Yatri Nivas to come up on 6.84 acres at Srirangam

The Yatri Nivas proposed to be built at Srirangam for the benefit of devotees visiting the temple town would come up at a 6.84 acre poromboke land currently vested with the Tiruchi Corporation.

The Yatri Nivas, the foundation for which was laid by Chief Minister Jayalalithaa during her thanksgiving visit to the Srirangam constituency, was originally planned to be built at an 8.60 acre site owned by the Department of Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments at Panchakarai on the banks of the Coleroon River.

However, it has been stated that the building could be constructed only 100 metres away from the river bank as per the rules of the Union Environment Ministry. Hence an alternative site had to be identified by the district administration.

The HR&CE Department had requested the Corporation to transfer the land vested with it on the southern side of the Panchakarai Road. The HR&CE Department in return would hand over the 8.60 acre site to the Corporation.

Based on the request, the Tiruchi Corporation Council, at an urgent meeting chaired by Mayor A.Jaya on Wednesday, adopted a resolution agreeing to the swapping of the lands between the two agencies.

As per an official resolution tabled at the meeting, the land vested with the Corporation was currently given on lease to a contractor for cultivating vegetables from waste water. The lease is to be cancelled, paving the way for the transfer of the land.

Responding to a question from Mustafa of the Marumalarch Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam and M.Anbazhagam of the Dravida Munnetra Kazhagam, Commissioner K.Veera Raghava Rao said that as per the lease agreement the Corporation had the right to take over the land whenever required. The lessee has also agreed to hand over the land, he said.

The Yatri Nivas, sanctioned at a cost of Rs.36.40 crore, would be a modern lodging house with dormitories and family rooms to accommodate about 1000 devotees at a time. It would benefit devotees visiting the Srirangam Ranganathaswamy Temple, the Thiruvanaikovil Jambukeswarar Akilandeswari Temple and the Samayapuram Mariamman Temple.

Srirangam government hospital recommended for accreditation

Image

The Srirangam Government Hospital here has joined the list of 12 government hospitals in the State recommended for accreditation by National Accreditation Board for Hospitals and Healthcare providers (NABH). As a preparatory initiative, an eight member medical team visited the hospital to identify and suggest necessary improvements to meet standards prescribed by NABH, a constituent body of Quality Council of India.

The team headed by Dr. P. Ilango, expert advisor, accreditation, Tamil Nadu Health Systems Project (TNHSP), visited the Srirangam Hospital and later the District Headquarters Hospital at Manapparai, one of the hospitals already identified by the TNHSP. The team that assessed the present healthcare scenario at both hospitals identified existing defects and put forth recommendations.

Ten teams comprising hospital staff have been constituted in each of the hospitals to execute recommendations and upgrade quality of patient care, T.Mohanasundaram, joint director, Public Health, told The Hindu. Recommendations for the Srirangam Hospital included improving biomedical waste disposal, posting signboards and stepping up quality of equipment. The improvements would be carried out within six months, Dr.Mohanasundaram said. The medical team constituted members from the Namakkal District Headquarters hospital, the first government hospital in the state to be accredited by NABH. Other members in the team included Selvakumar, district co-ordinator, Namakkal, a nursing superintendent, lab technician, radiographer and medical records chief. The Sholingur taluk hospital is the only other government hospital in Tamil Nadu to obtain the accreditation. The accreditation process would include self-assessment and preliminary inspection exercises before assessment by the NABH team. On fulfilling 100 stringent clinical and governance parameters set by the NABH, a quality care certificate with 3 year validity period would be issued.

Special arrangement for ‘Swargavasal' darshan ahead of Vaikunta Ekadasi

Image

Authorities of the Srirangam Sri Ranganathaswamy temple have made special arrangement to ease the congestion for ‘Swargavasal' darshan during Vaikunta Ekadasi.

A view of Lord Ranganathar coming out of the ‘Swargavasal' after being taken out from the sanctum sanctorum through the ‘prakaram' inside the temple, forms the significance of the festival every year.

