Maha village opts for 'evening detox' to curb life's daily digital clutter

A village in Maharashtra's Sangli district is showing the way out of the clutter of electronic gadgets and social media platforms in modern life by getting its residents to go in for a "digital detox" every evening. The idea was mooted by Vijay Mohite, the sarpanch of Mohityanche Vadgaon village, and residents have been participating in this novel exercise enthusiastically. A siren goes off from a local temple at 7 pm, signalling people to put off their mobile phones and other gadgets and switch off their television sets, etc to indulge in reading books, studying and talking with one another, while the second alarm at 8.30 pm signals the end of the detox period. Talking to PTI, the coronavirus-induced lockdown and the subsequent spell of online classes brought mobile phones into the hands of children for long hours even after school ended for the day, while television viewing hours of parents got extended. Also read: Students shoot private video of girl at institute, try to extort money; one held "When physical classes resumed, teachers realised children had become lazy, did not want to read and write and were mostly engrossed in their mobile phones before and after school hours. There weren't separate study rooms in the homes of the villagers. So I put forth the idea of a digital detox," he said. "I had proposed a one-and-a-half hour period at first. Initially, there was hesitancy as people were wondering if it was possible to keep away from mobile and TV screens. On Independence Day, we convened a gram sabha of women and decided to purchase a siren. Then ASHA workers, anganwadi sevikas, gram panchayat employees, retired teachers went home to home to create awareness about digital detox," he added. Mohityanche Vadgaon has been home to freedom fighters, has won awards for cleanliness from the state and central governments and is known for maintaining social harmony, with the focus always being on development works, he said. "At present, between 7 pm and 8.30 pm, people keep their mobile phones aside, switch off television sets and focus on reading, studying, writing and conversations. A ward-wise committee has been set up to monitor if the initiative is being implemented," the sarpanch explained. Emphasising the need for such a move, student Gayatri Nikam said her peers and others were glued to phones and television sets during lockdown, even during power outages, with hardly a glance at course books and other study material. Another person said women in the village's households would be busy watching television serials and there wasn't much parental supervision over children. "Now, from 7 pm to 8.30 pm, children study while parents read and write. There is no disturbance as everyone goes about such productive activities," the villager added. Incidentally, earlier this month, some members of the Jain community in Raisen in Madhya Pradesh had observed a "digital fast" for 24 hours during the 'paryushan parva' by keeping away from their smartphones and other electronic gadgets.  This story has been sourced from a third party syndicated feed, agencies.

Auto driver-cum-chef on cloud nine as he wins Rs 25 crore Onam bumper lottery

An auto-rickshaw driver, who was planning to go to Malaysia to work as a chef, on Sunday won the Rs 25 crore Onam bumper lottery in Kerala, just a day after his application for a loan of Rs 3 lakh was approved. Even more interesting is that Anoop, hailing from Sreevaraham here, bought the winning ticket -- TJ 750605 -- on Saturday. But it was not his first choice, he told media persons who were present at the agency where he had bought the ticket. He did not like the first ticket he chose, so he opted for a different one which turned out to be a winner, he said. Also Read: Maharashtra: Builder booked for cheating homebuyers of Rs 12.9 crore in Nagpur Regarding the loan and his Malaysia trip, an ecstatic Anoop said, "The bank called today regarding the loan and I said I don't need it anymore. I will not be going to Malaysia either." He has been buying lottery tickets for the last 22 years and has won amounts ranging from a few hundreds to a maximum of Rs 5,000 in the past, Anoop said. "I was not expecting to win and therefore, I was not watching the lottery results on TV. However, when I checked my phone, I saw that I had won. I could not believe it and showed it to my wife. She confirmed that it was the winning number," he said. "But I was still tensed, so I called a lady I know who sells lottery tickets and sent her a picture of my ticket. She confirmed that it was the winning number," Anoop said. After taxes are deducted, Anoop would probably take home around Rs 15 crore. On being asked what he intends to do with the windfall, he said his first priority is to build a house for his family and clear the accumulated debts he owes. Besides that, Anoop said he would help out his relatives, do some charity work and start something in the hotel field in Kerala. His wife, who was also present along with him at the agency, told reporters that he has been buying tickets for years. "We have been receiving a lot of calls ever since everyone got to know about the win," she further said. "I will again buy lottery tickets," Anoop said as reporters jostled each other to get a few words from him. Incidentally, last year's Onam bumper lottery, for Rs 12 crore, was also won by an auto-rickshaw driver. Jayapalan P R, an auto-rickshaw driver from Maradu near Kochi, won the lottery last year. This year's second prize of Rs 5 crore will go to the owner of the ticket -- TG 270912. In addition to that, 10 others have won a prize of Rs 1 crore each. The winning number was selected by state Finance Minister K N Balagopal in a lucky draw function held earlier in the day at Gorky Bhavan here.  This story has been sourced from a third party syndicated feed, agencies.

