Policies, People & Climate: Hindustan Times


In News: The Roxburgh Project envisages restoring and sustainably rehabilitating an ensemble of heritage buildings in the 273-acre gardens and utilise the historic gardens as a lab for climate crisis awareness and environmental education.

India has a rich heritage that is a storehouse of archaeological assets and mind-blowing monuments. They represent a unique legacy of civilization and therefore the conservation of built heritage is generally perceived to be in the long-term interest of society.

But the majority of India’s architectural heritage and sites remain unidentified and largely unprotected, and even those that are protected are facing challenges related to climate change and unsustainable tourism practices. Therefore, the issues related to Indian Heritage must be carefully identified and solved in a comprehensive manner.

 

Heritage

The primary custodian of ‘Monuments and Sites’ in the country, i.e. Archeological Survey of India (ASI) and their counterparts protect them.

Role of India's Rich Heritage in Embracing its Cultural Identity

  • Embracing Diversity: India heritage is itself a museum of different types, communities, customs, traditions, religions, cultures, beliefs, languages, castes and social systems.
  • Tolerating Nature: Indian society gave every culture the opportunity of prospering that is reflected in its diverse heritage. It does not try to suppress diversity in favour of uniformity.
  • Storytellers of Indian History: Heritage is a legacy of physical artefacts and intangible attributes through the generations that are inherited, preserved, and passed on. Heritage has been woven into the fabric of Indian society with spiritual, religious, social, and political significance.

 

Challenges Associated with Heritage Conservation

 

 

Way Forward

  • Chanage required in Conservation Policy: In light of the changing scenarios with the advancement in technology, ASI needs to update its Excavation Policy. Using new technology such as Photogrammetry & 3D Laser Scanning, LiDAR and satellite remote sensing surveys should be used for documentation, surveys, excavation and conservation.
  • Smart Heritage programme: It is necessary to consider the Heritage Impact Assessment for all large infrastructure projects. The Heritage Identification and Conservation Projects need to be adjoined to the city master plans and integrate with the Smart City Initiative.
  • Increasing Engagement through innovation: The use of monuments that do not attract a large number of visitors and not have cultural/religious sensitivity can serve as venues for cultural and wedding programmes that can fulfil twin objectives: The promotion of the associated intangible heritage and Increasing visitor numbers to such sites.
  • Corporate Responsibility: Companies should be encouraged to take on restoration and preservation of monuments as part of their Corporate Social Responsibility(CSR) obligations.
    • Climate Action and Heritage Conservation: Heritage sites can serve as opportunities for climate communication and education, and research on historic sites and practices to understand past responses to changing climate conditions can help adaptation and mitigation planners develop strategies that integrate natural science and cultural heritage. For example, coastal and river communities such as the island of Majuli in India have been living with and adapting to changing water levels for centuries.

Multi-State Co-op Act Amendment: Lok Sabha Bill


The Central Government recently introduced the Multi-State Cooperative Societies (Amendment) Bill, 2022 in Lok Sabha.

About the News

  • Multi-state Cooperatives are entities spread across more than one state. Under the Multi State Cooperative Societies (MSCS) Act, 2002, the administrative and financial control of these societies is with the central registrar, while no state government official can wield any control on them.
  • The MSCS Act was passed to govern such cooperatives whose members and areas of operation are spread across more than one state. At present, India has more than 1,500 multi-State cooperative

What are the objectives of the introducing this amendment?

  • The Bill seeks to strengthen governance, reform the electoral process, improve the monitoring mechanism, and ensure ease of doing business in multi-State cooperative societies.
  • It aims to improve the composition of boards and ensure financial discipline, besides enabling the raising of funds in the multi-State cooperative societies.

What are the key provisions of the amendment bill?

