Chennai: As water level in Mettur Stanley Reservoir dipped to an alarmingly low 2.8tm­cft, the Tamil Nadu government on Tuesday moved the Supreme Court seeking a direction to Karnataka to immediately release 10tmcft to it for June.
 
The state also prayed for a direction to the Centre to constitute the Cauvery Management Board (CMB) and Cauvery Water Regu­lation Committee (CWRC) as per the February 5, 2007 final order of the Cauvery Tribunal.
 
A drought-hit Tamil Nadu also sought the release of 53.18tmcft shortfall (pro-rata sharing) at Mettur dam for 2012-13 wat­er year before Karna­taka starts utilizing water in the current irrigation year. The state has recei­ved only 1.7tmcft at Billi­guntulu as on June 24, whi­ch is not on account of release from Ka­rnataka rese­rvoirs, Ta­m­il Nadu petition said. 
 
If Karnataka were permitted to perpetuate such deliberation action, it would not merely cause irreparable loss and prejudice to TN inhabitants but would be a direct affront to the February 19, 2013, order of the SC, the state contended seeking a direction to take physical control of Karnataka reservoirs and vest it in a neutral authority to ensure water release as per final order.
 
Tamil Nadu sought CMB and CWRC constitution on the premise that the protem supervisory committee constituted pursuant to May 10 order of SC “has not been able to implement the final order in letter and spirit and it has not achieved the purpose for which it was intended, thereby perpetuating the sufferings of farmer and inhabitants of the state, which is being deprived of the water during the crucial June-September months and consequently seriously affected the agricultural economy of the state.”

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