Graduate opts farming in UP village; cashing in on dragon fruit cultivation

A barren land has turned into an enterprise and an inspiration for many farmers with its cash-yielding dragon fruit where an engineering graduate in Uttar Pradesh's Shahjahanpur district has decided to toil a different track. A native of Chilahua village under Allahganj police station, Atul Mishra has done BTech in computer science from Chennai. Talking to PTI, he said he did not go for a high-paying job after completing his studies as he wanted to do something for his fellow villagers and add to the prestige of his district. After surfing the internet, he decided to experiment with the dragon fruit cultivation. Mishra said he brought a few saplings of the dragon fruit, also called Pitahaya, from Sholapur in Maharashtra in 2018 and planted them on a barren land owned by his family. Seeing the success, he has now expanded the fruit farming on five acres of his land. "There is another seven acres of barren land of our family in which dragon fruit would be grown next season," he said. Mishra said now he has employed three men and a woman to help him in cultivation of dragon fruit on a large scale. Earlier, wheat was grown in his family's another piece of land which was yielding return even less than the input cost. He said cow urine and medicine are sprayed to protect the plants from fungus. Also Read: Lakhani duo-led Pneucons aiming to transform Industrial B2B engineering industry The enterprising youth said, in addition to the fruit, he is also selling saplings of the dragon fruit to farmers coming to him from many states, including Bihar, Madhya Pradesh and Haryana. "I also give tips of successfully growing dragon fruit to people who come to me to buy the sapling," he said. Dragon fruit is a tropical fruit native of Mexico and Central America. Its taste is like a combination of a kiwi and a pear. In India, its grown in different parts of Maharashtra. The crop is also grown in Vietnam, Thailand, the Philippines and Indonesia. He said the fruit comes after one year of plantation. Mishra said fruits start coming in his trees from May and continue till December and he sells them at a handsome profit in Delhi's Azadpur mandi. The farmer said he sees a lot of scope of the area being developed as agri tourism and wishes to meet chief minister Yogi Adityanath to submit a proposal to him in this regard. Farmers of the district are praising Mishra for his achievement. Kuldip Singh, a farmer of Rampur Daulatpur, said he would also go for this cash-rich produce. He and some other farmers said that the cultivation of dragon fruit needs more cash but expressed concern over lack of assistance provided by the state government. Chief Development Officer Shyam Bahadur Singh promised assistance. He told PTI that the administration would soon organise a workshop to train farmers in cultivation of dragon fruit. Principal of Government Medical College here Dr Rajesh Kumar said dragon fruit has many health benefits. The produce contains Vitamin C, magnesium in addition to protein and iron, the doctor said, adding that it enhances the immune system.