As the ‘darshan' takes place in the early hours of the day, a large number of devotees gather at the ‘prakarams' inside the temple in advance and wait for at least five hours to witness the holy ritual. “Women and aged persons find it difficult to wait for such a long time inside the temple. We will now set up a stone gallery in the open space between the Sri Dhanvanthiri shrine and the ‘Swargavasal' gate,” says S. Jayaraman, joint commissioner of the temple.

He said that a brick structure hindered the view of the ‘Swargavasal' darshan.

“We demolished the brick structure and are constructing the gallery,” he added.

Preliminary work on setting up the stone structure commenced recently.

He said that about 500 to 600 persons could be accommodated at the new venue.

“So far, only the lens men only could view the holy ‘Swargavasal' darshan. With the construction of this arena, aged persons and women with infants would benefit in a big way, he said. The architecture of the stone steps would not look new but would be on the lines of the ancient lines, he said.

Students, volunteers take up drive to rid Srirangam of plastic waste

Image

College students, volunteers, environmental activists and Corporation sanitary workers came together to take up a cleaning drive aimed at making wards 1 to 6 in Srirangam and Thiruvanaikovil areas plastic-litter free under a ‘Masilla Tiruchi' (Clean Tiruchi) campaign organised under the auspices by the Environmental Protection Forum here on Friday.

The campaign was taken up by the Forum in association with Srimad Andavan Arts and Science College and the Tiruchi Corporation to create a plastic-free model zone in the city.

About 600 persons, including students from Srimad Andavan Arts and Science College, St.Joseph's College, Urumu Dhanalakshmi College, and the Department of Women's Studies of the Bharathidasan University, volunteers and Corporation sanitary workers, fanned out to various areas in the island town wedged between the Cauvery and Coleroon rivers.

Armed with gloves and bags, the volunteers split into different groups removed plastic wastes at around 70 places across the six wards from 8.30 a.m. to noon. The volunteers also distributed pamphlets against the use of non degradable plastics door-to-door during the campaign. About 20 bags of plastic wastes were collected and handed over to the Corporation at the end of the campaign, according to the organisers.

At a brief ceremony, the campaign was inaugurated by Fr.L.Anthuvan, director, Kalai Kaviri College of Fine Arts, at Mambazhasalai.

Later in the day, certificates were distributed to the volunteers who participated in the campaign at a World Ozone Day celebration organised at the Srimad Andavan Arts and Science College as part of the campaign.

M.Ravichandran, Head, Department of Environment, Bharathidasan University, distributed the certificates in the presence of S.Martin, advocate and M.Pitchaimani, vice principal, Srimad Andavan College.

A.Gregory, organiser and K.Chandrasekaran, coordinator, Environmental Protection Forum, were also present on the occasion.

Modern auditorium to come up

: A state-of-art auditorium would come up near the Kattazhagiasingar Temple in Srirangam as part of the development initiatives ordered by Chief Minister Jayalalithaa who represents the constituency.

The auditorium, with a seating capacity of 1,000, would fulfil one of the felt needs of the residents of the town. Residents have long been demanding a proper auditorium in the heritage town.

According to sources, the auditorium would come up in a piece of land belonging to the Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments Department. The land, to an extent of about 36,000 square feet, was situated close of the Kattazhagiasingar Temple. The land and the auditorium would continue to remain with the HR&CE Department.

The Tourism Department would fund the project, estimated to cost about Rs.5 crore.

Design finalised

The Department of Arts and Culture has already finalised the design for the auditorium roping in the services of reputed architects.

The auditorium would be built by the Public Works Department and handed over to the HR&CE Department.

The Srirangam Ranganathaswamy Temple attracts tourists and pilgrims right through the year and there is no proper auditorium for holding cultural events. Currently, even the cultural festival organised by the Department of Arts and Culture, in connection with the annual Vaikunda Ekadasi festival, is conducted along the roadside with temporary stages being erected every year. The fully air-conditioned auditorium with modern amenities would be used for hosting various cultural events organised in the town, the sources said.
