Related News Last week I went to Bihar for the first time in 15 years and returned feeling more despondent about India’s future than I have in a long time Not because there has not been change and development in Bihar but because everywhere I went I saw the failure of the state to address real problems This is true in other states but nowhere as true as in Bihar because everything here is amplified Poverty squalour corruption environmental degradation horrific urbanisation and the angry despair that is the mood of this election So has anything at all changed for the better since I was last here in the reign of Rabri Devi Yes Law and order has improved dramatically The route I chose when I went into rural Bihar last week was one I have taken often on earlier visits This is from Patna to Bodhgaya where not long ago the state’s hold on public safety was so fragile that no sooner did Nitish Kumar become chief minister than Jehanabad’s Central Jail was attacked by Naxalites who freed 200 of their comrades and escaped unharmed Jehanabad today is a hideous chaotic filthy town but safety is no longer a problem In the villages I stopped in even those who said they would vote for Narendra Modi admitted that Nitish deserved credit for restoring law and order Speaking of Modi let me begin by answering the question most frequently asked since the election campaign began: is there a Modi wave Yes but only among Bihar’s Hindu population Muslims told me in town and village that “99 per cent of Muslims will never vote for Modi” And it is voting for Modi that everyone talks about not voting for the BJP Across caste divisions which personally I have never totally believed in Modi has captured the imagination of the Bihari Hindu because they believe he can transform India If you ask why they believe this they tell you that it is because they have seen what he has done in Gujarat Not just on television but because many of them have gone to Gujarat often in search of work Now let me tell you why I left Bihar with such a deep sense that India is never going to make it Never going to catch up with the rest of the world no matter how many shiny new malls rise out of the squalid unsanitary streets of our cities We talk in abstractions about poverty and the ‘aam aadmi’ and Aamir Khan recently did an excellent Satyamev Jayate on urban waste disposal But it is only when you physically see town after town slowly being submerged in rising mountains of garbage does horrible reality hit you And only when you visit a settlement of the poorest of the poor in Bihar that you realise how little things have changed In 1987 on the edge of Daltonganj then still in Bihar I met bonded labourers who had never travelled beyond the confines of their slave master landlord’s estate They lived in mud huts were paid their wages in kind and had no idea what money looked like Last week in the village of Jamalpur 35 km from Patna I saw a settlement of the Musahar community where almost exactly the same conditions exist today There is no road to the settlement so I reached it by walking on a railway track to find small children who looked as if they had never eaten a wholesome meal and adults who had never been to Patna The mud huts in which they lived were so frail they could not possibly survive wind or rain The survival of children in such filth and deprivation was in itself a miracle I travel in rural India every chance I get and nowhere in recent years have I seen such poverty and degradation The upper castes in this village had heard of MNREGA but said there was so much corruption in it that they had been forced to use the Right to Information to prove that dead people were among the beneficiaries They had travelled so often to the chief minister’s janata durbar to complain that his officials were sick of them There was corruption they said in every government programme and this had drawn them for a brief moment to Anna Hazare’s campaign but when they saw Arvind Kejriwal “run away” from governing Delhi they lost hope in this alternative They have now pinned their hopes so totally on Modi that if I were him I would be a very worried man Wherever I went on my travels in Bihar the most dramatic change that I saw was technological Almost everyone has a cellphone and almost everyone watches the news on television And because of this there is now

and coastal locations by filtering out nitrogen bacteria microalgae and other contaminants according to a study (Image Source: The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) Related News Ribbed mussels could help improve water quality in urban and coastal locations by filtering out nitrogen bacteria microalgae and other contaminants according to a study Researchers at The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) in the US began a two-year pilot project in 2011 to improve water quality in the Bronx River Estuary in New York They used a 20 foot by 20 foot raft with mussel growing lines hanging below as their field location in an industrial area near Hunt’s Point in the South Bronx not far from a sewage treatment plant The waters were closed to shellfish harvesting because of bacterial contamination Scientists monitored the condition of the ribbed mussels (Geukensia demissa) and the water quality over time to see how each responded “Ribbed mussels live in estuarine habitats and can filter bacteria microalgae nutrients and contaminants from the water” said Julie Rose a research ecologist at NOAA’s Fisheries Milford Laboratory “Ribbed mussels are not sold commercially so whatever they eat will not be eaten by humans” said Rose co-author of the study published in the journal Environmental Science and Technology Farming and harvesting shellfish to remove nitrogen and other excess nutrients from rivers estuaries and coastal waters is known as nutrient bioextraction or bioharvesting Mussels and other shellfish are filter feeders and as the organisms grow they take up or assimilate nutrients in algae and other microorganisms filtered from the surrounding waters Nitrogen phosphorus and other nutrients occur naturally in the environment and are needed by plants and animals to grow but too much of any of them is harmful Excess amounts from human activities often end up in rivers streams and coastal environments causing algal blooms loss of sea grass and low oxygen levels in the water which can kill large numbers of fish and other organisms Researchers found that the Bronx River mussels were generally healthy and their tissues had high amounts of a local nitrogen isotope indicating that they removed nitrogen from local waters They also had lower amounts of trace metals and organic contaminants than blue mussels (Mytilus edulis) collected from the seafloor nearby An estimated 138 pounds of nitrogen was removed from the river when the animals were harvested The researchers estimate that a fully populated 20 x 20 foot mussel raft similar to the one used in the study would clean an average of three million gallons of water and remove about 350 pounds of particulate matter like dust and soot daily When harvested the animals could be used for fertiliser or as feed for some animals recycling nutrients back into the land “Management programs to reduce the effects of excess nutrients in the water have largely focused on land-based sources such as human and livestock waste agriculture and stormwater runoff” said Gary Wikfors Milford Laboratory Director and co-author of the study “They really have not looked much at recovering the excess in the water itself Nutrient bioextraction using shellfish is becoming more common and this study demonstrated that it could be an additional tool for nitrogen management in the coastal environment” Wikfors said For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App Travis Head smashed a brilliant unbeaten 75 after Mandeep Singh’s 52 as RCB recovered from a top-order
