Rail and road link to Rameswaram remained paralysed on Thursday after fishermen removed the rail track for at least one kilometre at Thangachimadam and blocked the road from Pamban.
Three trains to Chennai could not be operated, and a mob set fire to a State Transport Corporation bus and damaged the windscreen of half-a-dozen buses.
The police were caught unawares as a large contingent was on security duty at Pasumpon for the Muthuramalinga Thevar jayanthi.

Thousands of commuters visit the Rajiv Chowk metro station every day with a majority of them in a hurry to catch a train or to be the first to exit.
The large number of footfalls also means that if someone is looking to spread awareness or send out a message, it is the perfect place .
All one needs to do is to make it interesting enough for people to stop and spare a few minutes.
To refresh the public’s memory about Indian Nobel laureates, a Nobel Memorial Wall has been inaugurated at the Rajiv Chowk metro station.
The wall is an initiative of the Embassy of Sweden and the Delhi Metro Rail Corporation

(DMRC).
The exhibition was inaugurated on Sunday morning by Mangu Singh, Managing Director, DMRC, Eivind S. Homme, Ambassador of Norway to India, and Harald Sandberg, Ambassador of Sweden.
The wall exhibits portraits of Rabindranath Tagore, C.V. Raman, Har Gobind Khorana, Mother Teresa, Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar, Amartya Sen, Venkatraman Ramakrishnan, and this year’s Nobel Peace Prize winner Kailash Satyarthi.
While some of the laureates are well-known, the write-up below the portrait throws light on those winners whose life and work is known only to people in their field of work.
Mr. Singh said that the contributions of the Nobel laureates have given India a recognition across the world. “And the exhibition gives an opportunity to the youth to know more about our Nobel laureates while they are on the move.”
Pushpa Mitra, who takes the metro every day, says, “It has become a mechanical process. You just move with the sea of passengers at the station without bothering to observe what is around. Therefore, it came as a pleasant surprise on Sunday as that there was exhibition giving information about Indians who have won the Nobel Prize.”
She says she hardly has time to visit the numerous exhibitions in the city but if there is one on her way to office, she will surely take out five minutes to view a slice of art, culture, history, or a campaign.
The exhibition is part of the Sweden India Nobel Memorial Week 2014 that will be on till November 1.
In its eighth edition, it will be held across 10 cities, and it is a multi-activity annual event organised by the Embassy of Sweden in India in cooperation with leading Swedish companies.
The week is observed in memory of Swedish innovator, entrepreneur, and philanthropist Alfred Nobel.

The Multi-Modal Logistics Park (MMLP), the first phase of which was inaugurated in May this year, has suffered a loss about Rs.10 lakh during the very severe cyclonic storm Hudhud.
The MMLP, the first of its kind in Andhra Pradesh, being established by the Container Corporation of India (CONCOR), is planned to be built on a 100-acre site, opposite the Visakhapatnam International Airport, over a period of two years at an estimated cost of Rs.370 crore.
In the first phase, a 5,075 sq.m. warehouse and an administrative building have been constructed. “The gale has damaged about 1,000 sq. m. of the 5,075 sq.m. warehouse and this is minimal considering the 180-200 km/ph strong winds during the cyclone. As many as 40 of the 88 polycarborate sheets (which allow natural light into the

main shed, and about 1,000 sq.m. of bare galvalume sheets have been damaged and need replacement,” CONCOR General Manager Gouri Shankar told The Hindu on Thursday.
Meanwhile, the CONCOR Container Freight Station (CFS) at the port area has suffered a loss of Rs.37 lakh due to Hudhud. “The roof of the warehouse of our CFS is badly damaged, two HHT towers had collapsed and the boundary wall was damaged at some places,” he said.
Cargo loss “The glass panes and windows and CCTV surveillance cameras at the administrative building of the CFS were damaged. The cargo loss is yet to be assessed by the clients,” Mr. Gouri Shankar said.
The MMLP, which was designed to offer integrated logistical solutions to the trade not only in Andhra Pradesh but also in the neighbouring states of Odisha and Chhattisgarh, would have a private freight terminal, container freight stations and facilities for empty container storage and handling besides container repair facilities. There would be covered and temperature-controlled warehouses with a total space of 4.5 lakh sq. ft.
“A 2-km long railway track would be laid with seven lines to the yards. Approval has been received from the railways for construction of bridges and this project is expected to be completed in two years,” Mr. Gouri Shankar added.

