Eviction drive in Srirangam ahead of Vaikunda Ekadasi

Image

The Tiruchi Corporation on Tuesday launched an encroachment eviction drive in Srirangam ahead of the Vaikunda Ekadasi festival at the Sri Ranganathaswamy Temple, scheduled to commence on December 25.

A team of Corporation officials cleared the encroachments, mostly temporary structures put up by shopkeepers, primarily along the Amma Mandapam Road and around the Srirangam Bus Stand.

Corporation workers also dismantled encroachments at Thiruvadi Street and Thiruvalluvar Street during the day long operation carried out with police security.

Corporation officials said the drive was taken up to ensure free movement of pilgrims visiting the temple town during the festival. The drive was also intended to ease the traffic congestion, they said.

The operation trigged a brief protest from local shopkeepers, protesting the Corporation move, as they squatted on the road near the Old Bus Stand.

The traders were irked over the removal of the temporary pandals and similar projections put up by them. Senior Corporation and police officers intervened and pacified the traders.

No vehicles movement under Srirangam temple tower: Govt

CHENNAI: In the wake of the recent Kalahasthi temple gopuram collapse, the Tamil Nadu government has drawn up a series of safety measures to protect and preserve the Srirangam temple after a crack was detected in its 72-metre tall tower. The governemnt directed the Sri Ranganathaswamy temple administration in Srirangam to undertake measures to safeguard the 13-tier temple tower. The safety measures include banning the use of fireworks in the temple vicinity and preventing vehicles from passing under the tower. A meeting convened by chief secretary K S Sripathi was held in the city on Friday.

Following reports of cracks in the tower constructed in 1987, a team of experts comprising officials from the Hindu Religious and Charitable Endowments, stapathis and a professor from the Madras IIT inspected the tower on June 21 and certified that the tower was safe and there was no need for the public to worry about its strength. The team was asked to suggest measures to safeguard the tower.

The meeting analysed the report submitted by the team and recommended that the temple administration immediately stop vehicles from passing under the tower. No fireworks would be permitted in the temple vicinity, a press release said. The meeting of officials and experts also decided that the small crack that had been detected on the temple tower would be mended using cement, lime, chebulic (kadukkai) and jaggery.The Srirangam municipality would also take steps to ban new constructions that use pile foundations and drilling borewells close to the temple. It would also ensure that all encroachments around the temple are removed. The meeting was attended by HR&CE secretary S Muthusamy, commissioner P R Shampath, state archaeology director T S Sridhar. It was decided that the authorities concerned would implement the suggestions in 15 days. Decisions were also taken to involve experts from the Madras and Kanpur IITs to ascertain the strength of the tower foundation using non-penetration radar.

Butterfly conservatory in Srirangam soon

Image

A tropical butterfly conservatory is proposed to be set up by the Forest Department in Srirangam here to foster conservation of butterfly species and educate public about its significant role in maintaining ecological equilibrium.

A comprehensive proposal for its establishment at the Upper Anaicut reserve forest area in Srirangam has already been forwarded to the government. The proposal was under active consideration and orders were expected soon.

The proposed conservatory will come up on 25 hectares within three years at a cost of Rs. 8.6 crore. It will encompass among others a climate-controlled indoor conservatory; outdoor conservatory; Lepidopteran breeding lab; host plant farm; interpretation facilities; nursery and shade net house and tourist facilities.

In addition to employing department staff for its maintenance, a couple of Entomologists and a Botanist would be engaged for providing technical support.

About 10 species of butterfly which are not listed under the Wild Life Protection Act will be bred in captivity and exhibited in the indoor conservatory, which will have temperature and humidity regulation mechanism to ensure suitable microclimate inside.

The roofs and sides of the indoor conservatory would be covered by poly carbonate sheets. A cascade, stream and a pond will be created inside to help in regulation of humidity and enhance the beauty of the indoor conservatory to make it appear as a natural habitat.

Suitable nectar and roosting plants apart from perennial plants would be planted inside the indoor conservatory in which 100 to 150 butterflies of suitable species would be released on a daily basis. The outdoor conservatory will have host / nectar plants raised in rectangular fashion inside.

Exhibits

Exhibits of butterflies, larvae and pupa would be displayed inside the outdoor conservatory which will have facilities for watering the host/ nectar plants. Walkways would be provided in indoor and outdoor conservatories for the visitors to go around them.

One portion of the breeding lab would be utilised as operation and larva storage area.

The host plant farm in five acres will supply larva feeding materials on a continuous basis to the indoor conservatory and supplement the host plant requirement of the outdoor conservatory. Seating benches, toilets, fountains and a watch tower would be established as part of tourist facilities inside.

Nakshatra vanam

A ‘Nakshatra vanam' will also form part of the butterfly conservatory. Twenty seven number of trees/ plants species corresponding to 27 number of birth stars and 12 trees / plants species corresponding to 12 ‘rasis' would be planted inside the ‘Nakshatra vanam'.

The butterfly conservatory will be the first of its kind in Tamil Nadu with both indoor and outdoor conservatories, the District Forest Officer I. Anwardeen told The Hindu . The design for the project has been finalised and the department's Principal Secretary C.V. Shankar inspected the spot recently.

The conservatory would enable students and research scholars to have practical knowledge of butterfly species and in carrying out research, Mr. Anwardeen said. The project is the outcome of the announcement made in the Legislative Assembly a few months ago by the Forest Minister.

Mr. Anwardeen said the outdoor conservatory would be ready by 2012 and the indoor conservatory in 2013.