As Noida's twin towers go down, Twitter explodes with memes

As Supertech's twin towers in Noida were reduced to rubble in a matter of seconds on Sunday, producing an ominous cloud of smoke, Twitter also exploded with amusing comments, hilarious memes and dark humour. While some users tweeted that the "Tower of Corruption" was grounded, a few others said the media's ground coverage of the unprecedented event was "as if ISRO is sending Gaganyaan to moon". The nearly 100-metre-high illegally-built Apex (32 floors) and Ceyane (29 floors) towers -- were razed to the ground using hi-tech engineering techniques. Over 3,700 kg of explosives were used to bring down the structures. People across the country were glued to their TV sets since afternoon to watch the mega demolition event and a little past 2:30 PM, the twin towers literally became history, becoming the tallest structures to be demolished in India. Also Read: IN PHOTOS: Noida twin towers come crashing down after use of 3,700 kg explosives Twitterati responded to the demolition with a range of feelings -- mirth, amusement, humour, sarcasm, while some even asked if it was really necessary to carry out the demolition and could it not have been reused for a humanitarian or other public welfare purposes. "Done and Dusted. #TwintowersDemolition #Noida #NoidaTowerDemolition #NoidaTwinTowers #SupertechTwinTowers #Supertech @indiatvnews," wrote user @ShivamG2711 and shared a clip of visuals of demolition playing on a TV set.Hundreds of cameras were placed at various vantage points in the nearby areas, including those brought by crew members of a large number of media houses. The giant ball of smoke that was raised after the demolition left many people witnessing it on the ground and on TV sets in awe, as the billowing smoke filled the skyline and the screen. On the ground, many people stood at a safe distance to "enjoy the sight of demolition" withe balloon-sellers and street vendors, selling food stuff, adding a layer of festivity to the environment with some even termed it as a "Supertech Sunday". The towers which dominated the Noida skyline, stood taller than Delhi's iconic Qutub Minar (73 m) before being consigned to history. They were under construction since 2009 within the Supertech Emerald Court housing society in Sector 93A of Noida, adjoining the Delhi, and were demolished on the order of the Supreme Court. "Tower of Curruption of #Supertech grounded. #NoidaTowerDemolition #Noida #SupertechTwinTowersDemolition," wrote user @BhupendraNegi08. Another user @A_Parolia tweeted just before the exercise was carried out: "D-Day for these towers who I call Yin & Yang. They are symbol of corruption between the builders & the authorities; but also for the fight, victory & justice for the #homebuyers . May this be a lesson for all, Satyamev Jayate. @jagograhakjago #Demolition #TwinTowers #Supertech". Some Noida residents even live streamed it on social media from the balconies. User @akashrai_3575 wrote: "Twin tower History Now! #TwinTowers," while streaming it on Twitter. But, the mega demolition also spawned a flurry of memes, with many Twitter users using famous dialogues and stills from Bollywood films like 'Gangs of Wasseypur' to add to the 'demolition humour'. "At 2:30 people Le Noida people," wrote a user and shared a clip from a comedy sketch. Another Twitter user shared a meme with a caption "Noida people right now" and a still from movie 'PK', showing the main character played by Aamir Khan, with his face smeared in dust. One meme even talked of what may have been going in the minds of the engineers: "Engineers before explosion of #TwinTowers and a punchline 'Bharosa rakhiye purane khiladi hain'. Using humour-laced tweets, many even poked fun at the massive coverage of the event by the media. "Indian media covering twin tower demolition as if ISRO is sending Gaganyaan to moon.#supertech #TwinTowers #Building #Demolition #news #SupertechTwinTowers@isro, said user @spreemee. "Noida Twin Tower demolition resembling the fall of Indian Media standards in last one decade! #TwinTowers," said another user @VishalVerma_9.With an India vs Pakistan match lined up on Sunday, user @AnasShaikhFzd shared a meme, saying, the excitement level for "#TwinTowers >>>>#TwinTowers" was much higher than for the match. #Supertech twin towers worth around Rs 1000 cr will be demolished tomorrow using another Rs 20 cr. What a waste of resources! Let's not even talk about the environmental hazards! Wish the whole mess was handled in a better manner!#NoidaTowerDemolition," user @_PreScribbles earlier wrote. The demolition of the twin structures generated an estimated 80,000 tonnes of construction and demolition waste and sent huge clouds of dust billowing in the air.  Me after doing nothing on a Sunday but just watching twin towers fall on every other News channel.#TwinTowers #TwintowersDemolition #MEMES #sundayvibes #SupertechTwinTowers pic.twitter.com/P5MfYSy25s — Stracts (@stracts_) August 28, 2022 #TwinTowers #meme #MEMES #Noida #NoidaTowerDemolition #NoidaTwinTowers #SupertechTwinTowers pic.twitter.com/ZhI657NPVw — Shubham Kumar🇮🇳 (@ishubham_kr) August 28, 2022 People in noida right now.#TwinTowers #Noida qutub minar #NoidaTowerDemolition #NoidaTwinTowers #MEMES #TwintowersDemolition #TwinTower #SupertechTwinTowers #TwintowersDemolition pic.twitter.com/JdvJNvLVvs — ReelChaska (@ReelChaska) August 28, 2022 This story has been sourced from a third party syndicated feed, agencies.