The leader of the Congress in the Lok Sabha M. Mallikarjun Kharge said the BJP has the moral responsibility to stand by its promise on bringing back the black money stashed away in foreign banks to India. “This was the main agenda of the BJP in the Lok Sabha elections and they have the responsibility to stand by it,” he said.
Speaking to presspersons after laying the foundation stone for the construction of a 33/11kV power distribution centre in Yadgir taluk on Thursday, Mr. Kharge urged the centre to publish the names of all the persons hiding their black money in foreign banks instead of blaming the Congress.
To a question, Mr. Kharge said he was confident the Congress would do well in the Jammu and Kashmir, and Jharkhand Assembly elections under

the leadership of Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi. Mr. Kharge urged Railway Minister Sadananda Gowda, to complete the sanctioned rail projects, including the Gulbarga Railway Division, a new line between Wadi Junction in Gulbarga district and Gadag and a rail coach building factory at Yadgir, at the earliest.
Development
Mr. Kharge gave full marks to the State government for implementing pro-people programmes and giving a major thrust to the power and infrastructure sectors. Mr. Kharge said that true to the tradition of the Congress governments, the first priority of this government was also development.
He said after the construction of the power distribution centre, the people living in as many as 20 villages and 30 tandas would be getting not only uninterrupted power supply, but also quality power supply to their houses as well irrigation pumpsets. He complimented district in-charge Minister Baburao Chinchansur for his efforts to get the sanction for the power station.

every day has facilitated collection of seeds from withering plants at the Government Botanical Garden, one of the main tourist attractions at the hill station.Lawn maintenance works have also been initiated, taking advantage of the dry weather.
Farm workers also heaved a sigh of relief as the incessant rains had subjected them to considerable inconvenience when it came to carrying out their operations.
Pointing out that the rainfall experienced along the Nilgiri Mountain Railway (NMR) line between Coonoor and Mettupalayam during the past two months was about two-and-a-half times more than the corresponding period last year, railway sources said that the break would help speed up restoration works at Adderlie where a landslide had occurred two days ago. Traffic on the section, popular with tourists, had been hit for several days.
While hoping that the flow of tourists would increase, representatives of the hospitality and travel sectors said that the authorities should repair damaged roads without delay.

The longstanding dream of Karimnagar people may be closer to reality now. After the Telangana State government went the extra mile in bearing expenses, the railway board reportedly agreed in principle for the new broad gauge railway line from Manoharabad to Kothapalli in Karimnagar.   The railway line was first proposed by Chief Minister KCR during his stint as Karimnagar MP in 2004 to the then UPA Government. After he took over as CM in June, KCR proposed that the TS Government would share one-third cost of construction of the railway project and providing the land free of cost besides paying annuity for the first five years after commissioning of the project. This clinched the deal with the railways. The 146 kilometre railway line from Manoharabad in Medak to Kothapalli in Karimnagar could cost around Rs 1000 Cr and a third of that combined with land acquisition by TS Government...

could cost Telangana around Rs 600 Cr. Once the land acquisition amount is deposited with railways, it will kickstart works on the project, which will connect Karimnagar district headquarters to Hyderabad.

