"West Bengal capital of Kolkata to visit an historic cemetery in the city. Now located in the heart of downtown on a busy thoroughfare, this burial ground has occupied the site for over 250 years, and is protected by the archeological survey of India. To tell us the story of how this window to the past came to be, and how modern coal cutter interacts with what remains, Sally Howard brings us this tool story. Behind hybrid walls at the intersection of central Kolkata's Mother Teresa and lower circular roads, where rickshaw horns bleat and the chatter of a fast modernising city rises into the humid subtropical skies of the gangetic plain, 1600 souls are laid to rest. The incumbents of the ancient South Park street cemetery, which was opened in 1767, and used until the 1830s a British. The hopefuls and lumens who arrived here on the fast merchant ships of the East India Company. Their final resting places, tombs, muscular mausoleums, and prior senators are a melting pot of east meets west design influencers. From richly ornamented European gothic to indo saracenic styles, ornamented by a chaos of obelisks, cairns, urns, and sarcophagi. The tombs are small houses, said rajar kipling of the cemetery in the city of dreadful night, an 1880s short story. It was as though we walked down the streets of the town, so taller than so closely do they stand, a town shriveled by fire and scarred by frost and siege. Men must have been afraid of their friends rising up before the due time, so afraid that they waited them with such cruel mounds of masonry. The cemetery no longer welcomed the dead, yet it attracts hordes of the living. Office working locals come here to eat their lunchtime tiffin. Tourists arrive, looking for a moment's peace from the maddening crowds. Bougainvillea and fragrant Indian almonds bloom here and the centuries of moss cloaking these tombs offers a pleasingly cooling effect in the monsoon heat. They come too for the inscriptions which tell of deaths by hazards such as childbirth, tropical diseases and melancholia. One Thomas doily died with some novelty from an inordinate use of the hooker pipe and pool rose Alma met her fate after eating too many pineapples. In the modern Indian imagination, however, South Park street cemetery is best known as the setting for spooky photo shoots in films. Locals stand by a belief that during monsoon, the grave of one captain E S dennison and family, a small pyramid shaped structure in the heart of the 8 acre compound, oozes a red substance resembles blood. This led to its nickname that bleeding too, a legend given weight by the fact that the 6 denizens died within a week of each other, of unknown causes in 1806. Such superstitions have led to the cemeteries appearance in recent decades in photo shoots for Bengali pop bands in Indian high fashion. It has a starring role in the hit movie or a standing fab de her. A 2010 Bengali thriller which charts detective for looters canny deductions after he arrives in South Park street cemetery in a violent storm, and discovers that one of the cemeteries graves, that of a shadowy figure named Thomas Godwin has been freshly dug up. In the end, the scariest thing about South Park street cemetery is not the ghoulish legends, local guide ammo tells me. But how brief these colonial lives were. Many of South Park street's incumbents, lacking immunity to tropical disease, died as children, or in their 20s. After all, if those mosquitos don't get you, the pineapples will. You've been listening to tall stories, a monocle 24 production. Today's episode was written by Sally Howard and produced an edited by David Stevens. I remember to tune in on Thursday for the full 30 minute edition of the urbanist. I'm ajit tuck, goodbye, and thank you for listening.

Hackers Breach 150,000 Surveillance Cameras: But How?

"Radio. All right, so we were all over this story yesterday when it broke. It was about the hacker group that says it wanted to show how much surveillance is out there in our world and how easy it was to breach it. Great reporting and itwas a Bloomberg Exclusive. It was William Certain is the one who brought it to all of us. And to all of you, he cybersecurity Porter at Bloomberg News joining us on the phone from New York City, William I'm still reeling from reading this story because it's terrifying and in so many different ways. What did this group of hackers do? Well, thanks for having me so they owned as hackers say they have this company in the worst possible way. They got into an account at this. This Security camera company Club Kolkata that allows them to look through the camera of all of its customers, and not only that they could look at the cameras live on day could also look at the archives of the videos that those customers had stored. From those cameras and in some cases of cameras were using facial recognition technology, which the hackers could also interact with. How is that so easy? Well, uh, you know, it's obviously there's multiple investigations going on at the company right now. T answer that question. But, you know, they got in through exposed credentials. So you know a user name and password for so called super admin account. I've been left out there publicly on the Internet. Um you know, it's sloppy. It's bad security practice on DATs how it happened. What do we know about about the group that that did this? Who is Tilly Cotman. Well. Kelly Cotman is a 21 year old with citizen who could've packed with an anti capitalist anti surveillance when he won world view. Um and you know they seek to kind of China light on on what they see is a abuse of technology. And then capitalism gone too far. I mean, that's what this is about, right? Shedding a light to say. Hey, folks, I don't know if you're aware of it. You've all gotten so used to having cameras all around you like we all have a camera on our phone. But did you realize what that really means? Right, and another aspect of this that really isn't being discussed. Much is like these hackers could have done something much worse. They could have sat in this system for a long time and lost it all this confidential video. They could have, you know, utilized the cameras to launch other hats in the future. They could have tried to hack the networks of Ricardo's, uh, customers. But they didn't do that. They came to a journalist and they blew the whistle. Silver Kata, the company at the center of this It's a startup that was founded back in 2016 itself, Security cameras that customers can access through the Web. Obviously, they've raised $80 million in jazz of January. 2020 values the company at $1.6 billion What does this mean for the company? And what have you heard from the company Since you published this Well, obviously terrible for the company's reputation, right? They have so many high profile customers, not only high profile customers, a Tesla and cloud Fair right be exposing this put off the schools, hospitals, jails. Um, you know, it's terrible for the reputation and you know their companies that tries to sell their security is one of their teachers. And you know what I'm hearing from the company is not much there. Um um Doing an investigation, and they contacted law enforcement. But you haven't heard too much more. They restrict the hackers no longer have access

