescue and drove the cow away.

Her brave and timely act was captured by the CCTV camera attached to her father’s jewellery shop.

The cow, her father Kiran Shet – an insurance adviser and jeweler – opined was apparently drawn by Kartik’s red shirt.

Arati said it was all over in a matter or one or two minutes. “I had no time to think. At that moment, my only aim was to save my brother,” Arati said.

After the video went viral, Arati has become the talk of the town for the bravery she displayed.

  2. To make sure that students know what content will be covered on the exam, they need to obtain and complete a copy of the Study Guide, which becomes available the weekend before the test. At the same approximate time, Mr. Hatfield will make the notes and practice questions available on the class blog. The sooner the students develop the habit of comparing their Composition Book with these materials, the sooner they will improve!

  3. At the time, I was attracted to my future husband for his cool composure under pressure and his decisiveness. He said he was initially attracted to me for my warmth and vulnerability. Describing those same characteristics at our tenth wedding anniversary, I think I called him “cold and controlling” and he called me “neurotic.” At our divorce, we agreed that he had enough of my vulnerability and I’d had enough of his decisiveness to last a lifetime.
