initial reports indicate that some catastrophic failure either in transmitter or receiving systems could likely cause the snapping of radio links Butif thats all trueheres the question that must then be asked: did ISRO over-enthusiastically overestimate the lifespan of Chandrayaan-1 Just before India two similar missions were launched respectively by Japan and China Japans Kaguya-1 was intentionally crashed on the moons surface on June 102009 after completing one year and eight months of its stay in the close vicinity of the moon Chinas craft Change-1 wound up its operations on March 12009 after a successful stay of one year and five months Interestinglyboth these states during the launch had claimed the designed life of their craft was a single year; they extended it only subsequentlyafter judging its performance in the moons atmosphere Kaguya faced some difficulties while in space but successfully overcame them ISRO could have been a bit more conservative in its statements of the missions life-period ISROs significant roadmap for the future shouldnt be held hostage It should quickly put in place the lessons learnt from this mission; Chandrayaan-2 must not be delayed Such setbacks are hardly uncommon to scientific quests Howeverwhen you are competing with states like Japan and China both commercially and also otherwise keeping the image of your programme intact is also important Any skills at manoeuvring that ISRO possesses cant be limited to its satellites The writer researches non-traditional threats to national security at the Institute for Defence Studies and AnalysesDelhi [email protected] For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by Garima Mishra | Pune | Published: May 8 2016 11:24 am Famous for its temples historical structures and folk art Wai dating back to the Peshwa era has a rich cultural heritage Top News Located on the banks of river Krishna Wai—nearly 80 kms from Pune—is a town whose history dates back to the Peshwa era Famous for its age-old temples historical structures and folk art the town has a rich cultural heritage A short film titled Eka Pakshyachi Goshta (Story of a Bird) showcases the town and gives a message that conservation of Wai is the responsibility of residents too Through fiction the film depicts the transition between modernity and heritage Share This Article Related Article Thestory conveys the dilemma of the youth of today-torn between nostalgia and practical life situations-and thereby touches upon the need of maintaining the rich cultural heritage The film would be premiered at the main theatre of the Film and Television Institute of India on May 8 at 930 am The DVD of the film would be released by actor-director Subodh Bhave on the same day The film has been produced by INTACH Wai-Panchgani convener Vanita Jagganath Jadhav and directed by Bhai Dole Jadhav is an artist by profession who’s been painting for five decades and also runs the J Studio Art Gallery near Balewadi The script has been written by Pravin Joshi and the music is by Narendra Bhide The main characters have been portrayed by Saurabh Gogate and Jyoti Malshe “I thought that more than lecturing people about the importance of heritage conservation or distributing pamphlets about it we could use the medium of films to do the same as it is visually stronger If we will tell them it might sound preachy whereas when the same thing would be conveyed through the protagonist of the film it would have a different impact” Jadhav said “We want people to understand that they should be responsible towards their town and participate in conserving its heritage” Jadhav further said and added that Wai’s beauty is visible in its many ghats wadas and temples Endowed with tradition culture knowledge and arts we see the town struggling to come to terms with modernisation and the malaise it brings along she said Jadhav said that work on the project began five months back The film has been shot entirely in Wai and covers its various festivals folk art religious practices and historical structures “There is a famous Krushnabai Utsav celebrated in Wai that is dedicated to the river Krishna which is worshiped by the residents The place is also rich in Sanskrit literature We have not only covered man-made and natural heritage but also live heritage of the town including famous personalities of the place” Jadhav said adding that the film would be showcased in various schools and public places in the town to attract people’s participation in preservation of its heritage For all the latest Pune News download Indian Express App More Top NewsBy: Express Web Desk | New Delhi | Updated: October 17 2016 6:10 pm A Wildlife SOS team member with the snake found at the construction site (Wildlife SOS) Top News A juvenile rat snake was rescued from the bathroom of the Delhi MetroMukundpur Depot in New Delhi by the Wildlife SOS Rapid Response Unit on Monday The rescued snake was in good health and was soon after put back into its natural habitat Authorities from theDelhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) calledthe Wildlife SOSRapid Response Unit informing them about a snake in the Mukundpur Depot partof the Delhi Metro Phase 3 (Pink Line) This phase is under construction right now Watch what else is making news The snake was found hiding in thedepot bathroom and was spotted by officials on duty who then called the response unit?
