Tenders for restoring lakes soon: Minister 16.3.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The government will soon call tenders to implement recommendations of an expert committee to restore Bellandur and Varthur lakes. Replying to a query by Ramachandra Gowda (BJP) in the Council, Bengaluru Development Minister KJGeorge said the recommendations include putting in place aerators and removal of weeds. Bellandur lake has been in the news after froth covered its surface due to high pollution. George said ramps will be constructed at the waste weir in Bellandur lake to control the outflow of foam.

Amidst the whispering palms 15.3.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Where could we go for a weekend getaway to de-stress from the city life? We want to just fill our petrol tank, pack our toothbrush and buzz..." This was our question to a seasoned Bangalorean. And pat came the reply, "You don't need a full tank nor even your toothbrush. Go to Holiday Village, 50 km from your home in Koramangala." And we were given directions to get there. The leafy landscaped acres of this resort, its water fountains gurgling, the coconut fronds whispering in the breeze, and the cottages discreetly hidden behind foliage were what made the 'Holiday Village' a special weekend getaway for us. Early morning, we saw sun birds, red whiskered bulbuls making their chuckle-chew sounds, and wagtails. We walked on cobbled pathways round the rustic environs. Where is it located? And all this, just 50 km away from our home in Koramangala! We drove towards Banashankari Temple and then on to Kanakapura Road. We got off at 9th mile, Kanakapura Road, turned left for Vajrahalli village (landmark Godrej ...