Young social entrepreneur in India turns wedding waste into meals for the needy

"I'm an academy with you and us on a mission to feed hungry. Citizens young social entrepreneur in India, stack Ling, the food waste challenge there by rescuing food leftover from weddings parties in supermarkets, Padmanabahn Gopalan takes advantage of geolocation technology by allowing restaurants in individuals to log into his no waste food app where they can find the nearest community that can take their food instead of throwing it in the bin according to you, an estimates saving twenty five percent of the food currently wasted globally. Each year would be enough to feed. Eight hundred seventy million hungry people in so far, Mr. Gopalan, provided meals for more than nine hundred thousand you was in New York this week, taking part in the UN science, technology and innovation forum and spoke to you uses session gold. Why initiative, no food waste is an initiative that collects all this hopeless Ford from weddings, restaurants, supermarkets, and hall, sort of he even said this happening across the cities where there is a large. Twenty of untouched good quality surplus for being thrown into bins. So we have dollar technology and the application that helps to donate that to the nearest community need. So we have geo tagged all the hunger sports in the city like the people in need lake slums government hospital shelter homes, orphanages roadside homeless people temporary shelters all the stuff they are geo tagged and map. So if a if a person or restaurant or an industry logs into mobile application, they'll be able to see the nearest community, which they can share that, for instance, throwing it into the bins. We also operate a fleet of vehicles and volunteers, which helps us to bridge this gap of collecting and distributing the food. So it started in a place called mature in Tamil. Nado, nowadays working in fifteen cities, across south, India. Have you invested any foods or resources in making sure that people are aware of your initiative, so that they are able to reach out to you? That is a very good amount of awareness being picking up among the people. So. So people used to like they don't have any access to those datas of where they can go and share the food, even if they live in the city, they don't know where are people in need. So everybody speak about hunger, but they literally don't know where where this pockets are. So, that's when we wanted to identify them, and Geotech them. So there anybody like nowadays. Everybody's using technology on the other side like the people who while Guinness evens and everybody they're logging, and they just find the they see the data Hillary and say, anxious that this many sports are there in the city, which we live for more than thirty s so we work with all the, the particularly the food safety and channels authority of India, and they are organizing Multistakeholder meeting with the holiday caterers food industries on regular level, where we give to them. And also, we reach out on social media to all the wedding couples so they are aware of this service being offered, so they can close this on the weddings of throwing away. Lot of our students to dental school children as well was in a specific reason you gave up for this innovative idea creative solution to the food waste problem. So it's an interesting interesting journey, so I, I was doing my uniting graduation in an almond college so I happen to learn with lot of people from different backgrounds. So mostly from tribal, rural parts and few of us from cities. So everyone had a different value of food. So as working part time as well when I was doing my undergraduate. So then I was doing a part time classes to lot of school children. That's when I found out that this generation, particularly missed the value of the food is equal to some money, it's not an economic. It is beyond that, too. I thought instead of teaching science max, we should I teach value food to kids. So then whichever class, I go, I took a weighing scale with me. I used to wait how much food the kids throw in the schools and during the next day or something. Family. They'll be reading it in the, the assembly that yesterday, all of us western this many cages afoot today. We should try to reduce that. So then Ford standard kid came to me, and ask me a question. See there are a lot of food being thrown away last week, we had a housewarming function where we ordered for one fifty people, but only some one hundred people turned up, so we're can do that, for that provoke need to start something like this. So how many Xs meals have you been able to do need so far, the number of people who have been able to help, tow it as our around eight nine thousand meals that you have delivered through directly by us, and the, the eight hundred thousand but it's, it's more than eight hundred thousand meals that we have directly collected and delivered through frito vehicles, so we have on one hundred volunteers who collect meals, and deliver hand. There are also a lot of individual donations happening. Now, you are here in New York. Tell us a little bit about your experience participating. In the science technology innovation forum coming back to the United Nations actionable Ottoman goals. I strongly believe that technology and scale ability, will be the only solution to kill some local solutions. So this forum is a great platform for local restaurant loyal workers. Lakers for me. This is the first time in United Nations and frustration Moore. So every time I read about United Nations when Leanne my books, so here we are able to make the people from different cultures different countries coming together for a common cause. And we feel the energy of lake mindedness, among all the stakeholders here. So when I, I was given a chance here to person may Navision, so there are a lot of people who were able to connect to the problem of food waste and who are already seeking solutions for it. So we are all connected in this platform now. So it is definitely making this local solution to become global one. This platform is one that will make that you talked about skill ability. What are your plans for the future? So right now, the, the Soviet of hunger, mapping, we are done in fourteen cities, where people are using it to shut the food. So we are working on in to metro big cities, rest of all titrate cities. So we according to the data, what we have there is more amount of wood being thrown away stood only in Tyrone cities then tied into so we were concentrating more on Thailand cities in the coming years. So we'll be killing a initiatives to much more Tyron cities like the Mumbai, Kolkata, Bangalore Hyderabad and other places, and also create a more sustainable model current way of working now, we are shifting it into more sustainable model so that it will really become replicable and Francis solution for everyone to
