Far from Maharashtra, Marathi flourishes Down Under

Mumbai, April 30 (UITV/IANS)- A group of migrant Maharashtrians, separated by some 10,000 km of oceans and nations, have joined hands to keep Marathi language, culture and traditions alive in far away Australia.

The brainchild of the Marathi Association of Sydney Incorporated (MASI), the Australian Marathi Vidyalaya (AMV) was founded in 2008 with just a dozen-odd students grappling with the strange-sounding "foreign mother tongue" of their parents.

After the modest beginnings, the AMV has now grown into four flourishing centres for Marathi learning with around 150 students (40 per cent girls) in different age groups in Sydney and Wollongong, AMV President Arun Ghatge told IANS in a series of social media chats.

"These are essentially weekend schools, recognised and funded through grants from the New South Wales Department of Education and Training - - Community Language Programme (NSW-DET), and governed by their rules and regulations in all aspects," Ghatge added.

These have proved to be a boon to the approximately 150,000-strong community of Maharashtrians, mostly first, second or even third generation migrants settled on the East Coast since decades.

Genes that help Tibetans survive at high altitudes

New York, April 29 (UITV/IANS)- Variants of five different genes -- including one originating in the extinct human subspecies Denisovans -- help Tibetans survive the harsh conditions of the high altitudes, says a study.

For the study, published in the journal PLOS Genetics, the researchers sequenced the whole genomes of 27 Tibetans and searched for advantageous genes.

"The comprehensive analysis of...
