Srinagar, Oct 1: As flood water recedes in Kashmir, the affected villagers are cursing the ' wall- like' railway track and the under- construction express highway which cut through Kashmir from north to south, for compounding the devastation caused by the deluge earlier this month. In many villages of south Kashmir, people who helplessly saw the flood flattening their houses and sweeping away paddy fields and orchards said “ these walls” added to the devastation by stopping spread of flood water, leading to inundation of villages which were never touched by flood in the past. “ It ( track) destroyed our village,” said Zohoor Ahmad Dar as he pointed towards the 20 feet high railway track that runs through his native village,... more...
Shoul, in Islamabad ( Anantnag). Shoul along with Sursuna, Shamespora and scores of other villages witnessed massive damage to housing and agriculture sector in the flood that hit south Kashmir from September 3 to 6. The flood has washed away more than 50 houses and caused partial damage to another 65 houses in the village comprising of 200 households. “ Our elders say they have never seen flood entering this village in their life time,” said Dar, a businessman. Mushtaq Ahmad, another villager villager said the track that runs through front side of Shoul first stopped the water and then created its reverse flow. “ This ultimately submerged the village,” he said. The 136- kilometer railway track which starts from Banihal in Kashmir, cuts through vast paddy fields and orchards in thousands of villages in south Kashmir’s Anantnag and Pulwama districts before entering the summer capital Srinagar from where it runs through Budgam to culminate in Baramulla. Far off from Shoul, in Haasanpora Tawala and Hussanpora Bagh villages of Anatnang, people say there was no history of floods. “ Water from Vaishaw River got trapped due to the railway track and it flattened 200 houses,” said Khalid Hussain, a local. But in villages like Sangam, Tulkhon and Halmul in Bijbehara town of Anantnag, it was a track of different kind that added to the devasatation: the “ Express Highway.” People said the under- construction highway that runs through endless villages to connect Qazigund with Baramulla “ acted like a wall” to stop free flow of water. “ The flood had never touched our village,” said 76- year- old Ghulam Ismail Dar of Barsu. See In flood- hit The highway, which is 10 to 15 feet high, is being built by the National Highway Authority of India. It starts in upper parts of Anantnag and would bypass Srinagar to connect to Baramulla via Budgam.An official in the NHAI said construction of the highway was started only after authorities studied floods in Kashmir for the past 100 years.“The priority was to build the track at a height which would not be touched by flood,” he said.While the deluge devastated over 400 villages in south Kashmir, many of them severely and washing away hundreds of houses, both highway and railway track have largely remained untouched with only minor damage reported in some areas.In Gulzarpora village of Pulwama district, village head Ali Muhammad Sheri, said during the construction of the track some years ago, the entire village had protested, demanding adequate water-subways built under it.“Nobody heard our pleas that time. The results are evident now,” said Sheri.Shahid Malik, a student of management, said both highway and railway track halted smooth flow of flood water which led to submerging of villages.“The tracks should have been constructed on fly-over pattern to allow water to move freely,” said Malik. “At present there are not enough water subways under the highway and railway and it is a serious problem.”A senior official in the Flood Control department said when the two tracks were approved for construction, it proposed their construction on “bridge pattern” in flood-prone areas in view of the flood history of Kashmir.“But there was pressure from both the central and state governments that led to shelving of the proposal,” said the official, who wished not to be named.Commissioner/Secretary Flood Control Department, Pawan Kotwal, admitted that both railway track and highway acted like barriers to prevent the spread of water.On September 4, Kotwal said, when the water level increased drastically in river Jhelum, it breached the Kandizal embankment on Srinagar-Jammu highway.“We thought since the breach has taken place, water will be absorbed by basin from Kandizal to Lasjan,” he told a press conference here on Monday. “But the track and the highway prevented spread of water which led to increase in the level of flood water.”He said a team of experts from the National Disaster Response Force (NDRF) and government of India would study how railway track and highway compounded the flood. “And if they come to any conclusion, then a rethinking is needed on it,” Kotwal said.Chief Engineer, Flood Control Department Javaid Jaffer said the department has started assessing “impact” of the highway and railway track as “contributing factors to devastation.” However, he said, the government had already written to the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) to carry out mapping of flood zones. The track that runs through front side of Shoul first stopped the water and then created its reverse flow. This ultimately submerged the village Mushtaq Ahmad Shoul Water from Vaishaw River got trapped due to the railway track and it flattened 200 houses Khalid Hussain Haasanpora Tawala During the construction of the track some years ago, the entire village had protested, demanding adequate water- subways built under it.

PULWAMA, Sept 21: The railway track of the Baramulla-Banihal train in Jammu and Kashmir has been a boon for some areas while bane for many others in the flood-ravaged Valley. The track built over an around 15-20 feet high embankment at some places has led to blocking of the passage of water thereby flooding some areas while at the same time saving many others from destruction. “Railway... more...
