    Union Government launches which scheme for Regional Air Connectivity - UDAN Scheme

    Among Important National Current Affairs, The Union Government has finally launched the regional air connectivity scheme UDAN (Ude Desh ka Aam naagrik) which aims to get more people to fly in the smaller towns. 

    However, the scheme was launched by the Union Civil Aviation Minister Ashok Gajapathi Raju in New Delhi. Next year, by January 2017 it will be rolled out and will be in operation for a period of about 10 years.

    The Adivasi Will Not Dance authored by - Hansda Sowvendra Shekhar

    Among Important National Current Affairs, the book titled The Adivasi Will Not Dance, which is penned by Hansda Sowvendra Shekhar, was in news in the second week of October 2016.

    Also, the book was recently shortlisted for The Hindu Prize 2016.

    However, the characters of the book are set in the fecund, mineral-rich hinterland and the ever-expanding, squalid towns of Jharkhand.

    Please Note: The book, a collection of stories, offers the glimpse in the lives of troupe-master Mangal Murmu, who refuses to perform for the President of India and is beaten down; Suren and Gita, a love-blind couple, who wait with quiet desperation outside a neonatal ward; Panmuni and Biram Soren, who move to Vadodara in the autumn of their lives, only to find that they must stop eating meat to be accepted as citizens, and several other characters.

    ICGS Aryaman and Atulya Commissioned into - Indian Coast Guard

    Among Important National Current Affairs, The Indian Coast Guard Ships (ICGSs) named as ‘Aryaman’ and ‘Atulya’ were commissioned into Indian Coast Guard in Kochi, Kerala. 

    However, these ships are the eighteenth and nineteenth in the series of twenty Fast Patrol Vessels (FPVs) designed and built by Cochin Shipyard Limited.

    Smooth-coated otter sighted for first time in - Krishna Sanctuary 

    For the very first time, Smooth-coated otter was sighted in the mangrove forest near the Krishna wildlife sanctuary (KWS) in Krishna district, Andhra Pradesh. 

    However in all, seven others were sighted in the mangrove forests and brackish water channels of Eelachetladibba and Lankevennedibba and other areas outside the KWS. 

    Also the presence of the otter is a key indicator for rise of the mangrove cover in the KWS.
