Drinking water is supplied once in two days to the locality, mostly around 6.30 am. There is only one tap at 9th Cross where residents come to collect drinking water. Ravichandra, an assistant in a private company, had gone outside around 6.15 am. "I spotted him having a coffee around 6.15 am. He rushed back saying that he had to collect drinking water," said Nithin, a local resident.

It was more or less a similar fate with Kalavathi. She had just come out and was standing near Ravichandra, holding the pot waiting for her turn when the building collapsed. The tragedy left local residents totally shocked, while many of them didn't go to work. "We're completely ...

Death knell for citizen-led lake governance 3.8.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
Bengaluru has become a bit notorious globally as videos of Bellandur lake catching fire and its froth blocking roads over the past couple of years have gone viral. But Bengaluru's lakes are also famous for another reason: the enormous citizen activism that has led to the protection, rejuvenation and beautification of many of its lakes, and the continued citizen efforts to save and revive the remaining ones. While Hebbal highlights citizen resistance to lake privatisation, lakes such as Kaikondrahalli, Puttenahalli and Jakkur have become success stories of partnerships between the municipal government and local citizen groups, where the former contributes resources and the latter contribute location-specific ideas, awareness building and monitoring.