is good for the people, but the bund (embankment) built for the track blocked the outflow of water from our village,” Ghulam Nabi Hajam, a resident of Gulzarpora village in south Kashmir’s Pulwama district said. He said the water level in their village would not have reached as high as 8 to 10 feet, had there been no embankment. “When the waters flooded our village, there was no escape route for it in the absence of any flood channel.The bund stopped it. Had there been no bund, the water would have, no doubt, flown into other villages but could not have caused much damage here,” Hajam said. The residents said the engineers, who built the track, should have left gaps at regular intervals in the bund to allow the passage of waters. “There are small gaps at few places, but those were not enough,” Hajam said. A youth, Parvez Ahmad, expressed the same apprehension about the under-construction four-lane road on the Srinagar-Jammu National Highway. “The road is fine, but there should be gaps in its bund at every half-a-kilometre for allowing water to pass, otherwise we are doomed,” Ahmad said. The residents of Gulzarpora might be cursing the railway track, but for the people in the adjacent villages, it acted truly as a blessing when the floods hit these areas in south Kashmir on September 5. “Our village was saved because of the railway track.Its bund is raised high and flood water was blocked on the other side,” Mohammad Maqbool, a resident of Renzipora said. He said even though the people in his village were saddened at the destruction caused by the flood in other villages, they were happy to see their area safe. “We are thankful to God and then the government for the bund that saved us, but at the same time, we feel for our brothers in the nearby villages,” Maqbool said. Similar is the story in Srinagar, the summer capital of the state, where two posh areas narrate the same tale of the bund acting as a saviour for one and a cause of destruction for the other. The railway track passes through Humhama, on the airport road, and while one side of the bund was flooded, the other side was not, a resident of the area, Fayaz Ahmad Mir said. “The bund acted as a barrier and stopped water from flooding some areas, but it submerged many others.So for some, it was a blessing while for others a curse,” Mir said.

आज सकाळपासून मनमाड रेल्वेस्थानकावरील फलाट क्रमांक 4 वर ढोल-ताशांचा गजर सुरु होता. कारण दररोज हजारो प्रवाशांना त्यांच्या इच्छित स्थळी पोहचवणाऱ्या मनमाड-कुर्ला गोदावरी एक्स्प्रेसमध्येही सालाबादप्रमाणे गणपतीची प्रतिष्ठापना करण्यात आली.
सकाळी साडेआठ वाजता गोदावरी एक्स्प्रेस मनमाडहून मुंबईकडे रवाना होते. नाशिक-मुंबई असा रोजचा प्रवास करणाऱ्या चाकरमान्यांना घेऊन ती देशाच्या आर्थिक राजधानीत येते. यासोबतच विद्यार्थी आणि सर्व सामान्य प्रवाशांनांही घेऊन येते.
अठरा वर्षांपूर्वी सुरू झालेल्या मनमाडकरांच्या या हक्काच्या गाडीत गणरायाची स्थापना होऊ लागली. सर्वच जातीधर्माच्या लोकांनी एकत्रित येऊन या गणेशाची स्थापना सुरू केली.
गणेशोत्सवाच्या काळात मासिक पासधारकांच्या बोगीत गणपतीची प्रतिष्ठापना केली जाते. या रेल्वेतील गणेशाच्या दर्शनासाठी मुंबईपर्यंतच्या प्रत्येक स्थानकावर दर्शनासाठी प्रवाशांची मोठी गर्दी होते.
यावेळी सर्व प्रवासीही गणेशाकडे एकच प्रार्थना करतात की, माझा प्रवास सुखाचा होऊ दे,आणि मनमाडचे वागदर्डी धरण भरु दे.
या गोदावरी एक्स्प्रेसमध्ये संपूर्ण बोगीला आर्कषक पद्धतीने सजावण्यात येते. या सजावटीने संपूर्ण बोगीत होणारी श्रींची स्थापना येणाऱ्या प्रत्येकाला मनोमन सुखावते आणि प्रत्येक प्रवासी गणेशापुढे नतमस्तक होतो.
रोज नाशिक-मुंबई असा प्रवास करणाऱ्या चाकरमान्यांबरोबरच आपल्या लाडक्या बाप्पाचा दहा दिवसाचा प्रवास अविघ्नपणे सुरु राहतो.
Union Urban Development Minister Venkaiah Naidu on Friday denied allegations that the Centre had shown a preference in the clearance of the Metro Rail in Nagpur over Pune, which is a stronghold of the Congress and Nationalist Congress Party (NCP). “There is no politics behind the clearances to the projects. We had asked the State government for clarifications on the proposal for the Pune Metro but did not receive a response. We sent them several reminders through May to July. Finally we got an email from them only two days ago,” Mr. Naidu said, laying the blame at the door of the Congress-NCP Government. Mr.... more...
Naidu was responding to Chief Minister Prithviraj Chavan’s allegations of bias. Both the Nagpur and Pune Metro projects were approved by the Centre in February. However, while Prime Minister Narendra Modi laid the foundation stone for the Nagpur Metro on Thursday, clearances for the Pune Metro are still pending. “There should be no discrimination between a leader’s constituency and the rest of the State,” Mr. Chavan had said on Wednesday in an obvious reference to Union Minister Nitin Gadkari who is an MP from Nagpur. Naidu to attend Mumbai Metro bhoomipoojan Mr. Naidu announced that he would attend the bhoomipoojan of the third phase of the Mumbai Metro on August 26, despite Mr. Chavan’s decision to boycott the Nagpur function. “I have accepted the invitation of the Chief Minister. They did not invite me when the first phase of the Mumbai Metro was launched but I did not hold it against them,” he said. The third phase of the Mumbai Metro will run from Colaba through Bandra to Seepz. Jeering at CM not planned Meanwhile, in a reference to the disruption of Mr. Chavan’s speech in Solapur when he shared the stage with the Prime Minister, Mr. Naidu said, “The hooting of the crowd was not right but it was not done in an organised manner. It was the reaction of the crowd.” He said Mr. Chavan should “show maturity” and not boycott events with Mr. Modi.
