Mysuru's Manish and Bengaluru Urban's Prajna Prakash clinched men's and women's 100 metres' gold respectively on the opening day of the Dasara Games here at the Chamundi Vihar stadium on Friday. Manish, a student of Mahatma Gandha Memorial College in Udupi, clocked 10.6 seconds to edge Bengaluru Urban's K M Aiyappa (10.7 seconds). Local lad Mohammad Paigambar bagged the third spot in 10.8 seconds. Manish thus defended the gold he had won last year. "I am delighted to be the champion for the second straight time. I thank my coach Zaheer Abbas for his guidance," said Manish. If the men's race saw a tight finish, the women's 100 metres was a lopsided affair. Prajna, an employee at the Forest Department in Bengaluru, eased to victory in 11.8 seconds. Mysuru's Apsana Begum (12.00) and Bengaluru's A T Dhaneshwari (12.10) completed the podium. In long jump, athletes from Mysuru topped in the men's and women's sections. T R Anush won the men's gold while the women's crown was bagged by A Priya. A second year ...

Being entrepreneurs, Tanmoy Karmakar from Dhanbad, Jharkhand and Shatarupa Adhikary from Siliguri, West Bengal love the city for reasons other than the pleasant weather and cheerful people. The encouragement the young professionals received was heartening they owe their personal and professional growth to the city. Tanmoy is the director and co-founder of Loadshare Networks and Shatarupa is programme and sales lead with Lunate Technologies. They have a daughter Ishita.

The sweet taste of success 18.9.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Honey is both the nectar from flowers and a term used to express endearment for someone's sweetheart. The twain have combined more seamlessly for G Raju, an ace beekeeper from Harati village in Kolar district. What began as a labour of love years ago has turned into a lifetime passion. Travelling across the State, he maintains over 700 beehive boxes in farms, gardens, orchards and backyards. Honeybees demand nothing from the beneficiaries except some space where their industriousness could blossom uninterrupted. And in turn, they help the farmers increase the yield through pollination. Raju became interested in bees around the turn of the century while working in an apiary in Punjab. Back in Karnataka in 2001, he rented a house in Bengaluru and placed some beehive boxes in the green surroundings. Bees began to hover around and he saw the potential for adding more boxes. A session of training in Bhagamandala in Kodagu led him to take beekeeping as the main source of livelihood. He decided to place beehive ...

People's Problems 17.9.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Repair dusty, muddy road The road from Sahakaranagar railway gate to the railway overbridge and the Hanuman Temple and further to Big Market has become worse as huge pits have formed on it. It needs urgent attention. Around 50 tractors have been carrying and dumping mud on a particular plot in Kodigehalli every day for several months now. We are having a dust problem. Roads have deposits of mud, too. Mala Bhargava Hoarding blocks footpath A large hoarding has been put up on East End Main Road, after the Carmel Convent bus stop, condoling the death of someone in the neighbourhood. The hoarding has blocked the entire footpath and fully masked a government notification. Can anyone put up such hoardings, causing inconvenience to the general public? The BBMP does have rules and regulations about putting up hoardings but it does not have the machinery to enforce them. All over the city, we come across hoardings that express good wishes, happiness and condolences. Since the BBMP is not able to take any action, ...

'I love everything about the city' 17.9.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Many visit India to learn about the culture and to explore the different cities, but Carlos Rodriguez had a different mission. Hailing from Ibi, in the state of Alicante in Spain, Carlos decided to come to India 12 years ago to learn English. "Spanish currency is very expensive in places like the UK and the US, so I chose to come to India to learn. I didn't know anything about the language when I first came here; it took a while but I'm quite confident about my English speaking skills now," he says. After travelling back and forth between the two countries, he decided to make Bengaluru his home two years ago with his wife Paromita Dhar. "I first came to Bengaluru in 2010 with a friend and fell in love with everything about the city — from the weather and trees to the lakes. I realised that it's a lot more comfortable to live in as compared to Delhi or Mumbai," he explains. Carlos works as a freelance teacher of Spanish in international schools as well as a consultant. He says, "Since my wife and I ...
