Hace 42 años José María Calle arribó a Macondo. En esa época solo había monte, pero con sus manos y el apoyo de su esposa, Silda Lara, montó una finca de 34 hectáreas a la que llamó Bonaire. Como en la novela de Gabriel García Márquez, Cien años de soledad, Macondo fue construido por un grupo de colonos que llegó buscando un hogar. Pero igual que en la historia del nobel colombiano, la violencia destruyó todo y en este Macondo, el real, les arrebató las tierras a los campesinos.

Jammu Srinagar Highway Cleared by Army Engineers and Border Roads

After sustained effort by Army Engineers and Border Roads Organisation (BRO), the road network south of Pir Panjal is restored on all important roads including the Jammu Srinagar National Highway which has been opened today. The major impediment to opening the NH was a massive landslide at Ramsoo near Ramban, where over 300 metres of road had been entirely washed away leaving a sheer cliff of 80 degrees slope. The entire hillside had to be excavated afresh and the effort had to be further intensified due to a repeat landslide on 12 September.
