People's problems... 23.4.2017 deccanherald.com
Rainwater channel cemented The space between the asphalted road and the rainwater channel at SV Layout, 2nd Main, Sanjaynagar, has been concretised. With groundwater level receding everywhere, the BBMP should take steps to dig percolation pits along rainwater/stormwater channels so that rainwater will percolate down through the ground instead of running off. Muralidharan S ****************************************************************************** Hotels pump sewage into drain Four hotels are located between Hope Farm, Whitefield, and Prashanth Layout. All of them discharge sewage into an open drain closeby. One of the establishments, Adyar Anand Bhavan, openly pumps sewage water into the open drain using a high-power pump during the day. The result is that the entire stretch stinks the whole day. Will the authorities concerned look into the matter and crack down on the errant hotels?

Parked out of basements 22.4.2017 deccanherald.com
Maximise every inch of commercial space. Say goodbye to building bye-laws. Making a mockery of existing laws, shops have occupied basements across the city, shifting parking spaces to the road. Can a city with its roads traffic-clogged beyond redemption afford this deed by design? In Jayanagar, Gandhinagar, Koramangala or Indiranagar, the violations are damningly out in the open. Yet, the civic agencies turn a blind eye. Does that indicate a nexus, a well-oiled machinery that involves builders, business interests, corporators and the bureaucracy? As motorists spend hours trapped in traffic chaos, the parked vehicles remain the source of many such congestions. If the Namma Metro pillars have eaten up a big chunk of the road width, these illegal parking slots have made it even tougher to get past those streets. Violation by design Typically, buildings designed as commercial complexes do provide a basement free of any structures. But once the necessary approvals are obtained, the shops emerge later, ...

Three more parking lots in central business district 22.4.2017 deccanherald.com
The BBMP will shortly construct three multi-storeyed buildings in the city's Central Business District (CBD) for vehicular parking. Congestion on roads will reduce once the buildings are functional as they accommodate large vehicles, said HomeMinister GParameshwara."Besides, the Bengaluru police have taken up a drive to clear unclaimed vehicles parked in front of police stations. The police have already auctioned over 8,000 vehicles so far," he told DH. The police, he said, are required to obtain permission from the court and auction the vehicles. "Most vehicles will be auctioned shortly based on the court's permission," the minister added. Unclaimed vehicles and those seized after accidents are parked right in front of traffic police stations, clogging roads. There was a proposal to identity four big venues in the city to park the seized and unclaimed vehicles when K JGeorge was HomeMinister. However, the idea did not materialise. In the past, police made an unsuccessful attempt to keep the unclaimed ...

NGT order on lake hailed, locals want industries shut 19.4.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The National Green Tribunal's (NGT) order on cleaning the polluted Bellandur lake within a month has given a new ray of hope to local residents. They expect the state government to shut down the industries seen as the "biggest source" of sewage flow to Bengaluru's largest lake. K Jagannath, a former president of Bellandur gram panchayat, said the NGT order could not have come at a more opportune moment as the government was dragging its feet over reviving the lake in spite of admonition from the high court. "We are happy that the NGT has ordered the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) to shut down the industries as they are the biggest source of sewage flow to the lake," he added. Srinivas R, a resident of Yemalur, said the government could clean up the lake in "two or three weeks" if it showed intent. A large amount of silt needs to be removed from the bottom of the lake, he added. Local residents say the lake gets sewage not only from industries in Bellandur and the adjacent areas but also ...

All in the game 19.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Thursday
This picture was taken at a friend's house in Bengaluru in 1985. It was clicked during a get-together when a few of my friends and athletes came to the city to attend a competition. I did my schooling from Christ the King Convent in Mysuru, and later went to study at Maharani's College for Women there. I got my first international exposure during the 1982 Asian Games in Delhi. I continued to train at the Kanteerava Stadium when I moved to Bengaluru in 1984 after getting married. I trained in heptathlon there. I lived in Richmond Town and the stadium was only a three-minute walk from home. I used to go to the stadium on the moped. Seen in the picture is myself along with my close friends Ashwini Nachappa, her sister Pushpa and Vandana Rao. Seen there is also Rupinder Singh, a middle and long-distance runner. A few other friends were also with us. Ashwini began training after she moved to Bengaluru from Kolkata in the early 80s. We would spend time together during the national camps held in Patiala and ...

Pipeline work at Anepalya Junction worsens traffic woes 18.4.2017 Deccan Herald - News
A massive pipeline work at the Anepalya Junction is the latest addition to the city's growing traffic woes. Office-goers using the Anepalya Road are forced to take diversion to Dairy Circle junction due to the work. The BWSSB is laying a sanitary pipeline from Adugodi to Anepalya through which the drainage water will flow to the city's sewage treatment plant. The construction work is expected to be completed by the end of this month, say authorities. "We have laid an underground drainage pipeline that connects City Market to our sewage treatment plant. Work on pipeline connectivity between Anepalya and Adugodi Junction is currently in progress. The work is happening round the clock and will be completed in a week," said Ramakrishna S M, chief engineer, waste water management zone, BWSSB. "As a solution for the traffic congestion, we have created diversions for traffic coming from Anepalya. However, the traffic coming from Dairy Circle will be one way. The pipeline work is expected to be completed by the ...

A rush to the top 18.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Almost every mountaineer has 'climb Mount Everest' on their bucket list, and that includes a whole lot of Bengalureans. With Nepalese officials bracing up for a 'traffic jam' at Mount Everest this season, mountaineers and trekkers from Bengaluru have been expressing their concerns. They are worried about the after effects of the surge in the number of people rushing to rushing to the top. Swathi Chatrapathy, a video series hostess in the city, says, "I trek three times a year and it is a different experience each time. Ihave never climbed Mount Everest but Ican imagine how crowded it would be. Even on the smaller peaks I have scaled, Ihave seen how human waste pollutes the area as there is no proper facility. Apart from this, kitchen waste also accumulates and ruins the beauty of the place." "Climbers should make sure to pick up the plastic waste after themselves or try not to carry any plastic at all. In India, there are a few organisations who manage the cleaning up. If the government can also pitch ...
