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

Blind faith scalds temple priest running over burning coals in India

Mumbai: April 30, 2018




A priest was badly burned when he tripped while running across hot coals during a temple mahotsav (festival) ritual.

Vijay Kumar (35), stumbled and fell in the burning hot coal pit while taking part in the annual mahotsav of Sri Revanasiddeshwara temple located in SRS Betta in Ramanagara district of Karnataka, India, on April 28.

Terrifying footage shows that Kumar started running at speed down the path of fiery coals, which is prepared a day earlier by burning wooden logs.

But, mid-way he loses his footing and falls headlong into the pit. Immediately, two other priests – Rudresh and Manjunath -- waiting at the end of the pit rush in to help him. They jump into the pit, lift Kumar and take him out to safety as the devotees gathered around look aghast.

All three of them are rushed to a nearby government hospital, and from there shifted to St. John’s Medical College Hospital in Bengaluru, the state capital 65 kilometers away.

While Kumar sustained about 60% burns on his legs and hands, Rudresh and Manjunath sustained 15 to 20% leg burns. 

Sri Revanasiddeshwara temple, located atop a hill about 3000 feet above sea level, is an abode of a form of Lord Shiva and is considered sacred by Shaiva followers.

  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!
