Illegal dumping chokes Sarakki lake 18.12.2014 deccanherald.com
Illegal dumping of garbage and debris has posed a major threat to Sarakki lake in JP Nagar even as Karnataka High Court has directed the district authorities to restore the water body by removing encroachments. Every day, trucks line up at Sarakki Lake to dump debris and garbage. As a result, the extent of the lake is shrinking with each passing day. Residents even complained that the garbage contractors are setting the waste on fire instead of sending it to garbage processing units. Eshwarappa of People's Campaign for Right to Water (PCRW), alleged that the dumping of waste into the lake lays bare the truth of BBMP's claim that it has switched to scientific disposal of waste in the City. "The present situation is appalling. It drains down our efforts to save this prestigious lake spread on approximately 84 acres," said Eshwarappa. It was the PCRW, which had approached the Karnataka High Court to save the lake from encroachment and dumping of debris. The High Court had ordered the eviction of ...

Fresh attempt to grab Chikka Kallasandra lake land 18.12.2014 deccanherald.com
Fresh attempts are being made to grab the Chikka Kallasandra lake land at Padmanabhanagar in Bengaluru south taluk barely two months after the demolition of illegal structures on the lake land. Some individuals in an apparent bid to encroach upon the lake land, have put up barbed wire inside the fence erected by the BBMP in the last two days. The extent of fresh encroachment is said to be close to four acres. The lake in Survey Number 76 of Chikka Kallasandra village is spread in 12 acres and 26 guntas and the entire portion was encroached upon. About one-and-half months ago, the BBMP had demolished many illegal structures in the middle of the lake and recovered six acres and 20 guntas of land. The fresh encroachment of about four acres is in the reclaimed land. The BBMP, which is the custodian of the lake, has lodged an online complaint with the Subramanyapura police station in this regard on Wednesday afternoon. When contacted, the Bengaluru South officials expressed their ignorance about the fresh ...

Stay on work at Bellandur-Agara lake fails to deter realtors 8.12.2014 deccanherald.com
The petition pertaining to the encroachment of and construction activity on the Bellandur-Agara lake bed has been shifted to the principal bench of the National Green Tribunal (NGT) in New Delhi. This is likely to delay efforts at saving the water body. The petition was being heard by the NGT in Chennai for the past nine months. It had to be shifted as the judicial member Justice M Chockalingam and expert member Prof R Nagendran have recused themselves from hearing the matter. Although the petitioners smell a rat about the matter being shifted to New Delhi, they say that they are gathering funds to fight the case. Forward Foundation, Praja RAAG and Bangalore Environment Trust filed the petition and in April 2014 got a stay order on the construction activity on the lake bed. The NGT bench had observed that the construction activity will cause irreversible damage to the water body. A spokesperson of the petitioners said that despite the NGT's orders staying the construction work, real estate developers ...

In the lap of Alps 4.12.2014 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Right from my childhood, whenever I saw the picture post-cards of the snow-capped mountains of Switzerland, I would dream of visiting that beautiful country. And my dream came true a while ago. I did not believe that I was going to Zurich, even until I boarded the flight and pinched myself! I was thrilled to watch the heavenly Alps from the flight for miles and miles, with snow splattered here and there, which looked like someone had poured milk over them. Lovely little rivulets and streams flowed in the valleys, pretty little villages/towns were spotted here and there. Green meadows and fields of different shades, with bright brick-coloured tile roofs and while walls in between, were a treat to the eyes. I marvelled at the wonderful transport system of Zurich and was awed by the cleanliness and sparse population. It seems the population of the entire country of Switzerland is almost as much as the population of Bengaluru! Though ugly modern buildings had sprung up here and there, most of the residential ...
