Capturing calf elephants and selling them has been going on for several years. That is forgotten by the public now. But, the threat to baby jumbos in the wild persists.The most recent incident was reported from Yala National Park. Acting on a tip off, Kataragama police and wildlife officers went to ‘Demala Totupala’ on the 07th that a baby elephant was tethered there. But, they found none. In the meantime, wildlife officers were informed by a resident of Menikpuragama on Kataragama-Situlpawwa road that a calf has come to his home. They collected the animal and took it to Eth Athuru Sevana at Udawalawa.

Affordable housing schemes for the middle and lower income groups are finally on a serious growth curve in 2017, with huge demand in both segments now also being met with increasing supply. It may seem strange that massive demand and massive unsold residential inventory can coexist, but this is in fact the result of pricing mismatch. The maximum demand for housing in India has always been and continues to be in the affordable segment where property prices range from Rs. 15 lakhs to Rs. 50-60 lakhs, while a huge number of ready-to-move projects in cities like Mumbai are priced upwards of Rs. 1 crore.
