New lease of life for Herohalli lake 22.9.2014 deccanherald.com
After facing resistance from vested interests, an endangered lake in west Bangalore is finally on its way to restoration with police protection and support from a section of public-spirited locals. One of the last few along Magadi Road, the Herohalli lake would be open to the public in six months after complete restoration. The Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), which is spearheading the effort since 2012, has doggedly gone ahead with restoration work despite problems created by suspected land-grabbers in the area. "We initially constructed pavements, built three gates and walls. Land-grabbers destroyed them and took away the construction material. Some people dumped construction material by breaching the security fence. A gate was destroyed. Because of this, we have now taken the help of the local police and Home Guards," said a BBMP official. The BBMP allocated Rs 11 crore for the restoration. Owing to the impediments, an additional Rs 10.31 lakh was allocated recently. The Palike has till now ...

Chicken down the drain 21.9.2014 deccanherald.com
Tonnes of meat waste generated by hundreds of unauthorised slaughterhouses in the city bypass the BBMP's already overstretched disposal mechanism. Dumped in open spaces and sewage drains, the decaying muck raises a deadly stink. Sunday, 6.30 am: Fresh from his three-km brisk walk, Sumit stepped into Shivajinagar's stately Russell Market for his weekend shopping with gusto. It was then the stink from the carcass stockpiles hit him, mercilessly overpowering his senses, throwing his morning plans totally out of gear. The city's pathetic non-vegetarian waste disposal system had scored, yet again! Packed in bags of every size and dumped in an open space next to the market, waste from chicken, mutton stalls and illegal slaughter spots in and around Shivajinagar form a putrid mountain of decay. Raising a stink that rivals Mandur, this decomposing muck traps the shopkeepers and customers alike, before a BBMP truck drives in. Already trapped in a garbage management system gone wayward, the Palike is apparently in ...

Teachers' plaint against official boomerangs 20.9.2014 deccanherald.com
Three primary schoolteachers from Kolar wanted to expose a supposedly corrupt official in the Department of Public Instruction (DPI) but ended up being pulled up by the Minister of State for Primary and Secondary Education, Kimmane Ratnakar, who was rather keen on testing their general knowledge. The teachers—Reddappa, Srinivas and K V Nanjunde Gowda—had arrived in the City to take part in an interaction organised by the Congress party at the KPCC office on Friday to enable its workers to air their grievances, if any. Ratnakar, along with Minor Irrigation Minister, Shivaraj Tangadagi, was there to lend an ear. The teachers complained to Ratnakar about a superintendent at the office of the Deputy Director of Public Instruction (DDPI) who was demanding bribe to clear their medical bills. They urged him to transfer the official. But Ratnakar was not quite pleased with their outspokenness. Instead of looking into the complaint, he started testing the teachers' general knowledge. "Tell me when ...

This family starved for three days, slept on terrace 15.9.2014 deccanherald.com
A family from Bangalore had to wait for more than a week to return to the City from the flood-hit Kashmir due to the mad rush at the helipad and airport in Srinagar. The residents from Shantinagar managed to leave the boat house in which they were staying in the nick of time, before it submerged in water. They starved for three days and slept on terraces, before they were airlifted to the Air Force station in Srinagar. Stanley Bhasme, along with 30 others, landed in Srinagar on September 5. They were staying on the third floor of the boat house in Dal Lake before water gushed in and filled two floors. With the help of a few Kashmiris, they were ferried to a safer location. After this, they walked eight kilometres to reach the helipad at the Raj Bhavan. "It was a mad rush at the helipad, with Army men caning the crowd. There were over 80,000 people waiting to be airlifted to the airport," said Bhasme. In search of food and shelter, the family walked another three km to find a place to stay till the crowd ...
