One city, many towns 13.11.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Cities are like people. Just as a persons character is not fixed but is determined by context, so it is with cities. Like people, they are not homogeneous. This is certainly true of Bengaluru. With multiple centres, multiple histories and multiple trajectories, Bengaluru is really several different, coexisting cities. You could wake up in one Bengaluru, have lunch in another and your evening tea in a third. How things have changed in 500 years. Or have they? Back in 1537, when Kempegowda established the city of Bengaluru, it is said that he invited traders and people in various professions to his new capital. Like other medieval Indian cities, Bengaluru too was organised according to occupation, with each locality devoted to one trade or profession. One of the earliest descriptions of Bengaluru comes to us from the Marathi poet Paramanand who, in the late 1600s, described the city in his poem. He talks of whitewashed mansions and great markets, of watchtowers and turrets, of deep lakes and fountains in ...

Maker of Mavallipura landfill figures in 43-year-old 'lake grab' 6.11.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The man credited with giving Bengaluru the infamous landfill concept is now accused of a lake grab scam that unfolded over 43 years. The Karnataka Lake Conservation and Development Authority (KLCDA) has directed the authorities to initiate action against S B Hanumantharayappa, a class-1 contractor, for allegedly encroaching on 5.13 acres of Nanjundapura Lake near Yelahanka, four decades after his family first laid claim to the water body, documents show. The lake is located in survey number 64/1 of Jarakabande Kaval village, Yelahanka hobli in Bengaluru North taluk. The KLCDA authorities, after an inspection, found that Hanumantharayappa had dug a borewell to pump the lake water out. On October 25, KLCDA chief executive officer Seema Garg directed the Vadderahalli panchayat to "fence the lake, clear the encroachment and take action". The lake is not far from the Mavallipura landfill, where Hanumantharayappa allowed the BBMP to dump the citys waste on a piece of land he claimed he owned. It was in ...

The Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) has issued show-cause notices to 59 apartment complexes around Bellandur and Varthur lakes in Southeastern Bengaluru following a month-long survey and as per the directions of the National Green Tribunal (NGT). The notices have been issued for not complying with the Air and Water Acts and releasing untreated water into the lake.

Pedalling down memory lane 1.11.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
This photograph was taken in 1974 at Hotel Chalukya, Basaveshwara Circle in Bengaluru. I was serving in Indian Telephone Industries Ltd (later ITI Ltd) at that time. The picture was taken during the farewell party of the in-charge, G Parthasarathy, when he superannuated from the services of ITI Ltd. I have lived in Bengaluru all my life and spent most of my growing up years in and around Bellandur (near HAL Airport). I completed my primary school from Bellandur village and middle school at HAL Sanitary Board Middle School in Yemalur near HAL New Town Airport. In 1957, I joined Acharya Patashala in Narasimha Raja Colony (NR Colony), Basavanagudi to finish my high school. Those days, I used to walk around four kilometres from home to HAL bus stand, crossing vast and barren lands. In the 1950s, Bellandur Lake was in good condition with clean water. We used to enjoy watching sea planes landing and taking off from the lake. After completing my education, I joined the Indian Army and travelled to many places ...
