Dal Lake's water sports are back!

Srinagar's Dal Lake once again has regained its charm of water sports activities after months of halt.

The lockdown shut all the sports activities in the Valley and bound people to stay in their houses for months to safeguard themselves from COVID-19.

Now, authorities have allowed several sports activities in the union territory as things are getting normal day by day.

The water sports athletes took sigh of relief and participated in the event with full enthusiasm.

Water sports activities include swimming, canoeing and kayaking etc.

Jammu and Kashmir is emerging as a talent hub of the country as youths here are excelling in different fields and making the union territory and country proud.

Youths here are engaging themselves with sports and cultural activities and saying no to drugs and anti-social activities.

Administration here is also encouraging the youths and providing them all the facilities so that they can excel in their respective fields.

Dal Lake is a world famous water body which attracts a large number of tourists every year from across the world.

Such water sports activities will also help attract adventure enthusiasts towards the Valley.

JandK govt starts beautification of Shalimar-Dal Lake water channel

The Jammu and Kashmir administration has taken the responsibility to beautify the Shalimar-Dal Lake water channel which was in pathetic condition from past few years. The poor condition arose as all the waste materials including deadly polythene were thrown into the channel. Lakes and Waterways Development Authority (LAWDA) is on a full-fledged mission to renovate and beautify one of the oldest water channels which connects Shalimar garden to Dal Lake. Shalimar channel was once used to flush out the overflowing water from the garden and also a shortcut route for Mughal rulers to enter the world famous Dal Lake by Shikara. The renovation comes as a big relief for the local business as it is likely to fuel tourism and business opportunities.

Podcast in Kashmir nurtures young talent through creativity

A Kashmir-based podcast offers a platform to youngsters to connect with the locals of the Valley. The podcast 'Mashq Talks' empowers young talent to harness creativity. The 'Mashq Talks' podcast series is an episodic series of digital audio or video files. Its aim is to connect young Kashmiris to the world through digital media. Founder Umar Nisar said, "I tried to offer Kashmir, its own 'Ted Talks' and I started an initiative and named it 'Mashq Talks'. It is as same as 'Ted Talks'. We started a podcast through which we targeted 100 Kashmiri influencers and featured them. Kashmir has abundance of talent but at the same time, they lack platform." A writer Sulah Shabir said, "Their intention is to bring youth from the Valley in front. If I talk about myself, I have been writing for last 6 years but I am in limelight for last 6 months. This happened because we don't know how to reach to the audience through our talent. We have lots of talent but no exposure and this is our biggest drawback as our social and political situation are not well. This podcast is a big initiative."

‘Shoddily done’: CSIR chief slams Chinese study on Covid’s Indian origin claims

Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR) Director-General Dr Shekhar C Mande slammed a recent Chinese research report which claimed that Covid-19 had origins in India or Bangladesh. "There is a paper which is under consideration of publication in Lancet. It has not been peer-reviewed yet, so we can't say what the peer review system will do to it. But it claims that the origin of the SARS-CoV2 virus is in India, and having read the paper myself fully and thoroughly understood what it says, the study is very shoddily done. The analysis was very badly done, and I don't think it will stand the scrutiny of a peer review system," said Mande. His comments come after Chinese researchers in a study proposed that the 1st transmission of SARS-CoV-2 may have taken place in India or Bangladesh. Watch the full video for more.
