Lingaraj temple

  • This temple recently making news because our prime minister and Nepal president visit it.

  • Lingaraja Temple of Bhubneshwara is one of the prominent temples.

  • It is made in Nagara style and has four halls – for offerings, dance, assembly and sanctuary.

  • The present temple was probably built by the rulers of the Somavamshi dynasty as a Shaiva temple but with the arrival of the Vaishnavite Ganga dynasty, the temple was remodelled and elements of Vaishnavism were inculcated in it.

  • Thus, the temple deity came to be known of Harihara (Hari=Vishnu, Hara=Shiv), a mixed form of Shiva and Vishnu. The consort of Hari Hara is Bhubneshari.

Privatization of water resources

  1. Left view

  • Privatisation of water is unwarranted, unjustified and unnecessary. In pushing for it, we are not really addressing the key issue plaguing the water sector, which is a need for better governance. We need democratic, transparent, accountable and participatory governance in a bottom-up approach, on each aspect of the urban water sector where water privatization is advocated.

  • Problem includes losses, inefficiency, unreliability, corruption, issues of quality, and mismanagement. All of these are symptoms; the root cause is lack of democratic governance.

  • If we look at the experiences anywhere in the world with privatization of water, nowhere has it sustained over a long period of time

  • It is not only to create private system because it is natural resources which can not be priced and and everyone have equal right on it also this resources to be use with sustainable and inclusive manner

  1. Right view

  • Water is an asset of society and cannot be owned by the government, let alone the private sector. The government is the custodian of water on behalf of the people it represents.

  • India’s most important water resource is groundwater. It provides 80% of our rural and urban drinking water, as also industrial water and more than two thirds of water for agriculture, which takes up most of our water resources.

  • Groundwater in India is governed by 19th century British Common Law, which states that whoever owns the land has the right to draw unlimited quantities of water from below that land.

  • It is not adequately recognized that nearly two-thirds of India’s land mass is underlain by hard rock formations. The natural rate of recharge of these rock formations is very low.

  • As the recently drafted National Water Framework Law (NWFL) states, “water is the common heritage of the people of India; an inseparable part of a people’s landscape, society, history and culture; and in many cultures, a sacred substance, being venerated in some as a divinity.
