The muck in the lake 8.9.2014 Deccan Herald - Supplements
While the idol immersion brings an end to the Ganesha celebrations, the polluted lakes and clogged immersion tanks lend it an anti-climax. There were not less than 10,000 immersions in the City over the weekend. But the wooden frames of idols floating in the water bodies stand testimony to the ecological damage.

Adding to the muck are flower garlands and plastic decoratives that come with the idols The BBMP had marked out 35 lakes and more than 100 mobile tanks this year. The bamboo decoratives that lie uncollected beside the lake are picked up by rag pickers or people who resell them or use them for firewood. Savitha Kumari, a rag picker, says, "My husband and I wait for this festival to come. We hire a cart and move around the City just to collect and sell the bamboo decoratives. We get Rs 4,000 for each load in KR Market." People think the government is not doing enough to ensure the debris is cleared on time. Ashok Kumar, a ...
