Connecting the dots 9.8.2016 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The first installment in the Disney Fairies franchise gave us the character of Tinker Bell &mdash; a fairy whose talent is to mend or make things. Even in the utopian fairytale world, this is considered to be a very 'uncool' thing to do. Need we say more about the attitude of us mere mortals, especially today where buying brand new things has become somewhat of an obsession for image-conscious people. In these times, a concept like 'repair cafe' comes as a whiff of fresh air. Repair cafes are free meeting places where people can bring their broken stuff and get it repaired. There will be expert volunteers as well as the necessary tools and materials to help one make any repairs they need. There are over a thousand such repair cafes worldwide. And our own Bengaluru has one too. Says Antara Mukherji, one of the co-founders of the cafe here, "There have been many talks about the garbage problem in this city and how to tackle the issue of overflowing landfills. Contrary to what most people feel, recycling is ...

It's time to act... 8.8.2016 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Extreme weather patterns and overcrowded cities have made the life-giving monsoons something like a life-wrecker! Floods, droughts, displaced people and the economics of devastation make for a serious destabilising force. In the past year alone, the whole of South Asia has been devastated by floods. This overpopulated part of the world has been bearing the brunt of climate change and El Nino for years now. From forest fires and parched farms to flooded cities, landslides and displaced people, climate change is in our face. Hence, committing to eco-friendly lifestyle and controlling the emission of greenhouse gases in order to keep global temperatures down needs to be a priority. Sustainable development, eco-friendly agriculture, afforestation, revival of carbon-absorbing wetlands and water-bodies &mdash; all need to be given preference in government policies and everyday practices. These methods create carbon sinks that have the power to curb global warming. Adaptation strategies Sikkim has gone 100% ...
