Sankey lake walkers make plaint against Palike 27.1.2015 deccanherald.com
Walkers at the Sankey lake have filed a complaint with the Upa Lokayukta against the BBMP officials for failing to reopen the western side tank bund gate of the park. The gate was closed for reconstruction of the retaining wall and other civil works around two years ago. The complaint states the western tank bund portion of the lake was closed for the work about a year ago. For about a few months construction activities were going on. However, for the last nine months the work has been totally abandoned. "After the workers stopped coming to the site, the gate which was closed has been left unattended. The electricity was disconnected in view of the work and the stretch is dark since street light is also turned off," the complaint says, adding that there had been several instances of suicide at the spot. 'No display boards' "There is no display board on the nature of civil work that was proposed and no information either about the contractor or the contract period or the funds. The BBMP has neither taken ...

Hyacinth, weeds flourish in Ele Mallappa Shetty lake 27.1.2015 deccanherald.com
Above the thick layer of sewage deposit, water hyacinth and other weeds flourish all over the Ele Mallappa Shetty Lake between Medahalli and Avalahalli on Old Madras Road in the City. Like many other fast disappearing water bodies in the erstwhile "City of 1000 lakes", this lake in 300 acres is on the death row. Once a delight for the nature lovers being a hub of a variety of birds, this water body is struggling for its existence, courtesy the multi-storey apartments in its watershed region, which have not only choked its stormwater drains completely but are letting untreated sewage directly into it. Says Eshwarappa Madivali of Peoples Campaign for Right to Water (PCRW), a non-government organisation, "This is one of the highly contaminated lakes due to the heavy influx of sewage. Builders and developers are letting untreated water directly into the lake without any remorse." If this is not enough, garbage and debris contractors have found this suitable to dump waste material into it. As a result of it, ...

A Majestic delay at key station 25.1.2015 deccanherald.com
Namma Metro's Majestic interchange station, a crucial point where the North-South and East-West corridors intersect, has hit hard rock and quite literally. Not only was work delayed after the tunnel boring machine (TBM) hit the hard rock, but the contractors also had to face another challenge:Tough terrain (lake bed) on which the structure is being constructed. M Sreenivas, a hotelier who owns a shop opposite KSRTC bus stand, says, "First of all, the land on which the station is coming up is a lake-bed and hence it is not an easy terrain to work on. I hear that work will be done in another eight months, we have to only wait and see." He added that people around the area, especially vendors and shop owners, are hoping that the project will be completed soon. N D Gupta, a businessman who owns a shop on BVK Iyengar Road, has this to say: "Efforts should be made to complete the work soon. This project should not have been delayed. Once the station comes up, it will do wonders to reduce the traffic chaos and ...

Take a historical scoop 23.1.2015 Deccan Herald - Supplements
In a city like Bengaluru that is undergoing rapid, demographic changes, a few landmark buildings still stand tall. They are more than just locations and provide the quintessential charm to the City. 'Lakeview Milk Bar' on MG Road is one among them. The story of 'Lakeview' goes back to 1930. Initially, James Charles, a British gentleman, owned an ice cream cart where the present 1 MG Mall is located. He then sold it to Viraj Lal in 1947. The name, 'Lakeview Milk Bar', came about as the place overlooked the Ulsoor Lake. Lakeview was a haven, and people came to indulge in just three flavours of ice-creams — vanilla, chocolate and raspberry — for one anna. Today, apart from the range of exotic ice-cream flavours they offer, such as 'Rose Falooda', 'Strawberry Scoops', 'Joker Man', 'Bloody Mary' and 'Rhapsody Sundae', through expansion, the ice-cream parlour has a variety of options for milkshake lovers, pizza fans, sandwich snackers and burger kings. There are over 50 different combinations of ...