The shifting of the 18th century armoury belonging to Tipu Sultan, which was hindering the progress of track-doubling work between Bangalore and Mysore, will commence in due course.The armoury at the Srirangapatana railway station bisects the alignment of the second track, which cannot be laid until the monument is shifted.Sources in the South Western Railway told The Hindu that when the tender was floated last year inviting bids to translocate the monument, there were no takers.The tenders were floated again in June this year and M/s PSL-Wolfe Pvt. Ltd., which is a firm registered in New Delhi, was awarded the contract.Translocation of the armoury as a single block entails moving it from the floor level from its existing location to a new site 100 metres away.This is done by inserting a suitable supporting system underneath the monument, lifting it using unified hydraulic jacks and transporting it on suitably-designed carriers.Besides, the...

project also envisages placing the heritage structure at the new location in the same orientation as at present and integrating the structure with the new foundation.
Project cost
In the process, no damage should be caused to the historic structure which was used to store arms and ammunitions. Sources said this will be the first time that a monument would be translocated as a single block, though many structures have been dismantled and reassembled again.
The project will cost about Rs. 13.66 crore and has to be completed in 9 months from the date of commencement and during this period, the Pandavapura-Srirangapatana-Naganahalli section will operate as a single-line section.
Once the monument is shifted, the 13-km single-line stretch on this section will be converted into a double-line section.
The Bangalore-Mysore double line work is officially slated to be completed by March 2015, but for the Naganahalli-Pandavpura section till the monument was shifted.
Shifting of the armoury was a major roadblock impeding the pace of the track-doubling work ever since it was noticed in early 2008, and initially there was resistance from the State Archaeological Survey.
However, a Cabinet decision was taken to shift the monument but this had to be cleared by the National Monument Authority of the Archaeological Survey of India which gave its clearance in early 2013.
Archaeological experts had pointed out then that the structure was made of lime mortar and bricks and hence could not be dismantled as in case of structures built using granite or slab stones.
There was considerable delay when the ASI had urged the Railways to realign the track but it was dismissed as impractical as the supporting piers — on which two major bridges across the river Cauvery on either side of Srirangapatana railway station was to be laid — had already been completed.

MARGAO: With its ambitious plans of a double-track corridor yet to make any headway, the Konkan Railway Corporation Limited (KRCL) has now focused on increasing the lines at railway stations and setting up more stations with a view to facilitating introduction of new trains and reducing travel time.
In the Goa stretch of the route, additional lines have been installed at, at least, three railway stations, while three new lines have been added at the Balli station, and four more lines have been laid at Karmali.
Both stations functioned with two lines earlier. Besides, two additional platforms are being constructed at Margao railway station.
Several new railway stations have been constructed along the Konkan Railway route over the last four years, KRCL sources

said.
In the Goa stretch, a new railway station at Loliem, between Asnoti and Canacona stations, has already started functioning.
"Increase in lines at railway stations and addition of more stations will result in reducing time spent during crossing of trains at stations, thereby considerably decreasing travel time," explained Baban Ghatge, senior manager, public relations, KRCL.
While Byndoor (Mookambika road) and Nandikoor near Udupi are the new railway stations along the Karnataka stretch, Madure between Sawantwadi and Pernem, Zorap between Sawantwadi and Kudal, and Vinhere between Karanjadi and Diwankhavati are the new railway stations in Maharashtra.
Sources said that until the double-track corridor becomes a reality, KRCL will have to come up with such innovative ideas to facilitate smooth running of trains.
The project is estimated to cost over 15,000 crore. KRC's chairman and managing director Bhanu Prakash Tayal, addressing a press conference last year, had said there were several options before KRC to raise the required finances for the project, including seeking funds from international lending agencies.
A setback to KRCL's planned expansion of its Margao railway station has been its failure to convince the Goa government to hand over some 3,500sqm of land on the Aquem side.
The land, it is learnt, is already with the government. Official sources said repeated correspondence with the state government has so far failed to evince any positive response.
The expansion plans included developing the other side of the station by adding a couple of platforms, building another foot-over-bridge, and setting up a booking counter, besides providing passenger amenities such as a waiting hall, parking area, etc.
"In the absence of adequate land for the purpose, we have been constrained to limit our expansion plans to constructing two more platforms towards the other side of the station," said Ghatge. The initial plan was to have two covered platforms with two upper floors designed for commercial activities.
