Good effort trying to be objective in this article. I would like to give a constructive feedback which could help in clearing things up.1. It is mentioned that planting trees in village common lands will have negative affects socially and ecologically. There is no need to even have to agree or disagree with it, because, you also mentioned the fact that Cauvery Calling aims to plant trees only in the private lands of the farmers. So, plantation in the common lands doesn’t come into the picture.2.I don’t see that the ecologists are totally against this project, but just they they have some concerns, mainly in terms of what species of trees will be planted. And because there was no direct communication between the ecologists and Isha Foundation, it was not possible for them to address the concerns. As you seem to have spoken with an Isha spokesperson, if you could connect the concerned parties, it would be great, because I see that the ecologists are genuinely interested in making sure things are done the right way.May we all come together and make things happen.Rare Amazon bush dogs caught on camera in BoliviaCarrot1 Feba very good iniciative to be fallowed by the ranchers all overSponsored 123456789101112131415161718192021222324252627282930313233343536 read more

first_imgOn a roller-coaster of a stretch with three birdies, On a roller-coaster of a stretch with three birdies, three bogeys and three pars in the first nine holes, he birdied 12th from 30-feet, tapped in for another on 15th and holed a 15- footer for birdie on 16th. After bogeys on 11th and 13th, he went into water on 18th and managed to limit the damage to a bogey. Beginning the second nine with a birdie on par-5, which he reached in two, he added another on par-4 second hitting his approach to six feet. Safe pars with two-putts from 40 and 26 feet, he missed a 15-footer for a birdie on fifth. Lahiri missed a seven-footer for par on sixth, but did manage a birdie on par-4 eighth and then reached the green in regulation and two-putted from 35 feet for par on ninth. Piercy, who brought in a new swing coach, Jeff Smith, reaped immediate benefits with a 66 and a share of the lead. That came after eight hours on the range earlier in the week. Piercy, a three-time winner on PGA Tour, made seven birdies in his first 11 holes. The other leader, Fraser, winner of the Maybank Championship in Malaysia two weeks ago, also had a 66 to hold a share of the lead for the first time in 17 career PGA Tour starts. Phil Mickelson, seeking his first win since 2013 Open, shot a five-under 67 in the opening round. Mickelson made seven birdies and finished the day one shot back of leaders Piercy and Fraser. Mickelson has been getting off to good starts, but is yet to convert those into wins. Last weeks winner, Adam Scott, said his goal was to save some energy for the competitive rounds. But he did eagle the par-5 10th enroute to a solid 4-under 68. Danny Willett, Adam Scott, Jason Dufner and Charley Hoffman were all two shots back of Piercy, each carding 68s. Spieth (69) was three off the pace at rthree-under. Playing with Spieth were world no 2 Jason Day (72) and no 3 Rory McIlroy (71). Some of the past winners at Doral struggled a bit. Defending champion Dustin Johnson shot 72, putting him in a tie for 28th and the 2014 winner Patrick Reed went five-over 77. PTI Cor SSC ATadvertisementlast_img read more
