Topic: Telangana Issue

Telangana is a region in the present state of Andhra Pradesh, India and formerly was part of Hyderabad state which was ruled by Nizam. Andhra Pradesh State has three main cultural regions of which Telengana is a one part and others includes Coastal Andhra region on the east and Rayalaseema region on the south. When the move to merge Telangana with Andhra was mooted in 1953 the people of Telangana had several concerns. The region had a less-developed economy than Andhra, but with a larger revenue base (mostly because it taxed rather than prohibited alcoholic beverages), which people of Telangana feared might be diverted for use in Andhra. They feared that planned irrigation projects on the Krishna and Godavari rivers would not benefit Telangana proportionately, even though people of Telangana controlled the headwaters of the rivers. It was feared that the people of Andhra, who had access to higher standards of education under the British rule, would have an unfair advantage in seeking government and educational jobs. The Congress party's central leadership decided to merge Telangana and Andhra despite opposition in Telangana. An agreement was reached between Telangana leaders and Andhra leaders on 20 February 1956 to merge Telangana and Andhra with promises to safeguard Telangana's interests.

...General Awareness Topics: 2013 Telangana Why Telangana 1. There are 10 districts in Telangana, 9 in Andhra and 4 in Rayalaseema. Out of these Districts, 7 are in Telangana, 3 are in Andhra and 1 in Rayalaseema are considered as severely backward districts which means 70% of districts in Telangana are backward while in Andhra it is 35% and in Rayalaseema it is 25%. Apart from these there are some areas in all parts of the state which are also backward. 2. 45% of the state income comes from Telangana region. When it comes to utilization of funds, the share of Telangana is only 28%. 3. Two major rivers Krishna and Tungabhadra enter the state of AP in the district of Mahaboobnagar (the biggest district in Telangana) but the district always remains the worst draught hit areas along with Anantapur because there is no project and process with which the water can be utilized. The plan for utilization has been pending for decades. 4. In Telangana regions, only few areas cultivate one crop a year and very rarely two crops a year while most of the land doesn't even cultivate single crop. In both the Godavari districts, Krishna and Guntur district, two crops a year is common and there are times where even 3 crops a year are cultivated. The only reason is WATER. 5. Not even a single project was completed in Telangana in the last 5 years while several projects were completed in Andhra and Rayalaseema.

...were emerging in various parts of India- Telangana in Andhra Pradesh, Vidharbha in Maharashtra, Jharkhand in Bihar etc. Demand for separate state became vocal late in 1990’s in 468 X INDIAN JOURNAL OF APPLIED RESEARCH ReseaRch PaPeR view of the decision taken by the union government to create three states i.e. Jharkhand, Uttaranchal and Chhattisgarh. To begin with in 1997 the Department of Political Science of Karnataka University organized a symposium on North Karnatak Disparity. And subsequently the congress party opposition leader Shri. H. K. Patil and a host of others took the lead and it may be recalled that Shri. H.K. Patil brought out a book Chaluva Kannada Nadu and had analyzed the discrepancies as far as development works were concerned. These led to the further debates and later some organizations like Uttar Karnataka Horata Vedike were created to fight the regional imbalance. Noted Journalist and literary figure Dr.Patil Puttappa became its president. Demonstrations over neglect of North Karnataka were held. A white paper on development of North Karnataka was demanded. The apathy of the government in fulfilling the basic needs of the neglected region led to a growing sense of intolerance. Hyderabad Karnataka consisted of three districts Gulburga, Raichur and Bidar which were under Nizam’s rule for more than 174 years (1794-1948).The Nizam’s state consisted of three Telagu speaking linguistic territories i.e. Telangana region, Maratha wada and Hyderabad......

India's Wine Business

...India’s wine business ------------------------------------------------- Wine regions[edit] Vineyards in India range from the more temperate climate of the northwestern state of Punjab down to the southern state of Tamil Nadu. Some of India's larger wine producing areas are located in Maharashtra, Karnataka near Bangalore and Telangana nearHyderabad. Within the Maharashtra region, vineyards are found on the Deccan Plateau and around Baramati, Nashik, Pune, Sangliand Solapur. The high heat and humidity of the far eastern half of the country limits viticultural activity.[2] While wine consumption in most of the countries is increasing at a rate of 4-5% a year, in India the wine consumption is increasing at rates of 25-30% a year. A study of the department of chemical engineering at the University of Vigo (Spain) suggests that "companies must invest in new technologies to reduce the impact of agro-industrial waste into the environment and establish new processes that provide additional sources of revenue" Of wine in the cellar are different wastes: liquid (effluent), organic (marc, lees, stalks) solids, and other solids (packaging waste, household type, etc.). Of these, those used are of the second type.The average composition of the grapes that go into a winery is 83% pulp and the remaining 17% composed of grape skins, pips and scrapes, are discarded. Treatments to reduce pollution by the generation...