  1. Establishment of cooperative election authority: The Bill seeks to establish a “cooperative election authority” to bring “electoral reforms” in the cooperative sector.
  2. Appointment of Cooperative information officer: The bill proposes to make provisions for the “appointment of cooperative information officer” to provide information on affairs and management of the multi-state co-op society concerned to members of such society.
  3. Amalgamation of co-operative societies: The bill provides for the amalgamation and division of multi-state co-operative societies. This can be done by passing a resolution at a general assembly. The Bill allows co-operative societies (registered under state laws) to merge into an existing multi-state co-operative society.
  4. Establishment of a Fund & concurrent audit: The Bill seeks to insert a new Section related to the “establishment of the Cooperative Rehabilitation, Reconstruction and Development Fund” for revival of sick multi-state cooperative societies. It also proposes to insert Section relating to “concurrent audit” for such multi-state societies with an annual turnover or deposit of more than the amount as determined by the Centre.
  5. Redressal of complaints: It proposes to appoint one or more Co-operative Ombudsman with territorial jurisdiction to inquire into members’ complaints. The ombudsman will complete the process of inquiry and adjudicate within a period of three months from the date of receiving the complaint and may issue necessary directions to the society during the course of inquiry.
  6. Increase in Penalties: The government has also proposed to amend the existing Act to increase monetary penalties on multi-state co-op societies for violating provisions of the law to a maximum Rs 1 lakh

 

 

What are the concerns associated with the proposed bill?

  1. Since cooperatives are a state subject, the introduction of the clause concerning the merger through the Bill, encroaches on the state’s right and is against India’s federal structure.
  2. It is also being claimed that this is beyond the legislative competence of the Union as State cooperative societies are within the exclusive jurisdiction of States.
  3. No provision of the Constitution makes way for merging a cooperative society which is incorporated under State law with a Multi-State Cooperative Society.
  4. The bill may lead to the concentration of power of the Central government, which may impact the autonomy and functioning of the multi-State cooperative societies and create the potential for misuse.
  5. No reference to standing committees was made despite demands from opposition parties.

‘Clean Ganga’ changes course to conservation, tourism, livelihood


There has been a shift in the objectives of union government’s flagship Namami Gange programme. The program conceived to improve the sanitation levels in the Ganga River is now geared towards conservation, tourism and providing economic livelihoods.

 

 

About the News:

  • In a meeting headed by Union Jal Sahkti Minister, to coordinate activities of the Namami Gange project, decisions were focused on developing a “comprehensive plan” for developing tourism circuits along the Ganga in line with “Arth Ganga,” organic farming and cultural activities.
  • ‘Artha Ganga’ concept, first introduced by the Prime Minister in 2019, implies a sustainable development model with a focus on economic activities related to Ganga. Under Arth Ganga, the government is working on six verticals namely:
    1. Zero Budget Natural Farming,
    2. Monetization and Reuse of Sludge & Wastewater,
    3. Livelihood Generation Opportunities,
    4. Increase public participation
    5. Promote the cultural heritage and tourism of Ganga,
    6. Empowering local administration for improved water governance.

What are the steps taken to promote tourism, conservation and livelihood generation along Ganga?

  • Tourism circuits are being created and the Ministry is planning exhibitions and fairs in 75 towns along the main stem of the river.
  • Agriculture Ministry is taking steps to build organic farming and natural farming corridors. Several workshops and visits have been organized for farmers who were being “nudged and sensitized” to shift to ‘natural farming.’
  • Urban affairs ministry is focused on mapping drains and solid waste management.
  • Environment ministry is scaling up afforestation and conservation efforts to protect the Gangetic river dolphin.
  • Power Ministry is working to reuse treated wastewater of thermal power
  • Rural Development Ministry is looking to rejuvenate small rivers and protect traditional water bodies.
  • States are focusing on expeditiously completing projects and every Ganga district is expected to develop a scientific plan and health card for at least 10 wetlands and adopt policies for reuse of treated water and other byproducts.

Existing laws on religious conversions


Petitions filled in the Supreme court against religious conversions

About the News:

  • The Supreme Court bench led by Justice M.R. Shah has recently heard a plea seeking a special law against forced conversions.
  • There have been allegations that “mass conversions” of socially and economically underprivileged people are being carried out in major states of India in an organised manner.
  • The court has observed that acts of charity or good work to help a community or the poor should not cloak an intention to religiously convert them as payback.
  • The court has also sought clarification from the centre on steps done to curb religious conversions by means of force, allurement or fraud.
  • Forced conversions often affects the security of the nation and freedom of religion and conscience of citizens.
  • Previously, more than ten States have enacted laws prohibiting religious conversions affected through force, allurement, fraud, or marriage.

