BMC claims only 3% water unfit 25.9.2017 DNA: Opinion
If you are one of the residents who has complained about the BMC's water supply being contaminated, think again. According to the civic body's latest Environment Status Report (ESR) 2016-17, only three percent of the collected samples from all 24 administrative wards and 27 service reservoirs was found unfit for consumption. This fares better than last year's samples wherein four percent of the water was found contaminated and in 2014-15, it was worse at 4.4 percent. The report says that the R-South ward of Kandivli supplied the cleanest water during this period, as no contamination was found in the water samples analysed. Ironically, the maximum contamination, standing at nine percent, was in the upmarket A-ward which comprises Colaba, Churchgate and CST. This was followed by T-ward (Mulund) at 7 percent and F-South (Parel, Sewree and Dadar) and H-West (Bandra) with 6 percent of unfit water samples. The BMC supplies 3,750 million litres of water to Mumbai city and suburban areas daily. Of this, around ...

A place called home 24.9.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
A native of The Netherlands, Martijn Rauwers and his wife Jasmin Beverwijk moved to Bengaluru with their children - Simon and Lisa - a year and a half ago. It was at Jasmin's instance that the family came here and now they are more than happy to call Bengaluru their second home. The family lived in Arnhem, a small town close to the border of Germany. Martijn met Jasmine at Wageningen University in The Netherlands. Martijn works for a startup that specialises in sustainable business models for healthy cities, food supply chains, waste, energy and water infrastructure back home but is currently on a break. Jasmin was born in Mymensingh, Bangladesh, but doesn't remember anything of her life in that country. "I was brought to an orphanage in Dhaka, when there was famine and chaos there, Bangladesh had just become independent of Pakistan. When I was about two years old I was adopted by a Dutch couple who I consider as my natural parents," says Jasmine, who has lived and travelled across the world. Jasmine had ...

In homage to water... 23.9.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The sprawling garden was in full bloom that swayed and sighed in the soft afternoon breeze, enticing us to take a leisurely stroll. But it was the 11th century Rani-ki-vav (Queen's stepwell) within the premises that had drawn us to Patan in Gujarat, and we could not wait to explore it. Recognised as the UNESCO World Heritage site in 2014, it's the finest example of all the stepwells in India. Patan has today become synonymous with Rani-ki-vav and Patola saris. However, the ruins scattered within the remnants of its fortified walls also give a glimpse of the grandeur and glory it once enjoyed under the 600-year-rule of the Chavda and the Solanki rulers between the 8th and 14th centuries. The old city of Patan, also known as Anhilwad Patan (or Anhilpur Patan), seems to have completely vanquished with time. Founded by Vanraj Chavda in 745 AD as the capital of Gujarat, it reached its zenith under the Solanki rulers Bhimdeva, Karnadeva and Siddharaja Jayaimha. Its fate was sealed by successive invasions and ...

The Federation of Apartment Associations Bengaluru (FAAB) has criticised the diktat on the compulsory installation of sewage treatment plants (STPs) in old apartments with 50 flats and more. In March, the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) took the decision on the compulsory installation of STPs and set aSeptember 9 deadline. However, 912 apartments in Bengaluru are yet to instal the STPs. The BWSSB will fine them 25% of water charges now, 50% after three months and 100% after nine months. The water board has extended the deadline to December 31, 2017.
