Corporators rue pathetic condition of lakes 31.7.2014 deccanherald.com
Corporators cutting across party lines expressed their concern over the pathetic condition of lakes, which are fast disappearing due to rampant encroachment and sewage. Raising the issue in the BBMP Council meeting on Wednesday, DJ Halli corporator Sampath Raj drew the attention of the Mayor towards the deteriorating condition of Horamavu lake. Highlighting the encroachment and sewage choking the lake, he urged the Palike administration to initiate measures to fence it. Horamavu corporator Tejaswini Raju endorsed Sampath Rajs statement and pointed that the stormwater drain of the lake has also been encroached upon. Participating in the discussion, Jayamahal corporator M K Gunashekar said the BBMP is custodian of all lakes within the BBMP limits as per a High Court order and sought Palikes action to protect them. He also demanded a White Paper on the lakes. The JD(S) floor leader R Prakash squarely blamed the multi-storey apartments for the poor condition of lakes. He also held the Town Planning section ...

Scientist claims to have developed cost-effective plant to purify polluted lakes 30.7.2014 deccanherald.com
A cost effective plant that can purify polluted lakes has been developed by scientist Rajah Vijay Kumar. The plant, which took four years to build, has been successfully tested in December last year, he claimed. The technology, designed for wasted water recovery and management, known as Fine Particle Shortwave Thrombolytic Agglomeration Reactor (FPSTAR), uses zero chemicals and has ability to remove toxic substances such as heavy metals, ammonia, sulphur compounds, bacteria, fungus among others from water, he explained. Unlike sewage treatment plants (STP) and effluent treatment plants (ETP), the water processed by the plant can be used for drinking or recycling, he said. It does need much space and can be set up over the waterbody without disturbing its flow, he added. Stating that he has been approached by a Mexico delegation to set up the plant at one of their polluted rivers 'Rio Lerma,', he rued that he has not been approached by civic authorities from City yet.

Finally, Hop On Hop Off service starts clicking 30.7.2014 deccanherald.com
Almost two months after relaunching the "Bangalore Rounds- Hop On Hop Off" sightseeing bus service for tourists, the BMTC officials say that the service is picking up well. The service clocked a collection of Rs 53,000 in a single day on July 20, perhaps indicating its raising popularity. This is the highest revenue since the launch of the service. However, in spite of things looking up for the service, the BMTC has cut down on the number of trips and has reduced number of visiting places in the itinerary. The promotional discount of Rs 50 to Rs 100 which was valid till July 15, has been extended further. Accordingly, the tickets which were priced at Rs 250 for adults and Rs 150 for children would now cost Rs 150 and Rs 100 respectively. According to the officials, the buses which were previously operating till 10.30 pm, now end the trip at 9 pm. Nagawara Lake/Lumbini Gardens is now off the itinerary. Senior officials in the BMTC say that the trip timings were cut down since most of the tourist places in ...

BDA disowns 'illegal' layout, land encroachers appropriate it 30.7.2014 deccanherald.com
The condition of the erstwhile Venkatarayana Kere atGubbalala village inUttarahalli has gone from bad to worse. As if the encroachment by Bangalore Development Authority (BDA), which formed the 'lake bed layout' on it was not sufficient, land sharks are out to grab the remaining portion of the lake land and huge tracts of government and BDA lands adjacent to it. For the past few weeks, hectic activities were noticed around the lake (Sy No 8). The nefarious designs of the land grabbers came to the fore when they started fencing the government land. This happened a month after the BDA Town Planning member A V Rangesh confessed in his written reply to an RTI query that the Authority formed the layout on the lake bed illegally and that the BDA Board would not approve it. His confession came after the Bangalore South tahsildar, in his reply to an RTI query, said that the layout was formed illegally without seeking the consent of the Revenue department. Ever since the BDA disowned the land, the layout has ...

Nestling in calm comfort 26.7.2014 Deccan Herald - Supplements
With the unfortunate sobriquet 'poor man's Ooty' hanging heavy over its head, it would seem like Yercaud doesnt stand a chance. Maybe, people don't give it a chance, treating it as a day-trip option. Sure, it's used by Salem-ites as an extension of their city. Sure, it does not feel as exotic as a hill station is supposed to. Sure, you don't have to travel as much as you'd expect for it to feel like a holiday. But, maybe that's what prevented it from developing much. Excessive creature comforts are missing — you don't have a choice of twenty hotels to stay in, not many options for eating out or entertainment, and no roads lined with shops for retail therapy. Now that I've told you what Yercaud is not, you probably are wondering what Yercaud is all about. It helps that Yercaud is easily accessible from Bangalore. At the end of the short drive, my introductory view of Yercaud was the noisy area around the lake; I immediately doubted the sagacity of coming here to relax. At check-in, they were ...