Religious conversions: 

  • About: Religion conversion is a practice where an Individual renounces his original religion and adapts to different religions and ideals.
  • Legal status Religious conversion is a basic right in India and conversion of religion due to self-belief, divorce, marriage is completely legal in India.
  • Need: No person shall directly or indirectly convert from one religion to another by misrepresentation, force, undue influence, coercion, allurement or by other fraudulent means or by marriage.
  • Constitution:
  • Article 15: As per constitution, an individual has the freedom to choose a particular religion.
  • Article 25(1): All persons are equally entitled to the freedom of conscience and the right to profess, practise and propagate religion freely.
  • Supreme Court verdicts:
  • Arun Ghosh vs. State of West Bengal (1950): Any attempt to raise communal passions through forcible conversions would be considered a breach of public order, affecting the community at large and it was within the power of States to enact local Freedom of Religion laws.
  • Stainislaus vs. State of Madhya Pradesh (1960): Article 25 does not grant the right to convert other persons to one’s own religion but to transmit or spread one’s religion by an exposition of its tenets.
  • Puttaswamy judgement (2018): Every person was the final judge of their own choice of religion, and religious faith was a part of the fundamental right to privacy.
  • Union government: Right to religion did not include the right to convert other people to a particular religion, especially through fraud, deception, coercion, allurement and other means.
  • States:
  • Before independence: Several Princely States had enacted acts such as the Raigarh State Conversion Act of 1936, the Patna Freedom of Religion Act of 1942 and the Udaipur State Anti-Conversion Act of 1946, mainly against conversion to Christianity.
  • Post-independence: Odisha became the first State to enact a law in 1967 restricting religious conversions, which provides that no person shall directly or indirectly convert any person from one religious faith to another by force, inducement or any fraudulent means.

 

Major issues:

  • While right to profess and practise their religion should be allowed, it should not become tool to political warfare.
  • Fundamental right to propagate does not necessarily mean seeking converts by force of arms and can probably work to remove the “misconceptions” in the minds of the people about other co-existing religions in this land of different faiths.
  • Several states enacted or revised their anti-conversion laws, restricting religious conversions on the additional ground of marriage, supposedly to curb what has been described as “love jihad”.

NASA’s Artemis 1 mission - Edukemy Current Affairs


Why in news?

  • Recently, NASA’s Orion capsule splashed down in the Pacific Ocean marking the end of the inaugural Artemis 1 lunar mission exactly 50 years after Apollo’s final moon landing.

 

About Orion Spacecraft

  • It is developed by NASA.
  • Orion served as the exploration vehicle that carried the crew to space, provided emergency abort capability, sustained the crew during the space travel, and managed safe re-entry from deep space return velocities.
  • In its 35-day mission, the Orion passed about 127 km above the moon in a fly-by. Orion entered Earth’s atmosphere at a speed of over 40,000 kilometres per hour – more than 30 times the speed of sound – for a “fiery, 20-minute plunge to the ocean.”

 

How is Artemis 1 different from NASA’s earlier lunar missions?

  • The Moon landings of the 1960s and 1970s were guided by Cold War geo-political considerations
  • The desire of the United States to go one up on the Soviet Union —by launching the first satellite, Sputnik, and the first spacecraft, Luna 2, to crash on to the lunar surface, and sending the first man to space, cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin.

 

About Artemis 2 and 3

  • Artemis 2 is planned for 2024 and it will take a crew toward the Moon but still without landing on it. NASA is expected to name the astronauts selected for this trip soon.
  • Artemis 3, scheduled for 2025, will see a spacecraft land for the first time on the south pole of the Moon, which features water in the form of ice.

Air-breathing Engine - Edukemy Current Affairs


Context: Recently, ISRO successfully conducted the hot test of Scramjet Engine, a type of Air Breathing Engine.

 

 

  • Air Breathing Engines is an engine in which fuel is burnt taking in air from the surrounding area.
  • It is an internal combustion engine that directly heats the air by burning fuel, with the resultant hot gases used for propulsion via a propulsive nozzle. This is why they are lighter than rockets.
  • A continuous stream of air flows through them. The air is compressed, mixed with fuel, ignited and expelled as the exhaust gas.
  • Thrust produced by a typical air-breathing engine is about eight times greater than its weight.
  • The thrust results from the expulsion of the working gases from the exhaust nozzle.
  • They can be used instead of the expensive first stage of the chemical rocket launcher.
  • Types:
  1. Ramjet
  2. Scramjet
  3. Dual Mode Ramjet (DMRJ)
  • India is the fourth country to demonstrate the flight testing of a Scramjet Engine.
