Reviving the tradition of 'kattas' 5.2.2018 Deccan Herald - Supplements
While some people show concern about rivers getting dry within months after the monsoon season, some just blame it on various factors. Rare are people who dont limit themselves to such blame games, but work towards improving the situation. One such effort was made in Hosangadi village in Dakshina Kannada district. A group of people comprising students, villagers and members of Rotary Club joined hands to build a mini check dam, locally known as katta, across River Phalguni. The idea of building a katta occurred to Hariprasad, a member of Hosangadi Gram Panchayat. "Earlier it was common to build kattas across streams and rivers in the coastal region. While they retained water in the river basin, they also helped enhance water level. Gradually, this practice disappeared due to the easy availability of water. As a result, our wells would also dry soon after the monsoons," he says. Rotary Club in Moodbidri decided to collaborate when the members heard about the plan. Similarly, students of NSM Polytechnic ...

Kere Habba by the Prakriya Green Wisdom School, Doddakannelli, Sarjapur Road, celebrated the spirit of lakes around Bengaluru, especially the ones near the school. The students are on a mission to revive Hadosiddapura lake, which they fear, might die a slow death.

It is a seasonal lake with several species of fish, birds and plants thriving. The cattle egret, the Yellow-wattled lapwing and the kingfisher are most commonly found birds here. While acacia and tamarind trees are abundant, a huge eucalyptus forest is also present near the lake bed. REVIVAL PLAN Siddharth ...
